Quick Weight Loss Update

2:41 PM

Well, I went for my latest weigh in last week.....

Gained three pounds. Boy am I happy that it is just 3 pounds and not 10, but I still am not where I wanna be. It seems like weight loss is a cycle with me. I'll be very gung ho for about 2-3 weeks, and then lose momentum. During those weeks, I'll be eating and exercising like i'm supposed to. I'll see the results as I am doing what I'm supposed to. I guess then I get cocky. I stop tracking what I eat, I exercise less, I drink more alcohol, and I eat the wrong foods. As a result, I do not see the results on the scale that I want. Then, I get a wake up call and the cylce starts all over again. Does anyone go through this?

My question for those that do, is how do you deal with getting into a dieting rut? I have got to find some way to get past the three week mark. I know that I want to, but something in my brain just isn't clicking. I see people around me that can eat whatever they want and not gain a pound, and I want that to be me. No matter how much I want that, I know I'll always deal with this for the rest of my life. I don't know what to do to keep me on track. I guess I'll just keep trucking on, and accept the three pounds. I think that I am going to start setting mini goals for myself. Hopefully these mini goals will help. So for the first one....

Lose 10-15 pounds by April 8. Why April 8th?

That's the day I leave for vacation. There is also this certain article of clothing that I want to be able to wear on my vacation, and I know that I need to lose at least 15 more pounds to get into it. So today starts my journey. I vow to track what I eat, eat the right foods, limit alcohol, and exercise. This date is three weeks from today, so lets see how I do. I can do this!!!

I might have lost a battle, but I will win the war!!!

You can do it! I'm trying to lose weight myself, I want to be more toned. Have you tried working out with someone, like a chubby buddy, support goes a long way :)
