February 10, 2020 New Low Point #healthylifestyle #friendssupportingfriends

February 10, 2020 – Yup, it was water weight. Yesterday I weighed in at 312. The day before 308.
That was less than a MINOR set back. Barely a hiccup!

February 10, 2020 New Low Point

Having run out of my weekly supply of grilled chicken and salmon, I found some Mahi Mahi frozen (Trader Joe’s). I put in toaster over, still frozen solid with some Zombie Hot Sauce, fresh ground salt and pepper and a bag of frozen pineapple tidbits, also from TJs. Yummy. I at all 16oz of fish and all the pineapple. While not as pretty (hence the lack of #foodporn on instagram) the spicy sweet flavor was perfect.

Next I was walking up the monstrous hill to catch a bus to the club, walking nearly a mile from Port Authority to 53rd and 8th.

While teaching a 3-hour class and hosting a show, I sporadically nibbled on three protein bars. ONE Cinnamon Roll, THINK Lemon Bar and THINK Double Caramel Bliss, all have a low GI, with 0-1 sugar. All three brag 20g protein and less than 8g of fat.

I nearly fell asleep at the club. Exhausted! Finally picking myself up I walked back to the bus, then down the hill.

The whole ride I was anxious. I have no protein at the house. The cravings for a lot of bad choices popped in every time the bus passes a Fast Food joint I have avoided for seven months.

The prevailing thought was to hop in the car, before even going inside the house, to go shopping and maybe even grill.

By the time the bus dropped me off, I was ordering delivery.

Mixed grill kabobs and assorted cold appetizers. Beyti offers the most delishous chicken and lamb. I forgot to substitute salad for rice. The assorted dips included lebne, hummus, baba ganoush, a second eggplant salad, tabouli and a pepper based puree.

The dips were mostly for my wife, but by skipping the amazing homemade bread, more like pizza than traditional pita, I could taste.

Most importantly I made sure to guzzled LOTS of water yesterday. The day before I replaced water with three decaf coffees.

I also made sure to reduce the salt for the day.

As a result I purged six pounds of water from the body.

Forward we March….

February 7, 2020 New Low Point

Highest weigh ever? 383.2 73+ pounds strategically removed since 7/1/2019

It occurs to me that when I choose the right foods, in almost any portion, I break even. If I simply moderate portions, I lose.

I am not going to bed hungry. However I often still go to bed with the deep sub conscious though, I SHOULD EAT!

I made the realization in Weight Watchers years ago.
I have NEVER been hungry in my life.

I have forgotten to eat, due to busy schedule, and felt light headed, but it was not hunger. I just had an inconsistent intake of quality energy foods.

Instead of hunger, I get a psycholical imperative to eat. Usually comes from boredom, anxiety, or other emotional response.
Traditionally I equally commiserate and celebrate with food and drink.

I started the day with comfort carbs.

I put myself to bed the same way. I was always seeking “comfort”. Of course what I got was discomfort around the belt.

When focused on weight loss I have to be lasar focuses. Sometimes that creates anxiety that leads to habitual food cravings.

Two days ago, this happened. Thankfully the fridge was full of veggies and lean proteins.

I binged and broke even on the day.

By following that up with a very moderate consumption day, I am down three pounds from one week ago.

Come celebrate with me I’m hosting the 6:30 show tonight at the Broadway Comedy Club, Times Square NYC. CLICK HERE for discount tickets.

Time for a new belt! Waist Down 8+ inches

Last spring I was busting out of 54″ elastic waist khakis.

Today I wore a non elastic 46″ waist khaki.

I bought these pants a few weeks ago and barely squeezed in while today they were comfortable and even slimming.

Weary of buying too many new clothes that may not fit right in a few weeks later (dropping that fast at times.) I have continued to rotate the old pants into my wardrobe.

Two days ago I nearly tripped, walking with pant legs tucked under my heels. Inseam has not changed, but all that material around a smaller butt is causing drag.

Great problem to have!

Next big stop?

30 year high school reunion. Maybe I’ll be back to my high school rock band front man weight

What is your goal? #healthylifestyle #friendssupportingfriends

In response to my images of the scale reflecting new low points, many friends have asked this question to me.

What is your goal?

I have one goal.

Healthy!

No number? No date?

Nope.

I can not predict how I’ll look and feel after losing 10, 20, or more pounds.

I’ve been 300+ pounds for 25+ years.

I’ve been 350+ pounds for better part of the last 14 years.

Every pound is a victory!

I’ve lost 50+ pounds twice before, in 2008 and 2013.

I have thought about dieting so many times, but the anger and sadness that I failed and gained back the weight each time, with a vengeance, is depressing.

I never want to go back to that place.

What’s different this time?

No bullshit!

I am more hyper aware than ever as to what works for me.

I am aware more than ever I need to ignore the so called advice from others.

I am aware that every time I slip I am offending myself and the hard work it took to get that victory.

Don’t know where I am headed but I am never going back

A boss of mine once told me I will always be fat. Not sure if he said that as a total jerk or as a way to challenge me.

The words were equally depressing and motivating.

Other shave told me I can do it and I did not.

For twenty plus years I have known what to do. I could have written this blog, perhaps a book, many times over

But knowledge is useless without action.

Do what you always do, get what you always got

One of my big “secrets” is creating new habits.

I know I cannot portion control well so I have to cut out certain foods altogether.

So I need to just say no to all chips, crackers, nuts, chocolate, cookies, cakes, donuts, bread, pasta, milk, cheese, alcohol, caffiene etc etc etc

Some of these foods trigger cravings, others kill my metabolism.

What ever it is, by not eating these food, I lose.

When I even sneak a taste, I slip backwards.

Add to that avoiding to much downtime on the couch and the formula is simple.

off to the gym and some laps in the pools….
