Meat in the Morning, Fiber at Night

Weighed in this morning at 156 pounds.

In my last blog post from Friday, I mentioned wanting to weigh in at 155 pounds on Saturday morning. I accomplished that.

I also said that on that Saturday I'd be taking a motorcycle ride with my wife for the weekend, and I accomplished that too. So when I weighed in on Monday morning, I was back up to 159 pounds.

Between Monday and Tuesday, I managed to lose weight by sticking to the beef jerky diet on Monday, and Tuesday I actually lunched at a buffet, but I stuck to eating only meats, and consumed no sugar.

I think moving forward, I'm going to try eating meats the first thing I do after waking up. I'm hoping that will not only get my metabolism jump started, but keep it running consistently all day long, assuming I eat more beef jerky later that day.

I'm also going to take fiber supplements in the evening. I'm guessing that should keep my digestion working as I sleep, but without adding calories.

Mexican Food and Beer

Weighed in this morning at 156 pounds. No change from yesterday.

Yesterday I went out on a motorcycle ride with some friends to San Diego, and had lunch at a mexican restaurant. I had a beer, chips & salsa, and a plate of carnitas. I pretty much finished everything and was rather full.

Later on, I stopped at a bar and had a few more beers.

At the bar, I was very tempted to eat some more. By that time I had the space in my belly to do so. But I kept telling myself that it wasn't necessary. I had a big lunch, and my body didn't need more for that day.

And I managed to resist.

It's little successes like that that convince me I'm on the right track. And when I know I'm on the right track, I feel all the more encouraged to go full steam ahead.

Today, I'm hoping to trim off another pound, and weigh in tomorrow morning at 155. Tomorrow the wife and I are heading out for a weekend trip, and I'm sure there'll be a lot of eating and drinking.

Still Keeping My Weight in Check

Weighed in this morning at 156 pounds.

Since my last blog post, which was over a month ago, I've been holding my weight between 150 and 160. Overall, that's good.

A week ago, my wife and I spend a week in Hawaii, celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. I suspected I would gain weight, and I did. But then again, I didn't want to spend the whole week worrying about my weight, and ruining the whole time for my wife.

But I still managed to mitigate the impact by electing to eat more salads. And instead of sweet drinks, I stuck with beer.

Also, our hotel on Waikiki Beach is so close to everything, that it didn't necessitate driving a car. We could walk everywhere, and that obviously helped a lot.

In fact, I wrote a blog post for my other diet blog, "How to Lose Weight on Vacation".

Well, after returning home from Hawaii, my weight was at 160 pounds. And I've lost four pounds since then.

I'm still eating a lot of beef jerky, but still eating a fair amount of fruits and vegetables too. So far, my diet regimen is largely the same as it has been for the past couple of years. And I'm happy with that. I could easily pig out just as before, but I seem to have gained more tolerance over that time.
