Not Easy

Welcome to another weigh in post! Today is March 10th and I have some good news to report. I have to be honest. I was very tempted to have a late night snack last night. That is not a good thing before a weigh in the next morning. Instead, I turned off the lights and went to bed. Losing weight is not easy but it feels good to do the right thing.

I nearly lost 4 pounds (3.8) since my prior weigh in which was March 5th. My current weight is 376.2 pounds. This puts my total weight loss at more than 5 pounds (5.6) and my total weight loss from my heaviest weigh in at exactly 7 pounds.

I have been very good about following my calorie budget. This is a lifestyle change for sure. It cannot be something that you do for a little while and then go back to your old habits. A friend of mine mentioned his uncle having successfully dropped a lot of weight and then gaining it back but then losing it again. In a way, that is kind of what happened to me. Although I never reached my target weight the first time, I did drop close to 100 pounds only to gain it back again plus some. This time needs to be different. This time will be different. I am done with this!

I am excited to see more progress at my next weigh in which will be March 15th. I love the energy that I am getting back already. I mentioned before that I have a little more spring in my step and in addition, I think my attitude is better. I think that sometimes in life we feel that we are not steering the ship so to speak. That we are kind of just along for the ride. Friends, weight is something that we can exert our control over. It does take discipline and restraint, but the rewards are going to be so worth it! Goodbye for now!
