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!

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!

The guy who invented the first wheel was an idiot. The guy who invented the other three--he was a genius.
--Sid Caesar

For my activity: Nothing

I ate a peanut roll yesterday that was absolutely useless--except for about 360 calories. Then I had a much anticipated enchilada dinner and it was awful--from a local Mexican place that's usually quite good and this was just terrible. Useless calories. I don't mind having a high-calorie day. I've learned to accept that I may eat quite alot when I'm truly anticipating certain foods. As long as I don't do it day-in/day-out like I used to, I'm okay. But when I look back at the day and totally realize that the food was just horrible, it should sink in and be a lesson. I still think I'm learning little by little, but those two things I'd like to take back.

I didn't overeat despite the number of calories. I did, however, overdo it on the sweets/sugar for the day.

Cheers to you all!

WOW the will power to not over do it! I am not at that stage yet, I just have to stay away right now. Sorry your enchilada was not as good as you had hoped that is always the worst part of when you are looking forward to something.

My Dear Biscotti,

You said a lot when you said you'd choose me to go into battle with. I say this because my son in Japan described his younger brother, the Marine, in the same terms, so I understand the import of your words and appreciate them to the fullest.

I'm not just a fighter Biscotti, I'm a bitcher and complainer, a kevetcher, if you will. "Why should this happen to me?" I don't know of anyone in the family with eye problems. Maybe it was that other diseases got to them first. Ahhhh. There is nother more precious than sight.

At this point, based on my wild imaginings with no input from a specialist who knows what the situation is, I'd be happy with just general vision, a technicolor world. I can always pay someone to read to me and find other sources to give me the info I'd like to have.

My mother was a real trouper. After her mastectomy she told me that of all the body parts, the breast was the easist to lose. She'd hate to have lost an arm or a leg!

Life is a series of adjustments, some easier than others. You have no choice but to adapt, which I will. Reluctantly! Kicking and fighting all the way!

Thanks for your supportive words!

I'm holding steady on the weigh-in today. I need to do to the house what I did to the yard yesterday (not that I have St Augustine growing in the house, but it's somewhat analogous). I suppose that if the walls were glass and everyone could see in, I'd be a little more self-conscious about its state. I still have a number of boxes to go through and there's scattered miscellaneous clutter. I'm one of those people who keeps piles of papers and I pretty much know what's where--haha--pretty much! I saw a website a few years back that called it living your life in piles. (I don't think they meant hemorrhoids!) My work is truly cut out for me--hey, that's what I need--a mulching mower for the house, hahaha!

BTW, I jogged 26 out of 31 days in March--woo-hoo!

Cheers to you all!

Hey! Congratulations on losing that pound! And thanks for your comment... yes, it did occur to me that corn-nuts might be similar to parched corn, only I seem to recall that I didn't like them much when I was in America. Parched corn seems a little crispier and kind of looks and tastes more like the unpopped corn kernels you get when you make popcorn (although not as hard). Also, it could just be that corn-nuts tend to be flavoured and don't really taste of corn any more. I'm going to see if I can find unflavoured ones the next time I'm in America (just what I need - a more easily available snack to become addicted to!).

As for boiled peanuts... what are those like? I can't decide whether they sound delicious or really gross. I can't imagine disliking peanuts in any form, though!

The kindergartners were now in the first grade. Their teacher wanted them to be more grown up since they were no longer in kindergarten. She told them to use grown up words instead of baby words. She then asked them to tell her what they did during the summer.

The first little one said he went to see his Nana. The teacher said, "No, No, you went to see your grandmother. Use the grown up word."

The next little one said she went for a trip on a choo-choo. The teacher again said, "No, No, you went on a trip on a train. That's the grown up word."

Then the teacher asked the third little one what he did during the summer. He proudly stated that he read a book. The teacher asked what book he had read.

He puffed out his chest and in a very adult way replied, "Winnie the Sh*t."
