This Summer, experience the heart warming and heart breaking tale of that man. Experience "CARBAGEDDON" <BR> In theaters July 4. <BR> <BR> This week was so-so for me. Diet was ok, water intake was good, but for some reason my body just did not want to cooperate. My weight was up and down from one day to another and on Friday morning I was up to 247.4. Not looking good for posting another lo... Sat, 23 May 2015 17:55:14 EST Wk 214 Weigh In I had a pretty good week overall. I felt pretty good, I slept pretty good, I ate pretty good. Of course I know I can do better than "pretty good", but sometimes, pretty good is good enough. <BR> <BR> I'm still not feeling very motivated, but I'm trying to continue to fake it until I make it. I keep my calories right around 1700 to 1900 almost every day which is good because I'm still not working out (that's where the lack of motivation is hitting me the hardest). I drink around 12 glasses o... Sat, 16 May 2015 19:30:41 EST Wk 213 Weigh In This week I expected to lose most if not all of the 2 lbs that I gained last week. Instead, this week was a push, nothing gained or lost. I went over my calories a couple of different days and Friday, which is usually my best day (because it's the day before I weigh in!) I had a Subway sandwich and some chips, which was more sodium that I planned on taking in. I was going to pass on the sandwich and chips, but it was staff appreciation day at my school and I would have been the only person ou... Sat, 9 May 2015 19:39:12 EST Wk 212 Weigh In I think Sir Isaac Newton had it wrong all those years ago; what goes down, must also go up should have been his findings. <BR> <BR> I wasn't able to recreate the success from the previous week. My eating was just about the same, but I didn't get as much sleep as I did the week before. And the one day that my food intake was not good was of course on Thursday, or as I have come to call it, "The day that ruins diets". <BR> <BR> But this week the Thursday implosion wasn't even my fault (mo... Sat, 2 May 2015 21:55:29 EST Wk 211 Weigh In This week was better than last week. My sleep was better all week, I'm only getting about 7 hours but each day it felt like those 7 hours were restful, instead of being restless. Also, I didn't work on Tuesday so I slept in... slept for 10 hours! Man did that feel good. I also used that taiem off of work to do some shopping, got some protein bars and meal replacement shakes for my lunches. I don't like to do sandwiches or other heavy stuff for lunch when I'm working so I eat a bar and a banan... Sat, 25 Apr 2015 19:14:04 EST Wk 210 Weigh In What a long week this was. All day Thursday I kept thinking it was Friday, because it felt like it should have been Friday. <BR> <BR> We held our Special Olympics on Friday and luckily it didn't get too hot. We had a bunch of other schools come and participate so our school was chock full of kids, teachers, aides and parents. We had 50 meter running, long jump and softball throw events. Almost all of the kids participated in one way or another and everyone received a medal (made of actual ... Sat, 18 Apr 2015 19:46:36 EST Wk 209 Weigh In This was another birthday week, this time it was my dad's turn. His birthday was on Friday, but my brother and sister in law took us out to lunch on Thursday for gourmet burgers. Then on Friday we had chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and corn and apple pie for dessert. With birthday meals right at the end of the week, I wasn't real enthused about my weigh in this morning. <BR> <BR> Weight : 245.8 <BR> Loss : 0.2 <BR> Total : 74.2 <BR> <BR> Talk about being very pleasantly su... Sat, 11 Apr 2015 20:40:23 EST Wk 208 Weigh In I know that I had a birthday dinner last week when my brother and sister in law came to town, but that didn't mean that I wouldn't have another birthday dinner on my actual birthday, the 31st! So I had a few slices of pizza with my folks and my son, no soda, just a few slices of pizza. <BR> <BR> But, my back was acting up all week and I didn't sleep well at all. And for me, sleep is important, when I don't get enough sleep, I do not lose weight, in fact my weight usually creeps slowly upwa... Sat, 4 Apr 2015 21:39:38 EST Wk 207 Weigh In So this week went just as I suspected it would. I knew my brother and his wife were coming to town either Thursday or Friday to take me out to an early birthday dinner. As I've said before, when my brother is buying, I'm eating steak! So it was the 16 oz rib eye, cooked medium with fries. So good. So, so good. <BR> <BR> Okay, here's the numbers for the week. <BR> <BR> Weight : 246.0 <BR> Gain : 0.8 <BR> Total : 74.0 <BR> <BR> All in all, not too bad for eating a 16 ounce steak... Sat, 28 Mar 2015 20:15:30 EST Wk 206 Weigh In Just a quick blog post today, I'm a little busy doing other stuff :) <BR> <BR> This was a weird week for me. I made a 200 mile round trip drive Sunday night to pick up my mom at Sacramento airport, getting home at 11:45, so I didn't work on Monday, I slept in instead. I worked on Tuesday and Wednesday but felt worn down and lethargic. I decided not to work on Thursday and slept for 12 hours on Wednesday night. Then I took a 3 hour nap Thursday afternoon. Thursday night I slept for 11 hours ... Sat, 21 Mar 2015 21:42:41 EST Wk 205 Weigh In Hey, remember last week? Last week was awesome, wasn't it? I mean, not totally awesome, but more awesome than a lot of the weeks so far this year. Definitely more awesome than this week. <BR> <BR> So, I don't get to post another nice loss this week. My routine that I have been working with the last few weeks got thrown out the window and it threw me off. You see, my employer (the county office of education) had me, on paper, working with a specific child in the closs room that I was schedul... Sat, 14 Mar 2015 20:18:38 EST Wk 204 Weigh In Captain's Log <BR> Star Date 7 March, 2015 <BR> <BR> Salutations my good readers. It has been one week since I last left a written history of what my week was like. When last we left off, I was dismayed at the 1.4 lb gain I had taken on. My body seemed to be rebelling against me by adding weight despite my efforts to keep my calories down and my water intake up. Alas, the body is a mystical and confusing thing, to be sure. <BR> <BR> But this week, this glorious week, has seen me turn the... Sat, 7 Mar 2015 19:11:39 EST Wk 203 Weigh In One step forward, six steps back.... <BR> <BR> Not a very good week for me on the scale. :( But it was my first week working a full school day schedule and it kind of threw me off with my eating, but I did expect there to be some adjustment period. So I wasn't surprised by having a gain, what did surprise me is the fact that on Thursday morning I was already down on the scale and feeling good about having a loss for the week. Then between Thursday and Friday I gained almost 2 lbs! I didn... Sat, 28 Feb 2015 17:15:44 EST Wk 202 Weigh In A little back sliding this week, but I'm okay with it. :) <BR> <BR> I finally started working again, after 6 years of being without a job. Sure, it was just a 4 day week (Presidents Day holiday) and I was only working 11:15 to 2:15, but I was working. I am a substitute para-educator which means that I am a classroom aide working with special needs kids. This last week I was with kids from 13 to 17, this next week I will be working from 8:00 to 2:30 with kids at an elementary school. Not qu... Sat, 21 Feb 2015 19:22:25 EST Wk 201 Weigh In I ate a 12 oz ribeye steak and fries this week, it was delicious and I didn't feel guilty, not one bit! <BR> <BR> So my brother and his wife came to town Thursday and took us (mom, dad, my son and I) to dinner, which is what happens every time they are in town. So since we went to a steak house, I had the steak I wanted, the ribeye. The ribeye has so much flavor and not a lot of fat, in my opinion, it's the best cut that there is. <BR> <BR> Of course this happened on Thursday because tha... Sat, 14 Feb 2015 17:35:11 EST Wk 200 Weigh In This week I engaged in kissing my sister. Metaphorically speaking, of course. I don't actually have a sister. <BR> <BR> This week was going well enough but a late in the week week overdose of sodium kept me from posting a loss. Oh well, there's always next week. <BR> <BR> Weight : 245.0 <BR> Lost : 0.0 <BR> Total : 75.0 <BR> <BR> I will do better next week, I need to do better next week. For now, I'm going to sit down and put my feet up. I just spent the last few hours at Low... Sat, 7 Feb 2015 19:49:28 EST Wk 199 Weigh In So once again it's Saturday and I face the scale; the epic confrontation that rages in bathrooms all across the world. I'm but one soldier, doing what I can in the war of weight. <BR> <BR> This week was so-so, my weight was a bit up and down but overall not too bad. I'm going to keep this short so let's just get to the numbers. <BR> <BR> Weight : 245.0 <BR> Lost : 0.4 <BR> Total : 75.0 <BR> <BR> So another loss of 0.4 lbs. It's not much, again, but it's still a loss and that m... Sat, 31 Jan 2015 20:30:44 EST Wk 198 Weigh In Another week has come and gone, it sure seems like this month has been flying by. Once again I was having a good week, until I hit the mid week slump. It seems like my will power weakens on Wednesday or Thursday and I give in to temptation and eat the wrong stuff, and usually too much of it. Of course then I hate myself for being weak and go through the mental self flagellation for a day or two until I step on the scale on Saturday morning. <BR> <BR> But I did manage to get a loss for the w... Sat, 24 Jan 2015 21:50:10 EST Wk 197 Weigh In I was going to write this blog post earlier in the day, but I didn't. <BR> <BR> Not a bad week overall. I ate fairly decently and could see weight coming off little by little each day. Until Thursday of course. I was headed for a loss of about 1.5 lbs then all of a sudden it stopped and between Thursday morning and Saturday morning my weight just moved up and down in the same 0.2 range. Oh well. <BR> <BR> Weight : 245.6 <BR> Loss : 0.4 <BR> Total : 74.4 <BR> <BR> So I had a lo... Sat, 17 Jan 2015 22:38:06 EST Wk 196 Weigh In I'm going to skip all of the pleasantries today. I have had a headache for enough days in a row that I've lost count. It has waxed and waned from not too bothersome to "I can't sleep with this pain". Right now, it's closer to the latter of the two. I'm not sure, but I think it's being caused by tinnitus, which I've never experienced before. But for several weeks now I've had what sounds like an electrical noise in my head and. <BR> <BR> It may not be tinnitus, it may be nerve issues in my ... Sat, 10 Jan 2015 20:45:39 EST Wk 195 Weigh In Hey, remember how I didn't gain any weight over Christmas? Those were the days... <BR> <BR> So New Years has come and gone and it didn't treat me too well. Normally New Year's Eve would be filled with snacks at my friend's party. But this year a lot of people weren't around for various reasons and the party that usually has around 20 or so people only had about 8. With less people comes less snacks. I had a handful of tortilla chips with nacho cheese and some chicken nugget things. I had on... Sat, 3 Jan 2015 19:16:57 EST Wk 194 Weigh In Move along folks, nothing to see here... <BR> <BR> This time of year is definitely difficult for any person attempting to lose weight. Between Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's eve and day, there's so much food to be had. It makes it darn near impossible to not gain weight. But sometimes, on rare occasions, a miracle happens. <BR> <BR> I didn't gain weight this week! The week which included Christmas eve pizza and a nice Ham dinner for Christmas. I survived it! <BR> <BR> Weight : 2... Sat, 27 Dec 2014 18:31:06 EST Wk 193 Weigh In After last night's cheese burger and potato salad, I can say most assuredly that food choices are more than likely one of the main culprits in my ongoing saga of small gains and even smaller losses. <BR> <BR> Just like every other week, I believed that this week would find me posting a loss. Just like almost every other week, I was wrong. I don't get it, I'm a smart guy, but I keep making poor choices and sabotaging myself! <BR> <BR> It's kind of funny, I don't currently have a job so I ... Sat, 20 Dec 2014 18:23:52 EST Wk 192 Weigh In So this week happened, because I haven't been able to figure out how to stop time yet. <BR> <BR> This week was full of ups and downs. Literally, my weight kept going up and down by 0.8 every day. When you're not doing much different from day to day it gets frustrating watching your weight fluctuate like that! But now it's Saturday and I can relax and get ready to take another stab at it tomorrow. <BR> <BR> Weight : 243.2 <BR> Lost : 0.4 <BR> Total : 76.8 <BR> <BR> So I was fi... Sat, 13 Dec 2014 19:10:20 EST Wk 191 Weigh In I'm writing this blog post about 5 hours later than usual, because I didn't feel like writing it earlier. I was way too busy, watching videos on YouTube. <BR> <BR> After last weeks complete and total shock of posting a small loss after Thanksgiving I had high hopes for this week. But I should have known what happens when I have such hopes and begin to take on a more rosy outlook. Nothing good ever comes from it. <BR> <BR> Weight : 243.6 <BR> Gain : 0.8 <BR> Total : 76.4 <BR> <... Sat, 6 Dec 2014 22:55:36 EST Wk 190 Weigh In So I came into Thanksgiving week having gained weight the previous two weeks. Hopeful to stem the tide, but also wary of the feast that would take place on Thursday. The feast didn't disappoint, it was great! Good enough that I ate more than I should have, although I didn't have any dessert, I was too full to even think about pie! <BR> <BR> So without any further ado, let's get to the numbers. <BR> <BR> Weight : 242.8 <BR> LOST : 0.2 <BR> Total : 77.2 <BR> <BR> Yes! Somehow I ... Sat, 29 Nov 2014 21:13:17 EST Wk 189 Weigh In Here we go again! <BR> <BR> One more week down and another pound gained (or more as is the case). But I know what happened this week, so that's good. What isn't good is that after my free day on Saturday, I allowed myself to have a "mostly free" day on Sunday and again on Monday. So on Tuesday morning instead of being 1 to 2 lbs higher than Saturdays weigh in, I was 5 lbs higher than Saturday. Making it real difficult to get back to my Saturday weight, let alone post any kind of loss. I alm... Sat, 22 Nov 2014 18:32:12 EST Wk 188 Weigh In Another week, another gain! <BR> <BR> If the whole idea behind SparkPeople was to gain weight, I'd be an all time great by now! However, that is not the end goal so I must confess to being a loser and not the kind that we all aspire to be! <BR> <BR> However, that being said. I'm actually not that upset about gaining this week, but I'm not sure why. I know I could have done better food wise, but it's hard to pass up one pound of french fries covered in cheddar cheese! It was a new burger ... Sat, 15 Nov 2014 18:22:41 EST Wk 187 Weigh In Another week, another opportunity to get it right. Of course for me it's another week to get it wrong. <BR> <BR> I really hate it when I do the things that helped me lose weight in the past and I end up gaining weight instead. It makes things so much more frustrating. <BR> <BR> Weight : 241.0 <BR> Gain : 1.8 <BR> Total : 79.0 <BR> <BR> That's about it for this week, weight gain and excessive levels of stress seem to be my constant companions. I know, I know... the stress is p... Sat, 8 Nov 2014 18:16:54 EST Wk 186 Weigh In Welcome to November, the dark and gloomy part of the year. My favorite part of the year :) <BR> <BR> So I woke up this morning and walked into the bathroom. After taking of some of my morning business I stepped upon the scale and watched the LCD screen for the news. It wasn't bad news! It was super good news either, it was just... meh. But meh on the side of good is better than it being on the side of bad, I suppose. <BR> <BR> The numbers: <BR> <BR> Weight : 239.2 <BR> Lost : 1.4 <... Sat, 1 Nov 2014 18:37:55 EST Wk 185 Weigh In Second week of being officially back on spark, and of course I gained weight! <BR> <BR> Things were going fairly well until Thursday night. Thursday night offered me a couple of slices of Costco sausage and pepperoni pizza. If not for the pizza, I should have posted at least a small loss, instead I posted a gain. <BR> <BR> The numbers: <BR> <BR> Weight : 240.6 <BR> Gain : 2.2 <BR> Total : 79.4 <BR> <BR> So I'm back and I'm still doing what I was doing before I took my break;... Sat, 25 Oct 2014 19:45:42 EST Wk 184 Weigh In It's been 21 weeks since my last blog post, 21 weeks, damn. What I intended to be a relatively short break away from Spark turned into all of Summer and parts of Spring and Fall. <BR> <BR> Of course I wasn't completely away. I actually only had one day of not logging in to spin the wheel, last Friday, because I was out of town at a wedding. So I was never really away from Spark after all. <BR> <BR> I needed to "clear my head" and figure out why my weight loss had stalled and wouldn't get ... Sat, 18 Oct 2014 18:02:53 EST Wk 163 Weigh In They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result. <BR> <BR> Hello, my name is Ken and I'm insane. <BR> <BR> This was the week to turn things around, to put an end to the gaining and post a solid loss. The week to get my head on straight, block out all of the internal noise and get down to business. <BR> <BR> Of course that's not at all what happened. Up until Thursday everything was going great, I was set to deliver a loss for this morning. Then ... Sat, 24 May 2014 17:54:38 EST Wk 162 Weigh In I decided to skip a week... instead of losing weight this week so I could just gain it back next week, I Just gained this week and got rid of the middle man. <BR> <BR> Not a great week for me. My back didn't really act up which was nice, but my knee has been hurting like hell and I can't figure out what the hell I did to make it angry! If it's not one thing, it's another, story of my life. <BR> <BR> I had a big breakfast and dinner on Monday (celebrating Mother's Day on Monday because on ... Sat, 17 May 2014 17:56:02 EST Wk 161 Weigh In Not much to say today. My back has been feeling better (knock on wood) but it has had lots of days of feeling better right before it went out, so I'm not going to celebrate any time soon. <BR> <BR> I had a gain this week, of course I pretty much knew would since I posted a loss last week and that's how things have been going for quite some time now. Oh well. <BR> <BR> So here's the numbers for the week. <BR> <BR> Weight : 225.4 <BR> Gain : 0.8 <BR> Total : 94.6 <BR> <BR> It's... Sat, 10 May 2014 19:06:05 EST Wk 160 Weigh In This week was a little better than last week. I have had a few nights of good sleep, but it seems like I can't put 2 good nights back to back! But I'm going to continue going to bed each night, keep working on that sleep. Unlike going to the gym, working on sleep is pretty easy to do. I just have to lie there and close my eyes... I'm pretty good at that. <BR> <BR> Anyway, so my back has been having it's ups and downs but it was less twitchy overall this week. Still, anytime I have to bend ... Sat, 3 May 2014 17:46:34 EST Wk 159 Weigh In The good news for this past week is that I didn't die sometime before today. <BR> <BR> The bad news is that my back has been feeling like it's on the cusp of going out since Monday. My back is very finicky, it really wants 8-9 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night to feel rested and ready for a new day. Unfortunately for my back (and me) I've only been getting 5-6 hours of sleep each night. <BR> <BR> Here's an analogy that kind of sums up my back and it's sleep requirements. Imagine ca... Sat, 26 Apr 2014 18:45:24 EST Wk 158 Weigh In This week was better than last week. Then again, it didn't really take much to make this a better week! <BR> <BR> So after my back going out big time last Friday and then posting a big gain on Saturday I had my work cut out for me this week. And by work I mean lots of time spent resting my back and being careful about what and how much I ate :) <BR> <BR> Luckily for me there were no family member birthdays or holidays centered around a meal this week. That made my task much easier. On the... Sat, 19 Apr 2014 21:34:51 EST Wk 157 Weigh In Today, 4/12/14 marks my 3 year sparkversary, yay. <BR> <BR> This wasn't a great week. My back has been giving me fits for the last couple of weeks and it got worse this week. I've been getting "twitchy" feelings everyday and that's not a good sign. It usually signals the the back is going to go out. So last night my best friend who now lives 8 hours away was in town and we met up at the tattoo studio he used to work for. We ended up standing around for 4 hours, just hanging out with one of ... Sat, 12 Apr 2014 21:41:38 EST Wk 156 Weigh In This was a better week for me, not stupendous, but much better. My birthday was on Monday the 31st and I had a good sized dinner. Ribeye steak, shrimp, rice pilaf... good eats! <BR> <BR> The weight from last week started to come off and that was a good sign. It fluttered a bit for a few days but I was still able to post a loss this week. I came up short of erasing last week's gain, but at this stage of the game any loss is worth being happy about! <BR> <BR> So on to the numbers for the w... Sat, 5 Apr 2014 17:07:34 EST Wk 155 Weigh In Last week I had said that I didn't post a loss, but that there was always next week. I probably shouldn't have said that... <BR> <BR> This week started out well enough, I was plodding along nicely. I figured I was on track for at least a small loss. Then BAM! fast food burgers and fries on Wednesday, then BAM! big breakfast for dinner on Thursday. On Friday it looked like I might still have a slim chance of at least breaking even again. So Friday, I'm busy with little things and I just didn... Sat, 29 Mar 2014 17:43:55 EST Wk 154 Weigh In Happy Spring everyone :) <BR> <BR> Not much to report this week, I didn't gain or lose any weight, stayed exactly the same. Which I believe would technically be more difficult to do! But that's where I'm at this week, maintenance. <BR> <BR> I thought for sure I was going to post a loss this week, but for some reason everything just stalled the last couple of days and it didn't happen. Oh well, there's always next week! <BR> <BR> :) <BR> <BR> Here's the numbers for the week: <BR> <BR... Sat, 22 Mar 2014 17:08:11 EST Wk 153 Weigh In I'm going to make this blog post short because I'm a little tired. After lunch today my son and I went and visited the Castle Air Museum, at what used to be Castle Air Force Base (until Clinton shut it down in the 90's). It is one of the top air museums in the nation and is visited by people from around the world. <BR> <BR> Well today it was about 80 degrees and we were walking around for more than an hour with very little shade. 80 isn't real hot for here, but it should only be about 64 ... Sat, 15 Mar 2014 19:45:14 EST Follow up to Wk 152 blog Several times this week I have sat down to write to each of you that left me a comment on my Week 152 blog post. But I just couldn't get myself to write anything. I realized today that the problem wasn't having nothing to write, but realizing that what I needed to write to each of you was the same thing. <BR> <BR> Here's an analogy of how I see this situation: I got really drunk at a party and made a complete fool of myself, said things to people that I never should have. Now, the next day... Thu, 13 Mar 2014 16:24:20 EST Wk 152 Weigh In *** BREAKING NEWS*** <BR> <BR> The SparkPeople user King_Slayer is a terrible role model. Unless of course you just want to use him as a bad example, someone NOT to emulate. <BR> <BR> *** end news feed *** <BR> <BR> Bad week, too many screw ups, not enough intestinal fortitude to do what I need to do to get back to being successful. Contrary to all of the best advice, I am beating myself up. These ridiculous weeks of gains interspersed with tiny losses is completely my fault. No one e... Sat, 8 Mar 2014 17:27:45 EST Wk 151 Weigh In Life is like a box of chocolates. Except someone else ate all of the good ones before the box got to me. <BR> <BR> 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... Sat, 1 Mar 2014 18:00:07 EST Wk 150 Weigh In 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. <BR> <BR> 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 ru... Sat, 22 Feb 2014 17:13:46 EST Wk 149 Weigh In 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. <BR> <BR> 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 busine... Sat, 15 Feb 2014 17:38:25 EST Wk 148 Weigh In I hope everyone's weekend is treating them well so far. <BR> <BR> 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 becau...
