Wow, about 1/3 of the way through my personal challenge and feeling good about things. I found this article quite encouraging and was interested in some of the outside links posted in it. However, they will have to wait until I get done with all 7 stages of New Rules of Lifting for Women. I’m currently in stage 3 and should finish it up next Wednesday. I’ve been meeting my goals lately which is good. The scale isn’t showing any results yet but I have faith that soon the weight will just be melting off. That said how many have heard of a “fat shift”. I’ve only ever heard of this term on the t-tapp site but I bring it up for a reason. I feel like despite everything I’m doing my gut is getting bigger. So I’m wondering if this is a possible “fat shift” or is it possible I’m doing something wrong?
On another note, I have given up my soda. Yesterday I almost failed on that mission and had one but I resisted (with God’s help) and didn’t have one. Then today I saw this tip on F-Factor about how much you can gain in a year from drinking soda. I certainly wasn’t helping myself by drinking it. I was hoping the weight would come off a little faster since I have stopped drinking it but that doesn’t seem to be happening. Oh well, I’ll just keep working hard and tracking my food.
Here’s to hopefully another successful week.
