Once again I slacked on the weight work for nearly a month. I'm a little sore today, but it's kind of a reinforcement that I need to not wait a month!

AussieGirl on 04/15/2005:
Hiyaa... thanks for the reply!

I only asked about the fat because if you aren't wanting to lose weight too rapidly between 50-75g is okay as long as you exercise.. and to have 93g occasionally won't completely undo all your hard work. To halve it might be a bit drastic all at once hahaha.. your body might start that craving thing.. so maybe just say 10g at a time until you get that metabolism going again and then increase it back up until you can be at a stable weight.

For me it is sugar that blows me up like a balloon.. so a little more fat for me is okay.. in fact if I don't have around 65g per day that is when I get hungry and that is BAAAAAD because I live about 3 mins (half a block!) away from a deli that sells jelly snakes!!!! Yum! I can resist them more if I am not hungry!!

On the non fat or diet yogurt thing.. I have looked at a lot of different brands here in Australia and the lower fat ones have almost 25% MORE sugar than the regular ones. So as long as I have one I actually like.. then a small amount of it can't be bad for me!

Keep up the good work.. you are exercising like a trouper!!! Today is my day off exercising and I can also eat what I want (within reason!)!! Yay!

Talk soon Kim xxx

Thanks for the welcome.

Can't say that movie rings a bell though!! Interesting .. in a strange way hahaha!

I love the way you put a quote in.. something different!

Can I ask you about your stats though?? when you talk about the fat.. eg 93g.. is that for the day?? or week?? or am I just stupid *smiles)

Oh and by the way.. my goal is to be able to jog on the treadmill for 10 minutes.. so you are doing brilliantly.. keep it up!

Bye for now Kim xxx

Hi biscottibody,

Thanks for your comment. I am married, actually - I got married in August but it took me a while to get used to referring to my significant other as "my husband" instead of "my boyfriend". It makes me feel so much older, somehow!

I don't think my boss is hitting on me... it is quite a likely scenario considering how chauvinistic French society is but in this case I don't think so. I honestly think it's just that he hasn't really learnt the ropes yet and doesn't know not to hound us with all sorts of trivial problems when we're trying to get work done. So hopefully that will get better in time.

I'm going to weigh in only once a month for the time being. For a couple of reasons. I'm tired of living and dying by the scale--it isn't a reflection of how I feel. I'm fortunate to be very active at the age of 46 now, and I've been thinking about how I felt physically when I started this journey.

I felt extremely sh*tty! My feet would go numb and I was probably on my way to becoming a diabetic. When I walked up the street for 5 minutes I was winded and my knees were hurting.

I have come a very long way! I need a break from hopping on the scale so often. I may end up gaining after the monthlong break, but I need the break nevertheless! (I'm still going to continue my mildly obsessive keeping track of my food and activity in my little notebook and on Fitday. Ah, obsession!)

**I have a weigh-in and a 12-min test scheduled for 5.3.05.**

Cheers to you all!

Obsessions, yes! They do keep us on track though.

I love reading your enteries. You are so inspiring. You stick to the journal. I want to be you when I grow up!!!! :~)


borntocry on 04/10/2005:
Well, I think that's a great idea. I only weigh myself about once a month, but I keep track of what I eat every day and I think that's more important than what the scale says.

One of my co-workers is trying to lose weight for her wedding this summer, and I remember one Monday she said she had spent the weekend gorging herself on chocolates and cake, but that it didn't matter because she weighed herself and hadn't gained anything since the week before. That just seemed ridiculous to me! What kind of an attitude is that?

I think your dedication to exercise is very commendable, and it has certainly been an inspiration to me. I often think of you when I go running, because like you, I want to make running a part of my life, and not just a means to lose weight. Just a year ago, I was also in terrible shape. I lived on a diet of white bread, cheese and chocolate, and I had no stamina whatsoever. Living in a European city, I had to be able to walk and climb stairs but let's put it this way, I couldn't quicken my pace to save my life. If I was fifty yards from the bus stop and saw the bus pull in, I resigned myself to missing it. So I feel like I've come a long way too, and I'm proud of that, and you should be proud of yourself too!

Thanks ever so much for your message. Muchly appreciated! I guess i thought i was the only one who messed things up, but i'm sure other people on here do go through the odd negative day. I'm glad i was honest about it..you have all made me feel a lot better mentally, i feel ready to do this again now. If i gain this week such is life! I'm sure you've all been there too so i'll get over it lol. What i was wondering, (hope you don't mind me asking), this may sound silly but..here in England they don't measure water in oz...it's all in either litres, or ml...and my Evian is measured in something called cl. How much is an oz? I ask because i want to take in the right amount of water as it seems essential to the dieting. Why is drinking water important? At the moment i'm taking in about 10 half pint glasses a day...would you say this is a fair estimation on my part or should i be aiming higher? Thanks again, (you seem to be strong all the time)...love Paula

THANKS ever so much for the water info, it's going to really help me lots. If you don't mind i would like to carry your pearl of wisdom with me on my journey "The only true crime is to give up". I LOVE that, it inspires me to keep going. You're a star you are. Love Paula x

My weight is the same. I did take time to do my measurements--nothing to write home about. I just have to pick a way of eating and be consistent. Doesn't that sound easy--haha! As it is, I'm all over the map. Portion control here and there, but no real "clean up" of my food choices. I know what to do, I must do it!
