God it’s been awhile a lot has happened the last couple of months. It’s a long story but it involved me pretty much having a “nervous breakdown” and some counseling which I’m still attending. It’s sad to say I put back on a few pounds but nothing major but it’s time to get back on track as of TODAY. I’ve experienced a TON of emotions and stress the last several weeks but we all have things that we go through. I have discovered that when you go through major bumps in the road in your life and when you feel your whole world is crashing down on you really see who cares and who doesn’t and you find new friends and people who care for you. So as I type this I am making a pledge to get back on track not only for myself but for my family. Everyday is a new day and it’s what you make of it. I need to start living my life again!! Thanks for reading I will be checking back in soon!!
I’m tapping out, throwing in the white flag, tossing in the towel, however you put it I’m done with my self imposed 30 day weigh in challenge. I will still be working out and will be more active during the evening with my family but I need my scale back NOW!
My OCD has been kicking my ass, my world and routine has changed so much this past week and I just can’t take it anymore. I was in a routine and it’s sad to say my morning weigh in’s were a part of that which made me stay on track and work harder everyday the last couple of weeks have been rough. I would have never thought removing the scale would bother me so much plus it’s other things too. I liked my routine as strange and weird as it is, it’s my routine.
Everyday my day starts with getting up early and getting cleaned up for the day. Then I’m ready for my morning weigh in just to make sure I’m still going in the right direction. Then I make my breakfast with eggs, nuts, fruit, and vitamins. My kids are usually starting to get up because no one here gets up at the same time so I start to make the kids breakfast too. Then we have to usually get mom up and around before dad’s out the door for work. When lunch time comes around I swing by home to make my lunch which lately has been a salad including protein then it’s time for some Facebook and iPad gaming then back to work. After work my wife usually makes dinner and it seems like there is always some sort of meeting, evening activity, or something going on. Then some family time and off to bed to do it all over again.
There has been a TON of crap bothering me this week ,will it be solved if I get my scale back tomorrow morning NO it won’t but it’s something I can control in my crazy head. Also the kids will NEVER talk me into more pets, I want my house back! I better stop venting just in case my wife reads this because I want to keep going GRRRRRRR!!!!!
Just a crappy start to another week!
Here’s a copy of my latest Facebook posting thought I would share since so many people are asking us how we are losing so much weight. Feel free to follow me on Facebook too https://www.facebook.com/andrew.peck.589
After getting a couple of requests last night and others wanting more information what Darcie and I are doing the past 4 1/2 months. I have decided to post more pictures, links, recipes, and info on my personal Facebook wall. I apologize to those that don’t want to see it or care but it will be another way to keep us motivated with our healthier weight loss journey and if we can help anyone in the process that would be awesome. Don’t worry I won’t be blasting your wall with posts LOL.
We use the My Fitness Pal app and log every calorie we eat. We have tried to eliminate all processed foods, fast food, and are eating more natural foods. We also stopped drinking soda, alcohol, and sugar drinks. I drink mainly water, water with lemon, and goat’s milk now. We pay attention to labels, servings sizes, and have a kitchen scale to weigh servings. We try to eat lean proteins with every meal. We don’t follow any certain diet plan. We have found the foods we like after trying a bunch of different things the past several months and we exercise when we can.
This is a journey that my family has embraced and I know there are people that have lost more weight than we have and to be honest at first it was all about losing weight now my mindset is changing and I just want my family and myself to be healthy and HAPPY. I know there will be more weight we will lose and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.
