Well, the Super Bowl was an eating frenzy.  I unfortunately gave in and ate quite a bit of candy, besides all of the other food.  One bright spot is that I didn't give in on the liquids, no pop, only water.

New day.  Starting off with water, vitamins, and a Slimfast.

Made a roast beef and cheese sandwich with a little mustard for lunch.

Dinner we went out for chinese food and I ate quite a bit.

Good for you for passing up the pop and sticking to water. One step at a time, right?

Super Bowl will be an overeating event, but will still refrain from eating candy and pop.

** Yesterday **
Lunch was a couple tacos (1 fish, 1 pork) and some nachos.
Dinner was scrambled eggs, hashbrowns, sausage, piece of a pancake, and slice of toast.

** Today **

Starting off with Slimfast, vitamins, and water.

Today is my oldest daughters birthday party and we're having it at the local roller skating rink.

Letting myself get to 265 before starting a diet was a big mistake.  It's depressing how long it'll take to get back to a more manageable size.  The last time I was below 200 was about 7 or 8 years ago when  I got down to low 190's which was a decent feeling weight for me.  

I've been wearing waist size 44 jeans (mens size) and a couple pair are getting holes and needing to be replaced.  I've got some size 42 that my wife stored away for me somewhere from when I was a little lighter.  My plan is to make due for another week or two with my 44's and then hopefully I'll be able to fit into my 42's (if I can find them).

Tomorrow we're having some friends over for a Super Bowl party.  I'll be eating more food than usual, but will try to not eat any candy or drink any pop.  I know that one large meal itself wouldn't hurt in the grand scheme of things, as long as it is a one time thing and I don't stretch it out into a few day binge-fest.  In prior attempts starting in January, the Super Bowl has derailed me.  My general pattern has been to feel like I already screwed up and then continue it for another week or so.  This year had better be different.  I know I'll overeat at the party, but will limit it to only while the game is on.  No screwing up before or after the game.

** Update **

Lunch - had a french-dip sandwich and a couple fried mozzarella sticks

Dinner - pulled pork nachos and 3 pieces of pizza (double pepperoni & pineapple)

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 79.2 lbs to go!

Supercheese on 02/05/2011:
good luck and great job on losing 11 pounds so far! Remember, its all about will and soon enough youll see the pounds shed! Have a great saturday!

geevee on 02/05/2011:
Be sure to keep a conversation going w/your inner self durng the Super Bowl. You CAN control what and how much you eat. Keep reminding yourself that you're not denying yourself anything but that there is a limit just like when you drive. Having a platter of lo cal healthy crunchies will help. Keeping your mouth and hands busy w/ raw carrots, celery, broccoli and so on will do wonders. Hey! The good stuff might even have a filling effect.

Good luck tomorrow.I'll be thinking about you and looking forward to a "Success" report.

Runforfun on 02/05/2011:
Good luck tomorrow! Choose your food wisely and just try and not get seconds! ... (That's my plan anyway and also to fill up on fruit!) .. I'm going to make a fruit tray so I don't have to eat other unhealthy snacks!

Last night we went out to celebrate my oldest daughters 8th birthday and she got to choose the restaurant.  I had some Sturgeon baked fish, stuffed pasta, bread, and a salad.

Starting off the morning with a Slimfast shake, couple vitamins, and some water.

I see you are down a pound - congrats on your loss! Keep up it up!

Well a happy birthday to the proud 8 year old! You are doing well, keep it up.

Hey a pound is a pound. Great job. Tell your 8 year old Happy Birthday. :) Keep up the great work.

The microwave popcorn you mentioned yesterday is not a terrible thing, even shared with your wife. Sounds like you are doing well with your plan. Have a great day.

Slimfast for breakfast.

Frozen dinner for lunch.

Dinner was some fried chicken, potato salad, baked beans, fried mushrooms, and fried zucchini.

Kind of low on the water intake, but didn't drink anything else beside water.

I was stuck inside working on the computer pretty much all day.  Bought a new faster computer, so now I'm also having to reinstall everything and transfer boatloads of data.

Made a bit of a screwup later after dinner.  Sat down to watch some TV with my wife and together we finished off a bag of microwave popcorn.

Starting off the day with a Slimfast, a couple multi-vitamins, and some water.

As I sit here and type it's a -22F degrees.  That's 54 degrees below freezing, real temperature, no windchill factored in.  The forecasted high for today is 0.  I really hope the cars start today.  

Had a frozen dinner for lunch.

We went out to Chilis for dinner.  I had some cheese fries, fajitas, and a bit of coleslaw.

The weather warmed up to almost zero, but it's now back into the lower negatives.  The forecast overnight low is supposed to be -25F here in Montana.  Thankfully the bitter cold is only supposed to last another couple days, hitting 40F above by Thursday.

Only water to drink today.

Progress as of today: 8.6 lbs lost so far, only 81.6 lbs to go!

I hope your car started! Have a good day!

newme24 on 01/31/2011:
WOW. That's pretty ridiculous. LOL. Hope your car started and that you have a great day!

geevee on 01/31/2011:
I can't imagine such a temperature.

chidogs on 01/31/2011:
Your bio says Northwest, so from those temps, can I guess Alaska???? Woooo! That is so cold! I would think just trying not to freeze would burn calories! Take care.

Last night we went out for Pizza Hut.  Had some pizza, wings, and a breadstick.

Starting this morning off with a Slimfast shake, a couple vitamins, and some water.

Off to church in a bit, then it'll be time for lunch.

After church we went out with my parents and some friends to a burger joint.  I had a 1/3lb burger with mushrooms, swiss, and bacon.  I also had a side of baked beans.

My wife made dinner tonight: peach chicken breasts, bowtie pasta, and some baby peppers w/ranch dressing.

Water intake has been pretty slow.  I'm not having any problems wanting to drink other liquids, but I'm just not making a conscious effort to drink a lot of water.

Progress as of today: 6.8 lbs lost so far, only 83.4 lbs to go!

Made it through yesterday without caving in to the sweets cravings.  

It's "daddy takes care of us day" (Saturday).  We started with some blueberry pancakes with a little whipped cream on top, along with some Jimmy Dean sausage patties.  Now we're getting ready to play some Xbox Kinect together.

We played the Xbox Kinect for awhile.  I played for about 10 minutes, they played for about an hour or so.

It's snowing and cold outside, so we went to the mall just to get out of the house.  We walked around and ate lunch at a Greek gyro place.  I had a gyro with feta and some cheese fries.

Don't know what's for dinner yet.
