Weigh-In Wednesday

I am happy to report that I have lost 1.5 lbs this week.  Sometimes I don't know how I have managed to do it.  For instance yesterday I was headed to a job that was going to take me 6 hours so I grabbed 2 oatmeal from McDonalds, 580 calories and a few hours later and for rest of job I nibbled on my big protein bar, 400.  So basically I had 1000 calories by 4pm.  So I was worried about how much calories I would consume at dinner.  I was hungry.  I had put some boneless pork ribs in the crock pot in the morning so when I got home I just shredded the meat, put it on a baking dish and put some bbq sauce on it.  I broiled it and voila, bbq sandwiches (on hamburgar buns) but I also decided to make some lazy nachos which is just some chips in a dish, pour salsa on it and sprinkle mixed cheese.  After I had consumed 2/3 of the burger I realized that I really didnt want more of that but more of the chips.  So I stopped eating that and got more chips.

So there you have it.  Oh and when I started tracking my weight loss I was in the 280's, it is so nice to say I am in the 260's now.  Ok ok I know its cheesy but technically I am.

Have a great day everyone!


  1. That's not cheesy, that's amazing! I remember when I hit the 250's from the 270's - EXCITING! You're doing it all on your own, and you should be so proud. :)

  2. Hey, I brag about every ten pounds I lose! You are doing a great job!

  3. I think it is really important to see that we can eat "regular" food and still lose weight by just keeping our portion sizes reasonable and making as healthy food choices as we can most of the time. So many people think that in order to lose weight they have to eat low-carb or some other unsustainable diet. I think that just sets them up for failure because most people don't stick with those diets for the long-term.

  4. Very nice! I agree with Ronnie - that is not cheesy. It's great!
