Hi, folks! Anyone remember me? Yes, I've been away and was accompanied by my inner who worked overtime to ensure that I'd overindulge in the "eat, drink and be merry" categories. Problem is, the "merry" part of that equation left quickly but the "eat and drink" parts stayed and have made their presence known on the scales!

So, here I am, bending at the waist and awaiting the proverbial arse kicking I deserve! I can't even come to the conclusion that I'm one of those people who can participate in a healthy lifestyle as a rule, but loses all control during vacations and holidays, because when I was losing the bulk of my weight I was through all such occasions. No, its definitely complacency and a belief that I can "lose it later". Well, I've been losing and gaining the same 10-20 lbs. now for over two years (and that's without even reaching goal yet)! Its definitely time to get a grip and stop this yo-yo existance and complete what I set out to do in 2002 (AND to maintain that goal!!)

I'm happy to see this thread has thrived in my absence and is still drawing new posters (I took a peek at your progress pic, Newfiedarling ~ you look wonderful!!) and I'd like to publicly acknowledge those who sought me out by private message and convinced me to drag my sorry butt back here (as well as those I solicited advice from and who came through admirably). I respect and appreciate you all tremendously! Ahhhh, its good to be back!

Oh yeah, food posting...I shall do that at the end of the day (at the end of a totally "on plan" day, I should say!)

to the "Buddy" thread, Dee! Good to have you here at last!

Oh, it's grand to have you back, Jilly! You always make it so difficult for us to kick you up the bum because you do that to yourself, and get back on track before we get the chance! I feel cheated!

So, all I can lamely say is, DON'T DO IT AGAIN!

Seriously though, I'm so pleased to see you taking charge. I've just re-committed to getting to a healthy weight myself, after a month of maintaining due to smugness and self-satisfaction with my success so far. To be sure, I'm proud of myself for dropping 52 pounds. I'm also ready to work off the next 52.

You can do this! We can do this! So, LET'S GET TO IT!

Welcome Dee And welcome back jillegal

I don't know if I need an asskicking. I am just listless as all get up and have not even been keeping track of my challenge points very well. I just don't care!!! Not having a working computer and being able to post when ever I like has really bummed me out. It seems like a really lame thing to whine about but I really miss posting. You help keep me motivated. I can't really complain about life. I love my new job and seem to be handling things as they come up in the rest of life. I am stressed about the financial realities of not having worked all last year due to illness and the present uncertainty with my medical stuff but none of that adds up to listless...it is just life! I have no idea why I am at this place except maybe my old bugaboo, fear of success.

At least I have gotten back on track with the LMT and have been exercising regularly again. I am planning to do a second one between mid November and the end of the year. I guess my only commitmnet right now is to get to the library EVERYDAY to post and do some form of exercise daily whether LMT related of not.

and to all

Denise

Welcome back, Sarge!

Ended up making smoothies last night (frozen strawberries, bananas, skim milk, and carb-smart vanilla ice cream), so my calorie total jumped up to about 1700.

As for today...
  • Carnation instant breakfast w/skim milk
  • instant oatmeal
  • Special K bar
  • sandwich (Wonder light bread, ham, provolone cheese, miracle whip, honey mustard, and lettuce)
  • Smartfood popcorn
  • baked chicken breast w/either an instant noodles or instant mashed potato side (we'll see what's appealing when I go to cook it)
Total: should be around 1400 calories (assuming no more smoothies tonight!)

Not as good nutrition today. I had healthy snacks planned, and healthy dinner, but TOM meant I wanted chocolate and gooey stuff.

Breakfast
Oatmeal
Egg beater omelet with veggies


Snack
McDonald's Fruit and Yogurt Parfait

Lunch
Healthy Choice Mesquite Chicken dinner
Salad with lots of veggies and about 2 oz chicken breast, in LF dressing

Snack
1/2 a dark chocolate bar

Dinner
Small size Philly Cheesesteak

No exercise, I had planned off day. And the cheesesteak wasn't so bad, about 500 calories and not good nutrition, but I didn't get my usual (which is a large with extra cheese, and about twice as many calories -- and I usually eat chips with it and a fully sugared drink).

Calories: 1520

Ended up only eating half my chicken and less than a serving of noodles for dinner and no smoothies, so my calories for yesterday ended up only being about 1200.

Wednesday:
  • instant oatmeal
  • Special K bar
  • pizza (hopefully plain cheese--managers are buying for us since we have a meeting thing this afternoon)
  • turkey ham and instant mashed potatoes
Total: about 1350 calories
