Today is my first day. Bed time is near and I just drank my last shake and am ready to get on the TreadClimber to grind off a few more calories and get my head ready for bed and work tomorrow. My job is very sedentary and I am trying to think of sustainable ways to burn more daily calories. I was anticipating being hungry with nothing but shakes all day but I feel pretty satisfied. I am 60 years young and have put on a lot of weight in the last 2 years, new job, new house and new life.
I’m 5’10’, 258lbs and have been a gym rat and exerciser for most of my adult life although the intensity of my workouts have ebbed and flowed with my job (advertising creative director in the pharmaceutical business). It is a fact that I am 60 years old but my self perception keeps wondering who the hell that old guy in the mirror is. I hate… absolutely hate the way I look. So this diet is to at least improve who is looking back at me from the mirror. 30+% body fat will become the low teens, when I finish this makeover.
Pics will be posted this week and I will keep up to date with my progress. I put a weeks worth powder in plastic bags my son said it looked like a scene from American Gangster without the naked ladies. It is great reading about all those successes out there I hope to add my diet log to them.
