I had a beet/carrot/celery juice this morning and that's about 200 calories (max)...I didn't have time to make a lunch for work, so I grabbed a container of raspberries, about 10 almonds, a container of Soy milk and that is about 500 calories, 23 grams of fiber, 15 grams of fat and 36 grams of protein...we'll see how the day goes! :/

Good morning all! Ok, just when I thought I had built up some willpower... Last night after posting my meals, I went on a binge! :( I won't even begin to disgust you by telling you what and how much I ate! :barf: I think it was because I took in too few calories yesterday. I've been doing so good for the past 5 days! I was even down 1.5 lbs! I probably gained that back last night and then some! I'm feeling pretty down right now, but I have decided to go to the gym this afternoon. Usually I wouldn't because I'd talk myself into believing that I've ruined my whole weight loss effort with that one binge. Ok, I just wanted to vent/confess! I'll be back later to post my meals for today! Everyone have a great Friday!

sjdphc,
it's good that you realized *why* you binged. Under 1000 calories is definitely not enough so it was your body's way of telling you to eat more! I hope today goes better and you make some (slightly) higher calorie healthy choices. You can do it!

Depends on how much you ate! Factor in at least 2 T oil for a standard dish, plus 1/2 a cup full-fat coconut milk or coconut cream. This dish (restaurant style) is deceptively high in calories, fat and sodium.

I didn't eat that much of the sauce. I put brown rice on my plate and then put the veges and chicken over it with a few spoonfulls of sauce. The bowl was full of sauce that I didnt eat In part because it was so spicy! I'm glad I only eat out once a week because it's confusing counting the calories!

Hey Everyone...
I am new here...I am very overweight for my age...I am 14 years old weighing in at about 300lbs....:( ...this really makes me depressed..I have been working out about 4 times a week and watching what I eat...this doesnt seem to be enough...someone help me...I need some advice:?: !

meecha
12-05-2005, 12:51 AM
First of all, welcome Depressed....you have come to the right place for great support and friendship. You have taken the first step by knowing you need help and coming here. Just keep up the exercising and watching what you eat and you will be on the right track. Just remember you have to burn more calories than you take in to lose weight. The ladies here are great inspiration, we all slip every now and then and it really helps to post here to be held accountable. We never judge because we have all at one time or another been faced with whatever slips you may have.

Today:

B: scrambled eggbeaters w/ 3/4 c. redbeans and rice mixed...sounds weird but very yummy. 300 cal
L: baked lays, turkey 460 cal (was on the road)
D: Taco salad (homemade no shell) w/ tomato, cucumber 325 cal

Total calories= 1085 may have a snack, 300 under what I like to be for the day.

Congrats to all of those that were faced with temptations this weekend...you all did really good! :carrot:

Another "lost weekend"...I have got to get control over my weekends! Thursday night was our office Christmas open house...I ate very little and spent most of the evening running up and down the stairs from the kitchen to the main conference room replenishing dishes, restocking the bar, etc. But, Friday was bad. All those yummy party leftovers all over the place! I pretty much nibbled all day. Saturday and Sunday were my usual not eating enough, and when I did eat I did NOT make very good choices. I am going to start planning my weekend meals just like I do the weekday ones. Hopefully that will help.

Anyway, today's eats...
B: 1/2 c. cottage cheese, 1 orange
s: minestrone soup
L: Lean Cuisine margherita (tomatoes and onion) pizza
s: almonds, Diet Coke
D: chicken breast, rice, broccoli
s: big glass of skim milk

Exercise today was a 2 mile WATP tape

So, Meecha, how's it going with the smoking? You're braver than me...I need to quit too but I just can't face quitting and trying to lose weight at the same time! I have cut down to 2 to 3 cigarettes a day - that's about the best I can do right now. Good luck to ya!

Good morning gang! I have been on this message board reading posts for a few days and I decided to become a member. I really need some support on this journey. I am 5'5 145lbs and would like to loose about 15-20lbs. I have been working out at least 5 days a week so I am feeling very frustrated that I cannot loose more weight. I think this forum will help me to keep track of my food intake. So here is today so far...

B: 1/2C egg beater with sliced deli turkey, 1 med. pear 200c (7:15am)
S: 6oz low carb yogurt 80c (10:50am)
L: Lean Cuisine meal chicken w/green beans 220c (will eat at 2:00pm)

If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them. Take care! :D

Hi yogachick30 and Welcome!

You said you were working out 5 days a week what kind of workout do you do?

i know that the thing that has helped me the most is to add weight training, and to actually make my cardio more productive by doing interval training (like i will run 1/2 mile, slow down for about 1/4 mile, and then sprint 1/4 mile) and repeat 2-7 times

Hey there. Thanks for the welcome! I do weight training 2 days a week and the other 3-4 days are hour long step or kickboxing class. I also do an 1.5hrs boot camp class every Sunday morning with a trainer. I have been trying to keep my calories under 1500 per day so I don't know what I am doing wrong. I feel like I need to starve myself to loose weight. I don't want to do that but I'm at my witts end!

yogachick... :wave:
I also used to live in Columbus, and an OSU grad.....
Now residing in California though.

I think this is might be what I need. No I do not restrict any types of food, but rather try to avoid overeating. I am hoping by recording what I eat I will be better off at avoiding bad choices.

So here it goes:
Yesterday.
8am breakfast:
1 big cup of tea with 1.5 tsp of sugar
2 hard boiled eggs
1 slice of bread with thinly spread Light Smart Choice butter
1 slice of swiss cheese (not very thin, they had them pre-cut)
2 slices of Smoked Chicken (Butterball brand)

a bottle of water

12:10pm lunch
a large salad: cucumbers, spinach and mixed greens, tomatos, feta cheese, cranberries, walnuts, in 2 scoops of rasberry dressing
a dinner roll
a small bowl ~ 6oz or less of chicken noodle soup

4pm
1 Light Cafe Creations bar of Chocolate Expresso (Calories: 130, Fat 25, total fat 3g, Carbs 27g: fiber 2g, sugar 17; protein 2g) not a great choice but every few days I do allow it myself

6:30pm dinner
chichen breast (has 2 sides) - fried one side chopped into pieces with onion. Used 2/3 of table spoon of oil. Ate 1/2 of the amount fried
Cucumbers with salt and 1 tbsp of sour cream (non light, organic)
hot water (1 bottle warmed up). no tea.

1 bottle of water during and after workout

---can anyone roughly tell me how many callories I had for the day?

Today
8:30 am breakfast
Finished yesterdays chicken (made for dinner)
1 cup of tea with 1.5 tsp of sugar
cut 2/5 of bread slice and covered with homemade ragu (made by grandma out of skwash, and zuccini, and oil) - 1.5 tbsl of ragu

10:15am snack
12 baby carrots.
1/2 bottle of water

That's all so far.

Without knowing exact serving sizes/ingredients there's no way to accurately tell (by the way, does that chocolate have 25 grams of fat or 3 ???).

yogachick30- do you cycle your calories? like eat mabye 1200 monday, 1400 tues, 1600 wed, 1400 thur, 1200 fri...and so on?

your workout stuff looks really good, you are crazy, but also do you try to incorporate some exercise all day? in addition to running and weights i usually wear a pedometer around and do from 6,000-10,000 steps a day (about 3-5 miles) either from walking around the office, getting off about two stops early on the metro, walking to the grocery store...all that adds up to about 20-35 extra miles of activity per week (roughly an additional 10,000 cal of working out) i dont know what else to really tell you...except maybe you just hit a weight loss peaking and are going to hold steady for a bit as your body catches up...

just try to stick with it for a few weeks before you lower you cals too much and dont starve yourself (from personal expereince it does terrible things to your mood and mostly makes you a b*%#@ to be around)

I don't really do a cycle of calories. I do battle eating after dinner. I am not really hungry but I can't stop myself from making 4-5 trips to the kitchen getting snacks, e.x- f.f cottage cheese, P.B on a pita, fruit, s.f jello. I am so good all day but for some reason I have such a hard time at night. I live alone and I do get lonley at night. This is probably not helping matters. But even with some snacks in the evening I still am not eating more than 1600 max but most days it is 1100-1400.

disclaimer: personal view only.
For me snacking can lead to a possible binge, so I am training myself not to do snacking. Rule one (as I also live alone) no snack food available, or if I do have some it is carrots! or cucumber! Rule two, if I cook I cook just enough for one time, at worst, for two, but right away I pack and freeze the second portion. For me going and microwaving it is work, so I am lazy to do that much for just a snack.
Rule three, I made it a 21 day challenge no food after dinner!
Being under calories I think is great, but eating too late and to close to bed time is not that great, less is processed by body and turns into fat, and the body digestive system does not get enough rest when you sleep.

=== just updating my message ====
went on Fitday and calc'ed today's items... quite good on # of cals, but bad on amount of fat and carbs! very bad... For carbs 139 were sushi (rice) it killed me...for food it was the vegitable oil in the salad, which gave 14g of fat out of the 24. ( i know I am anal when it comes to analysis, i even work as an analyst)

My food was all messed up today. I went to Macaroni grill for a special dinner tonight and ordered the simple salmon which they brought out raw in the center. So I sent it back and they gave me another piece of fish raw in the center. So I went to subway to get a wrap and didnt' realize it was so many calories so I'm over today :(

UGHHHHH I kinda binged on junk last night, im so angry with myself.
The last 4 days have been really stressful, and I guess i just finally cracked. BUT im still determined to not give up , and thats something i should really be greatful for, because in the past i always gave up after a binge! I have to keep reminding myself this is a lifestyle change, not some temporary 'diet'

Still feel pretty crappy about it :(
