And of course I didn't exercise after work...I decided to take a day off. I'm horrible about doing anything strenuous in the evening!!!!

Monday

Breakfast
Oatmeal
Breakfast patty

Lunch
Smart Ones meal (somthing pasta and vegetable-ish)
Single-serving fruit cocktail
4 thin mints

Snack
1 oz peanuts
Apple
Candy grazing (estimated 40 plain M&Ms, 1 peanut M&M, 1 tootsie roll)

Dinner
4 oz tilapia fillet, in a honey soy marinade
Broccoli and rice casserole
Granola bar

Exercise
30 minutes exercise bike

I'm still in serious craving mode, and it's amazing how thoughtlessly one can graze through 175 calories worth of candy. And Girl Scout cookies came out today. I'm trying to restrict myself to 4 thin mints a day (allegedly 1 serving) as my only sweet, but that didn't work that well today.

Good job on the stats, Bailey. :)

lizzard_h, I go through stretches of days where I'm not hungry at all. I used to worry about these. Was I getting enough calories? Enough nutrients? Would my metabolism slow? Was I becoming anorexic-minded? Well, nothing bad has ever come of it for me. I still tend to eat 1000-1200 calories even when I'm not that hungry. And, after a few days like this, I get hungry again. It's all counterbalanced by days I have intense cravings, or am just plain hungry. So now if I'm not that hungry I just don't eat that much, but try to make my choices particularly nutritious. As evidenced by an earlier mini-binge this week, I always get my appetite back eventually. :)

18.5 pts (no wonder I'm so hungry today!!)

Scuttle, I think seeing the scale get closer to 159 has gotten me so excited it's curbed my appetite. But I know that craving cycle is just around the corner for me so I'm just trying to take advantage of this moment. I love girl scout cookies but they're like crack-cocaine to me!!:lol: I can't stop until they're all gone. As bad as I wanted to I didn't order any this year. STAY AWAY FROM THAT CANDY DISH!!! :D Last time I had a candy bar I made a deal with myself -- I was only allowed to eat it if I would do an extra 45 minutes of exercise to burn some of it off. That way I ate it guilt-free and really pushed myself during my workout.

No exercise. That's bad, but I woke up at 3 am and had a long day and am tiiiired. I can't believe I haven't been hungrier than this, since I've been up 18 hours already. I was starving for lunch about 10:30... but since I'd had breakfast at 4, I figured that was reasonable.

Yes,Lizzard, it was quite a scene. And I STILL went to bed hungry and I STILL woke up hungry. Hopefully, it is because I just started exercising and will ease off (did I mention I was also up 1.5 from yesterday?)

Exercise = 0
Weekly Alcohol = 13

This is NOT GOOD!!!

ok - 3 days left in the week = 23 X 3 = 69
69-20.5 = 48.5

I think I am going to switch to 19-24 this week, so...

48.5 + 7 = 55.5

55.5/3 = 18.5

OK, so technically it is cheating a little, but I was not making it. I don't tink it is the points so much as a mental thing - so I am going to try a few weeks at 19-24. If I can do that, I will try for 18-23.

Wow. I have a box of Thin Mints on the shelt at work, candy dishes throughout the office, ice cream in the freezer at home, and I wasn't hungry for sweets today. I don't get how I can be so ravenous for sweets one day but not the next. Anyway. On the low side of calories today for a change due to reduced hunger. The PB&J was pure comfort food.
