I continued to ponder as I read some other people’s blogs, and then sat down for breakfast. As I was eating I asked my wife how many calories she thought I was eating. She had made me two bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches; here’s my calorie total for breakfast:
- 1 Large cup of coffee with cream and sugar – 150 calories
- 3 Eggs – 210 calories
- 4 Pieces of Bacon – 120 calories
- ¾ Oz. Cheese – 75 calories
- 4 Pieces of Bread – 480 calories
- 2 Tbsp Butter – 200 calories
I told my wife I’m ready to start now. We’re doing this together so I needed her agreement; we compromised on starting tomorrow (which ironically will be our cheat day). It doesn’t matter; in my opinion we really started today. I went into the basement and setup an area for working out. The new house we bought 2 months ago came with an elliptical machine and a treadmill plus we already had an elliptical and free weights. I don’t like the elliptical that came with the house plus it only supports 325 lbs, so I’m giving that one to a friend. I organized the room and now it’s ready to be used.
Later on we went out to the big and tall store. All of my clothes are extremely tight and so I wanted to get just a couple things to hold me over until the pounds start coming off. First I had to drive 45 minutes to get there. When I arrived they didn’t have any jeans that were “regular fit”. I know we fat guys need some room in the seat, but it’s always too much for me and it always looks like I have a big load in my pants. Anyway, no jeans, but I found a nice pair of shorts. I tried and tried to find a collar shirt to match but no luck. Everytime I found a color I liked I couldn’t find it in my size (3XLT). Finally, I got pissed, dropped the shorts, and left. Nothing like a waste of a 45 minute drive! All the way home I kept thinking about how mice it would be to not have to go to a special store to buy clothes anymore. The time will come soon!
Tomorrow morning I will get on the scale. Then My wife and I will go shopping to get the food we need for the rest of the week. I am starting to get excited. Even though tomorrow is a cheat day for us (In order to keep our schedule right), I still plan on eating reasonable. Tomorrow I’ll post my plan… and my starting weight. Wish me luck!
