The food thread - "we desrve to be healthy & in shape"...
« on: March 25, 2008, 11:01:57 AM »
Hi all, hope you like the title of this thread, which is a paraphrase on Betty's mantra...

I didn't think of starting it so soon, as I am having my period, which is, of course, a great excuse to not pay attention to what I'm eating, which basically means that I can get away with eating things that aren't good for me, and/or at quantities that are to good for me, and for the wrong reasons - stress and emotional pain rather than hunger.

I won't write much now, cos I'm at work. For me, lack of discipline with food and excercise goes hand in hand with lack of it in other areas such as work. But I don't expect (or want to) become perfect. I opened this thread for the support, so we can tell each other what we ate (horribly boring, but no one's keeping an eye on that, and since a lot of eating is secretive takes that away), or any bad (or good) habits that we have, or give each other tips on excercise etc - in short, anything to do with feeling physically better. I know there's a nutrition forum, but somehow I feel better writing about this stuff here. Maybe cos it's an emotional thing as well. Maybe a lot of this stuff couldv'e gone in the dating thread, but since it's such a specific topic I don't want to burden that thread with too many details.

So my resolution for starting this thread is to become aware in the upcoming days (until Fri) of what an how I eat, to list what I eat, the time, and the reason, and if you guys are cool with it post it here too. Since I am going away for a week next week, I'll probabaly start my diet or lifestlye change the following week. I have only been on a diet once when I was 20, I mean one that lasted more than a few days.

It ended up being quite long anyway.
I also wanted to say this thread shouldn't just be about food but anything that makes as physically better, like quitting or cutting down smoking  ;)

Good luck to us. We can do it. Why the hell not.

Oh TreDai, what is Meridia?  Is it a diet aid?  I need something really bad.  I'm 5'9" and I weight about 170.  When I quit smoking the last time I put on 25 lbs. 

Well, for breakfast this morning I ate a bowl of Cheerios (1 cup) and a piece of whole wheat toast with peanut butter.  Right now, however, I'm drinking an Arizona RX Energy tea.  I haven't had any caffeine in about 5 days (maybe longer) and I need some.  My body was detoxing and I'm not ready for that.  But I do need to watch what I eat, not only for weight's sake, but also because I'm diabetic. 

As far as exercising, I have limits.  I have two broken kneecaps (have been that way for about 7 years) and the cartilage in the left one is totally collapsed.  So my walk (posture) is way off.  I tilt (lol). 

I would rather post about this here than in the nutrition thread also, Drag.  I feel more comfortable around my sisters. 

Oh, and I did go to the tobacco store and get a pack of smokes a little while ago.  I keep telling myself 'tomorrow, tomorrow.'  Of course, that's what I used to say when I was strung out also.  Thanks for starting this Drag!

I am 5'9 and 185  :-[, my problem area is my stomach.  I lost a lot of the weight after the babies but I could stand to lose some more.  I have chicken legs and small feet so I look like I am going to fall over.

I didn't eat anything for breakfast and my SO took me to the chinese buffet and I had rice, chicken, vegtables, crab ragoons with a rootbeer.  I just came home and squirted it out, this should tell me to stay away from this kind of food.  Believe me, I am trying, obviously not hard enough.

I need to get some yogurt and veggies to snack on.

Hi ladies

I eat a lot of vegies and fruit, dont take dairy products and caffeine at all due to migrane headaches if I need milk I use soya milk. I also like fish instead of meat. Dont do junk food since my diagnosis. I try to go to the gym three times a week not unless I am lazy. This really works for me. Also take one vitamin per day with my meds.

Drag- you are right the name is Thandi I thought you guys wont be able to pronounce it since its a South African name, completely forgot about Thandi Newton.

How is everyone. Keep healthy and take care.

Thandi, if I lived like you, I wouldn't be posting this! I have heard though that soya milk is not so good for women, depending on the age. I don't know the detials of it, know it has something to do with the estrogen in it and risk of cancer.

I will have to get the conveter to calculate lbs, we do kilos here. But I don't think regardless of how much much each of us weighs, this is more about how we want to feel and take care of ourselves, the result of which should also be weight loss in some cases. For me the disaprity between what I know about what i should be doing and what i am doing is the difference. But I am not going to make any changes until 2 weeks from now when i come back, I'm just going to take note of my behavior. Well today was a very emotional day (period) and I ate accordingly, cottage cheese, kiwis, picos (kind of snacks) and chocolate for breakfast, 4 slices of bread and cheese for lunch, and a bag of carrots, salad with canned pineapple and asparagus, & egg, 4-5 cuppucinos, which is bad not just cos of the coffee itself (which I have only started drinking several months ago when I began being bored senesless at work), but also because of the powdered milk from the machine, so basically lots of fat and lots of processed junk, and for dinner a stir fry of veggies, salmon and teriyaki sauce and baked potatoes with a can of beer. Not the worst day for eating by far from me, but I will not lose weight if I eat like that, or feel too good. Still like i said can do much worse... this is actually about 1/2 what i eat normally, b/c when i have my period I am not so hungry and kinda put off by food.

I actually went to the gym to cancel my subsrcitpiotn b/c I was fed up with my overpriced gym, b/c I am bored with the excercise routine, machines etc, and lets face it, with being surrounded by good looking people when I seem to gain weight. But in the entrance i met this guy who is a friend of my BF, he is a professional trainer but has also gained a lot of weight due to a nasty breakup, and he encounraged me to keep training, so i put the cancellation off for a month... I had the half assed idea that I will work out better on my own, but who knows. Anyway he recommended that I do the 3o sec workout, that is foing each weight for 30 sec of repetition and resting for 30 sec, and with the cardio, using the "surprise" program to vary things up a bit. I'm glad I met him, showed me that even an expert like him who grew up around gyms can struggle with weight gain, emotional eating and body image. i asked him how he was and he said "fatter and older"  :D. We are not alone ladies.

I decided to limited myself to 2 cups of coffee at home and 1 capuccino at work, and have only green tea if I need caffeine. I can't go cold turkey on this one. I also decided to do a yoga excercise whenever I want to eat not at lunch or tea time. Cos I am alone in the room and bored, and also stressed, its very easy for me to turn to food without really noticing, while in front of the computer. i also dont take breaks to eat, have lunch and breakfast in front of it, and dinner in front of the TV. Not good.

Hopefully I haven't bored you all to tears. don't worry I won't describe my menu daily. I also want to know what Meridia is, but I know I won't be taking it. Betty don't feel bad about the smokes, the mechanism might be the same as in drug addiction but the habit is still different. Maybe if you do some excercise each time you want to smoke, you could control the craving, and smoke less. You are not on Chantix again are ya?

So who here wants to change how they're eating? Wendy I don't think your sandich is that bad, it depends what else you eat and how varied is your diet. I don't think there is one food to totally stay away from. I like sour bread...

Sun sorry you had the squirts, I had them awful the other day after some Thai fish sauce with chilly. Maybe something in our meds reacts badly to Asian spices.

Wishful, I also lose weight when I get sick, that was my big weight loss 2 years ago actually. Maybe you can use the recent drop as a kind of kickstart for an improved way of eating. It's a great feeling fitting into old clothes, haven't had that in a while. My Bf's gained a lot too, we indulge each other.

I hope Viv will come round too...

let's keep each other posted on our efforts, what we want to change, etc.

have a great evening.

I'm sitting my well-rounded hiney right next to wishful...move over hun :-*  I'm 5ft 8in. and 210lbs. Whew! thought about lying on that one, but then, what would be the point? My lowest weight was 93 (when i was sick).  My average "healthy" weight was 120. I go to dance class for 2hrs once a week and I'm starting to jump rope.  I don't eat a lot of junk food and there's no sugar in the house since Mini's diabetic.  I tried taking Alli, but it had adverse effects on my ostomoy.  Now, I'm on Hoodia and like it a lot.  I may ask for a Rx - but I'd have to get a doctor first. 

Also, because of my ostomy, i can't eat any fresh fruits or veggies.  I've only drank water for nearly a year now.  THAT was a hard transition!  I used to drink a lot of juice and kool-aide.  Oh, I do drink 8oz of chocolate milk a day.  I take a fist-full of vitamens everyday, too.  I don't need the perfect body.  I just need the energy and heart-health to keep up with the kids (and grandkids that will come later).  I have a family history of heart disease and adult-onset diabetes, so I really want to get the weight off.  I'd like to get down to about 150 / 160.  For my height, it's a healthy weight.

That's all from me.  I like this idea of support for one another.  We're all in this together!  So, onward Ho, TBs!  To battle we go, and together, WE WILL WIN!

160 lbs converts to 72.73 kilos according to the online converter I used.

My lowest weight was 110 lbs or 50 kgs
I was emaciated and exhausted all the time. Wasting syndrome. It took several years and unfortunately depression and binge eating to put the weight back on. But I didn't stop at a normal weight. Which for me would be about 135 lbs at the highest. My normal before kids was 125 lbs.
Nooooo, I had to get to 185 lbs before I realised what I was doing to myself. I have gotten back down to 140 lbs a couple of times only to go right back up to 160.

For the most part I am ok with my body size. Its just my mid section that bothers me. I'm self conscience of how my belly sticks out.
Its like almost all the extra fat I have is in that area. There is a pinch on my inner and outer thighs and my rear has always been voluptuous.
But the belly, I just cant stand it.  My face is a little bigger and so is the rest of me even my little boobs but its proportionate it think.

Soooo the makeover fairy needs to give me a boob job, tummy tuck, laser hair removal, FotoFacial treatments, Sclerotherapy and some naturally glorious hair. LOL  My honey would poop his pants.

You know even when I was all skin and bones I had a poochy belly. Its either pregnancy, HIV or both.

Wendy
 I am with you, I would love a tummy tuck.  When I had my Aids diagnosis back in 00 (I think) I went down to a size 8 /10 and that was way to small for my frame.  I am big boned and when I was in shape, my weight was 170.  My normal weight should probably be around 155-160.  One good thing I guess is everyone is suprised when they realize I have had trip  lets....so I must hide it well too.

For din din tonight- we had grilled chicken salad, with Hidden Valley Ranch dressing.  I could eat chicken salad everyday and I could have HVR on anything except fish and chocolate :)

Let's pray for good weather so we can get out an excercise....I wish I could say that with enthusiasm but I am not there...yet :)

yep must be kind of ironic to you Tendai. Sorry for making you hungry. You can't even get most of this stuff.... :-\

Ladies, I thought maybe this link could help out, I run into it after my dx when looking for poz resources. It's not just about dieting and all that, but about reaching your specific ideal weight and well being thru self acceptance and mindful eating.

http://www.bodypositive.com/

It's a big site, I have never had time to explore all of it, but this was the best part so far, how to identify real hunger and eat mindfully. since I mentioned that I eat all my meals in front of one screen or another, this is obviosuly not what I've been doing.

Well, for breakfast, I had a piece of whole wheat toast with 2 Tbsp peanut butter and 1/2 a small glass of milk, because I'm almost out of milk and I get can't anymore until tomorrow (if my ASO has a food voucher to the local grocery store I can get).   Then about an hour later I had a granola bar.  I did do some abdominal exercises this morning and thought I was going to go into spasms.  Then I did a little yoga.  That's what I've done today.  I'll report back later on everything I've eaten.  Last night I was bad and had 2 Little Debbies.  I love those things.

OK, here I am. LOL! Well when I got  sick last year I was losing weight. I don't know how much I weighed then but I was about a size 10. During the summer I went downhill fast and the lowest weight I got to was 117lbs. I am 5'3. My period even stopped. Anyways...when I was able to eat normally everyone encouraged me to eat and I ate what I wanted and put on about 30 lbs in 3 months and have gained an additional 15. I am now a size 14 and am the biggest I have ever been..... >:( :( >:( :(  I have heard that Atripla slows down metabolism so that doesn't help either. Everyone says "you look good" whatever...Down to business-I have gone to the gym everyday this week just to do cardio. I do the elliptical machine for about 20 minutes-easing into it :)

What I ate yesterday(had an emotional day and I am on my period too)
1 cup of coffee
1 cup of oatmeal
1 orange
1 apple
1/2 of a large black bean and chichen burrito
1 piece of string cheese
about 6 spoons of Ben and Jerry's  ;D
1 vodka 7
Oh and of course water throughout the day

Today
1 cup of coffee
1 cup of oatmeal
1/2 of a large black bean and chicken burrito (leftover from yesterday)

That's all so far! Good luck to me and to all of you!

last night b/c I had already written what I ate I turned down a glass of milk and a choclate which i usually have around 11-11:30 when I know I should go to bed but am just hanging there. So really beneficial to me having to report even though I might be boring. But I haven't had dinner yet so Ill write it all later or tomorrow.

Viv, you don't eat much at all... though the ice cream AND vodka made me laugh. The wasting thing kind of puts things in perspective. It's about feeling good not just looking good...

 Betty good luck with the excercises. Just came back from a jog - spring is here! - and gonna do some myself. I am always lazier when doing it at home than at the gym, something about people around makes me try harder.

Wendy you are too funny, like a teenage boy. I see them here have Red Bull for breakfast.

Wishful I try to have oatmeal a lot for brekkie too if I don't forget to buy it, it's really cheap & filling too.

OK, for lunch 1 c of beef pepper steak chop suey, 1 piece of whole wheat bread and 1 c applesauce.  Then for a snack, 2 1" slices of cheese.  I haven't eaten supper yet, and my stomach is grumbling. 

When I went through the wasting, I got down to 80 lbs (remember, I'm 5'9").  It took me over a year to recover and gain weight back from that.

Ok, confession time:
Breakfast: chocolate milk and vitamins
Lunch: pig in a blanket with 1/2 a hotdog and 1 biscuit, and a Hoodia pill
Dinner: porcupine meatballs (2), 1/2 a potato, and a spoon of baked beans, and a Hoodia pill
Snacks: 1 honeybun (it was little ::))

Hubby is offering to make a run to DQ for a  small Death by Chocolate Blizzard.  It's ooooooooooooooo so tempting.

Ok, now I'm hungry.

Well for lunch I was REALLY bad!

McDonald's  :-[
The 2 cheeseburger meal with a coke. So bad! I'm not really hungry now so I think it will be ok.

Alright, I had my last Cadbury egg for a snack tonight and a few Cheetos.  So, color me 'bad' and I'll try again tomorrow.  But I don't know if I can give up the Little Debbie I have every night before bed.

I had two soft tacos from Taco Bell. Didn't have time for a real meal. My honey fell off a ladder this afternoon and I had to take him to the doctor. He was puking and had diarrhea too. Nothing was broken but he got a happy shot and was told to stay off ladders. LOL
I just got home.

Wendy, sorry about your poor guy, hope he's OK.

I was awful yesterday, must be something in the air, I had yoghurt & honey for breakfast, salad with egg and corn and asparagus + cottage cheese + 3 slices of bread for lunch, 4 coffees & 1 green tea (so am starting to replace the xtra coffees with it) and 4 dates and picos (spanish type crackers) in the afternoon b4 jogging, then for dinner some pasta with mushrooms, salad and some baked potatoes. Sounds good right? But THEN I had 2 glasses of milk, finished the whole bag of picos and like 20 spanish chocolate bonbons. That was quite a binge, maybe cos I'm still menusrating I got sad, it was classic emotional eating cos I wasn't hungry at all.

I do notice that most of you aren't eating your fruit & veggies (wags index finger).

I'll come back with an update... best of luck for today

It's the SlimQuick with Hoodia in it.  It really does work.  It helps with the mid-day and evening munchies.  That's where I was getting into trouble.  And, since we don't keep snacks in the house, I would heat up leftovers and have another mini-meal.  It also helps keep the water weight down during my period.  Like most of us here, stress is another biggie.  It reduces the stress-weight and I'm sleeping better. It's expensive, but it's the only thing that's worked for me.

For breakfast this morning, I had a package of 'weight-control' oatmeal and 1/2 a small glass of milk.  I did exercise again this morning.  My whole body hurts like hell.  But, what's one to do.  I'll check back in later to report on any snacks, what I ate for lunch etc.  I think this is a good thing.

So far I've had a granola bar for lunch, but I think I'm going to have something else in a little while.  Not sure what; if it wasn't for worrying about my sugar crashing, I wouldn't eat anything until supper.

I went to Denny's with my son this morning and had the Moons over my hammie.  Sourdough sandwich with scrambled egg and cheese.

I only ate half the sandwich and half the hashbrowns and a coke. I got the rest in a to go box.

Got home and sweet heart was in bed still burning up with a fever. Got him to take some Tylenol.

I am typing with one hand right now. I got my grand baby sleeping on my chest.

I was with you this morning, Win.  We went to Eat n Park for breakfast.  I was a good girl (sort of) and ate some potatoes, 1 biscuit, 2pcs of bacon, 2 glasses of water, 2 waffles w/ syrup.  But, I didnt' eat lunch and so far haven't had any snacks.  For supper tonight we're having crazy baked pasta and fresh Italian bread.  My tummy is growling and I'm getting a headache.  I need to watch my sugar..a headache is a big sign that it's crashing.  I need to eat a banana and maybe some chocolate milk to boost it back up.

My body feels like it got run over by a mack truck - then it backed up over me ;)

Keep it up, TBs!  I think this is a great idea!!!

winn - is that the new grandbaby?  She's growing so fast!

Winn- The baby is so beautiful! :)

I forgot to post last night.

Yesterday I had 2 coffees, leftover chicken salad for lunch, and a tuna melt for supper.  Yogurt and banana for a snack.


Today, coffee(with water :) ...Thanks, Betty), went out to lunch with SO and had a small steak and cheese, with some cheese bread sticks.  The kids had Mickey D's I haven't eaten supper yet?

what a sweet baby!
if I hadn't lived in Japan, I wouldn't even know what Denny's was....
I totally and I mean totally effed up with my food today, it always starts good and ends bad for me. I had yogurt, honey & pear for breakfast, salad with chicken and pasta for lunch, 350 gr. of carrots, and for dinner big plate of rice with pork, beans & peas in coconut milk and green curry. oh & 1 coffee, 3 capuccinos, a beer can, glass of OJ, and glass of milk, + about 100 gr of chocolate (600 cals right there) and again half a packet of picos  :-\. everything was fine until after dinner, and I know I always eat from distress. My back hurts so I didn't excercise at all today.
Next week I am going away but when I come back I will get on a real diet, there'll be no more beer or snacks or chocolate. Ok maybe some chocolate, but not in the house. I'm OK if I eat these things outside, but if I have them in the house or in my office, I totally overdo it.

Good luck everybody, tomorrow's a new day...

Well, for supper I ate this frozen dinner called 'Amy's Organic Cheese and Vegetable Pasta Shells,' a garlic breadstick and 1/2 a banana.  That will probably hold me until around 8:00 or so when the late-evening free-for-all begins (with food).  Damn it, why can't I have a perfect body and eat what the hell I want to.

For supper, I ended up eating 2 pieces of toast and some ham i had sliced at the deli and my cup of chocolate milk.  Not the best in the world, but I wasn't in the mood for pasta.  I won't snack before I go to bed.

Well, this morning before I ate breakfast I did a Billy Blank workout.  Do you ladies know who he is?  He is a ruthless exercise instructor (kidding).  I guess he's a tae-bo instructor.  Well, I did as much of it as I could.

For breakfast, I had 1/2 a bagel w/cream chesse (yes, the regular kind), 1/2 a banana and 1/2 a small glass of milk.  I'm actually liking the way I'm feeling in the last few days. 

I also aired out my apartment b/c of the cigarette smoke smell (which I absolutely cannot stand), so I'm forcing myself to go outside if I want to smoke.  Which cuts down on the cigarettes, especially today.  It's only in the 30's.  Hopefully this will help.  Keep you fingers crossed.........

OK, ok.  I got a little refund from the school.  So I took a friend and myself to a local steakhouse.  I had a New York strip, a baked sweet potato, and a salad.  I ate 1/2 of everything and brought the other 1/2 home.  Then I went to the local Fannie May store, b/c they have buy 1 get 1 free on their spring assortment, and got some candy.  But I only ate two pieces.  So that's better than what I would have done.

I ate the other half of that ham, cheese and egg sandwich this morning. I had a handful of vegi potato crisps at lunch and a piece of french bread slathered in spaghetti sauce and italian blend cheese for dinner.

I don't know if I'll eat anything else. Guess it depends on whether something catches my fancy.

I forgot to write that I am 1.65 tall and weigh 64 kilos. That's 141 lbs.

yesterday: 1/4 baguette with light cream cheese & honey & coffee for breakfast
Lunch: Big salad (veggies only) & light cottage cheese for lunch

In between: 4 capuccinos  & Bounty bar  :-\
1 apple

Dinner: rice & green curry (as night before), glass of milk, 1/4 baguette & yoghurt/pudding

Hmm, if I just didn't have that bounty bar & the last desert, and 2 extra capuccinos, I'd be pleased with myself. I could probably have skipped the 2nd 1/4 baguette too.

today I had 1/4 baguette with light cream cheese & jam, 1 pear, 2 dates and 2 coffees (not capuccinos just regular), 1 green tea, so far, but I'll write it all later

Betty sounds like a nice lunch you had, am craving steak & salad now. what's a Fannie Mae?
off for a jog now

PS: this thread has been read more than 700 times. How many people are watching what we eat?

So far this morning, I've had a glass of water and a vitamen.  But, Hubby is in the kitchen making breakfast: bacon, biscuits, and eggs.  I'll have a couple pieces of bacon and a biscuit, no eggs, and my glass of chocolate milk.  Last night for supper, I made homemade chili, cornbread,and grilled cheese sandwiches. I had a bowl of chili and some crackers.  I managed to get through the evening without a snack - a huge change for me.

I've been sleeping a lot better, too. 

Well, I'm off to eat my breakfast.  I'll write later about what else I had to eat today.

I think your husband is my boyfriend's dream wife. I once, only once, made him bacon & eggs, and when he saw it he made a sound that I have heard him make, anywhere (need an eyebrow raising icon here). I don't know what thse buiscits are, some of the foods that you ladies eat are a piece of Americana for me.

Hi everyone

I have not been feeling too goodl had bit of a flu but getting better now.

Drag - thanks for the info on soya milk I threw away all my soya products, was also having soya yoghurt and soya cream for cooking. It get me so scared cause apart from this hiv thing I am a breast cancer survivor it was caught early though and the lump was removed. Gone through that horrible treatment chemo and radiation and the works, thats one of the reasons I am obsessed with leaving healthy. So this soya thing and cancer got me so scared. I will try and search some more info on it please get me some if you can.

Tendai - hope everything went well in Zim you are in my prayers.

Keep healthy everyone

Right now I am so hungry! I am going to make Eggplant Parmesan. I watch the foodnetwork and saw it on "Throwdown with Bobby Flay" and it looked good. I am still working out everyday. I spend 30 minutes on the elliptical and this morning I took my dog for a walk. Next week I think I am going to meet with a trainer.
Today:
1 cup of coffee 1 packet splenda and a little half and half

OMG we could start a volleyball team with the number of tall girls posting here!  :)

I am 5'5-1/2" and weighed 162 this morning.  I hover btwn 161-164 lbs.
(Drag, that's 73.63kg this morning, btwn 73.18 - 74.54 kg)

I am all boobs, FINALLY got them in 2005 at age 35, thanks to lipo.  I have great legs but my waist is pretty thick.  I carry my weight pretty well, but won't be sporting a bikini anytime soon.

Oh, and I'm on the Hershey's Miniatures Diet right now.  LOL

Crazy about South Beach Diet's Chicken Salad with Walnuts and Cranberries.  TONS of protein to curb hunger during the day.  For the diabetics it has about 26 grams carb, and just as much protein!  I bought 5 packs at Walmart today!  Its in a box where the lunch meats are sold, refrigerated section.

TreDai, I did a strenuous abs workout 3 days ago.  I didn't think I'd ever be able to raise my arms over my head again for the next 2 days. 

Well, my bff and I went to T.G.I.Friday's today and I had 1/2 of their cobb chicken salad and some fried green beans (I know that sounds gros, but they're really good).  They come with wasabi dip.  Then I had a Banana Anna coffee drink.  Lord knows how many calories that had.

On another note, I got some nicotine patches.  I seem to have the most luck with those.  The Chantix makes me extremely nauceous, no matter what I do.  That's my day (of course, the night's not over yet and there's still Fannie May to be had).

I don't know what thse buiscits are, some of the foods that you ladies eat are a piece of Americana for me.

Biscuits are just bread. The easy way of making them is opening a can of dough and baking them. Some people make the dough themselves.
I didnt see any biscuits on menus in the northern states but in the south they are a staple breakfast item.

Wendy, those look exactly like English scones to me

Thandi, I would hate to send you in a panic, actually I looked online and saw that there is evidence there is no link btw cancer & soya, then again there were studies to see if soya prevents cancer, then again I did read that it can cause cancer, but now I see that there is some serious research that it doesnt and may even protect. I just give you a link and you can look more yourself, the original article I read was not in English.

http://www.nature.com/bjc/journal/v98/n1/full/6604145a.html

In short, I didn't mean you to throw all your soy away... I just wanted to tell you maybe to look it up. I think the best thing since you're had the breast cancer treated is simply to ask the doctors, they are the ones most imformed bout research. what is clear is that soy ahs hormones in it and they could be linked either negatively or positively to cancer. sorry about that again...

I ate 1/4 baguette with light cream cheese and blackberry jam yesterday (wrote already), with green tea, 1 coffee (instant) a couple dates and a pear, then went to gym and had an apple, then for lunch a cucamber & tomato with light cream cheese, and at 17.00 a coffee (instant) and fruit salad topped with some pudding, & for dinner some rice & curry (yawn, I will make something else today, I always cook too much), chicken thigh with some chickpeas, 1 small bun, 300 gr of red berries for desert, and... 1 glass of milk with some chocolate, and.... 200 gr, yep 200 gr of pistaccios. but with the shells so more like 100 gr which is still an awful lot. what a mess... I definately strive to make my eating saner, as soon as I get back after next week. writing this makes me realize what an erratic eater I am and also that the most dangerous time for me is after dinner, the later it is in the day the more I am prone to F up.  I also sometimes even forget what I ate, like the other day I forgot to add a bag of snacks... it just goes to show how little attention I can pay to eating, and yet I eat all day long esp when working.

I don't know if I'll work out today. I know I should but am lazy. it's so boring. but I know if I do it I'll feel better so better get to it.

Good luck ladies, hope whatever we eat today, we will chew it thoughtfully and enjoy. Or as some crazy diet lady used to say, "stop the insanity".

Betty what is your ab workout routine? could use some of that, the part of me I'm laziest to excercise is abs, but it's real important, not just for appearances, even more for back problems

Drag, the ab thing I did is one of the our cable company's perks.  It's on one of their channels.  I hadn't done any abdominal-specific exercises in about a year, so that really tore me up.

I don't think I'm going to eat breakfast this morning; my sugar was really high when I got up.  And I'm meeting my sister for lunch in like 3 1/2 hours.  So if I ate now, I wouldn't be able to eat lunch.  I'll write later about what I ate for lunch this afternoon.

Oh, I don't exercise on the weekends.

Well yesterday I succumbed to the cravings. I went to the market before I ate lunch...big mistake! I bought the ingredients for the eggplant parm along w/cinnamon rolls...YUM! When I go home I had a cin. roll  and then made the eggplant. Turned out VERY GOOD! I ate that for lunch and then for dinner I had another cin. roll... :( :(

Yesterday I really just wanted to eat anything and everything. Good think I don't keep sweets in the house otherwise I would be in big trouble.

Monday I go back to work and I am going to incorporate my workout to the early evening. While I was on vacation I did it in the morning which was nice. I hope the change of time doesn't change my motivation.

Off to eat breakfast...should I eat my oatmeal or be naughty and have a cinnamon roll....? LOL

I don't think I posted yesterday and I can't remember what I ate  :-\

I had a coffee this morning and a 1/2 bagel and then took the kids to Chuckee Cheese and I had to slices of pizza.  Oh I remember going to CC's this morning was continuation to the b-day party we went to last night.  I had some little pieces of barb-q chicken there and some veggies and dip.  Big Mac on the way, no fries at least.


Does anybody eat/drink anything with aspertime (sp)? in it?  My fathers friend who is a vet told him that if it reaches a certain temp in peoples bodies and can turn to formaldahyde(sp)....that can't be good

aspartame or NutraSweet. I googled it. Pretty interesting stuff. I think that it isn't proven yet its theoretic still.

In general I don't use artificial sweeteners. I do on occasion though. For some reason I prefer sugar free Jello to the real stuff and most often if I drink Kool Aid I get the sugar free kind.

I'm a huge sugar junkie so I never go a day without a regular sugared soda or sweet tea.

I found a show we can watch that might curb our appetite.  It is on the travel channel and it is called Bizarre Foods with someguy I have never heard off.  They were showing cooked amardillo, feral pig, brains and drinking booger juice.......it looked so nasty!!!

I had turkey with mashed potatoes and peas for supper , a clemetine, 2 small peppermint patties and a tea for a snack.

I was watching some other show I can make you thin - I think.  They were saying something about putting down your fork after every bite and chewing sssssslllooooooowwwwwly.

Well, I won't be watching that show anytime soon.   I can barely stand to talk about such things. 

So far all I've had are a couple cups of coffee and a bottle of water.  I'll be going out to lunch today with a friend; I hope I can refrain from any binge-eating.  My sugar was high again this morning, so I don't think I will be eating anything before lunch. 

I really need to exercise in a few minutes.  I'm trying to force myself to do that because it will help with the stopping smoking.

OK.  I did exercise this morning.  A cardio/ab routine.  Then I ate 1/2 a cup of fruit.

For lunch, I had a salad (with blue cheese dressing) and a diet Pepsi.  Then I came home and ate two pieces of candy.  That's not anything I'm going to be giving up anytime soon.

Interesting thread. I guess I will add my 2 cents. The problem area for me is my tummy. I think it started with having 3 c-sections and went to hell from there. I heard when you have c-sections it is hard to build the stomach muscles back up due to that is where they cut. But I am 5'3 and weigh 171, it is all in my hips, ass, and stomach.

I can't do crunches because of lower back problems so not sure what to do really. My eating, well, even with puffing, I still think I eat pretty healthy. I love salads and veggies. When I go shopping I get mainly those things and every so often some chips but I get the ones with no trans fat. My downfall would have to be Pepsi, steak, and prolly some starchy foods like rice and potatoes which are my fave.

For the most part, I am only eating once a day when I don't have things here to munch on. So not really sure if I am eating healthy or not.

Well here goes another day of starting out ok and then being a little bad

Breakfast:
1 bowl of Special K
1 slice of whole wheat toast

Once I got to school I found some Easter candy on my desk from last week so of course I couldn't let that go to waste... ;) For snack I had an orange and part of a sugar cookie

Lunch:
Taco Bell...I know, I know- I had a beefy melt, fiesta potatoes, and a Dr. Pepper.

I did workout after work though so that is good. I just don't want to give up my food...

Betty you sure are doing good with your exercises. I also don't think you should give up your candy.
I like this thread. It kind of keeps me accountable and it is kind of fun!

I had a coffee this morning while my mother and I were driving around.  She is having a test tomorrow so couldn't eat anything but jello and I felt bad and didn't want to eat anything in front of her.  I had raisin bran about 2, before supper I had a handful of chips, for supper spaghetti and one meatball( I never make spaghetti and meatballs for some reason they gross me out, that and meatloaf.ICK..) Gave the rest to the kids usually it is the other way around :) , one roll. I had parmesean cheese on the spaghetti.  I just had one of those cottage cheese things that you mix raspberry something in with.

Viv- You and Betty and Drag are doing good working out.  The only lifting I do is 30+ lbs of kids in and out of car seats 4x a day...Does that count?  :)

I ate some Doritos, 7 pieces of candy and a Little Debbie last night.  Needless to say, when I got up this morning, my sugar was 366 (!).  That doesn't happen very often.  It shouldn't happen at all.  Not sure when I'll eat today, but I've given myself the appropriate Insulin to bring my sugar down and I'll be exercising again.

Last night I polished off the bag of Doritos and had 4 pieces of choclate.  This morning my sugar was 404 (yeah, I know, dangerous).  I've resolved not to buy anymore Doritos.  The chocolate, well, that's another story.  Haven't eaten breakfast yet, but I plan on 1/2 a bagel, 1/2 a banana, and a small glass of milk.  I will be exercising this morning as well.

Hello G/F's

As you all can see I dont contribute much to this thread. I am 5'7 215lbs. I wear a size 14 jeans. I like my weight, my only problem is my stomach area. It seems like every since i start my meds my stomach is gaining weight. SOme of it may be baby fat to. My DD is 20 months and I have had c sections. Any who im not much of the dieter. I love my junk food. but I do get my crucnches in and my Taebo 3 days a week. I dont eat breakfast, which I need to. Yesterday I didnt have breakfast, Lunch I had Tacobell and Dinner I had a bacon and cheese potatoe with a cranberry strawberry juice. I think that was all for yesterday.

Today: so far no breakfast and nothing to snack on just yet.

Last night I ate 1/2 cup bbq baked beans, 1/2 cup cottage cheese and 1 cup fresh fruit.  And, of course, 4 pieces of Fannie May candy.  This morning for breakfast, it'll probably be cereal, fresh fruit, and maybe 1/2 a bagel.  We'll see and I'll check back in later, definitely.

Well since I have been back at school my eating has gone downhill...can we say STRESS! I eat more at work then at home!
Yesterday-
B:
1 bowl cereal
1 hashbrown
coffee
S:
piece of cake (a teacher brought it in)
1 dougnut ( a student's birthday)
L:
chili cheese dog
tator tots
3 strawberries
S:
couple hanfuls of cheese popcorn
D:
Pasta

Just thinking about what I ate is disgusting! Wish, I agree with the medicine and weighgain. I have done nothing but gain weight this last year. I have never weighed as much as I do now. I am going to the doctor on Friday and am bringing this up. I'll let you know what I learn. What meds are you on? I am taking Atripla.

Well, yesterday for lunch I went to an authentic Mexican restaurant and had a chicken burrito and some chips and salsa.  Then I had a strawberry danish from one of the bread shops.  For supper I had a Healthy Choice meal.  Then for a snack, of course, a few Fannie May chocolates.  Since I don't have anymore Doritos (and am resolved not to buy anymore) my sugar has been holding pretty good.  I'm also going to exercise this morning.  For exercise yesterday, I walked the length of the mall here.

I had a ham and cheese sandwich and some sweet potato fries for dinner on the 2nd. Billy's 49th birthday. The place we ate at sucked. Not going there again. Probly would have been better if I'd picked something more adult like to eat. LOL But all around it sucked. Waitstaff ect. 

I ate more of that Chef Boyardee crap yesterday. Its quick and its so nasty I like it. LOL
I was feeling like crap yesterday towards dinner so I had Billy take me to a Rice Bowl place around the block from our house. I ate 1/4 of my order which was teriyaki chicken with steamed rice and zucchini. About an hour after that I had 4 strawberries.

I ate the rest of the teriyaki chicken for breakfast. I'm thinking about slow oven baking BBQ chicken for dinner.

Well, for breakfast I ate 1/2 bagel w/ cream cheese and 1 cup fresh fruit.  For lunch I had a chicken sandwich that had mushrooms, cheese and grilled onions on it w/ a side of bbq sauce and a few fries.  I did exercise this morning.  Don't know what I'm going to have for supper yet.

Well today was another bad food day. I have come to the realization that I am a definite stress/emotional eater. I eat more at work because of the stress and then when I get sad I want to eat. I had a bad day at he doctor and I just wanted to get a big cheeseburger and fries. I ended up going to Jack In the Box and getting 2 tacos. I still want to eat something else...definitely the emotions controlling me...

OMG Jack in the box tacos? I'd be crapping for a week LOL Those things are deep fried ya know?

I had 1/4 of a breast of chicken, maybe less. a serving of mac n cheese and cauliflower with cheese.
Guess today was a cheesy day for me.
I also had a couple of cupcakes. Yellow cake with chocolate icing. But I scrape off most of the icing cause I don't like it as much as the cake.
I always do that. When i was a kid I'd eat the cake and my brother would eat the icing.

I get alot of empty calories from soda too. I drink 3 or 4 cans a day.

Guess thats why I stay at 160 pounds.
I wonder if I had a tummy tuck if I would maintain my new weight with no effort.... Not that I can afford one, I just wonder.

I haven't eaten much for the last few days.  I still cant' taste anything so what's the point?  I still get in my chocolate milk, vitamens, and meds.  For breakfast, I had a biscuit (scone) and some OJ.  For lunch, grilled chicken and a roll.  Dinner: ham and crackers.  I feel like I've snacked on meds all day long.  I also haven't been doing my exercises other than dance class on Monday night which I spent most of the time trying to breathe and not pass out.  I've decided that breating is over-rated. ;)

Does anyone else get ravenous before they get their period?  I sware I could have eaten a horse this weekend!  I ate a bunch of crap, chinese food, burger king, pizza, I hate this time of month.  Although, since it has come I am not hungry at all, I have just had 2 cups of coffee.  I hope to get out today and walk somewhere maybe at the local park, there is always the question of safety which pisses me off that I even have to think about around here.

I haven't noticed any changes in my food with my period. I just started mine. I guess I was just lucky last month. I know ya'll don't remember but I started a new birth control pill and last month when it was time to take the placebos I didn't have a period I just had one day of a light pink show when I wiped. The bleeding isn't has heavy as without the pill but there is a shit load of clots.
I know, nasty. Who wants to hear the details on my period? LOL  Nasty but still its a fact of life when you have a uterus.

Maybe that will ruin out appetites and we wont shove another swiss roll, twinkie or bonbon in our mouths.  ;D

Betty, it's briliiant you dont smoke. Your food for today sounds great, yummy.
I have been off this thread since going to Italy. Italy foodwise was heaven, but I didn't gain weight. The food is such top quality. I bought some things in the supermarket and even crackers (for lack of a better word) compared to the Dutch or Spanish version, even the supermarket brand, are top. They just don't put all the usual shit in the food, not even processed food, like E-something something, preservatives, refined oil and all that crap. Everything tastes amazing, from a tomato to the ice cream to the pizza, pasta... anyway I don't mean to make you guys drool, just pointed out that when you really really enjoy food at normal quantities, at least I don't gain weight. The problem for me is not so delicious food and emotional/stress eating...

Anyway I have tried to eat pretty healthily since back with lots of salads, but I still do the night vices. And not the right kind of vices either. My goal is to excercise at least every other day. I'll post what I ate later, I can't fully remeber yesterday.

OMG.  Last night, I ate strawberry shortcake, a Twinkie, several strands of licorice, a chocolate covered cherry, and some bbq baked beans-all within 2 hours of each other.  When I got up this morning, my sugar was 343. 

I was having some pretty heavy psychological withdrawal from smoking yesterday, so I'm blaming that.  I will be exercising this morning.  I missed doing that yesterday.  I always feel better when I do.  I don't know if I'll eat anything this morning.  I took my fast-acting Insulin, but it still takes awhile for a blood sugar that high to return to normal.  Oh well, today's another day.

I cant remeber any previous days, but today so far I had oatmill, honey & 2 instant coffees for breakfast, a large carton of light probiotic drink around 11:00 (the only product in which I take asperatam or as you guys know it, splenda), small salad with egg & mayo stuff & small bowl of pumpkin-tomato soup for lunch, 2 cappucinos, and just now (16.00) a bag of raw mini-carrots and a tub (200 gr) of tzaziki. we'll prob eat out tonight. I made this desert of whipped cream, white chocolate, cookies and strawberries in red jello last night, really over the top. I ate only a little of it, I know I am tripping myself but wanted to make something nice for the BF whose had the flu lately. There's still most of it left.

Wish, good going on the eating, I'll have some green tea now.

Betty, today's a new day. I understand sugar-wise this was quite a binge but calorie-wise, in my standards it doesnt even come close  ;)

Kind of very garlicy Greek dip from yoghurt, with olive oil, vinegar dill and TONS of garlic mixed in. Not exotic here but off the supermarket shelf. It's 17.57 here, almost leaving work. Another unproductive day (sigh)

Drag, that dessert you made sounds heavenly!  And that tzaziki sounds wonderful also.  I'm like Wishful, I absolutely love garlic!

For dinner, I'll probably have a big salad, maybe a garlic breadstick and maybe some bbq baked beans.

Dinner: takeway from a Surinamese restuarant: basically friend rice, beef and fried hard boiled egg with the spiciest chilly sauce ever. big salad on the side and some bread to kill off the chilly. Desert: bit of last night's but I found it too sweet so ate a little and then some type of yoghurty strwaberry desert

I guess that to get serious with this new lifestyle desert should not be more than a fruit. but i do love cooking. i know this is not for this thread, but imagine the feast we'd all cook if we got together one day...

Thought it might be interesting to compare what I eat with what others do here -  I have no idea what a Twinkie is - heard of it but do not know what it is?

Here we go:
i do not eat breakfast - so two cups of tea with soya milk and one sugar

( I am intolerant to all cheese and related products so can not eat any cheese, yogurt, anything with whey protein in it or sour cream or sour milk, slightly intolerance to milk so only have milk in cooking or as part of an ingredient in a bought item)

Husband ate crunchie nut cornflakes and tea with milk

Dinner - thin slice of ham  with avocado with balsamic vinegar
Husband - large ham sandwich toast and jam later

Evening meal  - Full English roast dinner as its Sunday i.e Roast pork with apply sauce and gravy, roast potatoes, sprouts, cauliflower, runner beans, roast parsnips and Yorkshire puddings ...

strawberries and cream after

Sounds a lot but I only eat tiny portions of it .

My husband and my daughter eat about twice or three times what I do and they are both thin, yet I am overweight. My husband was never anything but slim but with HIV he has waisting, so is now very thin.

But my 18 year old daughter is very healthy, eats like a horse yet is very slim

Wishful, you're going to start going to the gymn this week?  Good for you.  Let me know how it goes.

Well, I'm back to wearing the nicotine patch after a weekend of smoking like a chimney.  I exercised this morning. For breakfast, I had cheerios, 1/2 bagel w/ cream cheese, and 1/2 cup pineapple. 

I hope I can achieve some weight loss/toning, but I seem to lose the luster to do it come nighttime.  Just keep trying I guess.

Dry toast & water for brekkie? talk about discipline! and holding off at a buffet? wow. sorry I havent been writing in this thread, truth is I've relapsed to eating a lot of food and I dont feel comfortable recalling it. I have been good about working out though.
Veritee your menu is mouthwatering...

I will try to update about the food more, at least write in Word and paste it

Betty good luck with the patches and Wish with the gym

For dinner today, I had eggplant parmisagn, a piece of garlic bread, and a Breyer's light ice cream bar.  Then I had a piece of candy.  Still no smoking.

Well, I did a Jillian Michael's workout; well, most of it anyway.  When I was done, I was sure that my flesh would separate from my bones. 

For breakfast, cheerios, 1/2 bagel w/ cream cheese, and strawberries.  Oh, and water.  Still no smoking.

Wow Wish, 8 lbs?  Good for you.  I wish I could lose some weight.  Of course, maybe with the recent bout of diarrhea I'm having, I'll get lucky. :D  By the way, what are wing dings?  Chicken wings?

OK, I started smoking full-time again.  I guess I'm not really 'ready.'  I will be again, I know I will.  It's just not the time right now. 

Last night, I had some Triscuits and a twinkie.  If I could only give up my late-night snack cakes, I'd be doing so much better.  This morning I'll have some Cheerios, 1/2 a bagel and some pineapple or strawberries.  I have some bagged salad in the frig that I need to throw out.  I go in spurts with salad-some days I can eat one, some days I can't.  So it turns out to be futile for me to buy salad, as I always end up throwing it out.

Betty: yeah the chicken wing portions..i baked them for the kids but they looked so good i had to eat 2....not too bad ..i didnt cook them in any added oil...OH NO for the smoking... :(..but you have done it before and u will do it again...i only smoked cigs for a year..and i started cus my ex smoked...i got rid of him and the cigs..im glad i didnt do it for long or else it would be way harder to stop...im the same way about salad bags..when i am dieting like now, i used them bags up..but when i am not n im tryin to start back dieting..they waste..cus salad can be boring if u dont have time to make them interesting...i bought these vacuum like packs of albacore tuna..they are really good for salads....yeh..im hoping to lose about 35-45 altogether and keep it off...i havet started the gym yet..but those pills def have given me more energy..when i go home instead of layin down..i start doing something, cleaning, organizing..or whatever..so that has def helped...

My supposed healthy diet has gone totally awry.  I'm thinking only a miracle could save it.
