No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Only about 75 ounces of water today. Low carb Slim Fast for breakfast. AYCE salad bar for lunch.

I've done pretty well at staying on diet, except for Tuesday night. I went to an election party and did pretty well for awhile. Then I decided that 1 chocolate chip cookie wouldn't hurt. Then I decided another 1 wouldn't hurt. Then a piece of cake, then another cookie. By this time I just decided to have a cheat night, so on my way home I stopped and bought a 32 ounce fountain Mt Dew. While I was standing in line, a Reese's Peanut Butter cups was begging to be purchased, so I abliged. I ate the peanut butter cups on the way home and had a few sips of the Mt Dew. After not having pop for the past 6-7 weeks, it didn't taste all that great, so I dumped the rest out when I got home.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm, over 125 ounces of water today. Low carb yogurt for breakfast. Lunch was just some meat. I was out of town and remembered that there was a new BBQ restaurant near where I was going. I've been wanting some good BBQ for awhile, so I stopped in. I knew I had to get it dry, without sauce. They had quite a few different available sides, unfortunately they all were high carb styles. So, I just ended up eating a bunch of pulled pork and some pork ribs. The ribs were good, but the pulled pork was subpar.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm, about 150 ounces of water intake. Low carb Slim Fast for breakfast. A very large hamburger patty (about 3/4 lb) with sauteed onions, garlic, cheddar, and other seasonings. I ate it with low carb ketchup. For whatever reason I was really craving hamburger today. Nothing for dinner.

Thanks for the feedback. I know it's not the most healthy way to lose weight. Unfortunately I need to see results to keep my interest. I'll be honest, I fully respect a lot of people on DD that are able to stay focussed for months with slower losses. I just don't seem to have the patience. When it comes to dieting, as long as I'm not feeling hungry and still seeing weekly results, I'm happy. I'm still eating for 2 meals a day, the same as usual, just instead of eating dinner, I'm eating breakfast. I've never been a big breakfast person, but I'm kind of getting used to it.

I don't have a clue how accurate my scale is concerning the bodyfat percentage. My wife stepped on it today and it said that her bodyfat percentage was 8%. It must be off, she's trim, but not skinny. I guess I don't know what the typical fat percentage is for a fit person.

After 5 days, my weight dropped a lb. I'm happy for that, but still wish weight loss went faster. (like everyone who's ever been overweight wishes)

legcramps on 10/27/2004:
Make sure you're still eating enough so that your metabolism doesn't crash on you! If you're going low-carb, you should try to eat more chicken and fish, more green or leafy veggies and less fruit and starch. Hey, one pound in five days is one pound in five days! That's a great accomplishment, don't sell yourself short!

This is the 5th day in a row at 231 lbs. I'm ready to see a change, 229 would be nice. It usually works that way, I'll be hovering around the same weight for a few days and then drop a couple lbs. I was really hoping that tonight would be the night. Now I'm hoping that tomorrow will be the night.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm, about 125 ounces of water today. Low carb yogurt for breakfast. I fell off the wagon for lunch, on purpose. It's been almost a month with no chinese or mexican food. I was out with my wife and daughter today and just decided I'd like one or the other. My wife loves chinese food, but hates anything spicy (mexican), so that settled it. We went and ate chinese food. I thought about trying to "low carb" it, but there wasn't much on the buffet that wasn't breaded and covered with a bunch of sauce. I then decided that it was only one meal in a month and wouldn't matter, so I ate 1.5 plates of whatever looked good. I even ate the rice and noodles. It tasted good and I'm fine with the little deviation for a meal. I wasn't hungry for dinner, so I just skipped it.

Back to the diet plans again for tomorrow.

No pop, nothing after 7pm, about 140 ounces of water. Low carb Slim Fast for breakfast. A frozen dinner for lunch. Nothing for supper. I did try a small sugar-free Reese's peanut butter cup as a snack inbetween breakfast and lunch.

The past few days I haven't been taking in many calories. I haven't been hungry at all during the day, but somewhere around 8pm I've been noticing I'm feeling kind of hungry. Unfortunately that means 2 or 3 hours of feeling hungry before bed. When I wake up in the morning I'm not really hungry again, but I still try to eat something.
