Busy day! Sounds like you're doing great so far today! McDonalds isn't my fave choice although from time to time I buy it. I like their chicken wraps. They're fries are addicting so I try to avoid them like the plague! I do give in once in a while but right now i'm feeling motivated enough to stay away! Wishing you a great day and a relaxing evening! Concrete Angel

loveray on 04/04/2010:
thank you, love~ im so happy you feel great and im sure you look awesome too. i will go get that book- i have a couple books that are along those lines, but this sounds like something i could share with seth too, to help him better understand my struggles. im not sure what the right thing to do in terms of calories is. im considering going to a nutritionist for a consultation to see what i am and not getting in terms of nutrients and calorie balance. hope you have a wonderful rest of the weekend! her name is "Grumpy" xo

THANK YOU for dropping by my post today...You made me smile!...

CONGRATS ON YOUR FEELING MUCH BETTER!!!!!


greengirl on 04/04/2010:
Well done HoP. It's great to hear your are doing well and feeling so positive. Good for you :-)


panda22 on 04/04/2010:
I'm so glad to hear you're feeling better lately, and congrats on the loss! =) Hang in there and keep it up! Good job with your eating, and I like how you stated that you're "full and done" and aren't calling your extra calories a binge. I guess I have to look at my evening the same way...I ate extra treats but it was because I was hungry, and now I'm full and don't feel bad. Thanks for the inspiration! Goodnight!

wow. weird weekend so far. but good. mostly good... :-)

foods during the day saturday added up to 1450...

then i slept, from 7:30pm-1am. totally passed out in my bed, totally skipping the plans i made since i didn't wake up from my alarm or the doorbell when my friend came over to go out. i'm such an ass! i'm sure she'll forgive me...

the, i woke up around 1am and had something to eat soon after: oatmeal 160, yellow raisins 150, yogurt 80, and some leftover charoset 120 perhaps: total: 510

total cal approx: 1960.

just some casual walking today. friday was casual walking as well. no structured exercise.  i'll get to the gym, if it's open, for a full workout tomorrow.

Progress as of today: 1 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

lately, i've been confronting my feelings....even around food. i've been having many "up" days in the past couple weeks. i'm so happy with how i've been feeling and choices i've been making.

breakfast: coconut water 80...2 hard boiled eggs 160, matzah 50, charoset 200.  500 approx.

snack: some kind of natural bar: 130

lunch: more charoset, fruit, chicken: around 600 perhaps healthy selections from chinese....sooo good. buffet that was ordered by the doctor where i work. wow. around 600 probably.

snack: when i was hungry: fruit 120, bar 130....when i was not hungry but i realized this and then stopped: dried fruit: around 250 total here: 500.

total so far today: 1730. and then whatever dinner i make. i think i'm gonna just have taco bell. i'm in a "calorie counting" mood today. for the past few days, when i was super busy, i was just happy and getting through the day and finishing without even wanting to count calories, which were definitely not bad.  i was eating really moderately, doing really nicely. i still am. but i feel some "panic" in my thinking right now. i'm a bit feeling out of sorts. not sure why. i plan to walk to the library and read. no other exercise, even though i was gonna force myself to do more.

dinner: salad and a large orange 200, microwave meal lasagna with bran crackers 400, yogurt w. lots of apple butter 150: 750 and actually i did feel it was a bit too much for dinner. felt sorta gross after.

total cal: 2480. not too bad.

gym: 10 min cardio and full weights, back, abs, pushups :)

bed early probably.
