I forgot to post up here last week. I have been plugging away at the weight loss.
As I stated before, I am trying to retrain my body and eating habits. I first have to break 39 years of bad habits. The best way to do this is through consistency. I do revert here and there, but mostly I am eating a LOT better than ever before. The hardest part for me is at night. I have a horrible habit, which I attribute to most of my weight gain over the last 15 years, of getting up at night and eating. Usually these sessions are uncontrollable and I eat the worst things in the cabinet. Pop Tarts and such.
This is a night to night battle for me.
The last two nights though I won! Small steps.
I have not been to the gym much. I have had a lot going on at home and have not been sleeping well. I did have a training session last Saturday and have one tomorrow. SO I will be going to the gym tonight to at least try to prep for tomorrow.
The good news is that I am still losing. I weighed in today at 281.8 pounds. That is 10 pounds less than when I started about five weeks ago. About 2 pounds a week! This makes me feel good. I am looking forward to seeing myself in the 270s, something that I have not seen in some time.
I don't really feel any lighter, but I am far from light. Once into the 70s I will see some significant gain and then hopefully feel more energized to keep it going. And if I maintain the slow even pace, I will keep it going and not the the dreaded plateau.
