I think it may be time to finally get back….our house is coming along nicely! Everything is basically done and we just have a few more boxes to unpack, then clean and we should be able to get back to a regular schedule by the weekend.
Today was our son’s first day of middle school and he is super chunky- like his mom and dad- and I know my middle school days were fucking hell…..beyond miserable because kids are assholes and we really need to make a change now.
My last update was 9 days ago and it’s time to get things back on track….honestly, I’ve had a decent reason though.
Yesterday, my wife and I signed the final papers and are now “homeowners” and I say that with quotes because we are basically just renting to own a house because the mortgage company is the actual owners but that is how life works; you can’t make it unless you are in debt.
4 days from now, 2017 will be half over and I’m already seeing that infamous meme- “almost half way through 2017 and I lost no weight, didn’t learn anything, haven’t made an effort to save any money and still ugly”. It seems that every year I see something like that- people who make New Year’s Resolutions but just continue to live the same life and never trying to make anything better and it made me reflect on the first half of 2017 for myself and, honestly, I was pretty damn amazed!
…I’m stuck in a loop!!!
I lost some weight, screwed up a few days and jumped back to 399 last week- then I had a great week and got down to 388 on Saturday, only to screw up again and I didn’t even get on the scale this morning but I’m sure I’m back up again!
I keep working my ass off and getting lower during the week, screwing up on Saturday/Sunday and going way up and then spending the next 4-5 days getting back to I was, usually a pound or two lower. I do manage to scrap a pound or two but if I would stop screwing up and keep myself in ketosis, I would still be dropping mad weight!
01.01.2017 – 440
04.17.2017 – 425
06.17.2017 – 390
On Saturday, I hit the 50 lbs. lost mark for the year! It was also June 17th, which was my two months on Sharketo- I lost 15 lbs. during the first 4 months of the year and 35 lbs. during the last two months- so it’s clearly working.
