Default 120 Days to lose it

I've set a goal to lose the weight I gained back in the next 120 days. I made an excel spreadsheet to track my daily weigh in, a 5-day floating average, calorie intake, activity and of course, location since I'll be traveling extensivly over the next few months. I'm also trying nutrisystem for about 9 days. My mom had leftovers from her failed attempt that she gave to me. I'm tracking my calories and macronutrients (protein, carbs, fat) on a program called CRON-o-Meter that I downloaded for free from a calorie restriction website. It also has a place for notes so I can vent my diet angst.
All I know is that I have to lose this weight. Its screwing with my head being this heavy again. I've never felt more worthless and like a failure in my whole life. Especially coming at this from the angle of having lost 100 lbs and being enrolled in a nutrition program at our university to become a dietician. Plus, I don't have anything to wear. I've been wearing the same 3 or 4 outfits for the last two months and it sucks knowing I have lots of other clothes that I can't wear because I'm a failure. At any rate, if anybody wants to join me, I can forward you information, just PM me or post here.

Hi Mango30

I'd love to join you .... I'm going on a Fijian cruise starting May 9th so my goal is pretty similar ..... about 15 kilos by then .....

At the moment I'm not tracking ..... but maybe I should .... I have just started eating healthier, excercising more, and decreasing portion sizes ....

Can definately relate to the not having anything to wear ... and I hate shopping at this size

You sound like me! Every problem in my life is "solved" with a spreadsheet. I have schedules for everything!

Lol, I'm glad others are interersted! And yes, I am so OCD that life without spreadsheets is not a life I'm willing to live.

Alright, on to day three and days one and two were okay. I've worked out both days and I've stayed on plan for eating. This morning I weighed in at 192.25 so a 2.75 lbs loss has made me happy. Last night I sat in a dry sauna to warm up, my feet were so cold that it was hurting all the way up my legs and now my legs feel better. I did 30 minutes on the elliptical last night. I've been doing lunges and squats and crunches every night and my legs are very sore, it hurts to sit down, but once I'm down I feel fine...lol!
Nutrisystem sucks. I hate the food. Of three meals and two snacks yesterday there was not a single thing that was appitizing. Gladly I only have 7 days left. After that, I'll handle food on my own. pre-packaged food tastes like pre-packaged food, there is no way to even trick myself into thinking its good. My son wants to have fajitas tonight for dinner and I know I can make those very healthy and low calorie so I'm going to do that tonight instead of eating a NS dinner.

Mango! You are not a failure. You took a side road that made you double back. Looks like your back on track and kicking some butt.

Who said spreadsheets and lists are OCD? lol I am definitely OCD then. Also about cleaniness and germs, oh crap.. I guess I am a germ freak too. OCD and a freak lol

I came across a webiste you might be interested in, the recipes look pretty darn good!

http://www.amysmithsrecipes.com

She did the NS program and still uses their ideals in her recipes... I plan to try a couple of them.
