Day 85 Weigh Day and It Rears Its Ugly Head - Hot 100 Update

It is weigh day baby!! And here is the good news for today. I am down 8 more pounds to 247 and for those scoring at home, well that equals 50 pounds lost!!!!! It is mind numbing to imagine that in less than three months, I have dropped 50 pounds. I would have never thought I would be able to do that, not in a million years. So cheers After Journey Shane. Well done sir.

So true to form, I have to follow the good new with some what I would say is maybe bad news, but a weird kind of bad. I am stressed, stressed, stressed over the LSAT. I was cruising along today, eating was on course. Then after supper, I had a mini melt down of sorts. I am not sure if a) eating yogurt, celery and peanut butter, 5 turkey pepperonis, and a fiber bar and b) I am only a few calories over the 1800 limit I have set is really considered a mini melt down. Now the fact it is emotional eating should be a point for concern, but I am done for the night and the damage, while up front and center on my radar, is minimal. I think it is just a matter of how do I handle the days after this.

I made a discovery tonight. Kathy can cook a dish called ratatouille and it is yummy!! We had turkey brats with it for a great supper, followed by my mini melt down. After that, I went into war preparation mode. I packed the ziplock back I am allowed to bring to the LSAT with the stuff I am allowed to bring, then printed off my ticket I have to bring to the test, then the most important part, I loaded my MP3 with my 'get pumped' music to listen to on the way up to get myself in battle mode before the test. I am ready and raring to get this test taken, and am praying to God for wisdom and courage. Think of me tomorrow guys.

And for the Hot 100 update: I am on goal all the way around! My vegetable intake, thru the roof!! I have had salads full of veggies 4 days this week, I had ratatouille for supper tonight, I have celery and peanut butter every night. I have not had any white bread per my amended bread goal, in fact the only bread I have ever is the pita bread I have for my lunch and it is flax seed, whole wheat and I want to say barley or something. I did knock my 5k down to 43 minutes 30 seconds last week and am hoping to knock it down again this week. And as mentioned above, I am down to 247 lbs now! So Hot 100 has been great to me so far!! Come on Hotties, let's rock these last 83 days.

  6. Congrats on the 50 pounds loss! What a milestone! That's amazing! And good luck on on the LSAT! I'm sure you're going to do amazingly! As for the emotional eating...you SHOULD think about it and come up with a constructive plan for similar, future issues. But your eating really wasn't bad at all, in terms of "damage" done to the diet. So don't stay awake tonight feeling bad. Get some sleep, rest up well, get a good breakfast tomorrow, and you're going to do GREAT!!!

  11. Just said a little prayer for you- I imagine you will be leaving soon for the test. I always hoped we'd have a lawyer in our family, but there isn't one heehee. Congrats on that amazing weight loss!

  12. Great job on your goals and that weight loss!! I also think that when I overeat or binge, even if it is healthy food, it is something I need to address and pay attention to. And lately I have been doing it too much!

  13. I sent up a prayer for you this morning when I woke up. Good luck on the LSAT.

    Fifty pounds!! What a milestone! Congrats, Buddy! And don't worry about the emotional eating. If LSAT isn't a reason to go a little crazy, there isn't one.

    Keep on rockin!!
