"Gonna make a change
For once in my life
It's gonna feel real good.."
Well, that part isn't true, losing weight typically sucks. A lot. There's the not eating all (and I mean all literally) the yummy food and the dreaded exer
Today was day 1 of "do right". I should start by saying the "do right" does not come naturally to me. Some friends and I were discussing our temptation foods, they had normal lists... I had
- Fried Chicken
- French Fries
- Italian Beefs
- Other foods topped with or stuffed with bacon
Today, I weighed in at a whopping 216. Four of those pounds are directly related to the "bloat" (sexy!!!) from yesterday's lunch. The rest of it is directly related to all of the things I stuff in my pie hole.
So even though today is not a Monday, I logged all of my calories. I had a goal of 1,200, which sounds like a lot. If someone offered me $1,200 I wouldn't think, "what am I supposed to do with that piddly amount?" but that's exactly how I felt about my calorie allocation. I pretty much failed at breakfast. Oatmeal cookies and hot chocolate out of the vending machine. Lunch was a Lean Cuisine (score!!!) and dinner was turkey nachos. Delicious, yummy, cheesy, delectable nachos. I ended up 104 calories over, which isn't THAT bad considering, well everything. And if I really wanted to I could use my "cardio" and offset those calories.
Not a bad start. Not a great start. Usually I'm good for a few days until I get stressed and need to medicate with yummy, fatty, goodness. That's probably part of the problem. It's yummy, fatty badness.
My goal weight is ~180, which is 36 pounds away.
Goal #1 - 6 pounds by 12/31/12
I'm not waiting until Jan 1st, I need to make life changes starting today. Hopefully, we can keep each other accountable. Because I know I'm not the only one fighting the bulge.
