Since I had my annual check up and physical, I been on a mission to go hard and make new changes. The main reason is because I realized I was no longer 240lbs or less and my doctor told me to lose 13lbs.
Sure, I had my clothes on but my attire for that day was definitely less than 15 or more pounds. Like many Americans, I’m considered “obese” for my height. At first my goal was between 225-235, but honestly today, I’m thinking of dropping it to 215. I think that would be a great weight for me especially with all the working out I’ve been doing. I even took time to Google what 215 looks like on a. 6’2″ frame and let’s just say not even Google could give me the dark side of that weight class.
How will I get there? Rededication and a new discipline challenge to start. I want to drop that 13lbs before the month of September ends and lord willing be at my goal on New Year’s Eve. So I decided that for the month of September I will challenge myself to do no alcohol, bread or white potatoes!
Alcohol is honestly super easy! I just want to throw that in there just in case I have that occasional “drink or two”. Absolutely no worries on this part.
Bread and Potatoes are pretty much staples in my current eating habits. Chips and sandwiches see me probably 3 times a week. It’s probably why I can’t melt this fat pouch completely. I’m so tired of seeing this meat pouch hanging! So I got to make this happen.
My plan is to replace that bread or potato with a green vegetable. It’s great for me cause it’s not too many green veggies I don’t like. I believe this challenge will stop my “progress plateau” and take my fitness journey to the next level. I’m officially giving myself 4 months to lose 40lbs! I believe that’s more than attainable if I put in the work! This plus remaining to keep dairy and fast food out of my diet are bound to help me get to where I want to be.
So here goes everything! New challenges for new results. Time to reach a new personal milestone!
