It’s an hour to midnight and I’ve got to get to bed (have to wake the missus up at 4am so she can go to work). I’ve been reading other peoples blogs and postings on other networks and I wonder why that this time around I am finding it so much easier to stick to my guns. I’ve tried doing Quick Weight Loss Centers thing with my wife and hated it. I’ve tried doing Weight Watchers with my wife and lost 20 pounds but hated it and gained it all back. Now I’m not following any diet at all.
For once I am feeling satisfied after eating. All those other times I ate more fiber but not as much as I am now. Before, I probably ate about 8 to 10 grams tops, But now I’m averaging about 25 to 35 grams. Before I might have one piece of fruit a week, but now I eat at least 2 servings a day. My intake of vegetables have been decent in the past but not I try to eat a wider variety that just green beans and broccoli.
These past two days have seen me attempt exercising and I plan on adding more and more. There’s always 30 minutes in the day that I can do something!
The biggest factor has been motivation. There are several factors… the same ones as before but now there is a couple of new ones. One is I’m a dad to a 4 year old. That opens a whole new bag of “I want to grow old to see this and thats”. The other factor is you, the reader, lurker, comment makers and friends. I feel more motivated because I have made myself accountable by throwing this out there in public view. I don’t want to disappoint anyone.
I’m at 232 right now. My heaviest was 248 but I started at 245. I’m going all the way to 160 to 170 if I can! Come along for the ride! I wont disappoint……. Not this time!
