Feeling great today. Passed on another catered lunch in the office today. Pizza - haven’t had one of these in over 150 days. Afternoon we had an offsite event at the food bank and hit the golf driving range after. I used to play golf once ... Read more
Day 150 - staying positive
Tuesday, May 21, 2019      3 comments

I’d lie if I say I’m not a little bit disappointed. At 150 days, and somehow gained 4lbs the last few days. Was already down 72lbs and was averaging 10lbs per month lost. Know I hit a few snags, but was hoping I’d do a little bit better. T... Read more

Monday, May 20, 2019      3 comments

Big blunder yesterday. Lot’s of things went wrong. Headed out for a social event, with potluck. All food with carbs, rice, noodles, pasta, etc. Thought I give it a try and do the polite thing and partake. Didn’t necessarily overeat, but ma... Read more

Didn’t feel too good last night, went to bed early. Feels like I have a bit of a bug. But at the same time made me recognize that I haven’t had a headache in a very long time. Could be many things, but definitely has to do with losing weight and... Read more

Recently I notice that although I am somewhat mentally exhausted, I have significantly more energy left at the end of the week these days. At my highest weight, and pretty much all of 2017 and 2018, I would be wiped out by Friday, and spend the ... Read more

Great week, all is going well. Stress at work, but I am committed to look at the glass half full, and I did get quite a bit of work done. Preparing to host and facilitate at a conference in a couple of weeks, so stress and pressure will ramp up ... Read more

Day 142 - getting over the hump
Monday, May 13, 2019      8 comments

70lbs seems to be the first major hump to get over. Hovering around 68-69lbs down and need to push myself to maintain my discipline and get re-focused. Old habits die hard is how the saying goes. I need to watch out that they do not sneak b... Read more

I love sausages! They were a staple growing up. So, recently I was reminiscing about food I ate when I was growing up, and got inspired and thought I will start to make my own sausages. For a low carb diet, not a bad choice, and if I make them m... Read more

Thursday, May 09, 2019      2 comments

Ok, I definitely did not look at this this morning at my weigh-in as a minor setback, but a potential major screw up. But, I have reflected on the facts and put some perspective on this since this morning. The Problem: - Weighed-in almos... Read more

Just got back home and feel I am back to safety. After almost a week on the road and eating catered meals all week, it was great to have a home cooked meal. Tomorrow is my first weigh-in since last weekend, dreading it a bit, but feel confi... Read more
