You may have gathered by the title what this little post is about, if you haven’t let me enlighten you, it is mostly about my EXTREME WEIGHT LOSS over the last week. In my last post I mentioned that I was now on a diet and going to the gym again. I have decided to do so because my weight has now gone all the way up to 97 kilograms (214 pounds) and I feel really uncomfortable in my own skin.
I think one of the deciding factors was trying to tie my shoelaces and having trouble getting over the bulge (mind out the gutter, I mean my stomach / stomachs ) which separates my upper bits from my lower bits. Another was losing site of everything which lives below the aforementioned stomach (OK you can put your mind back in the gutter again).
I am happy to report that I have met with quite a degree of success with my weight loss over the last week, which is why I have dubbed it EXTREME WEIGHT LOSS!!! I even think it actually merits all 3 of the exclamation points I end it with. Over the last 7 days or so (since we started traveling I have a hard time remembering just how many days pass or even what day we are on, it’s great), I have lost a grand total of 4.5 kilograms ( 10 pounds). Now that is what I call EXTREME WEIGHT LOSS!!!
I know it will slow down, and a lot of the weight loss is more a testament to how much over my ideal weight my body is than how well I am doing, but it feels good to drop a large portion of my distended gut anyway. It also feels good to see some reward from my almost complete embargo on Carbohydrates (Sarah says I have to eat my vegetables) and giving up sleep ins in favor of gym sessions.
So I am down to around 92.5 kilograms, and I would really like to lose another 10, but I think those 10 will be a lot harder fought for than the 4.5 I just lost. Especially because it is Christmas, and especially because I am on the verge of killing someone for a piece of flan.
What can I say, EXTREME WEIGHT LOSS!!! comes at a price, but when the dust settles and I am hopefully at a new svelte weight of 83 kilograms, I can start pigging out all over again and get that sense of satisfaction which only an overdose of simple carbohydrates can supply. Which when it comes down to it is truly why I put myself through this.
