Day 5

Wow, has it really been 5 days? I've been weighing myself, to keep track of how it's going. I haven't lost any weight... Is my food affecting me that much? It seems like before as long as I was moving around, I would lose weight. Now, it seems like no matter what I do, nothing is happening. I don't expect to lose it all right away, but I figured I would see something by now. Anyways, I gotta keep it going. I won't give up yet.....

Day 3

They say that sleep can affect a persons weight. By not getting enough it messes up something. Maybe I should google it and try to figure that out. All I know is I don't sleep as much as I should and it's definitely catching up with me.

Today, wasn't too bad of a day. Worked, came home, made dinner. The usual. Finally made it back to the gym, after a week of being sick and not going. Still I wasn't completely up to speed, didn't do as much as I should have. But I can work on that again tomorrow.

Today's calorie goal: 1500

Cream & Berries Danish (3/4) - 500
Coffee (20oz.) - 296

Not too bad. I'm still trying to stay as honest as I can about what I am eating. I have to hold myself accountable. Now, I just need to work on my quantities. I think that is going to play a major part in how I do. Goodnight for now, until tomorrow.

On a side note: I still haven't had a soda since July 21st, 2009... (Just thought I would add that in.

Day 2

Another day another dollar.

I have to admit I didn't try very hard today. I didn't sleep well last night, and found myself in a "I don't care" attitude today. I really have to find a way to break that habit. I'm very interested in finding an Overeaters Anonymus group to join. I know I have a food addiction. I love food. I did try to eat a better dinner tonight, and I started of with the right idea, but then added the extras and killed it. So here is the prognosis for today.

Goal for today: 1500

Cheese & Berries Danish (1/4) - 130
White chocolate caramel coffee (20oz.) - 296

Chillis, Trio Fajitas - 870
Ice Tea - 0

Hersheys Bar - 210

Skinless chicken - 120
Medium baked potatoe with butter/cheese - 283
Ice tea - 0

Mixed nuts (.05 oz.) - 174

Todays Total: 2083

Excersize: I did not make it to the gym today.

Well it looks like today didn't go so well. But I did learn how quickly the calories can add up. All the different foods that I normally thought would be ok, really aren't. Time to down size my portions I think.

Day One (again)

Well here I am, over a year since I have had my surgery, and nothing much to show for it. I was reading an article about a man who lost over 200lbs, just dieting and excersize. It actually depressed me more than anything, because here, I have had weight loss surgery and I still can't sem to get it together. Anyways. After reading his story, I decided, it's time to take it seriously again.

So, I don't know if I will even let anyone know that I am doing this again, but doing it for my own personal benefit. SO here goes...... ( I will be updating throughout the day...)
