WI points: all!!!

Geevee, I have heard of the two products you mentioned, but have not tried either one! Maybe next time...but, isn't the spirulina one a little high in calories? I'm not sure. the taste of the kombucha is a little "vinegary." I've tried two types, the cranberry one had much less of a vinegar taste and I liked it far better!

Food was good today.

Foods: egg, large peach, egg, tomato, carrots, bbq shredded chicken, large tea with milk, 100 cal balance bar, strained yogurt, seaweed salad, package of microwavable vegetables, lox, grapefruit. and another peach.

Total cal: 1180. Goodnight!

I had a good day, I was productive.

Moody on 02/12/2007:
Great points!!! You're doing awesome!!

I had no idea what some of your foods were that you mentioned, but your peach sounds heavenly!!

Glad you had such a great day!! Keep it up!

sharklover on 02/12/2007:
Great food, great points, great day! Great job!!

girliegirl6486 on 02/12/2007:
Great job with the calories, food today was a good variety too!

Just checking in to say helooooo :)

borntocry on 02/13/2007:
Wow, good job with the calories! That must have been tough for you!

So you've tried the shirataki noodles (I was kind of thinking I should have left that comment to you instead of GG, but I see you read it anyway!)? It's somewhat of a relief to know that they might not be all that great because otherwise I'd have to kick myself for practically giving up pasta when there's a 0-calorie alternative out there! Also, I don't know if they're available here. There's an Asian store where I could look. So let me know if you try them again!

Umpqua on 02/13/2007:
What healthy food choices, and they sound yummy! Great job! Thanks for your comment to me and don't worry, I don't make a habit of skipping meals. And when I do I make up the calories. No one around here ever goes hungry ;)

WorkingIt2 on 02/13/2007:
OH GREAT JOB on the calories!!! GOOD Going! YAY!

lafemme_loca on 02/13/2007:
You are doing great as always ! :-) Thanks for your comments on my post. I went back and counted up the protein and was happily surprised to find it actually was 74g for the day... :-) Enjoy your night !!

sasyredneckgirl on 02/13/2007:

WI Points: 24. although calories were low today I was eating when i was full, so no points for binge/diet.

I tried this really cool drink a week ago made from fermented kombucha (some kind of tea leaf, I believe). It has an aquired taste for about 60-70 calories a bottle. However, it's difficult to drink this stuff fast because it has a powerful taste and its slightly carbonated. It's satisfying! And, for a large bottle, 60-70 calories is not bad! It has a ton of health benifits. I threw away the bottle, so next time I get it, probably this coming weekend, I will write more information on it. I looked online, but there are a few websites but all of them advertise a slightly different product than the one I bought. more about that another time.

my stomach is streched to its limit, ugh. I actually only exercised 20 minutes yesterday...and i'm only gonna do a half hour today. I'll make up for yesterday mostly in my calories these coming days.

i orderred the noodles, GG! As soon as I read about them in your entry, I searched them out! So, I can't wait to try them in about a week!

Goodnight, all!

WorkingIt2 on 02/11/2007:
That drink sounds very interesting! Would love to hear more about it =)

geevee on 02/11/2007:
The acquired taste of kombucha is probably similar to the asai that we're hooked on. Asai has a definite medicinal, unpleasant taste yet it gets rave reviews and is hailed as the new wonder fruit. Ask that gal at your health food store about it the next time you go. It's not cheap by any means. At Wild Oats a 12oz bottle of it goes for $2.95. One pound of frozen pulp for $5.00. I'll ask Billy about kombucha.

Have you tried spirlina? that's supposed to be so nutritious. The negative for me is the awful color or charcoal gray that it gives to Billy's delicious smoothees. It's like you look at this ugly concoction and lose all desire because it's so unappealing. At least all the other fruit pulp we use masks the awful smell of asai. The sherbet-type ice made from it though is good.

WI Points: 22. too high calories, binge dinner by finishing everything, only 20 min exercise.

Total calories: 5600!

Eating was fantastic, all day.

However, tonight was one killer of a "cheat meal." Maybe some of you remember I wrote earlier this week that i'd be going out to dinner on Saturday night. Well, that was last night. We went to Houlihan's. I'm sure some of you are familiar with that place. I ordered a grilled vegetable with cheese and pesto practically fried panini sandwich that came with fries. I had the entire thing. Also, I had a piece of the "pizza" looking appetizer called "crisp lavosh pizzette." I also had some of the cabbage salad with whatever dressing was on it that came with the seared tuna in fried wanton wrappers. For dessert, I had HALF or more of the apple cobbler/pie with whipped cream and vanilla ice cream. then, I had 1/2 of my friend's peanut butter cheesecake dessert as well:

Calories for Houlihans: appetizers: 600; Large fries: 1,000; HUGE grilled pannini sandwich: 1500; very large apple cobbler, whipped cream and ice cream: 1,000; peanut butter cheesecake: 600. Total: 4710

Calories for early part of the day: apple, egg, emergen-c, egg, coffee, light yogurt, salad with arugala mix, tomato, summer squash, green peppers, mushrooms, another egg (not much to choose from, I was at the University), a new kind of very low sugar, all natural and raw drink, 1 cup of bran, 1/2 cup soymilk, one greek yogurt with some chocolate stevia flavoring.

Total calories for early part of the day: 890. I was happy with that because NO binges were involved. I didn't think I'd be having dessert at Houlihan's, though.

I don't regret last night, but my stomach is still in pain today. LOL. It was a lot of food. the apple cobbler looked like more than 1/4 of what could have been an entire pie/recipe.

candance on 02/11/2007:
Just put it behind you and start all over today. Today is the first day of the rest of your life!

borntocry on 02/11/2007:
Oh my goodness, is that really how many calories there are in those dishes? I would never have estimated them that high!

geevee on 02/11/2007:
What a good reminder that I CANNOT trust myself to go to Houlihan's.

mcwoo40 on 02/11/2007:
Tomorrow is always another day to start your diet as long as you enjoyed what you over indulged i would'nt worry,Julie

greengirl on 02/11/2007:
Thats one big meal!!!! How did you fit it in?? Seriously tho'. Whats done is done. Just have to start again :)

GG on 02/11/2007:
You totally do not have to appologize for all the notes I love them! ha ha! And I am soooo glad I made your day with the noodles! As a matter of fact, I just had some! They have the funniest texture and you would never have thought but they are crunchy! But they are awsome and mold to ANY FLAVOR you put on them! I just put tomato paste & basil on them and microwaved them for a bit and let me say: PASTA! It was awsome and a really good snack because I am no longer hungry! And hopefully I wont be until dinner! However, shipping takes a week, so I would get on that soon! I think I am going to order some more very soon! --Woah, I just read your entry and MAN, going out to dinner wrecks havoc on one's diet!!! But oh well, you knew it was going to be a cheat meal!! I mean if it were a straight out binge then it would have not been too fun! --What was your new kind of low sugar? The sweetener I use is Stevia, I am sure you have heard of it right? It is a bit expensive but you can get it at whole foods & wild oats and it has zero calories so it is worth it's expense! ha ha! --All I can say about your big eating day, I hope you worked out a bit? ha ha!

GG on 02/11/2007:
ha, i just read that you do know what stevia is: never mind! ha ha ha!

GG on 02/11/2007:
Ok now I am bombarding you with messages: I am on the website of the restaurant you went to last night and...well you could have made slightly better choices but I guess if the food is good and you knew you wanted to cheat: GO FOR IT! ha ha! Just next time stick to the fish selections or fajitas!! :)

mylifechanges on 02/11/2007:
just remember that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it. You had a bad day- we all do. Your strength is found in rising to meet the challenge again tomorrow! You can do it!

I ate well today but had a minor binge of 850 calories for dinner. I then decided to have a yogurt right before bed. Total calories were still good, 1410!

Foods: apple, egg, egg, tofu, carrots, tomato, brussel sprouts, seaweed salad, iceberg salad, vinegar, lox, bravo (ritz) crackers, 2 cups all-bran extra fiber, one cup soy milk, yogurt.

i keep wanting more food, but its 10pm and i'll be sleeping soon. ugh. i'm gonna get some tea. Maybe all that lox is getting me thirsty...its extremely salty.

I used my time wisely this evening to get some work done at the school library. I plan on going back there tomorrow, as I didn't finish the work because it takes awhile to look up all the information. It's a research/music research class.

I guess I don't feel bad about the binge, since calories are still low and I ate what I wanted. Aside from Tuesday, calories remained low this week. Tomorrow evening I'll be going out for dinner I think; and so far, I'm looking foward to it.

alright, goodnight everyone!

Donkey on 02/10/2007:
Sounds as though you are doing well! Keep it up!

borntocry on 02/10/2007:
Poor you - going to bed hungry sucks! I also consider it a waste to eat a lot right before bed (as you mentioned a couple of days ago), but sometimes I'm so hungry it keeps me up. However on days like that it doesn't even matter how much I eat - nothing can quell my hunger. The best thing is probably just to go to bed and try to sleep it off!

greengirl on 02/10/2007:
Sounds like an excellent day to me, so your 'binge' must have been a small one!!Well done on getting the research organised at the library. Keep up the good work :)

GG on 02/10/2007:
Despite the "binge" you did not even hit 1500 calories! HA, go you, LOVE WHEN THAT HAPPENS!!! I see you had some seaweed salad, how AMAZING is that stuff! ha ha! Sadly, I have read the ingredients, but hey, why bust anyones bubble and mention whats in it! ha ha ha, just enjoy, I mean its always served in small servings so WHO CARES: and its healthy!! wahoo!

WorkingIt points: all!!!!!!

great day calor-wise. I had a lot to spare on dinner, which was large; and did still include a MONSTER-SIZED SALAD (LOL, GG) with some smoked salmon (lox), followed by a bowl of all-bran and soy milk. i didn't need the cereal and milk, but, since calories were overall low, i had it.

Foods: emergen-c, egg, egg, shredded pork, carrots, tomato, cliff bar, seaweed salad, bag of iceberg, shredded romaine, more shredded romaine, vinegar, smoked salmon, soymilk, all-bran.

total calories: 1270. :) very happy!

You seem to be keeping calories in check...is it due to be time of month,,which makes ya tiired...hope ya get some good sleep......I binge often during the time of month tooo...so that makes up for it right :)

Great job keeping your calories nice and low!! I have been struggling to do that this past week. I just got my monthly friend today so I hope my appetite starts to decrease now!! 1200 calories thats great!

I hope you feel more rested tomorrow! It's great that you dressed nicely and pushed forward. I remember when I was younger I could stay up all night and look exactly the same the next day, no red eyes or bags!! It seems to be catching up to me with age!! I'll have to try cucumbers on my eyes to see if that actually works!!!!

Have a great day!

I was really tired today. I went to bed around 1am and woke up at 6 for work. i'll update with a real entry tonight! ----------------------------------------------------


WI Points: 24. (no points for exercise and i had a semi-controlled binge at night before bed.)

Today was really good, and I could have EASILY kept calories lower than 1300 today. But, instead, I had a semi-binge late at night when I got home from music practice. I almost never binge at night, because I know it's such a waste considering i'm going to bed. the only good thing is that I will not wake up starving in the am!

Foods: Breakfast: egg, emergen'c, apple. 170

Snack: egg 70

Lunch, BBQ shredded pork, tomato, carrots 260

Large snack at home: 2 and 1/4 cups of fiber one, one cup of soy milk. two strained greek yogurts with the no cal stevia (flavored apricot and dark chocolate). total cal: 490

Snacks during practice: 2 bags of freeze-dried apples. 210 calories total

Binge at 10:45pm: 2 yogurts with no-cal sweetner, honey wheat pretzels, piece of fried tofu, tostitos. this cost me 590 cal.

Total cal: 1790.

I didn't get any exercise, so those calories are borderline too high for today!

otherwise, a good day with work.

I'm trying to learn how to save and wait for good times to eat high cal, denser food. I am trying to eat low cal (not today, obviously) for the rest of the week. I will be going out to dinner on Saturday evening probably. I plan on getting something carby and fatty. LOL, that's what i'm saying now! However, if the rest of the week goes well, I'm going to do just that. Lately, I've been thinking about pancakes a lot! LOL ok, goodnight. I'm gonna be majorly tired tomorrow! however, i am happy with myself and life.

borntocry on 02/07/2007:
That is what I am doing too. I think about all the holidays and fun occasions in life when I will want to eat what I like without guilt - like popcorn at the movies, or ice-cream on the beach, or my mother's chocolate cake. I would so much rather save my calories for those occasions than blow them all stuffing handfuls of dry cereal into my mouth after work just because I'm tired and bored.

You asked me a couple of days ago whether I ever worry about becoming diabetic. Well, a year or so ago I was experiencing some strange symptoms and was convinced that I was becoming diabetic due to all these years of binging. See, I don't know about you, but I was like this even as a child. I wasn't fat so I wasn't dieting or anything but even then I would go on major eating sprees. It didn't help that my mother is an amazing chef but saved her skills for the huge dinner parties which she hosted every few weeks. My brother and I would sneak downstairs after the guests had finished and we would descend upon the dining table like a swarm of locusts. So these erratic eating habits have been going on for me for many years now and I'm sure it can't be good. But hopefully the situation is finally starting to improve. The funny thing is that I don't even remember what those symptoms were which had me so convinced that I was becoming diabetic!

Thanks for your tip of Fiber One cereal. I don't think that is available here, but I will look for it. Might be able to find it in England. If not then I can always look up the ingredients online and try to find an equivalent at the natural foods store I go to!

Hey, well done you!

Thanks for your comment. I love the fake deli meat! The hickory smoked Tofurky tastes just like real turkey to me. But then, it's been seven years since I last had real turkey, so perhaps I have just forgotten what it tastes like. Unfortunately I cannot get Tofurky here, but I found a kind of fake ham instead. I've never had ham so I can't say how authentic it was but it seemed very meaty. I don't know what the point would be for a meat-eater, but for me, it's good for sandwiches as it's healthier than cheese and sometimes vegetables just won't cut it on their own!

At this time next year, I hope I have a tenure track teaching position that I have done well at and will be able to continue the following year. Lately, I look at myself, 24 years old, in my mid-twenties, and wonder how much longer it will be till I will be able to live on my own. Earlier this year, I was paid as a teacher because I had a leave position. Now, the teacher I'm covering for is just using his sick days; and I am being paid like a substitute. I can't move out until I have something MUCH more permanent and with better pay. It's year number 3 since I finished my undergrad and now I'll be done with my masters this summer. I hope to find a job BEFORE summer begins. I'm doing everything I can!

I feel that I performed nicely last night at the band rehearsal I went to, thanks to the practicing i've been doing. I had a nice French horn tone and I should think about that tomorrow and make sure I get some practicing in before I loose it all!


WI points: 24 points (none for diet plan, binging.)

Total calories today: 2390.


well, today started off alright. however, things went downhill at 2:30 when I had my late lunch followed by a binge.

Breakfast: fiber one, soy milk, apple, egg. 370 cal. Snack: chicken salad, carrots, red pepper, tofu. 280 calories.

I guess you can say I was a little bingy in the morning.

Snack: 100 cal balance bar.

Lunch: tomato, salad, portabella muchrooms, 2 yellow peppers, one whole eggplant and tofu. Then, 5 minutes later...I should have LEFT THE HOUSE!

Binge following Lunch: 4 servings of pretzels (440), one mousse yogurt (140), 2 cookies (200), and one cup of cottage cheese (240).

Total calories so far: 2240. could be worse.

lately, its one day is a binge the next 1-2 days I watch myself. then repeat. all January. eh, I would rather February be a little calmer food-wise!

Soon2BThin on 02/03/2007:
I think as long as you are keeping track of what you are eating, you are fully aware of you're actions. So you do have some control of the binging. That's a start! I hope February goes better for you. Remember, it takes baby steps!

borntocry on 02/03/2007:
I have been doing the same thing, except that recently I have been unable to keep the calories down at all, so I'm just trying to limit the damage. Don't know which is worse, really!

kerrie8727 on 02/03/2007:
we all go through stages its just u have to recognise them and make up for the next day or week the more we resist and stop ourselves the worse we fall when we do i have had much worse binges !!

Donkey on 02/03/2007:
They say that you need 3 days to make a new habit stick. If you can get past the 3rd day, then the new habit becomes easier to stick to, e.g. quit smoking, stop bingeing, etc. I think you are trying to break the cycle, just having a hard time getting over the 3rd day. Keep trying!

candance on 02/03/2007:
I have found that it helps me to not be so hard on myself therefore if my eating is not perfect I wont feel as tempted to binge to punish myself for my eating not being perfect.

WorkingIt2 on 02/04/2007:
Not only are you feeling tense because of the rehersals, you are also tense because you have a strong desire to move out on your own. I've noticed that on the days that you do your Yoga, that you are in more control. Almost like because you planned a healthy activity for yourself that you stick to all the aspects of your healthy lifestyle. As far as being required to be out of the house at a particular age...one of my younger brothers lived at home with the parents until he was 28. Reason being, he had a mountain of student loans to pay off, and didn't start out with a high paying job after college. He eventually landed that job and was able to move out. It will all happen..just keep doing what you've been doing and it will all fall into place! Have a great day! =)

geevee on 02/04/2007:
Thanks for the reminder about adding some fiber to cottage cheese and yogurt. I had gotten out of the habit. I like to sprinkle a couple of spoonfuls of either flax meal or wheat germ over the fruit and dairy. It's also good on salads.

You've been very busy the past few years teaching and working on your Master's, so don't fret. With the high cost of rents nowadays, more and more adult children are staying home because they simply can't afford to move. You most assuredly are not alone.

And here I am on the other side, having taken in my son and his two kiddies who are here every other week. This is the son who left home the minute he graduated from high school so it must be difficult for him to be back. An adult living with one's parents is not the ideal situation and does require care and caution to make it work, but it can be done. I'm just happy to be able to provide a cushion at a bad time.

stringbean on 02/04/2007:
I tend to eat worse if I see a loss on the scale too- which is why I put the scale away. It's like that loss gave me permission to have extra food- which I know is insane, because I work HARD for my losses, I shouldn't give them up so easily for crap food that makes it null and void and makes me feel like crap. Other than your after-lunch binge, you look like you're choosing good foods!

I've been plucking my eyebrows and waxing them for lots of years now LOL. I love the look of nice clean eyebrows, but not thin ones...my aunt used to shave hers off and draw them in..YUCK LOL

hey there! Thank you so much for all of your kind words and encouragement! It really means so much to me. I am amazed by your willpower and dedication! Congrats on the January challenge- you were amazing! With that kind of dedication I know you can reach your goals!! Great food choices, by the way! That's something to be proud of!

You seem very dedicated to your profession and I hope you soon find something permanent to work on. You deserve it. i'm sure the stress of your situation is contributing to your current binge mentality. Hope you find solutions to your problems soon!!
