Slowly I turned...

In a week where I never found the gym, worked far more hours than I really care to and definitely played less guitar than I like, I was glad to see the scale this morning still heading in the right direction. Two-hundred-seventy (270) pounds.

Slowly but (hopefully) surely I'm losing...

Week Won...

I hit the scales this morning at a spry 272 pounds so I went in the right direction this week. But it wasn't according to plan. My fast lasted from sundown Sunday until lunch was hectic and I felt the need to eat to keep from getting grumpy. But at least I did hit the gym Monday afternoon. Some light weight work then 30 minutes on the elliptical followed by 20 minutes on the stair master. I could feel the fat just dropping off me. All I needed to do was to keep it up 3 or 4 days a week. But unfortunately, I came down with a nasty head cold late Monday evening and was in no shape to exercise the rest of the week. As of today I'm better and may try again tomorrow but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

I'm still not dieting. Yea, I'll eat oatmeal or a sugarless cereal for breakfast, but I get the hot lunch at work and eat a full dinner each night. The only thing I've been able to do has been to cut out the snacking. In the past I had an over reliance on exercise to offset my eating habits. I do need to make "lifestyle changes" and just eat less.

My goal is 210 by 7/31/2010. This week I'll try to stay on schedule.

Sunday Morning Coming Down...

274 this morning...but still a ways to go. I try to stay in today - I can't change yesterday and can only plan for tomorrow. So I'm off to church and then plan to meet my son at the gym for a workout.

I'll have to catch up blogging later (I'm behind after only a week!)
