Weight: 112.5

Thank you all for being so supportive I will reply when I am home this afternoon :)

8:30am Cliff bar before jog - 250

10:30 after jog grapefruit 100 and strawberries 100


Noon Brunch with a few friends I see occasionally: probably to include potatoes :) and healthy food but satisfying

Then home ad I want to do some extra laundry..did it yesterday but I have more and also need to fix a comforter cover and sew on buttons...I want to be home this afternoon

6:15pm Then a movie out east a bit - I didn't know she'd pick such a late time - but hey should be fun :)

2100 today amazingly even with overeating...sorta a day of doing things with friends but not really feeling connected all day with them as I don't know them as well....but happy to be invited... Usually I am not out too late Sundays with work Monday but it really shouldn't be too late :)

2100 2day avg.

Progress as of today: 1.5 lbs lost so far, only 4.5 lbs to go!

Donkey on 04/29/2018:
Ooo sounds like a fun, filled day. Tell us what movie you saw when you get the chance!

horn_of_plenty on 04/29/2018:
Avengers .... wow it's going to be almost 3 hours !!!!

horn_of_plenty on 04/29/2018:
I really went to the movie to be social lol to do something with friends - but - actually here writing to you during it since nobody is in back of me my phone light isn't that disturbing :). I'd rather be productive here and use this time wisely than try to watch the entire 3 hour Movie lol :) still sorta happy to be out and do some driving actually !!

horn_of_plenty on 04/29/2018:
About the friend stuff I appreciate your kind words on my earlier entry :) now that I realize that Ricky isn't going to be a friend I can see much anymore due to us not meshing well anymore and his wanting to control most things and me - seems it will be a year of me being more open to going out with friends I may not be as close with and / or a year(s) ahead of possibly meeting someone new to do things with - preferably a man to share more than just outdoor activities with - I do long for a man in my life - so we'll see :)

horn_of_plenty on 04/29/2018:
lol I watched maybe half the movie tops makes no sense to me these cartoons lol I prefer a good drama or comedy :) still sorta happy I made the effort to drive out here and accept the invite ! I think this will be a year of accepting more invites....

bearcountrygg on 04/29/2018:
My mending never seems to end either.

horn_of_plenty on 04/29/2018:
Still need to mend it....needs more buttons back on the comforter cover....so comforter doesn't come out of it...

graindart on 04/29/2018:
I used to love movies and still enjoy taking my girls to the movie theater on occasion because they seem to enjoy it as an occasional "treat". But now my attention span just doesn't last past around 45 minutes for movies or tv shows. Even if it's a really good movie I was looking forward to, 45 minutes in my mind starts to wander to other things. That works fine when I'm at home and can just pause it and come back at a later time or different day, but not so much in the theater.

horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2018:
it's nice to watch a movie at home and get up for pee breaks, etc.

this movie, avengers, isn't my taste in movies but i decided to go out since i had been invited to go as a way to see my friends at bit more - i feel my relationships are strained and that need to make an effort to see friends more. i watched a most half the movie, spent the rest of the time on my phone bc i was in the corner with nobody in back of me, lol.

graindart on 04/29/2018:
Getting together with less close friends that you normally wouldn't is often a good way to meet new people. That's actually how I met my wife. A friend invited me to her birthday party get-together. We weren't real close friends and I wasn't overly interested in the birthday party, but decided to be polite and drop by for a little bit. That's the night I met my future wife. She was just back from college and wasn't overly interested in going to the party, but just went to be polite. That was almost 20 years ago, how time flies......

horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2018:
that's a really nice story...it's my goal to meet some new people and see friends i haven't seen in awhile this year...need to make some grand changes in my relationships.

Progress as of today: 1.5 lbs lost so far, only 4.5 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 04/28/2018:
Your neighborhood must have an interesting history?

Home kombucha and banana 150

Breakfast: coffee 50, small piece muffin 100, wrap 50, avocado 160, salami 100. peanuts.

Lunch: buying it - will be good whatever it is :) huge tasty salad with a small serving of roasted rib 700 or so.

Snack:trying to keep it lighter, going to be a later night out...100 cal for fruit / coffee

4:30pm light meal: protein bar 200 

1700  before leaving work around 6pm...:-), very good!

Snacking probably the rest of the night and probably on lighter / chocolate / candy items / light beer.


Bought a ticket to see a broadway show tonight after work, just me, it was a deal.  Will update when i find out which show :) 


Also, I am happy because the next month, May and even June, looks to be active and busy with lovely and fun plans :) yup, already. Welcome, SPRING!


and the cast is mostly Men...liking that!...takes place in like 15th Century France...i'm liking all of it !...It's the Story of Joan of Arc :) very cool.

i'm going alone to the show specifically bc i asked friends multiple times if they were interested / free on certain dates and they weren't and i just wanna do something i've wanted to do...without having to wait for a future opporutnity. so instead of always waiting, i'm ready to do things myself these days. half the weekend will go like this, too...Sunday is with friends.

too many times i don't do things because of dependency on others...i'm going to start doing more by myself so i can enjoy more...it'd be nice to do it with someone, but that opportunity isn't always available for a single person.

Around 2200.

Weekly Avg is good around 2140 per day and lots of good walking after work on Friday going to the theater and then a little walk home from the bus and weather was decent not too cold !

Progress as of today: 1.5 lbs lost so far, only 4.5 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 04/27/2018:
Show sounds like fun....have a nice evening!!!

happy-1 on 04/27/2018:
Fun! What a story!

Donkey on 04/27/2018:
I hope you had a good time! I can relate to feeling like there's nobody to do anything with. I've always kept to myself, so I didn't have a large pool of people to draw from. I had a hard time doing things by myself (young, lack of confidence, lack of money, etc.), so I got married. Fast forward 23 years and I still have trouble finding people to do things with. My husband and I don't have many likes in common and with his health, his participation in many things is quite limited now :-(

horn_of_plenty on 04/29/2018:
Yeah I've always enjoyed having one or two close friends ....

Today I went jogging and had brunch - total overeating fest - and a movie with people - seems fun but at the same time lately I wish for someone to feel closer with - to be intimate with - a friend and lover - who also likes some space like I enjoy mine - I hope to continue thru life and enjoy the ups and downs and meet more people and friends and a man still that is a compliment to myself :)

horn_of_plenty on 04/26/2018:
lately still averaging 2050 or more calories per week, but seriously trying to snack less and eat more at specified times than all morning or all day...it feels much better too :)

1500 is not the total ;) for today!

but boy does it feel better to not eat always to the point of bloating...this was a great week overall!

Maria7 on 04/26/2018:
Coffee? Yes, of course!

horn_of_plenty on 04/26/2018:
it's available 24/7 at work with milk pretty much always there too....i call that a GOOD DEAL!!!!! yes, please!

Donkey on 04/26/2018:
I boiled eggs this morning, after reading your post (and after donkey daughter said she just took the last egg)!

Looks like a good day!

horn_of_plenty on 04/27/2018:

LOL, i learned a lesson, no more putting eggs in freezer bc i seem to forget to take them out after a few minutes! lol!

and guess what, i left late purposely so i had time to boil more again this morning <3

great minds think alike :)

enjoy your day, Jdonk!

2000 :-)  today! SUCCESS.

4day 2120 - good!

I stuck entirely to the plan above today for food...and it feels GREAT!

I hope to see more of hammy Teddy Lady tonight :) So far, she's GREAT at hiding!


So i'm doing this work, very slow process, and got hungry all morning and now i realize right now that i'm not hungry but totally wanted food as a delay tactic....so glad i'm not reaching it....and waiting till noon to walk and then eat. i'll be working on sticking to my gut these months...and not reaching for something as often at work throughout the morning i'm going to try to have less snacks...like 2 but not more than that in a 5hr period from 7am-12pm.


I have a union meeting tonight at 6pm...i think i'll come home to eat before it? or maybe just eat out before it? beause i want to again go to sleep early after this meeting so i'll be ready for a good gym session tomorrow night...once again, i'm planning for a LONG walk home tonight, 1.5 mi. I'm really trying to get my walking up during the week...I don't think i'm ready to jog during the week yet or want to yet as the walk is 1.5 mi which is simiar to me trying to do my 2mi walk/jog...i'd rather keep walking after work until May, unless i have a day off (FRIDAY afternoon i will plan a jog bc i am off from work - unless it rains!) then, i'll actuallly go to the gym and use the treadmill / bike / stairs, i've decided maybe i can do like 10 min on each one :)


I got GREAT sleep & actually woke up & GOT OUT OF BED from my alarm. I changed the music from a light Jazz station (which was playing for perhaps a month) back to pop last night bc the signal was coming out fuzzy not for any other reason...but...the pop is better for waking up, I realized! NO MORE LIGHT JAZZ in morning to wake up to!





Progress as of today: 1 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 04/24/2018:
YES...it is really working for me...delaying eating until a planned time is quite empowering!!!! You Go Girl!!!

horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2018:
really hard at this desk job...would be awesome though to overcome this.

bearcountrygg on 04/24/2018:
It just occurred to me that the little gal may be more active at night and sleep during the day....that just may be the way she is....

horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2018:
oh, this is the life of a hamster..they are more nocturnal :) last night i fixed the wheel and it was totally silent.

graindart on 04/24/2018:
Had miso soup myself yesterday. Good job on sticking to your meal plan.

horn_of_plenty on 04/25/2018:
Sticking to my plan is for me one of the hardest things to do :)

horn_of_plenty on 04/25/2018:
and when i do...it's a great feeling before you go to bed and when i get up the next day...and i cannot wait to continue with weightloss now.

Donkey on 04/24/2018:
You mentioned "hunger" as a delay tactic. I had a similar experience today -- not exactly a delay tactic, but a coping mechanism gone awry just the same. I'll comment more about it in my own diary. But just wanted to let you know you aren't alone!

horn_of_plenty on 04/25/2018:
this has been a huge and horrible habit of mine since my senior year of high school i remember it starting. just horrible a decision to turn to food instead of just getting to the task...

however, now that i've realized it the past couple of days and wrote it here / admitted it to myself, i notice lately in the afternoon a lack of hunger when i used to be...i think i'm starting to notice a few differences of real hunger vs not...still learning myself.

Weight: 113.0

7am crappy Breakfast (forgot my banana): 2 girl scout cookies 150, peanuts 100, kombucha 50, coffee 50: 350. 

9am Snack: turkey burger 150, wrap 60, avocado 160: 400., piece of clementine, more fruit :)

Lunch: from home: matzah 120, eggplant mix big serving 250, my fried tofu 150-200. 550-600, good...and planning to step out for a 10 min walk or so before i eat.

Snack: blackberries 100


Long walk today from bus is my exercise - over 1.5 miles :)

Dinner: tons of healthy food at home, bed early.

Indulged for dinner 850 - fine ! 2350.

2150 3day.


of course, my face is a bit broken out from what i've been eating...makes sense :) so i'll be working on improving it this week!


Hamster, a tan short haired female named Teddy, is hiding a lot in its tubes, but i see it also running on wheel, eating and drinking. So, we're off to a great start with my Teddy Lady. This one can run FAST - as in WAYYYY too fast to catch...i cannot right now take her out to play...and when putting her in a ball prob on weekend, i'll have to do it over the cage or she WILL run and i will not be able to catch her. She's only around 2in big right now, very tiny, and cute.

2050 weekend avg, very good.

I texted Ricky although i said i wouldn't...he seems fine...like usual, he overreacted with me telling me never to text him...he said he could get together to talk over things so i'm not confused, but i'm not eager to see him today or this week, really...i should make him wait.

Progress as of today: 1 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

graindart on 04/23/2018:
You're allergic to girl scout cookies. Me too. You get a pimple or two on your face, but my whole body just swells up. I'm sure it's not that I put on fat from eating several boxes in a row, it's got to be that I'm allergic.......

Horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2018:
Seriously, Girl Scouts are NOT concerned with the health factor of those cookies! Killers!

bearcountrygg on 04/23/2018:
Teddy sounds like fun......she will be a stitch to watch......2 inches is tiny....she is just a baby....a hyperactive baby....LOL

Horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2018:
Ok, this hamster is sooo fast that i can hear her drinking from her water bottle, i'll get up to see her, and she'll already have run away and is back in hiding before i ever noticed !

She's FAST!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2018:
good thing is she's a VERY DEEP SLEEPER!

horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2018:
i'm thinking it's good she sleeps deep as a sign of good health...lol...it's really not that big a deal :)

Donkey on 04/23/2018:
She must be a young one, at 2 inches long. Yes, they can be so very quick, but once she gets settled, she'll adapt a little.

A good day - in spite of the bump in the road with breakfast. Well done!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2018:
I have seen her twice so far, while she's in the wheel...she just stands there, so still, scared stiff by me! I hope she's not a dwarf hamster, i don't think so. They are just little in general.

Yeah, she's just a little baby thing. very small and cute.

Weight: 113.0

Breakfast strawberries 50, whole grain cream of wheat 150, chocolate stevia, cocoa 50, almond milk 30, Extra powder stevia, butter 70, kombucha 80. Approx 450

Going to Unveiling of grandmas stone at cemetery only 5min away and a brunch after with family at diner just the immediate family for all of this - 5 of us total for all. I am thinking to buy a new hamster after And gym after that.

Brunch around 11:30-noon: big english muffin with butter 250, half a huge turkey burger 150, cooked mushrooms a lot with ketchup 100, piece of lox 100 at most, tastes of other people's food 50, some cole slaw 50, pickle, coffee 50.750, 800 tops.


snack: ice cream and peanut butter (not the best snack and too much ice cream). 450.

1700, fine.

after gym: will try to make it light...no need to eat more than 2050 today, really.!!!

if i had a lighter snack it would be better. the ice cream was 330 calories, but a whole pint. not really necessary. it's breyers, they sell low calorie pints.

2100 i think.

Progress as of today: 1 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 04/22/2018:
Awww...Have a nice day with your family....and YES to a new Hammy!!!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/22/2018:
got her :) Her name is Teddy. She's a short haired hamster. and light brown like my old one! i really like the light brown / tan colored ones.

graindart on 04/22/2018:
Loved having hamsters when I was a kid, but never liked cleaning the cages. And because of that, sometimes they began to stink pretty bad.

It's funny how reading something gets your mind thinking. Now I'm seriously considering looking into buying a hamster and cage system for my girls.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/22/2018:
I did buy a new hamster today :) I already had the cage and everything from the previous one that probably died a month ago or so :) they really do not require dr appts. no nail or hair grooming at all...you are supposed to play with them a little bit and let them run around in their ball most days for extra exercise outside the cage. and any treats besides their daily food is optional. so it's really great that the daily needs and $$ is limited. i clean the cage around a week to every two weeks at MOST, usually 10 days is the most.

Hamsters have got to be one of the EASIEST pets...and cheaper pets compared to most...the bedding has a tendency to get around on the floor a little bit, but otherwise not a big deal really.

it'll be nice for your girls to take care of some of it - my dad used to clean the cage for us, but i wish he made us help him a little bit.

i got a hamster bc i enjoy have something living in my apt with me! and it's cute to hold when on the couch, however, this one jumps out of my hand really fast...i probably will not get into holding it for another week...i'll let it get used to its cage first.

i clean the cage with vinegar and water mix which is very natural and cost effective. instead of paper towels, i mostly clean with washable clothes. and use very little actual paper towels since i used to waste a lot of paper towels in the past :)

if cleaned weekly or every 10 days, the cage will not smell :)

you may know most of what i wrote :)

horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2018:
oh, my sister and I were around 7 and 10 i think when we got ours. maybe slightly older..

bearcountrygg on 04/22/2018:
Our kids loved theirs...he got out once for a couple of days...but they found him again thankfully...he apparently never left the upstairs.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/22/2018:
praying i don't lose this one like that...she is extremely fast and jumped straight out of my hand and fell to the floor at the pet store....i'll leave her alone for a few days until she gets used to her cage..

Donkey on 04/22/2018:
I hope that you have an enjoyable family outing, as you remember and honor your grandma. It's rather nice that this is being treated with some ceremony and celebration of her life. I know you loved her very much.

A new hamster - WOW!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/22/2018:
yes, you got it all right :)

and while we were there, my grandmother's mother and father (dad's grandparents) were also buried in the same cemetery so we walked to visit their stones as well...i'm glad we could support my dad and do it as a family.

yup, a new hamster. this one is fast...leaving it alone for now bc it was extremely scared once i got it out of the box and into it's cage....they say to let them be for a week or so, so this is what i'm doing for now. I'm not even sure where it's hiding...bc i cannot even see it at the moment.!!

Maria7 on 04/22/2018:
Hope you have a good day, HOP.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/22/2018:
i am for sure...just gotta get to the gym before it gets too late.

bearcountrygg on 04/22/2018:
I'm glad you got Teddy.....she is just scared right now...but she may have a different personality that GB...........she should settle down.

horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2018:
awww, thank you for the thoughts <3 so sweet !

(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 113.0

Today's plan is 2050.

9pm 250. Late night fruit and whipped cream sf

7:30am 330 whipped cream and protein muffin 250 blueberries pint

9:30am Almonds 180

12:30 plum, whipped cream, peanut butter 250


1350 before 2mi jog walk in warm sun at a track at another much nicer college - this one if private and the other is public and there's a huge difference aesthetically with a better maintained running track! Picking up some veggies and going jogging after !

After jog was a huge meal of mostly veggies but huge serving.

Cabbage cold salad 50 Cooked green beans 100 Cauliflower risotto with cheese 250 Eggplant dish 100 500

1850. And later in evening I broiled sausages.

2000- very good - perhaps tomorrow I'll try for even lower calories - really I wish to not have to lower them - hopefully extra cardio will start to show!!

Relaxing tonight instead of the gym.

Progress as of today: 1 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 04/21/2018:
You can do it!!!!

Donkey on 04/21/2018:
Hope you have a good jog today! :-) Food choices look pretty good. Question: Is that actual whipped cream or is it that Cool-Whip stuff? (HUGE taste difference in my opinion... so just wondering)

horn_of_plenty on 04/21/2018:
It is sugar free cool whip as lately I am craving it - it'll lesson up :)

happy-1 on 04/21/2018:
Mmmm whipped cream

Maybe switch to whipped coconut cream with stevia and areowroot for the fat burn and brain function support?

Happy Friday!

Home: kombucha 50

7:30 Work: banana 120, cookie 80, coffee 50 

300..these girl scout cookies are simply amazing...the have crunch and two layers of cream in the middle...science has proven that the best treats are crunchy and soft in the middle..now i see why.

9:30 Breakfast: wrap 60, avocado 160, egg 80: 300..healthy..perhaps one two more cookie. 150..450

late 1pm Lunch: protein and veggies: nice salad 150-200, 3 halves of rice paper filled with veggies, avocado, protein 500? not more than 700 total. and 1 cookie. 800

1550, indulgent but decided the week would still be perfect with 2050 cal today...!

Walking 1.5mi home today from bus :) to jog tomorrow at noon.

Dinner: leftover fried tofu 150, wrap 60,peppers 100, mayce 1/2 pint of light ice

dinner was peppers (a ton!) 100, wrap 60 with mustard and salami 110, ice cream 170, and whipped cream 130: 570.


7day: 2070 which is good!

stick-to-it attitude can bring me back...and help me lose 5lbs!..still sticking with it, but a 2050 type of day.

now that ricky is giving me hell and told me not to ever call him lol...it doesn't bother me but i miss having this close friend to hang out with (he was annoyed i didn't want to be a girlfriend / didn't do certain things he wanted....not important right now...)


anyways, now that i'm fully single, on weekends i plan to pay closer attention to what i'm eating and stay on track...i want to actually have a little bit of a deficit both tomorrow and sunday as well as next weekend of which i'm taking a 3 day weekend at the end of next week...Friday off to get some things done. last time i did this was just a month ago and it feels REALLY GOOD to have another day off just a month later..so i plan to stick to this, it seems to work right now. gives me an opportunity to make sure i try to also fit in exercise around the times i take off...moving forward...

so for tomorrow & sunday, for calories i have a goal of 1800 per day...let's see how i hold up....! slowly but surely i am getting back on track.

Progress as of today: 1 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

No girl scouts to buy from this year......that may be a first.

horn_of_plenty on 04/20/2018:
they have gotten better at producing cookies you'll crave!

bearcountrygg on 04/20/2018:
oh oh...that's not good!

horn_of_plenty on 04/20/2018:
yes, very hard to stop at one, especially when it says that 2 are a serving size lol.

Donkey on 04/20/2018:
I stay away from Girl Scout cookies - oh way too easy to eat too many.

horn_of_plenty on 04/20/2018:
yes, they are def designed that way purposely!

graindart on 04/20/2018:
Used to eat a box of Thin Mints in a couple hours. The box of Samoas might've lasted a couple days. I think cookies are the one food I have almost no portion control over. I either eat none or the entire container, there is no middle ground for me.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/20/2018:
yeah,they are NO GOOD!

Donkey on 04/20/2018:
I'm sorry to hear about Ricky... I know you said that you're not worried about it, so I won't either. Well, sometimes these rocky relationships give us just the PUSH we need.

bearcountrygg on 04/21/2018:
Sorry that you and Ricky are on the outs...but if it isn't working than it isn't working...life goes on and new opportunities come up. At any rate...it gives you precious time to concentrate on yourself.

Aaaaaaaaaaw.... I feel you. Wish I hadn't gone there with my ex.
