Weight: 167.5

Start: 189 (June 2001)
Low: 150.5 (Jan 2004)
Current BMI=28.7; My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8


For my activity: NordicTrack 41 min/4.3 mi;
Jog 20 min (6-4-4-6); Walk 20 min

For Tues-Thurs challenge I met all goals--cal, water, and deficit. I feel good so far. I am still a little sore from the weight work on Sunday. And I tried jogging and other than my calves cramping a bit, I did fine. It had been 2 weeks since my self-imposed jogging break. I think I'll restrict myself to skipping 2 days between jogging. It's too easy to succumb to the pitfall of, "I did thus and such much exercise and so I can eat tons of food." I don't really do that with anything but jogging.

Have a good food day!

Hi biscottibody,

Thanks for your comment. Looks like you're doing pretty well with your goals. Keep it up!

I also have a problem keeping my calories down on the days I go running/jogging. However in my case the problem isn't that I feel justified in eating more afterwards, but that I feel like I have to eat more beforehand. It's like I'm scared I'll run out of energy (no pun intended!) halfway through and collapse or something. Of course that's never actually happened to me or anyone I know, but I still feel like I have to be well-fortified with snacks before I go running.

Still, I think it's worth it to keep my fitness level up!


geevee on 10/19/2005:
Good going on the fiber and water. I've found that having a lot of fiber really helps in holding my huge appetite at bay.

It's reassuring to know that I'm not alone in making a VERY short stop at goal weight and then promptly going up, only to continue fighting to get back! I've been in this battle for months now as you well know. The positive is that I've contained the problem to just a few pounds so that I'm able to say that I'm in the small minority of those dieters who can stay within five pounds of their goal weight after a year. I'm now starting my second year. Crucial time!


mummypod on 10/20/2005:
Hiyaaaa!

I guess it did sound a bit confusing *s*.

I originally counted calories when I started this journey 18 months ago... the usual fat and carb counting too, but now I generally eat pretty much the same amounts per day from week to week and the only changes are ones outside my home and that is when I try and 'treat' myself. Then it's back to the usual routine the next day.

I am trying to not have to worry about calories depending on the exercise I do, I am like others and find exercise and my classes so enjoyable I just do them and keep the calories approximately the same, that way I know I won't be too far out of control lol

Plus I really haven't got the patience to look through and write them all down, so that is why I pretty much eat the same things all the time. If I didn't lose weight on a regular basis then I would definitely go back to calorie counting and work out my exercise expenditure too.

I hope that explains it a bit more lol

Take care Kim xxx

Current BMI=28.7; My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8


For my activity: Circ Aer Wkt using NordicTrack 33 min/3.4 mi

4-Day Challenge (Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon) with the above goals (calories and water). Results for Day 4: met goal for water but not the calories.

Will continue with the goals, but the the one thing I'm adding is a 700 cal deficit for Tues-Thurs. I'm going to try to stay vigilant with the food--writing it in my little notebook, etc.

This thing below is a snapshot of my weight graph from Fitday, which I thought kinda looked like a rough sketch of a skyline instead of a graph. On another note I took my measurements, which I hadn't done for quite a while. I'm up (overall) a little over 8 inches from about a year ago. Yikes!

Gotta go and try on those shorts--they're 10s--I'd love to be a "solid" 10 by the new year--meaning no 12s or above.

Have a good exercise day!

geevee on 10/18/2005:
You're down a pound! That's good.

Looking at your graph, it seems that when you reached your goal you didn't stay at it very long. Is that right, or is it that it's coincidental that you started going up after you had been there for awhile?

When I reached my goal I stayed there for about half the time during a two month period. I never was at my goal EVERY single day, and after a couple of months skirting on and off it, it disappeared.

please view my hadenough!!! I feel so much like you. Let's support each other please............. I was 150 and now 184. and yes, it's doable and Again is right......

Hi biscottibody,

Good job meeting your calorie and water goals. It looks like it's working, too!

Thanks so much for the kind and understanding comment you left me in my last entry. It really meant a lot to me.


geevee on 10/17/2005:
I'm glad to hear that you're back on track. It's SO easy to get off yet SO difficult to get back on. It's just like my yoga lapse. You were so astute to notice how remiss Ive been since May! The same with the gym equipment. I walk through the area everyday on my way to the locker room yet haven't done anything! The funny thing is that when I use the machines, I enjoy it! I love the elliptical except for the boredom factor. Maybe if I find a good recorded book that will give me the incentive to use it again.

That's great that you are making your goals, but why not exercise???


StringBean on 10/16/2005:
I have a question about your deficit. (I wrote an entry with the same question today.) To get the deficit, do you just subtract your calories (and exercise calories burned) from the number of calories you'd need to take in to maintain? I hope this makes sense... I'm confusing myself here! If you can help explain, I'd really appreciate it!

There's no point in putting my numbers down at the bottom. It's just time to get back to the task at hand. I was looking back in my diary and in Feb 2003 I was at 169# and by the end of that year I was down to the above low, 150.5#, so despite my current attitude I know it is doable. I'm very much starting over again--AGAIN! That's how this is. I don't want to find myself at 189 again!

I'm going to do a 4-Day Challenge (Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon) with the above goals (calories and water). I've been taking a break from jogging for the last couple of weeks. Had a problem with my leg and just thought I'd force myself to take a break. It seems to have cleared up after just a day, but I always welcome a break because I get so compulsive about my measly little 20 or so minutes.

I was unable to access the public diaries for a few days--turned out to be a problem with this accelerator thingy on my isp. I turned it off and Voila! In the meantime the webmaster gave me some things to try by email--unlike when our beloved DDs was owned by Adam/Jay Jennings. Kudos to our webmaster!

Hope you're all doing well these days!

I'm such a backslider. The signs are all there besides just the scale number. I'm starting to feel like I did when I started this journey--like sh*t. To elaborate: my arms are getting chubbly-wubbly as is the rest of me.

The one big GOOD thing is that I've maintained my aerobic fitness (fragile as it may be at this point). I was horribly unfit when I started. I know there's always room for improvement in this area for me. My minimum jogging outing for this week is up to 21 min for the first time in awhile. Other than that it's been business as usual. A drastic change::result is in order!

Cheers to you all!

Hi biscottibody,

What can I say except "same here". I have really let things slide lately. And just like you I feel terrible and completely out of control, like all I can do is just stand by and watch as the situation deteriorates yet further. But I also have that one major consolation which is that I have kept up my running (okay, "jogging"!). It is really quite impressive because back in the day I found it so much easier to diet than to exercise. I couldn't understand how some people could say the reverse.

Let's make a pact with each other not to let this slide. As long as we keep it up we will always know that at least we're fit and healthy, even if we get a little chubby-wubby!


geevee on 09/21/2005:
Hi Biscotti,

I read an article in the NYTimes this week about the discrimination against overweight trainers and how difficult it can be to get a job for them. One in particular struck me. At 5'2", my height, but 200 BIG pounds, this gal was really fit. It was an interesting article.

I know how you feel about the "chubs". Don't we all? What a battle we're in, and I KNOW it's for life! There is no easy way, that's for sure. Hang in there and keep trying. It'll pay off in time.

I may not always comment but I always read Thanks for always inspiring me! you are important and special!
