Talk about nighttime eating--it's February, not September--I ate yesterday like I needed to start hibernating really soon or something.

Good site! I read the reviews on The Fat Fallacy and also a couple of the other books mentioned. Another day I'll check out the links to the French diet that sound interesting. Thanks!

These kind of days happen unfortunatly...I wanted to fill you in our our late night walking. My husband works at all the schools because he is the computer manager/computer engineer for the district and he has the keys to every school here in the city so we go after everyone is gone for the night so we don't have to look funny lol. SOmetimes the cleaning ladys are there and they look forward to seeing us when we come. It's great exercise though and fun to be on our own ;)

Never grow a wishbone, daughter, where your backbone ought to be. --Clementine Paddleford

For my activity: Jog 20 min/Walk 20 min

I may be back on track, I may not be. Nevertheless, I'm adding a Friday weigh-in. I took my jog in the light yesterday rather than after dark like I have been. I was thinking about the percentage losses (in 10% increments) that I have achieved and would like to continue to achieve. I want this done--preferably this year.

Okay, so Oprah had her show about how she "did it" and she really stresses this not eating past a certain time in the evening. For her, 7:30p.m. How many of you have tried this and is it sustainable? I don't even think not eating at night is doable.

Somehow to me it represents a type of perfectionism/martyrdom that I'm not willing to try. I guess what I'm saying is, is this sort of a standard that a foodaholic (for lack of a better word) should strive for?

I guess that's why I'm stuck here in the 160s--maybe I should be willing to try it . . .

MSG is not the product of some laboratory, but is the naturally occurring salt of glutamic acid also called glutamate, an amino acid (a building block of protein). It's the free form of glutamate that imparts a unique flavor--a savory quality different from sweet, sour, salty, and bitter (the standard four flavors). The Japanese call this umami and consider it a fifth flavor. MSG has been in use for centuries extracted from seaweed or fermented from molasses or sugar beets. Certain foods contain a lot of free glutamate naturally, which is one reason they taste so good. These include such favorites as tomatoes and Parmesan cheese. Green peas and corn are also rich in free glutamate. A pizza with tomato sauce probably has more MSG than a plate of mu shu pork.

Cheers to you all!

That info on glutamate is very interesting. I'll chick foodwatch when I finish reading the diaries. Thanks!

Yesterday was a good day for you. Me too. Too bad we can't be consistent!


starlight on 02/16/2005:
My take on the "not eating a tnight" thing is that its probably what people need to do if that happens to be your time you noramlly "pig out." I was that way for a while this past summer. I would do great all day, but at night I just wanted food. It became habit to eat junk at night. My routine is now different and therefor no longer do it, so its not an issue with me anymore. But, i think if you dont have a problem with pigging out at night, then who cares if you eat a sandwich at 8:00? as long as its in your daily calorie/fat allowance. Thats just my take on it. I agree on it being a perfectionism thing. In my opinion if you're truly hungry you should eat, even if its at 8:00 at night.


Soon2BThin on 02/16/2005:
When I was really doing well, a long time ago, haha, I would not eat anything after 7pm. Oh, except my Metamucil, does that count? But I guess that did make me feel full without more food. Drink the sugar -free kind followed with a full glass of water and you feel pretty full for quite awhile. And it's good for you--fiber. So maybe Oprah would consider that eating, I don't know. I do know that the last couple of days I didn't eat after about 5pm, it just happened that way, and I didn't eat really well but still lost a little weight. Although, that could be from the days before that. Oh, wait, I haven't had any good days before that either, haha. So it's probably just one of those scale glitches. Have a good Thursday!

Oh, "Jack & Bobby" is on WB network not UPN.

So if you're (GeeVee for sure, maybe Borntocry?) intrigued by the "French Women Don't Get Fat" deal, check this out-- My Big Fat French Experiment. I had no idea the book had gotten so popular--where have I been--hahaha!

My eating wasn't too hot yesterday--so . . .

Thurs 2.10: Jog 20 min/Walk 20 min
Fri 2.11: NordicTrack 60 min/7.0 mi
Sat 2.12: Jog 20 min/Walk 15 min

Bottom line, I had 2 days of missed jogging--missed my weight workouts during the week--I did have to run after the dog one of those days, so that counts I suppose. I didn't really keep track of my food--sometimes it just gets to be too much, too methodical. So I'm back to chip away some more!

If you like good TV, catch "Jack & Bobby" on Wednesdays (UPN)--it's slow, but good--not too many shows out there like it these days.

From Tuesday 2.8: I'm up on my weigh-in, but that's not the full story. I can get into the littlest running shorts I have and they're very roomy for the first time--woo-hoo! It's not always about the scale . . .

I wrote that on Tuesday and then proceeded to skip at least 2 weight workouts this week. So there you have it.

More from Tues: On my measurements I'm down .25 inch on both bust and waist--but up .75 overall. I'm doing the right things for the most part. I, like many of us, feel that 5 days done right don't make up for the other 2 done completely wrong. I will persevere. The consistent weight work is making me stronger--I'm grateful that I'm able to do it. I'm going to start consistently skipping 2 days between sessions (mine is a full body workout) and will add another set of reps at a lower weight for tomorrow's workout.

I also realize that a 20-25 min jog is a piece of cake as long as I take a day off here and there. I guess what I'm saying is it's time to "let that be" as a "big deal"--it's a routine part of my fitness plan. It's time to step it up in a sense and think more in terms of cross-training and doing different things exercise-wise. It may be time for me to start to do the jog first thing instead of in the evening. I know it will be tough for awhile to do this--but I'm going to try it anyway.

As for the regular shorts--they are just about wearable, so that's something.

Cheers to you all!

breakaway on 02/14/2005:
What an awesoe plan! Are you real expierienced with weight training? Do you have an opinion on where my husband and I should start? Were pretty overweight so I didn't know if we should wait till we lose a little more weight or if we should start right away. If you have any opinion I would welcome it. Were looking for any ideas we can get.


cowboy on 02/14/2005:
You are doing a great job with your exercise. I'm a firm believer in 4 on 3 off, or 3 on 4 off. It's the only way to train. I also like doing aerobic first, then weight-training. Or doing the weight training and aerobic on different days. People do not realize that weight training is SO important in every age group.

I started eating (out of boredom) some fudge topping (hot fudge) meant for a gift--why would I do that. I ate about 500 cal worth of it--not heated. I didn't even have the ice cream for it--it's great heated with a little ice cream. Looking back it was good, but not that great.

I'm lucky I was able to get in my weight workout--now that was empowering--Yeah!!!

Thank you Biscotti Body for the info on the donation to keep this site up and running. I wonder if there is a way we can see who is contributing. As some people have mentioned it's not fair if some do it and others do not unless it will be set up that only those who "contribute" will be permitted access.

Let me know if you receive a response from Jay/Adam.

Have a GREAT OP day!

For my activity: NordicTrack 44 min/5.0 mi;

My food choices yesterday were nothing to write home about. I actually ate a cherry fried pie (albeit a small one). In fact the amount of fried food I ate was incredible and I felt blobby when I got up today.

It reminded me that I've spent alot of the last 8 months or so eating poorly chosen food. I don't know what has helped the compulsion of eating like this for most of the last 10 days--because it's been pretty good (except for yesterday)--except the regular weight training. Nothing else is different.

I have a Circ Aer Wkt scheduled for today and maybe a jog.

Cheers to you all!
