I started this journey on January 9th. I was determined to make a change and so far it has gone well. I weighed 324 when I started and weighed 309.4 today. I am still a long way from where I want to be, but I can't knock the progress.
A turning point for me was last night as my wife and I went out to dinner to celebrate a friend's birthday. We went to Barley's Taproom and Pizzeria, which you guessed it, has pizza and beer. The pizza is super good and the beer is super cold, but I was able to confidently decline both and go for water, burger (no bun) and spinach salad. The meal was good, just like the meals have been for the past three weeks. I am at a point where a cheat meal wouldn't hurt me too bad, but I also decided that I don't need one yet. I haven't had too many cravings aside from Keto friendly food, so why not let it ride.
While my diet has gone well, the gym and cardio workouts haven't been as consistent as I would have liked. I need to work on that this week and see if I can get the ball rolling there as well. I have had some good workouts, but for the first time, my workouts are my struggle point. Sure I can blame my hectic work schedule and other factors, but I am working on a no excuses approach to 2017. I need to find a way to get it done and I will.
