I weighed in this morning at 239.0—down 11 pounds. More than half way there. I’ve been pretty much stuck at 240-241 the past week so this is a welcome move. 2 days ago

Well all the business travel over the past few weeks has not been kind to my waistline or this goal. I have put on 3 lbs. :( I do have a couple more trips planned but I plan on having better control over myself and what I eat in the future.
I am also thinking about joining Weight Watchers since we have an onsite group at work as well as a gym (which I should be using more often). I hoping this will help me regain the momentum that I seem to have lost. 1 week ago
Started using it on April 30, and since then I’ve gone from 248 to 242.4—so 5 1/2 pounds in about 11 days. That’s pretty good, and I really haven’t had a time where I slid back so far I couldn’t recover in a couple of days. Weekends still need to be watched, though—that’s when I tend to binge. 1 week ago
Well, too much of anything is bad and so is holding steady when I should be losing weight. It feels like my progress has come to a standstill and that can be discouraging. Of course, I know there may be valid reason like too much traveling, eating out (since I am out of town), etc. I have more travel coming up and need to figure out how to keep making progress on this goal and not just hold the line. 2 weeks ago
It’s great to have a resource that I can keep track of what I’m supposed to have eaten (ahem), and the spreadsheet does a pretty good job at that. Unfortunately, if I deviate from the plan, it becomes a mess. The spreadsheet only works because I know the foods I keep track of on it will result in weight loss… but if I switch it out with something unknown, I’m left looking up calories for the new foods. Makes it a lot more work than I had intended. So the solution isn’t to replace it, but to add something else to the mix.
I’m hoping I found it with Lose It! . It’s not perfect, but at least it makes it really easy to keep track of what I eat, which is what I really need right now.
We’ll see how it goes. 3 weeks ago
I’ve been putting this off for months now, but I have finally exercised for an hour on the elliptical trainer today. The weight loss journey is expected to be a slow one due to the low intensity workout, but it doesn’t matter – it’s better than nothing. 3 weeks ago
I’m back up to 247.4. Blech.
I can do this—I’ve done it in the past. I just need to put my mind to it. I know I can lose 4-5 pounds a week if I stick to my diet and keep up with exercising.
I think maybe the best way to approach this is to look at something where I’m successfully pursuing my goal and try to apply it here. I’ve been pretty successful paying down my debt by keeping close tabs on the money I spend. I keep a spreadsheet that tracks all the bills I have to pay on a monthly basis, and I tick them off the list as I pay them. That way I can keep track of how much extra money I can throw at my debts for every paycheck. I’m not perfect with it, but at least it helps me stick to my goal.
I’m hoping something similar will help here. I’ve set up a spreadsheet with the meals I plan to eat on a daily basis, and I hope that just having it to reference will help me stick to it. I’ve also got space for entering workouts so I can keep track of that, too.
Hopefully this will help. time will tell. 4 weeks ago
