Day 59 - 197.8

Well, I guess I should be pleased with a half pound loss. Tomorrow I want to see 196.8!

Here is my food log for yesterday:

6.75 ounces (cooked) ground beef
3 ounces sour cream
1/2 cup cheese
2 diet shakes
2 whole eggs, deviled
.5 tsp onion powder, chili powder and garlic powder, cumin (could not get calories for this one)

I listed the seasonings I used on the ground beef because they do contain carbs, etc.

Calories = 1459
Fat = 98.8 grams
Carbs = 24.7
Protein = 121.3 grams

My percentages are:

Fat = 58%
Carbs = 7%
Protein = 35%

Day 58 - 198.4 I used to track my percentages of fat, protein and carbs. I was very worried that my numbers were too high yesterday...but the scale showed today that this was just what I needed. I am really glad because I was getting so frustrated!

Here were my totals:

Calories 1240
Fat grams 89.2
Carbs 34.5
Protein grams 79.9

Percentages come to:

Fat = 63%
Carbs = 11%
Protein = 26%

My foods were:
2 hard boiled eggs
2 shakes
2 eggs over easy fried in butter
3 slices of bacon
2 slices of cheddar cheese
1 deviled egg
I whole raw avocado
2 servings of crystal light
4 black coffees

The blog has been really helpful, but I would encourage folks to use fitday to track total calories, etc if you are using this type of diet. It seems I am basically on Atkins OR Eat Fat, Get Thin. They are very similar.

Day 57 - 200.0 this is really pissing me off! TOM is still a week away and I find it hard to believe that I am already retaining water???? I stayed on plan all was kind of hard, but easier than I anticipated. I did the laxative tea with no results which is a bummer. I am sure that and TOM nearing are contributing factors but it is still getting on my damn nerves. If I do not see 199 tomorrow I will probably cry and have a real fit!

Day 56 - 200.0


well, I stayed on plan but I ate too much is my guess. I am taking laxative tea today because nothing has happened for a few days...I think that is why my numbers went up.

Day 55 -199.2

Two pounds overnight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am thrilled with this. Yesterday I had 2 shakes, a small handful of peanuts and 2 sausage patties with 2 eggs scrambled (no milk) with cheddar cheese.

I fully expect 198.0 tomorrow!

Day 54 - 201.2

So here we are...5 days since I had a treat and I still have not gotten back to 199...arrggghhh. I am happy that I am closer BUT what I really want to see tomorrow is 199. No treats this weekend. I am determined that I will NOT have any kind of break from this way of eating until the scale reads 190.

Yesterday I had 2 shakes, a very small handful of peanuts and taco meat on romaine leaves with sour cream and avocado. Oh..I also had a slice of cheddar cheese before bedtime.

More tomorrow. Happy dieting.

Day 53 - 202.4

So, I suppose I should be pleased that I lost 4 tenths of a pound...but I am not! lol. I intend to not allow a treat day until I see 190 on the scale. That is actually a pretty big goal for me since my weekends are really very tough in the eating department. I do have a busy weekend coming up so I think that will be very helpful in keeping myself in line, so to speak.

I fully expect to see 201.0 tomorrow on the scale. I am going to do two shakes today and a light dinner. My laxative tea did not work very I have to do another dose of it today. I have been very tired by the time I get home so I have been blowing off my workouts. Also, it had dropped temperature here today as well and should be cold all weekend.

I intend to ATLEAST work my abs tonight. My neck is slowly getting better and working on the exercise ball should not be painful. I will set that as a mini-goal for this evening.

I am very displeased that I am 53 days in and have caused myself so many setbacks. I should have lost atleast 30 pounds since my start date and I have repeatedly screwed myself!!!!!

Day 52 - 202-8 no change. That was very saddening. I am doing a laxative tea today for obvious reasons. Yesterday I had 1 shake..the rest of my guac and 4 deviled egg halves. I should have added more mayo...I also had two slices of bacon.

Tonite I am making jalepenos stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon.

I have added vitamins to my routine. I usually forget to take them, but I have been making an effort to make sure I get them everyday.

If I do not see the numbers jump down tomorrow, I will have to re-evaluate what I am doing as at this high of a weight, I should see the numbers change each day.

Day 51 - 202.8

Ok...not as much down as I had hoped.

Yesterday I had 1 shake and 2 burger patties with pepperjack cheese and guacamole on top. I think next time I will skip the cheese. It is just a preference with the texture from the avocado.

Tonite I am making deviled eggs for dinner. I will also finish off my guac.

I expect to be back into the 201 zone tomorrow.

Happy dieting.

I wonder about these treat days. This sunday I am going to make an extreme effort to really lower the amount of treating I do. Spending 2-3 days to get back to my Saturday weight is a pain in the old wazoo..

P.S. I think what I am doing is actually closer to "Eat Fat, Get Thin" way of eating. case you want to do some research.

Day 50 - 203.2

Ok..up 2.2 pounds after treat day. I am still happy though as in the past my treat days turned into treat weekends!!! I finally did what I set out to do...woo hoo!

So, because of treat day, I am sure I will not be too hungry today. I will probably make deviled eggs for dinner or something.

More tomorrow!

Day 49 -201.0

One more whole pound it. Today is my treat day, so I do not expect there will be a loss tomorrow...more likely a gain. I dont care tho...this is the first weekend in a while that I allowed myself only 1  day for has been repeated screw-ups for awhile now.

More tomorrow!

Day 48 - 202.0

Ok...added fat and voila! 1.8 pounds down. I re-read my entire blog yesterday and I am now convinced that fat is the key.

Had 1 shake yesterday and for dinner two burger patties slathered in mayo with pepper jack cheese and romaine leaves wrapped around them. It was very good and filling.

Will stick to higher fat to achieve these results. I am planning a treat tomorrow.

HOWEVER...I will eat high fat tomorrow with my treats in order to stay on track. I think I want my treat to be ice cream. :)

Friday, March 18, 2011

Day 47 - 203.8 not as happy as I could be, but the numbers still decreased so I will not bitch too much since I spent two weeks eating like a pig.

I will post my numbers tomorrow but my keyboard at home is "el crappo" so it will probably be just my weigh in results and nothing more.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thursday, March 17, 2011

Day 46 - 204.2 I am very glad the numbers dropped down again.

Yesterday I had zero shakes. My neck has been hurting for over a month and I was preoccupied with pain. I had 3 servings of peanuts (in the jar) and that was 15 carbs. (less carbs than my shakes)

Then for dinner I had 2 hamburger patties dipped in mayo.

Did my bouncer...but no treadmill.

I am taking muscle relaxers at bedtime and now have Tylenol 3 for the I feel pretty loopy and will make the effort to remember to have a shake or two.

202 tomorrow would be fantastic...201 would be even better! :)

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Day 45 - 206.8 I drank less water and the numbers dropped. That works for me! lol.

Did my bouncer and the treadmill as well. I am surprised at how weak I am ,.....I have not worked out in quite sometime...but I felt better for getting my butt in gear.

I stuck to my plan yesterday with ease. The only time it is hard to stay on this plan is after I allow myself a treat...then its a downward spiral. I am not sure how to deal with that as I feel I should allow myself a treat once per is damn hard for me on the weekends!

Happy dieting...and do not do what I did...the messing up part at any rate! lol

Day 44 - 209.6

Ok...none too pleased with this number. I did drink the equivalent of 6.25 pounds worth of water I must have been more dehydrated than I thought. So I am up 4.6 pounds. I went to the bathroom constantly yesterday...

Even though my numbers went up, I am continuing with the water because my skin looks younger. I was looking really old these last couple of weeks so I guess the trade off will be higher numbers.

More tomorrow!

Caveat -  ok...I am going to nix the 5 shakes per day and opt for 3. My reasoning is that 5 shakes amounts to 35 carbs and this is just too high for me....

For example, with three shakes today and my meal tonite I will be just under 25 carbs

3 shakes
3 egg omlette (no milk...cooked in real butter) with 2 tbsp of sour cream and 1/4 cup shredded cheese.

I also will do 10 minutes on my bouncer tonight...I was too tired this morning to get on the rebounder.

Monday, March 14, 2011

Day 43 - 205 this is better than I expected after two weeks off plan.

I am very excited about the new schedule I made for myself. Here it is:

8 -12.5 oz servings of water per day
5 shakes
10 minutes of bouncer in the AM
60 minutes of treadmill after work
1 lean/green meal
Deep clean 1 room of my house per day

I can tell you already I am at 4 servings of water for the day so far and I am shocked at how much I am running to the restroom!

Water has always been my nemisis and I am consistently dehydrated. Well, after reading a ton about it...I am betting big that this is going to really speed my weight loss. AND improve the look of my skin. I have been looking so OLD lately and I know it is because I never drink any water at all!

Happy dieting...more tomorrow.

Day 37 - Went Super

Ok, so I am back on track and feeling much happier. I am waiting for TOM to get here...its late again. Even though I feel a bit crappy from that and the fact that my neck has been hurting for over a month, I am very pleased. I will project to weigh in the day after TOM leaves...if he ever gets here that is.

Happy Dieting.

Monday, March 7, 2011

Day 36 - restart I basically F***** up for a week straight. I am starting over today. I did not weigh in...too scared. But I am happy to say that I am back on track and starting to work out this week! Woo hoo. Happy Dieting.

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

Day 31- no weigh in

Still sick. I just don't care right now, LOL. I will get back to this when I am all healed.
