The whole point of joining Weight Watchers was to get a better handle on eating and exercising, and so far the whole deal seems to be working in reverse. Tacked on four pounds this week, despite getting more exercise in, and I'm pretty sure it's not from adding muscle mass. Well, I made some dumb choices this week; just have to get back on the horse and make better ones next week.

Good thing we ate semi-healthy food last night.

As in, you had the healthy. I had the semi. Pastrami tastes great, but dietarily I might as well have been eating Crisco with pork flavor.

whoops! Are you doing some sort of exercising as well?
Jun. 7th, 2005 05:52 pm (UTC)
Not enough...about a half-hour of walking per day, which needs to increase.

My latest attempt at dieting isn't going great yet either. I need to get back on the bike more regularly. At least I'm semi-recovered from my brother's multiple birthday meals on Fri and Sat. The cake's gone now as well.

I'm beginning to wonder if trying to cut down on the food and increase the exercise isn't going to be a fool's errand until after CONvergence. Oddly, my blood sugar levels have been exceptionally good these last couple of weeks...which usually means I'm eating right and ought to be losing weight, but it hasn't been working that way.

Lean Cuisine plus a small tossed salad (no cheese on it) and a side veggie serving and a slice of light-wheat bread 4 times a week for dinner is what I generally do to lose weight. The big thing for me is - no snacking, and no fast-food. Also at least 1/2 hour exercise per day (5-6 days per week) is another big part of my routine. Anything less than a 1/2 hour seems to be too little for me.

I may be doing that for dinner, and getting more regular about the sandwich & soup routine for lunch. All this eating out is really hosing things up...and skipping breakfast hasn't been helping.

Just make sure the sandwich is a fairly modest one. 1 lean meat, lettuce, tomato, veggies, no cheese, and no mayo.

Ah. So you mean a salad between two slices of bread, then, right?

With a couple ounces lean meat, yeah. I see a lot of chicken and turkey in my future. :(

But a salad has dressing and that's right out of the question! Kevin is right in going with the no fat dijonaise instead. It surprising how it's really the little things that put on the weight moreso than the main meal.

I only made a few minor trims to my eating habits last year and I lost 30 pounds, and I have only put back on about 5 pounds in a year's time. I'm exercising more now and should rapidly get back down to what I was at without a lot of effort. I've never done any of the fad diets either. I've just watched my portions, exercised, and cut out unhealthy snacks.

Yeah. Not even Hellman's light mayo is worth it; I'd switched to Dijonnaise, which despite the name doesn't have any fat content and tastes better (to me) than regular mustard.
