Well, after prompting from my best friend Andrew, I have decided to bring back Weigh-Day Wednesday! I needed to do this not only because he asked me to, but I know if I don’t keep myself accountable, I will just let it slide little by little. I know this, because it has happened to me again. I was down to 330 at the end of the No More Bacon Biggest Loser Competition. In the weeks since that has finished, I find myself back up almost all the weight I lost during that time.
Argg, it is frustrating, but just another reason why I need to push this time. I have the support of my family and the support of a knowledgeable trainer. I have three months to get down some weight before the baby is born.
I know a lot of the gain was stress due to the BL audition. I was coping with stress by eating and I kept telling myself once I heard, then I will knock it off. Well that waiting took a few weeks and before I knew it… WHAMMMM. And even though it shames me to admit it, I have gained over 20 pounds in less than a month. YIKES!
So, here is to admitting failures, but understanding that all failures become opportunities to succeed. I will not be ruled by the scale like I have been, but I do want to make sure I am cognizant of where I am. So today… I am 353.8 lbs. And even though it was a gain from where I was a month ago, it is still a far cry from the 420lbs I was last year. I am still succeeding as this journey is not measured in days, weeks, or years. I know this is a lifelong journey to save the very thing I wish to continue… My life.
And on a positive note, I am going to a Meetup tomorrow night to meet people. After looking up different meet-up groups, I decided that a gaming group would be the most like me. So I shall meet and greet over boardgames and dice rolling. Secondly, I may be taking my fencing goal off as the more I see what fencing is, it is not what I want to do. It is too quick and not flashy enough. Lastly, I am adding cooking to my goal list. Cooking is something I have been working on for a few months, but haven’t taken it seriously. My goal is now to cook one new recipe per week. And to ensure I do it, I am going to make it a weekly post on here. I will have Torture Tuesday, Weigh-Day Wednesday, and then this soon-to-be-named day. My week is filling up.
Well that is it… a confession… some disappointment… some sillyness… some uplifting thoughts… Board Games… a few goal updates… and then the end (Which I am sure you are glad to see).
And one last thing before I go. As promised, below is a screenshot of my GW Fit data for yesterday. I did pretty well. I ate my targeted 2500 calories and burned over 4,000, so in the end I had a calorie deficit of 1800 calories. That is technically 1 pound lost for every 2 days. I can live with that.
