Cathy, no, I think your doing great, keep it up. Is there something that you are eating that might be the problem w/you not losing faster ?? Let me look at what your doing and I'll see if I can see anything. You know if I go over my daily intake by 100 calories even I have a hard time losing too. and if I do this for a few days forget it, the week is shot.

We just have to be really strict you and I. Don't give up, your doing great and remember if you lose 3 lbs a month thats 36 HUGE pounds a year, which will bring you to 169 lbs !! whoohoo, now doesn't that sound better ?

Its not a race okay, so some weight loss is better than none or going up which we have been doing.

Hang in there lady, this is the long hall, and yes you can and will do it...because I'll beat you senseless !!! lolol hehehehe

Cathy, I just glanced over the past few days of what you've been eating.

Now this is only a suggestion. Your eating healthy and wonderful, but the only thing I see is how about lowering your carbs.

I know when I was watching my calories 1400 and low carbing which was 100 or less gms a day, I lost faster.

Try it for one week.......give it all you got and lets see what happens. Just one week lady, I know you can do this, and you know it just might help. But you have to eat your calories ? what are you aiming for : 1400 ? 1500? 1600 ? don't go to low or it will back fire.

Your so worth it okay !!

Hey Leenie, thanks so much for taking the time to look at my stuff!!!! ok sounds like a good idea - I will try less carbs - I'll try anything at this point!

To answer your question, I'm trying to keep it between 1200 to 1400 calories a day. I AM SOOOOOOO HUNGRY! My mom told me earlier this week "you know how you are, you're probably gonna have to eat about 1000 a day to lose any weight" *sigh*

I know I'm hungrier this week bec I'm pmsing but.....oh well, no use in whining.....but it has taken me a couple of months to lose 3 lbs. I know I just started posting the exact calories a month ago, but I was being really good for a month or 2 before that (which a bad day here and there) - since nothing was happening I decided to jot down every calorie.

I'm hanging Leenie! :-) thanks for talking to me about it!

Breakfast:
1 wheat toast - 50 cal
jelly - 50 cal
1 cup 2% milk - 120 cal
2 cups coffee - 100 cal

Lunch:
small burger & fries
caff free diet coke

Supper:
cucumbers

Water: 64 oz

No exercise today

Total Calories: around 1400 today

Thanks Lynnie! I really appreciate all the encouragement!

Lynnie your so cute !

Cathy, I know you can do this, but go slow, sudden changes suck and are hard to stick to, so make suddle changes, like whole wheat products when your going to eat pasta's or breads, brown rice, etc... you know the routine. These carbs don't stick to you like white products do. Try sugar free jelly's in the am. Fresh fruit is wonderful, stay with that. Bananas are great source of potassium but loaded with sugar/carbs and high calories...be careful, how about 1/2 a banana instead of a whole one.

I am just like your mom described, my calories have to be real low or forget it.

You know, I feel like I'm preaching and I hate that so please tell me to shut up if you want, I won't get offended :s: :lol:

Good luck !!! Lets all be losers at the end of next week :)

cathyxxx
09-19-2003, 03:50 PM
Leenie - I would NEVER tell you to shut up!
You are not preaching at all girlie!
I appreciate all the input - I really do - besides I'm asking ain't I!!!

ok I got to get out of here and get to the Homecoming Football game tonight - yikes - a million things to do and I am sooooooo tired. hope to get my second wind driving home!

hugs!
