Here's my dieting history...
I started exercising back in college, oh, about 9 years ago, after I gained 25lbs. I lost 15lbs in three months over the summer when I was home by eating 1200 calories per day, not going out, and being VERY rigorous about what I ate, right down to the milk I drank. I continued exercising...first it was 5x/wk, now it's up to 6. I'd do cardio 45-60 minutes and then weights for 50-60 mins, with 5 mins of stretching afterwards. The next three years, I continued ...

I continued exercising...first it was 5x/wk, now it's up to 6. I'd do cardio 45-60 minutes and then weights for 50-60 mins, with 5 mins of stretching afterwards. The next three years, I continued to lose 15lbs over the summer, then lost an additional 5lbs after I graduated. Things were going great, till about a year and a half ago, when my metabolism slowed and my sugar tolerance decreased (which is AWFUL, because I love sweets!). I gained about 15lbs, and none of my old clothes fit anymore. While I'm technically not overweight, I'm still at that upper end, and for all the exercise I do, I want it to show. I'm at about 23% body fat (I have one of those fancy scales) and I'd like to get down to about 19-20%. Which is why I'm here...

I drink protein shakes, usually one for breakfast. My dinner is usually the problem. I like to graze. I eat a bowl of cereal (something good, like Special K or Raisin Bran), a bowl of air-popped popcorn (which is GREAT...only 120 calories per 3tbsp of seeds! and 5g of fiber!)--unfortunately, I'll have to stop with the Parkay Spray Butter I love so much, or at least account for 50 extra calories--light pudding cup, 2 cookies, low-fat string cheese, marshmallows, etc. I do eat the bulk of my calories at nite, but I don't really get hungry through the day. I try and track my calories...I've found it's easier if I write everything down ahead of time. I've started chewing sugarless gum to curb cravings. I'm aiming for about 1000-1100 calories per day. Also, I'm a vegetarian, so I don't eat any kind of meat (fish, chicken...but I do eat eggs and milk).

My Program:
I think I've found what I need to do to succeed...
As with when I lost weight in college, I need to:
Limit going out to a min.
Drink 8 8oz. glasses of water a day.
Do 45mins-60mins of cardio in the morning, 6days/wk
Do at least 30mins of weights 6 days a week
2-3 nights a week, I need to be active. In college, over the summer, I rollerbladed.
Cut calories. Eat no more than 1300 a day.

Congratulations on minding your calories. You must be on a streak by now. Watching nutrition is important.

It sounds like you have changed your goals to focus more on nutrition than exercise. Is that right?

Nope, but I HAVE been counting my calories this week and doing well! Having my BF monitor me has been good!

How did you do this week? Did you do your before bed routine?

Thank you! I'm now having my BF check my written food journal nightly to help keep me honest!
