Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

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. 

I thought that I would be losing weight like crazy .... NOPE... I am gaining it instead...
I can't figure it out...

That's the way it is...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the New Magical Mystical Digital Scale weighing in at 214.8-Pounds.

I couldn't believe I was looking at that number this morning. I thought sure this morning I would wake up and see 212-Pounds or less. I am so disappointed. Because all the careful eating is for nothing. Something went wrong... !

Down A Little Bit Today...

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

That's down ever so slightly from yesterday. I am wondering is this a trend? Oh, I won't say it is.
I know it's not dehydration because I drank water before I went to bed last night.

That's all for now...

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...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

Down Today Some

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 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.

Buttered Coffee?

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

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.

On The Road With Too Much Food... ?

David Dane here...

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

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

Yesterday I was out on the road coming back from Michigan. I stopped at Burger King and had a Whopper Sandwich, and French Fries. I had some snacks along the way. I didn't eat anything when I got home. But, you are still seeing yesterday's results..

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....

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.
