A pretty good week over all

image How do you like my nails? These aren't my feet. I forgot what blog I got the Photo from, sorry.I actually really don't need any help with the scale I've continue' d to lose an average of 2 lbs a week the last month. I've only lost about 3 inches so I must be building some muscle up. I'm down to 236.8 as of Saturday. I am more than half way to my goal of 165. It seems like such a long way to go still but I have to remember we've only been at this since February 14th. 78 lbs in 4 months. At this pace I should be down to my goal weight by October.


Yesterday Cindy and I got to baby sit Brandon and Preston. A good time was had by all. It's fun being a Grandpa.Brandon has  really got a great disposition and is fun to watch.He's very smart he must have gotten his brains from Mom right?  Next Saturday Adrianne, Josh and Mackenzie are going to come out for a short visit. That will be fun as Mackenzie is really starting to crawl and move around and explore a lot.


image This was dinner tonight. (It tasted better than it looks) Peppers stuffed with rice, black beans and onions, with diced Tomato's. It was very good.  Momma even made a couple extra so I can warm them up for lunches this week.Two half's only came to 360 calories. It was more than enough for dinner as we had a big ole Spinach and lettuce salad with various veggies and a fruit salad for lunch. With my Skinny Cow Ice cream sandwich I'll top out at 1513 calories for the day. My breakfast this morning was a to die for Vegetable omlet with Feta cheese and Bacon that Cindy made. It was one of the best omlets I've had in a while. A lot cheaper to eat at home too.


We continue to go to the gym. I'm getting to where I don't feel guilty when we take a day off now. I really didn't feel like going today at all. (kind of a downward trend in my mood right now) Cindy and I did go though and I ended up doing 8 miles on the bike. Not bad for not wanting to go.

Well off to have my Skinny cow Ice cream sandwich. mmmmmmm

Hey Mark,

Awesome work on the weight loss progress (and awesome work on the nails).

The peppers look yummy to me!

No wonder you're dropping weight fast!

It's hard work but so worth it. I drive about 50 mile round trip to go to the gym so I just figure I might as well bust my butt when I'm there right?

Stephany said...

Yeah, that and eating bell peppers stuffed with vegetarian ingredients! What happened to the famous meatsauce and hot dog guy? LOL
