When I buy cookies I eat just four and throw the rest away. But first I spray them with Raid so I won't dig them out of the garbage later. Be careful, though, because that Raid really doesn't taste that bad.

Happy Monday!

I did well for the Weekend Challenge. Met all three, water--deficit--calorie goals.

I'm trying to sort out what to set my NordicTrack display thingy to, and so the numbers came up thus: 1 hr, 12 min/8.3 mi. Please ignore this discussion, but hey you can comment all you want--I just love comments:-)

****** So I changed the "resistance" number from 5 to 0 in hopes that the calories burned would closely match the category I use from FitDay.com; it didn't work. So what happened was I worked until about 700 cal--on Fitday it counted about 600--so I'll go the other way, maybe set it to about 10. The other thing about Fitday is just 1 pound lost takes away 10 calories of base calories burned. That doesn't seem fair. But I suppose it makes sense! ******

Okay, I'm finished with my "inner" discussion. Assuming there's another Kyrin challenge on the horizon, I'm going to continue on with the same goals as the last 3-day.

Hope you have a good food choice day--please don't misconstrue that as advice--it's just a harmless, but serious wish from me to you:-)

Gael the Whale on 04/21/2003:
Way to go . Love the quote lol. Sounds like something I would do.


Chrysalis on 04/21/2003:
I laughed when I read your last comment: "please don't miscontrue that as advice--it's just a harmless...."

I must admit that the discussion about the treadmill was completely lost on me. I'm afraid I'm not high tech enough to use a treadmill.

Oh, and a quick note about "the lips." I think they look better on a thinner face. Perhaps I'll be happier with them when I take more weight off.


SummerGoal on 04/21/2003:
Just wanted to stop by and thank you for the words of encouragement you left me, I appreciate it so much! Thanks again... :)


CAUSTIC on 04/22/2003:
Woooooow, look at youuuuu, covering your bases. You should be a politician:) hehe

Thanks for the kind words. See, I appreciate words of encouragement! But, hey, maybe that's just me LOL.

Your dedication to fitness is awesome. Truly, I just have to commend you for that. You're making me feel like the slob that I am. But in the good, tuff luv way! hehe:)

Keep it up, you're awesome:) *Ana*

Progress, of the best kind, is comparatively slow. Great results cannot be achieved at once; and we must be satisfied to advance in life as we walk, step by step. --Samuel Smiles

For the second day of the 3-Day Challenge I did well--met all goals. I did 1 hr, 3 min/7.6 mi on the NordicTrack. I also did a 25-min jog mostly
flat--the only hills were down--woo-hoo!

Happy Easter!

--Robert Benchley

I met all my goals for the first day of the (Kyrin) Fri-Sat-Sun Challenge--1000 cal def/day--100 oz water--2000 cal/day. For my activity yesterday, I mowed for about 2 hours. I guess getting in shape has kept me from being so wiped out the day after. For Thursday I did NordicTrack for 1 hr, 6 min/7.4 mi.

It was nice to strike a chord with my entry for yesterday:-)

I hope you all have a good holiday weekend!

kyrin on 04/19/2003:
Woo-Hoo! Good for you, gal! You're right on target to accomplish your challenge goals.

You're gettin' stronger everyday!

Hugs!

pollyanna on 04/20/2003:
One of the things about my only coming in once or twice a week is I get to read back a whole week on people's lives. I know that feeling you have--the one of accepting gain for the rest of my life. I know that place when the moment of truth hits. And I know the resolve.

I don't have a drastic change at the beginning--I am 6' and no one notices any change for maybe 35 pounds off. For you, the change was at first and now it's eeking off--change happening slowly. The most important thing is that YOU (or me, in my case) know of the changes and appreciate them.

You are doing beautifully. And you are beautiful--no shortness of breath now, is there? Happy holidays! Peace, pollyanna :)

They are ill discoverers that think there is no land, when they can see nothing but sea. --Francis Bacon

For several years I looked at myself in the mirror and didn't see a fat person or even someone who needed to try to lose weight. I knew my eating had gotten out of control and that I had put on weight and wasn't exercising. I had a picture that a coworker took of me and I could see the rolls on my stomach through a turtleneck and a prominent double chin. I stuck it to my fridge and didn't really let it sink in. I guess I had resigned myself to gaining 5 or so pounds a year for the rest of my life.

Then when I started this stint of weight loss (about 3 years after that picture had been taken), I was fatter and physically miserable. People would say, "Oh, you don't look like you weigh that much, and you don't need to lose weight." Well I was short of breath and I felt my feet tingling occasionally. I had so many "fat" pictures of me in bathing suits over the years that I was numb to what I truly looked like. And everyone around said how I looked okay. I wouldn't have listened back then anyway. I was a sucker!

I took pictures of myself (right at the start of this) in a Speedo tank suit (I know tank is supposed to refer to the pool--hahaha) and got the pictures back. And you know when you're little and you're sticking your stomach out to show a pot belly--well I looked like that without sticking it out! It finally sunk in and I wasn't happy with what I saw. I could have looked in the mirror in that suit all day for a week and not have seen what I did in the flat paper of a photograph.

I'm still working on me in body mind and spirit. I said from the beginning that the reasons I wanted to lose weight were equally health and vanity. I'm not gonna ever be "boobs on a stick" for crying out loud, but if I stopped right here, I'd be satisfied. I've found this is a truly selfish as well as a humbling endeavor and can make one feel a little guilty about succeeding. But in the end if you've got to live, you might as well be as happy and healthy as you can be--for others and especially for yourself!

Thanks for noticing me and leaving comments when you feel like it, because in my encounters with people no one really notices the changes lately, I guess because they're not drastic anymore. I've gotten used to it.

Onward and upward ya'll--and downward with the scale and inches!

kyrin on 04/18/2003:
I love knowing that you're challenging with me! I believe that I'm going to try to push the water this weekend. You really insprie me to try harder with that. Just knowing that you're out there trying to meet your goals pushes me toward my own. Thanks, Biscotti!

HUGS!

Kyrin


dolyda on 04/18/2003:
girl, i know EXACTLY how you feel...my nasty pics are one my website for all to see...i guess i figure if i publically embarrass myself enough, it'll finally sink in that i need to do something!...on the other hand tho...i really feel like i've always been overweight...in high school i wasn't obese, mind you, but comparatively, i was bigger then the "norm"...i got back down close to my high school weight about 4 yrs ago when i left my husband...i didn't think i was thin then either, but looking at back at it from the perspective of 173, 144 sounds really great!...i told my best friend that my goal is to get below 144....i haven't been there since i found out i was pregnant with my 9 yr old :D


hearts_desire on 04/18/2003:
hey there, I just love your out look and attitude about all this.. wish I had more of it myself.. you keep up the great work ... have a wonderful easter holiday. Lisa


MichelleP on 04/19/2003:
Hi,

I did understand what you were saying to me, and thank you for taking the time to say it.

Oh MY GOODNESS, your entry today is just how I felt all day long. I was putting pictures away and I started to wonder why I didnt see the fat person in the mirror that was in those pictures. People see me now and say they dont understand why I still want to loose weight. But I do, if that makes sense. I know that I am much smaller now but I know I can do more, and should for my health.

Again I am so very happy for you! You are a true example of what can work when you work it, thank you! Hugs


BingeOnThis on 04/19/2003:
Isn't it amazing (and sometimes sad) how the mind tricks you? I relate to what you said soo much, how you either don't see it when you're overweight or you don't want to see it. Even though I think I'd want to hurt the person who tells me the honest truth that I'm fat, at the same time I sometimes wish those around me would be honest and tell me what they think. Not that anyone elses opinions should effect us but still..when I was 180 years ago everyone said I looked *good*. It's only NOW they tell me I was getting out of control. Sheesh!

Have a great weekend and know I envy your positive outlook and attitude!


Chrysalis on 04/19/2003:
I know the feeling of looking at the "hard facts" on a printed photograph and realizing that, although the camera may add 10 pounds, I have added the other 100. It's sobering! What really did it for me was seeing a picture of me standing by Air Force One. I have very pale skin and I like dark lipstick. Now, my lips look like the kind Clara Bow had, so they're not wide, have rather pointed uppers and a fuller lower. I see my mouth in the mirror and it looks fine to me. I saw my mouth in the photo from a distance and it looks like I'm pursing my lips. I mean, here is this little, tiny red thing in the middle of this huge expanse of white. It was almost too depressing to take. Oh, oh, oh...I won't even start with the misshapen looking body and the huge hamhock legs. So, I agree, I want to lose weight to be healthy and to be able to paint my toenails without having to stretch OVER my stomach, but at least half of my desire to lose is pure vanity.

But we'll do it!

Nothing encourages creativity like the chance to fall flat on one's face.
--James D. Finley

*********************** LAME HAIKU ALERT! ***********************

Worked ass off for loss
Now I'm at 161
Wasn't all that hard

Not! It's been a tough trip to a new low. I don't even know when I weighed this--probably 15 years ago or thereabouts. I know I wasn't as lean as I am today because I paid little attention to my diet back then. I'm looking forward to getting into a "normal" BMI (as opposed to "overweight" or "obese"--where I started at 32.4). It's 27.6 today. As always, they are just numbers--but numbers certainly can be motivating:-)

The support from all on here is invaluable. It's truly been a process of change and learning and I'm sure that will continue. Thanks to everyone on DietDiaries!

Hope you're having a good food choice day!

dolyda on 04/17/2003:
congrats!!...i hope to be there one day as well! :D

Sounds like you're doing great! I love the quotes or whatever you call those sayings. Where do you get those? I'd like to start some jogging too but I'm afraid someone would see me and I'd probably look ridiculous. But then, why should I care, right? Keep up the good work.


Golightly on 04/17/2003:
Biscotti, you are only 6 pounds away from your May 6 goal! How fantastic is that!!

No, I don't have lights with timers, but that's a good idea! I may go shopping this weekend! (Were you worried that, now that I have solved my problem of bumping into the wall of the pool, that now I will start bumping into the walls of my apartment?? LOL)

Take care and keep up your amazing NordicTrack routine!

My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four. Unless there are three other people. --Orson Welles

Ooo-eee! Those numbers are nasty! Nope, I didn't dilute the evaporated milk. But, I'm down a half-inch each in my RtLeg, Waist and Hip measurements. I'm up one-eighth in my RtArm and the rest are the same. Scale is the same.

I did a 30-min jog chock full of hills--what a blast:-) I'm still consistently slow (about 12 min/mile). But I'm looking forward to getting faster over time. I just don't want to push it, baby!

So, have a good food and exercise day; I'll check in later!

Oh, I just discovered this is a red-letter day for me--I'm a pear! This means my Waist:Hip Ratio is .80--something I've been tracking for quite some time. If your ratio is above .80 (for females and .94 for males) you have a higher risk for heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

A small trouble is like a pebble. Hold it too close to your eye and it fills the whole world and puts everything out of focus. Hold it at a proper distance and it can be examined and properly classified. Throw it at your feet and it can be seen in its true setting, just one more tiny bump on the pathway to life. --Celia Luce

Happy Monday!

It is Monday, isn't it? I celebrated on Saturday courtesy of others, then on Sunday I celebrated and cooked and ate and celebrated. Soooo, my "Kyrin Weekend Challenge" got turned on its head, and I'm back on track today. Except that my fat for today will be a little out of whack owing to the fact that all I had for my coffee was full-fat evaporated milk. I even ran out of dry milk, which I mix up in a pinch.

My calories and deficit are an average. Awhile back I made a fictitious number of calories, etc for FitDay to zero out a "normal" activity day (a day where I did no activity). I call it a "Zero Deficit" or Free Day. Yeah, it screws up the cumulative numbers a little, but so what:-) I used it for this because I didn't even come close to writing down what I ate the last few days much less caring to spend the time to plug it in to FitDay.

For Friday I did NordicTrack for 1 hr, 8 min/7.4 mi and then on Saturday, 1 hr, 4 min/7.4 mi. I only counted "cooking" as activity (a la FitDay) for Sunday.

It dawned on me that maybe I am a little obsessed with FitDay, but learning to eat within a certain activity level is the long-term goal (with the occasional celebratory meal). It isn't to have a running list of percentages and averages, etc to eventually tell the world, "Hey look, you can do this too!" or to eat in a celebratory way 90% of the time.

I didn't get a chance to get out and rent some Monty Python this weekend--but getting ya'll's comments certainly were appreciated:-) Supposedly A&E has the rights to it here in the US, but they don't air it.

Hope you're having a successful food and exercise day! I'll see ya' later!

SoccerMom on 04/14/2003:
I'm just not into writing down everything I eat. Too much attention placed on food, makes me think about it more, and then I eat more. Better for me to just eat what I need to survive, and then go do something active.

Have a great day!


Golightly on 04/14/2003:
Hi Biscotti! Thanks for the birthday wishes. The banner is SO COOL!

LOL, the big red X idea is great. I may just do it! Won't my daughter be surprised when she comes home to find a big red X over all the items in the freezer! Yeh ... I think she'd laugh ... which means I'm definately gonna do it!

How could A&E be so cruel as to have the rights and then not air Monty Python? Cruel!

Take care!

Mr. Praline: The plumage don't enter into it. It's stone dead.


kyrin on 04/14/2003:
I've gotten bad about procrastinating my fitday entries until the next morning when I take a look at the day before and see what was what. I was doing better when I input the info in the afternoon and corrected for the highs and lows with the remaining meal and snack. I'd love to say I didn't need to input the info at all, but I'm not there yet. ...Hopefully, you and I will both get to a point where we are only doing occasional checks to help us remember what a normal blance is supposed to be.

I'm glad that you had a break from your "obsessing." Now, let's go have a successful challenge.

Hugs!

Happy Friday!

I had a good exercise day. I have started doing 5 min of crunches (divided into 3 or 4 sessions). This is during my morning exercise--they have gotten much easier. Don't know how much good they're doing--I can't see through that layer of stomach fat just yet--but they make me feel strong:-) I count them, but using a clock is much better motivation for me. I got back to my usual NordicTrack, 58 min/6.4 mi.

My knee didn't hurt during the exercise, but it was still just a little sore all day when standing.

And now for something completely different--haha--I've been having this craving for watching "Monty Python's Flying Circus" as of late.

Let's see, how can I describe the food day. "Dissatisfaction" in a word. I'd had plenty to eat by suppertime, but I decided to give in to pizza and some pepsi. I just think I'll have these days. It probably would have been just as easy to get a medium-sized bag of Cheetos or something,
but . . . anyway earlier in the day, I had this huge craving for chocolate chip cookies. If I had had a batch of freshly made ones, I'd probably have eaten all of them.

So, I'll get back to some semblance of my plan tomorrow. As for the Weekend Challenge, here are the objectives:

1)The above "Current Diet"
2)At least 80 oz water
3)At least 1000-calorie deficit per day

I hope you have a good food and exercise day!

Gael the Whale on 04/11/2003:
you can do it. I like the idea of a weekend challenge. that is when I think one has to be especially careful because we are more likely to be at home with the food at hand. Less llkely to be out and about. Keep up the good work.


Chrysalis on 04/11/2003:
Some days are just "hungry." Sigh. Did you indulge yourself in the Monty Python? Perhaps that can be your weekend treat!


Golightly on 04/11/2003:
Good quote, although I would add Humour to the list. After all, isn't laughter the best medicine?

I love Monty Python's "How to defend yourself against Fresh Fruit" :

Instuctor: "How to defend yourself against a man armed with a banana. Now you, come at me with this banana. Catch! Now, it's quite simple to defend yourself against a man armed with a banana. First of all you force him to drop the banana; then, second, you eat the banana, thus disarming him. You have now rendered him 'elpless."

Student: "Suppose he's got a bunch."

Instructor: "Shut up."

Second Student: "Suppose he's got a pointed stick."

(ha, ha, and don't even get me started on the Spanish Inquisition!)


kyrin on 04/11/2003:
Hello, you!

Are cookies in the air, or what? It was peanutbutter cookies for me yesterday. I could practically smell them. So, I made a batch. Baked one small cookie for myself and put chocolate pieces in the rest of the dough so that I couldn't have any more (allergic).

I also gave in and had a coke yesterday. Ah, well. The indulgences didn't really hurt us in the overall scheme of things. ...We're still kickin' butt with our exercising! I'm soooo proud of us!

We're doin' it!

HUGS!

Soon2BThin on 04/11/2003:
I think we all have those days of cravings. You handled it well! Gosh, I wish I didn't have that vision of chocolate chips cookies in my head now. I think all talk of food should be banned here, haha! Have a great weekend!


pollyanna on 04/13/2003:
Gawd I understand about those Cheetos....and Monty Python! And I have also been craving some different things. But if we hang in there, it passes (no pun intended)!

I think it is time to include some crunches to my whole plan of life!

peace, pollyanna :)

Hi Everyone!

For my exercise yesterday I did a 40 min jog. About three-quarters of the way through I thought I'd extend it to an hour. However, it was getting dark and I didn't. Which is just as well, because I hadn't jogged that long in quite some time and so my right knee is just a bit sore today. The first 3 minutes were the hardest. I don't know why that is, but I just wanted to stop and give up. I wasn't all that winded and the breathing got much better, thank goodness:-)

My food choices weren't so great, but I suppose I'm always going to have days like that. Planning meals helps, and making sure I eat every couple hours does too.

I hope you're having a good exercise day!
