Yo-yo'd. Again.

Wednesday, August 28, 2013


How many times will I yo-yo back? Back up to 280 lbs dead from 270.2 on the 3rd August. Had too many days where I wasnít tracking in time, so ended up over on calories with poorer quality foods, way over. Eejit.

There are detractors who say weight loss isnít simple thermodynamics, and there is SOME merit in that argument, but itís at least partially true. Need to stop buying processed foods and gulping them down, because theyíre just too damned easy to eat.

Tiredness, lack of energy is an issue, which is helping me to make bad choices everywhere - work, walking, exercise, procrastination, laziness, so got a step tracker with sleep tracking. The new Fitbit is working well for sleep tracking - even went to be early last night, about 11:20, and rolled over to sleep at 11:41. This is good for me. Yet STILL, only ended up getting up earlier than normal with a sore back, with just over 5 hours sleep, so thatíll be another difficult day FFS. Might use this info to try one of the other two beds in the house tonight, see how that affects things. Will also experiment with music while I sleep, other sounds, lights on/off. Perhaps itíll be something seemingly insignificant.

Anyhow, Iím here, Iíve yoyoíd, need to spend upcoming month getting down to about 270 again (which Iíve proven I can do) only this time stay there at the very least, rather than reverse it.

    Excellent possibilities on the sleeping thing. It could be something that you may not think is a big deal but it could be just the thing. Could luck!!!! You will get back to 270 again. Keep up the fight!

    I love the sleep monitoring of the Fitbit. I typically wake up about 22 times a night and have an 85% efficiency. I know I have sleep apnea, but the pressure is to high on the cpap that it has to be so tight it hurts. Also the plastic inside will flutter against my face waking me.

I think the 8 hours is just a myth. I feel my best when I get about 5 hours. Of course, it could be my age!

    I have a clock radio that I use to play background sounds so I can sleep. I believe that for me sleep is a key issue in eating healthy and generally making good choices. Glad to see you post - find myself wishing you well even when it's been awhile since I've seen you on Spark. Best wishes to you - we can do this!
