Well...I'm back. I had been hoping I wouldn't have to deal with the whole weight loss process again so soon...but I had a little bit of a lapse and so I'm going to have to tr... Read more

Well...mission accomplished I suppose. I started this whole Sparkpeople thing in order to lose enough weight to enlist in the United States Navy. Well...on April 1st (yes Apri... Read more

I don't have a Flash picture to go with the blog because my computer doesn't have internet access so I'm using my wife's which has WiFi. Anyway...I'm starting back up again...I'm not going to let this winter get the best of me. For the last... Read more
The Worst of the Worst...
Sunday, April 06, 2008      1 comments

The last almost two weeks have made my recent indescretions look like nothing in comparison. I just weighed myself after near a fortnight of eating the worst crap and not really exercising at all and I have gained almost 21 lbs! Granted after a ... Read more
And Again....
Thursday, March 20, 2008      1 comments

Man...you'd think I was truly mentally deficient. I managed to once again turn one bad day into two days full of gut-busting crap food and absolutely zero exercise! I haven't weighed myself today because frankly I don't have the strength to see ... Read more

Well...it took about a week but I finally got the weight back down to my pre-debauchery level (with an extra pound off to boot). Fortunately I was far enough ahead when I stumbled that I didn't lose too much ground though I'm still about a pound... Read more
2 Days of Debauchery = 2 Weeks of Results Down the Tube
Saturday, March 08, 2008      3 comments

I was having a really good couple of weeks. Just three days ago I was down to almost 255 lbs...something I hadn't done since sometime in 2007. Even after I endulged a little on Tuesday...much to my surprise I was still down. But then came Thur... Read more
Last Couple Days...

I've had a relatively fairly good week for exercising. I had intended to keep up with it here but never got around to it (and honestly there probably aren't many people dying to read this thing). Yesterday was a non-working out day (as is ... Read more
02/03 - Coming out of the Winter Fog...sorta
Sunday, February 03, 2008      0 comments

Managed a pretty good walk/run today. I did a little extra because I wasn't going to be able to go to the gym or for a walk/run later in the evening...so instead of my normal three laps around the lake (approx. 1 hr) I did five for a total of 1... Read more

All I got out of today exercise wise was a long walk this morning (aka afternoon)...but considering that I've been having trouble walking as long as I want I was pretty proud even though my bladder almost exploded in the process and I got a sunb... Read more
The Awsomest Present Ever....

I just got a Garmin Forerunner 305 from my wife for my birthday and it is the GREATEST PRESENT EVER! This thing is so frickin' cool! Not only does it have a timer but it has GPS so that it can keep track of distance, speed, pace, location, ele... Read more
It's the Most Horrible Time of the Year (For Dieting)
Saturday, November 17, 2007      0 comments

Halloween is my favorite holiday. I love Winter weather. I HATE this time of year when I'm dieting! No matter what I do I can't seem to make it work. My energy crashes like I'm going into hibernation and I am constantly hungry...add to that... Read more
Near Slip and Energy Crash
Wednesday, October 03, 2007      0 comments

For the first time in almost two weeks I came very close today to slipping up and going way over my calories. I have a bunch of 100 calorie snacks (Twix, 3 Musketeers, and Reese's wafers) and normally I don't have a problem just taking one and l... Read more
9/30 - Weigh-in
Sunday, September 30, 2007      1 comments

Today was a weigh-in day...the last one for me for September for that matter. I managed to lose just over 4 lbs which I was happy about because the last couple of weeks I've been having trouble (but then again this is the first week in a while t... Read more
9/28-9/29 Make up entry + Today
Saturday, September 29, 2007      0 comments

Yesterday was just a walking day. Went to the gym twice and got on the treadmill for an hour each time...it was a very blah day of exercising. Today I'm debating whether or not to do any exercising. I'm already 300 calories over my total for the... Read more
