The Wife has been telling me for quite some time that I need to have a plan. I need to have goals. I need to have something concrete in place. She’s absolutely right. If you look back at recent posts the lowest I’ve been is 237. Today I’m 241 (Yesterday to be exact… I didn’t Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on 241.5 – The November Nine

So I got on the scale today… and it wasn’t good. But it wasn’t a surprise either. I had my first drink of the month on Thursday when I went out to dinner with a client and then went to watch the Browns game with some friends. I then followed that up with more drinks Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on 241 – Rededication With A Partner

This is a difficult post to write… The last time I posted was on May 14th. That’s nearly 3 months ago to the day. I was going to do some soul searching. I was asking about carbs, fast food and alcohol. The same 3 issues I find myself asking about today. Since that post I’ve Continue reading “”

If I look back over this last year of weight loss, I have to be relatively happy.  I’m actually a couple of pounds heavier than I was say in June of 2012 but I’m WAY better off than I was in October 2012.  I’ve lost, and kept off, 10 lbs since earlier this year, though I Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on Carb Cutting? – 229.5

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 “”

Leave a Comment on 235.5 – Kinda Bummed

Here we are… another Friday and the number on the scale really hasn’t moved.  I went out on Wednesday evening and had beers which is never a good thing for the waistline but have kept my other “splurges” to a minimum. I took a long introspective look at myself the other day and I realized Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on 235.5 – A Week Of Standing Pat

I have to say I was a bit disappointed when I stepped on the scale this morning.  I didn’t stop on the way home from work (which is rare) and I was pretty pumped.  For dinner I had a couple of pieces of leftover pizza and I made the boys and I some flank steak cause Amanda Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on 236.5 – Frustrated

Was tired as hell this AM. Had to be at work for a 7:30 AM meeting which wouldn’t have been so bad except for the fact that the Indians have a 12:05 PM game today and the parking was a bitch… irritating. We had planned on going to the Lake Erie Captains game tonight but Continue reading “”

BREAKFAST: bowl of cereal with milk two pancakes with syrup water LUNCH: tuna salad on lettuce water fried rice pickles This was the “get rid of everything in the fridge” lunch. DINNER: Enchiladas Super Rancheros from El Campesino Talk about a bad dinner choice. Had some super bad heartburn after dinner for the rest of Continue reading “”

Not sure why but I was having a brutal bit of acid reflux yesterday. Being an admitted hypochondriac, I of course starting thinking the worst. I tell you, when I get like this it’s like I’m just waiting to die. This obviously is a TERRIBLE way to go through life (especially with an awesome wife Continue reading “”

Leave a Comment on Another Battle With Heartburn… Time For A Change

Kind of irritated today… didn’t eat any carbs yesterday and I didn’t drop so much as half a pound.  So, I figure one of two things have happened… either hidden carbs (which I kind of doubt) or some fat is finally turning into muscle from all the lifting, running and swimming I’ve been doing.  In Continue reading “”
