211.8 / 250.8 / 199

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Slimfast for breakfast. Mongolian Grill for lunch, ate lots. Nothing for dinner. Not enough water and I'm actually feeling hungry now. I've been craving late night stuff at Applebee's lately. The past couple of days it's been for desserts, but tonight I'd kill for some boneless buffalo chicken tenders dipped in blue cheese dressing. I even brought it up with my wife and she said that she was up for it, but we had to wait until our now 2 month old daughter ate again before leaving. Well an hour later and my laziness has beaten back my buffalo tender desires. Usually laziness is a bad thing, but in this case it's stopped me from eating past 7pm tonight. I'm still craving them though, so tomorrow for lunch.......it's Applebees time.

212.6 / 250.8 / 199

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Slimfast for breakfast. AYCE buffet (Golden Corral) for lunch. Let's just say I got my money's worth. Nothing for dinner. Didn't get enough water intake today.

I'm not hungry, but have really been missing those late night dessert outings.....hitting a restaurant at the end of the day, 8 or 9pm, for some pie or other dessert. I've been craving Applebee's Hershey's Chocolate Cake or their Apple Chimi-Cheesecake.

I'm kind of happy I haven't given in to the late night dessert cravings, otherwise I probably wouldn't be seeing the numbers on the scale getting smaller. I'm inching towards my first goal of 199 lbs. Only about 13 pounds to go. I'm already down 38 from my beginning weight, so hopefully the next 13 won't be too much trouble. Thirty-eight pounds sounds like a decent number, but 50 sounds much nicer.

For 38 pounds down, I don't see too much of a difference, however my wife mentioned today that she's noticed that my tummy has shrunk quite a bit.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Nothing for breakfast. Chinese food for lunch. Slimfast for dinner. Quite a bit of a workout, picked up playing the drums again. I've got a couple blisters and a sore back.

I came home from church band practice tonight around 8pm and was kind of thinking I'd like to go out to Applebees for desert, but my wife wasn't real interested, so that's all that stopped me tonight.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Breakfast was 2 soft-boiled eggs and 2 pieces of toast with butter. Lunch was Wendy's breaded chicken sandwich with fries and a Diet Coke. Supper was a few bites of beef stroghanoff.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Not much water today. Slimfast for breakfast. Super greasy full-o-fat fluffy taco and fat alberto along with chips and salsa. Nothing for dinner.

I'm starting to see my first goal as being within reach. Only 15 more pounds to go to my first goal of weighing 199 again. I can't decide what I'm going to do when that day arrives. One option that I've been dreaming about is to drink some Mtn Dew and eat some cookies, candy, cake, chips, pie, cheesecake, and everything else I haven't had for the past 3 months. But I know that's how I got this way in the first place. If I were to do it one day I'm sure that it wouldn't hurt too much, but it'd be kind of depressing to gain a sudden 5 pounds and have to lose it again. Unfortunately being a male I don't care too much about clothes, so buying myself a "new wardrobe" isn't any type of an incentive, in fact it's more like a punishment to have to go clothes shopping. I like the clothes I have now and tend to like things to be a little baggy anyways. There's really nothing "weight dependent" that I can think of for a self reward, except food. That's always been my problem....I love food! I like to eat it, cook it, watch Food TV, discuss it, etc. Even being on a diet I still have Food TV on while I'm working. I don't snack and I'm not hungry, but I so look forward to the next meal when I get my next chance to eat something.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Slimfast for breakfast. Fried fish, clams, shrimp, french fries, and onion rings for lunch. Way to much fried food on one plate, but it tasted oh so good! A couple of tacitos for supper.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Cold cheese sandwich for breakfast, I was really craving cheese last night and didn't give in, so I had to have it for breakfast. Lunch was a lot of stuff, buffet at Golden Corral. Nothing for dinner. Almost no water intake for the day.

218.0 / 250.8 / 199

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Breakfast was 2 hardboiled eggs and 2 pieces of toast with butter. Lunch was a large fried chicken salad with ceasar dressing and 3 or 4 buffalo chicken tenders (Applebee's). Nothing for dinner. I didn't do too well on water today.

No exercise, but I worked on the car today and did some cleaning, so at least it was better than sitting on my butt all day long. The last 3 days have been great out, 50's and 60's. To some of you it might seem cool, but after a couple weeks of not getting above freezing, it feels incredibly warm. I think spring is finally starting here, so I'll be working in the yard and garage a lot more now. Maybe I'll even get one of my automotive projects finished this year, but then again maybe not :-)

I'll feel plenty accomplished this year if I can just make it down to my goal of 175-180. My first goal of hitting 199 is seeming closer and closer. As of today only 19 lbs to go. Nineteen pounds doesn't sound like that much since I've already lost 32. I'm already thinking ahead to when I hit 199, then it'll only be about 20 more pounds to go for my final weight goal. I know I'm aways off from the final goal right now, but I'm definitely looking forward to it. It'll be so much more fun just having to maintain my weight instead of trying to lose it.

I don't know how accurate my digital scale / bodyfat monitor is, but I was looking back at when I started this diet on 1/1/03. My body fat was running around 42-43% at the start, and now it's running around 34%. That's encouraging, but still unbelievably high compared to the ideal bodyfat percentages for men of my age. I think ideal for my age is somewhere around 15-20%.

Chrysalis on 03/16/2003:
Cleaning and yard work count as exercise by default. Well, at least to me they do! Automotive work can also be exercise, especially if you do it like my ex-husband used to...get angry because he couldn't do something and beat the car up with a crowbar. Obviously, that's not highly recommended, as the car comes out of it slightly worse for wear. Maybe it would be easier to just take a walk!
