July 28, 2009--223.5 Pounds

Food today: breakfast sandwich(260)--


For the record, my weight on Sunday was 222 after sweating at Sneaky Fest much of Saturday, and my weight Monday was 224. That was probably from eating too much at Sneaky Fest on Saturday.

I'm not a smoker and I don't drink much alcohol. We all know the health damage done by smoking and excessive drinking, so it's a no-brainer that a person would be doing a lot of good for their body by giving up smoking and/or heavy drinking. And yet for some reason, these people are often too weak to make the change. Don't they know to just say no. Or keep a journal to raise awareness. Or simply avoid the situations where drinking and smoking are greater temptations. Or start a blog.

It seems like habits like smoking and drinking should be ones a person could and should break, just as losing weight seems like such an achievable task. What's frustrating is that even after these last 3 years, I still continue to think that losing weight is a very achievable thing, and yet I continue to struggle. While the dietary equivalent of treading water is better than just giving up and going under, this inability to get closer to the goal is confounding.

I'll keep trying, going back to old plans that would work if properly followed and coming up with new plans that look good on paper. Treading water really is a lot better than going under so the last 3 years haven't been a failure. I just need to find a way to start moving closer to the shoreline.
