Day 743: Catching Up With You!


Hi. How are you?

I know, I know, it’s been a while. Let me show you what I have been doing…

I got these awesome bad boys, (You like?)

This came in the mail from the awesome folks at Weight Watchers,

And I drew this on my whiteboard at work because I need to buy some Halloween decorations for my office.

Now that we got that all figured out, let’s talk. I have been really crummy with my eating lately. I’m just hungry…a lot. I’ve been eating veggies and fruit a lot more, but meaningless carbs seem to rule my life. What’s even worse is that I don’t even feel like I deserve to have a lose tomorrow, I really don’t. This past week has proved to me that you really can’t lose weight without both diet and exercise. Sure I ran 7 miles on Saturday, played racquetball on Wednesday and did some weight training on Sunday, but if the calories aren’t in check, it just doesn’t work. So that’s where I’m at right now. While I did do better today, I still ate a cupcake, two cookies and some candy. The thing is, I used to be able to say no to sweets when I was on my weight loss game, but now I even go out of my way to get candy from a co-worker’s office (let me clarify, I don’t steal their candy, there’s just a communal jack-o-latern.) So with this time of the year coming up, the sweet temptation is going to be there and I need to be better, especially because when I break 200 pounds, I’m going to buy an awesome spin bike so I really won’t have an excuse to work out. No matter what, there will always be an exercise machine waiting to be used in our spare room. Right now, I’m about 28 pounds away, which seems like nothing when I’m on my weight loss game, but an eternity on days like today. Tomorrow is going to be a rough weigh-in, I know it will be, but whatever happens, you will see points of my food. Now I’m ready to start. See ya tomorrow.

  1. I have been gaining back weight for the past couple of weeks. And, I know it is because I am eating and not exercising. And, when I say eating. . . I am not making good choices at all! So you are not alone. But, I am back on point starting today!

  2. Weight loss seems like an inverse exponential curve. Also, as you get older, your body seems to weigh more. http://usmilitary.about.com/od/army/l/blmaleweight.htm, even the military weight standards reflect that.

    My goal is to try to be healthy. I kind of commented on a picture on your facebook about how much different you look! I still think your body needs to adjust to your new weight. I am exercising so I can live another day, and be healthier.

    As you start running more, you will require more food (protein), so maybe stuff with protein which isn’t meat.

    Sweets are good too! I am assuming you don’t drink pop, right?

    • Yeah, I mean, it’s still adjusting but I should be able to hold off the cravings and stuff like that because I have done it before. I think more of it is that I’ve have gotten a little lazy/complacent. But I’m working on it. And no, I drink Diet Coke, but I haven’t had a real soda in a long time.
