(<1,500 calories & 128 oz water)
Weight: 263.8

Things have been going well in almost all aspects of my life, except my weight.

I'm as heavy as I've ever been and I'm starting to notice weight influenced issues now. I'm not as active as I was just a couple years ago and I'm starting to "feel" my weight when I lay down to sleep. I'm also noticing that the fat around my neck area seems to be causing problems with swallowing food, not enough to stop me from eating tons of stuff, but enough so that I'm noticing it now.

I've been mentioning that I need to lose this weight for quite some time now, but never seem to make it more than a couple of days whenever I try to get back on the wagon.

Here's the start of one more try. One gallon of water intake per day is my goal. I don't know exactly what I'm going to do about food as of right now, but I think I'll just try limiting total calorie intake for the day. In my mind 1,000 calories sounds doable, but I might up it to 1,500 calories per day depending on how it goes over the next few days.

* Update 8pm * The water has gone pretty well so far today, have about 20 oz left to go, will have done within the next hour or so. Calorie intake for the day was about 1,500. I think I'll just shoot for keeping it under 1,500 calories per day, that should be reasonable and still quite a bit less per day than I've been doing over the past year or so.

Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 63.8 lbs to go!

Your plan sounds pretty good...and the water, too!

Just an update for the past few days. I've kept away from the pop, but haven't been getting enough water intake. My eating habits have been less than stellar.

No pop, 125 ounces of water, and 3 miles walked on the treadmill. Lunch was a bacon beef-n-cheddar and couple of potato cakes from Arbys. Dinner was AYCE buffet at which I ate a lot, including desserts (yes, plural).

Half of a can of Coca-Cola Zero, 125 ounces of water, and walked 3 miles on the treadmill.

My eating habits weren't the best today. Slimfast for breakfast. Nice sized salad with all the fixings for lunch. Dinner was a TON of chinese food.

I only had about 60 ounces of water by the time dinner came along and I didn't feel like doing any walking either, so I was just going to write the whole night off. I also had some work I needed to do after dinner that I didn't feel like doing either. I just wanted to sit down and watch some television. I decided I couldn't just blow off everything, so I decided to put the work off until later. I hopped on the treadmill with a few bottles of water and an hour later was up to my 125 ounces and 3 miles, all while watching some TV.

No pop, 125 ounces of water, nothing after 7pm, and walked 3 miles on a treadmill. It's been a better day than I've had in awhile, healthwise.

Slimfast for breakfast, oriental stirfry for lunch, pizza & salad buffet for dinner. I don't think I had any snacks in between the meals, but I'm not sure because the day was all just kind of a blur.

The water intake was a bit tough. It's fine after I've been doing it for awhile, but 125 ounces seems like a boat-load when I'm just trying to get back into the swing of things.

Walking 3 miles in an hour really doesn't seem like much exercise on paper. But with my being so out of shape and so heavy, 3 miles is torture - hurting back, chaffing thighs, hurting feet. I'm guessing I'll wake up tomorrow with pretty sore muscles. I put the treadmill right in front of the television and watched a couple of shows while walking. It was still boring and repetitive. I hate walking outside, so at least inside the TV keeps me a little entertained.

Hopefully tomorrow will be another decent day.

Starting off slow. I haven't been watching what and when I eat for the past several days. I also haven't been taking in very much water. I've just been trying to stop drinking pop. It's felt like torture the past several days not having all the caffeine, carbonation, and liquidy goodness. Last night we had our church small group over for a mexican food potluck. I ended up having a couple of cans of Coke Zero - no sugar, but plenty of caffeine I'm sure. It actually didn't taste too bad after not having pop for the past several days. I'll probably keep some around just in case the urge seems too great. That way at least I won't see it as "falling" off the wagon......more like "leaning" off the wagon.

Today was better as far as the pop cravings are concerned, so I'm thinking of trying to increase my water intake starting tomorrow. We'll see how I'm feeling in the morning. I also have a treadmill taking up space a few feet from where I'm plopped at the moment, hopefully the dust will be coming off it in the near future.

I never feel motivated to lose weight. However my best friend is trying to cut down on his pop / snacks, so I'm going to give it another try myself. I'll comment more later today.

You should never feel motivated to loose weight but feel motivated to become more healthy! If you keep your mindset on that, the pounds will come off a lot easier!

Well, not too bad the past couple of days. No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm, and I got 125 ounces of water in each day. No exercise.

I did have a small stumble today. I was eating lunch at an AYCE buffet and without thinking I put some dessert on my plate, a small piece of pie and a small piece of rice krispies treat. About that time I remembered that I was on a diet and could've just let them sit on my plate, but decided to eat them. Oh well, tomorrow's probably going to be better.

Lunch was AYCE buffet = bacon, eggs, french toast, mac-n-cheese, ham, hashbrowns - just a little helping of each.

Dinner was a couple slices of pan pizza and a couple of breadsticks.

At least I'm not having a problem getting the water in right now.
