Less than 100 pounds left to lose!!!!

This week had the potential for me to hit another milestone, and I think that this one is a big one because I am ecstatic that I hit it. When I weighed in this morning the number I saw was 373.8 pounds and I was tired so it didn't click that I had hit the milestone yet, so as every Friday I get on again and it said 374.2 pounds and then the final time was the same thing, then it clicked! that weigh in means that I have lost a total of 160 pounds which means that I have less than 100 pounds left to lose, I now have 99 pounds left to go to hit my goal of 275 pounds, top of the world ma! that statement pretty much sums it up.

When I decided to lose weight and came up with a number that I felt was close to what I should be that number fell at 275 pounds, I came up with this number because I stand 6'5'' tall and have a fairly large build and my father is 6'1'' with the same large build and he weighs 265 pounds right now and does not look heavy at all so bamn! 275 was the magic number I was shooting for. I am a happy camper this morning with this weigh in, a 3 pound loss is fine by me especially when it comes with the attached bonus of hitting that milestone of less than 100 pounds left to lose, even if that bonus is only mental. This weight loss thing IS a mental game though in my opinion so its likely to carry me for a couple weeks where motivation is concerned.

This 2001 GSXR 1000 weighs in at 374 pounds.

This 1974 AC 50 weighs in at 160 pounds which what I have lost so far.

Here is a look at the menu from Thursday.


8:30 AM
2 slices whole wheat bread 140
1 T peanut butter 95
1 T jam 50

12:30 PM
1 can Progresso soup 120
10 wheat Ritz crackers 140

3:45 PM
2 slices whole wheat bread 140
1 T peanut butter 95
1 T jam 50

6:15 PM
7oz grilled chicken 370
3/4 cup white rice 150
6oz brussel sprouts 90
1 T light sour cream 20
salsa 15

7:15 PM
small vanilla cone 160

crystal light 15

Grand total of 1650 calories for the day and you see I did have a vanilla cone last night to which my wifes response was, your weighing in tomorrow and your going to eat that? yep! I sure am, because I have changed the way I eat and I am allowed to have an ice cream cone and still have a successful weight loss all at the same time. now thats not what I said to her but it is the truth but she already knows this as well. Over all I am happy about this morning weigh in and hitting that milestone, it feels good to say that I have less than 100 pounds to lose to hit my goal weight even though I do think I want to get below that 275 mark eventually it IS my goal right now. 99 bottles of beer on the wall and I am going to start chipping away for the home stretch until there are no more bottles of beer on the wall.

Thanks for following along.

As Ever
