I guess my metabolism still does work. Perhaps it helps if I stop eating over 3000 calories per meal. Instead, I have been eating apples, rice, salads, and chewing gum (I don't swallow them anymore). Although I haven't chewed any gum this weekend...I'll need to start chewing again when I go back to work. I'm actually feeling pretty good right now, but today I did have some major cravings for all those unhealthy foods sitting in my house.
You know the kind...chips, cereal (I eat it in mass quantities if I start), and orange juice. I resisted the urge, and went to bed. Mainly because I had been studying for the CPA exam. I got a 25% on my first practice test. I only have 3 weeks to go before my second exam. Quite depressing, but I must continue on with the drudgery.
I do lift weights (15 pounds) each day, and do side straddle hops for my exercise when I am at home. I have a punching bag that I like to beat up on. The weather has turned cold here in Ohio, so I haven't been outside much all week. I'll keep everyone posted on my progress. Thanks for supporting me in this difficult lifestyle change.
Oh and I thought my scale was broken, but I was wrong. My wife fixed it!
