No pop, no sweets. Stuck sitting at my computer doing work all day. Maybe I should try getting out some soon.

Great job on the no soda and sweets again!...sucks to be stuck at your desk all day though. Have a great day today.

No pop, no sweets. Don't know where the extra pound came from, but my weight tends to flucuate anyways. Anybody think that stress alone adds pounds? ;-) Not that I'll be complaining when the checks come in, but I've been super busy lately with work, which probably helps keep me from thinking about snacking.

breakaway on 01/20/2003:
If your not doing anything wrong diet wise I wouldn't worry about that extra pound...I hear it means good things to come!;) Have a wonderful day today!


Beth 201 on 01/20/2003:
My body does that same thing. I gain a pound off and on. Don't worry about it if you are still hanging in there on your program. You are doing great. Beth ;)

No pop, no sweets, today :-)

It's been a few days since I last wrote in this diary. I veered from my course a little. Nothing terrible, but I was taking my wife to a movie, and I really wanted a thing of popcorn and a regular Pepsi. So I had them, got extra butter, but at least just bought both in the smallest size available. Then the next day I was over at family's house, and drank a pop. Later that night my wife was munching away on some chocolate in the bedroom, so I had to have a little square......then I had to have another little square......then a 3rd little square. It only amounted to about 1/4 of a regular candy bar, so I didn't feel too terribly guilty. Although I guess I felt guilty enough not to post on here for a few days.

Yesterday and today went better, no screw-ups. I'm feeling kind of hungry right now, but it's after 7pm, so I'll just deal.

I'm not hungry very often, but I sure do miss eating the candy, pop, and especially eating something right before bed. It seems like I've been going on with this change in my eating habits for a long time, but it's only been 16 days. I guess I can't complain though, at least I'm seeing some weight progress. If I weren't seeing any change in weight, I'd probably just decide to go back to eating everything and anything I wanted, anytime I wanted.

Losing the weight isn't usually on my mind much. This may sound funny, but even though I weigh 250 lbs, I don't think of myself as being obese or anything, I just think of myself as being a little overweight. Of course, there's no way in God's green earth that I'd take off my shirt in public and go swimming, so I guess there are times that I'm self conscious of the fact that I'm overweight.

I can't really imagine what it would be like to weigh 170 lbs. It's probably been a good 10-15 years since I weighed that (early high school). Whenever I go skiing or play paintball or something, I'm more aware of the weight though. Is it wrong to hate skinny people? ;-) My brother-in-law is 6'4" and weighs about 150 lbs. That's a lot thinner than I'd like, but he stays that thin, and yet eats everything and anything that he wants. My wife's pregnant and eating like there's no tomorrow. Her eating habits mirror mine pretty much, although with less pop and a few more fruits. She's 5'10" and usually weighs 125 lbs, although she's up to 150 lbs due to being 8 months pregnant. She's always been in the ideal weight range her whole life, and I'll bet she continues eating like crazy and still drops back down to 130 lbs within 3 months of giving birth. It's not that I want her to keep the weight on, it's just that it's not fair to those of us who have to make a conscious effort to drop some pounds. :-)

Beth 201 on 01/17/2003:
First thing..It's ok to have those items once in awhile (chocolate, popcorn etc). Hey it is not much fun to not have a snack once in awhile. Hey you are doing good. You keep it up. I did not realize how I looked and how much over weight I had gotten until I see photos of me. Then WOW! But we are going to lose this weight and then we are going to have fun. Congrats on the little bundle coming soon. You take care and keep that chin up. Your doing Great! Beth :)

ameilia on 01/17/2003:
I know I know!!! I hate those skinny people because they are everything that I want to be. Dont get me wrong I love me but I want a smaller version. My bf eats really bad food like allll the time and hardly ever gains a pound and when I eat like him I gain lots.

Remember that feeling of taking your shirt off for swimming in public and remember it when you open the junk food. More fruits and veges will fill you up and they really arent all that bad you can put yummy flavours into them.

Keep going keep motivated YOU CAN DO IT

breakaway on 01/18/2003:
Grrr I hate your wife. lol No I'm only teasing...but I'm sure she get's a lot of teasing after she bounces right back after giving birth. My husband does alot of the same things you do...doesn't really care much (he says) about his weight but yet doesn't like to take off his shirt in public. I always tell him hes irresitable but he won't believe me. Just remember those skinny's can't hold a candle to the men who actually have some meat on their bodies! Wish you lots of luck getting the weight down to where you want it...tell your wife good luck with baby. You will have to post a pic here when your baby is born...we love to see babies! :) Have a wonderful day today and I think it was wonderful that you stuck to not eating a whole candy bar...believe it or not that is some very strong will power. To only have a little of something and then stop is more impressive then not having it at all I think.

Weight: 244.4

244.4 / 250.8 / 199

No pop, no sweets. Slimfast for breakfast. Gyro for lunch. A LOT for dinner. No snacks. Some water, some cravings. Not hungry much at all, but craving chocolate. I hate that new Hershey's commercial! :)

All in all not a bad day. Tomorrow should be the test. I've got to be on the road for approximately 12 hours, with a couple stops. This is when I usually drink a few 32oz. fountain drinks and eat enough beef jerky and fried gas station food to choke an ox. It's not ever because I'm hungry, it's just comfort food on an incredibly long and boring drive.

No pop, one spoonful of ice cream after 7pm. I reeeeaaaalllly wanted some chocolate today. I was rationalizing it like crazy, even thought about how pop and candy make me feel good. Made it through the day without giving in. However, my wife got home from work and was relaxing and asked me to get her some ice cream. She's pregnant and is eating anything she wants at any time she feels like it. I dished her some ice cream, and it was calling to me. So I had 1 teaspoon full, tasted ok, would've preferred an "After 8" mint.

No sweets, no pop. No exercise, sat on my butt all day long.

Beth 201 on 01/07/2003:
Hey..I have done that myself. Tomorrow will be better. Beth :)

Weight: 245.8

245.8 / 250.8 / 199

No sweets, no pop. I've been drinking a Slimfast for breakfast when I wake up every morning. Nothing after 7pm. Lunch was a large (2 serving) can of soup. Dinner was a huge helping of fried rice with steak strips.

Wish the weight came off 20 lbs. per week, wouldn't that be nice? I'd like to live in that world.

Grayjay on 01/06/2003:
If you find that world... let me know... I'll transfer :) The hardest thing I find is remembering that I didn't get this big in 3 months, so I'm certainly not going to lose it in 3 months. It's an ongoing battle filled wiht making changes in your entire life. Eating breakfast does jump your metabolism. Veggies and water work good to fill the hungry moments. Sounds like you're off to a good start. ~Deb

Weight: 246.4

246.4 / 250.8 / 199

No pop, no sweets. Pizza for dinner and an all-you-can-eat brunch. Not as much water as I'd like. Nothing after 7pm.

So far, cutting out pop and sweets hasn't been a problem. My meals aren't any healthier, but I'm not hungry and am not thinking about food all of the time. Just replacing the pop with water alone cuts out approximately 500 calories or more each day, so results should be good as long as I don't have a lapse in judgement.
