I have failed to lose all the weight I intended to lose at my last attempt. So, I am going back to the drawing board. It has been an emotional journey to lose weight and manage all the losses I have experienced.
Not to mention several near-death events my wife has experienced in the past year. However, my wife is a strong-willed woman and will do anything for her family. With what she has endured, there is no doubt the good Lord has her around for a reason.
We spend a great deal going to and from the hospital every week for one reason or another. I know it’s very taxing on my wife’s body, mind, and spirit. I want to be there for her so much; I believe I forgot about myself. I have gained weight eating all the wrong things and letting my healthy way fall by the wayside.
I weighed in today at a WHOPPING 289LBS. Yes!!! That is insane! I own this gross failure to take care of myself. I cannot blame it on circumstances. I made the conscious decision to eat cookies, cakes, and a ton of fried chicken. I was often eating one meal or stress eating to a degree where I could not move.
From the picture on the left, you can see that I have regained my weight back. It’s ok because I am down but not out. But, you know, I need to make some adjustments for lasting results.
I have to admit that a lot is going on in the mental realm that requires assessment and adjusting. Today is day one of my new beginning. I will log the good, bad, and ugly: no fluff here, only some good honest truth.
The Second Day Back On The Treadmill
I did not want to get on the treadmill today. I came home. I was tired and hungry. The first thing I did when I got home was change into workout clothes. Then I ate dinner and waited fifteen minutes and started walking slowly on the treadmill and gradually increased the speed.
Final steps = 7,054.
Final Distance 2.21 miles.
