well I haven't hit menopause yet, so I suppose it's not out of the question.

Only one woman asked about the baby. Most people probably think it, but don't ask.

I weighed myself this afternoon with just my boxers and my shirt on and I was 158.8. Thats a pretty low afternoon read. I haven't been eating much due to health reasons. I did eat a burger today though.

Default Re: Weight Loss and Exercise #4

I had a couple of high calorie days due to a migraine, feeling nauseous, and needing to be a little carb heavy to help with nausea (toast). But I kept my step count up despite the migraine, and made sure to make healthy decisions despite needing a little higher calorie count, and this morning Andy and I went for a 3 mile run, and I was actually running and not trudging along at painful jog, we finished faster than we ever have before. And I weighed in with the scale (it's analog) hovering at 200 but slightly to the left side of it, like I'm at 199.99, lol. I'm committed to going back to my lower calorie choices and making sure I get cardio and strength training in. I do have to alternate them because I need the cardio to burn calories but the strength training is what helps improve my speed with the cardio - they are interconnected for sure.

I almost don't believe it, when I lost all this weight before and then gained those 20lbs back, it was really upsetting and I wasn't sure I could do it again. I'm scared I will self-sabotage or that my body will stop cooperating. But I know I have to just keep moving forward. At some point this week that scale is tipping under 200. We are having a serious dance party when it happens!

Im liking the new weight watchers. Each cup of veg you eat earns you an extra point for the day! Ive already made a lot of diabetic-positive changes to my diet over the last year or so, so this is not too miserable. Just trying to not let myself get driven by the numbers so much that i ignore how i feel.

I wasn't in the mood much for food or soda today. I had a 100 calorie pack of nuts and most of a small strawberry frosty. I had a caffeine free Coke for the sugar. I had a cup of instant mashed potatos before therapy so she wouldn't get on my case about food. Dinner was a bowl of Forbidden rice ramen. I did drink 4 bottles of water. I'm going to the store in the morning to get some vegetables and humus and more rice noodles. I go to the store every other day because I can only eat 2 or 3 pieces of vegetables at a time or it gets overwhelming and then I don't eat them at all.

I was 157.8 this morning. I went to the grocery stores and got broccoli, cauliflower, fennel, carrots, dark chocolate hummus, not sure thats really good though, blackberries and some other stuff. I'm not sure whats up with this recent vegetable craving. Not that I've been doing all that great with eating well in general. I had 2 little bags of Doritos before 3AM and a full calorie 20oz Coke at 7AM But then I ate an entire bag of steamed broccoli for lunch and I just now had 5 little plain boiled potatos and I always just figure things balance out.

Default Re: Weight Loss and Exercise #4

Omg the scale is wavering between 199 and 200. I have been pretty good on diet this week. My choices are getting even better as I go which is bringing my calorie count down.

Andy and I went for a brisk run again this morning, and I felt even stronger than the run on Tuesday. I really want to do a good yoga session because I know working my muscles combines with the cardio is what helps me get over the plateau. And since I can only restrict calories so much without getting anxiety, exercise in combination with healthy diet is always what works best for me. I can't just change my diet and be successful, because of the anxiety I get when I do that.

Anyways, you could say I broke the plateau today but I'm not counting it yet because that little needle was wavering. He needs some encouragement to swing left! How low can you go! Limbo time! Lol.

I'm not really in the mood for food today. Physically mostly. I had fennel for breakfast and I just now had a small pack of peanuts. I had a couple Mountain Dews and a couple unsweetened iced teas. I'm at 973 calories right now. I luckily don't need my thyroid removed so I won't gain a ton of weight. But yeah I'm just not really feeling in the mood for anything today and I don't feel like eating just because. If I get hungry I'll eat some Lucky Charms. I'm super exhausted today I'm waiting to hear back from another doctor about some stuff.

Seesaw, such good news! Yeah, i was falling into my old trap of trying to play to the Weight zwatchers numbers instead of responding to my hunger cues, which i have been working on. Today is the first day im actually starting to feel good in lordy i dont know how frickin long. No anxiety over food choices. A bit of actual energy!

I had a cup of lucky charms at midnight. A can of orange vanilla Coke at 2AM. Gluten free ramen without the broth and 2 Diet Cokes with cream at 9AM. An Oreo at noon and I just now had a can of caffeine free Coke and a pack of peanuts for dinner. So I'm around my goal calorie wise, although my quality and quantity in food is lacking. But whatever. I'm drinking water at least.

Andy and I went running 2 days in a row and yesterday I actually made it through an hour long yoga video. My body has gotten so much stronger. I even got into a backbend, a really strong one, twice.

Needle still hovering between 199 and 200. I probably need a couple of low calorie days to break the plateau. Planning on that this week.

As Andy and I keep running, it should keep falling. I put om shorts yesterday that were much looser.

I was 157.4 today. I wasn't up at all last night drinking soda and yeah I'm not eating too much either. So thats why my weight was so low today. So far for breakfast I had a bowl of rice ramen without the broth, and a 20oz Mountain Dew. Then I got a medium vanilla cold foam cold brew coffee and avocado toast from Dunkin Donuts. I had the coffee right away and ate the toast for lunch. I'm at 880 calories right now and my stomach is slightly off from lunch. So I'm not sure if I want to push it anymore and be totally out of commisson. So far I'm still able to function. My mom had planned on making ribeye steaks for dinner but we have family stuff going on currently so I don't know what the plans are.

I ended the day with about 1,183 calories and 4 bottle of water. Kinda heavy on the carbs but under my sodium goal I spent about 1.5 hours outside and had to walk a bit from the car to the park. If I'm not down at least a pound in the morning then that is just insane and calories in calories out is truly the only thing that works for me because I barely leave my room and I can lose weight.

Still floating around that 199/200 mark. Actually came I just a few steps under 10k last night due to heat and sore legs from all the walking, running, and yoga.

I am proud of myself because I so desperately wanted to order sushi last night. Instead I put in a small grocery order and got some raw yellowfin tuna. I used my rice paper to make spicy tuna spring rolls, low calorie and delicious, and cold instead of hot (cold meals in this heat are essential). Plus I have enough for at least another meal, and I spent way less than when I order sushi.

Andy has been a little poopy the last few mornings, so I hope our "rest" day yesterday helped him recharge and he'll want to run with me this morning.

I'm still just hanging around the 157-159 mark. Today I had most of a Lunchable for breakfast, a pack of Planters peanuts for lunch, and a bowl of of Trix cereal for an afternoon snack. I also had a 20oz regular Coke and a large cake batter iced coffee with skim milk and no sugar or splenda. I am having one of my physically off days so my calories are low and my food quality isn't great. I haven't figured out dinner yet. I don't have any fennel left but I have some mixed nuts or some almond butter I think is still good. I have around 289 calories left for dinner but I can't handle anything hot tonight or even Iukewarm like eggs.

I got a shot of saline and some other shots of stuff through an IV this morning. I think saline makes you gain water weight. Sometimes a good amount. I know my stomach is looking kinda big right now despite not eating today.

I ordered a North Face hoodie and its too big and they don't carry a smaller size only the actual stores do but their color collection is lame. And its like I don't even have anyone to rant to about clothing sizes being too big because people don't get it and just think its an awesome problem to have.

I'm still not making any progress but I'm not gaining either. Today I was 159 exactly. I started a new stomach pain med Friday night that has lowered my appetite and has also seemed to have helped my sleep. At least these last 2 nights. I've been into fruit lately. Which is strange because I have told my therapist before that I hate fruit, and I often go months without eating any. But I spent about $30 on exotic summer fruits on Friday that I'm trying not to let go bad but I'm also trying to balance my carbs at the same time. The cotton candy grapes are gone and the summer kiss melon is more then halfway gone. So far though my quality of food has greatly improved. My quantity still needs some working on.
