I'm doing a 4-Day (Fri-Mon) Challenge. Goals: 1500-1800 cal/day; 84 oz water; 700-1000 cal/day deficit. I wanted a chocolate chip cookie so badly yesterday. Of course I don't have any and wasn't going to take time to make any. Next time I go to my favorite dairy store, I'm going back to the FF milk. I've been drinking whole milk with my coffee on and off for months. If I have cereal, I prefer soy milk now, so it's not an issue with that and I don't eat all that much cold cereal anyway--at least at the moment.

Have a great weekend!

It's so easy to get hooked on whole milk. I described my first taste a month ago as "melted ice cream". It was so rich! Not that I didn't like skim. I had grown accustomed to the plain taste and was able to go right back to it, but the memory lingers.

Have you ever tried oat milk? I found some at Wild Oats. It's on the rich side tastewise but isn't that high in calories. The taste is much better than rice milk which I find too watery. Believe it or not, I've never tried soy milk but will one of these days.

I did pretty well yesterday. My little jog was with the dog in tow. I know this is the worst time of the year to "diet," but I gave away a whole pumpkin pie the other day. I sort of wished I had a small piece last evening. Now I'm glad I didn't have any. I survived:-)

Hope you all aren't struggling too badly!

geevee on 12/01/2005:
Good girl! Biscotti. You're FAR away from that dreaded 7. That's truly commendable being able to give away an entire pie!

Lots of "Nothing" above. Didn't really plan on such a great break from my usual exercise, but I'm really ready to get back into it. And I think the 170s are quite behind me. Haven't been paying alot of attention to my food since Thanksgiving. And I made some lamb shanks a couple days ago, so I have some leftover of those. I'm anxious to get back to my jogging too!

Hope you're all doing well!

Thanks for your comment. I'm getting along okay. Today is finally my first day back "on the wagon". So far, so good. But I do feel hungrier than I had a couple of weeks ago, even with the queasy stomach thing, whatever it is. Guess that's cause of all the stuffing my gut lately, getting used to it again. Way past time to cut down again. It looks like everyone here is in the same boat, nice to know we're not alone, huh? It must be the colder weather and the holidays. Knocks us right out of the game, right? We'll just keep struggling along the best we can though. Think of the alternative. Back to Lardville, hehe. And none of us wants that. Have a great rest of the week.

It pains me to put that 1-7-0 up there, but that's the way it is. I'm back on track with my exercise. Haven't been jogging since last Tues, so I may go this evening. My backache is essentially gone--thanks to the deadlifts and ab work, I think. I feel like I dodged a bullet that my back is NOT still killing me. Now onto getting that Weight to a reasonable number.

Kicking myself won't do ME any good, so I'm not going to do it. Calories could've been lower, but as I said I feel pretty good.

Sorry to see that "7". Get rid of it FAST before it becomes permanent! I know you will.

A heater at the Biltmore pool? Well, the "small" end is a 50meter Olympic sized w/6 lanes (imagined, because there is not striping). I swim in the other part which is much bigger. Like one tourist I overheard say, "It looks like a lake!" (English accent) There is no way to heat such a huge pool economically and the guests don't mind. In the winter they just want to sit around it and soak up the sun.

Back to using Fitday starting today. Sometimes I think if I stood naked in front of a mirror all day I might get through to myself--haha! Seriously, I think I'm coming back around.

Getting a bad lipid level from my doctor did wonders for me. You wouldn't believe how that changed everything, plus the blood pressure though not too high, didn't make my doctor happy. Since the numbers have been changed, 140/78 is not so great. Now they want to see 120. And since the rheumatologist didn't check the glucose, Lord only knows how high that is after all the white rice, etc.

Health is the important issue. I can "pass" for normal, neither fat nor thin which is fine with me. It's a matter of being able to say I'm at high school or college weight.

I've said many times that I'll never look thin, and that is definitely not my desire. With my body structure, I'll always have people ask me is I was a dancer!

Hi biscottibody,

Your entry reminded me of a tip I read once which suggested eating while standing naked in front of a mirror. I've never actually tried it - too worried that it might put me off food forever!
