Week 20 Results

We are bad people. Tonight we went in to weigh in and pick up our food, but then saw that instead of our class we were having the personal trainer guy who came in before actually run people through exercises tonight, instead of a class. I got so very little out of it last time he came in, the level was set so very basic for people who have never experienced exercise before, that I just couldn’t do it. I’d already gone for a run earlier in the afternoon, I was hungry, and the last time this guy was in it was a total waste of time, so we ducked out. Bad, bad people. I know.

  • Change this period: -1.5 pound
  • Total change so far: -46.5 pounds
  • Current weight: 188 pounds

I’m very pleased with my results. I added in oatmeal for breakfast the last two days and my body has shown me in no uncertain terms that it likes this change. I’ve been less hungry, more satisfied all day long, and overall much happier now that I’ve decided to throw their exchange dictates out the window and go with what I know works. And hey – my body seems to like it much better too.

My husband is having a harder time. He has a killer commute now to his new(ish) job, which doesn’t leave much time for exercise, or for food planning. So tonight we’re working on changes he can make that are more supportive. He’s going to start by making up some overnight oatmeal to take with him in the morning, being more diligent about writing down his intake throughout the day on the check-list I whipped up, and we’ll look for opportunities for more walks and sneaking runs in during the week for him. More exercise, more food planning, and journaling – these are the tools that I know work.

    I can relate to the killer commute being an assassin of exercise. What I do is not beat myself up when I get home late and can’t exercise. I focus on when I CAN exercise, and then work my considerable butt off. Weekends when I’m in town and off-Fridays have become my routine. When I’m out of town and away from my “gym” I try to get lots of walking in, just so I keep moving. When I know I can’t get it done every day, I push myself harder on the days I can.

    Wow! You look great. I’m on week 4 of Optifast and haven’t weighed in yet this week, but as of last week I’d lost 12 pounds. I’m following you! 🙂
