It has been too long since I’ve posted something. I haven’t done a weigh-in post since early May. My life feels like it has gotten out of hand. Not so much with weight loss, but with everything else. It all stemmed from the end of the semester when I was working full time, writing my massive final paper, and a thousand other commitments. Even though that was at the end of April, I don’t think I have fully recovered. When you’re spinning all those plates and they all come crashing down, it’s sometimes hard to get back up and reset. Thankfully, life is beginning to slow down (for now) so I’m getting back to getting where I need to be.
A while back, Megan and I made a challenge to lose 30 pounds in the 90 days leading up to Day 1000 of our weight loss journey. At one point, I was down to 222 pounds and the goal was in sight. Then the scale started to creep back up. After some bad choices and an epic trip to Disney where I ate all the things, I weighed in this morning at 230. It was awesome to see that I could get down that low of a weight; I want to get back down there so bad! Now, I have the drive to get there.
Another thing that kind of threw me off was the last Dietbet I was in. I didn’t fully commit to it like I could have, which is a shame because I should be all about a social weight loss competition (social media+weight loss=things Nathan loves). When I was going to be almost mathematically impossible for me to win, I essentially gave up. This morning, I weighed in for my second Dietbet (hosted by my awesome wifey!) and I feel good about it. I’m going to be more active in the social aspect, while utilizing its accountability. Megan and I both do awesome when we are both holding each other accountable. We’re both ready for the MacDonald’s to be the MacSlim…nalds…skinnier. We want to be skinnier lol.
Anyway, I’m ready to get back to blogging too. It’s been such a blessing to have this space to get my feelings out and for it to be received with open arms/ears. This past month, I have not taken advantage of that and that’s stupid. So here we go. This is the zillionth reset of my weight loss journey, but so what? That’s just the ebb and flow of it all. See ya tomorrow.
