Is anybody still here? Will anybody see this?
I'm putting out the call. Hoping some will answer...
Gonna simplify it a little. Five 10-pound phases on my way to 50 pounds.
So, 316.2 was my new starting point. Phase one ends at 306.2, Phase 2 at 296.2...and so on, until I hit my end goal of 266.2. So, I'm 20% of the way to my Phase One goal...for what that's worth.
Yesterday, the worst thing I ate was a handful of animal crackers when I got home from work. While I'm there, I try to spend more time walking the floor than I do spinning cameras, just so I can get a little activity.
I have a gym membership, but I still can't get over that intimidation factor, so I don't take advantage of it.
Down 1.0 pounds
Been a long time since I've posted here, huh? I won't bore you with the details, but I'll just say that I've kept my yo-yo dieting streak intact, much to my dismay. I do great, get lazy, gain weight, start over...
Consider this the latest "start over" phase.
Last May I dropped to 278.6. Tomorrow, I assume I'm going to weight right about 315. Yeah, 315. And I'm ashamed to post that publicly. But I also know that putting my struggles and wins out there was a huge motivation for me when I went from 366 to 270. So, I'm back, feeling sick about who I've let myself become again.
Let's see what I can do this time around.
First, please feel free to join my Facebook page HERE.
Now, here's how things have looked for me over the last two months, or so:
July 2011: Weighed in as high as 316.2
August 2011: Tried to recover, ended up hovering around 309
September 2011: Not much change. Lost a pound or two through zero effort
October 1, 2011: Weighed 307.2. Rebooted my weight loss
October 22, 2011: Weighed 296.6. My lowest in well over a year
It really has been a great October. It's all about my food intake. I haven't had more than 2-3 cheat meals in three weeks. I've re-inserted whole grains, and removed simple carbs. I stop eating at 8pm, unless I'm working until 10. A little dairy, but not much. Snacks are now 1/2 a PB sandwich, or a snack pack of jerky, and not candy bars or a donut. I've had a lot of water, too.
I don't want to say it's been simple, but I will say that it hasn't been much work. Next goal is 289.8.
I'm already wearing a pair of my 38 jeans, again. It feels good...
