Seesaw Week

Up down, up down, up down. My weight keeps bouncing all around even though I have done a great job of eating the last 10 days.

Weight Statistics


It isn’t going up much, but it is driving me bonkers trying to finally crash through into the 160s.

Sam – 170

 Me – 170.8

The epic battle continues. Sam will probably give me a weight update tomorrow. He does not weight every day like I do.

Yesterday’s Meal Plan

Breakfast – Burger patty and cheese

Lunch – Broiled chicken and salad

Dinner – Broiled chicken and salad

Snack – Cheese

Calories – 1300

Biking – 0

Net Calories – 1300

It is that time again. Just about out of everything, so a trip to Walmart is in the picture.  I still have plenty of Tuna, but the chicken and hamburger are almost gone.

Biking Update

No ride on Tuesday. I came to the conclusion last night that I was using the 20 mile ride to skip all rides. So I axed the 20 mile ride. Until the weather cools, I am not going to do a 20 mile ride. Just so you know I did get a 10 mile ride in today. Read more about it tomorrow.

Tip Of The Day

How does one get started? This is for you Betty K.. 😀

Pick a diet plan. It is easy to learn about every diet plan in existence on the net. Study different diets and pick one that you think you can stick to.

Some of you may need your doctor to okay your new diet plan. In all likelihood your doctor will be happy that you are trying to lose weight no matter what plan you pick, unless you go with the Junk Food Diet.  😀

Once your doctor has signed off and you have a plan, you need to clean out the pantry and fridge. Get rid of ALL of the junk.  DO NOT EAT IT. Don’t clear the pantry by eating all the chips and other junk.  If you are married and have kids, this will be tough. Try to have nothing but healthy snacks in the house. When your spouse and kids want a treat, your spouse can take them out for ice cream of some other treat.  It is very hard to lose weight with unhealthy food within reach. I  would not have lost this weight if unhealthy food was within reach.

Find support. Your friends and family can be great but they really don’t know what you are up against. It is much better to find support like Weight Watchers or other groups. If you are nervous or uncomfortable with groups there are a million online groups you can join to give you plenty of support when needed and a place to vent when needed.

Log everything. Your weight, exercise, calorie consumption, food. Everything. is a great place to do this and seek support.

In order to log your diet info, you need to know how many calories you are eating. Read all labels and measure everything. When you eat out, try to find a restaurant that has nutritional information online.

Weigh yourself at least once a week. I weigh daily but once a week is okay too. Do not wait a month.

Just remember to forget yesterday’s mistakes and don’t worry about tomorrow. Just get through today the best that you can and you will reach your goal. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I can see it clearly now. 😀

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
