Like so many people in the world today, I am trying to lose weight. This is really just somewhere for me to put all my thoughts down during this journey. I have been gaining and losing the same 10-15 lbs for about 5 years. I'm 28, 5'8", and 242 lbs. I go through a cycle of being really excited about losing weight, telling everyone about it, and slacking off after about two weeks. This time I have decided to tell no one. Less than 5 people know I am currently trying to lose weight (again).
I hired a trainer two weeks ago (Sam) and he is wonderful. So far, I have had 4 training sessions with him and he has me doing things I never thought I would be able to do. During a session I feel like I'll never make it, but afterwards I feel great. The sense of accomplishment I get is amazing! Right now I see Sam twice a week and I do cardio on my own for 2 days a week.
I started at 244 lbs, and yesterday I weighed in at 242.6. So, I've lost 1.4 lbs. This is because I still eat terribly. I crave things that are awful for me. I took the bad stuff out of my fridge and pantry and I will still stop at a fast food place on the way home. I'm really going to try and do better this week.
