Damn! Damn! Damn!
Now that I’m done with my tantrum, let’s look on the bright side:
- As of this past Friday, I no longer take any medications that are notorious for causing weight gain.
- I just turned 45 yesterday. Granted, the older you get the more your metabolism slows down, however, it has me more concerned about my health. As of right now, other than my weight, I’m in excellent health. I want it to stay that way.
- I have tons of support from my friends and fellow bloggers around the world.
Rather than get upset about my weight going up a bit, I’m going to do what I call a do-over, meaning I’m resetting my goals and my tracking. Here, once again, I’m laying it all out there for all to see:
I’m 5’5″ tall and weigh 283 pounds. My long term goal is to lose 120 lbs. Because losing that much weight is a bit overwhelming, I make shorter mini goals to get there. My current mini goal is to lose 20 pounds. I will not weigh myself more than once a week. Many of you have told me that I shouldn’t worry about the scale, but that’s not the way my brain thinks. I need specific, verifiable goals to work towards.
Here are my current pictures:
As for being honest, I had breakfast at McDonald’s this morning and damn were those breakfast burritos tasty.
