(no regular pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm)
Weight: 209.4

209.4 / 250.8 / 199

No pop, nothing after 7pm, you'll notice I didn't say "no snacks" today. Split pea soup with cornbread and honey for breakfast. French dip for lunch. In the early afternoon I was stressed, feeling lazy, and craving junk food like crazy. It was really weird because I really haven't had any cravings lately. I started thinking about what I was craving, and my mouth started watering when I thought about some salt & vinegar flavored potato chips. So off to the closest gas station to grab myself a small bag. I devoured them with a Diet Pepsi. I was thinking about getting a regular Pepsi since I was cheating anyway, but decided not to totally fall off the wagon.

Maybe it was the fact that I'd already cheated once today, but I was really wanting to get some chicken wings later tonight. I thought about it a little and realized that the chips were a nice little snack, but I really don't want to go back to my old ways of eating, so I stopped before devouring another 5000 calories today. The fact that the scale dropped to a new low today helped a little with my decision not to do a late night snack of buffalo wings.

Only 10 lbs to go to my first goal. I was hoping to hit 199 by the time I went down to Kansas to visit my in-laws around the 25th of April. I haven't seen my mom & dad in-law for about a year, I think I was weighing around 235-240 back then. I haven't seen the rest of my wife's family for over 1-1/2 years, I think I was in the 220's then, so the weight drop probably won't be that noticeable to them. I should've taken some before photos, but too late now, and I'm not planning on going back to 250 lbs......ever! I don't think that 199 is going to happen by late this month, but hopefully I'll be at or below 205 by then.

you did well. the diet pepsi was a much better choice than the regular one. Keep up the good work .

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Slimfast for breakfast, vanilla is gross. Lunch at Quiznos.....small sandwich, clam chowder, iced tea. Nothing for dinner. I was a little short on the water intake today.

Chrysalis on 04/04/2003:
You are doing great!! And I agree...for the vanilla to taste remotely good, it has to be really cold.


MM on 04/04/2003:
40 lbs.? That's wonderful!!! And in such a short time, too! Keep up the good work! Just think how much fun you will have playing with your daughter as she grows and you shrink!

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Forgot to eat breakfast. Lunch was Pizza Hut buffet, I ate lots and lots of pizza, breadsticks, salad, etc. I'd hate to know how many calories were in that feeding frenzy. I was actually hungy again by the time dinner came around and had a cold cheese sandwich, just cheddar and 2 slices of white bread. The only real redeeming thing I did today was to get pretty decent water intake. I guess a small victory could also be claimed on the fact that I chose not to butter the bread for my sandwich.

After eating as much as I did for lunch, I was kind of expecting an increase in my weight, maybe it'll show up tomorrow. If it doesn't show back up, I'm down 40 lbs, with only 10 more to go to my first goal.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Slimfast for breakfast. Mongolian Grill for lunch, ate lots. Nothing for dinner. Not enough water and I'm actually feeling hungry now. I've been craving late night stuff at Applebee's lately. The past couple of days it's been for desserts, but tonight I'd kill for some boneless buffalo chicken tenders dipped in blue cheese dressing. I even brought it up with my wife and she said that she was up for it, but we had to wait until our now 2 month old daughter ate again before leaving. Well an hour later and my laziness has beaten back my buffalo tender desires. Usually laziness is a bad thing, but in this case it's stopped me from eating past 7pm tonight. I'm still craving them though, so tomorrow for lunch.......it's Applebees time.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Slimfast for breakfast. AYCE buffet (Golden Corral) for lunch. Let's just say I got my money's worth. Nothing for dinner. Didn't get enough water intake today.

I'm not hungry, but have really been missing those late night dessert outings.....hitting a restaurant at the end of the day, 8 or 9pm, for some pie or other dessert. I've been craving Applebee's Hershey's Chocolate Cake or their Apple Chimi-Cheesecake.

I'm kind of happy I haven't given in to the late night dessert cravings, otherwise I probably wouldn't be seeing the numbers on the scale getting smaller. I'm inching towards my first goal of 199 lbs. Only about 13 pounds to go. I'm already down 38 from my beginning weight, so hopefully the next 13 won't be too much trouble. Thirty-eight pounds sounds like a decent number, but 50 sounds much nicer.

For 38 pounds down, I don't see too much of a difference, however my wife mentioned today that she's noticed that my tummy has shrunk quite a bit.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Nothing for breakfast. Chinese food for lunch. Slimfast for dinner. Quite a bit of a workout, picked up playing the drums again. I've got a couple blisters and a sore back.

I came home from church band practice tonight around 8pm and was kind of thinking I'd like to go out to Applebees for desert, but my wife wasn't real interested, so that's all that stopped me tonight.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Not much water today. Slimfast for breakfast. Super greasy full-o-fat fluffy taco and fat alberto along with chips and salsa. Nothing for dinner.

I'm starting to see my first goal as being within reach. Only 15 more pounds to go to my first goal of weighing 199 again. I can't decide what I'm going to do when that day arrives. One option that I've been dreaming about is to drink some Mtn Dew and eat some cookies, candy, cake, chips, pie, cheesecake, and everything else I haven't had for the past 3 months. But I know that's how I got this way in the first place. If I were to do it one day I'm sure that it wouldn't hurt too much, but it'd be kind of depressing to gain a sudden 5 pounds and have to lose it again. Unfortunately being a male I don't care too much about clothes, so buying myself a "new wardrobe" isn't any type of an incentive, in fact it's more like a punishment to have to go clothes shopping. I like the clothes I have now and tend to like things to be a little baggy anyways. There's really nothing "weight dependent" that I can think of for a self reward, except food. That's always been my problem....I love food! I like to eat it, cook it, watch Food TV, discuss it, etc. Even being on a diet I still have Food TV on while I'm working. I don't snack and I'm not hungry, but I so look forward to the next meal when I get my next chance to eat something.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Slimfast for breakfast. Fried fish, clams, shrimp, french fries, and onion rings for lunch. Way to much fried food on one plate, but it tasted oh so good! A couple of tacitos for supper.
