Thank you. You do have to love the first week. lol Now the real work starts but at least a little bit of the cravings have settled down. Have a good week.

(drink water, eat 3 meals a day)
Weight: 255.4

Yesterday was decent.

B - Slimfast

L - went out to Cafe Rio - 2 cajun shrimp tacos, some rice and beans

D - monster omelet with eggs, cream, breakfast sausage, turkey, bacon, chicken, cheddar cheese, sauteed onions, havarti cheese - all topped with sour cream and salsa  

Water intake was ok, maybe a little low.

Dinner we were going to go out to a restaurant, but changed our mind and just decided to throw whatever we had into an omelet.  It was large, but still less than I would've taken in at a restaurant.  Weigh-in tomorrow, hopefully down a little more.

Progress as of today: 14.2 lbs lost so far, only 80.4 lbs to go!

Just42day on 01/27/2013:
Your omelet sounds fabulous! Yes, McDonald's can definitely do without our attendance. Besides not being the best choices (at least not my choices), the cost really adds up. Saving $ and calories by not going! Yeah us! I'm sure you'll have a good weigh in tomorrow. :)

niftyjack on 01/28/2013:
That omelet sounds deliciously insane! Don't think I've ever had havarti cheese before.

Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

S - piece of havarti cheese

L - giant salad - lettuce, tomato, italian dressing, blue cheese crumbles, bacon bits, freshly seared steak slices, sauteed onions, green olives

D - 2 large homemade tacos

S - small handful of popcorn that I stole as my wife walked by with 2 bowls for her and the kids

Water intake went alright.

Glad you had a good day yesterday. Keep chipping away at it and I'm sure you'll see more progress soon!

Great job once again Graindart :) Thanks for your spaghetti squash info!!

Yesterday went well.

B - Slimfast

2pm - slice of turkey, slice of havarti

D - chicken kiev, spaghetti squash, corn

Water intake was good.

I'm probably missing something else that I ate yesterday, but I was busy so eating took a back seat.  Things slowed down before supper and I was hungry, but decided I didn't want to snack so close to dinner time.  I wasn't hungry later after dinner, but felt like a snack.  I decided I've been giving in to cravings a little too much lately, so went without a late night snack.

You're doing great ! Sauerkraut is like a gut cleanser for me. Believe me. It'll get ya moving.

legcramps on 01/25/2013:
Nice day yesterday; make sure you get your nutrients in! Have an awesome day and weekend :)

V on 01/25/2013:
Awesome looking menu Graindart! Never had spaghetti squash is it easy to make? Anyhoo have a great weekend!

graindart on 01/25/2013:
I usually cook spaghetti squash in the oven 400F. An hour if whole, or 40 minutes if cut in half upside down in 1" of water. I like it with ground nutmeg and butter, sometimes some parmesan. I like the stringy "spaghetti" consistency. Forgot to mention, you scoop out / throw away the center mush with seeds. It's the only squash I'll eat.

Yesterday started good.

B - got up and made a large omelet for the family - eggs, cream, ham, cheddar cheese

11am - piece of turkey and havarti cheese

1pm - fruit / nut granola bar

3pm - banana

D - fried sausage and bbq baked beans - for some reason I was craving this, probably due to sugar in bbq sauce

7pm - half large bag of microwave popcorn 

Water intake was alright.

I wasn't hungry after dinner, but I was bored and really felt like eating.  I've also been craving popcorn and someone left a box of microwave popcorn out on the counter, so I gave in.  I stuck half of it in a bowl to take with me and threw the other half in the garbage (otherwise I would've probably returned for the 2nd half later on).

Hope you'll have a good work out later :) noticed you didn't mention about working out from your last 4 entries

graindart on 01/24/2013:
No workouts, just concentrating on food right now.

Bikiniwax85 on 01/24/2013:
Ah ic :)

legcramps on 01/24/2013:
I hate it when boredom kicks in; this is ALWAYS when my feet take me to the fridge/pantry. It's like my hunger signals turn right off and I can eat everything in sight and not become full. Hate it!

supercheese on 01/24/2013:
Oh boredom, I know it well... lol good job on throwing the rest away though!

OhioRaven on 01/24/2013:
Way to toss the other half of that popcorn bag !

Way to go on not giving into temptation.

Yesterday was ok.

B - Slimfast

S - slice of deli meat and Havarti cheese

L - I was driving around for work, so grabbed a small chilli from Wendys

S - mandarin orange

D - pork chop, edamame, baked apple

S - fruit/nut granola bar

Water intake was ok.

Yesterday was different.  I wasn't feeling hungry in the morning / afternoon so I just kind of had little snacks instead of a larger lunch meal.  Dinner was pretty large and I wasn't hungry when I ate the late night snack (granola bar).  I've been craving popcorn lately.

Good job yesterday!

Your menus are looking more packed with nutrients with each coming day. Good on ya, Keep up the good work sexy pants.

I decided I'm going back to weighing in once a week.

B - Slimfast

L - 8" sub at Jimmy Johns

D - roast pork, potatoes, cauliflower, lettuce salad, and 1 cream puff for dessert

S - deli slice of turkey, slice of Havarti, small handful of pistachio nuts

I checked the Jimmy Johns website for the nutrional information on my favorite sandwich before going.  I now know why I love the #9.......it's almost 1000 calories by itself (948).  A regular lunch with a #9, small bag of chips, and large Coke comes to 1500 calories, 2500mg sodium, 195g carbs.  I decided on a #5, water, and no chips for 600 calories.  Not as tasty / satisfying, but better for me.

OhioRaven on 01/22/2013:
Good detective work on the johns. Keep up the good work. I like weighing in once a week too.

Supercheese on 01/22/2013:
holy moly thats a lot for just a sub! Have a great day!

legcramps on 01/22/2013:
Good researching! It's amazing how fast calories can add up :)

V on 01/22/2013:
Awesome work with researching the calories and adjusting with the lower cal option! Have a great evening :)

Weight: 255.8

Yesterday was alright.

B - Slimfast

L - large salad 

S - banana

D - piece of quiche and some potato salad

S - piece of cheese

Ok amount of water intake.

I waited my week for weigh-in this time, but think that I'll be switching back to a daily weigh-in which I seem to enjoy more.

Yesterday the snacks were out of boredom again, not hunger.  

Progress as of today: 13.8 lbs lost so far, only 80.8 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 01/21/2013:
Looks like a pretty good day to me.

legcramps on 01/21/2013:
Awesome loss! You're doing great :)

thenewMLE on 01/21/2013:
Congrats on your loss!! I can relate to the snacking out of boredom - but healthy snacking can keep your metabolism working and your snacks were not of the bad carb type. Cheese is actually good protein so it was a nutritious snack! Have a great day!

V on 01/21/2013:
Awesome job with your loss! Keep up the stellar work Graindart :) have a good evening!

(drink water, eat 3 meals a day)
Weight: 260.0

Yesterday went ok.

B - Slimfast

L - 1/2lb hamburger with sauteed onions and mushrooms, small salad with blue cheese dressing, baked beans

D - 2 bratwurst, 1 bun, some coleslaw, potato salad, and macaroni salad

Water intake was on the lower end.  

The Slimfast or other breakfast shakes are mainly for convenience.  Any of them that I chose are high in protein and low in sugars.  The Slimfast chocolate that I drink most of the time is the high protein low carb version which has 20g of protein and 4g carbs (2sugar,2fiber).  I usually don't eat breakfast, so it's pretty much either these "shakes" or I'd just skip breakfast alltogether.

I kept from snacking, but lunch and dinner were large meals with a lot of food intake.  Weighin day is tomorrow, so that should give me some motivation to keep today on track.

Progress as of today: 9.6 lbs lost so far, only 85 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 01/20/2013:
Thanks, Dart. Can't wait till tomorrow's weigh in.
