A year later I am almost back to my starting weight just 3 pounds shy from reaching it but I know why I got back to this point. It is hard to maintain weight and maintain the way of life you are trying to lead. I would have to say that during the course of the year I just lost the motivation to keep going. It has been like this the past 2 years when I was able to get down to 273 at one point in this weight loss journey. Now back at 315.6 I have to push myself to do something about it. Stop making myself rationalize that oh I will start tomorrow. I messed up today and I will do it better tommorrow. One of my small goals is to get under 300 prior to my family's first trip to Disney World in Late June 2011. That is 3 months to accomplish this goal. That should only be 5.3 lbs a month. However it would be better if I could make that 10lbs per month but I am starting to think of reality now and strive to a smaller more achieveable goal. So first thing that I would need to do is exercise. Drink more water. Track my food. I read blogs from my fellow teammates on how they lost so much and gained it mostly back and I can relate to them and now I will be joining them to try again.
