Day 79 - The Food

Hello blog.

Had a breakfast burrito, a slice of lemon bread, chocolate covered graham crackers, a vanilla latte, 2 cheeseburgers, a small Hi-C, a chicken sandwich, a grilled cheese sandwich and french fries with ranch.

About 3800 on the day.

Until tomorrow,


  1. Wow, Eric. Well, I wish you the best of luck on your journey, but I think I'm done following it. I sat here for ten minutes trying to think of something positive to write here, because I realize that you've got serious eating problems, but I don't think I've got anything to offer that you'd be receptive to.

    So as a parting gift, I'll say one more time that this isn't simply a calorie number game and even if it is, I'd guess that you're underestimating the numbers tragically. Even if you're not, the restaurants you're counting on for the info are (http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1951798,00.html)

    I sincerely do wish you the best of luck, Eric.
    Take care.

  2. Eric,

    I am going to continue following you, because I think you need support and I am not going to give up on you. However, I hope you recognize that a lot of us are super serious about being healthier, so we are going to be super serious with you. After having such a high caloric day, eating not-so-great items, how do you feel? Are you alright? What was the cause in particular that made you choose the food that you ate today?


  3. I'm with Jack- are you kidding? I can't help but think you are joking when I read your previous posts. You eat like crap, dude. If you are REALLY trying to lose weight, you should read the Eat This, Not That franchise of books for the types of foods you seem to prefer.

    If you are joking, that is a really crappy joke.


  4. I'm not a therapist, but I know what I need to do to get healthy and one of the things I can do is surround my self with like minded folks. I wish you the best of luck. I hope you accomplish what you set out to. Take care and listen to the people that know how to help. I hope the joke doesn't turn out to be on you.

  5. Hi Eric,

    I'm not gonna stop following your blog. I do wonder sometimes if you are playing a joke b/c I've never seen anyone who posts so many consecutive days of bad eating w/o explaining the feelings or reason behind it...especially on what is supposed to be a weight loss blog. However, if you are truly wanting to change and you are just "stuck", I can identify with that. I think there are people who've been at this weight loss thing for a long time that may have forgotten what it feels like to be given up on. That's hard on anyone...even if the people who are giving up on you are complete strangers. So, while you are going through this "trying to kill yourself quickly phase", I may not comment as often, b/c lets face it...you are a big boy and you KNOW what you are doing to yourself. No one needs to tell you anymore. Only you can bring yourself to reality and only you can change you. No one else can. I'll put this out there: If you want to talk just come over to my blog and leave a comment for me. I moderate my comments and wouldn't publish anything you write unless you want me to. I'll give you my email...if you want to talk about things. Maybe talking to someone who has been through the binge eating thing would help you...someone who still struggles, but has gotten through the mental junk of binge eating. Take it or leave it...I'm just putting it out there. Take care....please.
