So I have been gone for a while and have been easing back into this the last two weeks. I just switched my diet stage strategy and even got up at six this morning and pulled a full hour on the elliptical!!! That was quite a push I tell you but I think it got my metabolism going strong for the rest of the day. In the month or so I have been gone I think I did fairly well also (I did gain weight but only five pounds).
Now with the new year I feel reinvigorated and I have two months to go before my field season starts and I am gone almost everyday. Some days I will not even have internet access. So I figure I had better give it one good push. I think it would be great to be down another 30 or so pounds before I go and float around 260 - 270. I always seem to lose weight during the eight month field season. I have done really well and cut the alchohol consumption down to maybe twice per month so those useless calories will not be added. I started last field season around 360 lbs and dropped 23 over the eight months. Now, however, armed with the knowledge I have I am sure I can keep a ten pound a month pace!!! That will put me around 200 lbs by next winter!!! I think that would be fantastic because it is during the winter where I can really focus on that last thirty. So, I was gone for a while but I came back with a definate plan of action and I am recharged to carry it out!!!
