I have battled my weight probably my whole life… actually not that long, when I was a kid until like 4 I was actually a picky eater and pretty skinny but my Mom from then on wanted to make sure I eat good meals and pretty much everything. She used to even give me vitamins and stuff. Well it worked. I have once again reached a weight that I am not comfortable with and my cholesterol is pretty high for my age.
I have in the past worked out quite a bit and watched what I eat but nothing seems to work. It can get quite frustrating when you are not only on a diet, but also are working out 2 – 3 hours a day. I did this for the better part of two years. I was doing lots of cardio workout, plus free-weights and at the end I looked the same, I was probably healthy but I did not feel I was getting the results for the effort. I want to see the six pack that I know I have under the flab.
I just got my cholesterol checked and I have to call the doctor back because he has some “recommendations” for me. Hopefully one of them is not for me to start taking cholesterol medication but it might be. As frustrating as it might be I have to start once again watching what I eat and also exercising again. But I am going to try something different this time. Actually tracking stuff here. Since I have my blog I have not worked out consistently or really watch what I eat. I am not sure how in depth I am going to get with posting about my progress here but I will start by saying that right now I am at 241. My ultimate goal would be 180, but my realistic goal is 200. Either way I have to start putting a lot of effort into it. I am not going to get into a strict diet just yet, but I am trying to lower my intake. I am however going to start really concentrating on the workout part.
I have a busy life, but if I do not watch it I might not have a life to worry about in the future if I do not get myself into gear. So I guess from today on the Logtar weight loss challenge begins.
