Weight: 205.0

Wow I haven't been very good with keeping up this thing. I was surprised when I actually lost a few pounds. I really haven't been "trying." Although I really haven't been eating anything bad either. I've since I started this whole thing realized that it's much better for me, to let myself have freedom than to not have it. If I allow myself to eat the things I want, but in moderation, i'm much less likely to go off. this is nice.

Progress as of today: 16 lbs lost so far, only 75 lbs to go!

I was surprised (in a good way!) when I looked at the scale this morning. It's nice to have weight keep coming off... (slow as it may seem). I've had a horrible allergy attack this week so i haven't been feeling 100%, plus the kids are back from their WASL break so back to teaching. I've recently discovered these drinks that i'm addicted to...dry sodas. 70 calories per bottle and they taste....beautiful for lack of a better word. Totally satisfying. I'm drinking a lavendar one right now (it's weird! you wouldn't think it'd taste good but it does! it reminds me of what a wedding dress would taste like...if it had taste...yeah...). Im attempting to read over 600 pages before thursday so i really outta get on that. One more midterm on friday and I'm set! It's mine and my boyfriend's 3rd anniversary on saturday so we've rented this really nice hotel honeymoon suite and are gonna just spend the weekend relaxing and being tourists in our own city. I'm looking forward to that. Anyway have a nice night yall.

My weight seems to be coming off slowly, but at least it's coming off surely. I'm always in a hurry to get stuff done and I've come to realize that weight loss can't be one of those things you hurry through. It's a lifestyle change and that takes effort...and time. It's been an interesting journey thus far. It's really neat to see the way my body has responded the positive changes i've made and how much better I feel. I didn't even really know I was feeling poorly until I started to feel good! I've learned that milk makes me sick...(I didn't even know! that's how crappy I felt all the time before!!) Anyway, i've kinda gotten to the point where the stuff I used to eat doesn't even look good to me anymore. I know how it will make me feel and so I opt out. It's cinco de mayo so I might have a margarita, but it ends there. Anyway happy cinco de mayo everyone!! Breakfast: half of half a low fat burrito from two nights ago Lunch: the other half of the half a burrito from two nights ago. Snack: one of those weight watchers snack cakes (about the size of half a post it note) Dinner:....?

I keep telling myself that I didn't put it on overnight and I won't take it off overnight. I totally understand how you feel. Sounds like you're doing great. Keep it up. Happy Cinco de Mayo, have fun.


oj'sgirl on 05/05/2006:
Hey I know what you mean about milk making you feel sick. I have come to that conclusion too. I still have a glass every now and then. Trying to do more soy milk. Plus I have learned meat upsets my stomach too. And when you realize what's making you feel sick it does start to sound yucky to you.I am in the same boat. Well keep up the good work. It may take a while to get the weight off. But at least you are learning what you can eat and are feeling better. And that will help you want to keep it off. Happy Cinco de Mayo

Yes, sometimes it seems easy to get impatient...but with discipline and exercise, we see results!

It's been a very busy couple of days. I just finished taking my econ midterm--it was soooo hard!!! A couple people started hyperventilating when they got it..I did my best to keep it together...gave it my best shot. Hopefully it turned out alright! Anyway I haven't been sleeping much at all lately...4 hours a night at the most. I went to bed at 8 tonight to try and get a full 10 hours of sleep (to try and make up for some of the sleep that i've lost) but alas I woke up at 10:30 and can't go back to bed. I've never really been a "good sleeper" but this has been crazy! I took a half a sleeping pill about an hour ago and I hope that it kicks in soon! Anyway I'm going to attempt to keep track of what I ate during the day (I have a feeling it's a lot more than I think). Breakfast: Nothing Lunch: 1 lowfat chicken sandwich from starbucks and 1 tall green tea frap. Dinner: I had three pieces of realtively "low fat" pizza that I made using thawed dough and part skim mozarella. I really need to start keeping track of calories too. Today wasn't really a typical day for me. I'm trying to avoid grocery shopping until sunday and i've been just busy nonstop. Tomorrow will be much slower though. Anway have a nice night you guys!

Hope you were able to get some sleep, I don't have this problem and that is fortunately or unfortunately. I can sleep at the drop of a hat and at all hours of the day and night...this is the curse of my family, lol.

The Green tea frap sounds delicious, this is one of my favorite drinks, green tea from Sobe.

Have a great weekend

Midterms are here. Blah. The one I had yesterday ended up being really sneaky and despite my best efforts studying, I think i did pretty poorly. One more tomorrow and then no more until May 11th and 12th. I must say that i'm eating much healthier than i ever have during midterms before. I skipped class today to study (ironic huh) and think i'm going to go for a walk later to clear my head. I won't have time to make dinner tonight so we're gonna go get mexican, i should be able to keep it pretty healthy though.

I made wheat pasta and meatballs for dinner last night using half lean ground beef and half of those morning star crumbles. I added a packet of splenda to give the sauce a sweet garlicy taste. It ended up being reaaallly good. We're kinda out of food at my house at this point though so I've kinda just been eating all the healthy stuff that's leftover (usually the healthy stuff that I'd been avoiding cause it was kinda ucky). I found an ancient lean cuisine in the freezer and am having that for lunch right now. I also discovered that low fat garlic crutons satisfy my craving for garlic bread...and with a small fraction of the carbs and fat!! So that's way cool. Anyway have a nice day guys!

This was a very bad food weekend for me (gosh it seems like I say that every weekend!!) My dad came in to town and we ended up touring the local breweries and just havin a good old time. I stuck with light beer the majority of the time but probably should have opted for water. I'm not too hung up on it because we ended up having a lot of fun..and he's getting kindof at the age where i'm not sure how many more fun times like that we'll get to have. So i'm grateful.

I probably could have avoided some of the bad food I ate too, but i've also decided not to get too hung up on that either. I've been good for the most part and I think that if I don't deviate every once in a while, i'll get burned out.

On the upside though, I did end up going for a run last night. I sure have missed running. It's odd how different running feels with extra weight on you. I ran track and was a pretty established runner in high school so it's weird to be the out of shape one running. It felt amazing though. When I woke up this morning, i felt so energized and happy that I went for a nice walk (the one I usually do at night). That felt pretty good too. So I think that the boyfriend and I might start working out tonight...three nights a week. I'm excited about that too.

Annnyywayyy i'm making low fat chicken nuggests and cheesy broccoli pasta tonight for dinner. I've never made the pasta before but hopefully it will turn out well (i'm using whole wheat). So have a nice night you guys and thanks for the smoking advise!!!

Your cheesy broccoli pasta sounds real delish...recipe????

Good for you on your exercise!

Good that you don't dwell on bad choices, just don't keep making them either ;)

So are you trying to housebreak your bunny? I've heard of people doing this, but then I guess you have to worry about them chewing on the woodwork.

I appreciate your comment and I see you're getting quite a bit of running in--Cheers to you! I look forward to following your progress.

Have a great day and keep up the good work!


smiley2 on 05/03/2006:
Hi there, thanks for the comment.

I know what you mean by not knowing how much fun times you and your dad is still going to have. Im glad you could spend some quality time with him. In my case my dad and i never really had the best relationship, because he wasnt really there for me when i grew up, now his in his 60's and its kinda sad, because now we can have fun together, but its almost too late.

Good luck with your mid terms as well!

Alright, I've made a command decision: no more low fat cheetos for me. They're simply too good , and I think I end up eating enough of them to outweigh the relatively low fat/calorie part. I also had a burger last night. Crap. I think i'm going to go on a super long walk today (maybe two) so that I feel at least a little bit better. Undo some of the damage. Anyway i'll wrote more later. I have to go check out a new house.

Brian's girl on 04/28/2006:
Isn't that always the case, when something seems to be too good to be true then we overdo it and it turns out to be a bad thing. Good decision to eliminate those, might be they are a trigger food for you as well. I have alot of trigger foods so I just stay away from them.

Have a great weekend

Well today was CRAZY (gosh do I say that every day?!) Just one of those days where a ton of little things go wrong and towards the end of the day you just end up feeling overwhelmed. My dad is coming up from Portland (where I went to hs) to visit and to go to conferences and he'll want to go out to dinner. It kinda throws my whole routine out the window...hopefully i'll be able to stay on track. One awesome thing though, was that i'd just washed my jeans (i'm down to one pair that fit now! Yikes! I better not gain any more weight or i'm going naked!!) and I took them out of the hamper and prepared to do my duck walk (yes I have a duck walk where I squat and waddle like a duck in my jeans to stretch them out). Well I got all ready to do that but when I put the jeans on, it was like they'd already been stretched. That was nice. I'm not quite able to fit in to my old "fat" pants yet but i'll get there. I'm very much looking forward to a nice walk tonight and some well deserved sleep.

The duck walk, that quacked me up. Do you mean your dad is from Portland Oregon? This is where I live, could be Portland Maine though...this is where my sister lives. If it is Portland OR, which high school did you go to?

Today went pretty well thus far. I had to be in some psychology experiment so I got home pretty late. Anyway this leaves me no time to make dinner. Soooo I've decided to go get teriyaki chicken with the boyfriend since i've really been craving it and it's not that bad for you. The nearest place (or at least the nearest GOOD place) is about a mile and a half away (all up hill) so I've decided that we'll walk there to get dinner and back. That'll be really nice.

Also, i've been trying to get the boyfriend to quit smoking (he really wants to) but i'm not really sure where to start. If anyone has any suggestions they'd be greatly appreciated. Have a nice night yall!

I love chicken! Don't know if I've ever tried teriyaki though. But I love barbequed chicken, fried chicken and baked chicken...also chicken stew!


Brian's girl on 04/26/2006:
Hi,

I did not remember or realize that you are in Seattle, I am in Portland...Oregon. Anyway, just caught up with your diary and sounds like things are going both ways for you , good and some not so good.

Sounds like you are experiencing the ups and downs of a relationship but have come through ok. Unfortunately I do not have any words of wisdom for him to help him quit smoking. I smoked for three years in high school but was able to just stop cold turkey, not sure why. My first ex smoked and he still does, trying to get him to stop was a nightmare.

I guess the best advice I could give him is the same for losing weight, he has got to want it so much that it outweighs his wanting to smoke. I have also heard that people who have a pack around helps, why? because they do not panic and think...oh my god, I don't have any cigarettes here at all and then one thing leads to another and they end up smoking again. Knowing that there is a pack around and that they could have one if needed helps to ease the anxiety and most times they don't but just knowing they are nearby is enough. Strange I know but it must work for some people.

I know that this works for me and being raw, if I have nothing in the house that I can eat I go nuts, no pun intended. If there are things in the house that I can eat then I am more calmer and I do not have a tendency to binge on whatever.

Your weight loss is going great, it is always exciting to see someone succeed that in turn gives them confidence in themselves.

Check you out later

Sandra


kitten76 on 04/27/2006:
I love anything that has teryaki sauce on it. Has your boyfriend ever thought about hypnosis. I have a friend who quit smoking that way. She has been smoke free for 4 years now. Anyway hope that helps and keep up the good work.


Andoria on 04/27/2006:
I recently quit smoking for myself and my boyfriend. The way I did it was to tag smoking with negative connotations: having to stay outside when the fun is inside, having to stay in the miserable cold, inconvenience of smoking while it is raining, needing to freshen breath by brushing teeth after every cigarette or mints and gum(when w/ bf), having to wash hands after every smoke to get the stinch off, the stinch of cig-smoked clothes, etc. Not only that, it decreased my energy and made me avoid physical fun! I reminded myself that this is simply not cool. What about living life(running around like an idiot for no apparent reason save laughing, dancing, playing in the rain, swimming on the beach, horseplay and other activities w/ significant other) instead of watching it pass by? I do not know if it will help at all. Everyone, of course, is different, but I do hope that it helps.

So this has probably been the roughest week of my life thus far...stuff just keeps going wrong! and going from bad to worse!! I'm really hoping it will all turn around. Anyway i haven't been eating as well as i'd like. I've been eating healthy but my portions are pretty bad. Today has been different though. I've realized that I just seem to feel better when I eat less..satisfied not stuffed. I'm eating leftover mexican chicken stew and a piece of lowfat cornbread from last night. Tonight i'm gonna try and make lowfat pork and tomato skewers over parmesam cous cous. Hopefully that will go well. Anyway i hope all of you are doing well--it's BEAUTIFUL here in Seattle!
