So at the beginning of the year I started the Diet Coke is For Fat People Challenge.
After seven weeks or so it trailed off, never to be heard from again. Until now. What happened? I got busy and I got fatter. Lately, however, I’ve been a little more determined to lose weight and get into shape. A few things I’m doing differently:
Swimming at least once a day. About to up it to twice a day if I can find the time.
Eating breakfast. Usually toast and water, but something to get my body going.
I need to get back on the treadmill. In a few months it’ll be too cold to swim and I don’t want to lose a bunch of weight only to gain it right back in the winter.
I signed up for Gyminee. You can see my profile here. I tend to keep up with things if I have a nice organized way to keep track of it all.
I broke my goals down into smaller pieces. My ultimate goal is to lose 50 pounds. That’s a big and quite frankly discouraging number. So I broke it down. My first goal is to lose 18 pounds and arrive at the still-overweight 230. From there it will be 215 then 200.
I’m doing better about stopping the mouth machine when I’m full. I don’t have to clean my plate. I’ve also cut back to a maximum of one coke/sweet tea a day. Usually it’s none but if I’m eating out I’ll have something nice an sugary.
Drinking Diet Coke? Offended? I don’t really think it’s for fat people.
