Pre-breakfast: slice of homemade bread
Breakfast: honeycomb & a banana
Lunch: impossibly easy spinach-parmesan pie
Snacks: luna bar, rice cake, gumdrops, carrot-ginger bread, hot rice w/ vanilla rice milk, banana bread
Dinner: turkey meatloaf, herbed baked potatoes
Drinks: 4 cups teeccino w/ stevia & rice milk, 3 glasses water = 70oz so far

Food & drinks total: 1808 without any more snacks
Fruits & veggies: banana, spinach, potatoes x 2 = 4

Activity:
nothin'! yay for lousy weather! I couldn't even get out and shovel because after the snow stopped, it started sleeting. ptthhhhbt.

The awful part is that I still feel like I've hardly eaten today. I know I need to stop with the gumdrops and luna bars, because they're a lot of calories without a lot of substance. I find that I HAVE to eat something bready every 1 1/2 to 2 hours or I start feeling lousy. Maybe 1600 is unreasonable for me and I'm destined to become overweight again.

Ok, so... e_mcmaster was right, I ate some protein and now I'm quite full. I also didn't eat nearly as much potato with dinner as I thought I would. So even with another piece of carrot bread, I'm right about at 1800, and I have no reason to whine.

If you don't mind me asking, what made you choose 1600 as your calories per day? If you don't mind, how tall are you, how much do you weigh, what is your activity level and are you trying to lose or maintain?

(If this is too personal, ignore it, but I thought I might be able to help...)

Have you thought about trying to include more protein in your diet? These last few days, after a regrettable experience with a piece of key lime pie on Friday night, I've been eating nothing but safe foods, which means virtually no protein. As a result, I've been ravenous and have eaten more cals than I really should. I think my normal levels of protein keep me full.

had 2 bowls cornflakes, 2 bananas, luna bar, 2 pieces (small) leftover pizza, few pretzels and bought 25c worth of skittles from a candy machine! Also had coconut shrimp rice and broccoli for dinner with too many pistachios (was out of peanuts- d--- those pistachios are yummy!) Got kind of loogy after workout this morning. Was hungry and then felt dizzy. Then I got a little gassy and now I am a little bloated. Am going to have tea now. Also rehab workout went pretty good. Only biked 20 minutes because a smoker started biking next to me and it made my lungs hurt. Just saying. Sorry but it is true. No offense.

Ok, I need to lose about seven pounds. I kept putting it off, but I'm going to give it a go for real now. Yell at me if I disappear.

So far today:

frozen lunch: 6
snack pack o' cheese nips: 2
virgin bloody mary: 0
"chicken" fajita- 7
total: 15


I will edit to add dinner in. Yesterday I had about 13
points and for some reason was REALLY not hungry at dinner. I think I was too exhausted to be hungry.

Nah... it's not too personal. I had someone on here, LauraSue, calculate my BMR for me, and it came out to roughly 1600. I'm not especially diligent about sticking to it, but I try not to go more than 200 calories over, *net*, on any given day. (If I exercise, I DO eat more.)

I am 30, 5'2" and 125lbs, and NOT looking to lose weight. The thing is that I'm basically sedentary, because ANY exercise, even nice gentle yoga, triggers a D attack. Because I don't reliably *do* anything on any given day (I'm housebound and unemployed), the calories are on the low side. Like I said, I do compensate and eat more on days that I do get up and move, even if it's just housework.

Hope that helps explain myself a little, heh.

You're right about the protein. Looking over what I've eaten the past few days, it's been mostly safe foods, because of a bad attack 2 days ago. Tonight will be the first night I've had any meat since Saturday, and I bet I will feel quite a bit better. Thanks for the reminder!

Heck, why not keep getting personal? Heh.

The reason I'm paranoid about becoming overweight is because I've been clinically obese most of my life. I spent a good chunk of my 20's at 180lbs or more, and several years as high as 260lbs. Last year, a bad bout of IBS left me at about 105; I've gained back up to a healthy 125, and I want to stay there. But with my history of overeating and obesity, and the fact that I still can't seem to reliably exercise... well, you can probably see why I'm concerned.

Now that you know my life story... heh.

Well I did eat that luna bar- good thing because we didn't get to dinner right away.. DD's fiance's car got stuck in the driveway!

then I had a chicken on the barbie with plain baked potato at the outback steakhouse and ate it all.. but we were there for almost 3 hours!

I need to take my sfs- not sure in what, it might just be tea.

OK... here is my reporting in......
My BMR = 2408 + I burned 1015 calories 60 minute Power Sculpt Class & 20 minutes on Elliptical - 1246 less calories to get to my goal = 2177 calorie food budget .

POWER SCULPT Class designed to utilize Group X equipment for resistance training. Band, weights and tubing will be used to sculpt and define.

Breakfast: 170 calories Toasted Nuts N' Cranberry (1/2 older & 1/2 new kind....I just did a visual and taste test on the old vs new.... the older one looks dryer and the texture is not as light feeling (NOT like a RKT anymore)...and not as sweet...but that is not a bad thing either.... I like them both. Would prefer the old but will still eat this one for sure)& Water

Lunch : 297 calories Subway Sandwich (6" White bread w/Tuna, Easy Lettuce, & Pickle) & Water

Snacks during the day: 320 calories 5 Gummy Heart, 1/2 oz pretzles, 1oz Rice Sembei Snacks - Tamari (soy sauce) (YUMMERS!! I got them at PCC) & Water

Before Working Out: 190 calories Amazake Rice Shake - Chocolate Chimp

Dinner: 297 calories 1 Plain Pita , 1/2 portion Turkey Kelbasa and Rice & Water

Fiber Pills: 2.25 calories total

Without any more snacks at all....(subject to change) = 1276.25 calories

Total Water intake = 130oz SO FAR

I WILL have UFO w/more water. That added 250 calories for a total of 1526.25. Still in my food budget!!

Hello!
Exercise: None!

So my food budget for today is: 1225 calories.

Breakfast: LemonZest Luna Bar = 180 calories

Lunch: Two slices fresh french bread with ICBINB, 30 g baked lays, 2 arrowroot cookies = 476 calories

Dinner: Apricot glazed turkey breast with sweet potato (slow cooker recipe, my Dad made it for dinner.. I should post the recipe, it's really good) = 257 calories (I only ate a very small bit, and it said one whole serving is 357 so I am sorta guessing).

4 UFO, some jellybeans = 450 calories

For a total of... 1363 calories! 136 calories too many.

I forgot to report in yesterday, I didn't count calories but this is what I ate basically.. 2 slices white toast w/peanut butter, chicken fajita deli meat sandwich, sushi (rolls) for dinner (I had kappa rolls, avocado rolls, and a chicken teriaky roll) - it was SO GOOD.

Must get back on track tomorrow - must get over personal crises long enough to do some actual exercise and pay better attention to calories and stuff!

Cheers!

I'm sure now you have got into a pattern of eating healthy safe food you will be fine - its not like we can go out and have a huige greasy burger anyway is it!

Maybe I should listen to myself as I am paranoid about putting too much weight back on. This was not helped by my stupid family who said I looked so much better when I had lost a stone. This was when I was really ill and looked too thin and gaunt. They then kept saying "now you are better don't put any weight back on, it doesn't suit you".

Great, does that mean I should eat nothing but rice and fish, what a miserable life!

Anyway, I have decided to ignore them and have put that stone back on and have thouroughly enjoyed doing it! I have started doing yoga and pilates, which has meant I am more toned.

Rant over ... grrr families!!

Eating wise I was fairly good today. Crumpet for breakfast, salad with ryebread and egg for lunch and fresh pasta with tuna and olives for tea.

A few snacks, mainly sweets (my downfall - and they always make me feel ill) and a reduced fat UFO.

Went to Yoga class, which was a really intense session - so I should have burned a few calories there.

I haven't lost any more weight this week, but I am a lot more toned from the Yoga and Pilates.

Well, Tuesday was a better day by far than Monday - no cake mishaps Didn't feel as stuffed and bloated either.

Breakfast - half white grapefruit, vanilla soy milk w/fiber
Snack - 16 oz coffee w/cream and sugar and the rest of my turkey sanwich from Monday's lunch.
Lunch - Grilled chicken breast with white rice and mango salsa
Snack - apple
Dinner - egg white omlet w/red pepper, spinach and mozz. topped w/salsa. 2 slices sourdough with raspberry jam. A few tortilla chips for leftover salsa. (Ate slightly too much - small improvement over eating WAY too much)

Excercise - 1 hr pilates class

Water - Better today ~ probably closer to 70 oz.

Breakfast - oatmeal w/ sugar & pumpkin pie spice, rice milk
Lunch - sun dried tomato turkey sandwich w/ light mayo on homemade wheat bread, chips, 1/2 a grapefruit
Dinner - a large portion of spaghetti (actually it was spaghetti sauce over linguini)... I was so hungry after working out!
Water - 64oz
Excercise - I started the 2nd week of my program... my reps increased which caused my legs to be jello-like again , but I still enjoyed it... nothing a nice soothing HOT bath won't take care of, which is exactly what I did once I got home !

Shell... That's exactly how I count mine too ... We have to buy drinking water where I live (tap is disgusting) so we buy these cases of 16oz bottles, and that's what I drink all day. If I drink 4, then I know I've gotten 64oz in for the day.

breakfast- cereal with rice milk
snack- luna bar
lunch- leftover pulled chicken, 3 little rolls, and half a baked potato (ate too much)
so far I've skipped my afternoon snack- still feel full from lunch

dinner tonight will be with my daughter, but i don't know what I'll be eating yet..




Well I did eat that luna bar- good thing because we didn't get to dinner right away.. DD's fiance's car got stuck in the driveway! Oh no.....

then I had a chicken on the barbie with plain baked potato at the outback steakhouse and ate it all.. but we were there for almost 3 hours! That was a safe choice..... were you able to pass up the bloomin onion? I always have to have a little taste....

I need to take my sfs- not sure in what, it might just be tea.

Hello!
Exercise: None!

So my food budget for today is: 1225 calories.

Breakfast: LemonZest Luna Bar = 180 calories

Lunch: Two slices fresh french bread with ICBINB, 30 g baked lays, 2 arrowroot cookies = 476 calories

Dinner: Apricot glazed turkey breast with sweet potato (slow cooker recipe, my Dad made it for dinner.. I should post the recipe, it's really good) Yes, you should....sounds yummy! = 257 calories (I only ate a very small bit, and it said one whole serving is 357 so I am sorta guessing).

4 UFO, some jellybeans = 450 calories

For a total of... 1363 calories! 136 calories too many. That is ok....make up for it today!!

I forgot to report in yesterday, I didn't count calories but this is what I ate basically.. 2 slices white toast w/peanut butter, chicken fajita deli meat sandwich, sushi (rolls) for dinner (I had kappa rolls, avocado rolls, and a chicken teriaky roll) - it was SO GOOD.

Must get back on track tomorrow - must get over personal crises long enough to do some actual exercise and pay better attention to calories and stuff! Take care of YOU!! {{hugs}}

Cheers!
--Steph

Eating wise I was fairly good today. Crumpet for breakfast, salad with ryebread and egg for lunch and fresh pasta with tuna and olives for tea. Your food sounds yummy!!

A few snacks, mainly sweets (my downfall - and they always make me feel ill) and a reduced fat UFO.

Went to Yoga class, which was a really intense session - so I should have burned a few calories there. depending on our weight.... I think I burn about 350+/- in 60 mins.

I haven't lost any more weight this week, but I am a lot more toned from the Yoga and Pilates. That is a good thing still....

Breakfast - half white grapefruit, vanilla soy milk w/fiber
Snack - 16 oz coffee w/cream and sugar and the rest of my turkey sanwich from Monday's lunch.
Lunch - Grilled chicken breast with white rice and mango salsa
Snack - apple
Dinner - egg white omlet w/red pepper, spinach and mozz. topped w/salsa. yum! 2 slices sourdough with raspberry jam. A few tortilla chips for leftover salsa. (Ate slightly too much - small improvement over eating WAY too much)

Excercise - 1 hr pilates class GREAT!!

Water - Better today ~ probably closer to 70 oz. yAH!!

Lunch - sun dried tomato turkey sandwich w/ light mayo on homemade wheat bread You gotta tell me more about this one.... , chips, 1/2 a grapefruit
Dinner - a large portion of spaghetti (actually it was spaghetti sauce over linguini)... I was so hungry after working out!
Water - 64oz good!
Excercise - I started the 2nd week of my program... my reps increased which caused my legs to be jello-like again , I feel your pain (no, really I do...got my butt kicked yesturday too!!) but I still enjoyed it... nothing a nice soothing HOT bath won't take care of, which is exactly what I did once I got home !

Hey Shell- I've just been really busy with school/work. I'm still teaching my class o' 200, the new works festival I'm running is coming up (70 shows in 8 days), and I'm directing something and taking classes!! So, very busy.

I'm supposed to eat 20 points a day. I think the whole Weight Watchers thing changed since I last went, but when I was there I was doing the flex point thing where I have 20 points a day and 35 extra to eat whenever. I'm not really supposed to go under 20 (too few and your metabolism decides you're starving) but for some reason I wasn't very hungry the last couple of days.

I've been keeping up with everyone else's loss/gain/water consumption though!

Actually... the meat was made with the sun dried tomato in it... It's one of those more expensive brands that are made without anything artificial... no preservatives... and they sell it at our deli. That turkey was THE BEST sandwich meat I have ever tasted. YUMMY!

No, I just did a search for sundried tomato turkey lunchmeat on yahoo... and it came up.... it is even sold on Amazon LOL for like $6.99 + shipping... (but then I would have to slice it myself... and I just can't give it that thin...) I'm gonna check local stores to see if I can find any.... better yet, I might just call around.

had 2 bowls cornflakes, 2 bananas, luna bar, 2 pieces (small) leftover pizza, few pretzels and bought 25c worth of skittles from a candy machine! Also had coconut shrimp rice and broccoli for dinner with too many pistachios (was out of peanuts- d--- those pistachios are yummy!) Yes, they are.... I can't buy them for that very reason!! Got kind of loogy after workout this morning. Was hungry and then felt dizzy. Try some more protien about an hour before you work out. Then I got a little gassy and now I am a little bloated. Am going to have tea now. Did that help? Also rehab workout went pretty good. Only biked 20 minutes because a smoker started biking next to me and it made my lungs hurt. Oh my goodness... they were able to smoke inside?? no but the smell of smoke on her made me feel like my lungs were closing up. That is why I am anti-smoking (and I think it is a sound reason) Just saying. Sorry but it is true. No offense.






I will try more protein. Thanks! It was right after breakfast but I'll see what I can do. Last year I used to eat snickers bars when I bonked.

DEFINITELY the meatloaf from the newsletter! It's our favorite!

As for the snacking... I may actually try a protein shake. I know I get enough protein in the course of a day, but I do find I'm more filled-up and satisfied if I eat protein-rich foods. So I need to think of snacks I can have that have some protein to them. Luna bars do, of course, but obviously not enough - or maybe not enough compared to their sugar content, I don't know.

Side note, I wish I could find dairy-free english muffins! I'd be eating them all the time!

We've had the new WW breads (english muffins, bread and bagels) in our stores here in Ohio for about a month or so. Very low in fat and calories. They do contain high fructose if you are sensitive to that though. Check them out if they are available in your area.

It's going to sound awful, but most of the people up here in northern Maine are quite overweight. I'm a good weight for my height, but I look anorexic compared to most people here in my town.

Some low-fat and healthy foods are pretty easy to find, while others aren't. They've stopped carrying the Ragu Light sauces, for example, and all of the Hellmann's/Kraft Just2Good products. Thankfully, I can still get soy milk and rice milk, and I can still find tofu up here. But Rice Dream or Tofutti "ice cream"? I have to drive an hour south to find that, and it's not worth it to me.

I will definitely keep my eyes peeled for the WW breads... but I won't hold my breath. Something tells me it won't ever make it up here in the land of fatty pot roasts and Ho Ho's.

they are indeed. As, incidentally, are crumpets. For those of you in the US, you have to try crumpets as a safe snack (I eat them plain).

In fact I got some...haven't had English muffins in ages.

The best before dates are only a few days ahead tho so I don't know if they'd make the States. Maybe if any of the US lot come to Dublin (or us to Vegas) they could do deliveries?
