Weigh-in, December 3: Back where we started

Not exactly, but close.  I'm up about 1/2 a pound after two months of trying to lose weight. Frustrating.

My goal for December is simple. If I get down to 183 pounds, I would be at the top of the "overweight" BMI category instead of the bottom of the "obese" category.  That's 3.2 pounds. Get out of this lousy category and stay out, that's all I want right now.

My bigger goal is to feel strong, capable, and proud, like I did last night when I was swimming.  I don't want to feel weak and ashamed anymore.

All I have to do is log my food, be reasonable about food and exercise, and get into a better headspace. I don't need to do anything drastic. I flirted, for a while, with rejoining Weight Watchers in time to see what this "new plan" is all about, but it looks like just a few tweaks to the same old plan that I couldn't stick with, so I am not going to bother.

  1. Why don't you try a 30 day paleo challenge? After I finished with mine, I got rid of that kind of weight in bloating alone. And overcoming the sugar cravings was nothing short of a miracle. Now I'm just testing which foods I can reintroduce to my body. Turns out I really do have sensitivities to a lot of the stuff I took out.

    It's not as low carb as people fear, although there is an adjustment period. 30 days goes by quicker than you think. It might be worth a shot.

    1. I don't think I have the willpower for such a drastic plan, but I admire people who do.

    2. No worries. There's a ton of options out there to reach your goals.

      It's funny you say that about your willpower because I always figured you have a bit more than me. I've always admired your sheer consistency of exercise and logging meals. Heh, but if you haven't guessed, organization is a skill I am still developing. :)
