This 1985 GSX550E weighs in at 423 lbs, my current weight.
and as always check out my daily blog @ zeusmeatball.blogspot.com/ to see what weighs as much as I have lost so far.
Can it be another weigh in day already?
I am surprised at my number for this week, because I did nothing in the way of exercise and I had the bad Sunday dinner with the beers etc etc and yet I managed to pull off a four pound loss for the week, I weighed in at 423 pounds this morning and with that I am 111 pounds lighter than I was 5 months ago. I have a goal to be under 400 pounds by the end of August, I have a wedding to attend and my Mother is coming for a visit from CA and it would be nice to be 399 or less by then, that gives me roughly 11 weeks to get under 400 lbs. I think that is a very attainable goal yet still not a sure thing, none of this weight loss is a sure thing but you get the idea.
My intake for Thursday was 1501 calories, I would say thats right on the button as far as my intake goal goes. my back feels better today and the pain is just a dull thump when I hit that not so sweet spot so I look forward to the weekend without pain in my back, I will keep my fingers crossed with that. here is the menu for Thursday.
2 Multigrain english muffins 200
omega 3 spread 40
sliced tomato 10
12 oz watermelon 108
2 cups home made soup 325
1/2 cup cooked white rice 100
1 can tuna 150
3 slices whole wheat bread 210
1 tbsp miracle whip 35
sliced tomato 10
1 dill pickle 10
7oz sweet potato fries 175
12oz watermelon 108
Grand total of 1501 calories for the day and 4 pounds gone this week, I am happy with that and now I am anxious to get below 420 lbs and into the teens, and then onto the single digits and finally into the 300's! I think once I am in the 300's I will get a new spark and get really motivated to get down as low as possible, I am motivated now but man I can't tell you how the 300's are going to feel. Thats it for todays post kids, make sure to come visit again tomorrow, same bat time same bat channel...Da na na na na na na na Da na na na na na na na Da na na na na na na na Fat Man!...but not for long, Thanks for reading.

Thursday already? where did this week go?
To start this entry I would like to say that the soup I made yesterday was insanely good! I used my regular chicken soup recipe but made lots of changes, in fact the only thing that was used from that recipe really was boil the chicken carcass to make the broth and 3 onions, everything else was different. lots of onions, peppers and hours later the house smelled great! when my son came home from school in the afternoon he said "mmmmm something smells good" and then when wify came home from work a very similar comment came from her. the soup was a bit spicy for my daughter even though she did eat it, she did not eat a full bowl. I will 100% be making the soup this way again as soon as the 4 quarts in the freezer and the one in the fridge is gone, I shall call it Spicy chicken chili soup! look for the recipe in a later post.
Intake was a bit low coming in at 1279 total calories, I was not hungry all day and didn't realize that I was low until later in the evening. so around 8:00 pm I had a large amount of chopped watermelon, I figured its mostly fluid so it wouldn't hang around long. my back feels a bit better today but when I bend to that not so sweet spot its like a sharp pain just hits and thats it, but like I said its starting to dull so thats a good thing. fluid consumption is on track, I get my gallon of green tea in every day along with at least another half gallon of water and many days its more like 1.25 gallons of green tea because I sneak some in here and there thats not in the jug that I am drinking off of for any given day. Nothing that could be called cardio really to report but movement is happening so some exercise is present, just not at the level I would like it to be right now, but with the back feeling pain I can only do what it lets me do until the pain goes away.
Here is Wednesdays menu.
1 banana 105
1 tbsp peanut butter 95
1 dannon light yogurt 60
2oz roasted chicken breast 100
2 80 calorie rolls 160
less than 1 tbsp miracle whip 30
sliced tomato 10
small dill pickle 10
2 cups home made soup 325
3/4 cup cooked white rice 150
26oz watermelon 234
Grand total of 1279 calories for the day, I know that its low but at the same time I am not doing much exercise and I am not feeling the least bit deprived of food so I will not worry about it. everything is still on track and going as planned, the weight is still coming off each week so what else could I hope for? I am happy with where I am in this attempt to drop the excess weight from my body and get away from Lions and Tigers and Bears oh my! weight and closer to a human weight.

Finally I wake up and I am below my Friday weight, I caught up with Sundays bad eating and hopefully will have a decent drop this week, and by decent I mean two pounds. this week sort of back fired on me because I was suppose to be hardcore workout guy and well, I am not. it started as a lazy weekend ending with some beers and carried into Monday like that, Tuesday I started working out and bamn! during some stretches my injury started acting up. My lower back where the disk injury was/is is killing me since last night and that is unfortunate for me because it means zero movement other than daily stuff like walking within the house, cooking etc. it usually takes a day or two to get the pain completely gone and this is the first time in a while that I have had pain from the injury. nothing I can do about it besides stick to the eating plan when this happens and thats what I am going to do. I am a little bummed about it but whatever, I will play with some light dumb bells this afternoon to see if it hurts and if not then I will at least get that in, and if not then I am on no exercise until the back stops being annoying. otherwise my day is great and I am in a good mood.
Intake for Tuesday came in at 1338 calories and was pretty spread out through the day, even if it was not the best food day in the world it was not bad either. while my Excel sheet says 1338 calories I know it was a bit more because while making the lunch packs for wify from the previous post, I was "taste testing" the chicken to make sure it was seasoned right, so I got in a couple calories there, not even close to the 162 that I had left mind you, but it was something and since I am all about being accountable I thought I would mention that fact. with that I give you the menu from Tuesday.
1 banana 105
1 tbsp peanut butter 95
22 oz watermelon 198
2 hebrew national hot dogs 90
4oz sweet potato fries 100
2 slices whole wheat bread 140
2 Gortons fish fillets 340
3/4 cup white rice 150
1 serving of steamed broccoli 60
Dannon light yogurt 60
Grand total of 1338 calories for the day, it is raining and I have a pot of soup on the stove, hopefully my back feels better sooner than later but either way the food will be on track and whats a little bit of pain right? it will pass and then back to normal and back to dropping the weight, pretty soon (hopefully) I will be posting about how I am maintaining my weight instead of dropping it and that is a fact for sure. Thanks for reading along.
Also I put a few new pictures in my photo section of me and wify :)

I have a few minutes so I thought I would pop on here and drop a short post up for the evening, I just got done making lunches for my wife for the next twelve days because were on mission to see how much money we can save whilst losing all of our weight. She was eating Lean cuisine's or smart ones for Lunch every day at work and if you buy these little convenient packages of goodness you know that they can be pricey, usually she can get them on sale four for ten dollars, and if she is lucky five for ten. so we were doing our bulk shopping list for the week last Saturday and came up with the idea to make our own little version of these lean cuisine meals since I am a pretty good cook and don't mind a little work to save a few bucks.
She and I just made 12 portions of the BBQ rice beans and chicken that I posted the recipe for a day or so ago and packaged them up and they are in the freezer right now. We bought a whole chicken while shopping this weekend and I baked it this afternoon so that it would be cool to make these little meals this evening, 2 cans of Goya black beans and made a pot of rice. The whole chicken was less than $5.00 we bought the Goya beans for 3 cans for $2.00 so the beans we used cost $1.34 the rice was oh I don't know, we have a 20lb bag that we bought for like $8.50 or something so lets say the rice was $.50 so grand total for these 12 lunches cost us $6.84 if I call the chicken five bucks, that works out to $.57 per portion. we had BBQ sauce in the fridge and black pepper and Mccormick spices in the cabinet so I won't include those in the total.
Each portion contains.
1/2 cup cooked white rice = 100 Calories
1/4 cup black beans = 45 calories
2oz shredded chicken with BBQ sauce on it = 120 calories
Total calories 265 per portion.
Now I came up with the calories for the chicken @120 per 2oz because it is mostly white meat which is about 50 per oz and the dark meat is about 60 or so per oz add the BBQ sauce and I just rounded it to about 60 per oz which I think is pretty close.
I am sure I will dip into these for a lunch here and there myself and I plan on making a Spanish version of these little portions as well as an Asian themed version, I have an idea that the Asian one will be very low in calories as I plan on using lots of veggies. The best part? tomorrow it is suppose to rain all day so I will make a soup with the carcass from the chicken that I used for the lunches, so we will have 3 containers of soup in the freezer by tomorrow evening and a nice home made spicy Spanish themed soup for dinner tomorrow night and all that will cost us is whatever the Veggies cost, which I estimate to be under $6.00, maybe I will figure that out as well and put it in a later post. with gas prices going up the way that they are and with food prices rising daily every bit counts and all of this creativity with my cooking and planning helps a ton there, and look at that! I am on a low calorie diet plan, eating healthy, getting my fill of highly nutritional home made meals and no special buy it now for only 3 easy payments of $39.99 miracle diet plans in sight.
