So I lost another 2 1/2 lbs this week. Not bad. My bodies probably adjusting to the new diet of fruits veggies, chicken, turkey and water. I've decided to try to not eat at all if possible after 10pm. However last night I had an apple after.
A lot of Stephen Moyer/True Blood fans have jumped on board. Which has been great and made a big difference. When I meet him I'll have to thank him for having great fans and also for being so damn sexy.
I'm leaving for LA on Sunday for 10 days and I'll be going to Comic Con in San Diego. That'll be interesting. I'm not going to weigh myself because I want to stay accurate with my own scale. But I'll weigh myself right before I leave and when I come back. I think as long as I keep my diet in check I'll drop a few pounds cuz I'll be walking around a lot.
If you havent donated yet please consider it. It's really adding up. I think I'm going to put full names up so I dont get confused by partial names. If you want to donate but dont want your name up, please let me know.
I just got off the scale. 6 lbs in one week! I'm surprised by the results so far. I figured I'd lose one or two lbs a week. I think my body might be going into shock. And I've watched enough biggest loser to know that at some point I'll plateau.
I'm eating a lot actually but it's all pretty good. Start out in the morning with Special K cereal and skim milk, lunch is usually some salad with some chicken or a plate of chicken and veggies and rice. For dinner I've been eating a turkey patty with lettuce and tomatoe and a side of veggies. I snack on fruit and trail mix. I only drink water with the exception of a chug of OJ once and a little left over Gatorade once. But I'm not starving myself by any means and I think that's really important.
The temptations are still everywhere. Even riding by a McDonalds with a sign that says "$1 sausage biscuits!". I'd usually be all over that. But not this time. Not any time anymore.
I'm getting lots of sponsorship which is great!!!! And I'm so appreciative. Here's a list of who is helping me out....

I think I may have lost track of sponsors. When I did the math in my head the other day it added up different. So if I forgot your initials please let me know.
I also want to give a special shout out to Shelley Berman and Will Berson. And $235 donated from Tina and other Wiki'd Women. Thank you so much.
Again even if you sponsored one cent a pound you can see how it's adding up. Cory MacDonald also has Choroideremia and is trying to lose 40 lbs by September and he has a couple of sponsors too. It's not too late to join in!!
I celebrated last night by eating half of a Lou Malnati's deep dish pepperoni pizza. It was awesome. I had a Kit Kat bar too.
Then today I weighed myself with a brand new digital scale. I stripped naked (you're welcome) and stepped on. 266.8 lbs!! It was less than I thought it would be but I just moved into a new place monday and maybe lost a couple that day.
My girlfriend, Deborah, and I went food shopping and it was hard for me. I've eaten poorly my whole life. And change is scary. But it's gotta be done.
I ran an errand this morning before I ate anything and thought "Oh I'll be by Dunkin' Donuts. I'll get a breakfast sandwich. " Then I realized I can't. It's gonna take some time and effort to switch my thinking around.
I'm not going to miss being fat but I am going to miss everything that made me fat.
I had some chicken for lunch and having a turkey pattie for dinner. (No bread).
I'm trying to stay clear as much as possible if not completely from sweets, breads, carbs, etc.
It's gonna be hard and scary but with your love and support I can do it.
I know some people have stated they are unable to sponsor me due to funds. I just want people to know that nothing is too small. Even .10 cents / pound. If I lose 60 lbs in a years time then that's $6.00!! I think donating $6.00 is less scary than trying to cure us in one donation. AND ITS DEDUCTIBLE!!! You'll get it back. So mull it over. You can jump in anytime.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING AND FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!
mention the weight loss for me when asked who you are donating for.
