(fasting food, water intake only)
Weight: 266.6

Regarding food, I've been out of control for the past few months.  I can control my food intake during the day, but then usually lose it at night.  

For various reasons I've decided I need to get in control of my eating today.  I didn't really plan it out, but have decided to give up food for a little bit.  It may be a day, a couple days, or more.  I just need to stop shoveling junk into my mouth.

Progress as of today: 3 lbs lost so far, only 91.6 lbs to go!

Yesterday no pop again, but plenty of junk eaten.  Headaches have deminished the past couple days.  Starting to think about regulating what I eat, but know that Christmas vacation is going to be filled with eating.  

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 89.6 lbs to go!

Made it through 2 days without any pop.  Today has been another day without pop, but with a large amount of food.  Larger amounts of food have been how I've been trying to cope with the pop withdrawl.  I've had a few strong headaches over the past couple days.

Yesterday I ate a lot, but made it through the day without a pop.  Part way through today, I've eaten a lot, but will try to make it through the day without a pop.....

Starting today by just trying to eliminate the Mtn Dew.  Replacing it with water.

Ate 4 or 5 peppermint bark chocolates.

Yesterday went much better than the past month.  I took in a decent amount of water and stayed away from the pop / candy.  My wife and I sat down to watch a movie and I really wanted some popcorn, but resisted.  Starting off today with a jug-o-water and some Fiber One w/milk.

Took the family roller skating last night 

8am - Fiber One w/ milk, multi-vitamins 

11am - homemade fruit smoothie with my girls - banana, peach, apple

noon - full can of soup (2 servings)

Progress as of today: 49.6 lbs lost so far, only 45 lbs to go!

Good job! Have an awesome day today :)

Welcome back.

supercheese on 07/02/2013:
congrats on the no popcorn. its a weakness for me. Have a good one!

OhioRaven on 07/02/2013:
How much water ? Since I started drinking the crap out of water, I haven't had the urge for a Mt. Dew at all.

graindart on 07/02/2013:
Somewhere around 100oz daily. I'll up the intake if I'm outside, hot, or exercising.

Transformation on 07/03/2013:
Great job on resisting the popcorn! Good for you!

We'll have to call June "the lost month".  I started having health / body issues at the end of May, nothing serious, just exceptionally irritating.  I haven't exercised in a long while now and my food intake has returned to my normal 2012 levels  (tons of Mtn Dew, candy, chips, pizza, snacks).  June saw me gain 10-15lbs.  I've tried getting back on diet several times during June without much to show for it, other than several "last day before the new diet starts, binges".

Today the scale starts going back the correct way.  I still have the minor health / body issues that may keep me from exercising for awhile, but at least I can clean up my eating habits again.  It's easy for me slide down the slippery eating path when I don't write down my daily success / failure, so I'll be back here again tomorrow whether today is a success or not.

Started this morning with a small bowl of Fiber One cereal in some milk.  Took a couple vitamin tablets.  I've got my jug-o-water sitting by me.  

8am - Fiber One cereal w/ milk

10am - Slimfast shake

lunch - family get-together at Pizza Hut - ordered salad bar and ate 2 large plates of salad

2pm - banana

3pm - 2 raspberries

5pm - full can of soup (2 servings)

8pm+ - 10 raspberries and about 10 olives

Progress as of today: 45.2 lbs lost so far, only 49.4 lbs to go!

Yeah ! GrainDart's Back ! How you doin' Pal, I missed ya ! I'm glad your back. Yes, write down your successes as well as your failures. I'm here to whoop your ass. I'm taking the gloves off. We're gonna get you back to 175 and in a medium shirt. No, seriously. This place has helped me so much and I want it to help you too. I know how the medical things can go. It hinders your mobility. It did mine early on. But to counter the lack of exercise I started eating really, really well. And to put it bluntly, I think some of the stuff you used to put on your plate really sucked. (that's me taking the gloves off) I think I'm heading for 175Lbs but I don't want to be the only guy there. YOU HAVE to come with me. I'm really glad you're back. Love You, Man !

Totally and completely off-plan for the past week and I paid with another gain.  I've been racing quite a bit the past few weeks and it's been very easy to just slip back into the bad eating habits.

Starting off with a Slimfast shake this morning.  Have a large container of water at my side.  Tonight is the monthly meeting of the NW Christian Car Club.  We always have pizza.  I've eaten pizza 4 or 5 times over the past 10 days.  I love pizza, but am thinking about trying to skip eating it tonight.  I could really use a "win".  I haven't decided one way or the other, so will see how it goes.

THere is a car club in our area that meets at my fav pizza place too. Do they pre-order pizza for y'all or do you get to order? If you can also order, get a big salad and cut 1 piece of pizza up in bite size piece and throw it in the big salad. Ask for dressing on the side and only dribble a little dressing in it to barely moisten it. Then you can enjoy the flavors of the pizza and get a filler with the salad. Have a great evening!

OhioRaven on 05/28/2013:
I'm very glad to see you back on here. You really haven't done that bad. Look at all the crap you lost. I know "all too well" what you been going through. When I'm away from my regular routine day...you can lose where you're supposed to be. The good thing is that you're back with our flock and repenting. Stay with it, Pal.

skinnygrlwithin on 05/28/2013:
It's always tough when you don't really have a choice for your food. If you can find time to eat enough before this meeting I say try and skip the pizza... you'll be happier with your choice. If not, and you can order I'd definitely go with the above suggestions!

grannyannie on 05/28/2013:
Pizza is so hard to resist! I'll be faced with it at least 3 times on my upcoming trip.

Mskitty on 05/28/2013:
PIZZA! I miss it but not as much as I miss my body that was 40lbs lighter than I am now. Pizza even though sometimes it can seem like a healthier choice then somethings- its really laden with the worst types of carbs.

Whenever you see it you should try visualizing something negative - like a stick of butter or an extra chin or something. I find I have been able to stay away from things when I constantly use a visual que to remind me of what that food truly represents to my body.
