I suck at losing weight

Way back in March I broke through the 160 pound barrier and finally made it into the 150's. Since that time, I have made virtually no progress on my weight loss.

March to August. That's five months. A person should be able to lose a couple pounds in 5 months, but here I am 5 months later, and I'm still in the high 150's to 160 pound range.

In case you don't know, I am fixated on the number 155. That is what the scale told me I weighed on my wedding day, 11 years ago, and that is my weight loss goal.

My Wife tells me I look fine, so what's the difference between 160 and 155? But it makes a difference to me, even if it makes no sense.

In July I made a concerted effort to dig down and try and get to 155 pounds. I exercised every day and skipped dinner almost every night for a month. I only at dinners on the weekend and during the week I ate no dinner, or if I did have something for dinner, it was a very small portion. I lost 3 pounds. 3 fucking pounds. 157 was the lowest I got.

It was very frustrating, so after my wedding anniversary in July, I decided to take a break from the regimen. After a month of being super-strict, food-wise, I stopped worrying about food and exercise for a few weeks. Now it is time to get back in the saddle and keep at it.

They just recently made a small gym out of one of the conference rooms at work, so I am going to try and get in there 3 days a week and do a little weight lifting. I hope that, plus the daily walk and of course, various starvation techniques, will make a difference.

Yah. I'm going to try and achieve maximum pumpitude. Hear me now and believe me later, I'm going to get down to 155 if it kills me.

It's 5 pounds for crissakes. Why is this so damn hard? Maybe I'll just go on an all gin diet. Yeah thats it. Gin during the week and beer on the weekends. Ok. Maybe not. Stupid body. I suck at losing weight.
