A Good Night

I was nervous about my trip to Casa Garcia. I was starving by the time I arrived at the restaurant and the second the basket of chips hit the table, the cookie monster side of my brain tried to take over.

I ordered the chicken with onions, peppers and avocados. Somehow I was able to keep my hand away from the chips and I didn’t touch the rice on my plate. I just ate the chicken, onions, peppers and avocados. It was a good night.

Weight Statistics

323/187.9/175
Re-fattening Peak – 206
Contest Starting Weight {office scale} – 200.2
Current Weight {office scale} – 191.6
Current Competition Loss – 8.6
Day 18 of 90
Flawless Day – 16

That was my reaction to the scale this morning. Dang thing finally decided to move in the right direction. I just hope the loss holds tomorrow and doesn’t fluctuate back up.

I need to drop another 1.5 pounds in the next 4 days.  I need at least a 2.5 pound drop this week to keep pace with the contest leaders.

Only 72 days to go. 😛

Today’s Menu

Breakfast – Burger patty with cheese

Lunch – Pork loin with cheese

Dinner – Pork loin with salad

Snack – Almonds

Calories – 1250

The first two weeks of the contest, I had a nasty cold so I ate fruit most days to give me a bit of a vitamin boost. That cold is finally gone so I am dropping any additional fruit.

I’m hoping that I will get a nice easy water loss when I hit full Atkins.

The Contest

Mardi Gras started this weekend. I’m hoping some of the contestants decided to head out and party with plenty of booze and food.   King Cakes will start appearing with more frequency this week or so I hope.  I need the other contestants to slip up. 😛

I need at least a 2.5 pound drop this week to keep up the pace with the rest of the gang.  That pace is going to be tough. Last year, I was only able to drop about 1.2 pounds each week after the first couple. I did cheat some last year and I don’t plan to cheat at all this year.  72 miserable days to go. 😛

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
