You and I seem to crave those simple carbs more often than not. I have such a hard time resisting them when I am really craving them. And once I start, I can't stop either! Have a lovely, relaxing and beautiful evening!

sounds like you had two great days in a row! awesome! yea, you are right and i am right (in my opinion hahahahaha). i was all bummed thinking i was even lower a week ago and why did i mess up right before my trip, but now i started thinking differently and i really am much happier with myself lately and that wont change because i am a few pounds heavier than i wish i was today. xoxox


kzirkle on 09/17/2008:
Eggplant parm sounds awesome!!! :) Keep having a great day!


thinnside40 on 09/17/2008:
You will be seeing my WW Yogurt back when the fresh prunes aren't available anymore... I don't eat it cause I like it so much, but my system sure has been much more cooperative since impleminting the yogurt/honey....... I have nuts from time to time...Mostly Roasted Lightly Salted Almonds and needed some crunch today........

Your day looks fabulous!


anewhb on 09/18/2008:
Good balance on the menus.......have another good one yourself! Good job!

yes, i am lazy. so, i will bike to the gym and do weights and elliptical and not just take a lazy walk like i usually would. unless i want to get even fatter. i'm putting my weight back up to 130 which is definitely around where it is after this weekend. i don't need to weigh myself in order to KNOW i have gained at least 2 lbs.

calories today could have been nice and low around 1100. but, i decided to ... you guessed it...binge. not near as bad as yesterday.

breakfast: 40 fruit

snack: 210 bar

lunch: small sandwich: 200

snack: bar/healthy drink/shot wheatgrass 240

binge right after snack: 2 bran crackers, THREE slices CHEESECAKE( one plain, one with nuts/caramel, and one chocolate piece), and 2 servings fritos.

all the cheesecake is also leftover from this past week. total 2250.

Progress as of today: -5 lbs lost so far, only 15 lbs to go!

grumpy on 09/15/2008:
Oh nooo.. yesterday i didnt finish the day at 1200s... hahaha. I ate a bunch after, veggies chips, chocolate ice cream, bread and cheese. Didnt even bother updating the count... ufff.... today should be okay. seems like today was under control though, no? xo


thinnside40 on 09/15/2008:
"Do you grow your own prunes?" ~ I do have a prune tree and had a few on it this year, but the ones I am eating are from a lady who I go to church with...She called me last week and asked if I liked them.....YES!!!!!! Their 2 trees were loaded.... I got a grocery basket and bag full... I am going to dehydrate most when they are fully ripened.....

As for never saying you aren't going to do something in particular again.... You need to!... It is the positive thoughts you tell yourself one of these days you are going to believe...Repetition sometimes is a good thing, especially when you are trying to better your habits.... Believe what you say when you say it, don't just wish it! We ALL have our demons of some sort or another and must deal with it and sometimes on a daily basis.......

Best to you H_O_P!

felt a tad swollen and bloated from last night's binge. i would like to keep calories minimal this weekend and i want to get into studying. the plan is to do yoga this morning, get my hair done, find the white pants and one blue top that i need. then, stay at home study a bit (this means go over everything at least once)...and get a fresh vegetable juice drink from a nearby store too. walk later, just a short walk.

breakfast: peach and almond milk: 125.

snack: coconut juice 60

lunch: 16 ounce vegetable juice, ounce wheatgrass, 1.5 cups kombucha, estimating at 250 cal

snack: peach, cereal, almond milk: 320

dinner: pudding and chocolate: 390

total 1175

last binge up till today's binge was on 9/3 i believe. 9 days ago. my goal is not to give into ANY binging from tonight until October 11th when i have to go to a wedding. the goal includes no binging through the jewish holidays and days leading up to the wedding. this will prove VERY difficult!

1st time pigging out since i turned 26 on 9/9/08. it's like there's no escaping the binge. we have TONS of baked items in my house this week. any kind of pastry, cake, cookie, chocolate...we have it!

so, eating was ok throughout day.

binged in the late afternoon, ending around 5:15. obviously everything i eat was dinner also.

total calories: 3800. from 4:30-5:15 binge calories are 3100 of the total 3800 for the day. ew!

no exercise as of yet. might take today off.

part of this binge was hunger (but not much bc i just finished a starbuck's frappuccino)...the rest was definitely emotional: from tiredness...and moreso anxiety as i found some of the info we went through in class today to be a little difficult. but i'll manage. not stopping now!

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 12 lbs to go!

lafemme_loca on 09/12/2008:
Hey HoP, I really hope you can go with no binges !! :-) As for 20s, I discussed my fears of going on Wednesday and I followed up on Thursday about what it is and a little of what happened... I cried a lot... so I said, at some point I need to actually get my thoughts out for why I was so upset. However, I have been avoiding doing that because... yeah that is emotional pain, and I am not ready to delve into it...eventhough, I know I should. *sigh* So, that is what I meant about how I should talk about it. But, I did bring up that at 20s one of my friends had a mild heart attack... and it was also the birthday of a guy that I had a crush on for over a year and some who totally devestated me back in May/June (aka the fireman). So, there you go... drama... which I have been avoiding for awhile now... but at some point I need to deal with my emotions. *sigh*
