Amazingly Effective New Rules!
Before I start, I weigh 142.8 today - finally weigh what my ticker says I do! (And when I did weigh that, pre-binge, it was only at 1 p.m. on a day when I didn't eat or drink anything beforehand! Not my "true" weight.) I lost 0.6 pounds today... Read more
Day 6 - First Work Day
143.4 today - that's a loss of 0.4 since yesterday, and yesterday I'd lost 0.2 since the day before.
I survived the day at just under 1,300 calories so far...probably won't eat any more, which is related to one of the insights I had today (... Read more
Day 5 - Doing Very Well!
143.8 today...was hoping it'd be a little lower, but I bet it'll be down in the 142s tomorrow. Was able to save a whole lot of food for evening time so now I'm having a big chow party. :) Nice! Workout was good today too...was able to stay in ... Read more
Pretty optomistic today. I was very good with my program. I was able to stick to about 1,250 calories today, got in a full workout though I did go down to level 8 on the elliptical (had been doing 10) and read a magazine because I didn't quite... Read more
Day 3 and can no longer live on 1,200 calories
I was 146.0 today. Did pretty good until my evening workout. I got that exercise droop where I could barely walk home afterwards (I live 2 minutes from the gym). I only had one planned item left to consume - a 25-calorie diet hot cocoa. Didn... Read more
Day 2 - Thanksgiving Day
I weighed 148.4 this morning. I am absolutely determined to stick to my hardcore plan today. I'm drinking coffee now (almost 10 a.m.) and about to go to the gym for an hour of cardio, and I will log everything I ate after I come home from Than... Read more
A Very Inspired Day 1
"Day 1"...always so ripe with possibilities. This current Day 1 marks the first of ten days I have to get in shape before my brother's wedding. The dress I'm wearing is size 6. The good news is that I just tried it on and was actually able to... Read more
A dream that WILL come true...
It's February 2008, and I am in Jamaica. I have just checked in and put my suitcase in my room. What to wear to check out the resort? I look through all my teensy new clothes and settle on just a sexy bikini, cute short shorts, and flip flops... Read more
On Track and On Top of the World :)
How great do you feel when you've been doing well? Eating healthy, exercising, full of energy, looking good, pumped up with self-esteem. All of a sudden my big belly has shrunk back down close to pre-binge size, and best of all I'm getting clo... Read more
I've Been Learning...
Sure, I've gone on plan, off plan, on plan off, and now on again...but I like to think of it as a zig-zag that keeps getting closer to being a straight line. Each time I go off, I hope I go a little LESS off - noticing portion size, being able ... Read more
1. No deviating from food plan, period.
2. Go to gym after work before going home.
There. Don't have to debate about it. The answers are right there.... Read more
What Works for Me
CHALLENGES. I haven't proved to myself yet that I have made this a permanent lifestyle. I can sum up my entire SP experience like this:
Jan-April 2007: ON program. First time ever getting my weight below upper 140s. Strict, perfectionis... Read more
I will meticulously track and eat 1,475-1,525 balanced, healthy calories per day tomorrow (Wednesday), Thursday, and Friday. On Saturday we are going to an early Thanksgiving dinner, and I won't track but I will make good choices. Saturday nig... Read more
Gotta Do This One Thing...
I MUST spread out my food to make it last longer, take more/longer water/gum/plain old no eating breaks in between, and DON'T eat extra at night.
Even if I do this one little thing, I will be doing better than I have been!... Read more
Without really trying, I have managed to get back down to 147 from 152 in a few days. I do believe it is possible to keep my weight in the 140s while eating basically what I want with lots of exercise. Just a little control in the eating depar... Read more
