holy butter calories batman

I think I have mentioned that I have experienced a bit of a weight gain... (I instantly think of Chris Farley in the movie Tommy boy and he says "I have a bit of a weight problem" Tee hee hee) anyways... so yes, I have gained some weight, I have been stressing over the camoflauge of hiding my muffin top (you know that fat the spills over the pants) Well my super fattyness has reach a new level or should I say, new pant size. Muffin top isn't even an option anymore in my size 12 Levi's, they have screamed Uncle and demanded I put them away until I drop 20! Pounds that is... Not push ups.

Well I am not going to whine anymore, starting nowI am going to watch my calories and figure out what I am putting into my mouth...

So I decided to examine my breakfast

1/2 tsp butter (I have SS pans, not nonstick) 50 cal
2 eggs 140 cal
2 slices of american cheese melted 140 cal
2 slices of white bread 100 cal

2 open faced egg and cheese sandwhich = 390 cal

Holy snikies, is that alot? how many calories am I supposed to eat in a day? I'm better off eating 3 eggs and forgoing the bread and cheese, which I guess deep down I knew that... :-(

This blows.


  1. I will be honest when I say that I need to lose a lot more than 20 pounds.
    Here is what has helped me.
    It is everything from calorie counting, exercises, videos, articles and people. The most important thing is the motivation. And it is FREE. So, if you haven't heard of it, check it out. I am ShanaM11 on there, in case you are interested. It has helped.

  2. I need to lose more than 20 too. I'm glad Shana commented first, i'll go check out that website!
