Breakfast and such

Hello everyone. I know I have been away for a while. Don’t worry, I haven’t gone off the deep end or anything. My weight has actually been failry stable lately. I just haven’t had much time to write, well, anywhere actually. All of my blogs and journals (for a list, see the Links section in the sidebar) have been neglected over the last month or so. I’ll get back to posting at least weekly here soon.

I have been keeping my eye out for interesting nutrition/health/weight loss articles, which is how I stumbled on a great article giving suggestions to make healthier foods breakfast. I have to admit that eating breakfast has never been a problem for me. I adore breakfast. I am sure to eat it every day, and I sometimes have breakfast foods for lunch or dinner. However, I know that a lot of people don’t. Many of my friends never eat breakfast at all, because they figure all of the breakfast foods are too fatty, or too calorie packed. I figured that at least some of you Loyal Readers will have the same problem.

The article on About.com has some very good tips, IMHO, including my favorite: “f you normally use eggs to prepare an omelet, consider changing to egg whites or egg substitute. All of the fat (and cholesterol) in eggs are found in the yolk. Egg substitutes and egg whites are fat free.”

Weigh-in for June 4: Bad, bad, bad

Current weight: 292.5
Difference from last entry: +6
Difference from 2008 starting weight (290.5): +2

Yeah, this is bad. There’s no way for me to even try to hint that there’s good news here. This is bad, very bad. I’ve lost track of my goals, and that has made it easy for me to lose track of my habits. I am obviously eating way too much. And the bad thing is that I am not eating good things. Good as in tastes good. Obviously I am also not eating healthy stuff. Or at least not enough of those.

Like I mentioned in my last entry, I joined Weight Watchers again three weeks ago. And proceeded to gain 3.2 pounds in my second week. That was very impressive, in a bad way, considering I am walking anywhere from 40 to 65 minutes every workday. My exercise is up, but my calories are up even more. Way, way more.

I am trying to re-convince myself that I can do this. I can get back on track. I just need to pull myself out of this stupid-ass laziness that I’ve slipped in to. Losing weight is hard work. Learning new, healthy habits is hard work. But it is something I can do. I just need to stop being lazy.

My absence

Ayup, as you might have guessed, I’ve been having a damned hard time weight-wise, which is why I haven’t posted here in a few weeks. I will be writing more soon, but I just wanted to give the difficult part to say first: I am up to 292 pounds again. I was out of control again. I am having a really hard time again. And I don’t know why.

On the positive side, I have re-joined Weight Watchers. Yesterday was my second meeting back. It wasn’t a good one, but it was the kick in the ass I needed to get me moving in the right direction.

This sucks… but I am working my way out of these bad days.
