what up peeps

 

Spending my morning washing the sheets (we have a CA King so it is always a JOB) and rolling over my HSAs from my last job - company was sold so I have 2 to roll in.  Fun times. 

 

Hubs will be out all day and his boys are here.  Fortunately I don't have to do anything lol

 

It's supposed to be nice today.  Might do a bike ride at some point.

 

Bloated from salt overload.

I start the month with a weigh-in of 118 lbs (8 stone 6 lbs) a loss of 2 lbs since Wednesday. This is the lightest I've ever remembered being!

Been logging my food intake, keeping calories to around 1,600 a day plus exercising so that I have a good deficit each day, which allows for a couple of treats.

I'm really feeling the benefits of the isometric and planks workouts I'm doing too. Noticed a slight change in body shape and I feel leaner and stronger.

I expect to go back up a couple of pounds by my next weigh-in on Wednesday, but if I can maintain for the month around 119-121 I'll be happy.

I would love to go down 5kg this month. That would put me at 50 kilos. Think I'm being unrealistic though 😔

Hi guys! Yea for May!! I’ve been shopping at thrift stores and good will (I’m a cheapskate) to find.......drum roll......smaller clothes!! Woohoo!!! I am really starting to feel SO much better!! After menopause I got up to 140.......today I weighed in at 115.8! Boy was I happy! I’ve still got a ways to go.....but I’m losing fat and inches! I weigh every day, and on the first of the month I take measurements. Just this past month I’ve lost 1 1/4” off my thigh, 1 3/4” off my hips, 3 1/4” off my spare tire, 3” off my waist, 2” off my boobs, and 1” off my arms. I’ve been eating very healthy, and only eating 1 meal a day. I have coffee for breakfast and coffee for dinner.

Yay summer! I weighed in at 123.5 this morning. Uhg! I've been eating high fat and not counting any calories. I will keep this up a few more weeks just to see what the result is. I would love to get down to 118 this month.

Well I was 136.8 this morning which is a number I've been many times before. I know "set-point" is some bullshit but really this seems to be the intersection between my activity level and the general amount of food I eat when I'm not in a restriction mode. 

 

I didn't count calories or anything last month so this month that's back. Also I'm very determined to liquidate off all my possessions so that's also another goal. So I'm setting the goal as photographing 3 items after work on work nights and editing the pictures then on my day off I'll list. Honestly I don't have that much by way of items worth that much as I'm poor and always have been however getting rid of everything is part of my bucket list so I'm determined a I've adjusted my life timeline. I did kind of crunch the numbers and even if I sold everything I own I don't think I'd be able to raise the 30,000 I'd need to pay for a body lift so that's sad. Would have liked to have known what it was like to have a human body. I do believe in reincarnation though so I'm hoping to have a real body next time (and hopefully emotions, and the ability to love, and empathy and to be able to form human bonds and maybe a friend or even a lover). I am so stoked for my eventual death and hopefully new life after reincarnation.

branlew I've had the occasional mental affair with minimalism....if I ever find myself single again I could see it.  except I like shoes and clothes haha

 

chkinut I love thrift stores.  Price-wise, environment-wise, and selection-wise.  It helps me not buy so MUCH too.

 

Yesterday I did a TON.  Vacuumed the house and cleaned for an hour.  Washed the sheets and my laundry.  Got my two old HSAs rolling in to my new employer (that is a TASK pals.)  Did some yard work, raked the leaves off the flower beds (didn't bag them, because I can mulch them when i eventually  mow) and trimmed the dead parts off the roses and peonies.  Then went on a bike ride and did over 18 miles.  Expected to be sorer than I am. 

 

didn't weigh as i ate most of my cals when I got home, and I feel bloated.  So will wait.

I found you all! Yay. 

 

Happy to have May here. Picking up daughter at school this week so that's exciting. I didn't hit the goal in my head that I wanted to but I came damn close. Still on 2468 but last night at the movies it was red vines for the entire calories for the day. Then hubs wanted a cocktail so I went along and went over by 100 cals. Mad about that. Exact same weigh in this morning as yesterday so at least there's that. Been working a lot the last 4 days and I was so hungry today, had one short glass of wine at work (it's ok, I work at a winery, LOL) so it's a 200 cal day tomorrow. Those are the HARDEST! Thinking I might do laxatives/miralax tonight for a good cleanse.

I really admire how you stick to 2468. I wish I could do that! Your discipline is inspiring.

Out of curiosity sake I figured out the calories in the fat bombs I have been having. 680, which was less than I had thought. Since they keep me full for about 8 hours, that seems worthwhile. 

 

While measuring out my oils into a mason jar though, on the kitchen scale, my husband came home unexpectedly and I had to pitch everything into the pantry closet and quick shut the door. Geez, that got my blood pumping. How do you guys measure things without others noticing? 

 

No real news. 120.5 this morning.

Lately I have been doing equal parts MCT oil, coconut oil, and peanut butter. I microwave this so it all mixes well, then I add almond meal to thicken it. Sometimes I add protein powder if I want it to be sweeter. Sometimes I use ghee as one of the fats, sometimes I use flax meal or pecan flour as a thickener. 

 

Mostly I am trying to use of ingredients that I have in large quantities that will go bad in the next 6 month. Any healthy fat will do, including coconut cream, almond butter, avocado oil, any nut or seed ground up. 

 

The good thing about them, to me, is that they are very easy to throw together and easy to eat on the go. And they quash my appetite completely. The down side is that I miss getting hungry and being able to eat more regularly. I think they can support weight loss but aren't a silver bullet, obviously.

Thank you @Thaisa. The 200 cal days are the worst. I already had to have a piece of 70 cal toast this morning to fend off nausea but on these days it's a lot of water, tea and decaf coffee. Especially hard on days I work energy wise but easy because I don't have to explain anything to anyone. Today will just be a lot of hiding from hubs and then I have book club tonight and that's an easy "get away with" thing. Sneaky Sneakerson up in here. 

680 for a fat bomb isn't bad at all! Especially if it keeps you full for that long. You go girl.

 

Ya, hiding the food measurements isn't too hard for me - I do the bulk of the cooking and I'll put more food on his plate if necessary or use a bowl so he can't see that I have much less. What makes it hard again, is the going out. I did finally say something about how hard it is to know how food is prepared at a restaurant and that why I will almost always get a salad, because he asked. He doesn't know ED is raging inside me; he just thinks I'm hugely disciplined. Last time I relapsed we were dating and we had just broken up so he didn't see anything, just how thin I had gotten. Damn, why didn't I see how thin I was? 

 

Weight exactly the same for the 3rd day. :(

Well, I think that yesterday and today's food intake has been a disaster and I just need to re-focus and re-set tomorrow.   

 

Yesterday I had a lovely family meal which put me slightly over my calorie allowance, which I can cope with as my exercise calories were 486 which gave me a deficit of 354, but today...I ate half an Easter egg and only looked at the calories after I wolfed it down...1,058 calories for half an egg!!!! 

 

I feel absolutely disappointed in myself and feels like I have un-done everything I've worked hard for.  What's worse, is that I didn't even feel full after eating it and would have been much better off eating lots of proper food instead of rubbish. So I've spent most of the afternoon bouncing on my rebounder to burn off what I consumed in chocolate.  Total exercise calories today are 1,197 which, after my food intake, leaves a deficit of 400 calories for the day, but it just doesn't feel enough.  Can't wait until it's bedtime to just switch off, go to sleep and forget about today's disappointment.
