Weight: 133.0

breakfast: apple, green drink 170

lunch: kashi bar, tea, flavored water: 250

snack: lettuce, vegetable soup, tofu: ...bran/almond milk...410

total so far: 830 ok.

dinner: out for mom's bday.  something healthy though.

dinner was good, but large portion. not too large not unhealthy. large piece of salmon w. some kind of brushetta tasting sauce, with tons of steamed vegetables and a small bite of apple pie. sheesh. i'm not sure on calories.  my guess is around 900.

total calories today: 1730. i'm totally happy with this. 30 minutes at gym on elliptical.

tomorrow i will go to yoga in the am. followed by a movie and dinner later in the day. going out to eat and hopefully very healthy again. i would love some fish or a lean meat as i don't eat that during the week (i don't cook fish/meat for myself) so i end up eating lots of tofu and other less protein rich foods. lol, so when i go out, i try to order things i don't eat at home! :)

i will try to continue my good eating pattern and stick with this yoga, although today i couldn't make it!

Progress as of today: -8 lbs lost so far, only 18 lbs to go!

skinnyjeans on 11/14/2008:
So what is your green drink? A vitamin drink? :)

thinnside40 on 11/14/2008:
Oh hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!! Your patience comment to ME...... I AM NOT the most virtuous in the patneince department no doubt.... I have to restrain myself 90% of the time, as I have a short fuse.....I think that is why I am tired most of the time is from having to make myself be patient.... Zapp-o's me!

Have a spectacular time with celebrating your mom's b.d..... NO LEFT_OVER CAKE!!!!!!!! ; o )

WI3 on 11/14/2008:
Happy Birthday to your mom! You keep hanging in there, we'll watch movies together LOL

skinnyjeans on 11/14/2008:
Those green drinks both sound like great "super foods"! :)

today was a bit nutty - in an overall good way.

i woke up early with less appetite than usual.

breakfast: green drink. w. protein, apple: 170

lunch: kashi bar, tea w. milk: 200

snack: large popcorn and tea: 250

dinner: salad: WHOLE avocado, lettuce, whole tomato, whole big red pepper, 1/4 block tofu. 500 approx. :)  LOL. and kombucha. 560 very filling but healthy. i really wanted the healthy fats from the avocado as i haven't been eating enough of them.

total cal: 1180.  and yoga :) 

today was a trying day. i don't even have the energy to discuss it right now.


someone at school/work was really sad and i felt horrible for her. she just got divorced (abusive husband) in july and her mom/grandparents are deceased. she has a young daughter and for the holidays she has little people to be with. she has to let her daughter go to her ex on christmas morning. i feel really bad for her because she IS a VERY VERY kind hearted person who doesn't deserve such harshness of life.

i also was upset over something of little importance. I didn't have enough cash to buy my lunch. the hospital doesn't accept credit or debit which i think is INSANE. so, the woman told me i couldn't pay her back tomorrow. so, i had to return most of my lunch being left only with tea. so i settled down in the lobby of the hospital and then walked to a deli for the remainder of my lunch. i was hoping to study but instead i was frolicking from place to place in the rain. lol. no biggie but i think i will have to watch my cash better now or i'll be left lunchless unless i go where debit is accepted! lol.

what else? i'm doing pretty well and my confidence is high right now. my mom'd bday is tomorrow.  i got her a glass dish and potpourri for her bathroom. hopefully she'll like it.  she can be picky with scents but she can ALWAYS return it. 

Progress as of today: -8 lbs lost so far, only 18 lbs to go!

grumpy on 11/13/2008:
That's a good way to lose weight, never having cash. hahaha

my breakfast was a chicken biscuit and a piece of a donut. naughty. but i got to the studio and they have tones there. argh. anyway, better days to come. i am certainly having a hard time right now.

now you milady, looks great and i can totally feel your confidence and control. i am cheering for you here. xoxo

skinnyjeans on 11/13/2008:

loveray on 11/10/2008:
good plan, HOP! love to you

loveray on 11/10/2008:
JUST a suggestion: i am not sure how you make it through lunch with just the soy chips! maybe adding some protein calories to the lunch will fill you up more so you dont have the urge to binge @ dinner...used to work for me. xoxo

grumpy on 11/11/2008:
yogurt with burger? you freak. hahaha

i agree on your comment, i didnt mean stop having fun, i should be having fun, but what i am currently doing that i need to stop is eat unhealthy for fun and skipping working out to do something fun... that's not good. I will come around, come on me! haha. xoxo

skinnyjeans on 11/11/2008:
1400 cals and a yoga class! Perfect day!

hollybelle on 11/12/2008:

Click on the pen beside the pair of glasses and it will appear "my diary"

Have a great evening!

ddwebmaster on 11/12/2008:
The link to start a new diary entry is located inside the box at the top of your "my diary" page. There are 2 links directly below the search box that says "Last 7 days". It probably needs to be better positioned, but I've been in kind of a hurry just trying to get the functionality working.

SHould look like this a bit... When you click on that pen, it will take you to where it says like it is above... T"chart monthly averages" & "new entry" is in a faint grey color...

Weight: 135.0

did a little cleaning laundry and picked up newspapers from the store along with a few tasty varieties of squash.

breakfast: tea, greek yogurt 1/2 cup, pb, 3 bran crackers: 310.

2mi walk.

lunch: not what i had planned. too overboard but didn't totally go on a carb binge. and that's good bc i will have an easier time come dinner and tomorrow and days ahead. 1360 calories for lunch.

dinner: with grandma. baked trout with a little bread (very tasty) topping, sauteed veggies (including eggplant - wow), soup, salad, fruit good dinner, definitely in line with any 5 star restaurant. 650 or so.

total today: 2320. eeh. yucko.

better tomorrow for sure... tomorrow: will be more careful with my eating so as not to binge again. breakfast will include a green drink. snack will be an apple. lunch will be soy chips/tea w. milk. snack on an apple/drink and dinner will be salad w. veggie burger and some yogurt.

i may go out for a short walk tonight. or maybe just go on the treadmill. i did 2 mi earlier. my ankle is not doing so well.

i jumped on the scale, in clothing, and to my dismay it was above 135. this is scary a bit, since this is the highest i've weighed in my life. lately, although there have been some binges this week, they were more or less in moderation. the good thing is this weekend i ranged between 2100-2300 approximately. still to much but not like a 3,000 or 5,000 calorie day that i easily can do. the yoga is probably helping me also.

a goal of mine is to go to yoga 4x a week (just over half). I will try to go on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays. Maybe more some weeks. The other days i would focus on cardio - even just for a half hour. so, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays would be cardio. as for weights, i'm letting that slip for now.

Progress as of today: -10 lbs lost so far, only 20 lbs to go!

WI3 on 11/09/2008:
Way to go HOP!!! You are so much stronger and it shows through your entries! I think your new career is letting the real you shine through, how exciting! Have a great day =)

skinnyjeans on 11/09/2008:
Mmm squash. I bought a spaghetti squash not too long ago and it was good! Weird how it really looks like spaghetti when you scrape it all out! :)

thinnside40 on 11/09/2008:
You are doing better and that is waht counts at this point.......Repetition gets easier...

Good time with G'ma o.k.?

selina on 11/09/2008:

breakfast: green drink, TWO (could have just had one) turkey burgers, 1/4 cup pb: 800.

snack: 650 apple, burger, lots of dried fruit

snacking: fiber drink, tons of pb on crackers, red pepper: 700

total so far: 2150.

plan for food: lots of liquids preferably healthy drinks/shakes. Same tomorrow. followed by dinner with grandma which is something i haven't done...


definitely yoga, 5pm.

Progress as of today: -10 lbs lost so far, only 20 lbs to go!

thinnside40 on 11/08/2008:
I'm getting ready to go to Costco & couple other places... Takes so much time. Reading labels, comparing oz vs. price, etc...... Gunna hit the thrift stores too....

Treadmill & Kids ~ They are more than welcome to use my Gazelle & Exercise Ball, but the treadmill isn't mine... I am not sure I will be using it very long for that fact.... Just was kinda trying it out at the neighbor ladies prompting... She doesn't use it anymore. When something like that isn't mine, I get kinda funny feeling... Will see her tomorrow and talk to her about considering selling it....

Have a good day!

Weight: 135.0

late snack: peanut butter

total today: 1260 approx. GREAT day.


so today was a positive day. exercise, lacking. but a positive day.

breakfast: lox on amy's chicago veggie burger, milk. around 400

lunch: soy chips, tea w. milk 200

i would have had a snack after work but i couldn't show my dad that i didn't rush to meet him to go to the DMV he would have been upset that i was fooling around instead of going directly to meet him after school.

dinner: HUGE, HUGE salad. lettuce 20, tomato 30, red pepper 50, green salsa (not red) from stop and shop 50, tofu 90, microwaved fresh brussel sprouts until crispy (10 minutes or so)130...gum, kombucha total: 460. lol, it was a LOT of food - and healthy.

total: 1060. wow. haven't eaten this low in awhile. I will MAKE SURE it doesn't backfire tomorrow.

so...there's this kid (29 yrs old) in my class who is really, really rude to me. he thinks he can get away with calling me curse words and telling me the rudest things to my face. anyway, he drew very perverted and sexual pictures all over my white hardcover binder when i wasn't in the classroom! could you believe it!? i actually showed my parents last night because i did think it was totally out of control he would do that. my dad flipped out when he saw what this guy drew. so would you, if i showed you.

i told the teacher. she made photocopies of my binder...and will speak with him tomorrow. i think he will be MORE than pissed when this happens.

this guy is definitely strange. he has said lots of even racist things to me. including calling me a JAP (jewish american princess - which is offensive when not said to be humerous), he constantly tries to make me feel very bad about myself and i think he has potential to try to hurt me.

not sure why. at least the teacher sees what's going on. there are 11 total people in my class and they all think this guy is nuts.

Progress as of today: -10 lbs lost so far, only 20 lbs to go!

loveray on 11/06/2008:
yikes, be careful!! stalkers are uncool. i love you and think you are doing so well. good job today- xoxo

thinnside40 on 11/06/2008:
Ben had to turn a kid in @ school yesterday for having a lighter & perfume bottle... He ignited it next to Ben's pants (AHHHHHHHHHH).... The kids got lunch detention and something else.. Not enough as far as I'm concerned!!!! If you feel that the potential is physical harm I would push the issue of "everybody's safety".... You be careful!!!!! The parent in me comes out when I read something like this..Just pure dee ol' wrong in today's society of "wackos" that it takes something actually happening or somebody dying before anybody WILL do anything..... There is a thing called PREVENTION!

Now, got that out of my system... SO HAPPY to see your day turn out so terrific... I bet you feel good too ?!?!?!?!?

Good Night's rest to you & prayers are with you & your classmates....

selina on 11/07/2008:
Hi HoP! I'm sorry you have to deal with weirdos when ideally you should be in a safe academic environment. I agree with the ladies that seem to have given you very good advice, here. Good job with the calories! Hugs to you!

kzirkle on 11/07/2008:
Good luck and be careful with this creepy guy. You're taking the necessary caution and being smart about it so I think you should be ok.

I'll take pics of the puppy if we get one this weekend and try to post them on here! :) Have a great weekend.

hollybelle on 11/07/2008:
Hello there. I'm going back to using my hollybelle name. I don't hav to a new anything - so here I am. I agree with Thin's post up there. You be careful. Now, since I haven't been on the site regularly laely - tell me what kind of class is this, exactly? I'm confused as to why a 29 yo person acting like this would be tolerated unless it has something to do with adults with disabilities, etc.....?

Anyway - as for the good day - WOW, yes, it sure was. You go! WTG!

WI3 on 11/07/2008:
I agree with Biscotti...do not leave it up to the teacher...tell the police!! What he is doing is criminal harassment and possibly also a hate crime. Sorry, but a teacher isn't going to be the one that can deal with this. This guy doesn't need a 'sit down' he needs to be punished by law.

skinnyjeans on 11/07/2008:
1260 cals....FANTASTIC! :) Keep it up! You can do it!

greengirl on 11/07/2008:
Hey HoP this guy sounds strange to me. Be careful sweetheart. Anyone who acts like a teenage bully, at 29 years old is not normal

borntocry on 11/06/2008:
I see you have gained a ton of weight since I was last here. Well, so have I. So much that I'm embarrassed to come back. In fact, don't tell anyone that you saw me here! This is if you still even remember me, of course...
