I had a few weaknesses during this challenge. I struggled with my personal protein goals during this challenge. I thought I would be hitting them consistently since I'm usually good at getting my protein, but going from a goal of 45g of protein a day to 135g, I suddenly found myself struggling. Even eating two protein based meal shakes a day couldn't save me. My other weakness during this challenge was getting my butt kicked by my allergies and having to living on Benedryl several days.. which knocks me out.
I also had a few successes during this challenge! Despite struggling with eating more lean macros and not working out much more than usual, I still lost weight consistently during this challenge. I definitely think eating higher protein, and taking fucoTHIN Green three times a day definitely made the difference. However, not once did I feel like I was depriving myself or surviving on diet pills.
On day 9, I weighed in at 125.something. I was shocked and impressed. Today, after a night of not sleeping and in general definitely retaining water weight (I feel very bloated and just not good today), I weighed in at 130 pounds. I am putting off weighing in for a few days. Yesterday, I could see new bone definition on my hips and was in general very pleased with how I looked and felt. It's amazing how one bad night of sleep can wreck how you feel.
I know it's been a few days since this challenge ended. It's been insanely cold and I've been working nonstop. I will get some updated photos for your soon. I'm very happy with the results of the challenge and wouldn't mind doing it again!
