180 - The Wall

Thoughts for today
For the couple weeks after I started this on New Years, it seemed like I was losing weight every day, but I pretty much have stayed at the same spot - 180 lb - for about 4 or 5 days now. So I'm sort of just breaking even, which I guess is better than gaining. 180 is one of those plateaus I typically have trouble getting off, but it will come in time.


Braeburn apple. 2 cups of black coffee.

Cajun place at the food court. Bourbon chicken and fried rice. Not the healthiest probably, but portions were not too large. Glass of water.

Split a single order of shrimp fajitas with the wife. Didn't eat the tortilla shells, guacamole, or sour cream, and limited myself to maybe 7-8 corn chips with salsa. Bottle of Michelob Ultra Lite.

Cascadian Farms fiber chocolate almonds granola bar. 3-4 figs. Just a few chocolate covered peanuts (Goobers).


  1. Looks like you did pretty well with the food today. Good job! I hate plateaus, but you'll find a way to get through it. A little more exercise or fewer cals? I don't know.. At the WW meeting, they told me that for every 10 pounds I lose, I have eat a certain number of points LESS in order to maintain weight loss. I thought that sucked, but then if you add in more activity, you can add more food...

  2. Yeah, plateaus suck. I'd kill for a beer right now,lol. :)
