Getting harder…

December 6th, 2010 by Ian

The last two weeks haven’t gone very well weight lose wise (fine otherwise).  I see a couple problems:

  1. ‘Tis the season.  I’ve been to a couple good parties and let the diet slide — probably WELL exceeded my calorie limits, but I wasn’t tracking it.  A guy’s got to have some fun too!
  2. I think my body is getting hip to what’s going on and starting to slow down.  My metabolism is slower, and, frankly, I feel like crap — feeling weak and just “not well”.

I only want to go about 10 more pounds, so I’m trying to keep on it — Shelley thinks I’m getting too skinny already.  She’s happy with where I’ve gotten to.  To quote: “I’ve had the baby” — which is true.  Most of the “gut” is gone, I can tuck shirts in correctly now and feel better about myself, but I just want to get down to 195 so I can bounce around between 195 and 200 lbs.  I think that would be about the right place for me.

So, I’m persevering for the moment now, redoubling effort, and maintaining my drive — but it gets harder all the time.
