Pain and Deprivation
As mentioned in some earlier posts here and here, the weight loss journey in our household continues. My wife, following a medically supervised program, and myself, following a pain and deprivation program. My wife has lost 25 pounds to date. And I have lost 19 pounds. My wife is within 15 pounds of her target. I have a bit more to go.
My daily intake is hovering around 1,400 calories or so. That is the deprivation part of my program. When I factor in a typical spin on the bike, which burns about 800 calories, my net intake is 600 calories or so.
However, I feel great. I am no longer in pain from the daily rides and I do not have a sense of being deprived.
Is there a chance that you’ve gained some weight in muscle mass? Especially thigh muscles? Either way, sounds like you’re both doing excellent 🙂 Keep up the good work!
I have likely built up some muscle through the exercise routine. Should be at target weight within the next six weeks or so.
Keep it up, bro! I recently substantially increased my fitness level as well. Makes such a huge difference in energy level.
