Breakfast In Canada

Well just about a week's gone by since I started eating like a responsible adult and I am already down 3 pounds. (Mind you, for an Albertan (or even a Texan) that is just a moderately sized shit). What's more important is setting up responsible eating habits and patterns.

I hate berry pies but I could eat that thing in one gulp right now.

Right now the rules are easy: I will eat as much as I want of veggies, but cut the carbs, starches and proteins way back. I am going to see a dietician in a week or three just to make sure everything is on the up and square medically... but for now, just changing my habits is the goal. Unfortunately I have an addictive personality. I used to smoke and chew and went nuts trying to quit - and when I did I started eating instead. Mostly crap food too.

Don't think I could ever get hungry enough to eat that....

There's no magic bullet for guys like me. It's one day at a time, one pound at a time. I'm actually losing weight faster than I want right now; about a pound or two a week is what the medicos seem to think is reasonable. I look in the mirror and wonder what drove me to this? I am way too smart to be this heavy.

There we go. That right there is breaky done right.
A couple a eggs, some …. sob...toast....

Goddammitalltohell!!!! I am doing alright! The hardest part of anything like this is getting started. I have another couple tough weeks before metabolisms settle and routines take form... but I will get there. I might slip and eat Mort or Quartermain along the way... but I'll just keep chuggin'.

You do the same! And have a great Tuesday!


  1. Ditch the sweet stuff all together. Cut carbs as much as possible. Those just turn to sugar straight away. Not good for diabetes. Red meat fat is good, your body needs fat to be able to process the veggies.

  2. Forgot... One pound of fat is 3500 calories. Cut 500 to a 1000 calories from your daily intake and you will loose one to two pounds a week.

  3. Glen? Stop looking at me like that...

  4. Down 6 lbs. already fellas. Not proud of that - but at least it's a start. I have a long way to go...
