I want to keep a journal here for the world (at least the wackbag world) to see. I am sure there will be ball busting, but also lots of support. I welcome all feedback, I have pretty thick skin and can take it, so pile on.

I plan on posting everyday and pics every now and again, hopefully showing progress....unless of course the wb mods do not want me to use wb as my personal blog, but here it goes.

Day 1

I have battled my weight my entire adult life. No big deal, very happy and confident. Married to a beautiful woman (thin woman) 4 great little kids, good job, lots of friends. I am 37 and want to see my kids grow up. I am a sales rep, so I eat out with customers every day.

I go to the gym every day, but some work outs are better than others. Today was OK. Did about 40 minutes of cardio, lifted a bit back and bi's. Had a healthy breakfast (2 whole wheat waffles), lunch (turkey reuben, no dressing on whole wheat) ...then I snapped, saw a new fast food joint and did not know what I wanted, so I got.....you ready

small cheeseburger
hot dog with mustard and kraut
pastrami melt
small fries...... I shit you not.

Stuffed like a pig, I did not snack the rest of the day.

Wife made hot dogs for dinner

2 dogs
a few fries
3 onion rings.

I feel disgusting and I am sick of feeling this way. Fucking hate it.
This is my confessional. I am now embarassed.
I will never feel this way again.

dude, that sounds so fuckin yummy right now.

i would love to chow on a dog... and its 1133 at night.

----

btw, get it all off your chest... it will help, especially if you catalog everything you eat and get feedback from it.

i too could stand to loose more than a couple... but i like healthy food, so my biggest problem is exercise. always seems like its last priority anymore. i love physical activity, i just dont make time for it (gotta post here, so ya know :) )

I dont know if you were just born to gain weight... but.

Im thin always have been....Unless i start eating shit.


My advice is simple.

No snacks , Its all garbage.... I eat carrots or celery ororanges, if i feel peckish at night.

I absolutley will not eat anything fried... (exception the rare chicken wings).

Fast food is fat food... NO

I only eat whole foods from earth... no man made shit...

I eat like a horse and stay thin.. You are what you eat.

Change your eating habits and you will lose weight... If my girl made hot dogs for dinner i would take her on a boat ride.

Dont get me wrong... I love Burger kind, hot dogs,cheessteaks,soda is my weakness........ but you just cant put that shit in your body man.

I sample all of the above every now and again... It just cant be a lifestyle...

I got to that point in August. Went on Atkins - per doctor's instructions, and have lost 75+ lbs since then.

The biggest help with sticking to it has been the fact my friends and clients can know what I am doing and can see the results, so it becomes a topic of conversation.

Besides feeling better, I feel like everyone else has an investment in me succeeding through their compliments and well wishes. It's like getting cheered on during a game.

I know how hard it is to eat properly when you're on the road all day long, but pretty soon you hit your stride and figure out ways to eat what works for you. You're killing yourself with starch and processed carbs.

Try to switch what you can. If you can't cut bread out, at least go for the whole grain stuff. Have the burger or hot dog, but leave the bun. Don't get the fries, or at least try to substitute a salad as often as possible.

The other thing I do, is when I get a craving for something really crappy, I tell myself that I'll have it for the NEXT meal. I then go and eat my normal food for the current meal and the fact that I'm satisfied usually kills the craving.

This is a very great point... One thing I realized about addiction , alcohol, food or cigarettes have on thing in common. a little brainwashed voice in your head saying i need this.

eating curbs drinking for me.... when i get done work and i hear my mind say, " man i would love some beers" I immediately eat get stuffed... and by filling one craving i eleviate the feeling of wanting the beers... mostly because my body is in need of nourishment, but my minds trying to trick it into beer.

So when you want that shit food... go eat somewhere good fast and like he said it should fade.

P.S he also made one absolute point i forgot... Stop eating bread.

I eat it occasionally cause i can... but that shit and soda to me is death. Enriched wheat flour is in all breads and many other things... it is the devil.

one of the reason you crave beers is because of all the carbs in the beer..

And there is an old saying to stay thin:..eat like a king in the morning, a merchant at noon, and a pauper in the evening.

I don't eat right and I admit that. Seriously though. That is enough food to last me almost 2 days. Even though I eat like shit the one thing that keeps me from being a total waste of space is just stopping when I get full.

My mom was a compulsive over eater so I understand your pain but you just gotta stop when you get full.

Yup, carbs and high fructose are the worst!

I don't even like soda, so I am fine there. I just like a cold glass of water, or an iced tea during the day.

I just need to force my self to do sit-ups in the morning. I drive all day long, so my lower abdomen never gets any work out. My upper body and legs do, when I'm out on a job site and like I said before... I like natural/healthy food any way, so the stuff I eat isn't the problem, it's the lack of mid-body exercise.

I have grape-nuts and eggs (usually just the whites, unless I'm making my sinful snack of runny egg on eggo)

For lunch I'll get a salad, soup or a some sortta wrap, depending on what's close. I usually snack on a mixed-nut box, from Sam's Club (almonds, cashews, pecans, etc), through out the day, so I am not "starved" when I sit down.

I know the rice in the evening probably isn't the best...

Along with beer... I do like that low carb Ultra though... and my brain always says "get a beer", just like GD's :)

I just need to do some f-in sit-ups in the morning before work.

I have the same food issues. I love to eat, and the more unhealthy the more I love it & crave it. Nutrisystem has helped, but I blow it on the weekends. I need to get to the gym, but find myself staying late, and then I can't get to the gym before it closes. (Note to self: find the Curves closest to my office.)

I have hit a plateau, and need to kick things up ASAP.

Well, I guess we can call this the first day of the rest of my life. This thread actually helped keep me in line today. A blog is one thing, but its most friends and family that read those stupid things. This is much more real. I see that just by the responses I got yesterday.

Well this was my day.

7:00 AM - One whole grain waffle with a hald teaspoon of fake butter and one low fat yogurt.


Hit the gym and did about 50 minutes of cardio. Heart rate was about 140 for at least 40 minutes.

10 AM after gym I had egg whites on whole wheat with a slice of turkey


1 PM - Grilled buffalo chicken (bleu cheese dressing, but only half the cup) and a bowl of chicken noodle soup.

4 PM - cup of black bean soup from Panera w/ slice of whole grain

My wife made chilli with ground turkey breast, but I am not hungry right, so I will have a small amount in about a half an hour.


Probably a little too much bread, even though they are whole grains. I need to improve that.


Bowling tonight, that will be tough, need to avoid beer and snacky type food. I guess that turkey chilli is important so I won't be hungry.


Thanks for reading.

Fuckin' starvin'.....
Earl????

You should pick a date and get a couple of people to do this along with you for a little suppport. I just got engaged and need to drop some weight before september.

Call it the Heathy-Whackbager. a few recipies, support, and someone else to go thru it with ya. To make it interesting, i'll kick in $50 to a pool to the first Bagger who participates and makes the predertimined weight loss. Spring is alomst here and now would be a perfect time to get fit so your not "that guy" at the beach this summer. Just a thought.

I went to the Mets-Cardinals spring training game today with my father and a few of his friends. They have this ritual of chowing down on hot dogs, beer and peanuts.

Had ONE hot dog, but didn't eat the bun, the peanuts were fine, and avoided the beer.

The key is learning how to function in a given environment without feeling deprived.

No - Not reward sex, just her fucking period was finally over sex. Not even that good to be honest. Sex is the one thing that I do not have a problem with here. She is very good to me.

I am a fat guy, but a fat guy with lots of confidence, so I have never really had a problem with that end.

Hey Dopey Opie, you rule for doing this here! Give this a try for a start. Avoid foods made from processed flour for a week. No bread, no pasta, etc. While we're on the subject, no white rice or white potatoes either. These foods create cravings almost immediately after your body burns up the initial "energy" they create. Avoid sugar as well.

Keep your carb intake to natural stuff only - fruits, vegetables, nuts and beans - but don't make even the natural carbs your primary food source.

Use protein as the main portion of each meal. Lean meat, fish lowfat cheese, yogurt, eggs etc.

Protein will keep you full longer, it won't create cravings the way carbs will, and it will rebuild the muscles that you break down in the gym.

I shoot for around 80-100 grams of protein per day. No matter what I eat, I make sure at least 2/3 of the meal consists of protein, and I eat it that way from my plate.

There was a show called the Truth about Food on the other day. They took three guys and served them each an equal portion of food. One guy had high carb, one had high fat and one had high protein. They all ate, then they watched them for a few hours. The fat and carb guys got hungry again way sooner than the protein guy.

You know my situation. The past 11 months have been an incredible education. Come to visit and I'll make you some amazing meals and show you a million little tricks that I've learned along the way. You can totally do this!

This all sounds good Glenn, but perhaps washing it down with a 12 pack isn't the best idea :action-sm


I recently started to develop a beer paunch so I'm making healthy lunch choices and having no beer / soda during the week. I'm also doing a half hour on the treadmill every day. My wife's got it set somehow on fucking steep hill so my legs feel numb when I get off. It's pretty eye opening to actually be watching what I eat. I was always able to just throw whatever I want down there.I figure 2 20 oz sodas and 4 beers a day is good for about 1000 calories..

Good job Dopie Opie. From what I've read in your posts, you and I are in about the same boat life-wise and I know how hard it is to carve out time for stuff like a workout.

Wow. I never realized a treadmill would be the one thing you couldn't figure out how to work. :action-sm (luv ya, BCH!)


I've had a headache for 2 days, but am trying desperately to stick with the Nutrisystem. I just have to get some vegetables.

vegetables cure headaches?

I've been feeling crappy all week and of course the one thing that suffers is my going to the gym. Even if I do manage to drag my ass there, I'm only doing half the cardio I've been doing and haven't done any weights since I had the flu 3 weeks ago.

But on the other hand - 1/2 cardio is better than no cardio?

No, Ma. Sex cures headaches. But I'm way more hungry than usual and there's only so much I can eat in a day. I think it's 'cause I haven't had my salad. :)
