I started here on Diet Diaries 2 years ago today at 185 pounds and BMI of 31.8 (obese) and I'm at some maintenance (my body's, not mine:-) weight, but I'm going to keep at it until I reach at least a consistent weight/BMI below overweight (at most 145).

I took a break from exercise. My fat grams were a little high, but it would have been okay had I refrained from ice cream or just chosen to eat a smaller portion. I am really feeling the struggle, but I'm facing it and I feel differently this time. I'm not pressuring myself to get boxed in by bland food choices, and I'm paying attention to portions for the most part. In short, I'm eating what's available--but since I'm measuring portions (ballparking really:-), I don't think I'm overdoing it. I'm truly not depriving myself, but I'm staying just about in my limits. I'm feeling good, but with time and habit, I'll know what's what. Does that make sense?

Anyway, I'm rambling. I only had 2 coffees--no other caffeine products and I don't feel deprived about that either. I'm one who can drink pot after pot of coffee given the opportunity and time:-)

I have my jog scheduled for today--it's an unusually warm day here--supposed to get a small cold front, but should be great to get out, considering I was jogging in 92 degree heat some days back in July. I'll take a pretty day any day;-)

Hope you have a lovely afternoon!

Congratulations of two years of sticking with yourself and facing the struggle. What is making you "feel the struggle"? I think the way you are handling food is great- we are in this for the rest of our lives. Beating myself up for small infractions defeats the purpose. For me, feeling "boxed in" is the prelude to "busting out".

Happy Anniversary at DD!! You sound a lot like me, since we've both been here 2 years now. I'm not depriving myself but trying to watch the portion sizes. I had already lost quite a bit of weight before I found DD and that's really too bad. I wish I had a record of my whole weight loss. You are doing great and I'm sure you will reach your goal. I have confidence that I will too, in time (who knows how much time, right?) But we'll just hang in there, when it happens, it will happen. We're just doing the best we can. I would love to be able to maintain at 145 also. Let's do it!

Happy Saturday!

I got my exercise by doing almost 2 hours of leaf and yard cleanup. It's still not finished, so I'll probably do a little more today. I think I'll slack off otherwise, maybe do a little exercise bike or NordicTrack later on.

Have a good food choice day--I'm trying pretty hard not to undermine myself in this area--as usual it's a struggle (as it is for many of us) to one degree or another. My food choice success isn't on the same page as my exercise success.

I did my 22 min jog yesterday. Today I feel the soreness from the reverse lunges. Will probably do a little yard work later on--leaf-o-rama--joyfulness abounds--hahaha!

I couldn't find Nutritional Info for the Caribbean Chicken Salad from Chili's so I substituted Chili's "Guiltless Grill Chicken Salad with Dressing" from CalorieKing.com--for WW people, the quoted version is 5 points. I'm sure the one I had was a little higher in calories, but then again I can't find the info. On the other hand I had a bit of Chili's mashed potatoes and I used the homemade (with butter and milk) version from Fitday's info. So it probably balances out. Again, these are guidelines for me and I'm using them to count--it ain't the 10 commandments for crying out loud;-)

I tried a Kashi GoLean Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar--recommend it highly--and it will certainly work your jaw muscles if nothing else--hahaha!

I came so close to compulsively making fresh homemade macaroni&cheese the other day. I didn't, but I did get the fixin's for it--I'm going to try to plan a free day for next Wednesday. This is because I'm doing fairly well making food choices. If I fall off in a major way over the weekend, I'll rethink that free day plan, but I think I can make it 'til then:-)

Have a good day!

>>>>UPDATE<<<< CharlieAngel, thanks for taking the time out to help me.

I had called the Chili's number earlier to see what they could contribute to my cause. According to them the Caribbean Salad has 34g fat, 650 calories, 48g carbohydrate, and 38g fat.

I updated my numbers above. The person on the line couldn't give me the number for fiber just like it said on the Dotti's website. I'll drop her a note to say what I found. Should be interesting to know why there's such a difference. Also, Taco Bell (for instance) puts it's Nutritional Info on it's website--I can't imagine why Chili's doesn't. *Cheers*

CharlieAngel on 11/08/2002:
OK...SORRY ABOUT THIS! The Caribbean Chicken Salad with dressing is 885 calories, 45 grams of fat and 89 grams carbs and WW points is 21.5. I find this information on Dotti's Weight Loss Zone...she is on Weight Watchers and has literally hundreds of restaurants listed on her site. She not only lists the points but also the calories, fat and carbs. But, hey, now you are armed with more information right! And tomorrow is a brand new day with no mistakes in it! Have a great weekend, love ya, Charlotte

SoccerMom on 11/08/2002:
That homemade mac and cheese sounds wonderful...but I'm trying to avoid the carbs. Phooey!

Have a great weekend!

Soon2BThin on 11/08/2002:
Okay, I was going to suggest www.dottisweightlosszone.com too but Charlotte beat me to it. This site is great! Check it out.

Just wanted to get back to my logging and goals. Will just have to see how this goes. I didn't work out yesterday. Didn't eat all that well. So I'm going to try this again. I haven't gone totally off the mark most days, but it usually helps me to see it on paper.

Have a good afternoon!

It's Election Day!

I am up 1 pound--no biggie--I haven't been logging my food. I did my 20 min jog yesterday. I sound like a broken record, but I'm so pleased:-) This was my last scheduled jog, so I have to come up with a new schedule. I'll keep the 3 day routine and add a couple minutes a week (actually every 4 sessions) up until 35 min, then I'll see how I feel.

As for my measurements, I don't have any explanation. My bust is up an inch and my leg measure is down a bit. I just measure and am ecstatic when they're down--what can I say?

If you can, get out and vote (if you haven't already)! Have a wonderful day!

kyrin on 11/05/2002:
Congrats on those shifting inches, gal! Does anyone really complain about increasing their bust measurements? LOL

Congrats too on making it through the jog schedule. I'm proud of you!

That's great that you're doing so well on your jogging program. I love jogging, but I never seem to be able to stick to it. At least walking is something I can be consistent with. Good for you on your measurements, too.

Just a short entry to log my exercise. On Friday I did my 20 min jog. Then earlier today I did my Circuit Aerobic Workout.

Hope you have a lovely day!

Happy Friday!

I did no exercise. My legs are extremely sore--except for my quads--those darn lunges! I don't think I'll have trouble with my scheduled jog--since it obviously doesn't work those muscles. You can think you're in pretty good shape, then do a few lunges and "slap!"--you ain't in no kind of shape, honeeeeee!

Have a good one!

MichelleP on 11/01/2002:


Sounds like your legs are telling you to give them a rest! Funny how you can do one thing and it really does feel out of sorts the next day! Have a wonderful weekend!

Soon2BThin on 11/01/2002:
Oh, gosh, those lunges!! I tried them a couple of weeks ago, but gave them up. They hurt my knees so bad! And I kept falling over to one side or the other. I am not coordinated at all, haha! Keep up the good work. You're doing great!

Finally, for the first time in at least 2 months, I did my Circuit Aerobic Workout using the Airdyne. I guess it took about an hour. It feels good to get back into the swing of things:-)

Have a great day!

kyrin on 10/31/2002:
<font color=#ff9900> HAPPY HALLOWEEN, Biscotti! You get attagirls for the Circuit Workout. I'll bet it did feel good to get back into the swing of things. Let's do it again today.

Lots of orange fruits and veggies. Yes?

you're doing great with exercise, and sounds like you're feeling better for it too. I need to get some more enthusiasm back 'specially as it is so cold and dark here at nights, it's often much easier to cosy up in the house than get on with some exercise...

kyrin on 10/31/2002:
<font color=#ff9900> <img src="http://cjgilliscollectibles.com/pumpkin_sm2.gif"> Me again!

If you get the time in between trick'o'treaters, the group has a chat scheduled tonight (9PM EST) over at dietdiarieschat. We'd love to see you there...where we can all avoid the candy together.

Have a <i>Boo</i>-tiful day! {grins}

Hooray for you! Doesn't it feel <i>good</i> to do that? Have a wonderful day.

I did my 20 min jog. It was about 1.7 miles as I clocked it. The first time I checked mileage for 20 min, I did 1.5 back in mid-August, so I'm making some progress.

Food choices could have been better. Plus, I did have a bit of
chocolate--mini-Hershey bars. Not my favorite brand of chocolate, but it's still chocolate, right?

Drank about 40 oz water. Have a great day!

BellaK on 10/30/2002:
Congrats on sticking to your jog and making time/mileage progress! I'm sure you burned the calories from that mini-Hershey-but-still chocolate then! Have a great one! :o) Bella

kyrin on 10/30/2002:
That sounds like some nice progress...especially since you haven't been pushing to increase your mileage. Way to go, Biscotti!
