My path to health: a slight stagnation
I started refocusing my efforts after I peaked to 218 pounds on 2 July. I have lost 8 pounds in 3 months. To be honest, I have not really tried that hard. I have about three weeks until the fitness test. I have to weight 220 as long as they get my height right. In my 19 years of service, they have measured my height from 73-76 inches. To be honest, I am 74.5 to 75.5 inches tall. As long as they do not go down to 73 inches, I should be fine because at 75 inches I am authorized 214 pounds but weight 210 pounds.
Besides this, what else has changed? I have lost 1% body fat and about one inch off my waist. I started exercising again over the weekend after a slight 2-week illness. I am also focusing on 3 meals a day and 1500 calories with a 1-200 calorie snack. This should lead to 2 pounds of weight loss a week.
I will post my progress in about 2-3 weeks.
