Day 81 was 1 for 2 for my routine--good breakfast and walk--breakfast only.

Day 82 was 0 for 2 for my routine.

More of the same. Pooped out on the exercise--of course I did some housework and a little bit of other routine activities, so I did a little!

I'm going to try again to get in all my activity today.

Plan for today: Circuit workout, NTrack, jog/walk

Have a good day!

Looks like you're getting in some good exercise! That is REAL GOOD!!! Big Smile! Hope you have a good day!

Good luck with the routine this week. Have a great day :o)

I just read what you wrote about the wrist test to determine whether one is large, medium or small boned and tried it. My thumb completely covered the nail of my middle finger! There is no way that I would consider myself "small boned"! I have been "chunkY all my life, never slim or slender even in the days when I was at my smallest at 117. Having heavy legs does that!

I'm writing down and tracking my food today. It's a mixed bag, but this morning I did get a good breakfast for once! A bit rainy out, but I'm hoping to get in a short walk at the very least--walkwise!

I've been eating with relative reckless abandon--haha! It'll come to a screeching halt soon. I have no interest in writing it down (as of today) or tracking it as of last week. It happens like this every so often. It's not worth fighting. And of course I have to get back to weight training in the next few days too. That's life!

I KNOW that you can get back on track and get back to that 150 you were at in Nov 2006....are you under a lot of stress? Just feel hungry...have cravings? Once you get back on track, it will get easier to resist eating unwisely...I KNOW you can do it! Have a good evening!


Justine6Robert3 on 05/24/2007:
I do love your attitude of just not fighting it and than moving on!!! I also had a horrible day today, I had chips, chocolate, I over ate for all of my meals, you name it I was stuffing it in my face. I've been a little off track the last couple of weeks, I need to get myself back under control!!!! I have been doing fitday....well, on most days! I think I need to start making entries more consistantly here again, it seemed to work for me. I know you can get it back under control and I think your totally right.....sometimes we just have to let it happen and then move on!

Isn't it strange how sometimes we have that great urge to eat right, exercise and lose the weight, and everything just falls into place, and then it goes away and we're lost in a sea of bad eating and laziness??! I don't understand it but I know you'll get back on track soon. Like you said, there's no use fighting it, just do the best you can for now. Have you read Dr. Oz's book yet "You: On a Diet"? It explains so much how our bodies work with the foods we eat and the exercise we do. I've never read a book like this before about dieting so if you have time, I highly recommend it. Just hang on, in time, it will happen. And have a great weekend!

You are not daft biscottibody. When it's time to call a halt you will do it, for the sake of your health. Have a good weekend :o)

For my activity lately:
Tues: Walk 60 min
Wed: Walk 45 min
Thur, Fri, Sat & Sun: Nothing
Mon: Walk 60 min; Yard cleanup 30 min

Days 71 & 72: Walk only. Days 73-76 were 0 for 2. I did take a long time grocery/miscellaneous shopping on Saturday, but since I also slacked off on counting, it's of no consequence.

I painted and refurbished a mailbox, but that was hardly physically demanding.

Day 77 was 1 for 2 for my routine--good breakfast and walk--walk only.

Just a quick update. I'm down 2 pounds on my weigh-in today. (I am back to LOST more than GAINED since I started.) I'll do measurements next week. I've just been thinking things over and I'm rather content with where I am at the moment. Neutral. I've been procrastinating like a big dog and so, what other result can I expect from my behavior. I hate that I can't get into my favorite shorts, but that's not really the end of the world for me:-) Maybe it should be! *shrugs shoulders*

I'm not going to beat myself up, I don't even feel bad. Feeling bad or disgusted with myself simply doesn't motivate me. In fact I'm still pretty pleased that I haven't gained even more. I made the end of last week a little more stressful than it needed to be and I didn't do any activity to speak of.

My motivation has to come from knowing that I'm furthering my health and well-being to the fullest extent. I'm not doing that RIGHT NOW--it will come in time. Or not. If I go so far out of the groove and don't recognize it, then I deserve whatever I get, right?

I just have to go with the flow for the time being, I'm not going to force myself--just yet.

Oh, about the "private challenge"--God I hope I don't win it--Yikes!

Interesting op-ed: Death by Veganism. Keep in mind it's an op-ed, I haven't explored the claims made.

Hi biscotti,

Interesting article on vegan parenting. My initial response would have been to agree wholeheartedly, but I know that's easy for me to do because I'm not vegan. But I do feel irritated when people say things like, "What are you going to do when you have kids - you're not going to raise them as vegetarians too, are you?" Of course I wouldn't force my kids to be vegetarian, but I probably wouldn't go out of my way to give them meat either. And I don't think there's anything wrong with that because I feel they can get all the nutrients they need from other animal products like eggs and milk. But I guess if I were vegan I might have a problem with that. And then there's the claim that vegan breast milk lacks omega-3 fatty acids, in which case it isn't enough for vegan mothers to feed their kids animal products - they have to actually eat fish themselves in order to give their kids the best start in life?! That seems a bit much to me. Surely one could just eat a bunch of walnuts or take omega-3 supplements instead?

Thanks for your comments, by the way, especially on my link to the picture - yes, that's my hubby! And we thought it was bad picture too (taken at work)!

As it happens, I went with the black olives on my pizza, though I can see what you mean about the utility grade taste. On a side note, it never occurred to me how weird tuna is as a pizza topping (I know you didn't comment on it but everyone else did). I've never had it on pizza myself but it's very common here! Oh well, at least French babies are getting enough omega-3 fatty acids in their breast milk! ;)


maria777 on 05/22/2007:
Hey, there! Congratulations to you on your progress!!! BIG SMILE!!!


Soon2BThin on 05/22/2007:
If my memory serves me, you were the one who recommended the book "Worst Pills, Best Pills" awhile back to me. Anyway, you may have saved my life! I read that the Avandia I was taking was bad for ANYONE! No one should be taking it, they said. So I stopped taking it. I thought my diabetes wasn't that bad anyway and I could go back to controlling it with diet and exercise. Now it's all over the news that it could cause heart attacks in some people!! Anyway, now I am taking apple cider vinegar everyday because I read it was good for lowering blood glucose. And I guess it's working because my readings are doing very well. So I just wanted to thank you (unless it wasn't you, then I'm embarrassed) Funny how some things we say here could be saving someone's life without us even knowing it! Thanks again!

For my activity: Walk 45 min; Sawing/bundling limbs 45 min; Airdyne 17 min/3.9 mi

Day 70 was 1 for 2 for my routine--good breakfast and walk--walk only.

An absolutely horrific weigh-in today. I am tough--I can take it, but if my weight is up AGAIN next week, well I might just go off the deep end, ya' know!

And as for measurements, I'm up a little more than 2 inches overall from last week--so I have nothing there either. The only thing I have is a good feeling about getting back into exercise--it'll have to sustain me until I get back on track otherwise.

I know I need to dial back the eating several notches. And I think I can do that--at least for this week. The one thing I think I've cinched is getting that long walk in nearly daily--it's a good time for me to forcibly divert my attention.

Plan for today: A little bit of yardwork/bundling limbs, NTrack, jog/walk

Have a good day!

weightlossyoyo on 05/15/2007:
Your exercise today was execellent, good job! Don't worry about 2.5 lbs that could just be water retention, pay close attention to salty and high carb foods the day before a weigh in, and be sure to drink plenty of water.

I know how you feel about the weight going up. I know it's just a number but it makes me angry when mine goes up again. I try thinking of it when I exercise and that way, I feel like doing more. And keeping busy with whatever I can do keeps me from eating so much. You can do this, get back on the wagon and remember, baby steps! Have a great Thursday!

For my activity lately:
Tues: Nothing
Wed: Walk 60 min; Mowing/Cleanup 2.5 hrs
Thur: Walk 60 min
Fri: Walk 45 min
Sat: Nothing

Day 64 was 0 for 2 for my routine--good breakfast and walk. Days 65, 66 & 67 were 1 for 2--walk only. Day 68 was 0 for 2 for my routine. Didn't do any of my planned activity on Tuesday.

I'm going to try to renew my commitment to change as the days go on--broken record . . . broken record . . . broken record! I have taken a long walk several days this week--that's something!

I went to buy gas to finish mowing and what did I see in the ice cream case--Starbucks Mud Pie. I'll try anything once. It's like a drug dammit! It's not huge like a Dove Bar. It's expensive, premium coffee ice cream in an easy-to-eat form and just my size--haha!

I don't seek these things out. But after I realized I just had to have another, I found them at Walgreens for about half the price of the convenience store, so there are two of them in my freezer right now. The good thing about things like this is that I get them out of my "craving" system over time. Then I can take them or leave them, so I figure after I've had about a dozen or so in total, I'll be okay!

Yesterday in Texas History: On this date (12 May) in 1942, construction began on a German prisoner of war camp some twelve miles northeast of Huntsville in northeastern Walker County. This construction also marked the origins of the town of Country Campus. The POW camp had a capacity to house 4,800 men, providing housing and medical facilities, a clothing shop, barbershop, laundry, bakery, cafeteria, commissary, gymnasium, guardhouse, fire station, and motor pool. In addition, clubs for both officers and enlisted personnel were provided. Prisoners held at the camp were leased as laborers to local farmers. The camp was deactivated on January 25, 1946, and the property was donated by the government to Sam Houston State Teachers College (later Sam Houston State University) and renamed the Sam Houston Country Campus. The buildings were adapted to serve as dormitories, administrative offices, classrooms, and recreational facilities. Buses shuttled students between the country and main campuses. A post office was established at the site in 1948, and a year later the community reported a population of 1,000. By 1964, however, when the post office closed, the town reported 425 residents and one business. In the 1980s some of the old buildings, a golf course, and pastureland remained at the site. Country Campus in 1990 comprised sixty residents.

BTW, Country Campus is an odd name for a town--sounds like a Barbie doll town to me--haha. But I suppose if you're going to create a German POW camp it sounds really great--like you really mean business--haha! Apparently today it's the name of a local golf course there.

Plan for today: A little bit of yardwork/bundling limbs, NTrack, Circuit workout, jog/walk

Have a good day!

I know what you mean about cravings and getting them out of your system...I'm currently like that with the only 150 cals McD's cone of soft serve vanilla ice cream!

Hope you have a wonderful day! Big Smile!


geevee on 05/13/2007:
I wonder if the camp you described is the one I saw on some TV channel. It was a fascinating tale and the result was that many Germans who had been interned there and who were interviewed for the program ended up becoming American citizens! They were totally mind-boggled that they should receive such good treatment!

Thanks for reminding me of the story.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/13/2007:

For my activity lately:

Wed: Nothing
Thur & Fri: Sawing/Bundling tree limbs 3 hrs (each day)
Sat & Sun: Nothing
Mon: Sawing/Bundling limbs 45 min; Walk 10 min

I'm up a pound on my weigh-in. And of course I'm up on my measurements. Bear with me here--I just have to remind myself how far afield I am: Since 27 February I'm up 10 pounds, and up a total of nearly 6.5 inches overall (RArm: .4 :: RLeg: 1.1 :: RCalf: .25 :: Hip: 1.25 :: Bust: .75 :: Waist: 1.4 :: Wrist: .1 :: Abd: 1.25). Unfortunately my belly precludes me from wearing all my old shorts. Aging, eating with abandon and not being very active has taken its toll.

And my body really seems to like itself at 163-4-5-6-7 . . . I learned that a long time ago. It gravitates to the 160s when I don't fight back with a vengeance. Of course with time it would like the 170s and beyond as well:-)

I'm in a sort of limbo. Again. I'll have to redouble my effort to get back in the swing once again. I'm going to fight like hell to get back. And I have to keep reminding myself that making just a little more effort WILL make a difference. And if I continue NOT making that effort, where will I be in 3 months?

I have just about killed myself working on broken limbs from a storm last week and the week before, and the wind wasn't even that bad. I think it was mostly from too much rain at one time, which overtook the new growth, weighed the limbs down and they simply broke. It involved alot of walking as well, but not purposeful except in the overall effort. Oh well, the lesson is that hard work never killed anyone--did it? I was sooo sore for a couple of days there. I still have just a bit more to do, but I think I'll be okay. I have no lingering effect soreness-wise.

Day 57 was 0 for 2 for my routine--good breakfast and walk. Day 58 was 1 for 2--breakfast only. Days 59, 60, 61, & 62 were 0 for 2 for my routine. Day 63 was 1 for 2--walk only.

Kinda old now, but still interesting--everything you may ever want to know about Cinco de Mayo: It commemorates the Mexican defeat of the French in the Battle of Puebla in Mexico in 1862. Puebla is the state in Mexico where it is most celebrated today. Essentially France was coming to get payment of debts owed by Mexico (Spain and England had settled their Mexican debt), Ignacio Zaragoza and his army defeated them after a day (or 4 hours depending on which account you believe) and the rest is history--let's eat--haha!

Apparently it isn't well-celebrated throughout Mexico. Probably the reason it is celebrated alot in Texas is that Zaragoza was born in Hidalgo, Texas. It is NOT Mexican Independence Day, which is celebrated on September 16 (1810, independence from Spain, not the US and the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence not the end).

While looking this up (as an aside) I learned that the poet responsible for the Mexican National Anthem wrote it after his fianc� locked him in a room. It took him 4 hours.

Now it seems odd that it would be so widely celebrated, especially when it is mentioned around here, no one explains what it is. Could it be because "Cinco de Mayo" just sounds good? The official name of Mexican Independence Day by contrast is "El Grito de Dolores." Which to me sounds like Grits of Dolores, which of course it's not, it means "Cry of Dolores" (village of Dolores, state of Queretero).

A little consumer info: I thought I'd try the "Pam for Grilling" and kill two birds with one stone--use it for regular cooking as well. No go! It didn't work well at all on my microwaved egg/whites as the usual "Pam" does. In fact it actually made the eggs stick! I'll probably take it back.

Plan for today: A little bit of sawing/bundling limbs, NTrack, Circuit workout, jog/walk

Have a good day!

One thing is for sure...you sure are getting PLENTY of exercise with all that work you've been doing!!! Glad to hear you are back on track! I know you can get back to your 150 you were in November! Yes, it is 'comfy' to be a little overweight...it is EASY to get used to...putting on clothes and trying not to notice the little 'roll' around the waist, etc...but I saw a video of myself recently, having put on weight since the accident and I decided to 'get with it'...I've learned, which you know this that I can be FULL AND SATISFIED each day by 'eating smart'...think I might write a book called 'EAT SMART', btw...been thinking of doing that and I love to write, too...it's just as easy to eat smart as it is to not eat smart...and it 'looks' better, hehehe! Thanks for the info you shared with us...I didn't know it, but I'd heard about Cinco De Mayo and didn't know what it meant...

Hope you have a very WONDERFUL EVENING!!!


Soon2BThin on 05/08/2007:
Hey, thanks for the info on Cinco de Mayo! We celebrate that here in Arizona too. Well, some more than others. I also find that my body likes the 160's. It seems to settle there sometimes. I, on the other hand, would really love the 140's so the fight is on! Good luck to you. Let's do this together. I had a good day yesterday, a bad day today. If I could just string a few good days together, I might get this thing going, ya think? Have a great Wednesday!

I've always assumed that we celebrate Cinco de Mayo so that restaurants cane sell more fajitas and beer - works for me!

I'm status quo on my weigh-in today. No measurements--maybe next week. I'm going to make a stab at a good exercise day today. It can only help!

Have a good day!

Hi Biscotti -

Thanks for the tip on Spurlock's other programs which I didn't know anything about. I will check it out. I still can't believe it took 3 years before I was able to access Super Size It!

Although I never would have been able to eat at McD's 3 times a day, it would have been very easy at Checkers, esp. those chemical filled shakes.

I think there really is something to developing a craving for these "bad" foods that taste so good. I remember very clearly craving a Checker's burger and fries after school, just three hours + after having the same at lunchtime. And I wondered WHY I couldn't lose weight!

Hope you had a good exercise day today! Hang in there! You CAN get back on track and stay on track and yours truly can, too! I see that you were down to 150 only a few months ago! Don't go back up to 189!!! YOU CAN DO THIS!!!

You are missed!

I totally agree with your comments today on BTC's diary about decaf. Caffeine is THE reason to drink coffee. I know I'm addicted to caffeine, and after unsuccessfully trying to rid myself of hit, embrace it totally. It's just one of those things! Without caffeine, I'd just sleep my life away. On the one weekend when I really tried, I couldn't stay away more than a half hour and would go back to sleep.

A "pick me up" is an understatement describing the effect of caffeine. I NEED it to stay conscious!

I guess I got hooked from drinking at least 4 Pepsi's a day as a child. At that time, no one talked about caffeine and I don't think it was generally known that soda contained it. Decaf sodas were not available. It's not an issue with me any more because I don't have a 'taste' for sweet drinks.

Hi There!!! I was glad to see your comment. It's so nice to see people that I remember. I'm hoping that renewed focus will get me where I want to be!

For my activity lately:
Thur: NordicTrack 13 min/1.1 mi; DogJog 5 min/Walk 20 min
Fri: Nothing
Sat: Shopping with cart 3 hrs; Mowing 2.5 hrs/Cleanup 45 min; Jog 15 min/Walk 15 min
Sun: Nothing
Mon: Jog 15 min/Walk 15 min
Tues: Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (13 min/3.1 mi)
Wed: Cut lg tree limb down to size (using hand saw) 20 min
Thur & Fri: Nothing

I'm up a half-pound for my weigh-in on Tuesday. I have been writing down my food, but have slacked off of tracking on Fitday--with disastrous (though not surprising) consequences. I know I've been eating alot--an absolutely ugly amount in fact! On the other hand I just gave myself that shot to jog that first 15 min last Saturday just to see if I could do it--it was a relative breeze and a (good) shock that finished it--haha!

Gotta climb up from this hole I've found myself in. I must be religious about getting on here, otherwise there's no hope from here on out. I do think I'll be okay if I can be even a little bit more consistent and then continue to build on things. There were a couple of days there where I wasn't really too sure, but now I feel like I'll make it!

Days 45-53 were a mixed bag for my routine--good breakfast and walk.

Day 45 was 1 for 2 for my routine. Walk only. Days 47 & 49 were 2 for 2 for my routine. The rest were 0 for 2.

Plan for today: NTrack, Airdyne, jog/walk

Have a good day!

I see I'm not the only one who's been gaining weight...time to get back on the wagon for both of us, eh?
