I am trying to get myself on a schedule and stick to it. I have decided part of this schedule will include a weekly weigh-in and post on this weight loss progress. Last week was vacation and while I thought it would be challenging to stick to the diet, I think I actually did better over vacation than I do during the regular work week. I found myself eating a lot less during the day and I was able to devote some time to exercise. I mapped a nice 5k route to walk and did that four nights over vacation. I also let my girlfriend convince me to try a spinning class. Holy hell! Spinning is some serious work. I was walking funny for a couple of days
Can we just take a moment and reflect on that total loss? 14 pounds. That’s a dress size. Clothes fit and look better. My spring coat? I can button it again. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me. I am motivated. It ain’t easy and sure, I want to eat some ice cream, but I am determined to see this through. I know that weight shouldn’t define how you feel about yourself, but it does. When I am healthy, I feel better, not just physically but emotionally. I have more confidence and I know I project that when I feel good in my clothes and with my body. I am getting there. I will be there. The goal is by August, I will be 165. 14 more pounds to go. Hell, I’ve done that already. Half-way there baby!!
