Hey all. It’s Week 5 and I can already tell these results aren’t going to be good. So with that out of the way…

Weekly Weigh-In for May 15, 2018: 237.2 lbs.
Loss/Gain for the week: +0.4 lbs.
Total lost:  7.6 lbs.
Weekly average loss: 1.5 lbs.

While not exactly promising, there’s still 39 weeks left and if I can average that 1 pound per week, I’ll be just under 200 lbs. by my 50th. Still a realistic goal.

But let’s break this week down even further.

Weekend exercise: None because I was once again busy with the family. I took my son to the Dodger game on Saturday and we took all the moms to lunch on Sunday, Mother’s Day. I will be back on it this weekend for sure.

Food: On Saturday night and I had my usual Dodger Dog and fries. No complaints there — I really enjoyed them both and what’s a little cheating every now and then, right? Sunday consisted of the Sizzler salad bar where I stuck with a salad and a baked potato but maybe should have just had the salad. Then again it was Mother’s Day and moms will wonder if you’re feeling okay if you’re not eating.

I’m still sticking with the egg for breakfast and have since tried cereal for a day and it just didn’t feel right. Cereal seems to be much more compulsive to me in that you can’t chew it the way you can a more solid food since it’s sort of already making its way down your throat by the time you reach 10 chews (yes, I’m counting how many times I chew). That said, you can see how unsatisfying it really can be.

On the other hand, here’s something that’s been working for me as a suitable lunch: a bag of beef jerky. Although a little high on sodium, most beef jerky is low in fat and very high in protein. With the bags I’ve been eating, that’s about 240 calories, 4.5g fat and 30g protein per bag (at three servings per bag). Plus it takes a lot of chewing to break that jerky down to a smaller size. Alternating between that and the tuna, my lunches at work have been pretty satisfying.

So okay, let’s get last week behind us and start on fresh this week. Hitting that reset button right NOW with no regrets.

See you next week 🙂
