Well after a week of vacation and weight gain of 2 pounds, I knew that it was time for my to get back into the box, back on track, and back to the basics! Well I am happy to say that it has worked out in a great way, I have lost 9 pounds this week! That makes my weight loss a staggering 221 pounds! That means that I am only 6 pounds away from my goal of 227 pounds! Oh what a great day that will be!!
It has been interesting for me to try and navigate the world of eating right and staying on the diet. This last week I ate out of the box 2 times and even though it was awesome, I felt guilty enough to work out extra hard those days, we will see how long that feeling lasts.
I felt that it was time that I included some new pictures so here is one of me at my high school graduation and one today:
Well I must apologize for the near two-week absence from my blog. I have been busy with some things and spent some time on vacation as well, so my blogging got put on the back burner.
Well I must say that their has been a lot of things go on that I need to catch everyone up on so here it goes:
I ran almost five miles last week!! I never thought that I would get in to or like running like I do, but I must say that it is quite awesome! I am currently working on being able to run a six-mile loop near my house. This also serves as good training for the 5K that I have coming up.
I have completely made the transition from all shakes to all real food, now I am eating, and navigating the crazy world of regular food while trying to finish up my dash to the finish line.
I am now only 15 pounds away from the finish line of 227 pounds. I still can’t believe that I am this close to my goals.
As I said earlier I was on vacation this last week, and went into it with no plan, or illusions that I would stay on my diet. As a result I posted the first weight gain this journey, 2.3 pounds to be exact. There are several things that I have learned from this last week.
Old habits are super easy to come back. Eating like I did last week, shocked me how I fell right back into those old habits.
Without any exercise in your life, weight gain is almost inevitable.
As amazing as I remembered all that bad food being to eat, I forgot about how bad I felt after eating it. Tired from to many carbs, sluggish from over eating, and addicted to the act of eating not eating for sustenance.
After my trek back into the waters of over indulgence, I have been more committed than ever to seeing this through. Not only to my goal weight, but to the lifestyle change that I know it is going to take.
I always seem to work better when I have a goal that I am working to, right now my major goal is to make it to my goal weight by Halloween. The other goal that I have is to work up my distance so that I can run a Marathon before my two-year Weigh loss journey start date!
