Stevenrayhoward's Journal, 02 September 2013

Here I sit... all fat and broken hearted... tried to diet but haven't started...

I guess I should not be too hard on myself (well, maybe a little bit)... I started this trek last June, 2012 - weighing in at 326... I achieved 262 by September... But, now I'm hanging around 277 and 280 (grumpf)... Yup, I've gained between 15 and 18 pounds (shifts from day to day).

Here is what I'm doing wrong:
1) NOT recording what goes into my mouth every day (not writing down or
entering into FatSecret what I'm eating)
2) NOT drinking 128 ounces of water a day (every day)
3) NOT following the diet plan I worked out

I KNOW if I do all three things above, the weight will come off (I proved it in going from 326 to 262).

So, Mr. Steve, why "AIN'T" I "gettin' 'er done?"
Tired... so tired...

And, so, the struggle continues... I need to find the motivation I seem to have lost..

Gotta go... must search for the big "M" (motivation)... I know it is around here somewhere... but where? I think it might be where all the lost socks are... or maybe I put it away someplace safe where it would dot get lost - but now, I forgot where that was... (sigh) Well, off I go to resume the search!


'or maybe I put it away someplace safe where it would not get lost - but now, I forgot where that was'. LOL, I suspect many of us are here a few times in our weight loss journey. Good luck in your search and congrats on your first large weight loss (to 262), congrats on returning to FS (always a good move) and finally congrats on buckling down and beginning your new weight loss journey (280 to 277) :-)

Hi Steve, The BIG "M" seems to be my downfall. I lack motivation. When I look in a mirror I don't know who that fat lady is that is looking back and at that moment I know I need to do something. I seem to get side tracked easily and I am so tired all the time. I quit smoking 2 years ago so I know I can lose weight too! Good Luck in your search for the big "M" and know you are not alone.

We need to pretend that we haven't gotten this far and are just starting our weight loss plan. We didn't eat out except at Mongolian grill. We weighed in together... We kind of accounted to each other what we ate, then after a while and some weight loss we stopped doing all of that because we thought we had it under control and we now know we don't. We need to go back to the beginning.
