This week was better overall than last week. I ate better (not perfectly though) and had a better weigh in.
It's been a long week and I haven't slept well. I really don't feel like doing a lot of writing here today, not feeling inspired. I'll just post my numbers and bid you adieu.
Weight : 259.0
Lost : 2.2
Total : 58.2
There you go, 2.2 lbs this week. Would have liked to have had more, after last week's poor showing, but it's still a good loss.
Thank you and goodnight,

Not going to write much this week as I have a busy day today and I just don't feel like writing.
I had a bad week, I cheated on multiple days, ate things I know I shouldn't have and snacked too much at night. These things happen. It's not the end of the world, just a bad week for losing weight.
I'm not going to lose any sleep over it, just plan on sticking to my system much better this week and trying to get back on track. The last month or so I have noticed myself slipping, perhaps it is my subconscious giving me permission to cheat a little here and there because I've done so well. Whatever it is, I must be more vigilant if I am to ever reach my goal.
So here's the numbers for the week:
Weight : 261.2
Lost : .1
Total : 56
That's it, .1, one tenth of a pound, 1.6 ounces. I'm glad that I didn't gain, but it's hard to be happy about what I lost.
Oh well, there's always next week.

Hello fellow intrepid explorers of the journey to better health,
The weather her in central California has begun to turn. It has been in the mid 80's most of the week, with yesterday's high only hitting 79. It's nice to go out side and not feel like the sun's UV rays are cooking you. Summer temps were relatively mild, but we had a higher concentration of UV so it always felt like you were burning in the sun.
I had a pretty good week, although I did have a cheeseburger and chili cheese fries on Tuesday night :( Other than that I was a good boy, I swear! Drank lots of water ( I always do!) and watched what I ate.
Today marks the beginning of October and the beginning of the second half of my weight loss journey. What that means is that I reached my 55lb loss mark which was my halfway point. I needed to lose 1.3 lbs to get there, and I did it, and then some :)
Weight : 261.3
Lost : 2.2
Total : 55.9
So there you have it. I reached my goal and went over it by almost a full pound. I am a little proud of myself for accomplishing what I have so far. I had been telling myself that when I reached the halfway point I would hop off of this wagon for a week, just relax and eat what I wanted. No tracking or even logging into Spark, that would be my reward. But the hell with that. I don't want to take a break and come back 5 lbs above my halfway milestone, I want to continue to ride this baby til the wheels fall off. Then I'll put new wheels on it and keep riding it some more! I'm on a roll here, I've got some momentum built up and I want to capitalize on it.
So, no break for me, I'm going to keep on tracking my intake, eating clean, drinking 10-14 glasses of water a day and dropping 1-3 lbs a week until I can't do it anymore. I've got 54.1 lbs left to go on my goal and come hell or high water I'm going to make it there.
Now, who's with me!!

This was a pretty good week for me. Not much in the way of cheating, I did have 2 Keebler cookies though :) Was mid 90's all week, but this weekend is going to be in the 80's so that will be nice.
I want to be more active now that I've lost 50 lbs, but my body just won't cooperate. It's tough when you abused your body when you were younger and then you get a bit older and things don't want to work like they should! Maybe someday I'll find a job and be able to afford insurance and get some of these things taken care of, maybe.
Anyway, you didn't come here to listen to me complain, let's get to the numbers:
Weight : 263.5
Lost : 2.2
Total : 53.7
Overall a good week. If I lose at least 1.3 lbs next week that will be a total of 55 lbs, which is my halfway mark. I think I can do it :)
If you're gonna be a bear, be a grizzly!

A pretty good week overall. The weather has cooled so the highs this week were only 88-92 with nightly lows in the mid 50's, good sleeping weather.
I was eating well this week, until Wednesday night... cheeseburger with a big bowl of chili sprinkled with cheese. Oh man it tasted so good, nom nom nom. Then on Thursday, I was hungry and hadn't made anything ahead of time so I ate half of a DiGiornio pepperoni pizza, nom nom nom. It was good, but not as good as the cheeseburger and chili! But on Friday I was extra good with my food, never cheat the day before you weigh in!!!
Weight : 265.7
Lost : 1.7
Total : 51.5 (broke that 50 lb mark, yay!)
So there you have it, a couple of dirty cheat meals and I still made out okay :)
Time to run, it's my free day and it's time to go nom nom nom on some good food!!
