Lost 50, gained 10.
Monday, December 17, 2012
I reached one of my mini goals of losing 50 pounds. Then came the true test of sticking with it through the stress. Oops.
The last month of school, the holidays, and everything in between took me right off track. The bad news, I gained back 10 pounds in 5 weeks. The good news, I know I can lose it. I already came to the conclusion that I work in cycles. This was just one of them. Now comes the cycle of losing. If I gain back 10 pounds for every 50 I lose, I think I'm still doing pretty good, considering. I'm still less than 280, where I was just a year ago.
So a couple days ago, I started working out again. I need to sit down and write out my formal plan. That seems to help me out a lot. Baby steps. I will slowly but surely get healthy. I will accept that it won't be a steady process because I don't do steady processes. I will not be one of those 100 pounds in a year success stories. But I will be a success story. Eventually.
