Notes: I ate my fair share of peanut butter crunch bars over the weekend… They are over 600 calories a piece, and small bars at that. Friday I had a 1/4 of one at that alone was roughly 150 calories. So you can imagine what, let’s say 10-15 would do to a calorie count.

Saturday & Sunday I don’t keep track (although don’t go way overboard)… yea did fine on Saturday, but Sunday ended up at Serendipity 3 in the city… a huge chocolate and ice cream place.  Probably ate more calories in that one meal than the rest of the weekdays combined…

Notes: Oh, my, was my first day calorie-less hard. Which is funny cause I’ve done that by accident many times. Maybe cause I knew I couldn’t have a bite to eat? Also Thursday… Note to self: don’t bake cookies when trying to to consume calories… Also might notice the difference between Wed and Fri breakfast… I ate half of Callista’s sandwich that she didn’t.

Losing weight idea…

So to keep my honest with my losing weight stuff I’m going to be posting weekly updates here so there’s some record that people will know besides myself. So here’s the start:

Weight: 232.1
Waist: 43″

I once computed on average how much calories I consumed in a day. I totaled about 5,000-6,000 calories. That’s per day. No wonder over the course of a year I gained 15 pounds. Ok… Fair enough that should be way more, especially since I don’t exercise, so my resting body seems to consume a massive amount of calories. Or i don’t absorb them. Either way that’s still probably my biggest problem (yes I know I’m weird… Shouldn’t come to anyone reading this as a surprise).

My plan is thus:
Drinking tons of water (perhaps with some juice or tea for flavor)
Sat & Sun are my off day (watch what I eat, but nothing unussual).
Mon, Wed, & Friday try to stay under 1500 calories
Tue and Thur I’ll be just doing the water thing to cleanse things out.

Will try to post each Monday. I am tracking my calories (even on weekends) via the Myfitness App. My goal is to get down to 200. Dunno how long this will take. Perhaps if I do well enough I will get down to my personal “ideal weight” of 180. This is still way above the “healthy” weight of 140-160 that is what someone of my height and body type should be at… But I’ve done the 160 thing and I don’t look healthy. Hence the 180 goal. Already lost about 4 pounds in the last week or so without actually having a plan, so hopefully this will help some.

Here’s to the next few months…
