Today I officially called the WW experiment a fail for me. It's just not good with my particular food issues though I know it's worked really well for some people (a friend just hit 41 lbs lost with WW and is doing great). I reopened my handy dandy desktop FitDay app today and I'm back to portion control via calorie counting. This maintenance stuff is more work than I ever imagined. I always regained in the past because I just didn't realize how big a commitment this would be. I'm glad every day that I am sticking with this though. I am so worth it :)

Phase 2:
S: (slow start this morning) - small banana & lots of coffee
B: egg, refried beans, spinach or broccoli & salsa
L: giant salad with hummus
S: kefir, cantaloupe
D: cabbage and white beans, veggie burgers
wine if I'm within my calories and exercise

exercise: walk in the sun!, hip exercises

03-20-2011, 09:41 AM
Good for for sticking with it Cyndi! Enjoy your walk in the sun!

Phase 2
B: Omelette with chives (fresh from my new plant!) and dollop of homemade pesto + Chai latte
S: Lemon and poppyseed muffin with peanut butter
S: Yoghurt with apple and orange + protein shake with milk
D: Cod, roasted vegetables and avocado salad

Exercise: got a long 18km run on the cards, hey least it's sunny!
Vitamins : yep!

03-20-2011, 10:33 AM

on SB, I need to eat more vegetables, and I will work on that :)

Went to the beach yesterday with my family - got a terrible sunburn. I used spf 15, but i guess it wasn't a match for the sun. I should have gone to kickboxing this morning, but I can barely move. Hopefully I can get to feeling better in time for this afternoon. I want to get at least some gym time in today.

Zeffryn -- she's on a trip. She posted this in the Thursday's daily thread:

I weighed myself this morning, before my trip begins, but I'm not going to post it because it's so discouraging.

03-26-2011, 10:59 AM
Thanks, Shelf. I was thinking it wasn't like her not to check in daily!

Went out with a girlfriend last night to see an 80's cover band -- they were awesome, haha. I had three beers throughout the course of the night and am making sure to get my water in this morning. Going shopping today, so food selection will likely be limited.


1: 2 scrambled eggs, ff yogurt, coffee
2: salad w/ grilled chicken - no cheese or dressing
3: dinner tbd - probably will grab takeout from somewhere

exercise: walking the outlet mall :)

Have a great Saturday, everyone!
