John’s Wellness Journey – Week 5

Week 5 and feeling great!!!!!   Last week I lost 5.5 lbs and this week I actually gained 1.6 back.  Can anybody say Frankenmuth?  Yep.  That’s where I went with the family for Mother’s Day.  I had the chicken dinner family style,  BUT…I ate in moderation.  I’m proud of myself, but I’ve noticed a problem.  It seems that if I take a day off from exercise, I gain 5 lbs back! Then, I board the struggle bus to get ahead again.  It’s really frustrating.  I can and will win the battle for weight loss and a healthier lifestyle!  I never used to be fat.  I was an exceptional athlete and always maintained my body through the hard work and exercise that came with playing sports. I never had to watch my weight because I was always active. I realize now that losing this weight will be hard, which is ironic since it was very easy to put on.  There is an old saying “The long way is the shortcut”. I’ll be happy with myself physically when I reach my goal weight. And even happier when I keep it off.  I will keep walking and working out.  I will keep focusing on one week at a time.

    I had a great workout last night and this morning and it paid off. I just can’t seem to want to stop. I know that if I take a day off that I will gain 5 lbs for sonme reason so, I plan to keep the metabolism burning. I’m not really worried at the 1.6 gained back because 2 hours earlier I weighed in at 322.6. It was a big cup of coffee but it didn’t seem to weigh 2 lbs. Either way I am ecstatic where I am at today. It is great to work for a company that has taken a personal interest in wellness and holding me accountable. Thank you SP for making it happen for me. I really appreciate it.
