McFatty Monday – Just call me Jaba

21 Jun

I’m just going to come right out and say it. I completely blew my diet the past 5 days. And I’m not just talking about a few extra chips, I’m talking about consuming more calories than I normally do in an entire day in just one MEAL! Ugh.. let’s see where do I start?

Well there was the bag of Cheeseburger Dortios, 2 Cheese burgers, 2 orders of french fries, chicken nuggets, bbq chicken pizza, brownies, a hot dog, potato salad, 3 beers, 1 glass of wine and some more bbq chicken pizza. All in a 5 day period that I would like to declare as “GorgeFest 2010.” WHAT THE HELL WAS I THINKING?

Needless to say I stepped on the scale this morning out of pure need to self inflict myself with pain. I told myself “154” which is 4lbs above where I was last week and figured that gave me plenty of room to be below that and feel better about my food choices. WRONG. 155.2, I winced when I read that number at 6 am. Despite my 900 calorie burn on a hike on Saturday I still managed to gain 5.2. Just call me Jaba the Hut from now on.

I’m putting a stop to this now though, I can’t keep up this downward spiral any longer. I need to be eating healthy and stop eating this crap. I’ve lost the weight before I can do it again. I’m starting a new exercise routine today and ready to get focused and I’m committed to doing this right!

Dammit I want a grilled cheese sandwich right now.


Tales of the Scale

14 Jun

Oh Scale how I loath you. I step on you after a weekend of bbq chicken pizza, spinach artichoke chicken pizza, chips, pretzels filled with peanut butter, ice cream, and the list goes on and on. I really self sabotaged this time.

Now up 13 pounds from my original goal weight I am feeling pretty shitty these days in my clothes. I have a friend coming into town in 2 weeks and I really want to look my best. I re signed up for weight watchers online today. I had a lot of success with that program a few years ago and hope this will help me get control of this downward spiral I’ve been experiencing the last few months.

I have decided in order to keep myself accountable I will be letting you all know how I am doing each Monday and weighing in. My goal is to be down a 6 pounds by the 25th. I know that seems crazy since that is 12 days away, but I know I can do it.  A blog that I love to read Heir to Blair does a “McFatty Monday” post every week on her journey with weight loss. I always love reading her posts about it because she is incredibly honest and I appreciate that. So I will be following suite and doing the same. I wont be posting pictures of myself though since I am not revealing my true identity with this blog but I will be telling you my weight and what I’m doing. Wow I just released how incredibly lame I just sounded by saying “true identity” what am I superman? Sorry about that.

Starting Weight: 153

Weight Loss Goal: 140

Total weight to loose: 13

Nutrition Plan: Weight Watchers Online

Exercise: 6 days a week of low impact exercise (dr.’s orders), I will be using a combination of my Leslie Sansone, Slim in 6, and Body Gospel Dvd’s.

Ready, Set go! My McFatty Monday has begun!
