breakfast: huge peach, coffee, diet sodas: 180

snack: powerbar, diet waters 250

lunch: microwave HEALTHY meal 400, lots of fiber and well balanced, tea w. milk and equal 50, AND birthday cake (strawberry shortcake) (i think 600 should be a good estimate but i could be SO OFF!, was a medium size piece) for a classmate. cake was worth having, it tasted great. total for lunch: 1050

snack: good, 4 cups diet soda, popcorn 240, yogurt 120: 360 :)

total so far before dinner: 1840...

dinner: not sure but i know i should not limit myself too much bc i'm in one of the moods where it's better to have a limit more than a little less and go crazy later on food. 

dinner:probably a microwave meal and veggies for like 400 more cal...460 cal.

exercise: park :)

i will definitely do weights at the gym tomorrow, i miss them!

many tests tomorrow, 3 in total. but, i really don't care too much about studying too much. it really doesn't matter anymore.

 this weekend i don't so much as want to limit what i eat, but i will also focus on me, relaxing, i want to watch a movie i rented last week, and i may rent one more movie. i don't have labor day plans, and i'm glad, i need to refocus on myself this weekend, badly...

Progress as of today: 8 lbs lost so far, only 2 lbs to go!

well this day has started.  and i must finish it. therapy tonight - good thing.  and psychologist visit also.  I was the one who asked for it bc i want to see the possibility of taking light antidepressants or something.

i just picked all of my nice long nails off last night after i ate my house.  i should not be feeling this way.  i am really, really feeling sad today.  my 27th birthday is in exactly a week from today. and i am not where i want to be, again, another birthday...this isn't good at all! what am i doing? god, please help me.  i do not know what to do anymore.  my body and brain are completely against each other.

breakfast: 170 large peach, large coffee.

snack: bar, diet waters? 250

LUNCH: bar, tea w. milk  280

700...

snack: 420, 20 = 440., LOL, and ice cream 500 :) was good? 940 here

1640.

Dinner: one red pepper 70, microwave wrap 180, large peach 90: around 360 or so....

total: 2,000. that is good.

exercise: bike to the gym, gym elliptical (no weights, no in the mood, at all.)

2317, 34 day average.

i will stop the count as soon as i get to 2250. then, my goal will simply be to lose 3 lbs. well, maybe not a simple goal but not an impossible goal either!

Progress as of today: 8 lbs lost so far, only 2 lbs to go!

loveray on 09/02/2009:
im feelin it for you. i am lost myself again. hope we both find some strength to get out of the mess. xoxo


mskitty on 09/02/2009:
yeah I hate birthdays too. Birthdays and Christmas those are the worst. But its just another day, if you even get a little happy be thankful, if it sucks balls just use it as an excuse for yourself to rise outta the ashes and get back to achieving your goals knowing you deserve to feel good no matter what.


loveray on 09/02/2009:
i agree 100%. god is awake and listening to us, watching us. we are just not letting him do his divine work within us...constantly putting food as a roadblock in the way of the beautiful work to be done. i guess its getting used to living with someone who loves me no matter what- and its so hard to accept! you are right about the plan- and i posted what i am eating:)


Donkey on 09/02/2009:
I assume you are seeing a psychiatrist for the medication consultation. Please mention the binge eating because there are medications for that. (If s/he says no, mention Topamax.)

Please take a nap when you get home instead of eating. The same post-lunch fatigue hits my husband like that too. And me, to some degree. For me it happens when I have too many carbs at lunch. Most days, my husband comes home from working (7a-3p) and takes a nap right away.

Weight: 132.0

2327, 33 day average.

Since my return from vacation, July17th, i've gained about 3 lbs. I am setting out to lose them, and to reach 130. That is the goal. I weigh about 135 now. and I will reach 130 by the end of this month.

Dear God, give me the power to overcome these terrible binges.

today is a new day.  but, is it really? because, you know, all of our actions affect us in the future.  treat your body badly and it will not feel good in the future.  everyday is a brand new day but we are not invincible.

breakfast: filling bowl of cereal and coffee diet cream soda: 350.

snack: vit waters and strawberries: 150

lunch: hot pretzel, ketchup/mustard and tea w. milk/4 equals. : 550 or so.

total so far: 1050  (the sugar highs/lows today were terrible...) all my fault for eating so many carbs and sweets yesterday.

snack: yogurt and diet soft drinks galore: 120

1170

dinner:veggies and packaged fried tofu (has weird amount of fiber and 200 cal. mostly healthy fats) and that is it no matter what. maybe a kombucha for good measure. 400 at most.

1570 calories. good.

exercise: goal: 4 miles.

:)

getting through this.

Progress as of today: 8 lbs lost so far, only 2 lbs to go!

i'm in need of a good nap.

lousy breakfast/snacks: high in carbs, some fiber 400 (but i had two servings pretzels and each serving had a surprising 4 grams of fiber, for a total of 8 grams or 28% of my daily intake, almost 1/3 of the fiber we need-------> that's good.)

1650....will eat up to 1950...oh, and some grapes. so like 50 cal more.

26 day avg calories: 2222....after grapes, 2224.

dinner: oatmeal 80, with egg whites90 , and chocolate 140.  total 310 still hungry, may have ice cream or something for dessert. i am not satisfied one bit (even though dinner should have been enough for sure.)

exercise: the park, for sure, 4 miles. very tired during walk.

i didn't get in any walking yesterday, partly the rain to blame but 90% blame on myself...for spending my day 100% in a lousy way.   :(   i should NEVER have cancelled beach plans...everyone was talking about how the waves were huge to watch, quite a sight after the storms.

i've said this 2 weekends in a row...i think i need more faith in myself and my ability to do more with my time, and realize i do NOT need so much time to "rest up" or "prepare" for the week ahead when it's still the weekend! the end!!!!

i am not attracted to the guy i went out with this weekend, but i am very optimistic about dating other guys in the near future....i just need to date MORE.

so yesterday sucked. this morning i took a short 15 min walk before breakfast. felt really good!

breakfast: 100 fruit.

snack: 100 fruit, drinks

lunch: 500. really healthy veggies/salad/egg. coffee. i was freezing (partially due to not eating much this morning)

snack: strawberries 120

total before dinner: 820...

i will MOST definitely be having oatmeal/egg mixture later. probably with chocolate in it too....

dinner change of plans: large tofu lite 200, celery 20 :) 220 total :)

total 1050 wahoo. approx.

exercise: so far, 35 min walking today....i will aim for 3-5 miles at the park, whatever i can handle today.

total calories: 1220.

average calories: 2233 over 25 days

Progress as of today: 8 lbs lost so far, only 2 lbs to go!
