I'm holding steady at 282. I found out today that a buddy of mine is 4 pounds less then me today. I got him hooked on Atlins WOE a few years ago. My mindset now is "IT'S ON!!!!" Needless to say I'll be drinking the water tonight.

Our electric bill showed up today. 200 freakin dollars! That pissed me off! I turned off the AC and have been shuting lights off behind the kids since I got home. I think that my AC unit is old and too small for this family of 4. I think a bigger unit would cool this house alot faster. I'm glad that summer is almost over!

I forgeting something...I'll remember later and then post it.

Hope you are having a great day!

Take care,
Phil

Good morning!

Last night, just before bed my eye started feeling kind of funny. I went to the bathroom to look at my eye and it was all swollen. My wife thinks it's a stye. I woke this morning and my eye socket looked like I had a black eye with out the black. So I took a day of vacation and will be going to the doctor later today to get some drugs. The worst thing is that I can't shoot my bow cause my eye is swallen.

In other news...279.6 this morning. How sweet is that?

Take care y'all!
Phil

I'm grillin' steak for supper.

I could of been going to the Hawkeye game tonight. A guy at work had tickets and wasn't able to go. I'm glad I didn't buy them. My wife is doing a photo shoot at a wedding today.

Take care,
Phil

Good morning!

278.6 this morning.

Gotta go check college football scores. All that really matter is that the Hawkeyes won.

Take care,

You know, it's only about 9 lbs to go to get to 269?? You can do that ! Piece of cake (hmmm , bad choice of food).

Hey!

I was running late this morning so I didn't weigh. I weighed after work and was 282...which is nomal this late in the day. Eating has been clean today so I figure I'll still be in the 270's tomorrow morning. I did see somr fudge at work and didn't really have to fight off urges to try some cause, well, it looked like crap and I was busy.

Supper tonight will be 2 cheese burgers and some green peas.

It was much cooler today and we had high winds from the North so it felt pretty cool out side. All I could think of today was deer hunting and chilli! Any one know if there is such a thing low carb chilli beans, cause Lord knows I'm a craving a big bowl of thick chilli!

I think I am going through my hunting clothes tonight to get things orginized and ready for October 1st. I'm ready to just sit in the timber and watch things!

Hope you had a great day!
Take care,
Phil

Isn't it a blessing that fudge can resemble square crap?? I'm lucky, it gives me killer heartburn, so i don't even attempt it anymore.

CHERI'S CREAMY SOUTHWESTERN TACO SOUP
1 pound ground beef
2 3/4 ounces onion, chopped, 1/2 cup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 10-ounce cans Ro-tel tomatoes, undrained (tomatoes with green chilies)
2 cans beef broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons salt, or to taste

In a large soup pot, brown the ground beef with the onion and garlic; drain. Add the
spices and cook a couple minutes. Drop the cream cheese in bits into the meat. With the
back of a big spoon, smash it into the meat until no bits of white remain. Stir in
remaining ingredients and heat through.


ENJOY!!

Hello!
Long time no talkie. I have been going non stop. Anyway, I wanted to check in before bed.

I'm still pluggin' along. My weight today was 280 on the nose. Not sure why but I'm not worried about it. I'm eating clean. I had blood work done today at work. The company wanted to pay for anyone who wanted to have it done, and I'm all about free! We got these little print outs with all kinds of stuff on it. According to them I am 67 pounds over weight. I guess their little computer thinks I need to weigh 218. I should be getting a print out soon with my lab results. It'll be good to get that info.

My job this last week has been AWESOME. I've been doing alot of CNC work and ordering tools for a new job. I dig it.

Alright. I'm beat. Gotta go to bed. Sorry I haven't been around. Oh, yeah. One more thing. My Mother ask me today how much weight I have lost. That made my day. That was the first one! That means there is more to come and with that comes major motivation!!!

Hope you all are doing well!

Take care,
Phil

I wondered what had been going on with you. Great job on keeping that scale where it needs to be. Can't wait to hear the good news on your blood work. If my DH weighs what all the charts tell him, he would be skin and bones. I'm glad his doctor is sensible about his weight.

Nothing like people recognizing that you have lost weight!! I kinda miss those days. Every now and then I will bump into someone who hasn't seen me and get the WOW's but they are getting fewer and far between. That's OK...I know I look sooo much better....need to work on that inner voice more anyway.

That's great Phil. It's nice when someone notices, even if it's mom. And God knows mom's are critical. You must have felt great! And yea on you for ordering new tools, that's like us women getting more shoes and purses!! ~~Heaven~~
