Big Fella buckaroo weight loss challenge
I don’t think I’m going hit the 40 pound goal.
I know I won’t hit it. I’m sitting at 15 pounds with two weeks to go.
I’m fine with this.
Totally fine. It is what it is. I need to learn from it and move on to the next thing.
Why did I fail? I didn’t work hard enough and I set the bar too high. But y’all know how I do things, right? Go big or go home. I would like to blame moving for my failure. I want to say that was part of it. I just fell off the horse too many times.
I ran a marathon during this period. I didn’t lose a ton of weight, but I set a PR of 5h42m
Things I learned
Exercise alone won’t do this. I need to eat a lot cleaner. A lot cleaner.
Exercise helped with my mental health. I feel great, both mentally and physically.
The push-up challenge has helped me build upper body strength to complete not one but almost four pull-ups. Last December, I was shocked and suprised to complete ONE pull-up.
I was going to go to mid May. I am going to cut my loss and end this challenge at the end of April. Fifteen pounds is nothing to sneeze at. This weight loss has made a difference. My clothes fit better and I no longer look pregnant.
New goal. I am going to go for conservative goal. Two months, twelve pounds. Starting May first. That’s 1.5 pounds a week. The plan is to eat cleaner. Since Lent, I have really cut back on my fast food adventures. Last week, we went out for lunch after the math meet and I ordered a medium sized meal. My wife wanted to take me to the hospital for a mental evaluation because of that. Just stop eating there people say. It’s a psychological thing. I’m starting to reach why I go there. I’m not ready to share that yet. When I do, I don’t think people will believe it. No, I was not touched by the clown.
MaM challenged me to go two weeks without sugary drinks. I’ll take that bet
