Oops been a week.

Any way, I was real sick. I don't know what it is. But, I think I'm about to get over it.

Last night the chat went GREAT, had 8 people show up! I am so hoping it will start getting to be really a habit of our group. I think it will be real encouraging.

I've decided that we are going to see if we can get some buddy system going, so each member who is trying to lose weight has a personal buddy to encourage them and keep them going on.

I had gained a little. But, now I think I lost that little gain. (I'm a compulsive weigher) So I think I've broke a little platue I was having. Or at least I hope so. Awe well, with my little increase of exercise each month, I will be increasing my exercise on the 5th so I know that will help.

I joined my groups monthly challenge this month. And I think that will help me too.

I just love how my group is getting more serious about losing weight and getting healthy. And I've been really trying to brain storm ideas on ways to really keep us focused and help us even more. And using peoples suggestions that they turn in. And I think the combination of all this is really helping. At least it's helping me.

Well, got to go shopping today. Will try to update more later.

September 19, 2003

Current Weight: 227

I've bought Dr. Phil's book on weight loss, and I think if I apply his reccomendations it could really help. I'm still doing Richard Simmons plan though. Just using Dr. Phil's head stuff.

For dinner last night. I had 1 cup cauliflower. And a Caesar salad I made up. 2 ounces of grilled chicken, with garlic powder and Mc Grillers chicken seasonings on it. 1/2 cup of chick peas, 1 cup broccoli, 1/4 cup low fat shredded cheese, 2 table spoons low fat Caesar salad dressing. Put in a pita pocket.



For breakfast this morning. I had 2 pieces of french toast, 3/4 cup of strawberries, with 1 1/2 teaspoons of powdered sugar, 1 cup of 2% milk, and Atkins sugar free syrup, it's zero calories so didn't cost any of my foods. Today I soaked the french toast in the egg beaters. So it took a 1/2 cup of egg beaters. Tomorrow though I am just going to dip real fast and cover them, so that it don't soak up so much and I can maybe only use 1/4 cup of egg beats so it's only one protein. I just noticed the picture I took of my beautiful breakfast was blurred! GRRRR. Should have taken a 2nd just in case. But, here it is any way.

Hi, many of you already know me. This will be my journal into weight loss, and healthier living along the way. I started yesterday in a different eating plan. I am doing the Richard Simmons Food Mover. I will also start to add 15 minute walks when I get the time. (soon!)

I will be posting what I eat. Which is a lot because of the calories that The Food Mover has started me at. 2000 calories a day! Yesterday I didn't get all my calories in. Today I am on a better start. But, still need to do more shopping to get things more correct with the diet. I got a little shopping done last night that helped this morning. I will also post the recipes I used. So here goes.

Yesterday I got a late start and didn't eat breakfast. I ate lunch and dinner though. And a mid afternoon snack. Click on Food for recipe! I wish I would have took pictures. Sorry I will try to remember next times.

Lunch:
1/2 hamburger
1/2 hamburger bun
BBQ sauce (about 1 teaspoon)
1/2 cup of apple sauce

Mid Afternoon Snack:
2 Graham Crackers
1TB of Peanut Butter

Dinner:
Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad
Added
1/2 cup of chick peas
a few water chestnuts
3/4 cup of carrots
(to get in more of the carbs and veggies I needed for the day)

Today:

Breakfast:
Peanut Butter and Jelly French Toast
1 cup of 2% milk

Ok so I'm still working on the snacks. :)
