A couple of months later....
Monday, November 15, 2010
Well as always, it has been a couple of months since I last posted. I have been doing well, at least until last week, with about a little under a pound a week weightloss. I am doing the elliptical at least 3-4 times a week, and some funky stuff on the ab lounger for some tummy issues. All in all, pretty good. Just not doing well with food some days. I love eating too much. Just keep telling myself, "all in moderation". That seems to work for the most part. I don't think I'll ever be the tofu salad kinda guy, but I can eat lighter and in less portions than I did before. I have slip ups, especially here at work, where free food is abundant from day to day. The difference is now I feel guilt and use that to work harder and be more active (thank you pedometer!).
As for last week, my family and I mourned the loss of my maternal grandmother. No, her and I were not the closest. She would often greet me with, "my how big you've gotten Kevin", and I imagine that comes with the age where you can say whatever the "F" is on your mind, but no, we were not close. It's just that with my mom, it was a major tragedy, and I hated seeing her so upset. So with funerals and family get togethers, there was food, and plenty of it. Not to mention, we were out of town for the event, and so there was also fast food involved. At the end of the week, when I did my Saturday weigh in, I was only up about 3/4 of a pound. So not too bad, but I still felt that guilt, and I am striving to lose that and the pound for this week as well.
Wish me luck!
