Fat Boy Challenge Week 4

Life is ups and downs - this week was a DOWN week :)))

Starting weight 13st 7lb
Week 1 weight 13st 6lb
Week 2 weight 13st 5lb
Week 3 weight 13st 6lb ;(

I had to check today's weight 3 times.
I have cut 1 meal of carbs per day (pasta/rice/bread) and replaced it with as much salad as I can eat. I've also moved my carb intake to the post-workout period.
Loads of water and you could say, :), I'm starting to take it a bit more seriously =))

Week 4 weight 13st 2lb =)

Current result is a weekly loss of 4lb and a total loss of 5lb!

Onwards and downwards :)

NOW - The fact that FB1 may be, technically, ahead at the moment is ONLY encouraging me too keep off the twix :) (Nice one Rich!)
Like a race I always like to creep up onto my competition's shoulder just before a finishing surge :))))))
Just watch. I'll be back to 14st by next week :)))

    Great job David! Slow and steady wins this race. Some of the things I've noticed that seem to be important with diet - eating steadily throughout the day. We eat 3 meals and 3 snacks so it's never more than 3 hours between eating. And eating a big breakfast. By filling up early and then stoking the fire throughout the day with the snacks, by the time we get to dinner we aren't as hungry. Keep up the good work!

    Great job.. It's all about the big picture. That late surge you were talking about could literally be a surge if you eat some out of date goods with about a week to go. Lol. Is it cheating!?
