Thumbs up from me too :D When you count calories do you write things down as you eat them or do you remember and do it at the end of the day?


grumpy on 05/22/2009:
good job on keeping calories lower! oh i need to hear about this boy. message me on FB! hehe

that time of the month is coming and i feel both the pound or so i've regained and also some bloating. it's not as bad as it could be though. and my face is not looking very bad either. i'm thankful for both!

eating as gone nicely. :)

total calories so far: 1050 before dinner! i say nicely done :) and eating was definitely healthy for the most part. veggies will be had at dinner and a microwave meal. yay. i've bought a selection of tasty lean cuisines that are more carby (carbs) but are tasty. i want to eat for the enjoyment bc that will help prevent binging in a lot of ways...

so, calories after dinner will definitely be under or at 1550. i am happy about this and also confident in my ability to be able to lose weight. i KNOW i CAN do this alone. i CAN. not can't.

if i do end up meeting with a psychologist, which i may call to look into on wednesday or so depending on my schedule, it is more to talk about my apprehensions about my future success at any career. otherwise, i'm doing OK. not good, not bad. but somewhat satisfied.

as for the guy, we are in touch right now. nothing more. this is weird, but i wonder if he wouldn't date me bc i'm jewish?? i'm not very religious at all, it's more like my upbringing. i continue with the traditions i've learned. just like anyone who celebrates any religion. i didn't mean to bring up religion to offend anyone on here, sorry if i did.

looks like your head is screwed on straight. yes, you can do this! but dont be afraid to consult any help or support if you need it. i need daily help and support!! i still screw up all the time. as for the boy, i would hate to think that is the reason...and these days, unless things are super-serious, this shouldnt even be a shadow of an issue! hope you had a great night. xoxo

Re: Healthy Fats for Monday ~ I fit in 1/2 Avocado & EVOO to cook the chix for my supper salad.... I did it!!!! (hehehehehehehehehe) Oh and a little square of Xtra dark chocolate (1/4 serving)....

Have a great TUesday!


grumpy on 05/19/2009:
Guys are stupid. Has nothing to do with the fact you're jewish. If it was the other way around, he was and you werent maybe, but i doubt it crosses his mind, unless he is REALLY religious. It's probably because he's an idiot. :) xoxox

I love your enthusiasm! You CAN do this alone :D Keep up the good work and don't let anyone get you down.

grumpy on 05/18/2009:
did you binge on dates? girl, have you been eating your calendar? :) Don't worry, those things come and go, and you have made them stop before, so you can do it again. You know what to do. Same as me and weight loss. I am not losing because I am not doing what I have to do. On another note, I met a Sharon there, she is a PHD student. So 3. :)

670 calories throughout day.

snack after school: 350 or so. chips and salsa lol. unlike me, but so good! :)

total for now: 1020....

as for florida guy, he said this "are you only friends with me because you find me attractive???" can you believe he texted that....we had another long (1.5 hours or so) texting on and off last night because i wasn't even interested in actual talking with him. i was in a bad mood and i was really congested and sick anyway.  He basically said that after i said that i expect too much out of this (as in our relationship). and that's when he went to ask me that. crazy conversation.

in the past i've told him i find him attractive, so he already knew that. how should i take what he said? i doubt he meant it to be conceded thinking he's all that, but i could be wrong. it's not like i have major experience in all this. he did come to tell me that he finds our conversations (and we do talk on the phone more as of recently) to be good and that's why he continues to talk to me. he also told me i'm one of the only people he talks to besides his brother and one or two coworkers. but he wants that friendship i think. that's it.  it's upsetting to me for sure!

so, although i have finally memorized his phone number, i will have to practice huge self control, unlike last night when i gave in and texted him.  i need to do it for me, like grumpy suggested. i wonder what it is that makes him so anti being intimate with a girl that likes him? why didn't he just act on it in the first place. gosh! 

and it's NOT like i want to marry him!!! i just would love to kiss him. he won't have any part in it. not sure why. but i told him one day i won't be there to be his "texting buddy." damn it, i'm not a boy!

talk to you all soon. time to do laundy and clean up before i head out to enjoy the weather. i'm feeling a bit better! :)
