In my previous post, you saw the results of week 8. The end of week 9 has come on the diet and I did not get the workouts in that I wanted. I missed a couple days working out this week due to personal time issues. I did however still workout 5 out of the 7 days. I have been really trying to get into the habit of working out every day. Why? Well the home fitness program I purchased a couple weeks requires you to work out for an hour plus every day. So I am getting that into my daily routine so instead of working out on the treadmill, I can start using P90X. This week was an average week with no changes in the diet or the exercise program. I still take the medication for the appetite suppression and the multi vitamin every day.
I stuck to the diet 100% this week, there were no changes to the diet. The diet was the same as the previous weeks.
The daily calories:
I stuck with the 200, 100, 200, 100, and 200-calorie counts with a daily average of 800 calories and 1000 calories on the days I worked out. I had an extra 200 calories on the days I worked out in order to offset the calories I burned. This was in the form of lean protein, most of the time chicken breasts or something else that is lean protein. I have purchase some whey protein to help with replacing calories after working out.
This was 7 days of the phase 2 diet with veggies w/ non-fat salad dressing. Weight lost for the week 3.0 pounds
- Heart Rate: 96 beats per minute
- Blood pressure: 110/72
- Weight: 263.4
- Body Mass Index: 35.72
The results to date:
So far, I have lost a total of 45.4 pounds in nine weeks on the diet. I am getting close to the 1/2 way mark and it is almost time to take a new photo. I am thinking by week 11 or 12 I should hit the 50 pounds lost mark. That is when I will take another photo to show the progress made so far. I think that you will be able to tell the difference the diet has made so far. This week I was able to wear a pair of jeans that I have not touched in almost 4 years. That was such an amazing feeling. Let us see how I do in week 10.
