I have stopped the forward momentum…and the scale is now going backwards again.
Saturday wasn’t too bad….Sunday was terrible….I fought through Monday and didn’t screw up and now I feel really motivated- probably the bulletproof coffee that my wife made me but I’m jacked and feel good.
14 years ago today my entire life changed…I’ve told the story a million times- now, it’s time for a new story.
I need to make one of those life changing events happen or there isn’t going to be much of a life left….I need to open the door and fall in love with Sharketo…health….weight loss….whatever you want to call it.
It’s only a setback.
Kenya Crooks said something in one of his YouTube videos the other day that really hit home- stop saying that you failed and start looking at them as “setbacks”…a ton of setbacks but we are still trying and I think that is the key. I haven’t just given up and accepted being morbidly obese my entire life.
I always start off great but loss motivation, inspiration or let the stress of life situations just get me into a really depressed state of mind…I feel like I give up- even though I know I haven’t.
Finding something that works is the hardest issue for my wife and I- Sharketo worked for a couple of months but then we bought a house and didn’t have time to put the work into fixing food at home and that has led to about 3 months off Sharketo and getting back on is really- REALLY hard! So, I guess staying on it is the hard part…I truly think we have found what actually works.
No one reads this crap but myself (and maybe my wife, if the post isn’t in the Pokemon category)…so let’s get personal for a second- Sharketo isn’t dead but it is in a coma.
I have really huge mood swings- I go from being really happy and motivated to pretty depressed and it all revolves around my mom’s health, the news and life in general.
I do feel that Sharketo (lazy keto) is the perfect thing for me- I dropped 50 lbs. on it and was really happy- however, I think my food addiction is more based on emotions and control and less on the actual food. I use to think that I was just addicted to the taste of food but when you go on a diet where you can eat meat, cheese and bacon but STILL not stick to it, there has to be other issues and I’m slowly figuring those issues out.
