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 #23 - Eating Well Despite Mental Struggles

I can't remember ever being in this type of situation... I'm eating well, but just can't seem to get excited about being healthy.  Today I stuck to my eating plan, drank my gallon of water, and even walked my 2 miles at the mall.  You would think that all would be right in my world, but it's not.  For some reason I'm doing what I need to do, but I'm not "feeling it".

Yesterday I made it through the entire day without problems... only to eat a bowl of cereal at 9PM.  Same tonight, I've made it all day long, but I already know I'm going to have a couple drinks and relax to a good movie. 

Maybe this is good enough for now.  You know, hang on until I feel better.  It could still be the quitting smoking thing, but I'm starting to feel like that excuse is getting old.  I don't know, I guess I just have fight through it... I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually.  For now, I'm just going to do the best I can.

On to Day #24.

Stay Strong! 


  1. You know what? To keep doing your thing and working towards your great goal even when you are not feeling it, when you know that you are not perfect and when you are not feeæing great - that is GREAT! That is what makes me believe that you are going to be able to keep this up all year and the years after. Because you are doing it like it is just everyday life - not a new and exciting project that will soon fade away.

  2. I would say 'fake it until you make it', but also caution that the cereal and alcohol turn into pure glucose in your body, which alters brain chemistry and causes cravings and appetite stimulation, that make it hard to emotionally want to get healthy and be healthy. Just another viewpoint. ;)
