Hi,

I agree with you on the scale bit. When I weigh myself every day it becomes obsessive. It's crazy. I've kind of worked hard to get over that. Once a week when you're trying to lose weight is really good.

Keep up the great work.


legcramps on 02/03/2005:

You really made my day with your comments and encouraged me to try my best.

Getting on the scale weekly only as opposed to daily has been a freeing experience. I am not as obsessed with the number, although I know I'm still in the unhealthy realm of BMI. It works for me at this point. Maybe I'll feel differently when I get into the low 150s.

Just checking in - you're doing a great job! Keep it up and you'll be in the low 150s before you know it. I know what you mean about weighing everyday. I've had to stop myself from weighing before, and i'll most likely have to do it again in the future! Well, good luck today...


NewHope05 on 02/03/2005:
I admire you so! My worst habit is weighing myself everyday! even after I workout, then later after I take a shower, I really need to just hide the scales until every sunday! lol Keep up the great work and the weight has no where go but down! thanks for your sweet comments!! much love!

Down 1.5 pounds--I feel good today with my progress. I'm getting there slowly but surely. All measurements are down or unchanged for a total of a little over a half-inch of progress!

I did meet all the challenge goals. Goals are 84 oz water, less than 2000 cal eaten and at least a 1000 cal deficit. That was a Fri-Mon challenge--I'm happy with the overall results.

Oh, the size 10 shorts are much less snug--I could be comfortable in them--except we're supposed to get snow overnight, so it's a little chilly out today!

Cheers to you all!

Great job and you are doing great with your progress! I would love to be in a size 10 pants.

Hi B.B.,

I had the same nerve pain in my leg when I was pregnant with my first child, and it would happen when the baby pressed on the nerve, wow, I still remember it and that was almost 22 years ago. I'm just like you because I don't jump into surgery lightly either. I always say that a surgeon is going to recommend surgery when needed because that is how he makes his money.

I blew all the challenge goals, but I had a good lunch out and it included a rare large beer for me. Goals are 84 oz water, less than 2000 cal eaten and at least a 1000 cal deficit.

I did get my exercise in--by the skin of my teeth--I did the circuit just before going out for lunch--kind of pressed for time--but that's the way it is. I am so committed to my weight work now. I hate doing abs--who likes 'em! But I do 2 sets spread apart over the time of the routine, and the second one is starting to get much easier to get into.

Geevee brought up an interesting question about my fat intake yesterday. I guess if I'm really honest--it's generally what messes me up--my answer to her was that I look forward to concentrating on it. Also in the last week or so, my intake has generally been below 100. It's usually much over that and goes hand in hand with higher calories of course.

Cheers to you all!

another great quote -- too often we look at the wrapping and miss the quality of what's inside.

I hate doing abs, too, but I do like to work them using those big balls. I've asked for one for my birthday. I think we all have our "thing" that messes us up, ya know?


cowboy on 01/31/2005:
I always look forward to your quotes! I usually do abs every workout and I'm missing my weight training, but it doesn't take long to get it all back. Keep up the good work!

I met all of my 4-day challenge (Fri-Mon) goals except the deficit--818. Goals are 84 oz water, less than 2000 cal eaten and at least a 1000 cal deficit.

What I realized yesterday: I'm ready to be finished with this--once and for all--I'm going to do my damndest in the next several weeks to get to my healthy BMI and go from there. I'm tired of fu*king up over and over and over again.

I'm putting myself on notice as of yesterday. My long-term plan is to stay healthy while getting as fit as possible. For me that means not overdoing it in the short-term. I'm ready, I can do this, I will do this!

Cheers to you all!

geevee on 01/30/2005:
Just curious, Biscotti. What is your downfall on the fat intake front? You're really good on high fiber and water as I am. I don't have any idea of what my fat intake is. It takes too much time to do all of that computing on Fitday and with my recent lipid levels and knowing what I eat, I know mine are next to nil, so to speak.

A bit about fiber from a previous entry: I don't eat an awful lot of pasta, but there are some good-tasting (in my opinion) whole wheat pastas out there. I tend to overeat pasta, so I don't choose it very often. Also doing half brown rice and half white rice is a good way to get more fiber. Again I don't eat an awful lot of rice. It's usually for a dinner with others, I wouldn't fix it just for me.

A sample of fiber content of some things: 1 Boca Burger (Flame Grilled)--4 g fiber, 4 g fat; 1 Boca Burger Original--4 g fiber, 1 g fat;

1 svg (7 crackers) Reduced Fat Triscuit, 4 g fiber, 3 g fat;

Shredded Wheat 'n Bran (18 pieces), 2.5 g fiber--when I first started including this in my diet, it was as a substitute for melba toast in the diet I was originally doing--couldn't find it, so I modified it by using this--6 pieces per meal. I don't really do this most days--if I did I'd probably weigh much less by now. The truth is it's filling, but boring as a food.

Apple (7.5 oz), 5.3 g fiber

Kiwi fruit, 2.5 g fiber

Popcorn (6 c popped), about 5 g fiber

Brown Rice (one-half cup), about 2 g fiber

Miller's Bran (one-third cup), 9 g fiber--my "magic fiber bullet" hahaha! There are some good hi-fiber cereals that compete with this, Kashi Good Friends for one.

Uncle Sam Cereal, 10 g fiber/1 cup

That about covers it for a few higher fiber things

Cheers to you all!

Carry a pen. "I was tired of compliments that stopped at my face," says Juanita Dillard, a 37-year-old makeup artist who weighed 274 pounds. "I was constantly surrounded by thin, gorgeous models, and I wanted to be like them."

Juanita started writing about her stress instead of feeding it. Within a year and a half, she dropped from a size 24 to a size 6. One time, halfway through a binge brought on by the stress of losing her pet, Juanita reached into her purse and felt her journal. Out it came, and she started writing. After putting her feelings down on paper, her desire to eat was gone." Journalizing has become my no-cal stress buster," she says.

It's time for a 4-day challenge for me (Fri-Mon). Goals are 84 oz water, less than 2000 cal eaten and at least a 1000 cal deficit. After my workout yesterday, I'm feeling like I'm on an even keel with my body. No aches, pains, I don't overdo it with the weights. I've done more weight workouts this month than in both November and December. And it's paying off and getting easier to get going.

Cheers to you all!

Thanks for your comments. I find it amazing that you have so much detail in your program, as far as calories, fiber, etc. It must be hard to keep track in such a way. How long have you been..I want to say in control, instead of dieting. Don't you absolutely hate that word?

Hi B.B., I have been walking on the treadmill and I've increased my time until I go back to 60 minutes. I've been doing legs and abs, stretching exercises for the shoulder and sitting in the sauna at the gym. I think I was so tense about everything yesterday that it made my muscles in my shoulder tense up. Or it could be the way I hold my arms while walking on the treadmill. I feel much better now, but thanks alot for your comments!

High calorie day yesterday. Still I'm in control. I feel very good adding more weightlifting to my routine, although it's hard to get it done--not because it hurts or I'm still sore, it's just mental at this point--being consistent is hard. It was that way with the jogging at first and I hope this becomes second nature the same way. It only takes a total of 25 min for the actual weightlifting, so it's not alot of time for the benefits I'm receiving.

Cheers to you all!

Adding weights to your exercise will make a big difference in your metabolism. Promise yourself that you'll do it for two weeks and know that every day, it will be really hard to make that choice. I think, once you get on a roll, you'll be ok.

Thanks for making me LOL with your Phyllis Diller quote. So... true...

SerDes19 on 01/26/2005:
I've struggled with cardio the same way you're struggling with weightlifting. In the beginning it's all mental but once I fall into that routine, I actually find myself getting excited to go work out. I guess you could call it a healthy addiction! Anyhow, it's great that you devote so much time to cardio every day. Today, I'm doing an hour cardio in the gym....if you don't hear from me within the next 2 days, you'll know I passed out and am in intensive care somewhere. lol Keep it up! Your determination will pay off.

borntocry on 01/26/2005:
Hi biscottibody! Congratulations on the measurements - an inch is quite a lot! If I could lose an inch on my hips... that would be a dream come true!

Thanks for the comment you left me. I'm not the middle child, I'm the oldest, with two younger brothers. And yes, for some reason, they've always been more demanding and have gotten more attention (and money) from my parents. (At least I know that my parents do appreciate it - I once heard my father tell someone that I'd never asked him for so much as a penny in all my life!)

It's funny you should mention being subjugated by one's children forever. My husband and I have been thinking about starting a family and I backed out because I decided I just wasn't ready to kiss my life as I know it goodbye forever! I guess I know I would just be a slave to my children...
