I have been so inconsistent so far with updating my weight loss journey. I apologize for that. I have not been looking forward to updating because I knew that my numbers were not good. Finding the time to blog about it lately has been a challenge. Not to mention, it has not been good news and that always adds another level of reluctance to making time to blog. I need to get focused though so here goes the bad news.

I don't believe in making excuses, but I have tweaked my knee really bad. It hurts even when in bed and rolling over. I am probably going to have to get it looked at if it does not improve. I don't know if I tore the meniscus or one of the knee ligaments or what the deal is. All I know is even walking hurts pretty bad. So, add to that the fact that I am substantially overweight and it doesn't help the situation.

My last weight loss blog was on the 15th of May. I did weigh in on May 20th at 354.4 pounds. That was a gain of 1.6 pounds. I had not weighed again until today. Admittedly, today's weigh in was in the evening. Typically I weigh in the morning and that number will usually be lower than if you were to weigh later in the day. Ha! Another excuse after I said I do not like making them. Today I weighed in at 357.2 pounds. That means that I have only lost 0.8 pound since my reset of the weight loss journey on April 30th.

It probably goes without saying that I am pretty down on myself as well as feeling sorry for myself. It is twice as hard to get motivated when moving hurts so much. Still, I need to focus on the one thing that I can do for sure. That is watching what I eat. If I can drop some weight, it is only going to help with the knee issue. These knees were never meant to support so much weight so anything I can drop is going to help.

I have really struggled with motivation lately. Like some people, the temptation is there to just stop trying and turn to eating as an emotional coping mechanism. Talk about self defeating!

I am going to try my best to pull myself out of this rut and get back on track. I know that I can do it even with this bum knee. It is just math. Consumer fewer calories than you burn and you will lose weight. Easy right? I will do better! I must do better! Check back soon!
