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 [...]


What I Have Been Waiting For

January 10, 2008

I’ve not had much success over the last six weeks or so.  But I’m not letting that get that down.  Still, times have been a little tough.  I’ve been in need of a pick-me-up.  Yesterday I got into our Chicago office at 8:30 and talked to one of my managers for a while in his office.  [...]


Analyzing The Weekend

January 8, 2008

As I wrote in my update yesterday I didn’t have a good weekend diet-wise and that contributed to a gain for the week.  Now is the time to go back and analyze what happened so that I can do better next time.  I really don’t know where this post is going to go since I have [...]


New Year, New Challenges

January 4, 2008

Damn but this weight loss thing can be hard sometimes.  I’m doing well this week on the eating (although not on the exercise) and I actually weighed in this morning at 264, which is a new low for me since I started back in August.  OK technically it was 264.8 but I always truncate so [...]


Welcome 2008

January 2, 2008

Well I officially weighed in on the first day of 2008 at 267 and a waist of 50″.  Looking at my pictures it looks like I actually gained weight in my belly, although that could be deceiving because it looks like I may be standing straighter.  And of course I could have lost weight in other [...]


Catching Up on Christmas

December 28, 2007

The week went by too fast - which always seems to happen when I am on vacation.  So time to get caught up on a few things around here.  First of all you may remember that I was worried about this week from a diet standpoint - we hosted a big feast on Sunday, and [...]


4 Reasons You Should Be Writing a Weight Loss Blog

December 19, 2007

Whether you are looking to lose that “Freshman Fifteen” or are in the 100+ Pounds-to-Go Club you should be writing a weight loss blog as a critical component of your weight loss plan. A weight loss blog is not a food journal or a food diary. Keeping a food journal can also be important and [...]


A Tough Start To The Week

December 12, 2007

I’m really going to have to kick it in gear now that I am back from Chicago.  The last few days have not been terrible, but they haven’t been great either - something I have been saying too much lately. It started on Sunday when my son and I went to McDonald’s for breakfast prior [...]


Jennifer Love Hewitt - Maybe Not So Inspiring After All?

December 11, 2007

So I was planning on keeping mum on here about Jennifer Love Hewitt.  I really was. For those of you living in a cave who haven’t yet heard about this, Jennifer has been fighting back against some (in some people’s opinion, not mine) unflattering photos taken of her while on vacation. Here is what she [...]
