(Counting Calories and Exercise)
Weight: 162.2

Good morning!! A lot to say this morning. First, yesterday was a good day! Just that little walk in the morning for exercise but I only ate 1190 calories for the day. Sis and BIL ended up cancelling for dinner, she had to take him to the ER, he had a bad seizure and he does have that brain bleed still, besides his tumor, so we all were thinking the worst again. But he called and DH talked to him and he seems to be doing okay, although they kept him over night to re-hydrate him. He just seems to be going downhill lately, not his old self any more. But we just keep praying he'll hang on. It's been over 12 years now since he's had the tumor and this brain bleed thing recently has us all worried. They say it's from his chemo so they put him on a weaker chemo for now. Poor guy, he's such a good one too! Anyway, the DH and I just grilled some chicken breasts again with long grain and wild rice (love that stuff) and veggies. Fruit salad for dessert that I had bought for the dinner with Sis and BIL. Yesterday was just a less-hungry day for me. I love those! I'm hungry now though. I'm feeling tired. I woke up just after 6am and decided it was time to get up. Also feeling kind of nauseous. I've been using the "neti pot" thing that they talked about with Dr. Oz on Oprah Monday, for cleansing the sinuses. Yep, I bought one yesterday, they are hard to find though, went to 2 Walgreen's. My sinuses are so bad lately so I will try anything and they raved so much about it Monday. I've used it 3 times so far and don't see much difference. In fact I've been sneezing so much this morning and the draining thing too. Yuck! My left knee is hurting some too, usually it's the right knee. But I have an acupucture appointment this morning at 9 and then I'm heading for the gym. I'll do as much as I can. Last night I felt great and thought I will do a really good workout today but now, not so much. But I'll try.

Have you seen all the coverage on the news about the Avandia? Well, I was taking the drug for months until I read in a book that biscottibody recommended that no one should be taking that drug! So I quit taking it. Just kept monitoring my blood sugar and trying to eat right and exercise and when I went for the A1C test, my results were lower than the last time. I've been taking apple cider vinegar and I think that may be helping. It is also good for a lot of other things. Anyway I feel like biscottibody may have saved my life, who knows?! They are saying the Avandia has been proven to cause more heart attacks and other heart problems. The percentages were very high. It seems to me that sometimes we have to take our lives into our own hands and do what we think is right. And a lot of research helps too.

Okay, I hope you're all having a good day. I checked up on some of the entries last night but not all. I do the best I can. I can't say enough about how I feel about this website and our little group. Well, I've been coming here for over 7 years now, I guess that says it all, lol. Take care and have a wonderful day!

Progress as of today: 8.8 lbs lost so far, only 22.2 lbs to go!

maria777 on 05/23/2007:
It shows no entry, so I guess you're keying right now... I'll check back later to read your entry! Have a wonderful day! Big Smile!


borntocry on 05/23/2007:
Wow, biscotti saved your life!?! I always knew this place was a life-saver...

greengirl on 05/23/2007:
WOW Soonie, sounds like you might have had a narrow escape thanks to biscottibody!!! You cant be too careful with any drug can you, even the prescription ones!!! I know what you mean about coming on this site. It is my biggest motivation !! Have a great day. By the way I'm sorry to hear about your BIL. Hope he is feeling better soon.

weightlossyoyo on 05/23/2007:
Hope things get better for you! We will pray everything goes well. I know any kind of drugs are pretty much bad, controlling whatever is possiable by diet and exercise is the best way to go. I know sometimes that is not possiable, but when it is, it is best. Both my parents take SOOO many meds it is unreal.

Weight: 162.2

Okay, I did it and now I wish I hadn't. Wasted a whole day, no exercise except bowling 3 games and then I stopped at Burger King on the way home. And I ate and ate all day. But I'm back today. The Burger King wasn't as good as I'd thought and I don't think I will be doing that again in the near future. Totally not worth it. And I felt bad last night when I went to bed, yuck! It's over. This morning I got up just after 6am and the DH and I went for a walk down the road. Only 33 minutes and about 1.6 miles but better than nothing. And I will eat right today. But we are having the Sis and BIL over for dinner, just burgers on the grill and salad and I don't know what else so I will try to be good. I will count the calories again today too. And no scale until Monday. When I'm good, I'm very good, but when I'm bad, I'm evil!! So it's back to the good. So you all have a great day and I'll be back tomorrow.

Progress as of today: 8.8 lbs lost so far, only 22.2 lbs to go!

greengirl on 05/22/2007:
1.6 mile is not to be sniffed at!! It's pretty good, in fact :) Good luck with the eating today:)

mcwoo40 on 05/22/2007:
Hi,at least you have got that burger binge out the way and better still not enjoying it you won't do that again in a hurry .I did that a couple of weeks ago with some fish and chips.It serves me right, as i had heartburn for the rest of the day,and they repeated on me,NO it is'nt worth it.Try and be good and it WILL be worth it,bye,Julie

maria777 on 05/22/2007:
I LOVE Burger King...but, ohhhhh the calories in lots of their delicious treats...today I 'ALMOST' stopped at Burger King for a small chocolate shake...then I thought...hey I can go to McD's and have a hamburger AND a cone of ice cream for the same as BK small chocolate shake in calories! So...I went to McD's...and it was just as good...maybe even better! Congratulations to you on your walking with your DH...Think I might mention that to mine tonite!

Hi S2BT: Thanks for leaving a comment on my journal. Although I don't always have time to comment to others, yours is one of the journals I always read. I admire your persistence. Keep up the good work. We all have good days and not so good days. The key is to get back "on the horse" and keep trying. Hope today is a good one for you.

Well, I had hoped for more of a drop on the scale but I'll have to settle for that. 2.2 pounds from last week. Yesterday it read 161.4! So there you go. What the heck?! This week I will not get on the scale until Monday, so there! My calories yesterday were 1294 and I didn't eat any of the strawberry shortcake! I guess 4 games of bowling were not enough exercise. I was going to get on the treadmill in the afternoon but never made it, so lazy. When you play, you pay! It was just one of those hungry days but I tried to keep it under control. Oh, well. I was going to take a water pill but didn't because I thought that would be cheating, heh.

Okay, today is bowling again this morning. If I do well, it could be 5 games. But that's never happened before. I have made it to 4 games but that's all. Maybe today.....I was going to go to the gym but I'm thinking of a day off. I know, I can hear you all groaning, there she goes again, right back into her old habits! But I don't know, I just feel like a day off. I'm feeling blah! I'll try to control my eating and that's all. I'm tired. We'll see what happens. I hope you're all doing better than I am. Have a great Monday!

HEYYYYYY!!!! CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU!!! THAT IS FANTASTIC!!!!! Look at that goal marker...you're getting there! And look at your cals for yesterday...only 1294...WOW!!! That is real good! Don't know how you resisted the strawberry shortcake...I think I'd have had to have had some...Looks like you're getting lots of exercise with the4 bowling! Hope you have a wonderful afternoon!

borntocry on 05/21/2007:
But you took a day off yesterday too, didn't you? Not that I have any right to scold - I took three days off last week!

(Counting Calories and Exercise)
Weight: 164.4

Happy Sunday morning! Things are going well for me still. 1180 calories yesterday with the 2 miles of walking on my treadmill. I think I did very well at the Bunco too. I ate 8 baby carrots, 8 grapes (I think) one tiny chunk of cheese, 3 little stick cracker things and a small bit of dip. I skipped the dessert but I felt like a party-pooper. She had cheese cake and a SF cake. I didn't have the SF cake because of the sugar alcohol, my digestive system doesn't tolerate it well, cramps, gas and the dreaded D, heh. So I avoid it. I'm sure they all thought I was being a goody-2-shoes. Oh, well. Next time I will partake of the dessert. Right now I just want to string a lot of good days together. I estimated the snacks at 150 calories but even if it was more than that, I was still under my goal of 1400. And I have strawberry shortcake in my house! Eek! I will probably have some of that today, counting all the calories and eating just a small portion. I avoided it yesterday. I got home at 4pm, finding that the DH had eaten the tuna salad I was planning for my lunch/dinner. I was starving! But fortunately there was leftover chicken breast and rice so I didn't panic like I would usually do and eat something dangerous. So all in all, a very good day---and a drop on the scale this morning. Weigh Day tomorrow!

Okay, today---bowling this morning with the DH. No pancakes out at the Village Inn though. I want to keep this good thing going as long as possible. So maybe I will come home and get on the treadmill. So now it's time for brekky, Weight Control oatmeal, banana-nut. Yum! You all have a wonderful day. P.S. I did win $5 at Bunco!

Progress as of today: 6.6 lbs lost so far, only 24.4 lbs to go!

maria777 on 05/20/2007:
Wow! Looks like you're on a roll!!! WTG!!! As for the watermelon...I did have a lot...about 4 cups...I think it's 50 cals or so per cup...DH had bought me some...He knows I LOVE WATERMELON!!! Looks like you are doing TERRIFIC on your cals and exercise!

Well, so much for keeping the calories low. Yesterday I had 1393 calories! Still under the 1400 I try to keep under but just barely. And the scale said I gained .6 pounds this morning from yesterday's weight. (BTW, I only change my weight on here on Mondays but I do get on the scale every day) I'm not letting it get to me though. I also worked out yesterday at the gym for an hour and a half. That included my 2 miles on the track. When I started the second mile (I just do one mile, then do the weights, then do the second mile, I like it that way) I started to feel really hot and weak and thought "oh, no, I'm not going to be able to finish this". But then the feeling went away and I realized I must have had a hot flash, heh. And it seems that I'm having fewer of those now and they are not as severe most of the time. I don't know if it's the acupuncture treatments, the herbal supplements, or the exercise and diet. Or maybe it just may be that I'm finally getting through with them, who knows? I just wish they would go away for good! At least I don't have TOM any more. That's wonderful!

Okay, for today so far I have walked 2 miles on my treadmill at home, showered, did my hair, had brekky and I'm on the second load of laundry! It's amazing how much you can get done when you get up early. I got up at 6:30 because I wanted to get this all done because I have Bunco today. I have to be at my friend's house by noon to ride with her. I'm looking forward to the Bunco, we always have a great time. Although you never know what the person who is hosting it will have for snacks. So this time I'm eating a second serving of oatmeal (the low-sugar peaches and cream) before I leave. I figure that way I will be safe. Also taking my own bottled water if I don't forget it. Our group also does this "secret pal" thing so we bring a gift for our secret pal every month, between 5 and $10. That's kinda fun too.

So I hope you're all doing great this fine Saturday. I plan to keep the calories lower today, it's harder on the weekends. But I will just keep busy all day. Have a good one, I'll see you tomorrow!

Hi,that is a fatal thing to do keep jumping on those retched scales,then if you have'nt lost, or stayed the same or even worse gained, you get peeved then cheat.That is a viscious cirle that i get myself into, it's all in the head thing!!Good job on the exercise,and have a great day with yor friends.Good thinking having something before you go, less chance of cheating.bye 4 now,Julie

Okay, here's what I'm doing to keep on track---just planning, keeping busy, and thinking constantly of what the scale will say the next morning. It also helps that I have a whole other wardrobe waiting for me when I lose the weight. I'm counting every single calorie and writing it all down. I think keeping busy is the best thing. Also having low-calorie foods available to eat when you just have to have something. I'm still not getting as much veggies in as I know I should, some days are better than others. So yesterday I had 1054 calories but never did get on the treadmill, just had 3 games of bowling for exercise. We didn't go out to lunch after bowling like we usually do so I had a good lunch of tuna on bread with grape tomatoes, a dill pickle and some of those low-calorie rice crackers that I love at home. Had 3 dried apricots for dessert. So a better lunch at home instead of eating out.

Well, today is going well so far. I got up at 6:30, went to Super WalMart for groceries (the best, less-crowded time to go), put the groceries away, had brekky and here I am. Next I'm going to the gym for a good workout. And I will keep busy the rest of the day, you know, house work, laundry, doing my cross stitch. Of course, I still have that thought in my mind of "how long will this last" "when will something set me into depression and I give up again?" I really want this so bad, to have more respect for myself and self esteem. I feel so much better already and I'm looking forward to feeling even better yet. Happy Days, peeps! Have a great weekend!

I see your today's entry hasn't come through yet, so you much still be keying...anyway, in response to your yesterday's entry, congratulations to you on you 1375 cals for the day! What restraint you had when you were having lunch at Swensen's to not go overboard! Of course, I would have had to have had the whole small sundae, too, hehehe! That sounds like an excellent birthday present you got son #3...bet he liked that! Hope you have a wonderful day today, Soonie!

maria777 on 05/18/2007:
I sure DO know what you mean about having a WHOLE OTHER WARDROBE waiting for you...I've even got a pair of the jeans hanging up on my bathroom door to see every day for motivation! Yes, I think having low-cal foods available DOES help a lot! Wow! Fantastic on the 1054 cals yesterday! WTG! And the bowling exercise, too! BIG SMILE! I hope I do well tonite when Hubby take me out to supper at a BUFFET...you are an inspiration! Have a GREAT DAY!!!

mcwoo40 on 05/18/2007:
Hi,another great day for you.That is the time i go home shopping at asda(our name for walmart)It is normally when i have just been in the gym,sweating cobs,and my hair a real mess, and you always see someone you know.I should go around with a paper bag over my head!!You sound like me, an emotional eater,or i just get fed up of the same foods and get bored.Would'nt it be great if you could buy willpower and positive thinking from Walmart/Asda!!bye 4 now,Julie

greengirl on 05/18/2007:
Hey Soonie. I do remember that you were going to have a tattoo for your birthday, and never got around to it!! It has taken me at least a year to finally get this one done, although I have had one a long time ago (over twenty years ago I think). And I have to say, it does hurt!!! But it's over a lot quicker than childbirth :o) You are having a really good week, arent you?? Keep it up and you will soon see a drop!!!

lafemme_loca on 05/19/2007:
If you want it... it will happen !! Just believe !!! :-) You are doing great and you gave me a great reminder to know that you have to keep thinking about tomorrow morning rather than tonight's cravings. Have a great weekend.

you're doing good....remember, its not about starving yourself...be careful eating calories that are just too low! ad long as you are prepared and plan...your success will be there!

Goooood Morning!! I'm feeling great! I handled yesterday just fine. At lunch, at Swensen's, I ate half the burger, 7 wedge-cut fries and the whole small sundae. After researching calorie amounts on the web, I estimated that I had 900 calories for all that. (that may be an over-estimate, I hope) I also drank 2 glasses of iced tea and ate very slowly. And after I got home, I didn't go and ruin it all. I didn't eat anything else until my light dinner (supper). Just had lima beans, carrots, strawberries and FF Cool Whip (not mixed together,lol). Oh, but after 7, I did eat some pretzels. I usually try not to eat past 7pm. So my calories for the day totaled 1375. Not bad with the meal out. And the scale was down this morning to reward me. Whoopee! As weightlossyoyo said, I'm in the Zone!! Now let's keep this up! Oh, and I worked out hard for an hour and 15 minutes at the gym. Go, me! For #3 son's birthday present I got a gift card from the Village Inn, which is right across from where he lives so I figured he could at least get a few good meals. He lives by himself, in case I never mentioned that. He's not married. So I tend to worry about him. Anyway....

Today will be bowling with the gang this morning. I may get on the treadmill later, I don't know. I tend to wimp out after bowling on Thursdays. Mainly because I don't want to have to shower again, heh. I WILL eat sensibly today. I love the drops on the scale and that will keep me going. Okay, time for brekky. See ya tomorrow! Have a good one!

Progress as of today: 6.6 lbs lost so far, only 24.4 lbs to go!

borntocry on 05/17/2007:
Hey! Where is our food-loving Soonie and who is this dainty imposter?!! Did you actually do exactly what you planned at Swensen's?! I must say, I think you probably did over-estimate your calories a little. I would probably have gone with 700. You really deserved the reward on the scale the next morning.

So what's your secret - I have a lunch out with my co-workers on Monday and I just know I'm going to spend the whole rest of the day binging (and the next, and the next...). You've got to help me - don't hog all this success to yourself!

hollybelle on 05/17/2007:
You did well, indeed! Like BTC - I want to know your "secret". I can't see to get a low cal day in for weeks. I need to adjust my attitude.

You did execellent expecially for your eating out!

CharlieAngel on 05/17/2007:
Great job on sticking to your plan at lunch. I really find that it helps when you make up your mind what you are going to eat before you get there. I often get on the computer and look up the menu at the restaurant and make a decision and then try to stick to it. Plan ahead is my new motto. Again, Kudos on your success!

Well, well, two good days down!! Yippee! Now to go on for 3. I can do it! A challenge today though--we're taking #3 son out for lunch for his birthday to Swensen's. That means the meal deal, burger, fries, and small sundae. I'm going to try just eating half the burger, I'm sure they can split the other half, a few fries but I'm having the sundae! So I will have a great workout at the gym this morning, really work hard. Did I tell you they built a new Burger King right on my way home from the gym? Humph! I will resist though! Also, I saw a commercial for that L.A. Diet place and they said you could lose 15 pounds in 6 weeks. So I went to my calendar, marked 164.4 on May 14, then went six weeks ahead and marked 153. That's not 15 pounds but that's my goal. I thought maybe if I wrote it down, it would happen. You know, that positive thinking thing. We'll see if it works.

Yesterday I had 1160 calories, did the 2 miles on the treadmill, went to Michael's, Hancock Fabrics, The Dollar Tree, and the grocery store. It was 2pm when I got home. Before I did all that, I colored my hair, showered and had brekky. That coloring my hair thing is getting really hard, my hair is below my shoulders now. But it looks good so worth it. I'm too cheap to pay for it so I do it myself. So far I can still handle it. Not easy though. Anyway, all that got me through the morning and into lunch. I did have some almonds at noon though to get me through. That works. Oh, and lots of water. So another good day.

Today, the gym, lunch out and eating light the rest of the day. I'm keeping busy with the cross stitch on my pajama shirt, started yesterday, already 10 letters finished. I'm putting "If The Hat Fits, Wear It" below a hat pattern that I ironed on it. My fingers are sore from the sewing now but I can still do it. I hate using a thimble. Anyway it's looking good so far. Still have to make the pajama pants too. Also bought a pair of cheap purple scuffs at the Dollar Tree that I will sort of decorate to match the pajamas. If DH is here that day when I get ready to go, I will have him take a pic.

Okay, time for a light brekky, then the gym. I hope you're all doing super! Take time to smell the roses! See ya tomorrow!

Progress as of today: 6.6 lbs lost so far, only 24.4 lbs to go!

Jmarie60 on 05/16/2007:
I have mini goals too that I write down in my calendar. It's not so overwhelming to think, "my goal is 200" instead of focusing on that 160 goal!

Good luck! I'm sure you'll reach it!

weightlossyoyo on 05/16/2007:
Way to go on the calories and exercise! You are in the ZONE and doing great, keep it up!!!!

maria777 on 05/16/2007:
How sweet, what you wrote to me just a few minutes ago! Thank you so much! I'm going to try NOT to eat anything else today...and get on the treadmill...

Your pj's that you are making sound like they will be so cute with the little scuffs (for your feet?) to go with them...I can just imagine your taking some of the pj material and maybe putting a little bow on the purple scuffs to match them! I don't like to use thimbles either!

You are doing SO FANTASTIC, with your only 1160 cals yesterday and your exercise, too....you usually do get in a LOT of exercise, especially with the 2 miles on the treadmill!

I think it's good to have a goal! I KNOW you can do it, too! Have a wonderful evening, Soonie! Big Smile!

Okay, one good day down! Let's see if I can make it two. I'm going for it! Yesterday's calories---1075! I bowled 3 games, didn't make the cut, went to Michael's and Target, then on to the gym, where I worked out for an hour and 10 minutes, including 1 1/2 miles of walking on the track. I didn't get to do the stair climber, someone was on it and it was after 1pm so I didn't want to wait. Next time. And, yes, after all that, I felt much better. And still doing well today. I got up at 6:30 and did 2 miles of walking on my treadmill. Plans for later are---color my hair, shower, go to Michael's, The Dollar Tree store and the grocery store. By then it should be time for lunch. So that get's me through the morning. I have some projects to take care of--I'm making purple pajamas for our next Red Hat Lady thing in June. We're having a pajama party at a local Denny's!! So I'm making some cute shorty pajamas. Maybe I'll take a pic when I don them on the day. That should be interesting, to say the least. I'm also doing cross stitch lettering on the shirt so I really need to get busy on that, not much time to get it done. That's why I'm going to Michael's today.

So that's it for now. I'm feeling much better, things are going well with the DH. I'm using the "killing him with kindness" strategy, lol. What else can he do but respond with more kindness? He's really not such a bad guy. Anyway, it's working so far. Okay, I'll be back tomorrow to update. Get out there and have a great day!

Up one pound from last week! And don't say it's just the muscle from the exercise. I won't believe that. My sinuses are driving me nuts. I thought they said the pollen count was down now. Must be from my cat. I can't take the sinus herbal supplement until 2 hours after I take my blood pressure med, which I take after breakfast, which will be about 8am this morning. So no relief until 10:00, and then they don't work that well anyway. Oh, well, at least I'm not taking the steroid nasal spray any more. I had been taking that for a long time, year round. Steroid drugs are not good for diabetics either. What are these doctors thinking? I don't trust any of them any more. I was taking a full strength aspirin every day on the advice of my cardiologist for a couple of years. Stopped taking them a few months ago on my own. Found out recently that they can cause strokes in people who are using the aspirin as a preventative now. Doctors just don't keep up on the new findings. Anyway.....I could go on and on.

Going bowling this morning. Then on to the gym. That's the plan anyway. I really feel like just going back to bed. Too many demands, too much stress, but I won't go into all that. Things are somewhat better with the DH. And as usual, I'm the one to give in and let it go. Things will never change. You'd think after almost 39 years, I would know that by now. So life goes on. Hope you have a good day!

Progress as of today: 6.6 lbs lost so far, only 24.4 lbs to go!

Well, I think we are not worse off for being the one to let it go.....every once in awhile, though it helps if we get a reason to be glad to do it, though, does't it!

Hang in there. It's hard to have wonderful days when we feel "not so hot". I hear you on the doctor issues. I thought allergies would be less in AZ than they are in KY, but sounds like sinus are tough everywhere. Keep trying for two good days in a row. It took me two weeks to do that a while back. Tee-Hee. Hang in there.

Hope everything gets better for you soon, you seem really down! Maybe the bowling and exercise will make you feel better.
