fasted for most of the day. (religious reasons)  did have some diet drinks.

5pm: ices, decaf coffee, diet soda.

BIG family meal: i'm not listing what i had bc it really doesn't concern me to list. I'll just say I definitely had seconds and much dessert. and the food was satisfying, i wasn't picky. and i left dinner satisfied, not wanting ANY more. even an oreo klondike bar was included.

3 mile walk in the later afternoon before dinner.  i wanted to do more but was exhasuted since i didn't eat until after.

goodnight all.

have a wonderful week.

florida guy and i now text each other all the time and we have spoken a bit more on the phone.  i wonder what he thinks about all this. probably nothing. lol. i wish he would consider me something more than a friend...and that he'd look foward to seeing me when he comes back on Thanksgiving. I still am not sure if he would be able to hang out with me only or if he'd be totally uncomfortable putting aside some time during the holiday just to see me. it's almost too early to ask him. but i will probably talk to him a little bit tonight about everything.

Eating plans look great! You're doing an awesome job - keep it going! :)


mskitty on 09/25/2009:
I find that when in doubt when it comes to men you gotta be straight forward and quite blunt about these things. Because whats the worst that could happen. He tells you hes not that into you. < UM Great! now you just saved yourself how ever many crazy nights wondering about him and can take that time that you would have been wasting on him and put it to better use. Whats the best that could happen. He tells you he likes you or that there is something there. So not only have you not wasted anymore time but you now have a firm grip of were you stand and can start figuring out where to go from there. Honestly men are pretty easy to read, if he likes you he'll have no problem making the time during the holiday...even if its just for an hour or so they find a way. Heck my husband (when we were still dateing) cut his Vacation short, got a moving van and came and picked me and all my stuff up on the other side of the province (14 hours away) after I came and visited him for a week a month prior. (we telecommunicated inbetween)

When men want something and its mutual they go get it. Men who are not interested can be a bit dence and lead women on without knowing it. Its all in the actions they take that tells you their true feelings. If he likes you, your about to find out for sure.

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!

evaopala on 09/20/2009:
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!

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 :-)
