The Eucharist Diet: Continued

The Eucharist Diet: Continued  

March 20, 2010

Day 79

Weight: 196 lbs

Weight lost: -10 lbs

I have not forgotten; I have not quit. I am continuing my “Eucharist Diet” adventure, my six month experiment taking daily communion and then tracking the results in my personal life, relationships, health, and body fat percentage. I’ve held off reporting my progress for the last month. It was getting a bit excessive and probably boring to my readers. So I backed off, not on the experiment but on my exposure. Today I thought I should add this short update: In brief, there’s been no major change in the last 30 days. I’m still parked at 10 pounds down off my starting point.

I’m still hungry for Jesus; I’m still feeding my soul with his substance… He’s enough.

More to come.

    Hey Mark I was following your Eucharist experiment with eating. We haven’t receive an update in a while. What’s up? Please don’t say your too busy.
    I did the 12 week 3-D Diet (diet [loosely based on W. Watcher’s program before pt. system]. disciple & discipleship by Carol Showalter) and got rid of 50 lbs. Now I’ve I began the same program at my church and over the past year have gotten rid of another 70 lbs. I state ‘rid of’ as lost things can be found.
    I walk 6 days a week (making sure I elevate my heart rate to optimum level to burn calories) and lift weights at the area YMCA. And lb. by lb. I’m working my way down to 240 lbs. my goal. And when I achieve it I’m going to make sure I stay there. And I don’t deny myself a taste of anything, but I’m real careful when anything has sugar in it.

  • Why am I not losing weight

    I just started the Eucharist Diet, hope everything is gonna be alright :)
