I seem to really be struggling on multiple levels. I am going to need to change some things about the way I do this blog. I think it will be best if I switch to doing weekly weigh ins. I just have a hard time updating the blog on weeknights. Now I will weigh every Saturday.

My weigh in today was not good at all. I gained nearly four and half pounds (4.4). My current weight is 354 pounds. This brings me to the other change that I need to make.

I have really been struggling with giving up soda. I have to drink more water. I also need to start getting some steps in. My knee doesn't hurt as bad anymore, so I really can't use that as an excuse to keep me from walking.

I just need to get myself together in some other ways as well. If you think about it and are open to praying for me, I would certainly appreciate it. The next weigh in will be on the 27th. Until then, goodbye!

Where Have I Been?

Hello everyone! I have been away from the blog for quite a while. It has been more than a month since my last blog update. I have weighed in on a couple of occasions but just didn't make the time to update the blog. I apologize for that.

The start of the school year is always a busy time for a public school employee and this year is no different. My oldest daughter also started high school which I find terrifying on multiple levels. For one thing, I don't feel old enough to have a high school student so that is kind of crazy. Also, how can she be old enough to be in high school anyway? It was just yesterday that she was walking around in diapers. Wasn't it?

Anyway, to get to the point, I did weigh in a couple of times since the last weigh in. Here are the numbers on those specific dates.
  • July 16th - 349.6 pounds
  • August 6th - 353.4 pounds
  • August 10th - 349.6 pounds
My weight has been bouncing around for about a month now. I have been getting some good steps at work and my calorie consumption has not been too bad. I think if I can focus a bit more I can expect some decent weight loss.

I have mentioned this before, but I had lost quite a bit of weight once before. Nearly one hundred pounds in fact. One of my regrets that time was that I did not have a lot of pictures of what I looked like before I started the journey. I am not big on selfies and such so I never really have a lot of pictures of myself. One of the things that I did last time was I recorded a few video blogs so that I could compare and see the progress even in my face. It was always striking for me to see those changes. With that said, I am embedding the new video blog that I just did plus the oldest and the last from my previous weight loss journey. Enjoy and goodbye until next time!
