My Goals Became a Struggle
Thursday, May 02, 2013
I do not know if there is any of you out there who is going through what I am going through. When I started to actively lose weight , my starting point was over 234 lbs. Between different work out spurs and dieting , I went down to 215 lbs. That was the lowest I have been in years. That is a total of 19 lbs. I know some of you will think wow that is a great deal and I know somewhat it is but considering I could not stick to it, I am back at 226 lbs. In the meantime, I quit smoking - this was the plus side of things which I am very happy about.
I have been working on new paintings, exploring options of digital works as well - which is a lot of fun - I have been creating a lot of new pieces as well. I posted a digital rework of one of my newer paintings.
The last diet I tried was the Atkins Diet (It worked but it did not work) Let me explain - For 3 weeks I followed it like crazy with minimum workouts as the diet suggests for beginners. I lost about 6 lbs and then I quit one way or the other because this kind of eating was causing me to cook twice 3 times a day - not very easy - the first week of giving up on this diet I gained 4 lbs - and then I gained another 4 lbs the following weeks. So this one is crossed out of my list.
My biggest excuse/ issue is that I am a very picky eater and I hate to cook for myself. There are times I just skip meals on a daily basis because I do not feel like eating etc. After quitting smoking it changed a bit since I am not just relying on a great cup of coffee in the mornings anymore. However , I have not had any energy to work out at all in the past few weeks
Thank you for reading my rant, I am starting slow this time and see how everything goes - If you have advice on what is a great diet for someone very picky please share because I am truly struggling with all of these diets out there :(
Good luck to everyone with their goals!
