I came out of hibernation
Tuesday, September 22, 2020
This month I have hiked over 70KM and trending to end at 96KM which means of course I want to see if I can hit 100.
At the start of year I had become so lethargic I logged one .8K walk for an entire month. That was my exercise, less than one KM. For a month. I can't even say I was in sloth mode, I was more like hibernating bear mode. Looking back at my food however I was eating like I was running 10K a week.
By May I was up to 50K for the month just in hikes. Every month increased and as my activity increased my eating navigated back to instinctively changed to healthier options. I took a break (very short) from tracking my foods to make myself think about what foods were going into my body. Now I use it to check my nutrients, not so much my calories.
Since June I've averaged 1.5 pounds lost a week! This is the first time in five years that I've had a consistent, long term weight loss.
I can't count the number of times I proclaimed I was back! This was it, this was the last time I was restarting! This was my rock bottom.
Apparently I was wrong, about 20 times.
I never wanted to give up and kept trying to pick up where I left off. So many times I'd say, I lost 2 pounds but let me tell you about the 100 I had lost. I've stopped that. I want to celebrate that milestone again when I get there.
Tomorrow is official weigh-in day and I look forward to them again. Lose, gain or the same I like the accountability.
To date I've lost 56 pounds, that's pretty awesome.
