snack: almonds & big apple: 300

good morning. pants are now very tight. will have to make adjustments or I will be facing worse consequences next week. 

Good, satisfying breakfast (the only way to break binging cycle in my opinion): 2 small eggs 120, 2 slices thick fiber one white bread 200, 1/2 avocado 160, 2 strawberries 20: 500, perfect.

snack: one of my bars, tea. 200 or so.

lunch: chicken, spinach, other half avocado, 2 slices of the same bread as in the AM: 600 or so, good.

snack: big apple, maybe also some almonds: 300

dinner/snack: maybe one more bar of the more natural, healthier kind. 210 or so.

If i do the light bar for dinner: calories will be 1800 which is more what I need to be having.  As you can see, breakfast & lunch are pretty balanced and healthy. I did take a multivitamin, extra vitamin D as well, & need to buy the tums for increase my calcim intake as well (this is all on doctor's recommendation)

good day, goodnight to all of you.

I will be emphasizing calorie count, and not just counting as I go through the day, I will have to plan better now - as to be more in control of the calories I am ingesting.  My goal is to eat around 1800-1900 daily (maybe less if I can manage without binging) over the course of 1-2 months.  I do have a goal to lose a few pounds (I will be able to tell by how my jeans/pants fit) by summer (July). 

My goal is to not continue any further weightgain, I've reached my upper limits as my clothing is a bit too tight now & hasn't been like this for a long time (around 1 yr I was able to totally maintain the weight I was at before this injury)  The year before consisted of a healthy 10 lb loss.  I had found my weight EASY to maintain & I was regularly eating aroune 2200 or even slightly higher calories per day!  so, maybe eating 1800 will be fine, even 1900. lol. I have bad luck with binging & don't want what happened this weekend to happen again in the next couple months.

I know the feeling and you sound really determined to keep this in check. Have a great day.


V on 04/22/2013:
I am sure you will meet all your goals you have set..Have a good day <3

...handling the stresses of life poorly by binging. today it was only the only "fattening" foods i had in my apartment...lots of sesame oil on lots of bread/pitas & salted pumpkin seeds. after having breakfast already.  maybe it's a good thing i don't keep any sweets or unhealthy snacks in this apartment! still, i've overeaten a ton this AM.

upper body weights, no swimming (again!)

calories: probably around 3500.

hey all. happy wednesday. I went to physical therapy (just electric stimulation to the muscle, not actual exercise) and then had a healthy dinner at my apt. i started to drive to the gym but made a wrong turn and got lost. it was close to 8:30, which it is now & I decided it would be best to go to bed early & get some much needed rest. tomorrow is a new day & I will swim.

calories around 2100. no exercise except for some situps/abs

i definitely got some fruits and veggies in.  good fats including avocado, olive oil, and even almonds. good carbs.  good proteins including eggs, egg whites, chicken.  only one protein bar. one cup coffee.  even a plain greek yogurt.

wow. a good day. no exercise though :-(

I felt so much better this morning compared to yesterday.  Even more, I felt great after the weight routine I did at the gym yesterday.  Today's plan is to NOT be lazy, do some leg work (just upper as I cannot do much else) at lunch & swim in the evening, stopping by my apartment first to see if the goggles arrived...I ordered them with quick shipping as it's impossible to swim laps for long periods of time without them.  My first two pairs were dollar store goggles and broke after 1 or 2 uses!

breakfast: almonds 150, hot fiber cereal with almond milk 200, strawberries 50: 400, good.

snack: bar??

snack: bar??

800...

lunch: satisfying: bread, chicken, maybe even a slice of mozzerella cheese...some leftover sauteed spinach?

well, i am still concerned with my legs, they aren't feeling too well yet at all.  even a little walking tends to bother them after 10-15 min.

workout: 30 minutes in pool. can't wait till i can swim the freestyle stroke well!  mostly breastroke.

calories: too much sugar, around 2250-2300.

Glad you are feeling better - good idea getting some good googles. Happy swimming and have a good weight workout - careful with those legs! :o)

woke up feeling very drunk, even though i didn't even have a sip of alcohol....off to work :-/  (I KNOW WHY - I WAS SOMEHOW VERY DEHYDRATED...I HAD FOOD BUT NOT MUCH WATER LAST NIGHT, NOW THAT I REMEMBER...BC I WAS FEELING SO BLOATED AT DINNER...)

breakfast: oatmeal with almond milk, 2 servings almonds: 500

snack: bar, coffee with lots of regular milk

lunch: chicken & sauteed broccoli raab, leftover matza and small bag regular Lay's chips.

snack: roasted almonds 150

snack: apple and an orange pepper 180

light dinner: protein shake from gym 200

2 slices of wheat bread.

total: around 2000 = PERFECT. THERE IS NOT SUCH A THING AS DRASTIC DIETING OR REDUCING CALORIES, IT WILL NEVER WORK FOR ME.  SO I AM JUST TRYING TO MAKE IT, BY EATING AS MUCH AS I CAN WITHOUT GAINING MORE WEIGHT. IT'S WORKING, A LIL, I GAINED WEIGHT ALREADY BC I WAS EATING IN FULL EXCESS, SO NOW I'M TRYING TO BE A LITTLE MORE MODERATE, BUT NOT SO MUCH THAT I FEEL DEPRIVED. I WILL FAIL IF I DO THAT!

bed!

oh, i plan to do upper body weights today at the gym....anything to get out of swimming!!!....and tomorrow i'm getting out of swimming too..well...maybe...i may decide on doing only leg weights after work, and a very litttle bit, just some thigh work, maybe...
