Oh well, I'll let it go this time, Howie, but if I don't have a good report at the end of today, it's no holds barred! :s: (By the way, did the cheeseburger, fries and coke live up to your craving expectations or did you get heartburn and feel like crap afterwards? ;) ) As for you, Ms Sandi, :coach: Enough with the "will be back soon" - GET BACK HERE NOW!!

Well it was good. However I could not believe the amount of salt that was in it. Plus it was so greasy. It did have a good taste but I could not help thinking how many of those things I used to shove in and not think a thing about it. It was eye opening and something I will not buy for another good long while. One thing was good I did not stop at Mcdonalds then Burger King and then Wendys. That's what I used to do. I really had a problem.

It's the drive-thrus, I tell ya! I mean if you actually had to park the car, get out, go in and stand in line to order, do you think you'd be as likely to succumb to fast food? As much as fast food outlets have contributed to the obesity rate, I have to believe the "convenience" of drive-thrus has compounded it. Well, I guess I'm glad you enjoyed it, but I'm even happier that it made you reflect on a past you have no intention of re-visiting! :)

P.S. - Good job on not letting it snowball into a triple fast-food threat ;)

I've been trying to eat 3 meals and at least 2 snacks per day. Most days I am happy just to get in 3 meals. I am very bad about skipping meals. Have made improvment the last two weeks however. Hope that posting here will help me get even better. Not worrying about too much about what I eat at this time, just trying to get used to eating frequently. As long as I buy good food, I'll eat good food. Right? Anyway, here's what I ate today.

6/8
Breakfast: 1 cup Life cereal with 1/3 vanilla soymilk and 1 medium sliced banana

Lunch: HUGE salad made with 3 cups romaine and boston lettuce, 6 super thin slices of turkey breast, 1/4 cup shredded cheese, 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, (too much) low-fat ranch and french dressings.

Dinner: Turkey breast (6 super thin slices) and 2 slices low-fat pepperjack cheese sandwich on white bread (Natural Ovens Bakery Better White Bread. I love the bread made by this company. Like homemade! They make an awesome whole wheat bread with ground flax seed in it too. Natural ingredients: unrefined and low glycemic index and "good fats". I love their ww bagels, cookies, and granola bars. Plus they are made by a company here in Wisconsin!)

Snack: two 'smores (been eating too many 'smores lately), couple of marshmallows and stray pieces of chocolate.

Beverages: 2 cups vanilla soy milk, 1 1/2 cup choc. soy milk (first time having soy milk. actually quite tastey), 4 (500 ml)16.9 oz bottles water, 20 oz peach flavored calorie free carbonated beverage

Not too bad of a day. Need to get more fruits and vegetables.

I'm not missing, just tired of thinking about food all the time.

The scale has not been nice to me, sitting at one spot. My clothes felt looser at first, my body felt a little sleeker, but no reward on the scale. I know, I am usually the one to say "You can't base your self-worth on a scale reading". But WTF??? I did, and continue to do, everything the nutritionist said to do. She said we would be getting some weight off me quickly. I paid $100 I absolutely DID. NOT. HAVE. Only to stay the same weight for 3 f:censored:ing weeks???!?!?!?! I don't weigh in until tomorrow, but I'm pretty sure it's going to be the same. If it's not, you have my grand high permission to give me an old-school Jilly-style ***-kicking.

I'm tired of reading food labels & tired of writing down everything that goes into my mouth. I'm tired of fighting fitday over half a f:censored:ing hamburger bun. I'm tired of explaining to my mother that sugar = carbs, so no I can't have whatever dessert concoction she has cooked up this week. And she just won't quit!!! Ice cream, pound cake, pudding whisked into Cool Whip, fruit, milkshakes, etc. But that's a WHOLE other show, Ricki.

So, I am here. Check out my eating at the link in the bottom of my posts. :kickcan:

I am feeling for you.......really.....the constant effort is tiring and demanding, and its particularly demoralising when the scales are not playing ball. What can I say? Go by how you feel, not by the scale. Throw the scale away. You are doing your body so much good by eating healthily..........

As to the measuring. It is perfectly possible to lose weight without all the measuring - I'm not a measuring kind of gal, and I do just fine on that. I stick to some key principles, and it works for me. I do submit my consumption for Jill's scrutiny on this thread - and that really helps keep me on the straight and narrow....

Just hang on in there, keep doing what you are doing, and think of all the health benefits.....and the loosening clothes.....

anything that wasn't nailed down :eek:. I have had a rough 2 days. I have been doing well until the day before yesterday. I am commited today though :) ! I use to have things in the house that I would allow my daughter to eat, but I couldn't. This morning I decided, if it is unhealty for me, it is unhealthy for her :nono:! I just now gave all of it to my neighbor. I weigh in tomorrow and I don't think I am gonna like what the scales says :no:, but what else can I expect when I go off of my plan?

Aimee, my dear - believe me I know how it is to be fed up with obsessing over food (I've been at this FOREVER you know and am not yet where I want to be). I know what its like to hit plateaus that make you want to jump off a cliff (but you're probably right about your clothes being looser - no doubt you've lost some inches). Claire said it best: Your health is improved by eating well and while your body is not co-operating right now, it HAS to catch up to what you've been doing eventually - it just has to!

Yes, I'm damn sick of writing down everything I eat, sick of planning each and every meal, even sick of coming to this forum sometimes (even though that's momentary as there's always something here that ends up being of compelling interest ;) ) BUT, its something we have to do - at least until we've got it under control and then (hopefully) we can be like Bev and Julie and do it all naturally without having to obsess. I can't wait for that day, but in the meantime I'm going to take a few minutes out of my day to record what I eat, a few minutes to read nutritional labels and a few minutes to plan my meals. That still leaves about 23-1/2hrs daily to live my life. C'mon, you KNOW there's a lot more going on in our lives than doing THIS!

As for your Mother...hmmm, are you a child who depends on Mummy to supply your food? Do you have to eat what she puts in front of you? Can you put your lips together and form the words "No, thanks" when she offers desserts? You're a grownup now (chronologically if not emotionally :p), so stop trying to change your Mummy's ways and be responsible to your adult self. So there - is your butt stinging?

P.S. - if you have a loss tomorrow, I expect an apology for all the whining :s:

Watch out Jill’s on a roll.

My little fast food blunder has shown me how easy it would be to slip back into that life style. The cravings are back and now I'll have to fight them for the next week. No more fast food burgers for me.

I know writing it all down is a pain but it sure does help to keep you on track. The way I see it is if I am not obsessing about food and writing it down and eating healthy then I'm obsessing about food and going to drive thru’s and eating unhealthy. Plus obsessing about why I can't lose weight. Either way we obsess about food. So I'll stick with the writing it all down.

I don't know how any of you get along with FitDay; you must have an incredible amount of patience. I tried it for a few days but quickly pegged it as one of the most frustrating sites I've ever come across. :rolleyes: I keep a write-on-wipe-off sheet on the fridge and transfer the details to a couple of Excel spreadsheets. I make a lot of use of CalorieKing (http://www.calorieking.com/foods/), (thanks, Gardenwife!) and their pocket guide, and really, I spend very little time actually recording stuff.

Weds 08/06:

Breakfast: Banana shake.
Lunch: Home-made chili-con-carne, 1 cup rice, green salad.
Dinner: 4 oz home-made sirloin burger in 84 g bun, green salad.
Snacks: ½ cup 2% cottage cheese, 2 thin slices ham, 8 Wheatine crackers.

Right there with you, Howie. I rarely have much good to say about Micro$oft, :rolleyes: but their spreadsheet proggy makes it so easy to keep track. And the best thing is, I can easily customise it to calculate what I want it to: kcals, fat grammes, miles walked, etc..

Thurs 09/06:

Breakfast: Banana shake, 3 thin slices ham.
Lunch: Home-made chili-con-carne, 1 cup rice, green salad.
Dinner: 3½ oz chicken breast, 1½ cups rice, ½ cup peas.
Nibbles: None. ( :smug: Resisted the temptation to welly into hubby's pretzels.)
Drinks: 500 ml coffee, 2½ litres water, 355 ml tin diet pop, 750 ml bottle Henkell Trocken sparkling wine. Well, it is a water-based beverage, and grapes are a fruit! :halffull:

Total kcals: 1598 (not incl. free veggies)

Today was an OK day. I was grumpy! Probably because tomorrow is Friday and my weekend starts. I work all weekend! I hate the weekends. Spend all week putting the house in order but by Saturday night my family has it trashed again! ARRRRGGGGH! My major frustration! I don't expect it to be perfect: I expect the toys picked up, dishes washed, dining/kitchen room floors swept and the table wiped off. That's it. Anyway, here's my food for today.

Breakfast: 1/2 cup cracklin oat bran/1/2 Kashi Lean with vanilla soymilk. (Vanilla soymilk really rocks on cereal!)
Snack: 1 large golden delicious apple with peanut butter/cream cheese dip. (Snack was shared with my childlings. I ate about 1/2 the apple.)
Lunch: Oops!
Snack: 20 Kashi multigrain snack crackers
Dinner: 1 1/2 cup one pot pasta. Whole wheat rotini with marinara and 7 Italian style meatballs. 3 chedder-garlic mini biscuits
Beverages: 6 oz vanilla soymilk, 18 oz choc. soymilk, 3 500ml bottles water, 1 20 oz peach flavored sparkling water

Claire: Thank you for reminding me why I am here, above all. The health reasons. That is why I went to see the dietician in the first place. I have a scale here but never use it. I always weigh in @ the gym, keeps me honest & then my weight doesn't fluctuate & drive me crazy.

Beth: bowwww chikka wakka chikka, tell us more about the PT. ;)

Jilly: I will take that *** kicking now. I lost 2# since my last weigh in. Thank you for putting it in perspective about the time. I have plenty of time, it just feels pointless when you're not seeing any results.

As for my mom, ever since my temp job ended last month (no $), coupled w/my stepfather being deployed, we eat together a lot. She hates being alone, and eating alone. She is just trying to be nice, but at the same time, she is emotional eating b/c she misses her husband and would like an eating buddy I think. I ALWAYS say no to her & remind her that what she is offering is full of sugar & sugar = carbs. Also, you have to remember, this is the woman who congratulated me for losing 50# & getting down to 280 by offering me brownies. And who asks guests if they want something & plops it on their plate before waiting for an answer from that person. And then gets mad if that 7 year old person won't finish all their food. :mad: :rolleyes: So, in conclusion, I am sorry for whining.

Howie: Yeah, I know. If I'm going to obsess about something it might as well be healthy eating.

Today:
1 can diet lemon pepsi

2 eggs, scrambled w/chives & tomato
1 low carb garden vegetable tortilla w/2 Veggie Slices, pepper jack flavor

Hi everyone, I have PT today at noon, I feel ridiculous acting like a high-schooler over him. :)

He is cute, and I just love when he streches me out on the mat... :flame:

Anyway, so I can focus on work until noon, here's my food from yesterday... weigh-in's tomorrow.

6/9/05

1 - 3 egg whites
3 - WW muffin
2 - coffee
7 - bacon (there was a breakfast meeting, the smell got to me)
5 - zone mint bar
1 - chocolate
2 - coffee
2- turkey
2 - ww toast
2 - cheese
1 - mayo
5 - ice cream
32 points - 5 over for the day

Have a great day and weekend everyone, we're off to Lancaster, PA for a "Day out with Thomas" (the Tank Engine). I'm a little concerned about Lancaster, I love Whoopie Pies (round Devil Dog thingy) and there's alot of food, but I'll be ok.

Yesterday we had our office potluck breakfast, and I knew the menu ahead of time. So I planned, knowing there'd be bacon and sweet rolls and all sorts of things that would tempt me to eat more than I should. So I ended up eating a lot of little bits of things -- a few bites of grits, a few bites of eggs, only two slices of bacon (rather than the six I could easily have scarfed down). And I ate fairly light the rest of the day. I was rather surprised that it came in under 1800 calories, but I'm not complaining.

Tip: Cantalope goes a long way in filling a person up before the eggs and bacon come out.

As to Fitday, I use it and haven't had much trouble with it. I use it because I need to be able to access it from both work and home, or I'll forget and put it off and not do it. I may look into programs for my PDA, but for now, Fitday works. Plus, I can link it for folks, like you or my doctor, to help keep me "honest".

Breakfast:

(office potluck breakfast -- LOTS of temptation)
half a salmon patty
2 slices of bacon (boy, did I want more!)
1 slice of turkey bacon
two bites of scrambled eggs
grits
cantalope
orange juice

Lunch:
chicken noodle soup
salad with green leafies, spinach, raw veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery), garbanzo beans, and a bit of lowfat ranch dressing

Dinner:
Meat and Mud (lean hamburger, onions, celery in gravy over egg noodles)
sauteed mushrooms
raw nibbles (carrots celery)

Snacks throughout the day:

Drinks:
water, mint tea

Calories:
1651

Exercise:
8 blocks walking, 3 stairs up, 2 stairs down

Welcome Cecily - great first "eats" posting (now keep it up!) :s:

Be kind in your response, SAPF :p

Very good "first day of summer vacation" eats for you, Apryl! ;)

Good job everyone else (nothing for me to rant over) :)

As for me...it was an extremely stressful day. Didn't do the best nutritionally (veggie, fruit was MIA), but I doubt I "went over". Had to estimate my points because I didn't personally prepare anything I ate - didn't have much variety to choose from, either. Didn't have any water until early evening, but then guzzled a gallon or so (we're having crazy heatwave weather here and its only early June - in Canada no less!! Must be the work of the :devil: ! As for exercise - zilch (no opportunity, honest) :^:

Breakfast: coffee with cream (1 point for approx. 1tbsp cream)
Lunch: cafeteria tuna salad sandwich on whole wheat (bread - 4 points, tuna - 2 points, mayo (presumably) - 2 points), diet Coke (0 points)
Dinner: cafeteria turkey sandwich on whole wheat (bread - 4 points, turkey - 2 points, butter? margarine? - 2 points), diet Snapple (1 point)

I should and could work a bit more calcium in there too. I make up a banana shake for my breakfast with 0% milk and/or plain yogurt to work fruit and calcium into my diet. I don't take milk in tea or coffee, and I certainly can't drink it on its own. :barf: I really like the shake as it's quick and easy and surprisingly filling.

Cecily, You're not weird in my book, broccoli is my favourite too!!
If I'm eating on a dinner plate or a medium sized lunch plate, half the plate is broccoli (2-3 cups) and the starch and meat take up the other two thirds.

We probably eat broccoli for dinner three time a week...love it..and the kids do too which is so awesome!

Just thought I'd let you know there's more of us out there...:lol:

Food for Sunday 6/12

breakfast: 1 slice whole wheat bread with 2 TBS peanutbutter

snack1-nothing

lunch: Kashi Go Lean "oatmeal raisin cookie" bar (first time I had one of these-YUM! and very very filling with all that protein and fiber)

snack2-nothing

dinner: 1 brat w/bun (ketchup, onions), 1 turkey hotdog w/bun (ketchup, onions), 1/2 cup potato salad, 1 cup baked beans. 2 roasted marshmallows

beverages: 20 oz sprite, 12 oz low fat vanilla soymilk, 2 20 oz bottles of water (so far)

Still ignoring the fruits and veggies and it isn't because I don't have any in the house, I do and lots! Salad, baby carrots, broccoli, celery, raisins, apples, oranges, grapes, fruit cups and applesauce. I have no excuses, I just haven't been eating them! Tomorrow I will eat at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables. YUM!

Exercise: Today is my day off from exercise. Although I did work 6 1/2 hours today, on my feet and walking the whole time. (I'm a server and Sunday mornings are busy, busy, busy!!!) I'll have to wear my pedometer next Sunday, I'm curious how many steps I get at work.
I miss my daily exercise though-can't believe I am saying that!
Tomorrow I have Tae Kwon Do (yay!). Only 15 days until I test for my orange belt! I am so excited!

We'll hold you to that, Laura! :) The instructor in my circuit training class challenged us to eat 5 servings this weekend (she said that includes 1.5 cups of vegetables--lettuce doesn't count) so I've been scarfing down the good stuff. And enjoying it, too. This time of year is a great one to get fresh fruits and veggies. Did discover this weekend that it's a lot easier to get the fruits in than it is to get the veggies in, especially if lettuce doesn't count.

I love them all, but why oh WHY the need to feed?
Because food is a time of community and caring, nourishing the heart and soul as well as the body. It's when it gets out of balance that it can become a problem.
