HUNGRY with a side order of GRUMPY!!!

I was famished last night and continue to be insanely cookie monster hungry this morning. I was so hungry, I had myself convinced that a cheat was the right thing to do. My stomach feels like an endless black hole devouring anything in its path.

The devil on my shoulder……

convinced me that even though I went out for lunch, a nice visit to Taco Bell was in order to satiate my hunger.

The angel on my shoulder…..

looked the other way. No help there. I guess he was hungry too.

Sorry Clarence, Liz Hurley is going to win 10 out of 10 times. πŸ˜›

I didn’t go to Taco Bell. What???

I convinced myself to wait until I hit a new low before heading out for a cheat.  I made this plan expecting to hit 163 this morning, but instead of losing weight, I gained weight. 😦

So I am grumpy!!!

Weight Statistics


Even though I have dropped about 9 pounds in a short time, I wasn’t expecting a slowdown yet. All of that weight was water. I figured the slowdown wouldn’t hit until I dropped my low by a couple of pounds.

Yesterday’s Meal Plan

Breakfast – Eggs

Lunch – Grilled shrimp Caesar

Dinner – Tuna salad

Snack – Baked chicken

Calories – 1450

Biking – 0

Net Calories – 1450

I followed through on my tip. I stuck with the meal I picked online and had the grilled shrimp Caesar. I guess it is possible, the Caesar was LOADED with sodium which caused a very temporary slowdown.

Dang scale better move in the right direction tomorrow or it might find a new job as a piece of performance art smashed on the parking lot below my balcony. πŸ˜›

Biking Update

Steady winds of 20 to 30 mph. No thank you!

Tip Of The Day

There will be many frustrating days like the one I am having. You need to learn to deal with that frustration without grabbing the bag of Doritos or the box of donuts.

Make sure you have a good place to vent some frustration when the diet is making you GRUMPY!

I vent here and I vent a few other places online. Getting that frustration out and getting some sympathy from your fellow dieters can really make a huge difference in keeping you on the right path.

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow

  1. It is ok to focus on the devil on your shoulder every now and again, I didn’t realize it was Liz Hurley though….I always thought it was some Audi parts delivery guy at my work, I had better start paying closer attention!
    Your continued dedication keeps me wanting to achieve my own goals. I see the end result and I know that I can get there because Grumpy has gone before me. Thank you for showing the way!

    • Oh, I have no problem with cheats. If it weren’t for the big T-Giving Competition with Shonnie and Ed, I would have grabbed a cheat last night.

      It looks like Shonnie is going to run away with the competition which is great. She has been stuck for a while so good to see that scale moving down for her once again.

  2. […] for the TURKEY CHALLENGE guys I am down to 175.6 as of the AM weighing (on home scales) from 185 …. yeah babay … […]

  3. Awe .. Grumpy … you are so sweet! I was coming to cheer for your not getting off the menu or cheating and then you go and say nice things about me. It has been stuck so LONG! So glad to see the numbers going down. πŸ™‚
