The first month I lost 4 pounds and and the second month I have lost another three pounds. Working out with weights makes taking off pounds more difficult as muscle is more dense than fat. So building muscle and losing weight at the same time is slow and the dramatic results are not seen as fast.
Then circumstances happened to slow down the exercise. I developed a sebaceous cyst on my back and the more I worked out on the weight bench the more it became irritated. I called for a doctors appointment and before I could get in it became sore and infected. Intervene a 5 foot plus snow storm that took us 4 days to shovel out. In the meantime it became the size of a tennis ball and was very painful before I was finally able to get in. Then the treatment every other day all last week and again today and the exercise routine was totally disrupted.
The healing is going to take at least another week or two before I can go back to working out. To have lost any weight with this intervention I consider good. Since it is exactly where my back rests on the weight bench there is going to be an interruption in the process. So we'll see if my program works but not as soon as expected. Further reports to follow. Set backs should be expected and that is no reason to abandon the program.
