I got to 169 today. I am so happy. Thatís my lowest weight since January. Only 4 more pounds and Iíll be at my lowest weight since 2019.

So far today I had a cold brew coffee from Starbucks and one of the 2 egg bites I got. I gave the other to my mom. I have a package of frozen strawberries thawing and I got a bag of frozen grilled zucchini and a bag of lightly sauced corn Iíll have today. Iíll also have a can of Tyson chicken for dinner. I have down 1178 calories.

I am trying to lose weight but there also isnít much motivation to eat. So itís been easy. I got a lunch special yesterday from a restaurant and I got a lunch size serving of fettuccine and a lunch size serving of spaghetti. Both about 200 calories each. I had the fettuccine around 2:30 and then I tried eating the spaghetti for dinner yesterday at 7 and I took 2 bites of it and got full. So itís been kind of easy to control things.

I was 170 exactly today. Iím not surprised. I had a 12oz caffeine free Coke, a 12oz glass of iced coffee, then an 8oz can of coffee Coke, and 16oz of water all between 12:30 and 4:30 this morning. Thatís a lot of liquids.

So far besides the drinks early this morning Iíve had a pink drink and a turkey bacon egg white sandwich from Starbucks. I plan on having a bag of frozen strawberries, a bag of frozen zucchini, and a can of Tyson chicken. My calories equal to 1185.

Iím not very hungry because of anxiety and the heat.

I tried on some clothes this morning that I am trying to fit into, and they fit pretty good. A lot better than the last time I tried them on. Iím happy with that. I hope they fit even better the more I lose.

Last time I stepped on the scale I was the same weight as before. I'm trying my best to eat well. I'm not very active because of pain.

168.6 today. Thatís my lowest since last summer. I havenít been able to eat much since my surgery. Iím having a lot of anxiety which is also making it hard to eat. I had a banana and a little bag of Goldfish crackers this morning and they made me anxious.

Also Iím doing Noom which changes your relationship and mindset about food. It helps you stop craving unhealthy stuff and then you just eat filling foods. Like it helps you switch from grabbing some ice cream and retrains your brain to grab like frozen grapes or something.

Itís $171 but its for 6 months. Itís a lot of reading and comprehension and you have to weigh yourself everyday and log everything you eat. So you do have to work at it itís not a magic solution. But it has worked for a lot of people and itís been the only thing that has been making a difference for me. Iíve tried pre made meals and Atkins and slim fast. But I needed to change my relationship with food in order to be successful.

Plus I probably have some type of restricting eating disorder which isnít good.

I lost some weight today because I haven't eaten much. I think I will start eating less and going hungry more. That might be the only way for me to lose weight.

I was 168.8 today. I was kind of nervous to weigh myself because of the fluids I had last night and also I ate a piece of pizza when I got home so I had about 1400 calories for the day yesterday. But I barely gained anything. So far today Iíve had a caffeine free Coke, a summer strawberry salad from Wendyís that I didnít finish, and an ice cream cone from Sonic that I ate until I got to the cone. So I have down 793 calories but itís probably way less since I didnít finish those 2 things. I donít know what else Iíll eat today.

I'm below 300 now. That was my first milestone. I'm so happy I made it. My next goal is to get to 295. It will mean I'm really in the 200's again. I have lost 11 lbs in 6 weeks.

Despite barely eating before dinner yesterday, my half burrito from the Mexican restaurant caused me to gain almost 4 pounds. But it could also be PMS too.

So far today I had a couple chocolate paydays around 2:30. My chocolate craving is a big sign itís PMS. I had a coffee, that I barely touched, an ice cream cone I couldnít really eat because I couldnít physically hold the cone, a plate of frozen grilled zucchini, a 100 calorie pack of nuts, and now Iím trying to eat a bag of frozen grapes. Iím not sure about dinner or about my calories. I have down 1,210 that includes a can of chicken for dinner.

I weighed 171.8. Still not bad and below what I was the other day. I expected to be 173. Yesterday I just grazed and I didnít eat much of anything I started. Iím good at not eating when Iím not hungry.

Today I had a couple sodas and a bag of chips early. Then I had a cake pop for a mid morning snack. Lunch was a bag of steamed corn. Dinner was some frozen zucchini. It wasnít the best but the vegetables helped. I was right at my 1400 calorie goal for today.

I've lost 2 more pounds. I'll be at 295 pretty soon. At 297 I feel safe in the 200's. I am glad. I think the Cymbalta is helping me lose weight. I'm so excited. I'm being really careful about what I eat. I bought potatoes to have as a meal with avocados. But I can't bring myself to eat the potatoes because of the carbs. Maybe I can eat a couple as part of a meal. I could prepare some green vegetables and a protein to go with it. So that is an option. Then I'm not depriving myself.

Iím upping my calories for a few days until I can get past my PMS. So far today Iíve had a glass of Oreo iced coffee and 3 iced teas with flavoring. I plan on having a mchicken and a double cheeseburger from McDonaldís for lunch. If I can deal with it. Iím not sure about dinner. After lunch Iíll be at 1005 calories. Iím aiming for 1580 calories but maintenance is 1860 according to Noom.

I honestly donít feel very good physically today and I canít tell if itís from stress or all the iced teas. So Iím not very hungry.

I have to get smaller pants though. I was a 34/32 but Iím pretty much a 32 now. Last year at this time I was a 36. But I hope my shorts hold out until the end of summer.

I lost another pound. I'm really happy about that. I'm almost to my new goal weight. Just 1 more pound to go.

I lost almost a pound since yesterday despite PMS and eating McDonaldís and an ice cream cone from Dairy Queen. I had around 1,485 calories. I donít understand why my mental health team doesnít believe in calories in vs calories out.

So far today I had a bowl of quinoa at midnight. Then around 7:30 I had an Amyís Mexican TV dinner. I usually just drink soda for breakfast. I did get a diet cherry Vanilla Coke from sonic today while I was out this morning. For lunch Iíll have some Goldfish crackers and for dinner Iíll have a can of roast beef. Iíll probably have a plum or a peach too but right now Iím at 1179 calories for the day.

I think Iíll go get a coffee from Dunkin Donuts so my calories will actually equal to 1,270 before any fruit. To lose weight quickly I need to be eating 1400 calories. So 1,270 is still low.

I maintained exactly the same weight as yesterday. 171 exactly. My goal is to just get through these last couple days of PMS and work through my cravings without gaining anything. Usually when I PMS I get up to 176 pounds.

But a hungry man fried chicken TV dinner sounds so good right now. But they are the worst TV dinners and they have 970 calories and a **** ton of sodium. I am legit starting to worry about my cholesterol now so Iím trying to watch it.

I was really hungry last night around 7 but I just chugged a diet caffeine free Mountain Dew and I got to sleep. But then I woke up at midnight to have a snack.

I'm below my goal weight. I'm really happy. I think this Cymbalta is really working miracles. And I'm very careful about what I eat. I have a new goal weight. It's 270. I think by then I can walk around the block again. Maybe sooner if my back injections go well. My knees are good now. I'm getting around my house with no problem. I just want to walk again.

So far Iíve had 995 calories. Minus the broth from my ramen and if I can finish this can of turkey I started.

These last few days were rough with hunger and PMS. Diet soda and unsweetened flavored iced teas do work even if they arenít good.

I ate well today except once. I had cheese and nuts when I wasn't hungry. I was stressed. I feel sick now. I don't want to eat again until tomorrow afternoon.

So I did of course end up back at 176 yesterday. Stupid PMS. But today I was 173. If I can just get to like 165 Iíd be ok for the next round of PMS. Today I had an RX bar, some vegetables and fruit. I plan on having some roasted Brussel sprouts and some Goldfish crackers but thatís pretty much zero protein and Iíd still be under 1200 calories for the day. So I may have to adjust things and maybe eat a can of meat or something.

I was hungry last night and snacked. The scale has the same weight as before. So I feel good about that. I haven't had breakfast yet and it's after noon. I'm just not really hungry. I might have a breakfast sandwich when I do eat. That's easy to prepare. I'm organizing my bedroom. That's my exercise.

I weighed 164 lbs this morning. I should eat less rice (I'm Asian) for breakfast and lunch, but I get hungry easily without it. This afternoon, I was able to exercise for an hour, so I hope it helps. I really need to lose weight because I'm too heavy for my height.
