Unexpected Drop!

I wasn’t expecting a drop today because of the two tons of sodium I ate yesterday but even with all the sodium, I dropped two pounds. Maybe Atkins kicked in and flushed out some water weight. I’m hoping the drop sticks and I don’t get a bounce up tomorrow.

Weight Statistics


I’m not sure how much I trust the scale this morning. I think I might get hit with a gain tomorrow. I ate a little too much today and I am really hungry at the moment. I need a lock for my fridge and I need the through out the key. 😛

Yesterday’s Menu

Breakfast – Turkey burger with cheese

Lunch – Turkey burger with cheese

Dinner – Rotisserie chicken with salad

Snack – baked chicken, cheese sticks

Calories -1615

Biking – Nope

Net Calories – 1615

Calories are a bit high.  I want to be under 1500 at least until I get back to my pre-Thanksgiving weight.  I need to get some biking done but the cold weather has neutralized my motivation at the moment.

Those turkey burgers taste too darn good. I want to go mow another one down, but I’m all done with my calories for the day. 😛


Those things taste great! Not sure if they really taste great or if I am starving. 😀

Biking Update

I’m not sure what I am going to do now that the cold weather is probably here to stay until February. Last winter I stopped walking during the winter months and switched to crunches and push-ups.  I might do the same thing this winter but I am not sure at the moment.

My sister has one of these elliptical machines and her apartment isn’t too far from mine. I might switch to that for the winter. Only time will tell. It would be a hassle going over there several times a week. Maybe a couple of times a week and the rest I will do crunches and push-ups.

Tip Of The Day

Get In A Competition!

If your office does a Biggest Loser competition, then make sure you join in. I’ve been involved in about 4 competitions the last 20 months and they have all helped me lose weight.

I wasn’t as successful with the last one. Shonnie kicked my butt but….. I didn’t have much weight left to lose.

If you can’t get involved with a Biggest Loser competition, then find a weight loss buddy and start your own competition. It can really help out. Just ask Shonnie. She was stuck for several months but she crushed us in the Thanksgiving Competition. Heck, she was 20 pounds heavier than me when the competition started and now she has wasted away to the point she weighs 8 pounds less than me.  Wow!

Competition can really motivate you like nothing else. 😀

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
