Before becoming diabetic I didn't eat much, basically one big meal a day and maybe one small during that day. It is really difficult to eat six small meals during the entire day. I really don't want to eat and I'm not feeling the hunger so it makes it even harder. I am called a camel eater because I would eat to get all I could so that I didn't have to eat all the time. I am still having problems with breakfast. It should be the biggest meal of the day but it's not, I'm not hungry when I first wake up or even my morning time.

I did figure out that for me to eat right I need to tip my pyramid upside down. Instead of breakfast like cereal or some hot cereals I should have supper. The largest meal of the day, then have lunch as usual and breakfast, a smaller one in the evening. That worked so well when I had to make eating adjustments and helped my diabeties, but I'm still not hungry enough to eat in the mornings.

I became diabetic about 5 years ago. I doubled in size within that year. I wasn't over eating, I was just not eating correctly. I don't feel like I should have suddenly gained weight for that. I was skinny and had a nice body up until that time.

I wish I could just suddenly learn to get hungry and eat the way I should so I can be better and for whatever reason I just can not get consistant on this. Who eats when they are not hungry enough to even think about eating?

The slowest loser allows me to take the time that I am going to need to keep working on this eating thing, but I haven't given up because of SP and because of The Slowest Loser.

Thank you each and everyone of you. I'll get it I know I will.

Thank you,

Ms. Roby

Thanks Pete-Q and thanks for the thumbs up. It really made me smile today! Please post your meals if it helps...I like looking at meal plans, but the nutrition tracker on SP doesn't summarize, so knowing you are having a 350 calorie dinner that includes a sandwich and salad is like broken into 10 items!

I am on track for a 1500 calorie day. I have 2 snacks planned and REALLY REALLY want to make one night PERFECT -- that is, nothing more than my planned snacks and a cup of tea.

Distraction is great..I often start cleaning off the table while the kids are still eating, but my husband understands I need to 'get away' from the food or I will pick, pick and pick. This is the hardest at 11 pm, when I should be sleeping, but going through my head is..."you aren't hungry...don't go get food...no, you aren't hungry...but...I can't sleep...sleep is important...maybe if I just get something little I'll be able to sleep and so the self talk goes!

Have not exactly figured out my meal plan tomorrow yet. I have to eat dinner sitting at my son's baseball game. I'll bring a salad with chopped up chicken, veggies, and some nuts tossed on and then probably some small starchy item, like some whole grain crackers. I'll have a bigger snack before we leave (game is from 6-8, leave about 5:30...kids and I will get home about 4:30, enough time to grab something for them, change into uniform and go...more than you want to know, lol)...When I get home, it takes some winding down, so I'll plan two smaller snacks for then.

So, just need to figure bkfast and lunch. Lunch is pretty standard, I have it at work every day..Bkfast I vary a bit...hmmm...

Jen, I think your doing great!! You sound a lot like me!! We eat just to eat. I am not going to lie... I LOVE TO EAT! It's sad because I know when I am full and how to eat correctly, but I choose to keep eating! Though, I find when I am done eating, if I get up right away and get busy doing something (usually I clean) I can distract myself and forget I that I want to eat more. I think posting all your meals is a good way to meat your goals!!! Maybe I should start doing it with you! Good Luck!! I think your doing a good job!!

Yesterday evening was not stellar. OK, it was about 500 calories over stellar.

I talked to my husband a bit this morning (who usually is very unhelpful about this, to be honest), but I just said, I need to refocus on this plan and not allow things to pull me aside. It could have been alot worse last night, but I stopped myself and said, enough (and through out the container).

Today, I have gone back to having 2 snacks at night, spread out after dinner (I just failed planning only one) and am upping my calories to a higher end. And, for me, my problem isn't being hungry, I'll eat at night when I'm NOT hungry. This is where the problem is. I hope that by calculating out 1500 cals (top of my range), I won't give myself the "excuse" that I still have a few calories left and this "won't hurt."

So, my meal plan, plonked into SP nutrition tracker for today is as follows. I did my workout already: 45 mins stairstepper intervals and then about 20 mins of resistance (weights -- combo free and machines). I do PT for a back injury and will do that this afternoon (ran out of time this morning, gotta work, lol). PT is all ab excercises, but nothing intense.

BKfast: 1 whole wheat English Muffin with 1/2 TBS of peanut butter (200 cals total) with 1/2 cup of cottage cheese. Total = 280

Snack 1: almonds and veggies (120 cals).

Lunch: tuna, salad, nuts, and melon (230 cals)

Snack 2: wrap with a hardboiled egg and 1 TBS cottage cheese (I like to mash the egg into the cottage cheese for an egg salad wrap). 135 calories.

Dinner: (350 calories) = whole wheat bun with 3 oz chicken and an avocado/fat free mayo spread I'll make. Salad with strawberries.

Snack 3: 1 wrap with 1/2 TBS of peanut butter. 1 Atkins day bread bay. Total = 260 calories.

Add in 2 cups of milk and I'm at 1465 calories, 177 grams carbs, 46 grams fat, and 115 grams protein.

Always be ready to adapt. Tried the smoothie and I didn't like it that much (certainly not enough to commit a large calorie snack to it), so I refigured my plan and am still good to go.

Tomorrow, I'll have to plan a bit differently too (than originally planned)..and Wednesday is totally blown out of the water as planned (my son's baseball tournament has a game that day, that wasn't scheduled until we won the game on Sunday night). But, I know tomorrow here is what I think will work for me.

bkfast of a muscle milk lite bar and 1 packet of oatmeal (260 total calories). Add 90 calories for the milk in my coffee and tea all day. Total at 350.

Snack #1 = 1/2 cup cottage cheese and 1/4 oz almonds (120 calories). Total at 470.

Lunch (350 cals) = tuna packet (70 cals) on a salad with sunflower seeds and lots of veggies (150 cals) and 1 whole wheat wrap (50 cals) and 1 apple (80 cals): Total 820.

Snack #2 = slice of whole wheat bread and 1/2 TBS of peanut butter (105 calories). Total 925.

Dinner (350 cals) = chicken sandwich with avacado/light mayo spread (3 oz chicken, light roll, 1 oz avocado and 1 TBS fat free mayo, seasoning, lettuce, tomato) = 250 calories; 1 cup of melon (50) and salad greens (50). Total = 1275.

Snacks: oatmeal packet with water (100 cals), 100 calorie muscle milk chocolate (I freeze this for a nearly gelato/icee frozen thing --- yummy). I may need more fat for the day, so instead of oatmeal, I'd do some nuts or a nut butter spread onto some whole grain crackers or slice of bread...

Total for day is 1475. Bit higher than 1400, but if my workout includes the planned 45 mins cardio and 30 mins weights, that is a good amount for me.

Just plugged in my food for today and it totals 1388 calories, 171 grams carbs, 39 grams fat, and 111 grams protein. Low end of my carb range, low to mid fat and mid-high protein. Perfect for me.

Did a cardio workout this morning on the elliptical for 60 minutes; first 10 mins easy, next 20 mins climbing (increase resistance), last 30 intervals. I do this workout often and its nothing 'new' to me.

My workout issues = back injury (torn disc) that I must treat with care, meaning weight liftine/training/the fitness part of the Abs plan I cannot really follow too much. I do PT for my back (which really is all ab work), but what I can't do is the lifting and toning I need to. Alas, I'll keep plugging away.

I'm still really struggling with my high weight at 153 lbs. I feel uncomfortable in my clothes and working out at this weight, so I know I must change it.

I have been on SparkPeople for a while, but I just haven't been doing too much lately. This week I am going to start adding all that I am eating into the Nutrition Tracker each day, and I will also watch my portions and what I am eating. I have also found a lovely walking trail nearby, and I am going to find my pedometer and get back out and start walking again. I hope to get out at least every other day. I know things work better for me if I have to record everything I do, then I can see where I am going wrong. I love to read all your good ideas.

Great posts everyone. I think the nutrition section is the most important part of Spark People. It has really helped me to eat foods that will keep me satisfied and accountable for what I eat. I think my food is visible to anyone who wants to take a look. It is all simple stuff.

Hope everyone who is trying a 'new plan' this week has great success. I started on Saturday simply because I needed too get right into it once I had the ingredients and all meals planned because I tend to lapse big time over the weekend.

I have done well today and have my snacks left for this evening. Hope to have NOTHING else but those snacks. I CAN do it.

I have planned tomorrows meals on the ABs plan and here goes. I have the "power foods" in each meal and snack, expcept one really.

Bkfast (total 320 cals) = 1/2 cup cottage cheese, packet oatmeal made with water, and 1/4 oz almonds (that is 6 whole almonds). 3 power foods (low fat dairy, oatmeal, and almonds.

Snack #1 (100 cals) = 1 cup watermelon and 1/4 oz almonds. Power food = almonds (watermelon is a cousin of the berry power food and we have it in the house).

Lunch: 230 cals = 2 oz cubed chicken on a big salad that includes 1 TBS of sunflower seeds. power food = seeds and chicken and spinach in salad.

Snack #2: 100 cals = 1 whole wheat wrap with 1 slice of american 2% cheese (melted in the microwave, yummy). 2 power foods - low fat dairy and whole grain bread.

Dinner (300 calories) - no real power food, per say, but I'm using a veggie burger (made with soy and whole wheat bun, so sorta got it). Morning star griller burger, light whole wheat bun, and salad.

Snack #3 (250 cals): whole wheat wrap with 1 tsp peanut butter and a pumpkin smoothie. Power foods = whole wheat wrap, peanut butter (all natural), and the dairy in the smoothie (and can't beat plain pumpkin for the fiber and the nutrients...its a star).

Add 90 calories in one cup of milk throughout the day in coffee and tea. Total 1400 cals.

I always put these into the SP nutrition tracker too to make sure I'm good with protein, carbs, and fat. Sometimes I'm a bit shy on the carbs, but that works for me perfectly.

I too after struggling for quite a while decided to look into the menus provided by SP instead of going it on my own. I just started yesterday so will not know for sure how it is going to go until next Sunday my usual weigh day.

Thanks for the smoothie recepie. I am a chocoholic and to have a recipe to work with will be great.

Maureen,

I understand totally and one of the hardest things is to get back on track after overeating...often I figure, oh, what the heck!

As for the plan I'm trying, one thing they incorporate is one meal a week where you 'eat anything you want" --- not binge and not like all day, but if you "want to eat 4 slices of pizza, eat them."...then, back on to the next meal on plan totally.

I find that for me, that can be dangerous and I have not decided if I plan to do this or not. If I do, it will likely be on Sunday, when my family does pizza night...I won't go crazy, but I'll get a single serve frozen pizza and not worry too much if it has 400 calories and no nutrition to it (i.e., all carbs and fat). I think this works for some people and works for others. I don't know yet.

For me, I will say last night I had about 300 calories more than I planned in my meal. I know what triggered it, but I will NOT do that today. I need to follow this plan -- I WAS NOT hungry when I ate what I did. So, I must remind myself to "tough it out" literally --- that is, don't eat just because its habit and you are so used to it and it 'relaxes' you (I tell myself, 'oh, just get it over with, eat something and then it will stop going around in your head and you'll be able to sleep...).

Well, I had best get going. Off to the gym. I have a plan for tomorrow, but need to look at it abit and make a few changes...so far, I'm good for today.

I was interested in this title because I tried something new this week (I don't know why it worked, but it did). I went to a party Friday night and "blew it", but I did so consciously (I was willing to write down everything I put in my mout) AND I DIDN'T FEEL SHAMED THE NEXT DAY. I just did my regular stuff and got back on track. I think for me that shame thing causes more problems than anything else.

Try tracking your food. I started doing this and it really helps. When you can see how many calories you've already consumed and what you have remaining, really seems to help. It makes you think twice about what you put in your mouth. I prefer to have my own menus. It's easier with the family and being the growing season here right now, makes it even easier. I've really gone and made my main foods at my meals the veggies. I do have a protein, but have learned to eat less of it. Good luck! emoticon

I am new to SP and have already gone backwards. Last week I walked three days ( a plus for me) and really tried to watch my intake of calories. Then came Friday, I went to lunch with a friend and did wonderful, until I was asked if I wanted dessert!!!!
Oh no! Yes, I did succumb and we shared a chocolate
disaster.........( not really the name of the dessert but it should be) After that I really lost it with Pizza and a glass of wine. I know it was a disaster.
Yesterday was filled with a b'day party for my grandson , of course with cake, more pizza and here I am today going up on the scale instead of down.....
It's time to get back on track and use the menus provided by SP. I think my major problem is I think I can monitor my food making my own food choices. Reality is , I can't! I will try to use the menus provided by SP this week and see if I can make a stab at this weight loss thing once again!
My metabolism is so messed up by all the diets I have tried over the years I think I gain weight just breathing.....
Thanks for listening to my rant! Any suggestions will be welcome! Week 2 New Plan (for me)

There's nothing wrong with using the word "diet". It comes from the Greek word "diaita", meaning way of life. So to lose weight and keep it off we need to change our way of life.

I Love to 'blather' and it helps me focus. I'm heading into my 'danger' time of the day: evening after dinner. I have my snack ready to go, but what has caused me to gain has been eating, and eating at night.

So, must do well tonight.

I will come on each day and write out what my meal plan is...I know, I log it in, but really, putting it here helps me too and maybe gives people ideas.

Sunday will be:
bkfast (330 calories)= 1 whole egg and 1 egg beater (140 calories), cooked with some veggies (onions, mushrooms, spinach, and tomato (30 cals), 1 cup each of watermelon and cantelope (100 cals) and then 1 slice of bread with a bit of low fat margarine (60).

WORKOUT

Lunch (300 cals): 2 oz salmon (from a pouch = 60 cals), salad greens and veggies (100 calories), 1 slice of bread (45), and 2 oz avacado (if ripe, if not, 1 TBS of peanut butter or nuts = 100 cals).

Dinner (330 cals): Jen's fajitas: 3 oz cooked chicken (60); 3 cups of veggies -- 2 cups of mutlicolored peppers and 1/2 cup of onions and 1/2 cup of tomato (about 80 cals). Two whole wheat small wraps (100 cals), salad greens and some more veggies (50 cals), and then 1 oz avacado (if ripe) or 2 TBS shredded 2% cheese (45 cals).

Total without snacks: 960. Add 90 cals for 1 cup skim milk for my coffee and tea. That is 1050. Target is 1400, so I have 350 in snacks.

Snacks 1 (120 cals) 1 yogurt (80 cals) and 1/4 oz nuts.

Snack 2 (85 cals): 1 whole wheat wrap and 1 tsp peanut butter.

Snack 3 (140): oatmeal made with water and 1/4 oz chopped nuts into it...or, SB diet high protein bar (cals the same), just more of a treat.

Thank you so much for sharing. I like chocolate peanut butter flavors. This sounds like something a little sweets that will satisfy my tooth and body. Again thanks a lot for taking your time and sharing everything.

Here is the chocolate PB smoothie. This makes 2 servings and each serving is 200 calories. Each of the ingredients has 100 calories, there are 4 main ingredients. The more ice you add, the thinner it will be, but the more volume you'll get. Divide whatever you get in half.

Note, this is different than the recipe the plan has, but I adapted it for a bit lower calories and to work with what I like.

1 container of vanilla yogurt (fat free or low fat); I use Blue Bunny light which has 80 calories per; most you find have 90-110 calories. You can use plain yogurt if you want, of course.

1 container of 100 calorie chocolate muscle milk lite shake. If you don't have this, use 3/4 to 1 cup of fat free milk and a scoop of chocolate whey protein powder (example brand is EAS). This will be however, 200 calories, vs. the 100 calories and add up to 250 cals per serving for the smoothie, more than I wanted for a snack. I love the muscle milk lite 100 cal shakes (8 oz size) alot, so I figured....

1 Tablespoon of natural peanut butter (the kind you have to stir with oil at the top --- its just peanuts and salt). If you want, use whatever peanut butter you have. - 100 cals

1 packet of plain oatmeal, made with water (let it cool a bit too) - 100 cals.

6-8 ice cubes.

Put in your blender, whir it up. Divide in half, drink. I added 2 packets of splenda, I like sweetness.

I plan to put mine in the freezer tonight to get nearly frozen (I often freeze containers of yogurt and you get something almost like an icee type). My husband drank the other half. Using 8 ice cubes, I got two 1 3/4 cup servings (a big size, I was surprised).

Other smoothies that I plan to make on this plan use vanilla yogurt container, vanilla muscle milk 100 calorie shake, oatmeal and then strawberries or other berries (3/4 to 1 cup of berries).

Instead of the oatmeal and fruit for a different one, I'll add 1 cup of plain pumpkin and a dash of cinnamon for a pumpkin one. All of these will wind up with 150 to 200 calories per.

I'm not a fan of smoothies or drinking my meals, so I don't know how often I'll do them (some people really like them), but we'll see how it works for me. My husband, who HATES oatmeal, didn't notice the oatmeal at all.

I wrote a blog on my menu for the next two weeks but it's titled "Beating The Scale".
I think it explains where I am at in my plan.

I went to the doctor and found out that I had lost 8 pounds since starting SP. I really wasn't sure as my scale does not work properly so it's been hard to tell.

I now go water walking about 2 or 3 times a week. Where we go in this town, we get to walk around the pool area that was specifically made for rafting only [that is during the time the pool is open for rafting, but after it's open to water walking.] Because they have a system to get the water to flow in different directions it is easy to get thrown off track. LOL However, I am disabled and go to aquatic theray, where the water is not swirling in different directions and I tip over a lot. The water walking water keeps me standing very easy because once I start to fall one way the water throws me back the other way. Water walking is for 45 minutes and it's the only place that I can stand up for that long. Outside of it, I last anywhere between 10 to 20 minutes.
Yesterday evening, I tried to walk the opposite direction in the water walking but oh my gosh, it was near impossible. The water was made to push the rafters through with ease but it is one exercise to try and walk against the flow. I think it works off more than the walkers or those who run through the water walking. I spend a little time now walking and turning around and trying to walk the other way to include in my exercise there.

This is my first menu that I have tried and it's the first month of cleaning out the cabinets and replacing with good foods. I keep forgetting about the menu, but I don't worry, I already prepared myself to know that change can take a little time. I add one change to my routine every two weeks here at SP so that I don't overwhelm and then fail at this. The two weeks is the limit I set to try and get a habit formed with the new introduction item I'm trying to add in. That is why my menu is only for two weeks.

This seems to be working. It might be the slow way but in the end it's the best way. At least for me.

I love the slowest loser! It's so inspiring and so right on in the posts it makes.

I hope and pray for everyone to succeed!
Have a Great Day all!


Thank you,

Ms. Roby

Oh thanks for sharing. As I have no real food plan I am always interested in seeing what works for others. (And I hope this works for you!)

If it works for you great,and if it meets your daily nutrition even better.

We all got something that seems to work and some of them are pretty weird, but if it works for you, do it.

Good Luck !

Oh Great Spirit who dwells in the sky, lead us to the path of peace and understanding. Our lives are so short here, walking upon Mother Earth's surface. Let our eyes be opened to all the blessings you have given us. Please hear our prayers, oh Great Spirit.

Today is the first day of a new plan I'm going to do. I need it. I gained 3 lbs this week (yup, its possible)...I've been sliding down the darkside for along time.

I am at 153 and want to be at 140. 13 pounds. Lucky number. I'm using the ABS diet plan as a basis to plan my meals using some of their recipes, but with the main idea of eating 5-6 times per day, having protein, fat, and carbs at each meal, with focus on certain foods that are nutritional stars, so to speak.

Today's menu is:

1 whole wheat wrap with 1 TBS peanut butter. Already ate that.

WORKOUT

1 Muscle Milk light protein bar

salad (inc. spinach) with veggies, tuna, and avocado and 1 slice of whole wheat bread (if you are a cracker fan, put those here)

1 cup of melon and berries and 1 yogurt

4 oz pork chop, steamed green beans and mushrooms, 4 oz sweet potato or 2 slices bread (thinking of making a sandwich with the pork, have not decided).

I need to do this. Hope everyone doesn't mind me sharing these, as its keeping me going.
1 chocolate peanut butter smoothie (8 oz)
