45 days: day 22

Ugh. Not good. Not good. I lost it last night and ate a lot of stuff I should not have eaten. Cookies. Crunch Berries cereal. I am not happy with myself. Dammit! Couldn’t make it a week. I have to find a way to get through the nights off from work. They mess me up.

My weight is 179.6. I gained 1.2lbs since the last weigh in. Overall for my calorie counting week I lost a total of 2.8lbs. That’s not bad, but it could have been better.

45 days: day 21

3 weeks I have been taking the GNC Women’s Ultra Mega Energy & Metabolism supplements. It has helped curb my appetite a bit and that is enough for me. Especially at work. I am on day 6, I think, of counting calories and that has been going well. It would go a lot better if I didn’t obsess about it. It’s making me miserable. I can have a cookie, chips, a sandwich or ice cream if I want, as long as I stay within my set calorie limit, but I keep denying myself those things because I feel like it is cheating.  Sigh.

I went to the gym tonight and did 45 minutes on the treadmill, burning 314 calories. I weighed myself and am at 178.8. Who would have thunk it? Not overeating, counting calories and going to the gym is helping me lose wight. It’s a miracle!

I still want cookies.

45 days: day 20

Last night I broke down and had some cookies. I was craving bad and just gave in. There were some Lorna Doone cookies in my cabinet and I went to town. There were 6 cookies in the pack…210 cals. I was within my calorie limit, but still felt guilty.

I went to the gym and burned 221 cals. My weight came in at 179.4. Lost about 4oz since the last weigh in. Very happy that I am still in the 170’s. We’ll see what tomorrow brings. Another night off from work and o more cookies in my cabinet.

45 days: day 19

I WANT SOME COOKIES!

This sucks. I hate it. But it has to be done or I am going to be overweight forever. Anyway, day 5 of counting calories. It isn’t horrible, but it is annoying. I ended up slightly losing my mind last night and chewed an insane amount of gum to keep from gorging on cookies. I did eat a serving of Tostito round tortilla chips. I was within my 1,200 calorie limit, but it still felt like cheating.

Since it’s my night off from work I went to the gym earlier than usual and burned 254 cals. I weighed myself and am at 179.8lbs. Yay! 170’s.

 

45 days: day 18

Feels like I was just submitting an entry. Time goes by so fast. Day 18 of the supplements and day 4 of counting calories. Still doing it. My calorie intake is going to be the same as yesterday because I’m eating the same thing I ate yesterday.  No harm in that.

I hit the gym to do 30 minutes on the treadmill and I burned 245 cals. I keep upping the speed and incline. But only if I feel like I can take it. If I start getting too exhausted I will take it down a notch. I don’t want to be miserable.

Weight-wise I am currently at 180.6lbs. Chipping away at it.

I am still worried about tonight because it is my night off. I will be craving cookies like a mad woman. And having cookies would not be so bad if I could eat just one or two. Not twelve.

45 days: day 16

16th day of taking the supplements and the 2nd day of counting calories. Today my caloric intake was 1,135 and I burned 219 cals at the gym. I weighed myself and am at 182.0lbs.

I am doing ok fighting off the urge to eat when I’m not really hungry. I hope I can keep this up for the rest of the week. As long as there are no interruptions I will be fine. I just have to stay focused and on schedule.

45 days: day(s) 13 & 14

I’ve missed blogging for 2 entries. I kept forgetting. I have not missed any supplements, but I am becoming a little frustrated because I have not lost any weight. I am yo-yo-ing between 181lbs and 184lbs. I didn’t want to do it, but today I am going to start counting calories. Grrrr. 1,200 cals a day and then burn at least 200 at the gym.
