Two Trips To The Ice Cream Machine

Hello weight losing friends...

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

Yesterday it was less... Yesterday I worked fifteen hours. I had a big lunch, and went to a buffet restaurant in the late afternoon...
I went back to the Ice Cream machine twice. Oh boy...

So there it is....

Bye for now...

Hello weight losing fans...

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

Yes, again these are real numbers. No one's messing with my posts, like was done a while back.

Anyway, what's up? Why do I have what seems to be such an incredible set back?

Because I am just like you.... I like sweets and goodies too...

Only in my case my issue is that when I am so hungry (which is almost all of the time) I have made bad choices.

Bye for now...

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 204-pounds.

Yes that's a for real number. My weight jumped 7-pounds.

You might ask, "How is that possible?"

It's easy, last night I went to dinner with my friend. I had 3/4 of a large pizza.

At home I drank 3 beers, and three shots of carmel flavored ligueur.

So there you have it, too many calories, late in the evening, showed up on the scale in the morning.

OOPS..

Am I worried, NO!?

Do I worry what you think, Double NO!?

Why am I telling you? Well because maybe your one of those neurotics that feels guilty when you gain a pound. Those kind of people beat the crap out of themselves when they violate their weight goals...

I know someone like that who feels so quilty and shameful when he hasn't run.... His writing displays that guilt...

OH big deal. Oh, I gained some weight, feel guilty, feel shame, feel discust with myself.

I am still trying to read this weight loss book. I am throwing up reading it. It's all based on emotions. There seems to be a few redeeming things in it.

But, you know what? You won't lose weight if you don't stop stuffing your face. That's it period.

Bye for now...

Still Trying To Read This Book; I Hate It

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 198.8-pounds.

I am still working my way through a book that I borrowed from the library.
Honestly, I can barely stomach the contents.

I hate reading about other peoples reasons for gaining weight...

Even the author admitted the reason he gained so much weight was because he ate to much of the wrong things. Well, dah.......

This is what I have been writing now for over two years. We ate too much food, and we got fat.
I got fat because I ate more food than I needed to produce the energy I needed to survive.
The same reasoning is true for you.

That donut, the cheese parfait, the steak sandwich, the French Fries, don't care why you're eating them...

Your body, doesn't care why your eating so much either. It goes along dutifully charging to your fat account all the extra calories, and fat that you consume that exceeds your daily needs.

It doesn't matter what the reasons are... If you overeat, then you'll get fat... TA DA !!!!

How hard is that to understand?

Bye for now...

I Over Eat Because I Am Hungry

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 199.2-pounds.

Today I went to the library at church and borrowed a book about losing weight the sensible way.

In the book the author attempted to give reasons people eat like they do, which results in obecity. Well, I have only been able to start reading the book. I am not sure I'll finish it.

It's simply because the author is using case study about people to show that the reason people over eat is because it's all emotional....

Well for myself, I really wish that was true. The reason I over ate, and still struggle not to, is becuase I am down right stinking hungry.

Right now, I am writing this, and my stomach is growling. I want to eat.

That's all for now...

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

Hello weight losing fans...

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

EEK!

When I woke up this morning, I thought for sure that I would be down below that.

I promise, I have been staying away from the sweets, and keeping my calories down.

Yet, this is my results.

OK, I just have to be more patient.

Down Under 200 Pounds Again?

Hello weight losing fans....

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 199.6-pounds.

For those of you (all one of you) who have followed my pithy little blog, you will see that I have really, really been struggling with getting back to 180-pounds.

Oh my this is so tough. The hunger that I am battling now is unbelievable. Why? It's because I have been fighting so hard to hold myself at that 1,500 calorie a day limit.

OUCH....! THIS SUCKS.... !

I remember years ago, I seemed to have so much resolve to get off the pounds. Only, with the help of certain family members and my careless abandon of my own set habits, I began to regain 20-pounds.

I went to 190-pounds, and held that. Then suddenly with the onset of the Christmas Season, and visiting places that had plenty of temptations, I lost my resolve.

Here I am sitting back up around 200-pounds.

I have had to give up most of the sugary substances. I have had to quit eating the candy; again.

My cravings for certain sweets are going crazy.

Don't think for five seconds that losing weight is easy to do. I think I am the only person who will tell you that.

Bye for now....

I Struggle With Hunger... What About You?

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 197-pounds.

This is really a challenge...

It's so hard to reverse course when I have gone so far into that wrong direction.

I was reading someone Else's comment on another blog written about me.
I don't think it's understood at all what I have written in the past. I never wrote that losing weight was easy. I never pretended that my will power is any greater than anyone Else's.

I have a question: so what if I regained almost 20-pounds over the last year? Who does that have any effect on but me?

When I started writing this blog over two years ago, it was because I had a pesky friend that kept after me about writing a blog. He was doing it, and he thought I should do it too.
He's the reason I have a FACEBOOK PAGE... And if he didn't sign me up for that, I never would have joined. I am actually very tired of the FACEBOOK... If there wasn't some girl I liked on there so much, I would close the FACEBOOK... But, I look forward to getting a little quip from her here and there......

I don't love being on the computer... To be honest, I don't care if anyone recognizes me either.
I don't crave the attention.

Well, why am I writing this then.... ??????

I am writing this for that one person out there that might benefit from my experience.

If you are overweight like I was, and still am.... I got down to 180-pounds. Now, I am what's up above.....

Food is my downfall.... I am like you, I like to eat. And, I struggle with hunger almost all of the time. I don't care what I eat... I don't care if it's that special Atkins's Diet, the seafood diet, the grapefruit diet... I don't care what it's called, I don't care if I stuffed myself at dinner; because one hour later I am hungry again.....!
Short of using some sort of appetite suppressor, I will always have to wrestle with hunger.

I lost most of my weight being hungry all of the time. That's that Jack.

I resent the smart butts who think I have a weak will. Here is what I think: "Go F..... Yourself."

Oh that's not so nice.

Well, you think you know so much. Leave me alone. You aren't me, and I am not you...

By for now...

The Holidays Took Their Tolls On Me

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 198.2-pounds.

Ooooooooh My.

Didn't I say that I put my head down and was going back for that 180-pounds? I think I did.

Last year I boasted that I was just barely over 180 pounds after the holiday season.

Well, here is what happened. I didn't write down what I was eating, and I didn't weigh myself everyday.
NO monitoring, no self accountability, and look what happened as a result.

By for now...

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