Any feathers interested in an accountability thread?
 
Hey everyone,

I'm having a hard time sticking to my calorie limit, I seem to have lost my motivation. I've been maintaining for about 6 weeks now and I'm 10 lbs away from my goal. Any one interested in posting how your diet goes each day for a while?

armygirl808 01-15-2012 05:22 PM

Yes, I am!

LisaTcan 01-15-2012 08:39 PM

Yay! I was beginning to worry I might not get any takers! What's your diet/ exercise plan armygirl?

Tuca125 01-16-2012 01:37 AM

I will try.... let see how it goes.

Sure! I apparently put a shreeching halt to the "getting out of the 140's" thread.

Today I will either walk outside (it's cold here) or get on the elliptical. And mind my eating of course. Oh I have a couple of DWTS dvd's too but I'm such a klutz!

Welcome wfonseca3017 and srmb60 :)
Ok, so my plan is to stick to 1200-1350 calories a day...I'm not exercising because I had some injuries over the holidays. I've been stuck 10lbs a way from my goal for a long time now. I'll report back to night and tell you all how I do!

Hi all. I'd love an accountability thread! My goal is to count calories and stick to about 1200 per day. My other goal is to not eat any of the goodies left in the office kitchen. And I try to work out 3-4 times a week.

LisaTcan 01-16-2012 03:15 PM

It's so hard to stick to to 1200 calories a day! Here's my day so far:

B =rye toast, rice cake, 2 tbls natural peanut butter, 1/2 cup oj, black coffee
400 cal
L= falafel salad (made at home) 1/2 a chocolate bar
550 cal

So I'm already at 950 even though I've had a pretty healthy day (well except for the chocolate). I'm aiming for an apple, a kashi granola bar and a tea at school which should be about 300 calories and bring me to 1200.

Hi - can i join? Have just got back from 4 weeks on holiday where i didn't watch my diet at all (which was planned), so today is the first day back to discipline and i could do with some accountability for a week or so whilst i get back to a good routine!

I don't calorie count, i just aim to eat small healthy portions, which i judge the healthiness of in a random unscientific way!! Basically at the end of the day i give myself a rating of one of the following for a combination of calorie intake and exercise (based on my knowledge of my own body!):

"good" = i would lose weight if did this every day
"average" = i would maintain weight if i did this every day
"bad" = i would gain weight if i did this every day

well, it works for me! So my aim in this thread is to avoid any "bad" days in the next week, and make sure that i have more "good" days than "average" days.

I'm not in a huge hurry to lose my Christmas weight as i'm still in target range, but i want to make sure that i get back in to good habits and that the scales either stay steady or ideally start to drop a bit back to my lower-goal weight!

Thanks for starting the thread Lisa!

Will check in tomorrow and tell you all how Day 1 goes.....

armygirl808 01-16-2012 07:12 PM

I'm planning on just eating healthier and trying to aim for around 1400 calories a day. As for exercise I am training for a half marathon and doing P90X. I should actually start counting my calories as that would probably help quite a bit.

Have you considered constructing your nutrition of whole foods only? Meaning fresh fruits, veggies, produce, eggs, unprocessed goods.

Example:

B- 4 egg whites (70) + 1 cup spinach + 1/2 large grapefruit (40) + black coffee

L- huge garden salad with fresh raw veggies (80)+ 1T evoo (120) + 1T vinegar + 3 oz grilled chicken (100) + 1cup homemade veggie soup + iced tea

D- 4oz baked white fish (150) + 1 c steamed broccoli + baked sweet potato (100) + medium apple (100) + hot tea

Snack- huge smoothie (could split into 1/2 after lunch and 1/2 after dinner)= 1c pumpkin + 1c unsweetened vanilla almond milk + 1 small frozen banana + stevia + pumpkin pie spice + 1T natural peanut butter + 1cup ice (320)


That's a lot for around 1200 calories (and I rounded up) . :)
I find it helpful to aim for 10 servings fruits/veggies per day.

I really like this idea. :)

Hi all. Well, I messed up at dinner last night. We made chili and I told myself I wouldn't have the cheese and sour cream on top like I usually do. I totally caved. And had a glass of wine. I'll try to eat more lightly today to make up for it.

tyla 01-17-2012 02:15 PM

I'd like to join. I'd love to start losing again. I'm going for 1350 cals during the week and 1400 cals on the weekend. I plan to exercise daily.

Good luck, everyone! :cheer2:

Reporting in for Day 1, and it was a "good" one - a bit of a worry if i can't be good on the first day though!

Stacked up the fridge with salad and veggies and had 4 small meals yesterday.

This morning i've been out for a short run, and am now hoping for a "good" Day 2!
