Finally weigh less than 300 pounds

The scale officially said 299.5 this morning. It's taking longer to lose weight now as is typical. I really need to start running again. I actually go for a run last night after work. It had been exactly 4 weeks since I last went for one. It's definitely easier to run when there isn't as much weight to carry. Browsing through Facebook this evening, I found a couple recent pictures of me that are really hideous and show how fat I am. The first picture is from June and the 2nd one is from August, both of this year.

I really have no idea how much I weigh in either of those pictures. I know it was over 335 pounds because the scale would have said Err if I would have stepped on it during that time. The 2nd picture is really bad.
One of the reasons I started on this journey was that as you can see above, loose clothing doesn't hide anything or make you look slimmer. I had given up on that. Being slimmer helps make you look slimmer.

On the diet front, I've been doing pretty well. I'm not sure if I'm eating enough calories. I'm not starving myself and never feel like I need to eat something. I seem to be averaging 400 to 500 calories per meal. I hate to be gross but I also need to eat more food to help keep me regular. I've definitely noticed a difference in that department lately. Again sorry for sharing that but it is what it is.

I've really learned to like egg substitute. I'll make breakfast sandwiches with it on an english muffin or as an omelet. Another regular addition to daily food routine is almonds. I'll have a few in the morning and then a few in the afternoon to tide me over.

There are more and more temptations coming in at work. We get sent a lot of sweets, chocolates, popcorn, you name it from different companies we do business with as Christmas gifts. I've been able to stay from it all so far. I have looked it all over more than once.

Saturday night is the company Christmas party. Not sure what the food situation will be. Regardless, I'll either have a lot of the healthier stuff or if there isn't that, I'll go easy on the unhealthy stuff. Not sure if I'll have a drink or not. Good beer isn't exactly low calorie. I'll be sure to write about how it all goes.

Thank you to everyone who has been reading and mentioning that they've been following me. It really helps to know you're reading this so I'll keep going.
