Thanks Biscotti! I appreciate your supportive comment!


geevee on 07/12/2010:
You are on a roll! Don't stop now! If you get hungry, thrive on the feeling, reminding yourself of the scale, your BMI and hopefully, how close you are getting to fitting back into whatever article of clothing you've chosen. Doing that really helped me.

Good job! Do you think it's from all the walking?

For my activity: Walk 30 min

I just had to have a piece of cake--small, but it took up 160 calories. I'm going to attempt to count calories, etc for at least a week. One phone call from one niece polluted my relatively easy breezy mindset.

Of course, I had to take the call--meet what has become a predictable conversation head-on. I just have to change how I handle it (and realize how little connection and control I have). I also must try to have faith that changing myself will be helpful to me in the long run. If I provide a good example eventually--a bonus--but that cannot be my objective at the moment.

I think the number of calories that cake has is one of those cosmic jokes, or a Karmic riddle, or something. How can something so desirable, so delicate, so small, have THAT many calories in it???!!!! If I am ever fortunate to meet St. Peter, perhaps I will make inquiries.

Sorry about the family problems. Yet another exercise (for you) in how to separate what you can change and what you cannot. Serenity anyone?

This made me laugh. So true, and cake can definitely be a temptation for me. I hope today is going better for you.


Maria7 on 07/08/2010:
Congratulations on your success of 155!


Moody3 on 07/08/2010:
What a great mindset biscotti~

don't beat yourself up over the cake~at least you kept it small~which is better than I would do if I had cake in the house~


just42day on 07/08/2010:
Thanks for your kind words. I hope all is well. I think a small piece of cake is ok. The pt is it was small and you moved on from there. Good job!

Donkey on 07/08/2010:
This time around, I am trying to do things RIGHT. My main method to see if I am "doing things right" is to ask myself if this is something that I can do or continue on a long-term basis.

So I'm down a pound today. Hard not to satisfy my curiosity about my wt when I can get into a pair of shorts previously unzippable.

AHHHH yes, that sounds marvellous... a pair of shorts previously unzippable!!!! I love the feeling!


Donkey on 07/05/2010:
Woo-hoo! on the shorts!!!!!! I have a pair -- I'm afraid to even try, right now. Don't want to be discouraged at this point. A one-pound loss is my goal this week, too. I'm trying to resist the scale until "Weigh Day" though.

Yes! Good job!

Weights (Healthy Weight Ranges for me according to BMI):
141# Healthy
:: 132# quarter-Healthy :: 123# mid-Healthy

To put the above in perspective--where I'm nearly at: 155# is mid-overweight. I'd be glad to get to 141, give or take a pound or two and remain there for at least a year. (Still slightly pie in the sky.) I don't foresee that it will be terribly easy to get there or stay there.

Didn't get in the bike ride. That's okay--I'm only slightly sore from the wt trng. Will probably do the full workout next time, which s/b tomorrow.

Umpqua on 07/02/2010:
You've definitely come a long way, good for you! I think me, you and Geevee are all the same height because 141 is my healthy bmi too. And on us shorties every pound makes a difference. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I started out at 5'2 3/4". Now I'm down to 5'1" ! Horrors! I can't afford to get any shorter. At the rate I'm going I'll end up a midget.

For my activity: Walk 30 min; Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (13 min)

Finally did some wt trng. Used the 13# dumbbells, but only did about half of what I had done on the last workout. Feeling good after the workout is more important than overdoing it for me right now. There's time/room for improvement:-)

I'd just like to be a little more consistent with wt trng for July--I see nothing standing in my way on that note. I missed eight chances in June--mostly just being cautious. June will be behind me soon--but I'm grateful for the learning experience.

You mentioned to me yesterday about self-talk. I completely agree with you, and know that the things we tell ourself can be very powerful. Loveray's quote and thoughts are along the same lines today, and I know that our mind and internal beliefs have a stong impact on our success, not just in weight loss. I appreciate the reminder, as I'm continually working on my internal belief of whether or not I can conquer this! Thanks as always for your comments!

Yep, overdoing it will bite you in the ass if you're not careful!! LOL~so pacing yourself and going for consistency is a great way to go~13lb weights~woweeee!!!

I appreciate you sharing about your back pain years ago and what worked for you. I'm having terrible problems with my back that is prohibiting me from doing certain things. I guess I just have to be patient, start out slow and steady. So frustrating when you want to start off with a run instead!
