08/25/2016: +1 pounds
Total lost: 32.8 pounds
Current Weight: 197.2 pounds
So, the scale is up by another pound.
Now, I can make all sorts of excuses for this: I was away for the weekend and wasn't able to track food, I just started a really tough new workout that's making my muscles retain water, I'm still messing around with getting used to more carbs.... etc, but the truth is that I ate crap. I ate a lot of crap and that's why I gained weight.
I'm not going to lie about this. I did what I did and it is what it is. I just need to find a way to reign it in. I absolutely refuse to hit 200 pounds again. Just refuse to!
I decided to think about what I could do to stop with all the crap eating and I came up with something I've talked about doing for a while but have never actually done. Track absolutely everything I eat. I know that if I have to write it down and track it then I won't eat it. It's really that simple. And to go along with that, if I don't buy it, I can't eat it.
So I'm going to do a 30 day challenge where I track everything I eat every day. No excuses. If I eat something unhealthy or a large portion or anything, I HAVE to write it down and be honest about it. I think that's really going to make a difference for me.
Between that and being at the gym now, I'm almost looking forward to seeing what the scale will show next week.
