Bring on the Fat!

Published August 20, 2009 - 3 Comments

I stepped onto the scale on Monday evening.  Hmm… up 5 pounds from the previous Monday.  Normally I weigh myself in the morning, so perhaps that was part of it.  Oh wait!  Nah.. it was the return of the McDonalds diet.  Yes, that was more than likely the culprit. 

I doubt that the 3/4 lb Greco donair helped much either, but that was a mistake.  I had forgotten that they added the larger donair to their menu.  I’m so used to saying “Give me the biggest donair that you’ve got” and getting the 1/2 lb version, that I instinctively used those same words this time.  It should have been a hint when he said “That’ll be $10.71”   That’s quite the donair!

Ugh.  I brought it back to the office, and proceeded to make it my personal challenge for the remainder of the night.  When I was about half way through it, I had to come up for air.  This thing was killing my desire to live.  But it would only get worse as the night went on.  At the end of the day, rampant hunger prevailed and I reigned supreme as the victor! There can be only one!

So it should not have come as a huge surprise when my weight was up again.  It’s not like I’ve been anywhere near the gym again.  Oh wait… I walk by it on the way to work.  Oops..  So I have been near it.  I just haven’t been IN it. 

And here I am tonight.  I had the munchies, and the only thing open is the damn 24 hour McDonalds.  I’ve developed an appreciation of the Big Mac.  I’ve always been a Quarter Pounder guy, but I’d grown tired of those.  Well, let the Big Mac take its place for a bit.  Yummy.

  • Big Mac   540 calories
  • Large Fries   560 calories  (wow)
  • Med Coke   220 calories

Grand total   1310 calories.

So essentially I can’t eat until Friday afternoon sometime.[ad#AdBrite]
