<1600 calories - 1739, 1497, 1534, 1459, 2209, 1519
>64oz water - yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, not even close
>20% protein - 17%, 17%, 23%, 24%, 22%, 24%
walk on days off - worked, worked, 6k, don't know how far but was wandering downtown for 3+ hours, worked, walked to get groceries and run errands most of the day
weights/calisthenics on days off - worked, worked, no, no, worked, no

Posted two days because last night I was bad and felt really sick...let myself get too hungry after being good all day and stuffed my face with chicken parm and ravioli. Still, shows how good I was earlier that it only brought me up to 2209.

I've discovered that the difference in me getting my protein or not has been going back to my old breakfast from last year of Greek yogurt with a bit of All-Bran and some fruit mixed in. The added bonus is that I'm not super gassy all day. I'm thinking maybe my digestive system hates bread.

The only time I have to exercise at home is in the evening, and I've been really really tired in the evening. I have to figure something out for doing my weights. It made me feel so much stronger last year. I guess I just have to do it, but most of the time I can barely keep my eyes open. Getting more sleep would probably help.

I've had only minor issues logging (getting bumped out). It may relate to Time of Day and how busy the site is at any given time.

I also had trouble logging into site yesterday. I just came back later and it was fine.

I don't remember who mentioned watching Biggest Loser. I watched it last night and it was nice to see healthy living "in action". That what I think of as obsessive is actually how one has to be if they want to lose weight or maintain the weight that the lost. The one lady sent her food back. It showed that it's alright to tell friends that I can't eat that.

A friend of mine has been supportive of my weight loss. We talk by email as she works, has too kids and doesn't live in the same city as me. I wish I could offer her support too. She seems to be procrasinating. "I'll start working out after baby is born"--she is now 1 1/2.

5) stretch - yes no yes, yes, yes, yes

7) do not give up (writing, diet, health, etc.) ok with diet, the rest meh... gave up on everything (writing, diet, health) and then decided to turn it around positive, trying to heal, wrote antoher story, walked, meditated, yeah baby!!! ummm took a break... yes, no

Mike, regarding the pastries, I resemble that remark (that I was justifying.) I DO NOT eat pastries, only little cakes lol.

So excited I got Stanley!!!!! Trying to make nice plans for him though DH told me not to take him to Bourbon St last night (don't worry, he never came out of my bag, too seedy for him. Stanley is a good boy.)

Default It's spring!

So today was going to be a day off walking for me. I figured I did enough this week plus I had some stuff I needed to catch up (computer work) for work. But the sun shone for the first time in literally weeks and the wind was down so I couldn't resist a walk. First time in sneakers instead of winter boots yeah! Did another 3.16km puts me up over 25km for the week.

My husband, who is completely dependent on me for food right now is doing really well with his forced diet. He lost 15 pounds in the last 2 weeks. It took me 3 months!!

Darlene: want to do a walking goal for this week? Something reasonable with work lol. Anyone else? Takers?

Mike I changed my profile to classic and it seemed to fix the problem for me today!

Robin I would love to walk again this week I find it really motivating 10k is a good goal for me again if it works for you, with the time change I should get some evening walks in.
