Enjoying It While It Lasts

Starting Weight: 192.5, Goal Weight: 160, Current Weight: 186, Weight Lost: 6.5, Left to lose: 26.

Thoughts for today
I am happy with the weight loss I've had since starting on New Years Day. It's been surprisingly easier than I thought it would be to eat much smaller portions of the food I love and to stop eating candy bars and ice cream late at night. I still see all those candy bars in the freezer when I go in there for stuff, but I haven't felt the urge...yet. I know there will come a point when I "hit a wall" and the rapid weight loss stops, and it will become harder to stick with what I'm doing. But I'm enjoying the easy phase it while it lasts!

About 30 minutes of Wii Fit. I'm not sure how much practicing my golf swing can really be burning calories but it says I am.

Wife whipped up a omelet with 1 egg and 1-egg white with sliced portabello mushroom, grilled onion, and a sprinkling of low fat mozzarella cheese. 2 cups of black coffee. Glass of orange juice.

Leftover half of last night's dinner combo from Sakura. Chicken and Broccoli with steamed rice and half a spring roll. Glass of water.

Wife made a excellent pot of chili with 96% Lean ground beef. Added 8-10 fat free Saltines to a decent sized bowl. Had a small piece of low fat yellow cake with chocolate pudding frosting right out of the oven. Bottle of Michelob Ultra Lite.

Large Braeburn apple. 10 or so Reduced Fat Wheat Thins.


  1. I'm glad that your weight loss has been so easy! That's great! I agree that this is a great place to find inspiration and motivation, and I look forward to following your journey!


  2. Just found your blog. Looks like you're doing great so far! Very proud of you. I'm jealous that you're drinking beer and still losing, lol. I had to cut out my Killian's for the most part. Now I just drink it maybe one night out a month. The idea of the penetentiary-style trays is a good one! Hey, whatever works, right?! :)

  3. Oh one more thing....I noticed you shop at Publix like I do, so you must be in the South! I'm originally from Jax, FL and now I live in Georgia, North of Atlanta. Howdy neighbor! :)

  4. Thanks for dropping by Tammy, I'll start following your blog as well. Michelob Ultra Lite aint quite Killian's but I like it by far the best of the low-carb options out there. Guess the Publix gave me away, lol, we're in the Nashville, TN area. Let me know if you end up trying the penetentiary-style trays haha!
