I hereby recommit

I hereby recommit to the tenets of healthy living and my surgery. I confess that I’ve been over-confident and over-comfortable with my weight loss thus far, and it’s showing: I’ve gained two pounds this week.

Fluctuations are normal, I know. But this isn’t about that kind of normal water-weight thing: this is the result of carbs, late-night eating, and poor food choices. When I eat carbs, I feel like shit but I do it anyway.

Today I start over. I commit to the following:

  • Protein first, each and every time I eat. Minimum of 60g per day.
  • 64 oz of water daily… not sugar-free this or that, but WATER.
  • The goal is 1000-1200 calories per day. No more.
  • If protein is first, nutritionally dense foods are second. If a food doesn’t have some kind of vitamin, mineral, amino acid, or essential fat that I need, I choose not to eat it. Goodbye worthless bread and processed nothingness.
  • Keep doing 5 days of exercise per week, no matter what.

Surgery does nothing to solve these problems. What surgery does do is make me afraid to eat sugar, and unable to binge eat. It does NOT exercise for me or make positive food choices for me. I am responsible for that myself.

I weigh 211 pounds. This is not acceptable. This is not where I want to be.

Moving on…

  1. I completely understand… I’ve realized over the last week or so that I must have been getting a lot more calories in than I thought. Even with the smaller portions – you can make good choices and bad choices… and 6 meals of bad choices make for a LOT of calories!

  2. I hear ya! I have committed myself to the working out now and have also discovered honey wheal braided twists pretzels. Okay, they do hold a tiny bit of protein but I’m addicted to them at the moment and just need to stop!
