Plateau

I've been faithful on my diet for 22 days and have lost about 10 pounds. I have not gone over the 1500 calorie mark more than 3 or 4 days and for sure haven't crossed the 2000 barrier. The scale hasn't moved in 5 days and I'm a little frustrated. I have added more days to the treadmill and will now add a simple regiment of lifting weights. I really haven't had the desire to trash my diet, although Sunday was tough because I wasn't feeling all the well. When I am under the weather I am more likely to eat comfort foods.

On a side note my wife is pulling pictures for my 40th birthday. Pictures are really awesome. For many people they bring back good memories. It was interesting reading some of the posts in my yearbook from a few girls. As an adult I read the post from the Prom queen where she
called me a cute guy and that she hoped I would REALLY(underlined) call her during the Summer....phone number attached. I must have been dating someone solidly at the time to not notice that. I picked up the phone and got ready to call Margie M. and decided not to with my wife standing there. Besides, she's probably married too and she probably didn't mean that she wanted to go out on a date. She was probably just curious about the Baptist kid at a Catholic high school.

If you are a reader feel free to invite yourself to my 40th on the 18th!

That's nice your wife is putting together some pics for the event! Don't get too down on the diet - the first weight that comes off is usually excess water, so now you're going to start losing the fat. It takes longer and need more discipline.

(hope your wife doesn't read your blog)

P.S. forget the diet, I now like fat men, especially since I am pushing 350.

You can't quit now, you know. Girls would die to lose 10 pounds in two weeks. It's kinda sickening.
