Yea. I failed that first attempt. Seven days into this attempt though with no cheating... fit a few runs in there too. Baby steps. So far so good. Successful grocery run just now. You really gotta put the blinders on when you walk through that place with dieting on your mind!
Been there myself plenty of times man. First two weeks are the hardest. Get through day 14, and you'll be in the tunnel, and then eventually start seeing the light at the other end.
And while I was joking before, on a serious note I'll just pass along advice that I have to hammer home in my own head all the time: don't beat yourself up over one fall from the wagon. It happens, and it's not the end of the world. Baby steps is the key!
Appreciate the support, Brandon. Good advice. Yea, it's a bit daunting when you think about how long it can take to reach a weight goal doing it the right way. I probably won't be lifting too much during this time, so my calorie burn won't be that great. But diet alone is really powerful.
Yea, I think a good short term goal right now is to get to Day 14. Then I'll take it from there. I don't want to set too lofty of a goal just yet so I don't overwhelm myself, but I'm already starting to think my initial goal of making it 30 days isn't good enough.
