Week One of Detox

... and it's going well, not just because I dropped 3 pounds (that was simply a side effect) but its doing what I intended for it to do: force me to think about everything I eat. It's really odd, but cutting out an entire food group (refined carbs) really got me thinking about all the crap I randomly eat without even thinking about it, and how much crap it really is. A couple of days ago i had the classic carb withdrawl headaches, but now i'm past them, and the meals are seeming really filling. I remember feeling this way the last time I did this.

I have to admit though, I'm a bit unclear what I'm going to do this Sunday, when we have a pile of people over to watch Indycar racing, (especially since I traditionally make whole wheat lemon-blueberry pancakes for breakfast for the hardcore race fans who arrive early to watch the Grand Prix of Monaco with us). I think I'll just have to take a day off from it. That's life, and if you can't live life (albeit a carefully planned one), you might as well check out now.

Granted, those blueberry pancakes will follow a massive traditional bike ride.

Anyway, numbers: 241, fat % at 48. It's good to be back following something, but it's better to have numbers that reflect it.

Your blog is hysterical!

Let's see... your first recorded weight when you started blogging was 230.6 pounds. That was December 28, 2005.

Nearly 3 1/2 years later and you're 10.4 pounds heavier!

Um, yeah...

I apologise for my earlier comment. I was reading the first page of your blog from the top, rather than from the first entry at the bottom.

I see you actually started at 234 pounds, bringing your net gain over 3 1/2 years to only 7 pounds.

Whoo-hoo! You go girl!

This, my friends, is why I have comment moderation. I went ahead and published these, because its so funny how people can take things out of context.

Especially people who don't have the balls to post with so much as even a pseudonym. Just good ol "anonymous."

If anonymous cared to read things, s/he'd note that I was cruising along just fine for a few years, and hit a bad stretch of major stress over the past winter, where I gained the 25 or so pounds back.

But that's not what haters are about. They're more about laughing about people's failures rather learning from them, and their own.

WhatEVER. There will always be people who laugh at the fact that some people have missteps, they trip, they fall, but that's not what this blog is about. I could have said, back in January, "Well, that's it. I'm giving up." But I didn't, because this blog is called This Time For Sure. That doesn't mean a magic bullet. Most people I've seen (especially bloggers) who had 50 more more pounds to lose have had setbacks. It's all part of the journey. Andthere are lessons to be learned in them.

Among them, is that no matter what you do, there will still be spineless haters, haters who are afraid to use their names.

i check into your site occasionally - forgot where i followed the link from. love how anonymous, who has nothing to offer up, can be so invested to comment and follow your site... some people have way too much time on their hands. hang in there with your detox. i start one when i get back from weekend trip. good luck this weekend - it's frustrating how everytime you get started on something that has a timeline to it - some kind of social eating situation happens (at least it does for me) sometimes just negotating it over with myself that "pancake breakfast" will happen again and that i am not short changing myself if i skip this one helps me get through it.
