Back in the game. not that I was ever really out of the game.

Wednesday, October 08, 2008



Another day down and another pound loss, or so I hope. this week tarted off good and then Sunday came and we had a large meal which ended with some cake, oh well it is what it is, no worries. Monday and Tuesday were on schedule where intake come into the equation and I did get a ride on the bike in last night during The biggest loser and I plan on a ride today as well and I am going to try and coax Wify out after dinner for a walk, hopefully she is game.

Now I am going to go back to this skin thing that when I first started losing the weight I thought one would not be a problem for me and two I knew that was a lie but alas here we are and there it is. Lately I have noticed that the skin that is being left unfilled by fat is seemingly beginning to tighten up if only a slight bit, I lost a total of 9 pounds for the month of September which is also my lowest amount lost in a month to date but the interesting thing is that in the beginning of Sept I had to poke a new hole in my old belt so that it would snug up and hold my pants up and now a mere 9 pounds later I find myself having to make another hole in the good ol belt to keep the plumbers crack from being main stage. With that said I have to believe that all of this is a matter of the skin tightening up a bit because 9 pounds is nothing when you weigh what I do. My 4x shirts are starting to look a little big on me, big in the way that they fit comfy now instead of just fitting. I have a 3xl shirt from way back when and I tried it n a few nights ago just to see how it fit and its way too tight but the fact that I don't have to struggle to get it on either so were moving in the right direction and again I believe that the skin shrinking has as much to do with the way I am looking as the weight, at least for the last month anyways so there is good news.

Here is a look at the menu from Tuesday.

10/07/08

Breakfast
7:30 AM
1 banana 105
1 T peanut butter 95

9:45 AM
2 cups bran cereal 180
1 cup 1% milk 110

Lunch
12:30 PM
2 slices whole wheat bread 140
1 T peanut butter 95
1 T jam 50

3:30 PM
1 pear 85

Dinner
6:30 PM
8oz ground Turkey 320
2 80 cal rolls 160
6oz sweet potato fries 150
condiments 30
2 wedges laughing cow 70

Grand total of 1590 calories for the day and you can see the calories were spread throughout the day pretty good and those turkey burgers were very good thanks to cooking them outside on the grill. All in all I am still doing what I need to do but I am slipping on the weekends a bit lately and I have to stop that because I think it is a major factor in the slow down in the weight loss, that and the fact that I just don't have a regular exercise regimen lately, but the exercise thing is fixed as of last night and in fact I will be on the bike 30 seconds after I hit the publish button on this post so with that we have reached the end of another post.

    But if your kid doesn't practice trombone, he'll ALWAYS sound like he's killing an elephant with a screwdriver. ;) HAHAHAHA That was so funny, Tony. :D Anyway... you could always drop some cash and get him the super hightech silent brass practice system. :D I think it's like $100. So maybe a bit much for a budding trombonist. But it's very nice to hear he's picking it up! WOOHOO! :D There are videos up on YouTube of me playing now so you can play them and tell him to sound like me. ;) MWAHAHA. Not the greatest sound quality, but it's ok. The shrinking could be partially skin and partially improved body composition -- you could lose only 9lbs on the scale, but in fact lose 12lbs of fat and gain 3lbs of muscle or something like that, and that will definitely make you shrink in overall size. Either way -- GOOD STUFF!!! SO CONGRATS! :D And definitely, getting that excercise consistent will really ramp things up for you when it comes to the weight loss. :) Excercising and tracking on weekends are the main things that help me not go crazy. When I sit around like a lazy bum and estimate everything I eat, I end up going nutso with the food and with a zero calorie burn to boot.

LATER! :D

  9 pounds in a month is awesome!! You're just used to losing Biggest Loser-style (like 19 pounds a week...LOL). Go you for always doing the self-analysis thing. BTW, you got me into PB+banana in the a.m. for a quick breakfast...great idea, quick energy!! U rock!

    I can really relate to your issue of the weight loss slowing as a result of not doing great on the weekends. For the last 10 weeks or so I have given myself a "free pass" of sorts on weekends. I eat out every Friday night and then don't eat great on Sundays at my folks house. That has resulted in me losing only 10lbs in the last 11 weeks despite the fact that I still have a lot of weight to lose (70-80lbs). Hearing you admit that you need to tighten up on those weekends reaffirms it for me, so thanks. Good luck and congrats on your success!!!

    Oh, thank you, thank you for explaining that. That's what I'd hoped, too, that the skin WOULD tighten up with time and continued healthy eating and exercise. You greatly relieve my mind, even though this isn't something I have to contend with yet. :)

Way to go - you're gonna be back in the 200s in no time!

    Botzzz! How are you dude? Sounds like all is well. Good to see you're still pounding away at it.

Great to hear the skin is starting to tightening up, I guess it;s just a waiting game with that and I can see how frustrating it'll be as you don't have much control over that like you do over what you eat and when you exercise.

I forgot BL already started, I gotta to remember to catch the episodes. Love them dogs.

Its that time of the week again, weighing in.

Friday, October 03, 2008


This Ducati Desmosedici RR weighs 377 pounds

Its Friday and that means its time to record the good ol weight for the week, I suspected that I would have a decent drop this week and I was right, I stepped onto the scale to see it say 377 pounds, so of course I get on again and it aid 376.8 pounds, and the third and final time it said 377 again so thats a three pound loss this week and who wouldn't be happy with that? I know I am. That brings my total lost to date 157 pounds and I am within 2 pounds of having less than 100 to lose to hit my goal of 275, now were getting somewhere!

Intake for Thursday came in at 1590 calories but not really spread throughout the day it was more like 3 meals and thats it, I did get in all of my fluids for the day including just a tad less than a gallon of green tea. exercise for Thursday was a walk around the neighborhood with the my daughter, it was about a 35 minute walk and about a mile in length, nothing hard or anything just a nice walk on a cool day. other than that the week went good where weight loss related things are concerned, here is a look at Thursdays menu.

10/02/08

Breakfast
9:00 AM
3oz grilled steak 180
2 eggs 140
1 english muffin 120
sliced tomato 20
less than 1 T smart balance 20

Lunch
12:30 PM
2 slice whole wheat bread 140
1 T peanut butter 95
1 T jam 50

3:00 PM
crystal light 15

Dinner
6:45 PM
5oz chicken 280
4 slices whole wheat bread 280
miracle whip 35
1oz American cheese 110
1 cup peas 105

All in all its a good week all around and a 3 pound loss this week with minimal work honestly besides keeping within calorie ranged all week, which isn't really all that accurate as I did have dinner at my MIL's house Sunday and didn't weigh anything AND had a slice of carrot cake so I am pleased with the drop this week. Thanks for reading and thanks for the support.

    Congrats!!!! I can't wait to weigh in on Sunday to see how I have been doing. Working out and eating right...but my daughter got sick again...so with that brings stress and worry...which doesn't help much...but she is getting better! Yeah.

So green tea...a gallon a day...because you love it...do you do that in place of water...or in addition...and if not because you love it...for weight loss? Just wondering.

Take care and keep up the GREAT work!

Day CCLXXVI

Thursday, October 02, 2008



Thursday has come and weighing in tomorrow morning for the record is upon us again, I believe I will be able to hold onto the 370's this week but I make no promises. I have been keeping the excel sheet updated with each bite taken so the caloric totals should be pretty much exact barring the random extra bite of peas at dinner or a single fruit snack from the package when my daughter asks for one. Otherwise things are where they should be and I expect the weight to start coming off in bigger chunks again very soon because of it, ok weight coming off in big chunks now there is a visual for you to add to the gray matter while you eat your breakfast, and speaking of breakfast I made quite the AM starter this morning and all for 470 calories, I have included a picture for your viewing pleasure, 3oz grilled steak, 2 eggs, 1 english muffin and about half of a medium tomato, sorry for the bad pic I quickly took it with my cell phone just before digging in.

I have stopped buying my green tea pre made, sort of anyways, I still buy a few per month but at an average of $2.99 per gallon it was costing us close to $90 per month just for green tea! so I decided to brew my own for the bulk of the time for a while and see how it went, so I have been for the last few weeks making my own and sweetening it with Splenda only buying the pre made stuff (Arizona) a few times per month. I brew two gallons at a time which lasts two days and honestly it tastes pretty good cold, the problem is that I usually drink it room temp and with the home brewed stuff it has to be cold to taste good so I drink it slower and feel that I am not getting as much fluids as I should or that I was as a result of this. I will let it go a month or two more as is and see if home brewing 85% of the time is having the same affect on me as drinking the pre made stuff.

Here is a look at the menu for Wednesday.

10/01/08

Breakfast
8:45 AM
2 english muffins 240
2 laughing cow wedges 70
1 serving turkey pepperoni 70
sliced tomato 10

Lunch
11:45 AM
2 slices whole wheat bread 140
1 T peanut butter 95
1 T jam 50

3:15 PM
2oz steak 120
small apple 70

Dinner
7:00 PM
3/4 cup white rice 150
1 cup peas 105
8oz roasted chicken breast 400
1/2 T Smart balance 25

Grand total of 1545 calories for the day, which is a tad lower than I am allowing myself per day and at the same time the lack of exercise lately should make that fact not matter as much as if I were working out daily so no worries on the being lower than I want to be part of things. That concludes another brain shaking episode of as the fat guy turns, tune in tomorrow when Cody and Jemmilisa find out that Austin is hiding chocolates in his underwear drawer!

Weigh in is tomorrow wish me luck.

    How long do you brew your green tea for? I ask because if you overbrew green tea it becomes VERY bitter...and quite nasty tasting. Typically it should only brew for 3-5 minutes, and I'm closer to the 3 minute range. And, I am quite the tea diva, so you know I know what I'm talking bout. :)

HEY!!

Yea the outside stuff can cost a gripe. $90 can fill up the SUV over here. LOL But if it doesn't work out that way, at least u can say that you gave it a try!!! Like I can't cut certain things but then I will just others. It works out in the end for my pockets.

Also I think ur going to have a good weigh in and if it's dissappointing to you...THAT'S MOTIVATION RIGHT THERE. Also the first post is right, like cold drinks helps burn calories and speeds up ur metabolism because your body has to work to warm it up to body temp. Just a lil fact next time you drink the cold home made tea.

I'll bet you're still in the 370s for weigh-in ... you've not done anything majorly off-program, and your body is now set for a higher burn rate anyway!

    Just some FYI - I have read and heard that drinking cooler beverages burns more calories because your body has to heat them up before digesting them.

You are doing great! I'm glad to see you back to posting a regular blog.

You are also GREAT MOTIVATION!

Clone sighting

Wednesday, October 01, 2008


Better late than never and the post begins, Tuesday went right as scheduled and I stayed within calorie range but no exercise at all. I did something that I have not done in months, I can't remember exactly when I decided to not eat beef because of the FDA deeming it not important that the consumer know whether the meat was cloned or not but the fact remains that a good steak is still the best meal a fella can have in my humble opinion. We decided to grab a couple of steaks and toss em on the old grill for dinner last night, I ended up getting two steaks that were just about two and a half pounds total and asked Wify "do you think its enough?" the look I got from her was response enough so off we went and 15 minutes later the grill was fired up and tasty goodness was in the air. dinner consisted of said steak, cut green beans and seasoned rice with my standard giant glass of home brewed green tea, I took 10oz of steak for myself and that turned out to be much more than I could handle which is funny seeing as the lat time I had a steak I probably had at least 12oz, I actually ate 6oz and put 4 back onto the plate. Because of the steak I kept my calories a bit low for the day, they ended up at 1475 total and I was worried all night that I would have stomach pain at some point, but it never happened so I am grateful about that. Moral of this story? none really but that steak sure did hit the spot cloned or not cloned. Here is a look at the menu for the day.


09/30/08

Breakfast
8:30 AM
2 cups corn flakes 200
1 cup 1% milk 110

11:15 PM
bite of cheerios cereal 30

Lunch
12:00 PM
1 apple 100

2:45 PM
1 can Progresso soup 120
1 multi-grain english muffin 100
1 serving turkey pepperoni 70
1 wedge laughing cow 35
tomato 10

4:15 PM
1 granola bar 100

Dinner
6:45 PM
3/4 cup white rice 150
1 cup cut green beans 45
1/2 T smart balance 25
6oz grilled steak 360
A1 sauce 20

Grand total of 1475 calories for the day including the slab O storm trooper cow and that ain't bad. as I type this I have a bird baking in the oven and will be making some soup tomorrow or the next day with the carcass, that word makes it sound so yummy doesn't it? well it is. Getting back into the exercise groove is proving a little tougher than anticipated and at the same time I am going on walks so there is movement just not as much as I would like there to be, I would like to get back on the bike more regularly and plan to, its just getting back there slowly at the moment. and with that the post for the day has come to an end, thanks for reading.

    Yeah, you know how I feel about beef also and now I am in the mood for a steak! I just hope I won't be eating the clone of a cow I ate a couple years ago. I have been reading up on this cloning business and it is so, well, UNNATURAL. Maybe I can go to Stew Leonard's for some NON cloned beef? Don't they have their own farm here in CT? I am glad your tummy didn't hurt after. That can definitely happen when you don't eat beef and then suddenly BAM! Here comes the beef!

Ok, just getting dramatic over here. Good for you for putting back the extra 4 ounces. Isn't it amazing how our bodies adjust to normal portions? You are kicking arse, my CT buddy. Keep it up! emoticon

KITTEN_351 10/2/2008 11:25AM

    Wow, not finishing the steak is a huge accomplishment. Every time I have something that yummy on my plate, I have this urge to eat and eat and eat so that I keep eating and eating and eating until I can't feel my feet. Well, that's all changing now for me and to hear that you can have a 10 oz steak on your plate and put some of it back is encouragement that someday I could do the same!

Thanks for the motivation! Now maybe I could treat myself and do the same...prolly better to wait a little while after getting my appetite up so high.

    Well I don't eat beef man nor pork. SP or the FDA didn't do it to me, I guess it's always something I didn't like. But glad u enjoyed, its good to have something u normally don't have. You appreciate it more in my opinion. Mines is BBQ Turkey...yup the whole thing. LOL

The exercise will happen, the one day at a time thing comes in handy. Like I have been sick since Sunday night and got some exercise in Sunday and Monday. Yesterday and maybe today seems like it might not happen, but I usually I visualize how much better I am going to look and feel and that gets my behind in gear.

    Mmmm - that steak sounds good! I guess your tummy's shrunk, eh, if you can't eat a 10-oz steak? I had the awesome experience, a few months ago, of only eating HALF my filet mignon - and that's a teeny, tiny steak to start with!

Out of curiosity - do you and your wife dance? That would be a cool way to "exercise" ... without it feeling like a chore! :) Oh, with winter coming up, you can look forward to a few other fun things: skating, skiing, snowboarding - none of which (other than the skating) I've ever done! :)

I guess I'd better go get in my own exercise before I run out of daylight! :)

Bob the Anteater...means nothing but hey its a title!

Tuesday, September 30, 2008


Bringing things back into more of a strict structure again is happening as I type this, not that I wasn't being strict but I was going easy on myself where recording intake was concerned and I want to grab hold of the disciplined way that I was doing things just last month. a I said the weight is still coming off just at a slower pace than it has been and I have been less aggressive with my regimen lately partially because of things unrelated to my weight loss that have kept me focused in that direction, I have to keep this going because I have come too far into this game to slack now and I use the term slack loosely because I am staying under my intake range, I am getting in some exercise and I am making good eating choices, its more like I am relaxing and I decided this morning that I can't let that happen at this stage.

I have been counting my calories and logging them into my excel sheet but have not been writing the times I have been eating and sometimes its just the calorie amount and no what it was listed, today I started logging the times in again and am keeping track of every detail again. I am doing this because as I stated in earlier posts I still have just over 100 pounds more that I would like to lose and being anything but 100% dedicated will slow the process down and I want to hit that 200 pounds lost in 1 year goal that I set for myself. In all honesty I think its a bit more ambitious than I want to believe but I am sticking with that number and time frame until Jan 1st 2009.

Its that time of year again to make a trip or two to the apple orchards and that usually means that I would make some apple pies from scratch but I will have to hold off this year as they are very naughty where calories are concerned and weigh about 8 pounds each! so no pies this year, maybe I will experiment with some low calorie treats with some of the apples we get and I can post up what I made. Ok now I feel like I am rambling so I will end the post for now, I will have my menu to post from today on tomorrows post but for now its just numbers on my excel sheet so posting them would not show anything. My intake for Monday was 1580 total calories and it was spread throughout the day pretty good, its just not recorded so I won't try and make sense of it and figure out the times. As always I thank you for following along with my trip to the half, check back tomorrow for a new post as things have calmed down here and I have the time to post daily again.

    Alright, you've done it! You've made me realize that I need to start keeping track of my calories again. I've gone a little lax in this department and never thought of writing the times, but now here I go! I'm going to write them in a notebook this time though, so that if my internet connection is slow, it doesn't hold me back! Way to motivate!

    I'm loving the Honey Crisp apples right now!

What I've done for a snack is to slice an apple, cook the slices in about 1/3 - 1/2 cup water. When all the water is evaporated, the apple is about the consistency of what's in a pie. Then I put 2 tsp of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Light ... and 1 tsp of Splenda Brown Sugar Blend. (I don't like cinnamon, but a sprinkle or two would be great if ya like it.)

Anyway, it's a low-cal sub for apple pie. (Of course, it's the crust that's my favorite part of any pie ... so ... sigh.)

At least you're admittedly continuing to eat well and exercise, just keep your eye on the goal you have set for yourself and strive for it one day at a time.

    My ex used to make a sorta-apple-pie that was yummy - I don't actually like apple pie, but I loved those. You'll have to experiment, as I don't know the exact recipe. Start with a bit of pre-made pizza dough (the soft stuff, not the semi-baked). Let it get to room temp, then pinch off biggish balls (about 2 or 3 inches diameter?), roll into a fat circle, layer with sliced apples (he used tart green ones, yummy!) in the centre, leaving at least an inch all around, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Pinch the edges up, so the finished product looks sort-of like a pouch, but not fully sealed. Bake at 360 until it's brown ... pull out and cool (the apples can be wickedly hot at this point!) ... eat! Only about 240 calories per tiny mock-apple-pie. :)

You're a baker, it sounds like, so you'll have fun experimenting. :)

Keep going - I wanna be cheering at the 200-pound mark!

Maya
