Sold my car

In an effort to be frugal, now that I am unemployed, we decided to sell my car. This leaves us with just one vehicle, similar to when we first moved to our current house. So far, it hasn’t been an issue, but time will tell how well it works out. It is nice not having the extra $500 per month in expenses. I was able to…

100 days

As of my morning weigh-in, I am down 68 pounds in 100 days. I actually think it’s more like 70, but I didn’t weigh myself at the start of day 1, but did it on the morning of day 2. In either case, I am satisfied with how things have gone. 10 more pounds to go till I am at my lowest weight since being a teenager.

90 days in...

and still going strong. Weight loss has slowed a bit, down to 0.68 pounds per day, but I am steadily getting closer to my goal. I am hoping that I reach my original goal (220) in March, and I should reach whatever my new maximum weight will eventually be in April or May. I don’t know if I will ever reach the weight…

The big 50

No, I’m not talking about the big game...or about my age. I’m talking about weight. I’ve lost 50 pounds in 68 days. So far, sticking to my diet hasn’t been as difficult as I thought it might be. I’m still hoping that my health continues to improve. A little over a week ago, I decided to stop taking my prescription…

Shaved my beard

I decided to return to my goatee from my Christmas break full beard yesterday. I shaved in the morning, and my wife and kids didn’t notice all day long. I mentioned it after dinner, and they finally realized the difference. I’m pretty sure this gives me at least one free pass on noticing when my wife gets a haircut.

Ahh...sleep

My brain has been known to betray me. It’s doing it right now, in fact. I need to be up in less than 5 hours for a meeting, and instead of letting me sleep, it’s running all over the place looking under rocks for neat things to examine. One day I’ll learn the trick to turning it off before bed. One thing I did read…

Winter sucks

The worst part about low calorie dieting in the winter is that I am always cold. I also want to get outside and get some walking done, but it’s too cold for that. Unless I want to risk going great some place like a mall to walk indoors, I’m basically stuck at home. I say risk because of my propensity for spending…

I Love Meat

One of the struggles of my new diet is that I LOVE meat. As in the kind of love where people joke that I should marry meat. That said, I also have the same emotional attachment to Diet Coke (I even own stock in it), but I gave it up cold turkey at the start of my diet. Giving up meat is going to be more gradual and…
