Jack Weighs In 8/31

Could Have Been Worse

During summer vacation, I took more than month off from getting weighed by Dr. Pratha Atluri at the Medical Weight Management Center in Montgomery -- and expected the worst this week, when I finally climbed back on the scale.

As it turned out I gained just three pounds. And that's after a LOT of misguided eating, though at least not gorging.

What to do now? Well, Dr. Atluri wants me to go back on the calorie restricted diet I started with, complete with protein shakes.

Meantime, Jim Nichols, my trainer at Club Champions in Landen, says that more sporadic exercise than usual has left my strength (such as it was) unimpaired, by my stamina sapped. But no going back here. We're, if anything, adding steadily to the reps and weight I'm lifting.

Keep your stories coming. And best of luck now that we're all getting back to normal schedules.

Your pal,

Jack
