Below are the results of last month’s 30 Day Weight Loss Challenge. These Before and After photos show how I lost 19.6 pounds in 30 days naturally through diet and exercise.
The basic rules of my challenge were that I had to eat three meals a day, couldn’t take dietary supplements, and I had to rest one day a week from exercise to allow my body time to recover. I started at 213.4 lbs and ended at 193.8 lbs, just shy of losing 20 pounds. My original goal was to lose 30 pounds in 30 days but I am certainly okay with losing 20! Part of the reason why I don’t think I did not get closer to the 30 pounds is because I started weight lifting halfway through the month. If I had stuck to my regime of walking/running and only cardiovascular exercise, I might have shaved a few more pounds off.
Overall I feel great! I developed some good eating and exercise habits and I ran 5 miles in a row, several times actually! I notice I pay a bit more attention to the dr oz diet suggestions when they pass on television. I’ve never run 5 miles in a row in my entire life up until this 30 Day challenge.
Without further ado, here are my before and after photos:
