(portion control with calorie counting)
Weight: 186.5

YAY!!! The weekend is here!!! Had a pretty good day at work today. We go through a quiet time for a few weeks. We are in between the exam periods, so there are less students in the library, and until the next assignment due dates we have a steady turnover. We are mad busy again just before assignments are due in, and then in May its exam time again and we are packed to the roof!!

This week there has been a glimmer of light coming into the sky on my way into work. I cant wait for it to get lighter earlier. I hate coming to work in the dark.

I was a good friend today to one of my colleagues who I am very friendly with. She needed to get some problems off her chest, and get some reassurance, and I was able to be there for her so I felt pretty good about myself. So I will give myself 10 challenge points for that today.

We have had some good news in the family this week. One of my nieces is having a baby. I am jealous (not of my niece! Of my sister having anothet grandchild!!) . My own eldest son has been married over four years without even the hint of the pitter-patter of tiny feet. I have four step grandchildren, but they have their own grandmas, and call me Anne, not grandma!! In fact we had the youngest one over today, as it is the school holidays, and her mum had to work. I think I will end up being a real traditional old granny!! Anyway, enough of the gossip and down to business!!

Challenge points for today as follows

Calories 2 points

water 2 points

No binging 10 points

Positive commenting 10 points

Positive about myself 10 points

34 points in all. One day soon I will get my act together and get full points LOL. Have a great weekend folks :0)

Progress as of today: 40.5 lbs lost so far, only 36.5 lbs to go!

Justine6Robert3 on 02/16/2007:
I wish I understood how the point system works. There seems to be so many of you using it. My girlfriend Tracy just started to do weight watchers wich is also by points. I'm going to her place tonight, maybe I'll check out her book so I know about this point system!!

Congradulations on the baby news, I'll cross my fingers that you become a Grandma soon!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/16/2007:
what a great day! Its good that you enjoy the company of your family, especially the kids!


WorkingIt2 on 02/16/2007:
YAY thank goodness for weekends! Congrats on the baby! My mom and dad have 7 grandkids and they want someone to have more lol.

Great job on being there for your coworker! I always think that sometimes, we may be the only person in someone's day who gives them a kind word or a shoulder to lean on. It really does make a difference, so BIG KUDO's to you!! Take care =)


Moody on 02/17/2007:
It's beginning to stay lighter later here!!! I noticed last night it was after 6 and the sun was still out!! Freezing cold, mind you, but at least there was a sign of spring! Take Care!!!


hollybelle on 02/17/2007:
Ditto - Yay for weekends! Good POINTS!


borntocry on 02/18/2007:
I love how you have introduced all the Americans to Pulp, haha!

My parents are also quite anxious for grandkids, and are always dropping hints to me about it! I don't want to worry them by telling them that I have been trying for a while now. On the other hand, I'm also sometimes tempted to just tell them that I don't want any kids, so that they'll stop asking me about it!

Thanks for your comments and commiserations yesterday, when I stupidly lost my blog before I had time to post it. i will be more careful tonight. I may as well update my challenge points now, even tho it is only 7pm as I have already slightly topped my calorie total. Ive not been binging or anything, just slightly miscalculated and went over.

Challenge points are as follows:-

calories 0

water 2 points

exercise 2 points

no binging 10 points

From next week i will be working an extra 4 hours a week taking my working hours up to 34 hrs per week. I'm hoping this wont change my eating pattern too much. I will have to wait and see what happens. Good luck with the rest of the week girls :)

Progress as of today: 40.5 lbs lost so far, only 36.5 lbs to go!

WorkingIt2 on 02/15/2007:
Ohhh I've had those days where I miscalculate something and then I have to shave some calories off elsewhere lol...that is such a drag! Have a great evening =)


weightlossyoyo on 02/15/2007:
Way to go on not binging!


mylifechanges on 02/15/2007:
Aw..it looks like you've really had a great day today! I understand the frustration in miscalculating calories..I'm sure we've all been guilty of that at one time or another! Keep up the good work, you're doing great! :)


borntocry on 02/16/2007:
Hi greengirl,

I also had a "wild obsession" with Jarvis which started when I first discovered him at age 16. I have loads of autographed pictures and promos and stuff. I went to lots of concerts and even got to shake hands with him once backstage! That was cool. But the best was when I went to watch him DJ at a jazz club in London. I got to light a cigarette for him! And he said, "Thanks!" How cool is that?!

I know he lives in Paris now and I'm always secretly hoping I'll run into him some day (hopefully not when I'm looking all messy and horrible from running) and I'll be singing some Pulp song to myself as I go by (not that he would care, haha!).

Of course I probably shouldn't be obsessing about Jarvis any more now that I am married, especially as my husband is also a fan and can do a brilliant Jarvis impression, being the same height and build and having a beautiful deep singing voice just like Jarvis!


sandrella on 02/16/2007:
I'm the same way...I'll overlook something in minute! It sounds like you had a good day though! At least the exra hours will bring in more $$! I hope it doesn't stress you out though! Have a great weekend! :)


biscottibody59 on 02/16/2007:
I feel all left out of this "Jarvis" business--I did a google image search though and he doesn't appear to be anything to write home about--with all due respect to BTC! No accounting for taste I say, especially in my case--hahaha!

Hope you do well with your change in hours--just try to anticipate if you can!

Have a good weekend!

Damn and blast!!! I just wrote a long and very informative entry about the ins and outs of my day today and then clicked on cancel instead of update (I think) and the b****y think disappeared into the ether!!

Heres the potted version

Flowers from hubby, nice weather, watching football (soccer) on telly to keep hubby company, got some flowers in bloom in garden, challenge points 34 (whoopee!!). Today sun is out, sky is blue. HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

ps. thanks for the great responses yesterday!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/14/2007:

FortySomething on 02/14/2007:
Hi...leaving you another thank you for your welcome....i just realized that I left it on the Feb 11th entry....I hope I didn't do that with all my posts, also I deleted one of my entires too. LOL...have to laugh at myself...WOW, congrats on your weight loss, what na inspiration !!! Happy Valentine's Dat


leeumom on 02/14/2007:
So I'm not the only one that does that. I spent the other day with the same success. You did better then I---I gave up! But, today I rewrote what I think I said and did better. You go girl. I read your chart and you are doing great! I'll be glad when you start to see my chart go down. Happy Valentines Day.


sharklover on 02/14/2007:
I hate it when that happens!!

What a great day it sounds like you had! :-)


WorkingIt2 on 02/14/2007:
ARGH hate it when that happens LOL. I am so happy to read that you had a much better day and that you got the flowers from your hubby and had a great sunny day!

One would think you can eat MORE as you get smaller and more physically fit..but nooooooooo LOL. That's ok...I don't mind having smaller calorie days, I actually feel better when I'm not on the high end of the calories. *sigh* one foot in front of the other lol

(((((((((Hug)))))))) TY for being so sweet! Happy Valentine's Day!


borntocry on 02/15/2007:
Oh my God - Jarvis?! Did somebody mention Jarvis Cocker? I had the biggest crush on him!!! And then I married someone who looks just like him, hehe...

Thanks to everyone for your continued support. It really keeps me going. I have had a pretty good day today and managed to keep in my calorie total. I have moved my daily hungry time from the late evening (when it is dangerous as I tend to graze in the fridge) to the late afternoon when I can cope with it better by distracting myself with exercise. This has got to help (I hope)

Challenge points for today are as follows

heavybaby on 02/13/2007:
Wow, you are doing great. You have a steady loss going and are keeping up with it for 6 months. I've only been trying since jan. 15. I know I have at least 6 months or more to go. I hope I can stay steady like you. heavybaby


WorkingIt2 on 02/13/2007:
Half a pound is still very, very good. And now that you've been losing the weight it is natural that your body is going to start slowing down on giving it up. I went through that when I hit the 50lb mark..and now I am stuck in a holding pattern as well. Which is VERY frustrating! I have decided that I am going to make my snack what I eat when I get in the house from work....do my workout and then eat my supper. Change it up a little and I am going to work very hard on keeping those calories below 1400/1500. Plus I increased the quality of my cardio.


sandrella on 02/13/2007:
I'm glad you had a good day and at least now you've found a stragety sp? for combating the late night munchies! :) I know you can do it...40.5lbs is nothing to laugh at! Hope tomorrow goes as well for you!


sharklover on 02/13/2007:
Late evening was my trouble time too. Its a little better now that I have gotten used to just not touching anything more after dinner.

Glad to hear you had a good day!

You're more than halfway to your goal! That must feel amazing! You should really take a moment to look back at how far you've come, and congradulate yourself!


biscottibody59 on 02/13/2007:
You are doing such an excellent job with your program--make sure you pat yourself on the back at least once a day! Here's to your continued success!

Have a good Wednesday!


Justine6Robert3 on 02/13/2007:
The late night munchies are also my weakness!! I seem to be able to resist the temptation better during the day. Let me know if your plan works to decrease the late night munchie attacks!

My husband got me into the Red Hot Chilli Peppers when we started dating (13 yrs ago!) I heard they were a decent live performance. By the sounds of it you enjoyed James Brown more, that must have been something to see!

I haven't heard of Jarvis Cocker or his band "Pulp". What type of music does he sing? I love all kinds of music, I grew up with alot of different types of music. There was always music on at our house when I was growing up. I find I'm the same way also. I have it on when I clean, cook, if I'm feeling grumpy (to lift my mood!) and ofcourse to dance, preferably in my house with nobody watching to see what I nerd I am, unless ofcourse I've had a few drinks and then I don't care if everyone see's I'm a goofball! Ofcourse its also great to get me through my work-outs!

Your doing great, you have come a long way in 6 months! I hope I can stick with it for the long haul!


mcwoo40 on 02/14/2007:
hi,don't even go in the kitchen get your hubby to make you a drink .also i throw unwanted food that the kids have left straight in the bin to stop temptation.Keep up the good work,Julie


moody on 02/14/2007:
I used to graze at night too...its a hard habit to break but it can be done..sounds like you have a great plan in mind!!

And look at how far you have come..I just looked at your weight loss bar and you've lost over 40 pounds!! Thats Fantastic!! Be proud of yourself!!


sweetpea1977 on 02/14/2007:
Hey Girl,

I just got caught up on all your entries. First off, thanks for the compliment on my haircut. I gotta kick out of you mentioning it in your diary when you were short on time when you saw the pic. :o)

Secondly, Im so proud of you getting involved in a race. You are going to feel great when you complete it.

Thirdly, congratulations on wearing that fitted shirt and liking the way it looked. Doesnt that make you feel amazing?!

And lastly, congrats on still being able to lose a half pound after your night out with the girls. Thats quite a feat!

Keep up the good work. You're doing GREAT!!

I'm afraid I am only down half a pound this week. This is hardly surprising after my fall from grace on Wednesday night (naughty friends for tempting me!!). Actually I'm a bit disappointed because yesterday morning (Sunday) my scales read 185.5 and I didnt have a bad day so what happened??? Its just one of those glitches that happens !! However I'm still pleased to be going in a downward direction :)

A 1/2 lb. is still a loss! :) Congratulations! You've come so far!


Justine6Robert3 on 02/12/2007:
I'm also planning to go out with a couple of girls next week. There likely won't be much drinking though because we usually just do dinner and a movie through the week.

I am going out to dinner on Friday with my hubby and my friend Tracy and her hubby. This will be my first time going out to dinner since starting to count my calories so I hope I can behave!! This is my best friend however and we haven't gotten together in a while so I'm sure we will have to indulge in at least a couple drinks!! We are getting sitters for the kids so that makes it an official "adult outing" wich will be nice.

My hubby and I would love to see U2 in concert, I hear they are great in concert! How was the show?! My husband definetly won't be coming with me to see Gwen Stefani, not his taste! So I will be bringing a girlfriend. Its nice that your kids can go to the University for more reasonable priced tickets. We just had a new Theatre open in our city (Brampton) called "The Rose Theatre". It just opened at the end of 2006 but it has had some decent shows like "Cats", "The Nutcracker" and some decent comedians and singers etc. I went in November to see "Chantal Kreviazuk". I don't know if she is that well known in the U.K. or the U.S. She is a Canadian singer. I love her, she is an amazing song writer and her voice is so powerful and beautiful. She also play's the piano. She is married to the lead singer of "Our Lady Peace", Raine Maida, and she has co-written songs for artist like Gwen Stefani, Avril Lavigne & Kelly Clarkson (just to name a few)

Anyway, the theatre is beautiful and its built very similiar to the downtown Toronto theatres with lounges and bars on every level (bonus!!) My daughter will get to do her dance recital there on March 25th.

Half a pound is still a loss, don't be so hard on yourself!! Your already down 40 lbs thats a great accomplishment, not to mention its past the half way mark on your goal!! Keep it up, your doing fantastic! Everybody need's a night out to let their hair down occasionally, right?!!


mylifechanges on 02/12/2007:
It's still half a pound less than you weighed last week! You can't beat yourself up over that! Keep your head up high and move on! And look how far you've come- you've ALREADY lost more weight than you've got left to lose! That must feel fantastic! :)

And thanks for all of your comments on my site- I always look forward to hearing from you! :) Take care!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/12/2007:
make up for only 1/2 a lb this week! you'll be ok! at least it's not up!


Moody on 02/12/2007:
I know what you mean about "glitches"!! I am weighing myself more often than I used to but I don't freak out anymore about a half pound here or there..so many things cause our weight to fluctuate..Don't feel badly..You're doing great and have come so far!!


sharklover on 02/12/2007:
Congrats on losing the 1/2 pound! I know I get let down too when I see such a small loss on the scale, but every little loss will add up to be huge eventually! And as long as you are sticking to your plan, you'll loose more and half a pound again! :-) Keep up the good work!


mcwoo40 on 02/13/2007:
Keep focused, we've all had them moments and me especially,carry on regardless and think of yourself in the summer, in your lovely slinky dresses!!


borntocry on 02/13/2007:

Another moderately good day for me today. The calories werent bad although I am struggling to keep to the 1400 I set myself, just going over it everyday but without any binging. Did the exercise and drank the water. I have worked out a new strategy for myself which should keep me beneath the cals monday to friday. I will tell you if it works out for me this week. I have to say that I spent a lot of time today thinking about this and planning out my next assault on the health front. I wore a new t-shirt today which is more fitted than I usually wear and i have to say it looked pretty good!!! But I want to look better!

Challenge points for today as follows:-

You know, as long as you are eating foods that are healthy for you but are going over your calorie goal, that is still much better than binging and eating junk food! keep up the good work! :-)

borntocry on 02/12/2007:
Hi greengirl,

Thanks for telling me about your strategy! I have been going over my calorie limit every day now, so I needed some help. I'm going to try to do something similar by having lunch a little later than usual. Hopefully that way I won't be so hungry when I get home from work. I also tend to eat more later in the day, so it will help me too to have more calories left for that time. Thanks!

Hello everyone, I am feeling better after a couple of days back on the healthy eating plan. i want to do the best I can for the next couple of weeks, as I am organising a family party for Friday 23rd of this month, for my second son's 21st birthday, and I really want to let my hair down then!!!! Today I had a good hour on the treadmill. I did my three mile brisk walk in just under 51 minutes, then kept the pace up until I passed the 5 kilometre mark (just over 3 miles), before I started to slow down for my chill down. I am training for my 5 kilometre sponsored race in June. I'm not planning on running the distance but I might do it at a jog if I can build up my endurance in the next few months. The raceforlife is just for women, and you can go at any speed you want. I'm really looking forward to it:)

As for my challenge points for today:-

calories 2 points

water 2 points

exercise 2 points

No binging 10 points

Positive posting 10 points

26 points in total

Good luck with your endeavours and hopefully i will catch up with you all again tomorrow :)

Progress as of today: 40 lbs lost so far, only 37 lbs to go!

rjf on 02/10/2007:
It sounds like you are doing well. I notice one thing when I look at your progress bar........you now have less to lose than you have already lost.....if you can do it once......you can do it again! Way to go! *smiles*


borntocry on 02/10/2007:
It's so cool that you are doing this race. I remember when Runner persuaded me to try my first race last year. Unlike her I have no chance of ever winning or anything like that, but it is still a great atmosphere and lots of fun. And it's especially cool to do it for a good cause. I almost signed up for a race to raise funds for breast cancer but it was too early in the morning for me! Still, I would like to do something like that some day. Good for you!


mylifechanges on 02/10/2007:
wow..congrats on the 5k! I can't wait until I'm small enough to start training for something like that. Your progress really has been amazing...and it encourages me to see that if others can do it, than I can too! :) And congrats on the challenge points for the day too- you're doing fantastic!! Thanks for your kind words on my post, they really keep me going!


weightlossyoyo on 02/10/2007:
Good for you and the race! I love running/walking, I alternate laps at the gym. You kind of get into your own world during the process and eventually you start looking forward to it.


Workingit2 on 02/10/2007:
How great to get ready for a race! YAY! You are doing so wonderfully, and THANK you so much for being so supportive for me and kind. I appreciate it. **HUG**

Hi everyone. i'm sorry I have been missing in action since Tuesday but I have had less free time than I anticipated this week. First let me say that I dramatically fell off the bandwagon on Wednesday night. Had a night out with the girls, drank several (?) glasses of sweet white wine, and once I lost all my inhibitions (and common sense!!!) I went on to eat a huge pile of cheese and crisps (what you US ladies call chips). Calorie total totally went thro' the roof but you gotta let your hair down sometime.Because I went out early I didnt have time to exercise either so the day was a total washout challenge-wise!!! Total point for Wednesday , managed to drink the water 2 points.

Thursday was a better day healthwise for me. I went over very slightly on the calories, and managed to get my exercise in, and did the water easily. Points for Thursday were exercise 2 points, water 2 points, no binging 10 points. 14 points in all. Thursday night I had to attend parent-teacher night at my daughters school. It's her last , and most important year at secondary school, before moving on to sixth-form college. She got a wonderful report from all the teachers I talked too. She is very hard working, and on target to get good results in her GCSE examinations. We also received a written report and her form teacher described her as an exemplary pupil, who is a credit to the form and an asset to the school. A lot of the subject teachers have said she has been a pleasure to teach. I am very proud of her!!!

Today has been a good day!! YAY!! Points for today are as follows calories 2 points, water 2 points, exercise 2 points, no binging 10 points, saying something good about myself 10 points. What I'd like to say is that I've been a pretty good parent, who has managed to raise 3 wonderful children to adulthood, who are all a credit to me. Its my most important acheivement to tell you the truth.

To recap my challenge points

Wednesday 2 points

Thursday 14 points

friday 26 points

I havent commented on diaries tonight, but i have read all the latest entries right back to the last entry I made on Tuesday. There are so many of us now, it took me absolutely ages so I didnt have time to comment but can I just say, I love your new haircut Sweetpea!! Welcome to new members that I missed, and nice to see Scruffy resurfacing. I will comment on diaries tomorrow night, and good luck to us all!!! I think I will need luck to see a loss this week!!!

Progress as of today: 40 lbs lost so far, only 37 lbs to go!

congrats on jumping back on the bandwagon after a few difficult days! You're doing great, stick with it! :)


Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/09/2007:
eh, 2 points are better than NO points!


Justine6Robert3 on 02/09/2007:
I have to agree, raising 3 great kids is a very important achievment. That is my most important job also. Mine are both still so little, the teenage years seem a little scary to me!! You must be so proud of your daughter, she sounds very bright.

Ahh, the girls night out!! Its always nice to get out with the girls. Sounds like you enjoyed yourself even if you over indulged a little:)

Good job with getting your points back on track today!


mcwoo40 on 02/10/2007:
It is good having a night out with the girls although i can't even remember the last time that was.I used to go out with my mum alot, now she is no longer with us. My job is very unsociable hours, so i am glad to get in my bed nevermind going out.I was at parents evening on monday and the teachers where made up with my younger daughter(the older daughter is special needs so i have reviews with her teacher and the special needs teacher every term).They are like chalk and cheese in looks, personality and forever arguing!!I would say parenting is the hardest job I've ever done but very rewarding.Get back on track then you will reap the rewards later,Julie

Quick update tonight. Ive spent too much time already reading and commenting already!!! My weigh-in was good. Another 1.5 pounds gone, hopefully forever!! My nephew has brought round the exercise bike he promised. Its bigger than I thought. Today is my day for no exercise but obviously I gave the bike a 5 minute tryout, and I can already feel that it will be using different muscles than the treadmill. It was quite strenuous for me. I wont count it for the challenge tho'.

Challenge points for today are :-

exercise 0 points

Calories 2 points

Water 2 points

Positive comments 10 points

No snacking 10 points

Saying something good about myself 10 points. The good thing is that i have followed through on my promise to register for the run for life in June. I have paid registration for myself and my daughter, and set up my online sponsor sheet and i am determined that I will be jogging at least part of the course, not just walking. More incentive to get myself fit for the summer months!!!

Total challenge points 34. i'm very pleased with that:)

Progress as of today: 40 lbs lost so far, only 37 lbs to go!
