Week Thirty-Seven Low Carb - Thursday Check-In (Month Nine)

Week Thirty-Seven Weigh-In:
06/16/2016:          + 2 pounds
Total lost:                35.8 pounds
Current Weight:     194.2 pounds

This two pound gain is fully and completely my own fault. I accept that and I take responsibility for it, but, outside of that, I am also doing something concrete about it.

As I wrote earlier this week I am doing the 30-days of no cheating again (today is day 2). I don't see another way to get this under control and it desperately needs to be back under control!

I feel like I've wasted 10 weeks of the scale going up and down when, if I had focused and done what I should have, I could have been a good 6-8 pounds lower by now. But it is what it is and I've done what I've done. There's no way to go back, all I can do is suck it up and move forward.

Now is the time to do that.

This coming week my plan is simple. Continue working out (preferably more often), track everything and stay within my calories and macros. That's it. It sounds so simple when you write it out but actually doing it is harder, especially because my body has gotten so used to cheat foods every Thursday (and an occasional Friday as well).

I also feel like I still have time to hit my goal of a 40 pound loss by the time we visit Sarah in mid-July so now I have 4 weeks to drop 4.2 pounds. It seems doable and that's what I'm working toward because it's good to have a goal.

That's all I have for now.
