Remember when I said I wasn’t going to even try to lose weight this year?
Yeah, well, I had a bit of an epiphany when I was eating something last week and didn’t realize I was eating something. And that, along with a sedentary lifestyle, is a big part of why I weigh more than I should. I eat when I bored. I eat when I’m stressed. I eat while making other meals to eat.
So a lot of it comes down to being mindful of what and when I eat. And exercising. I’m not particularly concerned about being large as I’ve always been stocky. In high school, I weighed about 180 lbs. To be the same at age 42 would be pretty great.
Last year, I used the myfitnesspal app and lost close to fifteen pounds in three months. Then I went to Florida for vacation and ate like a Floridian. So it did work while I was doing it. I just have to not stop after a couple of months because it’s a pain in the arse to update.
So if you’re on My Fitness Pal and want a, well, fitness pal you can look me up by username “shatnerian” and we can pester each other to keep at it.
