Day 148

Well, these last few weeks have not been great but it is holidays and I am not going to be going to families and turning down food. It would just be plain rude :D. Besides, you should all know my motto by now, “Don’t take life too seriously, you will never make it out alive.” But of course I go hard core afterwards again but it seems to be two or three days a week when I do it because I have at least two of every family function to go to. I am not minding so much though, I need a little break. Well, until later, time to keep losing :D.


Day 107

OK. I was very bad over Halloween weekend and went all the way up to 255 but I did manage to bring it back dawn to 247 which means I even lost weight this week dispite two days of INSANELY bad eating. I had went back on phase I of my diet until I got back down to 248 which is what my diet suggest as it will quickly remove the retained water and any actual weight gain that had happened. I hope I get some good weight loss this week. I am still going for 230 by the end of the year, I have almost 2 months to do it in and as long as I don’t do any more cheating of this level I should be just fine :D. Well, Hope you all had a great Halloween if that is your thing.

Day 102

OK. These last two weekends have been very bad. I broke even last week and this week was halloween and a BBQ at a friends house that I have not really seen in a long time. I admit, I overdid it big time. went up to 255 so I am going back on phase I until I am at least down to 245 and probably longer just to get back on track. I will admit, I did enjoy the extended vacation thought I did feel like crap by the end of the night on both days. I could not sleep very well last night either but all in all, I needed a big blow out and you know what I believe, “Don’t take life too seriously, you’ll never make it out alive.” I still have my goal of 230 by the end of the year :D. I am not going to be taking any major cheats like this again for a while, at most I will take one meal and one desert every now and then until I feel all is well.

Day 70

So far so good this week. Last week only a 3 pound loss but that is totally fine by me, this week so far 3 pounds, and that is with a diet vacation in there. This time though I did not have any soda, I did have a bit of OJ but that is most certainly better than Mt. Dew or something of the sort. Seems I am going to make my goal I hope of 255 by my birthday which is on the 12th of this month. I need to start posting here more again because I have not been using my Nivea as much and that stuff seems to really work. I am starting to loose my accountability I guess ? I don’t know, I mean I am still on the diet, I don’t cheat. and actually I could go to phase II now but I am going to stay on phase one at least until after my birthday. Phase II will pretty much double the amount of carbs that I am allowed to have.

Day 57

Well, I broke even this week after 1 and a half days of eating whatever I wanted. I guess it is better than gaining but I probably could have behaved better. It was the greatest weekend I have had in years so I think it was well worth it. I have a goal to to get to 255 by my birthday and hopefully 230 by new years day. We will see how it turns out.

Day 55

Well, so far I have not lost any weight this week. I am up to 265 but after my day and a half of diet vacation I had gained about 6 pounds of water weight which has been comming off at about 2 pounds a day. That was to be expected. I went a little overboard but that it to be expected when Street Machine Nationals is in town. I go crazy every year, I have had the best weekend I have had in years prolly, I feel like a new man, full of life, happy, content. A few days away from work did me good. More than good, Now I have two more off as well. Hell, I had a co-worker at work want to try and beat the tar out of my and all I could do was smile. That is how great I have been feeling. Well, I will keep you updated. I hope I get at least one pound of loss for the week. I am pretty sure I will.

Day 52

OK. It is time for a little diet vacation. It was so hard to hold off yesterday with all the cars in town. We went and looked at them and thinking mildly of going to the actually show but I doubt that because I am pretty poor at the moment and I can see the cars justĀ  fine driving down the road. Tonight I am going to have some sesame chicken from a local Chinese food place. Doubt that is actually a chinese dish (at least not how its made here) but it is very good. Looks way too much like cashew chicken, which by the way was invented in Springfield Missouri. I think it is just an american modification on an otherwise Chinese recipe but man is it good. If you have it in your area, DON’T GET IT!!!! I am telling you, I have had it a lot of places but once you get outside of Springfield it is not that good, in fact, most of it is just plain bad. I have yet to have the original recipe but I have found out where it is, if I can just remember. The place that invented it is no longer around but they did pass on there recipe to another business. Heck, even in springfield there are places that make bad cashew chicken. I will go a bit easy on my self all day but tonight is the official Diet vacation. I was at like 265 today, maybe holding water, maybe not getting enough calories. I am really not sure, I need to find out how many calories I need a day so that I do not put myself into starvation mode. Any suggestions I would be very glad to hear them.

Day 51

So the scale today said 263. That of course makes me very happy. I seem to be keeping up the 3 pounds a week and that is making me very happy. Tomorrow I get to have some sesame chicken. It is also just about time for me cheat meal. I know the sesame chicken is going to be a little cheat meal too but this is because there is a car show in town that comes every year and we always get together with our friends, watch the street machines and go out to eat. A tradition I have no intention on breaking. besides, I will count it as one of my cheat days since I have decided to take two a month now. This morning I measured and found I have lost 3.5 inches. I am very excited about that. I took some pics yesterday and compared them to the before pics. It is actually starting to become noticeable. Not as much as I would like but I am well on my way.
