Began diet weighing in at 303 pounds
Today’s weight 293
Total weight loss to date - 10 pounds
It is looking like the holidays are not going to be as easy as I was hoping. We are having Thanksgiving at our house and we bought most of what we needed. This included chocolates, cookies, and all kinds of tasty treats.
Something that was helpful last time was keeping the fattening and unhealthy foods out of the house. This is hard to do in the holiday season. I find that if yummy foods are in the house my self-control is about zero. If it is not in the house and I have to go buy it, chances are I will just let it go. I have also been working on trying to wait a minute or two before eating the treats. If I can see the desire and tell myself I do not need it, sometimes I can let it go. The same desire usually comes back, but each time you resist, the feelings will become lighter.
I have gained another pound, but I am still ten-pounds down after starting my diet two weeks ago. Now I just have to get through Thanksgiving with as little weight gain as possible and back to my program. Who knows, maybe I can lose a couple of pounds next week.
It is my hope these blog posts will be helpful, but they are only from my point of view and not professional advice. I am just a common guy who in 2004 lost over 90 pounds. I kept the weight off for five years and then the weight started coming back a few pounds each year. This time I am trying to lose 100 pounds, and share what I learned from my first diet as well as what I am learning now. Always consult a doctor before beginning any new program.
