Eating A Bag Of Candy In One Day Hurts The Cause

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 212-pounds.


Oh boy....

This is what I get for go off the wagon.
On my birthday my aunt gave me two bags of Nestle Crunch Bars. They were the snack size bars.
Well, I had one bag sitting in the refrigerator yesterday. When I opened up the refrigerator I saw the bag. I opened it, and began dipping into it through-out the day. By night fall the bag was empty. That cost me 1,500 calories.

But, if I am ever going to see that 180-pounds again, then I must, must resist.

I Still Write Everything Down

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 209.2-pounds.

I surprised about that; considering last night I got through with work around 9 PM and then went to McDonald's for a late meal. I was starving.

The other day I was talking to a fellow worker of mine. We were discussing my boss who is a very big, fat guy. He's so big his butt hangs out of his pants.

My fellow worker doesn't really care if he loses his job, so he confronted my boss about his weight.

My boss copped a plea that he can't help himself. He said I eat all of the time because I am so hungry. He said that he wakes up late at night and goes to the kitchen to eat.

Ah poor guy.....

It sounds to me like this is a guy that never learned how to suffer a little bit. Yeah, this man is a preacher man filled with the "Holy Spirit," and he can't control himself. I say that sarcastically because the guy is a bit of a jerk. He's also a profound liar.

I told you this story because I hear this from people a lot. "Oh, I can't control myself," some say.

Hey, you better. I am no different than you. I get hungry. I like to eat the goodies. I get tempted to overeat. I do too.

What makes you think it's easy to lose weight? Self discipline is hard. It's especially hard to continue to do it when everyone else is letting go.

I still weight myself just about everyday. Today I have my scale with me at the hotel. I wanted to see where I would be with my weight today.

I still write down most everything that I eat. I have to keep a watch. And, I forget what I have eaten throughout the day. If I don't write it down then I tend to overeat.

My written record helps to remind me that I have eaten....

It's hard. It just is, but you have to cut off those pounds.

Bye for now...

Losing Again Seems Like An Impossible Task

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 209.8-pounds.

That's better than my last post.

It's been hard lately, real hard, to lose that weight. It's been hard going to work all day long, with long, long days, and avoid eating because of hunger and fatique.

I long to get back to even 200-pounds. But it just seems like such an impossible task.

Slow Weight Gain Creap

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 212-pounds.

Yes, that's for real. I have eaten too much food over the weekend, and the weight is packing on.

I have now regained half of what I lost 3 years ago. I have written that most people regain that weight after a while. Here is the thing; I've been keeping written records. I have watched it slowly come back on.

It's hard though to resist yummy food. It really is. And, it's hard to fight the hunger.

Oh well, I just have to keep at it.

Please Pass The Honey, Honey!

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 204.8-pounds.

A Tablespoon Of Honey May Be Good For Your Brain At Bedtime.

Yesterday I was in the public library. I was going between the book racks looking for something.

I came across a book about, of all things, Bee Hive Collapse Syndrome. I was paging through the book, and in the back it was listing all the benefits of consuming honey.

One of the benefits that was listed was honey may actually help prevent the death of brain cells in young children.
The book stated that brain cells die because they run out of glycogen. In small children because they grow so rapidly, they consume large amounts of glycogen in the cells.
If a child goes to bed hungry that means his or her cells are low on glycogen. Some tests have shown children in developmental stages of life can actually have slower brain development because they are losing brain cells as fast as they make them.
The book was emphatic that the human cell dies immediately as soon as it's source of glycogen is gone. Brain cells are especially vulnerable to this phenomenon.

The conclusion was that honey has the two essential sugars that are necessary for glycogen production. Tests showed that children who were given a couple of table spoons of honey before sleeping resulted in children sleeping sounder, and with less restlessness.

Their conclusion was before you tuck Mary or Johnny in for the night, serve them up two tablespoons of honey. This will help the body keep just enough sugar on hand to supply the body with essential glucose.

Years ago I wrote that at night when I was hungry I used to slurp down a Table Spoon of honey. I got away from that.

My reasoning about this is I am going back to taking honey at night before I go to bed. Who knows, with my going to bed at night hungry, I may have actually killed what few brain cells that were left.

Exercise And Diet Will Get The Results You Want

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 203.8-pounds.

That's better than the last two days. It's no where I want it to be.... My goal is still 180-pounds.

Today I was talking with a friend. This guy is an energizer bunny. He just loves to get out there and run for exercise. As we were talking he boasted that he lost a pound. Goodie......

I asked, "How did he do it?" He admitted that he exercises. But, he tossed in one more element into that weight loss mix: (And this is what I have been preaching.) "Eat Less Food." He admitted that he's had to cut back on his food consumption.

Well, well, well, well I thought; he's finally gotten it.

All along he's been telling me that I have to exercise. That will burn those extra calories.
Yeah, maybe. My experience has been that as I was running, my appetite increased accordingly.

Last year when I did some running, I was actually getting hungrier.

I am not knocking exercise. I knock the idea that exercise is the sole discipline needed to lose weight. I know the theory behind it. If someone burns more calories they will lose weight.

My contention is, and has been that someone must watch as carefully how much food is being eaten.

We all eat more than we should. By that I mean, we consume more calories than we need to live on. Short of having a really active lifestyle, we all probably should cut our calories in half.

We should eat only one or two pieces of bread a day. We should only consume about 6 ounces of some kind of meat each day. We should all eat more fruits and vegetables than we do.

When I say we should eat more vegetables, we should also monitor the calories on those as well.

I don't eat as many green vegetables as I did years ago when I first got started with this weight loss program. I used to eat a lot of green beans, and salads, along with my regular foods.

Hey, it's tough to stick to the weight loss program. We all have those days when we falter. It's normal.

I have been working diligently to get back on the wagon and stay there. Yet, last night I ate just a little bit too much Strawberry Ice Cream. I knew I shouldn't have purchased that the other day. So, I blew it..... Yah, Yah, Yah........

I am human... It wasn't me, it was temporary insanity.

That's all for now...

Three Down Days; Which Is A Good Thing

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 202.2-pounds.

Wooo Hooo.... !!!!!!!

Honestly, I wondered if I would hit that so soon because last night I was waiting for some people on the bus, and was snacking on chocolate bear cookies. I ate two of those snack size bags, and that put me over my calorie count for the day.

I told you I have a sweet tooth.

This morning I ate a big chocolate chip cookie as part of my breakfast meal; Oh David... !!!!!

Let's see what that will do for me in the morning.

Tomorrow I am going to be getting up at 2 AM in the morning. I am going to be at work by 4 AM.

Let's just see what I look like in the morning.

Bye for now...

Another Down Day; Which Is Actually A Good Day

Hello weight losing fans....

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 203.2-pounds.

Can you believe that? It wasn't 10 days ago that I was tipping the scale at 211-pounds.
Woo Hoooo ... !!!!!!!!

Question: How long will this last? Oh that seems like such a pessimistic question.
The reality has been I was down to 200 pounds a couple months ago. Then I turned around and started back up the poundage scale again. It was a very short time before I gained 10-pounds.

I tried to think what was causing this. I looked at my logs and thought, "Empty calories."
Where are the empty calories?

The answer was: I ate too much bread, one too many pieces of cake and, I was drinking beer at night after work.
I hate cutting out the beer. The issue is though, for every bottle of beer I drank, that was 145 empty calories.
Those two or three bottles of beer were impeding me from losing.
I already new this. But, I didn't want to give up the beer. And, I didn't want to give up the wine either.

If I was going to get back to where I should be, then I have to go back to sacrificing like I did in the past.

HEY......... You won't lose weight if you don't give up some of the goodies.
You won't lose weight if you aren't keenly aware of everything you drink; milk, orange juice, cool-aid, beer, or wines. Liquids contains calories, all except water, and non sweetened coffee, or teas.
You won't lose weight if you aren't keenly aware of all the food you eat.
You won't lose weight if you don't keep a count of every little calorie.

You have to figure out what you eat and drink. You cannot go absent minded throughout the day popping stuff in your mouth.

Let me tell you it's a pain in the back side. I get tired of writing stuff down, and I've been doing it for four year.

Good Habits are hard to develop, and are easy to break. Bad habits are easy to develop, and are very hard to break.

You are going to have to develop good eating habits. Then for the rest of your life you will always have to be ready for that moment in time when your flesh and will collapse.
That sounds pessimistic. But, it's the truth.

Most people who lose weight, regain it within a few short years.

This is a never ending battle.

Bye for now....

And that's the way it is...I'm David Dane.

Nobody Understands Your Plight But YOU

Hello weight losing fans....

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 204.2-pounds.

Woo Hoo..... !!!!!!!

Try To Explain Why I Do What I Do
I don't know how many people still follow my blog these days. I haven't had any comments lately. Maybe that's because I put such restrictions on the comments. That's because I was getting links to Porno-graphic web sites in the comments. I had to tighten up the restrictions.

I wrote years ago that your weight loss program is really nobodies business but yours. Now, maybe some people need a mentor to coach them to lose weight. I don't know.
For me that doesn't work. When the mentor is gone, or the coach is gone, or the device that's used to lose weight is gone, then back comes the weight.

I used to comment back and forth with someone who swore by weight watchers. He got offended when I told that it was an over priced organization. Ultimately the weight watchers program fails. Weight Watchers uses monetary rewards to incentivize people to lose weight. The biggest incentive being the weight watcher who achieves the weight loss goal no longer has to pay dues at the meetings.

I could solve that problem. I could fill a room with fatties and have them tell stories about how they tried to lose weight. That's Weight Watchers in my estimation.

Weight Watchers is far too complicated with it's points system in my estimation. People have to consult the Weight Watchers charts to get their point values for their food consumption.

I will make it easy:"Hey you're eating a donut for breakfast, and that's a lot of Calories. That better be all you eat."

With these last couple paragraphs, I never reached my point. I have a friend who is a coffee affection ado. For him, it's coffee, coffee, coffee, coffee. all the time. OK, that's good for him.

For me, I don't like paying for expensive bags of coffee. I get tired of paying nearly two dollars for a cup of coffee at the 7-11; and over two dollars for a cup of coffee at McDonald's.
The price of a cup of coffee has jumped since I used to pay just 30 cents for a cup.

But, it's not just the price of coffee that gets me. I am tired of the bitter taste. I think the only reason I drink coffee is because I experience a boost of energy from it.

The bottom line is: I am tired of drinking coffee. (At least for now.)
And, It's been a bear weening myself off of the stuff. The diet soda was tough to ween off of too.

The side effects though are: 1) I had to use the bathroom often. 2) I had the jitters. 3) I could feel the afters effects of a tired, worn out feeling because when the caffeine wore off I would drag 4) I think the caffeine stimulated my appetite.

When I told this to my friend, his response was that caffeine suppresses appetite.

Well, I don't think he really understands.

When I drank coffee, I always had to use cream, or some sort of cream substitute, and a sweetener. In my case I was using Splenda most of the time.

But, I've quit the Splenda. Sugar in my coffee is a better alternative. Yet, there's that problem: Sugar is empty calories. Sugar itself can become addictive.

I have fought my sweet-tooth for years in an effort to lose weight. That being so, I don't need to sit there and put sugar in my coffee.

As I just wrote: I am tired of coffee. I am working at drinking water. For a treat: I drink a juice, like orange juice. I limit that.

I Couldn't Sleep At All Last Night
I woke up this morning early around 2:30 AM. I layed in bed tossing and turning. My stomach was growling. I was hungry.

I realized that I wasn't going to fall back to sleep until I could get rid of the hunger. I thought about what could I eat that would be OK. I had Ice Cream in the Freezer (Evil Ice Cream!), and I thought about that. NOPE that wouldn't do.

At 3:30 I decided I was just to hungry to sleep. I got up poured a cup of cold milk and then sliced up an apple. I drank the milk, ate the apple, then went back to sleep.

I got up and saw what I weighed, and was pleasantly surprised. I thought sure that would have added to me a pound in the morning.

Sometimes, Sometimes, I just have to get something in my stomach. It hurts to wait. I can fast, but then I won't get any sleep either.

Here is my suggestion: Let's say it's late at night. If you are like me, you're rumbly-in-the tumbly. If you are like me, KNOW there is no way you're going to fall back to sleep, then try to think strategically.

Let's say you are an Ice Cream Nut. (I am one.) At night you have to have the Ice Cream. Well, did you ever think of trying yogurt instead?

Let's say you're one of those people who must have something before bed. Did you ever think of some chicken slices, or ham slices, and an apple?

Did you ever think: Since you are one of those people who must eat at night, maybe divide your dinner in two parts? That's right, save some of the dinner for later. Make use your evening meal as late night doggy bag.

These are just some ideas.

Hey, we're in the same boat. My boat has sprung another hole. I regained 30 pounds. That sucks.

I was 180-pounds for well over a year. Then, something happened. I began to regain those pounds. (I blame my cousin, I blame the government, I blame my friends. Just teasing.)

Imagine if I didn't keep written records. Which I do on most days. When I get to my cousin's up in Wisconsin then I blow it. YIKES.

Imagine if I wasn't in the habit of weighing myself every day like I do. I would blow up, and up like a not so "Beautiful Balloon." Then I would wake up again back up over 240-pounds. YIKES.....

And as my friend said, "No one would want to see me naked."

That's all for now folks...

I Am Up And Doing Better

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 205-pounds.

After having spent all day in bed on Saturday, and not eating anything more than a peanut butter sandwich for breakfast, I discovered a significant gain.... I lost some weight.

I was still achy on Sunday when I made my last post. I was still some what achy on Monday.

My appetite has returned with a vengeance. So it's back to the same old battle. I try to eat something that will be healthy and keep those calories down.

That's all for now....

Was It Food Poisoning Or Was It The Flu That Made Me Sick?

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Scale weighing in at 205.4-pounds.

Yesterday I came down sick with some sort of flu virus, or was it food poisoning? I had muscle pain, and a fever at 100.3 degrees Fahrenheit. I had a real bad headache that lasted from when I woke up in the morning until early this morning.

I went to work and I could barely sit in my seat because my back and buttocs hurt so bad. So I dragged out 6 hours of work. I then went home and went immediately to bed.

I slept from 11:30 in the morning until 4:30 PM, at which time, I took a hot bath and soaked. I was hoping to sweat out in the bath the virus. I went back to bed and slept until 7:30 PM, at which time, I got up and took another hot bath. I soaked for over half an hour.

Another one of the things I struggled with all day was continuous heartburn. I was not vomiting, but my stomach had this volcanic burning in it that kept producing burning bile that would come up my throat.

I had no appetite anymore, and felt like I didn't dare eat anything more than the peanut butter on a bun that I ate for breakfast.

The day before some of my patrons on the bus gave to me a big bag of Greek food. There was some stuff in there that I didn't recognize including a aluminum foil tray of something that looked liked vomit.

Later that night I began to experience some strange symptoms which included heart burn which wouldn't go away even with my hydrochloric acid pills. I began to feel a little bit achy.

The next day (yesterday) I woke up with a full blown headache and progressively worsening muscle pain.

I am glad I only worked part of the day because I went home to sleep. And I am glad that I am off today because I am still recuperating, and don't know if I will have a relapse.

I don't usually get sick. The last time I had symptoms like this was well over a year ago. If I get a scratchy throat I usually start gargling with salt water, and take some cough drops, then soak in a hot tub. This was different, it came on suddenly, and there wasn't anything that I could take to treat the symptoms.

Well, hopefully I am getting better. I still have some aches and a slight headache. But, I think I will be ready to go to work at 5 AM tomorrow morning.

That's all for now...

Not Where I Wanted To Be By Now, Ugh....!

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 207.8-pounds.

That's down from just a few days ago...

Needless to say this is just a little bit frustrating.
I have been working at getting back down to 180-pounds. I thought for sure I would have been there by now. Only, I like anyone, let my appetite get the best of me. It hasn't helped any to be drinking a few cans of beer everynight either. I am out of the beer for now. Well, that's until I get another customer that doesn't want to carry back into the hotel, or crate it around.
Then I will get the beer, and I will consume it. Oh, I am so evil....

That's all for now...

I'm Still Writing It Down

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 206.6-pounds.

Not so long ago a friend of mine asked me if I still list out everyday the foods that I consume, and the calorie count. I told him that I still do. He was surprised at that considering I have regained a little over 20-pounds. He thought that I had given up the vigil.

This is true for most people. I wrote years ago that this is the "Battle of the Bulge." That we must never give up our vigilance, even if we backslide some like I have.

I never gave up the idea that I would get back down to 180-pounds. I still want to get back there.
It's not easy that's all.

Weight Trimmed Because Of Being Awake All Night

Hello weight losing fans....

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 202.6-pounds.

Oh, how in the world did that happen?

I am really curious to know.

Could it be because I was awake most of the night driving to Fort McCoy Wisconsin, and then flip-flopped back to Chicago all with-in one 8 hour window? Could it be it took every stinking ounce of my energy to remain alert, and stay awake?

I do think that's the reason. Yep, driving and remaining alert takes a lot of energy because all it takes is one dumb mistake, and a bus filled with people could be rolling down an embankment, or piling into the back of some obnoxious driver in a squirt sized car with Obama stickers on it's rear deck. Believe it or not, as I approached Milwaukee Wisconsin, and Madison Wisconsin, I saw a lot of Obama hope bumper stickers still brandished on cars. And, Liberals are some some of the rudist people found on the Highway.

Is Diet Coke Causing Leg Cramps?

Hello weight losing fans....

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 203.8-pounds.

Yes, that's down one pound from yesterday.

You guys missed last week when I couldn't get to the library to post my blog. I actually got down to 200-pounds on I think Tuesday. I don't have my log sheets in front of me to see what it was. My memory doesn't go that far back anymore, so darned if I can tell when it was.

But, I can surely say I am keeping a steady weight here just over 200-pounds. Now this is way off my records of just a couple years ago. But, I am not back up there floating around at 210-pounds like I was. That was frustrating in a strange sort of way. For some dogged reason I couldn't blast the 210-pounds.

Here is what I did to break that barrier. I literally went on an all protein diet for just about a week. I ate nothing but eggs, bacon, and fish for just about a week. Then on one day I fasted without food for 24 hours. Boom that dam broke. Down came the pounds.

Now, I am sitting just over 200-pounds, and I want to break this dam. I wish I could get back to 180-pounds again.

The obstacles include family members and friends who absolutely insist I eat what they are eating. Did you ever meet people who hate to eat alone? Or, like my cousin, can't figure out why I don't want to eat the piles of food she makes for me?

My cousin will lets her wafer of a son go with little meals. In fact he'll complain if she makes him eat. This is why he's a tall, skinny kid with no structure. He's just tall (6' 3") and skinny like a green bean.

It's not easy to be around people and try to lose weight.

Like always though, I will stick by the mantra and say, "Eat less Food."

DIET COKE (SODA'S) MAY BE CAUSING YOUR LEG CRAMPS
This is a change of topic off of the weight losing posts. I think it should be carefully considered though.

I have been for months now making a strong effort to wean myself off of diet soda's I have been making a big effort to drink water. Of course I drink my usual coffees in the morning, and then the rest of the day I consume water.

Just the other day I was hungry, and I purchased a meal along with a diet coke. Not more than an hour later as I was driving home my leg calf started to go into spasms and a cramp.
I have noticed this before after I would drink a diet soda, I would have what I would call arthritic feeling joints.

My mom used to be a really big consumer of Diet Cokes, and soda's. (Well she did before she died seven months ago.) She would complain of incredible cramps in her legs that were very painful. When she was in the hospital she was having awful, painful cramps. There on the counter next to her bed sat the opened cans of diet coke.

I am suspecting that maybe the artificial sweetener in the Diet Soda's had something to do with the Muscles cramping up.

So here is and experiment you might want to try. Stop, Stop using diet soda, and drink water. This is if you have leg or joint pain. See if the cramps go away. Then one day drink up a couple of cans of diet coke. Then see if the cramps return.

Regardless of the source of my leg cramps. I am really working at stopping with the diet coke, or diet soda. I don't like how I feel after drinking the stuff.

That's all I have for now...

And that's the way it is...I'm David Dane

Confession Time

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 204.8-pounds.
Oh Argh....

How many of you are Catholic? Well, I was raised a Catholic.

I will never forget this opening statement I used to make when I would step into the confessional booth.

"Bless me father for I have sinned. It's been 2 months since my last confession. I have done these sins."

So here we go fans.
"Bless me weight losing fans. It's been one day since my last post. I have done these sins."
"This weekend, I blew it out baby."
"That's right, I pigged out."
"Just yesterday alone I ate a bag of Peanut Butter M&M Candies, and two Snickers Bars in the morning for breakfast."
"Then for lunch. I ate two Burger King Whoppers, a small French Fries, and a vanilla ice cream cone."
"Last night I had the munchies: So I opened up the freezer and found my last ice cream cookie sandwich, then I stuffed that thing in my mouth."
"And fans don't ask me what I ate on Sunday and Monday because I didn't write it down. All I know is I had beer and wine Sunday night."

Ahhh, I feel better. I confessed to my fans. Now may I have absolution? Please, so the fat gods can forgive me.

Now I will go back to eating my broccoli sprigs, and one or two eggs for breakfast.

Oh The Sin Of Eating A Big Milky Way Bar

Hello weight losing fans....

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 203.4-pounds.

OK....

I have a confession to make. Yesterday I went walking with a friend of mine downtown in Wheaton. We were going by the Dairy Queen, and I heard an Ice Cream Machine calling me.
My friend and I had vanilla ice cream cones dipped into chocolate... OH the sin !

Later I was at the store buying some paint for my fishing lures. I went by the checkout counter and saw this big fat juicey Milky Way Bar. I purchased it and ate it.... OH I am so evil !

Yeah that was so good though...

This simply amazes me. I barely ate anything yesterday. I had some ribs, three cups of milk, and a small glass of Mead (an ancient wine made with honey).

Yet there I am up at over 203-pounds. I am simply amazed at how unbelievabley stubborn the body is to let go of fat.

I'm Trying To Break Old Ground: It's So Hard To Do

Hello weight losing fans.....

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 203-pounds.

I am amazed that was my weight for today. I, like so many other people, struggle with my appetite for food at all hours of the day.

Yesterday I went with a volunteer organization to work a children's camp ground.
When I got to the reception area I was invited to eat anything that was put out onto the tables.
I having eaten only a few eggs, and some ham for breakfast, was so very tempted to dive into the mixture of sugar coated blueberry muffins, fruit bagels, and assorted juices that were there.

I almost indulged myself on those goodies. Yep, that was really a temptation.

Here was what was going through my mind, "Come on; one muffin won't hurt. You'll work it off today."

Well, unfortunately that voice was very similar to the many other voices that I have been hearing that has contributed to me giving into my impulses to eat. As a result my weight has gone back up.

That said, there's only one thing that I can do: "Eat Less Food." Yep, it's back to that crappy, nagging, mantra that I have written about so many times......! I HATE IT !!!!!!!!!!!

I HATE EATING LESS FOOD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So yesterday I resisted that temptation, and the ones that followed later in the day.

But, will I keep up my vigil? Gee, I don't know. I just never know when my cousin will offer me that slice of cake made with liquor, and topped with whipped cream and broken up Heath Chocolate Bars. If she does that; I will be toast again.

Sacrifice To Lose Those Pounds

That hasn't come without some real sacrifice...

  • No more beers at night
  • No more wine coolers

  • I have had very small breakfasts
  • I have been very careful to keep those calories down below 1,600 calories each day
Right now as I am writing this my tummy is turning inside out with hunger....

Get It In And Move It Out: Little Poopies

Hello weight losing fans....

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 204.6-pounds.

Did you read my title to this blog, "Get It In And Move It Out: Little Poopies?"
That's a play on the song where the singer was singing about herding cattle: "Get em' up, move out, little doggies."

I would link to it, but anyone in America knows what I was referencing.
And anyone who may have followed my blogs for this long, (around two years now) knows where I may be heading with this. Oh he's going to be disgusting again. Yeah....., I am.

I have been struggling with this rapid ascent to 210 pounds. Yep, I woke up one day and weighed in at that weight. Oh David..... !!!!!!!!!!!

That having been said, I have been working at watching my calories. Yes, I have been keeping them at around 2,000 calories each day. Technically, I shouldn't have been gaining weight with this calorie count. Only, I have been gaining.

I am a 51 year old man, and in six months I will be 52. As a result my aging body doesn't do everything it should. This includes being regular. Yes, I eat apples, and salad... Yeah, yeah I know about fiber..... Yeah, yeah, I know about staying hydrated with water.....

I also know that most everyone else when they reach a certain age struggles with some common issues. One of those issues is regularity when it comes to getting out those poops.

My remedy for this so far is to eat certain foods that I know will cause me to use the potty. I have been eating fists fulls of raisins, and drinking prune juice.
As a result I have been rushing to the bathroom, because when I get that urge, I don't have a lot of time.
OH THAT'S GROSS.....

Listen I have mentioned this before, and I have proven it with my own life. There can be a lot of stuff staying inside, and that can add unnecessary poundage. I don't think it's healthy.

As a result of my change, look what's been happening, my poundage has dropped down from around 210-pounds.

Does this mean I shouldn't be careful with what I am consuming? Well, no I still have to be careful.

Face it folks, if I we are over-weight; we overeat. That's right, we eat more than we need to survive. We all need a little protein, some carbohydrates, fruits, and vegetables. Only we eat more of those things that we really need.

There is one more thing that I have done. I have gone back to eating TV dinners... (OH NO, They are loaded with Sodium. That's Bad David.)
SHUTUP you goofy critics.

If you are a preponderant..... Hey if you're fat ! Then you have more to worry about than sodium.

You really need to consider you eat too much. Sorry that's a fact jack.

Now, as a result of my careful calorie counting and that poopie-issue, I have trimmed my weight a bit. It's not where I want it to be.

My Neighbor Said I Look OK.
Sometimes, I can't figure out woman. I have a neighbor who said that I look good at this current weight. She said that woman don't care if their guys have a little belly. Well, I do.

My cousin says the same thing "I look OK." This is from a woman who thinks she's fat weighing in at 114-pounds.... She is skinny. She thinks she looks fat, but I look good weighing in at 204-pounds????

I will never understand a woman.

OK.... So what's the plan man? It's an attempt to regain lost ground on my part... I've been saying this for over a year now.

I've written before, most people who lose weight regain it again. I saw this with my mom who is now dead. I've seen it with these zealous "Weight Watchers." I've seen it with my neighbor who's a work out fanatic. They lost the weight, and regained it.

Here is why; It's hard. It's hard to monitor your food consumption. It's hard to say no to that extra donut, that extra serving of Chinese food, or any other delicious food out there.

It's hard to say NO to a few extra drinks at that bar. It's hard... It just is.

Who said it's easy to lose weight.... ? You never, ever read that here.

I hate losing weight.... I hate maintaining my weight... I hate it.

Bye for now....

And that's all for now.... I'm David Dane

Which Weight Counts?

Hello weight losing fans....

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 206.2-pounds, or was it 205-pounds?
This morning I had to be at work by 3:45 AM. I weighed myself when I awoke and dragged my tired-butt to the bathroom scale. It said 206.2-pounds, and mind you it tossed in a comment, "Gee you're getting fat again."

When I returned from work, and took a long nap, I stepped up onto the scale and weighed 205-pounds. So which one counts? Golly I don't know.

I guess tomorrow I will know.

Hello Weight Losing Fans....

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 204.2-pounds.

That's certainly a lot better than where I have been with my weight lately.

I will tell you how I did this... Are you ready? You aren't going to like it but here goes:
The other day I went to the store. I was hungry and I had a taste for something sweet.
I was thinking I should eat fruit, and skip the sugary foods.
So, I purchased a big canister of raisins. I ate that canister of raisins, then spend the rest of the day running to the bathroom...

The end results; I blew out 5-6-pounds.

See I knew you wouldn't like that, but it is a true story.

Yep it was plugged plumbing... And now you know the rest of the story.

Exercise? OK.... But, You Better Cut Calories Too

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 208.4-pounds.

I have started do a few exercises in the morning when I wake up. I do some squats, sit ups, bent-over stretches, and push ups.

I have just started doing a little jogging around the block since the weather has been so nice.
I jog every other day.

Now, I don't expect that this exercise will do anything for my weight. I still have to work on the consumption of food.

Yesterday, when I woke up in the morning, I weighed in at just over 205-pounds.
And then in the afternoon I went with a friend to lunch. I had a steak sandwich and French Fries, along with some small rolls, and soup. That was all I ate for the rest of yesterday.
Then this morning I woke up weighing in three pounds more.
I even went out and jogged last night before the sun set.

Did I lose any weight? NO I didn't.

Over, and over I keep telling people that exercise is only for conditioning the body, and toning those flabby muscles. If the diet isn't taken care of and those calories reduced along with reducing down excessive carbohydrates; you can exercise until those cows come home, and you'll still be a fatty.

The Fine Print Said: Diet And Exercise To Get These Results.
I can't tell you how many times I have seen those commercials that say if you'll get this piece of equipment, or this piece of equipment you'll get this great looking body.

But if you'll pay attention to the fine print, you'll see that it's says: "These results are not typical. These results are with diet and exercise." (That of course if a paraphrase.)

Yesterday I was talking to a friend that wanted to buy the "90 day work out program." It's that program where the guy says you can shock your body with all these different muscle groups being worked each day and after 90 days you'll look like this....

Well, read the fine print folks. It's not guaranteed you'll look like that after 90 days.
The fine print says diet must be controlled to see results.

Now, do I think there is any harm working out? NO I don't. But, I told my friend that if he purchased that program and did it like it says, then four days from now he would be so sore he wouldn't be able to crawl out of bed.

People don't stop to think. They are out of shape, they have flab on their bodies, then they want to jump whole hog into an exercise routine, and then see results in 90 days.

I am so sorry, but if you're 40 pounds over weight, then don't expect to lose forty pounds in 90 days.

It just won't happen.... If it did happen then I know you'll regain that 40-pounds. LOOK AT ME, I regained almost 30-pounds of the 60-pounds I lost.

I am very disciplined in my approach, and I am having a hard time.

What makes people think they can just drop off the pounds when they never ever did anything in the past to discipline themselves over their weight?

Nope, it's not that easy to lose weight, and keep it off... I know, I am here after having been so successful. Now I have a little belly there. It shows.

It's tough..... Don't fool yourself.

Hello weight losing fans....

I made a change with my last posting..... You can go back to see it.

Today I stepped up onto the Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 210.8-pounds.

Now that 210 is not a typo.....

I have been working literally 12 to 18 hours a day at my job..... I have been eating food out on the road... My life has been get up, go to work, come home, and immediately jump into bed these last two weeks..... I h ave no life.....

It's not an exciting life being a charter bus driver like I am.... Don't fool yourself into thinking I get to see the world. I drive in heavy traffic, and when my customers aren't on the bus, I try to sleep....

I have been working hard at trying to get down this weight... I kid you not. But, you try to excercise when your dead stinking exhausted.... It's very hard.

And since I have to keep myself smelling good, and looking good out on the road, I can't just go out and walk, or run.

So there you have it... I am gaining weight. Don't cry for me. That's just the way it is.

I'm David Dane.

Second Day I Awoke With A Higher Temperature

Hello weight losing fans....

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 204.6-pounds.

Today is the second day that I have awakened in the early morning hours with a body temperature of over 98 degrees Farenheit. This is really a very encouraging outcome for me.

I really believe that if I can keep my body temperature up at a normal average, instead of the 96 degrees, and below that I have been averaging, I will burn more fat eventually.

We'll see if I am correct.

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 204.2-pounds.

That's down, and a long way from 180-pounds.

I have been taking my temperature regularly. I am convinced that part of my problem with my weight has been because I have an under active thyroid.

Well, my temperature has been showing more and more at 98.6 or above 98 more often.

This I think will eventually help me burn those extra calories.....

Now, some people think that if I'll just exercise that will do the jop. Nope, it doesn't do the job. It's exercise, and caloric intake that does the job.

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 205.4-pounds.

Join Us And Black Out Your FACEBOOK Photo

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 204.8-pounds.

That's down.

It's not where I want to be. However, I think I will be making some progress. Since I have been taking desiccated thyroid, and kelp capsules, my body temperature has been slowly rising.

Our body temperature should be on average 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Well, my body temperature has consistently been below that.

I never new my thyroid may have been under performing because of a lack of Iodine. Yes, my thyroid gland has been working, however, not like it should have been.
The thyroid gland can absorb other chemicals that cause the thyroid to under perform.
The only way to combat that is to start supplement in some form of Iodine so that the thyroid will have that available to absorb. If the thyroid can get the Iodine it should have then hopefully it will begin to perform normally.

With the addition of Iodine from kelp (Seaweed) my thyroid may very well be absorbing the iodine it needs to speed up my thyroid.

I woke up today with a body temperature just below 98 degrees. This is higher than before.

Hopefully as my body temperature begins to rise, I will start burning fat like I should.

We'll see if I am right.

Do You Know The Damage That The Health Care Reform Bill Did?
Barack Hussein Obama promised that your insurance premiums will go down. Well, nothing will be further from the truth.

The new law forces insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions. As a result the insurance company will have to charge more for your insurance premiums. You think you have benefited, but the reality is you will pay more.

The essential provisions for this bill don't kick in for another four years. Barack Obama wants to get re-elected in 2012. If the actual penalties, taxes, and costs kicked in right away, there would be a huge backlash. This would even be from the DEADBEATS who think they will get free insurance.

You will be forced by law to purchase Health Care Insurance. If you don't then your will be fined, and if you refuse the fine, you will be jailed. That's it, the government will put you in jail.
How do you like that America.

In four years when these provision finally kick in after Barack Huessein Obama is re-elected, then you will be terrorized by government officials... It's going to get bad.

Join us. If you have FACEBOOK will you black out your photograph. I have mine blacked out.

(Let me give credit where credit is due. I did not originate the idea about blacking out my photo on FACEBOOK... It was a woman by the name of Cheryl Jordan who came up with the idea, and I am following suit. The original day it began was on March 22, 2010.)

My Body Is Warming Up... Maybe I'll Burn More Calories

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 205-pounds.

OK...

Now, I would be dishonest if I didn't report the last two days I was actually at 207, and 206.6-pounds.

But I am down from that for today at least.

My Body Temperature Seems To Be Increasing
The normal temperature, or average temperature, for the human body is said to be 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

For a long time my body temperature has ranged below that temperature.

This might be part of the problem with me having issues with my weight.

I embarked on a program of consuming kelp from seaweed, and consuming desiccated bovine thyroid. Now I might not die from a thyroid condition, but I'll will get mad cows decease instead. I am kidding.

My temperature seems to be rising. We'll see if this helps me lose more weight...

My Body Temperature Seems To Be Rising

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 204.4-pounds.

That's up again.

My Body Temperature Seems To Be Rising
About a week ago I listened to a radio program called Coast-to-Coast. On the show a doctor was talking about the thyroid, and how important it is in so many bodily functions.

One of the things he talked about is the thyroid gland is a very reactive organ in that it readily absorbs iodine. But, because it is such a reactive organ, it also can absorb other chemicals in our diets that have other chemicals ending in the .........ine. For example, it can readily absorb benzine, bromine, chlorine, etc. on the list goes.

He mentioned that most Americans don't consume enough green foods that contain Iodine. As a result the other chemicals displace the iodine in the thyroid. This displacement of the critical chemical of Iodine results in the thyroid malfunctioning.

The malfunction of the thyroid that most often takes place is commonly called hypothyroidism.
Hypothyroidism is a "slowing" down of the thyroid in that it's not producing appropriate levels of hormones that help the body function properly.

Well, one of the side effects of hypothyroidism is a malfunction of the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is critical in regulating the bodies responses to metabolism.

Often an under active hypothalamus gland is found to be responsible in the body being unable to metabolise body fats.

It's very complicated, and if you want to know more about it, then I suggest you google the Internet for more information.

I Decided To Start Taking Action
I did a test that's very simple. In the morning put a thermometer under the armpit. Take the temperature in that location.

If the temperature falls into the temperature zone that mine has for the last ten days, then the odds may be good that the thyroid is hypo-active. Mine has been falling below 97 degrees consistently for the last ten days.

I believe that my low body temperature is because my thyroid is slow or poorly functioning.
I believe that is because I don't get enough Iodine in my diet.

I went to the health food store and purchased desiccated bovine thyroid, and kelp capsules.

I started taking one thyroid tablet a day. Now I am up to 2 thyroid tablets twice a day, and four kelp capsules a day. I take them in the morning, and at night before I go to bed.

My morning temperature hasn't gone up, but my waking temperature seems to have gone up. I am now measuring over 98 degrees. This is up from measuring as low as 96 degrees during the day a week ago.

I am hoping that this regiment will increase my metabolism which in turn will help me regulate me lose more weight.

I don't know if it will work. It's too early to tell for sure.

I have been cautioned by some people in the medical profession that I can seriously injure myself doing this.

Well, how about the fact that I have been in this condition for a very long time. No doctor that I have ever seen has ever suggested that I have my thyroid checked.

The medical establishment is not trained to look carefully at the thyroid gland. They rely on a test that they use to diagnose the conditions of the thyroid.

The easiest test is to take your temperature. If you were like me, chubby, and your body temperature was way low, then you probably have a poor thyroid gland.

You may be able to increase your thyroid just by using Iodine liquid, or using kelp that's inexpensive, and can be purchased at the health food store.

My Body Temperature Has Dropped Again

Hello weight losing fans.

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 303.8-pounds.

Oh boy...

I have been working on improving my thyroid activity by taking descecated beef thyroid tablets, and kelp capsules. I thought I would see some improvement.

This morning I woke up and my body temperature had actually dropped another degree lower to 95.5 degrees F. I have been hoping to increase my metabolism, and therefore as a result my body temperature would go up too.

We'll see what it looks like tomorrow.

A Crazy Thought For The Day


Is Your Thyroid Causing You To Gain Weight?

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 203.4-pounds.

Do You Have A Hypothyroid?
Early this morning, I awoke at around 1 AM. It wasn't time I wanted to wake up at. Only, once I awoke, I had a hard time falling asleep.

I decided to turn on the radio and listen to a radio show called Coast-to-Coast. On the show he had a doctor talking about how so many people have a problem with their thyroids, and don't know it.

I won't get into all of the particulars of the show, because to be honest I don't remember everything that was being said.

I did decide to investigate further what was being said on the show.

One of the things I did was do a simple test to see if I have a low thyroid. I took a thermometer and put it under my armpit. If the thyroid is normal then my body temperature should have ranged in at 97.5 degrees F to 98.6 degrees F. My thermometer showed 96.2 degrees F.

Now this testing is supposed to go on every morning for at least five days.
I didn't have to test anymore to convince myself that I had a low body temperature. I also figured that I have a hypothyroid because I have all the symptoms.

Now I decided to try and treat my own hypothyroidism. I went the health food store, and purchased some decicated bovine thyroid, and a bottle of Kelp tablets.

I will see what progress I make as result of using those two items. I am sure that I have had hypothyrodism for a long while. This in my opinion explains why my weight lose had stopped at 180-pounds. With very little increase in food, I easily regained another 20-pounds.

If you want to learn more you can research the internet. I am posting a link to a web page that I was reading because this page directly addresses the issues of weight gain because of a poor thyroid gland.

How Iodine Accelerates Weight Loss: http://www.naturalnews.com/008902.html

I am curious to know if anyone reads this and is willing to research for themselves about hypothyroidism.

Just think the cure may be as easy as taking a supplement like Kelp Tablets.

I've Lost Weight, But Where Did That Fat Go To?

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 201-pounds...

Where Does The Fat Go?

Here is a question: Let's say you are on a diet, and you lost 60-pounds, like me;
where did that fat go?

Think about it for a few minutes. Does the fat evaporate into the air?

Does the fat just vaporize into a gas?

This may be a very unsavory topic for sure. However, it's the reality in learning about what happens to the human body. Surely not every topic is easy to deal with.

Well, the fat that is burned off, (as in 60-pounds) goes into the toilet. (Unless you aren't potty trained.)

That's right; I've talked about this before. Fat splits up into chemicals that make up it's components. Since the body is now using that fat, it's discarding all the component chemicals that become our waste by-products.

So if you are being successful in your weight losing program, turn around and see there in the toilet bowl is that part of your body that's been hanging on for so long.

Yep, your urine, and that stool have your components of fat that have been on your body for so long.

That's where your fat goes when you finally start to lose weight.

Adrenaline, And Stress Wiped Out That Weight

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 200.4-pounds.

It's been hard this last week or so...

These are the times that try a man's or woman's heart. I don't know why things happen like they do.
Only, the stress, and emotional anquish of losing someone that's loved, really takes it's toll.

I can honestly say that my weight sitting here at just above 200 is only because my mind, and body has gone into adrenaline overflow mode. It's caused me to have sleepless nights, and chest pain. It's cause me to lose my appetite some in the morning hours. I have had to eat in the morning just because I knew that I should.

Well, what's going to happen with my weight loss program? What are my goals?

Answer: I have no goals for weight loss right now. I do have a vision of my weight getting back to 180-pounds. Only, that's where I am going to stabilize it. I am going to make sure that I can keep it at that level before I attempt to get back down further.

I never expected my mom to die so suddenly like she did. I will say I know she's with Jesus, and I will see her again by GOD'S grace and mercy.

Bye for now....

Will We Eventually Be Controlled By Environmental Fascists?

I Denounce You Michelle Obama, And Your Weight Control Agenda


Hello weight losing fans...
Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 200.8-pounds.

Well, that's what stress will do for you. It's been hard for me the last week with the sleepless nights, and the feelings of sadness.

I have eaten more food per day than my caloric allotment. However, because of personal distress my body consumed more energy. So here I am back at 200.8-pounds with little effort.

Since there's nothing I can do about my mother dieing and you can't either, it's back to my messages on the blog.

Michelle Obama SCREW YOU And Your Fascist Agenda To Stop Obesity In Children
During the 2010 State of the Union Address, President Barack Huessein Obama designated Michelle Obama at the New National Chairperson for controlling Obesity in Children....
In other words she's another one of his unelected czars of whom no one knows her salary, or her benefits package.

I will tell you up front why he did this: It's called follow the money. Obama is a greedy jerk who wants money and power. In giving Michelle Obama this Chairmanship she now has the ability to collect a salary and all the benefits that would be given to a government employee...

Not only did he give her a salary, but he gave to her an immense amount of power to manipulate and control the gullible, stupid masses of people who would follow her.

See this Article written by David Horowitz's
Along with Michelle's unknown salary, goes all the benefits, perks, and authority she will need to travel across the country and around the world to announce her agenda to fight obesity in children. She will be given staff members, all of whom will draw salaries and benefits, as they serve the Queen Michelle Obama...
Meanwhile the taxpayers will take it in the shorts as another government control program gets underway... Forget terrorism; Childhood Obesity is far more dangerous, and demands the immediate attention of Michelle Obama, and the government control freaks.
It's not enough that we have had a surgeon general for years in the President's Cabinet that could have been given the designation. No the power had to be given to Michelle, a woman who doesn't know the first thing about helping children lose weight.
Of course like all power grabbing elitists, Michelle had to declare that Childhood Obesity is an epidemic, even though it's not. And because she now has the authority to set the rules, all we Americans will have to bow down to her agenda.
Well, I say F...... K YOU Michelle Obama, and that husband of yours Barack Hussein Obama.
I like Rush Limbaugh hope that all your initiatives fail miserably.
I don't want to see fat children, but it's not the federal government's job to control children.
You have no business telling anyone how to raise their children when it comes to the choices of food they will eat.....
And I darn sure don't want you Michelle telling me anything.... Go to hell Michelle. Go back to the Loins of Satan where you were spawned from; YOU WITCH !
That's what I think....
Bye for now...
