The best way out is always through. --Robert Frost

For my activity:
Short walk; Yard work

I didn't get my NTrack workout in, but other than that I did pretty well.

I'm noticing that my age group is aging faster than what it seemed my mother's (and her generation) and even my grandmother's (though I remember that through a child's memory) age group experienced. I guess it's the number of people I know who are my age with diabetes, gallbladder problems, reflux disease, sleep apnea, obesity and early heart disease, among other things.

Also there's the inability to cope without using one or another drug--alcohol, anti-depressants, anti-anxiety drugs, illegal drugs (of course) or nicotine. (I guess you could also throw caffeine in there as well.) I'm sort of contrasting my friends with our parents and it just doesn't bode well for us baby boomers. We don't seem to be a good example for the generations after us either, unfortunately. We don't seem to manage our stress well, so all the coping mechanisms go hand in hand.

We certainly don't have time for the recommended "Eat right and exercise"--haha!

Plan for today: Yard Work (done)

Eat! Exercise! Focus! Enjoy!

Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before. --Jacob A. Riis 

For my activity lately:

March 29-31
Sun-Tues: Nothing

April 1-14
Wed-Tues: Nothing but a little yardwork

I haven't weighed myself for two weeks--I'll do so again next Tuesday. I was up a half-pound on the last weigh-in. I did a few short walks in the above rundown, but it obviously wasn't anything of significance.

Oh, a big ol' shoutout to greengirl--thanks for dropping by my diary--hope all's well with you these days!

I'm committing to making an entry here every day--'til further notice!

I will mow for the first time this season--my neighbor has mowed 2 or 3 times already. I have been a lazy ass for so long (all things considered) that it's going to seem like I'm trying to raise myself from the dead (cobwebs and all) I'm afraid! Oh well, I can do it--I don't see myself being a complete slug for the following crucial weeks of getting "in shape" and then complaining at the end of Summer how bad I feel and how fat I am.

Plus I have a brand new pair of a new model of the same running shoes I've worn forever--who could ask for anything more:-) Nothing says S*P*R*I*N*G like a new pair of shoes!

If I can't find the motivation, then I'm going to at least get into a routine of some sort while I'm searching for motivation. I had a built-in motivation for a long time, and now I have to find a new motivation. Going back in time doesn't work for me. I have to put one foot in front of the other today and put the past behind me.

Other than all that, I'm going to gradually get back to basics. I'm in danger of becoming my own personal "Two Ton Tessie." It's painful, clothes don't fit like I'd like them to--I actually split my pants one day last week--my underwear sort of matched my pants and it was late in the day of a very active, very long, ultimately tiring but rewarding day--so I simply didn't give a sh*t by the time I realized how big the split had gotten--it really wasn't THAT big--nevertheless it was a rip caused by my too fat bottom being poured into too small pants!

Plan for today: Walk, NTrack, Yard Work

Eat! Exercise! Focus! Enjoy!

Thank-you.....I'm trying to get back on track! I do better when I make a point of making entries here as well :0) I'm sure you'll get back into it, you sound as if you have a plan. One day at a time is the only way! Thanks for the giggle, I was picturing you walking around with your pants split in the back....good thing your undies "almost matched" HA!!! Stick with it, I'll know you'll do great once you clear out the cobwebs :0) :0)

For my activity lately:

Mon-Thur: Nothing
Fri: Walk 10 min
Sat: Nothing

On my Tuesday weigh-in this week--no change. When I last wrote, I did all that was on my plan except for the yard work--still procrastinating on that one.

I'm planning to step it up this week. People haven't been getting me down, but I've certainly let a few things affect me negatively--it's important to me to get some distance up the proverbial hill, stay there and let nothing (especially my own head) push me back one iota toward the hole.

Though I don't want to tempt fate, usually by now with the absence of wt trng I have had a stiff neck. So since it's been so long since I used wts--I'll probably go back to a much lower dumbbell to start out with.

It's all about moving forward this week for me!

Plan for today: Walk, NTrack, Circuit Workout, Yard Work

RE: Anxiety or whatever it is ~ I have had the same feeling twice today, but milder.... I am thining I may have a pinched nerve in my neck... But, then a little TMI is "gas" after the feeling start...Then again I have been adding a packet or so of Splenda in my cereals again, plus had some S.F (splenda) syrup in my coffee yesterday afternoon ... I am thinking a little bit of everything is adding up to be a BIG thing.... If it continues, I will call the doc... I have a hyatl hernia & acid reflux, etc.... Been reading up on any/all things that may be contributers and all come back to feeling of anxiety rush...TADA!!!!!!!! That's me....

Sorry to hear that you have had some icky feeling of late too..... Stinks!, but we are still alive and kicking arent' we.... I'm excited to see where this 13 day streak (my goal for now in being good) lands me in feeling and see what the numbers look like.... Marching ON together with you in the EAT healthy, EXERCISE daily, FOCUS on the goal & ENJOY every breath we take......

Good day biscotti!

Maybe this world is another planet's hell. --Aldous Huxley 

For my activity lately:

March 2-17
Mon-Tues: Nothing--16 days total
(possibly a personal record for inactivity since keeping this diary)

March 18-21
Wed: Walk 15 min
Thur-Sat: Nothing

Well, I weighed in about a week ago and was up a pound--I haven't noted it in my weight above--I'll just do my normal Tuesday weigh-in this week. In the grand scheme of things it's not a big deal.

When I last tried to make an entry (to update my final challenge results) it kept ending up being screwed up--I still vehemently HATE the DDs text editor. But I'm going to give DD the old college try again! (The challenge was pretty much a wash--challenges are still good for me!)

Needless to say I've only haphazardly been writing down my food or logging it in Fitday.

There have been some things happening personally that cropped up coincidentally with my lazy butt, no-exercise syndrome of late. Some absolutely shocking things--people showing up who could have been dead for all I knew--that sort of thing.

As well, I went to a family funeral--actually dragged myself, though it was one of those things that I was grateful for--terrible to see the deep loss happening to family, but the upside is that when it's all said and done after all these years we can still be there for each other. And even make new connections.

The turning 50-years-old thing sort of pales in light of all the other sh*t--some of it good, some of it bittersweet--I can't really say much of it was bad sh*t--thank God for that! To me, age--even 50--is just a number anymore. I was reading something the other day that after a certain age, on average we feel about 13 years younger than we are--I'll get back to you after awhile to say how young I feel:-)

I wish my mom were here to see me as I hit 50 years old this past week! I remind myself (maybe just in time again--food & exercise choice speaking) that she was the best example to me for the "you're as young as you feel, everything in moderation" way of living (among other things). Thank you mother!

A belated happy birthday to you biscotti! And I love your quote for today :)


legcramps on 03/24/2009:
I think Aldous Huxley is a very intelligent person, and I think he's right. I have to say that I certainly don't feel 13 years younger... if anything, I feel much, much older than I am. Maybe it's a unique situation?

I'm sorry you're having a rough time right now, but you know that exercise will help to boost your mood, right? I only say that because far too many people have said it to me before - you sound a little sad and I would rather see your bright and energetic entries! Hope you have a much better week.

This week is starting out on an absolutely hellatious note. It would be easy to throw the challenge out, but I've got to stay with it--good or bad. (I'll have to come back and update the challenge results. I do know this--these little challenges are good for me!)

Not particularly scintillating, but there it is!

When I read the first sentence in your entry (not crossed out), I thought it read "this week is starting out on an absolutely hilarious note". I thought we were going to get a really funny story from you today! Ah well, we all need to have weeks like this, no? Did you walk? Did you airdyne? Have a good day today!

It's called a challenge for a reason I guess.... If it weren't for challenges in many way, everyone would just be blah blah blah in their way of living..... I don't like "blah"....... I need growth in knowledge & life experiences, but shrinkage on the waistline.......

Good Day....

I'm not sure why we are here, but I'm pretty sure it is not in order to enjoy ourselves. --Ludwig Wittgenstein

For my activity:
Fri: Nothing but a short walk
Sat: Sawing limbs about 2 hrs

So Day 1 of my 4-day (Sat-Tues) Challenge (1800 cals, <50 g fat, 20% activities) is over--out of the three I met and exceeded the activities goal. I really didn't think I'd eaten that much. If I can get through this challenge, I see this as analogous to step one in the process of turning around a huge ship.

I've been ignoring the overall picture, which I can't afford to do much longer--and still be somewhat happy with my lot in life. So even though I think I'm mindful of what/how much I'm eating, yesterday is rather sobering. In other words I can't blame my appetite on Timmy the Tapeworm this time--haha! I just have to figure out how to dial it back!

Just so you know: I'm not quitting dairy or diary--haha! I have to have real milk products in my coffee (even if it's only my one cup a day), and there probably are some who wish I'd quit "diary."

BTW, if you look on the box of regular old Hershey's Cocoa--plain old cocoa for cooking--there's a recipe for single serving hot chocolate--it's excellent! The prepackaged stuff is totally nasty, which I quit buying because of all the crap that's in it. It uses sugar, but if you'd rather use artificial or aspartame or splenda, I imagine it would work!

Just wanted to let WI3 know that I'm glad she chimed in on the underage diarist's diary--we are all entitled to our opinion. I believe it came from the heart--though many people don't believe we should voice opinions on others diaries--that every plan to lose weight is a good one and is going to work.

In the case of a superobese 13 y/o, I have no clue what would work except someone standing over her every minute of every day and making her exercise every free minute. Unless there's something haywire physically. Because at the rate she's going, it's a matter of time before diabetes, heart disease and all the other scourges of obesity show their ugly faces. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out. But having said that, I don't have a clue what would work for her--I barely have a clue what I think will work (or better said what I'm willing to do) for myself! (I have a pretty damn good idea what works, but my follow-through generally sucks!)

Obesity in a child is at least as urgent an affliction to get under control as would be cancer or strep throat or anything else. It doesn't approach normalcy in a child even if every other child in her school is obese. That's precisely what may be wrong in our society at large (no pun intended:-), parents and others are possibly inured to seeing obese children so that it appears to be okay. I don't know. I have very limited exposure to children these days. I could be very very very (extremely) out of touch with reality:-)

WI3 on 03/01/2009:
Hey there, Biscotti. Just wanted to stop by and tell you goodbye personally. I am glad you understand that what I did was from the heart as it pertains to the health of a 13 year old. As far as my other opinion about it not being a 13 year old child, that is another story-I could be wrong and if I am, hell will yawn before me and swallow me whole. Like it has the past few weeks. I think there is always a place for a couple of ladies like ourselves who dare to speak out when something isn't quite right. Thankfully, there are more of the ladies who are always sweet and kind to balance us out LOL. I don't know what to do for a 13 year old child to get him/her to lose weight. Frankly, it isn't any of my business which is why I also agree that underage persons shouldn't be on this website because none of us is qualified to tell them exactly what to do, and I'm not going to cheer on someone who is that morbidly obese and not under doctors care. How can I cheer on a child who may not be doing what they need to do in order to remain healthy, just because they are losing five pounds a week? That is scary! I don't know....I guess I am just crabby in my old age, or health...I dunno. Well, it has been a lot of fun with you and I am very very happy that I realized what a fantastic person you are. I might not have known, but I would have gone through live never knowing what an honor it was to associate with you. Good luck with all your health goals. And I wish you nothing but the very best of everything, and I truly mean it. Take care BB :)


grumpy on 03/01/2009:
I like the fact you have these short term goals. I should establish some to myself, and also longer term ones. Glad you're not giving up dairy or diary. :)

Two days have been duds! Writing down food in my little notebook still, and I almost can't contain myself for the excitement;-) Today is bound to be better!

I'm doing a 4-day (Sat-Tues) Challenge: 1800 cals, <50 g fat, 20% activities

I have to get on the ball--speaking of, I think I'll break down and get an exercise ball--there are so many websites with routines for everything. I'm sure I can find something appropriate!

I wonder how all those people who started P90X are doing on it? Seems like there were a couple of posters plus the husband of another.

Well, off to bake some oatmeal molasses cookies for Ben's fundraiser this weekend...... Have a good day!

I have taken what you have said into consideration, but some others are being completely and horribly judgemental to the state of my well being, yes my weight is ery high and it isnt healthy, but i have no heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure or anything of that type, One doctor even told me that she didn't know how to help me. I am continuing the use of DD as a PRIVATE journal for my own personal use, because it helps me keep track of hat I eat, and also it is a journal that will now be used for personal reasons as well for the fact that no one can enter into my account without my password, unlike a diary that can just be stolen.

For my activity:
Wed-Mon: Inertia

I'm down a half-pound on my weigh-in today. Mostly I have no excuse not to exercise!

I had a few opinion paragraphs, but I thought better. I may dust them off if I get a whim. Essentially I left a query for the webmaster on his diary and his reply was that yes, it's okay for a 13 y/o to be here posting. Her word is good enough for him that she has permission. So I left a comment in response to that. I decided it's none of my business since I don't own the website. I still have an opinion, but it really doesn't mean squat. I'll spare anyone who still reads me. There's no sense in beating a dead horse.

Except for this: Awhile ago I remarked at how DDs had changed for me--though that was mostly because of long-gone posters that I've missed over the years. I guess the webmaster allowing 13 y/olds to post kinda puts the last nail in the coffin of that long-dying DDs that I knew so well for so many years:-) And it's still a free website, so he needs anyone he can to access it, click on ads--however it makes revenue and even if a 13 y/o is doing that, it's still revenue!

Oh well.

So I must get down to brass tacks. I would describe today's weather as hot (and gorgeous)--I took a mid-length walk. I drank three cups of coffee the other day--no tea that day--way out of my plan, and it fu*ked up my sleep in a big way. One cup of tea and one cup of coffee per day is ideal. Back to counting calories tomorrow is the plan.

I'm going to do a daily early walk and also try to incorporate an early indoor workout of less than an hour--I can do that! If not, I'm  sunk--yet again. I'm tired of pulling myself out of the same old hole. I guess the fact that I haven't continually been sinking myself in deeper each subsequent time is a feather in my cap, but my haphazardness is wearing thin!

Plan for today: Walk 

Eat! Exercise! Focus! Enjoy!

I'll trade ya... You come to my house and get them in shape around here & I'll do yer walking, etc...... I wouldn't wish my troubles on anyone truthfully...

Anyway, I have been hoping that maybe absence will make one a bit out of the routine of DD while they are on vacation, as of Sunday..... Shall see..... I am a believer of not allowing ANY under 18 on any website such as DD..Due tot he facts as I stated before that a "kid" is going to tell you what you want to hear, especially if it is website realted.... No verification isn't a good practice... I guess we can't watch out for everybody we see headed the wrong direction... I used to be one that wanted to save the world, but realized I'm just beating myself up.. Can't anymore.... Voice concerns and let it go....

Have a good evening!


legcramps on 02/26/2009:
The coffee I drank last night really messed up my sleep, too. I was all for it at the time, and will most probably do the same thing again in the future - to me, it's all about the immediate pleasure, so i'll suffer the consequences of too late nights and too early mornings just so that I can have a cup of coffee every now and then. Whatd'ya do?!

Have you read your bio page lately? I just skimmed through it, and its very motivating. Maybe you should re-read it too. Have a great day today!

but honestly, don't we try to give helpful advice to all who post on here?? i agree actually, with the webmaster, and i do believe it's ok for 13 year olds to post here. but we should try to give them good advice. and good advice may not even be what i'm eating or i'm posting. lol. but anyone should be able to post here. on the contrary, the majority of posters are adults and that's a good thing. bc we really do help each other and give good advice.

(Challenges::Water::Logging Food::Fitday)
Weight: 165.0

Start: 189 (June 2001)
Low: 150 (Nov 2006)
Current BMI=28.3 My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8 (133)


For my activity: NordicTrack 43 min/4.4 mi

No walk, no Airdyne yesterday.

Today will be my latest attempt to recommit. Exercise really isn't my problem except for the odd day I balk or just don't have time to do everything I've planned. So it's down to restricting my calories, which I hate to do, but the writing is on the wall--my belly says so! And of course I'm not talking about restricting abnormally here--it's simple math--intake and output--a few hundred fewer calories per day. Really not that much to ask, though follow-through is the key!

We talk about lifestyle change alot--I need one--bad! I guess mine would be to not give myself permission to eat all the things I want all the time, but to allow myself some of the things only some of the time, not to mention portion control.

Plan for today: Walk, NTrack, Circuit Workout

Eat! Exercise! Focus! Enjoy!

Hello,they say all things in moderation which is'nt easy is it who can stop at eating 2 choco biscuits, not me if i'm in a bad frame of mind.I'm all or nothing,as if i get the taste for something there's no stopping me.Stay strong,Julie

Ha ~ Portion control... I control my portions just fine (sticking to serving size)...I just eat too much of too many things to make it lucrative.... Changing that!

Re: Food choices ~ I was just flashing back to a few comments back in the day of "staple foods" of yogurt/honey, turkey patty, boca, etc as being something being senn EVERY DAY & if I ate something different, it was commented that someone was used to seeing those staples...... I'm one for "stability" and as long as it still tastes good I have to stick with it to make it work for me... I quit doing that and I have to stop letting stuff like that effect my plan... Stop worrying about other people and go back to what works FOR ME... My feelings weren't hurt, just let it effect me for some reason.. NO MORE! After all, this is MY plan and as long as I'm healthy (not taking pills, etc ;O) to "lose" weight) in my eating/exercising...I'll be just fine...

We are on the right road... How fast do we want to reach our destination?... To be told in our actions!

LOL ~ Hand over those C.C. SCONES....NOW!

There is always hope - thanks for your comments. I am with you - I never want anyone to leave this site, I find alot of encouragement here and it helps keep me focused in a healthy way. I share the pain of my fellow DD'ers when they are struggling and I know vice versa. The problem is when it is the ED speaking it sounds so much like our own voice. One must learn to recognize it for what it is remember it's agenda is steal, kill and destroy. It is not our friend. We are not our EDs - we are so much more and we can only realize our potential when we are free of the ED. Live free! Let's pray for our fellow DD'ers and keep ourselves accountable.

i agree completely!!!, and i know the exact feeling of counting calories, geesh, but i am sticking with it (barely) and think that if you want to bad enough you can too!


Maria* on 02/18/2009:
You're right...it is ALL ABOUT DISCIPLINE!!!!! (Which, btw, is NOT FUN!) We want to be able to eat 'pretty much' what we want and still get to goal....but...usually doesn't work that way, hehehe!!! Not even easy to 'maintain' that way! You know what???? It is ALSO....ALL ABOUT COMMITMENT... seems every time I get 'committed' here lately, I get STRESSED and GIVE IN!!!!!

Hope you're having a wonderful evening!!! (Smile!)


thinnside40 on 02/18/2009:
I AM NOT trying to be funny here, BUT....Do you make biscotti too?..Everytime I see any at the espresso shop or adcertised @ Costco, I think of you... I never have had it, but know it probably sure is tasty dipped in cocoa or coffee.....


haha_love2laugh on 02/18/2009:
Thanks for the input, but my registered physician was the one who told me i should eat 1600-2000 calories a day and i try to eat that amount, and sometimes i'm low, and sometimes i'm high.

And i understand that you do not feel comfortable supporting me, but would like to know how you think that it is any different for me to need to set goals/ get support from somewhere OTHER than my family, i am doing it healthfully, and have decided against anorexia or bulimia, and i'm trying hard to make myself HEALTHY, i dont care how skinny i am, i want to be able to run a mile, on land, in under 15 minutes like i run it now, i want to change my life, and i want you to know that i will keep doing what i am doing with or without your support.

Cheers to getting back on track, cheers to getting through the stifling fog of not being motivated enough to get off the couch, cheers to admitting what the problem is and working on solving it. Cheers to you!! Have a great day today.


omahagrl on 02/19/2009:
I agree 100% on portion control as that is my greatest challenge. See Jimmy Johns incident :-) I also think if food tasty bad it would be easier but I love the taste of a lot of food. Have a great day!!!!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/21/2009:
yeah...there's no way i'm happier at this weight. i'd give anything to be 112 right now. i weighed around that # for a long time before throwing the towel in. :(


Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/22/2009:
cellniques are a bit too expensive anyways...but they came to my house even though i thought i would have to call if i wanted to order them again...apparently they might come every month! ha. i think i may have to call them...but you'll probably be seeing them again on my menu. but NOT everyday. and only ONE per day i do decide to drink one. maybe once a week...that would be a better plan. good thing they don't need refrigeration until opening.


Maria* on 02/23/2009:
I hope you're having a good Monday! I THANK YOU for the info. Never think that what you tell me is not appreciated, cause it very much is appreciated. Thank you for your support in your comments to me. Big smile to you!!!
