Bad time of the year

I’ll do an official weigh in sometime soon, but I am sure it won’t be good. Erin and I went to Buffalo this past week, and I was out of control eating-wise. That often happens when I eat out a lot. And Erin and I did a lot of that. There was some really good food, such as buffalo wings from the Anchor Bar. There was some not-so-good food, like the burger from the Buffalo Grill in Hamburg. All in all, there was simply too much food.

This is traditionally my worst time of the year weight-wise. I always gain a lot of weight during November and December. Even back when I had gotten myself down under 250 pounds, I would gain during this time of the year. Most of this is due to egg nog. I simply cannot resist that fat-filled, 1000 calorie per pint concoction. I’m trying to limit myself this year, but it isn’t working out well.

Thanksgiving is tomorrow; after that, hopefully I can start reeling myself in. I need to do something, if not I’m going to gain back all the weight I’ve lost since September!

Weight: 308. Difference from last entry: +2

I don’t think I can put into words just how much fun it has been to stay home and spend time with Colin and Erin. I knew I would love to be a father, I just underestimated how wonderful it would be! But this is not the place for that; go to my LiveJournal for more of my thoughts about fatherhood.

What I haven’t done a great job at is minding my weight. I think this was understandable for the first couple of weeks after Colin was born, but it’s not anymore. I should be back on track, instead I am using this as an excuse to misbehave. I actually went grocery shopping this past weekend, specifically so I could be good this week. That didn’t happen!

But I do realize that I need to get back on track. I didn’t do a horrible job today, and I think I am ready to get back on track starting tomorrow morning.
