I had this graphic made years ago. The overweight pic looks amazingly similar to my before pic from 5 months ago.
I weighed in today the lightest I have been in a very long time. I have lost over a sixth of me. A few weeks ago I hit a little bit of a plateau with the weight loss. So I ate more and exercised less. My body was recognizing that it needed nutrients and to recover. This isn't the strategy for everyone but it worked for me in this part of the process. I'm not completely focused on weight as weight isn't fat necessarily. I have tried to post that all over this site. It is does give me good information though.
Things I'm learning
What I thought was loose skin was fat
I clearly have loose skin around my belly but I'm not sure if or when it will go away. I have so many stretch marks from when I got fat as a kid. Stretch marks are a real issue. I don't care about the look its feeling like I'm wearing a skin hoody that is the problem.
I also tent to look at fat and toxin storage like a pond where everything settles on the bottom. The fat I am tapping into now is the oldest and potentially most toxic. The amount of weight I'm losing is less as I lose more which makes sense. I did get sick this week with a head cold. Not that big a deal but I feel like I'm processing a lot of toxins and it's weakening me.
The last mile of the marathon is the hardest one. I know I need to keep loosing fat for a few more weeks just to tap into this deep layer. If I don't do it now I will have to come all the way back here some other time. Defiantly more hungry lately but able to eat way less in my window. I have found that taking activated charcoal at night helps with detox. I cycle DMSA and take 600mg of NAC everyday to keep my glutathione levels up.
