I just want to remind anyone who reads this what the DietDiaries is for--at least for me--it's for support! Not pontificating, although I have no problem with anyone doing that:-) When you signed on, this sentence preceded your clicking the "Submit" button: By hitting the Submit button above you hereby agree to the terms and policies of this web site.

From The Diet Diaries Terms of Service: Be nice to people. If you can't be supportive, go somewhere else.

I wish certain people were back on here, but what are you gonna do. The spirit of the site is made up of all of us, the ones here now and the ones who came before. If you're not really interested in improving yourself and expecting support, then maybe this is just not the place for you.

As for me, it is difficult to continue to make comments to people who don't comment to me, but I still try, I still read just about every diary.

I know I may be in a different place in my progress, so are others, it doesn't mean that a kind word or a little boost is not needed. Be kind and jump in with a pat on the back when you feel someone is doing
well--it won't kill you:-) Who knows, you may reap more comments yourself.

Cheers to you all!


As for me at the moment, I'm way out of the groove. My weight was up a half-pound this week. I am finally reading Overcoming Overeating by Jane Hirschmann and Carol Munter. It was recommended by Garlic to me so many moons ago--so far it really hits the nail on the head for me. Maybe you have to really get lost before you get found--hahaha!

Soon2BThin on 03/12/2004:
I agree with everything you said! And I know I need to comment more often. Sometimes I'm just darn lazy! Have a good weekend!


squiggly on 03/12/2004:
I didn't mean to make such a commotion. I hope you didn't perceive me as mean. I wasn't trying to be. Had I known that I would have caused all that has happened today, I wouldn't have said anything. You are doing well and I read your entry on a daily basis. Keep up the good work. I'm sorry if I came off being mean it was not my intention.


yoyo on 03/12/2004:
Hi Biscotti, I have been reading your entries for awhile now and I just wanted to say that your entries are always so well written, organized, neat, and consistent. I think it is great how even when you "fall off the wagon" ocassionally, you always get back up and start again and own up to your "mistakes" even after a few days off. Please keep up you encouraging attitude towards others here. You are a "pillar" of this site!


kanga on 03/13/2004:
You are so right and I am so wrong Ihave tried to keep read with others like myself who have so much weight to lose but younare right we all need support and I can only imagine that the almost there folks really do have a tough time. I will do better thank you for the courage to speak up and for your work among us all. By the way, you work a pretty mean program too!:) Have a great weekend.


lexxijazz on 03/13/2004:
Hi there! I am new here but wanted to say hey. I know what you mean by being out of the groove. I have been for so long but for the last 8 days I have been in the groove. I just pray every night to give me the strength I need to stay on track in the morning. You sound motivated, fun and friendly. I really look forward to getting to know you and many others in here! That book sounds great too. I just might have to check that one out! It sounds like it's getting u back in the groooooooove too! Hugs! Lexxijazz

I'll be doing a 3-Day Challenge. The above for the goals . . . I have been doing my jogging. Did only one Circuit Aerobic Workout. Only did the NordicTrack 1 or 2 days. I'll be posting my entry daily.

Hope you're all in the swing of things--I'll be trying to get back into some groove.

Cheers everyone!

Weight's up by a gob. I took a break from it all (except for jogging) for the last few days. My measurements are pretty much up--I quit after taking my waist. I'm going back to recording my food and using Fitday today.

I pretty much have eaten just about what I wanted these last few days--a good break for me. Maybe I've gotten it (eating with abandon) out of my system for awhile. Doing a "free day" once a week doesn't work for me. Making reasonable choices does; that's the plan. If at first you don't succeed, try try again!

Jogging is part of my routine lately, or I probably wouldn't have gotten any meaningful exercise. I did do some gutter cleaning and some other chores that were quite strenuous. So I haven't been a total slug!

Cheers everyone!

geevee on 02/24/2004:
I know what you mean. I dropped out of DD's for a few weeks because I was so disgusted with my last plateau, but then I started thinking like I had before, that this was it. I really couldn't expect to lose any more weight, blah blah. I didn't really overdo it. That big, black cloud - OVERWEIGHT - WAS FIRMLY ENTRENCHED IN THE BACK OF MY MIND. It wouldn't leave me in peace. So then I lost two pounds and it was like a "new world". It's so hard to stay on the straight and narrow ALL the time. What a worthy goal.

Anyway, it's time to get back to business! Good for you.


breakaway on 02/24/2004:
YOur entry today made tons of sense. The "free" day's don't work for me either! ANd like you said if at first you don't succeed, try try again! That is so true becuase my day sucked today so I am going to try it again, and again and again until I do succeed! YOu keep up the good work and it's great that you found out that the free day is just not for you. At least you didn't waste months trying it out for size first. Hang in there, you will beat this!


Grayjay on 02/25/2004:
It's hard work counting and measuring and thinking about food all the time. Sometimes it's good to take a break. I think you're right. Making good choices most of the time works all the time. As long as you get back on track after the break... it's the way to go. Take care, Grayjay Deb


Soon2BThin on 02/25/2004:
I've found that I can't even take one "free day". If I could just lose the weight first and then have the free day sometimes, I think I could maintain. But I have to lose the weight first. Relaxing a bit for a day or two just doesn't work, I've finally discovered. (Took me long enough, didn't it?!) But sometimes you just have to get it out of your system. So free time is over. Let's get back to losing, okay? I'm with you!


Soon2BThin on 03/06/2004:
Hey, I hope you're doing okay. You are missed here. It's Saturday and haven't seen you here for awhile.

You must always work not just within but below your means. If you can handle three elements, handle only two. If you can handle ten, then handle only five. In that way the ones you do handle, you handle with more ease, more mastery, and you create a feeling of strength in reserve. --Pablo Picasso

Not alot to say--I ate alot. Not real torn up about my food choices, still haven't been to the store. I did the jog about 30 minutes after the NordicTrack and it just about kicked my butt. High temp was about 80�F after snow on Saturday. Typical Texas Weather!

Cheers everyone!

I still have that nordic track in my place and I am getting up enough courage to challenge the bugger. Good for you for going against it. You will be kicking its butt in no time.


leg_cramp! on 02/20/2004:
Cheers! Great saying, by the way. I went totally against it in my childhood - tried everything, was pretty decent at anything, and have mastered nothing. Hmm, definitely something to ponder! Have a great one today and stay strong!

In this age, which believes that there is a shortcut to everything, the greatest lesson to be learned is that the most difficult way is, in the long run, the easiest. --Henry Miller

There's a mirror in the room where I use the Airdyne and it could sabotage me so badly if I let it. It must have been a reject from a "hall of mirrors," because my legs look no smaller than the first time I started using it about 3 years ago. And I know my legs are smaller--smaller in a regular mirror and smaller measurement-wise.

Mind you I do have big legs. I saw some program awhile back where this guy was getting implants in his calves because no matter how much he tried to bulk them up they stayed skinny. I don't have that problem. And I can actually pinch the skin, so I know I have very little fat back there. Still I can look at myself in that mirror and all I see is the same body from 3 years ago. I just have to remember it's not the same body!

Cheers everyone!

It's wonderful that you didn't allow that to distract you or allow you to feel down about yourself. Just remember that you are doing great and you are LOOKING great! Hang in there!


grayjay on 02/18/2004:
It's pretty impressive you don't let it get you down. Maybe it's time to remove the mirror, or buy another standing mirror - one that doesn't distort your image. Keep going... you're doing a great job. Grayjay Deb


breakaway on 02/18/2004:
Hi! My scale was exactly the same as WW but no I have not been to weigh in for several months now. I would love to go back but not sure what there going to rake out from my wallet to rejoin. If it's to much I won't go back but I have still been following there points and doing very well at that.


inmorning on 02/18/2004:
I hate mirrors too for the most part. Pictures are the ones that get me the most though. Anyway, good for you for keeping going. annastasia


geevee on 02/18/2004:
I think my full length mirror was made at the same factory as yours. I was feeling so thin and then when I looked in the mirror I realized that I'm still fat. It ruined my afternoon!


Soon2BThin on 02/18/2004:
Phooey on that mirror! I'll bet you're looking great! Keep up the good work. And have a great day tomorrow.


shellybelly on 02/18/2004:
Nope..it's not the same body. Don't listen to mirrors...they are the enemy!!! :-) Take care and keep it up!

Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength. --August Wilson

My weight's up--I pretty much expected such after not really tracking the last 2 weeks. As for measurements, I took 'em! Arm is down, but the rest are unchanged or ever so slightly up. Also, what I've noticed in the last week or so is that the ring of fat right below my biceps on both arms is gone--shocking! Other than that I'm still working on the midriff dimples--they're still there.

I didn't get my Circ Aer Wkt in yesterday--was just feeling kind of a little too crappy to do it. Will get it in today.

I'm determined to make my "good breakfast" a habit. Starting today, I will make a note of it below--yes/no.

Hope you're having a good food choice day.

Cheers everyone!

I like the quote. It's very thought provoking. I must apologize for not giving you the sour cream coffee cake recipe. I think it was you who asked for it. If I remember to bring it into the office within the next day or so, I'll e-mail the info to you.

Keep up the great job you're doing. You've come a long way....

Love the quote. Nothing is as powerful to me in seeing changes in my body. Great work...Mary


Soon2BThin on 02/17/2004:
Thanks for your comment. I sure need them right now. I've been struggling the past 2 days and not doing well. I really hate myself when I do this. But tomorrow is another day and I know, with the help of the DD, I'll be able to get back into it. Thanks again. You're doing great!


breakaway on 02/18/2004:
You will see such a big difference adding a "good" breakfast every day! You will be amazed at how much better it makes you feel. Good luck and great quote!!
