And we now resume our regularly scheduled blogging.

Well where should I begin. I guess I should have let you guys know I would be away for a week or so. I left for a camping trip last week and returned this Saturday. So now that we have that out of the way lets discuss first my weight gain....

I gained 2.2 lbs last week bringing me to 320. I expected as much and thought there was a shot I would loss while camping. Well I was wrong. I am figuring at best to stay at 320 and more than likely I will add another pound or three. I would like to tell you all this stuff went wrong, but really it was just a matter of focus and wanting to enjoy all the things I normally enjoy while camping. You see this is when we get up and fish from 6:30 to 8:00 or so and then head into town for breakfast. I you happen to live in a small town or have had breakfast at a small town restaurant you probably already know that they do not skimp on portions and then you have a choice of toast or biscuits and gravy. Lucky for my waistline I only chose B & G one day. So then the rest of the day is a hodge podge of what you can find. We did eat more fruit and less chips. We did drink more water and less soda. However while I thought my body would be working harder to keep cool with the heat and stuff I failed to remember the dehydration that sets in while your camping. You just cannot drink enough water. We did manage to eat some crawfish while we were down there. Thats right we caught 20 or so crawfish by hand, boiled em up and ate em. Gotta love crawfish.

So I am back on the wagon today and training for the 5k shall commence next week. For lunch today it is my normal salad. I am enjoying yogurt and granola for breakfast and think that grilled chicken will be our dinner choice.

I am glad to be back and want to thank all of you for your support!

Can't be perfect all the time. Camping would do me in too I believe. All I do when camping is eat.

I guess that it would come out eventually, so now is as good as time as any.

My name is John, and I had a Southern Grandmother. Ergo, I had a mother who was taught to cook by a Southern Lady. Do you think that I got up to around 400 lbs w/o the help of biscuits & gravy, fried chicken, fried taters, and grits? Even now, living in rural Oregon. The best place in town to go for breakfast is famous for their platter o' biscuits as big as a cats' head and several generous ladles of creamy sausage gravy.

Needless to say, I avoid that place like an alcoholic working on his 2 week chip avoids the pub.

Remember... you are not on a diet. You are re-educating yourself on eating well. Everything in moderation.
