As with millions of other people, I made a resolution this year to lose weight. I’m getting older and the pounds just seem to accumulate. My clothes fir poorly. And I’m convinced that if I can lose 25 lbs, it will put me in a “dateable range”.
So I set goals at the beginning of the year.
Not just some nebulous goals, but definite lbs and timelines. I want to be under 220 by my trip to Kansas City in late March. And hopefully hitting 210 around June.
So far it’s been… frustrating.
While I’ve managed to lose 11 lbs to date– I’m sort of stuck now. No matter what I do, I can’t seem to budge the needle, at least not easily. I’ve modified my diet and eating schedule, and I’ve amped up cardio with some running. I am also lifting more weights.
But still I’m stuck. And disappointed.
And my clothes don’t feel any more loose.
I’m almost to the point of trying “diet pills” to help me “magically burn fat”.
Regardless, I have got to get to 200 lbs, or below. My future health (and dating potential) is at stake!
