Changing My Weight Loss Regimen

Weighed in this morning at 150 pounds, no change from yesterday.

And here's what I did yesterday to maintain weight...

Morning: 1 small whole wheat tortilla (80 calories)
Morning: 1 package, 170g, of blackberries (73 calories)
Afternoon: 3.65oz of beef jerky (300 calories)
Afternoon: 1 can of diet soda (0 calories)
Afternoon: 1 can of V8 Juice (70 calories)
Middle-Afternoon: 7oz of leftover Christmas ham (320 calories)
Middle-Afternoon: 1 can of V8 Juice (70 calories)
Early Evening: 1 can of diet soda (0 calories)
Evening: 1 package, 170g, of blackberries (73 calories)
Late Evening: 1 can of V8 Juice (70 calories)

Total: 1,056 calories

Exercise: I did some weightlifting for the arms, chest, and shoulders, and I did 20 push-ups.

So I drank two cans of diet soda, and three cans of V8. I'm guessing I still have some of that water left in me.

Changing My Weight Loss Regimen

So for the past several months I've been dieting like heck on my diet days, and eating like a pig on my non-diet days. As a result, I've been having roller-coaster swings where I gain about 5-10 pounds over the weekend, and then lose 5-10 pounds over the next few days.

That's still unhealthy the way I see it. So, I want to come up with daily regimen where I can eat a little bit more food on the diet days, and not gorge so much on my non-diet days.

If you've followed this blog regularly, you'll notice that I've been consuming about 600-800 calories a day on my diet days. I want to adjust that to 1,000 calories a day. I want to make up the additional calories by eating more protein, and getting in an extra can of V8 Juice (for the potassium). I think that will help me build muscle mass.

Even though I've been walking about 2-3 times a week, and doing light weight lifting about 1 time a week, it hasn't really helped build muscle. At this weight of 150 pounds, I'm thin. I've probably lost muscle over the past several months. So, I have to work to get some of it back.
