BigRemy getting back on track....

Recommended Posts

I think back to last fall when I lost close to twenty pounds, I felt great. Now I feel like twenty pounds of shit in a ten pound sack.

My name is Joe, some people call me Remy, and I'm addicted to sugar. It fucks with any diet I try and I have a hard time staying away.

So now I'm back to square one. The difference between back then and right now was that I used to count my calories, I kept a disciplined workout schedule and most importantly, I stayed accountable on this forum, something I haven't done regularly since Christmas. It's sad and it's unacceptable. I don't feel comfortable in my own skin. I really don't like this side of me, and I definitely don't want this lowered self esteem as my daughter gets older and starts to understand things more. I'm depressed. I expect more out of myself. I got to do this.

Three little goals to get me back on track.

1. Count my calories. This works for me. I have a bad habit of picking up cookies, or going out for frozen custard or grabbing donuts. But when I actually see how many calories I'm actually consuming, I tend to grab a salad or a piece of fruit instead of ice cream since there's a big difference in calories. Stay under 2,000 calories with one cheat day a week.

2. Keep exercising. Run or swim three days a week, weightlifting three days a week, and disc golfing on Sundays. I know I can do this since I did it last fall for a long stretch.

3. Stay accountable. The less I post here, the more I get off track. I'm going to post every two to three days. No more excuses.

I'm back up to 252.8 and I'm hoping to be in the 230-235 range by the end of October. Here goes nothing.

Welcome back, and hello from one big guy to another. (I'm steadily working on making it into the muscular version)

 

How much water do you drink a day? How much soda or sugary drinks do you drink each day?

 

Your third goal is about accountability, but I thought it had to be more health/fitness specific. I'm still figuring out things here at the site, but I wanted to double check. Would you say that this goal is more of the life-oriented kind, helping you to keep on track with your other goals, your mentality, as well as your overall focus?

If this goal could be made more health-specific, would the focus on water to sugar consumption ratio be more helpful? I know that for me, my GF, my father, and my good friend dropped some extra body fat just by kicking the sugary drinks to the curb, or reducing how much of it we were drinking.

Good goals now how about grading? (oh, and an update?) :) Just passing through to nag a bit...we seem to have a shared addiction though I'm trying to replace mine with working out.
