So it has been a long time since I have been on here to up date my blog. Some of you may have wondered whether I have quit my healthy life style endeavor. The answer is no. I am still very active, and enjoying my healthy lifestyle. That means that I have a lot of weigh ins that I have video taped to be posted, but I am going to try and think of a way to just make one big video and post that, this way you can see the weight loss.
You are probably wondering... well... how much have you lost now???
I have now lost a total of 277.2, so now I weigh a total of 312.8. I will upload my latest video as soon as I can, and then work on the big video of the weigh ins.
Now that that is out of the way, there has been so much that has happened since we have last talked.
First of all, and probably the biggest thing is, my wife is no longer going to weight watchers as a member... I know I know, what!!! how could that be!!!.
Well before you have a Myocardial Infarction, I just want you to know that she is pregnant, and you cant be a member of weight watchers while you are pregnant. Not to worry she fully intends on rejoining weight watchers as soon as the baby is born, which will be next month on July 20Th. We are both really excited to have our daughter come and be a part of our lives.
Okay now that that is out of the way, on to other things.
Well I have now been following the weight watchers program for over a year now. I can't believe that it has been that long. It seems like just yesterday that I joined, tipping the scale at 590lbs.
Healthy living continues to be a mental process every day. Some easier than others, but the mental is always there. Someone once asked me, "whats the secret?". Well I don't know that there is just one secret but I said, "for me, I had to wrap my mind around this. Deciding that it was going to be difficult, but there were no excuses big enough, and there still aren't. This is something that anyone can do, it is just a matter of deciding that you are going to do it."
I used to be the biggest excuse giver out there. Here are some examples of excuses that I used to say to my self, when I wanted to self sabotage.
I had a hard day today, I deserve this.
It's my birthday, I deserve to eat whatever I want.
It's the weekend, I can get back on on Monday.
It's any ones birthday, I can eat to celebrate with them, I don't want to seem weird.
My family is getting together...
I'm going on Vacation...
It's a holiday...
My favorite spots game is on...
You get the idea, well I have learned that there is always a reason not to make healthy choices. The thing is, is for all of these occasions, I can enjoy food. I just don't go overboard. What I mean by that is, I can have those foods that I crave, but I just have one serving of them, or find healthier substitutes for those good foods. This has helped me immensely go through this journey. All of the sudden the excuses are not valid.
Okay well I guess you probably get the point :).
There is still so much to share, but I am going to space it out and put them in other posts. So I promise it will not be a month before I post again. So I say until next time, blog friends.
P.S. Is there something that you want to know from me? Please feel free to ask and I will include it in a post.
