I’m trying to think of the right words here.

Annoyed? Probably. Disappointed? Most assuredly.

P***ed off? Oh, definitely.

It seems I’ve reached a wall that I haven’t been able to climb over yet, and that would be the 230 lb. mark. Granted the trip to Las Vegas didn’t help matters but that’s been nearly a week. I guess what it equates to is me working hard and in my mind not seeing results, when I have actually been working to lose those pounds I gained while away for a few days. So in a cosmic sort of way things are working out fine, but it doesn’t seem like they are.

Then there’s today when a group of us are going to lunch and then Ann and I are going on a date. (Yes, married couples can still do that!) I’m hoping to keep my eating under control in both instances and wake up feeling a bit lighter, even if both occasions will cut into my exercising (lunchtime walk and nightly sit-ups, respectively).

Additionally, this Sunday we will be celebrating Mother’s Day a week late because of our trip last weekend. There will be more food for that event. This is going to be a fun few days.

And I’ve also noticed that I have not been stating a goal weight in my Weekly Weigh-Ins which had become part of those posts. Those are what generally keep me motivated and the lack of one has taken a psychological toll. So allow me to do it now.

By the next weigh-in, I will be at 230.5 lbs. That’s not exactly cracking the 230 lbs. mark but it’s pretty close (and it’s 2 lbs. lost for the week). I will also find ways to keep myself busy this weekend so that it will count as exercising, and will continue to do the Ab-Lounge thing.

We’ll see how things are by next Tuesday, when I’m hoping for some good results.


  1. If you’re like most people, you would love to lose some weight or excess body fat, but for whatever reason it hasn’t been that easy. Most people have tried one fad diet after another only to find that even if they lose some weight, their results don’t last very long. The fact is that obesity is becoming a worldwide epidemic. What if there really was a solution? A simple place to start that would work for just about anyone. A solution that has been on our planet since the beginning of time.

You’ve probably never seen a weight loss system or diet program that didn’t recommend that you drink more water. Why? Because your body needs to be properly hydrated in order for you to be successful in your weight loss goals. The problem is that most tap water and bottled water is not effective for optimal hydration. But, when you add just one sachet of [edited] to that water, it provides improved hydration by allowing the water to be more easily absorbed by your body. In addition, [edited] delivers vital electrolytes into your water that improve your overall hydration at the cellular level. [edited] helped Mitch lose over 50 pounds. 2. [edited] provides ionic trace minerals which support healthy weight management. Ensuring that your body gets the optimal level of minerals it needs is a vital component to not only being healthy but also to optimize your weight loss goals. This is because minerals play a key role in important bodily functions that relate to your metabolism. Minerals have a direct effect on appetite control, blood sugar balance, food cravings, adrenal and thyroid hormone functions, and the use of fat for energy in your body. [edited] sachets contain an all-natural mineral complex that releases beneficial trace minerals into the water which can be easily absorbed and used to support your body’s metabolic functions. 3. [edited] gives your water a healthy alkaline boost which helps burn fat. If you want to shed excess body fat with less effort it is important to maintain a healthy pH balance in the body. This is the “hidden secret” to continual fat loss that keeps most people from getting the results they desire. Unfortunately, most of the foods and beverages we consume on a daily basis cause our bodies to become acidic. And the more acidic we are, the more likely we are to store fat. But, with just one sachet of [edited], you can transform your water into a highly alkaline beverage that helps to neutralize acid in your body and trigger the release of excess fat. Mel Kennon
