My ugly mug. Left picture was taken 2012, right picture taken today. I am 60 pounds lighter today than in 2012. It’s been a long, hard, painful road. As of this morning I weighed in at 284. This is not a new number for me because I’ve seen it before. I saw it on my way down to 269 two years ago and I saw it again on my way back up to 305 back in March of this year.
I have come to realize that it’s a mental thing with me. I started cycling just about the time I reached the 269 mark. According to the app I was using, it stated that I was burning over 2,000 calories a trip. In my mind if I’m burning 2,000 calories I can eat more and not worry about it. I stopped using the treadmill and just rode my bike and with me burning more calories I ate more and with that I started gaining my weight back. Like I said, it’s a mental thing with me.
I’m staying within my diet this time and I’m staying on the treadmill, at least for now. It’s too dark for me to ride when I get home and right now I don’t have the time to ride on the weekends.
Today had another 4 miles on the treadmill. My plans are tomorrow morning to get another 4 miles before I leave to go to the football game. I’m not sure if I’ll have time to walk after I get home.
