I Think People Expect Perfection....!

David Dane Here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

I was looking at my blog-views. This is a chart that let's me know how many people have viewed my blog each day. My numbers have gone back down again.
I will admit I don't write that much. There is a reason for that. How many different ways can one say, "Eat Less Food?" Or, It's calories in that matter....?????

I know, I know that there is a fat-blasting program out there called the Atkin's Diet. With that plan someone can lose 20-Pounds in two weeks. That said, after a while the program falls short. That's right I said it.

First off, it gets old eating only meat, and avoiding carbohydrates.

Second, once someone reaches a certain level of weight loss, denying ones self carbohydrates actually induces fatigue. Now the Atkins people will debate that point. But, I know, I did the program, and had great success. But, I did struggle with being tired, and worn out.

Third, calories count; even doing the Atkin's Diet. I do recommend a higher protein ratio to carbohydrates. A 2 for 1 ratio, or maybe a 3 for 1 ratio. Limit breads, and limit sugars. Ingest more proteins, which may include whey proteins.

Also, don't avoid fat all together. Fat is the absolute most dense nutritional food out there. Fat actually is vital for the brain, and the organs. (I am not going to get into all the science.)

That all said, I think people are expecting perfection. It's perfection that will defeat you. I mean it. If you work so hard at limiting yourself from some of the goodies out there, you'll go Coo-Coo...
I read other peoples blogs about weight lose, and see what they do. Oh my... Just get out the bamboo sticks, and start sticking them under the finger nails. 

This weight lose program it LIFE LONG.... That's RIGHT... It's forever, and ever... I keeping thinking maybe I should get a tapeworm implanted in my gut, and then I won't have to worry about it... Just kidding...

There is no such thing as perfection. Because someday, someone we know and love will have a birthday party, a wedding, or an anniversary. There will be sitting on the table all kinds of goodies, that we will try desperately to avoid. (After all we are strong willed... Right...?) Here is what you do.
Have some of the goodies. What did you say? That's right, it's not going to kill you...
Now that big fat hypocrite lying tramp Michelle Obama might get the fat-police after you... Until then indulge yourself a little...
Then cut back in some other area....

I don't care what the idiots out there who say "SUGAR" is poison say. I don't care what the fat-police say... Some sugar (especially that white processed kind, or corn syrup) won't kill you. It's the over consumption of sugar that gets us....
It's the constant eating all day long that gets us.
It's that need to graze that gets us...

Deliberate limiting of our food consumption is an all over program. There is a balance. But, you have to find it for you...

Here is the formula: You must consume fewer calories than the body needs in order to put yourself into a deprived mode for the day. (Calorie Deficit)
Fewer calories than what you usually consume.

Hey... It SUCKS.... I agree...

Most often just giving up soda pops, fruit drinks, sugared ice tea, and sugars in general will do the trick for a lot of people. It did for me many years ago. Just giving up my two liter of Coke everyday cause me to drop 10 pounds in a few months.

You have to experiment... And for goodness sakes, try to avoid being perfect... I promise, it will make you batty, and irritate the hell out of everyone else around you.....

One last thought: This is your program, and lifestyle change. It's not your honey bunny's program, your friend's, your mom's or sister's. It's no one's personal responsibility but your own. It's up to you to make up your mind to keep after it... Here is why: No body really cares. That's right, some people will maybe help you for just a little while. Even those so called "Weight Losing Clubs" (Weight loss support groups) like weight watchers, and TOPS might help for a little while. But, people come and go out of those programs. They soak you for money, and actually produce NEGATIVE results. I know my mom was a life long member of TOPS.....
Eventually she lost her will to keep the pounds off, and all the meetings in the world didn't help.
They actually reinforce negative feelings, and you're hanging out with a bunch of people who really have no will power, or self control in the end anyway.....

Yep, it's your baby... And if you hope to keep that weight off, get some resolve. This is a life-long process. No one, absolutely no one can do it for you....


Bye for now...

Late Night Meals Played Havoc

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

The last two days I have been working 14-hour days and couldn't post.
Here is the breakdown: Friday, February 21, 2014> 213.2-Pounds.
                                    Saturday, February 22, 2014>214.2-Pounds.

I got two comments sent to me on Thursday for that video of the girl who lost 80-Pounds. I tried to post them both. Only one would post. The other disappeared into to cyberspace somewhere. I do not know why. My log says the comment did post. I can't see it.

Sorry ...

Girl Lost Weight Video

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

Last night I came home, and was hungry. I weighed myself and found I was at 209-Pounds. I then ate a ham sandwich because I was hungry. That's what I was seeing on the scale .

I was looking at some videos on you tube and I came across this cute video of a girl who lost 80-Pounds. She told how she did it in this video. I got such a kick out of her so I decided to post it.

She talked about using green tea, and a Chinese Tea as the key to her success. Well, I think that helped, but the reality was she quit eating sugar. Then she eliminated breads, and other carbohydrates that produce insulin immunity in the body. 

I hope she continues in the future.

Still The Same Today

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

That wasn't deliberate. I started a fast two days ago. It was because I wanted to clean everthing out. Then later at night for some reason I got the jumpin-jibblies as I call them. I don't know what bug I was dealing with. I think it was related to the same thing that was giving me a sore throat. I had not eaten anything all day and my system was pretty much clear. Then at night when I went to bed I kept having to get up and run to the bathroom. I didn't get much sleep and had to be up at 5 A.M. to go to the concession stand. I was a tired achy feeling dog... Argh...

Yesterday I tried to eat something solid. I was snacking on popcorn at the concession stand I manned yesterday. A couple times it just came sliding out. I had a peculiar pain in my stomach that was different than the pain of nagging hunger. Maybe it was the gas from what ever was boiling up in my tummy and causing the jumpin-jubblies...

So today I am all better. Everything is coming out normal. Phew....

That's my weight from two days of almost no food...

Jumpin-Jibblies...!

David Dane here...

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

I don't think that's because of  my fasting yesterday. I think I weigh that because I caught some bug, and I didn't feel too well yesterday. Then I went to bed after getting home from work. All night long I was jumping out of bed because I had the jump-jibblies as I like to call them.

I have a sore throat and cough to go along with that.
This morning I had to go real early to open the concession stand at the Skating Rink. I didn't eat anything because I got up, cleaned up and left. I am sitting here at the concession stand now. Honestly, I am afraid to eat something for fear it will just race through me anyway.

I hope this bug doesn't progress...

I Am Fasting Today

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

Last night I was working the concession stand and my lady friend Sabah-ba as I call her brought in a big tray of food. I had just eaten a Hotdog on the bun, and then she showed up. I didn't want to hurt her feelings so I ate it.

This morning I have decided to go on a fast today where I won't eat anything but water, and maybe some coffee.

Did You Watch My Video?

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

That's three days in a row.

Did you view the You Tube Video that I posted on my BLOG yesterday. The woman speaking wrote about the Vegan Myth. She states categorically that the vegetarian diet isn't all that it's cracked up to be. She also stated that the societies who were hunter, gatherer societies, and chowed down on large portions of animals organs, and meat were the most healthy. They didn't suffer with cancers like our modern society does.

The biggest indictment is the amount of corn and sugar our society consumes. She said cancer is fed by "Sugar." She said with out sugar, cancer can't grow. Well that's something to think about now isn't it?

The Vegan Myth...

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 ran across this video and perhaps you'll want to see it... It's an indictment of the vegetarian culture.



I don't agree with much of what she says about feminism, and their view of social justice. However, there are some very interesting things she says about diet, and eating only vegetables.

I think you may want to share this. Or at least view it for your own information.

Up Some Again, But No Worries...!

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 211.2-Pounds.
That's up from yesterday. With a good explanation. Before I ate last night I was at 209-Pounds.
I was hungry and had not eaten that much that day. In fact all I had was a peanutbutter, and jelly sandwich. So I slapped together another peanutbutter, and jelly sandwich and and heated up a small can of vegetarian baked beans. The bread was 200 calories, the peanut butter was about 200 calories, and the beans were 400 calories. My total intake for yesterday was well below 1,500 calories.

So that extra weight gain was food just sitting there waiting to go....

Holding... Holding...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

This is a weird story. Yesterday I worked at the concession stand for five hours. Before I left I consumed one of those BLUE SLUSHIES. Well this morning my waste matter (stool) came out all greenish- blue with a blue haze coming off of it. Just imagine how much dye is in that drink. There is double the sugar in it than a soda pop. I know that's weird... But folks that slushy is all colored sugar and artificial flavors. Yeah, I know, but I drink it anyway.

Sweet Words To Encourage

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 211-Pounds.
That's up from yesterday.

I worked late last night at the concession stand. I had a late night feeding of chicken fajitas , and that' what you are seeing now on the scale.

Sometimes, I get comments from Dinah, and I can't help but want to put them front and center. Here is another one of her sweet comments....

     "BloggerDinahsoar said...
Good for you! You are making steady progress. Perhaps not at the pace you wish, but progress none the less. You deserve a lot of credit.

In the face of hurt and loss you've worked through, and are still working through,the grief. Life can be really hard. It may get us down, but we can't let it keep us down. You are moving forward and triumphing over the hard things. I'm sure your mom would be proud of you. Take comfort in that.

And enjoy your current successes. Tomorrow is a new day, a new struggle perhaps, but the grace we need will always be there, freely given by God

Plus wisdom is ours for the asking. All we need do is ask God for wisdom--he will never upbraid us for asking. When I see that word upbraid I think of the show Sanford and Son. God will never say in response to us asking for wisdom 'you big dummy'. So we never need worry--we can ask God for wisdom as often as we need to, and he will never think us dumb or lacking and will dispense wisdom to those who ask in faith."

I can't add anything to this except Thank You Dinah...

Regained Ground, But Not Ehough

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

That's down from yesterday.

This morning I was looking in the mirror with my T-Shirt on. I was thinking, "Oh my I have a long way to go." I might want to throw out some streamers in celebration at 208-Pounds or so. If you ever read the side panel, I did get down to 174-Pounds.

I am trying to remember what caused the turn around before my mother died. I recall that I used to go up to Wisconsin to go fishing at every chance I could. The gas was way cheaper then, and my rent wasn't killing me like it is now.

I would spend the night at my cousin's house. She loved to cook for me. She would stuff me with her delicacies. She would insist I finish what's in the pot on the stove. During those times I wouldn't bring my scale along. I wasn't watching what was going on.

I was also driving out of town more then. I would go to the hotels where they had the "Free Continental Breakfast." Most of the time the cuisine was carbohydrates like waffles, cereal, breads, and muffins. My sweet tooth never disappeared so I would chow down.

I wrote this before about my mom dying four years ago. Well, when she died I went into a depression. My dad had died six years earlier, and I was just beginning to no longer have dreams about him. When mom died, it started all over. I was dreaming about her and talking to her in very vivid dreams, then I would wake up. She was gone.

When mom died I began drinking beer again, and other alcoholic drinks. I had given them up for so long. Again, I was drinking 3-4 bottles of beer a day. That's not good for the liver because the liver helps process out fats, and toxins. I was over loading the poor thing.

Another thing which contributed me regaining the weight is that I quit weighing myself everyday. One day I stepped up onto the "Magical Mystical Digital Scale" with soaking wet feet after a bath. The water got into the electronics somehow and fried the scale. I went a year without a scale. Yep it was that long. And that year was the same year my chip got stolen from my camera.

No scale, no logging in my log, and I began to swirl out of control. I regained another 40-pounds that year. Yep, it only took a year to go back up to 140-Pounds.

One day I woke up and found I couldn't button my pants on the uniform anymore. I went to the closet and tried some dress pants that I fit comfortably the years before. I couldn't get the zipper up and the button closed. There were blue jeans I had worn years before which now couldn't button or zip. I went into the closet to find my fat-pants that I had worn years before, and found those still fit. Only this time. They stayed up without a belt. I knew I was in heaping-big trouble...

I got onto a scale and went into shock. I was at 241-Pounds. OUCH.... I was dumbfounded and disappointed for sure.

I decided to regain control. I decided it's time to get back on track. It sure wasn't easy. I began to realise my slacking up on the logs, and on the weighing in everyday had gone way to long.

I had to go to the store and purchase a new scale. That's the one I call the "New Magical Mystical Digital Scale."

I began saving my weights on paper again. (Now I put them in my computer.) I began writing my weight again on the blog. I began doing what I was doing.

I had gotten into the habit again consuming candy bars... OH THE SHAME... (I told you I had a sweet tooth.) I was eating more bread again, and had to cut back. I was eating meals that satisfied me, and I had to stop that. In other words that was just way too much food.

My protein to carbohydrate ratios were way off. I had to cut those breads, and pastas and begin eating more proteins. Even there I had to be careful, because calories are calories. If I eat to much of any food that is loaded up with calories, (carbohydrates, or proteins) I gain weight.

Now, I have almost completely given up the beer and alcohol. I don't go and buy it. If it's offered, I might drink it.

I sometimes, but not often indulge in some soda pop. I told you the other day I drank a cup of root beer, and had a very sweet slushy.

So here I am. Back down at 208.4-Pounds. This after having a couple scares there at 218-Pounds or so... Yes those were real weights. They were only withing the last few weeks . it happened because I went out the nights before and really chowed down at a buffet.

I have a long way to go. My belly is still to big. I have to get down to at least 180-Pounds. That's 30-Pounds away.

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

It's Okay I Am Just Slightly Higher In Weight Today

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 209.6-Pounds.
That is a little higher than yesterday. Not much.

Just remember, I had to fast one day with no food to get there. I really did have a bad headached yesterday. It's gone now. And many of the aches I was feeling are going away...

I have been filling myself with the vitamin C. I have been drinking even more water. I know that is possible to over water ourselves... I heard someone can actually die from too much water.

I ate mostly proteins yesterday. I did have one hotdog bun that was about 28-grams of carbohydrates.

I had sausages and eggs. I had one hotdog. I drank down two scoops of protein. And, I took my vitamins...

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

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

Whoa, slow down here. Before we go waving any pomp-pomp's in celebration this isn't what you think. Here is why, I didn't eat anything all day yesterday. I didn't even have my usual cups of coffee in the morning when I get out of bed. I fasted all day, and spent most of the day in bed with a nagging headache that wouldn't go away.

Today I wrote a little about what happened yesterday and then back dated it for yesterday... So you may want to go back and read what I wrote. Well maybe you will...

Anyway, I spent most of the day in bed yesterday with a smashing head-ache that wouldn't go away.
I know why it developed. I was in chilling cold yesterday that ran right up my legs. I was in a plow truck from 1:15 in the morning until 6:45. Then I laid down for a couple of hours in my friends basement only to be kept awakened by his dog that kept barking and howling... The dog needs medication.. LOL... 

In the early morning hours it was rough. Back and forth we went ramming snow into the drifts of piled snow. Imagine being on a roller coaster that would stop suddenly and then go backwards, stop and then go forwards. Then imagine that forces of side-to-side movements going around and around in circles in small parking lots. I wasn't used to it, and my body took a beating for it. By the time it was over I had a smashing headache. I was tired because I had no sleep. Yeah my host let me lay down for two hours before we went out, but he put a guest in the next room who talked and talked and talked.. Then lied about it...

I went out with this guy for 6 hours or so in the truck... Then the butt-head expected me to shovel snow by hand, and use his four wheeler. When I wouldn't comply he quickly discarded me and sent me home...   So needless to say I won't work with this guy again... I'll get my training else where Thank You...!

Early this morning I woke up and still had the headache. I felt like I was hit by a big fist in my neck and shoulders...  I had a flash of ah, ha moment in which I drank a cup of water with three high potency vitamin C capsules. I don't know if the vitamin C's did the work or just a cup of water was all that I needed.

I figured out why my host is such a tall skinny guy... He doesn't eat. If he does, then he has such a high reving metabolism he doesn't need to worry about what he consumes. Lucky him..
And unfortunately he really is inconsiderate when he promises he'll make someone food, and then doesn't follow through...  I was hungry, and tired, and this guy didn't even stop to consider that I might be famished. He wanted me to jump on his four wheeler and just plow snow... Nope, it doesn't work that way guy... And I am here to tell the world you screwed up with me big time.

Me on the other hand, I have got to get some food. I am not kidding it hurts when I don't eat something, and my brain freezes up too...  I can't think straight when I am so hungry...
That's just me.

I am done with my rant here for today...

Are You Being Manipulated?

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

I changed the time on this post because I was out this morning. I weighed myself when I got home.
Now this weight is really because of a no food in the morning day. That's right I had not eaten anything since late yesterday night.

I went to a friends house at 10 P.M. to spend the night before going out with him in his truck to learn to plow snow. Argh... I can tell you it wasn't fun. To be honest with you, the guy who was trying to teach me doesn't believe in eating and taking a food break or coffee break. I won't work with him again.... !

Let me tell you something about manipulative personalities... This guy is one of them. His whole objective is to get his way. He doesn't care what the fall out is from his determined tendencies. He's just driven to get his way. Some women are like this too.  The manipulator will use compliments, and compliments to coax you into what he/she wants you to do. Then when you're in with them they use nasty little comments to rip you apart. This is what this guy did to me. He complimented me, and then I had to put up with his "aggravation"  all the while he sniped at me for not performing up to his level of expertise... 

Don't put up with people like this... Dump them in the COLD... I mean it.... Now, fortunately for me, I am not married to a manipulator... If I were then she'd have to put up with me either leaving her, or putting her back on the planet earth where all the rest of us are... In other words, I wouldn't tolerate it.

Oh, I know it's so easy to say.

When I put this blog together years, and years ago I had to face the cold hard reality that I was going to have to sacrifice something I loved to do "EATING." That's right I had to give up all my goodies. Well most of them anyway.

My objective wasn't to be a snot about it, and self righteous. When I wrote to you, and I still write to you I try to think about the "difficulty" I go through still-to-this-day trying to get off those pounds.
It's a pain in the back side giving up food when I am so hungry....!

I know when I step on the scale I have an objective. That's to be the same as I was the day before, or even maybe a little lower.  Trust me, I had to build the habit of weighing myself every day. I forget to weight myself sometimes.  I decided that the first thing I would do is weigh myself in the morning.
That tactic has worked reasonably well so far.

When you take the time to read what I have written I want you to walk away thinking "I can do this. It's not too late for me."  I am 55-years-old. I have had a problem with my weight for years.
It would be easy for me to throw in the towel and say "It's too late for me." It would be easy for me to say to myself, "David, just live with that fat belly. Just live with the over sized clothes. Just live with the fatigue. Give up David." 

Well, I don't want to give up. I don't want this bulging belly, and tight clothes. I don't like looking in the mirror at a flabby stomach... 

I must resist..... I must resist... Even though I am tired. Even though I am hungry as a dog ... I must resist.

That's the way it ... I'm David Dane

Oh No, A Sugar Over Dose

A Lot Of Food, And A No Show On The Scale

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 213.2-Pounds.

Last night I was up in Wisconsin because of work. I had a friend with me who was kind enough to bring food for me.
Now I had actually consumed a huge amount of protein powder mixed in milk and yogurt. I was ready to go the rest of the night not eating. Well, my friend had made up a lunch for me of curly French Fries, fried potato, and a beef sandwich. Along with that she fed me a rather large piece of cinammon bread with a thick vanilla frosting coated on top. Along with all of that I ate half of a cup of chicken salad, and some tuna salad. So it was actually more food than I usually eat in one sitting.

I hate to think about how many calories that was. I didn't tally it up because I didn't have my scale, and little calorie books. I am sure it was at least 1,500-calories. I actually think it was minumumly 2,000-calories all totaled...

I woke up this morning thinking surely I would be two pounds more than I was yesterday morning.
Nope, I actually was less than yesterday. I also thought since it was so late last night, I would surely see the remains in my tummy before I used the porceline thrown.
Nope, I didn't.

I am greatful to my friend for her kind generosity and for thinking about me.

If I continue to eat like that, then surely I will see the results.

That's the
