Day 29 – The Last Shot

November 6, 2013 | Filed Under Uncategorized 

Today I got my final injection as a part of the weight loss program. I clocked in at 187.2 lb, which means I am down a total of 26.8 lb since I started 29 days ago.

The last few pounds have been a lot tougher, that’s for sure. My healthy weight is 190-200 lb, although the doctor did make an allowance for me to go to 185 lb based on a pinch test.

The way I see it, I have two days to get down to 185 before I start maintenance on Saturday.

As a part of the four-week program, I get four weeks of free maintenance, which is nice. Maintenance is only one, half-shot a week. It also makes a few concessions about the amount and types of food I can eat. Unlimited vegetables. A few more starchy vegetables like kale. 100g a day more protein. Although my fruit drops down to one a day for the first week or so. (I’m going to miss that afternoon apple.)

So the heat is on. Can I lose 2.2 lb in 2 days? My plan: no salt for 48 hours. Let’s see if that makes a significant difference.
