Weekly Weigh In

Current Weight: 255.2
Last Week: 257.2
Total Loss: -2 lbs

Who knows what the scale will say tomorrow, but this morning it liked me. It was the last day of my semester today and I celebrated with some alcohol and food. Not crazy overboard, but not in moderation either.

I'm so excited for the start of winter break. I can't wait to go to the gym tomorrow and start to feel my body grow stronger again. I bought new work out pants today in celebration of the end of the semester and I can't wait to break them in!

In the meantime, I'm cuddling with my dogs on the couch, recovering from a hard semester and even harder finals period. I'm so happy I'm done!

Current Weight: 257.2

To return after so much weight gain is hard. There's not much I know how to say about my weight right now. Along with my loss of control, I've also lost my words. They're related, of course. Without reflection and mindfulness, I lose control, and gain an excessive amount of weight. I am now heavier than I have ever been before, and I don't like how my body feels when I move.

I've been an emotional mess lately. Law school is challenging. What is more challenging for me, though, is not having a clue of what I want to do after law school. Without a dream to strive for, I've felt lost and have acted accordingly - lazing around without willpower and not trying.

So, I hope to make a new goal for myself - not career related. I would like to lose weight and become a healthier me - for my wife, for my future children, and for myself.

My goal: lose 1.5 pounds a week through exercise & eating healthy food (& unhealthy foods in moderation). This goal will need to really wait until next week (after I'm done with my last final), but I can make strides before then.

I haven't been posting because I've been struggling. Not just with weight loss, but with how I've been living my life. I've overbooked myself, which leaves me to be too busy (which I like) but also without time to make intentional choices regarding food, activities and internet use. I feel overwhelmed, but then spend my free time goofing off on Facebook.

I've been thinking a lot about priorities. I want to re-prioritize my life and move health up higher on the list.

This week's goal is to simply track everything I eat. I'm normally good at this until about 5:00 pm and I get home. But I tracked last night and all I want is a straight week of tracking. Let's get er done!
