(Simply healthy eating - low fat - high fibre)
Weight: 143.0

Good day ladies!  

A bit of a backache from all that raking of moss yesterday but not bad.  

My hub does almost all the cooking and never uses a recipe or measures anything.  He uses his own judgement and is a great cook! We eat a lot of curry but not all are the same.  He uses different vegetables, beans or Quorn, etc.  The chili is made with Quorn mince (a veggie ground beef substitute).  It's very hard to determine the number of calories in these dishes and I know I'm overestimating, but better than underestimating!  I've looked at the ingredients with the highest number of calories per 100g and in all these dishes it's very close to 100 calories per 100g.  Easy.  So I weigh out 300g of the curry or chili as one serving-300 calories.  Rice is separate.  (He stopped using curry paste many months ago when I started complaining about how much fat is in it)

Wish we had England's weather today!  We've got fog and mist and no sun, although it is about 20C.  

Love the support here!  Fantastic group of ladies!  

Workout:

  • 45 mins tae bo and jump rope
  • weights
  • ab crunches
  • leg lifts with ankle weights

Menu for today:

B:  porridge, raisins & almonds & 5g sugar, skimmed milk, tea with milk - 294

L:  turkey, lite mayo, lettuce on 2 slices bread; fat free yogurt, 1 diet yogurt cereal bar - 283

S:  apple - 95

D:  veggie curry, rice, salad, drink - 476

S:  glass of wine - 130 (might change my mind and have a couple of those yogurt bars at 144 cals instead)

TOTAL:  1278

 

Progress as of today: 24 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 09/29/2011:
I saw the Quorn mince at the store the other day and was debating getting some. I think I will try it next time, I could easily sub it out to cut back on our meat intake. I hope you have a great day!


getmebackto150 on 09/29/2011:
I think your estimating is a good plan, and I agree better to over estimate than under, just make sure you aren't overestimating by more than a little as you should never go below 1200 calories!!!


glycrina on 09/29/2011:
you seem like such a lovely person. You are always so positive and I can read the smile through your entries. I lived in London for almost two years and I lived on curries, indian food, halal kababeries, chips with vinegar (which were just really big french fries) pints of cider and tea with milk (or course I smoked like chimney too) but I was walking everywhere so I don't remember gaining weight. I used to love Nandos (the chicken place) because they gave free refills on soda. I don't know if they have Nando's in Scotland. I saw a concert in Aberdeen which I thought was in Ireland. Anyway, I am just reminiscing. Have a great day.


sweetpea1977 on 09/29/2011:
How nice to have a husband who knows how to cook. My hubby is pretty limited on what he can cook adequately. One time, I asked him to help me make the breading for fried chicken and he says "mostly flour, right?" :-) Thats ok though, I love to cook. It is a passion of mine. I just wish hubby was more adventurous in trying new foods. He doesnt like vegetarian "meats", he doesnt like most ethnic dishes (except some Mexican, a couple Asian dishes, and most Italian dishes, ha). He is missing out!

Estimations are good. I think as long as you're getting a full range of nutrients (whole grains, produce, lean proteins, healthy fats), eating slowly, and stop when you are satisfied, you will be ok. :)


Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/29/2011:
lol, bananas have a lot of calories compared to all other fruits. this one was not small!

(Simply healthy eating - low fat - high fibre)
Weight: 143.0

Good day ladies!  The sun is trying to come out now and at 12.30pm it's 18C.  I've finished my workout and am eating lunch (bad girl - not very mindful eating!).  My hub is outside using a moss puller kind of lawn mower and needs it all raked up.  I volunteered so it'll be an extra workout.  Need some fresh air anyway.

I thank this group for helping me stay motivated and for my progress!  I see the light at the end of the tunnel and it's brilliant!  I mentioned to my hub this morning that every decade birthday I get motivated and have a successful weight loss, but within a year I usually start heading back where I started.  At age 40 I went from 150+ to 120.  At age 50 I went from about 155 to 132.  Had other losses in between but never quite reached the goal weight.  Now I'm about to turn 60.  My hub asked if I'd repeat the usual cycle and I've decided NO WAY! I'm keeping it off this time!  

Workout:

  • 45 mins tae bo and jump rope
  • 45 mins exercise bike
  • raking - how long is TBD

Menu for today:

B:  porridge, strawberries, skimmed milk, tea with milk - 253

L:  soup, fat free yogurt, clementine, grapes - 345

D:  veggie curry, rice, salad, drink - 476

S:  light ice cream with low fat whipped cream - 190  (might add something else since I'm getting an extra workout and still have some calories to spare anyway)  :-)

TOTAL:  1266 (+ ?)

Did more than 3 hours of raking moss so I had an extra treat - a 72 calorie yogurt covered diet bar.  So that brings the total for the day to 1338.  Not bad.

Progress as of today: 24 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

V on 09/28/2011:
That's right! No repeating the cycle, the weight gain is history :) have a wonderful day!!


Umpqua on 09/28/2011:
The moss raking sounds like major hard work! RE repeating the cycle, I think if you give yourself more flexibility this time around that will be helpful too. I find that maintaining within a goal range of 5 or so pounds works best for me, and it keeps me from freaking out and getting disappointed if the scale moves around a little. And I know if I've gone over the high end of my range then I need to do damage control and get things in check. I have also adjusted the maintenance range upward as I've gotten older - maintaining a weight below 120 pounds just isn't realistic for me anymore. I'm sure I will need to keep adjusting it too. Have a good one!


sweetpea1977 on 09/28/2011:
Wow, excellent exercise for today! Menu looks great too!

You're giving yourself an amazing birthday present. There is no better gift than the gift of good health!!


getmebackto150 on 09/28/2011:
great attitude and good job volunteering for extra exercise!!! Have a great day!!


biscottibody59 on 09/28/2011:
You're doing great--and raking all that time does deserve a treat--woo-hoo!


moogy on 09/28/2011:
Good for you grannyannie, at our age we need to get to a weight that is healthy for us. Otherwise we end up with walkers and all that paraphernalia that they give old people. We may be getting on a little but we still want to look and feel good. I am loving your resolve and commitment to the group. Thank you for stopping by and supporting me:)

Thank YOU!! You are such a wonderful addition to this group, you know I graciously accept your lovely compliment but you are an inspiration/role model to alot of the women here :) I am not even sure where your travels in the States will bring you, but if you are in the St. Pete area, I would love to meet you and give you a big hug :) I am so happy you found this site :)

You are smart to get the weight off & decide that it won't return. That has been my downfall. And I agree that DD has been so helpful.

Weight: 143.0

Good morning ladies!  

Grocery shopping this morning, so no workout yet.  Time for lunch now so I'll workout this afternoon once it's sufficiently digested.

Workout:  60 minutes exercise bike, weights, abs, leg lifts with ankle weights 

Dreich (dreary) weather today.  Drizzly and grey.  Supposed to improve the rest of the week.  Might even get to go outside with short sleeves!    That's a BIG deal here!

Really enjoyed my light ice cream last night.  I opted to cut out the cappuccino and have more ice cream and to add a bit of low fat whipped cream and few chocolate cappuccino sprinkles.  Went a wee bit over my 1300 cals. But it was sooooo good!

The way I'm going I won't have any trouble reaching my goal before I go the US for xmas.  I think I may lower my goal weight by a couple of pounds as well as I think 5 more pounds will not be quite enough. 

Menu for today:

B:  porridge, raisins & almonds and 5 g sugar, skimmed milk, tea with milk - 294

L:  2 veggie sausages, mustard, 2 bread, yoghurt - 310

S:  clementine, grapes - 101

D:  soup, melba toast, 15 g peanut butter, salad, drink - 429

S:  latte, diet yoghurt bar - 152

TOTAL:  1286

 

Progress as of today: 24 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 09/27/2011:
Your dessert last night sounds amazing! What type of lowfat whipped cream do you use? (or is it homemade?) I'm going to try making Moogy's tofu whipped cream this week since none of our options here in the States are very appealing except the full fat variety.


sweetpea1977 on 09/27/2011:
Congrats on the weightloss so far. I agree, you will be at your current goal way before Christmas. :)


V on 09/27/2011:
Yep all of your hard work will pay off!! You are doing an amazing job!!

glycrina on 09/27/2011:
Nice! jealous that you are losing weight so quickly. Hoping that it will happen for me soon!


sweetpea1977 on 09/27/2011:
you got that right, maintenance is hard. For me, it was scary, because I would get angry at myself if I saw upward fluctuations. Most of the time they were temporary (period related). Once I reach goal this time, I will give myself what I call a "fluctuation allowance", meaning that I will not get mad at myself as long as I stick inside a certain goal weight range.


V on 09/27/2011:
All my workouts are complete now :)


moogy on 09/27/2011:
Great news on your expected goal achievement, just in time for all the goodies, but at least you will look good eating them!! LOL I am with you 23 for me is perfect weather, the sort of weather when you don't notice what the weather was!! Have a good day grannyannie:)

Good morning ladies!    Looks like some sunshine today.  Didn't see any at all yesterday.  Supposed to get a heat wave in the UK this week and a forecast of 21/70 for Weds.  If so, I'm on my bike!  

Taking a break from tae bo/jump rope this morning and I'll do an hour on my exercise bike while I listen to an audiobook (Ladies Detective Agency series).  

My husband had gone across the water to the big city to visit his uncle so I'm the cook tonight.  Making soup.  

Menu for today:

B:  porridge, raisins & almonds, 5g sugar, skimmed milk, tea with milk - 294

L:  2 veggie sausages, 2 bread, mustard, fat free yoghurt - 310

S:  banana - 90

D:  homemade veg/brown rice/lentil soup, melba toast, salad, drink - 339

S:  latte with skimmed milk, chocolate sprinkles, sugar; light ice cream - 220

Umpqua on 09/26/2011:
Wonderful food plan as always! Is the picture already uploaded someplace else? If so you should be able to use the image button when you edit your entry and just plug in the URL and it will appear - I did that on my entry today. DD also gives you the option adding pictures directly from your hard drive. I hope this helps!


Umpqua on 09/26/2011:
If the pictures appear huge, you can resize after loading to something like 500 width by 400 height in the boxes below where you enter the URL info. I did that even with posting from Photobucket.

moogy on 09/26/2011:
I was really laughing out loud at the high of your heat wave!! It is going to be that temp today and at 9am I have the heater on and the throw over electric banket on me!! I can only remember being really hot twice when I was growing up in England, once in Aberwrystwyth (we had a caravan there!) and once in the back of my Auntie garden. I wonder how hot it really was now I live in a country where most people don't consider it hot unless it is over 35. I do not belong to that group and anything over 25 is too hot for me. I am like a hermit in the Summer. Enjoy your lovely day grannyannie:)

I love how well you plan and I read your bio again to get myself motivated and out of this slump. I am 58 years old, but not retired yet.

I'll post my foodplan. Have a wonderful day!

Weight: 145.0

Good morning, ladies!  Went grocery shopping this morning which is my workout time, so I'll do a long exercise bike this afternoon.  No junk food, not even 98 cal baked crisps!  No guests for dinner in the near future.  Found some lower calorie yoghurts than what I've been buying.

I've been trying to make up for my binge by cutting my calories to below 1200 but it's just too low.  I managed it day before yesterday but I'll just continue with my usual 1200-1300.

Menu for today:
  • B:  porridge, raisins & almonds, 5g sugar, skimmed milk, tea with milk - 294
  • L:  2 slices turkey bacon, 1 slice low fat cheese, 2 bread, low fat cottage cheese - 276
  • S:  strawberries & grapes - 89
  • D:  chicken breast in a curry sauce, rice, salad - 460
  • S:  Melba toast, low fat yoghurt - 123
TOTAL:  1240 

Progress as of today: 22 lbs lost so far, only 7 lbs to go!

suziemom on 09/22/2011:
Looks I a really Yummy food plan.


getmebackto150 on 09/22/2011:
Honestly, as long as you stay at 1200, your binge won't even affect your long term progress... Its never a good idea to go below 1200 as that puts the body in "starvation" mode:( I'm TOTALLY jealous of your quorn prices... I would eat it SO SO much more often if it were that cheap... I think its a European based company, so maybe that is why its cheaper there??? Have a good one:)


getmebackto150 on 09/22/2011:
Wow, you guys defnitely have WAAAY more products than us... I'm SUPER jealous, but I guess I should be happy we have some, as a vegetarian, its a GODSEND... I read 1 in 5 households in the UK, thats crazy, here, its probably 1 in 1000 if not less, but its SO SO much better than so many of the other meat alternatives out there!


biscottibody59 on 09/22/2011:
Great on the food and exercise (yesterday too)--keep up the good work!


hollybelle on 09/22/2011:
I think it's osteoarthritis that is bothering my knees. You are right, though - strengthening the muscles around the knees does help. I just have trouble walking very far, very fast - they ache. I have been active all my life. The pain in the knees showed up last October after I did 5 Zumba classes in a row (Over 5 days that is) they haven't been the same since. They swelled up pretty big and I had to rest them completely. I try not to take ibuprophen if I don't have to. I love biking and the elliptical trainer doesn't seem to bother them much.


Umpqua on 09/22/2011:
You're menu looks stellar! I have a rough time going below 1200 calories, that sounds perfect to me. Have a good one!

Nice menu and calories and exercise. Looking good grannyannie:) Good to only have acceptable foods in the house, I only have 85% dark choc and even if I wanted to eat more one square is all I can manage, it is so bitter, but stops the urge for snacks and chocolate. Magical stuff!!


getmebackto150 on 09/21/2011:
I've heard that the UK has a lot more variety... Ours is getting a bit better, but you mostly have to go to a specialty foods store, the regular supermarkets have only a couple things... Its REALLY expensive here though... About $6.00 per package... How much does Quorn cost there? I really LOVE it:)

Good morning, ladies!  

Feeling incredibly guilty!  We rarely have junk food in the house (unless we have guests).  However, a friend in the US asked if someone would ship her some British biscuits (cookies) and I volunteered.  So I bought her 8 packets of the 3 types she wanted as well as a big bag of individual packets of Cadbury chocolate buttons for her daughter.  When I took them to the post office they said it would cost £36!  So I took out 5 packets and shipped her 3 which cost nearly £10.  This meant there were 5 packets of biscuits and the chocolate buttons in my house!  A dangerous thing!   

I've been doing well just having an occasional packet of the 75 calorie chocolate buttons as part of my evening treat.  Also keep the 98 calories baked crisps in individual packets for an afternoon or evening treat as part of my daily calorie count.  

Yesterday I had a strong desire for chocolate in the afternoon and ate 2 packets of the buttons.  After dinner I had a strong desire for more of them.  Since my husband was visiting a relative in the city and wouldn't be back until later there was no one to raise an eyebrow and ask me if I really wanted to sabotage my hard fought for weight loss.    So I had 2 more packets of buttons, 2 Tunnocks chocolate wafers, and the last pack of baked crisps!!  I totalled up the damage and was about 750 calories over my daily allowance.  So I feel the need to make up for it by having about 1150 cals instead of close to 1300 for the next few days.  The rest of the Tunnocks and other biscuits are in the rubbish bin.  

On a good note, yesterday I tried on another pair of trousers that have been too small for me for years and they fit!

I am so sorry for the cookie and button fiasco..If the temptation gets to be a bit much give some of them to a friend/neighbor.. What are buttons anyways??

YEP..that is exactly what happens when I have trigger foods in the house LOL I think it is kind of good to know what we can't be around, it's like having another piece of the puzzle and the picture is clearer. Have a great day!

Junk food in the house is definitely a recipe for disaster... I'm the same way:( Moving on and doing well today and forward is definitley the best thing... If you make it a one time slip it will not affect your progress... Maybe you have a friend close by you can give the rest to? I know after I've had a binge like that I need to get the culprit out of the house ASAP!!! Have a great day:)

It's good the rest is in the trash. That's what I would have to do too. At least you kept track, and continued to exercise, and will be moderate for a few days in your calories. Great way to get back on track.

I know what it's like. The other night my husband offered me a ginger cookie to go with a cup of decaf coffee & I it turned out that he had the cookies hidden away & that was the last of them. He knows me well!

We can only get 200g pkts of chocolate buttons. So not a good idea to buy them as I would eat them all in one sitting. Mind you even if they where in small pks I would probably eat them all as well. Can't resist chocolate!! I wonder why buttons are so delicious, maybe the way they just fit between the tongue and the roof of one's mouth!! LOL Well done with throwing out the biscuits, better in the bin than on your thighs!!:)
