(See my intro post to find out why I’m taking the steak and eggs diet challenge.)
I’m actually writing this on Saturday. Pictures were taken on Saturday as well, since I’ll be too busy on Sunday to put this post together. It’s still getting published on Sunday though – gotta keep to the schedule and all.
So this week I was actually really good. For once. No cheats whatsoever. I feel like I’ve started to turn the corner on this damned diet.
Granted, tomorrow will be another carb-fest. Which means that next week’s update is likely to show photos of me after a week that includes 2 high carb/junk days.
I’ve got the momentum going now so I’m not worried. This week I hit 32 ¼ inches. That’s a ¼ inch drop from last week. I’m sure a good part of that drop is my lack of water retention from my usual Saturday binge. But I’ll take it.
I can definitely tell that my waist is shrinking, though it’s hard to see in the photos. And I’m definitely getting more “cut” (in quotes because I’m actually far from cut).
As I said in my intro post, I usually start to get a hint of abs when my waist hits 32 inches. And sure enough, I’m starting to get just a hint of them. Again, it’s hard to see from the washout lighting on my white-ass hairy belly, but trust me – they’re just starting to appear.
So I added a picture with flexed abs, just for contrast from the usual relaxed belly pictures I always take. It helps to point out the difference flexing your abs can make as you lean up. If I’d taken a picture like this when I first started the diet, there would have hardly been any difference. Now that I think about it, I wish I had.
So this week’s was a short and rather plain update. I’m sure next week’s will be more diabolical. Hopefully I’ll only have 2 more weeks to go before I hit 32 inches even. Then I can switch to a more sustainable eating pattern as I continue to lean up.
Now on to the pics!
