I would be lying if I wasn't slightly disappointing by my overall weight loss over the last couple of weeks. and as I know what I can achieve, I want to get there again BUT... there are some major differences from when I weighed 52kgs and now, one being the most significant is that I am stronger, I feel stronger and Spartan last week proved that I am.
My Cardio during that time was quite crazy with a lot of road running involved, hence the issues with the knees and ankles (and true running really does help with the weight loss and keeping it off BUT... if you get injured, you can start putting on the weight again), so alternatives need to be found.
Of course over the next 8 weeks, I will be continuing to monitor my weight and take a weekly photo just so I can see the physical changes (maybe at the end I will add the pics, but not now) BUT... the one key thing that I did do at the start of this journey was take my overall statistics including full body measurements and muscle and fat percentages. This, I believe is where we are going to see the changes and not on the scales.
