100 lb. Club - So far, so good

View Full Version : So far, so good

That's all I can say about today, as I climb out of a (mostly thoroughly enjoyable) Christmas eating phase.

Today I ate my healthy breakfast of porridge made with oats and water, sprinkled with flaxseeds.

So far so good.

A lot of us are with you in getting out of the post-holiday eating. Way to get back on track! :)

Thanks, beaka! Go you too!

Lunch: Made a really tasty savour bread and butter pudding, with leftover sandwich crusts, eggs and cheese. Lovely. Really wanted to eat scones while it cooked (a whole 20 minutes!!) but cleaned the back yard and washed some dishes instead. So far, so good.

I did quite well through the holidays, avoiding almost all treats (except one close encounter with a couple of sugar cookies...) but yesterday I acted like a nit wit downed several handfuls of raisins, and then went to a small dinner party where the dinner was not diet friendly AT ALL. Normally I would have been smart and saved calories, but yesterday, I was not smart.

However, I've now RECOMMITED. No more thoughts of maintaining. I'm going to see goal in the year 2011.

Good for you! I am climbing out too. I have not decided yet if I regret the things I ate over the holidays. Sounds pretty stupid, doesn't it? I set myself back 1 to 2 months but, long term I don't think I did any damage. That is, as long as I stop eating like I did last week.

I'll chime in on the so far, so good today and it's after 3 pm.

well done :)

Yay Rosinante! Your doing good. Your doing a lot better than I am.
I have been sooo hungry today. I think we are going to get out of the house a little while and walk around some. That will help to get my mind off of food.
Thank you for your post ~ I'm not alone in this am I?

WTG on getting back on track! I am a little more hungry today than normal, too. I think it's a function of eating foods I don't normally eat (chinese, chocolate) even though they were accounted for in my calorie limits. Oh well, kept myself busy today and did some retail therapy to keep my mind off of it, and eating is back to normal today (and the treats have all been cleaned out)!

Well done everyone whose still in there batting!

I had a nasty run in with some mint chocolates (forgot I had them) but still finished under 1700. I know that's still quite high but at least it's lower than a couple of days ago, and it's logged.

I took a ton of leftover sweet stuff up to church this morning, and they ate it all! Phew!

Yesterday and today have been good for me, too. WTG chickies!

I think you're doing great; keep up the good work.

Hi guys!

Well, this morning has started well. TMI ALERT!!! I had a really good bathroom visit - for the past week my poor system has been so bunged up, and yet I ate more..... not huge, bingey more but more than my system could cope with.
Anyhoo, I've also had a Carblovers Diet compliant breakfast, and when I go and get properly up and dressed now, I'm going to spend time planning a whole week of CLD recipes, so that I'm straightjacketed up for the week ahead.
So far, so good.

Forget about the chocolate mints - that's in the past. Hop back on your plan and you will be fine.

01-03-2011, 07:08 AM
Thanks, BevJ!

Had a sticky moment when I opened up the tins that I'd brought back from church yesterday, and discovered a couple of pieces of my glorious, stupendous coffee and walnut cake. I got as far as getting a cake fork out - but the cake is down the sink.
So far, so good. Yum, this plain black coffee is good ......:S

01-03-2011, 05:02 PM
Phew. Clawed through to the end of the day, nearly. Certainly no more eating opportunites. Brought it in at 1600 calories - could have been better, could have been a whole lot worse.
So far, so good.

Rosinante your doing a Great Job getting back on your program. I was suppose to get back on my plan today but I'm sick. So looking forward to getting back to the weight loss.

01-03-2011, 05:19 PM
With you on the holiday rehab, ugh. I made a decision a long time ago to always keep my ticker accurate, and after this morning's weigh-in (Monday is the day I record it) I had to change it in the wrong direction. Oh, well. Sigh.

Here's to hopping back on board the train! I'm right there with you!

01-04-2011, 09:14 AM
Today I've had a diet-compliant breakfast and a diet-compliant lunch.
So far, so good.

01-04-2011, 02:23 PM
Rosinante, you are doing great getting back on plan!

01-04-2011, 05:40 PM
Hm. Back to 2000 today. Humph.
