I have to admit, this weekend wasn’t so great for my weight loss goals. While I did do a ton of walking (probably close to seven hours in three days now), I didn’t eat as health consciously as I know that I need to. I did, immediately upon coming home, juice myself some fruits, and eat a small variety of vegetables. I’m definitely trying to get back towards being focused.
The hardest part is that when I’m hungry, it is easy to make bad food choices, so I’m going to have to be more proactive about eating before I’m hungry so I eat the right things, rather than waiting until I’m hungry and having a burger and onion rings.
Seeing my cousin this weekend, who has dropped over one hundred pounds in the last year, definitely reminds me of how far of a journey I have, and why I’m trying to do better. The amount of energy he now has, and his ability to fit into clothes that better reflect the style and image he wants to portray are additional parts of why I so badly want to see the numbers on my scale drop.
I’m still confident that by Friday, I can reach my goal of dropping yet another pound. I would really like to be back in the 280’s by the first week of August and the 270’s in early October.
