March 12th, 2015 My Goal

March 12th, 2015 My Goal

It was a fairly busy day. I took a rest day from working out, yet FitBit gave me a calorie adjustment of 272 based on measured activity. FitBit agrees, it was an active day!

I helped a friend pack a few things tonight for their upcoming move. I'm not necessarily saying that was 272 calories worth of activity, but apparently it must have helped. I really didn't do much.

This week has been wonderful. The lab results on Monday, yesterday's weigh-in and today, my new smaller jeans feel a little loose.

I don't have a number goal. It isn't 230, although in consideration of my epic relapse/regain, I will certainly celebrate when I return to that weight. I would imagine my transition into maintenance mode will begin at some point between 220 and 230.

Instead of a number, my goal is to keep it steady in all aspects of my recovery. My goal is to maintain my abstinence from sugar. My goal is to continue being active in seeking and offering support. My goal is to continue to exercise regularly and eat well. My goal is to write more. My goal is to continue taking good care of me, physically, mentally and emotionally. I have a number of professional and personal goals. Those are the ones getting my attention instead of a number. Those are the goals that matter.

I don't want to proclaim "I did it!" I want to say with confidence, "I'm doing it, every day."


Throwback Thursday takes us all the way back to six years ago. This is the very first video of me on the internet. Chasing the ball in the racquetball court was one of my preferred workouts when I started losing weight. I lost a bunch of weight chasing that little ball. I don't necessarily like the title I assigned this video six years ago. Instead of "Fat guy in racquetball court," it should have been "Determined guy in racquetball court." I was determined. I still am.

  1. Sean not that anyone was keeping score in the racquetball court 6 years ago but... it was a match between a determine person and a "Fat Guy". There was one winner and he still around!

    Reading your post, what a great way to start my day :)

  2. Don't like the name of the YouTube video ...... Change it ..... Make it a positive name ... Get rid of all negativity ... You don't need to be putting yourself down like that ... That is a old coping mechanism it's not needed anymore

    1. I don't like it either. Can I change it? I'll look. It was six years ago when I applied that title. It was very negative and I totally agree, it's not needed at all, anymore, ever.

  4. I am learning from you again. When ordering something when out, if it turns out "not good" don't eat it just because it is on the plate.... save those calories for something tasty when you get home! Your at home asparagus always looks so good. Do you grill it on your George Forman?

    1. Oh Nancy, yes indeed--- That asparagus was horrible...I think it was old. Tasted plastic and when I could get a bite to break clean, it chewed stringy..Yuck. No way was I spending another calorie on that dish!
      I do grill it on the foreman, most of the time. Soon, I'll grill it on an outdoor grill, again! The Foreman grill works perfectly!!

    1. Greta, it did get dark for a long time. It certainly takes a daily effort to continue winning. But it's so worth every ounce of effort! Thank you!

    1. Oh yeah--you know it, Rosie!!! :) I tear up, too. I can't watch transformation type shows without a box of tissues. Especially if I'm alone... my bottom lip will start to quiver--my eyes will water... I'm so happy for those people. Thank you so much, Rosie.
