About Fogdog's Weight Loss


Through failure we learn to succeed! This is a blog about fighting back. It's about picking yourself up off the floor, dusting yourself off, and getting right back in there. It's about holding yourself accountable, having the right mindset, and learning to live a healthy lifestyle.

I have failed more times than I can count. I've reached a point in my life where I've decided that giving up is no longer an option. I've decided to devote 360 days toward my health and well being in the hopes that I can turn my life around.

Join me as I take the journey and try to stay on the path. Learn from me through my successes and failures, and help me learn from you. As one blog I am weak, but as a community we are very strong. Let's Succeed Together!

Day #10 - Right back at it

If Day #9 was less than perfect then Day #10 made up for it!  For starters I woke up in a great mood despite staying up later than I wanted last night.  My eating was right on and I got all my water in.  I even managed to get 2 miles in at the mall; something I haven't done since last Thursday.  All of this and still no smoking.

It's amazing what a difference one day can make.  I'm definitely starting to feel much better from the healthy eating and the withdrawal effects from quitting smoking are almost gone.  It's interesting, most people haven't realized that I've quit yet.  In past attempts everyone knew it because I was pretty much a jerk, but this time I've gone out of my way to not let no smoking be an excuse to act like an ass.  So far no problem though I've had to bite my tongue a couple times.

To be honest, If I didn't lose a single pound in the first month but managed to stay quit on the smoking, then I would be happy.  The fact that I've already lost weight (though not a guarantee that it won't come back) while I'm quitting is just a bonus.  I keep telling myself to remember that it's the long haul that I care about, not just a few pounds this week or that.

Day #10 come and gone, bring on Day #11.

-Stay Strong!
