(count calories/exercise/relaxing thoughts!)
Weight: 140.0

calories worked out pretty good despite not sleeping well last night! good. bc i can't take any crappy days anymore with calories...

total calories are 1780....dinner was about 750. high but mostly healthy. and today was mostly healthy. the end.

exercise: at school i did a lot bc i was walking all around the hospital pushing heavy things. not all day, but for some of it. and tonight i'm taking off from exercise. anyways, i did about 20 miles in the past three days....so, i say it's ok to take tonight off! lol.

 

Progress as of today: -15 lbs lost so far, only 20 lbs to go!

Sorry to hear about the guy thing, I know how frustrating it is. But if it isn't working now, it won't be working five years from now. So I say to hell with it. Just take care of yourself and love will find you.

sheeeeeet!!! I can't sleep! what a wonderful start to this week, i tell you!!!!! :(  It's already 2:30am..........

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

breakfast: sandwich of egg white 60, greens 10, avocado 150, bread 240 and a yogurt 60. total: 520 good stuff!

snack: strawberries, bar.

snack diet drink

800 cal before dinner.

dinner? (bbq later at my house...) 900 cal at dinner. approx. was healthy stuff actually. lots of meats.

total: 1700-1800 or so. nice job to me!!!! wahoo!

exercise was 9.5 miles walk/jog AND biking for a little while! WAHOO. i CANNOT mess this up....gotta continue. need to look good.....

i am depressed a little over this guy though. :( he's an ass. didn't want to meet up enough. so, i'm not contacting him. if he doesn't make any more attempts (he did but it didn't work out at all....) to hang out, i'm done. just wish there was some other guy waiting lol. that's life i guess......don't want to hang out with this company right now.... :(

i hate it when i get into these moods.....and yes, the guy blew me off. therefore, i'm done. shouldn't this be the other way around!? oh well.  he says he's tired and going to another state for lunch tomorrow to meet up with someone. so i'm NOT texting that a$$hole back. it is unfortunate i wasted so much time with this dude. i think i may delete him off facebook once again. forever. i don't need that crap in my life. however, for the moment, i'm gonna leave him on. i don't want him to think he is able to piss me off this easily.?! yeah, i am not taking it all too well. loser. i know!

 

exercise mania today before bbq....

Progress as of today: -15 lbs lost so far, only 20 lbs to go!

You go girl! Yeah, it sucks to hurt but I do the same thing....keep on keeping on! One day we will have shed this weight and will be stepping lively lol. As far as the guy you've been talking to....dump his a**. There are plenty of fish in the sea and if this one isn't supposed to be, nothing you can do to help it along will work. If it doesn't work now, it won't work five years from now. Move on, enjoy your life!! You are a really cool chick

Thumbs up from me too :D When you count calories do you write things down as you eat them or do you remember and do it at the end of the day?

that time of the month is coming and i feel both the pound or so i've regained and also some bloating. it's not as bad as it could be though. and my face is not looking very bad either. i'm thankful for both!

eating as gone nicely. :)

total calories so far: 1050 before dinner! i say nicely done :) and eating was definitely healthy for the most part. veggies will be had at dinner and a microwave meal. yay. i've bought a selection of tasty lean cuisines that are more carby (carbs) but are tasty. i want to eat for the enjoyment bc that will help prevent binging in a lot of ways...

so, calories after dinner will definitely be under or at 1550. i am happy about this and also confident in my ability to be able to lose weight. i KNOW i CAN do this alone. i CAN. not can't.

if i do end up meeting with a psychologist, which i may call to look into on wednesday or so depending on my schedule, it is more to talk about my apprehensions about my future success at any career. otherwise, i'm doing OK. not good, not bad. but somewhat satisfied.

as for the guy, we are in touch right now. nothing more. this is weird, but i wonder if he wouldn't date me bc i'm jewish?? i'm not very religious at all, it's more like my upbringing. i continue with the traditions i've learned. just like anyone who celebrates any religion. i didn't mean to bring up religion to offend anyone on here, sorry if i did.

looks like your head is screwed on straight. yes, you can do this! but dont be afraid to consult any help or support if you need it. i need daily help and support!! i still screw up all the time. as for the boy, i would hate to think that is the reason...and these days, unless things are super-serious, this shouldnt even be a shadow of an issue! hope you had a great night. xoxo

Have a great TUesday!


grumpy on 05/19/2009:
Guys are stupid. Has nothing to do with the fact you're jewish. If it was the other way around, he was and you werent maybe, but i doubt it crosses his mind, unless he is REALLY religious. It's probably because he's an idiot. :) xoxox

grumpy on 05/18/2009:
did you binge on dates? girl, have you been eating your calendar? :) Don't worry, those things come and go, and you have made them stop before, so you can do it again. You know what to do. Same as me and weight loss. I am not losing because I am not doing what I have to do. On another note, I met a Sharon there, she is a PHD student. So 3. :)
