Day 11 and Weigh Day.

So I stepped on the scale and saw a 2 pound lost. I'm not particularly thrilled with the number, but at least it moved in the right direction. It's hard not to get frustrated, but I'm going to push through it and see what the next weigh in brings me.

Day 10.

Well, tomorrow is my weigh in and I'm very excited. I sure do hope it's in the 3-4 pound range. I got an excellent workout at the gym this morning. I did 65 minutes on the Adaptive Motion Trainer (AMT) and burned 1100 calories. That's not even the special part of the workout though - 30 minutes into my session, I start sprinting like a madwoman. I couldn't believe how fast I was actually working my arms and legs. It felt wonderful.

I've been pretty lazy with my blog. I should give some sort of background story on my struggle with obesity, but I'm not feeling ready to do that yet. Not here anyway. Maybe after tomorrow's weigh in I'll feel up to it.

Day 8 and 9.

Still right on track. Eating well and working out as I should be. I'm excited for my weigh in this week. I'm hoping for 3-4 pounds.

Other than that, I've been very busy, which is great because it keeps my mind off food! :)

1 week!

My calorie intake was just barely over 1200 today, and I'm very satisfied with myself. I managed a 50 minute workout at the gym today and burned 900 calories. Tomorrow I'm unable to get to the gym due to a dental appointment, but I'm planning on getting a run in.

Day 6.

I had to visit my eating buddy today, who happens to also be my mother. I did what I needed to do and left. I resisted grabbing the oh so tempting tortilla chips. I politely declined the BLT with avocado and extra bacon. Basically, I made it! And I feel all the more accomplished for it.

Tomorrow will be 1 week. Not to jinx myself or anything, but I havent ate well for an entire week in probably 2 months.

Day 5

It seems I really struggle with eating blindly when I first wake up. Today I had to consciously make the decision not to reach into the box of cereal and grab a handful. I like when I become aware of my bad eating habits and in turn avoid them.

It's Day 5. I'm getting ready to hit the gym, and I'm feeling good.

Day 4

Starting a diet is easy.
Starting a diet and losing weight is easy... at first.
Restarting a diet after losing weight due to regaining weight: difficult as hell!

Yep. This where I'm currently at: starting over. I have 100 pounds to lose, and it really is work in progress. I have to constantly remind myself to think before I eat. In essence, I need to reformat my mind. I hope being faithful to this journal will assist in accomplishing just that.

So Day 4. I'm now closer to Day 7 than I am to Day 1.

It's a good beginning.
