The plan

February 17, 2013

I will be doing a low sugar/South Beath-type diet for about a week.  I don’t believe this is necessary in general to lose weight, but it has been historically useful for me — helps kick some bad sugar habits and is a nice weight loss jump start.  Then I will move towards a plan that is more whole foods/high protein, while counting calories.   Exercise will be as much running as I can handle — hopefully will do the Ryan Hall half marathon training plan for the Brooklyn half on May 19, plus yoga, cross fit, and spinning as supplements.  

Mentally-  going to look for a therapist and listen to Jillian Michaels podcasts!


Coming back to blogging and being accountable

I need to come back here for accountability.  Weight has been bouncing around by about 20 pounds, back and forth, back and forth over the last 2 years.  from the low 180s to the low 200s, which is where I am at currently.

My biggest issue is not the number though, it’s the cause — periods of uncontrolled semi-binge eating.  Just constant habitual grazing. I’ll never get off this roller coaster if I can’t address the root causes and habits of my overeating.

What I have done though is maintained 50 pounds of my weight loss for four years!  And I am so proud.  On to the next phase……
