Although some would argue to the contrary, losing fat when you’re obese is generally pretty easy.
However, toning up and stripping the last of the fat is a slower, more difficult process with much smaller degrees of progress.
That’s where I’m beginning to get to now as I enter into the fourth week.
I said last week that I would be upping the intensity of some exercises. I did that, and I could really feel the burn in my legs by Wednesday.
The nutritional aspect is going pretty well. I slacked off on my water intake for a couple of days, and very quickly noticed an increase in water retention. So yesterday (Friday) I had a lot of water to try and compensate.
This shows the importance of being consistent with your water intake. I was drinking more than what I used to, but it was less than the first two weeks, so my body began to retain water.
Various thoughts this week:
I only managed to get two videos done this week, but they’re both on the longer side. Hopefully they’re helpful to you:
Week 3 Results
Anyway, this morning I got Melanie to do measurements for body composition. Before I started the plan, she did a Jackson/Pollock 7-point calliper calculation for body fat, and measured the circumference of my arms, legs, etc. We did this all again this morning.
Here are the results:[one_third] Starting Measurements

After three weeks, I’m delighted with how things are progressing. There are a few things I’ve noticed:
- I still don’t feel hungry between scheduled meals
- My strength and energy is making noticeable progress
- My skin tone and complexion is transformed and I’m getting far fewer skin blemishes (spots, pimples, etc).
