Weekly Update - 1/27/2008

January 27, 2008

Diet starting weight: 295 Week starting weight: 263 Today’s weight: 263 Week weight loss: 0 lbs Total weight lost: 32 lbs My slow and steady mantra is only interesting if I actually lose weight.  It’s really a bummer to not see a loss on the scale this week.  Frankly, it’s getting old.  Maybe I’m not past this [...]


What Do You Think About Google Health?

January 25, 2008

According to VentureBeat, Google Health could be launching soon.  Check out this Google login page to get a taste of what Google Health could be about. I’m not sure yet how I feel about this.  Well, that’s not true - I feel uncertainty as to whether it is a good thing or not.  Google is [...]


How I Am Using Slim-Fast Optima as Part of my Diet Plan

January 24, 2008

I have decided to introduce Slim-Fast into my diet plan. I’m not going on the Slim-Fast diet, I’m just using the shake powder to augment the good habits I’m already building. I used Slim-Fast many years ago in a similar way and saw good results.   Here is how I am using it: As a Meal [...]


Legends of Weight Loss

January 22, 2008

Someone commented on here recently that I was a legend and an inspiration.  OK, I’ll accept that when I do things like run two miles I might be an inspiration to some, but a legend doesn’t eat cookies like I’ve been eating cookies.  A legend doesn’t polish off the damn Williams Sonoma peppermint bark like I [...]

January 20, 2008

Diet starting weight: 295 Week starting weight: 264 Today’s weight: 263 Week weight loss: 1 lbs Total weight lost: 32 lbs OK so I was a wee too optimistic last Sunday when I wrote I thought I could get to 259 this week.  I didn’t see less than 263 on the scale all week.  I lost a [...]


Running Milestone Achieved

January 19, 2008

One of my 43 Things Goals is Run 1 Mile Without Stopping.  I’ve also got 2, 3 and 5 miles.  But you’ve got to start somewhere, so 1 little mile is the first goal. I’m in week 4 of the Couch to 5K program (see my cardio page for more info) which means the most [...]


Use the Chipotle Calorie Calculator For a Dose of Reality

January 18, 2008

I’ve mentioned numerous times before how a part of my current diet strategy is taking my old standard meals that I am used to eating and optimizing them to find the perfect portion sizes that still satisfy me.  See Even More Paring Down at Noodles & Company as an example. Another restaurant where I eat [...]


Rethinking the V8

January 15, 2008

Yesterday I asked a bit of a rhetorical question when I asked about if it was OK to drink v8 calories as opposed to eating food calories.  I was pretty sure I knew the answer - because V8 gives you a couple of servings of vegetables and is still fairly low calorie, it is good for [...]
