New Territory

Sunday, May 09, 2010

I have finally managed to get into new territory in the weight loss. I had been stuck at 265-270 since last July. This past week I managed to go from 269 down to my current weight as of today 263.8! Woo hoo for me!

I've been really increasing the protein and it seems to be paying off. I'm also staying on the high end of the calorie range and making better food choices. The exercise is still my three days a week classes and I'm trying to get myself to commit to walking and using the fitness center here at my apartment complex regularly but cannot seem to get it done. I seem to come home from work, sit down, and just veg. I suppose I could get a work out in before work as I'm certainly up early enough most days, however, that is my "me" time and it's quiet in the house and I just want to spend quiet time by myself. Not sure I'm ready to give that up. *sigh*

So ... I hope to continue the downward trend that has begun. I would love to be sitting at 230 when I go to see my surgeon in October for my two year follow-up appointment. I have made that my goal weight for now. Not sure it can happen as that is about 35 lbs in four months which at this point post op isn't very realistic. I am going to keep it as my short term goal knowing this but if I don't make it, I will not consider it failure. I need to commit to doing what it takes and having a goal, even such as this, helps to keep me on track.

    There is nothing I have to say that you don't know. However, 'tis a well proven fact that those who exercise in the morning get it done much more reliably than evening-ers. So maybe your time for "me" needs to change its character to help out "me" in a different way for a while. Hard to believe you are approaching 2 years. I am getting too old too fast..... Lee
