40 pounds since January 1st. When I say it out loud that sounds really good. I am really excited about getting close to being in the 250s again. It has been at least 10 years since I have weighed that little (with the exception of a few brief weeks last year due to health reasons).
I was getting concerned as I had stalled for a over a week after going on vacation. After reading posts at T-nation about others who had stalled, I took some advice and took a carb-break for one whole Saturday. I didn’t go completely crazy, but I did eat all the carbs I wanted to, including dessert! I worked out hard the following morning and noticed that I had a very high level of energy and endurance, but even more than that I noticed a HUGE pump. From what I gather, this has to do with replenishing my glycogen stores through the carb day. I may experiment with including one carb-meal a week in my diet for a while to see how things progress.
