dclemens's Journal, 28 May 2012

A little over three weeks have passed since I last entered my weight here. I've been sliding--really for the past two months. Maybe a little bit longer. I stopped counting my calories on a daily basis. I stopped going to the gym and when I sent I stopped entering in my specific accomplishments. I canceled on my personal trainer a million times. I just slid backwards.

I gained a little bit of weight back in all of the sliding. I was surprised that I didn't gain more, honestly. My highest was 259 which was very scary since I did not want to enter the 260's again. I was starting to feel really bad about myself and starting to get really depressed and I didn't know how to get started again.

I thought back to how I started back in January and I remembered that I just did it. I just started. And so, on Friday (5/25) I just started again. It's harder this time. I was so happy and enthusiastic in January and the pounds came off relatively easy--of so it feels now looking back. This time I have to work to find the enthusiasm.

I am feeling better though and more energized. I've been to the gym twice since Friday and have counted my calories 2 days in a row. It's the small things, right?

I've decided to set more rigorous goals for myself. I'm going on vacation in 6 weeks. I'd like to lose 20 pounds by then. It's a bit of a stretch but stretching is good!

I'm also upping my minimum amount of times per week to go to the gym to 4. It think that will be doable since school is just about over. Once school is officially out I want to hit the gym between 5 and 6 times a week--maybe more. We'll see.

I think that I'm also going to make myself weigh-in here and jot down a few things everyday. Maybe that will help to keep me more accountable.

So, here's to stopping the slide and regaining my enthusiasm and continuing my quest to be healthy!
