(CR & IF & Exercise)
Weight: 112.2

 

Calories so far:

Fiber One (big serving)  150

Quaker crisps, 2 bags.    180

Coffee with protein drink  ~50

Quaker crisps, 2 bags,   180

Sausage & bun                  360

2 English muffns & toppings 350

M&arms                                 220

total:   ~1500

27,800 Fitbit "steps" on bike.   Burned at least half what I ate, hopefully.   wanted to hit 30K but my calves are getting sore.

Weight popping up more than I think it should, given how many Xtra calories ones needs to gain a single pound.   Will pay more attention to counting calories.   am changing diet.   no more M&Ms and chocolate cakes allowed in this house for a while.   no fast food.  

Much cooler here today.   Yay!  

Progress as of today: 21.8 lbs lost so far, only 4.2 lbs to go!

Donkey on 07/08/2021:
What??? That doesn't seem right to me. Could the Fiber One be causing water retention?

Jacky82020 on 07/08/2021:
No, the only resumed Fiber One yesterday & I did it for years previously. Probably I need to take a big Trump, I mean Dump. And probably some weird other water retention. Going to be more mindful of my sodium intake. The Buffalo tuna is high. Hoping Amazon has a better one that qualifies for the 15% discount.


horn_of_plenty on 07/08/2021:
if weight goes up fast, it just seems it would be from water too. like is it that time of month or do you somehow not get that?


horn_of_plenty on 07/08/2021:
or as an opposite, maybe your lower days were extra low and this is really where you are at now..

Jacky82020 on 07/08/2021:
Hard to say! It does fluctuate. Gonna make this a low cal weekend. Nothing chocolate in this house for a while, except the cocoa I’m adding to yogurt.


horn_of_plenty on 07/09/2021:
cocoa is so nice and light! i love to add it to yogurt in the past also i did, i'd also add a sweetener. it was tasty that way, not many calories more. great addition, cocoa.

Jacky82020 on 07/09/2021:
No sweetener. Like adding coffee granules & cocoa to reduce sweetness, either yogurt is naturally sweet or has additives. Buy the large size, generic Walmart.


horn_of_plenty on 07/09/2021:
any amount of fiber in a palm sized serving of food - any amount 4g or higher, is considered pretty darn good. so the muffin, way like two palms, being only 2g makes very little sense as bran has a lot of fiber in it. so something's off. i believe fiber one is bran; and as you see it has a ton of fiber.

These are my fake Popeye/Ch'Kng Sandwiches.   Air fried, of course.   thought both places used Hawaiian Sweet rolls. But Popeye has brioche and BK uses potatoe rolls.  these are brioche and they taste just like Hawaiian to me.  Air fried the buns for 2 minutes.

 

 Woke up at three and can't fall back to sleep.   Waiting for Matt to get up so I can hop on my bike with a cup of coffee and read the newspapers.  Excercised a lot yesterday because I couldn't resist the spicy Ch'King sandwich.   A good 800 calories. 

Progress as of today: 24.6 lbs lost so far, only 1.4 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 07/03/2021:
I think I will get on the bike today too.....raining here so no outside.

Jacky82020 on 07/03/2021:
Over an inch of rain here yesterday. And much cooler. Down to 60.


bearcountrygg on 07/03/2021:
It sure doesn't seem like July....

Jacky82020 on 07/03/2021:
I know! But it did last week! Turned on AC for 2 nights because my French Bulldog kept panting.


Horn_of_plenty on 07/03/2021:
Happy Saturday! it's a lovely weekend here, not hot at all by summer standards! so i'm enjoying the A/C off and studying on the couch! :) have a nice day with your coffee.

i decided to add a brown banana into my cup of cold coffee! blended them together - the banana was also nice and cool as i had it in the fridge. was fun. not filling, but tasty.

Jacky82020 on 07/03/2021:
Interesting, the coffee & banana. I really like frozen slices because the syrup coats each slice. Bet coffee syrup would work, but never had any, since I use it to flavor coffee


Donkey on 07/03/2021:
I can't believe it's July already - what the heck happened to June???

It's gonna get hot over here this weekend - right now it's nice - so I'm anticipating having to turn on the AC and shut up the house, sometime later today :-(

Looks like you got to enjoy your treat without too much damage to the scale - I know you worked really hard to keep it that way. This diet stuff ain't easy...

Jacky82020 on 07/03/2021:
Yep, it sure ain’t easy. I actually weighed the last banana then forgot to do a calorie check. 123 gms.

They say I have dysthymia, low grade chronic depression that has descended to clinical depression a few times. I shun psychotropic meds, other than the small dose Xanax I use as a sleep aid. Considering losing it because I’m still pissed off about the urine test. This woman at Quest lab had me remove my mask & she shined a flashlight in my mouth. LOL. If I wanted to conceal whiz, I’d put it where they’d need a gyno or proctologist to find it. This low dose pill, which I cut in half, is only of marginal use.


bearcountrygg on 07/03/2021:
Your sandwiches look really good...did you make those from raw thighs? Were they a prepared chicken from the freezer? How long did you cook them in the air fryer......??

Jacky82020 on 07/03/2021:
They are frozen boneless chicken breasts. Raw. I did buy some frozen skinless thighs for later. Think I got the calories down to 350. The fast food ones are 700. The Mayo based sauce on the store ones makes it better. I don’t keep Mayo in the house. Looked at a few recipes and it was one egg, a few other things and a full cup of oil. Plan is to investigate low cal Mayo.

Cooked 20 min at 400. Four of them.

Jacky82020 on 07/03/2021:
I dipped them in a beaten egg and coated with panko crumbs, garlic & onion powder and paprika. And sprayed with oil.


Donkey on 07/03/2021:
O.M.G. - Air fried buns - never would have thought about it. Game changer!!!

Jacky82020 on 07/03/2021:
Love it. Easier than using a toaster or my electric frying pan.


bearcountrygg on 07/03/2021:
They do look good...I will try that...i don;t have panko...but I do have some italian crumbs...that should work...the buns are looking delish!!

Jacky82020 on 07/03/2021:
Other breadcrumbs should work. I thought panko was a brand at first, then I saw Walmart has a generic. I bought the generic and a name brand, tasted the same.

Yeah, the AF is a quick easy way to toast the buns, I used it last week for some Hawaiian sweet bread hot dog buns. Last time I used the electric frying pan to brown buns, I forgot them and they burned. Ate them anyway, but too dark


Horn_of_plenty on 07/04/2021:
AWESOME, spectacular job on those sandwiches! they look even better than takeout, in my opinion! homemade is almost always best !!!!

nice job!!!

i also think air frying the buns is quite tasty!!!!! :)

Jacky82020 on 07/04/2021:
Thanks, I’d still like to figure out a mayonnaise like dressing that isn’t all oil.


Horn_of_plenty on 07/04/2021:
i would totally eat those! tasty tasty tasty!

Jacky82020 on 07/04/2021:
They were! Thanks. Usually don’t eat breakfast but got hungry early because I woke up at 4. Heated the last 1/2 sandwich in the microwave. Yummy!


Horn_of_plenty on 07/05/2021:
avocado on top instead of mayo? or buffalo sauce or bbq would be less calories than mayo prob

Jacky82020 on 07/05/2021:
Hell no! Want something low in fat. But I do love avocados. Looked at some fat free zero cal Mayo substitutes online. They had ghastly reviews! Ppl said too sweet and runny. I’m after the Mayo based sauce Popeye and BK uses, but with far less fat,

 Pretty much salt & calorie free.   I put a heaping teaspoon of the bullion in a big mug of hot water & add hot sauce & malt vinegar.

 

yay!   a new bar on the graph! 
lots of rain, thunder & lightening here,  but much cooler.

Progress as of today: 24.8 lbs lost so far, only 1.2 lbs to go!

horn_of_plenty on 07/01/2021:
nice job on 6 months of maintenance.

Jacky82020 on 07/01/2021:
Thank! You too!


horn_of_plenty on 07/01/2021:
i should have said 8 months maintenance of around the same weight for you :)

Jacky82020 on 07/01/2021:
Hard to remember. All I know is I joined DD 82020. Often choose date for user name to make it unique


Donkey on 07/01/2021:
I can't help but think you must be very pleased with your graph as it looks now. It shows that you have worked to get those numbers closer to goal -- WAY TO GO!

Jacky82020 on 07/01/2021:
Thanks, Donkey! It’s an ongoing effort. Shocked to recently read 74% of American adults are overweight and 35% of kids. Numbers keep getting worse. So unhealthy. Feel sorry for the kids, shame on those ignorant parents!


horn_of_plenty on 07/01/2021:
your drink looks like a good colon cleanser too! it'd make me poop. if it had salt, i'd prob poop more.. sometimes i poop after a salty soup. maybe it's just because it's hot liquid and prob not the salt that's making me poop i realize.

Jacky82020 on 07/01/2021:
I wish! No laxative effect. But hydrates, helps control appetite & tastes good


horn_of_plenty on 07/01/2021:
really 74% of americans. wow. didn't realize it was that high already. scary. even i am not considered really thin by BMI standards!

Jacky82020 on 07/01/2021:
I’m in the normal range. Isn’t < 18 underweight? Think 18-25 is normal, >25-30 is overweight & >30 is obese. Inaccurate for some muscular ppl, but good indicator for most. Not sure if they breakdown the normal range.


Donkey on 07/02/2021:
I had my bullion mug yesterday with only 2 cubes, and so it wasn't as salty (and so not as yummy) but yummy enough, still. I will have to check with husband to see if he has malt vinegar in his stash. I prefer lemon or lime in my chicken broth -- it's a childhood memory -- so I've been adding that to my mugs.

But the hot sauce would be much better than pepper flakes (for more even distribution of hotness). And I completely agree with getting the sodium free option. I just have to get some.

Jacky82020 on 07/02/2021:
Never tried lemon juice, but have a bottle in fridge so will try. Sounds good to me.

This is the fat cat relaxing with the husband.  

Weight stable today after 2 pds down & 2 pds up.   I need to move the bariatric scale in the Cat Room.   Keep bumping into it when I turn on the air purifier & it says "hello" in a really creepy voice, followed by "I'm ready."   

Progress as of today: 24.8 lbs lost so far, only 1.2 lbs to go!

Donkey on 06/30/2021:
There's the basis for a horror film screenplay in that statement.

Jacky82020 on 06/30/2021:
Now that you mentioned it, I did see a Chucky -like toy hiding in the corner! Lol


Donkey on 06/30/2021:
In all seriousness, good to see a stabilization in the numbers for now. I predict you'll be due for another drop in a bit.

Jacky82020 on 06/30/2021:
Thanks for the vote of confidence. I’m thinking of giving up my beloved tiny bags of M&Ms. been doing 5 bags on average. 350 Cals total. All fat and sugar and goodness.


horn_of_plenty on 06/30/2021:
is the bariatric scale very heavy or just made of good material ? get hubby's assistance if you need, LOL!?

what a creepy scale ;)

Jacky82020 on 06/30/2021:
So, I went back three screens and see DD in the usual format now. answer in another post re scale.


Horn_of_plenty on 06/30/2021:
you have a good looking hubs! is that really your hubby and fat cat!? huge cat compared to my GPs!

Jacky82020 on 06/30/2021:
Naw, I’m lying. LOL


Horn_of_plenty on 06/30/2021:
well that makes sense about tthe talking scale. i never put 2&2 together!

Jacky82020 on 06/30/2021:
That scale needs a muting operation

I should just get a new one and let Matt take that back to the garage

Walmart has been fiddling with their online order placement for curbside pickup and it's getting worse.   IT should have left it alone!   Much trouble placing order.   Was almost ready to fold, but didn't went to relinquish the 5% back from the Walmart Capitol One CC.  Before you could simply add your items to the cart, but now they show dozens of similar items.  Also show everything you've pirichased for the last century.  Very annoying! 

 DD acting weird!   tried to respond to HoP's commment & my last post pops up, different appearance than usual, without the ability to respond.

Anyways, the bariatric scale is big & heavy duty, weighs up to 700 pds.   The husband is able to Jack up his project car and place one tire at a time on it to weigh the vehicle.   it was not being used now, so he put it in the Cat Room because I'm monitoring the fat cat's weight.  It is also sensitive to .2 pds.

Progress as of today: 24.8 lbs lost so far, only 1.2 lbs to go!

horn_of_plenty on 06/30/2021:
that is one very heavy scale, jacky!

Jacky82020 on 06/30/2021:
Must be it talks because those 600 pd plus ppl can’t see over their humongous guts.

I know the guy who weighed 467 in My Big Fat Greek Diet stepped on 2 scales to get his weight and said his brother had to read the numbers because he couldn’t see them


happy-1 on 06/30/2021:
That's one fat cat!

Weight: 109.0

 Weight stable after 2 pds up and 2 pds down.
 

Had  air fry chicken & potato wedge & stir fried Normandy Blend vegetables.  Tried these garlic and Italian herb breadcrumbs instead of the panko this time. Yum!   they browned very nicely! Also used parchment paper to eliminate sticking to the wire rack. Worked!

 

This is my new electric fry pan.   very easy to clean, just like the air fryer. 
N

 

 

 

So predictably the missing 2 pds from yesterday returned.   I'm due for a big Trump, I mean Dump, so maybe better luck tomorrow.   it's all good.   Never had a specific number as a weight goal.   Always a range.

Progress as of today: 25 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

Donkey on 06/29/2021:
JACKY -- HA HA HA HA!!!!! I nearly choked on my coffee reading your entry. HA HA HA!!!!

Well, I'm sorry the scale went up but maybe that's to be expected (?) - that is to say a swing-swing back and forth, a little, until your numbers settle at the lower end.

I hear ya -- I had bathroom issues last week. Every once in a while things just don't move as regularly as they should.

PS Your weight graph is looking great!

Jacky82020 on 06/29/2021:
Thanks. I keep the goal number unrealistically low to make the graph look better. I know that’s kinda dumb, but I don’t like the flat bars.


bearcountrygg on 06/29/2021:
If you keep hovering at a number...it will eventually stay there...or at least that is what happens with me......I plateau at certain numbers it seems no matter what I do...and have to finally do something really drastic to move them...I'm going on a liquid fast for about 5 days in July.....I still get the same amt of calories...but it works for me.

Jacky82020 on 06/29/2021:
How many calories are in your liquid fast? I see some with 600. Not exactly what I’d call a fast, but I can’t do it. Never could. My best dieting days are eating around 1200 and burning half (exercise)


horn_of_plenty on 06/29/2021:
a weight range is the way to go! for sure! :)

it happens!

Jacky82020 on 06/29/2021:
Yep, anything else has to inaccurate


horn_of_plenty on 06/29/2021:
and it's got to happen...we are human and not robots sticking to the same exact weight per day. too many things in fluctuation! :)

have a nice "trump!"

Jacky82020 on 06/29/2021:
LOL

Hoping to LEAVE one. All this protein is binding. And I am sick of stir fried cabbage.


horn_of_plenty on 06/29/2021:
there's a lot more veggies than cabbage....branch out!!!! you can make zucchini chips if you like that sort of thing..in your air fryer... you can also do mashed cauliflower...instead of potatoes....let's go!

Jacky82020 on 06/29/2021:
I am big on the Normandy Blend: cauliflower. Broccoli, carrots, zucchini and yellow squash. Came out mushy in the AF, so back to stir frying with a little spray. On tonight’s menu along with AF chicken breasts & potatoe wedges. Got a pretty new turquoise electric skillet that is really easy to clean for the vegetables


horn_of_plenty on 06/29/2021:
why not have sauteed spinach for a change? or collard greens (though not everyone likes those.....)

Jacky82020 on 06/29/2021:
Sounds like work! Just heat frozen in the microwave. Not big on any greens except spinach.


bearcountrygg on 06/29/2021:
The calories on the 5 days i do liquids only are really the same as when i eat......It isn't about calories at that point...it's basically a total clean out....and i feel great afterwards. I drink juices, coffee, tea, broth, eat jello and popsicles, anything that is liquid...9 I do try to stay away from protein drinks and V8.....but do use a lot of fruit juices........

Jacky82020 on 06/29/2021:
I’ve been meaning to try all liquid too, but always blow it. I’d do protein drinks, bullion, ice tea and sodas. But I want the little M&M bags or rice cakes with cream cheese and jam at night. Never cared for fruit juice. The husband drinks orange juice everyday, but I never touch it.


Donkey on 06/30/2021:
I would be interested in hearing about your cooking adventures using the electric frying pan. I recall my grandmother having one of these - not nearly as pretty, avocado green, I believe.

Jacky82020 on 06/30/2021:
I’ve used one for years. The last was Teflon coated, wearing away, and starting to stick. I feel the temperature settings give me more control than a stovetop. I’ve been stir frying that Normandy Blend for everything eons. Also cook hamburgers, steaks & polish sausages etc in it. When you’re done, you can use the Warm setting until you’re ready to serve. Good for meatballs too.

They use a “ceramic” coating these days. Super easy to clean. I sure hope it wears well.

Jacky82020 on 06/30/2021:

Weight: 107.2

 
 

FOR LEGS!

 

Shockingly dropped 2 pds overnight & wondering if something's wrong with the Fitbit scale.  Changed the batteries last qwek.   Will make sure I hydrate lots today.   My goal is actually 108-112. Did not weigh myself often when younger, often no scale in the house.   So always thought of my weight in ranges; 100-105, 105-108 and so on.   Can recall hitting 112 around the time I met the husband in graduate school & hitting the track & watching my diet.

Progress as of today: 26.8 lbs lost so far, only -0.8 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 06/28/2021:
You met your goal and surpassed it!!!!! Isn't it funny how when something like that happens unexpectedly how we are shocked and figure something is wrong? I remember a lady at Weight watchers years ago who when she lost weight and discovered her collar bone...she thought she was sick.....until the leader reminded her that she has been dieting. I agree....you may have lost some water weight and always should drink plenty of water anyway so that is always a good idea no matter what. But YOU DID IT!!!!! Congrats!!!!

Jacky82020 on 06/28/2021:
Hey! Thanks, Bear! But I truly expect to find see at least some of that two pounds back soon. It’s too big a loss for me overnight. It’s not like I took a huge dump or anything. LOL I have to struggle to lose 1 pound a week.

I don’t drink much water. Coffee & ice tea mostly. Really like the Lipton diet mixed berry green tea, I should check the caffeine level, but doubt it’s much. Also like diet ginger ale, root beer & dr. pepper. All those beverages must be 99% water.


bearcountrygg on 06/28/2021:
They are liquids....the pops contain sodium which will make you hold fluids......I always figure that 4 pounds in any direction id okay....and normal....they can easily be water weight..or what we ate......so I agree...you may go up a little..or even down a little...but you got there and now the real fun begins....!!!!

Jacky82020 on 06/28/2021:
I’m gonna check the sodium levels in my soda!


bearcountrygg on 06/28/2021:
They will be high I'm sure.......The only low sodium one I know of is Diet Rite.....and the one with the safest artificial sweetener may be Zevia.....at least that is what I hear.

Jacky82020 on 06/28/2021:
They were higher than I’d like, but not ghastly, ranged from 75-180 gm per 17 oz bottle. Checked my hi protein chocolate drink. It’s 280 per 11 oz container. Salt everywhere!

Jacky82020 on 06/28/2021:
I don’t like colas, except at fast food places where usually cola is the only diet drink


horn_of_plenty on 06/28/2021:
wow that sure is VIBING out of my screen! thanks for the positivity...


horn_of_plenty on 06/28/2021:
maybe you also eliminated sodium mostly...that could also cause a drop...unless it causes you to poop also...sometimes after high sodium food i poop.

Jacky82020 on 06/28/2021:
I’m chronically constipated, bigly sad! Considering taking 2 Alli a day as it helps. Also need to get back to Fiber One. Best fiber source.. .


Horn_of_plenty on 06/28/2021:
i like kombucha. ... as you know it's expensive. they sell less expensive probiotic mixes in the supermarkets for a little cheaper, powders to add to water. low cal....

i prefer my kombucha.

def the PRObiotic is better than the prebiotic.

prebiotics will deconstipate you, too, but they cause me diarhhea.

Jacky82020 on 06/28/2021:
Kombucha was not expensive for me. Easy to make, tasted like store bought. Especially after Bear gave me the idea to enhance with flavored carbonated water. It was ok, but I prefer regular iced tea and soda. It was fun at first to watch the creepy SCOBY grow. Looked like The Blob! All the cats and dogs were screaming!

 Are a lot yesterday, but exercised a lot, but even so was surprised to see a drop this AM.   Probably a hydration issue.   Will focus more on liquids today. It's been warm here!   Saw the first fireflies of the season last night & they were awesome!

Donkey on 06/27/2021:
I haven't seen fireflies here yet. Also, my tiger lilies haven't budded yet, much less blossomed (although others in the area have). I feel like we're a little behind here, maybe because of the recent drought (which has since been reconciled).

Getting SO CLOSE to goal!!!!

Jacky82020 on 06/27/2021:
So are you! I think I have in a big advantage over most ppl in not working outside the house.

It was more difficult to maintain my weight when I taught school. Even though I took the trolley which involved long walks up and down this big hill that led to the football stadium


Horn_of_plenty on 06/27/2021:
I LOVE the glowing eyes of your two black cats!

I'm always scared of fireflies up close because they flutter and are so dark and creepy looking. but i do love their little fires!

Jacky82020 on 06/27/2021:
I’ve only ever seen their flashing butts at night. Never could locate one. It’s magical. Like tiny fairies dancing

Back in my fast weight loss mode, like when I steadily lost a pound a week when I joined DD on 8/20/20 and lost >20 pds in ~5 months.   I can only lose a pound  a week at my best. For me, this involves eating a normal amount of calories for my size and burning off 600 per day, or restricting calories to ~ 800 a day.   neither is easy!   and I have many off days.   my daily weigh in keeps me in check.   those pounds can creep up quickly & require constant vigilance.   for me, that is.

Here's a pic of my two black cats.   the former feral is in the background.   unfortunately, the flash scared him and I couldn't take a better photo.

Progress as of today: 24.2 lbs lost so far, only 1.8 lbs to go!

Beautiful kitties! Former Feral looks like my boy cat. He's afraid of mops and doorbells.

Way to go to break 110!!! You are right - neither is easy. As we get older, too, it gets hard and requires consistent vigilance, like you say. If you lose a pound a week, where you're at, that's almost 1% body weight every week. That's remarkable.

Actually I started at 134, so it was .07%. At first, anyways. I’d have to really starve myself & fast to lose more than a pound a week. I have known ppl who lost 10 pds or more a month, but they were heavy to begin with. I never got much past 140, but that’s too fat, considering I’m barely 5’1” . I did look like a little bottle butt

Weight: 110.4

 


 This is another Cat Cam pic.   Tha former feral is just out of view on the loveseat with the pink sheet.   it's a lot of fun watching him groom & play with the fat one on the big table.

Been eating more lately, but compensating by LOTS of exercise.  Most of the "steps" are from the bike,but I did an hour on the treadmill.   Plus hit the gym.   Can't maintain this pace everyday, so I need to focus more on keeping my pie hole shut.

 

Progress as of today: 23.6 lbs lost so far, only 2.4 lbs to go!

I'm in a similar spot, emotionally. Can't say I've been eating more, but I want to, and I think the root of that might be fatigue. Anyway, I can relate. (((hugs)))

Do you think one thing that’s making me eat more is all that exercise?

I’m back to drinking big mugs of chicken bullion with hot sauce & vinegar days, but am eating too much nights. I just took two half pound hamburgers out of the freezer & some ciabatta buns. It’s all I can think about! Usually eat a half and the husband has 1.5 burgers.

Yeah...food....if we were cave people we would eat some days...and not others...we would be doing a lot of walking....finding berries etc...then the occasional animal which would fill us up fast......but nope....we have to only walk to the kitchen.....no wonder it's such a battle. We are really set up to fail.

ikr? And getting boxes and boxes of Amazon subscription snacks isn’t helping any. But the price is right. I’m glad I finally thought of 5 items to buy that qualified for the 15% off.

Only got one thing on Prime Day & turns out to have been their most popular deal. It was a $50 gift card for $40.

Still pissed off that my fries didn’t brown in the rotating AF basket. I did soak them in cold water in the fridge as recommended.

Did you dry them off and oil?...I found with the shrimp that I just had to keep them in longer.
