My War Against Weight – Episode 0

Share Button

diet1I’ve been a fatty my whole life.

Sure, there have been different degrees of fatness over the years, but I’ve always been on the wrong side of the BMI scale. I’ve lost weight, gained it back and lost it again. The yo-yo pattern wasn’t due to the failure of fad weight loss plans. It was always based on diet and exercise. Basically, when I ate right and worked out, the weight came off. When I stopped, the weight came back.

Recently I was able to lose about 40 pounds in four months. I was eating clean and working out regularly, and I felt great. I had to buy new clothes and for once I was regularly getting compliments on my appearance. But once I hit that 40-pound milestone, I plateaued. Fortunately I haven’t really gained any weight back, but I haven’t lost any more either. That’s what spurred me to write this blog.

diet2I need to continue to lose more weight in a way that maximizes my chances of keeping it off. That means no fasting, no juicing, no pills. Just clean food and regular exercise. My goal is to lose an additional 10 pounds by the end of June. It’ll be difficult, but it’s definitely achievable.

I’ll be updating my progress and sharing my strategies and challenges here weekly. I’m hoping that blogging about my experience will keep me accountable and maybe provide a forum for others struggling with their weight to share their ideas. Join me on this journey to wellness and check in with me every week. And please feel free to offer suggestions. I will need all the help I can get!

I enjoy food and so I've opted to "share" my food most of the time with the better half.  Instead of ordering two plates just order one with toss salad instead of mac & or rice.

congrats !!! make sure you are using loseit or another app that you can track what you are eating and your activity. then you are aware of what you are doing to lose the weight - calories in calories out!

remember each day is a new day so never worry if you slip up just wake up fresh and ready to start again.


love this!!!

MC:  I heard that cutting out white rice and no fuud after 6pm works.  I haven't tried it myself, thus, I am what I am, unfortunately.  Guud luck on keeping fuud to a minimum.

Good luck, Myong! I'd join you, but I can't do it officially as I got other things working against me.

@PMZ808 That's what I do too! Sharing one plate instead of ordering a plate each really does help you eat less.
