What Do I Need To Do To Be Perfect?

November 14, 2007

In over three months of this journey from fat to fit I don’t think I have ever once had the “perfect day.”  That day you do everything right. As I was going to bed last night I was thinking about how I did yesterday, and at first I was feeling pretty good about how the […]


Two Mini-bar Strategies

November 13, 2007

The last time I wrote about That Devil the Mini-Bar I opined that the only way I was going to conquer it was to avoid getting a key in the first place.  I’m in Chicago for a couple of days at the same hotel, and will be tempted by it yet again (not to mention […]


Weekly Update - 11/11/2007

November 11, 2007

Diet starting weight: 295 Week starting weight: 272 Today’s weight: 269 Week weight loss: 3 lbs Total weight lost: 26 lbs I am certainly happy with a 3 pound loss, but it could have been so much better.  I hit 269 on Wednesday, and 268 on Thursday.  However during the day on Thursday I had a few […]


Weekly Update - 11/04/2007

November 4, 2007

Diet starting weight: 295 Week starting weight: 274 Today’s weight: 272 Week weight loss: 2 lbs Total weight lost: 23 lbs I finally managed to establish a new low after having posted a 273 three weeks ago.  Feels good to see the graph looking better again.  All in all this was a good week - I didn’t […]


That Devil the Mini-Bar

October 25, 2007

As you probably know, a mini-bar is a small, private refrigerator often found in western-style hotel rooms.  Stocked with food and beverage they offer convenience at a hefty price. The hotel I normally stay in is low-frills and does not have a mini-bar.  That’s a good thing.  Not because I am worried about the price, but […]


Odd Start to the Week

October 4, 2007

This first week of October promised to be a challenging one for me.  I arrived in Chicago Sunday night and didn’t get home until late Wednesday night.  Ordinarily I leave on Monday morning so I can still get a workout in at home, but I needed to be there Sunday night and that’s my day […]


More Signs of Dedication

September 25, 2007

I’ve never been great at sticking to things, and certainly not exercise.  But I’m seeing lots of signs that I am changing and staying with the program. Like yesterday, when I got up at 3:45am to lift weights for 45 minutes before I got on a plane to Chicago.  After a long day I ended […]


I’m Still Fat But I’m Already a New Me

September 19, 2007

I’ve been referring to my weight loss program as a journey to a new me.  I expect the journey to take two years although that is only the start - it needs to be for the rest of my life. I’m down 14 pounds in the first month and a half or so of my […]


I Don’t Cheat Like I Used To

September 17, 2007

I have yet to be “perfect” any week on my diet, although I have had good individual days.  It’s still pretty hard to string together a full week. But what I have noticed is that now how I define cheating has really changed.  Before cheating would mean eating a half a package of Double-Stuff Oreos, […]
