(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 128.0

breakfast: fruit and yogurt: 200.

(BLACK coffee during morning...been doing this for months but not proud of it.)

snack: protein shake 230

lunch: healthy fruit, brown rice, sauteed veggies and tofu! wahoo...so happy. and BLACK coffee...total = 450. great.

world's most disgusting dinner ever (leftover junk i had at work and put in my bag for the ride home before going to the gym straight from work and getting there finally at 8pm: pretty decent type of protein bar 210, fiber one bar 140, two plums i brought for after work 80 at most - they were small, diet mountain dew from store, medium iced coffee from dunkin donuts also on the way home - needed so much damn caffeine to make the gym happen tonight 60. total = around 500 - good.

healthy snack at 9:30pm at home after the gym: tomato 40, big peach 80. total approx 120

total: 1500. perfecto calories....4:30am banana when i woke up hungry...total 1600 = great.

exercise: NO DAMN CARDIO at all = pisses me off to the core.  I'm gonna have a nice round ass by the end of this and wide ass hips ... grrrrr!

anyways, weights for an hour was my workout. I was exhausted and I have more enjoyment, much more, doing weights. So I chose the weights, as I did them Monday and they needed to be done either today or tomorrow...tomorrow I must do some cardio!  Maybe if it's nice, and I get out of work ON TIME, I'll get my a$$ to the park and walk at least 3 nice miles. i hate not doing any cardio.

 

Progress as of today: 7 lbs lost so far, only 4 lbs to go!

KayBee on 10/12/2011:
You're doing soooo good lately! You're my hero. I've been doing good also but then things go berserk from time to time with chocolates, biscuits and any food, overall... I'm going to the shrink on Friday, it's for a psycotherapic program called "Paparocas com Medida" (in English: Nibbling in Moderation) and basically it's for binge eaters and people suffering from bulemia....


KayBee on 10/13/2011:
I just hope they won't come up with those "wait 20 minutes after eating to understand if you're still hungry or not" because binge is so uncontrollable... On the clinic's website says they use the following two books as base: Christopher Fairburn, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-Enhanced, and Debra Safer & co. Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Binge Eating and Bulimia

What are you doing up in the middle of the night? That's got to be tough if you're not sleeping well. But you're doing well. Congrats on your recent loss! Keep it up.

YAY on hitting 128!



Horn_Of_Plenty - Friday Oct 07, 2011
(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 128.0

I am pleased to report that I hit my goal this morning: 128 pounds.

Next goal: more challenging, 125 lbs. (i am short, not even 5'2".  This is a very realistic goal.)

I expect it to take more than a couple weeks to reach 125.  I am reminding myself right now that these types of goals take time and that I should not relapse into a binge because i'm either tired or frustrated.

I am doing very nicely. :-D

breakfast at home: fruits, tea, caramel flavored water with stevia: 120.

second breakfast: egg white on toast with tomato....later a protein shake 500.

lunch: same as breakfast, no protein shake, plums chips: 500.

snacking: plums 100, protein drink 160,  2 munchkins 80, coffee 50: around 400.

late dinner: squash soufflee 300, tomato 40, many chips (fat free type) 220: 560.

total: 2080...oh wow. a bit high, but totally normal.

exercise: 45 min cardio, 45 min weights, pushups.

I want to go to yoga tonight but I think weightlifting would be a better option. tomorrow, i plan on two classes of yoga for a total of 3 hours of hot yoga. Sunday I will take a morning yoga class.  Monday I will take at least one class. (Saturday I may not take if i have to see my Grandma, we'll see.)

Progress as of today: 7 lbs lost so far, only 4 lbs to go!

Runforfun on 10/07/2011:
Thanks for the advice! It means a lot that you took the time to help me :) Have a great weekend! Congrats on reaching your goal!!


grannyannie on 10/08/2011:
Good for you!! Well done! I know too well those last few pounds cling for dear life! Getting close to that stage myself.

Congrats on your loss! What is a munchkin? I assume it's not like the ones in Wizard of Oz :P

Weight: 129.0

again, a low cal day.

breakfast: fruit and small egg sandwich with tomato: 300.

snack: protein drink 200. other stuff: 50 a candy.

dinner: plum 50, sandwich (fried chicken on bun) total 450.

snack: orange pepper 50, orange 100.

total: 1650 pretty perfect if you ask me.

exercise: many pushups (probably 200 in all today) and cardio on the elliptical for about 35 min.  i am ashamed that i don't do more cardio but i don't have so much time lately. i started work at 7am and left at 6:30pm. i had dinner in my car, actually got home around 8 and went to the gym after changing and then got home around 9pm. so i really don't want to do much more - not today - no time in my opinion.

(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 129.0

weight - 131-132 but i am still bloated and PMSing...it will probably drop off soon.

breakfast: large apple 140, hot wheat cereal and milk 200: 340.

weirdest day. i should type about it...but i have got to go to bed NOW. i am overly exhausted, didn't sleep well last night and today was VERY busy.

exercise: NONE. sucks!

calories: 1200...good but i don't really aim to eat this low bc it has a tendency to backfire on me. i tend to binge when i eat too low. but i don't have an appetite and i'm tired. which is good.

goodnight ladies, thanks for your warm comments.  i send you all hugs and love.

aside from the weird day, i worked two hours overtime till 6:30, drove to therapy and 7:30, got home at 9 and now i'm gonna be asleep soon. tomorrow i start work at 7am.. gah!
