    Well, 25.2 to be exact. I was weighed at Weight Watchers this morning. They actually asked me if I have been eating! I eat plenty but I have only been using 35 points; not the 44 points the recommend. I do give myself the activity points, though, which a lot of people don't do. My goal this week is to do 44 points everyday.

    The second picture on my profile is me this morning. I am squinting but I think you can get the idea. Even I, my harshest critic, can't help but notice the difference.

    Good.

    Understand that glycogen deloading lost your first 10 pounds, but, the additional weight is probably coming off from your activity.

    Make sure you don't get caught in the feast / famine; starve / binge; failing to fuel the furnace syndrome of many fat people that fail in repeat attempts at diet.

    YOU MUST EAT to keep your metabolism up. The saying goes: breakfast like a king, dinner like a prince, supper like a pauper. You have to step away from all the bad behavior you've had in the past and get an approach to food as a function, rather than a drug.

    Also, you need resistance training. ONLY resistance training will INCREASE your lean muscle mass, strengthen your bones, conditions your limb attachments, and up your metabolic rate, AS YOU GROW OLDER. I.e. weights, and bodyweight resistance exercise are the ONLY exercises that raise your metabolic rate as you grow older.

    You MUST include resistance training in any serious risk management program.

    Depending on what research you read, every pound of lean muscle mass burns 15 calories at rest, just to exist every day.

    More muscle mass means a higher metabolic rate. A higher metabolic rate means you'll burn more calories.

    The additional muscle mass will also help you in nearly every angle of daily life.

    MANY fat people I've met have never felt good, nor known how good it feels to be strong, fit, and virile.

    If you are patient, and you have discipline, you will know how that feels at some point.

    You need to engage in activity you like. That'll make it easier.

    As you lose the lard, develop an improved lifestyle, enhanced behavior patterns, start taking better care of yourself, it will also become easier. Your conditioning will be better; you'll hopefully integrate ex cerise into your life and look forward to it. You'll find yourself doing things, and feeling better than you have better.

    In time, the old you should become unacceptable, and something you'd never consider digressing to again.

    Agel's OHM has been a tremendous appetite supressant. I love the lemon merengue flavored gel. I try to eat 7 times a day too. Approximately 2 lbs of chicken a day and 2 cups of brown rice.
