Slipping? who me? no way man!

A few posts ago I mentioned that I readjusted how I was doing things because I felt that I was slipping (wow there were a lot of "I's" in that sentence) I seem to have renewed my eager willingness to be as strict as a Sunday school teacher that has had a bad week where my intake is concerned. I have not slipped or eaten one single thing that has not made it onto my Excel sheet since that day and this is how it will be from here on out, no exceptions. somehow it feels as if I have reached an agreement with my will again and that agreement is that I have a long way to go and as long as my will can hold out and I can stay focused, what I want I shall have and thats that.

Intake was good for Tuesday coming in at 1273 calories for the day I can honestly say that lowering my calories to 1300 per day this week vs my normal 1500 is not effecting me one bit as far as the being hungry goes. Hopefully this tactic of cycling my calories lower this week kick starts me into a good week, not that last week was a bad week at a 3 lb loss but I know in my heart of hearts that I was not being true to myself when I was "taste testing" things or grabbing that extra few bites of whatever it might have been. bottom line is that I am back to the insane eat right guy status that I had lost there for a couple of weeks. I had this feeling of being unstoppable, the invincible weight loss guy and though I have not had a week where I have gained yet (I haven't even had a week where I didn't lose yet!), I felt like I was slowly losing focus because I was getting comfy with my size again but I just needed to realize that I am going for the Gold this time Bronze just will not cut it and the end result will be me at 275 lbs, and who knows? maybe I will go even lower once I hit 275.

Here is my menu from Tuesday.



7:45 AM
1 banana 105
1 tbsp peanut butter 95

12:00 PM
21 oz watermelon 178

3:00 PM
2 multigrain muffins 200
sliced tomato 10
1 tbsp miracle whip 35

6:45 PM
6oz deli turkey 180
3 slice whole wheat bread 210
slightly more than 1 tbsp miracle whip 45
1oz smart puffs 130

9:00 PM
1 pear 85

Grand total is 1273 calories for Tuesday and were on our way to a nice loss this week. I AM determined to get to the end of this weight loss goal and I DO intend on becoming as healthy as I can so that I will be around a long long time , so thats bad news for anyone that would bet against me because I do not give up on things, especially things that are important to me.

As Ever


  1. That is the ZEUS I love!!! NO DAMNED FAILURES HERE!!!

    This attitude of being unstoppable of yours is what feeds my very low low low low level of determination! BRAVO! (I should add a few more "lows")

    When you get all huffy and write about how you are going to meet that train head on you have sooooooo much power in your words that it is something that all of your readers can benefit from. I cannot seem to ever do that on my own, but when the fire under your rump is lit then I have no problem being on board too!

    thanks :)

    I don't think anyone that has stopped by your blog would ever bet against you by the way!

  2. I definitely think that calorie cycling is a good idea. Make your body realize that you are not starving to death and it can in fact let the fat go! Hopefully your foot starts healing up and feeling good soon enough so you are able to get walking again! Keep up the great work :)

  3. HE'S back, girls!!! :D

    Hooray for taking the bull by the horns this week! :)

    Glad to hear that you've done well already this week...I look forward to your Friday morning results.
