I Took A Good Look In The Mirror This Morning...

and I didn't like what I saw. I saw a guy who was totally committed a few months ago and is now at that point were I'm saying to myself "I've got to get back on track". I haven't gained back but I haven't lost either. Today I am clearing away all the crap in my head and just doing it. Today I am becoming a "warrior". Today I am committing myself to my goal. I must get down to 220 pounds. I must do it in a healthy manner. I must do it. So here is my new short term goal. I am going to lose 20 more pounds by June 1st. Period, End of Story!

April 10, 2010 Weigh In: 411 lbs, Gain 2 lbs

Ugh. I had a feeling I gained. Easter meal didn't help.... plus a few unauthorized snacks here and there. A few late night grazings. All the no-nos I know I have to avoid. Activity level has increased though with being outside and walking around baseball fields every few days. I recommitted to myself yesterday that I would get back on the stick. I will be going back to weekly weigh in again to make sure I'm staying on track. I will get back on track. I have to.

Do These Shorts Fit Me?

It's hot again in the NorthEast. Thank God! Thought I might go back to wearing shorts since the forecast was for 90 degree temps. Went to my closet for my old huge shorts and saw another pair I'd never worn. They were a few sizes smaller but did not fit me last summer. I decided to try them on and..whamo, they fit. I couldn't help but smile when I realized I could wear them. Things like this keep me on track. I needed it because I have a feeling I might have gained a few pounds after the great italian easter feast this past weekend. I didn't over do it but I definately ate more cals and more high fat foods that I normally do. It might take me a week more to recover but I will find out Saturday when I weigh in.

Saturday Update

Things are going OK. My family has been in Florida for the past week... coming home today. I've been home with my son and trying to stick to plan. I've had a few slips but nothing major... mostly eating after dinner. I made a commitment to myself this morning to get back on the train and stay within 1500 cals per day.

I had a great moment yesterday. I walked 1 mile. Yes a mile. I haven't walked that far for years and I felt great afterwards. I'm going to do the same today and plan to walk at least a mile each day. This should get the metabolism going.

That's all for now. Weigh in next Saturday.
