I am at 44 days into the transformation and tomorrow starts the downhill side. I started at 200 lbs. and am now at 192 which does not sound like a lot of weight loss but according to Tom in my 4 week evaluation I gained 16 lbs. of muscle and lost 24 lbs of fat. I also lost 6.5 inches of girth and hydration is up over 50%. Just like the stories I read before I started the program it’s working and I feel great.
But the best part is going from a 36 inch waist to a 32. Time to go shopping.
It should be noted that 2 weeks in I pretty much lost my left knee which has been problematic since I was a teenager. 3 surgeries and severe arthritis has left it a mess. This cut out not only shuffling but even walking. I continued the diet as well as rising early as usual to work out with weights, twists and a gentle walking in place motion to get my heart rate up. Never missed a day. With the help of a great doctor the knee is 95% again and I am shuffling outside one hour each morning and have been for one week. Resistance training was the hardest to get used to but that is also working well too.
I used to travel overseas with groups of people for periods of eight weeks to two. There was always a very pronounced physiological phenomenon, no matter how long the trip, the last portion of the first half. A kind of depression borne from the stress of travel and being away from home and responsibilities. It happened to everybody and some even got very, very down. But something magical happened after the halfway point as smiles appeared, jokes were told and these glass half empty people became optimists again. The half time factor. It’s been similar with the transformation. Week 5 and 6 were hard. I wanna pizza, tired of all this water, I want to drink beer and watch football with the guys. Sleeping in would be nice.
But tomorrow is 2nd half time and the roar is rising in my ears. I’m halfway there and the second part is not only going to be easier it’s who I am now.
Thanks to all of you folks for your help and support. Now it’s time to finish building this house.
