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.

Bye for now...

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...

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.

Bye for now....
