Entry 211: Holiday weight gain
Since I have lost 80 pounds I have gained 15 pounds of it back from this Holiday season.
I weighed in today and am now back to being 273 pounds. My total weight loss now is 65 pounds down. I have 35 more pounds to go until I will have lost 100.
I am sitting here right now with my will power in full effect. I want to munch on something but I decided to write my blog & drink some water instead. Today has been a good day. I drank a cup of warm water with a half of a lemon squeezed in first thing this morning. I then made myself a cup of green tea and had oatmeal for breakfast. Right now I am on my 8th cup of green tea and only am about half way through my water jug. I will have it finished by the time I go to bed. For lunch I made fresh guacamole again with some tortilla chips. I counted each chip as I ate them so I wouldn’t go over my limit. Once they are gone I will be staying away from any kind of chips. For my guacamole I take one avocado and mash it up with about 2 tablespoons of salsa. For dinner I had mushrooms and onions mixed in rice with a little bit of soy sauce. Weird I know but I had to use the mushrooms up. I have not snacked on anything else.
I have been keeping track of my calories today to a "T" on my phone. I am trying to keep my daily calorie intake to 1,200. Today I have had a total of 1,227 calories. I am proud of myself; I made Michael bacon & Macaroni and cheese and I did not take one single bite of anything. It was a great way to test my will power. The more I stay strong like that the better my will power will get. I feel I need to reset myself with this whole process. So far; so good.
As for exercise…I did not work out last night & I have not worked out today. I have no excuses besides the fact that I am being a big baby.
I liked my horoscope for today:
Pisces - Jan 02, 2013 - You took on a large challenge recently, thinking that it would change your life for the better. You didn't really have a choice - you had to take on the challenge, but you did so admirably and with great commitment. But now you are here in the face of reality, and it isn't as easy as you hoped it would be. You can't give up, because others are depending on you - and you also owe it to yourself to do your absolute best. You need to maintain the sense of hope that you had initially, and soon things will begin to become much brighter.
