Third day of a 4-day challenge (Sat-Sun-Mon-Tues) consisting of 100 oz water . . . 1000 cal deficit/day. . . <1900 cal/day.

I met 2 out of 3 goals--couldn't get in all that water--just a bit too ambitious when I'm not doing alot outside. And we've got a cold snap, so I don't really feel like I need it.

I wasn't too sure I'd make it this far into the challenge with this much success, but it hasn't been all that hard. I have tried to focus on what I want for myself as far as continued weight loss success goes. It's a process, I may tweak the goals, but if I keep moderation in mind, the rest of it takes care of itself.

My weight is up a half-pound. I took my measurements for the first time in a few weeks and they're DOWN a full inch--better than UP!

Cheers to you all!

Wow! Great job on your measurements! That means that whatever you're doing is working. Doesn't matter how cold it is where you are, you still have to drink that water! But then, I don't think I had even one sip yesterday, so who am I to say?!!! Have a great day today!


Becca27 on 12/15/2004:
For me, 28 oz of water is ambitious. 100oz is staggering! Congrats on the measurements. You probably gained muscle weight, which would explain why the scale isn't down. All that matters is how our clothes fit!!! Keep up the great work and set new goals and make a new challenge!

Ooh-la-la but my new shoes are quiet! If I had to name them I would have called them "Cat Burglar"--haha! Next spring the toads may not be able to hear me coming up the street in time to get out of the way!

As it is the real name, Nimbus, has this meaning: 1 a: a luminous vapor, cloud, or atmosphere about a god or goddess when on earth b: a cloud or atmosphere (as of romance) about a person or thing

Now that's curious. It could be construed as the "god/goddess" passing toots--or having a cloud follow them like "Pigpen" of Peanuts fame. I'm not sure that's a great name for a shoe. I remember a few years ago Reebok named a shoe Incubus. In medieval Europe, an incubus was a demon believed to descend on sleeping women and have sex with them. Of course they pulled the shoe from the market.

Cheers to you all!

If it wasn't out of sight, I suppose I was eating it yesterday.

Here's a link to a site with a calculator to change your calories around to sort of trick your metabolism, Zig-Zag Calculator for Fat Loss and/or Muscle Gain. BTW, I have no affiliation with this site, I just found it in a blog I read occasionally.

I've been trying to find a particular cookbook and I ran across a recipe for a thing called "Aunt Dovies." After reading it, it may need to be renamed "Salmonella Dovies" hahahaha--as it had just about nothing in it but raw eggs.

Cheers to you all!

Hi Biscotti - I appreciate your comments. I might count calories but only to keep tabs on what I'm eating, otherwise I could easily overeat. I am by no means an extremist. I normally eat about 1500 cal. a day which is one of the reasons the weight comes off so slowly. As for the comments from my well-meaning but ignorant family about my weight loss, whatever they say is to be ignored. They just don't know what they're talking about. You know when I weighed 125 after college, NO ONE EVER told me I was thin. I NEVER was thin! At 5'2" I look normal at 125 but by no means even "slim", though compared to my hefty 165 last year, yes, I do look slim now if you think on a comparative basis. Each of us knows the difference between "slim", "thin" and "fat". So I can cheerfully ignore everything I hear from my FAT family! They know they're fat.

As for the Crystalens. My opthamologist told me about that last Dec. and said that people without serious problems are opting for this procedure because the lens that is implanted makes the wearing of glasses unnecessary since the lens is corrected for whatever your vision needs.

For me, I'll keep my natural lens until it no longer functions. I don't have faith in many of the new things available. I have an appointment with him in the next few weeks and will be interested in finding out if he is "pushing" this new lens concept. It's definitely NOT for me. I'll have to check with my daughter and find out what she's doing with her "temporary" lenses. I'll let you know.

At least you wrote it all down - you can always backtrack to this day when you're feeling really hungry again, and try to figure out why. Of course, that would be more work than I would be willing to do, but i'm sure i'm far more lazy than a lot of other people!

I did a little evaluation on my jog yesterday. My best for 20 min, since returning to jogging again a couple years ago, was 1.9 mi. The best for 12 min--the test I'll do again before the end of this year--is 1.3 mi (Oct 2003)--the worst was .9 the day I started jogging. I'd like it to be 1.5 mi for the upcoming test.

I'm going to go back on a little stricter eating program here for awhile. I suppose I'll have a few cravings--haha! I'll let you know!

On that jog yesterday I really pushed it--yet those 10 min seemed to take about 9 times as long (my perception) as the usual leisurely 20 min. I guess It was because I was so aware of my breathing. My HR was only 160 when I took it when I stopped--I wasn't exactly killing myself. I just was trying to pace myself.

I heard a little thing about the Canadian woman (she's now 84) who did the voice of Rudolph in the animated "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer." She sounded really good--she doesn't get any royalties from her performance after all these years. Burl Ives was the only one who had a contract to allow more than a one-time payment. Something that wouldn't happen today. Apparently she still takes "grandmotherly" acting parts these days.

Cheers to you all!

I love your quote today. "Starting Over" needs it pasted to her comment page. You're doing a great job with your jogging. So much of that is a mental challenge. Some days it's there, some days it isn't. Yesterday I ran 4 miles. Today, I lost my mind at 1 and switched over to the elliptical. I just do my best to challenge myself and keep saying, "Something is better than nothing" on those days I feel disappointed. Keep up the great work!
