Don't Focus on the Goal...

If you've followed this blog you know that I've struggled for many years with improving my health. I've finally reached a point where I've managed to maintain a small amount of success. Now it's time to take the next step, but I believe it requires a new way of thinking.

Instead of trying to get healthy, why not shift focus toward learning how to build healthy habits instead. Follow me as I try to teach myself how to Engineer healthy habits that will allow me to take my health to the next level. Let's see where this experiment goes!

Weigh-in #8 - 1/2/10

I hope everyone had a great New Year!

Starting Weight: 297 lbs
Last Weigh-in: 287.5 lbs
Current Weight: 292.5 lbs
Weekly Loss (Gain): (5)lbs
Total Weight Loss: 4.5 lbs

This one is a couple days late as I've been experiencing PC issues.  Not a good week at all though I suspect much of the gain is not real.  I've been on vacation for the last week and I tend to retain water when I'm not on my normal routine.  We'll find out next week.  Again I am back into the 290's, this is extremely frustrating for me.  Although I started this blog only recently, I've actually been losing weight all year.  I started 2009 at 320.  You would think that breaking under 300 would be a significant hurdle, but not for me.  In the first 5 months I dropped 30 pounds and got to 290.  The next 7 months have been spent working to get below 290 only to bounce back up above 290.  Over the remainder of the year I have gotten into the 280's nine times only to return above 290 shortly after.  It's really starting to annoy me!

Anyway, this week starts a brand new year.  I'm excited to get going and drop the weight.  Last year I lost 30 pounds so this year I want to do the same.  Good luck to everyone else out there who's trying to drop some weight.

  1. Glad you're back, hope you had a marvelous holiday. I've begun to work on my 2010 goals (weight losing being #1 on the list). I've joined a writer's lbs off group with similar goals . . . the link is on my cooking blog if you'd like to check it out.
