I just studied my weight loss chart and I noticed, I haven’t made any significant progress since May.
In May I was 270 pounds and I’m around that right now.
I go up and down the same 3-4 pounds every month but I hover around 270. That’s 6 months of no significant progress. WOW! Maybe I need to do something different.
I think what I have to do is stay diligent on my calorie goal. Stop eating over my calories twice a week or more. I really gotta not eat out at all which is hard cause I like going out to eat with my mom and then of course out to eat with the girls once a week. Either that or really target what I am going to eat when I do go out. Eat salad with dressing on the side instead of Beyond Meat Burgers. Maybe a few less alcohol drinks. The Beyond Meat Burgers that I eat have 900 calories in it. The Impossible Whopper with cheese has like 650 calories. I ate two of those the other night. Also last Wednesday I ate a entire pizza when I went out with the girls to Cafe Eccell, then I came home and went to the grocery store and bought carrot cake and oatmeal cookies. I ate all that in one night.
I just have to stop it. This eating over my calories a couple days a week is putting me into maintenance mode at 270 pounds. If I wanted to stay 270 pounds, I would be pretty happy cause that would mean I could eat crazy twice a week. But I don’t want to stay 270 pounds.
This is all a learning experience and I’m glad I went back over this blog to see if I am making any progress. It’s a red flag for me that I am not making progress. I have some clothes I bought in a size smaller than I am now, so I really need to lose 20 pounds to fit into that stuff.
My goal is to be at 250 by December 30 so I seriously need to drop some pounds. I need to lose 5 pounds this month and keep it off. Theres only 10 days left in this month AND I’m going on vacation next week to visit family in Atlanta.
I’m going to try not to eat crazy on my vacation. I’m going to stay very mindful of what I put into my mouth. I know I might want to try a variety of food since I will be in Atlanta. I need to try not to eat cake/cookies/pies/milk shakes/cereal/fries. I am putting this in my head now so I can remember it. I have a goal. I need to work at it to achieve it.
I’m going to really focus this week and try to get down to 265 by this Sunday when I go to the airport. I don’t think it’s impossible.
I’ll weigh myself before I leave next Sunday.
