day 47

212.. I'm feeling better about myself and almost back to 2 weeks ago at 211. My goal is 210 by monday, which would be 2# week since i started back. Can I do it? I'm not going to beat myself up if I don't. I'm eating in plan but have a party tonite w/ food. If i stick to 0 carbs tonite I should be good for monday. Damn weekends are so hard! I dont really have anything planned so sitting at home is a struggle. I know, I wont go shopping! ..uh but when I dont then I "think" i am hungry cuz there's no food in the house. Oh, what too do?!

Here's what I'm going to do for today and this weekend:

DRINK lots and lots of water
EXERCISE sat morning swimming and Wii Fit over the weekend
EAT very low carbs 0-20/day
THINK positive
VISUALIZE what I will look like at 150#
SMILE alot

*you are in control your own thoughts, make them positive ones*

Peace out.

day 48

Got up and weighed in at 210! hot diggity! Headed to swim aerobics (felt great), came home showered and got ready to head down to the shop for the new group ride class. Someone at the shop asked if i lost weight.. i dont see it, I'm wearing the same jeans I did a year and a half ago. She was just being nice. Of course I told her no i wasnt.. lol

Made it through the party last night with salad, brisket, and 6 shrimp. It was tough to see and smell all the sugary desserts but I RESISTED!! They would have made me feel like crap anyway. Spent the afternoon at home with the kitties and a movie.

Todays menu:
b-scrambled eggs
l-crock pork and salad
d-crock pork and cauliflower
LOTS of water!
Im at 1200 cals and 8 carbs.. so I might have a snack.

One more weekend day to go...

TOM starts next week.. ugh

*chugga chugga chugga choo choo*

Peace out.

day 49

210 this morning.

Also checked my blood glucose for the first time since August. 118 after breakfast! HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY! in august, when i was not doing well, it was over 300. I quit taking my meds and was eating bags of peanut butter m&ms. Self torture, self destruction. Hated my new diabetic nurse, she never did what she said she was..lots of promises, all broken. I didnt need that to happen to me anymore. And well.. here I am. Without her, without help, without drugs.. eating low carb and doing well! I remember when she looked at my food log and yelled at me that i wasnt eating any carbs. She couldnt focus on anything else but how I was eating. What a moron! I was eating salads, vedggies, meat, and an apple a day. Since there was no grains or pasta, I was made out to be bad. Screw dat b*tch! <breath in, breath out.. dont stress> lol

Lots of water today, eggs, salad, chicken and getting ready to take a walk.

*low carb rocks*

Peace out.

day 50

It's official weigh in morning & official 1st of the month weight... 209!

DAILY AVEREAGE CAL/CARB for last week mon-sun:
1,509 cals
20.71 carbs

EXERCISE:
300 mins aerobic, 110 mins brisk walking

I'm back on track and drinking lots of water! I want to lose 2.5 # week, that bad week screwed me up. I've tweeked my menu and am looking forward to March being a better month with huge success!

It's hard for me to lose weight being IR, a slow process. Am trying to stay focused and be happy with 2# week. I know I'm not like all those others who can lose 10# in a week or even 20# in a month. I have to be happy with who I am and what I can do and not compare myself to others. It's always a struggle.

This weeks goals:
Stay under 20 carbs/day
Drink lots of water
Exercise 400 mins
Be positive
Picture myself at 170# on my birthday

*Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today*

Peace out.

day 51

208 this morning. Also welcoming TOM for the next day or two just like clockwork.

This journal helps keep me accountable and I need that. I also have a spreadsheet where I log EVERYTHING.. food, cals, carbs, exercise, daily weight, goals. If it didnt do that, this wouldnt work for me.. been there done that and failed many times. Live and learn!

I've been anxious about seeing the pounds drop, wishing the weeks would zoom by so I can see results faster!

I really enjoyed swimming last night, a total rush! I am feeling stronger each time i go and this time was able to keep up for the most part. Still concentrating on not hurting myself (neck, back, shoulder, wrist..Iím a wreck) so must still be careful and take it easy on some things. Last night I was able to keep up and that surprised me as well as Coach Kevin, hehe! My next goal is to see my swimsuit fit better! LOL!

Todays menu the same as yesterday.. (i'm a simple girl)
4 scrambled eggs for breakfast
Chicken and swiss cheese for lunch
Swiss cheese for snack (didnít have time to pack anything this morn)
Chicken salad for dinner
Green tea (always)

Oh yeahÖ been forgetting to count calories in Olive oil when cooking AND forgetting to add carbs in splenda. I eat a lot of sweetener in my tea and I cringe when I read what splenda is about. So, ordered some Stevia both liquid and packets.

*it's all up to me*

Peace out.

funny...

I've been sitting here at the computer ALL day and staring at my goals and statistics from my spreadsheet. I'm so fn excited to know that in a certain amount of time I will have lost a certain amount of weight! My goals aren't set too high so they are acheivable! Again, I'm so FN excited! I cant wait for success!!

*STOKED*

day 52

TOM still here, 209 this morning.

My fat rolls felt tight last night (not jiggley puff) so I knew this morning the scale would be up. I forced myself to swimming last night even though I wasnít into it. Mondays workout was hard so my shoulder hurt, thighs burned and energy was lacking. I was really tired when I got home from work and even though I laid on the couch for an hour or so before going, I felt worn out and I donít know why, work is the sameÖnothing strenuous or high stressed happened. One of those days I guess.

Iíve eaten the same foods (am used to eating same foods days at a time lol) for B-L-S-D as I did the last couple days. Cals/carbs same. Iíve been thinking a lot about all the Splenda Iíve been putting in my drinks. I donít use the packets but rather the stuff in the big bag. After reading some posts, Iím sure Iíve over extended my carb counts and havenít even taken the carbs into account or logged them down. Iím a bit depressed over this! My bad! Time for a change!

Am drinking some Dieters Tea this morning to get things moving, itís been a couple days. Not TMI.. itís life and itís MY journal.. hahaha

Thatís it, that's all I have to say this morning.

*Along with success comes a reputation for wisdom*

Peace out.

day 53

208. TOM gone pretty much, that was 2 days this month and no cramps. Wondering if lack of cramps is from healthier (LC) eating..hmmm..

It’s was cold this morning but starting out as a sunny day. Might have to go home for lunch and get the bad motor scooter.

Felt better swimming last night, at least I was in the mood for it. I am there 100% for my body and mind and not to socialize. I wont blow up from compressed air if I don’t engage in conversation with the other women! LOL It’s been uncomfortable having to ignore others as they are trying to look to me to talk while I’m trying to exercise. I might have to mention I cant do both! Argh!

Have a meeting tonite at 7pm, so no swimming. Don’t know what I’ll do for exercise today as I didn’t bring my walking shoes. Maybe take a day off? Egads, that doesn’t sound good..


Was looking at my food log and I ate the same foods for 5 days in a row! So last night I stuck a roast in the crock. Cant wait for lunch!

*The mind is everything. What you think you become*

Peace out.

207... alright! Can I make it to 206 by Monday morn...

No exercise last night but i did watch a couple of movies.. Hangover and The Box. Both were pretty good. Got up this morning and swam for 60 mins, felt great! Came home, cleaned up and now ready to go riding with the biker beotches. Tried on my leather vest last night and it fits much better although I still have a long ways to go.

So last night after dinner I made those baked green beans I've been reading about in LCF.. they were OK and I managed to eat a whole cup of them. :blush: I also had a tablspn of PB and 1 tsp of honey (my weakness) then 22 almonds. This was all after I ate a salad with chicken for dinner. I felt like I was pigging out but in reality, it wasnt all that much and I lost a # this morning.. Yes, I beat myself up more then anything. All is good, just dont go overboard.

Today:
Green teas, water, low carb, low cal, vitamins, exercise

*do something nice today*

Peace out.

207. The scale is teetering from 205 up instead of 208 down.

Had a great weekend! Went to a birthday party today and had NO cake, NO icecream, NO potatoe salad, NO macaroni salad, NO sandwhiches... you get the picture! Best part about it all... I was OK with it! I kept thinking about my "official" weigh in on Monday and that alone kept me in control! So happy with myself!

Peace out.

day 57

207 this morning again. -2 for the week! Iím still on schedule, feeling lighter from losing and stronger from exercise, along with losing inches! Size 14 (still a little tight cuz of the semi-truck size spare tire around my middle) -16 (fits just right - a little loose) jeans and L-XL tops are fitting better each week even though the loss isnít tremendous. Must mean Iím doing something right!

Last Weeks stats:

Daily average: 1369 cals 15.14 carbs

277 mins (5 days) exercise

This weeks goals:

Lots of water
Lots of exercise
Lots of thinking positive
Lots of picturing me in size 8 jeans

*SAY YES TO LOW CARB*

Peace out.

day 58

207 again.

Had a bout with Peanut Butter and Honey last night. Had 1 serving then added a sprinkle of SF choco pudding and that turned into 2 servings that turned into 3 servings! 600 cals 12 carbs + the honey .75 tbsp @ 45 cals 13 carbs! Then I ate some lettuce and feta dressing 150 cals 5 carbs! OINK OINK


I was beating myself up over it but I ended the day with 60 mins of aerobic swimming and 1875 cals and 47 carbs. Not terrible even though I slapped myself around all night about it! I even posted a thread asking people (hahaha all the responses, I know I asked for them but some were kinda mean, some made sense…some inspiring, a couple were snarky…cant wait to reply to those!)

Just so people know that read this.. I don’t do atkins whole heartily.. it doesn’t work for me. I’m lower fat, low carb…and it has proven to work. (I will blog this in that thread).

I am finding my food journals from previous years. Ya know, I’ve lost ~50# twice before in the past few years. (I just have trouble maintaining…DUH!) Looking at it says carbs under 20 don’t work for me and that’s what I’ve been doing the past 4 weeks. I need to up those and add in my apple a day and some other stuff.. Under 40 works consistantly. So its documented! I am a spreadsheet guru, I got it all down, calc’d, averaged, color coded.. I know my statistics! LOL!!

PB and honey in the trash tonite! Damn COE and cravings take over and I cant seem to control myself with that nummynummcious treat! Ahhhhh

*Control thyself*

Peace out.

here it comes... 205! -2 from PB night! hahahahahahaha

#20 gone today! average: #20 / 59 days = .34 # per day

Yep, that's how it happened before. Nice and steady!

Yesterday I added back in my apple a day (i miss those) and everything else the same. Eggs, meat, salads, veggies, some yogurt, some nuts. I'm pretty consistent about it. Need to keep it under 30-40 carbs/day.

Today:
Water aerobics tonite, lost of water, vitamins, green tea

*whatever it is, stick with it... IT WILL WORK*

Peace out.

day 60 - 83

Still LC'ng, exercising 3-5x week. Had a couple bad days but probably beat myself up more then they were bad. I havent stopped my journey and new way of eating. Was lost for those dark days and I think it was due to reading so many different ways to eat and it wasnt working for me. I need to eat for me, period! Not worry about what others say and their high and mighty opinions. Low Fat, Low Carb, no indulgences ..that works.

202 today. Eggs, salads, chicken, yogurt, sliced almonds, strawberries, apples, veggies. Nothing complicated and I'm not starving or deprived. What works for me works best for my weight loss. I never followed someone elses plan and dont want anyone to follow mine.

I feel better every day and I'm stronger from swimming and working out. Yeah!

*Be yourself*

Peace out.

Oh yeah... I have piles of different size jeans.. 18 stack is out of the closet, comfortable 16s moved to the top and I'm squeezing into 14's! Going through some size xl shirts that I can wear again, i can get one of my favorite coats snapped and it doesnt pop open when I sit or move (yay), grunting is less, muscle tone is more, old belts are coming out of the boxes, had someone notice for the first time today I looked slimmer.. Life is good.

201! That's 1.96#/week loss since I started, slow-n-steady. 24 pounds so far, I'm so excited! Even with a couple up and down days. When the scale shows a loss I feel so darn good for the day, I smile all day long and picture myself this summer in clothes I havent worn in a couple years. I just have to becareful not to let the stagnant days get to me because loss will happen if I let it!

Swim tonite, always look forward to that.

Eggs, yogurt, strawberries, almonds, chicken, asparagas, coffee N cream is on the menu today.

Close to ONEDERLAND!

*one day at a time, keeping the future in mind*

Peace out.

day 89 - 199#

I did it! Onederland, again!

Things going pretty well. I've been having over 2 full good weeks of eating. That means no indulgences! I have a struggle with myself when the scale tips up a pound, and it does a couple times before going down. It goes down then up, then down, up and then down down. On up days I go through the day saying screw it and want to eat more and eat bad things. I need to remember it's normal and to stay on track cuz it's OK, and I'm OK. Days like today (losing day) I am so tickled all day long. It's worth the anticipated wait!

Was backed up for a few days and took 3 super diet teas in 2 days for it to work again. I even eat almonds and veggies everyday, but it doesnt help. I must keep healthy and pay attention to my body every day. I will try drinking 1/2 diet tea every other day and see if that keeps things regular. hahaha TMI right!

Only 2 days swim this week but today I'll get some walking in and tomorrow even more.

Its going to be a good weekend!

*things are as easy as you want them to be*

Peace out.

day 94

199 this morn. I've been up and down between 199-200 for about 6 days. Even though the loss seems slow, I've been getting into smaller jeans each week it seems. I'm still averaging -2#/wk.

Struggles are the same - wanting to overeat and binge. Compliments are hard for me to take too.. how do I get over that? I just want to lose and no one to say anything til the end, is that weird?

I keep on track by writing down everything I put in my mouth and keep track of exercise. I just got some resistance bands, so I'm going to add in strength training with those along with aerobic swimming.

I feel good, more energy, smile more, want to do more, it's even ok for me to be seen in public.

*good things happen to those who make it happen*

Peace out.

day 96

197 this morning, yessiree!

I'm still plugging away. Monitoring my food every day, swimming last night felt good, taking my vitamins and drinking tea daily, limiting carbs/cals and staying positive! It's hard work, but it's getting easier. I am comfortable with what I've been eating and I'm not hungry. Although I have days of out of control COE dissorder and my stupid mind tells me I need to eat everything in site and doesnt let me be satisfied. Those days are the hardest and the ones that got me super fat.

todays meal (basically the same meal with slight variations): eggs for brekky, chicken and blue cheese for lunch, small gala apple for snack, chicken and lettuce salad for dinner.

Next week is my monthly dinner ride with the group, its a BBQ place. I searched the menu of the place we're going and they have a chicken ceaser salad on the menu... so all is good! yeah!

*if you look down all the time how can you see what's ahead*

Peace out.

day 99

197 again.. 4 days now.

Ate a few more cals/carbs then intended this weekend - 1935/52 sat 1615/46 sun. No swimming but I did work/walk alot and went dancing Saturday.

I'm always looking at my spreadsheet, seeing the weight go down each week is soooo inspiring! (although I had a bad 10 days inbetween, glad to say that wt is gone!) I think I'm pretty much dialed in. I feel I can eat like this regularly too... so it's a lifestyle change. I'm just trying to do things that will work in the long run, that's what it's really all about.

Jeans are smaller!

It's weird that I'm losing in different areas of my body then i did last time. At this same weight i was wearing different jeans and shirts. It's hell getting older!

*if you stumble, make it part of the dance*

Peace out.

Hello, I'm back...again. I'm not the loser that I want to be, can't seem to control my weight. It goes down but back up in no time. I've started yet again. 225#, weighed in the evening *yikes*. It's the weight I feel my worst at and seems to be my starting weight each time. I've tweeked my diet a bit, lost 19# the first 30 days! I'm on day 36 and down to 202!

The big motivator is the bet I have with 6 other women. We each put in $100, in 3 months the one who lost the higher % gets the pot! Hell yeah! Even if I dont win the pot, we are all winners [losers]! The best $100 incentive I've ever purchased I'm stoked!

Day 59, down #27. It's a long battle and I have another #40-50 before I can even begin to manage maintenance. It will really show what I've learned and made a habit when I get to that point. Right now it's just one day at a time. I'm going to have my ups and downs. I know the bad days with no loss I can get very frustrated. I'm smart enough to know that I cant let the struggles control my frustrations but sometimes I feel to weak to keep trying. The battle is with myself. I'm doing pretty well, but fighting with myself all the time to keep going. I hope I can be successful.

Think positive and the positive energy will be returned.

Day 78. All is well! I have NO regrets from the holiday feast. I brought my own steamed broccoli, sugar free chocolate pudding, and deviled eggs, had some turkey and called it good! Chewed alot of Xtra dessert flavored gum LOL! I walked 5 miles in the morning to ramp up my metabolism then did 30 minutes of kinect dancing after dinner. I am in this to win it!

#34 gone!

Life is good, enjoy the ride.

G'day losers! Day 87, 187# today! Woot! 100 minute walk this morning, and feeling good!

Can I make it to 185 by Saturday morning? That's our final weigh in for the big prize. I would be happy with 187, but looks like I am going to surpass that I think I'm front runner, everyone else has excuses as to why they arent losing.

I havent exercised as much as I wanted to this week due to a new tattoo and all the rain we've had. I got some Gazelle time in, at least 30 minutes a day although I've missed 2 days this week. Gonna Zumba on Wednesday, that's good for a 700 calorie burn!

I'm not cheating, sticking to my eating and exercise plan. I am thinking about what I need to do during the rest of my life maintenance. That's going to be the hard part. I know I cant go from what I'm doing now to eating whatever I want. Food still needs to be monitored and I still need to exercise and keep healthy. I hope I can to it.

If I think it, will it happen?

Peace out...T

Day 92, 186# (39# gone!)

same ol' same ol', low carbs low cals, lots of walking, zumba and I can even sprint now for up to 3 blocks. That's big for me cuz i have a bad knee, out of shape, and well I'm old too lol Im remembering I need to get my heart rate up for 1 min, 40 secs, 20 secs in my walk, thus the sprints. This is helping to burn the fat. Burn baby burn!

No cheats since...hmmmm.... Vegas the end of October! WTH...no cheats? Who is this person?! So unlike me.

Dreaming how I would love to be 150 by June. Seems doable with alot of will power, knowledge and committment.

Still have the Holiday party next week, I've planned for weeks for that cheat! Free classy food and open bar, and free room at the Embassy Suites. Hell yeah!

Neighborhood biggest loser finale tomorrow.... weigh in!

Peace out.

Focus on the big picture!
