Let's start with a recap of yesterday per usual.
For breakfast I had a bowl of weight watchers cereal, then I snacked, and snacked, and snacked some more (borderline binged). Barbecue corn chips, sour scream and onion potato chips, wheat thins, rice crisps and butter cookies, throughout the day. For dinner I had two fried pink salmon pattie sandwiches (with mustard), and two hash brown patties (with entirely too much ketchup). I consumed a grand total of 3,155 calories (cut it pretty close this time).
I was really concerned that my eating from this past weekend might effect today's weigh-in, I took in just an insane amount of sodium on both days, and had about a ton of sugar, all while staying below my default calorie goal of 3,680. So how did today's weigh-in go? Quite well. I'm actually blown away, I had to double check to be sure.
Last week I weighted 514 pounds, this week..... 506! Down 7 pounds, I'm quite shocked by the results, I lost more last week than I did during boot camp week. This puts me a lot closer to dropping out of the 500s than I anticipated.
Even with this weeks great weigh-in, I'm continuing on with my plan to eat between 1200-1500 calories, I originally made these plans because I figured I'd have a hard time exiting the 500s by May, but now that possibility seems a lot more likely, still the plan remains. This new calorie goal will be in effect for the next 3 weeks, minimum, including the weekends.
This week I have quite a few appointments, I have to schedule another appointment with my general care doctor, I see my dermatologist tomorrow, I have therapy Wednesday, vision work Friday and today I'm meeting with my case manager to go over some things. So busy week in terms of appointments, and I just realized I need to schedule an appointment to get my knees looked at. This afternoon I'm going walking with my buddy again at the park.
Something interesting happened earlier I got a call from Meijer's (US retail store chain, à la Wal-mart) they are hiring in all positions and had my application on file from when I was applying like crazy at the beginning of the year. He asked me if I'd be interested and I said yes, and I have to call him back for a phone interview later today. My mom is in high protest, and I don't know what my thought process was or is, I just feel like another employment opportunity has fallen in my lap and maybe I should take it. The fact remains however that I'm still a big guy, still have social anxiety and plantar fasciitis they haven't gone away. The truth is I likely won't call him back, I'd be a fool to jump back into the same situation I was. I just wish I could understand why I'm even considering it.
