I bought a treadmill.
Set it up in the garage.
Rarely used it.
Then I bought five heavy-duty steel shelving units.
Set them up in the garage
Filled them with books.
I am on that treadmill all the damn time now.
Lost 100 lbs in the last year.
Now that I’ve hit goal weight, the nutrition program diversifies a bit and good carbs come op, but protein is still my focus macro. 32g for 358 kcal in this delightful thrice-weekly fast-breaker.
I had friends, relations, dieticians, and even physicians telling me that without surgery I was doomed to a life of obesity.
I am grateful beyond words that they were all wrong, grateful for the unfailing support of my family, and grateful for the loving help of G-d.
Starting weight: 355 lbs (161.4kg)
Goal weight: 220 lbs (100kg)
Today’s weight: 219 lbs (99.6 kg)
Total weight lost: 136 lbs (61.8 kg)
Thank G-d for small miracles.
Foods I don’t eat anymore: Caesar salad. Too often they’re more like “Cheese-ar” salads, and even the hard cheeses are off my list. Oh, I’m sure I’ll indulge in a little of the old fromage when we traipse through Europe next year, but as a special treat to be enjoyed on its own, not as an ingredient.
Food I eat now: homemade fajita chicken
Steak and salmon: good.
Couscous and matzah: okay
Needless to say, the cake went undisturbed. I feel bad about wasting. I would feel much worse with it on my waist.
