I was 155 this morning. These low calorie TV dinners and other prepackaged snacks really seem to work for me. Itís like Jenny Craig or nutrisystem but without the high prices.

Today I had the usual string cheeses I had when working. My coworker was drinking something from Starbucks that looked good. So when I clocked out I stopped at the drive thru and got a grande that had 140 calories. I had a mini lasagna for lunch that had 340 calories. For dinner Iíll be trying something new. spaghetti tacos Basically Iíll be cooking a spaghetti and meatballs lean cuisine and then putting It in a couple stand and stuff taco shells. I saw it on a TV show. That will have 400 calories. That leaves me with 160 calories. I might have some rice crackers.

156 this morning. I overate yesterday, but mostly on calorie dense items so it doesn't show on the scale right away. Anyway, I am trending down, which is good to see. I whine about how I can't seem to get out of this cycle of rolling forward and playing catch up but I do catch up and the goal is a deficit.
Tomorrow I will exercise, early and long, and probably clear my rolled forward amount and then get back to the *IF* I can eat normally for the remainder of he day. First I will have to see how much damage I do today...

I was 154.6 today. Iím under a lot of pressure and Iím dealing with a lot of stress and anxiety from work. Maybe thatís why the scales changing so fast.

Today I switched it up a bit and instead of the string cheese I had a laughing cow cheese/breadsticks snack thing that had 100 calories. For lunch I had a prime rib Cobb salad from Dennyís that had 810 calories. Give or take. You can never be exact on those types of things. Dinner will be a stuffed pepper that will have 200 calories.

I was 154 today. A couple more pounds and Iíll be at a new low. Thereís still a lot of stress and pressure from work. I had 1200 calories exact today. I was going to go out to lunch tomorrow to slow the weight loss and I have the day off from work.

I finally pushed it too far. I rolled over so much into tomorrow that i will be rolling into Friday first thing tomorrow. I weigh in the morning also. I will probably have bounced back up to 159.

157 this morning. Through a miscommunication, we have way too many bananas, so my plan for today is bananas all day. I did also just have cream of wheat when I had my meds; bread or cereal seems to help make sure I don't get a sour stomach.

I weigh 172 somehow, gaining the weight over a several day period. Since I could not use my stolen phone, I ended up eating more than I usually do. This included pastries. Still this is a big weight gain inside of a week. I would have had to be eating over 3000 calories each day. I find this difficult to believe. I will see what tomorrow brings.

I did eat some ribs with a thin coating of BBQ sauce sauce through the week, but only half slabs. I applied it only once while cooking it, with no extra when I ate the ribs. So maybe that will not matter as much. I am going to need to watch my calorie intake from now on in order to not gain anymore weight. I also will begin to exercse again.

I was still 154 today. I had a cheat day today. I went out to lunch and got some frozen custard and I had a mug of mint hot chocolate with milk. I wasnít very hungry for dinner.

I have my meals planned out for tomorrow. It will be around 1200 calories. I bought something called an aÁaŪ bowl. Does anyone know what that is? It sounds good. You heat it up according to the directions. It seems like some sort of sweet thing but only 210 calories for a decent size serving.

Good burn at the gym this morning, but so much rolled forward that I will still go over again early today.

Tomorrow's weigh in will be interesting. I feel like I have not been in good control of what I eat lately but have seen a slight trend down (maybe; could be timing making it look that way).

Donated some more baggy shirts and pants yesterday and picked up a couple of pairs of slacks while at the thrift store. One pair has a 30" waist. I tried on two pair of 29s. I was able to button them and breath, but the pockets were pulled open a little making it look like they were pants I was outgrowing. Sizes are all over the place. i donated a few pants that claimed to be 32" but were a lot looser than just 2" too big. I bought one pair of dress slacks that claim to be 32" but fit reasonably well. i need those for the company Christmas party.

I weigh 168 now. My weight dropped four pounds overnight. Water retention? A full colon that now has been emptied? Inaccurate scales? Who knows? I will exercise today. I have become incredibly lazy since pausing my exercise.
