Well, it’s been the never ending battle with me… weight loss, then weight gain, then more weight loss.
I have a weakness. I like FOOD! Sucks, huh? Even while eating healthful foods, I’m managing to gain weight. Today I weighed 31 lbs more than I did on 10 July of 2011. And yes, I feel it. Granted, I don’t look to bad (yet) because a goodly portion of that weight gain has been muscle mass from my past years’ worth of walking/bike riding. I had lost a lot of weight rapidly back in ’10; much of it muscle. I have my arms and legs back now. My pants are only slight tighter now. The doc tells me this is OK. It means I’m gaining weight in the right places.
And true as that may be, I’m still putting on the fat. I have my spare tire back around the middle again. I have been falling off the healthful eating wagon more often lately, also. I don’t like this. So, as of today, I’m going to revitalize my diet. I’m going back to my stricter caloric/carbohydrate ration of 1200-1500 calories and less than 50 grams of carbs a day. If I continue to exercise as I have been and maintain this intake, I’ll drop down to at lease 210 lbs from my current 235 lbs by the end of September. That’s what I’m shooting for, anyway.
Wish me luck!
I’m off to ride my bike for about 15 miles now.
