Countdown to 48 - Day 21
Wednesday, February 08, 2017
So three weeks in, I'm doing okay. Why do I say that, I ask myself. Simply because I started this thing 3 weeks ago and though I have not been "perfect," I haven't forgotten it, and I have settled for a modest, reachable goal: just eat meals and planned snacks. It is less about how many calories I am eating and more about getting OUT of the habit of eating whatever I want whenever I want, which is sadly the point I was at.
I'm about 5 lbs down using this method, and I'm good with that. Of course if I could do some kind of exercise, I wouldn't necessarily lose weight faster because of it, but it would make me more conscious of the eating part. But I just have to accept that is going to have to wait until this hip has been replaced and I can move without what has become excruciating pain. I hate it though, because as overweight as I have become, I have always enjoyed it when I got myself to the gym or out for a walk. The things you take for granted. Believe me, the things you take for granted. I pray that once I have this done, I will never take my mobility for granted again.
