Paring Down at Noodles & Company

September 11, 2007

Noodles & Company is another restaurant that sees a lot of my money.  Not only do I eat there occasionally when I am at work but it also happens to be one of the few places that both of my kids agree on, and since it’s fast, but not fast food, we end up going [...]


A Good Read

September 10, 2007

On Saturday’s “On Writing a Weight Loss Blog” I suggested that the blogs I am most interested in reading are the ones where the blogger opens up about their feelings and describes various thought processes as they have success or are dealing with issues.  Groovybabe is one such blogger. Yesterday she wrote a great post detailing her recent struggle.  [...]


A First - Uneaten Pizza!

September 7, 2007

Uneaten pizza.  This is not a phrase I have uttered much in my life except for maybe in the context of the morning after a big party - “Hey look, uneaten pizza.  Breakfast!”  But “uneaten pizza” was indeed uttered by me last night and it was because I was putting two complete uneaten pizzas away [...]


More Good Calacanis Diet Advise

August 13, 2007

I’m pointing to another relevant Jason Calacanis posting, diet tips for business travellers, because business travel is one of my killer weaknesses and Jason has posted some good thoughts on the subject.  I suspect Jason travels far more than I do (I average a couple of trips a month) so I value his opinion and suggestions. [...]


Gastric Bypass Diet with No Surgery?

August 8, 2007

As I have mentioned before, I don’t think Gastric Bypass surgery is for me.  I don’t want to go under the knife for this, particularly if I think there is a good chance I would fall back into my bad habits, which I think there is.  I think I need the mental victory that will hopefully [...]


Movie Theatre Popcorn

August 5, 2007

I Saw the Bourne Ultimatum yesterday (great movie!) and I thought I was very good at my choice of snacks.  For a drink I had a Liter bottle of Dasani water (I think I paid $4.50 for it in the theatre, ugh!), and a Medium (not a Large!) popcorn with NO BUTTER.  Usually this would be [...]


Gastric Bypass

August 4, 2007

I happened to be on the periphery of a conversation last night between a couple of people sharing their Gastric Bypass success stories.  One of the guys I had seen before when he was big, over 400 pounds.  I didn’t recognize the other, who had said he had lost 115 pounds.  He was probably middle [...]

Off to a good start

August 3, 2007

So yesterday went pretty well, but it’s always easier for me to eat well when I am at home - fast food and business travel are two of my biggest challenges.  I grazed a little bit at night after dinner but didn’t gorge on anything and pretty much kept in line.  I have to stop [...]
