Max Atlas Year of Change Day Twenty-Eight
Today officially marks a full four weeks since I started this journey, and what an amazing ride it’s been so far. I can really tell that I’m making significant progress with my strength and fitness. Both physically and mentally, I feel a million times better than I did a month ago, but I’m most enthused by how far I’ve come on the mental side of things. If I showed you a picture of me from day one of my journeys and told you that in less than a month this guy would be eating healthy and getting up in the wee hours of the morning to work out, I’ve no doubt that you (and probably the version of me in the photo) would call me crazy!
Being disciplined about my fitness has enlightened me about so many other aspects of my life. I daresay that this diet has actually made me smarter in some respects, simply because of all the strategizing and critical thinking I’ve had to do in order to plan things and manage my cravings. Last but not least, pushing myself to the limit has strengthened my mind to a point where hard work almost comes naturally to me.
I definitely look a lot better than when I first started, and have lost a good amount of weight, but I’m still not satisfied just yet. In fact, I’m actually glad that I’m not content with just being okay because I can now safely say that I’m enamoured with the prospect of becoming the best version of myself. I’m really excited to see what challenges the next month will bring because I know that no matter what happens, I’ll just come out of the situation much better off than before.

Week FourBody Weight Reveal
I have taken this at the same time of the day, with just underwear on as I did on previous weigh ins.
- First thing in the morning
- After passing urine
- Underwear only
- Same Digital Scales
I think the progress is good, but also I am feeling stronger and healthier so that’s also a win, I want to lose like 10 kg in the month, but I want sustainable weight loss, so in the month I lost 3.7kg which is cool.
Day 28 of the Year of Change Wrap Up
One month in and it certainly has been a roller coasters ups and downs, and for sure has been at times a challenge but other times very normal and feeling right. So long as the wins outweigh the losses I’ll hang on in there.
