More About This Blog

This year after so many other numerous new year resolutions of losing weight I am actually making a true leap to really get there. I have always been over weight. The last time I was any where near the weight I was supposed to be was 3rd grade. In my sophomore year of High School I weighed 232 lbs. In 2004 I weighed 287 lbs. Now I weigh 324 lbs. At my most I was 338 lbs.

I am going to use this blog as a way for me to track my ups and downs and find out what really works for me. I am not trying anyone type of diet, but rather searching through them all and pulling what I can use to stay healthy for the rest of my life. This isn't going to be a get thin in 6 month trip...the things I do have to last in the long-term or I will end up quitting and ending up right back where I started or worse off.

From Gobble to Great

Hey Hey,

Yesterday the dreaded gobble monster got me. What to do about the gobble monster is a challenge in and of itself. Do I feed the monster a little or quit cold turkey and risk the monster rearing up and attacking food like a ravaging beast? Questions, questions, questions??? On the bright know the silver wasn't good, but it could have been a whole lot worse that is for damn sure.

I still feel like I want to keep going and that continues to be a surprise. I can honestly admit that every year since my junior year of high school I have been telling myself that I was going to get healthy. Up until this time it had not stuck for more than a month or so baring that one episode of L.A. Weight Loss where I lasted 15 weeks. I could feel it wasn't going to work from the go on most of those tries.

I was great today except that slight case of nausea cause I didn't eat on time. :) I turned down cookies, Chinese food (love me some Chinese food), eating more when I knew I shouldn't.

Eureka...I think I figure it out...on days where my water intake is low like yesterday and Sunday...I eat, and eat, and eat, and eat...predominantly sugars and carbs like they are going out of style fast. On days like today where I drank a lot of water I can turn down food and eat healthy.

I am happy to announce that I actually did some exercise today. I did 25 minutes of Cardio Express Zumba then went out for a 30 minute walk around the block (approx 1.3 miles). Took me a long time to finally get going with the exercise.

Exercise related as I mentioned in a previous blog, I listen "Cutting the Fat Podcast" and they mentions a 30 Minutes for 30 Days Pledge...well tada...I am pledge...and for not other reason than that I want to...that come rain or shine, outside or in, feeling great or slightly under the weather...that I will walk for 30 Minutes for the Next 30 Days. So thanks to the co-creators of the blog for inspiring me to get myself moving.
