hey! your calories are still very good...and great on the fat, fiber, and water. I guess when you eat within a moderate calorie range, the fat, fiber, and water usually are pretty good! haha. usually, not always. i have yet to start jogging...i'm still building up muscles walking!

greengirl on 09/14/2007:
I really must try and do a little jogging on the treadmill. I used to do a few minutes every quarter of an hour but somewhere along the line I stopped doing it. You have spurred me on to do some, Biscotti. Take care of your back tho !!! Have a good weekend :)

legcramps on 09/14/2007:
I find the first 5 minutes of a jog to be the absolute worst. After that, it's gravy. But don't eat that gravy, just let it roll on by...

It is a common delusion that you can make things better by talking about them. --Dame Rose Macauley

For my activity: Nothing

Day 7: Calorie goal yes--water goal no! Actually on my measurements I was DOWN 1/8th inch--big woop--but it's DOWN instead of UP!

I needed to do no activity yesterday. My back is surprisingly not an issue--there's a bit of deep soreness when I do a certain stretch--but I couldn't do that stretch even a week ago. I'm surprised at how quickly I was able to get better!

I'm dusting off an old running schedule--don't know how it will go. All I know is I'll just take it one step at a time, no rushing for me.

Plan for today: NTrack; Jog/Walk

Hope you get some good exercise today!

sometimes taking a few days off from exercise is what our bodies need. I almost always HATE to take days off because I regret doing so....but it's so true, whenever I come back to exercise after a short break, I feel recharged and ready to go!

hollybelle on 09/13/2007:
You are always so consistent. Glad your back is OK.

maria777 on 09/13/2007:
Hey there! Looks like you're doing better and better! Especially with your 1648 cals! Good work!

I'm glad to hear your back in improving and feeling much better.

Hope you have a fantastic evening!

For my activity: Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (25 min/5.5 mi); Walk 10 min

Day 6: I made the calorie goal--not the water goal. I'm up two pounds on my weigh-in. I'm up overall from my last measurements, by 1/8th inch. However, I'm down or unchanged on all measurements except two--bust & abdomen, so once again it's a mixed bag.

I don't mind taking back the two pounds this week because I've had a pretty good week (one day left) regarding food. And an excellent week re: exercise. I've done all I expected to and, since I was still recovering from the back trouble, I'd call it a rousingly successful exercise week:-)

I just need to get on the stick for more than a day or a week, possibly tie a couple of weeks together and then see where I am.

Plan for today: Walk

Thank you again for your uplifting encouragement to my entry yesterday and day before. It has REALLY helped me feel MUCH BETTER.

You are a very sweet person!

I am so happy for you getting in your exercise and doing so well. And look at your calories...1408...FANTASTIC!!! Big Smile to you!

Donkey on 09/10/2007:
I do apologize if I disagree with your assessment of ad-vitam's diet. Perhaps I have missed something, because nowhere did I see that it was super low in calories.

I think if someone is indulging in bad habits and then quickly jumps into a healthy lifestyle that they will lose a lot of weight quickly. Don't you think so? Or, is this not applicable to that situation? This is why I think I must have missed something there.

Please do not refrain from commenting on my diary at least. I do value your frank opinions and encouragement.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/10/2007:
thanks for the bday wishes!!! life is busy right now...so i wasn't able to comment back sooner! :)

Day 3: I didn't make the calorie goal, but I did make the water goal. My circuit workout was abbreviated since it's been nearly a month since I did any weight training. I left off the leg work except for the calf raises and deadlifts, the latter of which is good for my lower back. Speaking of, it's still doing okay--holding it's own haha! It's not limiting me for the most part, so it's all good! I was able to do a few pushups, and all the other upper body ex with the 13# dumbbells. I'll probably be able to do the whole deal next scheduled workout.

Hi Biscottibody, I didnt think you were having a dig at the UK or anything. Unfortunately there is a massive drugs problem here in the UK too. Its rife amongst young people, sometimes it feels so common its almost as if its not illegal!!! There was no need for you to apologise, I certainly wasnt offended in any way :o)

Donkey on 09/08/2007:
Now see, I speak what I think about GG's diet and I hurt her feelings. I don't need that kind of guilt weighing heavily upon my heart. I'm not going to say anything to anyone about their diets any more.

Day 1: I made the calorie and water goals. I'll find some way to report the other weekly goals as I go along.

I'll come back after midnight to reveal the diary. I don't think anyone who's posting here regularly at the moment left any comments for her including me, though I did leave one when I glanced through the diary yesterday. It's a stinky diary for the most part until she "gets it," and apparently realizes that she will self-destruct if she stays on the path she's on.

Most of us do that. We have some sort of wake-up call that first makes us realize we MUST CHANGE, then we try to change and I guess we succeed or fail to some degree.

I agree...the wake up call...and then we do fail a little as well as succeed...I think the trick is, not to get caught up in the failures and revel in the success!

WorkingIt2 on 09/07/2007:
WOW, Biscotti! I just read her diary...and I am just struck silent! Holy smokes!

greengirl on 09/07/2007:
hey biscotti, I checked out the diary too. She stopped posting a few months before I joined. Its definately an eye opener but behaviour like hers is far more common than you would expect, especially in inner ciry areas of the uk. I hope she found help somewhere along the way. I was far more uncomfortable with the proana stuff than the drugs. Thats something I havent come across much. You were right about the comments tho. Some of them were brutally honest!!!

Don't be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones tend to take care of themselves. --Dale Carnegie

My back is still a pest. Seems to be getting better; at least it's not getting worse:-) Met my activity goals for yesterday, and today is Day 1 of an 84-day countdown. A "for certain" goal is 1700 cals/day--not all that much to ask. Possibly jog 3 days/week; Circuit workout 2-3 days/week. Drink 80-100 oz water/day. That's it unless I come up with something else. I'd like to drop at least 10 pounds.

I used to be a big coffee drinker--many cups--up to 2-3 pots at least. I now manage on 2 cups, sometimes 3, but never more than that--been this way for several years now. It's automatic. It's a feather in my cap--not drinking a gob of coffee every day. In a similar way I would see getting to 150 consistently the same way. Let's see if I can manage it:-)

And now for a little game: Name That Diary!
Okay. She's 23 now. Her diary is very special, at least I think it is. But what do I know? It has sex, drugs (OTC diet pills I think & pot), cutting, bingeing, purging and also restricting calories to 500/day. Very special because she actually reports that she eventually sees a psychologist and apparently it helps. Alot! The comments are almost more interesting to read than the diary itself. I thought about this diary after my entry yesterday and took time to find it again--the commenters really didn't hold back. Can you Name That Diary?

greengirl on 09/06/2007:
Was this person an actress or artist or something??? It rings a bell and I have been through my diary as I'm certain I entered into some tete a tete with someone about some 'research' they were touting. Unfortunately I couldnt find it on my diary so it must have been on hers. If its who I thought it was were there some strange pictures on her diary?? Just cant remember the name!!!

Never miss a chance to keep your mouth shut. --Robert Newton Peck

For my activity:
Sun: Walk 45 min; back ex
Mon: Nothing really except for a few back exercises

I'm down 2 pounds on my weigh-in. No measurements this week.

Back is doing well--still keeping my fingers crossed:-) Time to get back to it, huh! The only thing I can say is that I didn't have a completely non-active week like I could have by babying my back. So that's something to be proud of in my book;-) So! Today's the day and one day at a time and trying for consistency (as our old friend PastaGal intoned at the end of all here entries here). So DDs isn't quite what it was when I started, but neither am I. Everything must evolve--right!?!

There are some good inspirations in the old diaries from "way back when" whether each diarist kept off all their weight or not. It's about the journey for me personally. If someone wants to do something drastic, like lose a pound a day and think it's okay and even that it's sustainable or healthy, someone needs to point out that it's not. That's how DDs has changed for the worse. There used to be MANY voices of sensibility. Not so much any more. Come back sensible people, we need you!

Well, you know, I did speak out to some people on DD (Amanda8919, JShawstad) and I got blasted for it. I was told that I was mean, that I was unsupportive. That I was wrong. So I don't really say much to people any more about how they plan to lose weight.

I'm pretty happy with my journey. I can eat a variety of foods (ice cream, beer, chocolate, pizza), I don't rely on diet pills, I'm truthful to myself and log down EVERYTHING that I eat. And I've managed to keep all but 5lb of what I've lost in my journey. I started at 180 and I'm at 135-136 right now.

So I think I *do* know what I'm talking about, contrary to SOME people's opinion. But I'll be damned if I'm going to go around like some kind of Diet Police, correcting people's ways of dieting only to get insults hurled at me and my feelings hurt.

greengirl on 09/04/2007:
I know what you both mean, but I've always been someone who avoids confrontation so when I see something I think is daft I tend to just avoid commenting at all. Sort of , if I cant say something nice I dont say anything at all. I know I am a bit cowardly !!

WorkingIt2 on 09/04/2007:
Congratulations on the weight loss!! YAY! And on staying active with the hurt back! I am going slow and easy right now, if I push myself I can feel the tingling twinges and it is so frustrating!

Sometimes I wonder if the diaries posted about losing excessive weight and what-not, aren't just bad jokes played by people who think it is fun to mess with the heads of sensible dieters? I think I'll start a thread in the forums section about how folks are losing weight, how they keep it off, etc. I'd love to read some more diet specifics and maybe it will help those who think it is ok to destroy the insides with extreme dieting and pills, in order to get the 'look' on the outside. Maybe some topics about excessive exercise and dieting would help, just general conversation type stuff. Well, maybe the day after tomorrow I'll post them..kind of tired tonight lol. Take care! And again, CONGRATULATIONS!
