Accountability of Weight: Update #10

This is the tenth update on this project. I started a 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.


I am sure you are all aware of this already, but we are getting into “eating season,” again, and it hasn’t been going well.

Cookies? Ok, I’ll eat those.

Donuts? Oh, sure why not.

Cake? Well, I haven’t had any of that today.

Going in the wrong direction anyone? I’ll take two steps back and a do not pass go, thank you.


I am thinking that I am gonna have to do something different and I am not sure what. This plan I had for the year just isn’t working like I was hoping it would and the results are just not there. No, wait, the results are there…just the wrong results. Right? So, the question is, I realize the way I am going about it now isn’t working so what am I going to do to change it?

Not sure that is a highlight, but a shred of something is a shred of something. I’m thinking that I am going to need some external help since the internal motivation just isn’t as high as I thought it was. Two months to go and something is really going to have to change!

The Chase:

210.0  = official starting weight 2/15/18

    4.0   = pounds lost as of the morning of 12/18

206.0  = current weight

Your thoughts, encouragement, and good juju as the journey continues is much appreciated! If you have ANY words of wisdom, it would be much appreciated at this point.



  1. It sounds like you’re turning the knobs in the right direction, so to speak, doing the things you know you need to do, eating better and exercising more. Personally, this year, I realized I needed to turn those knobs a little further, and I’m now finally starting to see some of the results I’ve wanted. Maybe just a little extra effort is all you need. Dig deep, keep at it, and good luck!

    1. Thanks for your comment, Curt. Being aware, I guess the saying goes, is half the battle right? I suppose that’s the easy half. LOL I am not giving up but it didn’t go as planned so there will definitely have to be some changes made.

  2. Keep going man, keeping each other accountable is key! Once you find what works, it gets so much easier to stay disciplined… by building habits it becomes automatic! Good luck!

    1. Thanks! I really appreciate you stopping by and taking a look. You are right about finding what works. I am starting to see that if I MAKE myself do it (exercise is a chore at this point), then it gets easier once it becomes a habit. So far this month, it is working.
