Weight-Loss at 3 Weeks
Here are the numbers for the first 3 weeks and everything looks good. The total weight-loss of 8.90 kg/19.58 lbs always surprises me. I have remind myself that I have quite a bit of weight to lose and its fun 🙂
The good thing with being on vacation is I have complete control of everything including time. It certainly makes it easier. The first 2 weeks are a detox period that I use a simple method to detox and detox for me means to get rid of all the cravings I have for other types of food like bread, sugar, alcohol and even milk. After the 2nd week, I follow a 90/10 plant based program that I built myself. I am reading to be better and the last 2 books I am indulging myself are found here: Tools
|Total KG Lost||Total LB Lost||BP: Systolic||Resting Pulse|
All systems are go, all numbers are down except the pulse – it always hoovers around 58 regardless. I need to get my cholesterol checked again, last time my good cholesterol number was low.
Via friends and online, I get questions about what am I eating and AM I HUNGRY?
I will say the following – it is a shift from eating and drinking whatever and whenever to being extra disciplined in my consumption of food. This is why(for me) the 2 week detox is super important – it sharpens my focus and removes cravings. Week 3 and onward is not a challenge, seriously.
Also, I am exactly eating more – I took a picture of lunch from yesterday. Huge salad with beans and balsamic dressing. Sometimes I had some feta or a little cold cuts but this a TON of food.
So no starving, I eat as much fruits and vegetables that I want and add beans, flax seed and other items.
