(1800 Cal * <40g Fat * 36g Fiber * 90 oz Water)
Weight: 156.0

Start: 189 (June 2001)
Low: 154.5 (Oct 2003)
Current BMI=26.8; My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8


I had another good day overall. I got in a pre-breakfast workout on the NordicTrack, 60 min/6.6 mi. Then later on I got in a 20 min jog--kinda pushed myself, clocked it at 1.9 mi--best mileage for 20 min since I started jogging in Summer '02. I'm very pleased, I guess the earlier workout was a pretty good warmup.

I don't like waking up hungry in the night or in the morning, so I'm kind of messing around with my calories. Usually a bowl of cereal or some popcorn before bed does the trick--just tried "Kashi GoLean Crunch"--it's a bit like Cracker Jacks. All I can say is losing 10 more pounds is turning out to be a real ****--I don't want to be deprived. I find that hunger can kind of sneak up on me. Maybe it's time to try pre-doing my food and eating every 2 hours. But I like a mystery, but I also want to lose 10 more pounds. Anyway . . .

Cheers everyone!

I went and looked at your entries for the past month, and it seems like you got your exercise down pat. You've been averaging 2500 calories a day though and at that rate you will just maintain your weight. For those last 10 pounds you need to cut back the calories just a bit, depending on how quickly you want to lose it. I know you dont want to be hungry but cutting back just a bit for a while will probably do the trick. Good luck :) Kim

Back in 2001 when I first came here I was eating every 2 hours and it really did work. I should really do it again but while watching the baby it's pretty hard to do. I am done sitting on friday so maybe on monday I will try it out for a few day's. Your doing just fine and that 10 lbs will come off! With all the exercise you get in it is bound to come off! Have a great day today


legcramp on 10/23/2003:
Good job with the jogging!! I have the day off tomorrow and so i'm going to try jogging some of the route that i've been walking lately. I hope to work up to a 20 minute jog, but i'll be happy with 5 minutes right now!! Keep up the great work and thanks for your comments yesterday! They really helped me get back on track!! Eating every 2 hours will probably help curb your appetite and you may even find that you're eating less because you're less hungry! Good luck with your new plan of action!


geevee on 10/23/2003:
Your track record pretty much parallels mine. My high was 167 and today I'm 156 too. The weight sure doesn't come off fast. Long ago I stopped the three meals a day regimen. I just can't imagine eating an entire meal at one sitting and when I go out to eat, I bring over half the meal back home. I'm eating every 2-3 hours. I think it's better than overloading one's system with so much food at one time.


shirleycatt on 10/23/2003:
Wow I wish I had as much dedication to exercise. You are my idol! The last 10 pounds are always the hardest to lose and easiest to put back on. Damn those 10 lbs...! and I agree.. Kashi GoLean is really good!! Keep up the dedication!


breakaway on 10/23/2003:
Thanks for the comment today! I can't wait to see how the more meals thing goes for you. I am really considering that myself. I will be watching to see how you do. Have a great day.


Soon2BThin on 10/23/2003:
I am really envious of all that exercise! I hope I can work up to doing that much. You're doing great! I think we want to get down to about the same weight. When I was 143 for just a short time back in 2001, I felt great. Good luck to us!

Happy Wednesday!

I pushed myself (for a change) and got in a pre-breakfast NordicTrack + Circuit Workout. I did 51 min/5.6 mi on the NT and about 15 min of weights. Later in the evening I did a 25 min jog (11-14) and a bit of walking.

A good food and exercise day all in all!

Cheers everyone!

Good job with the exercise. Aren't you tired and weak in the morning though? I tried going to the gym every morning for about 2 weeks, and it wore me right out. I was always so weak that I couldn't do anything! It feels much better for me to do my exercising at night, after eating. Well, have a great day today and for the rest of the week!!!

legcramp on 10/22/2003:
Regarding your response to my 'morning weakness'(!), i'm going to try walking in the mornings starting tomorrow. Actually, I was supposed to start today, but, well, you read my entry!!! I hope I can get used to it, because I do enjoy that crisp morning air and the fact that I can see where i'm going!!! I don't usually get out at night until it's almost pitch black! Thanks for the suggestion with eating something before I exercise. That might be the difference i'm looking for, as i've never tried to eat anything before i've gone walking. Thanks!!

HEY Thanks for catching that for me! (Day 41) I didn't even notice! I changed it.

I'm up a pound. Measurements are mostly up except for Abdomen and Wrist--they're down. For exercise yesterday I counted 2 hours of grocery/general shopping.

I found some jeans, but I don't really like them on second thought. One of 'em is fairly comfortable, but when I look at my rear in the mirror the pockets are sooo badly too damn low. The others are almost exactly like some "Landlubbers" I had in about 8th grade. They're comfy, the pockets are big, but I haven't worn anything remotely related to "flare," "bootcut," or "bell bottom" in about a zillion years so I have to adjust.

As I was trying them on I thought these are just transitional apparel:-) Also, one's a 12 and the other's a 10--when is the sizing system going to get more uniform--it's just nuts!

For Sunday I did a 30 min jog and about 10 min walking. For Saturday I mowed for about 1 hr, 30 min.

Cheers everyone!

My activity for yesterday was driving. My neck was still hurting from the day before, and to be honest I needed a break from busting my a** for a day--ahhh, renewal:-) So today I'm going to jog and maybe do a little extra something else.

Cheers everyone!

Happy Thursday!

Got in a 15 min walk--had to go after my dog. A dump truck got out of her way to ensure her existence as my pet. I've been putting off training her to come to me when she gets out like this--it's very bad--I've got long leads to work on it--just have to do it. Then I got in a Circuit Aerobics Workout, I'm trying to do it every other day. This included the Airdyne for 62 min/13 mi. No jog, that was enough and my neck is a little sore today.

Cheers everyone!

Took me a week (working every day with my dog) to train him to stay in the yard. I used long leads also and every day for about 1/2 hour I would train him. He is really good now at coming to me when I call and staying in the yard. Good luck! Your doing a super job!!

Hi!

I had a "free" day yesterday--of course it's not free. I'll be making up for that horrendous deficit today or tomorrow when I have to get in a bunch of yard work.

Yesterday I got in a 30 min jog (11-19). I have a little confession to make--I spit when I jog. Especially at dusk. Not just when I get a gnat stuck in my throat. Always after or before a car comes past. Once I was on a bridge and I was as squeezed as close to the rail as possible (I'm in the lane against traffic) and this stupid-ass **** in a black Maxima squeezed right back with this look like I'd strangled her remaining functioning ovary. I jerked my head around and tried to spit at her car. I missed the car and pulled a muscle in my neck. So since then I've been trying to cut down on my spitting. It's kind of hard. Also when a car is coming toward me I immediately move to the other side of the street and quickly move back. Luckily there's not a ton of traffic--just the occasionally a**hole who doesn't think I should be taking up any space at all and purposefully takes over the middle of the road and thensome.

This leads me to something I heard during the Tour de France. Didja know the riders urinate as they ride along? Imagine that!

Cheers everyone!

Hey. Thanks for the comment. I found out after my entry that my bf's mom only has a few days left. I didn't mention it too much because my boyfriend doesn't like that I write about him. But I need somewhere to get things off my chest, so he understands. She has esophogeal cancer, not sure how that is spelled. She found out about a year ago. The cancer spread. I am going to see her tomorrow. I'm pretty sure that will be the hardest thing I will ever have to do. I don't know how good of an idea that is. I'm going to get very upset and I don't know if she needs to see that. My bf's already lost his dad, so this is just so much harder. Poor kid. Well, I hope you are doing well. Thanks for you thoughts. Shelly

LOL! I really, truly did laugh out loud at this entry! You are too funny! So are you spitting at the cars only? Or spitting just because?


ThinLee on 10/16/2003:
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. You are too funny! So do they just pee in their pants or are they hooked up to a catheter or something?


legcramp on 10/16/2003:
LOL, hilarious entry!!! Looks like you're doing okay with everything, very consistent with your exercise - congrats! That's the hardest thing for me. I have to remember to start small and work my way up - I always overwork myself and then the next day I never feel like exercising......have a great day today!

Weight's up half a pound. Not to worry, my measurements are all down except Arm and Wrist are the same--overall I'm down 2.5 inches.
Woo-hoo!

I did my Circuit Aerobic Workout yesterday--Airdyne 21 min/5 mi and the usual 10 weight, etc exercises. I also got in a 20 min (9-11) jog. Cheers everyone!

I didn't have any lingering effects on my knee--I'm glad for that:-) So I did one of my Circuit Aerobic Workouts consisting of 4 min on the Airdyne interspersed with a weight workout X 5 for a total of 20 min on the Airdyne and 10 weightlifting/abs/chair exercises. Then I did a little extra on the Airdyne (Total, including the 20 min above ---> 8.4 mi/34 min).

Have a good day! Cheers everyone!
