This weekend I plan to go below 200 pounds again. Three years ago I went below 200 for the first time in a long while. I stayed around there for a couple of years and gained it all back last year.
My real major goal is 195. Those who read my blogs back when I went under 200 last time may remember me missing 195 by less than a pound. 0.8 pounds to be exact. This happened at least twice. I would go for 195.0, hit 195.8, stay around there for a few weeks and then gained a few pounds.
When I was struggling with my weight, this became really #annoying.
Back in June/July. I hit a plateau right above the 205 pound mark. Yes, when I ate healthfully I was consistently bottoming out at ....wait for it.... 205.8 on the midweeks (206.0 when I wasn't trying).
So, even though the plateau is over and I know I'm going below 200 this Saturday (Lord willing), I wasn't surprised at all that my weight this past Saturday was 200.8. A multiple of five plus #pointeight.
I feel like I'm very realistic in that when I'm close to actually hitting 195 in the next few months, I will plateau out at 195.8 again. If not, cool. But I presume....
I don't care if the plateau lasts for 10 weeks. I will keep doing what I'm doing and the weight will come off. This time will be different. It's no longer a fight to lose weight. It's no longer an epic struggle. I'm eating basically healthfully and my sugar consumption is under control.
I look forward to going below 200 this Saturday or next, possibly for the last time ever.
I look forward to possibly hitting 195.8 and waiting it out this time.
I look forward to finally reaching the milestone I have been reaching for for four years.
Count.8 on it!
- TD Out.8 !

OK, so the hungries have been offset by the weight loss. I know that I'm getting healthier, which is good, but I don't like how much I've been eating.
This week, I'm going to try to figure out how to not eat so much. I may go back to doing more cardio. I don't know.
Last week was kind of a Hail Mary weigh-in, was really surprised to have lost anything. This week more reflects reality.
**PREVIOUS WEEKS NUMBERS:
July 06: 206.2@21 (Last Week of Plateau )
July 13: 204.8@23
July 20: 204.2@21
July 27: 203.0@22
August 3: 203.0@22
(0.0 pounds gained/lost)
I'm going to try to start reducing my chocolate intake to get to cleanse level. I'm going to start shooting for 450 per day and then taper by about 20-30 per day each week until I am down to about 120. Then I will maybe do a whole-score Candida cleanse and diet.
- TD out!

I know what you're thinking. As I've mentioned before, I can read women's minds.
You're thinking things like:
* "Will I ever reach my goals?"
* "Will I be able to maintain when I hit my goals?"
* "Will I be truly HAPPY when I attain my goals?"
* "Geez, that Trent is so handsome/awesome. Why HAVEN'T I set him up with my daughter/sister/cute co-worker/bff/etc.?" (*en1)
* Did 1950's style sappy breakup doo-wop songs make it all the way to the 1970's?
But most importantly, You're asking......
"What happened to those great campaigns of Trent's like the ones from the 2010/2011"
You know the inspirational ones where I lost plenty of weight (*en2) and inspired many (*en3)
* Turning into a vampire (*en4)
* The hottest loser (*en5)
* Eating Cheetos every day (*en6) (*en7)
Well, in my final mile of this weight-loss journey, I'm going to do it. I will take a direct order from the leader of one of my SparkTeam and......
....be SUPERMAN!!!!!!!!!!! (crowd goes totally nuts)
Voice in TD's head: Ummmm... Trent?
Voice: Good idea, except for one minor detail.
Trent: sure, what's that?
Voice: You don't really have any superpowers.
Trent: Good point.
Voice: Plus if you did, you'd use them really stupidly like last time. You know, like when you used your bionic vision to look through your monitor to catch the tiny spider.
Trent: HEY! I got that Spider out of my flat in no time.....
OK, maybe not Superman per se. Actually, I think that I'm going to be.....
...A NON-SUPER Non-Hero!!!! (crowd claps quietly, kind of confused)
Yeah, here's what I am going to do:
* Post new profile pix every week (of the "greatest" and most "inspirational" super heroes)
* Make minor small and constructive changes to my healthy lifestyle as I notice the need
* In my blogs, use tons of Barney Stinson type colloquialisms (*en8)
* VERY gratuitously use the hashtag (*en9)
Unlike my vampire blogs. These will be LEGIBLE(*en10)
So tonight, Trent, as you know him will change FOREVER (or until I get bored with this schtick. Probably a month or two (*en11)). Oh oh. And I will weigh-in as normal Trent on Saturdays (hashtags to be used #inadvertantly and #sparkingly on those).
So make no mistake about it. I will be strong! I will be persistent!! I will fight to the end!!! I will not rest, sleep or be distracted until I REACH MY GOALS!!!!
Co-worker: Hey Trent! There's donuts in the kitchen area.
Trent: #sweet !! (gets up and starts walking to kitchen area) eh, we'll get there eventually (*en12)
- TD...wait for it...#Out!!
= = =
*en1: Seriously, don't answer that.
*en2: If by "plenty" one means "absolutely none"
*en3: If by "many" one means "pretty much no one"
*en4: Gained 3 pounds
*en5: Gained 2 pounds and gave up
*en6: Yes, he even failed at an eating program whose sole requirement was to eat Cheetos once a day.
*en7: In your comments please ask him why he's choosing to do the one thing that has never worked as his ticket to success.
*en8: It will be legend...wait for it...ARY
*en10: He assumes that to be a good thing
*en11: Give him a week and a half. two, tops.
