Today is supposed to be my 12 min test (jog/walk as far as you can in 12 minutes), but I may wait until tomorrow--playing it by ear.

Yesterdays exercise: Jog 30 min (5-11-14)/(mostly) DogWalk 20 min. Happy dog! After her excursion in pursuit of the trash truck the other day--I'm working on her "heeling" for at least 5 min/walk. She's doing really well.

I had a much better food day, in fact much better than in a long while.

Cheers to you all!

Good for you today. I read your journal yesterday and all I can say is wow, I didn't even know you knew some of those words. Hehe. Take care.

Great Quote! Those words coming from you were a real surprise to me too. I can understand how you felt and relate in many ways. You're right the only failure is giving up and thank-you for helping me not give up.

Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
--John Quincy Adams

Scale reality hits! I am reaffirming now that this is what I want--to achieve and maintain at least below an "overweight" BMI. I can still see the veins in my biceps. My double chin is still absent--haha! I'm still pretty happy with my legs. Those are all the superficial things that I don't worry about. I just know I wasn't proud of them before I lost a few pounds. Now they're just me!

I was stuck between 162-167 (I vaguely remember:-) for what seemed an eternity. I haven't failed miserably until I return to that--but hey, that's just me!

Overall I'm not dissatisfied, but I want to continue to pursue a better, consistent lifestyle. About the only consistency has been my jogging. I enjoy it because it yields immediate good feelings of well-being and accomplishment. Who knew?:-)

I had to go after my dog to the tune of about 40 minutes the other day. Thinking I was going to be out for only a short while, I slipped an old pair of leather flip-flops onto my bare feet. Bad news for my back. I have to have a decent pair of shoes to preserve a pain-free back. Normally I take time to put my running shoes on, but I didn't this time. It amounted to about 24 hours of misery, but it didn't hurt to do my little 20 min Jog. My back is still a little sore (not when I jog, mysteriously), but no biggie!

I'm changing my calories to <2000, my counting starts with yesterday simply because Tuesday is my weigh-in and it'll be a week's worth next Tuesday. I'm still reading the book, but am not really enamored with the ideas in it at this time.

As for Idsgirl's question about getting personal in my entries. I just see it as one more thing to get me off-focus of my goals. It takes the spotlight off of me and puts it elsewhere. It may make for good reading and catharsis, but I can write in other places and I do. Keeping the focus on me and my goals has served me well. I have no intention of putting all my weight back on. I remember being absolutely miserable in my skin. It had nothing to do with anyone around me. It had to do with me and the poor choices and habits I had made for a sustained period of time. And when it all comes down to it, I'm really the only one who cares.

It still amazes me how some people "conveniently" fail to notice that I have lost what for me is alot of weight. Guess what--f*ck 'em! Yeah,
f*ck 'em--they don't have to live in my skin, they didn't have to walk in my f*cking shoes to achieve what (for me) was and is a monumental task! Despite them, I feel wonderful!:-)

For my exercise:
Sun 4.11: Circuit Aer Wkt using the NordicTrack (61 min/7.0 mi)
Mon 4.12: Jog 20 min/Walk 45 min
Tues 4.13: Jog 21 min (5-16)/Walk 10 min

Your dedication and your commitment to persevere show me the strength of you character.

I have found that being so personal in my entries has awakened me to reality. It is who I am. It's has everything to do with me. It has made me more honest than anything that I have done in my life. I would have to disagree about it having nothing to do with anyone around you. Enlighten me-Why do you feel that way? You are right- when it comes right down to the bottom line it is about us and the poor choices and habits that we make and sustain.

I have great admiration and respect for what you have done. You could not have hit the nail harder on the head when you said that you are really the only one who cares. We are the ones who have to live in our bodies every second of every minute of every day. We have to give ourselves what we cannot get from any one else.

Thanks for your example.

39.5 lbs is a lot to lose, more than my 27. However, I'm still at it and will continue. Only 18 more lbs. to go. Putting it this way, doesn't make it seem so far away. I just have to get out of this 2� wk. rut I'm in and I think I made a good start yesterday.

Soon2BThin on 04/14/2004:
I sure wish I could jog! I can barely do 3.5 mph right now and I just don't think I'll ever be jogging. But you never know, right? If you're anything like me, you start getting real nervous when you go up to a certain weight. When I reached over 160 and almost to 170, wow, reality check! And I still don't feel any thinner now. I hope your back feels better.

bluestone_girl on 04/14/2004:
i am amazed at the level of physical activity u do. you have real stamina (is that how its spelled?). i really enjoyed reading ur entry. i dont mind if other ppl talk about there personal life in these diaries, but i dont either. a little snippet here and there, but nothing dramatic. my reason is that i also keep a normal daily diary. and i find if i write the same things in both, then i lose interest and dont bother w/one. so far this system has been good for me. too bad about ur back. hope ur feeling better. here's to john quincy, and another day done!!!

Society does not need more children; but it does need more loved children. Quite literally, we cannot afford unloved children--but we pay heavily for them every day. There should not be the slightest communal concern when a woman elects to destroy the life of her thousandth-of-an-ounce embryo. But all society should rise up in alarm when it hears that a baby that is not wanted is about to be born. --Garrett Hardin

For Friday I did 69 min/8.0 mi on the NordicTrack and Jog 20 min/35 min walk. For Saturday, I did 20 min/2.2 mi on the NordicTrack. But none of it was enough to offset the food I chose to eat.

Maybe a little stress eating. I have a 17yo niece who has just this week chosen to tell me she's pregnant (5 mos). I'm a little broken-hearted because I thought much more of her and tried to get her out of what I considered a desperate situation. Selfish of me, I know.

More than likely she will be bringing the baby into the situation. I am way outside of her sphere of influence and certainly have not been her confidant for a number of years. I will not be volunteering to inject myself into the situation now.

It's odd, her mother and father had her when they were nearly 30, they weren't kids. They abdicated alot of responsibility for her (probably) since she was potty trained. She's pretty much devoted to them. In fact, that was really my worst nightmare--her taking responsibility to care for her hopeless-case parents--not her getting pregnant. That's Life!

Sorry for a downer--as long-timers here know, I usually don't get personal in my entries. I felt early on in my journey that it didn't do much for me and my quest for weight loss to talk about everything else going on in my life, but this news has thrown me for a loop.

inmorning on 04/12/2004:
Don't worry about the downer. I think more girls need to see what happens to others when they don't think about consequences of their actions. You can tell someone over and over but until they are ready to understand, they won't. Cheer up.

When a cat is dropped, it always lands on its feet, and when toast is dropped, it always lands with the buttered side down. I propose to strap buttered toast to the back of a cat; the two will hover, inches above the ground.

I hope you have not been leading a double life, pretending to be wicked and being really good all the time. That would be hypocrisy.
--Oscar Wilde

Weeeellllll! Okay, I've been away from here for a few too many days. I have been getting in my jog and I did some mowing/weedeating. I really didn't pay all that much attention to my food logging. I'd like to say I'll be getting back to it today. I just want to get back on track and all that jazz!

I'm still reading the book Overcoming Overeating by Jane Hirschmann and Carol Munter (both psychotherapists). Here's another excerpt:

From Chapter 11:

Reading your hunger involves, first, giving up the rules that govern food choices. We have accustomed ourselves to the notion that cereal, toast, eggs, and juice are "good" breakfast foods; that sandwiches, soup, and salads are for lunch; and that meat, fish, and a variety of vegetables make for a proper dinner. We have even specified the order in which food should be eaten within a given meal. For example, soup is always first and dessert last. A child of five can tell you that vegetables are "what you have to eat before you get dessert."

Interestingly, we have found that much overeating is caused by people's dogged adherence to eating traditions and consequent failure to read their hunger properly. Because of that, most compulsive eaters who attempt to deny their cravings by eating "what they should" usually end up eating what they originally wanted in addition to what they should.

Imagine that you are hungry for sweets at 6:00 p.m., but decide to eat dinner instead. You eat soup, fish, broccoli, and a salad. When you finish all that, you still don't feel satisfied, so you help yourself to seconds. By then you're feeling stuffed, but still not satisfied. Next, dessert is offered, and no matter how stuffed you feel, you dig in. When you've finished your dessert you finally feel stuffed and satisfied. Had you eaten only the dessert, you would have consumed much less, avoided the uncomfortable stuffed feeling, and, of course, satisfied your particular hunger.

With all due respect to the wisdom of our five-year-olds who have already internalized the mor�s of our culture vis-�-vis eating, you are not obligated to eat vegetables before you can have dessert. Unfortunately, the rules we and our children have learned about eating have more to do with denying specific hungers than with responding to them.

Cheers to you all!

A very interesting quote, I must say, and it's right on track! Denying yourself is not the way. Limiting, yes! Everything in moderation. I always keep Julia Childs in mind with all that butter she loves and wine. She's in her 90's now and doing well. That's good enough for me.

TheMother on 04/08/2004:
I wholeheartedly agree with the author of the excerpt you've copied. I know I'm guilty of eating and overeating until I quench that particular craving when I would probably eaten much less (and fewer calories) if I just had what I wanted. That's for posting the info. It is "food" for thought...

Have a GREAT day...

Hi! It's probably for the best that you didn't read my ENTIRE entry it got a little out of control but amazingly enough I felt like I have removed one more brick from that wall. Help me out-is it not okay to make such long entries??? I don't know what rules there are- I just dove in and by the time I pushed add entry didn't even realize how long I had gone on. It would help if I would take the time and read the rules and regulations of the site. The only thing I have done on this site until a few days ago is read entries and I have read your entries for 2 years even took time went back and read the earlier ones and you have had alot of thought provoking quotes and comments. As for today, I imagined that it was 6:00 I ate soup, fish, broccoli, and a salad and still didn't feel satisfied so then I ate something whole grain and a fruit and felt complete satisfaction!! so satisfied that I didn't even want to have a dessert. The dessert even sat on the counter in plain veiw all night and I did not even have to use willpower to not touch it!!! Next time I will either have the soup or the fish but not both in one meal as for the broccoli even though I didn't care for it before I enjoyed some now on the salad because now my body craves fresh veggies and fruit instead of junk!!! Thanks for all your wisdom.

I got a bunch of activity in yesterday. I did my Circuit Aerobic Workout (after about a month's break from it--not planned) using the NordicTrack (62 min/7.5 mi). Last time I'd gotten on it was 3.17--felt good! Later I did a Jog 20 min/Walk 10 min.

Here are a few paragraphs from the introduction of Overcoming Overeating by Jane Hirschmann and Carol Munter (both psychotherapists):

If you count yourself among the people who feel compelled to eat even though you're not at all hungry, this book is for you. It offers a radical alternative to chronic dieting, a way to go beyond controlling your compulsive desire for food and start curing it.

Our approach to curing compulsive eating will enable you to

--give up dieting forever and discover that you eat much less without the restraints of a diet.

--learn to eat from physiological hunger and, perhaps for the first time, enjoy the enormous satisfaction of meeting that hunger with the foods you most desire.

--stop overeating and lose the weight that has been its by-product.

--move beyond your negative preoccupation with eating and weight into a fuller life.

We are therapists not statisticians, and we have never been in a position to conduct the rigorous, double-blind studies that allow scientists to declare that something has been "proved." Nonetheless, our long experience with clients indicates that although 25% of people may feel frightened about such a radical change and give up on the program before it yields the desired results, the remaining 75% have a remarkable experience. They resolve their compulsive eating and in so doing change their lives. The examples throughout this book are drawn from our experiences working with peple very much like you.

From Chapter 1:

We define OVERWEIGHT as that weight which reflects the fact that you eat in excess of your body's needs. Notice that our concept of overweight bears no relation to the statistical concept of overweight reflected in height/bone structure/weight charts. These charts delineate statistical averages and have nothing to do with whether your body size is a reflection of overeating. We define normal weight as the natural weight you will return to once you cure your compulsive overeating.

No one can diagnose compulsive eating on the basis of size. Only you know if you feel compelled to eat or to control your eating. Only you know if you are a compulsive eater.

Well . . . enough already!

Cheers to you all!

I'm down a half-pound on my weigh-in. My measurements are thus:
Abd 38.125 (+1.125), Bust 33.75 (+.25), Calf 15 (~), Hip 40.25 (+.5),
RArm 11 (~), RLeg 24.125 (+.375), Waist 33.5 (+1.75), Wrist 6.125 (~).

On Sunday I took about a 15 min walk, picked up the yard a bit, and did about 20 minutes worth of sawing (wood) by hand. Yesterday I did a Jog for 30 min/Walk for 15 min.

I'm about halfway through Overcoming Overeating and it's very intriguing. Not to give it's premise away before I'm finished, just wanted to say it reminds me (so far) of the way the "Schick Center" in the 70s used to (supposedly) get people to quit smoking. It was to offer them a tray of cigarettes and let them smoke just as many as they wanted.

I'm at the part in the book where you go to the store and buy 3 times as many bags of potato chips (for example) than you think you'll eat. The other two are to show you that you have abundance and have no reason to think they're going anywhere. You are instructed to make a list of everything you "deprive" (my word) yourself of. One person mentioned that she went to a store far from her usual. Another told the cashier they were having a big party. It says to not substitute. For example, if you always eat lo-cal margarine but you'd rather have butter--by all means--get the butter. If you want Snickers, don't buy Baby Ruths. It is strictly anti-diet.

You get rid of your scale (or at least put it away) and make sure you have a full-length mirror so that you can look at yourself in privacy. You get rid of all clothing you can't wear at this moment--too smalls and too larges. Don't wear something tight to remind yourself you need to lose weight.

I highlighted a few passages. I'll try to share them in my next entry.

What an interesting concept. I don't think it's for everyone, though. Me, in particular. If I filled my pantry with all the goodies I would find it irrestible. I've made peace with myself in not denying myself, but instead, limiting the no-no foods. If I just have to have some chocolate, or whatever, I do, but in very limited quantities. Loading my shelves with no-no's is not what I can personally handle. Maybe some can. As an ex-smoker, offering me a tray of cigarettes is definitely NOT the way to quit! I smoke every single cigarette! Getting rid of "small" clothes does not strike me as helpful. I find the incentive to fit into them to my liking. But, to each his own. It's like dieting: some are lo-carb, some lo-fat, blah blah blah. Whatever works, go for it!

I got in a 20 min Jog/10 min walk. I'm going to report my numbers again. My main interest is to just tow the line. Not to really break my back or anything. The challenge of last week served its purpose in getting back into a bit of a groove when I was way off. I feel so fortunate to have kind of gotten the hang of what works for me. In the past I had been lost, unmotivated, and uninterested thinking I just couldn't do it. I have changed my outlook . . . don't want to lose that!

Thanks for the correction. I totally misinterpreted what you meant. So sorry. As far as outlook goes, the same thing has happened to me.

Why the hell are we conditioned into the smooth strawberry-and-cream mother-goose, Alice-in-Wonderland fable, only to be broken on the wheel as we grow older and become aware of ourselves as individuals with a dull responsibility in life? --Sylvia Plath (1932-1963)

I endured the violent overthrow of my stomach contents on Saturday night . . . late. I have to tell you that I would rather walk over hot coals than to lose my lunch. I could never be a bulimic. As long as I live, I could never become one with the act of vomiting. I can count on the fingers of both hands the times I remember vomiting in my life. I probably have more fillings than that number. I guess I'm lucky:-) Hell, I know I'm lucky!

I started back on toast on Sunday, but didn't really have much of an appetite. My appetite isn't really back to 100%. I did a 20 min Jog/5 min Walk on Friday. Didn't do any exercise at all except housecleaning on Saturday. Yesterday: Jog 20 min/DogJog 5 min/Walk 15 min. I really needed that--exercise has really become a stress preventive for me--it was soooo exhilarating to get out after feeling puny for a couple of days.

I'm down on my weekly weigh-in. I didn't take measurements again--need to get back into the weight training regularly.

Welcome back to everyone who has come back recently--it's good to "see" you all once again!

Cheers everyone!

When I start ignoring weighing in and ignore taking measurements, there's usually a good reason, meaning, I haven't been good and I don't want to face the music. Consequently, I continue going downhill and it doesn't take long before my plan is out the window and conscientiously watching my diet is a memory.You are only a couple of pounds up from your low, something that can be remedied in a short time. You CAN'T ignore the scale. It IS your friend that keeps you on the straight and narrow even though it doesn't always seem friendly. Clear your mind and start anew. And get on that scale!

Hello, thank you for the welcome back. It's ALWAYS friendly on here, that's why I like it. I completely agree with your comments re vomiting - I pass out every time I vomit (that's how I broke my ankle a few years ago), it's very scary. I'd rather lie with the room spinning than let it all out even though I know it's coming out for a reason and I'll feel better after.
