    obese > human sized

    female, 5'8. lw 129, starting at 220 but down to 216 presently. biggest struggle is extreme ups & downs with weight my whole life - this is my highest weight ever but I was about 195 when I dropped down to 130. I was above a health bf% before quarantine but during COVID I gained 50 pounds instead of getting back on track. I spent a full year consuming inhuman amounts of calories while barely moving. Long periods emotional eating aren't uncommon for me, but neither is sticking to a healthy regimen for long periods of time. Historically I have been pushed "off track" by actual traumatic events but this year has been laziness and the same amount of stress everyone is going through right now.

    no gym access in my area atm due to COVID closures, but working on sticking to a routine with outdoor cardio & bodyweight stuff. most of the challenge there is mental - I hate exercising in my house when I'm already here so often and I hate people seeing me just being incredibly fat, but hiding inside isn't getting me in shape or making me less embarrassed of my body. Also going to try and figure out the emotional eating piece as I chug along to a healthier body, but I think a lot of it is just that I'm a loser w/o any real support network who hasn't figured out a way to deal with the really ****ty, tough things in life.

    Primary focus on decreasing intake and moving more, pretty simple stuff. It sucks that I got myself here but it won't suck feeling better, moving more, and getting stronger. I'm sure gyms will be open before I'm at a decent weight so re-incorporating heavy lifting when that happens is the plan.

    1.30.21

    Weight - 216.6 lbs

    Macros - 1160 cal/79g carb/74.9g fat/37.7g protein
    Finished my intake early in the day but didn't feel hungry after. didn't properly meal prep & woke up feeling quite down so I didn't eat as balanced a diet as I'd like.

    Exercise
    none - walked around the neighborhood & had a bit of a leisurely bike ride but nothing high impact or for strength.

    Hi cowboyPete, getting started is the hardest part kudos!
    I’ll be following your log and cheer along. A little advise from me would be don’t dwell on your set backs. God know I had so many. My advice would be to acknowledge Any “failure” you have as an opportunity to GROW and LEARN. See it, reflect on it, learn from it, and then move past it. You’ve already done it before, You got this!
