30 Pounds in 4 Months

Dharma Diet – Post # 8

Well, I actually made it! As of December 18th I had lost 30 pounds in just 4 months: from 172 to 142.

Unfortunately, I will likely have gained a few pounds back since we are in the middle of Christmas and New Years. I’m going to allow myself to enjoy a bit of food and drink without feeling guilty. I’ve accomplished far more than I ever thought I could, so a little reward is in order. (And since I’ve now “cracked the code” as it were, I don’t have any fear of being able to get back on track after the holidays.)

One frustrating result is that I still have a bit of a bicycle tire around my waist. I’ve come so far that I feel like I want to go a bit further to lose that. Therefore, I may go for an additional 5 pounds. Like many Christian churches this time of year, my church is doing a “21 Days of Fasting” challenge in January. So I may use that opportunity and “group effort” to try to knock out that final bit of bicycle tire.

Update on the book: I should have the book, Dharma Diet, available for pre-order on January 1st, and the goal is for it to be fully available in Kindle and paperback by the middle of the month.

Do not seek for things outside yourself.
