Well this was a tough week I thought.  My parents came into town and the were surprised with how I was looking.  They knew I was on the diet so that took away some of the wow factor but it was still great to hear them say that I was doing a good job.  I took them out to eat a couple of times while they were here this weekend and that was a little different because normally I will only  go out once a week for a salad with some friends just so I don't lose all of the social aspects of my life.  I took them to the Overland Express and ordered a salad with balsamic vinegar.  When it came out they had already drowned the salad with dressing and cheese.  So I grabbed my napkin and started wiping off my lettuce when the waitress came over and asked if she saw me wiping my lettuce off with a napkin.  I told her yes and she went back and got me a new salad with the dressing on the side.  I thought that was really nice of her. Now for some results. I went and weighed in this week for 6.6lbs of lost weight and 3 inches gone.  So that puts me at a total of 52.8lbs and down to 304.2lbs total.  I am very excited because I broke the 50lb mark and am on the way down that big hill of 100lbs.  Also that means that next week I will potentially be under 300lbs.  I haven't been there in about 5 yrs when I was there for about 2 weeks and went quickly back up.  NEXT WEEK IS GOING TO BE HUGE FOR ME!!!!

So Today I lost another 7lbs and 6 inches.  I will be posting pictures tomorrow.  So as of today I broke the 40 mark and got to 46.2 lbs.  It is a great feeling bouncing back from last week's small number.   I am also pretty excited about inches.  Today when I got measured I looked at my first numbers and I have lost 6" inches from my chest and 9" from my waste.  I have also dropped at least 4 pants sizes.  I started this life change off on the very last notch of my belt.  Well now I have jumped into notch 8! Which I had to add in the belt myself because I ran out of the holes the belt came with.

So this week was a little bit of a disappointment.  I only lost 4 lbs.  But I think we figured out what happened.  I was back stage during rehearsal and my character has some candy that I use.  Well I forgot I was on this life change and I had a few pieces.  When  I went and looked at the package there are 11g of sugar in a serving size.  I am not sure how many were in the serving size but I do know I ate probably two servings with out thinking about it which knocked my body's process out of order so I basically had to start over.   So I didn't have a full week of fat burning.   I was very disjointed in myself because I wanted to get to the 40 lb. mark but I didn't make it.  Oh well I guess it is a good thing because I lost weight and know what I did so I won't make that mistake again.  I now have lost a total of 39.2 lbs so next week will be the big 40 hopefully.   My parents are making a trip up to see me after this week.  They haven't seen me since June.  I am pretty sure I had put on weight since they saw me last  but I am hoping that it will be a big surprise to them.


So the exact same amount of weight loss this week as lost week for a total of 5.6 lbs.  Bringing the total up to 35.2


So things slowed down a little bit I only lost 5.6 lbs this week but It is still with in the average.  So I guess that is good.


Wow so another tough week it was but I got through it and lost another 7.8 lbs  Bringing the total up to 24lbs.  So things are going really good.


Wow so it was a great first week.  They said that the first week is always the biggest.  Well it was I lost 16.2 lbs and 10.5 inches.  Now when I say inches that is a combined measurement.  The measure my chest, waist, hips, biceps, and thighs.  It was a pretty tough week because the amount I was allowed to eat was very much smaller then what I am used to  But I made it through.  I decided I am only going to do pictures every two weeks.

 So I decided that I am tired of walking into someplace and being referred to as "BIG GUY"  So on 8/10/11 I started a Diet called Ideal Protein,  I guess diet is not the right word to use because of all the negative connotations that go with it.  So I guess you could say I started a life style change.  When I first went in I was really excited because I was ready for a change.  
I tipped the scale at 357lbs.  I don't know if that is the heaviest I have ever been but I am pretty sure that it is close.  I have dieted before and have had some success but nothing seemed to help me keep the weight off.  I was unaware of what my body needs how many calories I should be taking in.   So this life style change is completely different for me because it is very strict on what I can and can not eat.  So I am hoping that it goes well.
