Weight loss has really been a challenge for me since I finished playing football. I’ve been up and down over the last 15 year or so and have always struggled to be consistent. 2020 was a year that I finally felt like I got some control over my habits and put myself in a good place with food, eating and exercise.
2021 was a maintenance year. I didn’t intend for it to be but it was. I held on strong until the holidays and then, slowly but surely I let my new habits slip and let old habits creep back in until, today I find myself back in an uncomfortable place.
I haven’t gained everything back. I was able to drop 60lbs and I’m up 20. But I feel like I did 60lbs ago. Just uncomfortable. I don’t like it. I guess I mostly don’t like it because I know it’s all me. It’s my choices. No body did anything to me. It’s my responsibility.
So, I’m getting back on track. I’m making better choices. I’m in control of my habits. My habits aren’t in control of me. I don’t call it a setback, because I’m not down and out. Really, I’m just getting started and I have plenty of road left in front of me. My goal is 250 and it’s doable. I know because I’m going to do it. I know what success feels like. I’ve done it before and I’m doing it again.
