Pledge Broken - Starting Again

Today's Weight: 292 pounds

Yesterday's Calories: 4035 calories
Yesterday's Net Carbs: 124 net carbs

I broke my promise of staying below 100 net carbs. Really, I blame it all on my wife - she shouldn't have left the brownie bites on the table for me to see. She knows better. Because I had three, it put me over the 100 mark.

While the calories were high, I'm not worried, but must stay in carb control mode. I'm surprised my weight didn't shoot up more, and that's a true blessing.

Today I pledge to stay under 100 net carbs while utilizing Fitday to keep track of my eating behavior. I pledge to also keep track of my steps so that I can get back over 10,000 steps per day.

Monday's Promise

It's a new week. Nuff said about that.

Today's weight: 294 pounds

I promise today to keep track of my food intake utilizing the Fitday tool. I also promise to keep my net carbs under 100. If I do that, I have a shot at regaining control of myself.

Carbohydrate Overload

Today's Weight: 294 pounds
Yesterday's Calories: 3437
Yesterday's Net Carbs: 339

Boy, did I pound away at the carbs. Now I'm bloated and hoping to regain some control today. I misread the amount of carbs on a piece of bread, not paying attention to the fact that only half of the sourdough bread constitutes a serving, making the full piece of bread a whopping 300 calories. Since I had two pieces, that would bring the total to 6oo calories for two pieces of bread. So one piece of bread had 56 net carbs.

Christ, it was downhill from there. Load on top of that the macaroni and cheese, the burrito, the beer, and the cupcake, and it was a day of disaster. Now I've got to right myself and get back eating like a low carb king.

At least I'm keeping track again so I know when the damage occurs.

Today's Weight: 293 pounds
Yesterday's Calories: 2159 calories
Yesterday's net carbs: 91 carbs

While in control for most of the day, I was upended by my wife and her chocolate cupcakes that she swore she would throw out. At the end of the day I had one, it was good, but not great. Fortunately I was able to stay under 100 net carbs for the day. I'll work on doing better today.

Yesterday was the first day I decided to start keeping track of my carbs. It is what I must do to regain control. I'm almost depressed, but not quite.

Tuesday Nonsense

After reaching 300 pounds a few days ago, I dropped to 296 yesterday, and this morning I am at 294.6 pounds.

I am disheartened by this weight gain, but I am using a different scale to weigh, so I'll be feeling better next month when I am back home on my familiar scale. It appears this scale weighs high, but then again, I might have gained the weight too.

We'll see how all of this goes.

Tuesday's Disappointment

Today's weight: 297.4 pounds

Time to keep track of carbs and calories again. Going in the wrong direction, and I refuse to go over 300. Going on a walk to reflect and focus.

What happened?

Today's Weight: 296.8 pounds

I don't know what happened, I've gained quite a bit since I stopped caring or keeping track of my intake. Time to start again.
