OH weight loss... I love and hate the process of losing weight. I got so excited over some weight loss that I gained weight. 5 pounds to be exact! BOO! I am a little angry with myself right now. This is a pretty typical thing for me to do. I think that I lost some weight easy peasy so I can let my guard down. But unfortunately that is not the case right now. I need to be pretty vigilant. Not that I want my whole life to revolve around losing weight. On the other hand my life needs to revolve around it! I know there are a lot of people that think you can be seriously overweight and be healthy but I have yet to have a doctor or read a study that says that. To each their own but I do know for sure that this body I have created is not a healthy one. All the signs point to serious issues down the road. I have no stamina and my lungs hurt when I exert myself. I get tired after a few minutes of playing with the kids. A flight of stairs winds me. That is a clear indication that I am not healthy and need to change.
So with that in mind I am doings something illogical! I am going to stop counting my calories for the next month. My girlfriend and I are doing a no-sugar challenge. No sugar for a month! I am a sugar fiend. This next month should be interesting. I really want to do this though. However, I feel that if I am jonesing for sugar and counting calories I will go nuts. So no calorie counts until September 19th.
OH and I should add that I did lose some of that weight. I am currently only .4 pounds over what I had originally lost. SO my total weight loss is 8.4 pounds. I am a big winey baby I guess! Seeing the number go up on the scale sent me into a frenzy and I picked myself out of my cookie haze and recommitted!
