29/8/12 Wednesday. Into the last week of the 2 month weight loss effort taking the diet supplement and I am recovering from a debilitating bout of back pain that often coincides with weight gain. As usual there has been no exercise in this period which began on Friday, literally bed ridden on Saturday and Sunday. Up and out of bed moving gingerly by Monday afternoon, taking care not to jar of strain the injured area.
Rest is always a good healing agent and by Tuesday the injury had receded into a relatively minor disability. Managed to book a Bowen Therapy treatment on the same day and that was to speed up the healing and correct the cause of the injury flare up. Would have forgone this for a few days in normal circumstances yet with the first matchplay round of the club golf championships on Sunday it is vital to improve as soon as possible.
The crunch of all is has my weight blown out in this injury recovery period? In this case no, in fact the opposite; down to 101.2kgfrom Saturday’s 102.3kg
Visually my body has obviously lost a few of the rolls and bulges from the initial 109kg when I began the weight loss attempt taking the diet supplements.
With only two days of supplement capsules left I am very happy with the result since beginning in July. To have lost, at worst 7kg in eight weeks, up to 8kg possible in the last few days is a definite success.
Without doubt my sceptical opinion has been changed to one that says this works. During this weight loss period there have been times when there has been gains between some weekly weigh ins. The point is that this is not an instant quick fix and what you eat and moderate exercise has to be considered. The fact is that the loss of 7 kilograms in eight weeks is the minimum result I have achieved. You must follow some simple rules and not eat fast foods, biscuits, cakes, cream pastries, chocolate bars and other confectionery from the sweets and lollies section in shops.
I will do a final weigh in on Saturday morning. Then continue this written record for a couple of weeks to see if the weight comes back now that the supplements are not part of my dietary routine.
Thankyou for your time and attention, Geoff
