Weight: 123.0

good morning. pants are now very tight. will have to make adjustments or I will be facing worse consequences next week. 

Good, satisfying breakfast (the only way to break binging cycle in my opinion): 2 small eggs 120, 2 slices thick fiber one white bread 200, 1/2 avocado 160, 2 strawberries 20: 500, perfect.

snack: one of my bars, tea. 200 or so.

lunch: chicken, spinach, other half avocado, 2 slices of the same bread as in the AM: 600 or so, good.

snack: big apple, maybe also some almonds: 300

dinner/snack: maybe one more bar of the more natural, healthier kind. 210 or so.

If i do the light bar for dinner: calories will be 1800 which is more what I need to be having.  As you can see, breakfast & lunch are pretty balanced and healthy. I did take a multivitamin, extra vitamin D as well, & need to buy the tums for increase my calcim intake as well (this is all on doctor's recommendation)

good day, goodnight to all of you.

I will be emphasizing calorie count, and not just counting as I go through the day, I will have to plan better now - as to be more in control of the calories I am ingesting.  My goal is to eat around 1800-1900 daily (maybe less if I can manage without binging) over the course of 1-2 months.  I do have a goal to lose a few pounds (I will be able to tell by how my jeans/pants fit) by summer (July). 

My goal is to not continue any further weightgain, I've reached my upper limits as my clothing is a bit too tight now & hasn't been like this for a long time (around 1 yr I was able to totally maintain the weight I was at before this injury)  The year before consisted of a healthy 10 lb loss.  I had found my weight EASY to maintain & I was regularly eating aroune 2200 or even slightly higher calories per day!  so, maybe eating 1800 will be fine, even 1900. lol. I have bad luck with binging & don't want what happened this weekend to happen again in the next couple months.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

I know the feeling and you sound really determined to keep this in check. Have a great day.

V on 04/22/2013:
I am sure you will meet all your goals you have set..Have a good day <3

...handling the stresses of life poorly by binging. today it was only the only "fattening" foods i had in my apartment...lots of sesame oil on lots of bread/pitas & salted pumpkin seeds. after having breakfast already.  maybe it's a good thing i don't keep any sweets or unhealthy snacks in this apartment! still, i've overeaten a ton this AM.

upper body weights, no swimming (again!)

calories: probably around 3500.

hey all. happy wednesday. I went to physical therapy (just electric stimulation to the muscle, not actual exercise) and then had a healthy dinner at my apt. i started to drive to the gym but made a wrong turn and got lost. it was close to 8:30, which it is now & I decided it would be best to go to bed early & get some much needed rest. tomorrow is a new day & I will swim.

calories around 2100. no exercise except for some situps/abs

i definitely got some fruits and veggies in.  good fats including avocado, olive oil, and even almonds. good carbs.  good proteins including eggs, egg whites, chicken.  only one protein bar. one cup coffee.  even a plain greek yogurt.

wow. a good day. no exercise though :-(

I felt so much better this morning compared to yesterday.  Even more, I felt great after the weight routine I did at the gym yesterday.  Today's plan is to NOT be lazy, do some leg work (just upper as I cannot do much else) at lunch & swim in the evening, stopping by my apartment first to see if the goggles arrived...I ordered them with quick shipping as it's impossible to swim laps for long periods of time without them.  My first two pairs were dollar store goggles and broke after 1 or 2 uses!

breakfast: almonds 150, hot fiber cereal with almond milk 200, strawberries 50: 400, good.

snack: bar??

snack: bar??


lunch: satisfying: bread, chicken, maybe even a slice of mozzerella cheese...some leftover sauteed spinach?

well, i am still concerned with my legs, they aren't feeling too well yet at all.  even a little walking tends to bother them after 10-15 min.

workout: 30 minutes in pool. can't wait till i can swim the freestyle stroke well!  mostly breastroke.

calories: too much sugar, around 2250-2300.

snack: bar, coffee with lots of regular milk

Happy Weekend!!

exercise: upper body weights routine, abs, and pushups!   :-D  So happy to continue with some of my routine....and nice to NOT go to the pool (I don't love it but I am content that I will use swimming as primary form of cardio for the rest of my life because of the multitude of benefits it provides.)..maybe I will like it more more after some swimming lessons in which start in May!)

7-9am Breakfast & snacks:500

11:30am fiber one w/ protein bar and coffee with milk 200

snack: another one of those bars, couple grape tootsie rolls at gym: 200

3pm late good lunch: tofu and sauteed veggies, salad too, and some of a wrap: 450 or so....and so healthy! thank g-d...i must eat better (at least try for 2 meals a day of "health".  really, i only condsider my lunch the healthy meal of the day in general at work.  breakfast usually is not fully balanced and dinner is many times non existant and only exists in terms of bars/shakes/etc.  i know it's bad, convenience is something i always reach to despite the lack of health and natural nutrtition that bars and shakes will NEVER provide (unless it's a veggie shake made with the magic bullet!)

1350-1400, good.

dinner with best friend: will be primarily healthy, wherever we go!

total calories: maybe as high as 2500. big ass dinner with a lot of oil involved in the veggies that were sauteed.  otherwise, i had grilled chicken and some italian bread. lots of oil... i am hoping that calories are more around 2200, of course!!

maybe bed early. tomorrow is nice...need to finish food shopping - but maybe i'll do that tonight....and i will go to the pool tomorrow.  Then, gonna go out with a guy i know - for dinner around my new area....and come back here. we'll see what happens after that, we have dated before and have a...sexual...history.  we get along real well, i like a lot about him, not sure if we could be a pair marriage-wise, but it's nice to go out with him on occasion & always have a nice time. 

I am thinking we will even go to the liquor store to pick up something for after dinner, come back here & watch a DVD....forgive me, ladies, but this is what I like....I am not extravagant or fancy...and i would rather cut to the chase....and like I said, we've dated before.  it's just not steady, partly bc of me, i have cancelled a multitude of times or rather just told him i wasn't available. he has a MUCH EASIER schedule than me, no overtime, works close to home, off some weekdays.  so, in the past, i didn't make the effort to fit my schedule flexibly with his....maybe things can change for a lil bit...
