The Race for a little less… Update

Another weight update:

Starting weight (January 1st): 300

Current weight (as of this morning): 274

Total pounds lost: 26

Pounds to go: 44

Body weight percentage lost: ~8.6%

Percentage to goal: ~37%

Current issues:  Figuring out the calorie count of pasta.  Is the measurment given for dry or wet?  A cup of pasta dry is less than a pound cooked.  I’ve been calculating it as when it is dry, which I think has been artifically raising my calorie counts for some meals–which is neccesarily bad.  Temptation is another issue.  After the poker game on Saturday, a giant bag of tontino’s pizza rolls that someone brought were left int he freezer.  Those are a weakness.  I could easily throw them all in the oven with a little garlic salt, make a cave out of the rolls and eat my way out.  I haven’t yet… I’m thinking I might just give them away or toss them.  Something like that is too dangerous, especailly when 6 rolls equals 220 calories.  To rationalize eating them, I could not anything all day and then come home and eat 57 of the rolls…. or I guess I could just start the day out with them.  Mmm, breakfast of champions.

    I highly recommend “The Calorie King” book. It has really good carb, calorie and fat counts on just about everything, and gives specific info (like cooked, or uncooked). We use it for Jack’s diabetes, and it is our bible.
