So after the holidays I stepped on the scale only to find I gained something like 14 lbs… I was 199lbs. Obviously I wasn’t happy, but I wasn’t demoralized. One thing that I have found that has kept me motivated is dietbet.com. I’m currently in the midst of trying to lose 10% of my body weight in 6 months. There is a monthly challenge as well, and I was determined to make it this month… obviously last month didn’t go over so well.
I’m amazed at what I just did, mostly because it took a lot of will power and it’s also given me a lot more confidence that this journey is going to be a successful one. I CAN screw up at times, it isn’t the end of the world. I’ve proven that I can get back on track pretty quick. I know what I did wrong… I ATE!
When I fell off the wagon, I didn’t track for the last month of December. When I don’t track, I eat a hell of a lot more than I should. So, for the time being, I’ll be tracking as much as I can even when I get to my goal weight. This month I’ve also started weight lifting… nothing major, but I’ve found it made a huge difference. The previous month I was mostly concentrating on diet, and doing cardio whenever I had the opportunity.
Again, just super happy. Especially since I pigged out during the super bowl… mostly out of sadness. I’ve been a die hard Broncos fan ever since I was a kid. Needless to say, I wasn’t too happy. lol. At least my team was the 2nd best team in the league this year. *sniff sniff* Go Broncos.
