Carry a pen. "I was tired of compliments that stopped at my face," says Juanita Dillard, a 37-year-old makeup artist who weighed 274 pounds. "I was constantly surrounded by thin, gorgeous models, and I wanted to be like them."

Juanita started writing about her stress instead of feeding it. Within a year and a half, she dropped from a size 24 to a size 6. One time, halfway through a binge brought on by the stress of losing her pet, Juanita reached into her purse and felt her journal. Out it came, and she started writing. After putting her feelings down on paper, her desire to eat was gone." Journalizing has become my no-cal stress buster," she says.

It's time for a 4-day challenge for me (Fri-Mon). Goals are 84 oz water, less than 2000 cal eaten and at least a 1000 cal deficit. After my workout yesterday, I'm feeling like I'm on an even keel with my body. No aches, pains, I don't overdo it with the weights. I've done more weight workouts this month than in both November and December. And it's paying off and getting easier to get going.

Cheers to you all!

Thanks for your comments. I find it amazing that you have so much detail in your program, as far as calories, fiber, etc. It must be hard to keep track in such a way. How long have you been..I want to say in control, instead of dieting. Don't you absolutely hate that word?

Great job, I loved the quote you had in your entry today if it was a quote that is. That really makes sense to carry a journal. I can see that happening. Maybe its something to try. Have a great day!

Hi B.B., I have been walking on the treadmill and I've increased my time until I go back to 60 minutes. I've been doing legs and abs, stretching exercises for the shoulder and sitting in the sauna at the gym. I think I was so tense about everything yesterday that it made my muscles in my shoulder tense up. Or it could be the way I hold my arms while walking on the treadmill. I feel much better now, but thanks alot for your comments!

High calorie day yesterday. Still I'm in control. I feel very good adding more weightlifting to my routine, although it's hard to get it done--not because it hurts or I'm still sore, it's just mental at this point--being consistent is hard. It was that way with the jogging at first and I hope this becomes second nature the same way. It only takes a total of 25 min for the actual weightlifting, so it's not alot of time for the benefits I'm receiving.

Cheers to you all!

Adding weights to your exercise will make a big difference in your metabolism. Promise yourself that you'll do it for two weeks and know that every day, it will be really hard to make that choice. I think, once you get on a roll, you'll be ok.

Thanks for making me LOL with your Phyllis Diller quote. So... true...


breakaway on 01/26/2005:
Another great day for yoU! Way to go! Thanks for your nice comment today :) I can't wait to get into the weightlifting, I enjoyed that so much when I was younger.


SerDes19 on 01/26/2005:
I've struggled with cardio the same way you're struggling with weightlifting. In the beginning it's all mental but once I fall into that routine, I actually find myself getting excited to go work out. I guess you could call it a healthy addiction! Anyhow, it's great that you devote so much time to cardio every day. Today, I'm doing an hour cardio in the gym....if you don't hear from me within the next 2 days, you'll know I passed out and am in intensive care somewhere. lol Keep it up! Your determination will pay off.

You are still doing so well on your exercise! Keep up the great work. I have always enjoyed your entries because you have them set up so nice and they are easy to understand. Good luck to you this week...I am starting again and will be back here regularly starting the first of Feb. Feb was a good month for me years back when I first started so maybe that will bring me good luck :)


SerDes19 on 01/25/2005:
your reply wasn't offensive at all. I'm actually glad you pointed all of that out. Great job with your routine...you keep me inspired and that's exactly what I need.


borntocry on 01/26/2005:
Hi biscottibody! Congratulations on the measurements - an inch is quite a lot! If I could lose an inch on my hips... that would be a dream come true!

Thanks for the comment you left me. I'm not the middle child, I'm the oldest, with two younger brothers. And yes, for some reason, they've always been more demanding and have gotten more attention (and money) from my parents. (At least I know that my parents do appreciate it - I once heard my father tell someone that I'd never asked him for so much as a penny in all my life!)

It's funny you should mention being subjugated by one's children forever. My husband and I have been thinking about starting a family and I backed out because I decided I just wasn't ready to kiss my life as I know it goodbye forever! I guess I know I would just be a slave to my children...

Hi there: Thanks for your reply in my journal. I'm so glad you sent me the link to the actual BMI scale because the other one seemed a bit unrealistic. Anyhow, congrats on your current progress with weight loss. Keep up the good work! Meghan

The devil's in my freezer--a Haagen-Dazs Pop--I think it has about 390 calories. I was going to eat it last night, but I fell asleep--just as well. Now it's a reminder--every time I open the freezer.

Maybe this is just as simple as the evil on one shoulder and good on the other--hahaha!

I made a conscious decision not to go jogging last night. I felt for the first time that I may burn out if I don't listen to my body just a little more. I had a good workout earlier, so in a way it would have been overkill, but I've done it before. Anyway yesterday I felt different. As long as I don't skip two days in a row--I can keep my edge.

For my activity: Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (31 min/7.1 mi);
Jog 5 min/Walk 15 min

I did have a good breakfast--and got in a good workout--actually did 20 regular and 15 sissy pushups--woo-hoo! I don't use a bench at the moment, my workout is pretty bare-bones.

As for "food focus"--I'm really trying to be mindful for a change. Before I started this "journey" I occasionally got pretty bad indigestion. Now heartburn and such is a distant memory and I can eat quite alot without getting truly full. Today was one of those days, although I had an "on diet" type of breakfast. I hope to add an "on diet" lunch the next two days.

It's a waste of time and energy to not focus just because I'm lazy and I can get away with it (where I couldn't before, because it would make me sick). Now it seems to me it's just absurd to not moderate myself. I don't think I'm overdoing it on exercise, but maybe I am exercising to eat, to a certain extent. I'm not far enough into this to conclude that. But I think it is a piece of what's going on with me right now.

Cheers to you all!

For my activity: Nothing

I was favoring my Rt knee just a little and I was sore overall (still) yesterday. I probably could have taken a long walk--but sometimes you just have to rest and recharge. I want to do my Circ Wkt every 3 days, but just to be sure I don't overdo it (because I want to get my jogging in as well) I'll be doing it every 4 days (skip 3 days instead of 2).

Today will be a day of change--one day at a time. I veered off gradually to the point I'm at now and I feel veryvery motivated. Gotta strike while the iron is hot!

I put on a pair of shorts (size 10) that fit, but very snugly. Since they're convenient, I'll be using them for my gauge to see how I'm doing clothing-wise on a weekly basis. Of course I hope they're just so loose that they'll be dropping off of my hips in the next 60 days:-)

I did my "Cool Tool" Body Fat (HealthCentral.com) numbers and here's the result: 29.9% (49 lbs fat; 114 lbs lean). As I've said before it's a "go-by"--there's nothing magical, but 29.9%--Yikes!

Cheers to you all!

Turn in instead of giving in. Cheryl Lachenmayer's resolve dissolved each evening. To beat her cravings, the 39-year-old went to bed, sometimes as early as 9:00. She also went from 170 pounds to a slim 130.

I'm up 1 pound on my weekly weigh-in and on my measurements I'm down almost 1 inch net--down on all measures except bust; arm is the same. Some progress, better than nothing, but I know I can do better.

After today--my plan is to do my original diet from waayyyy back in my diary coupled with some good low-fat recipes from some Dr Ornish books I have--there are some very good low fat dressings and such there.

Gotta get a grip! I've glimpsed my past by going up in pounds, but by the same token, I'm in the best physical shape ever! I was on the track team in HS (and it was the first year for it, so not much was asked of us) and I'm in better shape than even at that time. I'm still concentrating on consistent weightlifting this week and changing some eating habits as well.

Cheers to you all!

Thanks for the kind words in my diary. I'll tell you what, there is nothing better for shaping your body than working with free weights. Combine that with a proper diet and you will get fantastic results. I totally agree with going to bed early to beat cravings. Sometimes I have 5 pieces of melba toast with 1 tbs. of peanut butter. It really fills you up at night. I need to be patient just like you said with the shoulder problems. It takes about 3-6 weeks to get completely better.


borntocry on 01/19/2005:
It's great that you're in such good shape. Same here - I used to be a lot thinner but I'm more fit now than I was then. And I think that's more important, actually.

You know I've found myself going to bed earlier and earlier as well, to avoid those late-night hunger pangs. I don't like it, though! My husband seems to think I'm getting really lazy!

Well, good luck with the diet. Hope you get the results you want!
