TALES FROM THE SCALE(s)
May 1, 2010

TALES FROM THE SCALE(s)

okay --- so, technically i haven't been what one would consider "BEING GOOD" with the healthy eating (this has been since I adopted Gigglepup one month ago today actually!)

as you might have noticed, I haven't been posting my food intake/calories/etc in 30 days.

in fact, in the past week, I've eaten:
mcdonald's 20 pc mcnugget
mcdonald's double quarter pounder with cheese
2 mcd's large fries

windmill hot dogs (4)
windmill fries (2)
windmill cheeseburger with fried onions

wendy's triple cheeseburger (yes. I did write triple)
wendy's large fries

about 7 large coca-colas

boston market chicken pot pie
boston market green beans

starbucks venti coffee frappuchino

7 days worth of dunkin donuts sausage and cheese on a croissant
tons of iced toasted almond coffee with skim milk and 1 sugar each

17 pierogies
1 kielbasa

2 lean cuisine little pizzas

1 large thin crust pizza (not lean cuisine)

slice of chocolate cake

--------------------

okay - that's about all I can remember eating...

so I stepped on the scale today to just see what my weight was --- because I was sure it was going to be absolutely FRIGHTENING.

i was shocked when it was still the 225 I was on April 20th... so I was thinking that the scale was effed. totally effed. and i moved it around various places on the floor. still 225.

SO.... I WENT TO TARGET AND BOUGHT A NEW SCALE.

came home. stepped on it.

225.6 pounds.

holy smokes. my original scale wasn't terribly off. ah, I wanted to get a new scale anyway...

but really? after all that? of course, if i HAD been watching my calories, I probably would be down a lot more in the weight dept. ---- so, at least I'm not discouraged.

tomorrow morning.... HIGH FIBER OATMEAL

is this right? 49 days until I turn 40???

is this right? 49 days until I turn 40???

wow. i haven't posted an entry that mentioned "the countdown" since April 20th. I suppose since it was 62 days back then, that 49 days is correct. cuss. 49 days.

okay, well... time to get (and forgive me for saying this) crack-a-lackin'.

last night, gigglecousin texted me to see if i wanted to join weight watchers today... here's the skinny on that: for the past 4 years I've been paying monthly dues to WW even when i haven't gone for months at a clip... kept the account alive "just in case" i went back at any time.

last TUESDAY I actually canceled the cussin' thing. but now i'll be starting it back up again today (not that i really want to figure out the points and all that. I kinda like just writing down all the details like i had been doing.)

it figures.

anyway... woke up. decided to get back on the high fiber oatmeal bandwagon this morning.

will post food updates later.

still 48 days til 40

gigglemom is on my desktop & the laptop is being repaired... meant to post that I had 2 slices of double fibre wheat bread with butter, 3 string cheese, 2 iced coffees with skim milk & 1 sugar each, 1 baked chicken breast, fruit cocktail and 2 cups of rice today. not bad. will organize this better later.

UPDATE:

okay - was able to regain control of the desktop for a moment...
remember the other day when I said I bought a new scale? okay, well, it's one of those fancypants ones that has all the bells and whistles that tell you how fat you are.

i know i should weigh in during the morning, but, i wanted to set the thing up... so, keep in mind that I stepped on this thing at 1am (with a belly full of the aforementioned food.)

weight: 224.1
body fat: 87.7 lbs
body fat %: 38.7 %
body water: 44.7 %
bone mass: 6.9 %
body mass index (BMI): 36.0 lbs

okay - well... just for the hell of it i'll weigh in on wednesday morning (*since I didn't do it on tuesday morning when I'd planned to) to see how different the scale/"hey you're fat" results are from tonight.

47 days to go!

42 to 40...

okay - so I went to weight watchers tonight (gigglecousin and i re-joined last week.) according to THAT scale there, I've lost 2.6 pounds this week. we'll see what MY scale says when I weigh in here at home (nekkid as a jay bird first thing in the morning) tomorrow.

i'm too lazy right now to figure out the calories/points/etc for my food intake today...

breakfast:
high fiber oatmeal
iced toasted almond coffee
skim milk
1 sugar

dinner:
garden vegetable soup
balsamic bleu salad (atlanta bread)
1/2 chicken waldorf sandwich on baguette


so, we'll see what the what is tomorrow morning. i haven't been all that great with the eating this past week (last night I had a pasta dish and tira misu from Carrabba's --- i think they totally effed up the tira misu though. it tasted like it was soaked in whiskey rather than coffee liqueur...

don't get me wrong, i ate it anyway.
