(drink water, eat 3 meals a day)
Weight: 244.8

Yesterday went alright with a little slipup at the end.

B - Slimfast

L - large can of soup

D - homemade soup & grilled macaroni / cheese sandwich

Latenight snack - slice of cold cheese pizza.

Water intake was good.

At dinner time I decided to try a new sandwich, so I put some leftover mac-n-cheese between 2 slices of rye and grilled it panini style.  It wasn't bad.

Late night snack I was planning on just having a cheese stick, but saw the pizza box staring at me so had a slice.  I really should get rid of the remaining pizza.

A fried Mac-n-cheese sandwich. Who are you...Elvis ? Ha-ha.

I dated a girl in Hutch. Her Dad was a doctor of some sort. Becky Gillette was her name. She worked a some big investment/retirement company there.


legcramps on 02/21/2013:
That's an interesting sandwich, I wouldn't have even thought to try that combo! My Dad used to love love love turkey stuffing sandwiches. I know, bread... with bread. Have a great day today!


lolla on 02/21/2013:
Pizza boxes are evil!


Puddles on 02/21/2013:
You sure have unusual ideas but keep on trying new stuff you never know you might just find something that is really wonderful. It certainly makes for divers variety of food.

Yesterday was alright.

B - Slimfast

L - I can't remember exactly.  I think it may have been a large salad, but don't know for sure.  All of my days are melting together.  It must not have been anything "bad".  I'd remember if it was a DQ Peanut Buster Parfait !!!

D - I tried eating a frozen dinner, but it tasted nasty so I threw it away.  Ended up eating 2 slices of leftover cheese pizza.

Water intake ok.

B - Slimfast

L - 2 slices of leftover cheese pizza and a cup of creamy tomato soup

D - went out to chinese buffet - had 2 plates of whatever I felt like - rice, noodles, beef, chicken, shrimp, pork - skipped my normal "dessert" plate

Lost a few lbs this week.  Things are progressing ok and I'm not feeling hungry all of the time, although I'd love some chocolate right about now.

OhioRaven on 02/18/2013:
You are doing good. I'd be happy if I could live the rest of my life under 200Lbs. I dunno. Once when I was under 200, some my friends said I looked sick. I'm just a big boned guy I guess.


Puddles on 02/18/2013:
Keep up the good work. One day at a time. Have a great day.


OhioRaven on 02/18/2013:
Right, we've both been down this path before and need to maintain this time. Hopefully the girls on this site will be hard on us when/if we start to slack off. Otherwise we're gonna have to be hard on each other.

(drink water, eat 3 meals a day)
Weight: 248.2

Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

L - 2 slices of cheese pizza and 2 or 3 breadsticks

S - cheese stick

D - Applebees - or as my 7yr old daughter deemed it "Applebusys" because it was so swamped (busy)  - oriental chicken salad with hot bacon dressing, chips and salsa / sour cream / artichoke dip.

Water intake was a little low like it usually is on the weekends.

Tomorrow is weigh-in so I'll see how the scale thinks the week went.

Progress as of today: 21.4 lbs lost so far, only 73.2 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 02/17/2013:
Good luck on the scale tomorrow. You seem to be doing good so you'll be alright.

Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

L - large salad with all the fixings

D - toasted sandwich - rye bread, ham, cheddar cheese

S - cheese stick

Water intake was alright.  Made it through the day without stealing one of the kids chocolate bars.  Will probably be getting rid of the candy today.

Not stealing a chocolate bar, that is a huge success!!! Have a great day:)


Puddles on 02/16/2013:
Success taste better than a chocolate bar. Good job.

Things are busy and time is flying by.

Yesterday:

B - Slimfast

L -  tried a new restaurant - fried onion petal appetizer, large burger w/ bbq sauce & fried onions, french fries

D - large sandwich with: rye bread, thin apple slices, chicken, coleslaw, thin pickle slices, bacon bits

Water intake has been decent lately.  

Yesterday - Got up early in the morning to go purchase 3 sets of flowers (wife, 2 daughters) and fresh donuts from a new donut shop.  In part to avoid the dinner crowds, we went out for Valentines lunch instead.  I was privately justifying eating off-plan for the whole day due to it being a holiday.  When it came to dinner time everyone was kind of busy doing their own thing, so it made it easier for me to just eat a sandwich, albeit a large sandwich.  

The kids had lots of candy from school / church and I've been staring at it for a few days now.  The mini chocolate bars look so inviting.  One wouldn't hurt, would it?  In the larger picture, the answer is "no, one wouldn't hurt".  Unfortunately I know that if I have 1, it'll become 2, then 3, then maybe a whole bag.  I tend to be all or nothing.  So in this case it needs to be "nothing" because I want to keep going in a positive direction.  To get the temptation out of the house, I might have to let the kids know that they can eat all they want today, but tomorrow the leftovers are going to be gone.

Progress as of today: 21.4 lbs lost so far, only 73.2 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 02/15/2013:
Wow, I'd probably be the same way with the candy. It would be like a recovering alcoholic taking just one drink. It's not gonna happen. Stick to your guns, Dart. We're gonna do this.


niftyjack on 02/16/2013:
Good luck staying away from all the candy. I feel bad for the kids (a couple of days after Halloween, my mom would always take our Halloween candy and "mail it to Grandma" when I was younger), but I doubt it's good for them, either. :)
