(counting calories, exercise)
Weight: 191.0

Day started well & did OK until dinner which was buffet style at a nice restaurant. My choices were - smoked salmon, a few shrimp, salad with not too much dressing, some kind of bean dish, some chicken, alittle rice &  fruit- I think that was it- except for more than 2 glasses of wine...I did pass up the desserts though!


 So I still was probably about 1800 calories- more than I wanted but the wine snuck up on me with someone filling my glass... Right, like I couldn't say no!

Also no exercise besides a short walk. I was still tired from golf yesterday but should have pushed myself.

Tomorow  I need to be extra good for the day because another dinner out tomorrow for my husband's birthday.

Do extra workout tomorrow and you'll have dinners out whipped! My husband's birthday is Sunday.

moogy on 04/29/2011:
Well done with bypassing the desserts. It is very tempting when all that food is layed out before you just waiting to be eaten. I agree with holly you are going to need to get some exercise in especially as you have another celebration this weekend. It is just life getting in the way of a perfectly ordered way of losing weight!!!!!! LOL

Hey for a buffet you did fantastic!!!! You should be very happy with your choices!!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

I'm proud of myself that I've had a good week. There is something empowering about taking control of my eating and then I wonder why I haven't been doing this right along??? Now I'm being realistic about this as tomorrow is my husband's birthday & the next day is my birthday AND tonight we're going out to a dinner/dance. So I have to have a plan & will only splurge on the birthday dinner & not make it a blow out weekend which I might have done before. (Hope I can stick to this!)

Meals yesterday- breakfast- egg& 1/2 eng muff, lunch -greens with chicken& gelatin cup, dinner- Japanese bento take out with salmon. small glass of wine & snacks-  2 hand fulls of almonds.  Est. at 1400 calories

Exercise- Played golf & a swim in the pool. Look forward to playing golf when I have less weight to carry around the course!

(I've got this scale that only shows Kg which I have no problem calculating to lbs but the scale only shows whole kg- it looks like I've lost a kg but not posting until I get a proper scale!)

KathyBlue on 04/29/2011:
I saw you were from Singapore, do you consider dieting as an easy task there, do you have available healthy food concepts such as low fat, non-fat, whole grain, bio etc.? I'm just curious! :)

hollybelle on 04/29/2011:
YES - EMPOWERING! I love that thought. There is so much that happens in life that we are not in control of but our eating and activity level (at least in this part of the world) are not part of them. We are in charge and taking personal responsibility is part of the journey to health. YAY-you have identified the power that is available within you. Thanks for reminding me!

Day 2- Had a pretty good day. Breakfast was 2 scr. eggs, coffee & 1/2 oatmeal cookie, am snack- 1 biscotti, lunch tuna on lettuce , pm snack- almonds, dinner- chicken, peas & apple snack 2 rice cakes w/ butter & jam- estimate it at 1400 calories.

Went to the gym - 20 min on treadmill,, 15 on bike & some weights.

Maybe get on the scale tomorrow.

Figure if I can string a few days together like this, maybe there's hope!


Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 31 lbs to go!

Thank you to all for the welcome and encouraging words.

Day one- not the best start ,but a start. Salad for lunch, chicken, rice and green beans for dinner with 2 small snacks thrown in to equal about 1500 calories. I won't weigh myself for a few days. I'm living in southeast Asia so have a scale that reads in kg so for my own sake I need to buy a new scale that reads in pounds.

I know that I should eliminate my daily glass of wine, but maybe will cut it to 1/2 glass.

I walked about 50 minutes today & will add more exercise tomorrow.

Good to read other diaries to know that others are fighting the same battle.

moogy on 04/26/2011:
I am in Sydney Australia and using kg as well. Maybe we could convert the Americans???? There are a few of us that measure in metric. Welcome to DD's:)

Welcome to DDs! Sounds like you are off to a great start. As for the wine, 1/2 glass per day is ok. Following a healthier lifestyle is all about moderation and being active each day.

I got your email regarding the FB group and sent back a reply. Hope to hear from you soon! :-)

Just logged on to this site. I'm looking for a way to keep myself motivated and accountable. Hoping that this site will help. Haven't decided whether I will follow weight watchers plan or should I just try to eat a balanced diet , limit my carbs and keep calories at 1200-1500. Also need to chart my exercise.

So for this week I will record my food and exercise and hope to lose 1-2 lbs by next Monday. That's a plan & I will think positive!
