Today I am very positive about the success of this diet in the long run. Just a few more tweaks and a few more disciplinary thoughts and I’m sure on the way to losing weight.

The past 40 days has been a learning experience for me but it’s been great. I haven’t lost a ton of weight and I’m holding a ton of water from my extra high sodium intake but I feel a lot better about my body.

I am able to work well and I feel that I’m slowly becoming stronger. That is one of the most important feelings that I value in fitness. Feeling strong. I am sure it is all relative but it does feel nice to pick up heavy things and be able to lift them with confidence.

That’s not to mean I am powerlifting. In fact in the gym I attend I probably belong to the lower 25% percentile when it comes to lifting poundage. But I’m an old guy not wanting to impress gym goers. I feel old with the company of young men pushing really heavy weights with their buddy spotters.

They remind me of what my friends and I were doing a very long time ago. Ah the cycle of gym life. Perhaps one day I’ll feel like that old guy that everyone keeps seeing at the gym. Pleasant, happy and wrinkly. ;) But Strong!
