Week 2 - 267lbs

Sorry for this weeks post being 4 days late but between work and the slacking I did on my goals caused me to procrastinate as long as possible, however here it is.

While yes my weight stayed the same this week I didn't achieve my goal of eating within my calorie range.... actually maybe I did some days but since I didn't log my food, I have no idea if I did or did not. THAT was the biggest failure of last week, which has continued this week. I believe I’ve eaten better this week but again not logging food keeps that a mystery and the 2 bowls of dry fake applejacks last night while not healthy might or might not have pushed me over the calorie edge for the day.

So if I’m not going to food log whats the point, right? Well that’s how I felt and figured why blog about my failure yet again to stick to a plan but then a friend of mine reminded me that the blog was to help keep me honest. Its easy to blog the successes or the minor setbacks but when you have a crap 10 days and ignore it and treat it like if no one knows no one will care. Its like when you have that bite size snickers (or 2 or 3) and leave it off your food log and no one sees it…its like it didn’t happen right? But then when you weigh in and you haven’t lost anything you say…but I was perfect…that handful of pretzels or snickers or beer didn’t “really” count. Hell you probably forgot you even “sneaked” that in anyway come weigh in day.

Basically what I’m saying is YES I didn’t do a darn thing I said I would do in last weeks post…except I did blog about it so at least I didn’t totally hide from it. Maybe it’s a step in the right direction, maybe it’s a way to excuse myself. I guess we’ll find out next week and by next week I mean Tuesday, which is 4 days away. See you then….I hope.

  1. As Sir Winston Churchill said, "Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." And he was a very wise man :)

    So what, right? You get up and start over and you don't have to be perfect because there is no such thing as perfection, just keep trying.
