Weigh in Wednesday, er Thursday

Yesterday was just a whirl wind of a day. I woke up late and it just never stopped after that. I didn't even think to weigh myself yesterday morning. I thought of it around 10 but by then I had had 3 glasses of water and breakfast!  I wasn't about to step on the scale.

So I got on today. Guess what?  NOTHING!  Same as last week.  Could have been worse.  I ate okay last week but not great so I really didn't expect to lose anything major. 

Check out Charlie from Back To The Fridge.  He's driving a weight loss train and he wants as many people on board!!  First read this post.  Then read this.  Or just read the whole stinking blog, it's awesome!  He wants everyone to take a picture of themselves with a card saying your name and "I'm On Board" and send it to him.  It's like a little contract with yourself to stay ON the train and not get off.  The train ain't stopping people!!  GET ON BOARD NOW! 

Today I ate:

Salsa Egg Bagel = 180 calories
Yogurt = 80 calories
Salad = 95 calories
1/2 banana = 60 calories
Lean Cuisine meal = 330 calories
3/4 of a vitatop = 75 calories
Sicilian Meatloaf = 300 calories
6 Zucchini Fritters = 450 calories (YIKES)
2 bites of ice cream = 50 calories

Total calories = 1620 calories

I bombed on the zucchini fritters. I mean to only have 3 of them but they were so darned tasty and I was so hungry!!  They were actually super healthy but the calories add up!  If I stick to my 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 DIET, I can succeed!  It's just sticking with it that is the problem!!  Grrr.

I seriously thought about that train a lot today!  Thanks Charlie!


  1. Just stick to it, and maintaining isn't a failure! It's a good thing. Fight harder this week. Go to battle! You can do it! No more fritters! If they are going to taste so delicious and once you start you won't be able to stop, don't start! Find something else! Chug water! Go through the drive thru at McDonalds and get a low fat cone for 150 calories with tons of protein! That's a much better choice and so delicious too.

    I of course am now dropping weight like a hat. I suspect that's not a good thing, but I have to admit it is sort of a relief to get on the scale every day and see a drop.

    That's what happens when the thought of eating makes you sick... :(

  2. Thanks for the shout out. There's always room for more on the train!

  3. Okay, I'm hopping aboard, too. I don't want to miss the fun! My card is made, and I'll send it in after I've had my shower and done my hair. ;-)
