Another week, a fresh start! Welcome to the new ladies. I was wondering where you got your digital food scales? How much could I expect to pay for one?

To the ones we've lost over the weeks: it's never too late to come back! I love this thread b/c it gives me new meal ideas, and it keeps me honest. Don't be too afraid of Jill, she yells because she loves! :drill: And I wouldn't have her any other way.

Let's have a great week everyone!

10 oz coffee
8 oz light soy milk

Well, not off to a good start, today is already shot, I really don't even know what all I've eaten :o , I did buy several kinds of fruits and veggies at the store, so tomorrow should be a lot better.

Exercise isn't going to happen, as I sprained my toe this morning (don't think it's broken). I dropped a big glass candle on it :(, and now the whole underside is purple.

SAPF: I've had my Salter digital scales for over 10 years and brought them with me when I moved here. I didn't buy the cheapest on the market but I've used them almost every day (even when not dieting) and they are still as accurate as the day I got them, so were well worth it. I doubt they even make the ones I have any more, but I found this link: http://www.chefsresource.com/digital-kitchen-scales.html.

And http://www.americanweigh.com/ has digital scales from $20.


Mon 13/06:

Breakfast: Banana shake ( cup plain 2% yogurt, cup 0% milk, 6 oz banana, dash vanilla extract).
Lunch: 2 thin slices ham and 1 oz cheddar on 68 g whole-grain bread, green salad with 1 tblsp. sliced almonds.
Snack: Pea cup-a-soup, 4 Wheatine crackers.
Dinner: 3 oz chicken breast, 3 potato patties, 1 cup peas, cup strawberries, 60 ml Safeway Light Whipped Topping.
Drinks: 500 ml coffee, 2 litres water.

Total kcals: 1333 (not incl. free veggies)

Exercise: 1.26 mile walk. Not nearly enough. :tired:

Thanks for starting this week's thread, SAPF (even if you've removed the element of fear by suggesting I have a heart) :p

Sorry about the toe, CassandraA. Hope it heals quickly. On a happy note though, I see you've bought fruits and veggies!! I have to admit I've wanted to ask you for the longest time where the produce is in your diet! ;)

Claire, substituting couscous for fries is certainly :angel: worthy!

Everyone else - looking good! :smug:

Tuesday June 14, 2005

A pretty good day, got in my fruits and veggies but I've been in a snacking mood all day; feeling like I want to eat even though I'm not hungry and its been driving me nuts! So drinking the water like crazy and avoiding the kitchen. May have been brought on by the stress of needing to have my car worked on and I'm worried about how much it will cost and if I'll be able to cover the repairs on my small budget.

Anyway, here is my food and exercise for today:

Breakfast: 1 cup Kashi Go Lean cereal w/ 1/3 cup vanilla soymilk, 1/4 cup raisins, 1 banana

Lunch: 1 Kashi Go Lean waffle w/ 2 tablespoon calorie free maple syrup, 2 bananas, 1/2 cup diced peaches in lite syrup

Dinner: 2 1/2 cups chicken, broccoli, onion, red pepper, mushroom, water chestnut and carrot stir fry with 1 1/2 cup plain ramen noodles, 1 1/2 cup romaine lettuce topped with 1/3 fat free chedder, 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, 3 tablespoons calorie free Bacon Ranch dressing

Snacks: 1 orange, 5 Dove chocolates, 10 Kashi Original 7 Grain Crackers, 1 Kashi Trail Mix granola bar

Beverages: 80 oz water, 20 oz vanilla soymilk

Exercise: 8 Minute Moves, 30 minutes Tae Bo, 25 minutes Yoga

Oh SAPF, you're incorrigible :rolleyes: Next thing you'll be suggesting we eat Chubby Hubby with a little Spotted Dick. Thanks for the link, Sheila, henceforth I shall refer to that particular treat as "Spotted Richard" ;)

Only 1/2hr until my piece of cake and I'm so giddy!! :dizzy: I've eaten very sparingly today and have 12 points left over...so if I have a glass of wine (2 points) that leaves me 10 points for cake, which will be a sizable chunk, right?? :D

Hey, Howie, its not as though my life has been that sheltered when it comes to :devil: things like Chubby Hubby ice cream and 'Smores, otherwise I wouldn't be here in the first place! :p

'Smores are quite lovely and I am happy to report I have evaded their gooey lure today. :smug: When I do have one (or four!), I make them in the microwave although they are better when made with toasted marshmallows: top 1/2 graham cracker with one large marshmallow, microwave 10 seconds. Top immediately with 1/4 milk chocolate bar and the other half of the graham cracker. Eat=MMM! (The directions on the hershey's package say use 1/2 of the chocolate bar but that throws off the chocolate/marshmallow ratio IMHO. And besides my way lowers the calories and fat content-LOL)

CAUTION: more FOOD PORN AHEAD...Has anyone else heard of B&J's Chunky Monkey ice cream? never have cared for Chubby Hubby, but I love Chunky Monkey. (banana flavored ice cream with walnuts and chunks of chocolate mixed in-mmm but OH! the Calories OH! the Fat!!)

I wonder how many Americans know what Treacle Pudding is (a favourite from my childhood in England) or Nanaimo Bars and Butter Tarts (Canadian delights to die for)

OK, I give up, what is Treacle Pudding? :?: I have heard about it before but have no clue what it is. As to the Nanaimo Bars and Butter Tarts, I have never heard of them please enlighten this American.

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, Fruit salad

Lunch: Barbequed chopped chicken salad (bbq'd chicken, lettuce, black beans, corn, green onions, jicama, tomatoes, jack cheese, 2 tbsp. bbq sauce, no other dressing or tortilla strips in the salad or the yummy bread --a trade off for the cheese :cheese: )

Dinner: Egg, whole wheat pita, 6 oz. carrots, 1 nectarine

Today was OK. Overslept this morning and that threw my whole day all out of whack.

Breakfast: nothing

Lunch: 2 homemade waffles with 4 tablespoons calorie free maple flavored syrup, 1 banana

Dinner: 1 1/2 slices pepperoni cheese-stuffed crust pizza, 1 cup coleslaw, 2 cups broccoli/carrots topped with 1 tsp flax seed oil

Snacks: One 98% Fat Free Fudge Bar, 1 slice whole wheat toast with peanut butter, green seedless grapes

Beverages: 16 oz diet soda, 40 oz water, 24 oz soymilk

I didn't drink as much water today, mainly because I ran out of bottled water and I don't like the tap water very much. Tastes yucky :p
On a happy note: I weighed myself this morning and the scale said 268!!!! Probably water weight from the departure of my monthly visitor so I'm trying not to get too excited, but it still gave me a huge thrill! Official weigh in is Sunday, so we'll see what's up then...

Good job, Jillegal! Your cake and wine treats were planned and even if you consumed more than you initially thought...you had the flexpoints to cover them! Plus, I do believe you can quadruple the calories burned by walking in heels of any height! :lol:

I had a food victory at a baby shower last night...bypassed 2 diferent pastas, potatoe swimming in butter, italian sausage and instead filled my plate with salad and added a boneless chicken breast. The dressings were on the side so I controlled the amount. I was planning to have a small piece of cake until someone mentioned it was very sweet...so I skipped it. I did have to look behind me to see who actually said the words "No thanks"...but it's a start! ;)

Ran too many errands yesterday and my water intake suffered (didn't want to be looking for bathrooms everywhere)...so today's mission is to drink a lot.

It's sunny here with a nice breeze...gonna be a great day!

Ok, now I'm beginning to notice that I've lost weight, for a while, people would tell me I looked good, but I didn't see it. I guess it took a while for my eyes to get used to the body.

Today, I get out of work @ 12:30, then I have PT :o , then I meet my trainer at the gym. Whew, I'm exhausted just thinking about it.

I do PT at my office, we're lucky that we have a PT gym they just redid it, so Wednesday when I went there were all construction men standing there watching me do my leg lifts. I guess I just got over being self-conscious! I hope they enjoyed it.

Here's my food from yesterday...

1 - egg whites
3 - ww muffin
2 - coffee
5 - zone bar
2 - coffee
9 - pork solvaki?
5 - french fries

Cecily - There was a recent article on msn about laughter burning calories. So laugh away :lol: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8092720/

And I'm not going anywhere near SAPF's and Jilly's conversation...

Anyways, my diet yesterday was completely shot.

Breakfast - 2 pieces of whole wheat toast w/ 1 tbs of natural peanut butter.
Lunch - I missed lunch...this is where I started going downhill
Wasn't able to eat until about 7pm, 12 hours after breakfast and I went to McDonalds because I was too hungry to wait the hour to get home and cook. I had a big mac and about 10 fries. So I didn't go over on my calories or anything, but I felt really just :barf: afterwards, I can't believe I used to eat that stuff every day, sometimes multiple times a day.

Today I'm planning on having a salad for lunch :hungry:

Not only did you go over Jill but your trying to be sneaky about it. Well ok you were not so sneaky since you reported it at the top of your post. I expect you to be extra good today though and drink plenty of water to fulsh it out. I can't speak to much because of my own habits but I could not let you slide by either.:devil:

See, well.... today's shot to bits. :( I was off on a roll, then I got a flare up of Meniere's Disease that started mid-afternoon. I can barely stand up, let alone exercise. So, because I couldn't fix dinner we ordered Indian takeaway. My favourite! :T

Thanks for your vote of confidence, BarbaraAnn, and its true that I did manage to fit my overeating in with my flex points (and compensate a bit by walking), but what concerned me was how once I was faced with the cake and wine I immediately decided not to have the small piece and one glass of plonk but insisted on a brick sized piece of cake (and more later) plus an extra glass of wine (and unplanned cream in my coffee). It was that loss of control that disturbed me and, to be honest, if "eats" had been offered along with the cake and wine I'm not sure I wouldn't have attacked that as well. :ink: So, while I planned ahead to mitigate the damage, I'm still anxious to learn the art of self-control to handle those times I get hit with the "give it to me, NOW" mindset!

Yes, Howie, I drank and drank and drank water today and feel confident most of that sugary mess has now "left the building" ;)

Go ahead and wag your finger at me, Ali, because I'm wagging mine at you (its a "do as I say, not as I do" kind of thing) :D

Well, it's 5 a.m....I've been awake for and hour, 20 minutes....intentionally. :fr:

DH just left for a roadtrip with his parents to Gloucester/Boston. My FIL mentioned that a special festival was starting there on Sunday and he'd love to see his family...it's been 20 years since he's seen many of them and he's 75.

I couldn't and didn't care to go...but I whole-heartedly encouraged DH to go. It felt so weird though...seeing him drive off!!! Sons had no problem going back to sleep....but I think I drank too much coffee. :hyper: Good news is I probably won't be cooking much this week...boys and I will probably go out quite a bit...making it a mini vacation for me as well. I ain't no fool! :lol:

Jillegal: I sure know what you mean about being anxious about learning the art of self-control. Just now, when DH left...I had that weird, anxious feeling...didn't know what to do but the thought of eating popped in my head so I turned the computer on instead and came here. I knew if I started eating...it would be that old mindless way of doing so. Think I'll go lay down with the TV on and hopefully doze off for a bit....the sun's not even up...why the heck am I?!!!! :lol:

06-18-2005, 05:45 AM
Ah well, Jill, its good for us to know that you're human, and can occasionally sink to our level! I know what you mean about the self-control issue......on the other hand, a large piece of cake and a couple of glasses of wine are hardly a big deal, given that you have been guzzling water and eating healthily since.....

As for me, I am just getting frustrated.....I have been eating healthily, and its true not exercising as much as I should (I do walk every day, and swim a couple of times a week), and the scales are going up, not down. I am trying to ignore them, since I find it hard to believe this is fat gain, but I am feeling like a sulky child!

So I thought I had better show up here, and log my food/exercise for Friday....

Cappucino
2 halves of horrible, unidentifiable sandwich (lunch at a meeting....had to eat something.....this was all that was on offer...)
Tea, 2 apples (Please note saint-like behaviour.....I was very hungry due to no breakfast, and insufficient lunch....stuck on long train journey, buffet car closed due to flooding (!), and only food available from trolley was cakes, cookies, chips....so I had a cup of tea, and munched on the apples I had fortuitously brought with me.....)
Summer vegetable soup
Ryvita and jam
Chicken and spicy tomato and vegetable sauce, low fat yogurt
Corn on the cob
Low fat hot chocolate

40 min walk

I was home yesterday, and ate low-calorie, but not really healthily. Mostly cheese and bread or crackers, which is a serious comfort food for me. Almost no fruits/veggies, which I'm really trying to eat evry day. I just wasn't in the mood for raw apple, which we have to eat out of hand, and didn't have the energy to cook veggies. I actually eat better when I'm at work, because our cafeteria ALWAYS has a vegetarian soup, and an extensive salad bar, and cooked veggies on the pay-by-the-ounce bar.
So enough excuses. I am home for the next three days, so I WILL eat veggies and fruits at home, darnitall!

Breakfast:
whole wheat toast with cheddar cheese melted on top
tea with milk

Lunch:
Reduced Fat Cheezits
Cheddar cheese

Dinner:
2 slices bacon
2 lowfat hotdogs
1 cup of baked beans (DH was jonesing for beans and bacon, so I made some up and made sure I ate only one portion)

snack:
vanilla lowfat yogurt

exercise:
none

BarbaraAnn: Well done on not giving in to emotional eating. Hope you have an enjoyable (and healthy!) mini break. :)

Claire: Try not to get too frustrated. If you're sticking to plan, you will get results. You're right that the scales are not the only measure of success. Posting in this thread is a great way to be accountable. It's not so much food amnesia I suffer from, but that temptation to convince myself that the calories don't count if no one knows I've eaten! :o :dz:

Well, Jill, consider yourself finger-wagged! And when you've recovered from that you may exercise your fist by shaking it at me. After my lil' lie down last night I emerged an hour later and added another 770 kcals to the wreck that was yesterday's eating plan. :ink: Did I say "plan"?!

What makes it so bad is that I wasn't even hungry. :mad: It was pure compulsive eating. Even as I was routing around for nibbles, I was telling myself that I didn't really want anything, but I carried on regardless. It's as though I'm intentionally trying to sabotage my efforts to date. So to add to my food list is:
1 oz of Swiss cheese (which I don't even care for)
60 g chocolate Smarties (again, not something I particularly like)
500 ml Pinot Grigio (okay, at least this was enjoyable!)

I had a lousy night's sleep (I spent hours obsessing over my stupidity) and I feel so miserable today. :( The first thing I did when I got up was scour the kitchen for something "nice" to eat. :rollpin: Great idea! </sarc> It was only the thought of coming here and having to 'fess up that had me making my banana shake instead. Even then, I made it with 6% :eek: Balkan style yogurt instead of the 2% I usually use. :censored: What is wrong with me?

Seems like alot of us are having a hard time lately. Don't really know how to help, but I wanted to send out some :goodvibes and give everyone a big 'ol :grouphug: Don't give up!
It maybe you're doing so well on your weightloss adventure that your unconciously sabatoging yourself. This is something I worry about doing to myself. After all, losing a big chunk of weight will change my life and remove my security blanket of fat. Without my security blanket I'll have no excuse left for avoiding situations or activities. Often change is scary so we often resist it. Yes, even when we really, really want the change.

Anyway, here is my food for yesterday. Will post today's (Saturday) food later.

Being that it was father's day yesterday I was forced to eat out not once, but twice. I don't even know how to count everything, but I made pretty good choices and it was only 1 day, though it seemed to go on forever...

Here's what I ate:

3 - Luna bar
2 - egg whites w/
4 - goat cheese and spinach
5 - bacon
5 - salad
5 - tuna steak
4 - garlic mashed potatoes
?? - bite of chocolate cake
28 points + the cake

Yesterday was Father's Day AND my treat day, so I had cake. More cake than I should have had. Once I had a piece, I wanted another. So I resisted for about an hour, thinking the "full" trigger would ward it off. No go. So I figured if I'm going to have it, I will enjoy it, and try something to make it a bit healthier. So I fixed some strawberries, and crumbled a small piece of cake with them. Kinda like strawberry shortcake. Very tasty. And the strawberries did the trick. I was full, and didn't want more.

Breakfast:
Rice krispies
blueberries
milk

Lunch:
cherries
baked beans w/onions and bacon (I only ate half my portion, they were so heavy)
rice
low fat hotdog

Dinner:
grilled hamburger
grilled summer squash

Snacks:
Cake
More cake with strawberries

Drinks:
tea

Calories:
1914 (pretty good for treat day!)

Exercies:
Rest day

We are lucky because we have our parents to ourselves on father and mothers day. So we always cook a meal here. We had a wonderful meal yesterday with grilled salmon steak topped with Kimberleys homemade salsa plus grilled shrimp. YUM! Then later we took the left over shrimp and made a nice big salad. Doubble Yum!

Hmmmm. I am coming here to confess......in the hopes that by taking a truly penitent attitude, Madame Jill may not be too harsh on me.....

I ate some seriously bad stuff over the weekend......including way too many Pringles, and an unsightly number of chocolate chip cookies. Plus far too much bread. I think this just happens every 6 weeks or so......The good news is that it has made me feel really really ill - my body just can't handle that kind of sugar and fat any more....which is something of an incentive to stay away from the stuff!

Anyway. Today was a lot better.....

Banana, tea
Tomato and basil soup, smoked salmon and salad
Risotto, mushrooms and olives
Banana
Ryvita and tomato pickle, jam

30 min walk

Hopefully, I have put the weekend behind me, and am back facing the right way on that track!

OK, I'm in trouble here guys......here is what I ate all day:

Coffee
Meat kebab, rice, greek salad, fishcake, mixed salad (extremely nice lunch at meeting.....but I made pretty good choices)
Tomato soup
Raisins
Bananas

And, blush, for reasons that I cannot explain a hugely, unseemly amount of Pringles. Why? They don't even taste that good, and all that salt does horrible things to me....not to mention the huge amount of fat....

I have a sneaking suspicion that maybe if I had a house full of interesting fruit, veg etc I might be more likely to avoid the Pringles. Anyway, I guess at least I showed up here to account for my misdemeanours.

I will try and do better tomorrow....Correction. I WILL do better tomorrow.

Hope everyone else has better things to report!!!

Howie's right - don't beat youself up Claire.. Focus on ALL the great choices you made, rather than the 1 bad one. ;)

As for me, I had my first day fully on plan in the last 3 months.. I'm so committed to getting back on track that I just know I will do it..even if its little bit by little bit! :D

7 - grilled chicken salad
1 - dressing

Hey everyone-is it just me or does Celina look like Kirsten Dunst (the actress)?

Oh, and here is my food/exercise log from yesterday-posted it in my journal but forgot to post it here.

Breakfast: 1/2 c Kashi GoLean-1/2 cup Cracklin' Oat Bran with one sliced banana and 1/2 c vanilla soymilk on top

Lunch: 1 Kashi 7 Grain Granola Bar

Dinner: 1 cheeseburger (grilled lean groundbeef, 1 slice low-fat pepperjack cheese, lots of onion and ketchup on a "lite" wheat bun), 2 cups roasted veggies (potatoes, carrots, onion, red and yellow pepper tossed with garlic seasonings and olive oil), 1/2 c brocolli slaw made with Miracle Whip Light

Snack: Banana split (one banana topped with 2 small scoops Neopolitan ice cream, 1 TBS hot caramel, 2 TBS Hot fudge, lots of strawberries, 1 TBS pecans and a medium squirt of canned whipped cream)

Beverages: 16 oz choc/van soymilk, 80 oz water

Exercise: 8 minute moves
1 1/2 hours playing with my kids in the park.
(Don't really feel like this counts as my exercise for the day as I like to do my videos in addition to other activities like housework, playing with kids, yardwork, ect. Then I feel it is "official" that I've done my exercise for the day. Kinda silly, I know.)
Had a good time at the park though. Last summer when I went to the park I sat on the bench most of the time only getting up to push my kids on the swings a little. This time I chased my little guy around, running fast! and hardly got out of breath! Pushed my kids on the tire swing and I played also; I went down the slide, swang on the tire swing (I love the tire swing!) and I swang on the regular swings too. Still a bit afraid they would break :o but they didn't. I love being smaller and look forward to getting even smaller and smaller! :D
