Another Random Rambling Weight Loss Update Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle Still Great
My fat burning journey started about a year and half ago. It has been an interesting journey. I must say. If you read some of my posts you will see that I started off just starving myself in the beginning. Anyone who has dieted knows that only works for so long.
If you are interested, you can find more about the start of my journey at this post
So eighteen months in and I’ve lost a total of 120 pounds. I had hoped to be at my goal by now but that’s the way it goes sometimes. I am proud of my accomplishments thus far for sure.
Something strange has been happening lately. The last few weeks have consisted of mainly cheat days. I guess I’ll just call them cheat weeks. The funny thing about these cheat weeks is that I only gained three pounds.
I have been eating donuts almost daily. Pizza a couple times a week. I’m not sure what’s even going on with that. I’m not trying to gain weight. I just needed some comfort food lately. I’m pleased about the limited gain, but I’m also a bit surprised. I’m guessing that my sluggish metabolism has been revved up in a major way. If I had eaten this way a year ago I imagine I would have gained at least 15 pounds by now.
I’m really hoping this is what my future will look like. I have no plans of eating like this regularly. I just think that vacations and holidays will not be a problem whatsoever in the future.
I should add that I have added walking to my exercise regimen. In addition to my regular routine I now walk at least five miles a minimum of three times a week. I also cram up on the sweets the night before a long walk. This may be a key in combatting my recent comfort food splurge.
This still gives me a great deal of hope for the future. I am hoping that this will help kill the holiday apprehension I have every year. Last year I gained 20 pounds in December. I almost gave up on losing weight after that. I’m so happy that I didn’t.
I’m writing this post today because I will be giving up the comfort foods once again. I’m going to just go with a basic healthy eating plan between now and Christmas. Then I will indulge at the holidays as much as I like. If at the end of the year I am within five pounds of my current weight I will mark this little experiment as a success.
When the big resolution day rolls around, you know the day every year that you swear you will lose the weight, I will jump right back on to BFFM and I will lose more weight. I love those New Year’s resolutions to lose weight in 2012, or whatever the current year is.
I never understood why people wait. If you wait an extra month that is all the more weight you will need to lose. If I wasn’t in need of a break I would shoot for another six to eight pounds lost this month. If you are reading this contemplating losing weight in 2012 don’t wait. Get a head start on everybody else. Start burning the fat today and you could be seeing results by New Years. When everyone else is making there resolutions you can take satisfaction in the fact that you weight loss has already started.
Regular readers know that I can’t say enough good things about Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle. I am eternally thankful to Tom Venuto for creating such an incredible comprehensive fat burning diet and system.
I don’t think I’ve ever stayed on a diet for 18 months before. The funny thing about that, it stopped feeling like a diet last year sometime. The first few weeks that was a different story entirely. Some people consider BFFM a bit hard to follow. Think about it if it was totally easy would it work as well as it does. It comes down to how important getting in shape is to you.
The best part about Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle teaches you how to limit the loss of muscle while burning fat. This is the most efficient way to lose weight in my opinion. I believe this is the reason my metabolism seems to be going strong. That lean mass helps your body burn off more calories throughout the day.

Anyway I’ll wrap my fat burning ramblings up. I can’t believe I am less than 250 pounds. I love it. The closer I get to 220 the more I think that will be my actual weight loss goal. My family is telling me to stop here. I hate when people do that. I lost this weight for me. When I am ready to stop I will. I am far from skinny. I have no plan of becoming skinny. My goal is not even going to be a number from the scale. I will recognize my goal when I see it in the mirror. If you are tracking your fat loss a scale is important but not as important as your belt and the mirror.
Good luck to anyone starting a fat burning diet. Dedication and hard work are necessary, but it can be done. I will say this losing weight is simple, but it is far from easy. Keep that in mind as you plan your goals.
