Did you know America ranks the lowest in education but the highest in drug use? It's nice to be number one, but we can fix that. All we need to do is start the war on education. If it's anywhere near as successful as our war on drugs, in no time we'll all be hooked on phonics. --Leann Lord

As far as my weight goes, I'm back to where I was just about a year ago (6.4.03)--boo-hoo! Really though, I'm okay!

I'm trying to get back to what got me this far. Trying to recommit myself. The truth is I've been making alot of poor food choices. I still haven't reincorporated the weight training. My neck and shoulder were giving me fits there for awhile, so I didn't want to take the chance of feeling worse. It seems to be much better now, so I have no excuse to get in a weight workout soon. On the other hand, I have been using FitDay.com daily so I know just how bad it is and that I'm positive that this is doable! It's not even close to impossible!

Yes it takes work, perseverance, and consistency--but it's doable!

Cheers to you all!

You really have to listen to your body and take care not to injure it. As my yoga teacher this morning was saying, "It's a lot easier to avoid injury than to recuperate from it."

Hi biscottibody,

Thanks for the comments you left me about running. No more self-flagellation, I promise! I feel much better about myself now that I've seen some improvement. The first few times I ran, it was hard to enjoy myself through the pain! But now that it's become just the tiniest bit easier for me, I actually have fun doing it. Thanks again!

I drank about 140 oz water. For my activity I did some weedeating and mowing for about 2� hours. Then did various trimming and yard cleanup for about 2 more hours. Got it all done before a major downpour. I did no other exercise for the day. That was more than enough!

Cheers to you all!

You are doing a great job with the water. I bought a 64oz mug and have problems finishing it once! How DO you do it?

Thank you for your comment. I have heard others tell me that I'm beautiful and amazing and all kinds of wonderful things. I always had problems believing them or even accepting those things because I am a humble person and because I went home to someone who believed I was least important of all and incapable of simple tasks and staying committed. Since he knows me best I tend to believe him. However with him gone it is so much easier to apply myself and prove the rest of world right- if not to him then at least to myself. I think I need to believe it more than he does. Thank you so much for your encouragement. You don't know how much it means to me.

In reference to the Andy Warhol quote, I read an article by one of his nephews who wrote about living with Uncle Andy and how each of the 5 or 6 nieces and nephews would take the tomato soup can picture he had given them to school for show and tell. The other interesting comment was about how Andy didn't want anyone to see him without his wig on, and once this nephew did and Andy was just horrified! That quote is so true!

Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat. --F. Scott Fitzgerald

My weight is the same this week. My measurements are up, down, and unchanged. As you can see below my weekly deficit was way out of whack for losing. I am recommitting to losing. These mini-foodfests (every 2 or 3 days) I've been playing with are a little like playing with fire. Eventually I'm going to gain. And if something happens that I can't exercise with the intensity I've been used to, I won't be a very happy camper. Time to clean up my food choices just a tad!

I've been consistent with the jogging and am still enjoying the hell out of it, but for all intents and purposes, I think I've been using it as a buffer for eating too many calories. I don't really care to count carbs or fat seriously, but I would like to keep my fat at about 30%--at 2000 calories that would be 66 grams of fat. Not a killer.

For my exercise:
Fri 5.21: Jog 25 min/DogJog 5 min/Walk 30 min

For exercise: Jog 20 min/Walk 35 min

Just trying to keep up with it on a daily basis. Didn't eat 96:-) mini eclairs like the day before. After my last weight workout I got a bit of a stiff neck. It has now settled in my shoulder. My plan is to do a small weight workout at some point today--it's not really painful, just a little stiff. Don't want to push it, but I don't think being a slug is helping either. So I'll test it!

Cheers to you all!

I got in a 20 min jog, but barely. There were some storms lurking and I didn't feel too safe.

The other thing was shopping--that counts for a bit.

Hmmmm...shopping....that's been my new addiction since I gave up cheese lol To bad the cheese was so much cheaper. Good job on getting the jog in. I wish I could jog, but it's so hard on your knees.

geevee on 05/15/2004:
I checked out your BMI calculator and am still within normal range, but now at 24.3 since the last pound I lost. I saw that height/weight/body fat chart somewhere else in my roamings.

I was thinking that Fitday is a coddler, making the normal weight range so wide (30lbs. up to 135lbs.) It's similar to what the clothing manufacturers have done by screwing up the sizes so you don't realize how fat you've become. I surely don't need the 14 extra pounds Fitday allows for normal weight. I'm going to stick with the more rigid measure of 99 to 121 lbs.

Thanks so much for the tea idea! I will look into it!! I love soy milk, that is all we drink actually, except for my daughter, I give her lowfat regular. I'll let you know if I find it. Thanks

When you realize you've made a mistake, make amends immediately. It's easier to eat crow while it's still warm. --Dan Heist

I did my measurements and they weren't quite as bad as I was expecting. I was up a total of 2 inches. All up slightly, except my waist was the same--kinda odd, but I'll take it!

I did a Circ Aer Wkt using the NordicTrack 61 min/7.0 mi and then a
Jog 20 min/Walk 15 min later in the damply damp humidity.

Thank you for your comments and support. I asked myself the same question . THe woman in question is not bright at all. She doesn't have the brains that GOd gave a goose. LOL!!!

Keep up the good work, if only for a while, if only for the twinkling of a tiny galaxy. --Wislawa Szymborska

Because I refuse to give up, I'll take up the question from Legcramps and make a weight goal. I haven't done that in a while. I'm going to make it 144--12 pounds from today's weigh-in. No date deadline. Just solidly trying to get there in a healthy way using eating habits that will continue to sustain me. No deprivation!

Good luck to me!

I'm going to get back to doing the weight work every 3 days. I pretty much have the jogging thing down. I've been doing 5 days on, 1 day off for a few cycles now. If I go up any more (in pounds), I may have to give it up--I can tell the difference between now and when I was at 150. Of course, why would I drag around 6 or 7 pounds more when I don't have to. Oh, let me go get a couple of large cans of Hawaiian Punch or something and run up and down the street--haha! Or should I say huff & puff!

I forgot to do measurements today, so I'll do them tomorrow instead. I'm going to try to get back on the bandwagon or maybe a new bandwagon. Somehow the old one may not be for me anymore!

Cheers to you all!

borntocry on 05/12/2004:
Yeah, good luck to you!! You make me feel like nipping out for a jog myself! Now that would really be a once-in-a-lifetime event!

"....if only for awhile" I like that!

Thinking back over my 8�mo. odyssey, and comparing what I used to eat/drink with what I currently do, these are the weight loss principles that have helped me. Overall, eating less. Having small snacks rather than regular meals. Cutting out completely ALL fast foods and prepared foods such as TV dinner, etc. Eating less meat and more fruits and vegetables. Adjusting my intake for those weak moments when I give in to having that piece or taste of cheese cake or Key Lime pie or chocolate. No deprivation for me either. Goodies are strictly limited. Daily exercise a MUST. Within these parameters, the weight slowly continues to melt away. Now it seems so simple and logical yet it took me years to work this thing out. This is the way that has proven to be effective for me. Curls'nCuffs' plan is totally different from mine, yet equally effective if not more so because of the tremendous amount she has lost. Each person knows best what works for him/her. When you gain you KNOW what you shouldn't have done.

So, good luck to you on your renewed quest "...if only for awhile".

legcramps on 05/12/2004:
Good for you! Your resolve and determination will get you there, you are a very strong person and I admire you for that! Changing around eating patterns or exercise patterns will help you to find what works best, and keep you motivated to stay in the game! Good luck with your 'new bandwagon'. When you say you can tell the difference between now and when you were 150 - what is that difference?
