A Fat Man's Journey (Working my way back…)

An Attempt to Journey from Fat to Fit in a Lifetime. Eat right, Eat less, Move more

It Wasn’t Hard Today



So back to work on a dreary Monday and I was able to stay focused on work while staying focused on The Plan with a very light breakfast and lunch and a medium dinner. I feel good.

The weight is starting to move. The body is starting to yell at me to feed it more.   To be expected from the spoiled child that is my body.

The secret is to stay focused on The Plan.

Seven pounds are gone. Forty-Three to go. Having succeeded in the past I know I will succeed now. Just really ticked at myself for allowing the weight to come back.

I walked six miles at the plant today. I spend most of the day on my feet. This helps of course. Avoiding the temptations of the Indian and Chinese Buffets near work is the hard part.

I am counting every calorie again. I am weighing myself every day again. This is what worked. I stopped. The weight came back. Lesson learned.

I will keep going at this because I know it is what I MUST do to get lean again and then stay there.

There is a devil on the shoulder: it is well meaning friends who tell you to allow “the occasional indulgence”. Said to often it sounds too tempting. Slowly the weight climbs back, the good practices are replaced by bad habits.

Back on the plan. The weight is moving and so am I. Eat Right, Eat Less, Move More.

  1. The occasional indulgence is my enemy, but we still haven’t come to terms yet.

  2. The buffet is truly the enemy. There lies this “I gotta get my money’s worth” mentality, which is so very dangerous to have at the buffet.

    Then there are the mind controllers that preside over America’s ad agencies. Their goal is not to appeal to the conscious mind. Rather, everything that is set up in an ad, whether for a magazine, television or radio; is designed to appeal to the subconscious mind. Having worked in an ad agency for five years, I can truthfully say that the people running the ad agencies are ruthless in their desire to control our thinking. If it wasn’t for the multi-million dollar ads, nobody in their right mind would really drink soda. When we slip and fall victim to overeating, it is important that we forgive ourselves.

    It is so good to see that you are writing for your blog once again. I believe that you have been and will continue to be, a great inspiration to many, many people.
