Weight: 132.0

i may be a little over 132, but i'm keeping that weight there, bc i am motivated to get right back there! as of late, my body has been bloated, very full. i guess i'm eating a lot of volume when it comes to my food choices. last night i had a big salad and whole red pepper with my dinner which was also quite large.

breakfast: hungry day...4 rice cakes 160, chocolate 40, oatmeal 200, cottage cheese 150: 550.

snacks: peanut butter crackers...up to around 400 calories.

lunch: big banana 150, veggie burger sandwich 300: 450

snack: change of plans,  I had something different for lunch so i had my lunch here, without banana. 300, then coffee 50.

dinner: salad w. dressing 50, tofu 150, rice crackers 160...around 400.

total: 2150 ... GOOD, considering everything i ate!

ended up with a 3 mi walk at the park :-)

Progress as of today: 3 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

loveray on 03/01/2011:
i know you will make your goal!! i have been feeling bloated lately as well - we can blame it on the moon or something:)

V on 03/01/2011:
I hope you have a wonderful day and I am sure that massage will feel extra sweet after all of your hard work :)

Umpqua on 03/01/2011:
My feeling is that you can't eat too much salad or veggies. I'm sure you'll be back down in a day or 2, you're doing great. Have a good one!

legcramps on 03/01/2011:
drink lots of water!!!

moogy on 03/01/2011:
You are so close to your goal. Further incentive to stick with it and say focused and yes drink lots of water!!

weight was BAD this morning. like 134. i think a lot was bloating/water weight! i hope!!! bc in two weeks, or rather like 12 days?, i was planning on being 129. If not, i'll have to CANCEL the massage. I gotta keep my promises, you know!?


exercise: 30 min hard elliptical.

challenging day today....and tomorrow.

moogy on 02/28/2011:
That is dissapointing, especially as you have been working hard at your exercise. I have my fingers crossed that you drop some of that weight so that you can have your massage. Hang in there HOP, don't give up!!

sounds like a great day!! i HATE folding laundry myself:) xo

Umpqua on 02/27/2011:
I always save the folding for last, and I always have huge piles of laundry :P Have a good one!

moogy on 02/27/2011:
It looks like you have a good day in front of you. Good job with the walking HOP. I have you have a good day:)

This_is_it11 on 02/27/2011:
I dont mind the folding - I just hate putting it all away!! =)

V on 02/27/2011:
I hate laundry :( If I wasn't so weirded out by the though of someone else washing my undies, I would take advantage of the laundry service that does your laundry on the cheap! LOL Have a good evening

saturday morning. spending it kinda lazy. online surfing the web. i want to go out and exercise, but i'm not moitvated to. later, i believe i'll be walking around the mall with a friend of mine - that can count as exercise as long as we walk for awhile. i'm not motivated today as much to get outside....i have an hour to be ready to visit my grandma....maybe just a quick walk on the treamill for 20 minutes this morning, yeah.

132...my goal is that 2 weeks from now i'll dip under 130 :-)

how it's gonna feel: bliss to be under 130 lbs. i cannot wait. it's been 2.5 years and i'm SO READY!

i have a lot going on right now. monday and tuesday i'm taking off from work for training for an Xray job i may get for saturdays. my life is contstantly changing day to day but i luckily have the energy to keep up right now, thank god.

KathyBlue on 02/26/2011:
Ahhh life is constantly changing, that can be a good thing. At least you don't get bored nor sick of it all. Changing makes a significant part of our lives and I think it's very important for someone to be able to change at some rate. I believe it's something we need to learn to deal with, and sooner the better! :)

legcramps on 02/26/2011:
Yay! Have a great day today, and good luck in getting the x-ray position!!!

chidogs on 02/26/2011:
Good luck on that goal! Yeah, unfortunately most exercises bore me stupid. But I try anyway. :) Take care.

moogy on 02/26/2011:
Keep your eye on the prize HOP and you will reach it. I hope you had a lovely visit with your grandma:)

still 132.

exercise today: 30 min cardio, 1.5 hours of weights, back, abs, pushups.

busy day. rough day overall. but i'm happy it's over and i'm about to read a little and then get to bed. almost 1am already!

if i wan't to be 129 in a couple weekends from now, i might not be able to eat 2250 like i did today...and the rest of this week....or maybe i can?!

goodnight everyone. just a few more pounds!

moogy on 02/25/2011:
Now, I am pretty sure you know that if you eat that many calories you will not be able to hit your goal. Hang tough girlie!! Keep your eye on the prize:)

V on 02/25/2011:
Have a good evening :)

legcramps on 02/26/2011:
You know what? You work on upping that metabolism of yours by doing all that cardio and all those weights, and I wouldn't worry too much about eating 2000 calories each day. Just make sure those calories are healthy! I still can't believe you can lift for 1.5 hours and not get totally bored...

i stepped on the scale, no weight change since i was eating maintanance level calories, and high calories, lately. it's ok, no gain either.

but i weighed around 133 this morning.  i am not upset at all, considering it is actually a decently low weight compared to the past two years. i am very happy and will work hard to reach 129 by March 12. I'm proud of myself and i am accomplishing my goal.

so very tired, procrastinated a little, must finish some work at home for tomorrow...

overall, it's been a good (short) week...

sending you all joy and happiness and thanks!

today's calories are approx. 1900-1950.

yesterday's 2450 + today's 1950 = average 2 day total of 2200. fine and dandy!

but must not eat such large breakfasts! well, i'll try, anyways. and MUST GET MORE SLEEP, still!

moogy on 02/24/2011:
Whew! Good going HOP, that was a good weigh in for you. I am glad that you are proud of yourself and hope that you can work toward acheiving your goal.:)

nemogirl on 02/24/2011:
Your body must be a machine to burn through those calories and be in the 130s. That's so awesome. I'd like to work up to that one day. But, for me first, the big hurdle is just making it to 145.

Umpqua on 02/25/2011:
You are doing great! How did your hair come out? I'm sure it looks wonderful. Have a good one!

legcramps on 02/25/2011:
Good for you! Push on!

need a better calculation: dinner was around 700...after finally thinking about it. calories before dinner: 1750

total: 2450...ok, well, that is 2400-2500, haha....ok.


calories today are around 2400-2500. big dinner did me in.  but i stopped.

who knows, i'm not angry or anything at all. hopefully the weightloss will continue. :-)

exercise: 3 miles outside walking.

was exhausted today, lack of sleep. so i'm going to bed early!

moogy on 02/23/2011:
I am glad you stopped yourself. That is progress HOP, other times you would have just given up and had a binge. Good for you!! Good walking will bring that count down.

loveray on 02/23/2011:
hope you are doing well - sounds like it!! xo

Umpqua on 02/23/2011:
Some days are just hungry days. You didn't do anything excessive, so you should be fine. Night night!

V on 02/23/2011:
Nite girl! Just continue to rock it out!

waydesmommy on 02/24/2011:
Sometimes those extra calories can be better than you think...but it's great that you realized how much you took in and stopped. The weight loss WILL continue! Moogy's right the walking will burn all those cals right off. Have a great day!

I have a massage appt set up for March 12th i think...plenty of time, i may be under 129 by then - i hope!

moogy on 02/22/2011:
OK, then it is time to focus and plan so that you can get that massage. You can do it if you really want it. I am sending good vibes and hoping that you keep your calories at your loss level. :)

loveray on 02/23/2011:
yay for a massage!!! congrats on your progress. whatever youre doing seems to be working! xo

legcramps on 02/23/2011:
Decaf is better than none at all if you ask me...

Way to go on the exercise! How the heck did you not end up bored while doing all those weights???

you will do it :-)

hello, good morning!

I did splurge a little bit on Saturday when visiting my grandma because i was overtired and hungry. I ate a bit much and I slightly regret it, but i'm also really glad i didn't overeat the rest of the day and simly ended it with a pretty healthy dinner containing ALL food groups.

I would like to weigh 129 not this weekend to come, but the next. In fact, i'm making a potential appointment for a massage that i can cancel if i'm not 129 when the appointment approaches. :-)

today i will finally get my hair washed, cut, and blown. I'm nervous that the brazilian straightening process that is supposed to last for 6 months is not gonna come out so well. oh well. it was a VERY shady business that i had to deal with this time around. I will probably not be going back to this place and go back to my usual salon next time.  i tried a new place because i had a 50% discount.

Progress as of today: 3 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

V on 02/21/2011:
You are so close!!! Great job HOP!!! Have a great day, good luck with your hair :)

tangalyn on 02/21/2011:
u can do it!!!! have a great day!!!

Umpqua on 02/21/2011:
I'm sure you can meet your goal and get that wonderful massage. I hope your hair works out - my friend just had hers done with some sort of keratin treatment but I don't think it lasts as long as yours will. Have a good one!

moogy on 02/21/2011:
You are going to be so relived to get all that stuff out of your hair. I don't think it was worth the discount!! Have a great week HOP!!

loveray on 02/22/2011:
hey lady! i am still following the nutritionists guidelines - and incorporating more carbs and calories into my diet. i think it is working and at least my energy seems to be a lot more smooth and im generally happier. i think what threw me over the edge was drinking and eating sugar on vacation. i had a nasty week of cravings after doing that, but thankfully the whole grains, proteins and fats have saved me. i am sure ill lose the couple pounds i gained in mexico in no time. hope you are doing well!! xo

selina on 02/22/2011:
That Brazilian hair place does sound shady, but I hope you get the results you want. I know that having ones' hair straighted is pricy, so I hope all will turn out just the way you want... Stay well!

legcramps on 02/22/2011:
My grandma is a food-pusher. When you walk through the door, no matter if you're built like a brick you-know-what house, she'll say "oh my, you're looking a little gaunt" and continue with "here, I made some cinammin buns, try one" or "but there's only two cookies left on the table - someone has to eat them!".

Anyways. That was probably more grandma than you needed.

129, here you come!
