OK, now that I have nailed all of my big goals for this year (already) it’s time to get very, very serious about losing 50 pounds.
Ten years ago I lost 30 pounds, so I know exactly what and how to do this. Every Sunday I’ll put a small mention in my blog as a way to put pressure on my self.
My goal is 2 pounds a week, and if I have a bad week it will be that I stay the same.
I know there will be plateaus, but the best psychology is to just keep chipping away at the stone and move the ball toward the goal line as much as possible, and that each week will be a success.
My father and aunt had the same exact problem, and my only advantage is that I have been a serious athlete in the past, and I do things like cycle 50 miles a week without thinking about it. I can’t do the 160 mile a week like I did 20 years ago, but I can do enough that will ensure success.
The big tackle is changing my diet in a semi radical way, but as I said, I have been down this road before.
I also accept that I am and will always be fighting genetics and behavioral preferences.
