OK, I'll get us started with a big GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. I knew last week was bad. I knew I felt a little porky. But I had no idea I'd <b>gained</b> 3 pounds!<br><br>
Oh helldamnspit, as my 10th grade English teacher used to say.<br><br>
And a new week begins.<br><br>
B - Mojo bar, Trader Joe's fig bar<br><br>
Yogurt in a few minutes.

Thanks for starting, <b>Theia</b>...<br><br>
I am disappointed to be a <b>+1</b> today. I had a feeling, but it's a bummer because I was reasonable in all my eating choices this week. Not perfect by any means, but reasonable. That should be worth at least a <b>-1</b>, right?!?<br><br>
We'll see how today goes - I've been up since the crack of early and that always makes food more tasty.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Okay folks.<br><br>
I... am.... in.<br><br>
There. I said it, and committed to it.<br><br>
I have developed really crappy eating habits. Not necessarily eating huge huge meals, but snacking a little here, a little there. Making not-very-good-at-all choices for lunch, and so forth.<br><br>
Well, since being benched (which I figure is going to continue for another couple of months, at least), I've gained what little bit of weight I'd lost while running. Between that, and seeing my muscle definition totally disappear in my legs, I finally decided that I had to do "something" that was in my control, at least, regarding body size and overall health.<br><br>
So.. here I am - making a committment to try to eat better than what I have been, and to try to lose some weight in the process. Since Friday, I've been keeping a food journal of my own, and all I can say is OMG, I'm much more aware of what goes in my tummy now. I signed up on that calorie counter website (referenced last week), and according to it, I need to stay under 1350 cals per day. I didn't realize how hard that "could" be. Jeesh. I guess this is just like training for a race.. taking it one day at a time, and striving for a goal that may take months or even years to achieve.<br><br>
Anywho... I am not one to come here and report daily food intake, most likely. (though I may change my mind on that one) Nor do I particularly want to list how many lbs I'd like to lose, becaues that number seems to be much larger than what most of you guys want to achieve. Maybe when I'm halfway there, I'll be a bit more brave. heh. Therefore, I'd like to sort of be a 'phantom' participant, if that's okay with you guys. I know you all won't necessarily know the details, but being part of this group will, I think, help to keep me on a track that I've needed to be on, for a while now.<br><br>
Unless there's some funky iniitation rituals for phantom participants. Then I gotta hear the deal before I dive in head-first! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

I am holding steady, I am surprised I don't have a gain to report. Yesterday I took my eat anything day a little to literally. I had m&m's, a cookie, the list goes on and on. Back on the wagon today.

Morning!<br>
Well the weekend was good, and it was bad. I am <b>-1.4</b> so Yeah! But I did not make very good food choices for dinners... I suppose that's what happens at a backyard party. Alcohol = empty calories.<br><br><b>Ailarie</b> - You don't have to post numbers, but you should come and check in each week so we can give you the love you deserve! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

Mornin' all.<br><br>
I'm the same as last week.<br><br>
bfast: kashi waffle w/1T peanut butter<br>
snack: greek yogurt(!) w/a pint of blueberries and 1/2 c TJ's lowfat granola<br>
lunch: 1 head romaine w/a dozen cherry tomatoes, some lentil sprouts, and a couple of mushrooms<br>
dinner: dunno yet, but it will probably involve tofu and broccoli.<br><br>
There will undoubtedly be more food in there somewhere, I ran 9 this morning and it's eventually going to catch up with me!

Down a pound, give or take some ounces. I must burn more calories than I think, because I didn't think my defecit was big enough to lose this week.<br><br>
Today was supposed to be a jury trial, so I only had a slimfast shake for breakfast. Too nervous for actual food. But we got rescheduled.

I am refusing to even get on the scale after this weekend. We went away and I ate ice cream 3 times in two days. Plus a lot of other stuff.<br><br>
Today I will start anew.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
In all honesty, I would like to just keep it under control for a couple of weeks and then really start the crack down.

I was a bit surprised seeing as how I was on the scale Wednesday of last week and today I am down <b>1 lb.</b> Not complaining, Ill take it.<br><br>
I was looking at my 4 ten pound ribbons I got while with Weight Watchers a few yers ago. It only took me from 12/13 to 4/20 to lose 40 lbs. Did I ever have some will power just 3 years ago. Id like to think I could do it again but with training for Philly starting today I dont think itll happen.

No gain or loss for me acourding to the scale. I had a few bad days last week, but I guess not bad enough to cause a gain. I bought groceries for the whole week so I have healthy stuff to last until Friday when I go shopping again. I will be better this week because of it.

Hey folks. THis is my first check in. Was too short on time (and/or lazy? Sorry. Is that bad??!) to read the other long thread from last week, but I still want to join. Not sure what my actual numbers are because I have a very inaccurate analog scale and no access to a real digital one.<br><br>
I would love to be a size 8. That's the longterm goal. 2 sizes away now. Don't know how many pounds that would be (20?) My tummy looks like 3 mo. preggers though. And my thighs. Boo. I keep hoping they will firm up after all this running/weight training but still nothing. I think I've pretty much maintained my weight this summer. I know I lost something, however, because of all the comments I received when I went back to school (even the (female) principal! That was nice!)<br><br>
I've been stress eating a bit lately with school starting. Trying to get into a good eating routine since my lunch time is so late now. Still working that out.<br><br>
Congrats to everyone on their weekly successes, though! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Hey all...a little late reporting.<br><br><b>Welcome Beth!</b><br><br>
I most certainly have eating issues. Let's see, yesterday...<br><br>
B - Bagel w/lite veggie cream cheese<br>
L - salad with grilled chicken and parmesan dressing<br>
D - (this is where is all goes wrong)<br><br>
I stopped by the Mexican place after work and picked up an enormous to-go order of chips, guacamole, tasty chicken thingys. I wasn't hungry, but I just felt compelled to eat whatever I wanted.<br><br>
But I made myself wait until I had exercised for a full hour, taken a shower - and then the food was cold (I'm in a hotel room w/no microwave) so I didn't eat all of it.<br><br>
Dude, I'm crazy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
I'm feeling good today, though, I expect the only accidental bad eatings will be completely minor.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Hey guys and dolls ...as I mentioned last week, I won't be able to really try for weight loss until my marathons are over but I do think I'll post my food intake here to keep myself accountable. It's way too easy to overeat and make not-so-great decisions when you're ravenous. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"> So anywho...<br><br>
B: Plain non-fat yogurt with blueberries, venti coffee<br>
S: Banana, nectarine

D: baked italian chicken strips, veggie of some sort.
