I consumed 1013 calories today. I missed eating a fruit at breakfast. I had to get a blood test (for cholesterol) this morning and didn't eat my cereal until 10 AM. I had a good lunch and ate the orange I was supposed to eat for breakfast as my afternoon snack. I was also supposed to eat a dairy or protein for my afternoon snack and did not. I had brought cottage cheese, I still felt filled from lunch. So, the bottom line is I got behind on eating and never quite caught up!! I did eat a good dinner and nutrisystem dessert. I also did not drink as much water as I should have today. I worked from 10 - 4:30 today. I have bottled water in my office. I drank A LOT of hot tea instead. (No sugar, so it wasn't too bad).
Sorry if this is bouncing around, I am analyzing it so I eat at 100/150 more cals tomorrow.

I was participating in a SparkPeople Poll and was asked if I was fat growing up. (May not have been the exact wording, but that is how I read it).
I did not know what to check.
Here was my comment:
"I was always told I was by my parents, but when I was older and looked at my pictures I was only chunky in 7th and eighth grade, the rest of the time I was thin. They never told me I was thin - I think it is why even when I am wearing a size 4 or 6 petite I still feel like I am fat! I know it isn't right, but I will never feel like I am thin because of what I was told growing up!"
I am not sure why they did that. My mom is very thin (105 pounds/size 4 petite). She has always been very disciplined - consistently. She has not eaten a dessert or added sugar to anything in over 30 years. At one point she gave up so many different kinds of foods, she was down to a simple salad and I know she went under 100 pounds. She has run countless marathons and 5ks and exercises for 2 - 3 hours per day.
My dad is a different story. He had a beer belly when I was growing up, is a little heavier now. He has huge problem with portion control. He can eat a box of spaghetti by himself in one sitting. He has gone to Pritikin twice, came back thin and eating the right stuff, but ends up eating too much of the right stuff and gaining it all back. He tells us all when we are not eating the right things, but he will grab it in a second off of a buffet table. He acts like he gets desserts for us, but he eats them. He golfs everyday but has to use a golfcart on the course so...
And, even today at age 48, when I lose weight and am at a 4/6 petite my parents tell me I am getting there!
So, I am wondering:
*Do I end up giving up when I get to a size 4/6 petite because I figure - what's the point? I got there and I am still fat? Why bother?
It sounds so stupid, but it is engrained in my head. How do I get past it??

Today I consumed 1130 calories and lost 1.8 pounds. I haven't wavered off of my food plan. I am eating a ton of veggies - mostly broccoli. I got in 1 hour of exercise (mainly core and arms). The rest of the time, I kept my foot elevated. I watched to movies on t.v., I read the latest Prevention Magazine, and downloaded the book "Unlimited" by Jillian Michaels which I am going to start reading tonight. It will keep my focused. My husband and I also may watch the movie "Bridesmaids".
It started snowing in the early afternoon here. The snow is sticking to the cars, road looks okay. One of my boys is working at a restaurant until 11 and then going to a Halloween party at his college. The other is at his girlfriend's house. I am hoping the roads don't ice up. Hard to believe I have to worry about that in October!!

Today I consumed 1041 calories which was really good because I went out to dinner with my husband and friends. They ordered antipasto for an appetizer - I ate 2 olives. I had 2 small lobster tails, a side salad and mixed veggies (squash, zucchini, onions and red peppers) and an unsweetened iced tea. I did not eat any of the homemade rolls, lunchmeats or cheeses. Yayyy!
I took the day off of work today too. I sat with my foot up most of the day. I did sit and go through old paperwork - threw most of it out. My husband and I went out and did some errands, too. I shopped a little bit at the drugstore and sat in the car while he shopped in Home Depot. I had this wild idea of a wine cork backsplash in my kitchen. We have been saving our wine corks for at least 7 years. He is going to make it using all the corks this weekend. I will post a picture when it is done.
Have a great weekend!
