PDA

View Full Version : Kicking myself in the butt after 20 days of pathetic nonhuman binge eating

I was doing fine until about 20 days ago. There was some construction going on at my house and I had to stay with a friend for a few days. I was completely thrown off of my normal routine and ended up getting fast food because I was pressed for time before work. Since then I've been making nothing but excuses to avoid the gym and gorge on fast food.

My worst excuse so far is that I left my gym shorts on my friend's house. Rather than call him up and then go get my shorts back, I keep putting it off to avoid the gym. Afterall, it's *impossible* to go work out without my favorite pair of shorts. Oh, and going to get them is slightly inconvenient so I'll just do it tomorrow.

My main problem though has been breakfast at McDonalds. I work a graveyard shift so McDonalds just starts serving breakfast right as I'm driving home from work. My staple meal is 8 hash browns, 4 sausage burritos, and 4 sausage egg McMuffins w/ cheese. Oh yeah, and a Diet Coke. Even though I'm eating a bag of McDonalds the size of a monster truck, I still want that *Diet* Coke. Wouldn't want to get fat or anything right?

I understand that I'm fully capable of changing. Afterall, I used to weight 446 pounds and eat small children and moving vehicles on a regular basis. I know I've got what it takes so it's disgusting to see myself fail like this. Tomorrow is a new day though. And this time I mean it. I am going to get those shorts tomorrow and I'm going to the gym. I'm going to bring my carefully planned lunch to work and I'm not going to eat anything else.

Looks like someone is in need of a motivational rant...

HOLY ****!!!


Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude!!!!

That McDonald's meal would feed a family! Hell, it'd feed TWO families of 4!

It's time to take control again. Your progress was spectacular, and the stuff of WBB legend--don't **** it up now. Is a greasy, deep-fried potato worth starting back at square one? Is an egg, cooked into a perfect circle (creepy) worth having to do all that work over again?

IN TWENTY DAYS YOU'VE GAINED 31 POUNDS..

Think about this. Think about theincredible bulker you'll be when you FINISH YOUR CUT.

No one like cutting. I've been cutting for a solid year now, and still have a ways to go, but YOU CANT **** THIS UP. YOU are the WBB motivational example. YOU are the measuring stick by which we all hold our progress (bulkers included now, I guess). YOU must complete your mission.

OK..**** the motivation..how abou this?

I went to the McD website and tallied up that feast...

4120 calories!

So..a pound offatbeing 3,500 calories, you're BASICALLY gaining a pound every time you eat that meal. THINK ABOUT THIS WHEN YOU HEAD THAT WAY!!!!!!!

That should be all it takes!

Only managed 10 laps today. I also have pretty bad heartburn still from the last gorge fest. I'm determined to stick with that meal plan today though.

It's a little low, but I don't think it's too low.

Slow and steady wins the race, man. Use Fitday.com to figure out how many calories you burn each day and shoot for a 500-1000 calorie deficit each day. Anything more than that and you're likely to find it hard to stay on the program for extended periods of time. Also, what's the reason for only doing 2 reps on the deadlifts? Seems like you'd want to do 8-12 reps with a much lower weight to get your heart pumping.
