(drink water, eat 3 meals a day)
Weight: 244.8

Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

L - 2 slices of leftover cheese pizza and a cup of creamy tomato soup

D - went out to chinese buffet - had 2 plates of whatever I felt like - rice, noodles, beef, chicken, shrimp, pork - skipped my normal "dessert" plate

Lost a few lbs this week.  Things are progressing ok and I'm not feeling hungry all of the time, although I'd love some chocolate right about now.

Progress as of today: 24.8 lbs lost so far, only 69.8 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 02/18/2013:
You are doing good. I'd be happy if I could live the rest of my life under 200Lbs. I dunno. Once when I was under 200, some my friends said I looked sick. I'm just a big boned guy I guess.


Puddles on 02/18/2013:
Keep up the good work. One day at a time. Have a great day.


OhioRaven on 02/18/2013:
Right, we've both been down this path before and need to maintain this time. Hopefully the girls on this site will be hard on us when/if we start to slack off. Otherwise we're gonna have to be hard on each other.


V on 02/18/2013:
Congrats on your loss!!

(drink water, eat 3 meals a day)
Weight: 248.2

Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

L - 2 slices of cheese pizza and 2 or 3 breadsticks

S - cheese stick

D - Applebees - or as my 7yr old daughter deemed it "Applebusys" because it was so swamped (busy)  - oriental chicken salad with hot bacon dressing, chips and salsa / sour cream / artichoke dip.

Water intake was a little low like it usually is on the weekends.

Tomorrow is weigh-in so I'll see how the scale thinks the week went.

Progress as of today: 21.4 lbs lost so far, only 73.2 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 02/17/2013:
Good luck on the scale tomorrow. You seem to be doing good so you'll be alright.

Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

L - large salad with all the fixings

D - toasted sandwich - rye bread, ham, cheddar cheese

S - cheese stick

Water intake was alright.  Made it through the day without stealing one of the kids chocolate bars.  Will probably be getting rid of the candy today.

Not stealing a chocolate bar, that is a huge success!!! Have a great day:)


Puddles on 02/16/2013:
Success taste better than a chocolate bar. Good job.

Things are busy and time is flying by.

Yesterday:

B - Slimfast

L -  tried a new restaurant - fried onion petal appetizer, large burger w/ bbq sauce & fried onions, french fries

D - large sandwich with: rye bread, thin apple slices, chicken, coleslaw, thin pickle slices, bacon bits

Water intake has been decent lately.  

Yesterday - Got up early in the morning to go purchase 3 sets of flowers (wife, 2 daughters) and fresh donuts from a new donut shop.  In part to avoid the dinner crowds, we went out for Valentines lunch instead.  I was privately justifying eating off-plan for the whole day due to it being a holiday.  When it came to dinner time everyone was kind of busy doing their own thing, so it made it easier for me to just eat a sandwich, albeit a large sandwich.  

The kids had lots of candy from school / church and I've been staring at it for a few days now.  The mini chocolate bars look so inviting.  One wouldn't hurt, would it?  In the larger picture, the answer is "no, one wouldn't hurt".  Unfortunately I know that if I have 1, it'll become 2, then 3, then maybe a whole bag.  I tend to be all or nothing.  So in this case it needs to be "nothing" because I want to keep going in a positive direction.  To get the temptation out of the house, I might have to let the kids know that they can eat all they want today, but tomorrow the leftovers are going to be gone.

Progress as of today: 21.4 lbs lost so far, only 73.2 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 02/15/2013:
Wow, I'd probably be the same way with the candy. It would be like a recovering alcoholic taking just one drink. It's not gonna happen. Stick to your guns, Dart. We're gonna do this.


niftyjack on 02/16/2013:
Good luck staying away from all the candy. I feel bad for the kids (a couple of days after Halloween, my mom would always take our Halloween candy and "mail it to Grandma" when I was younger), but I doubt it's good for them, either. :)

The past couple days have been ok.

B - cold piece of leftover pizza

L -  piece of leftover pizza and 4-6oz of leftover steak

D - chicken fried rice, 4 teryaki chicken wings, edamame, and more chicken fried rice

S - piece of cheddar cheese

Water intake was alright.

My choice of food this past week has been less than optimal, but at least I haven't gone back to pop and candy.  I decided to weighin today and saw a loss so I'm back to feeling a little more motivated.

Progress as of today: 21.4 lbs lost so far, only 73.2 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 02/10/2013:
Yeah, Pop and Candy are for kids. A loss is a loss. I'll take it.


supercheese on 02/10/2013:
Pop has been really hard for me but glad youve kicked it!!

The past couple days have been a little off-plan.  Daughter's birthday and other things have made it tough to stick to any sort of plan.  Today will also be a family get together for my daughter, so dinner will be pizza and other stuff.

Yesterday
B - omelette with sausage, bacon, ham, cheese
L - #5 from Jimmy Johns, a bite of my daughters sandwich also, 1 oreo, a couple salt & vinegar chips 
D - large bowl of chicken noodle soup

Yesterday was my oldest daughters 10th birthday.  I took flowers and a balloon to her at school, went to recess with her, brought her Jimmy Johns for lunch and ate with her.  After that I took treats (rice krispy treats and oreos) for her to share with her 4th grade class. 

While writing the above, I just had a terrifying realization.  I may only have another 2 or 3 birthdays that she'll enjoy me doing the above.  I of course hope and pray it doesn't happen, but that seems about the time that girls perception of dads turns from cool to embarrassing.

Puddles on 02/07/2013:
I know they grow up so fast, but now I have the grandkids and I get to do it all over again. The fun part is that I don't to take care of them all the time and I don't have to cook and clean after them and I don't have to pay for their education. LOL The fun parts only.


supercheese on 02/07/2013:
aww happy belated birthday to your daughter. My youngest sister turned 10 last week (14 years age difference) and its strange to them grow up! Im sure my dad is having a ball seeing all of his kids grow up BUT i still like doing thing with the pops, even if he is slightly embarrassing :)


V on 02/07/2013:
Aww I am sure your daughter enjoyed the special birthday surprise as well as her friends :) I started getting embarrassed by my dad in my HS years, showing up to pick me up from school in his squad car was NOT cool then..LOL Have a good day!!

Good job staying off soda pop. It tastes nasty to me too, now that I've switched to water.


Puddles on 02/05/2013:
Glad that you had a good day yesterday. It is definitely a one day at a time and we have really cherish the good one.


legcramps on 02/05/2013:

IndependentEm93 on 02/05/2013:
I am staying away from pop as well but since I don't drink coffee or tea I need caffeine to stay awake.
