There are consequences for going out partying the night before a weigh in. I don't want to rationalize, excuse, or explain. I am not particularly happy about this, so here come the numbers, followed shortly by what I plan to do about it:
Current Weight: 287.4 lbs
Starting Weight: 440.2 lbs
Weight Loss This Week: -2.4 lbs
Weight Loss in Year 2: -2.2 lbs
Weight Loss Total: 152.8 lbs
That won't work. I have gotten lazy about this. This week I made a choice to work on some good habits, and one of the habits I want to get back into is logging my calories again. Instant accountability is indispensable. To reinforce this I will be posting my calorie totals at the end of every day for the next two weeks, since that is how long I have heard it takes to build a habit. I will do this at night so that I will have an end point every day. Snacking and mindless eating have been problems, far more so than bad choices with my meals. I am eating mostly the right things at meals, but I am snacking on things that are too calorie dense. So goodbye to hummus, guacamole, and salsa. At least for a while. None of these are particularly bad, but they lead me to eat less than ideal things, like chips. I need to avoid those triggers for a while.
