Weight: 125.0

I am doing so well that i'm changing my goal: 121 lbs is my new goal!  by the way, i've lost a total of 10 lbs. I don't feel like I have because the weightloss has been really slow, which is good bc it's easier to keep off this way. but it's so weird to think i was 10 lbs heavier... i feel so good about this weightloss. so, so, so good!

can't wait for 121!...It should take a bit - and won't happen in just one week. I'm gonna work at it, accomplish it.  by the end of this month, i do hope to be getting close!

 

exercise:

1. short bike ride before breakfast for about 20 min.

2. afternoon 1/2 hour bike ride and hour nice walk around neighborhood.

big breakfast: fiber one and milk 400 cal, and a bit much on the chips (probably even a bit more than i'm listing, but so tasty) 400 cals for chips. 800 total. very tasty.

fell back to sleep for a couple hours i think.

lunch:greek yogurt w. added cinnamon and chocolate flavored stevia drops, and cooked cranberries 150 calories., more yogurt, frozen kefir - total 450.

afternoon snack: 50 drink.

dinner: at the diner, a really good, humungous, turkey burger, mushroom barley soup, and a salad: 750 at most.

total: 2050 or so = AWESOME for the weekend!

I am so happy and proud of myself, good eating all weekend, no binging at all. very successful weekend.

 

Progress as of today: 10 lbs lost so far, only 4 lbs to go!

Have a wonderful Sunday!


Hantty on 11/06/2011:
I don't think I'd ever be awake enough to go for a cycle in the morning - I'm impressed :)


grannyannie on 11/06/2011:
LOL. Yes, woodpecker is a bird, but we put the nuts out for the smaller birds.


V on 11/06/2011:

2450 calories, good day.  indulging but no crazy binging.  just an hour of slow walking though. oh well, great day - no work!

I weighed in at 125 this AM. :-) 9 overall pounds, gone. Of course weight fluctuates, maybe I will weigh 126 tomorrow lol. I will probably weigh in sometime at the end of next week again. :-) I am very happy and proud of myself.

I have lost an overall 9 lbs. that is fantastic! :-D  I am on a roll and I am looking foward to continuing. Sometimes, at a point like this, it's so easy to give up because it's a slow process - but slow and steady wins the race.  I am going to continue. I will win this "battle." But to tell you the truth, I am enjoying a low weightloss. I feel good and happy about it.  To lose it all at once defeats the point of a learning to do it gradually and keep it off. My goal is to do this for the long run - My goal for life is to weigh in the teens again.  I am short, 5' 1.5" so this is a healthy goal. Realistic goal. I feel really good about this goal. It does make me nervous now, because its a lot more weight to lose, but I have seriously done a good job so far. 

My weightloss has been 2 lbs per month, on average. This is good - 1/2 pound per week.  I would like it to be faster, but who's complaining?! Weightloss on any level should be celebrated as a succes.  I insist this is how I feel and I hope that this helps some of you who may feel discouraged.

 

breakfast: 400 banana, fiber one, milk.

lunch: protein bar 300, coffee w. milk and equal 70

snack/afternoon meal: large apple 100, cooked veggies w. little bit of noodles 200. 300 total

1070 good.

dinner with grandma: chips, more veggies/noodles that i cooked, half sandwich?

snack tonight at home:

Weight: 126.0

126 this AM. at least something is working and a success. nice and steady loss. around a pound a week, maybe every two weeks. good. just two more pounds to go. maybe by the end of the month, but never rushing it.

around 1850 cals.

exercise: not enough cardio (half hour) and weights one hour.

i worked 7am-5:30pm and was in the worst mood all day. i feel horrible for my boss and coworkers. i didn't do anything wrong but i just wasn't very talkative. :-(

i literally sat at the computer all day. horrible job for me.

Progress as of today: 9 lbs lost so far, only 2 lbs to go!

Weight: 127.0

excited to step on the scale tomorrow, it may even show 126 if i am lucky....i know this is too much info, but with my period this time, i have been having lots of muscle contractions in my abdomen and i've been pooping seriously many times today....i feel like my intestines are near empty and clean as a whistle. haha. yes, i really did write that.

 

breakfast...............150.

work..............

i need more beauty sleep haha. not enough. woke up with a pimple.

today work was 7am-almost 7pm. you try to sit at a computer that long!

took a short break at lunch to step outside for a few minutes. beautiful weather, thank god!!!

anyways,

snack in am: 300 (but some of these calories were actually eaten at lunch - it was a large protein bar)

lunch: 450.

snack: 50

dinner: 450

snack: 50

total: around 1450-1500.

the only thing, and maybe it's not even a good thing, about working so much is SOMETIMES, when really, really, really super busy, my calories will be lower. but this is not always the case and with extra and too much stress, it can backfire into horrible eating on the weekend. so i have to be careful and i will never eat too low bc that never is helpful or healthy. i am not a starvation kinda chica!!!

exercise: when i got home after having dinner in my car, i jogged in the neighborhood (nice weather!) at 8pm till almost 9pm. jogging and walking.

Progress as of today: 8 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

legcramps on 11/03/2011:
yeah, work...... damn thing.
