OMG, this week it will be October. That's it folks, summer is over and we're well into fall now. Before we know it Canadian thanksgiving will be here, then Hallow'een, then American thanksgiving, then Christmas and then a whole NEW YEAR. Time's a flying but there's still plenty of it left for us to meet big or mini goals or become entrenched in a new lifestyle or make the decision to end the old year determined to start the new one living healthier. Good luck to whatever applies to YOU!

I suppose I can't start off this week by neglecting to post my "weekend" eats, so here's a quick accountability. The hardest thing about weekends for me is I easily lose my eating "structure" and I'm going to concentrate on that from now on.

Saturday
Mid-day
Tim Hortons cinnamon-raisin bagel with light cream cheese
Tim Hortons coffee with double cream
Early Evening
Two Piller's "turkey brats" (done on bbq)
Creamy coleslaw
Macaroni salad
Evening
Baked Doritos (too many)
Beverages
Several cans of calorie-free diet lemonade (sparkling soda)
Water
No doubt I went over on "points"

Sunday
Points
Morning
1 - 2 slices Weight Watchers 60% whole wheat bread, toasted with
2 - 1 tbsp. peanut butter
0 - tea
Afternoon
0 - diet lemonade
0 - water
3 - Tim Hortons Iced Cappacino (made with 2% milk)
Evening
6 - pork roast
2 - new potatoes
1 - baby carrots
0 - diet lemonade
0 - water
15 total (too many under target)

By the way, Beth, I'm looking forward to hearing more (much more) about your "friendship" with Mr. PT in the weeks to come! :devil:

Yes Jill?? :o Actually, I just went down to see him, I missed him, what can I say??? He has such an infectious personality, he used to be an athlete in school, sigh, anyway... he's so supportive and he always just says the right things. He seems to have this calming effect on me... :dizzy:

For a while, we had this horrible time because I couldn't relax while he was stretching me out, here's this incredibly attractive man, basically on top of me w/my leg up over my head. He kept telling me to relax, and I couldn't! Imagine that! Well, anyway, I finally realized that part of the reason that I was having trouble relaxing because I wanted to help him hold my leg, so he wouldn't feel how heavy my leg was/is. So one day I tell him this, while we're paying tug of war w/my leg, and his response, was something like, ok... now let it go! And I did! We still stretch, and I don't fight him anymore.

So I went down to tell him that I did the Race for the Cure in Central Park yesterday, it's a 5K, (3.1 miles) AND I was able to run about a mile of it! My knee is ok, my IT band and my SO-AZ muscule hurt, but not awful. He was very happy for me...we've talked about my injury and not being able to exercise before and this is a huge step for me!

That's pretty much it, PT and I are friends, but I still say there's something else there, I've seen him with other people, he doesn't talk, smile, or engage them like he does with me... I try not to focus on that, right now he's doing wonders for me the way he is!

I can't believe it's almost October, Jilly. I'm sure time has speeded up since I was a kid!
Congratulations on the race, Beth! I really admire the runners here.

I was over on my kcals yesterday, but it was all pretty healthy stuff so I don't mind. I could have had the cheese or ham for lunch instead of both, and I really didn't need quite so much lamb at dinner. It was good though. :)

Sun 25/09:

Breakfast: 1 cup Optimum Slim cereal, cup 0% milk, 1 oz seedless raisins.
Lunch: 4 oz lean roast ham, 1 oz gouda, 8 raincoast crisps.
Dinner: 6 oz lean grilled lamb, Jilly's Autumn Roasted veggies. Talk about tasty! :T
Snacks: Shake (6 oz banana, crushed ice, cup 0% milk, cup 2% yogurt, vanilla extract).
Drinks: 1 litres coffee, 1 litres water.

Total kcals: 1731 (plus free veggies)

Exercise: 3 miles WATP.

Yoo Hoo! I don't know why people are avoiding my thread, Boiaby made it pretty clear there was a new one started yet Omega-Laura and Apryl seem to have missed it! I wonder if Jillybean and Alpha-Laura will make their way over here anytime soon, they've been MIA for a few days. :chin:

I checked out the stats on Optimum Slim cereal, Ali, and have decided to definitely give it a try once my stash of American cereal is gone! ;)

Had a pretty tough day food wise. Too many sweets and calories. Not enough "real" food or water. Definitelystres/emotional eating. The good news:I have a plan to deal with the things that were stressing me out, I exercised and I looked at bicycles to buy. I am planning this as a spring time reward for staying on track over the winter one day at a time.

DishyFishy, loved your vegetable tangine. Thanks for the recipe. DCM

HELLLLLLLLLLO! I'm here! Sorry I've been MIA - I didn't track my food this weekend. Saturday was my birthday and I thought that maybe ONE day a year I could not obsess. :lol: Sunday, I planned to track it but then we went to dinner at BIL/SIL house and they had ice cream cake for me - and, of course, since the cake was FOR me I had to be sociable and have a piece. :o I know I went way over - I had a salad when I got home b/c I was feeling hungry, then I had a little more cake...ack. Anyway - 2 days won't kill me - back at it today (though over my calories :( ).

Oh and Beth ~ My best friend hired a trainer a year ago b/c she was gaining weight and not feeling good about herself and felt like she was working out wrong, yada, yada, yada... Well...3 months ago they started DATING and it is VERY serious! :D

Yeah, yeah, I'm here. I'm a bit backwards this week--my weekend was okay food-wise, but then Monday was a disaster!

Monday's eats:

cheese pizza (despite the fact that I dabbed off the grease with napkins before I ate it, it was a HUGE piece--probably more like 2 normal slices together)
reduced-fat chocolate milk
instant oatmeal (banana bread flavor, Weight Control, made with water)
reduced-fat peanut butter (a little more than the 2-tablespoon serving size--more like almost half a jar :o )
2 servings of whole wheat pasta with my own sauce (sauce is tomato paste, no-salt-added tomato sauce, turkey sausage, and seasonings)

All together: more than 3200 calories :mad: plus not enough water and no real exercise

The problem was that I got to work and was busy from the second I walked in until the second I left. I had to stay late for a conference call, so I was at work for 12 hours (6am-6pm). Now, there is a reason I normally work 6am-2pm...TRAFFIC! It normally takes me about 20 minutes to get home at 2pm (about 12 miles). At 6pm, it took me over an hour and a half :s: So by the time I got home, I was both hungry and frustrated (enter jar of peanut butter and too much pasta). I hadn't had a chance to eat my breakfast--I was up at 4:30am, but the first thing I got a chance to eat was the pizza and chocolate milk at noon!

But enough excuses...time to fix it. So far today:

instant oatmeal (peaches 'n cream flavor, reduced-sugar, made with water)
I'll probably just have banana bread flavored oatmeal for lunch. I've already had 3 servings of water and a can of Coke Zero (and am working on my second 3-serving bottle of water). The good news is, I don't have any peanut butter or pasta left in my house, so none of that nonsense will be recurring tonight! :devil: I have turkey sausage or some thin-sliced frozen chicken I can cook for dinner. I'll update my menu later or tomorrow.

Good morning! I hope you guys don't mind me jumping in here. I've been on a maintainence break and decided last week to really buckle down and knock off these last 20 pounds. Since I've been saying that for about a month now a little accountability is probably in order.

So, yesterday I ended at about 1970 calories.

Breakfast: 1 cup grits with 1 t. margarine, 1 slice wheat toast with 1 t. grape jelly, 2 slices regular bacon.

Snack: 1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese

Lunch: Leftover chicken parmesan, 3 oz chicken breast, 1 T. bread crumbs, 1/4 oz mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup Prego, 3/4 cups thin spaghetti

Snack: 1 slice wheat bread, 2 t. reduced fat peanut butter, 1/2 t. honey, 1/2 cup skim milk

Dinner: Homemade veggie pizza (1/4 of recipe), a few slices of the kids' homeade pepperoni pizza.

Hindsight is 20/20 as they say.
Note to self: it isn't a good idea to eat a high carb, low protein breakfast, don't eat all of the leftover pasta just because you think the little extra portion is too much to throw away, and for goodness sakes keep your hands off the kids' pizza! Oh, and stop putting off going to the grocery store so that you'll have some fruit and vegetables in the house.

I don't want to make an excuse for myself but I did skip my usual weekend grocery trip because we had two days of nasty, rainy weather that was just perfect for putting off any chores. Yesterday's menu is what we've been reduced to. I've made my list, though, and I will get the grocery shopping done this morning and the rest of the week should be much, much better. At least my exercise in right on track.

Welcome back, Omega-Laura. Now stay here!! :lol: Belated birthday wishes to you. :hat:

Just a note in case you didn't spot it in the nutritional info, Jilly, the Optimum Slim cereal is a bit sweeter than the Kashi.

I hope your stress eases up, activeadventurer. I'm doing better thanks. I have to make sure I keep working on my mind as well as my body. This holistic "living right" thing takes some flippin' effort!
Glad you liked the tagine. Try Jilly's Autumn veggies--delicious! :T

Welcome jawsmom. :wave: Good to have you join us. You've done such an amazing job I'm sure those 20 lbs will follow the the other 75.

That's a tough day you had, jillybean. When I go for long periods without food, I often make poor choices too. Glad to hear it's behind you and I hope today is better for you.

Mon 26/09:

Breakfast: Shake (6 oz banana, crushed ice, cup 0% milk, cup 2% yogurt, vanilla extract), All-Bran bar.
Lunch: 540 ml tin President's Choice LF Black Bean Soup.
Dinner: More of Jilly's Autumn Roasted veggies, 2 oz whole-grain bread with Marmite.
Snacks: 1 oz w-g bread with Marmite, LF granola bar.
Drinks: 1 litres coffee, 2 litres water, 500 ml green tea, 500 ml cocoa (made with water and cup 2% milk), 250 ml reduced salt Oxo.

Total kcals: 1476

Exercise: 4 miles WATP.

Thanks for making me :lol: DishyFishy. My sentiments exactly! Glad to hear you are doing better.

Good food day, even better exercise day, and reduced my stress by asking for and getting a new boss. I'm exhausted!!! :dizzy:

Welcome, jawsmom, as we say here "The more the merrier"! You've got some pretty impressive stats to motivate us! :yes:

Glad you had a better day, stress-wise, exercise-wise and boss-wise, Denise! :dizzy:

I'll let the double-thread thing go this time, Apryl, but you really must pay more attention in future! :p So, how'd your weigh-in go? Enquiring minds want to know!

Glad to see you're back on track today, Young Jilly, and ecstatic to learn there's no peanut butter left in the house! :D

So the rule here is that you're allowed to have a free day on your birthday, Alpha-Laura, but then its back to business (in other words, you can't have your cake and eat it too!) :s:

Glad you're enjoying my autumn veggie recipe, my Dishy friend. I'm still going the salad route while the weather's warm, but will make a batch of autumn veggie's in a couple of weeks for Thanksgiving (I can avoid over-indulging in turkey and stuffing if I load my plate with roasted veggies). :hun:

Have not been posting here much but I'm doing pretty good these past couple weeks. I hope to see a loss Friday. I decided not to have a treat night until after the 1st of the year. Holidays will be the exception maybe. Anyway since I did not have a treat night I found myself being a little free with my calories each day over the past 4 days. I looked back and it came to 575 calories that I am over for the past 4 days. So today I made that up by only eating 1180. So now I am 45 to the good for the week. I really hope this pays off. I really want to make it to goal for my surgery. I'm not doing it just because I want to look good anymore it's a need to thing now. I want to be as thin as possible by January. I figure my goal of 245 is a good weight to shoot for by then. So anyway I think maybe I'll start coming back to this thread again.

Breakfast
kashi w/blueberries/skim milk

Lunch
Turkey wrap with low fat cheese and spinach

Snack
apple
banana

Dinner
Tuna
tomato
cucumbers

Snack
Veggie soup

Ahem...SAPF, "Queen Jilly" will do quite nicely (merci beaucoup Linda), or I will accept Jilly the Elder if I must, but don't even attempt any "Jilly the old bag" nonsense! :s:

We'd love to see you back posting here Howie! Understand totally about wanting to get to goal for reasons other than appearance ~ I know you're not looking forward to surgery but going into it in the best shape you possibly can has to benefit you in the long run and really help recovery. You know we're all rooting for you!

Stayed under 1700 calories yesterday, which would have been fine if I hadn't had so many the day before. Here's what I had:


instant oatmeal (peaches 'n cream flavor, reduced-sugar, made with water)
wrap (grilled chicken, lettuce, swiss cheese, and honey mustard on a spinach tortilla)
tomato soup with a few croutons in it (the sign said "cream of tomato," but it wasn't very creamy, and it had carrots, onions, and other non-identifiable vegetable chunks in it, so I guess it was more like a vegetable soup with a tomato-based broth?)
reduced-fat chocolate milk
So yeah, that all doesn't sound like much, but it added up fast--brought me to about 1650 calories for the day according to my Fitday :o So much for thinking I could get a sensible lunch in the cafeteria at work...

As for today:

instant oatmeal (peaches 'n cream flavor, reduced-sugar, made with water)
2 big links of turkey sausage with honey mustard (MY honey mustard from home, not the super-creamy honey mustard dressing like I had yesterday that was packed with fat and calories!)
instant oatmeal (banana bread flavor, Weight Control, made with water)

I already had one Coke Zero and have another in the fridge for later--time to get crackin' on the water!

Hi everyone, I haven't worked out since the race on Sunday. Monday, I was still a little sore and I didn't want to do anything to hurt my knee. Yesterday, I was just too tired. Today I'm meeting my trainer at the gym, so I have no excuses...

Also, I have on a new outfit, it's a sweater shell with a strechy tank underneath. If I were brave enough to take off the sweater, you can really see how small my waist is getting - I may have to stroll by PT later... :lol: I'm also currently wearing Leopard print Manolos, though those may not last long depending on my knee.

Here's my food from yesterday...

2 - coffee
1 - egg whites
3 - luna bar

2 - coffee
5 - pork
0 - salad
2 - pita
5 - a handful of french fries

Sheesh! Where has the week gone?!?! Sorry about being MIA, been busy finishing up the website for my Tae Kwon Do school and doing some fiddling with my personal site. TKD site is almost done still needs some minor tweaking and adjusting, but if you want to have a peek here's the link-->Baraboo Tae Kwon Do (http://barabootaekwondo.tripod.com)
My personal site hasn't been updated yet. If you want to see it before I update it, here's the link. ;)MomzWorld (http://momzworld.tripod.com)
Also been really working at getting to bed before 2 am!! And my Ana-beanie has been sick. :(

Yesterday ended up just around 1200 calories:


bowl of Kashi cereal w/skim milk (Go Lean mixed with 9 Grains, I think)
instant oatmeal (peaches 'n cream flavor, reduced-sugar, made with water)
bowl of Kashi cereal w/skim milk (the kind that looks and tastes like Cheerios)
2 turkey sausage links w/honey mustard
bowl of Kashi cereal w/skim milk (the kind that looks and tastes like Cheerios)
Could you tell I wanted to get the cereal out of my cabinet and the milk out of my fridge before it went bad :dizzy: Quite high in carbs, but at least it had lots of fiber!

As for today, the plan is:

instant oatmeal (peaches n' cream flavor, reduced-sugar, made with water)
instant oatmeal (banana bread flavor, Weight Control, made with water)
Subway (12" sweet onion chicken teriyaki on honey oat, no cheese, small bag of chips--the baked cool ranch Doritos, if they have them--YUM!)
Should be about 1400 calories for the day :smug:

Thursday

Not the best of days, but also not the worst of days......I did manage a lot of walking: from home to the doctor (30 min), doctor to the hospital for blood test (45 min) and hospital to home (15 min). Fingers crossed for the blood test - fasting blood sugar - last time (16 months ago) it was fine, but I have not been feeling so great recently, and have this nasty feeling that the IGT (impaired glucose tolerance) may be back....ooh well, takes 2 weeks to get the results, so will just aim for some healthy eating and exercise in the mean time.

Hi Folks,

Haven't posted in the last few days. Have been hiding my head in the sand. I know that it does not work for me. My doctor ordered a CAT scan and ultrasound this week to rule out that my abdominal pain (most likely scar tissue) is not related to my previous diagnosis of uterine cancer. I don't want to deal with this but deal with it I must. Send me your good thoughts and prayers.

Food wise I have done pretty good except for the mini binge on one accasion of 4 chocolate chip cookies and a half loaf+ of circle cinnamon bread (each about 800 calories.) Exercise has been really rewarding and feels great.

Dishyfishy, looks like Onederland!!!!! Congratulations!

Looking forward to your next post, Jillybean, once you get out of the bathroom! :p

Two pieces of baklava isn't the end of the world, Synger, and if you're going to have an "extra" it may as well be something worthwhile (mmm, my mouth's watering at the thought of baklava...) :^:

Yes, Claire, keep up with the healthy eating and exercise, it'll do wonders for your emotional well being as you wait for the test results. Got my fingers and toes crossed for you (I'd cross my eyes, but then I wouldn't be able to type). ;)

Really like your avatar pic, Denise, and its nice to "see" you! Good job on the exercise and don't let a weeny binge like that get you down. Good thoughts being sent your way that the ultrasound and catscan show nothing more than scar tissue. Please don't forget to update us! :)

Congrats on the new job, SillyFluff, certainly looks like it'll be providing you with some great exercise along with the income! :D

Hope the little one's feeling better, Laura!

Whew, surprisingly enough, I wasn't in the bathroom any more than usual yesterday! Now, how's that for a little too much detail? :p I thought all that fiber would wreak havoc on my digestive system, but it seemed just fine, and I stuck pretty much to what I had planned to eact yesterday, except I only had oatmeal once because I had a meeting that lasted from 11am-1pm, so I missed lunch :o then had to go straight to an eye exam, so no time for food before my TOPS meeting! At least I lost a pound at my weigh-in (which makes up or the pound I gained last week!).

Today's plan is:

instant oatmeal (peaches 'n cream flavor, reduced-sugar, made with water)
cheese pizza (either 1 giant slice or 2 normal slices :dizzy: )
reduced-fat chocolate milk
I'm driving to Va Beach tonight, so we probably won't have any real dinner--maybe just grab some fruit or a granola bar at a gas station on the way. This weekend will be a challenge since I am seing my parents and sister--I'm sure we will eat out for almost every meal AND they will pay, which makes it even harder to choose wisely ;) but I have to be good to break this plateau--I've been hovering around the same 3 pounds since the beginning of August! :mad:

I like the sound of the 1 point muffins, Denise! Just the mix and a can of pumpkin? Do you still bake it at the temperature and for the length of time shown on the mix box?

Well, I didn't end off the month very well. Went over on points (even though I had plenty of flex points left, so technically I didn't go off plan). But I'm not giving myself the food points over in the monthly challenge because I didn't eat my 5 servings of veggies and I'm not happy with the late night Cheeto/cookie mini-binge. :mad:

OK, I also had serious serious munchies last night. 2 cans of Pringles worth, to be precise....and too many walnuts. Well, at least I stopped at that point, and didn't follow it up with chocolate. Felt the entirely predictable indigestion/stomach pain as a result....I can't see a lot of point beating myself up, so am just shrugging my shoulders, and getting on with it (the healthy eating, that is!).

Friday

Porridge, banana
Steamed mixed veggies and tuna

Half a melon (the chocolate substitute!)

Had my first 4 point day in a while. :D I had a minibinge a few days back and I really appreciated you, Jillegal, for calling it a "weeny binge". It really put it in perspective. The 1 point WW muffin is for the same time and temperture on the box. I just put together the mix and pumpkin. Very Yummy! When I later found the recipe it said to add a half cup of water. :dizzy: Try it either way and let me know what you think. Denise

I totally had a HUGE downfall yesterday - I sucked big time (it MUST be in the air!). :( I'm still upset but trying to not beat myself up about this...even today, I was over my calorie goal.

How about 2 bad days. I really blew it Friday and Saturday. Friday was planed as I have decided after not much of a loss to have treat days again. My body reacts better to the jump in calories. However last night was another story. I am doing damage control though. I will be at 1500 calories a day for this week to make up for the extra 1500 calories I ate yesterday. It's like I always say though. Put it behind you and go on. That way it's behind you and does not end up on your behind as Jill put it.

Coffee
Smoked salmon and stirfried veggies (carrot, red pepper, green pepper, onion, ginger, garlic, spring onion, mushroom, egg)
More coffee
Avocado and tomatoes, in spicy tomato sauce, with pine kernels
More walnuts than I should have eaten, but better for me than chocolate....
Melon, banana
Tuna, tomato, cucumber in spicy tomato sauce

And maybe a cup of low fat hot chocolate before bed? :dizzy:

Frankly, my eating has been weird and strange ever since I got back from holiday (3 weeks ago)........lots of fruit and veggie cravings :lol: :lol: , a definite loss of appetite, and I feel nauseous a lot :?: :?: :?: . Other than the Pringle attack :o :o on Friday night, I've been doing really well. And no, for the curious amongst you, I'm not pregnant :lol: :lol: .

Hi Folks,

Hope everybody is ready for the week ahead. I love my crockpot too, Laura and DishyFishy...Farmer's Market's are the best!!! I really miss them with the change of seasons. Gives me something to look forward to next year.

I had a wierd evening (I guess it was my turn) Did great all day and then instead of having my last meal (grilled chicken sandwich and salad) I had a huge burrito, chips and a candy bar. Probably about 400-500 calories over my goal. It was definitely an emotional thing. Grist for the journaling mill. DCM

Thanks for the support guys! I so appreciate it - I've been feeling really down about my eating and so hoping that I wasn't on the path to abandoning my new eating lifestyle... :sad: I really WANT to stick with this but I've been struggling. I think part of the problem is that I've been really SUPER tired lately...I really can't figure out why. I think I'm way more tired than I should be. I do have two small kiddos and I do get awakened several times a night so I can expect to be tired...but not THIS tired. :(
It makes me feel even more overwhelmed than usual. I'm going to the doctor for a check-up this Wednesday so I'm going to discuss it with him. ANYWAY...good day today. :)
