Snack: lite ice cream smoothie thing 150, tea? 200.

Snack: ices. 100

total calories: 1480 wahoo! nicely done.

bed early tonight :)

exercise: bike for 1.5 hours, weights, and a short walk this evening.

visiting grandma today. she broke a rib when she fell but did no other major damage luckily. hopefully she'll be up for a walk! it's the activity she loves most in her life right now. 

I can't believe I am so close to being in the 120s, finally.  I'm going to check my journal for the last time I put down a weight in the 120s: sometime last August 2008. So this is clearly some fantastic progress for me.

I WANT TO BE 115 POUNDS by NOVEMBER 15th. I just calculated that this equals EXACTLY TWO pounds per week, which will be a challenge. But possible, right!? as long as I continue with weights and in logging many miles walking/elliptical until then.  This would be a major feat for me. And then the rest of the year I could maintain. I would be VERY happy at 115 and I would NOT strive to go lower until later on if i wanted to. But 115 is my ultimate goal of 2009. And most of 2010 to maintain.

********************************************

sept 20th, my sister's bday.

I have not weighed 131 since last year, probably around this time. I'm making headway, even if i really can't tell. I've noticed that lifting weights really SPEEDS up weightloss. I can do this, I know i can...

I REALLY would LOVE to be 115 by mid november.  or 120. but right now, my main focus is just to simply get into the 120s.  It's a major goal of mine, I know it is possible.  I have GOT TO STICK WITH THIS!  I have been doing really well lately.  I think it's the Celexa that is helping me, not sure. I feel it's calmed me down a little bit.

Sunday will include weights as I didn't do them Saturday. Was low on time and spent my time walking instead. Love to everyone here.

Progress as of today: 9 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

Your so so so close! You can do it.. just stay focused :)

Weight: 131.0

Saturday entry:  I am almost at my 1st goal weight. Once I reach 130, I will lower my goal weight by 5 pounds and continue this pattern.  I am pretty happy to see 131, even if on a totally empty stomach this morning. I'm proud of myself.

happy new year to those who celebrate. woke up and then slept a little bit later today.  I've been sorta lacking on sleep lately. 

9:30 Breakfast: ices, lots of diet soda (by a lot i mean like 6 cups, no caffeine!!), and tea w. milk/sweet and low. total: 160 :)

11am Snack: yogurt 120

3pm lunch/snack: tea w. milk 50, ices100, diet soda: 150. coffee 30.

dinner: with friends of the family. holiday meal. will be moderate and healthy. I want to meet my weightloss goal this November, this year, this time around.edit for dinner: mostly healthy if anything. stuffed cabbage, salad, bbq chicken, green beans, buttered carrots, sauteed potatoes.  dessert was chocolate. If i had to guess on calories, 1600 at most?  very happy. i am getting into a better routine.

total cal: 2,000 for the day, at most probably :) wow. nice job to me!
 

Exercise: will be weights/park.  I know it's the new year but we are not going to temple this year. will be doing the prayers at home with mom, dad, and sister. but i need to get the exercise in, i love it! :) edit on exercise: 4.5 miles wahoo! was difficult today, too tired.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Friday's entry:

wow, so i've been taking celexa, just 10 mg, per day since thursday. in the past, i would have never wanted to take any kind of med, but i feel it has been working pretty well. whenever i feel like i might get anxious, it sorta subsides before it gets any worse. hmmm. so that's that.  i'll keep you all updated. 10mg is considered lower than the therapeutic dose, which is 20-60mg. I know that i will want to increase it to at least 20mg next time i meet with the doctor bc i still feel some of the anxiety. then again, it takes 4 weeks to fully be incorporated into the body for a full response. so maybe 10mg is enough, we'll see.

calories were great on Friday but no exercise.  healthy eating too.

got my laptop looked at at STAPLES, with no luck of them fixing the little problem i have of an error message when it starts up. oh well, i will have to try to continue to fix it on my own. at least all the dust is cleaned out! :) computer is far less noisy now!

 

Progress as of today: 9 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

Happy Rosh Hashana!! Mazel Tov!

What a great way to start off your new year, with a weight loss! I am a bit envious. Yet, I know I hold the potential to reach my goals too. I just feel so worn down and tired.

How come no temple this year? Well, enjoy the holiday at home anyways :-)

to be on the safe side, i'll assume calories for today were around 3,000. that's actually not too bad, as long as i exercise better tomorrow and eat around 1500 tomorrow, which would be a great plan. getting together with someone tomorrow so my mind shouldn't be revolving only around food. I might take a walk on the treadmill tonight, it's already 9pm.

exercise today: 20 min elliptical, 30 min weights/back

breakfast: coffee 50, grapes 50, diet soda no caffeine, fiber one with soy milk 300 total 400

snack: 230 calories, "watchamacallit" chocolate bar.  tasty. was already too low on blood sugar.

HORRIBLE LUNCH: BINGE: DUNKIN DONUTS MULTIGRAIN BAGEL 400, WITH EGG AND CHEESE 200 MORE, PLUS 4 COOKIES 400 MORE, TOFU WITH THE BAGEL ALSO 200 MORE, LOTS OF BANANA AND GRAPES 250 MORE. ARG.

TOTAL SO FAR: 2080 YUCK!

dinner: OUT WITH PARENTS....900 calories. mostly healthy. that's life! at least it was a healthy 900...that's what it's like going out to dinner. can't be too picky or i'll binge the next day anyway.

GRANDMA: BLOOD SUGAR WAS TOO LOW AFTER THE GYM, CHOCOLATE BAR DIDN'T REALLY HELP ENOUGH, AND I BINGED AT GRANDMA'S HOUSE. BAD MISTAKE.  BUT FOR DINNER, I CANNOT SEE EATING MORE THAN 400 CALORIES...

the FL boy: i continue to contact him frequently, usually by text, and he does get back to me, moreso after drinking. so i don't know. i'm not ready to throw in the towel completely yet.  but i know that if he can't share anything on his mind with me, I will definitely have to let go of my feelings for him.

have a good day today!


Donkey on 09/12/2009:
It's really hard when your blood sugar dips too low.


Donkey on 09/12/2009:
What you had for lunch was actually not that bad, even though you classify it as a binge. You should always carry around a packet of almonds or raisins or dried cranberries to help you after the gym. Sometimes, mint gum will do it for me. The bad part about lunch was the 4 cookies. And if you can't have 4 cookies after a workout at the gym, then something truly is wrong with the world today as we know it.

Reality Check: You're being too hard on yourself, HoP.
