I was born in 1960....
But I've only been (airquotes) "alive" a short while...
I expect some ups and downs with a weight loss diet...
Some non-compliance.... some strict adhering...
And some impossible outcomes.
When I was a Music Major in college, some days there
was just no explaining the progress - or lack thereof.
Same with this.
Progress is not linear.
And sometimes I think the body is gonna do what it will...
regardless of how much we want it to do what we want it to do.
Same clothes... Higher weight...
More muscles - yes... and a few more pounds.
9 - to be exact.
Since starting CrossFit I have back gained 9 pounds of fat.
Still overweight. Still working - every day!
Some people say that LowCarb has a built-in "stop point."
Well, they say that about all diets.
Morbid Obesity doesn't really ever "cure" itself.
Some people say too few carbs are to blame.
Forces the body into a state of gluconeogenisis -
which breaks down the muscles... not the stored fat...
Some say too many carbs are to blame.
No more wine with dinner, eh?
Or too FEW calories. Starvation Mode.
Too much stress. Too little sleep. Cortisone.
Some say the last 20 pounds are "skin" that will never
come off - except by surgery. The Omentum.
Or is it Micros. Macros. All that jazz.
Thyroid. Head Injury. Desire.
I think I naturally weigh in a little lighter in the summer months.
Some of it is posture - all those adjustments!
Some of it is from all those squats! *wink*
I have often wondered if true health "looks" more like a size 12 -
than maybe - a size 4!
We just don't know enough about what anything is for -
to make any factual statement about losing weight...
and keeping it off... except to say that it's never easy!
All my stats.... this time I am up an inch or two all around.
I added dates to the pic... This is me - from the start. (link)
Some people might lose a pound a day... I am more the type
to lose a pound a week - and be grateful for even that!
That's ok... I'm finally ok with it.
Cuz I know it's not over till
well, you know.... till the Fat Lady sings!
I've always wanted to say that!
