We are back on track with Big Daddy's lifestyle change. During the first half of the week, Big Daddy was a bit discouraged. No matter how hard he tried to watch his caloric intake, he couldn't seem to lose anything.

Then, three days into the week, he dropped two pounds! Some slight changes have been added to his lifestyle change:

1. He is drinking more green tea, which studies have shown help with weight loss (along with a plethra of other wonderful things for your body).

2. He pairs simple carbohydrates with acids like vinegar and lemon juice. Good Housekeeping's April 2009 issue had an article saying that acids ingested in combination with simple carbohydrates may slow the absorption of those simple carbs, allowing them to be converted into energy rather than fat.

3. He has upped his activity level with gardening, lawn care, and some more strenuous jobs.

And here is the tally so far:

Starting weight = 312 pounds

Ending weight this week = 297 pounds

Weight loss this week = 2 pounds

Total weight loss = 15 pounds

Congrats to him! As someone who has lost 100 pounds, I know it can be an uphill battle. Great job getting back on track!

Awesome. So cool that he kept going even though discouraged. I didn't know that acid thing.
