Caffeine

So, for the last few weeks, I’ve been having a can of Coca-cola each day as my caffeine source, much like people drink coffee each morning. The advantage of this is that it gives me a bit of pep, as I’m not a morning person, and I enjoy the taste of it. Unfortunately, it has…

Weight Loss Again

So, since I stopped actively working on my weight loss, I’ve gained back nearly twenty pounds out of the thirty that I had lost last year, and things that weren’t tight are now tight again. I could go on about all the excuses of why I gained back the weight, but the main one is…

Weight Loss Update – Three Weeks In

So, I have to say that my weight loss is going pretty darn well. My last weigh in about two months ago was at 307 lbs. I assumed that I was probably around 310 pounds when I started tracking calories, and reducing my carbohydrates. Of course my scale was broken at the start, so I…

Eating Healthy: Frustration and Reaction

So as many of you might have noticed, I’ve stopped my one pound per week project. I hope to get back into losing weight, but I’m super frustrated with the idea of eating healthy. It looks like everything I enjoy is bad for me. Every diet/no-sugar/low-fat product comes with its own side effects, and I’m…

OPPW: Week Eight – 294.8lbs

Despite eating well, walking lots, and even doing some light weight lifting, my weight didn’t move down very much. It can be frustrating to not see the kind of results I’m hoping for, but I continue to soldier on. At this point, I should be nearly three pounds lighter than I am. I have to…

OPPW: Week Seven – 295.4lbs

So, I’ve made my goal for this week, and made up for my poor showing last week. While I’m still behind where I’d like to be in this whole thing, I’m making progress and that is what matters. Some interesting things of note: I was better with eating this week. Keeping my caloric intake down.…

OPPW: Week Six – 297.4lbs

So, I didn’t hold to my previous week’s weight, I actually gained a little more than a pound. I’m thinking about joining the new gym that opened up pretty much around the corner from where I live. It doesn’t have the greatest facilities, but maybe between walking often and working out, I can step this…

Brutal Heat: Laziness and Bad Eating are the Result

So this week, I’m sure I’m not going to reach my weight loss goals, mostly because the weather this week has been super unusual. With the constant heat, it isn’t even like I can get out for a walk in the late evenings. I’ve never been a fan of the weather extremes during the summer…

OPPW: Week Five – 296.2lbs

While I didn’t quite meet my goal this week, I came within striking distance, and the biggest thing is for me to keep seeing the scale have smaller numbers. I’m hopeful that next week, I can get to 295.0lbs, but we will see. This weekend, I am visiting family in Kingston and any kind of…

Emotional Eating

It is definitely hard not to eat poorly when I feel down. This weekend was a disaster for eating, and I’m going to have to be very focused the rest of this week if I want to meet my goal. I started back on being smarter this evening for supper, and I’m trying my best…
