Golden Corral

Thursday, August 06, 2009

we went out to eat tonight and desided on golden corral. Im really very proud of myself because I controled myself quite well. My husband and sister dident seem to do as well but I geuss the only person you can control is yourself.

I wrote down what I ate as I ate it so I could keep track.... I dident eat alot of any one food but I did eat alot of little bites. There was a few things I wanted to try... like the wheat rolls, which a normal person would go, hey wheat rolls they must be good for me. then you look at the bottom of the plate and see there is about half an inch of melted butter.... and some of the veggies were the same way... if there is spots of oil floating on the top of the liquid the veggie is in, I dont touch it.

Im proud of myself though.... the whole meal was only 14 points, which is a little on the heavy side (my dinners usually range around 7-10 points) but not bad for eating out.


On the down side we have eaten out alot in the past two weeks... I feel kinda bad for spending the money and I hope there isent some hidden bad guys in the food Ive been eating that F*cks my weigh in all up.

I geuss we will see..... even if I am up a pound or only down a few points its ok.... I did loose 6.6 pounds last week so I figure there would be some rebound of some kind.



Photo Food Journal ... + feeling much better

Tuesday, August 04, 2009

Im feeling much better today... dont know what my problem last night was, I just felt blah. I really appreciate all the supportive comments I got on my blog though last night, reading them really helped me from making a stupid desision. I ended up eating a huge salad.... It was like 5 points that I dident have but I knew it would fill me up so I wouldent want to eat more. Plus I exercised, even though I really dident want to. I slept on it and felt really good today.

Anywhoo, I did something totaly pointless today.... I took pictures of everything I ate. It actually kept me pretty honest though... who wants to take a picture of a handfull of triscuits or a spoon full of peanut butter. so I dident eat thouse snacky foods that I was tempted to eat.... plus I had fun taking pictures of all the things I ate.


Breakfast - strawberrie wheat thins, glass of milk, banana

Lunch - Whole wheat pasta with steamed veggies and tomato pesto / salad with light ranch/ glass water

Snack - 1/2 can progresso chicken noodle soup

Dinner - Jambalya with turkey sausage, yellow corn, slice toasted bread

Snack- Mixed drink with 8oz Diet Mnt. Dew and 1 oz Vanilla Vodka

Snack - 3/4 cup light ice cream / 5 mini chocolate chips

Snack - cup mint tea, 1 tsp honey, 1 square dove dark chocolate


Did great today .... ate right on target :-)

I feel like crap right now. I dont feel like exercising and I really want to eat something bad for me.

I Just want to go crawl into bed and sleep untill I dont feel like this anymore.

There isent any reason for me to feel bad, I just do.

    Hey, girl!
I know exactly how you feel. Just BLAH for no reason. A nap will definitely help you feel better, and keep you from eating junk that you're going to regret later.

    Everyone has crappy days - what matters is what you do with them.

Try a warm beverage. Maybe a bowl of cereal, I eat the pre-sweetened because the calories are about the same. A piece or 2 of fruit is nice.

Try taking a nap. Sometimes when the body is tired it calls for junk food when a nap is really all that is in order.

Is there any chore that you find relaxing? Sometimes I like to iron my linen napkins. Sounds silly but whatever works.

And if you make some less than desirable decisions, that happens too. You are doing super great - just keep trying.

    Hey Jessica,
Sorry that you are feeling like crap....really glad that you shared that there is no real reason for you to feel that way!!!! We all have those days girl...but it to will pass. Good idea to go sleep it off, but an even better idea is to work it off with exercise. You get two great things for the price of one...burn off some fat and improve your mood girlfriend. It helps me to remember what my goals are at moments like that...to get me over that hump. Sit back and visualize where you are going. See yourself wrapping that regular size towel around yourself that you talked about on your sparkpage. You just got to walk yourself through those crappy moments!!! We all are rooting for you!!!!

    Please do not give up!!! You are so worth it to keep going!!! I wish someone had told me this yesterday...oh well move on. If you need something fattening to eat cut it in half and enjoy the other half the next week or write down on a list about everything that you have accomplished thus far. Also if you gain... so what. At least you know what happened and that you can take it off easily. Set backs are part of the journey.

    You are doing a very good thing for yourself. I am proud of myself that I went to the gym by myself, I usually go with my workout buddy. Made cupcakes and did not eat one.
Special thing I am going to do for myself. Make myself a baked apple for my dessert tonight.

6.6 Pounds!!!

Sunday, August 02, 2009

well this past week payed off... I was really good, I only ate a few of my weekly flex points and exercised almost every day for 20minutes - 1 hour.

I stepped on the scale yesterday and got the best number I have had since starting.... 6.6 pounds! I really don't think I lost that much, I will prob see the rebound this week but it felt great seeing that number on the scale.

230.2 ..... wow, it almost seems unreal. When I think about myself I feel like I weigh 260 something for some reason, Its hard to wrap my head around being in the 220s because when I started at 273 pounds that just seemed impossible to me for some reason. I think its because the 220s are so so close to under 200 pounds and I havent been there in so long I think I had just given up on ever getting to my goal. Sad but true.

I'm so excited and happy. So far I have lost around 43 pounds!!!! It feels awesome and really drives me to keep going.


My husband has lost close to 75 pounds since the first of the year and I'm so proud of him. It's amazing losing weight together because when we started dating 4 years ago we were both bigger than we are now ..... so this is the smallest we have ever seen each other, its like discovering a new person every day. Noticing cheek bones or hips or how we can now wrap our arms around each other and do so many new things in the bedroom that I wont go into.... Its nice though and it makes me happy that he is so much healthier. When he was up at 330 pounds when we started I was getting so scared for his health, he dident look good or feel good, kept having chest pains (which is not good for anyone, expecially someone who is only 27 years old). I'm happy that our kids will never know the unhealthy parents we use to be.

I wish I could inspire the rest of our family to start living healthier lives as well but I geuss people can only change, when they make that choice.
