Well here I am...Saturday. On Thursday I weighed in and i stayed the same which i guess is good because I didn't gain. I'm still not entirely happy with it but hey its not a gain.

I ate ok yesterday. I ended up going to Hoss's last night and I got the chicken lite portion with a baked potato. I also made myself a huge salad with tons of veggies and dressing on the side at the salad bar. That lessened the blow of eating garlic bread, cinnamon bread, and ice cream. But what really makes me feel somewhat better is that I walked to and from school yesterday because my car was in the shop (long story).

I really need to go to the grocery store today because theres nothing low points that I can eat in this house except for my orange cream smoothies that I bought at the meeting thursday (I'm drinking on now...yummy!) Anyways I am going to make my shopping list and call work and confirm what time i need to be there today.

Birth Control

September 22nd, 2004 (08:14 am)

I'm starting to get really frustrated. It seems that since I have started BC I have done nothing but consistantly gained no matter what I do and I am seriously about to cry. I can't stand this all I want to do is get to my goal weight. No matter how much water i drink, how much i exercise and how much i count I can't seem to lose just gain in tiny increments up to a pound. wtf?

Too funny of a quote not to post.....

"Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out. But I can usually
shut the b**ch up with cookies"

Rainy Night

September 18th, 2004 (10:22 am)

Ok last night i was bad. Because of the rain and him briefly not having power we were forced to eat out last night. However, it was so bad that everywhere we went was packed, except one place...The Emporer. Can you say....."OH FUCK!" ?

Yeah I can. Nothing like fried everything covered in fatting sauces and tons of starch. I ate a few fried noodles, a bowl of wonton soup, lo mein, rice and an egg roll. Thankfully I did not eat all of my lo mien and rice, but still i ate all that. Luckily though, Chad had to take all his food to his parents since his power was off so when it finally came back on there was nothing for me snack on.

So here is my game plan.....

No more flex points for the rest of the week. I am going to have to live on my 26 alotted points for the next 5 days even if it kills me. I am not going to gain this week. Tonight when we ribs and couscous I am only eating one rib and one cup of cous cous the rest of my plate is going to be crammed with veggies.

Anyways im going to run to the farmers market and to the grocery store as I am out of food.

Its Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiday!

here I am eating a Lean cuisine pizza. I seriously do not know what I would do with out those things. On days like today when i need to go to the grocery store they feed me. 4 minutes in the microwave and BAM! I have an almost instant lunch!

My breakfast was pretty good too. For 4 points i had the most filling smoothie ever. To get my serving of fruit i added some pineapple tidbits to the mixture and it was pretty good. The only thing is that i think i put too much milk in. I think i should have put only one cup in but instead of that I put two in along with some ice. Either way it was still pretty good.

Now all i have to do is get past dinner tonight and resist the temptation of eating too many fudge pops. And after that i need to get past dinner tomorrow night. We're supposed to be having jamaican pork which actually are jamaican country ribs and couscous. wish me luck!

Gatoradddde! H20! Gatoradddddde H-2-O!!!!

I need to cut back on my water consumption so early in the day. I usually drink two at breakfast and one at lunch (huge glasses) and by the time Communication workshop rolls around at 3pm my bladder is totally bursting and I don't get from the studio theatre to old main in enough time even though im a lazy ass and drive there. Today I almost didnt make it to the bathroom because it took me forever to get a damned parking spot. Arggh!

Anyways went to WI, gained two pounds this week, but that is going to change.

Oh yeah, Also had aerobics today. We did step aerobics, not as hard as the floor aerobics she had us doing in the past, but still hard for me considering im VERY uncoordinated and the assholes working out on the machines were laughing at all of us. My heart rate has been pretty good. Even though I have been complete beat i have been pulling a heart rate of 70% which isnt too shabby our teacher wants us to be between 65 and 75%

Tomorrow I plan on going to the fitness center at school tomorrow after my classes and I am going to work out for about an hour.

I think I need to give myself stars for everytime i exercise and when i actually lose. After I have so many stars I should reward myself with non-food prizes. anyways im going to catch the rest of Rachel Ray

Ok so I am making my lunch right now. It consists of 6 Mrs. T's Pierogies sprayed with butter flavored pan and baked in the oven. I plan on making some steamed veggies to eat with them bringing the total for lunch to 6 points added to my three points for a nutrigrain bar before class and two apples. I"m working on huge glass of water number two and I even took my vitamin yay!


Bar- 3pts
two small apples-2pts

sub total: 11pts
Points for the day: 26
points left: 15pts


So I'm going to try something new and I hope that this inspires you all. While I am not a really religious person I want to put this bible excerpt in here dealing with moderation. Keep in mind though, this is from the book of Sirach which isn't in the protestant bible. I love the book of Sirach because he gives you a basic etiquette lesson. So here we go: Sirach 11:20-

My son, hold fast to your duty, busy
yourself with it,
grow old while doing your task.
Admire not how sinners live
but trust in the LORD and wait for his light
For easy with the LORD
suddenly in an instant to make a poor man rich.
God's blessing is the lot of the just man
and in due time his hopes bear fruit
Say not: What do I need?
what further pleasure can be mine?
Say Not: I am Independent
What harm can come to me now?
The day of proseperity makes one forget adversity

Honestly, that really puts stuff into perspective for me. I shouldn't envy the fact that people can eat whatever they want and i have to count everything that goes into my mouth. If i count now I dont have to worry about getting heart disease later in life or any other awful disease for that matter. yeah it was easy to lose that first bit of weight, but I can't let that make me think this whole journey is going to be an easy one. I can't say that I dont need to track my points because obviously that has been disasterous for me thus far, I am not independent I need help and I need to keep that in perspective.

Until Next time....

The Maiden Voyage. . .

September 15th, 2004 (02:11 pm)

Ok here it goes...the first entry into the weightloss journal. I tried this a few months ago and the idea fell through miserably. Today i got the idea from weightwatchers.com.

It doesnt take a genius to look around and see that I am struggling. Ever since i started Ortho Tri i havent really lost any weight. Going on vacation didn't help matters much either but enough with trying to justify why I have fallen off the weightloss wagon so to speak. Its MY fault that I have been faltering so bad and only I can pick myself up and start over again harder than ever before and thats what I am going to do.

I have come up with a plan on how to go about this challenge. My first step is to identify what makes me cave to temptation:

1) Cookies
2) Ice Cream
3) Popcicles
4) crackers
5) chocolate
6) cake
7) donuts
8) pasta
9) garlic bread/bread dipped in EVOO
10) Rice

My second step is to avoid and/or limit my intake on these things. Things like cookies ice cream donuts and stuff like that are hard to avoid in my house and chads because the guys like them. I just have to avoid them at all costs. The pasta rices and breads need to be limited. I will allow myself to have some but i have to know when to walk away from them. I will also substitute more of the junk with healhier alternatives.

My third step is to to pay careful attention to my portion sizes. I plan to religiously measure my portions and stick with only one serving no matter what. If i am that hungry i can eat extra vegatables

My fourth step is to utilize this journal. when i am discouraged im going to write, when I'm happy im going to write, when i bite something, im gonna write it, thats just how it goes.

I owe this all to myself. Im pushing 22 and i have spent too much of my life being overweight, unattractive and unhappy. Hopefully by Graduation I will be atleast a size 12 and hopefully by the time i hope to get married (2006) I will be at my goal weight.

Goodbye for Now
