Okay, the whole reason I set out on this journey was to stay within standards. Today a new message came out restating the same thing.
Only after I reviewed more closely did I realize I had been mis-reading the information. What did it mean? For some reason I mis-read 70” thinking it meant 6 feet. Only after this second message did I look at it in detail to realize my mistake.
There was a 10 pound difference between 5’10” and 6”. I was at the top end of my allowable weight with 201 lbs, which is where I started. Well, that means that although my heart was in the right place and my principles and dieting were correct (ensuring I met the allowable range and beat it by 5 pounds) I’ve actually EXCEEDED my goal by 6 pounds. WAHOO!
What’s next? Find the plateau. Find the calorie intake that I can tolerate and maintain a steady weight around my current 189/190 range or slightly lower. Continue the work outs to increase body tone. There is always the idea of making it to “that guy” status. Yah, okay, it’s a dream alright!
