OPPW: Week Four – 297.0lbs

So, I made my goal, and I’m one more pound down. I have to admit, I’m starting to feel a bit more energetic, and people have noticed the change in my face. I really didn’t eat well this week, nor did I do my exercises, so I’m sort of surprised that I still made my…

OPPW: Week Three – 298.0lbs

So while I’m sitting here drinking some Sprite and enjoying a slice of pizza, I’m still pretty happy with how my week went. I ended up getting a fair bit of exercise and sun, eating pretty decently, and getting back on track for drinking low or zero calorie drinks. I need to work on increasing…

OPPW: Week Two – 301.2lbs

So this week, I went in the wrong direction. Despite being sick for two days, and eating nothing but saltines, rice and ginger ale for two days, I still managed to gain weight. I guess it doesn’t help that all I did for those two days was lie in bed, for the most part. Even…

Weight Loss This Weekend

I have to admit, this weekend wasn’t so great for my weight loss goals. While I did do a ton of walking (probably close to seven hours in three days now), I didn’t eat as health consciously as I know that I need to. I did, immediately upon coming home, juice myself some fruits, and…

OPPW: Week One – 298.8lbs

So, it looks like I’ve made my first week goal (300.4lbs last week / -1.6lbs), despite not eating perfectly. I have been getting in a good hour of walking or more every day. I have been drinking more water, juicing, and eating lots of fruit and veggies. I’m planning on buying some multivitamins today so…

I Never Feel Full

I never feel full, I never feel satiated, I always crave sugar, salt and fat. It is more than a minor annoyance. How do people find the willpower to focus on eating and drinking right for long periods of time? I sometimes thing that I should just concede and start trying to find a way…

Three Days With Mild Headaches

So, at first I thought it was because of all the exercise I was getting in the crazy heat. I was sweating up a storm, and not getting enough water, but the last few days, I’ve been getting headaches, and I’m starting to wonder if I could be just as sensitive to the Splenda sweetener…

First Time Juicing

Today, I made my first fruit juice with my new juicer. My roommate was interested to see how it worked, the consistency of what came out and how it tasted. I quickly cut an apple into a few pieces and tossed it in, added two strawberries and half a dozen grapes and out came a…

OPPW: Official Start – 300.4lbs

So today, I begin working my butt off in hopes of losing one pound per week. Today, I received my juicer, and a fan for my room. I went for a ninety minute photo walk to get my exercise in, and I drank five glasses of Brita filtered water. Other than some yogurt, I didn’t…

OPPW: Pre-Start – 299.2lbs

So tomorrow, I officially start my one pound per week project. Today, I got my scale, the only thing that was delivered by Purolator when I was actually home. Tomorrow, I should receive the juicer. Currently, the scale is saying I am 299.2 lbs. This is the heaviest I’ve ever weighed, and while I was…
