Thanks, Puddy. I'll have a great day if I can get home and get to bed without stoppingat McDonald's. Trying to get back into my "Old" routine.

I have confidence that you can do it. If not today keep trying - tomorrow. If trying is the best you can do for today - that is good.

Good morning Raven I am happy to see your post. I am glad to see your honesty about your food list. It takes a lot of courage to do that. Just know that we are here for you and that we have all been where you are now. Together anything is possible. The power is in numbers. Wishing you a good day and thank you for being there for me.

Ohio! sounds like a good day despite some indulgences. sometimes it's ok to indulge right!? and you had lots of fun playing music, I hope! (fyi - I have a masters in music education and used to play French horn in many music groups - amateur ones in the area while teaching for the 4 years that I taught.)

I have been bad...very bad. Co-worker brought in McBreakfast. I had a sausage egg and cheese biscuit AND a hash brown. A peanut buttersandwich. And a turkey sausage. My will is so weak right now. On the upswing I did ride 11 miles. Tomorrow is another day. I can't ride my bike tomorrow I have much to do after work. Hope you guys HaveaHealthyDay !

Horn_of_plenty on 06/26/2014:
Don't worry. Let today slide. And tomorrow, have green tea the natural kind during the morning and have something like a good protein bar too. Or nuts or something. Know it will feel like crud getting back in track bc of possible sugar cravings like I get, but u will get over that hurdle tomorrow I know it!

The Good : 6mile bike ride despite the rain. The Bad : Vendor brought us Pizza and I jumped right in. I also ate some fish sticks. Gonna keep it up though. The good, not the bad. HaveaHealthyDay !

SkinInTheGame on 06/25/2014:
I totally don't know how to say no to pizza and fish sticks - good job biking in the rain!!

thenewMLE on 06/26/2014:
Good for you biking in the rain! Pizza, that's a hard one. I always tell myself "just one piece to enjoy the taste" but that tastes so good it's hard to walk away! I've never been a fish stick fan, so that wouldn't tempt me. Still no bike ride, I would ride in the rain, but the lightening has been incredible!! Have a great day Raven!

legcramps on 06/26/2014:
Way to get that bike ride in!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/26/2014:
sometimes it's good to eat what the others are eating :) at work, particularly when my boss gives me food such as a sandwich or something, it helps break the monotony of my own food...and it gives me relief that way. I sometimes am actually looking forward to eating what my boss has / orders! it's ok if it's not the healthiest, you are a guy with some calorie needs too! :) nice to see you posting Ohio :) thanks for joking with me and making me feel good even when I am down and upset :)

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/26/2014:
I also quit buying bagged popcorn because the salt and flavor lead me to bad bingeing...so no more...I do have a few in my apt but luckily I am not tempted to have any lately.

I find that having healthy food on hand...mainly always some cooked veggies along with fruit really helps me. for some reason, raw veggies don't turn me on ;)

.I lost about a pound and a half. I had a lot of challenges this weekend but I made it through just eating salads. I rode my bike into work today and it's supposed to rain about the same time I get off. have a healthy day.

Good for you! Congrats on the payoff for sticking to your plan!!

How inspiring!!

thenewMLE on 06/24/2014:
Congrats on the loss! Commitment to just one thing like skipping the popcorn will make all the difference! I have had buckets of evening rain. Can't seem to get the weather to cooperate. Good job on the bike riding.

A good day mostly. Rode the bike to work and had to be rescued because of therain. Things I could have done without..walking taco at the HonkyTonk. Extra bag of microwave popcorn, processed turkey slices. Exercise was 5.5 mike Nike ride. Have a Healthy Day !

Progress as of today: 19 lbs lost so far, only 38 lbs to go!

thenewMLE on 06/20/2014:
Was the rain rescue on the way to work or did you just need a ride home? I like an occasional rain shower when I ride if I am not expected to show up looking nice somewhere! But when the rain is really hard and it is pelting, that's no fun. What's a walking taco? Have a great weekend!!

SkinInTheGame on 06/20/2014:
A taco on the run?

Mornin' Y'all . I ate okay. I had bouts of hunger. My sins were a whole big bag of store bought popcorn and 2 slices of wheat bread. I beat McDonald's by only getting an unsweet tea and adding some splenda. Exercise was 11mile bike ride. Have a Healthy Day !

How are you enjoying your bike rides? Do you have a partner or going by yourself? Good job bypassing McDOnalds with just tea!!

SkinInTheGame on 06/18/2014:
Great discipline with the McDonalds - I turned it down yesterday too when it was offered - little victories!

What a mess I've become. I'm asking a lot from my shirts. I had to buy a pair of "Transition" pants. I'm eating the same stuff I used to except for the bad food. I'll list that. Bad food for yesterday - a whole bag of store bought popcorn, bagel with peanut butter. 11 mile bike ride. I'll really try to do this every day. Have a Healthy Day.
