So I just read my last post talking about the start of summer...and now it is just about over.
We've had several workshops, Tombstones, Casting, Columns & Fencing, and foam texturing. All of them fun yet a little time consuming.
We've worked on a new Celtic Cross and some crypt walls for the graveyard. We started setting up the Abbey for some new changes. We are working on a new comment box figure for the year.
We have started going rollerskating on a weekly basis. We try to walk 3-4 times a week if we can.
During it all I have gained some weight. Eating too much and snacking mostly. I got on the scale a few weeks ago and was up to 289lbs. So I decided to go back on the liquid fast. I'm going to do it for 8 weeks so I can get back to my goal weight of 245. Sort of pushing the reset button while I still can. I'm on week 2 with only 6 weeks to go. I'm already down to 272. I realize now I should have started this a few weeks ago before things really got out of hand. I'm now thinking that fasting for 2-3 weeks might be a normal thing for me every 4 months or so. After the winter and during the beginning of summer. Both slow times for me and good times to take a break from food.
Although I've gained some weight over the past 6 months I feel I have made some significant changes in my lifestyle. I am more active. I have changed the way I eat and what I eat. I have a few problem foods (bags of chips, and cheese and crackers) but mostly I enjoy more healthy snacks. The issue is really in quantity. Chris and I even split meals when going out. Just need to be more diligent and ease up on the excess.
I am determined to be a weight loss master and want to be able to say years from now that I lost 150lbs and kept it off.
