I Lost Just Over 8lbs In A Month On Over 3,000 Calories A Day

I weighed in this morning at just under 192lbs. Down from 200lbs at the start of the month.
I’ve decided against the low carb challenge in March. I’m burnt out. I’m happy with the weight I’m at now. I just want to be at ease with myself. I’ve been driving myself to the point of insanity thinking about weight loss. I don’t have a healthy relationship with anything. I always over-do shit and it’s because I’ve got a hole in my soul and a hole in my hole.
Setting goals is an amazing way to get shit done. I set myself the realistic goal of losing 5lbs in a month and I succeeded. I just need to maintain this loss now. When you’re obese you assume that by losing weight everything in your life will become like something out of a Weight Watchers or dating website advertisement. Nothing changes. Sure, shit gets easier. You feel better within yourself. It’s all very subtle and a little bit disappointing especially if you’re expecting a sea change in your life.
Gonna stick to the calorie counting regime..
I lost 8lbs in a month by just measuring my calories in MyfitnessPal. I find it easier to stick to just counting calories and keeping it simple.
I ate at McDonalds 34 times in one month. 34 fucking times.
I travelled through some of the most culturally vibrant parts of the Iberian peninsula and what did I do? I made McDonalds my fucking embassy because I’m an underclass cave dweller.
I went to McDonalds yesterday and had a Toffee Crisp McFlurry for dinner. It kinda ruined a good day up until that point.
I had to walk back from work tonight as my backpack is totally fucked. I ordered a new one today and I’m hoping to take it with me when I do Land’s End to John O’Groats this year.
I always see the positive shit through a negative light. I rarely take the time to stop and appreciate how far I’ve come. Instead I focus on what will happen if I fail.
It’s no way to live and think.
- I haven’t drank alcohol in 472 days.
- I’ve ran every day for the past 458 days.
- I’m close to delivering a project in work that I worked my ass off to put together and I’m proud of it.
- I’m at the lowest weight in my adult life.
- I know what I want to do with my life.
I’ve entered the Isle of Wight challenge and I’m going to be fundraising for Mind. I will be giving away copies of my book to donors again but I’ve only got about 10 copies left from my last order so they’ll be gone quickly.
I’ll post the link up here whenever I’ve setup the fundraising page online.
