Bacon Cheeseburger Can Ruin a Diet

Weighed in this morning at 173 pounds, no change from the last weigh in.

Wednesday, my last report, it was supposed to be another beef jerky diet. But I ended up breaking it. What happened is my wife asked me to take her mom to the optometrist. So off I went. My mother-in-law ended up taking 2 hours in there. So to make it up to me, she offered to buy me a burger at Carl's Jr. I couldn't turn that offer down.

So I had their "Bacon Guacamole Six Dollar Cheeseburger", my favorite Carl's burger, with a large size Diet Coke. I still ended up having some jerky earlier that day, about 3 ounces of that leftover Buffalo Bill's Troi Oi Teriyaki.

I figured that cheeseburger would negate any potential weight loss I had hoped for, and sure enough, I weighed in on Thursday morning at 174, up one pound.

On that Thursday, I hooked up with some friends and rode our motorcycles to Enzo's BBQ in Oceanside, CA. I had the half-rack of St. Louis spare ribs, and a Diet Coke. I also had a beer later on that day. Then I came home, and ate the remaining corn chips and salsa.

Oddly enough, I weighed in Friday morning at the same weight, 174.

But on that Friday, I had only 1.5 ounces of jerky, two cans of V8, and one can of Diet Coke, as well as 8 ounces of baby carrots left over from Thanksgiving, along with some ranch dip. That brought me back down to 173 pounds.

Today, we're going to a Christmas party. It's a potluck, so there's going to be tons of food and drink there. It's going to be one of those parties that a dieter like me has to prepare for several days in advance. I had hoped to slim down to about 171 pounds by today, just because I knew this party would put a few pounds back on. We'll see how bad things turn out.
