Hello old friend. It is nice to see you. I hope all is going well.

Congrats on meeting your goals! Keep up the good work! I admire you for your diligence and how you consistently track your food intake. By the way...you've been around since I started my Diet Diary over two years ago. Thanks for sticking around...few people have been as consistent as you have!

For my 4-day challenge (Wed-Sat), I met all my goals. Goals are as above. I'm down a pound for my Friday weigh-in. It may seem like a big nothing, because I've been on this roller coaster (mostly going up) for just about a year. It's time to get off of it.

I think I'm taking steps to get back to at least 150.5--which was my most recent low. I guess we'll see. One thing I'm trying to do is moderate my exercise--not overdoing it one way or the other with food OR exercise. My tendency is to go overboard with both. That's what got me back up 12 pounds since the beginning of 2004--it's just nuts!

Cheers to you all!

geevee on 03/04/2005:
I think my fiddling around since Sept. 2004 is very similar to your experience since the beginning of 2004. The only good part for me is that in the six months I've stalled, I'm only up 2 lbs. which I consider maintenance. It's still 2lbs. too many though. At this point, 120 sounds as far away and impossible to achieve as 155 was when I started DD's at l65. I haven't seen 125 since the beginning of January. Ahhh. we just have to keep on plodding away.


Maria7 on 03/04/2005:
You are SOOOO right! Moderation is the key! Lots of people don't think about gaining weight happening from over-exercising (creating BULK) as well as over-eating, but I, like you, have found that either one of those can make the scale number go up as well as prevent it from going down! Thanks for your comments! BTW, I see that you are also making PROGRESS! Congratulations!

I'm starting a 4-day challenge (Wed-Sat). Goals are as above.

I was so not going to jog yesterday evening. Essentially I was royally pissed about a "friend." Eventually I came around and decided I would probably feel better if I went on the jog. Missing it would have meant missing my jog for 3 days in a row. It was dark and a bit rainy, but I did okay--and a cold front came through while I was out, so I wasn't dressed too warmly for that.

I'm moving up my goal date . . . again!

Cheers to you all!

I'm up a pound and up a half-inch on measurements. I have a handle on my stuff (I think) as a result of this challenge. I'll start another challenge tomorrow.

Hi! Thanks so much for all of your kind words lately. They are very encouraging. :-) I hope that you achieve all your goals today. I've decided to write a checklist of how I want every day to look. The more I cross off every day, the better. Exercise for 60 minutes a day is a non-negotiable. I think it's also key to mental stability. Keep up the good work!


cynthia on 03/02/2005:
I so admire your attention to detail. Keep working your plan Missy ... you've proven before that it works! Cynthia

I met 1 out of 3 goals of my 4-day challenge (Fri-Mon)--missed the deficit and the water. Goals are early exercise for 45-60 min, 84 oz water, and at least a 1000 cal deficit. Seems like a useless effort, but without something to work for (especially on a weekend) I would have eaten with reckless abandon I'm sure.

I went jogging in the light rain--not all that fun, but since it was just steady and light and not too cold, I was okay.

Cheers to you all!

You have very high standards for your exercise! There is no way I could possibly ever meet them! What really interests me is the difficulty you and others have in meeting the water goal.

For me that is a given. I think I was born thirsty. I remember as a very young child, maybe 3? asking someone for water and being turned down. "You shouldn't drink so much water!"

I had a friend years ago who would tell me how difficult it was for her to drink a cup of coffee or a glass of water, yet for me I was constantly guzzling every ounce in sight.

I think there's something genetic in this.

It's incredible to me how many miles you log on the Nordic trak, and with so little water! Just thinking about it makes me terribly thirsty!

Hey tricie, thank you for mentioning that mybodycomp.com website in your diary--thank you thank you thank you!

I'm doing a 4-day Challenge (Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon). The plan is to do 45 min to 1 hour of exercise early--NordicTrack or walking; Drink 84 oz water; 1000 cal/day deficit.

My weight is the same today. As for the mybodycomp thing--it really woke me up. All my measurements (on their graph) are within a good range despite my weight except for my shoulders and abdomen--waist doesn't appear on the graph, but I'm sure it's calculated in there. The good news is that my waist:hip ratio is within the healthy range--I hadn't paid attention to that lately.

I use these things as a "go-by"--as a motivator. I know better than anyone that I'm not putting forth much effort with good food choices, and this may help me get out of the rut I'm in.

Cheers to you all!
