Well, after 4 days of practically gorging myself with food, I won't bore you with explanations or excuses. I know I did poorly and had entirely toom nay calories for entirely too many days in a row, and I'm here now to fix it!

Today:
  • can of regular ginger ale
  • yogurt (though I only ate half of it--the expiration date is in December, but as I was eating, I looked down and saw a fuzzy patch in the container--EEW!!!)
  • Special K bar
  • reduced-sugar instant oatmeal
  • Health Choice smoked sausage (much like keilbasa) w/low-fat pierogies
Total: about 1100 calories

Tsk Tsk! You KNOW that's not enough calories! I personally have a tendency to "over compensate" by restricting too much when I fear I won;t lose that week...it's so silly! I had to MAKE myself eat yesterday because I wanted to stop when I had reached what ended up being only 500 calories!

I have actually decided to up my "minimum" daily calories to 1500 from 1200 to see how it goes. As long as I keep losing about 2 pounds a week, I'll be okay.

Ugh, that's yucky about the yogurt, jillybean! It's a heck of a way to save on kcals!

1500 kcals isn't an unreasonably high amount, Yogini. I was dropping an average of 2 pounds a week eating between 1500-1600, and figured when it slowed down, I'd still have leeway to drop the kcals further without having to starve myself. Heh, all I need to do now is get back to consistently eating within my limits, and with luck, the weight will start shifting again.

I ate within my allowance yesterday, but still didn't really feel in control. I managed only a 15 minute walk, and that exhausted me. If I don't buck up soon I'm going to have to find myself a doctor and get checked out.

Mon 28/11:

340- 1 cup Optimum Slim cereal, 1 oz seedless raisins, cup 0% milk; 500 ml coffee.
380- A & W Mama burger (no cheese)*; 500 ml water.
140- Starbuck's double tall half-sweet, FF, no-whip, gingerbread latte.
150- 1 cup home-made chicken & veggie soup; 500 ml water.
230- 40 g whole-wheat pita, 3 LC Party Cubes, 2 oz lean ham; 1 l water.
207- 40 g tuna (water-packed), 8 reduced salt Triscuits; 500 ml water.
80- cup 2% plain yogurt.
0- 250 ml green tea.

Total kcals=1527

*Totally not worth it, but I was caught short and it was one of the few things available for which I knew the nutritional info.

Exercise: 2.71 mile walk.

Hehe, normally, I would agree with you completely that 1000-1100 is way too low for me, but having had 4 consecutive days of 2000+ (including a day of over 4000 ), I think I need a little realignment. A couple of low days will help me to balance out the high days and get me back to a semi-normal daily average for the week. I never restrict my calories so much for more than a few days at a time, and "starvation mode" takes at least a couple weeks to fully kick in, so I think I'll survive

Well, I'll not bore you with how much I ate yesterday at a party and wound up having a tummy ache this morning. I'm so mad at myself. Today is a new day though and I'm back on track.

I'm not making any excuses either. Holidays are for enjoying your family & yourself. With all that homemade pasta & meatballs, I could've really gone wild. Hey, that sounds like a new DVD Series: Big Girls Gone Wild. Instead of flashing the camera, they would show me with a face full of food.

Anyhoo:

11/28
1 cup iced gingerbread flavored coffee, black

1/2 bottle water (250ML)
2 MSF breakfast patties
1 Natural Ovens onion bagel
1 wedge laughing cow lite french onion

1 small cup coffee/soy milk
2 tylenol (headache)

1 serving seedless black grapes
2 servings white meat turkey
1-2 servings cranberry stuffing, that I figured out my mom put apricots in too!
2 cups green tea w/lemon ginseng & peach tea

1-2 servings black grapes
2 sticks lowfat string cheese
1 serving (6 whole) low sodium triscuits

2 cups green tea w/mint

1 serving spaghetti w/meat sauce
1 slice garlic bread
1 serving fruit salad


Also, I set myself up to succeed w/the leftovers. I froze them so I can have Grama's sauce through out the winter. The meatballs too. That way I can thaw them one at a time. Otherwise it's too easy to go home tonight, watch MEDIUM & have a bowl of meatballs for dinner.

Also I gave my mother the cheddar & rosemary olive oil triscuits. If they're not in my apt, then I can't have them for dinner!

Good Morning All!!! I lost 2.6 lbs this week. I strayed on Thanksgiving but managed to get right back to business.

11/28/05
210 - Mint Zone Perfect Bar
161 - 4 triscuits & 1 slice cheese
290 - Ham & cheese sandwich
67 - small apple
100 - soy crisps
490 - Chicken & rice
160 - 2 rolls
96 - butter
200 - 5 thin mint cookies
1774 - TOTAL

I have really been drinking too little water and getting no exercise, so I have set a goal this week to drink 72 oz. of water and get 100 min of exercise this week.

Congrats on the awesome loss, Sandi!!!

I ended up only around 950 calories yesterday (thanks to the yogurt incident!), and it looks to be about the same today:
  • Special K bar
  • reduced-sugar instant oatmeal
  • ham w/glaze (a "heat and eat" entree by Tyson's) and 6 large pierogies
Total: about 950 calories (to include bbq sauce for pierogies)--I planned out tomorrow's menu to be about 1275 calories, so no, I'm not starving myself

Posting for Monday. The motto of Monday (unfortunately, considering it's slightly true today too) is: "Mistakes were made."

Breakfast
Slice of pumpkin pie

Snack
Banana
1 oz peanuts
1 oz 2% fat cheddar cheese

Lunch
Shrimp creole with brown rice

Snack
Bag of Famous cookies (this is where it starts...)

Dinner
Double cheeseburger at McDonald's
Medium fries at McDonald's
Fruit and Yogurt parfait at McDonald's

Calories: 2200

Though, in retrospect, it wasn't horrible. I started out good-- until the 290 calorie bag of cookies. Then dinner was just pure cravings. BUT! Half the day was fairly healthy. I ate some fruit. I got vitamin A in the pumpkin (and it was low-fat and low-sugar). Lunch was healthy. And it used to be my 'night out' at McDonald's would be much worse -- double quarterpounder instead of a burger, and large fries, and then junk food at home for dessert. So... well, I'm already in today and it's not super, but, I think it's TOM cravings...

rabidstoat, I would not worry about it; you can't un-eat it, what's done is done. All you can do is make great choices today.

11/29

1 cup iced gingerbread coffee, black
1 Egg McMuffin, no ham
1/2 cup coffee
1/2 cup soy milk

I am about to eat:
2 cups green tea w/mint
6 triscuits (1 serving. they are low-sodium)
2 MSF breakfast patties
1 large can fruit, in its natural juices. but i am draining most of the juice.

1 Lean Cuisine Mac & cheese meal
1 serving leftover white meat turkey
1 serving black grapes
1/2 cup fruit salad (black grapes, pomegranate seeds & pink grapefruit sections)


Ooooh, Dee, a baked tomato??? How do you make that?

Good job on the loss, Sandi! You're doing to so well!

I'm impressed that you gave away your Triscuits, SAPF. I will not eat any today in honour of your sacrifice! I really should scratch them from my shopping list too....

I wish I could remember how awful over-indulging makes me feel before I go OTT. You do right to put it behind you and move on, teahoney.

I'm curious as to the thinking behind the liquid fast, Liz. Is it like a de-tox type of thing?

You're doing really great on the food and exercise fronts, Dee. I second the request for details of the baked tomato.

I've dropped 2 of the 6 pounds I gained, so I'm encouraged by that.

I came in at 1527 kcals yesterday, but I really struggled to survive the night without caving in to munchies. I always was a night-time snacker, but I thought I'd managed to put that behind me. It would seem not.

Tues 29/11:

196- 2 Cinnamon Toast Eggos; 500 ml coffee.
120- Tall FF latte.
0- 375 ml liquorice root & peppermint tea.
150- 1 cup home-made chicken & veggie soup; 500 ml water.
0- 250 ml green tea.
425- 106 g whole-grain bread (toasted), 12 LC Party Cubes, red cabbage, tomato; 1 l water.
640- 8 baked perogies, 4 oz chicken breast wrapped in a bacon slice and baked, steamed broccoli; 1 l water.

Okay, not the healthiest, but definitely more nutritious than I ever used to eat. Fruits! Vegetables! Protein! And a heaping lot of chocolate. Cravings, bigtime.

Breakfast
1 bite of oatmeal (I made it in a dish I hadn't rinsed thoroughly and it tasted of soap, blech!)
Morningstar breakfast patty
LF and sugar free yogurt
1 oz 2% sharp cheddar cheese

Snack
Kozy Shack 'no sugar added' chocolate pudding

Lunch
Healthy Choice barbecue chicken

Snack
Chocolate bar
1 oz peanuts

Dinner
BLT salad at Wendy's with LF honey mustard dressing (which is still pretty high in fat and calories!)
1 cup mandarin orange slices

No exercise. I'm just not able to motivate myself. I'm giving myself a week off.

Calories: About 1650

I ended up not eating my oatmeal yesterday. To make up the calories, I had a small bowl of "light" ice cream last night after dinner I was still below 1000 calories for yesterday, though. Peeking at the scale this morning, I think my water weight from the holiday weekend is finally gone

As for today:
  • Special K bar
  • reduced-sugar instant oatmeal
  • 2 turkey burgers w/swiss cheese on wheat buns
  • instant lo mein noodle side dish
Total: about 1075 calories. I will probably add a little more, though, so I'll update later as necessary
