Still Huge…But!!! A “Bite Me” Diet Update

Well after three weeks on the “Bite Me” Diet I am still enormous…but…not quite as enormous as I was. I’ve lost 12 pounds so far bringing me to 278 lbs even. So 78 pounds to go.

Some lessens I have learned so far:

1. It is possible to eat at fast food restaurants without getting fast food. All you have to do is research a little. I have eaten at Potbelly’s, Wendy’s and Chipotle and have managed to stay within the calorie guidelines I have set for myself.

2. It’s not good for you to eat at Fast Food places all the time because you rarely get a balanced meal…usually heavy on either carbs, protein or both…not enough fiber or vegetables. So I have to reduce the number of meals at fast food places and cook at home more!

3. The possibility of public failure is an ever present consideration when I decide what to eat. In the past when I have dieted I have always managed to find an excuse for eating that one meal off the plan ; justifying it using one lame rationale or another. I still do that, but the backstop has been to ask myself how I am going to explain my failure to all those that know I have been dieting. That has kept me on the straight and narrow. Even the last two days, home sick, when I would normally not worry about what I was eating it became a consideration…and I managed to stay within the guidelines I set.

4. You start to feel better almost immediately. Even though I have lost a relatively small amount of weight so far, I am definitely feeling better…not as winded walking up stairs, even the other worldly noises I usually make when pulling myself up out of a chair have lessened!!

All for now!
