Hello Weight Losing Fans...
Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 212.4-Pounds.
I am happy to report that. The other day when I went to that Chinese Buffet I figured that I would be doomed. Seriously, I had been gaining and gaining. I was thinking I am not doing so well here.
I am trying to lose weight. I have to follow a steady pattern keeping my calories around 1,500-2,000-calories. Yes, I do sometimes exceed 1,500-calories. Yet, sometimes I come in under 1,500-calories. Over the week it then averages out.
Now, is it easy to do? NOPE... It's so tempting to eat all the extra food. I am a big fan of snicker bars. I also still have my sweet tooth. Wouldn't you think that after trying to lose weight for so many years I would have conquered my sweet tooth? I would have. Nope, it's there, and when I see a Snickers bar, or some other goody, then I satisfy it.
Here is the difference though. I don't feel guilty when I do eat something sweet. I just modify my diet for the rest of the day.
I am keenly aware of what it is I eat. And, it's a pain in the butt.
I do regret that I regained all this weight because it's like human torture trying to lose the weight again. I could have maintained. But, my mom died four years ago, and I got very depressed. I was deeply cut when she died. It was all that I could do just to get up in the morning. It's only by the grace of God I was able to.
I am working on something that may be helping me lose weight. I don't want to share it now because I want to see if it's what's actually helping my metabolism.
That's all for now...
And that's the way it is... I'm David Dane
