You know what? I did not make weight but gained weight, and my final weight was 268lbs. I was supposed to be at 249lbs. I came within nine pounds of goal, and my weight shot up by ten pounds.
Where Did I Go Wrong
If I had to guess, it was my attitude and urgency that changed. Why did this happen so close to goal? I am trying to analyze what I was going through at the time of failure. Although I go through these bouts with myself as I reach a certain level of success, I back down instead of embracing my success.
I now see this in real-time through journaling. This has become a habit that perpetuates as time progresses. This is something else I have to work on. I will lose twenty more pounds and then maintain it for a while and then go after another loss of twenty pounds.
I cannot look at what I did not accomplish with this challenge but the overall goal. I have to remember I started this at 305lbs and weight at the time of this writing 268lbs. That is literally 37lbs obliterated. That is three pounds shy of a whopping 40lbs loss. That is huge!!! I am not done until I reach my goal of 190lbs. In this journey, I have learned a great deal about nutrition and myself. Pushing the limits of self-awareness and accomplishing new goals for the rest of the year.
