Toronto and England

Okay the diet is sorta continuing.

Well, I am eating less then I would if I was not trying to diet, but I am not completely on the diet.

Lets see, at the airport in Toronto I pigged out before I got on the flight. I needed the three shots of scotch, and the cookies (I swear). I also had a swarma in pita, but I skipped on the Chumos, and did not get a Laffa which is an improvement on Friday. I also stuffed it with veggies and no fried ones.

Today I ate a big shabbat lunch, but I did not each as much chicken and had a lot more salad. I was at a friends house in Golder Green and D--mn she can cook. it was really really good food. I have some friends around the world that I love spending shabbat with as I can eat really well, but I really need to lose this weight.

I am not trusting of other scales, and the thing about losing weight is that you need to be able to trust your scale, and since I split time between 3-4 of them, it ain't easy.

On the whole I am eating less, and more healthy. I am pigging out on this trip to London, on English Asparagus, and not chocolate, (only 3 squares since I landed). I also have not finished my bag of bears, me addicted to bears, of the soft chewy type.

What am I trying to say. I am doing better, but I got a long way to go. I think that I need to start to count points for this to work. I wonder if someone makes a point counter for a BlackBerry. Got to look into that.

I am going to drop these 20 pounds and my reward I have decided is I will fly to Hong Kong and get a new wardrobe. (Expensive reward). Lets see if I make this work.

It is nice to be getting things done.

the diet continues

Okay, the diet is continuing.

After a horrible Shabbat where there was way to much food around and I could not stop eating, I have still lost weight I am down to 240. I think Sunday is the best day to weigh in, but like next week I will be on the road so I will not be able to do so.

The key I think to losing weight is to stock only good foods in the house and to get rid of the wasted calories. I can happily eat 3-4 puff pastries for breakfast, but I can also have a bowl of cereal and Yogurt, and the second option is good for me.

I am still in the big stomach stage of the diet and that means that I am hungry for lots of food, and I hate this stage, it is the hardest, assuming I can get through it, my stomach will shrink and the diet will get easier.

This week it also going to get harder. I am traveling the Canada, and I am not sure what I am going to be able to eat their that will work. I have to stock the kitchen with decent food that I can eat and still maintain if not lose weight.

I am not yet doing a formal point count, I am really starting with focusing on healthy food.

So back to my cherry tomato's and work.

Okay it is time and I am starting a new diet.

The thing is Weight Watchers is what has worked for me in the past, but I do not think I can make meetings, so what I am doing is weighing in each week, and then I will post my weight to the internet, right here. So my weight today is 244.4 pounds, which by the way is the most I have weighed in 2-3 years. I want to get back to 220.

The plan is simple, first off eat better, that means taking food with me when I travel, stocking the kitchens where I live better and I want to start to work out more.

Now things have gotten easier for Iris and me in Israel where I spend a lot of time, Fiber is now reported on products, and there are a lot more friendly products in Israel now.

Now off to my yogurts that taste like sawdust (I am sure that is an ingredient, and my soy milk that actually tastes nice and away I go).

Good luck to me.
