This morning I got on the scale, buck naked. And, it read 189.7 pounds.
I want to say “How did this happen?” But, I know the answer: Too many nuts, chips, cookies, cakes, donuts, bread, french fries, pizza and red meat. And, not enough fruits and vegetables.
How’s that for simple?
I was really fat in 2006 and that led me to Weight Watchers. Then, I lost it all by January 2007 and basically kept it off for SIX YEARS. But, in February of 2013, I started working from home on a full-time basis. And, that’s when the snacking started.
The last time I weighed what I wanted to weigh was probably March of 2013 when I was 172 pounds. It really got bad in the summer of 2013 when my family went to Disney and I packed on some pounds there. By the end of 2013, I was closer to 185 pounds. And, it seemed like most of this year the number has been around 184 – until now where it’s pushing up against 190 pounds.
Bottom line, I need to lose 17 pounds. And, I know how to do it. Now, it’s just a matter of eating less crap, cutting out the mindless snacking, and making better food choices.
