July 22, 2009--221.5 Pounds (500th post)

Food today: breakfast sandwich(300)--yogurt(100)--hot pocket(350)--pineapple(320)--yogurt(100)--crackers(200)--

(Yes, my food intake is really repetitive from day to day.)


This is my 500th post on this blog (that's not including the hundreds of diet posts that were on the original blog). My first post here was November 26, 2007, and the starting weight was 225 pounds, the same weight as when I started the first blog in February, 2006.

As best as I can tell from the titles of my posts, since 11/26/07 I've never gotten below 214.5 pounds and there was a short stretch where I ballooned up into the 226-231 range. Mostly it has been about 20 months of upper 210's and lower 220's. Think about that--20 months of supposed dieting and no progress made on getting out of the obese category. It's rather sad even when looking at the silver lining of 20 months without gaining any additional weight.

The best way to describe my efforts since late 2007 is this quote:

"Good is not enough when better is possible."

I know that better is possible and settling for the status quo just isn't good enough.
