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 #118 - Turning a Corner

I've now had 3 nights in a row with "reasonable" amount of sleep.  I'm still waking up at night with knee pain but it doesn't hurt nearly as bad as it did before.  I'm completely off pain medication and I'm going to take it easy this weekend.  I think I've turned a corner and hopefully my knee problem will heal itself.

That's good because the last 2 weeks of April have been horrendous in terms of eating well.  I'm not making excuses, but when you feel exhausted all the time it becomes very easy to convince yourself that "it's okay" to eat unhealthy food.

This morning I went back into the dungeon to see just how bad these last two weeks have been.  If you remember, last week I refused to weigh because the Wii scale wouldn't take my weight.  I had similar thought today, but decided that I was just avoiding seeing how bad the results were. 

Ultimately things aren't quite as bad as I thought... Over the last 2 weeks I've gained about 5 pounds.  I can live with that; I have to live with it because the weight is there.

So now here I am, finally on the mend and taking a hard look at my options.  Assuming my knee continues to heal and I can get some sleep.  More to come tomorrow, until then...

Stay Strong!
