So I got on the scale this AM for the first time since Friday.  I actually was expecting / hoping to see a smaller number than what I got.  While it’s a great thing that I went through the weekend without seeing the number increase I was really thinking I’d be down a bit since Continue reading “”

I woke up this morning and jumped on the scale as I do every morning.  While I can’t say that I was happy with the number that I saw, I can say I’m excited that it was less than the number the last time I wrote a post here.  That’s a good thing. It was Continue reading “”

I was not surprised to see the number on the scale this AM.  Since my last post I’ve had a couple of really rough days on the diet front: Thursday – post work drinks / dinner with a buddy at the Winking Lizard Friday – birthday celebration for my sister-in-law Saturday – wedding for my Continue reading “”

So I didn’t get a chance to write this post before midnight, so technically I’m writing this on Thursday, but this is Wednesday’s post.  Good eating day.  Green smoothie for breakfast on the way to work.  Skipped McDonald’s on the way in which is always a good thing.  There was a HUGE line this AM Continue reading “”

So I weighed in yesterday and I was back up to 237.5.  My goal weight hasn’t changed… I’m still shooting for sub-200 lbs.  This particular number is really daunting and I simply cannot seem to break through.  I had been down in the 220’s for a good 6 months or so, but sadly that’s once Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on 236.0 – And We’re Off… Again

So I went and returned from my big trip to Indianapolis…. When I returned and got on the scale Monday morning, the number was about what I expected – 237.0.  I’m happy to report that with a little bit of vigilance (and what I’m guessing was quite a bit of beer/water weight) I’m back to Continue reading “”

As per last night’s post, today’s number was not a surprise.  Back at it again today eating decently (sandwich for lunch, soup for dinner).  On top of a bad number this AM, I woke up feeling completely like shit.  Ears, alternating runny and stuffy nose, sore throat and sneezing galore.  As I write this tonight, Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on 236.0 – No Surprise

Was a good eating day yesterday… nearly carb free with the exception of some breading on the fish that the wife had prepped for dinner.  I’m starting to get into the groove when it comes to NOT eating garbage when I’m out for lunch.  It’s really just a CHOICE isn’t it? My boss asked me Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on 233.0 – Pitfall Avoided

Got the numbers going back in the right direction this AM.  It was a rough couple of days and at this point I don’t think I’ve got much in the immediate future in terms of potential pitfalls for the diet. Looking to really kick it into high gear between now and then time I go Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on 235.0 – Back In The Right Direction

After the weekend I had I expected a bad number on the scale this AM and unfortunately I got what I expected. Jim Thome came back to Cleveland on Friday evening.  Beer/dogs. Amanda’s cousin got married on Saturday night.  LOTS of beers. Dinner at a 5 Star restaurant to celebrate Pop’s 65th birthday. Bread, mashed Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on 236.0 Rough Weekend

So as I’d alluded to previously, I had a night out with a client/friend last night which included dinner and drinks while watching the Browns game.  I’d actually forgotten that prior to that, I also had a happy hour scheduled with another client.  So… yesterday was probably not the best day from a diet perspective.  Between Continue reading “”
