L3 Week 0 – The New Normal



*really big sigh*

OK. I’m back at the point where I want to start trying to lose weight again. And having just eschewed flubbage another cute term for the project isn’t necessarily consistent, but who ever said I was that? Still “L3” is nicely cryptic and terse.

Plus I couldn’t think of anything better.

I’m writing this mainly to register my weight at this new starting point. Which is 304.2lbs. (At least I think so – my scales seem to fluctuate more than they used to – but then maybe I’m nearer the edge of their tolerance)

Anyway I about a stone lighter than I was two and a half years ago when I first tried this. In other words I’m nearly back to what I was. And I feel uncomfortable and I get out of breath easily. So sooner or later I felt I had to re-start the diet/exercise.

So it’s become the new normal, the new default position. At least for what I should be doing. Once I didn’t really think about it and ate what I wanted. Now, even if I do that, I’m doing it as someone who feels I really should be dieting. I’ve become the kind of person I used to feel sorry for – someone either denying themselves or feeling guilty for not denying themselves.

But I feel I don’t have a choice – as I said it’s uncomfortable being this overweight.

  1. Good luck with the new diet.

    If you can, get out there and buy yourself a new digital scale. Most of those can measure up to 350 or 400 pounds.

    Just take things a day at a time. Small steps. Don’t worry about the future and how long it will take to get where you want to be. Just do the best you can each day and don’t dwell on past mistakes. A big pile of cliches, but they are true.

    Good luck on your new adventure.
