What’s My Name?

Sunday Up!

Monday Up!

Up Again on Tuesday!

3 flawless days , yet the scale has moved up 1 pound since Saturday!

What’s my name?

Grumpy!

On Saturday, it looked like a 3 pound loss by Thursday would be easy. Here I sit on Tuesday and it looks like I will scrape by with a 1 pound loss.

I can’t blame the jalapenos. I didn’t have any last night and I had only one portion on Sunday. My calories and sodium intake have been around 1300 since Saturday.

The office has been a bit quiet this week. There haven’t been any tasty treats dropped on the grazing table. Tomorrow is free lunch Wednesday but I think the meal will be somewhat healthy thus it won’t tempt me at all.

I do have a lunch & learn on Thursday and I know we are getting the GOOD poboys, Hot Roast Beef and Fried Shrimp.  It will be tough to keep my hands away from those, but I will.

Today’s Menu

Breakfast – Burger patty and cheese

Lunch – None

That darn scale BETTER move in the right direction tomorrow or else!

Tune in tomorrow!

Happy Dieting, see you later

Weekend Wrap

Small Update

I had a solid weekend. I didn’t cheat.  I am a wee bit grumpy today because I had a real nice BIG drop yesterday but almost a pound decided to rejoin the collective today.

I can’t complain too much because I should be headed for a real good week in the weight loss competition.  This week, I should easily pass my loss total from last year’s competition.

Weight Statistics

Friday – 180.8

Saturday – 178.5

Sunday – 179.3

I had a feeling I might be a touch dehydrated on Saturday so I was expecting a little bounce back today but not 8/10 of a pound. I’m still on pace for a 3 pound drop by Thursday unless the scale continues to climb up.  It had better not. 😛

The Saturday drop was a bit of a shock, 2.3 pounds.

I was expecting a nice drop but not that nice. I didn’t believe the scale so I reset the scale and weighed again, 178.4.  So the second weigh-in was even lower. I took a shower, shaved and reset the scale again, 178.3.  I stuck with the highest number and as I said, I had a feeling it would creep up today.

I was out running errands most of the day Friday, so I didn’t have much to drink and then I fell asleep early.  I didn’t have close to the normal level of fluids for the day thus the big dehydrated number on Saturday. I’m hoping to drop some of the gain tomorrow. I had a little bit too much sodium on Saturday.  I picked up some jalapenos at the store on Friday and ate more than I should have Saturday.

Low – 160.5 / Re-fattening Peak – 206
Contest Starting Weight {office scale} – 200.2
Current Weight {office scale} – 183.2
Current Competition Loss – 17.0
Day 53 of 90
Flawless Days – 49
Contest Cheats – 1

I need to keep the cheats to 1. That will be a great accomplishment if I can make it the rest of the way with only one cheat.

The Office Competition

I’m hoping the rest of The Biggest Loser contestants slow down this week. I can’t drop any calories. The only thing I can do is start working out but I haven’t been able to find the motivation to do that.  If they keep the heat on, then I might start hitting the bike for the last 4 weeks. I’m going to wait to see the numbers on Thursday before making a decision on exercise. 😛

I kept the jalapenos under control today. I need to maintain control over those things because too many can easily cause a water weight spike.   I bought those things at Sam’s on Friday. I was just about to leave when out of the corner of my eye I spotted the giant jug of jalapenos.

I should have walked in the opposite direction but I needed something different to spice up my meals. I’m actually a little disappointed in the very mild kick from that brand. Seems like they have taken almost all of the heat out of them. 😛

Have a great Monday! Happy Dieting, see you soon

Biggest Loser Week 7 Results

        The Contest

I’m still on top in the weight loss competition, for at least another week. The office scale showed a 1.2 pound drop this week even with the Thursday Fajita Fiasco.

Several contestants posted some really big losses this week. Jess dropped 3.6 pounds to move from 5th place to 2nd place. Rich has been bouncing up and down with huge numbers but he finally put together a couple of big weeks which moved him up to 3rd place.  Even though he is in 3rd, he now holds the largest weight loss with 17.2 pounds.

I’ve dropped 17. I only dropped 18 last year so I should be able to break my competition record. Makes me happy. 😀

The Top 5 By %

8.49%

7.29%

7.28%

5.39%

4.41%

The bottom of the leader board is not looking as strong this week.  They didn’t have a very good week. LE gained.  I was getting nervous with his climb up the charts but he finally stumbled.

Mr. National Guard was a strong contender last year but he has given up.  He keeps hitting the Popeye’s across the street from work.

I do need to keep my eye on CAP. Now that Mardi Gras is over, he claims he is going to seriously hit the diet and exercise.

I still think my main competition going forward will be Rich. He has been running like crazy and I think he is starting to get excited about his weight loss.  Jess & Rich. They are going to be tough to beat and I think I might have to get on that bike to win. They are combining exercise with diet. I am hitting the diet harder but they seem to be offsetting my diet with their exercise.

I was up slightly on the scale today. I’m not sure what happened with the two scales but I was only down .5 on my home scale even though I dropped 1.2 on the office scale. I think I might have had a errant high reading last week on the office scale. Not sure what caused that little hiccup.  It is clear to me that I will not be able to relax or cheat anymore until the competition is over.

Someone had to the nerve to bring 4 dozen beignets to work today!!!

Breakfast – None

Lunch – Almonds

Dinner – Pork loin with salad

Snack – Pork loin

Calories – 1200

I had to skip breakfast for the weigh-in but I had some extra pork this evening. I need to have the same kind of great weekend I had last weekend. That is going to be tough to repeat.

I was just added to another committee at work which means one more bad lunch opportunity each month. I also might get stuck on a 3rd committee which would mean 3 bad lunch opportunities each month on top of the Wednesday Free Lunch or the weekly webinars and seminars. 😛

Happy Dieting, see you Sunday

I’ve been flawless since the Mexican restaurant debacle last Thursday.  After an initial spike up I’ve had a steady drop. I would love for at least a small dip down tomorrow.

Today was a rough day at work. The smell of garlic bread in the office was overwhelming!

Today we had daube, veal parmesan, spaghetti and salad with GARLIC BREAD. As you can see, the jackals devoured the lunch in record time. Almost everything was gone in 15 minutes.

I didn’t mind skipping most of the lunch, but the garlic bread nearly killed me. The whole office smelled like garlic bread all afternoon.  The smell only went away when 3pm hit and then the smell was replaced by buttery popcorn. 😛

I still love the pork loin but I’m not loving the burgers.  I think it might be time to give eggs another try. I think next time I hit the grocery store, I will buy some eggs and bacon to replace the burgers.

The Contest

Tomorrow is the week 7 weigh-in.  6 people used their Free Pass last week so it will be interesting to see if they were able to drop the weight they gained over Mardi Gras. It will be even more interesting to see if Jess dropped the weight from her Mexican disaster. I bet she not only lost the Mexican disaster but also dropped a pound.  I wonder if LE will continue his climb to the top of the charts this week.  I guess we shall find out tomorrow.

Happy dieting, see you soon

Weekend Update

The damage from the Thursday night debacle was about what I thought it would be. I thought the scale would pop up about 3 pounds and it did. I went from 181.8 on Wednesday to 184.5 on Saturday.  I figured out that my total calories on Thursday was probably around 3k so I really shouldn’t have gained much REAL weight. Most of the gain was water and sure enough most of it is gone as of today. I dropped 2 pounds from yesterday’s weight.

Day 46 of 90

42 Flawless Days

Only 1 real bad day and 42 flawless days out of 46 days. Not too bad. The good news is that the competition is over the halfway mark. More good news is that I am only .7 of a pound from my low last Wednesday.   I should be able to get back to my low and maybe even drop a tiny amount by the Thursday weigh-in. Unless that stupid pattern starts up again and today is my lowest weight for the week, but I won’t let that happen.

Today’s Menu

Breakfast – None

Lunch – Pork loin with salad

Dinner – Burger patty with cheese

Snacks – Almonds

Calories – 1200

It is a bit rough getting back to Atkins after just 1 single slip up. My body was SCREAMING for more carbs all weekend. My brain tried to convince me to celebrate the halfway point of the competition by diving head first into the Mardi Gras King Cake Ice Cream I have stowed away in the freezer.

I stayed away from my freezer…. for now. 😛

That will be my birthday treat at the end of March. My birthday is on March 7th but I won’t celebrate my birthday until the competition is over.

I’m hoping I won’t cheat again until the end of the competition. If I don’t cheat, I will win the competition.  I do think Jess will be right back in the top 3 this week, but I think I can stay on top if I don’t cheat for the final 6 weeks. 😛

Have a great week.

Happy Dieting, see you soon
