Month 2 On Carb Nite

Posted by jeresk on August 1, 2012 in It's Everybody's Fault I'm Fat |

Ok!  So still going strong – I had a trip to Washington DC (hence the gap in dates from the last month when you check the weight chart at the bottom…).

Aside from having 2 carb nites in a row when I went to a couple of banquets where I didn’t get the option of choosing what to eat – I did well on vacation!  I know, I could have been better, but I’m not going to kick myself for 2 carb nites, when I was essentially living “carb life” prior to this diet.  I don’t remember a time when I went on vacation and came back lighter!!!!

Second Month

Now…  When I look at this, I don’t see a ton of difference, but my family seems to be noticing!  I have started having friends say things like, “Oh wow!  What diet are you doing?”  I started working out – I found an app called “7 Weeks To Ripped.”  Ok, ok, you can stop laughing now!  Seriously!  Shut up!  I know I will not be “ripped” in 7 weeks.  In fact, the app requires you to be able to do a few pull ups, which I can’t do.  So I have a “Perfect Pull-Up” setup that I installed, which can swing down so you can do the Australian Pull Up – which is supposed to help build up to doing a full pull up.

What I really liked about the app was there is no equipment or machines to concentrate on.  It’s all based on body weight – essentially push-ups, sit-ups, squats, etc.  I’m no good coming up with my own plan, I need something that can grow with me.  It has a 3 week “prep” plan for those who can’t meet the standards to be able to start the 7 week program.  But my question is, what happens after 3 weeks?  I’m 300 lbs, and haven’t done a pull-up since I was in 6th grade.  So do I start back at the first?  It starts easier, so getting to week 3 and then going back to do something easier doesn’t sound like the best plan.

They have a site with a chatboard so I posted and we’ll see what people suggest…

Here is my weight chart for this last month (minus my week in Washington D.C.):

07/06/2012299.0

07/08/2012298.0
07/09/2012307.2

(After Carb Nite)

07/11/2012301.8
07/12/2012299.6
07/13/2012298.6
07/14/2012300.0
07/15/2012303.4

07/22/2012302.6
07/23/2012302.6
07/24/2012300.8
07/25/3012297.4
07/26/2012302.4

(After Carb Nite)

07/27/2012299.4
07/28/2012296.8
07/29/2012296.2
07/30/2012295.4
07/31/2012293.6

 

So…  After all is said and done, I am down 8.2 lbs this month, for a total of 26.6 lbs! What I can’t seem to find is what people are normally averaging.

John Kiefer keeps saying the mirror lies and the scale lies, and to focus more on how clothes fit and how you feel.  I feel great, the clothes are a bit more loose, but I think I’m seeing some frustration because I’m on my way down, and then have to do a carb nite which shoots my weight back up.  It’s like one step forward, 6 lbs back…  But at the end of each week I’m generally lower than I was at the start of the week, so I know it’s working!  I just wish I could find some averages of what to expect…
