I know I mentioned a while back that I have been trying to eat healthier and it has been going pretty good for the most part. During the week is easy to eat healthy because we mainly eat at home and force ourselves to make something healthier for us rather than go out to eat. The weekends is when it starts to become hard because we have worked all week, don’t feel like making anything and just want to go out to eat. Plus, we enjoy seeing movies and what not which is like automatic candy craving for me. So, I would say that besides the weekends – we have both been doing pretty well in regards to eating healthier.
We have both been exercising a lot more too where it is to the point that if we miss an exercise day then we feel guilty for not doing anything. But, I am finally starting to see some weight being lost which is positive. He drops weight like it is nothing but I lose weight really slow. I have heard most women lose weight at a slower rate than men though which is frustrating.
Anyways, it is funny because we have a scale in our bathroom and a lot of times after I have wet my diaper I will stand on the scale in just a diaper and weigh myself with the diaper on. Then, I would take the diaper off just to see how much weight I essentially lost in water/urine weight. I know that is strange but its entertaining because it is like an immediate weight drop. Try it sometime. I think the most amount I have lost after I wet my diaper was like 2 pounds basically. That is a lot of urine. I am sure if you are drunk and had a lot to drink then you could probably even beat that..
Am trying to eat healthier too I find the best thing to do is to buy food shopping over the internet and get it delivered (Not sure if you get that in the USA) because there is no temptation to buy cream cakes or chocolate lol :):)
start out your day with a bottle of water., the first thing you should eat is some carbs…(hash browns, home fries)…and just eat lightly all day. When you eat out just make sure to lay off the bread and red meat. Try to stay away from whole meals. Hope all works out!
I lost 20 lbs this year by eating better. Count your calories and you’ll see it come off. My wife did the same and she lost weight at the same rate I did. I used livestrong.com for keeping track and making sure I was eating what I needed to a day to lose a pound a week.
I also would weigh myself with a diaper on then off.
Whenever i weigh myself i make sure to urinate + take a dump, for maximum results. Usually works out to a difference of like 3 lbs or more!
Adrian, you’re a funny individual! Good for you on the weight loss and healthier eating.
Great blog, Adrian!
I think it is important to note that one’s thoughts towards eating and exercise are an influence in one’s ability to lose weight. When food is eaten with thoughts towards enjoying the food, the body assimilates/digests the food better; on the other hand, if one eats while stressed about possible weight gain, it is no surprise that the body tries to hold-on to those calories. For me, this has worked well to feel better both emotionally and physically.
Anyway, it is great to hear that you are eating healthier!
By the way, to comment on the whole before/after weight for diapers, one should note that there are POUNDS of waste sitting in the body. It is not surprising to note large drops in weight after (I think?) suppositories are prescribed–as might be used to evacuate the colon, in preparation for a colonoscopy. Personally, I find weight to be a bit misleading. I focus on muscle tone, because I know that muscles consume far more energy than fat tissue; more muscle = better fat-weight control.
Keep in mind that water weighs in at 8.3 lbs/gal, so drinking the daily recommended 8 – 8 oz glasses of water (64 oz or 1 gal) will add 8 lbs to your weight.
fun fact: professional hockey goalies can loose up to 12 pounds a game in fluids.
