This is really what it boils down to. No. Fast. Food. It can’t be a once a day thing. It can’t be a once a week thing. Once a month? Maybe but even that it’s probably too much (at least until I get to my goal weight). Today is day two. Tomorrow will be day Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Leave a Comment on 239.5 – No Fast Food

This is a weird entry.  The number on the scale this AM was good. Down from the 3 lbs from the 237 I posted the other day and getting ready to change that trend line is a great thing.  But I know that today is going to be tough and tomorrow may not show the best Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Leave a Comment on 234 – Worried About The Day Ahead / Not A Good Start

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 “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Leave a Comment on 235.5 – Kinda Bummed

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 “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Leave a Comment on 236.0 – No Surprise Here

Had I written this post yesterday it would have had a drastically different tone.  When I got on the scale yesterday morning I was 233.0.  I went through the day yesterday with a great sense of optimism.  And then I made bad choices. 3 sausage McMuffins for breakfast burger, fries for “snack” after work 3 Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Leave a Comment on 235.0 – The Downside To Weighing Yourself Every Day

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 “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

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

So when I got on the scale yesterday morning I weighed in at a whopping 229.0.  Uh oh… not good.  But honestly I wasn’t all that shocked.  Over the weekend we went to a first communion party for Nadia where I drank too much beer and ate too much pizza & pasta.  Then on Sunday Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Leave a Comment on 227.5 – Time For Evasive Action

A month ago I made a huge change in my life… I decided that it was time to lose some weight and get much healthier.  At the time I was eating a bunch of garbage, drinking too much beer and doing essentially nothing physically (other than chasing my kids around).  Since then I’ve been to Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”

Leave a Comment on Frustration Setting In

Went to the gym for the 4th time this week this AM.  This is now my routine.  It’s a part of my day.  For years I’ve been struggling with my weight and it’s FINALLY time to do something about it. I’m feeling good but I’m worried that the weight loss that I’m seeing isn’t going Continue reading “https://www.primeverdict.com/wp-content/themes/gridd”
