Ok.  So here I go again.  This time, it’s personal!
Anyway, I was doing my weekly weigh in at the gym at work and the manager there says maybe I should try the Fat Smash Diet.  She says a number of the guys there at the gym have been trying it and they’ve all reported losing 10 pounds in the first couple of weeks.
Yesterday, I went out and got the book and read it.  Today I finished it.  (It’s a very quick read – lots of dead space and 75 recipes.  I’m jazzed so I got Hil to go out an buy the first weeks worth of food for me to try it.
The diet seems reasonable – 4 meals and 3 snacks each day.  The hard part is the size of each is minuscule.  But I’ll try it for the required 3 weeks and see how it goes.  If I can manage to lose the 12 pounds (promised), then maybe I’ll stick it out and go for a 2nd 3 week rotation.  At least the recipes sound more interesting than the other diets Hil and I have been trying for the last couple of years.  My starting weight is 332…  So, I’ve got a lllooonnnggg way to go to reach my ideal weight 185 pounds.  I’ll have to lose half of me!!  To tell the truth, I’ll be happy if I can get down to 250 – that would be 80 pounds lost.  If I could do that in one year, that would be about 1.5 pounds per week – which logically sounds do-able.  (Isn’t it funny how what sounds “doable” is really a tremendous achievement – if I can do it!)
Of course, that’s putting the horse before the cart (as usual)…  The first thing is seeing how much I can drop this first 3 weeks.
Yesterday, Hil and I went for a 45 min walk – I estimate a little over 2 miles.  Today, I went for a hour jog.  Slow, but I estimate 3.5 miles.
That’s it for now.  I’ll try to update this more regularly as the program in only for 3 wks.
To anyone reading this, keep me in your good thoughts (or prayers).
