The Monday after a terrible food weekend.

Monday, June 02, 2008


The Monday after

Monday is here and back to business I must go, Saturday we did our beginning of the month bulk shopping trip, and Sunday we went to my Mother in laws house for dinner which proved to be a relaxing day that took me completely off of my regularly scheduled intake plan. Saturday I came in at calories, though I do not know exactly how many I had on Saturday because of some late night popcorn, the calories on my excel sheet say 1095 and I would be very surprised if I had more than 400 calories worth of popcorn so I will call Saturday under calories, we watched "The Pianist" with Adrian Brodey, it is an older flick but I have to say that it was one of the best movies I have seen in a while, I really enjoyed it a lot, if you have not seen it I would recommend it for sure, its the story of a Jewish Pianist and how he survived Warsaw during the Nazi invasion. it is a little bit of a long movie, about 2 and a half hours but very much worth the time in my opinion 9.5 out of 10, and here is the menu for Saturday.

05/31/08

Breakfast
11:00 AM
3/4 of a zone bar 175

12:00 PM
1 banana 105
1 tbsp peanut butter 95

Lunch
2:30 PM
1 pear 85

Dinner
6:30 PM
6oz deli turkey 180
3 slices whole wheat bread 210
1oz tings 160
1.5 tbsp miracle whip 45
sliced tomato 15
ketchup 15
large dill pickle 10

10:00 PM
Big ol bowl of popcorn

Sunday was a bad day for the intake, Breakfast was a deli turkey sandwich at around 10:30 am followed by a zone bar on the way out the door around noon, My wife bought a coffee coolata from dunkin donuts around 2:00 pm and I drank at least 1/4 of that while driving around looking at a house my mother in law may be buying, upon getting back to my Mom in laws place her boyfriend offered me a beer and I turned him down until he was pouring his and he made the offer again, it was a Belgium wheat beer that has hint of orange to it and was served like a Corona, except an orange slice in place of the lime, its a very light smooth beer and the orange...well lets just say 5 beers later I was sitting by the fire pit in the back yard making and consuming smores, doh! Dinner was the same because it was post beer, I did not count what I ate and I did just eat pretty much what I wanted to, Shrimp and Scallop shishkabobs and BBQ chicken, sweet potatoes, corn on the cob and a salad, hey what can I say? its nice to indulge once in a while. I won't pretend to be able to even take a close guess at what my intake was for Sunday so it shall remain an unknown.

I hope everyone else had as nice a weekend as I did I hope not as calorie filled but thats another story. everything is still on track with the weight loss otherwise and because of this weekend I am going to take it easy this week with the intake and try and eat as good as possible to try and counteract some of the bad intake from Sunday. look for a recipe on here very soon, maybe a little later this afternoon. keep on keepin on and remember that its only life, enjoy it while ya can.

    Oh Lord I used to drink the you know what out of Blue Moon when I was in college. Like it was goin' out of style. Like I had a thirst I couldn't quench. Whew. Reason #456 why I was overweight and still gaining?! Haha. Anywho, it sounds like a good weekend!

  "The Pianist" is in my top 20 of all time. Love it!!

One thing I like about you is that you call a duck a duck...meaning, if you have a little off-kilter moment, you acknowledge it and MOVE ON. I am working on being like that! YOU GO!!

  Great attitude yesterday behind you start out the week doing what you know to do. Next time you might want to log those cals just to make you aware of how much you indulged. When I write it down it helps me to binge lighter the next time!!!

    I enjoyed "The Pianist" too. Great movie!
You blew it with the food, but the good thing is that you know you did. Tracking food makes a huge difference because we can see what we did and change it.
You the man!

    I'm glad to know that even the great slip sometimes... Especially when they are so motivational (as you are) that they say ah, well, and get back on track! THANK YOU!!!!!! I slipped up MAJORLY on Saturday, very similar to your Sunday, and when I tracked close to what I had eaten, it ended up being over 3,000 calories. :( But Sunday was a new day and I got RIGHT back on track, spending all day making healthy recipes for the next few weeks' lunches and stayed a bit under my calories while being full all day. :D Plus, today is day 6 of my quitting smoking and I feel great! :) Thanks again - you really are an inspiration to all of us DONEys... :)

    Sunday is no big deal trust me. I do that once a week, eat what I want. As time has progressed instead of stuffing my face, I watch what I eat but I indulge & go over just a lil with one thing I really want. I went over yesterday by two something cuz I wanted more Edy's Yogurt Blends Ice Cream. (Try the Pralines Caramel Crunch...awesome)

I wish u nothing but the best this week & I know you will be posting about ur weightloss by ur weigh in.

Into the 20's!! dropped another 3 this week :)

Friday, May 30, 2008


This 2002 Honda 919 weighs in at 427 lbs, this happens to be one of the bikes that I am considering buying when I hit my goal weight.

You will have to go to zeusmeatball.blogspot.com/ to see what weighs as much as I have lost because spark only lets me put one photo up.

Weighing in

Another Friday has come to Us so another day to record ye old weight, its funny to me that I choose a day of the week to represent my accomplishments for said week, it is after all just a day in the sea of days but it shall remain. This week I thought I was going to have a terrible week as last weekend I was very much not "on track" as far as my eating went, but I am happy with my loss for the week, this morning I hopped on the scale and it reported back to me that I weigh 427 pounds on this fine Friday morning, that is a 3 pound loss from last Friday, Not bad for a week that I honestly thought was going to be my first gain week. this 3 pound loss this week brings me to 107 total pounds lost to date, not bad for a guy thats not buying into the "miracle diet" craze eh? I thought that I would put an update on how wify was doing on todays post as well, she is down to 190 lbs as of this morning which is a total loss of 46 lbs since Jan 1st. She looks great and I am equally happy for her as I am for myself for losing all of this weight, collectively we have dropped 153 pounds off of ourselves in just 5 months thats more than both of our children weigh combined! Moderate exercise and diet is proving to be the way to drop this weight for me as well as my wonderful wife.

This weekend we have been invited to dinner at my mother in laws place, we are either having scallops and shrimp sishkabobs, or salmon steaks depending on the weather, were suppose to get some rain tomorrow and if that happens salmon will be on the plate. I am looking forward to a walk around the lake so I do hope the rain does not ruin that part of the visit for me. otherwise nothing in our plans for the weekend. My intake has improved from last weekend, as I said I was not "on track" then, but this one will be better. Thursday My intake was good and I ate a big ol pile of watermelon late in the day just to get in my calories as it was almost 8pm and I was still almost 500 calories under. Here is the menu for Thursday.

05/29/08

Breakfast
9:45 AM
smart ones meal 230
whole wheat english muffin 100
omega 3 spread 25

Lunch
2:30 PM
1 progresso soup 120
1/2 cup rice 100

4:00 PM
sugar free jello and cool whip 50

Dinner
6:30 PM
1/2 cup kidney beans 120
3/4 cup chopped broccoli 30
3oz chicken 180
3/4 cup white rice 150

7:45 PM
21 oz watermelon 189
6oz sweet potato 150

Grand total of 1444 calories for the day which is right where I wanted it to end for the day. I do need to start walking regularly again, I took more than a week off because I want to try this cycling one week on one week off with the exercise thing and see if it makes the weight come off in bigger chunks. This week is a hardcore exercise week so I look forward to being tired, sore and sweaty and I plan on having a smile on my face the entire time. Thanks for following along.

This might sound odd, so you are warned, But when thinking about my weight loss I lately feel like I have started over and its because I am at a small number again, and what I mean when I say that is I am 100 lbs lost plus whatever I am above, last Friday I weighed in at 430 lbs which is a 104 lb loss, well I am stuck on the 4 lbs. see I told ya odd but I just can't get past feeling that way about it and I know that it is silly. I will just have to wait until I am in the double digits to feel good about the weight again, and yes I know that I am already in triple digits, I know its a mental thing.

I have been back on track this week as far a calories go because I feel like I let this whole past weekend get a little out of hand and went above too many days, so this week (since Tuesday anyway) I have been going a little light on the calories to help the average for the week go down a bit which my Excel sheet will tell me on Sunday if I have succeeded with that. I am into the twenties with this mornings weigh in so I hope to have a decent number come tomorrow morning for the "official" weigh in for the week, I am looking forward to it. here is my menu from Wednesday.

05/28/08

Breakfast
10:15 AM
2 whole wheat english muffins 200
sliced tomato 15
omega 3 spread 25

11:15 AM
1 pear 85

Lunch
2:45 PM

6 oz baked sweet potato 150
1.5 cup chopped broccoli 60

9:00 PM
1.5 dannon light yogurt 90


Grand total of 1245 calories

I am just a guy that has had enough with being a "fat guy" and had enough with worrying about things that should not be worried about at my age, death being one of those things. in five short months I have lost more than 100 pounds of fat off of my body and have more than that still to lose and have improved just about every aspect of my life where weight could effect it. Lots of people have emailed me, and a lot more have left comments here or in private messages on a couple forums that I am a member of and I wanted to say thanks to every one of the people that have taken the time to do any or all of those things I just mentioned, it does help and it is a great tool in keeping accountable to know that these people, You people are there reading along and taking the time to send those messages out to a total stranger. So Thank you

    You are doing AWESOME!! Keep up the good work. I actually look forward to seeing what you have done. I wish it were as easy for the women to lose the weight as it is for men. Once I get the first 10 lbs off then it almost stops. Very frustrating to say the least. But, you are a great inspiration to all of us no matter what! Keep going it (you) will only get better. emoticon

    Perception is a tricky thing -- but you're noticing that your focus is a bit 'off' and that is what will get you through. Wow you've hit a great milestone. Perhaps you need to give yourself a treat ... new walking shoes or a new DVD to remind yourself what an amazing job you are doing. You are getting by on such a small amount of calories - maybe you can adjust and give yourself a bit more and just add a few minutes of workout as a treat. Just keep mixing things up and you'll keep right on going. In a way, getting down to another level really is a brand new journey .. but its being taken by a stronger, more experienced man. Yahoo!

  I totally get it - mine is about the lowest number of the last two digits of my actual weight. Once I break out of the 250's, I'll be stoked again but once I reach say 244, I'll be like - "alright, let's move it!". It's a mental thing and I think that's what challenges me and that "4" may challenge you each time to keep going - that or we just don't like the number 4. emoticon

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.

05/26/08

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

12:00 pm
16 oz chopped watermelon 144

Lunch
3:00 PM

5:00 PM
sugar free creamcicle 20

Dinner
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.

As Ever

    People tell me I look taller, too. :) And at 6'2" I'm like, DANG! But actually I think it's more so that my weight was making me look shorter before.

    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
