I saw you zoom past me on the Fitbit leaderboard, JOL.

I know it means a lot that you were able to remain binge-free the whole time you were away. That is so cool. Sorry about the food poisoning, though.

I think the idea of a new thread devoted specifically to 4-day wins is great.

2010 WIN got us started experimenting and discovering how useful the technique of thinking in 4-day increments can be. Some team members have said they have trouble with long-term goals. Learning to think "I can do anything for 4 days" might be right up their alley. I would love for more people to learn how to do 4-day wins and how they contribute to the lasting changes we hope to make. Who knows? We may have company on a new thread, if we throw in a little FAQ or review as we go along..

The customized 4-day wins and checklists that you and SUSAN have develped, over time, are amazing tools. Always evolving, very specific on each behavior you want to strengthen and always linked to a reward for completion of the win..I wouldn't want to see them go away. That's why I was asking what you wanted to do about "Live the Hell Out of 2012."

Rewarding oneself is a tough concept. Remember how we resisted rewards in the beginning because we were not used to doing nice things for ourselves? We didn't exactly know where to start, but we plunged ahead. Onward, HO!

Anything YINZ want to do is cool with me. Feel free to start the thread, or if you would rather I do it, no prob. Let's see what SUSAN thinks.

Happy New Year everyone! emoticon emoticon

I just got back and need to reestablish myself on my message boards. I was binge free the whole time!!! I also got a lot of exercise and a little food poisoning yesterday. My stomach is still in turmoil, but at least the "extreme end" is not acting up as much... emoticon

I love my 4 day wins and want to continue them. I love the rewards, and the freedom of thinking of only 4 days at a time.

Susan and Boo -- Susan, not sure if you want to continue them and it won't hurt my feelings if you don't. Even if I just do it, maybe it would be good to open a 4 day win topic, if that's okay with Boo. I've always been a little concerned that my long messages full of 4 day wins are confusing and tedius for some members. Boo, let me know. We can post a final message here to direct folks to the new Lean and Mean topic. Let me know what you think!

Since this tread serves well as part of your routines and as a place to keep track of 4-day wins, JOL and SUSAN, we can continue to use it. It's also a good long-term touchstone for everyone, since we have a number of friends who check in here from time to time..

If the 2012 in the title of the thread bothers anyone, we can ask our CASSIE to scroll back to her initial post and change 2012 to 2013. Since she created the thread, only she can change the title.

Happy New Year!

I am about to start a thread for 2013, "Lean and Mean in 2013", just in time to switch our long and short-term goal postings there, before we zoom off the the year-end Sparkie cliff..

See YINZ there.

I'm working on Day 14 of sane eating.

Sunday, I did rock climbing at a local gym with a friend from work, or I should say I tried to do rock climbing. I fell once, not too bad really, but also couldn't finish most of the courses I tried. After that workout, my hands (and forearms) were so tired that I couldn't dig a piece of gum out of my pants pocket. Then last night, I got on my stationary bike and pedaled for an hour. Today, my left hand is still weak and tired. I'm thinking I need to do that more often, maybe then I'll see some improvement.

Monday, a different friend from work came over and walked with me for over 2 hours, then we ate brownies. It was a really good exercise and pleasant time. Meanwhile, my muscles are still sore and I added to it with rock climbing and walking today. Different muscles get sore with every exercise and I actually feel great about it, I'm back in the game!

Tuesday, I took the day off of formal exercise because DH needs help with some house projects. I suspect I'll be burning a good amount of calories helping him.

Wednesday, I did another full body strength training session and 37 minutes on my stationary bike.

Thursday, I got a 30 minute walk in at work.

Friday, I'm moved lumber with DH for 45 minutes, and later did 60 minutes of cardio on the stationary bike.

Today, I've spent a few hours cleaning, and soon I'm going to the rock gym. I'll see how long I last...

Rewards still owed: I owe the piggy bank $130, the groupon haircut, and 30 minutes sitting outside for completing my first 4DW back from the abyss.

New 4DW deficit goals: 500 adjusted calorie deficit daily, or alternatively 1200 calories (minimum).

I updated my "Other Goals" on SP to reflect my new program which includes 1 day of strength training per week, reducing my PT exercises to once a week, and 2 high-intensity exercise sessions per week. Also, low aerobic exercise during break at work (usually walking). And, here's a reminder to myself on why I REALLY need to do my strength training at least once a week... I have to remind myself that I have a very hard time maintaining my weight when I'm not keeping the muscle on. I tried the same thing before and ended up gaining fat.

I want to get some exercise 6 days a week, any way I can. I'm not going to be picky. I'm trying to keep the principles of Younger Next Year in mind: exercising enough to produce growth hormone 6 days a week keeps the body young.

When weight is over goal, I will go back on a 400 - 500 calorie deficit, while not eating less than 1200 calories, until I'm back at goal... I don't want to just eek by with a tiny deficit every day or I'll never meet my goals. I think the only way I'm going to reach my goal is if I keep my calories low, usually while exercising. I'm trying to keep that in focus!! Here's a recent revelation for me: "last night I allowed myself to suffer through the hunger, I was starved and couldn't sleep but I refused to give in. I knew it wouldn't kill me, and I was right!

I'm working on Day 8 of sane eating. I did a long bout of full body strength training with my TRX bands mostly, 1 exercise on my bow flex, and one on my exercise ball. I also spent a total of 30 minutes on my exercise bike, 10 minutes as a warm up prior to strength training, and 20 minutes after strength training for cardio. Today, I'm going "rock climbing" with a friend at a gym in town. It should be interesting, I don't expect to be able to do much; I have no experience with rock climbing, I'm hoping my friend can give me some tips. Either way, I expect to burn some calories today! WooHoo!

Thank you, Jol! I hope you're having a good time! emoticon

Hi Cassie, emoticon It's nice to see that you're handling these stressful holidays so well! I'm going to try to exercise again starting today and I'm hoping that helps keep my emotions more stable. It's tough for me to handle anxiety when I can't exercise!

I'm working on Day 3 of sane eating. This holiday has been very stressful because I was sick during the time I'd planned on preparing for my x-mas party. I had to spend every moment of my waking time off cleaning, decorating, and prepping food. I even had to set my alarm to get up early yesterday so I could get everything done. Then yesterday, DH's family came 1 hour early! I had to run upstairs and take my shower as soon as they arrived. Talk about stress! I'm glad it's all over now; we did have a good time, and I think our guests did, too. I have been logging my food and I have gotten deficits most of the time even though my body doesn't feel so good with the salty foods I've been eating.

Hello my steadfast friends and happy holidays!

I am well. Very happy Christmas Day is over. Its a big deadline. I managed moments of peace...which is what I wish the holiday was all about. The food and the presents are just such a nuisance as far as I am concerned.

So I am home the day after. My fridge is ready with nice leafy greens which I will cook up today. I plan to drink plenty of water and get in a walk.
I bought my daughter several dance Wii games and I plan on getting into those as well.

I think the best thing of all is that even though I am up a few pounds I am not totally stressed and berating myself. I've come to know that I have truly changed my fiber and even though I still get bingey I am not falling into an abyss of regaining all the weight I lost. And that is incredibly reassuring.

Always looking forward to the New Year I feel that my exercise working out not happening. I am tired at days end that I do accept as valid. But, I miss when I really really into working up a sweat and feeling my muscles ache in a good way.

I want to try to work my way back into more activity. I have been eye balling the fit bit. So perhaps getting one and shooting for the 10,000 steps per day will be my first. I always love seeing Boo's daily steps at facebook.

Then as the days grow longer and there is more warmth I can try to add more vigor and challenge.

Happy New Year. Thanks for always being here.

I finished 21 days of sane eating!

I'm starting another cycle, on Day 1 of sane eating. I had a bad day at home yesterday, stuff going wrong, so I had a couple of beers to try to relax and then went over on calories. I knew what I was doing, it wasn't insane eating. I also haven't gotten any formal exercise for several days and that doesn't help either.

New start, adjusted Deficit Tally ( I will take the bodybugg deficit and subtract 200 calories):
Sat 12/1: 64 calorie deficit, ate 1725 calories.
Sun 12/2: 451 calorie deficit, ate 1650 calories. Total= 515
Mon 12/3: 328 calorie deficit, ate 1337 calories. Total = 843
Tue 12/4: 497 calorie deficit, ate 1297 calories . Total= 1340
Wed 12/5: 527 calorie deficit, ate 1437 calories. Total = 1867
Thu 12/6: 453 calorie deficit, ate 1256 calories. Total = 2320.
Fri 12/7: 173 calorie deficit, ate 1414 calories. Total = 2493.
Sat 12/8: 226 calorie deficit, ate 1601calories. Total = 2719.
Sun12/9:325 calorie deficit, ate 1494 calories. Total = 3044.
Mon 12/10: 31 calorie SURPLUS, ate 1628 calories. Total = 3013.
Tue 12/11: 23 calorie deficit, ate 1665 calories. Total = 3036.
Wed 12/12: 140 calorie SURPLUS, ate 1799 calories. Total = 2896.
Thu 12/13: 331 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2263 calories. Total = 2565.
Fri 12/14: 315 calorie SURPLUS, ate 1814calories. Total = 2250.
Sat 12/15: 537 calorie deficit, ate 1475 calories. Total = 2787.
Sun 12/16: 574 calorie deficit, ate 1396 calories. Total = 3361.
Mon 12/17: 94 calorie deficit, ate 1635 calories. Total = 3455.
Tue 12/18: 208 calorie deficit, ate 1909 calories. Total = 3663.
Wed 12/19: 12 calorie deficit, ate 1813 calories. Total = 3675.
Thu 12/20: 413 calorie deficit, ate 1980 calories. Total = 4088.
Fri 12/21: 417 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2384 calories. Total = 3671.
Sat 12/22:
Sun 12/23:
Mon 12/24:

For my reference:
1 pound = 3, 500 calories
2 pounds = 7,000 calories
3 pounds= 10,500 calories
4 pounds= 14,000 calories
5 pounds= 17,500 calories
6 pounds= 21,000 calories
7 pounds= 24,500 calories
8 pounds=28,000 calories
9 pounds=31,500 calories
10 pounds= 35,000 calories

Completed! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Rewards still owed: I owe the piggy bank $130, myself a new song, and the groupon haircut, and 30 minutes sitting outside for completing my first 4DW back from the abyss.

New 4DW deficit goals: 500 adjusted calorie deficit daily, or alternatively 1200 calories (minimum).

References and Motivation- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I updated my "Other Goals" on SP to reflect my new program which includes 1 day of strength training per week, reducing my PT exercises to once a week, and 2 high-intensity exercise sessions per week. Also, low aerobic exercise during break at work (usually walking). And, here's a reminder to myself on why I REALLY need to do my strength training at least once a week... I have to remind myself that I have a very hard time maintaining my weight when I'm not keeping the muscle on. I tried the same thing before and ended up gaining fat.

I want to get some exercise 6 days a week, any way I can. I'm not going to be picky. I'm trying to keep the principles of Younger Next Year in mind: exercising enough to produce growth hormone 6 days a week keeps the body young.

When weight is over goal, I will go back on a 400 - 500 calorie deficit, while not eating less than 1200 calories, until I'm back at goal... I don't want to just eek by with a tiny deficit every day or I'll never meet my goals. I think the only way I'm going to reach my goal is if I keep my calories low, usually while exercising. I'm trying to keep that in focus!! Here's a recent revelation for me: "last night I allowed myself to suffer through the hunger, I was starved and couldn't sleep but I refused to give in. I knew it wouldn't kill me, and I was right!

Jol, I'll be thinking of you. Have a good time! I'll probably just start updating the same post every day, like the last time you went away.

I'm working on Day 21 of sane eating. Yesterday, I didn't stop moving because DH and I spend the day decorating and otherwise preparing for the x-mas gathering next week. Then, when we usually just sit and watch tv, we played ping-pong for about 30 minutes! I didn't get any formal exercise, but I burned plenty of calories! I have to work this weekend, and early morning schedule, so I expect a hard couple of days... I will be tired tomorrow from getting up at 5am, and probably no exercise from not taking a walking break.

New start, adjusted Deficit Tally ( I will take the bodybugg deficit and subtract 200 calories):
Sat 12/1: 64 calorie deficit, ate 1725 calories.
Sun 12/2: 451 calorie deficit, ate 1650 calories. Total= 515

Susan -- I'll be gone for two weeks after tomorrow. Will probably just lurk and not post. I'll be thinking of you! I hope you have a great time with your family. Kinda of like me having Thanksgiving, but no praying.... emoticon I actually find a lot of the Xmas stuff cheerful.

Will probably post tomorrow as my last post.

---in case you look back at yesterday's post... I obliterated it when I cut and pasted today. Most of the numbers are wrong.... today's post is right!

Thanks for the encouragement, Jol! I'm happy to be home for 2 days and I'm hoping that when I'm working this weekend, it'll be easy!

I'm working on Day 20 of sane eating. I didn't eat any more last night and I did get a 32 minute walk break, so I got a tiny deficit. I'll take it! For the next 2 days, DH and I are going to be preparing for the family get-together we're hosting on x-mas day. No, we're not believers, but it's not a religious holiday for us... It's not a worshipful gathering, just a fun time involving joke gifts and lots of food.

New start, adjusted Deficit Tally ( I will take the bodybugg deficit and subtract 200 calories):
Sat 12/1: 64 calorie deficit, ate 1725 calories.
Sun 12/2: 451 calorie deficit, ate 1650 calories. Total= 515
Mon 12/3: 328 calorie deficit, ate 1337 calories. Total = 843

Wed 12/5: 527 calorie deficit, ate 1437 calories. Total = 1867
Thu 12/6: 453 calorie deficit, ate 1256 calories. Total = 2320.

Sat 12/8: 226 calorie deficit, ate 1601calories. Total = 2719.
Sun12/9:325 calorie deficit, ate 1494 calories. Total = 3044.
Mon 12/10: 31 calorie SURPLUS, ate 1628 calories. Total = 3013.
Tue 12/11: 23 calorie deficit, ate 1665 calories. Total = 3036.
Wed 12/12: 140 calorie SURPLUS, ate 1799 calories. Total = 2896.

Rewards still owed: I owe the piggy bank $130, myself a new song, and the groupon haircut, and 30 minutes sitting outside for completing my first 4DW back from the abyss.

I updated my "Other Goals" on SP to reflect my new program which includes 1 day of strength training per week, reducing my PT exercises to once a week, and 2 high-intensity exercise sessions per week. Also, low aerobic exercise during break at work (usually walking). And, here's a reminder to myself on why I REALLY need to do my strength training at least once a week... I have to remind myself that I have a very hard time maintaining my weight when I'm not keeping the muscle on. I tried the same thing before and ended up gaining fat.

I want to get some exercise 6 days a week, any way I can. I'm not going to be picky. I'm trying to keep the principles of Younger Next Year in mind: exercising enough to produce growth hormone 6 days a week keeps the body young.

When weight is over goal, I will go back on a 400 - 500 calorie deficit, while not eating less than 1200 calories, until I'm back at goal... I don't want to just eek by with a tiny deficit every day or I'll never meet my goals. I think the only way I'm going to reach my goal is if I keep my calories low, usually while exercising. I'm trying to keep that in focus!! Here's a recent revelation for me: "last night I allowed myself to suffer through the hunger, I was starved and couldn't sleep but I refused to give in. I knew it wouldn't kill me, and I was right!

I'm working on Day 19 of sane eating. I did get a little exercise in yesterday. Unfortunately, my calf gave out at the end of my sprint intervals and I don't know how bad it is yet. I can't believe how much trouble I'm having with that calf! I did ok with my calories, but I was hoping to do better. Today, is a bad day, way too much stress at work and feeling dumped on, and eating too much. I'll see how it washes out later, but at this time I'm declaring that I will eat no more tonight!

Hey Jolie! I thought I posted after your hard day, but my parents come over an hour earlier than they were supposed to and I guess I never sent it. Then I had to work yesterday and it was too busy to do anything unrelated to work. I'm really sorry! I did write that I'm proud of you for the good behaviors you've acquired and that you were able to stop!

I'm working on Day 18 of sane eating. I did pretty good yesterday with calories, but I didn't get any exercise. Today, I have a doctor's appointment but I'm still hoping to get some exercise in.

I updated my "Other Goals" on SP to reflect my new program which includes 1 day of strength training per week, reducing my PT exercises to once a week, and 2 high-intensity exercise sessions per week. Also, low aerobic exercise during break at work (usually walking). And, here's a reminder to myself on why I REALLY need to do my strength training at least once a week... I have to remind myself that I have a very hard time maintaining my weight when I'm not keeping the muscle on. I tried the same thing before and ended up gaining fat.

I want to get some exercise 6 days a week, any way I can. I'm not going to be picky. I'm trying to keep the principles of Younger Next Year in mind: exercising enough to produce growth hormone 6 days a week keeps the body young.

When weight is over goal, I will go back on a 400 - 500 calorie deficit, while not eating less than 1200 calories, until I'm back at goal... I don't want to just eek by with a tiny deficit every day or I'll never meet my goals. I think the only way I'm going to reach my goal is if I keep my calories low, usually while exercising. I'm trying to keep that in focus!! Here's a recent revelation for me: "last night I allowed myself to suffer through the hunger, I was starved and couldn't sleep but I refused to give in. I knew it wouldn't kill me, and I was right!

Hey Susan -- glad you're better! (I'm so caught up in myself sometimes -- I didn't mention in my last message). I hope we can Skype again soon. Maybe in January?

Hi Susan.... well I had a hard day yesterday. Here's the story...( a little cut and past from my binge-free team)

I had a binge. It was definitely a binge because I followed an old pattern: I did so many things right this week, then I blew it today by eating about 2000 calories for lunch and almost didn't want to quit. This week I followed my NoS regime and didn't eat sweets or eat in between meals. I did pretty well, although I ate too much Thanksgiving leftovers at each meal. Yes, one plate, and not overly full, but it was building up in my mind that I was "obsessed" with these Thanksgiving leftovers. But that would have been okay. The great things I did were to get rid of the eggnog Monday (down the drain), and I did eat at meals and ate relatively decent calories each day.

Then I had signed up for a "Cookie Swap" with my group that meets every month. Why would I do that? Because I'm so tired of always being "different" because of dieting. Even though it is dangerous. (I have dieted since the age of 7 or 8, and I'm tired of passing up the pleasures of life.) Well, I did great!!! I was going to bake and at the last minute decided to buy my cookies at a bakery because I didn't want to venture into the batter... at least this year. So I bought my cookies, went to the party and had a blast! I didn't eat any because it is was a weekday and I don't eat sweets, but I still brought them home. Those were great actions on my part. Attended the party, brought cookies to try on the weekend, and didn't eat them during the week.

Saturday, I can have sweets, so I tried a little of each kind of cookie for breakfast. Not horrible intake.... Then I posted on another message board that I was not going to eat anymore desserts today. I went off to help at the Food Bank and worked hard, felt good, then came home. I even took the rest of the cookies to give away. I wanted to get rid of them. Good action on my part!! BUT, BUT... they didn't eat them all. I thought of throwing away the remaining, but I didn't. (That was the first mistake...) Came home, and I had my lunch of non desserts.... then BOOM!!! I finished the rest of the cookies, the last piece of pumpkin pie, and some other stuff, all in about 30 minutes. I kept saying, "this" is the last, but it wasn't. Until I dragged myself to the computer to commit to stop.

Lots of good actions mixed in.... Good action on my part to stop it at that point. I also didn't purge, like I really wanted to.

But this was so much a binge, since it was primarily sugar, bad feelings, snowballing... BUT YES, I'm proud I'm out of it now. Thanks to SP groups and what I've learned.

For me I have learned to be careful not to be punitive with myself.

I do get a little depressed because I do so well for binge-free cycle after binge-free cycle... but there's a part of me that's STILL not committed to losing weight.

One of the things we learn on this team is how to recover gracefully from a binge when/if it occurs. For me that is to "stop" it quickly and then to start Day #1 immediately. I do not associate any failure with starting Day #1 even after reaching 19 days. So what if I don't do 21 this cycle? (I know that defeats the purpose of the "goal" of 21, but it helps with minimizing damage.)

I can't say I love myself right now, but I did clearly say to myself: "What can you do to get this off your mind now? Play the piano? Listen to music?" That is progress... I no longer want to wallow in the after effects...

Needless to say I obliterated about 0.5 lbs from my deficit, but hey, not all!! not all!!!

I'm working on Day 15 of sane eating. I think I'm starting to feel better already. Unfortunately, I didn't plan my calories out well last night and even through I thought I cut back (I did), I expended less calories than I did yesterday. Tonight will be better since DH is going to be at work, and in a day or 2 I'll be back at the exercise!

New start, adjusted Deficit Tally ( I will take the bodybugg deficit and subtract 200 calories):
Sat 12/1: 64 calorie deficit, ate 1725 calories.
Sun 12/2: 451 calorie deficit, ate 1650 calories. Total= 515
Mon 12/3: 328 calorie deficit, ate 1337 calories. Total = 843
Tue 12/4: 497 calorie deficit, ate 1297 calories . Total= 1340
Wed 12/5: 527 calorie deficit, ate 1437 calories. Total = 1867
Thu 12/6: 453 calorie deficit, ate 1256 calories. Total = 2320.
Fri 12/7: 173 calorie deficit, ate 1414 calories. Total = 2493.
Sat 12/8: 226 calorie deficit, ate 1601calories. Total = 2719.
Sun12/9:325 calorie deficit, ate 1494 calories. Total = 3044.
Mon 12/10: 31 calorie SURPLUS, ate 1628 calories. Total = 3013.
Tue 12/13: 23 calorie deficit, ate 1665 calories. Total = 3036.
Wed 12/14: 140 calorie SURPLUS, ate 1799 calories. Total = 2896.
Thu 12/15: 331 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2263 calories. Total = 2565.
Fri 12/16: 315 calorie SURPLUS, ate 1814calories. Total = 2250.

For my reference:
1 pound = 3, 500 calories
2 pounds = 7,000 calories
3 pounds= 10,500 calories
4 pounds= 14,000 calories
5 pounds= 17,500 calories
6 pounds= 21,000 calories
7 pounds= 24,500 calories
8 pounds=28,000 calories
9 pounds=31,500 calories
10 pounds= 35,000 calories

Completed! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Rewards still owed: I owe the piggy bank $130, myself a new song, and the groupon haircut, and 30 minutes sitting outside for completing my first 4DW back from the abyss.

New 4DW deficit goals: 500 adjusted calorie deficit daily, or alternatively 1200 calories (minimum).

I updated my "Other Goals" on SP to reflect my new program which includes 1 day of strength training per week, reducing my PT exercises to once a week, and 2 high-intensity exercise sessions per week. Also, low aerobic exercise during break at work (usually walking). And, here's a reminder to myself on why I REALLY need to do my strength training at least once a week... I have to remind myself that I have a very hard time maintaining my weight when I'm not keeping the muscle on. I tried the same thing before and ended up gaining fat.

I want to get some exercise 6 days a week, any way I can. I'm not going to be picky. I'm trying to keep the principles of Younger Next Year in mind: exercising enough to produce growth hormone 6 days a week keeps the body young.

When weight is over goal, I will go back on a 400 - 500 calorie deficit, while not eating less than 1200 calories, until I'm back at goal... I don't want to just eek by with a tiny deficit every day or I'll never meet my goals. I think the only way I'm going to reach my goal is if I keep my calories low, usually while exercising. I'm trying to keep that in focus!! Here's a recent revelation for me: "last night I allowed myself to suffer through the hunger, I was starved and couldn't sleep but I refused to give in. I knew it wouldn't kill me, and I was right!

Jol, the important thing is that you did hit the 2 pound mark and you're still hovering close by! emoticon

I'm working on Day 14 of sane eating. I'm still not feeling well but it's only 24 hours since I started the antibiotics. I'm ready to feel better! I think I need to eat more calories at dinner time so that I eat less junk with DH when snacking later on. Yesterday, I ate 700 calories of junk after dinner because I was so hungry!

New start, adjusted Deficit Tally ( I will take the bodybugg deficit and subtract 200 calories):
Sat 12/1: 64 calorie deficit, ate 1725 calories.
Sun 12/2: 451 calorie deficit, ate 1650 calories. Total= 515
Mon 12/3: 328 calorie deficit, ate 1337 calories. Total = 843
Tue 12/4: 497 calorie deficit, ate 1297 calories . Total= 1340
Wed 12/5: 527 calorie deficit, ate 1437 calories. Total = 1867
Thu 12/6: 453 calorie deficit, ate 1256 calories. Total = 2320.
Fri 12/7: 173 calorie deficit, ate 1414 calories. Total = 2493.
Sat 12/8: 226 calorie deficit, ate 1601calories. Total = 2719.
Sun12/9:325 calorie deficit, ate 1494 calories. Total = 3044.
Mon 12/10: 31 calorie SURPLUS, ate 1628 calories. Total = 3013.
Tue 12/13: 23 calorie deficit, ate 1665 calories. Total = 3036.
Wed 12/14: 140 calorie SURPLUS, ate 1799 calories. Total = 2896.
Thu 12/15: 331 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2263 calories. Total = 2565.
Fri 12/16:

For my reference:
1 pound = 3, 500 calories
2 pounds = 7,000 calories
3 pounds= 10,500 calories
4 pounds= 14,000 calories
5 pounds= 17,500 calories
6 pounds= 21,000 calories
7 pounds= 24,500 calories
8 pounds=28,000 calories
9 pounds=31,500 calories
10 pounds= 35,000 calories

Rewards still owed: I owe the piggy bank $130, myself a new song, and the groupon haircut, and 30 minutes sitting outside for completing my first 4DW back from the abyss.

New 4DW deficit goals: 500 adjusted calorie deficit daily, or alternatively 1200 calories (minimum).

I updated my "Other Goals" on SP to reflect my new program which includes 1 day of strength training per week, reducing my PT exercises to once a week, and 2 high-intensity exercise sessions per week. Also, low aerobic exercise during break at work (usually walking). And, here's a reminder to myself on why I REALLY need to do my strength training at least once a week... I have to remind myself that I have a very hard time maintaining my weight when I'm not keeping the muscle on. I tried the same thing before and ended up gaining fat.

I want to get some exercise 6 days a week, any way I can. I'm not going to be picky. I'm trying to keep the principles of Younger Next Year in mind: exercising enough to produce growth hormone 6 days a week keeps the body young.

When weight is over goal, I will go back on a 400 - 500 calorie deficit, while not eating less than 1200 calories, until I'm back at goal... I don't want to just eek by with a tiny deficit every day or I'll never meet my goals. I think the only way I'm going to reach my goal is if I keep my calories low, usually while exercising. I'm trying to keep that in focus!! Here's a recent revelation for me: "last night I allowed myself to suffer through the hunger, I was starved and couldn't sleep but I refused to give in. I knew it wouldn't kill me, and I was right!

Way to go on 2 pounds lost, Jol!! emoticon

I'm working on Day 13 of sane eating, and day 6 of being sick! I finally went to the doctor today, and got some antibiotics, so I suspect I'll be better within 3 days! Just in time for my parents visit on Sunday. They were supposed to visit last Sunday, but I cancelled because I didn't want them to get this bug! I was going to have a low calorie day yesterday, but I ended up so hungry that I decided to eat more... Under my old system, I'd have a 60 calorie deficit, but my adjusted calories put me at a 140 calorie surplus. I think it's been a week since I've gotten any exercise, I'm really looking forward to hitting it again!

New start, adjusted Deficit Tally ( I will take the bodybugg deficit and subtract 200 calories):

I want to get some exercise 6 days a week, any way I can. I'm not going to be picky. I'm trying to keep the principles of Younger Next Year in mind: exercising enough to produce growth hormone 6 days a week keeps the body young.

When weight is over goal, I will go back on a 400 - 500 calorie deficit, while not eating less than 1200 calories, until I'm back at goal... I don't want to just eek by with a tiny deficit every day or I'll never meet my goals. I think the only way I'm going to reach my goal is if I keep my calories low, usually while exercising. I'm trying to keep that in focus!! Here's a recent revelation for me: "last night I allowed myself to suffer through the hunger, I was starved and couldn't sleep but I refused to give in. I knew it wouldn't kill me, and I was right!

Hi Doc! It's nice to see your update. I really understand not getting up earlier to exercise because of desperately needing sleep because I feel that way all of the time! I have to exercise on my days off because of that. DH and I like to go snowboarding, too, and have plans for this winter. It's been a few years, so I can't wait! And, what a great way to burn calories!

I'm working on Day 11 of sane eating, and day 4 of being sick! I was so inactive and sick yesterday that I ended up with a small surplus of (adjusted) calories.

New start, adjusted Deficit Tally ( I will take the bodybugg deficit and subtract 200 calories):
Sat 12/1: 64 calorie deficit, ate 1725 calories.
Sun 12/2: 451 calorie deficit, ate 1650 calories. Total= 515
Mon 12/3: 328 calorie deficit, ate 1337 calories. Total = 843
Tue 12/4: 497 calorie deficit, ate 1297 calories . Total= 1340
Wed 12/5: 527 calorie deficit, ate 1437 calories. Total = 1867
Thu 12/6: 453 calorie deficit, ate 1256 calories. Total = 2320.
Fri 12/7: 173 calorie deficit, ate 1414 calories. Total = 2493.
Sat 12/8: 226 calorie deficit, ate 1601calories. Total = 2719.
Sun12/9:325 calorie deficit, ate 1494 calories. Total = 3044.
Mon 12/10: 31 calorie SURPLUS, ate 1628 calories. Total = 3013.
Tue 12/13:
Wed 12/14:
Thu 12/15:
Fri 12/16:

For my reference:
1 pound = 3, 500 calories
2 pounds = 7,000 calories
3 pounds= 10,500 calories
4 pounds= 14,000 calories
5 pounds= 17,500 calories
6 pounds= 21,000 calories
7 pounds= 24,500 calories
8 pounds=28,000 calories
9 pounds=31,500 calories
10 pounds= 35,000 calories

Rewards still owed: I owe the piggy bank $130, myself a new song, and the groupon haircut, and 30 minutes sitting outside for completing my first 4DW back from the abyss.

New 4DW deficit goals: 500 adjusted calorie deficit daily, or alternatively 1200 calories (minimum).

I updated my "Other Goals" on SP to reflect my new program which includes 1 day of strength training per week, reducing my PT exercises to once a week, and 2 high-intensity exercise sessions per week. Also, low aerobic exercise during break at work (usually walking). And, here's a reminder to myself on why I REALLY need to do my strength training at least once a week... I have to remind myself that I have a very hard time maintaining my weight when I'm not keeping the muscle on. I tried the same thing before and ended up gaining fat.

Hi MommyDoc -- I know how time flies, so it's good to hear from you!

Even though I've tracked most of the time this year and exercised sufficiently, I have really stayed the same. Frustrating, but I have made major strides in being binge-free (and purge-free), and the NoS Diet is working really well for me in terms of moderating the amount of desserts I consume. I feel more comfortable with food and enjoying it in moderation. I'm still enjoying sweets, but only 2 days a week.

Weight loss seems to be on the horizon all the time, but not there yet!!! I know this is frustrating to my nutritionist, as well as to me, but again, I think getting comfortable with food has been extremely important!

Hi Jolie, Susan, Cassie!

I am working so so much and exercising hardly at all. Thing 1 and I are learning to snowboard this winter. Last weekend was our second day out, and our first formal lessons of the season. I am sore all over, it feels great. I logged in today to find some recommended training exercises, and did the core routine tonight (2 sets instead of 3 tho).

I have trouble resisting treats that are around. And did I mention I work too much? I haven't weighed myself in ages but my pants are tight. It is frustrating. I seriously do not have time to log food and usually sleep seems desperately needed so I don't get up to work out. I will try doing 20 min in the evenings like I did tonight and see how that goes.

Back when I lived on this message board and planned meals and exercised every day to lose weight for my surgery, I was wearing skinny pants and felt great. Now I feel more lumpy but everywhere I look I see barriers to success. My new motivator is that I am so excited about snowboarding, I spend all week looking at the mountains and thinking about snow. I made a lot of progress last weekend and I know I'll be taking the chairlift and linking turns down some easy slopes pretty soon, hopefully before the end of the year. So this is motivating to improve my strength. Of course I don't want to lose too much of my natural padding - I fall ALL THE TIME and usually it's on my hips and rear end.

Hugs to all - not making any promises about being back here soon - but thinking of you and wishing you success.

Yesterday was our Thanksgiving and I did overeat, to the tune of about 1000 calories. But I didn't feel like I binged, and surprisingly I forgot how many steps and exercise one gets when you stand up all day. (I actually had some back ache this morning from it - damn!!) Of course I'm so glad that I've been doing resistance exercises to strengthen my lower back, because it could have been worse. Before it's been debilitating, but today it's just sore.

So onward ho!!!

I'm working on Day 10 of sane eating! I must have overdone it yesterday and been too active because I had the worst night ever, sleepless and miserable. I had stuff that I wanted to do today but it's looking like I can't do it since I'm not functioning. Ugh! For now, I'm not doing any 4DW's, I'm just going to log my deficits because I feel silly having a 500 calorie deficit goal and not making it. I'm not getting any exercise while I'm sick, and I don't want to cut my calories so drastically right now.

I realized that I ate a mini-powdered donut on Saturday that I didn't log, so I just adjusted my calories.

New start, adjusted Deficit Tally ( I will take the bodybugg deficit and subtract 200 calories):
Sat 12/1: 64 calorie deficit, ate 1725 calories.
Sun 12/2: 451 calorie deficit, ate 1650 calories. Total= 515
Mon 12/3: 328 calorie deficit, ate 1337 calories. Total = 843
Tue 12/4: 497 calorie deficit, ate 1297 calories . Total= 1340
Wed 12/5: 527 calorie deficit, ate 1437 calories. Total = 1867
Thu 12/6: 453 calorie deficit, ate 1256 calories. Total = 2320.
Fri 12/7: 173 calorie deficit, ate 1414 calories. Total = 2493.
Sat 12/8: 226 calorie deficit, ate 1601calories. Total = 2719.

I updated my "Other Goals" on SP to reflect my new program which includes 1 day of strength training per week, reducing my PT exercises to once a week, and 2 high-intensity exercise sessions per week. Also, low aerobic exercise during break at work (usually walking). And, here's a reminder to myself on why I REALLY need to do my strength training at least once a week... I have to remind myself that I have a very hard time maintaining my weight when I'm not keeping the muscle on. I tried the same thing before and ended up gaining fat.

I want to get some exercise 6 days a week, any way I can. I'm not going to be picky. I'm trying to keep the principles of Younger Next Year in mind: exercising enough to produce growth hormone 6 days a week keeps the body young.

When weight is over goal, I will go back on a 400 - 500 calorie deficit, while not eating less than 1200 calories, until I'm back at goal... I don't want to just eek by with a tiny deficit every day or I'll never meet my goals. I think the only way I'm going to reach my goal is if I keep my calories low, usually while exercising. I'm trying to keep that in focus!! Here's a recent revelation for me: "last night I allowed myself to suffer through the hunger, I was starved and couldn't sleep but I refused to give in. I knew it wouldn't kill me, and I was right!

I'm working on Day 8 of sane eating! I'm still sick and it's starting to look like it's going to last at least a week. I've made all the arrangements for the bird club tomorrow so I'm good with it now. My deficits are going to suffer now, but on the plus side, my weight is way down from last week, very close to 5 pounds, proving that most of the weight was just bloat! I'm still going to try to get deficits every day and consider it a success if I do.

I'm working on Day 7 of sane eating! I am sick today, I called in last night while I was still at work. My lucky co-workers have a great chance at staying well since I'm staying home! DH thought he was getting better last night (his 4th day with the bug), but then felt sick again later on. I'm trying to kick it out with saline nasal douches and gargling with salt water. I'm worried that I won't be able to make it to the big party the bird club is having on Sunday. It's supposed to be the last meeting with me as it's president. I've already warned the members that if someone doesn't step up, there will be no club next year. I'm going to be a little bit lenient on myself with my 4DW since I've got an infection; I think I need a few more calories to fight it off.

I updated my weight, which was from last Saturday's weigh-in, and I'll weigh-in again tomorrow at the same time. If you look at the numbers, I won't have lost a pound yet, but I believe a lot of that weight was just bloat. We'll see tomorrow.

I'm working on Day 6 of sane eating! I got good exercise yesterday, bicycling for 45 minutes at home, then a 20 minute walk at work! It feels good to move! Today is a long day, luckily I've managed to get a 30 minute walk in already! Unluckily, I think I'm coming down with something. I'll have to see... sometimes if I rest well when I'm starting to feel iffy, I don't end up getting sick.

New start, adjusted Deficit Tally ( I will take the bodybugg deficit and subtract 200 calories):

I updated my "Other Goals" on SP to reflect my new program which includes 1 day of strength training per week, reducing my PT exercises to once a week, and 2 high-intensity exercise sessions per week. Also, low aerobic exercise during break at work (usually walking). And, here's a reminder to myself on why I REALLY need to do my strength training at least once a week... I have to remind myself that I have a very hard time maintaining my weight when I'm not keeping the muscle on. I tried the same thing before and ended up gaining fat.

I want to get some exercise 6 days a week, any way I can. I'm not going to be picky. I'm trying to keep the principles of Younger Next Year in mind: exercising enough to produce growth hormone 6 days a week keeps the body young.

When weight is over goal, I will go back on a 400 - 500 calorie deficit, while not eating less than 1200 calories, until I'm back at goal... I don't want to just eek by with a tiny deficit every day or I'll never meet my goals. I think the only way I'm going to reach my goal is if I keep my calories low, usually while exercising. I'm trying to keep that in focus!! Here's a recent revelation for me: "last night I allowed myself to suffer through the hunger, I was starved and couldn't sleep but I refused to give in. I knew it wouldn't kill me, and I was right!

Hi Cassie! It's nice to see you here again!

I'm working on Day 5 of sane eating! It turned out that my display of the bodybugg calories expended was dead on (the other day), nice that I didn't have to update the calories. Yesterday, DH and I ran a lot of errands and I didn't end up posting here, but I had a pretty good day. I didn't exercise yesterday, but I kept my food calories low. Today, I hope to get some exercise before I go in to work (I have a shorter shift today and don't have to go in until 2:30).

New start, adjusted Deficit Tally ( I will take the bodybugg deficit and subtract 200 calories):
Sat 12/1: 64 calorie deficit, ate 1725 calories.
Sun 12/2: 451 calorie deficit, ate 1650 calories. Total= 515
Mon 12/3: 328 calorie deficit, ate 1337 calories. Total = 843
Tue 12/4: 497 calorie deficit, ate 1297 calories . Total= 1340
Wed 12/5:
Thu 12/6:
Fri 12/7:

For my reference:
1 pound = 3, 500 calories
2 pounds = 7,000 calories
3 pounds= 10,500 calories
4 pounds= 14,000 calories
5 pounds= 17,500 calories
6 pounds= 21,000 calories
7 pounds= 24,500 calories
8 pounds=28,000 calories
9 pounds=31,500 calories
10 pounds= 35,000 calories

Hi Friends,

Can't believe its the last month of the year! My goal is to relose the 5 lbs I have regained since the start of the school year...ugh! But, I feel I want to be at the lowest weight I achieved since the start of 2012. That will mean I lost 20 lbs this year...and that's something I am quite proud of. This time last year I was 15 pounds heavier and my smallest jeans did not fit me..now they are fine.

Its such a slippery slope. Luckily I am generally not so hard on myself about my eating.

Anyhoo..that's it for now. Work is still making me bonkers...but I am going to try not to act out my feelings with food.

Got to run.

I'm working on Day 3 of sane eating! I'm at work today and I'm starting to feel a little sick. DH came home from work last night, sick. It remains to be seen, whether I've gotten whatever he has. I'm using data for yesterday's deficit that may be a little off because I didn't upload my calories this morning. I'm putting my calories in using my display which is usually close, but never exact. I've decided that I'm not renewing my bodybugg subscription next year and I'm going to try the fitbit. I'm looking forward to the change!

New start, adjusted Deficit Tally ( I will take the bodybugg deficit and subtract 200 calories):

I'm working on Day 2 of sane eating! I'm unable to run (again), this time it's because I injured my calf muscle and running really hurts. I'm hoping that I'll be back at the running in 2 weeks. So today, a friend came over and we walked. She had to leave and I finished my walk alone, then decided I needed something more aerobic so I bicycled for a while. It doesn't burn anywhere near as much as running does, but I take what I can get!

New start, adjusted Deficit Tally ( I will take the bodybugg deficit and subtract 200 calories):
Sat 12/1: 64 calorie deficit, ate 1725 calories.
Sun 12/2:
Mon 12/3:
Tue 12/4:
Wed 12/5:
Thu 12/6:
Fri 12/7:

For my reference:
1 pound = 3, 500 calories
2 pounds = 7,000 calories
3 pounds= 10,500 calories
4 pounds= 14,000 calories
5 pounds= 17,500 calories
6 pounds= 21,000 calories
7 pounds= 24,500 calories
8 pounds=28,000 calories
9 pounds=31,500 calories
10 pounds= 35,000 calories

New 4DW deficit goals:
Sat goal is 0 calorie adjusted deficit: 64 calorie deficit emoticon
Sun goal is 200 calorie adjusted deficit:
Mon goal is 400 calorie adjusted deficit:
Tue goal is 500 calorie adjusted deficit:
*Adjusted calorie deficit means that my bodybugg deficit will be 200 calories more.
Daily reward is to post my victory here, 4 day reward is to sit outside for 30 minutes.

Completed! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Rewards still owed: I owe the piggy bank $120, myself a new song, and the groupon haircut.

References and Motivation:

I updated my "Other Goals" on SP to reflect my new program which includes 1 day of strength training per week, reducing my PT exercises to once a week, and 2 high-intensity exercise sessions per week. Also, low aerobic exercise during break at work (usually walking). And, here's a reminder to myself on why I REALLY need to do my strength training at least once a week... I have to remind myself that I have a very hard time maintaining my weight when I'm not keeping the muscle on. I tried the same thing before and ended up gaining fat.

I want to get some exercise 6 days a week, any way I can. I'm not going to be picky. I'm trying to keep the principles of Younger Next Year in mind: exercising enough to produce growth hormone 6 days a week keeps the body young.

When weight is over goal, I will go back on a 400 - 500 calorie deficit, while not eating less than 1200 calories, until I'm back at goal... I don't want to just eek by with a tiny deficit every day or I'll never meet my goals. I think the only way I'm going to reach my goal is if I keep my calories low, usually while exercising. I'm trying to keep that in focus!! Here's a recent revelation for me: "last night I allowed myself to suffer through the hunger, I was starved and couldn't sleep but I refused to give in. I knew it wouldn't kill me, and I was right!

Yes, I can see how great you're doing! I'm not ready to jump on the gluten-free diet though I have thought about it before. It is a possibility for the future though, we'll see! I have looked at BookWorm's blogs before and I think she's amazing!

Btw, I edited this morning's post, added a new 4 DW and some comments...

Hello, friend!!! No, it's next Sunday, Dec 9. For some reason, I've been doing great lately. I'm so grateful for your support. I've also jumped (a little) on the gluten-free bandwagon during the week. Not fanatically, but have cut out a lot. It does seem to make me feel better, and my weight is slowly coming down.... Slowly... slowly....!!!

I don't know if you have ever read BookWorm27's blogs, but she has lost over 100 pounds and is keeping it off. Recently she's had some challenges, but now she's getting back to maintenance. She is pretty fanatical, and her goal weight is awfully low, but I admire her scientific approach. She's the one who started losing again after giving up most gluten, so thought I'd give it a try.

Happy Thanksgiving, Jol! Is today your dinner?

Well, I'm back! I'm sure I'm a few pounds heavier, at least that's how I feel, I haven't gotten on the scale yet. I have been making no effort to keep my weight down, knowing that I'd be back on board soon enough. Aside from the first 2 days, I've been getting my water, veggies, and usually my exercise every day.

I'm working on Day 1 of sane eating! Today, I'm just going to try to break even (or better) which means having a 200 calorie deficit on the bodybugg site. I'm adjusting my deficit calories since I'm sure that it's wrong!

Hi Jol and Cassie! Jol, I'm glad you had a wonderful trip! I didn't know you were going to Poland, it sounds interesting! Cassie, I'm glad you came back to say hi!

I didn't get any notification that anyone posted, so I didn't bother to come say hi. I'm off my plan for the time being, I just gave up after going to my brother's house on Saturday. My parents talked me into taking an apple pie home, my cousin pretty much made me take a good amount of her cheesecake home... I'm going to wait until it's all gone to start up again. DH will not help me eat it, and no, I won't throw it away! I'll probably be back on my plan on Saturday. I'm going to be starting from nothing, and taking 200 calories off my bodybugg reading for calories expended since it's obviously wrong...

I'm back! I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. I did really well on my trip to Poland. Certainly ate well, but I had two no dessert days in between and I walked a lot. It was really a lovely place and lots of history. I had to see it to remember what the Poles sufferedduring World War II. Warsaw was completely ruined. Today it is a beautiful city again with a lot of charm. Krakow was also charming, but of course one has to see Auschwitz, which is sense-numbing. I actually could feel the presence of all those victims, even though, of course, I don't believe in ghosts.

We will have our Thanksgiving the first weekend in December, so I still have that to anticipate.

-------------
Starting over on everything, although amazingly, I had an overall deficit during my trip!! I'm going for 17500 calorie deficit and am going to start with my accumulated total, including the trip...

There will be another vacation end of the year, but in the meantime, I'll pretend like it isn't coming!!!

Hi Friends,

Happy thanksgiving. I hope you all enjoyed the day and feasting.

I had a wonderful time at my 35th High School Reunion. I've been in a bit of a crash since after the the joy of the night. I also had a deadling at work which I shamelessly binged through.

I am trying not to be too hard on myself. Taking it one step at a time. I've had some wonderful autumn walks...the weather has been perfect.

Thankful you guys are always here.

Can't beleive we are winding down yet another year!

I'm working on Day 11 of sane eating!

I'm taking a break from 4DW's for now, I'll just be logging my deficits and calories eaten.

Daily deficit and totals: Starting over from the day I started my 10% junk food diet on 9/25/12. (Junk food restriction ended on 11/8/12). May go back to it at some point...
Thu: 11/1/ 415 calorie deficit, ate 2295 calories. Total deficit is 10,710. 3 pounds!
Sun:11/4 367 calorie deficit, ate 2303 calories. Total deficit is 11,162.
Mon: 11/5 500 calorie deficit, ate 1602 calories. Total deficit is 11,662
Tue: 11/6 370 calorie deficit, ate 1708 calories. Total deficit is 12,032.
Wed: 11/7 112 calorie deficit, ate 2010 calories. Total deficit is 12,144.
Thu: 11/8 156 calorie deficit, ate 2486 calories. Total deficit is 12,300.
Fri: 11/9 132 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2686 calories. Total deficit is 12,168.
Sat: 11/10 35 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2404 calories. Total deficit is 12,133.
Sun: 11/11 868 calorie SURPLUS, ate 3125 calories. Total deficit is 11,265.
Mon: 11/12 377 calorie deficit, ate 1930 calories. Total deficit is 11,642.
Tue: 11/13 154 calorie deficit, ate 1789 calories. Total deficit is 11,796.
Wed: 11/14 678 calorie deficit, ate 1810 calories. Total deficit is 12,474.
Thu: 11/15 164 calorie deficit, ate 1577 calories. Total deficit is 12,638.
Fri:11/16 201 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2238 calories. Total deficit is12,437
Sat: 11/17 622 calorie deficit, ate 1766 calories. Total deficit is 13,059.
Sun: 11/18 575 calorie deficit, ate 2146 calories. Total deficit is 13,634.
Mon: 11/19 23 calorie deficit, ate 2213 calories. Total deficit is 13,657.
Tue: 11/20 471 calorie deficit, ate 2176 calories. Total deficit is 14,128. 4 pounds!
Wed: 11/21 114 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2135 calories. Total deficit is 14,014.
For my reference:
4 pounds= 14,000 calories
5 pounds= 17,500 calories
6 pounds= 21,000 calories
7 pounds= 24,500 calories
8 pounds=28,000 calories
9 pounds=31,500 calories
10 pounds= 35,000 calories

I updated my "Other Goals" on SP to reflect my new program which includes 1 day of strength training per week, reducing my PT exercises to once a week, and 2 high-intensity exercise sessions per week. Also, low aerobic exercise during break at work (usually walking). And, here's a reminder to myself on why I REALLY need to do my strength training at least once a week... I have to remind myself that I have a very hard time maintaining my weight when I'm not keeping the muscle on. I tried the same thing before and ended up gaining fat.

I want to get some exercise 6 days a week, any way I can. I'm not going to be picky. I'm trying to keep the principles of Younger Next Year in mind: exercising enough to produce growth hormone 6 days a week keeps the body young.

Completed! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Rewards owed: I've decided that I'm going to put money in my "piggy bank", it always makes me feel good to do that. I owe the piggy bank $120, myself a new song, and the groupon haircut. Now I need to pick a prize for sticking to 10% junk diet for my 4th and 5th weeks.

When weight is over goal, I will go back on a 400 - 500 calorie deficit, while not eating less than 1200 calories, until I'm back at goal... I don't want to just eek by with a tiny deficit every day or I'll never meet my goals. I think the only way I'm going to reach my goal is if I keep my calories low, usually while exercising. I'm trying to keep that in focus!! Here's a recent revelation for me: "last night I allowed myself to suffer through the hunger, I was starved and couldn't sleep but I refused to give in. I knew it wouldn't kill me, and I was right!

I'm working on Day 4 of sane eating!

A movie and dinner out yesterday went pretty well. I got a piece of carrot cake with ice cream, brought 2/3rds of the cake home, ate all of the ice cream, and stayed in my calorie range! It helped that I had a light lunch before the movie, and went for a nice long run/walk earlier in the day, I couldn't have had much of a deficit without it.

Daily deficit and totals: Starting over from the day I started my 10% junk food diet on 9/25/12. (Junk food restriction ended on 11/8/12). May go back to it at some point...
Thu: 11/1/ 415 calorie deficit, ate 2295 calories. Total deficit is 10,710. 3 pounds!
Sun:11/4 367 calorie deficit, ate 2303 calories. Total deficit is 11,162.
Mon: 11/5 500 calorie deficit, ate 1602 calories. Total deficit is 11,662
Tue: 11/6 370 calorie deficit, ate 1708 calories. Total deficit is 12,032.
Wed: 11/7 112 calorie deficit, ate 2010 calories. Total deficit is 12,144.
Thu: 11/8 156 calorie deficit, ate 2486 calories. Total deficit is 12,300.
Fri: 11/9 132 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2686 calories. Total deficit is 12,168.
Sat: 11/10 35 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2404 calories. Total deficit is 12,133.
Sun: 11/11 868 calorie SURPLUS, ate 3125 calories. Total deficit is 11,265.
Mon: 11/12 377 calorie deficit, ate 1930 calories. Total deficit is 11,642.
Tue: 11/13 154 calorie deficit, ate 1789 calories. Total deficit is 11,796.
Wed: 11/14 678 calorie deficit, ate 1810 calories. Total deficit is 12,474.

8 pounds=28,000 calories

I updated my "Other Goals" on SP to reflect my new program which includes 1 day of strength training per week, reducing my PT exercises to once a week, and 2 high-intensity exercise sessions per week. Also, low aerobic exercise during break at work (usually walking). And, here's a reminder to myself on why I REALLY need to do my strength training at least once a week... I have to remind myself that I have a very hard time maintaining my weight when I'm not keeping the muscle on. I tried the same thing before and ended up gaining fat.

I want to get some exercise 6 days a week, any way I can. I'm not going to be picky. I'm trying to keep the principles of Younger Next Year in mind: exercising enough to produce growth hormone 6 days a week keeps the body young.

Completed! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Rewards owed: I've decided that I'm going to put money in my "piggy bank", it always makes me feel good to do that. I owe the piggy bank $100, myself a new song, and the groupon haircut. Now I need to pick a prize for sticking to 10% junk diet for my 4th and 5th weeks.

When weight is over goal, I will go back on a 400 - 500 calorie deficit, while not eating less than 1200 calories, until I'm back at goal... I don't want to just eek by with a tiny deficit every day or I'll never meet my goals. I think the only way I'm going to reach my goal is if I keep my calories low, usually while exercising. I'm trying to keep that in focus!! Here's a recent revelation for me: "last night I allowed myself to suffer through the hunger, I was starved and couldn't sleep but I refused to give in. I knew it wouldn't kill me, and I was right!

I had a good day yesterday at work; I came home a little hungry and had a small healthy snack. I got a pretty small deficit, but I'm okay with that. Today, DH and I are planning on going to a movie and out to eat, so I need to keep my calories light at home...

I'm working on Day 2 of sane eating!

I feel pretty good today, although my stomach still doesn't feel normal. I'm back at work after having 5 days off. I'm not sure why, but my time off was counterproductive for my food and exercise plan... I'm glad I've given up on the 10% junk food plan, and I'm going back to pure calories, just getting deficits. I don't think keeping my junk food down affected my weight at all. Maybe I need to do it for a longer period of time, but I don't want to do it right now! For now, I'm going to start a REALLY EASY 4DW to keep my junk calories under 501 daily :).

Daily deficit and totals: Starting over from the day I started my 10% junk food diet on 9/25/12.
(Junk food restriction ended on 11/8/12). May go back to it at some point...

Thu: 11/1/ 415 calorie deficit, ate 2295 calories. Total deficit is 10,710. 3 pounds!
Sun:11/4 367 calorie deficit, ate 2303 calories. Total deficit is 11,162.
Mon: 11/5 500 calorie deficit, ate 1602 calories. Total deficit is 11,662
Tue: 11/6 370 calorie deficit, ate 1708 calories. Total deficit is 12,032.
Wed: 11/7 112 calorie deficit, ate 2010 calories. Total deficit is 12,144.
Thu: 11/8 156 calorie deficit, ate 2486 calories. Total deficit is 12,300.
Fri: 11/9 132 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2686 calories. Total deficit is 12,168.
Sat: 11/10 35 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2404 calories. Total deficit is 12,133.
Sun: 11/11 868 calorie SURPLUS, ate 3125 calories. Total deficit is 11,265.
Mon: 11/12 377 calorie deficit, ate 1930 calories. Total deficit is 11,642.
For my reference:
4 pounds= 14,000 calories
5 pounds= 17,500 calories
6 pounds= 21,000 calories
7 pounds= 24,500 calories
8 pounds=28,000 calories
9 pounds=31,500 calories

Daily reward is to post here, 4 day reward is TBD.

I updated my "Other Goals" on SP to reflect my new program which includes 1 day of strength training per week, reducing my PT exercises to once a week, and 2 high-intensity exercise sessions per week. Also, low aerobic exercise during break at work (usually walking). And, here's a reminder to myself on why I REALLY need to do my strength training at least once a week... I have to remind myself that I have a very hard time maintaining my weight when I'm not keeping the muscle on. I tried the same thing before and ended up gaining fat.

I want to get some exercise 6 days a week, any way I can. I'm not going to be picky. I'm trying to keep the principles of Younger Next Year in mind: exercising enough to produce growth hormone 6 days a week keeps the body young.

Rewards owed: I've decided that I'm going to put money in my "piggy bank", it always makes me feel good to do that. I owe the piggy bank $100, myself a new song, and the groupon haircut. Now I need to pick a prize for sticking to 10% junk diet for my 4th and 5th weeks.

~New 4DW to drink 8 cups of water, eat 230g of freggies, and 10 minutes of exercise daily!

When weight is over goal, I will go back on a 400 - 500 calorie deficit, while not eating less than 1200 calories, until I'm back at goal... I don't want to just eek by with a tiny deficit every day or I'll never meet my goals. I think the only way I'm going to reach my goal is if I keep my calories low, usually while exercising. I'm trying to keep that in focus!! Here's a recent revelation for me: "last night I allowed myself to suffer through the hunger, I was starved and couldn't sleep but I refused to give in. I knew it wouldn't kill me, and I was right!

Susan, Don't worry about yesterday!!! You're still doing great and that's just a little bump. Sorry to hear about all the stress. Somebody should step up to be the president of the bird club, although they have gotten used to you doing it. (Although I'm not surprised by nobody wanting to; I'm sure it is a fair amount of work.)

I finished 21 days!!!! emoticon Yippee!!!

Now I'll start a new streak, although I'm leaving Friday for a week vacation. Not sure how I will handle that yet, but typically I just enjoy myself and start up again when I return.

Hi Cassie! I'm so glad you made it though the hurricane and didn't even lose electricity!

I have to admit that I had a really bad food day yesterday, and I'm regrouping now. I'm going to stop doing my 10% junk food diet for at least a little while. I feel so restricted and stressed out with it! I'm starting to realize that my inability to restrict myself lately has to do with some changes in my life. I'm stressed about starting a new program for my advanced degree, and stressed about the bird club. This year, I've been the president of the bird club and several months ago, I let them know that I would be unable to do it next year. There isn't a future bird club president yet, and people are starting to put pressure on me to stay on. I've told them that I can't, but it's stressing me out. I found myself trying to talk to one of the newer members into taking the job yesterday.

I'm starting over today on Day 1 of sane eating!

Daily deficit and totals: Starting over from the day I started my 10% junk food diet on 9/25/12.

Thu: 11/1/ 415 calorie deficit, ate 2295 calories. Total deficit is 10,710. 3 pounds!
Fri: 11/2 118 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2093 calories. Total deficit is 10,592.
Sat: 11/3 203 calorie deficit, ate 1982 calories. Total deficit is 10,795.
Sun:11/4 367 calorie deficit, ate 2303 calories. Total deficit is 11,162.
Mon: 11/5 500 calorie deficit, ate 1602 calories. Total deficit is 11,662
Tue: 11/6 370 calorie deficit, ate 1708 calories. Total deficit is 12,032.
Wed: 11/7 112 calorie deficit, ate 2010 calories. Total deficit is 12,144.
Thu: 11/8 156 calorie deficit, ate 2486 calories. Total deficit is 12,300.
Fri: 11/9 132 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2686 calories. Total deficit is 12,168.
Sat: 11/10 35 calorie SURPLUS, ate 2404 calories. Total deficit is 12,133.
Sun: 11/11 868 calories SURPLUS, ate 3125 calories. Total deficit is 11,265.

For my reference:
4 pounds= 14,000 calories
5 pounds= 17,500 calories
6 pounds= 21,000 calories
7 pounds= 24,500 calories
8 pounds=28,000 calories
9 pounds=31,500 calories
10 pounds= 35,000 calories

New 7 day win to eat only 10% of total weekly calories as junk food. My definition of junk food will be processed foods, salty nuts, alcohol (beyond 5 oz of wine or 12 oz of beer) and sugary foods and drinks. I will allow myself to eat dark chocolate, home made french fries (baked), home made chips (baked), and natural nuts, as part of my 90%. I will not add junk calories not eaten in previous week, but will start over each week. I can have small treats daily, or wait days to have a larger dessert, as long as I keep the total calories for the week under 10%. I will record number calories of junk I eat every day.
Sun: 0 junk, ate 2303 calories.
Mon: 85 calories junk of 1602. Cumulative calories 3905.
Tue: 317 calories junk of 1708, cumulative junk 402, cumulative calories 5613.
Wed: 0 junk of 2010 calories, cumulative junk 402, cumulative calories 7623
Thu:0 junk of 2486 calories, cumulative junk is 402, cumulative calories 10,109
Fri: 675 junk of 2686 calories, cumulative junk is 1077,cumulative calories 12,795
Sat: 661 junk of 2404 calories, cumulative junk is 1738,cumulative calories 15,199.
My daily reward is to post my accomplishment here, and my 7 day reward is TBD.
Didn't quite make this, went 218 calories over on junk, but I'm going to call it done.

I updated my "Other Goals" on SP to reflect my new program which includes 1 day of strength training per week, reducing my PT exercises to once a week, and 2 high-intensity exercise sessions per week. Also, low aerobic exercise during break at work (usually walking). And, here's a reminder to myself on why I REALLY need to do my strength training at least once a week...

I am going to go for a 4 day win.....No candy and no binge eating. If I am going to have a snack at night I will plan it put it on a plate and eat it mindfully. I will not eat anything from a bag, box or cooking pot.

Here I go.
