(drink water, eat 3 meals a day)
Weight: 251.2

Yesterday was as expected.

B - Slimfast

Skipped lunch as I wasn't hungry and I knew I was going to be eating quite a bit during the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl - couple pieces of mountain lion sausage, 2 helpings of chilli, bowl of chips and salsa, rib, tacitos, 2 pigs in a blanket 

Water intake was alright, maybe a little low.

Progress as of today: 18.4 lbs lost so far, only 76.2 lbs to go!

(drink water, eat 3 meals a day)
Weight: 252.4

Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

L - Chillis - little bit of beans/rice, sweet potato fries, 2-1/2 shrimp tacos

D - chicken cordon bleu

S - cheese stick 

Water intake ok, maybe a little low.

Lunch was the most food I've eaten all at one in awhile.  I was full and working on my 3rd taco.  I would've normally pushed on and finished it, but was able to set the last half of the 3rd taco down and walk away.

Today is the Supper Bowl.  No that's not a typo.  I host an annual Super Bowl party for friends/family and no one cares about the football, it's all about the food.  I'll probably eat more than usual tonight because of it, but will make sure not to fall back into the soda trap.  

It's been a little over a month since my last Mtn Dew.  I bought some for the party (for others) and held a can and looked longingly at it.  (Imagine Gollum from Lord of the Rings stroking it and saying "My Precious".)  I've quit soda in general a few times.  Once I went approximately 6 months without drinking pop.  I then decided to reward myself with a can of Mtn Dew.  I was surprised that after no pop for 6 months the Mtn Dew tasted heavy, syrupy, and not all that good.  It wasn't until I had been drinking it for another week or more that it went back to tasting great.  Unfortunately once I've had a pop, it's hard to resist again, it must be my love for sugar and caffeine.  I'm an all or nothing type person.  I either have to avoid pop or I'll drink it all the time.

Enough rambling, time to get ready for church.

THANK YOU for the tip for on-line sunglasses! I need to look into that ASAP! I have never adjusted to not being able to wear my contacts for the last 3-4 years!

Yesterday was ok.

B - Slimfast

L - Don't remember.  Think it was a cheese stick, piece of ham, and maybe a meal replacement bar.

D - Little bit of chilli and a large salad with all the fixings.

I might've had another cheese stick later for a snack.  All of my days are running together so my menu recollection may or may not be accurate.

Puddles on 01/31/2013:
Are you doing a high protein plan. How does that work out. Have a good day.


graindart on 01/31/2013:
It's not a specific high protein plan, but I tend to go off course when I eat carbs. I love breads, pastas, etc. When I eat them I usually overeat so I've been trying to avoid them more often than not.


V on 01/31/2013:
Awesome breakfast!! I love omelets hope you had a good day :)

Thank you. You do have to love the first week. lol Now the real work starts but at least a little bit of the cravings have settled down. Have a good week.

(drink water, eat 3 meals a day)
Weight: 255.4

Yesterday was decent.

B - Slimfast

L - went out to Cafe Rio - 2 cajun shrimp tacos, some rice and beans

D - monster omelet with eggs, cream, breakfast sausage, turkey, bacon, chicken, cheddar cheese, sauteed onions, havarti cheese - all topped with sour cream and salsa  

Water intake was ok, maybe a little low.

Dinner we were going to go out to a restaurant, but changed our mind and just decided to throw whatever we had into an omelet.  It was large, but still less than I would've taken in at a restaurant.  Weigh-in tomorrow, hopefully down a little more.

Progress as of today: 14.2 lbs lost so far, only 80.4 lbs to go!

Just42day on 01/27/2013:
Your omelet sounds fabulous! Yes, McDonald's can definitely do without our attendance. Besides not being the best choices (at least not my choices), the cost really adds up. Saving $ and calories by not going! Yeah us! I'm sure you'll have a good weigh in tomorrow. :)


niftyjack on 01/28/2013:
That omelet sounds deliciously insane! Don't think I've ever had havarti cheese before.

Glad you had a good day yesterday. Keep chipping away at it and I'm sure you'll see more progress soon!

Great job once again Graindart :) Thanks for your spaghetti squash info!!

(drink water, eat 3 meals a day)

Yesterday went well.

B - Slimfast

2pm - slice of turkey, slice of havarti

D - chicken kiev, spaghetti squash, corn

Water intake was good.

I'm probably missing something else that I ate yesterday, but I was busy so eating took a back seat.  Things slowed down before supper and I was hungry, but decided I didn't want to snack so close to dinner time.  I wasn't hungry later after dinner, but felt like a snack.  I decided I've been giving in to cravings a little too much lately, so went without a late night snack.

You're doing great ! Sauerkraut is like a gut cleanser for me. Believe me. It'll get ya moving.


legcramps on 01/25/2013:
Nice day yesterday; make sure you get your nutrients in! Have an awesome day and weekend :)


V on 01/25/2013:
Awesome looking menu Graindart! Never had spaghetti squash is it easy to make? Anyhoo have a great weekend!


graindart on 01/25/2013:
I usually cook spaghetti squash in the oven 400F. An hour if whole, or 40 minutes if cut in half upside down in 1" of water. I like it with ground nutmeg and butter, sometimes some parmesan. I like the stringy "spaghetti" consistency. Forgot to mention, you scoop out / throw away the center mush with seeds. It's the only squash I'll eat.
