Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 206-Pounds. That's down from yesterday....

A message for this anonymous character that keeps harassing me...
Hey Anonymous you coward; Add your real name so I can show the world what a thoughtless gutless jerk you really are... I wish I could come face to face with you... People like you need to be dealt with.... But, you don't have the courage to face off with real people.. ! You write your gutless stupid comments hoping maybe I will publish them...

For you onlookers wondering what I am writing about. I screen the comments that come in now. The main reason is because I was getting links to unsavory web pages added to the comments sections. Also, someone thought they could write in a foreign language and I would publish it. Well, I screen those comments. There is a character named Anonymous who keeps sending me nasty comments.
I won't publish those comments.

Anyway, I am make steady progress moving down.

Adding Back The Protein Powder

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Friends...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 206.2-Pounds.
That's two days in a row.

A while back I had given up drinking milk protein shakes. I was convinced that somehow I was not losing anymore weight because of the amount of milk (2 cups) I was using. Well, I started drinking them again. I am sticking to my plan to avoid eating 3-hours before bedtime, and avoid eating until I have been awake at least 3-hours. I think this has been key to my success so far.

Yeah, yeah I used to write that we should stoke the fires of our metabolism in the morning. That was until I watched a video that explained we have very low insulin levels in the morning. I was skeptical at first. Then I began skipping breakfast, and waiting until I was really hungry before eating.

Well, combine that pattern of eating with the amount of activity I have with my new job, and the results are evident.

So, I decided to add in the protein and milk now everyday. We will see how it all turns out.

Christmas Day Gains Are Gone

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up on the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 208.2-Pounds. Now that's better than the last two days.

I want you to know something. I ate on Christmas day without counting calories. I ate and ate. I did the 3-hour wait before I ate. Then I waited 3-hours before bed time.

I have been practicing that these last 3-days. Yesterday I went to the concession stand and ate a lot of high carbohydrate foods. That was a lot more than my 1,500 calorie days.  Here I am back at 208.2-Pounds. I don't feel so bad about that.

As of this posting, I haven't eaten anything. It's already past noon.

That's all for now... I'm David Dane

Hello weight losing friends...

Today I stepped up onto the new magical mystical digital scale weighing in at 205-pounds. Well that is a good thing.

I think I wrote that I am doing something different. I am waiting 3 hours or more to eat in the morning. I used to write that we should eat to fire up our metabolism. Well I watched a video bu doctor Mercola. He said we don't produce a lot of insulin in the morning. He said we should wait until we have been awake for a while to eat. Well that is what I have been doing. These are the results. I also try to stop eating 3 hours before bedtime.

I cheated last night . I had two Oreo cookies  before I hit the hay. Bad boy....

That's all for now.

That's the way it is... I'm David Dane ! Thanks for checking in.

Not Bad...
I gained it slowly, now I am losing it slowly.
Notice I weigh myself just about every passing day. I do that so I can keep an I on my progress.
I don't agree with these people who say weigh yourself once a week. I especially don't agree with the people who say throw away your scale...

hello weight losing friends...

today I stepped up on to the new magical mystical digital scale weighing in at 208.2-pounds.

I think that's pretty good considering I've been at 215 for a long time. I've been doing something different. I've been delaying my breakfast. I wait 3 hours before I eat. Then I eat something. I make sure that I don't eat before I go to bed. So far it seems to be helping. I will keep you informed.

That is 4 pounds more than yesterday. Last night I went to the concession stand at the Ice Arena where I work part time. I had eaten earlier in the day, and planned that would be may last meal. Only, I was hungry when I went to my second job. So I had more food. I really broke my own rules when I drank one of those Ice Slushies that are all food coloring and sugar. Now that's the four-pounds that I saw this morning.

Yesterday I was listening to a radio program, and a very old heart surgeon was on talking about his book about living healthy. He said things like, "We need to avoid eating egg yokes." He said, "we need to avoid red meat."  One more thing he said (This is the only thing I agree with.), "Learn to eat like you're going to eat for the rest of your life." I agree with this statement.

Zucchini Three Times Today

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 217-Pounds.

Yesterday I ate Zucchini bread three times a day. Yep, I ate Zucchini bread for breakfast lunch and dinner. I also ate one apple. So how much is really there... Well there was 3-cups of zucchini. The calorie count for that is negligible. Then there is the 4 eggs. That was 280-calories. There is the oil, about 2/3 cups. This accounts for most of the calories. I guessing at 700-900 calories. (I don't know how many teaspoons of oil in a cup.) Then the flour was 2 1/2 cups. And there was 1 1/2 cups of sugar added along with spices.

I ate a big slice in the morning and I am thinking that was 300-400 calories. I did the same in the afternoon, and when I got home last night. I think I may have hit 1,000 calories total for yesterday. I gave away half of the bread already .. So I am not getting all of the calories I could get from the bread.

Now the only reason I am eating it so fast is because this kind of bread spoils fast. Even though I put it inside of the refrigerator, it tends to turn bad quick...

That's all for now...

That's down from yesterday.

Yesterday I had two eggs scrambled, along with an English Muffin with butter and jelly on top. For dinner I ate a big bowl of bean salad. That was all I ate yesterday.

Last night I made a hulking big Zucchini Bread in a turkey pan. This morning I sliced off a big chunk, and ate if for breakfast. Then when I got home from work I ate another slice. Then I took a nap, I had been up since 2 A.M.. I weighed myself at 217.2-pounds. Then before I came out here to post this I ate another big slice of the bread. I think it was good for my first try. I kept getting these little hard chunks I would chew. It dawned on me that the seeds didn't get sliced up in the food processor.
So it added an irritating surprise to my otherwise delicious first attempt...

I was gone two days. I was unable to weigh myself because I didn't have the Magical Scale with me.
I guess I must have eaten too much. Yep, two days ago I went to Michigan. When I got up there I went to the store across the street from the hotel. I purchased a two scoop ice cream cone, and a bottle of beer. I ate the ice cream cone and drank the beer... I watched about an hour of T.V. and hit the hay for an early rise up time...

I was actually much lower yesterday and the day before. I was out on the road yesterday heading up to Michigan. I was coming home. I was hungry, and said to heck with it. I ate a 12-inch club sandwich, a big bag of Cheetos, and a Reese Peanut Butter Candy Bar. When I got home, I drank three beers and crashed...

Yesterday was literally 15 paid hours of work. It was 17 hours including going to and from work.
My days are long, and the nights are short of sleep.

Yesterday I didn't have time to pack a lunch. I bought my food out on the road. I ate more than I should, but was so hungry. It's hard to keep a steady food program when there is no time for anything.

That's just the way it is for now... I'm David Dane

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 217.4-Pounds.

That's right...

I didn't eat breakfast this morning before I left. I am so hungry right now. But, I wanted to post this, and see some other stuff on the computer. So I skipped breakfast and headed out.

Now I'll bet you all think I am just sitting around eating cupcakes, and donuts, and big spaghetti dinners. Well, I am not... Yesterday in the morning I had a fist full of peanuts, and coffee with Stevia.
Later in the day I came home and had a can of beets, and some milk. I went to a friends house late last night and had a little bit of popcorn. That was it. Now look. I am at 217 or so pounds.

I don't have any more answer for what's going on. It's baffling me... Someone posted a comment that I should exercise...   Really? What is that going to do? Oh it burns calories. Yeah, and increases the appetite. Then it become a viscous circle. Exercise is for conditioning and toning anyway.

I did plenty of exercise the day before all day long helping my brother move out of his second home that he's lost. I could be like him (he's my twin) and be so skinny that it's ugly. I think he is up to something.

I would love to get down. But, ya know what? I am not going to kill myself... so there.. !

Yesterday I ate 2 eggs for breakfast and two scoops of protein powder. Later in the day I had 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, one tablespoon of flax oil, one tablespoon of coconut oil, 1 can of mixed beans, 1 can of sugar beets. Later before I went to bed I had a few big fist fulls of honey coated peanuts. That's all I ate yesterday.

Then I drank a very large plastic cup filled with whole milk...

More Beets Tonight

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 216.8-Pounds...
Or was it 216.6-Pounds. It was another day that my scale couldn't decide.

Well yesterday I ended the day eating a can of beets, and a can of three-bean mix. It was a can with green beans, was beans, and pinto beans in a mix. That was it for the rest of the day.

Today I had two eggs, and two scoops of protein powder for breakfast. For lunch I had two roasted chicken breast, a small yogurt cup, and a pint of Ice Cream. For dinner I'll have some more beets, and the three beans salad, along with cottage cheese, and some fruit... That will be it for the rest of the day...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 216.8-Pounds.
Or, was it 216.6-Pounds... My scale couldn't decide.

Anyway, yesterday was another day I said to heck with it. Yep, I had the French Bread Left over from the day before. It was about 1/3 of the loaf. I cut it open and piled on the peanut butter and raspberry jelly. Then later in the day I ate a can of sugar beets for dinner. Then I drank down 6-bottle of raspberry beer... That's right... I DON'T CARE....

So today I went to the bathroom and had a little scare. I looked down to see a red ooze coming off the poops. (Gross... I know...) That's right I thought for a minute there I might be bleeding. Then it dawned on me. Last night I ate a can of sugar beets. That's the sugar beet juice escaping. Whew, I thought.

Which just goes to tell ya, "It matters what you eat."

In my case and in most peoples, sugar beets are excellent for us. Sugar beets have the ability to help with digestion. I am posting a link that will give everyone six reason to eat beets..
http://www.fullcircle.com/goodfoodlife/2012/05/10/6-health-benefits-of-eating-beets/

So have your Beets Today... Go "Beet Yourself Up..."

This morning I ate two eggs, and drank two scoops of protein powder. (410-calories), for lunch I had two roasted chicken breasts, some coleslaw, and a yogurt. Then when I got off work I drank some tea at 70-calories a serving x 3 (210-calories)
I am going home to eat another can of beets.

That was down, and I guess I should have been hopeful things were turning around.

I got off work yesterday, and I had some tip money in my pocket. I went to Wal-Mart purchased a 6-Pack of cider beer, and a loaf of day old French Bread. I drank all six beers. I cut a 12 inch chunk of bread from the loaf, spread peanut butter on it, then ate it down... So there....

Last night I came home from a long day driving... I was up at 5 AM.... I went to sleep for an hour when I got home...

I was groggy, and run down when I woke up. It was the evening hours. I said to myself a second day in a row "To heck with this weight losing crap." I drank a couple bottles of beer, and chowed down 3/4 of a bottle of roasted nuts.

I am tired of skimpy meals that I eat and then less than an hour later I am hungry again. I am tired of being so careful. It's getting me no where. I eat bird food, and still I am gaining weight... What the heck?

This is aggravating to say the least. I have been using Ketosis Sticks to see if I am burning Ketones.  I have been dipping them in my urine. When the come out, they are anywhere from pink to purple.
This should mean that I am burning Ketones. Well I have been consistently.

Is This A Good Thing?

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 213-Pounds.

Now this has me wondering: Is this a good thing? Am I really losing weight now? Or, will I face a day when I go to a late meal and see another 217-Pounds on the scale the next Morning? It's hard for me to tell right now, what is happening.

I have cut out many carbohydrates. With the exception of that deep dish pizza I had the last two days. With my little bits of fruit, and the half sandwiches I have tried hard to keep my carb intake at around 30-40-carbohydrates a day. This has meant avoiding anything with sugar, and bread.

Let me tell you it's not easy. The other day I was at the Race Track, and one of the women offered me half of an ICE COLD SIERRA MIST SODA.... It was hot, and I was thirsty. I turned her down. Then when I was taking the group home. The leader offered me a big cup of cheesy popcorn. I was hungry and I was so tempted... I turned it down.

This morning I ate 4 sausages (170-calories)
Two scrambled eggs (140-calories)
1/2 orange left over from yesterday (45-calories)
Coffee (0-calories)

What I will eat the rest of the day, I don't know yet. I am thinking of taking some of the left over ham, and making cream cheese rolls with it. Then eating those.
Maybe...

Or was it 213.4-Pounds? It's seems my scale couldn't make up it's mind today.

I had another small breakfast. It was a slice of pizza, cottage cheese, and 1/2 of an orange.

For lunch I was in the city. I had a very large corned beef sandwich. The bread wasn't very big.
I am guessing it was about 130-calories for both pieces, and about 120-calories for the meat.

That's it for the rest of today.

Down Again Some

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today  I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 213.4-Pounds, or was it 213.6-Pounds? My scale couldn't make up its mind this morning.

Anyway I am 4-Pounds away from that 217-Pounds I was just a few days ago. I didn't want to do it, but I gave up my night time snack of popcorn. It was unsalted, and non-buttered popcorn that I got into the habit of eating before I would go to bed. Well, obviously it was having a negative effect. So reluctantly I gave it up.

This Part Added Later In The Day...******
I am adding this part because I am not in a hurry like I was this morning.
This morning I was feeling kind of lazy. I had left over pizza from a friend who got it from a picnic over the weekend. (Which I couldn't go to because I was working.) I carefully wrapped every piece. I also got a big container of deviled eggs which I wrapped and refrigerated. I took one of the slices of pizza and cut it in half to about 3-inches across, and 5-inches long. I wrapped the other portion for another day. I put ham slices on it and some more cheese, then popped it into the toaster oven for 15-minutes. It came out toasty and sizzling. I was so tempted to heat up the other half because it was so good.

I ate the pizza (250 calories)
Two deviled eggs halves (70-calories)
1/2 cup of cottage cheese (40-calories)
1 tablespoon of flax seed oil. (90-calories)
1 slice of butter (80-calories) It's used for hunger control.
1/2 of the banana from yesterday.
Coffee with Stevia.

For lunch I ate:
Half of a Tuna Salad Sandwich (125-150-calories about.)
Two deviled egg halves (70-calories)
Water

Now, one of the things I have been doing is trying to watch the carbohydrates. I am trying to stay inside 30-carbohydrates a day... I already went past it with the pizza slice. The sandwich put me in at 25-carbs more. We'll see the effect tomorrow.

I still don't know what I will have for dinner.

That's better than yesterday; not by much.

Did you look at the videos I posted yesterday? I found those on you tube, and decided to post them. Now I myself am not a fan of eating big chunks of butter bars. But, if you listen to what is being said, there is a point that butter fat may have been unnecessarily demonized in the past.

The thought of drinking my coffee with butter in it makes me gag. I would prefer heavy cream over butter. 

Well, I don't have much to say about it all right now. I have to be on my way.

Weight Just Keeps Climbing.

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 216.4-Pounds.

That's up from yesterday with good reason. I ate late in the evening. I stopped by to visit my brother after work. He gave me this soup that was thrown together like a stew. It was very good. Then he gave me two rolls he nuked, and melted butter inside. When I went home, I had a big bowl of popcorn with no butter on it. Then I drank two very large glasses of milk. I know I didn't exceed 1,500-calories for the day.


Yesterday morning I had to make a long drive in the bus. So I ate breakfast around 9 AM. All I ate was two cups of oatmeal (300-calories). I loaded on top of the oatmeal blueberries, and some milk. I didn't eat anything until around 8 PM when I went to my brother's home. I drank water all day long.

Eight Years Ago I Began My Weight Lose Quest

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 216.6-Pounds.

Today I woke up and was thinking about what I am going to eat for breakfast. I had a big bowl of Oatmeal, with some dried fruit, blueberries, and syrup to sweeten it. The oatmeal was about 300-calories. The fruit was about 80-calories. The syrup was about 50 calories.

When I was up in Wisconsin, my aunt would make me oatmeal. She would throw some canned fruit on top, and add some milk. I would go out fishing, and realized I could go most of the day and not feel too hungry. (Now you might ask what happened to the 5HTP you were taking David? I still take it. Not so much, because it's very expensive. ) Last night I had a big bowl of Oatmeal for dinner, with blueberries. I went to bed, and didn't get hungry.

I used to eat a lot of oatmeal when I lost all that weight 8-years ago now. Can you believe it 8-years have gone by since I began my earnest attempt to lose weight?

There is one thing I did learn. Don't put dried fruit and nuts in hot oatmeal. It ruins them.

Is 160-Pounds Possible?

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 212.8-Pounds.

I am glad about that. For three days I was flying blind without that Magical Mystical Digital Scale.
I was consuming food, and had no idea what the effect was going to be.
I was careful though.

I was at my aunts and she fed me oatmeal in the morning. Then I would go out and fish all day. Then I would head off to the local Walmart and buy some food there.

I was eating two chicken tenders, two bananas, a large apple, and some kind of tea. I was down to two meals a day. I was usually done eating by 4 or so in the afternoon.

I think I did Okay just maintaining.

My Aunt Said I Need To Lose More
I was talking to my aunt Jean. She said, "David I think you would look better at 160-pounds." I then told her that was the weight I was when I left the army.
I also had a 32-inch waist line. I don't think I will ever see that again.

Okay, so if my goal is to be 160-Pounds, I have to lose another 60-Pounds... Yikes, that is a lot of weight to lose...

I don't think I have that kind of will anymore... I might make it to 200-Pounds. But, honestly.. It's so freaking hard....

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 215.4-Pounds.

It just seems my weight is creeping up. And, I am trying to figure out why. Maybe it's because I've been drinking lime juice a couple times a day, and that's just too much sugar.

I took a group of horticulturists to the Ball Seed Company. There there was a dinner in their lunch room. I was invited in. I had some potatoes, salad, and half of a roasted chicken, along with some desert. So there you see the results this morning.

Yesterday I had that high carbohydrate breakfast at the Motel. Then later in the day I had a Wendy's 1/4-Pound Cheese burger. That was it for the rest of the day.

Later in the night, I was having a very hard time falling to sleep. So I drank two large glasses of Milk.

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I weigh, "I DON'T KNOW."
That's right I am sitting in a motel in IOWA... (I could move to this place.)
I don't have the Magical Mystical Digital Scale with me today...
It's too delicate to be hauling around like I hauled the other one.

Anyway, there aren't many places to eat around here. This morning I had an all carbohydrate breakfast. Oh they were the small portions that we're forced to eat at the so called "FREE" breakfast given at the motels.

I ate two small, small sweet rolls with maybe 300 calories total there. I had a small 1/2 cup jello. I had a small yogurt with maybe 60 calories. I had 1/2 cup cereal. I ate two pieces of toast with jelly on them. I had two small cups of orange juice for maybe 80 calories.

Gee it's such a good thing that such incredibly dinky portions are served.. NOT !

I Didn't Lose Much After A Two Day Fast

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 210.6-Pounds. Or was it 210.4-Pounds? It's another day the Magical Mystical Digital Scale couldn't make up its mind.

A few days ago I went on a fast for two days. I didn't eat anything solid. I drank each day one bottle of cranberry juice at 880 calories total for each bottle. At night I had lime juice with a couple kitchen spoons of raw sugar in the water with the juice.

I was trying to clean out my system. On the second day after not eating anything for one day I had a weird bowel movement where everything came out in a mass of black. I can't imagine this was sitting in me all this time. I don't know what caused it...

It was weird. At the end of day two of fasting. I still had plenty in me that decided to leave. I only changed weight by about 3-4-Pounds after fasting for two days...

Changed The Post With The Right Numbers

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 213-Pounds.

I opened up one of my posts from a few days ago titled "What a Surprise." I had posted the weight incorrectly. I did actually wake up and weight 208.6-Pounds. There is a reason for that. I was dehydrated.
I have been nursing a cold for the last week. It was really bad a few days ago and I had to get some sleep for an early wake up. I took a little more liquid cold medication than I should have. It gave me a bad case of the "Jumping-Jibblies." I spent all night long jumping up and running to the bathroom. By the morning I was worn out, and dehydrated. So that accounted for the dramatic fall off of my weight.

Now, you can tell it's back where it's been ... Running up and down from 210-Pounds to 215-Pounds.

Yep, it never ends. That's the way it is.. I'm David Dane

What A Surprise...

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 208.6-Pounds.

Yes you read that correctly.... Well David what did you eat?

The Night before last night I had a big pot of mashed potatoes, creamed corn, with a can of tuna mixed in.
Then yesterday I had two large pancakes, with the syrup and margarine, two eggs, and four bacon strips. Shortly after that I had some buttered popcorn, and a Bosco bread stick. That was it for yesterday.

Note: the weight posted was incorrect. I was at 208.6-pounds, not 218.6-Pounds.

Whoa Dude, You Should Be 400-Pounds...!

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

After that astonishing revelation about what I ate for the last two days did you want to hear what I weighed today....? I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 400-Pounds...

Oh yeah two days of pancakes stacked high as an elephant's eyes, and a night of stuffing down mashed potatoes and corn. PHEW  that sure puts on the pounds fast there...

Well, not really... LMAO...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 211.8-Pounds.  Wait, maybe it was 211.6-Pounds... Well, the Magical Mystical Digital Scale seems to be suffering from a bout of confusion lately....

But, ain't that a surprise? I didn't gain 5-Pounds for all those Carbohydrates... ? I went back and looked at the empty box, and did some re-calculating. (I had to pull it out of the trash and wipe off the wet coffee grounds.) I might have consumed a grand total of 2000-calories with those stacks of pancakes. Here is the math. There are 20 servings in a box (1/3-cup). Each serving is 150-calories. Multiply 20 times 150-calories to make 3000-calories... NOW cut that in half... That's 1,500 calories.. Take into account that I actually used some of the box before, and that's even less.   So after doing the math, adding in the coconut oil, butter, and syrup, I might have consumed 1,600 to 2000 calories total per stack of pancakes.

Well, last night I was so hungry.... I ate a peanut butter, and jelly sandwich, along with two yogurts...

Here I am at 211.8-Pounds... Whoa what do you think about that?

That's the way it is... I'm David Dane.... Go eat some pancakes....!

All Carbohydrates Three Days In A Row

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 212.2-Pounds. Or was it 212.4-Pounds? It's another day my scale couldn't decide.

I broke all the rules these last three days. On Wednesday I wasn't hungry in the morning. I had eaten late the night before. Therefore I wasn't hungry in the morning. Finally I got hungry later in the day. I thought what can I make that is fast and easy to make. ?

I took out a box of dried mash potatoes, a small can of corn, and a can of tuna. I cooked up the mashed potatoes according to the box, tossed in the corn, and the tuna. Yeah, I would think tuna wouldn't go well with mashed potatoes and corn. But, it worked. It was yummy.

Yesterday I woke up and was very hungry. I had a box of instant pancakes that's been sitting around getting stale. I cooked up a batch of pancakes. Now three small pancakes is 300 calories. I made up about 12 pancakes of varying sizes. I cooked them using coconut oil. I ate the whole stack of pancakes in one sitting.
It was yummy, and I was stuffed. Then the rest of the day I didn't anything else. My total calories for that meal, with butter, and syrup was probably 3,000 calories.

Guess what I did this morning? I ate the same meal again.... I won't eat anything else again the rest of the day.
After all that was all the calories I need for the day.

Mind you It was all sugar and carbohydrates that I ate. This is completely against what I wrote a few months ago, when I wrote eat the proteins in the morning and save the carbohydrates for later in the day.

Yeah, yeah, yeah I know..... You guys are thinking I am such a hypocrite, and no wonder I am not losing weight.....

So what... ?

No Rest For The Weary.... !

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 214.2-Pounds.

Today I am off from work. I had to force the issue with my boss because yesterday was 9-consecutive days without a day off. If I had not forced the issue, he would have made me work today.

My company is desperate for drivers. Don't feel sorry for them, they did it to themselves. I am the only dumb-dumb that's stayed. My boss is desperate to have his schedule filled and  he willingly violates the law to do it. The remaining drivers won't contest him so he just keeps pounding them with work day-after-day. Non-stop work for those who fail to stand up for themselves. The sad thing is my boss really thinks he's doing a good thing. NOPE, he's not. He is forcing the drivers to work and risking the lives of every person who rides their buses... !

I fell Sunday on the companies property. Do you think they will investigate?  I have bruises all up and down my arm, and leg. Do you think they will investigate?  NO, they are scared of  finding out the truth. Well, someday the truth will come out, and that's the day their doors will close for good.

Well, since I am off today, I decided to fast away from solid food today. I will eat in the morning tomorrow at around 3 A.M. before reporting to work at 4:45 A.M....  I will continue to take my vitamins. I just drank a couple mugs of coffee, and water today.


This is my life... YIKES...

I had a real bad fall yesterday (Sunday) and have been suffering with a lot of physical pain as a result. My arm got bashed up, and it's all black and blue above the elbow at the contact point with a concrete stair. My left knee hit the ground and got banged up.
Not to mention I have all sorts of aches because my body twisted as I tried to catch myself on a railing.

Well, I am living with the pain.

Stress Beating Me Up...!


David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today  I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at  216.8-Pounds.

Today I was listening to a radio show about increasing stress increases cortisol levels which leads to fat around the middle. Well, my stress levels have really gone up. My Company is desperate for drivers. They can't fill the schedule they have booked... Therefore they now force drivers to violate the legal driving limits and operational time limits for the day. It has gotten to a point where I am now at war with the dispatcher because I dare tell him that I won't drive. He used to be sympathetic to the rules, but not anymore.

In the mean time the other drivers gripe behind his back about how tired and over worked they are. Well, stand up to the FASCIST and tell him no.... I do...

My time now again, is eat, sleep, and work..... This week I put in 80 hours... Yep, that is above the legal limits. I finally had to tell him NO..... My boss was PISSED OFF.....

Now, this has been going on now for a couple months. My weight I jumping up accordingly... It's because I am having such a hard time getting the proper rest, and eating the right foods.... It's HARD...

You can see the effects...

Late Meal That's Still There In The Morning

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 212.2-Pounds.

I think this may be because I ate so late last night. I think it was around 8 P.M..
I didn't eat that much. I took a medium sized potato, peeled it, cut it up into thin slices, and fried it in a pan of oil. Then I scrambled up two eggs. I at this for my evening meal. I also finished off the 2-3 cups of milk left in the refrigerator. So maybe this is just what was hanging around this morning......

Up Today...

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 212.6-Pounds.

Yesterday I went to a buffet up in Wisconsin... I went crazy eating many different meats. I had pork rib, chicken, and fish. I had some carbohydrates like a bun, and a small piece of cake.

In the morning I woke up and ate nothing for breakfast. I went out on the road driving the military to Wisconsin. By the time I got up there I was absolutely famished. I went to a buffet with some other drivers. I chowed down.... 

You may be asking what happened to your 5-HTP... Well, the last few days I haven't taken it. I am trying to figure out which one of my supplements is making my legs burn at night when I go to bed. During the day I am fine. But, when I go to sleep my legs feel like they are on fire... Maybe the government is shooting that "Radiation Microwave Gun" through my walls...

There you have it. It's just stuff waiting to leave.

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 211-Pounds....

I looked at my views for this blog post and they have dropped way down.. Perhaps it's because I missed some days posting... You folks must understand: I don't work 8 hour days, I work 14-15 hour days. That's day after day... And many days I don't have access to a computer. And, I have yet to go out and get a SMART PHONE... I think they are just too darned expensive to buy, and to maintain just so I can peek in on the internet once or twice in a day....

I don't know why. I really don't... I have been eating half sandwiches, small oranges. I had three pieces of chicken yesterday and yogurt. That was it for the day, and here I am at this weight.

Down Today, And I Am Happy About That

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 209.4-Pounds.

This morning I was hungry and in a hurry. I didn't cook myself anything. I grabbed a piece of wheat bread out of the refrigerator. It was a bit dry, and stale. I cut it in half, spread on some peanut butter then ate it. I grabbed out a yogurt cup, and ate that. Then on my way in the car I ate three small oranges. I am good. No raging hunger. I actually feel satisfied.

Last night I had to put another hole in one of my belts. I actually reduced my waist by one inch. It's because my waist line is down one inch. My pants kept falling down. Even though I am still up around 209-Pounds I am losing inches. I went to Wisconsin and I was being asked how much weight did I lose since January because I look like I have lost weight. Well, I am around the same weight, just an inch smaller.

I ended my daily meals with two very small cans of ravioli, and lasagna, for a total of 450-calories. I also had two cups of dried milk mixed in with 3 scoops of protein powder. ...  I am full, and satisfied. That's the end of my meals for the day.

I am saddened today at having heard the news about yesterdays shooting at the Fort Hood Army Base.

You Might Consider Supplements...

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 209.4-Pounds.

I didn't get home until very late last night. I think I got home around 1:00 A.M. . I drove a bunch of college students out to Moline, Illinois.

As I drove to work I was trying to think about what I was going to eat on the road. Lately I have had to force myself to eat. Oh there was that one day I had the big lunch.
I stopped at the Walmart and picked up cans of diet meals. Really? Yeah, I know I have to eat something. My appetite has been going down. Lately I look at food and say to myself: "Do I have to eat this?" Well yeah, I have to eat something.

This morning I woke up and had a twinge of hunger. I was thinking about what to eat I thought: "I don't really want to eat anything." I am eating because I must have food. But, I am not interested in eating it. I have written before that on a day off I would drink a pot of coffee. This morning I poured the cup of cold coffee from yesterday in a cup, and drank that down. I made up another cup of instant coffee, and that was it. Now, I am what I consider a heavy coffee drinker. I will sit and drink pots of coffee in a day. Well, lately that hasn't been the case.

This morning I ate 1/2 of a peanut butter sandwich, one cup of milk with a scoop of protein powder in it, and three small oranges. I am good. I don't have raging hunger...

This is about the third day that I am writing about this. Go get 5-HTP.... I am not kidding. Go get Lithium Orotate. These two substances combined have changed my appetite, and my moods.
It's going to take a while for the two substances to take effect. Believe me... You'll be amazed when one day you wake up, and you aren't obsessed with food. ...

I used to write that I get mad because I have to deny myself. Well, when I am not thinking about food, I don't have the feeling I am denying myself, or depriving myself.

Now, many times I have written about gimmicks, and pills to lose weight. In this case I am endorsing the 5-HTP because it serves as a supplement that I am not getting out of my food. If I ate all the food I needed to get every single nutrient I need to function, then I would never lose a pound.

Here is why 5-HTP works so effectively. It produces SEROTONIN in the brain. This chemical is what I like to call the GIDDY CHEMICAL. When the brain is producing SEROTONIN in large enough amounts, it suppresses the natural appetite. It's complicated, and I am not even going to try to explain it. It is working for me, and that's what counts. Just remember you'll have to get up to at least 1000-mg for it to really begin to take effect. You'll also have to be ingesting that amount long enough for the body to begin storing it and reacting to it...

The Lithium Orotate helps with my moods. When I get really hungry and I am tired, I get grouchy.
Not a mean grouchy, just a selfish I want food and sleep grouchy....
The Lithium has also had a profound effect on my thought processes.

Put together these two chemicals have been effective in suppressing my appetite and what I obsess over. 

I get my vitamins from the local health food store. I am considering purchasing from an on-line
source to reduce costs.

Weights Stable

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 210.2-Pounds.

That's down from yesterday.

I am Okay with this weight. Yesterday when I got home in the evening my weight was 209-Pounds.
I decided to eat something even though I really didn't feel like eating anything. I had a hotdog on a bun, a yogurt cup,  and the other half of my vitamins.

This morning I made some bacon and four scrambled eggs for breakfast. I looked at the meal and thought, "I don't want to eat this." Really my appetite for food is diminishing. I make myself eat.

The reason my appetite is diminishing is because of product I take from "NOW" manufacturers of vitaming supplements called 5-HTP... I can't tell you how much this stuff does to enhance my sleep, reduce my appetite, and mixed with the Lithium Orotate enhances my mood, and thinking.

I wrote a lot yesterday. I actually got a comment from Dinah Soar. She agreed with what I wrote.

Your weight lose program is your life long project. It's been mine. I can tell you it's been big loses and big regains. I have wrote about this in the past.

Maybe This will help....

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Friends...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 210.8-Pounds.

I wasn't really very hungry this morning again. I ate because I know I should eat something. I had three very small oranges, a slice of bread cut in half with peanut butter folding it into a sandwich, and a quart of water. I had some coffee. That was to give myself a natural zip. But, really my desire for coffee has been going down.

That weigh above is down from yesterday considerably. This lose came after having a large lunch yesterday. I ate a chicken breast, three strips of beef, 2 chunks of bratwurst sausage (not the whole sausage), two polish dumplings, some mashed potatoes, a big pile of fermented cabbage, a cup of mixed vegetables, one large slice of bread, and a small bread roll. Then I ate for desert two cookies, and a small square of cake.  I came home from work and didn't eat anything else the rest of the day. I took the rest of my vitamins later that evening.

Yesterday I was clicking the Next Blog Button up above. I came across a blog about a woman who had GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERY. As a result she lost 100-pounds. She admitted that she still gets hungry, and can gain weight again if she doesn't watch what she eats. YIKES....... She admitted that she can tell she is gaining weight when her clothes get tight. What?

Let me tell you what I think... It's so darned stupid to get Gastric bypass surgery. It's dangerous and unproductive.

The reasoning behind Gastric Bypass Surgery is "It forces someone to reduce the amount of food consumed." In many cases it reduces the amount of food down to about the size of a baseball, or less. But, did you know that hunger still persists after that? Yeah, I have talked to people who have had the Gastric Bypass. They say they are hungry but, they can't continue eating. But, someone who has the surgery can stretch the stomach again. Someone who has had the surgery still can feel endless hunger. Someone who has had the surgery can still "Eat the wrong foods." Read this article.. It's amazing how people fall for this stupid stuff.

http://obesitycoverage.com/weight-loss-surgeries/gastric-bypass/5-ways-to-prevent-stretching-your-stomach-after-gastric-bypass

Let me help you out here... If you want to lose weight, you'll have to accept the Idea that you will feel hunger.That said there is a way to help reduce hunger naturally.  Try using 5-HTP ... That's right this supplement is available at the health food store, or anywhere you buy supplements. If you aren't used to 5-HTP start with low doses, (100 mg). Then work up slowly to 1000-MG a day (500 in the morning, 500 in the evening.) The reason you have to work your way up is if you're like me, it makes you sick initially.

5-HTP increases Serotonin levels...

Don't try to lose weight too fast... That's right, taper down your eating... Keep a careful record of what you drink, and eat everyday. Do this for a month. Then begin figuring out just how much you eat by counting your portions. Use size comparison like a golf ball sized portion, or a baseball sized portion, to get an idea what you eat.

Gradually cut out things that cause you to get hungry.... Sugary substances like Soda Pops, and Juice Concentrates, Orange Juice from Concentrate are over kill for drinks. Sugar consumption causes hunger. I am not like the KOOKS who say sugar is a poison. I am someone who knows that a lot of sugar creates insulin resistance.

If you are hungry, eat something that is more protein.... Change your portions gradually... Don't go over board right away... Don't go "Jenny Craig" over night. Don't go "Weight Watchers" over night...

If you will learn to be deliberate. If you will learn to pay attention. (KEEP IT TO YOURSELF, NO ONE REALLY CARES. )  If you will be careful, you will lose weight.

I actually filled my freezer with TV dinners, and ate those three times a day... But, my microwave oven broke, so I don't eat TV dinners as much any more...

I am off track. Pay attention to what you eat. Don't deny yourself a chocolate bar once in a blue moon.. Don't say I can't eat that..... (Especially where someone can hear.)  You can eat it. Only you eat in smaller portions.

Moderate yourself, and learn what works for you.... Don't be impressed with GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERY. Don't be impressed with "WEIGHT WATCHERS," or any other weight loss program.

You can lose weight if you pay close attention to what you drink, and eat.

One more thing. If you struggle with DEPRESSION try getting Lithium Orotate at the health food store. I take a small pill in the morning, and one in the afternoon.  (Research the You Tube video Lithium Orotate.)
I can tell you it has change my thinking.

I hope this helps some...
