Days 216, 217 & 218 were okay. I'm up a half-inch on my measurements overall and down a pound on my weigh-in.

For the month of September I did 8 Circuit Workouts, but only 6 days of jogging (and not all that much walking) and I threw in a couple other workouts on the Airdyne alone. And no NTrk--it's still broken and I'm ordering the (correct, I hope) parts today--I can't stand not having it to use! All in all not a good month for working out. In fact one of the suckiest in a long time. Also the month was a wash for weight loss--no change!

I've done some soul-searching along with the final count of over 2000-calorie days this month--13--ridiculous! I intend to make the most of October, and I intend to be relentless. I looked at my weight graph and over the last year I'm down 15 pounds--not up and down, simply down--woo-hoo! (At least that's how the graph reads!)

I'm ready to live in a different body and for a very long time. Getting old and fat can just go to hell for all I care. I HAVE to get old, but I don't have to be a flabby-assed mess in the process!

Here's a paraphrase of something Rader used to "say," Next month will be here no matter what. How do I want to wake up on that day--November 1st?

I like how you evaluated your last month.. and how you want to get things in order !!.. good plan!!..

I had to laugh at your exercise for Sunday! That's my kinda workout! heh

How do you keep everything so organized? Do you do it entirely online and then review it monthly or do you track it on paper as well?? Just curious!

And YAY for no up and down's on the weight graph this year! That's gotta feel great!!

Day 215 was good. Missed the jog and walk.

I won't ever tell anyone that it's a crime to be hungry. I was hungry so many times yesterday. And the solution was to eat--haha! I made pretty good choices. Although I didn't plan to get hungry so much, it made me think that this is just a little taste of how it's going to be. I had to think of GeeVee of course (Hi GV!). I'm in desperate need of a trip to the grocery store and a run for milk. I've been drinking whole milk (coffee only) for about the last week, because I have to go to another town for my "good" milk.

I was going through a box of old sh*t, and (among other interesting detritus of my life) I came across my really old collection of magazines. I have the very first issue of People with Mia Farrow on the cover, from 1974. I thumbed through it and there was an article about a couple of women getting their jaws wired shut in order to shed the pounds. The headline was "Fatties Get a Different Kind of Lockjaw." It's interesting that a truly major surgery like gastric bypass has replaced this relatively benign, inexpensive (by comparison) and reversible procedure. Hmmmm . . . food for thought:-)

That sounds weird. What people go through just to be thin. Personally I think people just need to lose weight the old fashion way and when they get to a stable weight, except themselves for who they are!


cuba_bound on 09/30/2006:
That's completely crazy. To get your jaw locked to avoid eating, although sometimes it seems like a good idea :P

I am soo excited for cuba. its sucks that you can't go to cuba if you are an american citizen, guess I won't be seeing any out there then :(


hollybelle on 09/30/2006:
Hi Biscottibody - I like your nickname. I loved what you said about being hungry NOT being a crime. One of the things I am definitely finding helpful in aiding me NOT to obsess about food is simply paying attention to my hunger. And when I truly am hungry - a little bit or a lot - I eat. I eat a little when I am a little hungry and a lot when I'm a lot hungry, making good food choices most of the time. Sounds simple doesn't it? Of course I'm very lucky because having obsessed about food most of my life after age 14, I know the calorie, fat, nutritional content of most foods. Yikes. Using that knowledge in a positive way is new, though. Keep us posted on your successes. A few years ago I would have thought the idea of jaws wired shut "interesting". Now it is just plain scary! Have a Blessed Day! Your Diary Buddy - Holly


monet0239 on 09/30/2006:

WorkingIt on 09/30/2006:
OMG I forgot about the jaw wiring! There was a lady in our neighborhood that had it done and she lost a bunch of weight, gained it back once she could eat solid food again. :(


Moody on 10/01/2006:
There was only one person I've known to have her jaw wired and she was freaking skinny to begin with!! Crazy!!

Looks like you are doing great! Keep it up!!!!!


smiley2 on 10/01/2006:
I believe the whole diet industry is one big money making business. Yes some products does have some effects, but at the end of the day healthy eating and regular exercise are the key ingredients to keep the weight off. Its amazing how much people will spend to get information they already know...how ironic lol

Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. --Harriet Beecher Stowe

For my activity: Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (17 min/3.9 mi)

Day 211 was good. My weight's up today *sigh*--but I'm down 1/8th inch overall on my measurements. That goofy bust measurement is up a half-inch, but my abdomen is down 5/8ths inch. I was thinking my pants were just a little bit looser lately!

I just looked back and I'm down 3 inches in my abdomen over the last year--that feels really good. Pounds lost are good, but 3 inches of flab gone just feels great!

I'm not really surprised by the weight gain/fluctuation, whichever it is. I will be baking more in the coming days, weeks and months and I just have to learn some control this time. It's that or deprive others of my goodies:-) I admit that four scones the other day was a bit much, but one time I made them I literally ate them all and then didn't eat anything else all day--I paced myself:-) That was a few years ago, and I'm still enthralled with them--haha!

I started my circuit workout yesterday and immediately wanted to give up, but I persevered. I was glad to get it done. I always feel that way, but I always have varying levels of motivation. It was particularly bad yesterday. I didn't get in either the jog or the walk.

On the exrx.net site was a "sit up" test--the kind where you either have someone hold your feet or put your feet under something to immobilize them and your knees are bent. I was able to do 22, rated good for my age group. They're really hard on the lower back--probably why I haven't been doing them--I was thinking maybe I could do 100 before I started. I do bicycle crunches and leg lifts wherein my lower back is flat on the floor.

Have a lovely day!

I go on measurements only, if i weigh myself each day i will become a chronically depressed person. Congrats on losing the measurements and way to go on the bust meaurement, wish i was you hehehe!

And thanks for sharing the quote, im gonna follow that outcry ;)

Have a great day!

PS The baking devil has started to tempt me as well...i have seen this flourless whiskey chocolate cake that i want to bake for my B-day next week, but dont know if i will actually go through with it hehehe!


maria777 on 09/26/2006:
I really think that the tape measure is what we should ALL go by, NOT the scale!!! Being heavier but smaller with the tape measure usually means added muscle which is fantastic! I'm so happy for you!

As for me, I'm up 1 and 3/4 inches in waist and up in other areas as well...so my increased weight is FAT weight.

You're doing so well...keep up the good work!

PS...you're not the only one that's been craving to do some baking...I even invited a couple over for supper one day this week and plan to bake homemade biscuits!


borntocry on 09/27/2006:
This is too funny - I've been wanting to start baking again too. Must be the onset of cooler weather... if that's even the case where you are, hehe.

Change before you have to. --Jack Welch

For my activity: Airdyne 14 min/3.0 mi; Jog 12 min/Walk 25 min

Day 210 was good. For my 12-min test, I was able to jog the entire way, but I didn't push myself AT ALL--pretty rusty after not doing ANY jogging in 20 days! Ended up at 1 mi, which is rated "POOR" for my age group. (1.1=Average, 1.3=Good, 1.4=Excellent and 1.6=score of 100 from exrx.net)

At least I haven't lost much fitness since the last test. I'm not going to be doing any racing any time soon if ever, so I'll once again work on increasing my time. I was regularly jogging 30 min 5-6 days/week, which would be great to get back to.

I broke down and made some oatmeal date scones--butter included--ate four of them. Didn't matter, because that's all I ate 'til supper. An all-scone diet wouldn't be so bad, I can only eat so many of them. I won't want them again for awhile I'm sure:-)

Days 208 & 209 were good. I'm back down that same 1 pound as of yesterday, which is kinda funny considering how much I've eaten this week, but what Becca27 said in her comment a couple days ago was true for me. I'm doing much better foodwise, despite having the 9th over-2000 calorie day this month.

I'm going to try to do a 12-min test today--it's been awhile, and it's been awhile since I've jogged anyway, so it'll probably be a pretty crummy result.

Thur: Nothing

Days 204, 205, 206 & 207 were ho-hum. I was up a pound on my weigh-in Tuesday and I didn't do my measurements.

I've been continuing to nurse my low back spasms, etc. It spasms, it's tight. I could probably walk. I've felt like I should lay low more than I usually do when I get these back problems. So I have--been laying low! And eating! The back's a little better today, but not great.

I forced myself to do my circuit workout the other day, so my lack of activity has to do more with laziness and "don't want to" than anything--it's painful, but not to the point of immobilizing me. In fact I did 41 sissy pushups. I usually do the military ones first, but this time I wanted to see how many I could do without stopping. Up to now I was only up to 30 of each. Who knew--Woo-hoo!

I have no idea what brought on the back spasms this time. I had it before I did the yard work, but all that probably didn't help. I had that spate of long walks for awhile there and abruptly quit when we had a little cool weather--it's supposed to be in the upper 90s (F) today. Maybe slacking off there aggravated it. At any rate, I'm kinda going to have to dig myself out again. It's impossible to stay on an even keel with everything unless you're a robot. Last time I checked there weren't any here on DDs!

I sent back the useless parts for my NTrk--don't know if they're going to give me full credit--pesky restocking fee--they were horribly overpriced compared to the place I'm planning to use once I get some credit back.

I had a 3200 cal day on Wednesday, but to be fair I could have put some of that on the next day because I was eating up until 4 a.m. Thursday:-) It was all bad--hahaha! And it continued--the last 3 days were over 2000 calories.

I'm not thinking any farther than today.

Plan for today: Circuit workout, jog, walk

OMG, you're making me nervous now! Don't go and ruin the great progress you've achieved lately! You're at the weight I can hardly wait to get to. That's when I really start to feel the difference. Catch it in the early stages and get back to what you were doing. I know because of your back that you can't do everything you were and you certainly don't want to aggravate that, but you have to stop that eating NOW, lol! I don't want to see that number start going back up again. And you know it's all about me, lmao! Seriously, I feel like I've known you the longest on here and we've kinda struggled over the years together but YOU'RE DOING IT!! Just don't let that dern food take control, okay? Have a nice weekend!


geevee on 09/22/2006:
I had three 2000+ days in a row last week myself. It sure is hard breaking that habit!At least I took advantage of the spree and ate the foods I normally resist.

I had described a fluttering in the chest to a doctor I used to go to so he had me wear a monitor too. The darned thing kept me up all night and of course there were no flutters whatsoever. Isn't that always the way?

I just knew that what I wrote about that Spanish bastard doctor would touch a nerve with you and that we would be in synch on this subject.I find it amazing how well we all get to know each other on DD's.

There are a lot of cultural differences to consider when we choose a doctor, but to have some of them expressed the way they were with that Spanish doctor made an indelible impression. With the high percentage of Latins in Miami,I think it must be somewhere around 65-70%. As a "basic" American, I am in the growing minority. Whites or "others" as I call myself are only 19% of the population, so it's only natural to find an ever increasing number of non-American doctors.

As for your back problem, have you tried heat packs on it"? A friend of mind swore by its effectiveness. Mine, too, acts up periodically but doesn't incapacitate me like my knee does. I have to be very careful to sit erect at all times and never slump. The annoyances of life, right? Hang in there. You're almost in the 140's.


WorkingIt on 09/22/2006:
I read something that said exercise is the best thing for a bad back so that is great that you are continuing to exercise! I love the heating pad on my back, set on low while a spend half an hour reading my book. Very relaxing!


smiley2 on 09/23/2006:
Sorry to hear about the slump you are going through. The most important thing is awareness and readjustment and you are already working on that! I also get spasms in my lower back sometimes, its extremely painful. What helps for me is a warm bath, warm pad or some muscle relaxation pills. So you can do military push ups? WOW i have tried it several times but failed miserably! Youre the bomb!
