Day 36 - The Big 4-0

It's been a little bit since I checked in last, but I hit another mark today, so I figured it was as good a time as any for an update. I weighed in at 258.8 lb, which puts me down 40.2 lb from the start. Things have been going pretty well since the break, and I'm moving right along. I figured out that I have 4 weeks of fasting left, which will end on September 10. The day or two after the fast, I'll be eating raw foods (fruits and veggies). I'll be figuring out the eating plan I want to go with in the meanwhile. I'm leaning toward something heavily based in produce and reduced carbs and meat. I haven't figured out actual proportions yet, but that's the general sense of what I think will be best for my overall health.


The working out has also been going well. I am dealing with a shoulder injury right now. I'm nervous I might have a torn trapezius. But without health insurance it wouldn't matter if I knew anyway, as surgery is the only option in that case. My current activities include AquaFit and racquetball (my left shoulder is the injured one and is not used). I'm really liking the AquaFit class, and there are plenty offered during the week. If you haven't taken one, I recommend it. You get a good workout without overheating or inflicting strain on your joints.

Here is my picture from this morning. I posted another version of it in the Photo Timeline. I haven't looked at that page in a while, and I was surprised to see the difference from the start. What a difference a month makes!
