Today is the day that..

I weigh in, but first lets talk about the intake and exercise, the intake for Thursday was a bit on the low side because I waited too long last night and it got later than I wanted to eat the remaining 200ish calories that I was allowed so I skipped them all together. calories came in at 1298 for the day and I had a very good dinner as you can see in my previous post. Exercise for the day was 20 minutes on the bike and 60 push ups so I feel good about that as well. Over all the day went well where intake and exercise are concerned.

Now to the weigh in, I did post when I hit 405 lbs because it was my half way mark and since it was a milestone I thought it worth an early weigh in post, but I wanted to keep the regular weigh in day post on par with the rest of the weigh ins so I hopped on the scale this morning to find that I indeed have lost an additional pound since the 405 showed up this week and came in at 404 pounds today, so that is a 6 pound drop from Last Friday, and with that extra pound it also means that I have lost more weight than I have remaining to lose. 130 pounds total has left my body since the beginning of the year and I honestly look at pictures even from just last Christmas and think to myself "how did I let it get so far" and the photos do not even look like me to me, so thats the weight for today.

This Honda shadow 500 weighs 404 lbs.

Maria Sharapova weighs in at 130 lbs which is what I have lost so far, and she happens to be my favorite female tennis player so I had to put her up here.

Here is the Menu from Thursday.


9:45 AM
1 multi-grain english muffin 100
2 slices light Italian bread 80
sliced tomato 15
2 wedges laughing cow 70
1 serving of Turkey pepperoni 70

1:00 PM
1 can progresso soup 120

2:30 PM
1 pear 85

6:15 PM
8oz ground turkey 320
2 slices whole wheat bread 140
Hickory BBQ sauce/onions 40
2 wedges laughing cow cheese 70
3/4 cup white rice 150
1/4 cup corn 38

Grand total of 1298 calories for the day and I am down 6 pounds this week, I feel great and have been exercising all week and I think its to blame for the good drop this time around, well that and all of the hard work that went into meal preparation along with the commitment to better living that I have made with myself, things are looking good and I will be at my goal weight of 275 before I know it. let us cross our fingers for that last part there, but I do feel confident that it will happen. Thanks for reading.
