I like to write it down as I eat it, to keep track since certain things are easy to forget, especially if I WANT to forget them.

It's also a good thread to get recipe or food ideas from, as well as to ask the other members, "What am I doing wrong? What am I doing right?"--everyone is always glad to help.

You can do one message every day, or several days in one message. That's up to you. Welcome & please feel free to join in!


Rabidstoat, posting and journaling the bad stuff is really hard for me, but I'm going to join you on that resolution. The thing I've noticed for me (and, frankly, for others) is that that when I'm not eating well, I don't post and that's the time I need to post even more so I can get that wonderful, inspiring feedback. Even a tongue lashing from Jilly can be motivating so I'm going to suck it up and post even when I don't want to.

pumpkin muffin (3)
egg white (0)
sharon's low gluten mix (6)

Stomach still flip-floppin'. I'm blaming the choc donuts I had last night.

On the upside: I weighed in yesterday at 219! Of course, with being sick, how much of that is just lost water weight? :sigh: still, it was a brief thrill. LOL Will weigh in again later and update my tracker.

B: 1 toasted bagel with 1 TBS light margarine; 2 cups applesauce
L: 1.5 c chicken noodle soup; 1 slice plain toast; 1 cup applesauce
D: tentatively planning on a salad with light italian dressing; 2 slices garlic bread and 1/2 c spaghetti with 6 meat balls and 1/2 c marinara sauce.
Beverages: so far-20 oz water
Exercise: 1 hour Tae Kwon Do this evening

I'm joining y'all again. I've been doing great so far today. It's so amazing how easy this is when you plan. If only all my days would go this smooth I'd be healthy in no time flat
Breakfast
Oatmeal with artificial sweetener.
Morning snack
Yogurt
Lunch
Lean Cuisine Sante Fe rice and beans
Jumbo salad with fat free italian
Afternoon snack
1 cup. sugar free cheesecake pudding
Calories so far: 664
I'm not sure what I'm having for dinner as it is Jeff's night to cook. Since I'm trying to stay under 2000 calories I'm not worried about whatever he cooks. I'm focusing more on veggies and portion control with my dinners.
Exercise: 30 minutes with Maya when I get home. I bet she kicks my butt again.

I like to post my bad days not to get beat up, I've always responded poorly to people lecturing me about food (I swear I get this from my mother), but just to write it down. It's harder for me to pile multiple bad days on top of one another when I'm actually looking, really looking, at what I eat.

Monday

Breakfast: Oatmeal, soy sausage patty, and a No Pudge brownie
Lunch: Amy's frozen cheese enchilada dinner
Snack: 1 oz peanuts (I love my new electronic food scale!)
Dinner: Honey Ginger chicken and green beans, over brown rice

Calories: About 1430
No exercise. I've been just awful about exercise, I need to remotivate, I think all this time off work has made me lazy.

Oops! Hope I didn't give the wrong impression. Just joking about Jilly and the tongue lashing. Should have said her tongue-in-cheek lashings, which are always supportive and amusing. Sorry if I gave you the idea that anyone would lecture you on food--nobody is into that at all.

Once upon a time, I started the weekly journal buddy thread because I had read somewhere that people who record their "eats" on a daily basis are more likely to stay on plan. I have to admit I'm amazed at how the thread has thrived and prospered, even during difficult times such as the traditional eating holidays. When I've been on my own self-imposed exiles, someone's always stepped in to keep the thread alive.

One thing that makes the thread successful is the idea that everyone here is human and its not always possible to adhere to plan. Some people disappear when they don't feel comfortable recording their eating misadventures. But we've always encouraged members to bravely venture here and admit to having veered dangerously from plan. This often results in posts that have become known as "food porn". Accompanying these posts is usually a plea by the poster for a swift kick in the butt to help them get back on track. I volunteered to be and became jokingly (and affectionately, I hope ) known as the chief butt-kicker, but only on the condition that I be given the same swift kick in return when I need it.

Nobody here lectures (who of us is in the position to?) and its understood that any requested "tongue-lashings" are given out of support and caring

That's not to say there isn't a from time to time, especially when a few regular posters have made the declaration that comforting responses of "don't worry about going off plan ~ you can start again tomorrow" doesn't help them in the least. Let's face it, if we tell ourselves we can start over again tomorrow every day, we'll never get ahead, will we?

January 2
English muffin (toasted) sprayed with "I Can't Believe its not Butter" spray
Large mug of tea
Beef/lentil soup with carrots
Bottled water
President's Choice Shepherds Pie (from the "Blue Menu" ~ meaning lower fat and calorie and made with extra lean ground beef), corn
Bottled water
Tim Horton's coffee (with cream)
One Timbit
Bottled water
Carnation light hot chocolate.

Exercise: Trail walking (through the slushy snow) with the dog.

Back to work tomorrow and back to counting points!!

Here, here, Jilly!

Obviously, I'm one of the members who comes and goes from this particular thread Mostly it's laziness (I wish you could copy and paste from fitday ) But I'll also freely admit to having days when I wouldn't want to tell anyone what I'd eaten!

It's a wonderful thread..and I'm so glad you started it!!
Thank you!

Happy New Year everyone! Welcome back to all of you that we haven't seen for a while. I didn't have the greatest weekend, I guess I was still reveling in the 55.4 lbs, but I'm back on track today.

My bad news today is that Thursday will be my last day of PT I'm so sad. He let me stay for 5 months when I only had an Rx for 2. My knee is really better so I knew this day would come.

PT has really been a great support person for me. Even though I'll still see him everyday when I'm down in the gym, I'm going to miss our time together. Now, unless we actually make the effort to get together, we won't.

I guess we'll see what happens. I'll be ok.

You're dead right, Sheila. I tend to knock off posting when things are going poorly for me, yet that's precisely when I need the accountability. So, I'm with you. I don't usually make NY Resolutions, but I'll make an exception and come here regardless of how I've done.

Hope your tummy settles down soon, Laura. And lay off those doughnuts, okay?

Good to have you back, Dawnyal! I'm glad things are going well.

to the new additions!

6 litres of water, SAPF? Take care you don't knock your electrolyte balance out of kilter.

I love that you're our , Jilly. I'm one of those who finds the responses you mentioned more of a hindrance than help. I'm quite the expert at denial and self-sabotage already, and I deffo don't need any further encouragement. Ahem... is now a good time to report my 5 pound gain over the holidays...?

Hey, Beth? How about your offering to take him out as a thank you for all his help? You never know, if you ask him nicely, he might be more than happy to continue supporting you....

Nice to see you again, Sandi! Lots of us are knuckling down after a period of excess, so lets all do it together.

I've been [deliberately] less stringent about tracking my kcals. I want to see how I do this week making careful choices and limiting the sizes of portions. I'm still trying to find something sustainable; slavishly counting every kcal simply isn't working for me right now, but I don't want to abandon all control.

I didn't eat a great deal yesterday, but had lots of water and green tea to lubricate my sore throat.

Mon 2 Jan:
  • 500 ml coffee.
  • 1 slice Genuine Bavarian Organic Whole Rye Bread, 2 oz lean roast ham, 3 Laughing Cow Party Cubes, red cabbage, cucumber.
  • Raw carrots, tomatoes.
  • 16 oz dark roast coffee, cup skimmed milk.
  • 90 g whole-grain spelt bun, large beef hotdog sausage, mustard, hot peppers, asparagus, cup sweet corn.

Exercise: 40 minute walk
