Thank you I edited my post and the only thing I didn't account for is the coconut oil. I would have typically used spray butter 0 calories and I do have chicken broth so I am all set for tomorrow. I'm excited to do this tomorrow

Today is a real challenge. I'm up 1.5lbs which I'm sure is water weight and doesn't mean anything but whenever that happens I have this bad habit of saying "SCREW IT! I'm eating a candy bar!"
I have wanted to do that 100 times today. I have not. Had a blueberry smoothie for breakfast and a salad and rotisserie chicken for lunch. I have to prove to myself that I can power through a bad scale day.

I completely understand where you are coming from. Coincidentally, just today I was thinking about the choices of food that I've eaten and how they would affect the scale tomorrow, even though the choices were healthy. For example, I ate some kalamatta olives today (about 12) and thought, "crap, I shouldn't have eaten those because they are high in sodium and they will make the scale go up tomorrow." I had to step back and realize how ridiculous I was being. Am I going to go to the rest of my life avoiding olives because it may affect the stupid scale temporarily? That's when I decided that I'm obsessing too much on this journey and this is NOT how I want to carry on. F*** it. The scale will be up some days, down some days. Maybe from heavy lifting, maybe a little bit more sodium, maybe TOM, ovulation, etc. I'm DONE obsessing and pondering over why the scale is jumping around from day to day. I'm done trying to justify it to make myself feel better. It is what it is and it will be what it will be. I am doing the right things for my body, recovering health, feeling better, losing inches, and in the long run that is all that matters. Whew...got that out! (Bunny, I'm yelling at myself, not you lol)

Day 9

Weight: 206.50 (-1.25)

Food: Raw Foods Day
Meal 1: orange pineapple banana strawberry smoothie (16 oz)
Meal 2: garden salad (romaine lettuce, carrots, cucumber, avocado, olives, tomatoes, green onions) with sweet mustard dressing (2.5 qt bowl)
Meal 3: walnut pate (1/2 cup); marinated vegetables (broccoli, carrots, cremini mushrooms (3 cups)

Exercise: Treadmill - 2.44 miles; Stability Ball Abs; Chalean Extreme Burn Circuit 1 (Round 2 of 4)

Water: 2.50 liters

I.....am......so.....sore lol. My quadriceps are screaming at me right now...."REEEST....I NEEED REEESST" lol. Tomorrow is my rest day thankfully. I had a good eating day. LOADS of fresh vegetables. I was in salad heaven with meal 2 and by the time meal 3 came I just could not finish it all. I saved about 1.5 cups of the marinated vegetables so I can have them with breakfast tomorrow. A good day. As my previous post explained, I've got a new outlook on this weight loss journey and the obsession stops today. I have more important things to focus on than 0.25 lbs of water weight lol.

So far I have been guessing how many calories/ carbs I am getting per day.

How can I figure out how many calories and carbs are in foods like:

1/2 cup raw broccoli
1/2 cup raw cauliflower
2 cups romaine lettuce
2 cups spring mix lettuce
1/2 cup cucumber
1 stick of raw celery
2 stalks of raw kale

I weigh the meat I eat, so I can figure out the protein.

I think I am getting 1200, maybe 1500 calories a day, but I would like to get a better idea.

cleanslate - I posted this link in the "220's-230's" thread but I'll post it here too. You should definitely be able to find calorie counts here:

Hi ladies
I just weighed myself and I'm down 0.7.lbs from where I started this week. With all the drama with my mother-in-law (who was living with us) over with now, hopefully, I can actually get to the gym and workout
