It rubs the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again.

Tuesday, May 27, 2008

It rubs the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again.

I am up 1 pound from Fridays weight, I have been over calories since about Friday and I have that to blame. no worries I am sure I will take it off in a quick as I am back on track as of today and I was under calorie for Monday if only by a few, Mondays calories came in at 1454 total, Sunday I was in the area of about 1700 and Saturday I was around 1700 as well. I say "around" because I did not count exactly how many after dinner on both nights and both nights included copious amounts of watermelon and or popcorn. not terribly bad calories but calories none the less and I am up a pound to show for it. with that said I do believe that I may be up a bit because of all of the outside combined with the not adding extra fluid for the sweat and movement.

With that said we had a very busy weekend and by busy I mean lots of hanging around the yard or a park enjoying the weather. I have some pretty good color going on my face and head from all of the sun. Saturday was low key hung out in the yard mostly and not a whole lot of exercise etc, just a beer or 2 and some watermelon with some playing with kiddos mixed in, Then Sunday we went to a park with Grandpa (my wifes Dad) and looked at Hartford off of a hill through a telescope for a while until the kids got bored with it, and by kids I mean Me and Grandpa. Thats when wify saw an opening to say "Hey dad can you take the kids to the play ground while we go for a walk" so thats what we did, we ended up going back to the stone steps trail that I had found last time I was at the park and found out where it went...straight up! this is where some exercise came in, wify and I hiked up the trail to the end of it which ended up being the top of the hill that we were just on with the telescope so it was a short but all uphill trek that gave us both a decent workout on our legs and we were both breathing heavy. we decided to hike back through the woods instead of following the trail back and ended our walk/hike wandering through one of the gardens. all in all it was a nice relaxing day at the park that included some exercise, so exactly what we were looking for. then we spent Monday morning running a couple errands and the rest of the day in the back yard relaxing with the kiddos in the lawn chairs and tossing a ball around, over all it was a fun weekend with a little bit of exercise.

Now for some business, I am down 105 lbs (104 actually but I hit 429 on Sat and I like the way 105 sounds lol) and I feel great about it, I am doing more with the kids and wify, I hurt less, my back feels better than it has in a while and basically things are just easier, but I am starting to see some of the issues with the losing this much weight and have to admit that I am not enjoying that aspect of weight loss of this caliber. a photo was taken of me yesterday and I can see the "loose skin" issues starting to present themselves on my body. Here I am floating around feeling great about dropping this weight and bamn! a wall that I will have to deal with, a wall that frankly sucks, and theres not a thing that I can do about it but watch as my suit of skin gets as loose as the clothes in my closet. I can't help but feel like Buffalo Bill would love to get his hands on me to make a complete 3 piece suit but thats just my sense of humor making light of a situation that nothing can be done about, a trait all of us fat guys have I think. I told my wife last night that I wish it was Autumn so that I could just hide inside my hoodie until I buy some clothing that hides it better, I do not want to go out and spend a bunch of money on clothes that will not fit in 3 months so I am making due with the old clothing that I have in the closet that is smaller for now. when I started this whole weight loss thing I was in a 6x shirt and size 56 jeans were starting to get snug on me, I now wear a 5x shirt comfortably and a 4x fits me just not well, 4x is still too small but I am getting there, and I can get size 46 jeans to button and zip (which is awesome because thats what I was wearing when I met my wife and was the size I was when I was working out and running etc) but wouldn't wear them because they are still a bit tight around the waist, but 48's fit perfectly. I have a lot of size 52's and 46's and a few 50's and a pair or 2 of 48's so I am doing ok with pants, its the shirts that I am limited with for now and like I said I don't want to spend a lot of money on clothing that won't fit in 3 months, and for those of you that do not know, clothing in these sizes isn't cheap unfortunately for me, so the frumpy look is what I gots for now.

Here is the menu for Monday.


10:00 AM
1 banana 105
1 tbsp peanut butter 95

12:00 pm
16 oz chopped watermelon 144

3:00 PM
foot long subway club on wheat 640

5:00 PM
sugar free creamcicle 20

6:00 PM
2 cups of Dads home made soup 300
3/4 cup cooked white rice 150

Grand total of 1454 calories for Monday, and I am going to get back on track as far as my intake goes for the rest of the week. I am going to try and get out for a walk today before the weather gets here, we are suppose to get Thunder storms and wify said she heard hail today so after that starts no walk will be possible, and if not then its an inside workout, which I want to avoid as its humid today bleh. there you have my weekend and feelings on my weight loss thang in a few paragraphs. Thanks for following along with me and thanks for the support.

    I don't blame you on the clothes factor, I've been wearing a pair of very baggy pants for a while now. I might buy one pair of smaller pants every few months if they're on sale, otherwise I'm hopping around in clothes too big for me.

Yay for baggy clothes, can't wait till I can get rid of them all.

And congrats on the 105 lbs gone, that's fantastic!

  Ah, saggy baggy clothing. I went to the beach (I am out of town right now) yesterday in a saggy baggy swimsuit and hated it!! But, swimsuits for women are like $80. So, saggy baggy will have to do for now. That is the only "down" side of weight loss for me! LOL

  Sounds like a beautiful family weekend wohoo! Now about the 1 gain sorry could a be a tad happy hello Mr. Perfect I had to see that you are human and struggle too lol. Your pounds are flying off wohoo the pound will be gone plus another 5 probably by this weeks end! The skin thing is I know so Hard but, you cannot concentrate on that or it could steal your momentum and the joy you have in the amazing victories you are having! When I get overwelmed at the thought that my skin might not bounce back i look at surgery after pics and how great the people look after. Hey you didn't get fat over night the whole package you want might be a several step process weight loss, surgery, maintaining. You can do this the end result is you have your life back, your health and energy for your loved ones!!! Keep your heads up high you are overcoming wohoo!!!

7 more pounds lost this week!

Friday, May 23, 2008

This 1970 Indian Velocette weighs in at 430 pounds, and in my opinion is what a bike should look like

Weigh in day is upon us once again.

All week the weight seems to have been coming down steady, and for that I am appreciative. especially after the small drop from last week, which I was also appreciative because a loss is a loss is a loss. Talking to my wife a day or so ago I said something to the affect of how it is hard to believe that just a few months ago I was more than 100 lbs heavier than I am right now and that when I looked at myself in the mirror recently that I had seen a guy that I have not seen in a long while. There are lots of differences that are starting to show up some subtle, some not so subtle, for instance just last night I was laying on my back on the bed and wify came in and laid down on me to say hi like she always does and she said "oww" and shifted herself over a couple inches, and I just laughed because I knew that my rib had pushed against her and was uncomfortable so she had to adjust, those good ol ribs have not been an issue for a long while I have to say. right on down to the distance between ye old belly and the steering wheel in the car, I look taller as well, walking past a mirror last week I thought "wow I am looking all long" so with this more than 100 lbs comes a lot of things that are different.

This week as I have been leading up to has been a good one for the weight drop. I got on the scale this morning and it said 429.6 lbs, so of course I get on again and it says 430 lbs on the button, try number 3 says 429.6 lbs, so I shall call it 430 lbs for the week which is a 7 pound loss since Friday, 7 pounds! yesterday morning it was 429 lbs on the nose and I am sure if I wait 2 hours that I will be 429 lbs because I weigh less in the early afternoon than the morning, but the highest number of the morning is 430 so thats what it gets counted at. That is 104 pounds lost so far One Hundred four pounds! all I have left to say about it is...Cool..

Intake was good for Thursday, I stayed under calories and we had of a batch of Dads chicken soup for dinner along with some white rice, I am roasting a whole chicken today for dinner so I will have another carcass for a new batch of soup. wify wants me to try a southwestern style soup and of course I am who I am and I will not be looking up a recipe, wheres the fun in that? especially since I have such a good base of a recipe already so I may have a new recipe to post up soon.

Over all I am very happy with this weeks number and just generally happy about how I am coming along with the whole weight loss thang, Thanks for reading along I do appreciate the support.

    i agree about the "subtle differences" and it's not just about the weight. today i was getting a pedicure and i always had a hard time trying to keep my leg lifted long enough even when i weighed 50 pounds less than now. but not today,i even noticed only at the second leg that i'm keeping it lifted without help from hands and there's no pain and hard breathing. i'm glad to hear about your progress,i think you are on that no turning back road ,i don't think you'll ever gain weight again(unless you'll want bigger muscles emoticon). this is the feeling i get from your words

Green tea, food addiction and more.

Thursday, May 22, 2008

This past Saturday we bought 8 gallons of green tea when we went shopping, it was on sale for $2.50 per gallon so we bought all that was in the store. I cracked open the last of the bottles this morning so unless I go back out shopping I will be having home brewed green tea for the rest of the week, which isn't bad, just not as convenient. I mention the tea because through this entire change its the one thing that I go to when I want to have something with zero calories that I actually really really enjoy the taste of. I was drinking green tea before I decided to lose weight and I think I have grown to like it even more now than ever. If I am drinking it, its going to be green tea or water, I don't think I have had anything but that in at least a 2 month period, barring a random and not often beer here and there. Green tea has a ton of positive reactions with our bodies, the Catechins in the tea have been shown to have anticancer and anti inflammatory properties which that alone makes it worth drinking, then go ahead and add that it has been shown that it affect cholesterol levels in our bodies in a positive way and boost metabolism as well, so whats the problem? why aren't YOU drinking it?

My intake for Wednesday was good and I stayed under calories, I had 465 calories at the end of the day that I had not used up and wify was making popcorn so I had me a Gigantic bowl with some omega 3 spread and cheddar seasoning on it. though I did not add up the calories for this exactly, I know it was not close to the 465 that I had left so I am under calories, I just don't know exactly how much. I did have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch and that was my first one in 4 months, now I miss them. otherwise all is well and I am on track with this change, which as I type this I realize is a way of life now, I do not have to try and stick to it, I do not crave the "bad" foods any more, I mean would I like to eat a bacon and onion pizza with a big glass of milk and some jalapeņos on the side? sure, but the difference is that I realize that its not good for me and choose not to. it is amazing how easy this is when you just let go of the, dare I say "addiction" to food, and just eat reasonably instead of gorging yourself with fried chicken, mashed potatoes, ice cream, cake and the likes. food is for nutrition not for recreation, and that does not mean that you can never have a good old fashioned home cooked high fat meal, it just means that it cannot be the norm. Thats what I have on my mind this morning and this is the end of the page, so again I thank you for following along and I thank you all for your comments and emails and support etc etc etc, come back again now Ya'll hear.

    Hey -- thanks for the add. :) I'm going through your most recent blog entries so sorry if I bombard with comments.

I just had to say -- I used to REALLY REALLY just eat solely to enjoy the feeling/taste/flavor of food in my mouth and as much of that as possible PLEASE! And it took me some time to understand that before I was eating for enjoyment -- which is not to say that now we can't enjoy our food but we understand that is not the PURPOSE of it and that if we let that alone be our guide to what we eat, we are really doing our bodies a disservice. Congratulations on having that understanding!!!

    I hear ya,
Thankfully it is easy to eat in moderation, once your body gets out of the habit of gorging. I find with my eating that if I eat more than a sensible portion I physically feel sick; I don't remember that happening when I was at or close to my heaviest weight- I could eat all day long (getting 3rd or 4th helpings per meal- then snacking 30minutes after that).

Way to go brother!

Tuesday and some Salmon

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

I would hate to jinx myself but the weight loss gods are on my side this week it would seem, last week was a 1 pound loss and since then I have dropped...well lets just say I am happy with it, You will have to wait until Friday to find out how kind they have been to me.

I am still doing all of the same things minus the walking and bike for the past week, I have only gone on 1 or 2 walks this week total. I am testing something out that I am suspecting happens with my body. I am noticing that if I work out steady like and week after week that the weight steadily comes off, it has come off each week since starting, I have yet to have a negative or no loss week since starting but when I workout hard one week and then have an easy week I seem to lose more per week than working out hard the entire time.

Dinner last night was fabulous...did I just say fabulous? wow it must have really been good and I finished up the day with 1453 calories. we had Salmon fillets and I prepared them with the recipe that I posted in an earlier post, we had sweet potato fries with them and I prepared the entire dish from taking the fish from the paper wrap to the table in about 20 minutes. I don't know if I was just craving it or if it was actually better this time but man it was good and I had a huge portion of it. I am actually considering switching to a fish only diet and abandoning chicken and Turkey all together, with that said, I am making BBQ rubbed chicken for dinner tonight with rice and either corn or Broccoli, or maybe a salad, hmmm decisions decisions.

Other than that its business as usual today, besides the later than usual post of course, Thanks for following along and I wanted to put it out there that if anyone that reads this needs help, support, or just an ear to listen, let me know.

  Oh! We had halibut with myer lemon, crimini onions, roasted barley with wild mushrooms and steamed baby vegetables for dinner last night-we have similar tastes. I make sweet potato fries with coriander, oregano and fennel-they are so incredible.
We live for fish too. Sadly, salmon is over $20 a lb here, if thats not portion control, I don't know what is.

I love it when sparkers act on what the body is telling them...when you lose the fear of change... seeing what happens if you do this or that...if we listen close enough we just might get it!

100 pounds lost! a Milestone = MINE!!!!

Sunday, May 18, 2008

I took this picture halfway through typing this post out. it now says 433.4 lbs and thats after lunch and breakfast and more than 1/2 gallon of green tea today. You can see my size 14's Just hang off the edge of the scale :)

I was going to leave this post for my main blog at but since its a significant milestone here it is :)

100 pounds lost as of today

Today I have been very lazy, just hanging around the house so I figured I would hop on the scale and see what she said, well this morning it said 433.6 pounds and in my usual routine I get off and try again, 433.6 pounds again, one last time for accuracy sake and bamn! 433.6 pounds so it is official! that is 100 pounds that I have lost since Jan first 2008 101 lbs if I take that its under 434, we shall call it 100 pound at this point since I round up. Just 139 days worth of moderate eating and some more movement and I weigh 100 pounds less, who wouldda thunk it would have been this fast? this do I dare say, easy? I was thinking this morning after getting on the scale about what I may have been doing if not for this getting healthy thing that I started in Jan, maybe just sitting around and watching tv? perhaps sitting on the back porch watching my kids play instead of Playing WITH them? and the little things that get taken for granted by normal sized people, or even me at this weight are a plenty, four and a half short months in my more than 3 decades that I have lived on this planet. that four and a half months has likely given me more years in this world, and at the cost of what? some cake? a few giant servings of ribs? its amazing and I can't think of one thing that I could have been doing that would have been a better choice than what I've done in these last few months. Imagine this if you will for a minute, I have just lost 100 pounds off of my body, even with that great loss I still have 159 pounds to lose to reach the goal of 275 lbs that I have set for myself, is that 275 lb goal ambitious? I think so but so what? if I had stated on Jan 1st that I would lose 100 lbs in 139 days you might have thought that ambitious as well but I did it.

I do think that my Ideal goal weight should be roughly 275 lbs, and the way I came up with this number is that my father stands 6'1'' tall and he weighs 270lbs currently and to look at him I do not think anyone could or would say that he is overweight by any means. I have the same build as he does and we are both muscular, besides the fact that I am 4 inches taller than he is we look alike. but I also think that after I lose as much fat a I can that I will have a skin issue to deal with and the skin removal procedure can take off a good chunk of weight so I may actually bottom out with the loss at a higher number than the 275. I AM shooting for 275 lbs on my own but nothing is set in stone and I will roll with the punches and make changes as necessary.

So thats it, My Sunday post, The day that I lost 100 lbs, you were there, I want to thank anyone that has been reading along with my blog to this point the support was and is helpful as well as appreciated.

100 pounds less.

  emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonthats is just amazing how quick it came off! As for what you goal weight will be you alone will no what feels good on your body! My husband is 6'2" and weighs 240 he has alot of muscle that would normally be considered to high of weight but he had no extra weight on him. glad you take rest days thats usually when I lose after a week of hard workouts! As for the skin issue I have read several articles that a very high percentage of people losing 100 pounds or more need surgery after wards you are not alone. I know it might be something I face. Not really a big deal though rather go through that than be trapped in a prison of fat any day! Keep up the good work and are you celebrating you so need a reward woohoo!!!!!! I am thrilled for you and you family!!!!

  WTG! But i have to say that this statement...

Just 139 days worth of moderate eating and some more movement and I weigh 100 pounds less, who wouldda thunk it would have been this fast?

More movement? Your workouts are intense, you worked your azz off! I have been following along, and reading your blog on blogspot.. you have done a LOT more than just adding some "Movement" You rock, and you deserve every pound you lost!

I like that you had the presence of mind to take a picture of the scale at the time it happened. I'm going to have to remember that one.

Keep up all the good work! You are just starting to experience all the good and fun you're going to have as you watch your scale numbers get smaller and smaller and smaller...

    YAY!!!!!!!!! FOR YOU!!!!!!! How's that song go?

"What a difference 139 days makes..."

I know we don't know each other but we are both taking on the commitment to be healthy and fit and I know how you had to make good choices every single day several times a day to get to the place where you are today!


I have never sent a goodie to anyone. (Still kind of new on SP) I am going to send you one! As soon as I figure out how to!

Keep on keeping on!
