Ginas Food Diary

Hi Friend,
I'm running low of motivation at the moment so i thought if i do a weight loss diary to help motivate me. I decided to really shape up after new years. I did two weeks of LT which was sooo hard and since then I've been on maintenance but because money is low till payday i have hardly any maintenance products left till monday week.

About me:
I'm 21 female from Dublin. I work in IT sitting at a desk all days answering calls :( .When i first got weight at new years i weighted 195lbs and I'm 5ft 11. I was shocked i had it in my head for ages i was only around 180lbs. I lose weight really quick on LT and it was scary i started to look so slim i even freaked my friend out she couldn't believe the results especially in my face.

My past:

COMFORT EATER! I'm holding my hands up! Started when i was a teenager and had a hard time being a teenager. Addicted to fizzy drinks(at one stage i drank 2L a day. Addicted to crisps, chocolate and processed foods. I was a vegetarian for 2 1/2 years and have returned a meat eater since new years (I love it!).

My Plan:

- Increase my exercise
- Eat Healthy
- Lose 8-14 more lbs and keep it off.

My Weakness:

-hungover days
-chocolate / crisps
-chinese food

I hope i don't bore anyone with this if i already have i'm sorry :(

I hope everyone who is losing weight the best of luck and to be happy :D

I'm just going to try post everyday what I've eaten and my exercise. Please comment me to inspire or advise me. I'm no saint and i do have weaknesses for certain foods which i'm trying to overcome!

Day One of my Diary


Today i was ok could have been better but i was good for not snacking too much but i should have had more fruit.

Breakfast 7:30am:

x1 Maintenance shake Summer Fruit the yummiest one. I could barely drink it was falling asleep monday mornings are a pain!

Exercise: 15min cycle to work around 2miles

Lunch 12:30pm:

We have a canteen in work which serves four different hot meals a day (Today it was bean cassarole, chicken -boneless, battered fish and spicy pork) i had the chicken, potato n carrots. It was yum but i hate eating in the canteen because you don't know how they are cooking the food (could be covered in butter).

Exercise: 20 mins cycle home after work which was uphill (so tough sometimes)

Dinner 6:15pm

Mum made dinner which was great i could chillax and watch TV. I had chicken(Again!), leeks, potato n onion bake (was kinda weird but i didn't want to mention it! :eek:) then i was bold TWICE in less than an hour i had a very small lampchop. Then with my tea i had a PENGUIN bar i hate when i think its ok till after i eat it and then i regret it.

A few cups of tea with low fat milk
x1 peppermint tea
A small yoghurt
Around 2-3 litres of water

Not a great day for Gina but perhaps tommorow I'll be better :)
Tuesday 19/02/2008 Not a very good day

Today I am not very proud of myself. I'm not looking forward to my weigh in 2moro. I seem to be really good but when i get home it goes out the window. I feel like i at least learned the ability to stop buying unhealthy food but when its placed in front of me i say i'll eat half and next thing its GONE!


Breakfast 7:30am:
x1 pear
x1 banana
I juiced these up with a drop of apple juice was quite yum and i hate pears

Mid-morning snack:
x1 mangarine

Fish and veg - don't really know what it was bits of salmon and cod with veg like carrot, onions, leeks, potato kinda like a stew.

Mid-Afternoon snack:
2x Ryvita sunflower crackers

20 minute cycle home from work

warning: it gets bad
x1 chicken brest skinless
