A New Day!

Thanks for all the great comments and feedback. It's really cool to that people show so much support.

I had a deep discussion with my wife about my recent struggles. She was so supportive and helped vent out all that I had bottled up. Thanks Sweet Heart!

I'm happy to say that these past few days have been very positive for me. I've stopped night eating and I'm feeling more positive about what's ahead of me.

Yesterday I took my kids to a Major League baseball game.. there were many temptations around. But... I only had a sandwich, with some fries... and two bottles of water (at $5 per bottle). There seemed to be dozens of varities of foods available. As you would guess I thought about eating many times throughout the game but I stayed in my seat to avoided temptations. I also thought about the next time I go to a game having more room in the seat (it was a little tight). It was a great, memorable day.

This next week I will be focusing on getting back to counting calories and walking.



  1. Sporting events are huge temptations. It is actually a good thing that the food and drink costs so rediculously expensive amounts of cash. It helps in combatting the urge to go off the rails of your mission and indulge too much.

    Tipof the hat to you for committing to a great week ahead.

  2. I saw a note in from Mrs. Fatass's blog and stopped by. Congratulations on getting back on track. I have about 200lbs to lose myself and it has been very hard. I have started and strayed many times this year. I liked your last post about having to be honest with yourself. I lesson I need to follow as well. Good luck with your journey.

  3. I'm so glad that I came across your blog. It's good to see another person who finds it important to stay fit and healthy. I have lost over 125 lbs. myself and will be featured in the November 2010 issue of Shape magazine. This is VERY exciting for me! Anyway, my blog is located at if you'd like to check it out. I added your blog to follow, so feel free to follow mine as well. I look forward to reading more of your journey. Take care! <3 Laura


    It's been awhile let us know how it's going. I am doing a mini-blog for the next 8 weeks, hope you can show me some support.

  5. Temptation and self-control are so hard whether you have 50 pounds to lose or 100. I understand. I have eaten SO MUCH in secret. I appreciate your honesty and I am glad you have support. You can do it.
