Weight: 261.2

Good morning all

Having a good day.  Yesterday was real good - water 11 glasses and food on track.  This Monday I started again the scarsdale diet plan (just in case you guys dont remember this diet is two weeks on two weeks off with just maintenance).  Even after only one day I really feel good.  I don't know if you guys are the same as me but I can actually feel when I have lost some weight from the day before.  My weigh-in is far away plus I do have my dinner out this Thursday so it is good that today I am feeling this way.  I do intend to behave on my night out.  No way am I going to blow it.  My wellbeing is worth much more than a night out. 

I enjoy checking in and seeing all the wonderful progress you all are doing or the up and downs.  It reassures me that I am not along struggling through this process.  I am not the odd ball person with a major defect of not being able to control my eating. 

The food is going well don't really know if it is my mindset or if it is just the fact that my body is cleaning itself out of all the toxic food that I had been feeding it.  Actually at this point I really don't want to question it - if it works why should I even look for a reason.  I could not have done this without all of you.

I still cannot do much exercise except the house stuff and the outings to do errands - so it is not because of the exercise.  I read your write-ups and see all the exercise you guys do and feel lazy but my knee health is worth more than trying to overdo it.  I do wonder though how I am going to tone this body or will I end up with a lot of flab - well more flab. LOL LOL The main thing right now is getting myself onto healtier eating habits.  One thing at a time.

OK this is enough of my babbling.  I wish you all a good day.  Will write later on your personal blogs.

glad things r going well :) u r doing amazing!! have a great day!


skinnygrlwithin on 02/12/2013:
Just wanted to check in after our first day of our challenge!! Glad to see all is going well. And no you're not alone in this struggle... it amazes me time and time again when I speak to women that I see as attractive, skinny and beautiful, and the doubt and pain that they suffer ... all for the same reasons I feel every day. I think I've decided that part of this journey is not only about the losing weight and being healthy... it's about working on being happy with yourself...always, regardless of how you look. That's the most important..and unfortunately in my opinion the hardest.


getmebackto150 on 02/12/2013:
I totally can feel when I've lost some weight... I feel lighter and/or tighter... Its great! have a good one:)


Supercheese on 02/12/2013:
OOH i can totally feel when ive lost weight....also when Ive gained weight too LOL. You are definitely not alone. Im staring at the chocolate on the work kitchen table and im just thinking "no! dont do it!"


OhioRaven on 02/12/2013:
Nope, not alone.

Yep, you're probably the odd-ball.(just kidding) :v)

Yep, healthier is better.


OhioRaven on 02/12/2013:
Have a good one.


legcramps on 02/12/2013:
Healthier is definitely better :) good for you for taking it one thing at a time.

grannyannie on 02/12/2013:
You are doing great and have the right attitude. Hope you're able to get in some exercise but don't risk your knee. What about swimming?

No, you're definitely not alone. We've all been there or are still there.


legcramps on 02/12/2013:
RYC - I really am so upset with this knee issue; never thought i'd have to worry about these things so early in life. Well, I guess i'm in my mid-thirties so time to wake up maybe :) I *hope* golfing will be okay; I didn't seem to have a problem with my swing - but of course, my knee didn't hurt through golfing, but afterwards it did. Only sometimes does it hurt when I have to twist. I don't know. It's driving me batty!


Umpqua on 02/12/2013:
What a great attitude and positive entry! And congrats on your recent loss while I was away :)


grannyannie on 02/12/2013:
RYC sorry about your knee. What about upper body exercises? Dumbbells, etc?


grannyannie on 02/12/2013:
LOL. Doesn't matter where the weight is. It would be better than nothing since building muscle anywhere makes you burn calories more efficiently. Isn't cardio, but it's something.


lolla on 02/12/2013:
you are doing great!

Good Morning All

It is weigh-in time - I lost 2.6 pounds this week.  I still have far to go but I am on the right track. I start my 5th week this Monday and I am encouraged.  My water is on track had 11 glasses yesterday.  My food was good also yesterday.  My 9:00 pm craving seems to be subsiding.  It is definitely a time of experimenting with different thing to see what works for me at this time. 

I am also grateful for all of you and all of your comments and encouragement.  This site is wonderful. 

This week is my first time that I have to step out for dinner with my main squeeze for Valentine's Day.  I have made up my mine to be very prudent as to my selection of restaurants and I am also familiar with their menu - so I feel good about the outcome of this outing into a non-controlled area.  I think that my mind is getting ready for all the nonoo that will be available out there and I am building up my resistance to it all.  Better to be ready than to get there and be tempted.

Needless to say I am happy with the outcome of last week.  Today I start week 5 and I feel stronger about my conviction and determination to attain my goal.  There isn't anything that taste better then the way I feel right now.  

Thank you all.

Talk to you later .

thenewMLE on 02/11/2013:
Congrats on your loss and the progress you have made! Knowing the menu and having decided before you get there is very wise and that way you can feel good about your selection! I will get that water thing under control one day, really I will! I drank NO water all weekend and I feel it. I had leg and foot issues over night both nights and it wasn't until I read your entry that I realized I forgot the da** water! Have a great week and I hope you have a magical Valentine's day!


grannyannie on 02/11/2013:
You're doing great! Keep up the good work. My biggest battle is nightime snacking. I tried not to snack after dinner but it didn't work. So I allow myself a snack in the early evening - by 8pm and try to keep it under 200 cals.


getmebackto150 on 02/11/2013:
Congrats on the weight loss!!! Keep it up:)


skinnygrlwithin on 02/11/2013:
It sounds like you've been doing really well... I'm very glad to have you along with me on my 68 day challenge. Yes, my goal is 18 pounds by April 19th... please feel free to set a different weight goal if you'd like... but yes... lets do this together!!!


lolla on 02/11/2013:
YEY YEY YEY!!! Great job! Great loss! You can totally do this all the way!

Good morning all.

Good day.  Water is good 11 glasses.  Food was good did not exceed - great feeling.

Really tired today did not get much sleep last night - don't know why just could not get to sleep slept about three and half hours.  I will probably have a few naps today.  I have to be careful not to sleep to much and end up with another night of no sleep. 

Apart from that.  All is good.  Will talk to you guys later.

Have a great day.

Weigh-in tomorrow . Looking forward to that.

Hey, Puddy. Good to hear from you. Good luck to both of us on our weigh-ins. I wonder how many more of us weigh-in on Monday ?

Good afternoon all

I am late at posting today but I have been busy.  I dusted, cleaned, washed floors etc etc... and now it is time to start drinking my water for the day. 

Yesterday was a great day - 11 glasses of water - used my new schedule for my meals again and it seems to be working.  I will do it again for another few days and see if I can keep on doing that or if the evening munchies will come back. 

Our weather has been really good for the past two day.  Sunshine really adds a lot to my day.  I dont mind staying in when we have sunshine.  I am so looking forward to Spring.  

I got a call from my grandson - he wanted to tell me that his parents where painting is room and that he had picked the colours.  Blue and green.  Now that will be interesting and not light blue and green but dark blue and green.  Oh well it is his room after all.  My son told him he had to live with it for at least 3 yrs even if he does not like it after it is done.  LOL LOL - Kids are so funny.

I am looking forward to moving back to that area this summer the grandkids are starting to question why are you not arround.  It is time for me to get closer.  

Anyway that is all for me today.  All is good - no complaints.  You all have a great weekend.

RYC Thanks! Have an amazing weekend.


hollybelle on 02/09/2013:
Your day sounds like mine....cleaning all day - and not finished. My house was horrible. Tomorrow I just have to steam the hardwoods and shine them up a little and a bit more general stuff. Whew! Stick with the plan - you are doing well.

Yayy for sunshine :) Hope the rest of your weekend is stellar <3

Good Morning All

Wonderful day.  It is fantastic Friday.  I had a real good day yesterday.  Water is on track 10 glasses.  Food was perfect.  The 9:00 pm problem was not part of my day yesterday.  I tried something different.  I have changed the hours of my meals.  Since I am retired eating meals can be at whatever hours I wish them to be.  I had breakfast at 10:30 - Lunch at 3:00 pm and Supper 8:00 pm and put bedtime back to 12:00.  That gives me enough time after my last meal to digest.  This experiment was to see if my 9:00 pm problem would show up at 11:00 and it did not.  I will try it again today.  It is all about test and error/finding out what works and does not work.  I am feeling very optimistic about this.  I am a optimistic person anyway.

WOW what a year for snow.  It has snowed here for the past 5 days.  I am not saying that it was lots of snow but just enough to accumulate 4 or 5 inches of snow on top of my car.  Today they are calling for sun - what is that sun. LOL

I have tried a new recipe yesterday.  It seems that I have to get real creative with my cooking.  I should have been borned italian.  I so love tomatoe sauces and anything speghatti ish.  Last night supper was chicken (broiled) tomatoes (used can stewed tomatoes original seasoning) and one of my favorite veg is cabbage (pre-cooked it shreded).  Mixed it all together and let it simmer so that the stewed tomatoe taste got into the chicken and the cabbage.  It was so delicious.  (510 cal and 9gr fat only).

I try to keep my gr of fat around 20 to 30 a day.  My calories around 1200 - 1400 a day.  My carb between 70 to 100 a day.   If I keep those figures in check I loose weight.  There is a little bit of flexibility but not much.  I know what works and does not for me.  

Well I have gone on enough now.  Thank you all for your comments and support.  You help me get through my day.  Talk to you later.

That dish sounds Yummy :P I sure hope that you guys get a break from the snow, geez 5 days straight? Happy Friday Fran :)


thenewMLE on 02/08/2013:
Your chicken dish sounds great!! I love broiled tomatoes. I take fresh tomatoes and slice them and put a small amount of pepper jack cheese on them and put them in the snack oven to bake until golden or broil until bubbly. I put eat them by themselves or with an egg on top. Playing with your meal times seems like a good idea if you are flexible. Hope you have a nice weekend!


legcramps on 02/08/2013:
That chicken dish sounds delicious! Way to get creative in the kitchen :)

I agree that it is all about experimenting with different food, different eating times, trial and error. Good job working with your body and figuring out when is the best time for you to eat! Good luck today :)


OhioRaven on 02/08/2013:
You know what ? ? ? I'm gonna try that ! Sounds good to me.

Good morning all

All is good here.  I drank 11 glasses of water yesterday WOW how surprising that was - from having a hard time putting one down to 11.  It is amazing that once you put your mind at work on getting something done everything falls into place. 

I dont feel as if I have lost anymore weight but my weigh-in is only next Monday morning.  Although I do feel I have not put any on.  It is definitely going to be a longer process then I expected.  Not as fast last last time I did this.  Of course that was 15 yrs ago.  Maybe age as something to do with it and also that I am not as active as I use to be.

I am looking forward to spring and getting outside more  for walks.  It really scares me to go for walks right now because of the snow and ice.  I certainly do not need a slip resulting in hurting myself or breaking something.  I also love to go to the driving range even though I cant go and play golf because of my knee I can go and hit the ball - mind you my swing is not as good because I am very carefull not to twist my knee like I use to in old swing (I am no Tiger Woods).  It is exercise and it does get me out of the house.

Today I wan to re-look at my food selection.  I still have not had any sugars, white stuff (flour, white bread, pasta of anykind, rice etc etc) that has been easy enough to give up and I think that my sugar craving as finally subsided.  I have to admit that I did not find it all that bad to give up the white stuff and sugars.  It might just be the fact that I was ready for that move to a better life.  

I still had my 9:00 pm problem yesterday but had cantaloupe and yogurt.  I know that the selection of what I had is good but I would love to be able to eliminate that extra need I have.  

Anyway guys I wish you all a very good day.

supercheese on 02/07/2013:
your food selection sounds great!! Yay for the good 9pm selection!!!


thenewMLE on 02/07/2013:
It really does get easier once the sugar cravings let up. I gave up the sugar and white stuff a little over a year ago. The weight loss was gradual (which is good) but my energy level showed the biggest improvement. The 3 weeks of withdrawal I couldn't even see that I was making any progress, but once my head was clear then I realized I was eating healthier and feeling healthier. Spring is a great time for increasing your exercise, but one thing at a time - get your food plan together and get it so that it becomes a habit. You can do this!!! Wow on the water - that's my challenge right now! Have a great day!


getmebackto150 on 02/07/2013:
Great job on the water!!! I agree, losing weight definitely gets much harder with age!! Have a great day:)


OhioRaven on 02/07/2013:
Wow ! Good post all the way round. Try a grapefruit or 2 at night. It lowers my BP and fills me up. Maybe you can go to a short par 3 (pitch and pitt) and play there ?


hollybelle on 02/07/2013:
Awesome post and thank you for your comments on my diary. Keep up the good work! You are so on the right track. Don't weight too often. The loss will show up and you might be more relaxed - it's just numbers! LOL! I only say this because it drives me nuts to weigh. Everyone must find out what works for them. You are exactly right when you say it's gamble buying a new car when you have had a good one for so long - that is exactly why I am reluctant! My husband has had 3 or 4 since I bought mine!


V on 02/07/2013:
Great job on the water :) Your 9pm snack was healthy so no worries..I always have a 10 pm lf cottage cheese and fresh blueberry snack or a casein shake..Hope you had a wonderful day!


biscottibody59 on 02/07/2013:
All credit to you for sticking with your plan!:-)!

Keep up the good work--I hope as you slim down your prospects for moving around (golfing, etc) will increase!


niftyjack on 02/08/2013:
11 glasses? That's amazing!

Also, re:sauce. The recipe called for 1/4 teaspoon (1.25ml) grated ginger, 1 (5ml) teaspoon soy sauce, 1/2 (7.5ml) tablespoon marmalade, 1 (15ml) tablespoon ketchup. I hope that's helpful.

Good morning all

Yesterday was a good day but not as good as the day before.  The good part is that I was able to drink 10 glasses of water.  I was actually thirsty.  I am rarely thirsty just something that does not happy to me too often. 

The only problem I encountered was my 9:00 pm hunger pangs.  So that resulted into more strawberries and yogurt and then some cottage cheese.  The only difference from before my plan is that these cravings where filled with cookies or ice cream or chips or etc etc.... we all know the indulgences into all the bad foods we use to eat.  Anyway that was yesterday and I will try to have a better evening today.  That is definitely my biggest problem the evening munchies.  It seems I become the bottomless pitt at 9:00.  It is not because I am hungry.  I am not beating myself up over this I am just disappointed in the fact that I am having a hard time getting rid of this bad habit.

Today is and will be a good day.  The sun is not out but it will be a sunny day in my mind.  I refuse to let this get me down.  I know I will have many bumps in my journey and I expect to have bumps but my shock absorbers are good.  Pick up and keep on going.  The alternative is just not a worth what I want anymore. 

For today:  I will set myself up to win.

I so enjoy and appreciate all of your input.  I will report back tomorrow.  Good or bad.

Progress as of today: 16.4 lbs lost so far, only 83.8 lbs to go!

You did great yesterday, even during your 9pm bottomless pit episode ;) choosing healthy foods over junk food is a great accomplishment and something you should be proud of yourself for doing, instead of thinking you did something wrong.

Hey, Puddy. Don't let those potato chips through your front door. That's not who we are now. I'm sure the grandkids will forgive you if you offer them an apple instead of having chips around the house...Or BigPickles :v)


supercheese on 02/06/2013:
oooooooo i know those 9pm hunger pangs all too well....those are my weekness!!


supercheese on 02/06/2013:
LMAO men = problems! jk (-looks for hubby around the corner - ) What I do is have a small protein/carb snack. Usually apple/peanut butter (but im trying to stop the PB since i usually go overboard)....or greek yogurt w/ honey, air popcorn, almonds and grapes. ALWAYS leave the bag or main dish in the fridge and place whatever I have in a small cup. I also make sure my hands are busy....but that usually helps :)also having tea works too! sometimes, but eating slowly at night is a challenge im working on too....its tough!


supercheese on 02/06/2013:
Popcorn = get kernels. Do you have a glass microwavable bowl with a lid? Plop in some and nuke it. A cup = 30 calories. SO much healtheir....You can add youre own spices too!


supercheese on 02/06/2013:
^ I try to never get the store kind because 1) extra calories that are stupid 2) Expensive. Hope that helps!


supercheese on 02/06/2013:
Yep. I usually do a quarter cup. I do it for 2-3 minutes until the popping is pretty much done. Youll be surprised how you dont need any oil whatsoever. I also put some salt free (mrs. dash) italian spices on it and it tastes amazing!


V on 02/06/2013:
Not sure if this will help you but before I reached my goal weight(actually I still follow the same rule) I treat my kitchen just like a restaurant, kitchen closed after dinner..Nothing wrong with having a pre bedtime snack as long as it doesn't manifest into a full meal.. Cottage cheese is a great late evening snack/dessert..Hope you have a stellar evening :)

Good morning

Had a wonderful day.  My water is on track and my food was excellent yesterday.  Got all my errand done.  The house is full of the foods that are good for me now.  The strawberries where on sale.  How I miss my February Strawberry Festival in Florida.  Next year I am hoping to be back to my routine of spending my Winter down there.  I could not take a chance for the past two Winters with my knee condition.

I have been counting my fat grams and my carb grams in each day on each item I eat.  Since I am doing a low carb low fat plan does anybody know what does numbers should be for a day.  How many carbs and how many fats are considered low for intake on a daily basis.  

Right now my fats are usually under 25 grams and my carbs are under 80 grams.   Now is that low or is that high.  They tell you everything else but they do not give you that information.  

Anyway all is good.  I am starting to feel that I might have lost some weight.  

Hope you all have a great day.  Will talk to you later.  Enjoy getting your comments.

So happy the Ravens won.  Great game.  Well guys weigh-in was not what I expected but considering I had a problem this week with the pizza night LOL I lost .4 of a pound.  Not up but not down much.  Rather have .4 of a pound down then up.  LOL.

All is good today a new day and a new week.  Glad to here everybody had a good weekend.

I have errands to run again today that is good because that is about all the exercise I do.  I seem to be at the store often because I run out of fruit and veg often.  I can only keep so much in the house and I do want them to be fresh.  It also gets me out of the house - cabine fever.  A beautiful sunny but cold day -25C.  The snow is melting off my car will wait another hour or so and it will be all gone and I wont have to clean it off.  That is the part that I dont like about Winter.

OK guys you all have a great day and a good week.

Better down that up! keep up the good work you do, the weight will come off with persistence.


INDEPENDENTEM93 on 02/04/2013:
I would take .4 down then .4 up!


thenewMLE on 02/04/2013:
Down is good!! I hope you warm up soon. I can't even imagine that kind of cold. It didn't even reach the lower 40's this year (4.5 C)but when I lived in Chicago I did experience some harsh winter! Keep those fruits and veggies around! Have a great day!

Good morning all

Super day.  This is probably because of all your support yesterday.  I greatly appreciated that.  I had a wonderful day - my water and food was right on track.  I have learned that nothing is worth enough or nothing tastes better than being abstinent from the toxic food that these craving tempt me to put in my body.

I so wish I could do workout like many of you do.  I basically am restricted to what I can do in house without anything that requires me to do several flexing of my right knee or accidentally putting my knee at an angle sideways.  It is a pain the ***. 

My evening temption was replaced by going to bed a little bit earlier than I usually do.  I did wake up several times in the night because it was definitely a longer night than usual but I had no problem falling back asleep again.  Evening is the only time I get cravings.  It does not happen in my mornings or afternoon. 

I hope you all have a great day - Super bowl day.  A lot of parties going on.  Enjoy your day.

 

Progress as of today: 16 lbs lost so far, only 84.2 lbs to go!

Toxic food cravings! I like that. On the exercise, why not google some exercise suggestions on-line for seated exercise or something that sounds like you could do? Might be interesting.....


OhioRaven on 02/03/2013:
Holly has a good idea. Hope the tea and grapefruit help :v)

I think 'toxic food cravings' is going to end up one of my verbal tics this month. Have you considered shadow boxing?


OhioRaven on 02/04/2013:
Thanks, Jack. Hope you have a good weigh in.


V on 02/04/2013:

Since my knee has been giving me trouble, I can't do my regular 30 day shred video - or at least I can't do a lot of the exercises in the video. The one that I can do, and seem to get some benefit from, is standing with feet hip width apart, and boxing. Also, I now do the pushups against a wall - doesn't work the whole core of the body, but it still works shoulders and chest.

Just a couple of suggestions in case you hadn't thought of them yet :)

So glad you had a great day :)
