Post Turkey Day

Well, it is the day after Thanksgiving and that means it is time for another weigh in. Boy, I was very bad yesterday and this is inexcusable. I have never had such a healthy Thanksgiving. Wait a minute, didn't I just say I was very bad. Yes, and I will explain shortly. First, here are the numbers.

Since the previous weigh in five days ago I have gained exactly three pounds. My current weight is 351.2 pounds. My total weight loss so far now stands at a touch over six and a half (6.6) pounds.

So, what did I mean about being very bad yesterday and yet also mentioning a healthy Thanksgiving? Let me explain. With regard to Thanksgiving, the options were super healthy. Cauliflower mashed potatoes (minus the potatoes), cauliflower stuffing, and turkey were on the table. So, how was I so bad? I drank way to much soda for one thing. I had a large coke from McDonald's in the morning after dropping the kids with their mom. I had one at the movies later that night. Then, I had yet another after going home from the movies. The other way in which I was bad was with desert. Boy do I love pie! Just to share one little stat from my Lose It app...I consumed 1,300 calories worth of cherry pie. Then, to top that off, after getting home from the movies I went ahead and had a late night meal. To think, my last blog post was titled "Killing My Old Man". So much for that. Apparently he is alive and well.

I have to be more disciplined. It is pretty embarrassing to have posted about changing behavior in the last blog post and then be admitting some key failures in this blog post. That is the way life is though. It has a way of humbling you. I did this to myself of course so it is not really life doing it to me, it me doing it to myself. I am committed though. This is just one minor setback on the path to my ultimate goal and I will not be deterred by it. Like I always say, I have to just get back up, admit where I messed up, learn from it (hopefully), and keep on chipping away.

The next blog post will be on December 1st and I certainly hope to be back below 350 pounds by then. I hope that you all had a happy Thanksgiving spent with friends and family. If anyone else is on this journey of weight loss and yesterday was a touch out of control, be like Dory, just keep swimming, just keep swimming. I am sure that last sentence had way too many commas in it. Let's do this! Until next time, goodbye!

  1. I did pretty good yesterday! I ate only one lunch/dinner meal and only my sour cream pound cake/almond milk at night! Sure was hard for me too not to eat more! Just keep on trucking Sheldon!
