Back On Track

I've dropped most of the Yom Tov weight gain and seem to be back on track. It seems that unless I have the food out in front of me, just sitting there, I'm OK. I have to just train myself to be better at resisting food that is just sitting in front of me. IOW, I can't use snacking as a social option.

The Damage of Yom Tov

Three and a half pounds.

Weigh In: The Double Fast Edition

Well, I was hoping that with two fasts in the last seven days, I would take off some weight!

Fasting, of course, doesn't really help you to lose weight... after all, most of the loss is water and you eat again afterwards anyway. But I was pretty good during the week, and so, I was hoping that I would at least lose the 1.5 pounds that I put back on last week.

As it turns out, I lost four (4!!!) pounds this past week. Woo-hoo! Down to 222.5. During my previous weight loss, I never lost more than 3.4 pounds in a week (aside from the first week when I lost six).

Now let's see how I do after two weeks of Yom Tov. :)

I Had A Bad Week...

Sunday... 30th anniversary reunion of a college organization
Monday... Family Bar Mitzvah
Tuesday & Wednesday... Somewhat good
Thursday & Friday... Yom Tov with food, challah, honey and lots of other bad stuff
Shabbos... more of the same

Net result: a pound and a half regained.

CLARIFICATION: Eeees's challah is good. I did not mean to imply that her challah is bad, but rather that I had a lot of that and other bad (read: fattening) things.

Now, hopefully, Eeees will let me live long enough to lose the rest of the weight. :)

Guilty Pleasure #1

Since nobody asked, I'm going to give you all some tips and hints. The type of tip that I'm going to be providing today is snack food (aka guilty pleasure). From time to time, I'll share some of the snack food that helps me get through the day.

First up... Glenny's Soy Crisps.

Now, these soy chips come in various flavors, including Barbeque, Apple Cinnomon, Lightly Salted, Salt & Pepper, White Cheddar, Onion & Garlic and about a half dozen others. Personally, I only eat the BBQ... the rest (aside from the cheese flavors) are flavors that I wouldn't want in a chip anyway.

The good side is that the BBQ chips taste good and for a 1.3 ounce bag, you only use up about 2 points. They make a decent snack food when you have that salt/BBQ craving.

The bad side is that they can be expensive (.99-1.39 for a bag) they aren't potato chips... and you're not going to be fooled by them. But, nonetheless, they still make a decent snack food and will, to a large degree (but not completely) hold off that potato chip craving.
