    Hi Everyone,

    Thought i'd start up a calorie counting diary, for anyone who needs food ideas, or also for anyone who wants to help me pin point the bad parts of my diet.

    A bit of background - I lost 4 stone between Jan 09 and Aug 09, stayed the same since then, and i'm on a re-start to lose my final 3 stones, before the summer. I lost my previous weight by eating 1000 calories a day (advised by doctor), and thats how I want to lose the remaining weight. I've tried Xenical and Slim Fast previously, Xenical didn't work as I have no fat in my diet and Slim Fast didn't work because I thought they tasted horrible. This is the only diet I know I can stick to, although it makes me hungry for the first week or so, I know that feeling goes away.

    I normally keep a food diary on my laptop but I got a new one 2 days ago and I've not been saving anything yet, because I dont have office, but I can remember my last 2 days intake.

    Please comment.

    Yay you've started a diary on here ( read your posts on claires diary)
    You're diet is very similar to mine altho I eat about 100-200 cals a day more.
    Well done on losing the weight last year and a huge good luck for the remaining 3 stone!
    Looking forward to following your diary :Dxx

    Hey,

    Thank you so much!

    Its only been this weekend i've been doing 1000 cals a day, last week I was around the 1200 mark, and didn't lose anything.

    I find my foods really boring. I've been thinking of ways to make my meals more interesting.

    Weigh in tomorrow, fingers crossed ;)

    Hi,

    Yeah it can be pretty hard going on this diet, but the more weight I lose the harder its coming off, so I need to be strict. Organisation is the key! lol I plan my shopping list and my meals at the same time, so that way there's no other option. I dont keep spare food in the house, I only have whats gonna be eaten.

    I dont think its about being lucky...I am absolutely desperate to lose this weight. I am trying to train my body into only eating when really hungry and i'm trying not to eat things that are really tasty...sounds a bit weird, but i'll over eat with anything that tastes good.

    Well, first weigh in was today and i've lost 2lbs this week, so i'm really happy, just hope I manage another week.

    Todays Food -

    Breakfast -
    Coffee x2 - 80

    Lunch -
    Sandwich & Chopped Pork - 300
    grapes - 40

    Dinner -
    2 Sausages (250) small amount of mashed potatoes (dont know cals, estimate around 150)
    3 freddo's :cry::cry: - 300 - Very bad

    Extras -
    Tea x3 - 120

    Total - 1240

    Very dissapointed with myself today, even after a good weight loss this morning, I was starving at 4pm, and couldnt resist the chocolate...the dinner...well it was literally all I had in the house, I dont even have a thing for later...going shopping tomorrow.

    Thanks for listening!
    ;)

    I've not kept a diary for the last 2 days, I am getting new windows fitted tomorrow, and i've been busy clearing stuff away from the windows, its taking forever, we need to stay with the stuff away from the windows untill Friday, because someone has to come back on Friday when all the glue and stuff has dried and paint it. Anyway....

    Because I've been so busy, I've been picking at things, got a massive box of jaffa cakes for the OH yesterday, and I think I had 5 yesterday and 3 today. I only had £15 to do my weekly shop for 3 ppl this week :eek: so i had to buy really cheap meals for all of us...i'm having soup 2 days and generally the only fat thing is chips anyway...i'll put down todays stuff.

    Breakfast
    Coffee - 40

    Lunch
    white roll, tuna mayo and grated cheese - 300 (approx)
    grapes - 40
    tunnocks tea cake - 90?

    Dinner
    Small portion of oven chips, 1/2 an individual chicken and mushroom pie, 1/3 tin of beans - 400?

    Snacks -
    Jaffa cakes x3 - 150
    Tea x3 - 120
    Snack a jacks - 100

    Total - 1240

    :)

    Hey Everyone.

    Not been keeping a diary over the last few days, I've had a really bad week with life in general, and with my diet.

    As you know I got new windows fitted this week. I have been working all week, so have been stressed out because every night there has been loads to do, and every night has been a late night. I've had so much going on. Plus last night had a big argument with OH, didn't think he would come home but he did and its fine now, but i've just not been myself.

    I am feeling quite low, so im not sure for definate, but I wanna start again as of Monday, with exercise included. I've not been really bad food wise this week, I am so thankfull that I dont have any junk in the house, or money in my purse or i'd be eating chocolate constantly. I've had the odd thing thats unhealthy, but i've been eating any meal, not caring about calories, and i dunno if thats whats making me moody, i always feel worse and blame myself for not sticking to diet.

    What do y'all think? Should i start afresh on Mon...will it help with me feeling so down? I dunno but maybe its worth a try.

    Yesterday was not too bad a day, I had 3 normal meals, only downfall was angel delight...a yorkie bar and 5 choc chip cookies (OH's)

    Today i'm planning to have

    Toast & Meat - 300

    Potatoes & pasta - 400? (need to work out cals in this coz i have it at least once a week)

    maybe a bowl of cereal or a banana. - 130

    ;)

    Hey thanks for that!

    I try and convince myself that i'm doing well, but in reality, i've only lost a couple of pounds in 5 months...i suppose i've done well in the sense that i've not had massive binges.

    I need strength to do this!! Maybe I should try on some clothes, that always cheers me up.

    Yeah good idea,

    But I just dont wanna stop. Food just makes me so happy, i hate the thought of having to limit my food.

    There's not much to get dressed up for and its still cold so i'm always covered up, but I know I need 2 do something now, before summer..I've got 3 stone to lose untill I'm at my ideal weight, surely I can do that for june/july - thats 5 months away.

    Its 2 weeks til my full year anniversary of my life change, and although i'm pleased with my loss so far, i've still not got the right frame of mind when it comes to food...when i started I really thought all my weight would be gone within a year..but its not.

    :(

    Thanks so much!

    Its hard not to hate yourself when you ruin your hard work. I suppose thats one of the hard parts of dieting...being able to pick yourself back up.

    I have been really good the last few days, gonna exercise 3x this week, and hopefully by next Monday i'll have lost something.

    For Today

    White Roll & Tuna mayo - 200
    Nutri grain elevenses - 160
    Coffee - 40

    Ready made prawn mayo salad - 211
    Tea - 40

    Cereal (special K) - 114
    Tea x 4 - 160

    Total - 925

    Hey,

    I'm actually feeling really motivated this week, I could sit and feel sorry for myself like I used to, but i've learned from that mistake! I used to think I could never lose weight, and recently I've been thinking the same, but of course I can...I still see flab so I CAN still lose more.

    I'm a few days into my 1000 cals a day, and the hunger is going away now. Well...its not away but its not as bad.

    Hows your diet going doodlelover?

    Today i've had -

    Coffee - 40
    Sandwich with chicken - 250
    Banana - 90

    Tea - 40
    Spaghetti Hoops and 1 slice of white bread - 300

    Cereal - 115
    Tea x 3 - 120

    Total - 955


    I also had a little bit of my daughters leftovers - but only a cpl of mouthfulls so i'm not counting it

    ;)
