I prefer if you got a Coke Zero instead of a regular Coke. Really disappointed in that, Bushie, but no fries is no fries. Thank you.

Don't knock him on the double whopper guys. Bigger burger is a better path to his goals than more empty carbs of french fries. That's the real point. Trying to get Bushie to stop eating empty carbs. And please for the love of god salad.

Regular soda is empty carbs, though.

If it's any consolation, I only drank about 2/3 of one large cup.  I did not go back for a refill and I poured out the last third of it.  So, I only consumed about 170 calories with that drink.  That's a little more than a can of coke which is 140 calories.

I'm pretty sure a large is more than 15ish ounces. Tongue

But at least you're making good changes Smiley

I probably had 18-20 oz today, but ice probably takes up 2-3 oz.

I'm getting this up for Grumps who will be your moderator this season:

One point per correct pick.  I don't know if he wants to do tie breakers like I have in past seasons, so I'll leave those off for now, but we can add them later if need be.  Games lock 30 minutes before kickoff.

Only got a Double Whopper With Cheese! I know he's trolling us...

That was my impression. Jeff is parodying himself. Smiley

I only get Double Whoppers.  I can't handle anything bigger.

I am 55 minutes from the first work night of September 2014.  Work Night 21 overall.  It has been a nice, relaxing weekend, but I am ready to get back to work to begin this new month.  My one month anniversary won't officially happen until this Thursday, September 4, but since I was only out of work for one business day in August and was hired on that day (August 1), I consider Month 2 to begin tomorrow since it is a new month.

I just had an early dinner.  I went to Burger King, but only got a Double Whopper with Cheese with no fries and a coke.  I wanted Diet Dr. Pepper, but it was empty.  Even with the large coke, I still have almost 800 calories left today.  I don't plan on eat much else today, so I should end up just over 1,600 calories on the day.

Edit: That should be 1,500 calories.

Good luck Bushie, I'm really impressed to see how you want to lose weight. I wish the best.

Maybe you should do your diet with Papa, Mama Bushie? That would be easier for you to succeed if other people try to do the same thing?

They don't need to lose weight.  Plus, I am over 100 miles away from them.

Certainly. Was just surprised it was that high.

I can walk surprisingly fast for someone as big as I am.  I always had to slow down and wait on Allison to catch up to me.  She is a slow walker because of her shape.

Can't walk for 10 minutes because of church? Park the car two blocks away and it's done.

Do you always have to find something to gripe about?

I just got outside and walked for 10 minutes for a half mile.  It's not much, but again it is a start.  It got my heart rate up for just a bit.  I will walk another 10 minutes tomorrow, then I'll skip Wednesday because of church, but try to walk for 12 minutes on Thursday and Friday.

Good Monday Morning and Happy Labor Day, folks!  I went to bed at 00:20 and woke up at 08:25.  I am ready to begin this new lifestyle.  I still weigh 283.6 this morning and I'm ready to see that start to drop.  The new lifestyle begins today.  I hesitate to call it a diet, but rather a new lifestyle because it involves more than just dieting.  I will get out there and walk for about 10-15 minutes sometime today, either this morning at 1100 or this evening at halftime of the Miami vs. Louisville game.  I do plan to watch the two baseball games and one football game this afternoon and evening, but I will make sure I get out and walk sometime today.  It won't be a very long walk, but it will be enough to get the legs moving and the heart rate up just a bit.

It's just regular white sandwich bread and deli ham with mustard and a slice of American cheese.

I was going to go out for a Labor Day brunch tomorrow, but I'm so eager to get my new lifestyle started that I may just have cereal for breakfast, a couple ham sandwiches for lunch, and a sensible dinner.  I really would like to eat in all day tomorrow, especially since I ate out tonight.  I may go get something from the store to fix tomorrow evening.  So, tomorrow's schedule now looks like this:  Bed time at 02:00 am.  Breakfast at 9:30.  Walk at 10:30.  Big Brother at 11:00.  Baseball at 12:00 and 15:00.  Football at 19:00.  Bed time at 22:45.

How about one ham sandwich? Tongue

I'll consider it.  One sandwich usually is not enough.  I'll probably have a light dinner, so there is that.

Jeff, it is good to have manageable goals but there is no reason that you can't lose 10lbs a month for the first few. Start exercising and eat right. Keep your calories down and don't cheat much. If you must cheat, make sure you earn that but working twice as hard beforehand.
Buy a food scale and track your intake.

I know I should be able to lose 8-10 pounds a month to start, but I'm still going to keep with the 5-6 pounds a month until I figure things out and see first hand what kind of progress I am making.  I reserve the right to make a new goal midway through September if I am losing faster than I anticipated.

Bad news.
Good news! Christie is even deader, while Sanders might fair a little better.

I'm still supporting Christie, but I agree a south-heavy early primary chances could torpedo his campaign early.

As of this morning, I weigh 283.6.  My first goal is 278 by October 1.  A little further out, I want to be down to 268 by Thanksgiving.  That's only 15 pounds total and 5 pounds each of the next three months.  It's a very modest goal, but that's the point right now.  I need goals that are attainable.  With these two challenges, I can do it.  God will be my guide and I will have friends here and on Facebook to support and encourage me and hold my feet to the fire.  Yes, folks, September 1 is going to mark the beginning of a shift away from my unhealthy lifestyle.

I will weigh everyday, just as part of my OCD.  I will post here every three days what I weigh.  I will also report here what I have to eat throughout the day.  I guess I could even take a picture of the scale so there can be visual proof of my progress.

Bushie, ice cream is bad for you. It makes me sad too.

Yeah, I guess it is.  I know it is calorie-laden.  It is a good source of calcium, but that's probably the only benefit.  It is heart-breaking.  Sad

This is what is always going to let you down... you consider changing habits as being a punishment. Not realising that you're adding years to your life, increasing the quality of that life. Therefore giving yourself 'treats' is just a pathway. You don't have the will-power to just have a 'little wafer'.

Also, you need to talk to your parents et al - you cannot do this if you're constantly eating with them and not supporting you in changing your habits.

Since I live roughly 105 miles away from them and only go home once every 3-4 weeks I only eat with them for 2-4 days a month.  September will only see 2 days with them (9/12-13).  After that, it will be October 3 before I go back down there.  I will try to behave down there, but 2-4 meals a month will not murder the entire month.  Still, though, I will still do my best to honor King's challenge.
