2014 Weight Loss, Week 9

This post is somewhat delayed due to the moving of my domain to a new hosting company. Also, I had to get a new cable so I can grab some pictures off the phone.  Regardless, when I weighed in this morning, I had a somewhat disappointing result of 315.4 pounds, which is only a 0.6 pound drop off of last week’s 316 pounds.

I did have a couple of failures.  The first happened early in the week, where I had way, way, way more than a few Chips Ahoy! Chewy Gooey Chocofudge chocolate chip cookies. ^_^;

If that had been my load failure, I would have been OK. Unfortunately, some friends and went to Woody’s Tavern on Thursday evening after work and got the all you can eat pizza/salad/soup bar. I made sure to have a low carb meal for lunch (which is when I usually have carbs) so that I could eat my carb meal that evening. It was good, but alas, I ended up eating way more than I should have. ^_^;

This didn’t hurt me, but on Saturday, I got a Tokyo Joe’s large chicken bowl with yellow curry sauce (had a coupon to buy one, get one free). While this is not authentic Japanese food, it is pretty good for a rice bowl

Speaking of Japanese food, Wednesday, a group of us went to Sakura House, which is the Japanese restaurant I’ve mentioned previously.  I almost forgot to take photos, but I did manage to take a shot of the karage and korokke appetizers we ordered as well as the tempura set (tempura shrimp and tempura veggies with a bowl of udon). I’d eaten half of my tempura before I remembered I hadn’t taken the shot. ^_^;

Anyway, I have to try not to eat so much this week so that I can have more weight loss rather than minimal weight loss.
