Three months ago, I mentioned that I was trying to get to my KFC Weight (200lbs). I’m still trying.
I started the year at 226lbs. Right now, I’m just under 210. They say that the last ten pounds are always the hardest… It sure seems that way.
I’m not obsessed with losing the weight, but I want to get there. I’m thinking of it is as a lifestyle change instead of a weight loss program. So, I’m not in a rush.
What have I been doing? I’ve been going to the gym twice a week since March. I’ve been watching what I’ve been eating and trying to make healthier food choices. But not to the point of depriving myself from the occasional treats or sushi coma. (Mmm. All-you-can-eat sushi…)
I’ve also been playing around with Intermittent Fasting. But I’ll take about that in a separate post.
And I just started running regularly.
Funny thing is that since the beginning of May I’ve been hovering between 215 and 210. Logically, I should have been at my KFC weight already. I dip below 210 and then pop back up towards 215…
Part of me wonders if I’m self-sabotaging? Reaching my KFC weight will be like my final farewell to my friend, Mike. It’s a weird thing because Mike is the inspiration to reach my KFC weight and yet when I reach it, and have some KFC in his memory, I’ll be saying goodbye for the last time.
Mike would tell to stop being an idiot and just get there already.
He’d be right.
So even though I’m not in a rush to get there, I’ll put a tiny bit more focus and push through this plateau. There’s some KFC waiting for me…
