Crawling Along!

The weight loss is moving at a snail’s pace.  I’ve been dropping a tiny bit each day for several days.  I’m not sure I have ever has such a consistent tiny weight loss. I’m thinking I might have to add the darn bike into the mix to keep up with everyone although I am not sure keeping up is possible.

Once again this week we had another INSANE loss from someone unless it was a typo. See for yourself. Crazy numbers being put up. Congrats.

Keep up the great work everybody. Keep working hard and you might have a chance to keep up with me. 😛

Well, not “J.”

And don’t panic about the big numbers being posted. Nobody can keep that up past the first few weeks, then things start to level off. 😛

Weight Statistics


I keep dropping .2 of a pound each day. Not terrible but it isn’t going to help me in the contest. I need to do better than that which means I might need to break out the darn bike even though it is still 1000 degrees out there.

I can’t eat less than I have been eating. 1200 to 1550 is about as low as I can go at the moment so in order to burn a few extra calories I might need to break out the bike but I am worried that will cause some weight gain in my legs and I might not see any really loss for weeks if I get back to riding.

The old Atkins magic needs to kick back in.  😛

No! Wrong Atkins!

That one. I’ve been keeping close to 20 grams of carbs a day….in theory. I might need to tweak my coffee a little more and use even less sweet n low to make sure I am really close to the 20 carb number. I also might need to get down to just one bag a day of pistachios but I am not sure that is going to happen.

Today’s Menu

It is going to be a LONG night. It is only 5pm and I’ve eaten up all of my calories for the day. 😦

Breakfast – Pork loin with cheese

Lunch – Baked chicken

Dinner – Baked chicken with salad

Snack – Pork loin with cheese and pistachios

Calories – 1550

I should be able to get through the night without a cheat because I know there is a decent chance of a cheat tomorrow at the birthday party. I do think it is about time for a planned cheat. If I get through tomorrow without a cheat that will be 21 perfect days without a cheat.  Not sure I can hold off all the way until the Fantasy Football draft.


Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
