It's going better than I'd hoped.
Weight: 233, loss of 12 pounds.
Walking: average 5.5 miles a day, no missed days.
Notes: I actually started the intermittent fasting in mid-April, just to see if I could handle it. (I think I missed a day). I solidified my plan on May 1. So the weight loss is really over a 6 weeks period. Still, 2 pounds a week is better than I hoped. Pants are getting loose, belt is tightened down a notch. The weight loss is slowing down now, but I'm shooting for 227 by the end of June.
Walking: I fogot how much I love this. It was no trouble getting back in the habit and I'm motoring easily up hills that would have beat me up two months ago. My dog thinks I'm a hero.
I incorporate hill work and short Tabata like sprints. Will add more as I go on.
Because I always do better if I have an event to look forward to, I'm going to be doing a 22 mile one day hike at the end of August. 4,000 feet of elevation gain.
So much winning. Congrats!
Strength: Pretty poor adherence. I've only managed once a week for the round of bodyweight exercises I devised. It only takes eight minutes, and I was hoping to get up to two full rounds. I think with the diet plan working and the walking going well, I will try to keep on schedule with strength. 3x a week at least. If I don't manage it, I'm going to have to try something else.
You have made a lot of changes. If we posit that willpower is limited...
To put it another way: maybe you have no more fucks to give right now. IMO, lock in your walking & eating plan for 6-12 months, then chase other goals.
