Way to go Mike!!!!

You did a great job this weekend! Like Cam said, you should be very proud of yourself!

The Carb Addicts Plan sounds interesting. I have stalled in my weight loss big time and could use a new plan to follow. Is there a book or website that accompanies this plan?

By the way, I love your trip reports so far! Your second day sounded like a good one! Despite a little bit of rain.

Congrats Mike on a great weekend! Congrats also on your 10 pound loss! Did you add the clippie to your signtaure yet?

Have a great Monday!

Thank you so much Cam! It means a lot to know someone has faith in me!

You are definitely right, that is a good way to look at things!

Animals are so energizing. So, I know you worked your butt off, but, HEY, you "WANT" to work your butt off, right?
You are correct, I do want to work this butt off! I have a cat who spends 90%of his time beside me, curious about what I am doing, falling asleep in my arms while I am typing (literally!) So I love animals, but I guess in small doses! hehe I will say that the funniest moments of the weekend were when the ducks, who waddle the yard all day quacking away at the horses, would try to scare the basset hound. At first the dog would get scared and then realize he could scare them and lunge at them, the ducks would turn around and waddle away as fast as they could quacking their heads off. LOL

Hi maybutterfly!

Thanks for stopping by and your supportive message! I hope that cutting out the diet Coke works and helps your progress out! I know I am very wary of artificial sweeteners, especially the ones that give me headaches like aspartame.

Hope that you have a great day!
Mike

Great job over the weekend and on the lost lbs. Now, say good-bye to them forever and make your solemn vow to never weigh what you started at again.

You might want to check out the websites of the fast food chains and take a look at their nutrition charts. It really is an eye opener and helps you keep in mind exactly what you should be ordering when you find yourself at one of these places. I am finding that the more I know about food ahead of time, the easier it is to make good choices later.

Keep up the AWESOME job.

Hi Tracy!

Thanks for your support! I think I had a pretty good weekend, now if I can just keep it up!

I am so sorry to hear that you are stalled. I just saw that on your journal too. I think you are on the right track looking at Sunny's advice, retracing your steps and looking at your food log. Also you said you didn't eat a lot last week, maybe your body went into that nasty starvation mode where it gets worried and holds onto our fat for dear life? If you are interested in the CAP, you can check out their not frequently updated, as in years, but helpful and good overview website here . There are books also, specifically the Carbohydrate Addict's Lifespan Plan is a good start. (A tip if you want to buy it, on Amazon.com you can get it used, and most of the Hellers other books too, for like a penny. I am not kidding! lol There is shipping too, so it ends like $3. Not too bad, and of course as a disclaimer I am not affiliated with the Hellers or amazon, hehe!) For me the Plan makes a lot of sense from the patterns in my eating and weight gain. What I like also that there are no real "evil" foods, just you look at when you eat them and with what aka I can have my cake and eat it too. hehe! Corny, I know! If you have any specific questions about my experiences with the plan I will of course be glad to answer them!

Thanks! I hope to get the whole trip report finished soon, and don't worry, there is more rain to come and we haven't even gotten to me meeting Warwick Davis (Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi, The Leprechan, and Willow) in Epcot! hehe

Thanks again Tracy, I look forward to seeing your future success! And I did add my clippie, I am so proud! hehe

Bye for now,
Mike

Thanks Jamie!! It is great to be coke free, especially since if I was still drinking it I would have probably spent close to $10 on it this weekend. That's ten dollars I have now to save towards my next Disney trip! hehe

Bye for now,
Mike

That sounds like how I felt on saturday, didn't do any formal exercise, just spent several hours cleaning out the shed. I may have gained a couple pounds from inhaling dust, and all the dust that stuck to my sweat! I can't wait until I can work outside in the summer and not drown in it.

I am 112 hours coke/soda free and feel great. I definitely felt the headache this weekend but I think it just ganged up on me with the cold I picked up. I can take and don't really feel it today! I drank nice ice cold water all day, each day this weekend. Not sure if I am up to where I should be water wise yet but I am getting there! The only non water bev I have had is a small glass of pink lemonade with dinner Saturday night. I feel great about this change, I definitely feel better giving my body the water it needs instead of all the junk that comes in the cola!
Dude you had me going there for a half second. Excellent!! Man, if this sticks, and it IS sticking, this will be a major accomplishment for both of us. Just thinking about having to report any Dr. P violations here has been enough to keep me from bailing out. Today I got a powerade from the fountain in a Dr. Pepper cup

I tend to supplement my normal lunch sometimes with the $1 McD DblCheeseburgers, hockeypucks. I should actually eat the hockeypuck, probably more nutritious.

To put this in context though, I have much farther to go then your average dieter, as I have said before I could lose a fat man and still be a very fat man to the average person's perspective. So 10 off of me is not like 10lbs off of the 250lbs guy, etc. I would have been happy with staying the same, or even just losing 1lb, so this is motivating! Let's see if I can continue the downward progress and heck, even keep this 10lbs off would be nice.
Outstanding!!! in the field, farmer Mike! Here we go for week 2!
Carry on.

Sounds like a plan to me! Adios you dastardly pounds!

You are definitely right on track here! I am going to do my best to avoid most restaurants, especially fast food, for a few weeks as I get acclimated to my new lifestyle. I need to know what I am putting in my body if I am gonna be in charge. The junk at the fast food places is gone from my menu!

Thanks for the support and great ideas!
Mike

Hey Don!

Thanks for the supportive words dude! This summer humidity needs to go away I think. Now who do I call about that???

Not a bad idea! Track yourself down a Dr. Pepper sports bottle or big fountain cup, use it for your water and other bev. So you'll still see the name, but get the benefits of the new contents. Might be too big a trigger to stare at the name Dr. Pepper all day, but you never know! hehe

Be well man, on to second week indeed!
Mike

Hi All!

Just reporting in as I am not having the best night!
It is almost 9pm and I am just about to make dinner, so that is later than I like. I will probably make it small so I am not having too much too late but this is my first food since lunch so I am a bit hungry. I wanted to eat earlier but that did not happen due to several things. I know, no excuses but it happened so that brings us to now... I do have some good food for dinner, I am going to saute a chicken breast seasoned with chili powder and garlic, then saute some peppers and a bit of onion, smother the chicken in the peppers top with a little cheddar and melt. Have no salad sadly but I will be getting groceries soon (that's another story!). I have a potato so I will bake that up to go with. And of course my handy dandy water! hehe That is one thing I did well today, got in at least 64oz.

As for my groceries, the only time I really have to get them is as I type this! Tomorrow I will be gone all day with my grandparents, we are going to CT to visit my mom who normally is on the West coast but is out here for a short period. We will probably not get back til quite late. Wednesday I work til 4pm and then my dad & I have planned a "Guy's Night" for my 11yo nephew, we are taking him to see Batman Begins and to his fave restaurant for dinner. Hopefully I will be done with them in time to at least make a quick grocery run. I am worried about food for tomorrow, I know I might not be able to follow my plan to the T, but I will at least focus on portions again, and will be bringing my water bottle with me in the AM so I will be able to drink it on the way there and fill er up on the way back.

Ok, enough whining! I mean geez, I had a great week last week and was not 100% on track yet, if I can be 90% on track this week I should be happy! I think I am also cranky because I pulled a muscle in my back earlier moving some furniture and it aches. Wow, whine some more why don't I??? LOL

I hope that everyone out there in WISH-topia is having a great evening! I will not be online tomorrow at all, so I will catch everyone on Wednesday.

Happy & healthy days for all!
Mike

Hi Mike!

Thanks for the info. on the carb addicts plan. I'm going to look into it and that great deal on Amazon!

I know you ate dinner a little later than you wanted to last night, but you ate a healthy dinner and that is wonderful! I know that when my day doesn't go exactly as planned how easy it is to just run out and get fast food or to make other unhealthy food choices. However, you chose a healthy meal last night and I say that is a VICTORY!

It sounds like the next couple of days will be busy for you. Have a great time and remember your WISH friends are cheering you on!!! Go Mike!!!!
