At 3:20 I am really hungry and opt for a snack. Celery sticks, tuna dip and more water!


Lunch includes a salad made with spring mix, spinach, a little iceberg lettuce, leftover baby Brussels sprouts and chopped leftover hamburger, a drizzle of fat-free French salad dressing and some salad crunchy topping at 12:30. I also have a big cup of water.

This Morning's Update

I have gained a bit of weight recently, and I have been plagued with health problems. I feel a need to return to putting only healthy things in my body to help me heal. In the name of accountability, I decided to return here to post pics of what I am eating so that I do not spam readers of my main blog. Today I weight 257.8 pounds. That is up about 25 pounds from my more comfortable weight but at the same time not so high that I can't sleep, walk or that my blood sugar is completely off the charts. I want to stop it now to avoid all those things.

Today I am starting my day off at 8:15 with a some leftover baby Brussels sprouts, which I sauteed in a little canola oil with salt and pepper. Then I added two eggs and scrambled. I added a little extra salt to the final plated scramble. I also have a large mug of black dark roast coffee. I'm not going to fuss too much with the photos so the color may not be true to life.

I followed my eating plan for 3 weeks. I did find it a successful way to lose weight. The last few days I tracked though, and realized that I was typically eating under 1200 calories a day which of course would explain a weight loss.

I am now back to simply tracking. I may follow a similar eating plan again in the future though. It was useful in that I didn't have to think much about what I was eating.

I will not be taking a day off from my food plan this week. I feel like I have been struggling all week to deal with not eating right on Sunday. I think the best thing to do is to stick to the plan right now.

Just Because

It is week to on my new eating plan test. I hardly had time to eat today, and I am tired. I have nothing else to add.

Guinea Pig Progress

So, in the six days that I have been strictly following my new eating plan, I have lost 10.2 pounds. This doesn't surprise me. I think my scale was off this morning though so perhaps my total is closer to 8 pounds. Regardless, I did meet my goal of losing at least 4 pounds in 6 days.

This week I am going to do the same thing only take Sunday off. In the past, mixing it up with high calories days has led to better weight loss for me, and tomorrow is Easter Sunday. I will set my goal tomorrow based on my weight tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow is my official goal day. So far I have lost 6.8 pounds this week so unless I have gained 2.8 pounds today, I am fine. My plan, if my weigh in is OK, is to take Sunday off and then do the same thing next week with a new goal.

Today, I was invited to be involved with a new web service called Happify. The website is aimed at helping people improve their happiness levels through scientifically proven methods. It sounds like an interesting idea so I did some research to make sure that this wasn't just random spam, and it seems to be legit.

So I signed up.

I shall be reporting here on how it goes. I decided to concentrate on handling stress better. It is definitely not my strong point.
