I told my wife yesterday that my shirt was fitting looser and it must be a miracle. She laughed and said that it would have to be… well maybe I imagined it or maybe I did. Either my shirt felt looser yesterday. 🙂
My day went well yesterday. I ate good except the piece of pineapple upside down cake but I worked hard and I don’t want to deprive myself to the point of it being a turn off to the whole process. I don’t think one piece of cake is going to kill my progress and I find people who act like it will annoying.
I changed my walking route to avoid satan’s pathway. It added about .4 miles to my distance but i covered 3.5 miles in 54 mins. I read some where a few days ago that if you can walk 3-4 miles in an hour or less you should try running. Ultimately that is my goal but I don’t think that is in the cards until spring.
I used to run 3-5 miles a day a few years ago and had lost about 60 pounds. I pushed myself a little hard at the time and in the process hurt my knee. That sidelined my weight loss and got me back to about 280. I started hiking in 2011 and re-lost all of the weight I had gained. Life choices and ignorance lead me to stop doing that and i gain all the weight back and a little more… landing me at 293.8.
The most I have ever weighed was 315 in around 2008. life was bad for me then and I used food to help cope.. I still do in a lot of ways. It fills boredom and emotional needs… and it taste good. 🙂
My biggest challenge will always be the emotional/mental aspects of dieting. To get my mind to understand that I am not hungry, I have already eaten, and that I will be ok without a diet coke and some cookies/ chips.
Definitely decided to do weigh-ins on Sundays. So this sunday I expect to see something less than 293.8.
Back at it again tomorrow morning!
