End First Phase AFC Rapid Fat-Loss Diet = Sharon’s Fat Reduction Diet

There are no statistics for the last week of the FAT REDUCTION PHASE of AFC RAPID FAT-LOSS DIET, that wouldn’t be essentially the same as the first four weeks.

TOTAL FAT-LOSS = 10.5 LBS.

FAT-LOSS GOAL – DAY 33

8/7/2018  TUESDAY Day 33

 

FAT-LOSS GOAL

Had I set a specific number of pounds I wanted or expected to lose, it wouldn’t have been an experiment as I indicated in my first post regarding the AFC RAPID FAT-LOSS DIET.

Perhaps I should have defined rapid. Maybe I did. I better go back and check.

It appears that my five week diet was more like a maintenance diet than a reducing one.

I basically ate what I normally eat only less, but not a lot less, obviously not less enough to lose a significant amount of fat.

I cut out margarine, except sometimes to cook with, years ago. Steve likes margarine, so I put it into recipes occasionally.

I love mayonnaise. That’s my condiment of choice on sandwiches, or just by the spoonful when I’m craving fat. The jar is still in the refrigerator after nearly five weeks, which says something.

HOW I'M DOING

11 DAYS AND COUNTING

That half pound attached to the 155.5 lb. reading on the scale this past Friday bothered me, so I weighed myself this morning (Monday) at 4:14 AM, even though my rule was to weigh-in only once a week on Fridays.

Obviously I woke up feeling a little lighter, otherwise I wouldn’t have done it.

So, yes. That half pound is history.

Now, instead of losing a total of 7 lbs. in a little over three weeks, the new total is 7.5 lbs. lost.

Oops, now that new half pound marker bothers me. I don’t like to do anything halfway.

I’m going to knock that half pound off the planet.

Slow doesn’t always win the race. Slow might not even complete the race if the turtle slows to a snail’s pace and gets scooped up for supper along the way.

I’m at the head of the stretch, there’s no more time for maneuvering. Put the pedal to the metal.

If my brain hasn’t gotten the message that I can eat responsibly without it having to put me in emergency mode to slow my metabollism, because it thinks I’m starving, then my brain needs to be taught who’s in charge here. I’m a contributing factor to how I exercise my freedom to use my instincts as I choose.

Counting today (30 July) I have 11 days till the final weigh-in.

TIPS & TOOLS

Feel Your Weight

I want to feel my weight. Being numb to it isn’t helping to reduce it. When factoring in the time and effort it takes to wake up to it and stay awake, it isn’t worth whatever short-term benefit the ‘numb to it’ provided.

So each day for a while, in my mind, I will weigh less than the day before. In my mind, not on the scale. Use the mirrors, suck in the gut and lock in the concept of not feeling any worse tomorrow than you feel today, because your weight will not increase in your mind. You will make sure that it doesn’t by what and how much and how often you eat.

Do it for about a week – instead of watching your weight on the scale, feel your weight. All of it. Feel that which you are, knowing that each day will not be any worse – weight-wise – than the day before.

How does it feel, using all your senses – the ones science has yet to identify? It’s not helping you that the people and institutions controlling the science are so resistant and slow. You know you have more senses than the government says you have. Screw ’em. They may control the science, but they don’t control your senses – though they try mighty hard. You control how you feel and what you feel.

Feel your weight in absence of shame. There is no shame in waking up.

GOTTA HAVE RULES

WEIGH SELF FULLY CLOTHED

THE RULES

New rule: Weigh myself fully clothed with shoes on after shower and breakfast.

At the doctor office I don’t get weighed naked right out of bed, and they don’t take my word on how much I really weighed in the morning – a mistake all medical professionals make.

Still, I refuse to fear the scales with clothes and shoes on. It is what it is. Fully clothed will be my new baseline and the weight from which I judge all future weights.

There was too much prep work to weigh myself. I’m groggy in the morning. Oh, I forgot to weigh myself. Now I have to remove all the clothes I just put on. Or take off my shoes, after I just tied them up. Oh, I already drank that coffee, or juice or whatever, when I think to weigh myself. Wonder how much it weighs?

I’m not going for the quarter or half pound difference any more. Those two-pound and three-pound weight gains and losses are too fickle for me.

I’m out of the 160’s. Then out of the 150’s. And on from there.

When I can feel the weight loss or gain I’ll believe the scale.

How to Track Weight-Loss Progress Without a Scale 

Unfortunately, the metric we’ve been relying on for decades — numbers on a scale — isn’t always indicative of the progress you’re making in your weight-loss journey. In fact, some really powerful transformations that appear to be slim downs involve very few pounds lost — some even have gained weight!

Here are some little victories to keep an eye out for — track this progress just as much if not more so than you’re tracking your shed pounds…
