Weigh in eve and the chalenge is set.

Weigh in time has come around again, its funny how that happens every week, Last week I dropped 7.2 pounds which brought me to 362.6 pounds and I wanted very much to get into the 350's this week and that is still my goal. To be in the 350's I think will be surreal to me because I cannot remember a time in my life that I was actually "in the 350's" and yet that has been the weight that I have used on my license for years, it has been what I say to people when they asked if they asked, "so waddya think ya weigh?" to my "about 350" which I always knew was not even close to correct and now if can hit that weight I say it and be right on the money!

My intake was below my allowed 1700 yesterday coming in at 1665 total calories and I did get in a gallon of the good stuff AKA Green tea. I am also craving bananas, which is not a big thing normally but wify bought a bunch of bananas about 2 weeks ago and they were really green, nothing odd about that right? wrong! they are still green! some slight yellow is showing up on a couple of them but they are still not ripe, I think they are magical non aging, non ripening bananas or something, its driving me nuts because I am stubborn and won't throw them out, and before you say 'well are you sure they are bananas ant not plantains or the likes" I am sure they are bananas! one got yellow and I ate it a few days ago but the rest are still green (why did only one get yellow!?) and I am at a loss as to why so on the fridge they sit (now in a brown paper bag) and when they ripen I will enjoy them if only to prove to the banana gods that I won. Ok ok enough about the bananas, 25 minutes on the stationary bike along with some push ups and a stretching routine was how part of my afternoon was spent yesterday and will be in my plans for today as well. Will I make it into the 350's? I sure hope I do but if I don't it just means that its one more week before joining that clubhouse, but I will get there. Have a look at yesterdays menu.

Grand total of 1665 calories for the day, and a challenge is set for tomorrows weigh in, I mentioned it in yesterdays post and here is how I shall work it. for every pound that I lose I will ride 5 minutes on my stationary bike and in addition to that, for every comment that I get before midnight Friday on tomorrows weigh in post I will do an extra minute on the bike. That means that the length of my Saturday cardio session will be dictated by anyone that leaves a comment! 10 comments, 10 extra minutes! 40 comments (gasp) 40 extra minutes! (I see 40 people following this blog now which I think is awesome so I used that for my gasp number) bring it on! make this big ol hunk of a dude sweat his arse off! the only catch is that I ask that for every comment that I get that the poster drink a glass of water, sound fair? heres to a good weigh in, wish me luck!

Thank you for following along and if you regularly read my blog you know that its time to grab yourself a nice big drink of H2O, and if you are new, get on up and grab a glass of water you deserve it for making it to the end of my post.

As Ever


  1. Good luck! I'm really impressed with how great you are with your nutrition (i.e. fruits & veggies). That has been the hardest part for me ALWAYS! Hope the scale gives you a great # tomorrow!

  2. Good luck hitting the 350's tomorrow!
    By the way, have you tried to place tomatoes or apples next to the unripe bananas?
    Such fruits produce a lot of ethylene which is a "maturation gas" which might help ripen the bananas.

    I've had my water, now sweat! :D LOL!

  3. Good luck tomorrow on your weigh in and you'll do super as always -
    I have no doubt.

    Keep warm!- Patty
