This past week went better than I expected. I booked my weight loss on Thursday, the day of my annual physical. After that, I relaxed a little. I watched my intake slightly in preparation for the big party on Saturday, but nothing too extreme. At the party, I had some beer and tacos — really tasty stuff. I even had a donut just to round things out.
But even after all that partying, I only regressed a little bit by this morning. So here I am, at exactly found pounds down, four weeks into the program.
This next week will prove to be a bit of a test. I will see if this regimen actually works with very little exercise for over a month. (The conventional theory is that my metabolism will catch up to my reduced caloric intake and fatten me up again. More on that in a future post.)
But since I am on pace today, I can afford to hold off on the weight drop for a couple of days. I have a prime Wagyu ribeye waiting for me in the refrigerator for tonight. Tomorrow, I am planning to have a belated birthday dinner at my favorite Italian restaurant.
We'll see what the damage is on Wednesday morning, then I'll have to buckle down until the weekend is over.
