60 MIN CHALLENGE – DAY 22

If you are trying to lose weight like me, you are prob amazed how how much effort it is. I am doing intermittent fasting 4 to 5 days a week, eating my regular breakfast and some nuts, and then not eating until the next day. I’ve found this, combined with at least 3 to 4 days a week on the treadmill, like today, are the only way for me to get to my weight loss of 1lb from last weeks weigh in.

That just amazes me because it means a massive cut in calories, as well as an increase in work, and while I totally get that reducing calories, while burning more calories, makes sense in terms of weight loss, the part that amazes me is the extent to which I was overeating, all while thinking I was being reasonable.

Old me would have a bagel or oatmeal for breakfast, have a sandwich or soup for lunch, and eat a full dinner, all with a few beers thrown in here and there.

It is no wonder I got up to almost 300lbs at one point, I had no idea how little my body really needed, and while I knew at a certain point I was fat, it honestly happened slowly enough that my pants just got bigger as I bought new clothes and I wasn’t weighing myself regularly, so it kind of “snuck up on me”. I know it sounds crazy, but it wasn’t until my back injury made me really look at my weight as an issue that I realized just how big I’d gotten. I have a big fame, so I hide weight very easily.

So, if you are going through this too, I know how hard it is, and encourage you to stick with it. We are literally adding yours onto our lives.
