Panic Shift!

Tip Of The Day

You need to stick with what works but you also need to learn to adapt and make changes to things that don’t work.

My panic weight has been 175. When I hit 175, I slam on the breaks and get back to work. The problem is that by the time I get all the way up to 175, I’m spiraling too far out of control. So as of today, I am lowering my panic weight to 170. That way I won’t get quite as out of control as I have been since Easter.

175 was leaving me too much rope to hang myself. So 170 should help me stay a bit more in control. If something isn’t working, stop being stubborn. Adapt!!!

Weight Statistics


I think I will be considerably lower tomorrow. Atkins is kicking in.

I made quite a few trips down the hallway today so I am pretty sure I dropped a considerable chunk of water weight today. I’m still over my old panic weight and WAY over my new panic weight. My new panic weight should help me have a tad more resolve to keep away from the Wednesday lunch. ย Well, unless it is the seafood feast. We have only had that once in 5 months so I am not going to skip the seafood feast if it appears. I’m thinking this week will be poboys or maybe even healthy chicken week. We haven’t had the healthy chicken meal in a while.

Biking Update

Had I known how windy it was going to be up on the levee, I might have come up with a good excuse for not riding. Wow, that ride beat me up. Well, the first part beat me up, then the rest was pretty easy once I wasn’t riding directly into the heart of darkness!

Road Marker 410 – 10 miles

I already have the last two weeks beat. Not hard since I didn’t ride my bike at all over the previous two weeks. I’ll rest my legs today and probably get back up on the levee either tomorrow or maybe Wednesday. I guess I’ll check the forecast for wind and pick whatever day looks like it might be better.

Today’s Menu

Breakfast – Turkey burger with cheese

Lunch – None – Finally kicked the fruit habit.

Dinner – Chicken with salad

Snack – Turkey burger with cheese, cheese

Calories – 1,200

My body has become accustomed to a much higher calorie level for the last several weeks. It was NOT HAPPY with my abbreviated menu today. I hope Ketosis kicks in fast so the hunger will dissipate a bit.


I’ve been having a tough time and a few of my long time friends have also been having a tough time. I am tossing down the gauntlet. Time for all of us to get back to work. Enough playing around. ย I dare any of you to try to lose more weight than me in the month of May. ๐Ÿ˜›

Oh yes I did!

I can whip you all. ๐Ÿ˜€

You get a break because I already know I am going to drop about 2 to 3 pounds tomorrow and that won’t count since the CONTEST starts with the weigh-in on the 1st. Good luck, you are going to need it. ๐Ÿ˜€

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow

  1. I’m in! Weigh-in tomorrow am…

  2. I will start over with a brand new weigh in tomorrow as well.

    • Fantastic. Competition can be fun. Any smack talk from me should be taken as tongue in cheek and only playful in nature. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Well … I am 3 days behind and have a serious handicap of NOT weighing on that day … but I could enter any who. I know it would be fun for you to whoop my buttacks after last time. hehehehe. I am doing heavy lifting … be curious to see if the weight gain would drop off before the end of the month though. hehehe I will think about it and let you know tomorrow for sure. ๐Ÿ˜€
