Progress Report

It has been awhile since I’ve discussed the nitty gritty details of my struggle with my weight. So I thought, Hells bells. It’s Monday. Why not talk about something totally depressing? So here we go!

On February 27th I signed up for MyFitnessPal. I think I posted about it, but I’m too lazy to go back and find the post. So you’ll just have to take my word for it. My starting weight was 220. I puke a little when I think of that number. Hell, I puke a little when I see my nekkid body in front of the mirror each morning as I get into the shower.

When I signed up for MyFitnessPal I swore to myself that I was going to be completely forthcoming and list everything that I ate! Regardless of how it would look if anyone saw it. I’ve kept that promise to myself and sometimes cringe when I look back over a day. Especially if it’s on a weekend. I’m not so good on weekends. There have been some days when I’ve gotten a little busy and haven’t logged my intake and activities, but for the most part, I’ve been very consistent about logging everything.

The thing that I love about this is that I can see where I need to make improvements, where I am perhaps going a little overboard. I’m a visual person, so the reports help.

Check it out:

7.6 pounds total. Started at 220. Last weigh in (Friday morning) 212.4.

It's obvious that I am skipping WAY to many days with the workouts! I need to improve that considerably.

I do pretty good to keep within a reasonable calorie range. You can see one day where it dipped into the negative. Well, that's because I logged my exercise at the end of the day, but didn't log any food. One of those busy days.For the most part...doing OK with the eating thing.

This past week I didn’t workout at all! Well…maybe I did on the Monday. It was Monday night that Ellie began limping, so I think I did get my workout in on Monday. Other than that….last week was a bust! I don’t think I logged into MyFitnessPal all last week, either except for Friday. Rough week. But keeping on track. Even though that track is obviously the slow train to…somewhere!

I’m trying to focus on the positive aspects and see that I am going in the right direction. I’m trying to NOT focus on the fact that the process is so incredibly slow. I’m trying to focus on the fact that I am wearing my belt two notches lower. TWO! That’s right! I really am trying hard to remain positive and look at the progress that I am making. It isn’t always easy because I am notoriously hard on myself!

It’s a new week, with a new focus on being more consistent with my workouts. Someone needs to kick me in the ass, please! Maybe one day I’ll be brave enough to post updated fat pictures.
