The holidays are over and all my excuses are used up so it's time to get off my ass and reverse the trend. I had fallen off the maintain wagon a few months back, but surprising I have been maintaining my weight almost the entire time. It started with forgetting to track every thing I ate, followed by larger portions at meals, followed by more and more "cheat days" and then the holidays. It started with one cookie here and a chocolate treat there, till I was in all out binge at every chance I got using the excuse "its the holidays"over and over.
To be honest I was really afraid of stepping on the scale for fear of what I would see. When I finally got the guts to do it, I was shocked it wasn't worse than it turned out to be. I was only three pounds away from getting back into my acceptable 10 pound range. Now, the goal isn't to just lose those 3 pounds, its to get back to my goal weight and then some. My goal is 170 pounds which means I am working towards a 13 pound loss. My plan moving forwards is to decide on what my caloric intake should be, track everything I stuff my face with and stick to my workout routine. So look for the return of Wednesday Weigh In as soon as next week!
