a daunting task, this losing weight business...

Monday, March 29, 2010

i try not to think about it but lets face it...i have a long ways to go still. yes, i have come a long way from 284 (wont mention the depo shot fiasco with the horrendous gain..oops, too late) but i still have such a long ways to go. for my height, even 160 is overweight.
how did i get so damn fat?

whatever. focusing on the positive.
trying to.

got in four hours biking.
did some ab exercises and some leg exercises. not all i wanted but i did a lot. when you wake up already tired, whatever you do is a victory..
and i did some of my arm workout with 18lb weights. wowie. hard. couldnt finish...that hard. dont understand why it is that i can carry a 48lb bag of dog food up the stairs but cant lift 18lbs over my head.

weighed in at 227.2 again today but i expected it to be higher so im thrilled. w00t.

ending the day at 2250 calories or thereabouts. just cant seem to get my calories any lower. whatever. it is definitely in my spark range but i would love to be at 1400-1600 calories. not sure.
i think i am gonna take a page outta aqua's book and go back through my old stuff. i kept all my food journals of what i was eating.
i think that maybe i forgot about something that was no/low calorie that i could have?
it just seems that all of my food lately is higher calorie.

dunno. we'll see.

    You are doing so well! This IS a daunting task! I'm also having trouble (have since Christmas) getting my calories down. Trying to take one day at a time and stay positive. Like you, my exercise is pretty good, which is a big bonus! We will do this!
