Wow!!! I just don't get it. I can't imagine that I lost that much last week. I didn't just lose in pounds, but also in waist size which translates to body fat ratio. I sure didn't starve myself this week or anything. I did ditch that other eating plan, but I am still using the whey protein. The only thing I can figure is that I was bloated or something. There must have been some water weight involved in this loss.
I know. I know. Some of you are thinking, "What's with all the second guessing. I would be elated with 5.4 lb. loss. Who cares why? This Half Man guy is a real idiot!"
Well, I am thrilled. I am happy that things are on track. But, I also want to remain realistic about what is happening to me and my body.
I looked back to my first few months of weight loss. I could not find a time that I lost more than 4.8 lbs. in a week. That was when I was in the 300's which would be the time I would expect to lose more week to week. I know at some point I did lose more than 5 in a week. That only happened once or twice, and I don't have time to search my archives any more. I should have made use of labels (Doh!).
The bottom line is that I am much happier with my previous (and now current) eating habits. I feel good. I had a great 7 mile run on Saturday. This week, I plan to up that 8 miles. And to top it all off, I had a freakin' 5.4 lb. loss and a 1 inch waist loss. I am just one tenth of a pound away from losing one third my original body weight. Actually, it will be two tenths since that's how my scale weighs. I am sure that next week, I will be two-thirds man, lol!
