The weight loss came crashing to a halt and stalled today. In fact, I gained a tiny amount. Probably a result of some late night eating and too many calories. I need to get up to the levee for a good long ride on Monday to get things moving again.
Yawn! I’ve been sleeping off and on all day because I was up super late last night and the time change always knocks my body clock out of sync for a few days.
Looks like all the water weight is gone so the easy weight loss is over. I need to keep my calories lower and I need to get more consistent with my exercise to lose more weight and put some pressure on Shonnie and OptifastLoser in the Big T-Giving Competition.

The LSU game had me all wound up so I couldn’t get to sleep until super late last night. I was super hungry and the evil side of my brain wanted to hit up some fast. Instead of heading out, I chowed down on some Atkins approved food. Better than hitting Taco Bell but the calorie and sodium count were too high.
It also appears that those darn turkey burgers are going to be a problem. They taste too darn good so I am going to have an extremely tough time keeping to my portion limit.
No ride on Saturday. I just couldn’t seem to get the energy or motivation to head out for a ride.
I wanted to head out for 4 rides last week, but only got out for 3 rides for a total of 30 miles. Hopefully, I can get 4 rides done this week.
Tip Of The Day
Be sure you are drinking enough water. Your body needs water to burn off and convert fat to energy so make sure you drink you 64 ounces a day.
I am not a huge fan of water. I did drink nothing but water for about the first 9 months of my diet. Then I started drinking some coffee and then some zero calorie crystal light type drinks.
Some people are worried that coffee can lead to stalls in your weight loss. Maybe true for some people but I’ve dropped an additional 70 pounds since I started drinking coffee.
Whatever you decide to drink, make sure it is low-calorie and low carb. Stop drinking those sugary death bombs. I used to drink a TON TON TON of coke. In 20 months, I have cheated plenty of times, but I still haven’t had a coke since I started my diet. It would probably taste like syrup.
Drink your water and make sure you stay away from sugar bombs.
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
PS: I posted this last night and it showed up on my FB page but it didn’t show up on WordPress until this morning. Not sure what happened. WordPress has been a bit buggy the last couple of days.
