Down Some, Which Is Good

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 210.8-Pounds..
Wow, I am surprised.
Yesterday I didn't eat that much to begin with. I only had half of a large raisin muffin, and five large bread sticks filled with cheese centers...

Oh Darn, No One Can Be Around 24-Hours A Day To Help

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 214-Pounds.

Again today...

So anyway, I have this new friend. And, she likes me. As a result her mothering instincts kick in and she thinks she has to chastise me... I think it's so cute... It gets old sometimes, but she means well.

So anyway, She read my blog some one day. And she decided she was going to help keep me on track to lose weight. I told her you can't be around me 24 hours a day.
Nobody can be around me 24 hours a day. No one can be around you 24 hours a day.

It works like this: You discipline yourself, because no one else can.
And believe me, it's going to be an uphill battle. Here is why. Yesterday my lady friend couldn't finish this really sweet ice slushy. So what did she do? She handed that sugar filled drink to me.
Of course, I happily consumed it. She had quickly forgotten the promise she had made the day before.

Most people will forget their promise to help you. That is unless you're willing to pay them something to be your drill sergeant. The reality is, no one can lose that weight for you....

Don't you hate that?

Losing Someone Can Bring Pain And A Loss Of Desire

 David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 214-Pounds.
Hmmmm, what did that? My total calories yesterday was only 1,600 or so.

Anyway, it is what it is.

Yesterday a comment came through from Dinah. I decided to copy it and post it up front for all to see.
Hey, you may be struggling with the loss of a loved one. My-oh-my it hurts.
The reality is, you really never do get over that loss. I haven't. I just had to move on with my life and do the things I had to.

"My mom died in 2012 and I totally understand how it affects a person. It doesn't matter that the parent is old in age or that we are older/old--the loss is heartbreaking. And processing grief takes time and having to deal with that is hard-- making it difficult to focus on the way we eat. I couldn't eat at all for several days when mom died, losing 4 pounds in a short time. It took over a year to reach the point where mom's death wasn't the first thing I thought of when I woke up in the morning. And not a day has gone by since that I have not thought about her at least once a day or wished that I could pick up the phone and call her. I'm at a place now where I can focus on the remarkable woman she was and a wonderful mother to me and all her kids. Don't be hard on yourself for regaining. Life happens and we do the best we can. And by the grace of God we get through."

                        Thank You Dinah Soar...!

Calories Still Count....

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 212.4-Pounds.

I am happy to report that. The other day when I went to that Chinese Buffet I figured that I would be doomed. Seriously, I had been gaining and gaining. I was thinking I am not doing so well here.

I am trying to lose weight. I have to follow a steady pattern keeping my calories around 1,500-2,000-calories. Yes, I do sometimes exceed 1,500-calories. Yet, sometimes I come in under 1,500-calories. Over the week it then averages out.

Now, is it easy to do? NOPE... It's so tempting to eat all the extra food. I am a big fan of snicker bars. I also still have my sweet tooth. Wouldn't you think that after trying to lose weight for so many years I would have conquered my sweet tooth? I would have. Nope, it's there, and when I see a Snickers bar, or some other goody, then I satisfy it.

Here is the difference though. I don't feel guilty when I do eat something sweet. I just modify my diet for the rest of the day.

I am keenly aware of what it is I eat. And, it's a pain in the butt.

I do regret that I regained all this weight because it's like human torture trying to lose the weight again. I could have maintained. But, my mom died four years ago, and I got very depressed. I was deeply cut when she died. It was all that I could do just to get up in the morning. It's only by the grace of God I was able to.

I am working on something that may be helping me lose weight. I don't want to share it now because I want to see if it's what's actually helping my metabolism.

That's all for now...

Oh Come On...

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 214-Pounds.

Wait a minute David, how can you do that? How can you go from 218-Pounds the other day to what you are now? How can you have admitted that you over ate the other day at a buffet and still come in at 214-Pounds? How is that possible?

Well it's true, and I am not lying.

Maybe it's because I've upped my intake of Magnesium. Maybe it's because I have upped my Vitamin B intake. I don't know... That might be it.

I have been deliberately portioning my food up until two days ago when I went with a friend to lunch. Then I went to this Chinese Buffet and had about four plates of food... Yikes...

Well, it's all in the potty now...

Piggy Wiggy, That's Me

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 215.2-Pounds.

That's not bad considering what I ate yesterday. Now, I have always written, one day of over eating isn't going to pack on those pounds. It's the over eating day after day that gets us into trouble.
If you are paying attention a month or so ago I was at 209-Pounds. Now I am back up to around 215-Pounds. So the eating has caught up with me. That's 6-Pounds regained.

Ouch David, you are a piggy wiggy...
Yeah, so are most of us...
Sorry to write that.

Keeping That Weight Score...!

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 214.4-Pounds.

That's down 4-Pounds from yesterday...

Hey did you want to know what I ate last night? I ate a Snickers bar, and drank a bottle Iced Rasberry tea with sugar in it.... OH DAVID....!

Now, if I wasn't keeping score each day, what would I look like in a year? That's right, I would be big as a house...

It pays off to be weighing myself each day.

That's 1-Pound lower than yesterday.

I have been a naughty boy. The other day I went shopping and decided to buy some sweetrolls to bake in the oven. I made them and ate them ... I estimate they were about 220 calories times 8 .... to total about 1,800... calories or so....

Yikes... David.... No wonder you aren't losing any weight....
