Onward and Upward…

OK, my weight this morning is back up, but I'm still 1.8 pounds down from my start, plus I'm losing weight at my planned rate. What was my undoing yesterday? Not sure, but I did have a beer late in the day. Beer is nice, but is just empty calories. Many believe that wine, however, has [...]

Making Progress

Finally, I'm making progress! I'm down 2.8 pounds. This marks the third day in a row that I've lost weight. I really haven't been working very hard at it, which means that I could still be eating healthier. Breakfast was my normal Kashi Go Lean, this time with Chilean blueberries. They still aren't very ripe (too [...]

Paying the Piper…

No, I'm not paying my friend Mike Piper, I'm paying the guy that collects dues when you've screwed up. I went to St, Rocke in Hermosa last night with Becky to see Richie Furay (ex of Buffalo Springfield and Poco). Old folks' party. Great show, but I had a burger and fries along with five pints [...]

Talk About "Falling Off the Wagon"

The news was bad this morning. I feared as much. I now weigh the same as I did four days ago when I started this journey! My weight loss trend line is going up, NOT down. Here's what I did that neither of us should be doing: I had a huge serving of Chinese takeout food [...]

It's Not Always Pretty

I gained back some of the weight I lost two days ago. It's a disappointment, but not a time for depression, binge eating, tears, etc. (not that I'm inclined to these). These minor setbacks are normal, perhaps unavoidable. There's not always an obvious cause. It is, however, a good time to reflect upon your (my) behavior [...]

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.

I had to look it up. I knew the quote, but didn't know who said it. Appears to be from Lao Tzu. Here's my first step: day 1 was uneventful. I haven't started working out yet. I want to lose a bit more weight before I start there. I ate reasonably well, but not very well. [...]
