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

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.

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.

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

(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.

Progress as of today: 17.2 lbs lost so far, only 77.4 lbs to go!

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.

Good job - keep up the good work. It is encouraging to here others having good day. It makes it possible to think that we also will have good day. If not today - tomorrow.
