7/4/2016 - Blast from the Past - DAY 38

Greetings all,

I am back from vacation and ready to roll……..right? Happy 4th of July for those who celebrate it! I had 6 post for 8/7/2010. I will only post 3 of them since some were just response of no great importance. Your next installment of “Blast from the Past”:

Original Stardate 8/7/2010:
I got another good night of rest. I guess the Melatonin I have been taking must have helped. My spirits are soaring once again. No craving for carbs, no cheats, and no tummy troubles. I had another drop in weight today.

It’s about noon as I type this entry. I am a little hungry at this time and will eat some fatty brisket after I posted this entry into my Journal. I have cooked breakfast for (DW) earlier this morning: hash browns, scrambled eggs and brown and serve sausage. 
I have my sister’s wedding to go to a little later today. She will have BBQ catered. I guess if I am hungry at that time I will find what is available that is (ZC) and eat.

So far fatty beef brisket has keep me satisfied longer than any other source of protein that I have tried. I am getting a little tired of the taste but oh well. I still have a day supply left unless (DW) does not want the leaner portion. 

Tomorrow my best friend is supposed to come over to help me install a new over the range microwave oven in my kitchen. I have already began to defrost two big juicy Rib eyes. (DW) will be at work during that time. She is not a big steak fan anyway.
Time to eat and get ready for the wedding.

Cheers

Good question Charles, I only speak for myself. I have noticed that when I eat later at night I tend to stall or gain. If I feel a little hungry at night I simply do not eat especially right before I go to sleep. The only exception that I may make is on the weekends when I start my day much later in the day. That can be anywhere from 3-5 hours. Then, I may eat later than on a work week. I will also stay up much later on weekend nights than during a work week. I have also found out for myself that if I eat late I won’t be able to sleep until much later. 

So, I try to experiment and note with how my body reacts to what I eat, the time I eat and the rest I get. I expect that as I get closer to what should be my ideal weight, the way I eat and times may change. I will always try to adjust as necessary to keep up with the changes. That’s the beauty of journalism and taking notes.

Just living the Dream. My hunger is way down. The periods are longer than ever before. 

Yesterday while I was helping my sister, my other sister was also there and offered me some wine. I told her that I was not drinking alcohol at this time. She was drinking some Chardonnay. I took a small sip and could actually taste the sweetness of the wine. In the past this kind of wine did not taste sweet to me at all. Wow what a change.

We did not end up going to the reception after the weeding. We ended up driving back to The Woodlands and went to Chili‘s to eat. I had the smoke house bacon burger. I only ate the beef, cheese and bacon. I hope there is no repercussions tomorrow. 

I ran out of fatty beef brisket today. Tomorrow I will eat a big fat Rib eye. I will also shop for fatty beef ribs at HEB. They have a good selection in small packs for under $2.00 lb. I will stock up for at least three days’ worth and see how this affects my weight loss. I just love fatty beef ribs!

Observation:
First of all I mention “Melatonin”……..YUKKKKKK!!!!!!!! I really don’t remember taking it at all let alone for that long. I remember thinking about taking it, but not actually taking it. Hmm……. It must be side effects from the Melatonin. Weight DROP…..ooohhh yeah baby!!! 

The Fatty Beef Brisket…….well that was a staple for me for a long time. As of late I have lost the taste for it. I dunno why. It really helped me for a long time. It was my “go to food” that help me oh so much. 

So at this time I am at Day 38. I have lost weight and went to some trials. At this point in time I still cooked my (DW)’s breakfast that consisted of some carbs. So I am facing challenges that could be a game changer for lots of folks out there. I have to say that I am proud that this Rookie stuck to his guns and did not fold. He stayed strong and continued down the path he started. 

I answered a question from Charles. I did notice if I ate late it affected my weight loss. I experimented and found it to be true. I mention that writing this Journal was a great way to reflect on how my new way of eating was effecting me. No truer words were ever spoken……….errr I mean written!

At this time my body is changing in the way I feel hunger. The periods seem to be longer between meals. 

I took a sip of wine and noticed the sweetness of it. So my taste buds are changing. I noticed that a lot as time went on. I can even taste the sweetness of water sometimes. 

I went out to eat and ate like a Zero Carb Pro!!! I probably should have ate only the beef patty and bacon and left the cheese alone. Dairy can be funny on Zero Carb when trying to lose weight. I tell everyone to stay away from it at the start of this Lifestyle change is weight loss is one of their goals. 

Have a wonderful Zero Carb Day! Live Long, Stay Strong and Always Battle On!!!

(ZC)er Stay True



Cheers,

Dave
