(no regular pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm)
Weight: 233.0

I couldn't wait for the first of the month to weigh myself, so I weighed myself today. No pop and about 100 ounces of water today. Cereal for breakfast. I had 1/2 a doughnut at church.....it was really calling my name. Lunch out consisted of steak, shrimp, potato skins, and a salad. I had a handful of nuts at around 9pm.

Didn't weigh myself today. No snacks, nothing after 7pm. Some salami and a piece of ochra for breakfast. I had 2 hamburgers, some potato chips, fruit salad, and about 20 ounces of pop for lunch. Dinner was a tossed salad and a couple of pancakes. I know that's a wierd combination, it's just what was there at the time. For the first time in a few days, I actually got 100 ounces of water in today.

Didn't weigh myself. No pop, no snacks, only about 70 ounces of water today. Cereal for breakfast. Lunch was soup and salad bar. Healthy Choices frozen meal for dinner. I had a craving for a snack later at night and ended up eating a couple ounces of cheddar cheese and a couple slices of salami.

ADDED IN RESPONSE TO JELLYBELLY'S COMMENT: Yes, I'm eating plenty. I've just gone back to making my lunch meal the "heavy" meal of the day. I'm guessing the soup and salad bar was somewhere in the 1,000 calorie range, which would bring my daily caloric intake to somewhere around 1,800 calories.

What I ate at the soup and salad bar was: 1 large stacked plate full of lettuce and every imagineable type of topping including blue cheese dressing, hard boiled eggs, bacon bits, 3 different types of shredded / crumbled cheeses, cottage cheese, potato salad, etc. Then I had a large bowl of clam chowder with crackers and scones. Actually now that I'm thinking about it, it may well have been more than 1,000 calories......I was pretty stuffed.

Good job today!..keep that up and you will be reaching your goal in no time..=0)


JellyBelly2 on 01/24/2004:
Are you sure you're eating enough? I'd pass out if that's all I ate. Just concerned. Maybe the salad bar had a lot on it?

No pop today. Cereal for breakfast. Lunch was a baguette, sausage, potatoes, and sauerkraut. I ate a pear for a snack. Healthy Choice frozen meal for dinner. I technically tasted a small piece of turkey sausage after 7pm. About 80 ounces of water intake today.

Thanks...I like that idea no eating after a certain time...thats usually when I eat the wrong foods...I'll try that no eating after 7:30p...its a new habit thats for sure...I know what you mean about eating just to keep awake...sometimes the road can be mesmerizing...I found ice chips and apples cut up helped me...the apple takes a while to chew and takes a little bit longer to digest...in my own mind it kept me fuller longer...and the ice chips helped me to stay awake and it also lessened the pit stops...lol

Didn't weigh myself today. No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm, and 100+ ounces of water.

I was gone on vacation last week and did alright for a few days and then cheated for a few days. Then I had 1 day I had to drive 20+ hours in the car all by myself and I gorged myself with every type of food and pop imagineable, just to try to stay awake.

I'm now back and on my diet again.

Didn't weigh myself, no pop, no snacks, nothing after 7:30pm. Cereal for breakfast. Lunch was cheeseburger, cheese fries, and a piece of pizza. Pizza Hut for dinner, which was late. I went skiing all day, so I got plenty of exercise in.

MsMotorcity on 01/09/2004:
I was just wondering something. If you want to lose weight and be healthy why are you eating Pizza Hut, Cheeseburgers, cheese fries, etc...? Eating like you do, before you know it, you'll put on another 50-100 pounds. I'm not trying to be mean but I am trying to help you... Just cutting out pop isn't going to help you the way you consume food.

Ms Motorcity,

I lost 55 lbs in the first 3 or 4 months of 2003, and started by just cutting out the pop, snacks, and eating after 7pm. My pop, candy, snack intake is awfully high when I'm not dieting. Just for example, I average about 72 ounces of pop per day and at least 1 chocolate bar. I do that every day in addition to eating all of the junk I do at meals. Just by cutting out the pop and snacks for me means 1,000 less calories EVERY DAY! That's 7,000 calories less that I intake every week. Just doing that allowed me to lose over 50 pounds last year. (Of course I gained most of it back when I returned to my 6+ cans of pop per day.)

I've tried changing all of my eating habits at once, eating healthy, cutting out the pop, exercising, etc. It seems like my body goes into starvation mode and I don't tend to lose much weight at all.

I realize that just cutting out pop and snacks won't work well for most people, but I'm overly excessive in my pop / snack intake, so it does work for me.

I didn't weigh myself today. I'm going to try to limit my weigh-ins to the 1st and 15th of every month. Hopefully this will help to control any of the normal mood swings that accompany the day to day ups and downs.

No pop, no snacks, nothing after 7pm. Just over 100 ounces of water intake today. Cereal for breakfast. Quiznos for lunch - small sandwich, cup of clam chowder, and bag of chips. Dinner was a double helping of sloppy joes with shredded cheddar on top.

Dropping the pop again has been pretty easy so far, probably because of the larger than average intake of water.
