I’ve gotten a lot of compliments over the last 2 months. Today to my recollection is the first time I heard “Who is that guy?”. I was delivering to my friend’s workplace when I heard it. The usual routine is to go in and see what they want and bring the order in. On the way back in with their order my friend tells me one of his co-workers asked him “who was that guy?” He was surprised she asked but said “it was our potato guy”. One thing led to another and he asked if I’d mind telling her what I did to lose all the weight. I of course said sure.
Whenever I tell people what I am doing I always try to keep it simple and honest. I told her I was eating right and exercising and I count my calories. I could tell she didn’t like the calorie counting in her eyes and she said the exercise would be tough. I told her just start walking to begin. When she asked if I had kids I told her no but take your kids walking too. She reminded me of myself the last couple years in that she’d like to lose weight but still finding reasons why she can’t. Like me it won’t happen till she’s ready so I know not to press any further. Just give them the main info and wait for them to ask for more details when they’re ready.
Ok so onto this week’s weight loss. I was surprised to be down at all this morning. I’ve been high on the carbs this past week as well as over doing the salt intake most days. So my guess is that my race yesterday helped more than I thought or I need to replace my scale’s battery. Anyways for now I’ll take it in the positive till I have proof otherwise.
Now that my triathlon is over I’m going to try going back to my old routine of 40-50% carbs which worked so well in the past. The last 3 weeks I’ve been 50-65% which isn’t good for me long-term. Leading up to races yes but otherwise no.
