Weight: 109.4

Saturday, day 12...haha, the scale says 108, but I don't feel much thinner at all! I read a few other entries of DDers that say that don't feel "fatter," and I feel the exact opposite (not much thinner). I still think some of this weight is major water weight.

I ate dinner around 4:55 last night and then went to rehearsal and didn't eat again until breakfast this morning. Usually, I'm eating plenty more in the evenings. so, I'm sure that is what is moving the scale also.

However, this is quite interesting and I'm going to speak to Judy today...the woman from the health food store...and go over my food intake and week with her to plan for the weeks to come!

I did yoga this morning because I ended up getting earlier than I thought I would! I got up a little before 7am. When I'm stressed or have had a lot to do, I will always wake up early on Saturday! I drove my sister to the train and walked to yoga from there (yoga's like 2 minutes away from the train!)

I hadn't exercised since Tuesday and yoga was VERY challenging today. Good thing was, I felt really great after I left the class! Also, I had almost no craving feeling after class like I usually do. I came home thinking I would have an early lunch, but then stuck to the snack I have been having at school: baby carrots and about 3 tablespoons of peanut butter. I even felt satisfied. That is a major change for me.

I will update tonight again!


Friday, day 13!

Today was a good day at school, I got a lot done and taught a lot of students! I made some phone calls, both good and ones for students who need improvement. The concert's coming up and things are running pretty smoothly and I'm much happier now than I was at this time last year, teaching middle school and a super-wealthy area. Trust me, it was a HORRIBLE experience! probably more the parents/administration than the kids.

I haven't exercised since Tuesday. I didn't exercise today either. It really stinks, but I really don't have the time/don't want to use that time for exercising. I pretty much have come home from work, layed down in my bed for 10 minutes, had dinner, and then gone to rehearsal these past 3 nights.

I am not sure when things will get better. I would love to do yoga tomorrow but I will take too much out of me and I have a concert in the evening. I will do Yoga sunday evening though I have to teach a lesson and go to a rehearsal. those are a lot of things to do. I also have work to get done and i'll be teaching tomorrow a one hour lesson as well.

Monday I'm being observed, Tueday I have a rehearsal in the evening. Wednesday and Thursday are probably when I will get a break; and Friday I have a concert/party. I also have a concert next Saturday! LOL

This entry is another one of those lists. I just helped myself understand this wierd schedule!

Thank you for your comments and I have begun reading your entries!


Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 1.4 lbs to go!

geevee on 12/02/2006:
Anyone who teaches middle school is a saint in my book! You sure do get observed a lot! That would drive me nuts.

With so much to do, you must really be burning up those clories. Take care, Angelina! LOL

borntocry on 12/02/2006:
No way! Your goal weight?! You're the Incredible Shrinking Girl!

Moody on 12/02/2006:
Well how exciting to see the scale moving in the direction you want!!

Whatever you are doing it seems to be working!! Yay!!

Wow...looks like you've been very, very busy!

Hope you have a wonderful evening after all that work! Big Smile!

Friday day 13

eesh, my lips are sooo swollen from playing in rehearsal last night! They look like angelina jolie lips!


day 14, 110. TIRED today! lack of sleep is starting to catch up!

I did real well on being observed by the asst. superintendent! what fun it was!


Progress as of today: 3.4 lbs lost so far, only 2 lbs to go!

Moody on 11/30/2006:
So glad to hear that your observation went well!!! Woohoo!!!! Hope you sleep well tonight~!

geevee on 12/01/2006:
Good going on the observations! Oh, how I HATED them! Sometimes they turned out very well and were actually fun, but the stress of thinking about them BEFORE is the real killer!

That's SO funny about your Angelina Jolie lips!

LOL people would pay big money for those lips! You should market the idea!!! Have a GREAT evening! **HUGS**

Weight: 109.4

day 14, Thursday. 110 pounds, I knew yesterday was a bit of a fluke! also, I weighed myself this morning after not eating since 5pm yesterday! I do not feel thinner though (from 112 pounds) and maybe that's because it is water loss?


Day 15, Wednesday.

It is 11:30 and I practically just got out of the shower. I had a band rehearsal at the college tonight and it was a recording session. the conductor is very picky and quite the perfectionist and we ended up getting out 15 minutes later than we should have, making that 10:30pm. hmmm, I am being observed bright and early tomorrow morning!

I HATE NOT GETTING SLEEP and this is beginning to seriously DISTURB ME! Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will be like this for the week. Saturday evening I have a concert and Sunday afternoon I have a different rehearsal. then, I also have a different rehearsal for something entirely seperate on Tuesday! what! I;m busy. But, I don't like the so busy that you don't sleep or exercise! that is NOT my STYLE!

That was good venting.

I had a really wholesome diner tonight: large salad, big chilli and onion pieces in tofu (has some nice protein and fat in these things), a piece of avacado, like half a grilled eggplant, and a whole sweet potato. If I didn't eat the sweet potato, I swear I would not have lasted through the 4 1/2 hour rehearsal tonight. I even brought half another sweet potato with me, but decided not to have it after.

I will definitely find the time to meet with JUDY, the person who kinda got me enthusiastic about this diet plan, sometime saturday. she works at the health food store.

the peanut butter is not very expensive, if I believe it costs $7, Runner. well, i guess that means double the price of some peanut butters.

GOODNIGHT, I really enjoy your comments and it looks like everyone is just very busy at this time of year!

Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 1.4 lbs to go!

borntocry on 11/30/2006:
Well, you are losing weight on this new plan, at least! I'm so jealous, hehe. Way to go!

Moody on 11/30/2006:
As usual you are on the go go go!!! I hope you find SOME time to do what you want to do. And yes, sleep is so important. There is more and more research being done that shows getting enough sleep is important for weight loss!

weightlossyoyo on 11/30/2006:
You are doing great! Seems to be working for you.

Weight: 111.0

day 15.... wednesday, weight down, 109.4! I know i was very dehydrated by the morning though...we'll see how the rest of the week goes..

day 16, Tuesday. weight down,111.

today was busy and i'm so glad that i stayed at school late today until about 4pm to finish work (school ends at 2:30, so i did stay pretty late!). When I got home it was 4:25 and I left to do weight training and take a light stroll/walk on the treadmill. I stopped off at the supermarket after and got home a little after six. I ate dinner, changed, and went to rehearsal from 7:30 till 10:15. Uhhhh, too many late nights ahead. I will have a late night everyday now including Friday night.

The food thing is going well...but, I'm nervous about getting by on a lack of sleep and an observation on Thursday morning....

Today, while doing weights, I felt beat! I don't know if it is a lack of carbs, my brain, or what. however, i never ate tremendous amounts of carbs unless I was binging. so? what's to blame for my lack of enery? I'm certainly not sure. Usually, I'm not famished when I exercise...maybe I needed some sort of pick-up.

alright, i guess I should be getting some sleep. I HATE NOT SLEEPING ENOUGH! It really gets me all messed up the next few days. and, i have no days to make up sleep. I'm probably gonna have to take naps after school instead of exercise! That's if i want to get through these night rehearsals! I'm not usually a napper, but I tried it a couple weeks ago because i was exhausted and it worked.

blah, goodnight!

Scruff was here :) and loves his sleep

borntocry on 11/29/2006:
Maybe you didn't eat enough the night before? Could also be the sleep deprivation. Sometimes that can translate to a lack of energy, even if you're not feeling sleepy at the time.

Thanks for your comment. I was really tempted to cancel running when I realised I had left my timer at home! I tend to look at these things as "signs" (which inevitably point to the laziest course of action). I have also been wondering whether I should ease up on running as I miss the casual jogs I used to have before, but I am afraid that if I let myself do that, I will just get used to running really slowly all the time.

Runner on 11/29/2006:
I think lack of carbs always causes a tired feeling. Can you eat any "good" carbs? Like whole grains? I don't know how you can go so long without them...my brain seems to shut down when I go too long without carbs! But look---your weight is going down! Yay for that!

Thanks for the info. on the peanut butter! Is it really expensive? Maybe I'll pick some up at GNC when I go back to the U.S. for a visit in March. It sounds great!

WorkingIt on 11/29/2006:
That will give you an energy boost! YAY!

Weight: 111.8

day 16...weight down to 111....

day 17, Monday.

I was pretty hungry during the morning and ended up having a pretty large amount of peanut butter, which helped till later. I definitely had a good share of peanut butter and hummus. For dinner, I stuff myself with two whole bagged romaine salads and a frozen chopped broccoli and a large red pepper and some chicken, all with a little olive oil. I was going to have avacado, but decided against it based on how the whole day went.

Hummus comes in all flavors and varieties. In the supermarkets by me, there are also like a bazillion brands that make hummus and products like that. Actually, I didn't even have hummus today, it was called babaganoush, or something like that, it's in school in the refrigerator so i can't check. Grilled eggplant with some sort of mayonaise.

I estimated my calories to be like 1780 or so. I don't calculate as I go through the day anymore, now I just look because I'm curious at the end of the day.

I'm unsure about all these pills as well. I'm just gonna see how the week goes, and decide if I want to return them. The store accepts anything to be returned! that's the coolest part, i'd say. but we'll see. and yes, the vitamins are like a kick in the rear end to keep going with this diet! I'm not sure I could do it without any support, that woman is there EVERYDAY, I do think of her as support as well because I see she is in good health and does it this way.

goodnight all.

Progress as of today: 1.6 lbs lost so far, only 3.8 lbs to go!

Scruff was here :)

Runner on 11/28/2006:
Maybe if I had a diet where I could consume peanut butter liberally, I would stick to it! Hmmm...what kind of peanut butter are you eating? The all-natural kind?

Weight: 111.4

Day 17 - Weight was up today, 111.8 hmmm. it's still low I guess...


Day 18 - Sunday. Same weight.

the balsamic vinegar question: I only have the dark as well. I find the white vinegar not as potent or enjoyable!

I'm doing okay. At times, I wonder if this diet is good because it teaches me how to stop eating when I'm done with a meal or snack. In the past, there was no cue signalling me to just stop even though my cue for being full already happened. If my head wasn't satisfied, I could easily binge.

Now, this is only the 2nd day, but I see that there is a possiblity in me continuing this diet for a long time. Once again, I had a lot of vegetables and healthy foods. I'm not listing all the vegetables. Olive oil at every meal. Avacado with breakfast.

I am nervous about how much is too much of all of that. I also had peanut butter on an apple (a nice, satisfying amount that equalled probably about 2 tablespoons), and hummus on celery...and later, hummus on carrots! so, we'll see how this week turns out!

I think I am a little less bloated. However, the hummus has salt in it, which isn't cool! But, I'm not going to be that much of a stikler! I also had an egg, chicken, and a small piece of halibut today.

Yeah, i agree, hummus (like peanut butter and all of those rich treats), can be VERY addicting. I try to have all the veggies first and really end with a nice clump of it so I feel satisfied. It's hard, I am very used to a bit more protein in my previous diet!

alright everyone, have a lovely evening!

oh, the vitamins: one is a plant-based multivitamin that is all natural. I take two in the morning and two at night.

the second is called Acidazyne which is an enzyme that works with the pancreas and works just like they do to break down food. I take 2 in the middle of a meal. Supposedly, it breaks foods down like 10 times faster and better, who knows if it really does anything! I hope it is helping me positively...we'll see.

the last is called Megazyme, another enzyme. The enzyme works also help the body better control blood sugars and she told me to take 3 when I wake up, 3 after meals, and 3 at bedtime! hmmmmm, this could be all hogwash...but, I'll give it a try. I've already poisoned my body with sugar alcohols and protein bars! LOL

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 3.4 lbs to go!

Runner on 11/27/2006:
Wow, your diet sounds ideal---and I've tried something similar, but I didn't last too long. I admire you for being so disciplined. I've also tried digestive enzymes, but I don't think they've ever helped me. I'll be interested in your opinion.

borntocry on 11/27/2006:
You can make your own hummus without salt, but it won't taste as good... although you could probably use other spices like cumin or pepper to replace the salt.

Thanks for the comment you left me, it cheered me up a little! I really needed it too because if I thought Saturday was bad... I had no idea what was coming.

Moody on 11/27/2006:
You made a comment that really hit home with me.."If my head wasn't satisfied, I could easily binge."...Wow, very insightful.

I've only tried hummus once and didn't like it at all! I don't know if it was the brand or what..does it come in different flavors??

geevee on 11/27/2006:
I never buy ready-made hummus. I make it with a can of chick peas, 1Tbsp. tahini, garlic (already cut up and scoop it out by the spoonsful), half a lime or lemon, minced onion.

WorkingIt on 11/27/2006:
I am often amazed that we take the advice of someone who works at a retail outlet as to what we should be putting into our bodies, vs. going to the doctor and getting the bloodwork and really finding out if we are lacking in a vitamin, mineral or enzyme. I think it might be that we are looking for a reason other than the dreaded plateau, or we are afraid of regaining the weight back so much that we fixiate on ounces or three or four pounds. If the health food person says "this will work" who wants to go to the doctor and hear "you are perfectly healthy, don't waste your money on those things." And yet sometimes these expensive 'remedies' provide us with something that we forgot how to provide ourselves along the way, confidence and mental power. It allows us to trigger our mind into believing that we are fixing something, even though 'something' might not be broken. These things also help us feel as if we are actually doing something, because somehow we figure we aren't.

I am all for trying things as long as they don't destroy our inner organs, are safe, and keep us healthy. Sometimes the mental part needs a push in order for us to remember and/or realize that we are doing everything the right way.

Good luck!!!

Weight: 111.4

Sunday, day 18, 111.4 still... after a big dinner (too much salmon!)!!!

Breakfast was really good today, cooked brussel sprouts with olive oil, some spinach with olive oil as well, avacado, and an egg.

for a snack about 2 1/2 hours later, an apple and peanut butter.


Saturday, day 19.

so, today was my first day of my primarily plant based diet. I had a huge(not bug, like I previously wrote by accident!!!!) assortment of things actually, two eggs and lots of veggies with olive oil for breakfast, a snack of some kinda old hummus on celery, some more celery, peanut butter on an apple, tofu and a lot of veggies with olive oil, a veggie drink, wheat grass, and a dinner which consisted of a kinda too big piece of salmon, two packages of portabella mushrooms, romaine, and brussel sprouts. no, I'm not kidding! I am capable of packing in the food.

I should've only had one egg for breakfast as well as half the salmon at dinner, as that's a protein serving size. Now, I'm not calculating calories, but I was interested in what they might add up to, so I checked it out as I was finishing my dinner. I would say today's calories would probably be around 1800. If I had half the salmon and one less egg, calories would be around 1600. whatever, who knows!

It was difficult today. I kept thinking that something wasn't right. It was hard to eat just vegetables, olive oil, and protein. I also had a little balsamic vinegar in my salad at dinner. However, most people who follow a diet like mine wouldn't use it because it has added sugar. It is so hard for me to buy all organic food, they are so expensive!

I am trying to see what I am capable of doing with the kind of diet. If I can't keep it up, I won't be able to do it. We shall see. So far, I kinda like it. I was definitely really hungry at certain times today, as usual! we'll see.

tomorrow I'll discuss the 3 different vitamins/enzymes that she suggested I take... goodnight and thank you for your support!

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 3.4 lbs to go!

mattscat3295 on 11/26/2006:
This new diet sounds kind of interesting. I just don't think that I would just start something like this without checking it out with my dr. I hope it does what is intended for you. Take care

geevee on 11/26/2006:
Be warned about the addictiveness of hummus. I love the stuff and eat it like I do potato chips. Once I start, it's real hard to stop. You can't beat its nutritional value but caloriewise, it's a killer.

Moody on 11/26/2006:
Your food plan sounds very interesting! I don't think I could do it as I am not a big fan of alot of veggies. I LOVE portabella mushrooms tho and could probably live off of them!!

I love balsalmic vinegar too and the brand I get (Regina) only has 1gr of sugar per serving compared to some others I looked at that had 2 or 3 and even more!! I use the dark kind, never tried the light. Does it taste different or do you know?

Anyway, sounds like you are getting alot of nutritous foods in!! Just listen to your body and see how you respond! Good luck!

Weight: 111.8

Saturday, day 19, 111.4! That's right! Somehow, my weight is still down! I really didn't expect that this morning, still so close to my Thanksgiving splurge! So far, so good...


Friday, day 20, 111.8

Hello everyone! Because I feel that my current eating and nutrition is not the greatest by any means, I am starting over! Yes, I think it is time. No more calorie counting to the extreme that I was. More importantly, no more refined grains or grains in general.

yes, I went to a health store today, one of the best in the area. I spoke to someone there who I always recognize is there whenever I stop in. I had a long talk with her, perhaps 45 minutes! She showed me a few vitamins and introduced me to a really good vegetable drink made fresh for me from cucumber, sunflower seed sprouts, a little ginger, romaine, and a few other things. It tasted similiar to wheat grass juice, but a bit smoother and less potent. It was good!

The vitamins she showed me support the pancreas and the intestine and also support blood sugar levels. She actually mentioned it before I could ask! I've been concerned about my blood sugar levels for awhile!

Now, I will be having a salad 3 times a day and healthy snacks which include veggies and hummus and things like that. I used to not use oil on my salads, but now I will be. I am a little concerned about the foods I will be eating because I want to have more energy, and not less! I told her this and she said that I would be perfectly fine. So, I'm trying it.

My mom is pissed at me because she says it's another diet phase. However, I feel like I've always been in the same diet phase, calorie counting, occasionally switching off between different types of foods. The same can be done with a "salad diet." There are all kinds of vegetables and proteins. I guess this diet would be similiar to GG's ABCDEF diet.

I hope it does make me feel good. I took the vitamins as she directed 2 during the meal as well as 3 after, different types. My stomach actually started to feel strangely less bloated all of a sudden that I said something to my mom about it. I was like, wow, my stomach feels so different! haha. Maybe all of it is in my head! But, I do feel there was a definite calming effect on my body after eating.

Goodnight everyone.

Progress as of today: 1.6 lbs lost so far, only 3.8 lbs to go!

Runner on 11/25/2006:
Wow---I would do anything to find some vitamins to help my bloating! Can you give me more information??

borntocry on 11/25/2006:
I think this is a good idea. You really don't need to lose that much weight and by dieting you risk getting caught in a starve-binge cycle which could lead you to actually gain weight. Believe me, I know what I'm talking about because this is what I feel has happened to me! At the moment you are able to recover quite quickly from a binge (as I was) but when you get older your metabolism will slow down. Rather than invest all your energy into losing one or two pounds now, you might be better off working to make sure you can maintain your weight on a long-term basis. You may even lose those one or two pounds in the process. Good luck!

Moody on 11/25/2006:
Hmmm..sounds interesting!!! Let us know how you are feeling with this new plan!! And yay that the numbers are down for you!

WorkingIt on 11/25/2006:
Congrats on maintaining your weight =)

I am going to be at my docs office in a month actually to get another blood panel workup and look at different types of vitamins/minerals. He cautioned me against going out and doing it on my own because of the different things that can happen with prescription medication, vitamins and herbs get combined. Of course I already knew that which is why I told him I wanted him to supervise..doctors..sheesh LOL

Good luck!

Weight: 111.0

it's been a bit of a challenge today: 1261 so far. I am doing better now and I think the day will end just below 1700 calories today.

Day 20, Friday... Weight was 111.8 this morning. However, I know it is going to continue to go up in the mornings to come!

...and I've already had 751 calories today, and a little too much sugar. It's not exactly going to be easy these next few days!


Day 21, Thursday. Total calories: 3400 calories today. (hopefully not more!!!!)

Yes, my weight was down, THIS MORNING! I ate normally this morning and afternoon. I had a 200 calorie breakfast. I went to do some yoga and had a 70 calorie drink there. Then, I came home and had a 290 calorie lunch and a cottage cheese about 30 minutes before our late afternoon Thanksgiving dinner.

For dinner, I stuck to a ton of white meat turkey, sauteed green beans and shallots, and cauliflower. I would say I had large portions and that this dinner equals 650 calories. oops, i forgot the salad, make that 700 calories.

I completely overindulged for dessert. I had HALF OF THE ENTIRE PUMPKIN PIE (I ESTIMATE THIS TO BE 1280 CALORIES), 1 CORNBREAD FROM DINNER (200 calories), AND A LARGE PIECE OF APPLE FRUIT CRISP (450 CALORIES?). THAT MIGHT BE TOO LOW FOR THE APPLE CRISP, BUT I'LL LEAVE IT. oh, I also had a ton of grapes: 150 calories.

well, it'll take a while to balance out that! I would like to be 111 again in 7 days. 7 days is a long time and hopefully I will meet my goal sooner by taking in a few less calories this weekend! ARG! That's how long it may take to even out this one day.

As soon as people got up from the table, I couldn't help but devour the pumpkin pie. I was the only one who had any pumpkin pie at all! I wasn't going to have any cornbread or apple crisp, but I couldn't help myself. However, I do not regret it. I enjoyed it and now I will have to watch myself, carefully.

gosh, my plan was to loose about 5 pounds before going away for Christmas. However, all I've been doing is maintaining, and even that has been a challenge. I need to get into a mindset where I actually do make a change in my appearance.

I am going to try to do yoga more often. When my membership to the gym runs out, I'm going to take time off and just go to yoga. In the new year, I will re-join the gym. I have 2 weeks left of the gym. I will continue to walk on my treadmill at home.

goodnight all. I hope you do not regret your Thanksgiving dinners as well!

Progress as of today: 2.4 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

greengirl on 11/24/2006:
All your Thanksgiving lunches sound wonderful. just reading about them is making my mouth water :)

maria777 on 11/24/2006:
Hey, I overate on Thanksgiving as well but it was good! I LOVE pumpkin pie, just as you do! I had some also and though I didn't have 1/2 of the pie, I had other deserts, too! YUM!!!

Maybe we should just concentrate on maintaining through the holidays!

Weight: 112.6

day 21, Thanksgiving Thursday, my weight this morning was back down. hopefully, it will stay that way (maybe not tomorrow morning though!!!). 111 lbs.


Day 22, Wednesday. Ending the day with 1595 calories.

I was planning for about 1500 all day. However, I took a half hour walk on the treadmill from 8-8:30pm and was very hungry after. I was shaky and the 150 calorie forzen boca chilli didn't do it for me at all. So, I supplemented with the healthiest things available: 1 tomato, 1 pepper, and 7 baby carrots.

Luckily, I took a long time to eat the spicy chilli and the veggies that I had mostly at the end really put an end to most of the shakes. I hate when I get too hungry, which happens all the time with me even though I do eat small meals throughout the day, and I get the shaky feeling. I have never been told I have diabetes. So, who knows!

I have read on here that other people sometimes feel this way too. I think it was BTC, or maybe Runner, who said once that she was shaking she was so hungry.

I am excited now for different food tomorrow. I don't want to be in diet mode all day, though. So, I will just eat a lot of protein all day so that I am not excessively hungry for dinner, hopefully.

My weight is not where I want it. Hopefully it'll go down soon!

These past seven days were pretty good, with an average of 1593 calories per day.

Progress as of today: 0.8 lbs lost so far, only 4.6 lbs to go!

Hi Horn_Of_Plenty,

I don't remember ever saying that I was shaking from hunger, but I easily could have as it does happen to me every now and then. Especially after working out on an empty stomach. I know many people do it but most of them seem to do it first thing in the morning. When you exercise in the evening, like I do, you can get really drained of energy if you don't have enough food in your system. In fact that happened to me just yesterday!

Thanks for the comment you left me. Yes, I have been feeling so sorry for myself because of the dual work/home insect infestations! I don't understand it - are they hitching rides on my clothes or something?! What a horrible thought - I'm just not going to dwell on that! I actually had insect-related nightmares all last night. Thanks for your sympathy!

thanks! I'm really going to try. Oh that I were your size :)

That shaking sounds like hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, which you can get if you are not eating enough, especially not enough carbs.
