Extended holiday – doing myself no favors

This probably goes without saying, but I haven’t been doing very well lately. The exact opposite, actually. I’ve completely regressed to my old habits. And I can’t believe that I’ve let myself do this again!

It all started with the holidays. As I stated in my last real entry, I was shocked that I hadn’t gained more weight over the holiday season. I foolishly thought that meant that I had survived the holidays. Instead, what it did was gave me an excuse to use to continue eating poorly and not exercising.

I haven’t stepped on a scale in a long, long time. Because I know that the results cannot be good. I’ve been over-eating, mainly with very sweet, high-calorie foods. I’ve been avoiding exercise like the plague: since November, I’ve maybe exercised for 30 minutes or more 5 times. That definitely isn’t good. If I had to guess, I’d say that I’m back up to 330. 🙁

But, also following along with my patterns, I am starting to reign things in. And so I’m back here, confessing my transgressions, and making vows to be better in the future. And, also in my pattern, there was a stimulus to make me want to turn things around.

This time, it was at work. We were having a team meeting in the new conference room. From where I was sitting, I could see a reflection of myself in a window. And through the whole team meeting, I kept glancing at myself and thinking, my god, I’m disgusting. I look like a hippo. That’s when I made the decision to get back in the swing of losing weight.

So here I am, once again! I hope everyone else is having a better time of it than me. 🙂

    Just jump on the scales and find the real damage done. This is the time of year that most people are giving up on those new years resolutions, it is good that you can start to focus on fitness again. What is done is done, 330 is big for you (unless you 6’9 and have 10% body fat) and you know it. Summer will be here before long, there is no reason you could not get under 300 by then if you get back on track. Imagine all the fun you will have playing with the youngins if you get fitter. You can do this and you must do this.

    Just give me a shout out if you need any support, if you don’t get working I am going to weigh less then you soon – I am down to 349 this week.
