It’s not as easy to lose weight as I had hoped for. My goal was (and still is) to be able to see my knees again, without having to bend to much forward or use a mirror. It’s not too much to ask for and shouldn’t really be that big of a challenge either – should it?
Well, the last 10 days have been tough on my male ego and my corpus extremus. Firstly, I had to reduce my daily meat intake to a more moderate level. It’s not like was eating a cow a day, but I do like my meat. The male dent happens when I forced myself to eat nothing but soup every day for lunch. My male colleagues stared at me in amazement when I slurped into a bowl of carrot or broccoli soup. Initially, the soups were difficult to swallow and I pretended to chew something when people were looking – only fooling myself and my body!
After 4 days of prison chow, I had only lost 3lbs. I celebrated by eating a bowl of chips! I was bloody depressed. I needed to lose more, and faster. Back to the Wii Trainer.
My biggest problem was that I had to go away on a business trip to Prague, with everything paid for. That meant, excellent breakfast buffet, lovely lunches and amazing dinners – not to mention the wine and beer I had to consume in the name of networking.
I ate, drank and smothered the mini bar for a full 4 days. Amazingly enough, I had still lost 2lbs, despite this orgie of excessive binge eating.
Seriously, I have to do better in the next 10 days, otherwise this daddy ain’t getting any fitter. My knees will be forever lost. Oh, wait. I can always use photo-shop!
Wish me luck!
