I've decided to give myself monthly goals rather than six month goals to keep myself more focused. My six month goal is still 200 pounds by Christmas, but I think my end of August goal will be 231. I'm gonna make my aggressive end of August goal 225, so I will try everything in power to healthily reach 225, but if I only make it to 231, I will be very happy. That'll be 50 pounds lost, and I'll have made it a third of the way towards my final goal weight.
I really have a hard time doing anything these days without thinking about calories, weight loss, inches lost, trying on smaller clothes, etc... It's especially hard when I go out to eat with people. I'm assuming that it's because it's the only thing I feel like I can control right now. I'm trying really hard to put myself in the position to make more money or get a better job, but it takes money to do that, so I'm stuck in a circle for the time being. What I eat and how much I weigh is entirely under my control, and keeps me from getting depressed about the other aspects of my life that try and keep me down.
I'm not very good at writing blogs that have any meaning or substance to anyone other than myself, but it's more a form of therapy for me than anything else.
