Friday, February 21, 2020      4 comments

First week back on track, and it was a great week. Did well planning and prepping my meals. Stuck to my planned meals and except for a planned and budgeted ice cream treat, the week went flawless. Coming out of the fog and feeling gre... Read more
DAY 6/600 - so far, so good!
Thursday, February 20, 2020      4 comments

Great week so far. Well planned and executed. Had quite a few episodes of serious cravings throughout the week, but held steady and looked ahead to the next meal. Loosing quite a bit of water in the beginning, as usual, by cutting out all s... Read more

Wednesday, February 19, 2020      7 comments

Over the Christmas Holidays (finally after my wife kept pushing me for forever) I scheduled a Physical, probably the first in over 3 years. Actually December 31st, to be exact, so I could make sure it falls into last years insurance year. A... Read more
Day 4/600 - good energy
Tuesday, February 18, 2020      10 comments

Four days in, had a very productive day. Feel like a cloud is lifting and I can maintain focus throughout the day. I have much more energy and I am also in a much better mood when I don’t have to think about my next “carb fix”. Back to my u... Read more
Day 3/600 - great day
Monday, February 17, 2020      5 comments

Overall great day. Was quite productive and got a bit caught up. The interesting thing is, if I do not start the day with carbs, I do not get "hungry", or cravings, rather. If I do start the day with carbs, and do get my cravings, I don't ... Read more

Spend today cooking food for the next few days. Actually have had a great day. Not much activity, but updated my tracking sheets, cooked and made some plans for the next few days. Feels like I am in the right mindset again. Yes, absol... Read more
Day 1/600 - take 2 - Back, and on it, for good......200 good days and 200 bad days
Saturday, February 15, 2020      7 comments

Finally got myself up again and re-commited to tackle this again. Had a great run of 200 days last year - did everything right, made great changes, lost 80+ lbs. and then - snap, like a light switch, complete disengaged and slipped into all my o... Read more
Day 215 - super productive
Wednesday, July 24, 2019      6 comments

Not surprising, but rather refreshing that I had a couple of really productive days at work. Have been doing exceedingly well with my food choices the last few days. I realize that as soon as I get back on track with my eating, my mind clears up... Read more
Day 214 - confused scale
Tuesday, July 23, 2019      4 comments

May need to get another scale...... I usually log my weight daily, after stepping on an off and the scale showing 3 times the same weight. Usually out of 4 times, it shows 3 times the same. The last couple of days I have had to step on and off a... Read more
Day 210 - like Sisyphus
Friday, July 19, 2019      8 comments

Sometimes it feels like I live the life of Sisyphus. Pushing the bolder up the hill, only to have it roll down again. In the past, I would have pretty much given up by now, frustrated with a plateau and my focus seemingly trailing off slowly. ... Read more
Day 208 - more energy
Wednesday, July 17, 2019      7 comments

I often notice, and keep reminding myself, that I do have a lot more energy than only a couple of months ago. Also, being able to stay focused on tasks at work, not worrying about my next carb fix, is making a big difference in my productivity. ... Read more
Day 207 - big NSV!
Tuesday, July 16, 2019      14 comments

Sitting on a plane, doors are about to close, no time to write much today, but must share that today I do not need a seatbelt extender. Super excited and happy. On most planes I still need one, so this is a rather rare occasion and it’s been a... Read more
Day 206 - extended plateau
Monday, July 15, 2019      8 comments

Somewhat frustrating, but I am still not showing much improvement on the scale. Have been doing well last week, and didn’t binge on the weekend, but the weight seems not to want to go down. Have to remind myself and be patient, eventually things... Read more

Finishing a very productive week. A bit exhausted, but ready for the weekend. Ate well all week and finally see things are coming together again. Struggled a bit this evening with sticking to my planned meal (craved some sushi today), but ... Read more

Things are going exceeding well again. Very productive week and eating all meals as planned this week. Happy to have a couple of weeks working from the office, allowing me to get back into my routine. Still trying to get over the hump and b... Read more
