I Plead The Fifth!

Just kidding.  I tried to make a joke given that today is the fifth of November.  That means today is official weigh in day!  So today my weight was kind of borderline so I weighed three times.  Two times I weighed 344 and once the scale read 345.  Lousy scale!  We will go with the 344 given that it happened twice.

I have been doing better with not eating out.  Last time I reported that I was struggling with it but things are better now.  I went out and bought a lot of groceries so I should be set for a while.  It is typically when I run out that I feel the most pressure to grab something quick like fast food.

So something else came up this last week that I thought was kind of interesting.  Remember how I said in one of my previous posts that I was not even tempted by soda anymore?  Well, I have been wanting to see the new Disney movie Wreck-It Ralph and as I was contemplating when I might be able to go and how much it would cost I automatically factored in the cost of a soda.  I know they are outrageously expensive at the theater but the thought of seeing a movie without a soda was a bit of a downer.  I don't know why, but whenever I go to see a movie at a theater I always like to have a soda. Interesting how two separate things can be linked like that in one's mind.

I am also going to try something different at the urging of one of my friends.  This friend suggests that I not use Splenda in the ice tea.  So I have decided to try a low calorie alternative in the form of C&H All Natural Sugar and Stevia mix.  It does have calories but at least it is all natural right?  I guess I will find out how it works soon.  I just used all of my Splenda and so I will let you know in a future blog post how this other option works out.

So overall I am now down six pounds.  145 more pounds to go to be below two hundred.  The next weigh in will be on November 10th.  If I do not post anything sooner, I will post then.  Take care everyone!


  1. I haven't seen the cal count on that sweetener. Keep a rough estimate in your head when you drink it to stay within your cal budget. I hope that sweetener works well for you. Hopefully it will not cause you headaches or flames as it does me. Are you allowed to pack in your own food and drinks at your theater...some allow some don't.

    1. Food would not be allowed but I believe that you can carry in water. Most places here in Arizona let you take water in with you. Probably due to the heat. I have also accidentally carried in candy in my pockets.

    2. Thanks for following along Jewels. It is good for me to look back at these old posts.
