Climbing Towards The 3s Weight Update

A 1.8 pound loss this week!  I see this is going to be a crawl to the finish line. I’m honestly surprised that I lost anything this week.  I haven’t been tracking on Myfitnesspal and I recently realized my morning white hot chocolate had way more calories than I thought.  I know my initial goal is to eat less carbs but eating at a calorie deficit is extremely important in my personal journey.

How did you do this week?

Dismal Weigh-in Day

Dismal Weigh-in Day

Uh! I guess a grunt would be the best summation of this day. I weighed in at . .

Uh! Another odd week of gaining.  Its not much but 406.6 was not where I wanted to be. My goal was to be in the 300s even if it was 399.

I can see the finish line.  I think I am just afraid to cross it. All week I’ve been eating crap I should not eat. Its been a bite here bite there but wrong nonetheless.

I’m trying not to be hard on myself but the tomorrow is a new day mantra isn’t working for me. I need to focus. I am better than ny current self and I know it.
I’m not one for excuses so I’m just going to go in focused and not look back. I’m sure I can adjust. I just need to want it like I did a few weeks ago. I was inspired before.  I saw others losing weight and I saw it in myself.  Now I’m not seeing it and it feels unattainable. Sometimes you have to remind yourself that people do this every single day and they are not half of me.

How do you stay motivated,  especially after a gain?

Wake The Fuck Up

Wake The Fuck Up

“All I ever hear is beepity bop beepity bop, y’all can’t think for yourselves because you always listening to that bullshit!” These were the words of my grandmother any time the radio would come on. In her own way she was warning us that we would become mindless drones to thoughts of people who know nothing of our struggles. She was right. I would never have admitted that as a child but as an adult, I can concede to her teachings. Like my grandmother, I feel sorry for the next generation of children. They will be mindless due to the excessive amounts of false information being introduced to them through various media outlets. If the misinformation does not drive them crazy, they will find that they are being led astray by politicians who will say or do anything to get people to vote against their own interests.

Media of today is nothing like the media of yesteryear.  When you turned on the news you expected to get unbiased reporting of the day’s most interesting happenings. Now, you are sure to hear the reporter delivering news laden with their opinions or words that heighten fear and distrust in your fellow man. Keywords regarding race are used to stir a fire in the belly of racists and ignite fear in the bellies of the disenfranchised. Using these types of antics will create a never ending news reel. This is great for the media outlets that prey on viewers for ratings but it will only attribute to the downfall of this generation.

Politicians have learned the value of misinformation and a solid delivery. During the Perry/Obama election, Rick Perry would spout off lies and useless information to shock both President Obama and the viewers. Those who were well informed were puzzled as to how someone running for the office of president could be so ignorant. Those who were not so informed were in awe of how quick and intelligent Rick Perry was as opposed to President Obama. Unfortunately, this particular method of debate has spilled over into daily conversations with politicians. The name of this debate method is Gish Gallop. You simply yell out the most absurd and inane information you can and watch as your opponent tries to make sense of your foolishness. When you have no opponent and you are just talking to potential voters, these lines of truth and falsehood are blurred beyond repair.

My grandmother is probably rolling over in her grave hoping that the beepity bop beepity bop would return to muddle our brains and drown out the blatant misuse of information we are being fed today. The media and politicians work hand in hand in effort to create a more ignorant society of drones that have no ability to think for themselves. All we can do is hope and pray that one day we follow the teachings of Dap from School Daze and WAKE THE FUCK UP!

Weight Loss Update Aug 18th

Weight Loss Update Aug 18th

 

2012-03-05_12-10-45_258

 

Its time for another update.  As you can see, I received another weight loss blessing.
I am so close to breaking out of the 400 area that I think its making me nervous. I don’t know why I would be nervous.  I’m excited about never seeing that number ever again.  Nervousness is the only solution I can think of when it comes to how I’ve been eating.
After cheat week its always hard coming back but I know its necessary.  This time, I admit,  I am struggling.  I am definitely going back to adding snacks to keep myself full and focused. Its amazing what a difference a snack can make.
How are you doing this week?
