Craving Consistency

Sometimes trying to lose weight can feel like a roller coaster ride. There are ups and downs. That can apply to both one's emotional status as well as their weight loss. Sometimes I find myself craving consistency.

Since my previous weigh in on the first of December I have lost exactly one pound. My current weight is 351 pounds even. My total weight loss now stands at close to seven (6.8) pounds.

It is funny that I mention consistency because really, at the end of the day, I am the one being inconsistent. I am inconsistent with both the number of calories that I consume as well as the number of calories that I burn. I am the one that controls that! No one is forcing me to eat too much. No one is forcing me to stay inside the house instead of getting up, opening that front door, and going for a walk. That is me! I need to be more consistent. There are days that I do great and there are days that I do terrible. If I can reduce the number of terrible days and increase the number of great days then I will see improvement.

I am not disappointed in losing a pound. Every little bit counts. I just also know that I could be losing this weight faster. The beginning of a weight loss journey is the easiest weight to lose. At least that has been my experience. I am confident that I can do better.

I am enjoying blogging about the journey. Hopefully people enjoy reading about it. The  next weigh in will take place December 10th. I am optimistic that I can be more consistent and see some real progress. Check back soon! Until next time...
