Claw marks on the wagon

First I want to thank you guys for your supportive comments yesterday. My readers, lurkers or not are so supportive. I really feel like am friends with you all.

The claw marks I spoke of are from me trying to get back on the wagon. I will say that I wrote everything down yesterday. I also did great till I got home. Most of the bad stuff has been removed from the house. BUT... I ordered a taco pizza for dinner last night. Genius! Oh and before that I had a whole bunch of the french's dried onion things you put on top of green bean casserole. Also some marshmallows. Basically anything in sight. I was not even that hungry. Thank goodness Carrie stopped me at three slices. I was ready to dig in for more. Tonight the pizza goes in the trash.

So 62 points later I was done! Hole crap 62 points? yep 62! It is what it is. At least I wrote it all down.

So today is a new day. Starting off with water rather than Diet Coke. I am sure some of you understand what a undertaking that is all by itself. I am enjoying some mixed fruit for breakfast. I have to tell you that I really enjoy the frozen fruit for a snack or breakfast. Let face it. I did not get to 400lbs on fruit it would take an act of god to over do it on fruit. Plus it is wildly nutritious. See:

I pick this up at Sam's club in a big bag for about 8.50 for a 6 lb bag and it lasts just about a week. Like I said it is a really good evening snack. ( I know I know, this is coming from the guy who indulged on chips and dip 2 nights ago)

So there you have it. I am going to at least post a recap of my previous day so you guys can give me the swift kick in the butt that I need.

I almost forgot to share this. That would be my boy on the gong!

I am a new "lurker" but I wanted to say - Wow! You have really lost some weight!! I will be reading more of your blog and some of the old entries so I can follow your success. And you will be successful! Don't beat yourself up so much. Speaking from experience, if you had a small gain in the last few months, that is a victory in itself. Hang in there!

Hey Matt..new to your blog via SuperDave's.

First off, congratulations on the amazing weight loss so far! You must have been doing a bunch of stuff really right to have accomplished that.

So, as you pull yourself up onto the wagon again, try to remember what those things were. Sounds like a good idea - the fruit in the morning. I'm a big fan of morning smoothies. Sounds like your body is withdrawing from a junk food overload. Hang in there, it will pass soon.

What's your exercise plan? I know that is one of the biggest factors for me in whether I lose or not.

I wish you all the best in the coming day/week/month, and look forward to reading about your successes.
