Well, I've lost another pound! This morning I weighed 184, down from 185. I weigh myself the same time every morning to keep myself in check, and it feels good to no longer see 215 pounds on the scale. I had a sugar free Instant Breakfast for breakfast, another for brunch, then for lunch ate a yummy bacon cheeseburger with fries and a king size chocolate malt at the Health Camp here in Waco!! But, now I will just have another Instant Breakfast for dinner and it will knock out the hunger like it always does. I don't kill myself with working out, and actually HATE jogging for extended distances, though I used to be a pretty good long distance runner in High School. Instead, I speed walk and then sprint for about 200 yards, speed walk and then sprint again. I repeat this pattern for about a mile and a half around the neighborhood. I actually think I get a better workout this way instead of continually jogging. It seems to get my heart rate up more and work my muscles WAY more than doing the jogging thing alone. Comments welcome!
Unfortunately, playing the piano doesn't burn many calories or get your heart rate above 120, so I had to figure out something to lose some weight. In October of 2011 I weighed 215 pounds, the heaviest of my life. I tried low carb diets, exercise, and some other things but nothing worked for me. In the picture above which I took today, I weigh 185 pounds and am still losing. Here's how I did it, and how I will keep doing it until I've lost a total of 45 pounds and tip the scales at a healthy 170.
For breakfast at 6 AM: One Sugar Free Carnation Instant Breakfast. It works because it takes away my hunger, plain and simple. For lunch I eat whatever I want but don't go too nuts on the calories. For dinner at 6 I'll have another Instant Breakfast. If I'm hungry before bed I'll have yet another Instant Breakfast. I also moderately exercise with a little bit of weight training. Who turned me on to this? My dad who is slim and trim, and has done the 'Instant Breakfast' diet for the 38 years that I've know him. Comments welcome, guys! Pin It
