I'm tipping the scales at an all-time record of 173 lbs right now.
Only 6 months ago I was at my personal low of 161 and annoying family members were saying I looked *emaciated*.
I myself am shocked at this sudden reversal. My busy schedule has limited my short bursts (20 minutes of the elliptical) of aerobic exercise AND it has induced a lot of *eating out* for lunch and dinner (burritos and pizza)...
But still I am somewhat surprised and frustrated by the weight gain. I still do the kettlebells and 30 grams of early morning protein from The 4-Hour Body.
Added muscle? Maybe - but certainly not all of the bulge.
So right now I'm finishing up Day 2 of a serious diet (if I make it through bedtime!).
No pizza. No burritos. No ice cream. No candy. No soda. No bread. No pasta. And tons of fruits and vegetables.
My goal is to purge for 10 straight days.
I pretty much suck at avoiding sweets so these experiments never last long.
But this time I'm more motivated - not only by the *all-time* number, but also from reading about Tony Robbins and his ninja mental tricks. I'm really interested to see if I can pull this, a major behavioral change, off.
I'll weigh in again the morning of July 12th, shaved, naked, and post-defecation.
