If you’ve been waiting for my weekly weigh-in that is. It’s not quite been a week, but I’ve picked Sunday as the day to mark progress (or failure) in my war with obesity.
I was sorely tested yesterday. I started the morning with some eggs and bacon (but no toast or hash browns of course). Later on we drove to Aiken for a big tourney in a format that required continuous play (standing and walking) for five straight hours. Anyway, as we were arriving Jee Yeun announced her craving for a Burger King Junior Whooper. I try to accommodate her desires when possible, and the people at the embassy did say that I had to feed her as a condition of granting her visa. It smelled so good, but I refused the proffered bite.
So, I basically starved myself all afternoon (ha, you could call it the hunger games I suppose). I did indulge myself three ultra light beers (2.6g of carbohydrates each) which is about half the amount I’d normally drink under stressful tournament conditions. I filled the gaps with Diet Coke.
Anyway, despite my hunger I resisted the urge for fast food on the long drive home and instead thought about what I’d cook for myself when I arrived. That turned out to be two grilled hamburger patties, two small corn-on-the-cob, and a small chef salad. Yeah, I’m still eating a lot, just limiting the carbs.
And now (drum roll please) the results:
Weight: 272.0 (down from 278.5)
Girth (because circumference is too hard to spell): 51.0″ (down from 51.5″)
I’ll take those results! Of course, sustainability is another issue. But so far, so good.
