(calorie counting, all foods, LOTS of veggies)
Weight: 113.0

I'm making a good effort to eat both before and after exercise!

Last edit, 8:55pm:

today's WONDERFUL exercise: 2 hrs 20 min (bike, walk, 1 mile jog)

total aug exercise: 19 hrs, 20 min

calories: 1370.

i didn't plan well. however, at least i got a lot of physical activity in! And, intead of doing some strange dinner, I stuck to microwavable dinner portions.

I went to the park twice today (it's really close). First, I did 3.5 miles with a friend. Then, I went back and rode my bike, did a one mile jog, and then a little more biking. It was a great day. The weather and the shade and breeze were amazing. GREAT day. ----------------------------------------------------------


arg. I did in fact get a little off with the calories. I got hungry and gave in around 4pm. I had been snacking on like 4 plums since 3pm, but they were no help. So, i added a red pepper and a chicken sandwich around 4:15.

calories will definitely be over 1000. they are 1060 right now. however, i should not and will not give up on today. Calories will be below 1400 for today and i will continue to have any lean cuisine i want for dinner, no matter what the calories.

i will not be limiting my lean cuisine choices by calories anymore. yesterday i did, in order to not go over 1,000 calories. lol, as long as i make it through 10 days without "giving up," that's what i'm looking to do.



i got a little off track today...because i woke up starving and majorly early. i've been having sleeping problems the past 2 weeks. but, calories were still be right. i'm working hard to maintain my progress. 10 days.

i have faith in myself. At the moment, i am under far less stress...although, my face/acne is still clearing. i hadn't broken out in months...but, the stress of the end of grad school and my last summer classes brought it all upon me again! so, hopefully my face will be all better in a week or so.

since i'm under far less stress..and i don't have to take any more classes just yet...i can focus on finding a focus...lol...

i can set physical fitness goals and health goals. I want to reach my goals and change my body these last 5 years of my 20's. i wasn't able to focus on that from 20-24. turning 25, i want it to be about me. i'm an independant person. this is what i want.

today i went to the park with a friend of mine. we walked 3.5 miles. whenever i walk mileage, i record it as 20 minutes per mile, even though usually i walk a little slower. so, the total so far is 70 minutes! oh yeah! i'm going back for more later and i'm bringing my bike. yesterday, i walked a total of 7 miles! fantastic!

Progress as of today: 0.4 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Donkey on 08/12/2007:
I hope this evening has gone well for you. I think you're doing fine. It might be more beneficial and realistic to set a calorie range rather than point-blank 1000 calories. As you say, if calories are below 1400, then that's still good with you, considering that your eating was healthy foods.

Sometimes a little thing like getting up late can derail a whole day. Don't let that happen to you. You can do this!!!

hi! ok, plan went well today. however, i'm changing it slightly. it'll still be 1,000 calories. Breakfast will be a little smaller so that i can have 3 snacks, instead of two everyday. therefore, i'll be eating 3 meals and 3 snacks: eating 6 times a day instead of 5.

i think i ate a little over 1,000 today. so, i'll record it as 1010. lol, it was a large red pepper that did it.

calories: 1010

exercise: 140 minutes (2 hrs, 20 min!) all cardio

total aug exercise: 17 hrs!

Progress as of today: 0.4 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Donkey on 08/11/2007:
So far, so good! Hopefully this will help you get back on track. I think it must be a relief to your system too, not to be ingesting so much food. Best of luck to you on this. You are right to focus on what makes you happy and what is important to you. Jobs will come and go. They don't really determine your self-worth. They are a means to an end.

harleygirl79 on 08/11/2007:
I do find it difficult, sometimes, I don't want to cook for everyone else. But I do, cause I'm a mom. LOL Thanks for the comment

Good Morning, Saturday morning:

So far, so good. I have had breakfast as well as my first snack. I may have the two snacks and then lunch, rather than with lunch inbetween beceause of my schedule. As long as I stick to the meals, that's my only goal for these 10 days. ====================================================== 55 min exercise

total aug: 14 hrs, 40 min

ok, I have a 10 day plan for myself. I will succeed. I am a smart, intelligent person. I have a lot of knowledge of nutrition. I have planned satisfying meals. there is not reason why i can't succeed. after 10 days, i'm upping my calories and keeping my exercise up. after this plan, I am going to do alternate days of 1700 and 2000 calories per day...and see what happens.

my plan: 1,000 calories per day. (10 days.) now, i know its difficult, but after binging for 6 days straight on a range of 2000-4200 calories, this will be doable. it's 10 days. that's it. after that, i will have 1700 calories the next day. followed by 2000 the day after. then, 1700 again. and so on.

the plan, finally: Breakfast: egg whites, toast, plum.

snack: light and fit yogurt, plum or another fruit.

lunch: wheatgrass shot, shirataki noodles, any lean cuisine meal

snack: light and fit yogurt and a fruit.

dinner: wheatgrass shot, shirataki noodles, any lean cuisine meal.

now, what's good about the plan: It allow for a VARIETY of food in lunch and dinner. I sometimes have had problems with variety. It gives reasonable carbs, proteins, fats. It can be filling and offers voluminous serving. Like, it's not cakes and pies or heavy meats and sauces. it's portion controlled.

negatives: low in calories. salty lean cuisines lead me to have cravings for sweets. i need to get through 10 days. I have to remain in control, because i feel as though i have lost all control these past 6 days!

please give me your input.

shirataki noodles have "no" calories. they are all fiber, from a yam. look them up online, miraclenoodles is the brand. by adding them into a lean cuisine, the meal becomes more filling because there is more to be eaten!

next, i've been applying to music jobs. we'll see what happens in the next few weeks of summer. If i don't get a job, i'm moving on...to start another career. however, i do know that teaching pays a good salary and summers are "off." so, if it works out, it works out. A career is not my life...and whatever it is i do, what i want most is to be able to live out my life...exercise and enjoy nature and all those kind of things, along with my career. so far, i haven't been able to do that...probably because of school and working on my degree while working.

as long as i can reach my goals and fitness potential, i'm happy. I don't want my progress hindered beceause i don't have enough time to exercise and be healthy. i obviously need to work on my habits with eating and consuming food in a healthy manner. the less stress, the better.

in many ways, i hope teaching doesn't work out. in some ways, i hope it does. there are other jobs i probably could get right now, but they wont pay as much. and, i need to be able to support myself. that's a big factor in all of this. my mom mentioned "billing" but i don't know how serious she is. she's not a supporter of me changing careers. also, you really don't need schooling to be a medical biller. so, i really don't know! however, if it pays decently, then i'd look into it.

i need less stress in my life. whatever it takes.

1600 calorie breakfast followed later by "lunch":

1. taco bell grilled stuffed burrito: 700 2. large slice of pizza with eggplant and ricotta: 1,000 3. Starbucks blended drink: 160 3. starbucks muffin: 420 4. starbucks blueberry coffee cake: 310

total so far: 4190

all that taco bell and pizza and starbucks was eaten together, once after the next. my stomach is majorly full!

my favorite part was taco bell.

Progress as of today: 0.4 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

tourguidebarbie on 08/10/2007:
i love Taco bell too.. lol. Those cals add up fast though, but it's sooo good! :)

ad_vitam on 08/10/2007:
Pizza w/ eggplant and ricotta sounds yammi...oh well. At your weight I'll allow it to myself:) Have a good workout today to shake 50% of calories off.

Kia on 08/10/2007:
I'm going to lookk up those shirataki noodles . Wheatgrass shot, I presume is a liquid thing, how does it taste?

ad_vitam on 08/10/2007:
Your new plan seems sensible food portion and variety wise, although I am also concerned about you eating pre-cooked frozen food twice a day - beside being salty it has to contain preservatives, read chemicals, which indeed may cause cravings plus plain not good for you. I don't know if it's convenient for you but I'd advise you to cook simple but healthy meals yourself and take them in containers to work, for example. Also, read lables on the yogurts other than natural, they usually have modified corn starch among main ingredients. I would opt for natural Greek yogurts (I like Fage brand). Amount of fruit and veggies you are aiming at is very good. I know you can handle this overeating issue because you ARE smart and intelligent. Good luck!

Donkey on 08/11/2007:
A plan only works if you're going to stick to it. I think you can do it, but I do hesitate about endorsing low calorie levels (1000/day). That is the worst thing you can do to break a binge cycle. Think about it, is all I am advising.

monet0239 on 08/11/2007:
hey sweetie.. looks like you have a great plan.. :).. have a great day!

jon'smom on 08/11/2007:
Sounds like a great plan. Good luck!

Weight: 113.0

one month till my 25th birthday.

even though i said i was contemplating not measuring foods and counting calories, i'm not ready to make a step like that right now.

total calories = 3110

total exercise minutes today: 110

total aug minutes = 13 hrs, 45 min


its around noon. calories: 3,000.

maybe i'll stop binging when i'm ready. hopefully that's before i gain 10 pounds.

ummm...i may just skip counting and measuring foods tomorrow. something has to give.

Progress as of today: 0.4 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Donkey on 08/09/2007:
Hugs to you, HoP :-( You know, maybe it would be good to take a break from counting and such. See if that helps change your perspective.

gerri on 08/10/2007:
just keep up the daily exercise .. youll work of those extra calories in no time ... u go girl

total august: 11 hrs, 55 min

i am not paying to do yoga anymore. I have taken a sort of break from using weights also. i am limiting my use of money as i haven't had an income since June. At least the health insurance i personally pay for doesn't realize this and that is good, as long as i pay my monthly bill.

binged again today. its 11:51 am and i've had 2450 calories.

Progress as of today: 0.4 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

mcwoo40 on 08/08/2007:
Hi, if you are feeling full try and lay off food till later on,or even better still go and burn some cals off,me included!!Have a great day whatever you are doing,Julie

Donkey on 08/08/2007:
I think you should call your doctor and ask for an appointment. When you are there, talk about anti-depressant options.

fattyfatty2by4 on 08/08/2007:
Hang in there! I've been where you are time and time again!! I agree with everything donkey said below. The next day after a binge you tell yourself you'll do better and then the minute you don't eat what you had planned, you give up and eat everything in sight. It's a vicious cycle and I really truely feel for you right now. Pick yourself up, don't get mad or angry or put yourself down. Maybe go do something to get your mind off of food, take a walk, walk around a store, or something.

greengirl on 08/08/2007:
HoP I'm sorry you are still struggling. You do seem to be down. You are so good at giving other people encouragement I hate to see you down like this. Try not to undo all the good you have done in the past. I hope your stresses are sorted out soon :o)

weightlossyoyo on 08/08/2007:
Hope everything starts going better!

maria777 on 08/08/2007:

(calorie counting, all foods, LOTS of veggies)
Weight: 113.0

calories = 3555

i am now going to attempt an hr walk on the treadmill...it's 9:14pm. Maybe anti-depressants would help!?

so today wasn't better!

calories were 2855 up till 11am. yes, not kidding. I will probably eat more later. I need to stick to my plans. I even planned my meals today, but obviously didn't stick with 'em! I will alot myself up to 3555 for today.

ok, so, the plan is to eat 1200 calories for wed, thurs, fri, and sat. I know i can do it. If i do that, my calories will be more balanced for these 6 days. 1200 is VERY hard for me.

Progress as of today: 0.4 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

mcwoo40 on 08/07/2007:
Hi, this makes the two of us that has gone OTT on the cals,tomorrow is another day hey!!Julie

Donkey on 08/07/2007:
A couple of wry observations, if I may... (If you are not interested in wry observations, then do not read. That is fine too.)

Wry observation #1: I think planning for 1200 calorie days only serves to set you up for bingeing later on, and thus failure to accomplish your goal. You yourself say that 1200 is "VERY hard" for you to do. Then don't do it! I shudder to think of what this is doing to your metabolism.

Wry Observation #2: Punishing yourself by bingeing will not solve any of your problems. It won't help you get a job, it won't help you with money or relationships. It only serves to destroy your self-esteem from the inside. The world is harsh enough, and you have many battles (and rewards) ahead of you. A pity it is to be your own worst enemy when the world has enough of them for you already.

Now having said my piece, I want to give you a big cyber hug. Yesterday's calorie intake was not that bad. Most young, active women need around 2600 cals just to maintain. Today will probably be a little high, but you can't undo what's already done, so the next best thing is to resume with a "normal" meal at the next mealtime.

greengirl on 08/07/2007:
Take it easy HoP. I agree with Donkey that keeping your calories too low might set you up for another binge. Good luck with keeping the cals lower tomorrow, but dont punish yourself by overcompensating. I'm sending you a hug to, all the way from England to cheer you up!! ***hugs***

GG on 08/07/2007:
Holy Moly! What do you eat to make your calorie in take so high?! That is nuts: I am sure it is all healthy foods though, right?! I mean you and I eat a lot a like so...I am not too worried: unless of course the box of cookies was STARING AT YOU in the face saying "Eat me! You know you want a bite" hahaha! For my blender I use a Kitchenaid blender: I feel it mixes the best and really makes a yogart type texture which is AMAZING! I have thought about ice cream makers but they all say "add milk or yogart" or something like that and I do not eat dairy so well...that does not work for me. All i use is Stevia, Ice Cubes & Emergen-C coffee! It is great great great! A really nice PICK ME UP in the afternoon when I am DRAGGING! Although I have already had it 2 times today: @ 1:30 and 2:30! hahahah! I wonder how many more times I will have it today! Probably atleast 2 more! hahaha: Oh well, the vitamin C is needed for sure!! Good luck on your weekend calorie in take!!! Snack on LOADS of veggies and if you need a "dip" use some mustard or tomato paste: My favorite!!! haha!

ad_vitam on 08/07/2007:
Hi! You have my support as well. I second what has been said to you: learn not to get emotional and personal with food, it's just food - not praise, punishment, love - it doesn't posess any human qualities, so treat it accordingly: it will not give you any consolation whatsoever. You know my story, you know how many pounds I am trying to lose - 76! It all started like that for me - trying to sink my emotional problem in food, and then I was 200 before I knew that.IMHO you're little stuck on calories and it puts pressure on you: try not count them, just eat healthy food in moderation, give yourself a break from constant counting. You can do it! We're behind you to help.

maria777 on 08/07/2007:
I know what you mean about the 1200...that is what I'm 'aiming' for each day through Thursday...then I will probably have a food binge beginning Friday cause that is when Hubby and I leave for our weekend getaway, Lord willing!

maria777 on 08/07/2007:
Thank you! Big Smile to you!

gerri on 08/07/2007:
they r right you know don't sent your self up to fail .. setting realistic goals will help you keep on track alot easier ... hugsss and thumbs up to tomorrow........and thanks for your encouragement in my dairy ,, good tip

ad_vitam on 08/08/2007:
Are you seriouse about anti-depressants? Keep them as the last resort and only if you are depressed. Try to find interests outside the fridge, kitchen shelves so you won't have time to think about food. I know few people with emotional eating problems who have looked at this problem differently after reading The Mood Cure/ Program to rebalance your emotional chemistry ... by Julia Ross. With the help of this book they practically eliminated theit eating disorders. First and formost - find the source and work with it. Good luck!

Weight: 113.0

total calories = 2510

total exercise minutes: 140 min (1 hr, 50 min in walking, 30 weights)

total workout for august: 9 hrs, 50 min

I binged because i was relieved that my summer performing in the orchestra was over, but also because i am not relieved that i don't have a job. it's really pathetic...the binging, that is! but, i honestly am getting over it...no matter how many times i say it, i'm getting closer.


crud...really bad binge. I don't know what got into me! I binged a total of 2250 calories in one sitting...after a breakfast of just 150 calories. Now, my total so far, 11:58am, is 2400 calories. oops!?

not good. not good. I keep telling myself i want to be thinner...more lean...but i am just wrecking my body this way (eating the way i do.)

yesterday, i only got 45 min exercise in...not 1hr, 45 min. I got really tired after my last concert.

so!? what am i to do!? i guess make tomorrow a better day.

Progress as of today: 0.4 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Donkey on 08/06/2007:
Oh dear... What's bothering you?

Tell me, who buys the food that you binge on? This used to be a HUGE bone of contention when I lived at home. My mother would get so angry with me, because they were buying food for a family of 5 and I'd eat most of it :-(

After I moved out on my own, I had more control over what was in supply, because I learned that there are many foods that I just CANNOT have in the house. Potato chips, chocolate chips, peanut butter (sometimes), cookies (for the most part), etc.

Try to be kind to yourself for the rest of the day. Obviously something's troubling you...

jmarie60 on 08/06/2007:
I agree with Donkey. I just don't buy the foods I tend to binge on. Granted when I need to binge, carrots aren't as fun as double chocolate chunky cookies, but I am so grateful that I didn't have the cookies in the house. Then again it's easy for me since I am single nor do I have roommates.

I binge when I am an emotional wreck or bored. If it's emotional, face the problem or at least re-evaluate the situation. If it's because you're bored... clean the house...go for a walk.... call an old friend....go to the library and pick out a good book....Get on DD and write an ENTRY!

We're all here for ya!

weightlossyoyo on 08/06/2007:
You didn't do too bad, don't be so hard on yourself!

jmarie60 on 08/07/2007:
Happy one month and 2 days until your birthday!!!!!!!

hollybelle on 08/07/2007:
Hi there. I really liked what jmarie60 and Donkey said - never thought about it like that. Also agree with what WLyoyo said - you I didn't so THAT badly. It's just that feeling of being out of control, isn't it? Exercise is awesome.

Weight: 113.0

so, i had a carb-rich breakfast: 1360 calories. it included THREE peanut butter sandwiches with 2 tablespoons for PB on each one. i also had a banana and kombucha tea. hmmm...what else did i eat...not sure. but, i remember it added up to 1360 calories.

i then ate a lunch/snack much later. it was a protein shake that i tried to turn into ice cream...but my blender stinks...the other one that my mom doesn't want me using worked better. i'm going to return this one tomorrow...and try to get something better! and i had some veggies with that.

then, next time i ate was another binge...not on carbs...but i wanted to have my intake just below 1800...instead it's 1965 for today.

calories: 1965

exercise: 45 min. all cardio.

total august exercise: 7hrs, 30 min

Progress as of today: 0.4 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

ad_vitam on 08/05/2007:
That was some breakfast, ah?:) It makes me smile reading every time about all the food you eat - what a healthy appetite! - I know if I ate like that I'd never be able to keep the right weight. Makes me admire you more for keeping your weight so admirably low. Keep it up (I mean down:)!

fattyfatty2by4 on 08/05/2007:
Your amount of exercise is awesome! Great job! I do need to keep more fruits and veggies at hand for when I binge, it definitely wouldn't do the damage that a box of cookies would do :)

Donkey on 08/06/2007:
Ooo that peanut butter will get ya every time, don't it?

Weight: 113.0

total aug exercise: 6hr, 45 min

exercise: 30min...elliptical

calories: 1550 (i sure hope that the two souflee/kugel things i had had truthful nutrition facts labels..if not, my calories are much higher, lol!)


it's been a good day...except that i have not exercised yet and it's 5:25pm

...i had a slight binge before. I'm nervous because the thing that i binged on was a potato kugel...like a potato souffle...that supposedly is a "healthy delite" and contains only 70 calories per serving. however, due to how thick and dense it was, i don't know if I can believe it. I had all 4 servings. I totally hope that this company is telling the truth!

i think i'm going to try something new in terms of eating/exercise!

GG: your idea to make "ice cream" and slushees was GREAT!!!!! Thank you! I've been making ice cream out of flavored protein shakes! Spiruteen is the brand. Today, i had the peanut butter chocolate. from one packet of just under 100 calories, I was able to make at least 2 full cups of "ice cream!!!!" It's sooooo worth it!

I am definitely going to the store tomorrow morning to pick up more packets of all kinds of flavors.

i also tried an unsweetened banana...but i had to add like 3 packets of splenda (which does have a few calories in it). so, the sweetened ones are more worth it, in my opinion. they are about the same in calories.

after exercising for the next 7 days, i'm going to make myself an ice cream from these protein mixes. they are soooo good! i love 'em! such a great change of pace.

so, for the next 7 days: breakfast, lunch, dinner, plus at least 3 shakes a day! there are sooo many good flavors: smores, chocolate, vanilla, cookies and cream...the list goes on...

i totally need to exercise! i'm going to go to my college gym tonight, since the other gym i belong to is closed pretty much all weekend except for saturday morning. as an alumni, i get free use of the university gym.

foods i had today: tuna, many plums, 2 peaches, light and fit yogurts, an entire package of carrot souffle (really good!), an entire package of potato kugel, 2 protein shakes (peanut butter chocolate, banana), 1/4 lb of salsa (not spicey, like just diced tomatoes and onions with spices and a little salt)...i feel like i'm missing something...

Progress as of today: 0.4 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Donkey on 08/04/2007:
I am going to have to try your idea (well, GG's idea?) for the "ice cream", since that really seems to be a pitfall for me. Do you buy your protein shakes stuff at the drugstore or Walmart or grocery store or what? Where would I begin to look?

Donkey on 08/05/2007:
I'm glad I'm not the only one suspicious of the calorie contents listed on packages!

GG on 08/05/2007:
Ha! I am so glad you liked my idea! It is especially GREAT in the summer months!!! I would try and look for the emergen-C in the coffee flavor though so you can reduce your calorie count even more because the coffee emergen-c has no calories. I used to eat a lot of the spiru-tein stuff too and it is REALLY REALLY good but I am not a huge fan of SOY products and the first ingredient on the label is isolated soy protein...and these shakes have a lot of sugar per serving...and I am sure you know that excess sugar consumed turns into extra pounds....there are other flavor concoctions you can mix up to make ice cream....you should check out the website: Stevia.com or Naturesflavors.com - They have great flavor concentrates!! Just be sure to read the labels before you buy!!! :) Even though I may have busted your bubble you should not feel down because those shakes are a lot healthier than TONS OF other things in this world so if you cannot find the things I am talking about you shouldnt feel guilty about eating your "ice cream". Just keep your eyes peeled at the grocery/health food stroes or on line!!

Saturday AM entry:

Today I almost had a binge session for breakfast...but I guess i chose to eat foods that are satisfying and filling enough that I didn't! I had a really odd breakfast: tea/water, two large plums, light yogurt, and teryaki tuna...bumblebee makes it and its coated in a really good sauce with sesame seeds. It's really good and I bought a ton of it yesterday. the tuna is only 160 calories...my whole breakfast was 320 calories.

later, i'm going to make a slushee/sorbet of a spiruteen brand protein shake with strawberries and ice in it! I cannot wait and I hope it comes out right with the blender. GG gave me this idea when she talked about making "ice cream" out of coffee emergen-c. I may try that...if i ever get around to buying that flavor online.

hi. today i took a break from cardio because my legs have been feeling really heavy and tired!

total Aug: 6 hrs, 15 min

today's exercise: 2 hr, 10 min (yoga, bike, weights)

calories: 1500...but it could have been much less...i splurged on dinner, 480 calories.

dinner included 3 red peppers, 3 tomatoes, 3 plums, 1 peach, teryaki salmon! it was a bit much fruit. but, better splurging on fruit than bread or cookies!

Progress as of today: 0.4 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!
