Creating a Strategy
Sunday, March 29, 2015
In a BLOG post I wrote almost 3 years ago. The reasons/excuses on why my lifestyle plans haven't been well executed are well chronicled. What isn't written about are my strategies. So I find myself 3 years after that post at 190 lbs. Up another 9 pounds. My STRATEGY is: Replacing my work week lunch from a feeding frenzy where up to 1000 calories can be consumed to a protein shake AND being accountable to my commitments.
Here's my BLOG post for August 18th, 2012:
What happens to a person in a matter of 12 months? Distractions, loose focus, celebrations, stress, good news, bad or sad news, parties, achievements met, goals in now way, shape or form achieved, more distractions, more loss of focus, another year older - boo, another year older - WooHoo, loss of family and friends, finding new friends, new babies born. A bag of mixed emotions.
I report today with mixed emotions that I moved my weight loss ticker from 161 lbs (last recorded June 2nd, 2011) to 180 lbs. I feel I have lost a battle but I am determined to win the war of obesity. At 5'5" and 180 lbs my current BMI is 30. Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater.
My emotions are mixed...on the one hand OBESITY and on the other hand CHOOSING TO WAGE A FRESH BATTLE.
