Houston...we have a problem.

Houston…we have a problem.

My wife and I went to Target over the weekend to get some stuff for our new house. While we were there, I found a weight scale that I really, really wanted. I have had some suspicions that the weight scale at work that I weigh on was off.

The scale is made by Health-O-Meter, so it was a good one. I took it home, put in the batteries and weighed. The total weight it gave me was a good 7 pounds off from the scale at work – and it wasn’t in my favor! Sucks big time.

This means I am now at 308 instead of under 300 as I announced. Very disappointing, but will not slow me down. I have still lost the same amount of weight, I'm just not under 300 like I thought. But hey, it sure felt good thinking I was under 300, so I’ve got to get back to that feeling!

On the menu today:

Breakfast: Oatmeal with a tablespoon of peanut butter and cinnamon.

Midmorning snack: 6 triskets and an apple

Lunch: leftovers from last night- Italian sausage, zucchini, tomatoes and low carb soy pasta.

Afternoon snack: yogurt

Dinner: ? I have to rehearse with my band tonight so it will probably be a veggie burger at Burger King. Those things are pretty durn good.

There is always light at the end of the tunnel. I lost over 60lbs my weight has been an issue for me ever since i was a child. My take on it is, you want to eat what you would normally eat. Just LESS of it. DO NOT deprive yourself. Maintain a realistic lifestyle so that once the weight is off you can maintain. Looks like your well on your way.

C'mon, Randy!

How do you know that the Health-O-Meter isn't off?????

Keep the motivation going...I really can't see 2 scales being off by 7 pounds- 1 or 2, yeah, but 7?????

Don't give up!

Hey Randy,
I have a Health-o-meter as well. Just use it as a tool to keep you in check and that's it!!! You're doing great!

Congrats on losing so much weight! You're doing awesome!

I do have one health-related tip I've learned... meat may be a good source of protein but it comes at the expense of lots of saturated fat. You may try going vegetarian for at least a few days a week. I've been veg for over a year & I've never been healthier. :) Also, I'm sure you hear this one a lot, but eat lots of fresh produce. The more processed your food is, the worse it usually is for you.

Good luck and keep up the success stories! :)
