YEAH, baby! Rocked my 4th day in a row of getting up early to do 30 minutes of WATP :carrot:

I did change my dinner yesterday to 2 Boca "chik'n" patty sandwiches, plus I had pudding after dinner, PLUS I had some dill hummus on unsalted brown rice crackers. I would guess I ended up around 2000 calories yesterday total (I didn't enter the rice crackers into my Fitday). But the scale didn't seem to mind this morning, so who am I to argue? ;)

As for today, I'll loosely plan on:

Carnation ready-to-drink breakfast
yogurt
Chinese buffet :o
2 chik'n patties on light wheat buns w/swiss cheese and hummusI'm sure something else will get squeezed in there at some point.

1 plain bagel with plain cream cheese (~400 cals)

S - none

L - less than 1/2 cup Italian rice salad (it's done - more space in the fridge!!) (150 cals)
1 8 oz container plain yogie (80 cals)

D - At a meeting where there will be subs. Will have veggie, maybe turkey if I'm in the mood. (~500 cals MAX)
Total: 1230 cals. Hmmm...I'll add some chinese buns to the mix. :)
Exercise: none. Car problems so very annoyed.

That wasn't too bad. I didn't lift weights but I made a valance for the computer room.

I read the "Planning for the Day" thread each day (trying to get some ideas of what I should be eating) and I don't know how you guys do it! I eat a lot more food then you all do (but stay within my calorie count) 1200 to 1400 calories a day.

Some of your daily meals seem way to low in calories to me. Is it just me or are some of you really starving? I know I would be.

I'm losing weight but should I be cutting down that low?

I don't post on this daily planning thread I post on one of the other ones (but I like to check out a variety of them to get different ideas). Anyways I know when you look on mine you would probable think the same thing about me but I eat about 1200 calories a day. I see that there are two ways to eat a lot of types of food in small quantities or a few foods in larger quantities. I tend to only eat a few foods each day but in larger quantities (for instance my dinner normal consist of chicken, veggie, and some type of carb. but I have a decent size potion of each). I don't like to many different types of food each day because then I end up eating the same food for several days in a row because I live by myself.

If you are loosing while eating between 1200 – 1400 calories a day then I would stick with what is working. Each person is different and have different calorie needs.

I'd have to go and check my fitday but I think by the time I had a snack last night I'd had about 1350 cals.
I didn't really do much for exercise ... unless you count sewing:)
Before anyone drops below 1200 cals, I'd suggest they upped their exercise.
There's also much to be said for a comfort level. Like RemeberHowToSmile says .....If you are loosing while eating between 1200 – 1400 calories a day then I would stick with what is working

hmm...I just looked back through the posts, and I don't see anyone who looks very far below 1200 calories (maybe 1, but 1 day won't hurt much as long as it's not an everyday occurence for weeks on end). Maybe some meals are low (like my breakfast yesterday was only 150 calories followed by only an 80-calorie snack), but others are higher to balance it out (which I knew ahead of time, which is exactly why I had low-cal foods early in the morning!).
