(Clean eating. Calories under 2000)
Weight: 184.0

GoodMorning. 1946 cals, 102 h2o, push mowing. I was hungry yesterday. I thought I would go over on my calories but I didn't. Fast food tonight, but I don't know where. I'm kinda hoping for the KFC/TacoBell/GasStation place down the highway. Have a Healthy Day.

You did well yesterday Raven. Enjoy your evening at the fast food place. I have outgrown the fast food joints but also I have never been one for the fast food joints either so it was easy to give up completely. Last time I was at one of them was last Winter when I got a craving for a Wendy's burger about Feb I think. You are doing real good keep it up and have a great day.

hollybelle on 09/16/2015:
Good on not going over cals! Good exercise, too! Ole at Taco Bell and the Fresca Tacos - hope you can have some good choice in there somewhere!

thinkpositive on 09/16/2015:
Hi, Ohio! A good day. You are the master of finding healthy foods at fast food restaurants.

biscottibody59 on 09/16/2015:
Too bad Wendy's doesn't have that pretty awesome salad bar it used to have years ago!

GoodMorning. 1797 cals, 102 h2o, no exercise. I pulled up to the bike path and had a flat front tire. Went and got it fixed. Too late to ride. Tonight I'll be working late and then push mowing the lawn at church. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 09/15/2015:
Good morning Raven - what a bummer about the bike ride. Well you will get your exercise with the push mower. Your doing good. Have a great day.

Umpqua on 09/15/2015:
Too bad about the bike ride. RE the loose skin, it should improve with time and as you increase muscle tone. You could also try cocoa and shea butter, Vitamin E cream and other girly stuff like that if it bothers you.

ohioraven on 09/15/2015:
I just don't want to look like a shar pei puppy.

hollybelle on 09/15/2015:
I hate when I go to ride and tire is flat. Well you exercised hauling it around to get it fixed, anyway!

GoodMorning. Yep ! Down another pound. 1318 cals, 1 bottle of water, no exercise. I think I'm about ready to get into Maintenance Mode. I'm not going to anything different really. Add more Exercise comes to mind. I think I'll just level out wherever it is I'm supposed to be. I still have loose flabby skin. I'm thinking it will go away in time. Hope everyone has a good Healthy day.

biscottibody59 on 09/14/2015:
Good job!

Unfortunately loose skin doesn't all disappear without surgery, but since you've done this gradually the chances are probably better for it to shrink a bit.

You can also strengthen the underlying muscle, which will fill out some of the space left from weight loss.

puddles on 09/14/2015:
Congrats Raven So was 184 your goal. I can't remember. If you feel comfortable at this weight then that is good. Have a great week Raven.

hollybelle on 09/15/2015:
When I have lost weight in the past and had the loose skin issue - it was my experience that over time - with weight maintenance and ab exercises it gets better! Congratulations on reaching your goal!

GoodMorning. 1651 cals, 2 bottles of h2o, No exercise. I can't believe I did as good as I did with my food. I didn't want to let you guys down. Thanks for the encouragement. I had my usual breakfast at home. Skipped McDonald's, skipped the festival food, and at the picnic I had a bowl of beans, some carrots and a bowl of mixed fruit. Finished my night with some cottage cheese and popCorn. Hope today goes as well. Weigh in tomorrow. Have a Healthy Day.

horn_of_plenty on 09/13/2015:
Great calories and great choices. Veggies and fruit are always the best selections for the least calories. You will def see a decline when you step on that scale! Keep going with your positive mindset. You make me wanna make good choices today and tonight at my family dinner :)

puddles on 09/13/2015:
Good afternoon Raven. You did super well yesterday amazing how determination works. Good choices and a lot of strong will. I know you will have moved the scale tomorrow. Have a great day.

GoodMorning. 2274 cals, 102 h2o, no exercise again. I went to new place we call the HillBilly Night Club and over ate last night. It's a good place with good people. The food is kinda fattening though. I can't see getting on my bike today. I'm at 4 different places today ending with a Country music Picnic. I'll do my best to try and not over do it today. Hope everyone is good. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 09/12/2015:
Good morning Raven. It seems you are busy with your music more then before or is that my imagination. I am sure you will try hard to be good today with your food. Have a great day and enjoy.

ohioraven on 09/12/2015:
You're right, Puddy. I'm a busy boy. Ok, we'll both try to be good today. You have a great day too.

Good morning Raven - Allergies are terrible I am blessed not to have them but I have some people around me that suffer from them. So you are high today. Try to have a good day.
