I held off on any extra walking until I got these done today.  It'd been six days since my last squatting.

 

Spoiler

We're on day 4, of Week 1, of the Challenge period.   And I've already received my first PM (not from a Level 1) critiquing my L1 Guild Leadering and asking me to change my posting personality. :lol:. That didn't take long.

I feel like this sounds like a confessional.

Confessional?  It is just you re-affirming your awesomeness by showing no fear in telling others that you are succumbing to your mortal elements and then displaying a graph to make sure that they understand the power you are truly dealing with  in the tonnage you have already pushed toward the heavens.

 

  Unless this is the squatting you are talking about having trouble with.

Seems to me people end up becoming GLs because of their personality...

 

There's probably a lot of truth to that.

I walked 7.57 miles today.  The Middle Earth weather turned wet as we continued making our way deeper into the steeps of the Trollshaws.

 

As of this morning, I've lost exactly 8 lbs in the last 28 days (4 weeks), and somewhere between 3/4 to 1 inch off my waist. So averaged 2 lbs per week for the last month.  And averaged a little under, but close to, a 1/4 inch per week.

Great job Hazard.  That is an excellent target rate of loss.  have you noticed any changes like more spring in your step, less knee pain on stairs etc?

Kinda sorta.  Knee pain on stairs hasn't really been an issue for me in a long time.  I've built up enough strength in the musculature which supports the knees that walking up or down a flight of stairs isn't a big enough stressor to cause my knees pain.

 

am starting to feel noticeably lighter.   Which does put a 'Spring in my Step'.

 

My weight has gone down and up and down and up several times over the last few years, within a range of 174 lbs - 207 lbs.  So the experience of getting smaller isn't new to me.  I'm definitely going to feel lighter and more springy as my weight decreases.  

 

I'll also feel less "solid".  Which is historically my big struggle.  I don't like feeling less solid.  I was skinny as a kid, and have "former skinny guy syndrome".  Feeling less solid makes me feel like the world can shove me around.  My plan has been to do slow bulking with periodic short cuts, once my waist gets small.   But every time I've cut my waist down, I've ended up adding the weight back on too fast because of feeling too skinny.  And while I get a bit of muscle growth during fast weight gain, I also gain waaaaay too much fat back.

 

What I planned to do years ago, and still plan to do now, is get my waist small again and then slowly, progressively, grow muscle tissue while keeping my waist trim.  Ultimately, my longterm big Main Quest aesthetically is to get as muscularly big as I think is reasonable for my lifestyle, while keeping a relatively small waist (under 32" for sure; possibly closer to 30").

 

After I've gotten my waist small, and then built up the muscle tissue, I estimate I'll be around 190-195 lbs.   Which is just a few pounds less than I'm at now.  But with the strength that comes from growing another 40 lbs of muscle, I'm guessing I'll have plenty of spring in my step even weighing in the low 190s. :)

Now you can use that calculus book as an umbrella! So many uses. Lol

 

Fantastic job losing that 1 inch off your waist!

Wow my battery's drained.  I just spent several hours drafting a reply to a PM.  I know I passingly joked about it not taking long before I received one, but this is how serious I actually take it when people bring concerns to me, especially if the concerns center around a critique of me.  Heck, I can spend 30 minutes just fussing over word-choice when drafting a two sentence reply to someone's forum post.  Imagine how much more effort I spend drafting a virtual essay in a PM!  There's a reason I never actually became a novelist, even though I used to think I might be good at it:  I'd be like George R.R. Martin -- fussing so much over every little detail that the book series would never get finished! :lol: 

 

Hopefully getting more walking in will bring my energy back up.  And maybe a Pepsi. :P
