Weight: 282 – Pounds left to lose: 122

I’m finally starting to climb down from my plateau. I’ve really revved up my exercise routine again, walking 5 or 6 days a week. It’s intense, true, but necessary. I think I have to exercise this much because otherwise my lifestyle consists of sitting around. I sit in front of a computer 8 hours a day, I’m sitting while I commute for an hour round trip, and then I’m usually sitting in front of the TV or reading or doing some other hobby. It’s sit, sit, sit, unless I’m sleeping when’s it’s lie down, lie down, lie down. If I don’t go for my walk, the most exercise I get is walking to and from my work building.

Anyway, I’m down 90 pounds all together now. Give me another 5-6 weeks and we’ll be in triple digits baby! Another 15 pounds and I’ll officially have hit the half way point. I totally rock :)

In food news, I’m really digging omelettes right now. Why did it take me 25 years to discover the omelette? I like it so much better than scrambled eggs, which is basically the only egg dish my mother ever made. I just beat some eggs, pour them in the pan, sprinkle turkey and mozzarella cheese on it and fold. So quick. So easy. So tasty. I’ve been having them for dinner since I like to take all the time I can to sleep in the morning.

Another strange development, I’m not minding cooking as much as I used to. I think this is because I’ve found about 4 or 5 recipes that are tasty but I can whip up in less than 30 minutes with little difficulty. Taking the hassle out of cooking makes it, well, less of a hassle. I haven’t even felt the need to just get a Quiznos salad lately, partly because the store near me closed and the closest one has a bitchy, bitchy parking lot that I hate. After getting hit in a parking lot a month ago, I’m more wary of poorly designed parking lots than ever before.

i just started reading your blog and I can’t stop. it’s so interesting to go through your weightloss with you. I keep thinking the next post will be a list of your typical foods for the day or recipes (like these 4 dishes you talk about in this post). Maybe soon?

Thanks for your blog.

I love a good omlette. I like to add green peppers, green onions, baby spinach, etc etc etc with a bit of cheese and turkey.

I've suffered through soooooo many political ads this season, so I'm kinda glad to hear we've topped the nation in spending because it sure does feel like it.

I know not everyone will agree with me, but I think Kaci Hickox is pretty badass. I admire her for standing up to policies that are based on fear, not science.
