Sadly, diet check-in #12 does not come with good news. It doesn’t come with bad news either, I suppose. It only comes at all because I’ve apparently committed myself to checking in here weekly, regardless of whether or not I’ve made progress. This week, again, there has been no progress.

Well, I haven’t been making much progress as of late. In fact, I’m still spinning my wheels. For today’s weekly check-in, I came in at 260 pounds even. That’s three weeks in a row I’ve stared down that number. Read my check-in from last week to see how excited I was to not register a gain or a loss. Anyway, it’s a long way from where I want to be. Yet there it is.

Weekly Weigh-in: 260.0

I am stuck

The last week came with fewer distractions except for those of my own making. I’d say I hope for better things next week, but guess what next week is. That’s right. Thanksgiving. There’s a pretty good chance that a week from now I might be registering a gain, unless of course I’m extra good between now and Wednesday. Then maybe a little (lot of) turkey and other stuff won’t offset me too terribly much.

Of course, I know better. After that, things will just keep getting tougher through the holidays. There’s all the extra meals and fancy events to consider. Never mind the constant temptation of holiday cookies, which just seem to be everywhere.

Hold on tightly, Lucas. This is going to get even tougher. That’s it for diet check-in #12. Stay tuned for next week when I will likely be lying to myself to show some progress. Nah, I’m just kidding. The whole point of this thing is to be honest and keep me accountable. Besides, is anyone really even reading this?
