My weight loss MORE THAN DOUBLED this week on "30-In-30"
After seeing modest weight loss during the first month of my "30-In-30" Low-Carb Weight Loss Challenge which began on August 1, 2006, I tried something a little different from what I was doing to see if it would result in greater and faster weight loss. The results were nothing short of a miracle--6 1/2 POUNDS LOST IN ONE WEEK! WOWsers!
When I was losing weight on the Atkins diet back in 2004 starting off at 410 pounds, I regularly had weeks when I lost 6-10 pounds early on. But I had a lot to lose and it stood to reason that would happen. But this weight loss over the last week is much more significant because I've been low-carbing for nearly three years and haven't seen a jump like this happen at all. It's as if I released something inside of me that had been dying to get out and now it is free.
Just in case you are wondering, it's not counting calories (UGH!) or eating smaller portions, less fat or any of that other complete and utter nonsense that people try to tell you is the "secret" to losing weight.
In fact, do you wanna know what my average daily caloric intake was this past week? Would you believe it was 2350 a day?! My fat intake was 69 percent, protein was at 28 percent , and carbs at just 3 percent. How can this be with such a large weight loss in one week? I'm sure this will baffle all those low-fat/low-calorie/portion-control advocates out there for a very long time.
But I'm not done with this little experiment which I still can't tell you about yet. I'm going to keep going with it to see if the result I got this week will continue. If they do on my way down to 210 pounds, then you will hear about it in due time. Patience, my friends, patience.
The good thing is the scale is moving rapidly again and I'm enjoying the ride. Won't you join me on this challenge? Come visit the "30-In-30" blog!
