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.
