Really struggled last week with the food. Why is this so hard. I really admire those that make a commitment, focus on their goal and stay on track 'til they reach their target. People like Sean, JackSh*t, Diane, Tony theAnti-Jared and Jen.I don't know what its going to take for me to reach that level of committment. Diabetes doesn't do it. High cholesterol doesn't do it. All the other risks I KNOW I'm running doesn't do it.
Right after my doc's appt last week (with the "naked truth") and I picked up a new med due to my cholesterol results I headed right for the convenience store for my old "usual" binge foods. Haven't done that for months - long before I started this blog back in Aug. I started thinking (planning?) on this when I left work so it wasn't the visit that triggered it. Not a bad day at work either.
And made very poor food choices last week before and after that day as well. The only thing that is giving me small wt losses - and preventing a huge gain this week -is the hours I'm spending doing yard work. Imagine how much more progress I would have made if I was more committed and controlling my food choices and portions. Extensive exercise providing wt loss is a typical pattern for me. Getting late/long story so stay tuned 'til tomorrow.
Here are my pathetic results for the
