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 jalapeños 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.

As Ever

    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!

I recently had the pleasure of trying green tea with cambucha (spelling?) It's a Japanese mushroom. Anyway, the stuff was really good! It was almost like a ginger ale.

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.
Wow, this whole reply has been about food (it's my lunch time)

    Yum...I would eat fish every day too

Love blackened salmon...aahh gees i am salivating!

Interesting observation on activity level and loss...

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!

Always great thoughts
Always a good read my friend

Blessings...

  I actually followed a pescatarian diet for about 6 months, I ate fish and other seafood's as my only meat source, loved it!

My fave is tilapia pan grilled with Pam Olive Oil Flavor, then seasoned with cracked black pepper a little season all, and lemon juice squeezed on before serving, add to that a spinach salad with your fav dressing, and voila! Yummy.

Your doing great, cha cha cha, doing a little dance for ya!

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 http://zeusmeatball.blogspot.com 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.

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!!!!!!

Squeaked out a 1 pound loss this week.

Friday, May 16, 2008


This Honda CBF600 weighs in at 437 lbs

Squeaked out a loss for the week

I feel that determination is to blame for the loss this week, I started the week off by being higher last Saturday and then Sunday I had that terrible meal at Friendly's on Mothers day and I hung around 440 lbs all week. Wednesday after seeing how much I was up I made the decision to just work out and see where the cards fall. This morning I woke up and straight to the scale to see how it all turned out, I hop on and she whispers 437.2 pounds this is good I think to myself, so I step off to get a second opinion, second time on it says the same number 437.2 pounds, so it appears that I have a 1 pound loss for the week, I'll take it. Submit you will fat, I am the one making the decisions now. Honestly if there was no loss at all this week I wouldn't have been too upset, I just said to my wife last night that I am ok with the weight and it not about a number but about the way I feel and what I am doing that matters.


My intake was decent for the day even though it was heavy with breads, ending at 1375 calories, Dinner was a bit stout but as it was mostly turkey and sweet potatoes I am not too worried about it. we made seasoned grilled turkey burgers on 80 calorie rolls with onions, pickles lettuce and tomato, and for a side I made sweet potato fries and a huge glass of green tea, I was very happy as that is quickly becoming one of my favorite meals since starting this new lifestyle. here is the menu from Thursday.

05/15/08

Breakfast
7:45 AM
4oz deli turkey 120
2 slices whole wheat bread 140
1 tbsp miracle whip 35
sliced tomato 10
blueberry green tea 40

12:00 PM
small apple 60

Lunch
3:00 PM
2 boiled eggs 140
lite roll 80
less than 1 tbsp miracle whip 25
small dill pickle 5
tiny bit newmans own lite honey mustard dressing 10

Dinner
6:00 PM
8oz ground turkey burger 320
2 light rolls 160
condiments 30
8oz sweet potato fries 200

Grand total of 1375 calories for the day, and this week is going to be treated as a gateway to harder workouts, I have been playing with some light weights and riding the bike regularly (which we may have run into a problem but that is for another time) and walking when I can. I am one pound lighter which mean one pound stronger and one pound closer to 100 lbs lost, I am just three pounds away from that century mark and looking forward to being able to say that I lost 100 lbs, and every pound of it was lost on my own, no miracle pill, no expensive diet plan or stack of books. I am feeling good about making this decision and the results are huge.

Carry on...

As Ever

Its a State of mind

Thursday, May 15, 2008


There is something in the air today; upon waking up I felt the need to move. So I did. We were expecting rain so I left the house early and went on a 2 mile walk to get the blood moving, upon reaching my door again I went straight for the bike, 25 minutes later I had a decent sweat going and onto the dumbbells, Concentration curls, Hammer curls, One handed triceps extensions, Behind the head triceps extensions, followed by 50 push ups 20-15-15. All before noon, Tired, weak and sweating I feel great. Will I be sore tomorrow? Quite possibly, and most likely, but it will be the kind of pain that makes a person want more of the same. I do miss my heavy bag, maybe I will have to look into picking one up, ending this workout with some time hitting a heavy bag would have been the ending it needed. There’s a 6’5’’ 438 pound freight train coming through, step back now madam we wouldn’t want anyone to get hurt. Hey kid It’s a state of mind, could you pick up your pity and step aside now son, I have things to do.

  To comment upon your comment on my SP--from everything I've read about Whey Protein, it doesn't cause weight gain, so I guess your comment left me kinda confused. No matter, it's no biggie.

Anyway, congrats on your success and in sticking with your fitness routine. Hope you find a bike seat that is more comfortable.

    Man with that sort of energy you're lucky your significant other didn't hand you a can of paint or vaccum and tell you to 'go at it!"

  Was wondering...are you drinking a protein drink to help with muscle soreness? I do this and it really helps. It's not required of course, but I find that since I don't get enough protein, the drink really helps. I buy Designer Whey Protein, as whey protein is, IMO, the best type of protein. Of course you'd have to research to decide for yourself.

Just thought this might help.
