(<1800 Cal/Day :: Ex Up To 20% Act :: 84 oz Water)
Weight: 153.5

Start: 189 (June 2001)
Low: 150.5 (Jan 2004)
Current BMI=26.3 My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8 (133)


For my activity: Hedge trimming/clean-up abt 1 hr; Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (22 min/5.1 mi)

Day 197 was good. Weight's the same, but I'm down 1 inch on my measurements. I did some yard work yesterday, which ended up as a substitute for the jog and walk--at least that's my story:-)

I noticed that my "midriff dimples" are diminishing. In fact, on my right side the dimple is practically gone! Finally some progress in this area! I even remember when I started getting these. I was about 35 and I apparently had no interest in keeping them at bay, even to the point of not noticing them for years! There's a wrinkle, but that's okay--if the little wrinkle doesn't go away--I'll have a reminder that I was able to change my ways and get rid of the rolls!

Plan for today: Airdyne, jog, walk

Have a lovely day!

Hooray on the inch lost! And what encouraging news about the 'dimples'! YAY! There is hope for us! lol

Congrats on the inch !!.. and yayaya that the dimple is leaving :).. keep at it..hugs

I usually heat the pumpkin in the microwave for 6 min. On rare occasions I'll use a little butter, but lately it's lime or salsa. Today I had some Mexican mole sauce leftover from what I used on the steak and it worked very nicely. Not only is pumpkin a lo-cal vegetable, it's one of the cheapest.

I like to do yard work because of the feeling of accomplishment it gives me. It also makes me feel as if I'm working off some calories, but it's still so muggy I can't bring myself to get out there.


golden on 09/12/2006:
WOOHOO, lost an inch, go girl!! keep up the good work you know doing yard work is just about the same as doing a workout sometimes better!

For my activity: NordicTrack Whispering--hahaha! (a.k.a. attempting to repair it properly, but not succeeding for 90 min)
Really though: NordicTrack 11 min/1.2 mi

Day 196 was good. I messed around with the NTrk until I couldn't stand it anymore and it left me no time or energy for anything else. I did find out that the parts I got were of no use. Long story. But the good news is that I found someone who has this particular part made by the original manufacturer. It's a crucial part. I feel like a bit of a dinosaur, but apparently I'm not the only NTrk kook out there:-)

Plan for today: Circuit workout, jog, walk

Have a lovely day!

Fri: Not much--a little house cleaning--didn't count it
Sat: Nothing

Day 192, 193, 194 & 195 were good. I really overate on Friday night. In addition, I've racked up two more over-2000 cal days, so I only have two left for the month. It's no coincidence that drinking hardly any water contributes to high-cal days for me.

Funny how you can do a variety of exercises for weeks and weeks and then go and clean your car and you use muscles you didn't know you owned:-) As for my sluggish ways the last 3 days--my body needs a break every now and then. It's just how it goes--back in the swing today!

Plan for today: Circuit workout, jog, walk

Have a lovely day!

smiley2 on 09/11/2006:
Im too short to wash our car lol, so we usually take it to the carwash LOL. Its good that you arent freaking out about your slip ups, but rather seeing it as part of the whole weight loss process. What is an Airdyne?


borntocry on 09/11/2006:
Hi biscotti,

Thanks so much for your comment. I think I know what you mean about feeling intimidated by your success. I spent a while dwelling on my low weight of 109 and how I have to get back to that at all costs. But now I'm not stressing so much about it, and things are going better.

Thanks also for your tip on the McDougall program. I will look into that. In general IBD patients are advised to keep away from fibre, but no-one is really sure what the best course of action is, and a high-fibre vegetarian diet does seem right up my alley!

I have also noticed that drinking lots of water (well, five glasses is "lots" to me) tends to keep my calories down. Yet despite being fully aware of this I still seem to find it so hard to do. I guess subconsciously I would still rather fill myself up on food rather than water, despite my best intentions.

And I wish I could find a way to target the muscles I use to carry groceries, because I could use a little improvement in that department!


geevee on 09/11/2006:
You're getting there! I'm impressed.


WorkingIt on 09/11/2006:

For my activity:
Airdyne 40 min/9.6 mi; DogJog 5 min/Walk 10 min

Day 190 was good. Weight's the same today. Measurements are up overall including my bust, which I should just stop measuring or just stop counting in the overall because it's up, it's down, it's all around and it NEVER has any correlation with any of the other measurements. Oh my disembodied bust--hahaha! Down slightly are my leg and abdomen.

I'm getting my NTrk parts soon, so I can stop torturing myself on the Airdyne, which is getting old. I really have to force myself to stay on it in 10 min spurts. But it's good for me! I was beginning to think I was going to have to ask this guy down the street if I could nab some parts off of the NTrk in his garage.

Plan for today: Circuit workout, jog, walk

Have a lovely day!

Give me a dozen such heartbreaks, if that would help me lose a couple of pounds. --Sidonie Gabrielle Colette

For my activity: Airdyne 14 min/3.1 mi; Jog 21 min/Walk 55 min

Day 186 was good. My calories were a bit high, but that just happens from time to time--I've just gotta eat! The numbers look like I really overate, but I didn't. I did get into a pkg of RF Triscuits that I thought were out of date, but other than that I did well.

Happy New Month--haha! August was really wearing on me--we finally got a little rain, and the triple digit temps are over I hope. Good luck to you all doing the BTC challenge!

***Update***

Goal: End the month with no more than 5 days of over 2000 calories and NO days of over 3000 calories.

I just did a little tracking of something that I usually don't care to report. It's eating above 2000 calories, not to mention it's hindering my progress:-) So I looked back in Fitday and here's the damage, which led to my goal for this month. I know it seems obsessive to some, but it really speaks to me at this point. And I want to make more of an effort and get this done!

Going from the last 30 days back to mid-Feb:

2000 cal days
13
15
14 (incl 1-3K day)
21 (incl 1-3K day)
15 (incl 3-3K days)
14 (incl 1-3K day)
10 (incl 2-3K days)

Plan for today: Circuit workout, jog, walk

Have a lovely day!

You are so close to your previous low. That's awesome, and a new low weight must be in sight.

Thanks for your comments to me yesterday. It truly helps to have the support and encouragement. Thanks!

Have a great weekend. Enjoy the lower temps outside.

thanks for your research into Sugar in the Raw! I don't think it tastes as good as regular white sugar, lol. I'll use it until it's gone though.

Good job on your exercise! I've always been impressed with your numbers.

Biscotti,you have no idea about how difficult it is/has been to get a roofer. Wilma came at the end of Oct.In Nov. and Dec. EVERY reputable roofing compnay was incomunicado. The recorded message was that the company was not taking any new customers and to call after the first of the year. That was the message from EVERY COMPANY.

Somhow I felt extremely fortunate that when this company decided to put me on their waiting list, I was THRILLED! No other company would even talk to me. Now at the tail end and so close to having a new roof I feel like a beggar who is going to pay thousands of dollars just for normal protection of my property..
