Day 51: The "I'm on a diet" mentality is the only constant in the universe

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Captain's Log Stardate 20110215: I've become rather afraid of the scale. OK, maybe the correct word is "terrified." No matter how much I might *appear* to be losing, I fear that some interplanetary alien is playing mind-games with my steel-encased foe and I can't bear the thought of stepping upon her. I must say that my immunity to blood wine has made a dramatic difference in how I feel and maybe that's just good enough.

Day 37: Lost in the Delta Quadrant

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

Captain's Log Stardate 20110201: I was appalled to find that all of my transmissions from the Delta Quadrant were lost over the past 30ish days; but, I must get over the hump and move on to continue my journey. First few weeks, I lost 5 pounds and sadly it was because I cut carbs and that darn Klingon Blood wine. I must say that the Cardassian "Ultra" beer is not nearly as satisfying. Since that time, I've been somewhat hesitant to re-weigh myself as it seems like yo-yo syndrome - I lose 5 lbs this week, re-gain it the next. I must face up to it, though....perhaps I'll be pleasantly surprised. I'll keep forging on this week in hopes of a breakthrough and Friday will be the day of truth. *shudder* Until then, live long and prosper.

  Down to the yo-yo syndrome - it totally bites. Hang tough.

Day 14: The only solution is...a balance of power.

Sunday, January 09, 2011

Captain's Log Stardate 20110109: Fell off the wagon *again* this weekend. *sigh* After downing a significant quantity of synthehol (aka, light beer), I found myself in front of an enormous pepperoni pizza calling my name. Next thing I knew, it was gone. All of it. After a small indulgence in such sumptuous carbs, I found myself backtracking into Carbtopia at warp speed. The inhabitants of Carbtopia has missed me so over the last week. We frolicked in the salt gardens of pretzelville, enjoyed some time in the city of Donut and I finally bid a sad farewell to my friends when we reached the town of French Fry. There must be a balance of power! I will be consulting the ship's counselor tomorrow for a quick prayer and some appetite suppressants.

    I love your blogs - they are fun to read! I'm sorry you fell off the wagon though. I totally understand. As long as you keep trying, you will gain the habits you want. I don't know if your totally giving up carbs, or just limiting them - but I think both things are terribly hard. I've seen other sparkers do it though, and I'm sure you can too!

Day 9: Interplanetary Peace Talks Progressing

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

Captain's Log Stardate 20110104: After a precarious journey through the neutral zone today, I am happy to report that day 9 was not was bad as expected. I got hungry in the afternoon but I'm finding that loading up on protein actually satisfies those cravings! Really could have used some of that blood wine today but instead had some tea with honey. Feeling good as I close out for the day.

Days 4-8: Klingons Attacking

Monday, January 03, 2011

Captain's Log Stardate 20110103: Days 4-7 are a blur. The Klingons attacked and we had to take them prisoner. We were able to salvage some blood wine and mighty good pizza. Once the attack was thwarted, however, a system-wide alert was issued. The crew seemed to have come down with a worm that left everyone bloated and slightly hung over. Fortunately, the doctor came up with an inoculation (it was called aspirinitis or something like that) and the crew is all but back to duty. Day 8 wasn't so bad. It felt good to fill up on protein. I fear, though, that day 9 is going to be similar to day 2 - difficult and trying.
