...I am sabotoging my desire to lose weight. Back in November when I weighed 260 I started riding a bike (again after a 18 month layoff). A few weeks and my weight had dropped to 250 and I thought I was on my way. Then Christmas, then New Years, then the SuperBowl, then Valentines Day....yep. I am setting myself up to fail. I will do well for a couple of days or maybe a week, but then weakness sets in. Now I am back to 260 which makes me think all the cold rides I have been on since November have been all in vain. I am not going to give up, but I am VERY disappointed in myself. It gets very discouraging. When I go for a ride, I feel great. I feel great when I get back. S omehow, I think just because I put in a nice 20-30 mile ride that I can eat anything. My goal now of 190 seems impossible.
Have any of you struggled like this? It seems after a good few days of effort of eating less and eating right I end up sabotoging myself with junk food. Am I afraid to look thin again? Just down in the dumps right now and waiting on spring to get here so I can consistently ride rather than the hit or miss days this winter. Perplexed to say the least.
