My (Very) Gradual Weight Loss Progress

It’s again time for the weight loss comparison pictures. I should really start calling them fat loss pictures, because my scales haven’t budged – I still weigh about the same as I weighed two months ago. You can check my first set of comparison pictures here.

I think my belly has shrunk a bit and it’s a tad easier to fit into my size 38 (size 8 in US, 10 in UK) goal jeans – never mind the hanging belly!

I think it’s actually a miracle there’s been any progress. After I came back from visiting my relatives, and after I had a bout with migraine, my eating has been off.

I’ve also noticed a recurring pattern: on Thursday nights I start feeling stressed out and tired, and on Fridays I have to push myself to get anything done. On Friday night I often get some candy to take off the edge of stress and to pass the time.

If this is pure stress eating, I need to figure out ways to decrease my stress levels.. Stuffing myself with candy is a poor way to relive stress anyway. Eating candy is never as satisfying as I imagine beforehand and I often wonder why I bother with it. But that wondering always comes afterwards.

A word about my workouts.

This second phase with Female Body Breakthrough has been hard for me. The muscles in my upper back have started tensing up again. There are too many moves that put a heavy load on the muscles of my upper body. I probably going to ditch the prone jack-knife from workout B and the chin up from workout A.

Anyone know of substitutions that train the same muscles?
