I am currently at 193.5 (wearing a dry-fit shirt, basketball shorts, drawers, socks).
Just pulling a post from before. Weighed in today, after a Memorial Day weekend vacation to Pigeon Forge, TN and my son's end of season party last night.
Not only did weight go down, but here is the list of stuff over the long weekend and last night.
Friday: 1 chocolate and sprinkle donut, Cracker Barrel (Steak salad with a ranch based dressing), Restaurant BBQ (ribs, pulled pork, chicken, slaw, beans)
Saturday: 2 glazed donuts, Catfish Restaurant (grilled trout, navy beans, slaw, mashed potatoes, 1 hush puppy), family cookout (2 decent sized rib-eyes, corn, beans)
Sunday, which was by far the worst: family breakfast (3 egg omlette with bacon, sausage, steak, onion, green pepper, spinach, cheese... plus nibbling sausage, steak and bacon while I cooked), Brick oven pizza joint (covered about 2/3 of a 14" pepperoni pie), another BBQ restaurant (ribs, pulled pork, chicken, beans, slaw, and 1/2 of my son's burger). Chased with a Dr. Pepper and ice cream when we got back to the cabin.
Tuesday: behaved until dinner time. 4 large slices of pepperoni pizza (slightly more than 1/2 of a pie) and a decent slice of cake.
Effective calorie management over the other 7 days plus a BUNCH of activity... for the win.
