238 this morning.  That's 9 pounds down from my recent high of 247 and 14 pounds down from my all-time high of 252 which I hit a year ago.

This is also good news.  Everyone is kicking butt. woohoo!

My first weigh in, at least for awhile, will be tomorrow.  <crosses fingers>

Although this pneumonia shit has kept my appetite low, I have been mostly eating a vegatarian diet for the last week or two because veggies and fruit is great around here this time of year.  Last night 90% of my dinner was a giant plate of fresh cooked Summer Squash.. YUMMY. Hoping I come in around 265 tomorrow.

Although I doubt I can match ATB's losses, he's really workin' it.

I'm guessing you mean Arkon. Only thing I'm really working is the mileage I'm running. I'm hoping to do over 40 miles this week.

Yes, typo mistake.  40 miles?  I've always sucked at running, I am winded in a mere 100 yards.

My breakfast today at 9:30 AM: 4 pieces of green pepper deep dish pizza from Dominos. Chips, goldfish, grapes and a Mt. Dew....

For...um.. dessert (for breakfast!?) I ate a large star crunch...  followed almost immediately by 3 TUMS.

So basically I had my daily intake of calories prior to 10 AM....and it was all crap (though pizza isn't that bad).

Fortunately, I ran 10.4 miles this morning so the calories aren't going to have that great of an impact as long as I go light the rest of the day and eat cereal for dinner.

Oh...I had two pieces of toast and a banana prior to the run...and an energy gel during.

Gah. Not my best day...and it's 11 AM!  retard

Well, despite my loss slowing, I am feeling better.  I am much less chronically fatigued.  I don't look like I have lost any weight yet, tho I can't be sure, I was lazy and havent gotten before pictures or measurements.  I have been walking a good bit at work, but the weather has been bad so haven't been able to walk at home.  I will try to remember to get some pics and measurements tonight.

The depression hasn't been that bad.  While down, it isn't as severe, and my mood swings have lessened.  I have been faithful in taking my vitamins, and my diet has been relatively very good.  I am getting better with portion control but still have bad days.  I am working to try and get better at having breakfast daily but it is tough.

Lastly, I have been struggling to break an addiction, and have been doing fairly well at avoiding that addiction.  In the last 2 weeks I have only slipped twice.

9/14/6 - 252.6 lbs

Yesterday was a tough day.  It got very hectic, ended up eating a very late lunch, and then had an early dinner.  Went fairly light on the food tho.  I did manage to get outside for 20 minutes when it stopped raining and got in a walk.  Been trying to do some xtra walking inside at work.

40 miles this week is out the window.

My wake up times the last three days due to grouchy boy:

3:11 AM + 10.4 miles
4:00 AM
3:30 AM + 1.0 miles.

Once awoken up that late in the mornign, I cannot fall asleep. I valiantly tried to run this morning, made it one mile and was completely out of gas.

Scale is not going to be my friend for a while.

If get rest tonight, I might attempt a 10er tomorrow and 15+ on sunday. Otherwise it may just be a repeat of last weekend, 13.8.

so. tired.  disgust

9/15/06 - 253.4 lbs

Yesterday was a rough day.  Long day at work, worked 13 hours, although my food intake wasn't bad.  I had a ceasar salad for lunch, light on the dressing, with lots of chicken, dinner was a skinless boneless chicken bress marinated in italian dressing and a small portion of mashed potatoes, a salad and a small serving of jello.

Sometimes it takes a few days for indulgences to hit the waistline. Hopefully, though, you're burning enough calories that it won't happen.

I feel the pain...  Pneumonia, 3 SOLID weeks of it..  ZERO working out, and worse, about the only thing I FEEL like eating are pure carbohydrates.  I am fucked on my next weigh in, I can feel it.

193 as of this morning.  That's 13 lbs off my all time high. 

I've had some really good eating days and it appears that I'm in the zone in that regard at least for now.

Ran 15.5 miles yesterday, so hopefully that will contribute to additional losses over the next day as I rest my legs for another 10 or so tomorrow.

15.5 miles?  Crimney, I wish I had that kind of time. 

Then again, even if I did, there's no way I'd run 15.5 miles.

Running is high impact, generally best avoided.  Speedwalking is good, running on a treadmill is good because treadmills are much lower impact due to their cushion mechanisms.  Stair stepping is excellent, as is swimming.

I know far far too many people with serious long term damage from running. My childrens pediatrician can barely walk at 50 because of 1-2 miles per day running for 10 years.

I'm aware of the danger, but it's the only exercise I enjoy. I have a 1500.00 treadmill sitting behind me (which has been moderately used) but it's far too difficult and boring to run long distances on it. This particular marathon training session is directly in response to my high cholesterol (261) and weight gain (20 lbs in a year). I supposed it's a damned if you do/don't situation. 

I'm hoping this bout of fitness will create in me a lifestyle change rather than just be another cycle.  I know many people who have run with no difficulties their entire lives, though I doubt I'll be one of them. Still, I have to ride this horse as long as I can...I don't know what else to do otherwise...

You rock, man!

Seriously, congrats.  You've earned it!

The only thing I worry about for you is that it would be very difficult to maintain this diet for any lengthy amount of time.  That's why I'm going more for exercise than diet...it's much easier for me to maintain an exercise program than try to maintain a restrictive diet. 

As an aside, I was 233 this morning.  I'm sure I'll add a pound or two in the next couple of days, but my sickness (and overeating during it) didn't hurt me too badly.

To be honest, I haven't really been on a restrictive diet.  Most of it is merely watching portion sizes.  I actually love salads with tuna on them, and we picked up some ground turkey the other day at Costco on a whim to try.  The burgers were excellent (I added Lea & Perrinsworchester (sp?) sauce, grated romano and parmesan cheese, fresh garlic, a touch of salt and pepper, some chili powder and some cumin.)  They were delicious if I might say so myself.  I still have deserts now and then, I still eat pasta and bread, I just don't pig out like I used to.  I have tried various diets in the past, such as low carb, weight watchers etc, and none worked because I couldn't handle not being able to eat specific foods.

Fantastic!  250 will be a big milestone for me as well, I can't wait.. Another 15lbs to go.. I wish I could exercise now, due to my pneumonia recovery, I am EXTREMELY limited with phsyical activity otherwise I could quickly relapse.  Sux.  Grats man.
