Memoir Monday: The '10 Diet Run.

(Hey guys and gals. It's Memoir Monday time! This is where you write down a story about yourself, steal my button down there, drink a beer, and call it all a win. The only rule is that it has to be true, other than that, there are no rules. I keep getting more and more people to follow my lead! It's catching on! Will YOU be one on the bandwagon this week? Once you post, let me know, and I will link you up down there for all my kick ass bloggy followers to go and read! Y'all are the greatest, and I love you. If you want to see all the Memoir Monday posts, just click on the book!)


Well folks...

I made it 48 hours on the diet of '10.

As it turns out, a lot of you were right.

Go ahead.

Tell me I told you so.

I'll listen out one ear while I stuff the other one with areosol cheese in a desperate attempt to somehow make up the calories for those 48 hours of restricted hell on earth.

It was brutal y'all.

Did you READ my Sesame Street post? I was still drunk. I was still drunk because a.) I had a half a bottle of Jager, some Vodka, and a bunch of beers the night before, and b.) I hadn't had anything else on my stomach to soak that booze up.

I just want to thank everyone for their support, and you'll be glad to know that I've modified the diet to include food. I'm still going to be exercising though, although I forgot to do that yesterday.


Since I know that some of you will want to how it all ended, I will tell you.

I almost fell over, and I got real cold. I think my sugar probably got low. And by low I mean normal, since I don't think I've ever been low in my life.

We had a gift card to Chili's where we went and I proceded to eat an approximate metric ton of chips and salsa.

How hungry was I?

A kid (the same kid that made me watch Sesame Street, as a matter of fact) threw up somewhere in the neighborhood of a gallon and a half of mucus AT THE TABLE, INTO THE CHIP TRAY.

No. I didn't eat a chip out of it after that, but for sure, I asked for another chip tray, and made even shorter work of it. The queso happened to look exactly like the above mentioned mucus, and do you think that slowed me down? Nope. Eat on, Big T.

Anyway, yeah. It's over.

Other Non-Cheating Buffets Of Memories Today...GO READ THEM!


  1., you fell off the wagon. Get back on, but do it right! Eat healthy!! And, are you sure it wasn't me that puked in those chips today??

  2. Oh, Travy... What are we gonna do with you? I hope you learned a valuable lesson. Please don't give up. But please, do it right - BE HEALTHY!

    By the way, I saw a Biggest Loser commercial tonight. It made me think of you... And how hard I'd laugh at Jillian kicking your ass... Hehehehehe

  3. Well Bleeechhh I could have gone all night without that mental image there Travis.. and here I went and gave you 2 awards on my blog... geesh..
    So what we all fall short. ANd what you were doing was VERY dangerous, and yep it was probably sugar my friend, DANGEROUS good grief I knwo men hate listening to women and think they know it all but Ya don't good grief why do ya think there are more women dieters then men period?? We KNOW this stuff..

  4. Alright now that you got that outta your system. Get the freakin' button, follow us Lose It Bitches! and do it right!

    Even Daffy is contributing diabetic friendly and healthy recipes. We will support you, ya big goon!

  5. HA! ZGirl beat me to it! I was going to invite you to join us bitches on OUR plan. I'd like to say I'm sorry that your plan didn't work, but I'm not really. I was worried about you!

  6. No no's ok. It's hard in the beginning and you will break your diet; no problem. Just make sure you continue working on it.

    I decided to participate on Memoir Monday as I just remembered a funny story when I was a kid.

  7. Dude, just start slowly. Replace 1 of your meals (lunch is easiest, with a salad and lean meat). Then walk for 20 minutes a day for the first week.

    Each week change better or exercise more.

    You can do it!

  8. You can do it, just be reasonable.
    I'm glad you're not giving up.
    Hell, you can't.
    None of us will let you.
    Talk about humiliating-just try quitting. You'll fine out how humiliating people can make it for you.

  9. there is my link hun

  10. Gallon and a half of mucus, huh? Well, there goes my appetite for breakfast. Thanks for helping me with my diet.

    I threw up a piece today, too. A memoir, that is.


  11. Am I a terrible person that after all your bloggity threats to lose the weight equivalent to an entire person, I feel better to know you are human like the rest of us? It's only day 4 of the year. We have lots of time to get skinny!

  12. Great.

    Now I want Mucus Cheese Dip.

  13. Yes, get right back on the wagon, and treat yourself better this time! Come on, dude, you can do this. I am serious about low carb. It works really well for men because you can still have MEAT. Well, you can only mostly have meat. But it works. I promise if you stick to it, it will work, and the best part is, you won't be as hungry.

  14. Keep at it Travis! You'll find something that works for you. :)

    (If you try that "Eat normal one day and then restrict calories the next" thing someone mentioned in your comments earlier...I'd like to know how that goes.)

  15. Diets Suck...good luck. I don't know if I'll ever eat at Chili's again, but then again...

    Here is my Memoir Monday submission. Two weeks in a!


  16. Dude, if you suddenly limit yourself to 6oo-ish calories, you know you're doing your body more harm than good, right?


    Seriously, Travis. You need to do this slower and healthier. Otherwise you're just wasting your time.

    ...and you might have a heart attack in the process.

    And then I'd miss your blog :-)

  17. LOL first time commenting. I like the comment form. *thumbs up*

    Good luck on your diet! Im going hard on mine. I need to lose weight. I refuse to continue gaining.

    BTW I plan on participating on your Memoir Monday.

  18. Gosh, a new you? And you already fell off the wagon?? Hmmm. Try try again until you succeed! My advice for the day! :P

  19. Everyone falls off the wagon and makes mistakes. Just get back on the train tomorrow!

  20. Yes food is important to the whole LIVING day at a time.

    Hop over to the Lose It Bitches blog for fun recipes and tips! (yes, that was a shameless plug)

  21. Do you really want to lose weight or did you just say that on the blog so people think you care about the fact that you are overweight. It's okay, you can tell me, I won't tell anyone.

  22. Well the good news is, now that you got THAT out of the way...onward and upward m'man! The road to success isn't always paved....sometimes you have to make your own're going to stumble, you're going to have set backs. So long as you are prepared for them, you'll come out alright!

    Weight loss isn't a race, it's a out and out war...war against old bad behavior...war against your body who's forsaken you...war against all those TV commercials that make you want to run our and eat big fat cheeseburgers! Oh how I love big fat cheeseburgers! moderation of course!

    You can do t can do it.


  23. Because I is dumb with the Internez, I'll submit my link right here:

    Perhaps reading about my culinary adventures in China will help you get back on the wagon. Eyeballs?

    Seriously, keep trying. I enjoy reading about your adventures.

  24. oops! forgot to include the link...sorry!

  25. That's ok. It's one small step and a time. Keep up with the exercise and eat. Just do it with some moderation and you'll be surprised at the results.

  26. come on over to lose it bitches! we'll be there for ya, ya big goon! what the hell were you thinking?!

    glad you're ok, tho. you ARE ok, aren't you? i mean physically...we all know about the mental stuff.

  27. OK, you guilted me into it. I posted your thingy up there on my blog.

  28. You are so loved and have so much support TravyG. You can do this!!

  29. totally just submitted my story. great Idea! i already have another one for next monday

  30. My god, and I thought I was the only one that thought queso looked like vomit. Tasty, tasty vomit.

  31. Christ Travis you dont half go at things hell for leather dont you?Glad you gave up the horrendous 500cal diet and if you want to lose weight just cut out the crap and exercise more and maybe a little less booze would help too

  32. I'm relieved that you've given up the 500 calorie diet. I'm on the bandwagon with everyone else, EAT! I'm attempting the low carb diet myself. Made it one day so far.

    For me the hardest part is the evening. But since I can have Ricotta cheese dessert (see South Beach Diet), it helps me get through the day. Plus I do love meat. I can stick to this diet for a couple weeks anyway. (I can stick to this diet for a couple of weeks anyway. I can stick to this diet for a couple of weeks anyway.)

  33. Here's more of my stupid advice. Try Weight Watchers online. You don't have to go to the meetings and you can eat whatever you want. Writing it down really helps to keep you accountable.

    (Not that I've logged into my WW account in 6 months. But when I follow the plan, it really works.)


The price for my stories is your conversation.
