100 lb. Club - Weekly Journal Buddy Thread (September 5-11)

Starting a new thread so we don't go more than a week.

This is the place to post what you eat each day. Good, bad, points, veggies, calories, carbs -- whatever you are keeping track of or counting -- we're here to help keep each other accountable, and to help us find what our "trigger" points are, so we can plan strategies for life. So jump right on in and start posting! Everyone is welcome in this weekly thread.

---------------------

Glad to see Nosugarmomma joining us on the buddy thread! Sometimes it's the everyday decisions, like not eating the cake, that really add up over time. Welcome!!

My holiday was a family day -- out to lunch to Mexican food, then to a movie, then paddle boats, and finished up at Dairy Queen. So although I started with a good healthy breakfast, I ended up with a caramel/chocolate/pecan sundae for dinner -- which I ate every bit of. So much for my resolution to get a small ice cream cone and share it with Gem. *sighs* So while my calories weren't too overboard, my choices were not the healthiest.

But it's back to work today, and my more structured eating. I've also switched my weigh-in day from Monday to Wednesday, because I often eat more bread or sugar or have a couple drinks on the weekends, and all those things make me hold water for a couple of days. Wednesdays will give me a more "true" weight, I think. We'll see how it goes.

MONDAY


Breakfast:
whole wheat bread, toasted, with butter
one-egg omelet with mushrooms, onions, and low-fat cheddar


Lunch:
half a quesadilla w/sour cream and a bit of guacamole
chips and salsa
sweet corn cake

Afternoon snack to keep the Beast at bay: (at the Movies -- saw March of the Penguins -- very cool!!)
popcorn
two Butterfinger nuggets

Dinner:
Dairy Queen Pecan Mudslide ice cream sundae w/extra pecans
(after that I just wasn't hungry for real food)

Snacks throughout the day:
low-fat mozzarella cheese stick

Drinks:
diet soda, water

Calories:
about 1600

Exercise:
walking, paddle boats

Thanks Synger.

September 5 - I remeber fixing a WW Chicken pot pie recipe and don't remember much else but gave myself 4 point in the point challenge so it must have been an OK day food wise.

September 6 - Less than stellar but definitely not a binge day. 2 Mcdonald's filet of fish and french fries for dinner. Definitely not OP. I could call it my splurge meal for the week but that wouldn't really be honest. Splurge meals are for special occasions and this was just stress eating. Started a new job today. I have been off work for a year for health reasons and I think it brought back a lot of feelings. I was diagnosed last September with uterine cancer. Things have gone very well but I am still afraid. Life is never the same after you hear the "c" word in describing your condition. I have my one year checkup this Thursday.

I also recieved some distubing phone calls today. Dealing with authority figures is not my strong suit!!! Think I will be back on track tomorrow and am able to bring my lunch which always helps me feel more secure food wise.

Thanks to each and every one of you for being there and welcome to nosugarmama. DCM

Congrats on re-joining the work force, activeadventurer, especially after what must have been a terribly traumatic year for you.

There I go posting in the old thread again when a new one has been made for the week! :dizzy: Here's what I posted over yonder...

Same menu as yesterday:


egg white omelette (or scrambled egg whites--however I feel like cookin' in the morning)
2 big turkey sausage links
sliced turkey ham (about 3.5 ounces)
grilled (George Foreman style) boneless, skinless, thin-sliced chicken
Plus I hit the gym yesterday for 30 minutes on the elliptical before working at the restaurant for the night. Drinks throughout the day included only water (11-12 servings) and diet soda (including Sprite Zero, which has no caffeine). I don't get to go to the gym between jobs today because I have an orientation at 3pm for my new job (yes, a third job, but if I make enough $$ at it, I will be able to quit working at the restaurant!). However, I still have to work at the restaurant tonight, so I will get some forced running around and carrying heavy items (even Jeff has noticed the increase in the size of my biceps--especially the left one, since I tend to carry heavy drink trays with that hand so I have my right hand free for putting the glasses on the table :p ).

Hi everyone, I'm back at work, back from CA/NV and basically back on plan. I wasn't really off plan, I took my bars with me and actually ate them, which I never do. I was so busy w/the bride doing wedding stuff that I hardly noticed that I wasn't eating all of the junk that everyone else was. I listened to my body and I tried to eat only when I was hungry.

Now I'm back, well for a few days, next week I'm back in CA for a meeting for the week. I'm going to really have to plan for this one, meetings are very stressful, and I have only been to one since starting the beginning of the year.

Anyway, I'm re-dedicating myself, I want to at least hit 199 by the end of the year (more if possible) and that's 19 more pounds to go... Let's do it together!

Have a good day everyone.

Glad to have you with us Activeadventurer! It's so hard to start something new, like a job, after focusing on yourself and your health for a time. I'm glad you're strong enough to work again. My mother was always happier when her cancer allowed her to DO stuff.

Jilly, you sure work hard. I can't imagine working two jobs, let alone three. I'm always so proud when you post here about being on-plan, 'cause I know how hard it must be for you to plan your food when you're running around so much.

Beth, welcome back! I'm glad you were able to plan for the bars, and use your "wedding plan" successfully. Keep that in mind.. write it down maybe... so you can take it out and remember your success another time when you feel tempted. I hear you about meetings -- whenever I've had to travel for work I've fallen right off the wagon, food-wise. Eating out three meals a day for a week is MURDER. I don't know how people who travel all the time for their jobs keep their weight down.

Well, here's mine for Tuesday. Pretty straight-forward. I LOVE the cafeteria at work. They have a hot bar every day, with a couple different kinds of vegetables. Sometimes I get tired of the same thing every week, but they also have soup, or sandwiches, or if I'm desperate, veggie pizza. I'm very fortunate.


Breakfast:
cottage cheese
watermelon

Lunch:
roasted chicken
cabbage
carrots
green beans
mashed potatoes w/gravy

Afternoon snack to keep the Beast at bay:
protein bar

Dinner:
hamburger
zucchini/eggplant/tomato melange
nectarine

Snacks throughout the day:
piece of Almond Roca (toffee w/chocolate)
4 chicken nuggets before bed (cleaning up Gem's plate)

Drinks:
coffee w/half-and-half
water
green tea (warming up after swimming)

Calories:
about 1500

Exercise:
stairs, walking, swimming

Welcome back, Beth, and good job of behaving while away. I'm game for losing 19lbs. by the end of the year, so I'll join you! :D

Today turned into a bit of an off plan day for me, but it could have been much, much worse, given the circumstances, so I'm quite pleased (especially since I have lots of "flex points" to absorb today's excess).

It was a committee day with meetings encompassing both lunch and dinner. While meals are provided by the firm, they usually consist of lots of cheesy, meaty pizza, deep fried shrimp, thick crusty rolls with butter, mayo laden chicken and tuna sandwiches, pasta salads dripping with oil and for dessert, cheesecake squares, assorted cookies and Tim Hortons donuts. :hungry: (okay, enough food porn). Luckily for me there were some decent choices also and while I ate more than usual, it was healthy fare and I did NOT touch any of the aforesaid food porn items! One thing that sort of annoyed me though was when I was writing on my little notepad the ingredients of what I was eating (I'd never remember it all later to record here otherwise) someone said "Just relax and eat. You don't have to take notes" and someone else said "Don't mind her ~ she's got some sort of food obsession". Harrumph! :snooty:

Breakfast
Raisin Bran and 1% milk (tomorrow I start my Kashi Heart to Heart and it’s a sad commentary on my life that I'm actually excited)
Lunch
Bean and barley salad *
Marinated raw veggies **
Pasta salad (small amount of rotini noodles in some sort of garlic & oil dressing)
pumpernickel bagel
Dinner
Salad of spinach, mushrooms, sliced carrots and tomatoes (I chose a non-creamy dressing ~ some sort of vinaigrette)
Small amount of basmati rice
Couple of thin slices of rolled up black forest ham
Evening
Tim Horton's coffee with cream

So, I'm figuring I had about 25-26 points, which I'm fine with.

*barley, red kidney beans, chick peas, tiny green peas, black-eyed peas, diced carrots in some sort of very light vinegary dressing.

**carrots, onions, green pepper, celery, broccoli, zucchini, red cabbage and cauliflower (in some sort of marinade with herbs)

Beverages: I drank bottled spring water, Perrier water and club soda pretty much all day long.

Exercise: Morning and evening walks with dog. Lifting heavy boxes filled with encyclopaedias, other assorted books, antiques (clocks and oil lamps) from the garage back into my newly renovated family room.

Hi Folks,

Welcome back to those posting in the old thread, I had wondered where you had gone. ;) Thanks for the support synager and jillegal. I especially like those group hug smilies. :) Visuals are really powerful for me.

Today is the day I go for my one year checkup after having surgery for uterine cancer last year. (My one year anniversary is September 26) Surgery was my only treatment and I have every expectation that things will go well but it is still scary. Thanks for letting me share my anxiety. I especially noticed how it has changed my food the last couple of days. While not binging, I have pretty much been munching all day long, not all but mostly the good stuff. It is definitely anxiety eating.

I think the new job is definitely affecting things also. I am not too worried about that as after the first few weeks I will be working from home and have a lot of control over what food is in the environment and will have a schedule that I can control myself. That really helps me with scheduling exercise time. :cb: :cb: :cb: A good day and rest for all (especially Jill!) DCM

Hi Folks,

The yearly check up went great!!!!!! I am so relieved and realize how much I really appreciate my doctor. She said they are only planning to follow me with 6 month check ups for another year and that everything looked good. The pain I have been feeling is most likely scar tissue. I feel like I am returning to earth as my anxiety about the outcome had me spinning. I actually started exercising again today after a three day lapse (WATP - 2 mile) and drank all my water. Hopefully my eating will normalize tommorow too. Thanks for asking. DCM

MMm... those Tricuits w/ cheese and salsa sound very good. I may have to try that some time. Three of my favorite foods. *grins*

Friday ended up being an "on the high end of my calorie range" day. It was one of those days when I just kept feeling hungry, no matter what. Since my calories the last few days have been 1500 or below, I figured my body just needed a few hundred more today. (I aim for 1500-1800, but allow myself up to 2000.) No binging, no emotional eating, and no really unhealthy choices. I think I just needed more food.

FRIDAY

Breakfast:
walnuts (precommute)
vanilla lowfat yogurt
banana
coffee w/flavored creamer

Lunch:
4 chicken wing "drummettes"
greens
green beans
mac and cheese

Afternoon snack to keep the Beast at bay:
vegetable soup
protein bar

Dinner:
hamburger
cheese bread, toasted, w/butter

Snacks:
broccoli "cream" soup (small new potato, broccoli, boullion cube in water, nuked until veggies were soft, then pureed with a bit of low-fat cream cheese) -- quick, easy and healthy comfort food

Drinks:
water
diet soda

Calories:
about 2000

Exercise:

Alright, here it is, the weekend--my most difficult time with eating. Even worse, I am spending the weekend at Jeff's, where we do not have full access to the kitchen, so we eat out for EVERY meal. Yesterday for dinner, we ate a Bennigan's, and before we left I checked their website, but they do NOT have their nutritional information available :mad: However I think I did okay. I chose:


boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a garlic & rosemary marinade (and I only ate 1 of the pieces of chicken when they served 2)
garlic mashed potatoes
black beans
water
Today, we went to Panera Bread for breakfast/lunch (didn't get up and showered till almost 1pm :o ) and to Subway for dinner, so all day today, I had:

baked potato soup (230 calories), sourdough roll (190 calories), 1/2 Asian sesame chicken salad (215 calories), diet Pepsi...total at Panera: 635 calories
6" (yes, I got the 12" sub, but only ate half and saved the other half for tomorrow) sweet onion chicken teriyaki sub (no cheese, lettuce and sweet onion sauce only--about 410 calories), cool ranch doritos (140 calories), diet Coke with a splash of regular Coke for flavor (less than 50 calories, but we'll call it 50 to be safe)...total at Subway: 600 calories
So, I am still well under 1500 calories for today (even if I accidentally underestimated anything), whereas I normally would have gone and had burgers and fries and pizza and ice cream and all that jazz. There's a possibility of a snack later tonight, but as long as it's under 500 calories, I think I'm still doing well for the day. I know I only ate twice, which isn't good, and I haven't exactly gotten the greatest nutrition for the day, but it's still a huge step in the right direction for me, so I am very proud :D This whole planning ahead for restaurants thing might not be as difficult as I thought, plus I won't have to cry on Sunday night about my horrible weekend choices ;)

Hi Folks,

I had an ok day with food everything OP except that I had too many of the muffins that I made yesterday. I was supposed to take them to a Fall Festival that I attended tonight (it's really more of a Food Festival :)) and "forgot" them. Oh well. Was very pleased at how I handled the festival. I ate before I went and just spent my time there socializing with friends. See ya DCM

I adore Triscuits. :love: My local supermarket has only recently started stocking the reduced fat version, and though I prefer the full-fat ones with 50% less salt, I can have one extra RF Triscuit for 10 less kcals. :D

Yesterday was a strange one--I only had 849 kcals. I spent all afternoon and evening cleaning my SIL's house (still only halfway through, mind, so I'll have to go back sometime soon to finish up there) and I just didn't feel like stopping for food. :shrug: When I got home I just feel grimy and weary, and though I cooked up some pizzas for hubby and Unruly SIL, I still wasn't in any mood to eat.

Sat 10/09:

Breakfast: 1 cup Optimum Slim cereal, 30 g raisins, ½ cup 0% milk.
Mid-morning: Shake made with 7½ oz banana, 4½ oz strawberries, ½ cup LF plain yogurt, ice, vanilla extract.
Lunch: 2½ oz whole-grain bagel, 1 oz thinly sliced ham, 1 tblsp. Phili Light, rocket, tomato, hot peppers.

Thanks fot the support TooFatFish and Jillegal. I am feeling much better emotionally and still struggling to get back on track with the food. About 2700 kcals today. Not horrible but my target is 2000-2500. I am focusing alot on just telling myself the "right stuff" instead of its no use, I 'll never lose any weight etc.

SUNDAY ("splurge" day -- where I record my food but don't hold myself to my normal calorie limits. I find I seldom go above 2500 anyway, but it's nice to have the leeway. Normal days I aim between 1500-1800, but allow up to 2000)

Breakfast:
Kashi w/blueberries and skim milk
cantaloupe


Lunch:
protein shake w/frozen berries, protein powder, and skim milk
cheese bread, toasted, w/butter


Afternoon snack to keep the Beast at bay:
mozzarella cheese stick


Dinner: (Dinner at the Hard Times Cafe. Tasty chili. I looked up the nutrition when I got home and the Texas chili is higher in fat than the others. It was, of course, the one I ended up ordering. But I only ate half of it, so it wasn't too bad. Not something I'd choose on a regular day, but for a "splurge" day it was okay)

Texas chili w/tomatoes, onions, a sprinkling of cheddar cheese, and sour cream on the side, over corn bread
a large beer

Snacks:
half a small french fry order from McDonald's (happy meal that gem got. I should NOT allow myself to go out to dinner that hungry)


Drinks:
diet soda, water

Calories:
about 2000


Exercise:
walking (very slow, with gem on her tricycle, for about three blocks, and back home)
