Thanks for the wishes! and the support! XD. Only 1/2 pound off my goal given the holiday week and all is OK by me. The test will be if I'll meet 2lbs this week or not. So far a bad start, I didn't workout yesterday...I was dealing with some pretty ignorant mischievous local kids...ugh.
I actually agree with most of your points and assessment. I used to have that attitude, but it was easy to maintain the first time I lost weight and while I was in shape. Since I gained 70 lbs, I'm totally fixated on getting that scale to read 190 lbs!
I do agree that ancient man was probably much healthier that we are now. I don't think our organs were designed to be crunched up in a chair all day. In fact, a colleague and I have talked about converting our desks to standing desks. He actually already did, I am in the process of converting mine.
We eat garbage all day long. There is no need to go back to ancient man, you can find examples in current third world countries or even the US 100 years ago. We flipped the scale on how we eat and live our daily lives. The micro nutrient soldiers that work to fuel and repair are bodies are non-existent. Vegetables and other micro nutrients need to be at least 70% of our diet.
Perhaps today I'll start jogging outside :)
Fail indeed =(
155 lbs! Yikes, you think if I every hit that weight i'll actually be invisible, hehe
The goal is 190 lbs :)
45 lbs to go.
