I started round 2 and was doing okay for five days then drifted and "woke-up" ten days later at the same weight I started round 2.
While I lost this round - it is not that bad. Round 3 starts where I started Round 2 - 111kg. Most important - I am back.
My 2 goals for round 2 were; figure out where I went wrong and how I was able to gain 24 kg in two months and second, lose 26 kg in the next 3 months.
Round 3, I am not going to try and figure out where I went wrong. I am just going to do, what I already know how to do - follow the Okinawa diet and lose 26 kg in 3 months.
Figuring out where I went wrong, had a weird influence on my diet. I can't articulate it.
It is hard for me to do a positive (lose weight) and do a negative (focus on how I messed up) at the same time. My personality is not wired for it.
It does not mean I don't want to know how I messed up - I do. I just think this is not a prudent time to focus on that mistake. When I lose the next 26 kg I will try and figure how to maintain my weight. Then, and only then, will I try and figure out where I made my mistake(s).
I remember something an old coach told me - KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid)
Thank you to all the people who read my blog. I know it has a positive impact on my goals.
