Weekly Update - 11/08/2009

November 8, 2009 · 5 comments

  • Diet starting weight: 299
  • Week starting weight: 299
  • Today’s weight: 298
  • Week weight loss: 1 lbs
  • Total weight lost: 1 lbs

Well if I’m really going to do this I’ve got to get back to my Sunday updates, no matter how ugly they may be. I started my diet a couple of years ago at 295 and now this week I’ve hit my high of 299, so I’m truly starting over and then some. Sucks. But just the act of writing this update is giving me good past vibes and maybe I can learn from that and get going with this weight loss thing once again.

Things I did well this week:

  • Did 30 minutes of cardio on Monday and Tuesday until a blister caused me to stop for the week.
  • Ate no fast food in my car.
  • Wrote a Sunday update!

Things I did not so well this week:

  • Need to get back on the water kick.
  • Snuck too much halloween candy - good thing only one kid went out this year.
  • Bought 3 pounds of grapes yesterday. Today they are gone.

I was pretty happy about not eating fast food in the car. I got my car detailed last Friday and here it is over a week later and the only thing I have eaten while driving is a couple of protein bars. Definitely makes it easier to stay away from McDonald’s when you have a clean car.

As luck would have it I get a challenge to start the week because I’ll be on the road for business Monday night in a hotel, then at the end of the week I’ll be in Los Angeles for something health related that I’ll be writing more about. But the travel won’t make it easy to be good.

One day at a time.

One day at a time John. You can do this!

I keep telling myself that!

Baby steps. As you say, the act of writing will help breed success.

I’m going to keep telling myself that and believing it until something gives.

Boy, have I been there. Each time you restart, though, you improve. You know more now about your triggers and what you can do to avoid them then you did a year ago!

True, but that doesn’t mean it gets old. By now I know way more than I should need to know!

Congratulations on the restart. I’m starting myself. Looking forward to following your progress.

Good luck! I’ve subscribed to your feed so I can follow your progress as well.

I’ve done exactly the same thing. I am glad to see your post today. I find that if I am blogging everyday it keeps my goal in front of me. Let’s do this together.

Let’s DO IT!
