in early October of last year I went to put on a pair of my winter shorts (I live in California) and they laughed at me so a switch went off in my mind and I decided to loose the "quarantine weigh
" (pronounced: "excuse for overeating for six months"
I share this post and this graph with you to show you that progress, be it in weight loss or performance training, or finance investments, whatever, is not linear (fancy word for a straight line) it is made of a bunch of ups and downs
I started at above 200 pounds that's what set off the alarms, I don't like that zone it's the no fly zone! and as I type this I am in the high 160s so about 6 pounds passed my goal weight and still loosing and I am eating more and more (don't hate me it's just how it works) I won't go all soap box on you but feel free to ask any questions you likes
pay particular attention to the bunch of spikes, each one of those was a day when I gained up to 4 pounds in one day
, sometimes in only one meal, but the voice in my head said "that was delicious"
no just kidding not that voice the other one that said "keep grinding"
our bodies are complex, but be consistent and over time results will come
