Life is like a box of chocolates. Except someone else ate all of the good ones before the box got to me.
Nothing much to report this week except of some delicious fried chicken and fried potato wedges on Thursday night. Oh how I wish that meal would have shown up on Monday instead. So I posted a small gain this week, not the end of the world. I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I think whatever does bring about the end of the world will be something bigger than my own personal weight gain. At least I hope to God that the world isn't hanging on my scale.
On to the numbers:
Weight : 222.4
Gain : 0.8
Total : 97.6
I will try to do better this week, honestly I will :) That is all for now, I am done writing. Good bye.

I think I'm going to make this blog post short as I don't have much to write about and frankly, I don't feel like trying to come up with something. I prefer to write when the mood strikes, when I have something witty (at least in my mind) to say. I don't like to try and force the witticisms and sarcasm when I'm just not feeling them.
So anyway, I lost a little weight this week. My back felt good enough to spend some time on the treadmill, which was good because I had a mid week run in with some Little Caesars Hot N Ready pepperoni pizza... It was surprisingly good for $5 pizza. But if I hadn't indulged I think I would have posted a better loss. Oh Well.
Weight : 221.6
Lost : 0.6
Total : 98.4
So just over half a pound lost, no great accomplishment. Perhaps this week I can avoid the mid week pizza and post another loss next Saturday!
Now I am off to go watch the season 3 of Game Of Thrones on Blu-Ray, which I picked up on Thursday :)
Have a great weekend!

One more week has been passed into the record books, another week that held the promise of "anything is possible". Another week of nothing happening, proving that while anything is possible, most everything is improbable.
Despite that horrid opening, this wasn't a bad week overall. The functionality of my back is still in the "will it or won't it" phase of neither getting much better or just going out completely. I attempt to put it out of my mind and just go about my daily business, although sometimes it is nigh on impossible to do so. But other than that, I didn't contract any deadly illnesses, or get hit by a train this week, so there is that bit of upside :)
Let's look at the numbers because I'm already tired of typing.
Weight : 222.2
Lost : 0.8
Total : 97.8
So I was able to post a loss of 0.8 lbs this week, not spectacular but better than most of my weight ins in the last few months. I'll take it.
Have a great weekend and don't do anything I wouldn't do! The list of things I wouldn't do used to be pretty long, but has been whittled down to using hard core drugs and doing gay porn (Not a hater, just not my thing!). So as you can tell, the sky is pretty much the limit here.

I hope everyone's weekend is treating them well so far.
I had a much better week, thank you very much. I went to the gym on the morning of Super Bowl Sunday and got an hour on the treadmill, because I knew that my friend who hosts the yearly party would have lots of food. So I had tri-tip steak, ribs, nachos and some chocolate chip cookies while watching that abomination of a game. But I also drank lots of water, no soda or Starbucks :) I considered last weekend a win for me because I only put on 2 lbs on my free day and 1 lb on Super Bowl Sunday. For me, that was a big win!
Unfortunately, my back started acting up again, spasms mostly and that kept me from the gym. However I did a better job of remaining diligent with my eating during the week and I earned my free day today.
Let's take a look at the numbers:
Weight : 223.0
Lost : 2.8
Total : 97
For those of you keeping score at home, I lost this week the exact same amount that I gained last week. Sure, it would have been great to lose a little extra, but I am happy that was able to erase that gain in one week.
Now all I have to do is keep it up and get back to having lost 100 lbs total then keep going from there.
Have a great week my friends.

Aaarrrgh (in case the wall of text below is too much for you, I gained this week)
2 meals destroyed my weigh in this week, 2 meals. As most of you are aware, I weigh in on Saturday morning and use Saturday as a "free day", diet wise. So each Sunday I am usually 3 lbs heavier (give or take) than I was on Saturday. Then the excess weight comes off during the week with a little extra usually leaving me with a loss by the next Saturday. I have employed this strategy for close to 3 years now and it has worked as described probably about 90% of the time. Of course it requires me to be diligent for 6 days a week in order for this strategy to work properly. Dligence hasn't been my strength in the last few months.
This week I was working on my diligence and was doing well. On Wednesday morning I weighed 224.4 (1.4 lbs above previous Saturday, on pace for a loss for the week) I made dinner consisting of pineapple chunks and cubed chicken cooked in the crock pot. I then threw in some rice toward the end and let that cook, soaking up most of the remaining juice (pineapple and teriyaki sauce). Chicken, rice and pineapple... the next morning, Thursday, I weighed 226 lbs! I ate less than 1700 calories the day before and had 10 glasses of water and gained 1.6 lbs! I know, probably the sodium from the teriyaki sauce, I added not other salt to anything.
So Thursday is back to the grind; low calories and 35 minutes at the gym on the treadmill (yes, I made it back to the gym!). Friday morning I am at 224.6 lbs. Glad to be back down but now I have to lose 1.6 lbs in one day to get back to even on Saturday, difficult, but not impossible. I even spend one hour at the gym Friday morning on the tread mill! Then I find out that my brother wants to take the family out to dinner because he and his girlfriend are jonesing for a local Mexican restaurant. As you know, my brother owes me mucho dinero so if he offers to pay for something, I take advantage. So last night I had a small serving of beans & rice with apporx. 2 ounces each of chicken and carne asada along with a few tortilla chips and some guacamole. I had 2 large glasses of water to wash it all down with.
So I was 224.6 Friday morning, now let's see what today offered.
Weight : 225.8
Gain : 2.8
Total : 94.2
So the 2.8 lbs I shed during January, came back in one week. Back to the drawing board, again. Today may end up being the last of my "Saturday free day" if I can't get things back under control and get rid of the weight I've gained since breaking my hand last August.
I'm wondering how many people will notice my feed says "King_Slayer GAINED 2.8 lbs! Congratulations from SparkPeople!" I've always thought it should tell people when you gained, not just when you lost, so I made it do it myself :)
