Salad For Dinner…AGAIN?

Feed me?

Okay…as we all know, I am trying to lose weight. My brother has bet me that I can’t get down to 195 pounds before our BIG BIRTHDAY BASH on June 28th. The deal is this…if I get trimmed down to fightin’ weight, he’ll quit smoking. I know what he does to his body really isn’t my concern…but it is. I hate that my brother smokes! I think smoking is quite possibly the worst thing you can do to yourself. Seems strange to me that you would pay money to kill yourself…but that’s just MY opinion, and you are welcome to argue it all you want.

So…I am trying to lose this weight. I started out at 202 the last time I weighed myself (which was a few weeks ago). Since Monday, all I’ve mostly eaten is fruits, salads and nuts. Yesterday, I had a banana, a cup of coffee and a small bowl of cereal after my spinning class in the morning. Then for lunch I had a fat-free t.v. dinner thingee and water that left me feeling highly unsatisfied. But it’s the dinners that I’m most proud of! I’ve stopped off at the grocery every day this week and gotten a salad and fruit to take to work! I buy that and some kind of snack (yesterday was almonds, the day before yogurt covered pretzels). I mean, I’m at work for 10 hours! So I snack on the nuts and stuff and then have the salad for dinner around 5pm. Not bad! That and a bottle of water have been tiding me over nicely!

So I’m on my way! Keep eating the rabbit food and going to the gym and I should be able to drop 7 pounds in 3 weeks…right? Anybody know anything about this kind of stuff? ‘Cause I sure don’t. Never done a diet or really worked out for too long a period of time…so I hope I’m doing this right. I hate the idea of counting calories, but I figure as long as I’m not starving myself, I should be all good. And then Frank can stop smoking and take that extra $100 a month (or whatever he’s blowing on cancer sticks these days) and go buy his son a new set of golf clubs. From what I’ve seen…the kid will use ’em! Or…he can buy me dinner! 🙂

    Dude, you need to eat protein. Protein will fill you up and keep you satisfied for a lot longer than just fruits and vegetables. Also, your body needs protein. You can eat it and still lose weight. Smaller portions and better choices. That means lay off the Cheetos.

    I’ve been eating eggs on my salad and yogurt for breakfast. And I’ve been snacking on almonds and pastachios. I don’t really like Cheetos ’cause they make my hands all messy. Love the Doritos though! But haven’t touched them in a couple of weeks! 🙂

    Wow! What a great idea!
    Yes, by all means, you can lose 7 lbs. in 3 weeks.
    You need protein. And more fiber. Keeps you feeling full and satisfied longer. Eggs in the morning-scrambled, hard boiled, over easy. Add eggs to your salad. Add strawberries to your salad. Fiber1 bars-they are pretty yummy, and can satisfy when you need a snack. A TON OF FRUIT AND VEGGIES. add some tuna to that salad. or eat tilapia for dinner with a salad. or whatever kind of fish you like, as long as it isn’t fried or covered in a ton of butter.

    jeez, i’m just full of ideas, huh? 🙂

    I’m doing to tons of fruits and veggies and eggs on my salads. I like the tilapia…might have to partake this weekend…

    You have to eat to lose. Weird, yes .. but you have to have food in there to burn.
    Fruits and veggies and nuts are good. Don’t forget the protein .. fish! chicken! a little red meat!
    And don’t forget some carbs. wheat! pasta! rice!

    And keep going on the bike. It’ll do wonders.

    Went out and bought me padded ass shorts today. Let’s see if it helps ’cause my bum is KILLING me today…

    If you can eat 10 less grams of fat a day, you will lose at least 1 pound per week. I’m not up on all these new fads,etc., but I think you’ve known me long enough to know that I have never been overweight, out of shape, maybe, but not overweight. (Check with Dr. Forrestal) But, if you can eat 4 or 5 small meals aday, you will lose weight. You must eat a LARGE breakfast; ie; eggs, ham, home fries, toast, oj, black cup of joe. Smaller lunch, and just 4-5 oz. meat, veg or salad or both for dinner. No potatoes after lunch. Absolutely NO EATING AFTER DINNER. Food is for energy, and only for energy. You do not need energy to go to sleep. (Of course, at your age, you MAY need energy for other activities) In other words, eat only what you need to maintain your energy level throughout the day. As late afternoon aproaches with evening sure to follow, quit eating. Drink lemon water, eat your fruit, and some nuts (all nuts are not the same. Keep calorie count to a minimum at night) But, you will always look great and very handsome to me!!!!!
