2022-12-12 - Weigh InI weighed in at 342.1 lbs. this morning (see photo to the left). This means that I’m down a whopping 3.1 lbs. since yesterday, and 4.9 lbs. since I started this diet.

Here’s how I did today! The following rules are based in order of importance…

[Yes/No] Rule #1: Spend your day focusing on something other than food.  You will save a lot of time not having to prep during this plan, so what will you spend your time on?

I started to read “The Intelligent Investor”, which Warren Buffet states is the best book on investing ever created.  Pretty good endorsement!

[Yes/No] Rule #2: I can only eat for 8 hours a day maximum.  This means that I will be fasting for a minimum of 16 hours each day.

2022-12-12e - Mashed PotatoesFor my final food item of the day I had a nice bowl of mashed potatoes (see photo to the right).  The crumbled goat cheese on the top made the whole meal delish!
