Last night at 1: 30 a.m., I practically begged my brother to go get some fast food..lol. He had already had 3 slices of pizza at work though, and was heading to bed after working 10 hours. I of course was too lazy to drive myself, especially since he was low on gas, and it was 18 degrees outside. Plus, I didn't want to eat alone. So I didn't eat anything bad. I wasn't even hungry.
This morning I weighed in at 215.8, which is awesome. One pound from my January goal. I last reached 215.2 way back last spring, and been trying to get back since. I have gotten close 2 times, and fell back. The #1 reason I think I wanted to go eat last night was boredom, but 215 is looming also, and it is a large mental block. I last weighed 214 at 20 years of age, working 84 hours a week in a factory. Of course the year before I had gotten down to 183 by eating 1 meal a week, and working out every day, so I was on my way to 361 already, up 30 lbs. Working a bunch helped burn off some of the food I ate off the " roach coach ", which is the traveling food wagon. Youth helped some. I was slowly gaining though. A few years later I realized I hated factory work, and got a food service job, working 40 hours. So I worked less, and was near fast food... Wendy's. Weight gain sped up at that point..lol.
I know I was probably at 215 only for a short time, but that summer I actually tried to stop eating poorly, and weighed in once at 215, and the number stuck in my head. Till now it has just been a memory. I could say.. " I weighed 215 back in 1994 ". By 1997 I was 280, and the rest is history. Other than that, I just can't wait to get past 215. I had a similar problem at 300. Took me multiple attempts, and 6 months to get past it. Of course I was capable of losing 2 lbs a day back then..lol, so I blew through it, and got down to 290 quickly, and haven't seen it since. Now I struggle to lose 4/10ths of a lb. I think it is pretty quick weight loss, but it will take a lot longer to get to 210, and forget 215.
Anyways, I am close, and on track thanks to my brother's guilt about eating pizza..lol. I am down 2.2 since Sunday, and I doubt after pizza, that he is down 3 still. So I consider myself the front runner in the race to the camera. I am not sure that I will be playing basketball today. My ankles hurt a bit, so I may just walk for 90 mins, then go to the bank, and come home and do laundry. My brother works 3-1 tonight again, so I will be stranded again for 10 hours. I will try to avoid thinking of fast food tonight. I'll probably save a meal till he gets home, so I can eat that instead.
I ate my eggs already. I will have a snack around 3 p.m., then a meal at 7 p.m., and the other at 1 a.m. I may have to throw another snack in there. I already have the meals cooked up, so not much to do today. I started another Alex Berenson book, and nay nap through the afternoon.
Hope you have a wonderful day.
