Day 9 – 320, Day 10 – 322

The 316 was a fluke I suppose. Water weight, or something else. Yesterday I was at 320. I did pretty well during the day, but came home to my mom’s baked Mac & Cheese… my ultimate weakness. I ate probably 2000 calories or more of it, possibly twice that, and this morning I was 322….

Day 8 – Depressingly 321

I should have expected this. Not because I didn’t do as well as I expected to yesterday, because I know I didn’t do terribly, but when you lose 10 pounds in 7 days, most of it is probably water weight (especially when your former diet was loaded with sodium), and weight fluctuates. Most people’s weight…

Day 7 – A melancholy 316(.8)

Yesterday I did fantastically. I washed my car, vacuumed out inside, did a lot more physical work than I am used to.  By the end of the day my arms were sore in that really good feeling way, you know the kind?  The soreness you get in your muscles that despite being painful is a…

Day 6 – 317 pounds

I was 326 pounds when I started this again, only 12 pounds less than my heaviest ever weight. Today I am down to 317 according to my fancy new scale.  Almost 10 pounds in 6 days.  Of course, the majority of it is probably water weight from almost entirely cutting out my sodium, but I’ll…

Day 5 – Successes & Failures

I had a bit of cheese yesterday. I had the calories for it, I was still under.  I had hot cocoa today with lunch, 2 servings, but I’ve got the calories for that too.  What I didn’t have calories for was the Rice Krispies Treat and Hershey bar that I got from the vending machine. …

Day 4 – Weightless

My scale is broken, so I wasn’t able to weigh myself.  I’d like to think I’m down to 318, or even lower, but considering how I cheated a bit yesterday it’s probably a good thing I couldn’t weigh myself. I ordered a new scale. It’s a fancy bluetooth one that will send my weight right…

Day 3 – 319 Pounds (I feel really good)

I celebrated a bit today. A coworker brought in this magical chocolate peanut butter powder, 50 calories for 2 tablespoons, you mix it with water until it makes the consistency of a good spread, then use it instead of peanut butter. I had a bit on a piece of honey wheat lite bread and it…

Day 2 – 321 pounds

I wrote yesterday about how reading Penn’s book over the weekend inspired me, and it did inspire me a great deal.  While I don’t plan to follow his crazy diet, a lot of what he wrote really spoke to me. One thing from the book that is on my mind today after yesterday’s success: Hunger…

CrayRay’s Crazy Potato Diet

Over the weekend I read Penn Jillette’s book about his weight loss, and it was a great read.   From the gist of it, the diet is basically eating nothing but plain potatoes for two weeks and then eating nothing but whole plants for the rest of your life (with some exceptions), along with contrast…

My take on Tarot

I called myself a witch or wiccan for many years, off and on from around 2000 until 2-3 years ago, not long after I moved down south.  I say I called myself one, but not that I was one, because I never really embraced it.  All I really wanted was the attention that came with…

People on the interned are Jerks.

I was going to write a beautiful post about my recent wow-RP adventures with my new guild, complete with pictures of a few events and my character who I’ve grown quite attached to. Instead though, I think I will rant for a while in response to my current mood. That mood is annoyed, and the…

Something Cheesy & Inspirational Goes Here.

It seems like a cycle I can’t break. Last week I decided to try again, and today was to be the first day. Well, that wen’t remarkably unwell. It started with the company meeting where I had a sausage biscuit from Chick-Fil-A, (provided by the company, a nice gesture). Then at lunch I had my…
