Day 16/600 - things are going great

Sunday, March 01, 2020

Finishing an “on-point” weekend. Have been somewhat active - at least not sitting around all day. Yesterday all day cooking, today got out of the house for some shopping.

Also, bought a new cooking gadget, a sous vide cooker, and cooked some 24 hour braised veal short rib and they toured out.....awesome. Will play more with the gadget as it helps me make food prep for the week super efficient.

The things is, I obviously love cooking and made it my career for 25 years. But it also got me to where I am with my weight, always having access to good food had me go all day eating. Now I am trying to focus on really making the food I eat with great care and effort and take the time to appreciate it.

Anyways, almost 20 lbs down, feeling great and have great energy. Things are going well and I am looking forward to adding another great week to my streak.

Day 16 - 18.1 lbs down - only 181.9 lbs or 584 days to go to 220lbs

I WILL succeed, because I choose to, because I CARE!

C - COMMIT + Plan every day - I choose to see every day as a new opportunity!
A - ACT on my plans consistently - I choose to take the initiative, I own this!
R - RECORD + REVIEW daily - what worked, what didn’t - Celebrate every victory, learn from any challenge!
E - EMBRACE the journey - I choose to own every decision and every choice and will not be derailed by one challenge, by one bad choice!

    Twenty pounds down is super! You’re doing work.
    I so wish I knew how to cook. Any tips on developing a knack would be appreciated.
    Keep it up!

    I always appreciate your weight loss journey. It is refreshing to see someone make such progress. I am not complaining but my metabolism due to thyroid issues is so sluggish, my still working on my weight loss for over two years. I love the tenacity of not giving up, the will to keep going. We live each day it’s our choice if we choose healthy! Wtg!
