just another day in diet world

Posted by: billie In: big butt|brain vs body

Today has kind of dragged by. I’ve got a headache and i’m ready to head on to bed. I’ve got lots to do tomorrow.

I have being staying focused on my diet plan. I’m getting close to becoming obsessed, which is exactly what i need to do to get a good start.

I managed to step on the scale and whip out the measuring tape first thing this morning. I didn’t make coffee this morning thinking that might help me drink more water (maybe that’s why i have been getting a headache all day). I didn’t manage to make myself exercise today. I have stayed under on calories 3 days in a row.

I have been working diligently in my little journal to become mindful of my mental madness. I have got to get my head in order, not just so that i can stay on plan to lose the weight, but so that once i get down to a normal size, i don’t just go back to gaining again…like last time.

Here are my current stats:

  • 35 yrs old, 5’2″, 205 lbs
  • bust – 42 1/4″
  • chest – 38″
  • arms – 14 1/2″ each
  • waist – 37 1/2″
  • waist @ bellybutton – 45″
  • hips/butt/belly pouch – 49 1/2″
  • hips/thighs @ saddlebags – 47 1/4″
  • right thigh – 27 1/2″ย  left thigh – 28″

activity: not much of anything

food: ff cottage cheese (180) & strawberries(30) with splenda. sunflower kernels (180), salad (20) & dressing (90). strawberries (45) with lite cool whip (40), greek yogurt (100) with honey (30). ham (70), mixed veggies (no carrots or potatoes) (50) roasted with olive oil (120). strawberries (55) with lite cool whip (60). diet coke.

total calories = 1070 1137 … oops i forgot to add the 1 dark chocolate square i had tonight

I don’t like the no-coffee headaches! Are you going to cut it out completely?

I don’t think so. I do love my coffee. I’m just trying to push water right now, get back into that habit.

Hi – I think your start looks good. For a long long time the only way I could lose weight was with incredible focus so I know what you mean.

Hang in there this week!

Hey, I saw you commented on my blog. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you, I didn’t get a comment notification in my email!

I totally believe you can do the C25K. Trust me, if *I* can do it, you can too. I’m a formerly obese ice cream binging pack a day smoker. Beliiiiiiieve me lol.

I do plan on running… I add a little more mileage every week. I’m not sure where I’ll stop. For now I like it, so I’m gonna keep it up ๐Ÿ™‚

And you’re right about being focused. I think it’s ok to be a little obsessed if you keeps you on the right track.
