A Year-One Reset
Monday, May 20, 2019
It has been one year since I finally took my weight issues seriously. I have lost 70 pounds and I am very happy with my success so far, but I still have 30ish to go. Last year my weight loss was very consistent, about 6 pounds a month. This year, well actually since December, has been much slower, closer to 2 or 3 pounds a month. But this month?
Well this month has been a tough month weight-loss wise. The fault is all mine; too much junk going into my mouth. I need to regain control and I am not sure how to do it. I know what to do, but by evening I just start eating and throw all caution to the wind.
Why? Why am I doing this? What is driving my appetite? This week I want to really focus on this, figure out why I am doing it and what are the triggers, and what I can do to stop it.
My goal this week is to pass on after dinner eating of all kinds. No dessert, no chips, no handful of nuts or cheese to quell the tummy demons. If I start the grazing I will go straight to bed. Resist! Have a big glass of water or cup of tea and go to bed.
I hope to lose at least 2 pounds this month but since I have gained 3 pounds, that means I have to lose 5 pounds in the next 12 days. That is my goal. 5 pounds from now until May 31, which will put me at 170.
