    I can, I should, I will.

    Beginning again, from the beginning

    Here's what I know. Tracking my calories and maintaining a calorie deficit results in weight loss. Exercise for as little as 30 minutes a day increases weight loss. I can do this.

    At Least I have a reason...

    At least I have a reason I thought, but I didn't . I was doing great at my weight loss, down 20 pounds just from diet alone. I didn't do any thing difficult I just made a simple commitment to lose weight and stop eating like I wanted to be fat. I have to say it's really easy to see what you're doing to yourself when you track the foods you eat. So I didn't cut anything out, I just said 1500 calories a day of whatever I wanted to eat for each meal and paid attention to portions (it really makes me decide what to eat rather than just eating until I decide). I was supposed to add exercise to my plan which I never did get to figuring into my daily routine, but I was still doing gangbusters. At a moderate pace I had simply made the change in my habits of eating and was eating as if I wasn't fat. I think that's the best thing about daily burn is I know how many calories it will take to maintain my corpulence, but every calorie under is a plus. Anyway, I was down. I'd changed a habit. So it was time to change another, the smoking. Something that I had trouble with in the past because I lived with a smoker, but she quit and and I quit with her. It actually was really easy once the daily reminder was gone. another habit changed. But now, a month and a half after quitting I realize I've been on an eating rampage. It's amazing how quickly I put all the weight I'd lost back on. I knew I was being a bit ridiculous, but jeez! I guess my point is my excuse was I'm quitting smoking which is just as evil and damaging to my body as obesity, while I lapsed right back into obesity. So I really have no excuse. It would be the same as a non-smoker losing weight and picking up tobacco. Anyway, these are the things we learn from right? Remain ever vigilant, no matter what the storm may bring, you stay the course. And with that, once more into the fray

    A Year and 7 lbs

    Damn. I can't believe it's been a year since my surgery. Granted I was still slow moving and in pain till June, I still could have done more about my diet. It's so easy to not pay attention to. So here I am a mere seven pounds lighter than the heaviest I've ever been in my life one year ago, when I was completely unable to exercise. So my response...P90X. I'm going to do what I should have been working towards all year in the next 100 days.

    Everyday Battle

    It took one day and it wasn't worth it. I don't care what people say about it taking time and to look for gradual results and having cheat days and be happy with weekly progress of 2 pounds off. Alternately I know things don't happen overnight and that it will take time to undo damage I took years to do to myself. But I'm choosing to believe in fighting for it everyday. Every moment. This realization came after my single meal deviation from what had been an exemplary start to a diet program. I had two pieces of pizza. thats all. After a week of consistent eating we went out. I had no idea it could be so bad. My calorie count which had been around 1500 all week leapt 600 calories and the fat levels were off the scale. The next day my steady decrease towards the first 10 pounds off (I was at 9.5) dropped back by 2 pounds. To me this is unbelievable. how these little allowances I give my self have such detrimental effects on my overall results. So today I finished the leftovers (yes I'm serious about losing weight, but I'm not throwing away food--only one piece and I reduced the rest of my day's intake to pre-compensate). Then I had some chocolate, a treat the wife got for me and my daughter that was something I wasn't gonna pass up. Because of the time with my daughter, not the candy, but the sharing. Anyway I realized you really have to be vigilant all the time. You can go astray so easy that it is a battle everyday for that one pound everyday. there is no break or cheat or other option. every decision counts and matters. You can't think in the long view you have to remain ever present that this is what you are fighting every moment of everyday are the inconsequential moments that are the daily tipping point between success and failure.
