This week’s weight: 307.8
Difference from last week: -0.6
This year’s change: +1.8
I realized something earlier today that depressed me just a bit: my weight has been pretty much steady all year. I started at 306, and am currently at a high 307. 2011 was supposed to be my year! This was supposed to be the year I buckled down, got serious and got my weight down to what it should be. Instead, we are three-and-a-half months into the year and I haven’t made any progress.
True, we went on a cruise. And I put on a fair amount of weight. I don’t mind the weight I gained on the cruise, because the vacation itself was more than worth it. But if I had been more consistent with my weight loss before the cruise, I wouldn’t have so much to catch back up on now that the cruise is done.
I’ve been watching The Biggest Loser lately (my wife got me addicted to it). I am torn between being inspired and being jealous. Some of the guys on there started much heavier than I did, but they now weigh a lot less than I do. I know this is because of the circumstances. The show is set up so that people lose an extraordinary amount of weight in an unrealistic amount of time. But still, they rocked through a hundred pounds like it was nothing. That is what I want!
In other words, I think I am just down and discouraged this week. Just ignore me, I promise I’ll be less crestallen in my next entry.
