8/14: Wow, it’s been a minute, huh? I am still holding at around 131-135. I have been exercising a LOT more. I plan to make a page for my exercise–keep me accountable.
Update (6/11): Well, I am holding steady at 132-ish. I’ve been sick for TWO WEEKS. Went to the doctor. He told me to gargle. Seriously? Yesterday my temp was at 101. My normal, everyday temp is 96 so, do the math. I am extending my goal date from June 30 to July 31. I have been unable to really exercise for three weeks (broken toe and this damn cold).
Update (5/29): No update for a while because, well, no movement to speak of. I have bounced around the same weight for weeks. Today, however, I am at 132.6. Yay, me.
Update (5/1): I kinda forgot to update. It hasn’t been all that hot for the last month anyway. As of today, my weight stands at 135. That’s a loss, but it’s so damn slow that it is killing me! I won’t make my June 30 goal of 120 at this rate.
Update (4/2): It dawned on me that I didn’t update on Monday. Sheesh. I was at 137 even. Fat Secret now tells me that it will take TWENTY months to reach my goal.
Update (3/21): Weighed 137.2 today. According to Fat Secret, it will take me 11 months to get to my goal. That’s encouraging <sarcasm>.
Update (3/14): Weighed 137.6 on Monday (weigh-in day). That’s almost a pound. I know, I still need to get my measurements posted. I am moving in the right direction!
Update (3/7): Weighed in at 138.4 this morning. That’s down a pound. Whoo-hoo! Soon I’ll get my measurements up.
Anyone who knows me knows that I am on yet another weight loss journey. If you are around me for more than five minutes at a time then you know this obsession of mine. I am trying so hard every day and sometimes I feel as if I’m treading water. It’s hard and I hate it. I wish I could eat ice cream and brownies all day. But I can’t. I wish I didn’t tell everyone at work how many calories I’ve eaten today. But I do. I wish I liked to exercise. But I absolutely DON’T!
In 2001 I started at 208 pounds. By July of 2003 I was at 124.5. I stopped journalling my food and I slowly went back up. Not all the way. But I ended up back at about 164. We had a weight loss challenge at work and I lost back down to around 135. I bounced around there for a while. Last March (2010) I went to the doctor and saw that, once again, I was at 164.
At the end of December, I got serious. I log my food; I log my exercise (the woeful little there is); and I log my damn feelings. I’m sick of it. This is my life, though. It is what it is. Today I weigh 139. I can’t even believe that I am saying that (so to speak) so that real people who know me can see it. I’m embarrassed of it. I don’t want to weigh 139. I want to weigh 118. I don’t know if that’s possible.
I plan to post here at least weekly about my hell, I mean journey. I want to be accountable as well as successful. I’d like to help someone else along the way. If anyone is reading this, please let me know if I can help.
