My New Year's Weight Loss Resolution

Weighed in this morning at 156 pounds.

Since my last post, I went through a Christmas weekend (Thursday through Sunday) of eating, drinking and partying. I saw my weight shoot up to a high of 161 pounds on Saturday morning. Sorry, I didn't manage to update my weight loss chart.

But I was able to spend the rest of the day Saturday and then Sunday controlling my food intake. And on Sunday night, I managed to do some light weightlifting for the arms and shoulders. I was able to bring myself down to the 156 for this morning.

My New Year's Weight Loss Resolution

Diet-wise, I'm glad Christmas is over. I still have News Years Eve, but I'm not sure if I'm going to do any partying then. I may just stay at home and try to keep my intake light.

I'm going through this cycle of spending 3-4 days on my normal "beef jerky diet", and then the next 3-4 days of eating and drinking mass-quantities. As a result, I've got this 10-pound roller-coaster swing where I lose 10 pounds and then gain 10 pounds, all in about a 7-day span.

That's obviously not good.

That's not really the "lifestyle change", I'm hoping to achieve. On those days where I do a lot of eating, I need to do a better job of choosing what I eat. I'm still eating high-fat, high-salt, high-carbs, high-everything foods on those days. I gotta train myself to eat heathier stuff all throughout the week.

So how am I going to do that?

Well on those days, I often spend time with my friends, riding motorcycles, and then hanging out at a bar over some beers and chow. The beer is actually not that bad, in that it's zero fat, low-sodium, and fairly low-carb compared to other soft-drinks and juices. It's the burgers, pizzas, tacos that do me in. I need to focus on salads, and cut back on the breads, potatoes, and cheese.

So that's my new year's weight loss resolution for next year. Get myself to a point where when I'm hanging out with friends, I can eat low-fat, or even zero-fat foods, and kick the habit of eating high-calorie foods.
