This is the fourth update for the year-long project of returning my physical self to a much lighter, and healthier, version of the past.
I’ll try to keep it short so as to not bore you with lots of details and try to just cover some of the lowlights and highlights, cutting to the chase at the end.
Not much has changed since the last update, including the weight loss. I have not gained and I have not lost any weight.
I am still not as active I should be. I know that at this point I am not going to get much more loss in the weight department unless I really cut back on the caloric intake OR unless I add more physical activity. Physical activity is hard to get motivated before, especially if it is outside of my normal routine at this point. Getting up early in the morning isn’t working, so it appears that I am going to have to make an adjustment somewhere to my evening schedule. The question is where/when will that have to take place?
Also, I haven’t been able to get out and go hiking since the last time I went.
- I haven’t gained anything and, despite feeling like I am eating too much at times, I haven’t gained any weight, which is a bit of a surprise. A good one surprise, but a surprise nonetheless.
- Despite not making a lot of progress on the weight loss, I have been really consistent on recording the calories I am consuming and have been able to record them in the app I use (LoseIt)consistently for over 100 days. *not a paid endorsement, I just use it and know it*
- I am do a better job of drinking water when I am at work rather than when I am home, which is weird but true.
So, that wraps up this portion of the show. Let’s cut to the chase…
210.0 = official starting weight 2/15/18
6.8 = pounds lost as of the morning of 6/10
203.2 = current weight
Thanks for you thoughts and encouragement as the journey continues! Progress feels good and that encourages further progress. It may be an uphill climb most days, but the view at the top is usually worth it!
I lost 5 lbs also, and seem to be stuck again, not losing but not gaining. I wish my attitude was as positive as yours. I get a bit too frustrated about not losing weight, but ignore that I haven’t gained any. Keep us updated – knowing you’re still trying to lose weight in spite of little progress makes me feel like I’m not in this alone.
Hey, thanks for stopping in and keep up the good work! Yes, when it has only been a few pounds it is hard to stay positive. I can’t say that I am all that positive at the moment either, but I am trying to find success in the little things – even if it is just a LITTLE weight loss. LOL See what I did there? Anyway, keep it up! Like I told someone the other day as we were talking about this, it’s the little things that add up to big things in the future.
