calories

Saturday, January 23, 2010

It is so frustrating to try and find calories that all say the same thing. I looked up Greek food today and got all kinds of calories. I know people make things with different seasoning and that makes a different. I know some use oil, some don't. I just went to a happy medium and hope for the best. I know what I ate was not fried, not sweet. So I just hope I did okay.
My calories said 1500, but my stomach says huh. I will just drink some water and maybe hot tea and just wait for tomorrow to eat something that I know what is in it. It really is frustrating to go out to eat you just never know just what you are eating.
I did have some good news. I was not going to weigh again until February but I just could not wait so I weighted this morning and so far I have lost 15 pounds since January 4. I know some of that was fluid but I know some of it was fat and I'm happy. I have five more pounds to my first goal, You know 20 pounds. I like that. First 20 will be gone soon and then on to the next 20 and so on.
I think I will go bike and see if I can burn about 100 calories. That will make me feel better about the whole calorie counting.

    That is wonderful weight loss. I know what you mean it makes it hard when you go to places you like to eat and it is hard to track what you have eaten.

    That's 15lbs you can say good-bye to and never see again. This plan we're on, if we stick with it, change our lifestyle to a healthy one, we never have to see the old, higher numbers again! I'm behind you, don't lety me catch up... emoticon

  That is great 15 pounds. You should be Proud. I know how you feel about the calories. I get so frustrated trying to pick foods and then count the calories. No matter what.. 15 pounds makes it all worth while. I hope to be as successful as you. Keep up the great work

    That's really good news on the weight loss, WOW. I always found once the weight started the downward spiral it seemed to keep going. I also found the same when gaining, easy to keep putting on.

exercise

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Well I'm proud of me. Yesterday I was so busy, going places, people needing attention (granddaughter, got shots) all kinds of things taking my time. About five o'clock I decided I needed to keep my streak alive so I did my 36 minutes on the bike and 20 minutes weight lifting. I was so proud after I did it. I just could not get my points.
I got kind of down this morning after I measured. There was no difference in the measuring tape. I know my blouses are fitting better and other things are looser. I'm not going to weight until February 4 so I thought maybe there would be a difference in the tape. I read some more of my Spark book again and got to feeling better. I have a goal to lose 20 pounds . When I reach that I'll go for the next 20 pounds so on and so on. I have other goals I am doing and I am on a streak of 18 days. I know this is from now on, eating healthy, exercising, drinking plenty water, Sparking, so what is the problem. So what if the scale does not move like I think it should. So what if the measuring tape does not move like I want it too. It will, in time. I get to feeling good and confident and I forget how big I am and what a journey I have before me but that is okay also. All I can do is one day at a time and I am going to do that day the best I can.

greek and lebanese food

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

I am so proud of myself. We went to take care of business and it was time to eat lunch. I knew I wanted to make wise choices but sometimes when we go out to eat I forget everything I have learned and overeat. Wellll we went to a Greek and Lebanese restaurant that we had never been to before and we made healthy choices. I had grilled shrimp, small salad, small serving of hummus and my husband wanted me to taste how tender the beef and lamb was so I had a bite, little bitty,. We had unsweetened tea which was great, it had mint in it. My husband had the beef and lamb but it was a decent serving, not too much. We were satisfied when we left. I was so proud we passed the test of going out to eat. I wondered how I would do. Its been 17 days since I started over and I have been doing great, eating healthy and exercising. I feel so peaceful and content. I am starting to read the Spark again. It really has touched a spot in me that needed motivating.

    Congratulations to you! I just started back three weeks ago myself. It is so exciting and energizing to see that one CAN have self-control, instead of mindlessly consuming food and not living in the moment, enjoying each bite. I have decided that I want to savor each taste. If I must consume the calories, I darned sure want to taste them! :-) Small bites, slowly chewing, and trying new flavorful foods makes this a food journey. Congratulations on your successful outing and I wish you many, many more!
