Monday Weigh-In, Maybe a Program, "is it possible?", and a Goal
August 3, 2020


I thought about attempting this weight loss "program" that a behavior therapist gave me, but I don't know. It says to take one lesson at a time and not to look ahead. Well, I peeked ahead at all 20 lessons. It is mostly based on cognitive/behavioral studies and some of the lessons seem strange or maybe extreme because I've never thought of trying those methods before. It's mostly about how to avoid eating more than 3 meals and one planned snack a day. There's no mention of drinking water or exercising as being beneficial to losing weight. Oh, and some of the info seems dated (on a quick glance).

Maybe I could create my own "program" by using some of these lessons with updated info, finding information (and sources) about what's not mentioned in this program, and include plans for nutritional needs, caloric intake, water intake, and exercises that I'm able to do right now and what I hope to do in the near future. It'll be a fun challenge to write up this month and that'll give me the following four months (about 17 weeks) to try it out.

I've seen quite a few videos show up in my recommended list with titles like "I lost 100 pounds in 4 months" (or some other short time frame). Is that even possible without surgery or some other extreme action? I haven't watched those videos to find out how, because I don't want any more of them being "recommended".

My goal is to lose 125 pounds before my 45th birthday. It sounds too big for an attainable goal even though it's 3.5 years from now. So, my first "milestone" goal is to lose just 25 pounds. My dream would be to reach that before Halloween, but I'll be happy if I reach it before the end of the year.

Motivation: "It does not matter how slowly you go, as long as you don't stop."
