Great thread idea. Here goes my today:

Green tea - 3 cups over the day (just one teabag though)
2 tall glasses of water
1 can of lentil soup
Chicken stir fried over onions with one fresh tomato

Good start from everyone. I'm very glad to have so much company.

What's in Vegamite? We 'mericans only know the word from singing "Who can it be now?" during Karaoke nights.

I love Rachlette cheese....I should never order it from the grocery. It comes. I cube it up and before I know it, 'tis gone.

I think I'm done with food for the day.

2-3 cups granola
2 cups almond milk
16 ounces of black coffee

2 14 ounce glasses of water

maybe 3 cubic inches of cheese (mozz and manchego)

2 tofu dog corn dogs (some protein and iron, lots of sodium)
2 handfuls of dry pasta (didn't measure it cooked)
1.5 tablespoons pesto
2 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 handful of chopped fresh basil and parsley

10 ounces tequila and limeade
(I'll probably have another one of those and another glass of water before bed)

No point in weighing my self again.

Day 2.

Thanks to everyone for the calorie counting websites. I'm checking them out.

So, I made a couple of errors yesterday.
1) I didn't write things down AS I ate them. That is supposed to be important and is because I had to spend several minutes recalling what I ate in the afternoon.

(I was just about to call in the boys from Guantanamo when I confessed.)

2)I went restaurant searching and found one.

3) I asked what was in Vegamite and was told..... yeast extract.
Hm. Ah. I guess if I were starving, maybe on a raft lost at sea and I had already eaten the entire Wilson soccerball....

Anyway, not a good day for me. Partly because of the day before, but still... .

two eggs
2 huge magaritas
Plate of Nachos w/ shredded chicken
(cheese, chips, guacamole, tomatos, peppers - very salty)

Yesterday was farmer's market day. I shoulda skipped the muffin. I asked for a bran muffin, got it home and discovered it was white flour, tons of sugar and a couple blueberries. I should have given it to one the girls. I ate half of it instead. The fresh blueberries, red pepper, radishes and sweet corn were all delicious -- I think I could be a vegetarian in the summertime.

first thing - 8 oz cranwater with 1 TBS ground flax seed
coffee - black, unsweetened

breakfast - 1/2 large blueberry muffin, 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

lunch - egg salad sandwich

mid-afternoon - red pepper strips with hummus

pre-dinner - 2 j-ritas (12 oz lime seltzer, splash of margarita mix, 1-2 oz tequilla)

dinner - leftover salad nicoise with hard boiled egg and radishes added, 2 ears fresh sweet corn

snack - english muffin with butter (shoulda skipped that too)

Yeah, chocolate rice krispy bars...

Had a weird eating day yesterday, marked by a) really needing to go grocery shopping (will do today) and b) going to a party/cookout.


Breakfast: Bowl (2-3 cups?) of Honey Nut cheerios with 2% milk, water to drink.

Snacks/ lunch (I never put a proper lunch together, just ate a bit of this and a bit of that until I wasn't hungry anymore -- sozlet got a proper lunch with remaining proper-lunch ingredients): Pickles, crackers (low-fat, from Trader Joe's), ~4 slices of pepperjack cheese, a slice of plain bread, orange juice, apricot, water.

Dinner: Hamburger with just mustard (a little girl was taking forever with the ketchup), fruit salad, veggie salad, some tortilla chips, water, and a brownie.

I'd recommend, if you're trying to lose, to only weigh once or twice per week, and not every day. Women, particularly pre-menopausal women, have a lot of fluctuations, and really everyone does, not just because of food and exercise but also due to the weather (more or less sweating). Plus if you go to once or twice per week you're more likely to weigh at what's closer to the same time and under the same conditions (me, I weigh Monday AM, just got up, after first, uh, ablutions but haven't eaten anything yet, may have sipped a little water to take thyroid pill but nothing else, plus wearing skivvies and maybe a top but no pants or shoes). For maintenance, though, it does make sense to weigh more often because you can catch yourself before you possibly backslide a lot, plus it can represent a renewed daily commitment.

Breakfast: Cheerios Cereal, 1 cup
Mixed fruit, 0.5 cup
Bread, whole wheat, 2 slices
Jam, 1 tbsp
Jif Creamy Peanut Butter, reduced fat, 1 tbsp

Mixed greens salad (14 oz)
Feta Cheese, 0.5 oz
Bread, pita, white, 0.5 pita, large (6-1/2" dia)
Roasted Vegetables, 0.5 cup
White Rice, medium grain, 0.5 cup
Sour Cream, 1 tbsp

Dinner: Couscous, 1 cup
Skim Milk, 1 cup
Mixed greens salad (14 oz)
Halibut, 4 oz
Asparagus, 4 medium (5-1/4" to 7" long) spears
Salt-free homemade guacamole, 1 Tablespoon

Snack: Mixed fruit, 1 cup
Stonyfield Farm Fat Free Chocolate, 6 oz

Jespah, I'm with you all the way on weighing. You don't need to do it everyday, but forget " the skivvies and maybe a top" stuff. Weigh just you. Then you can't think "Um....this is a mightly heavy cotton tee-shirt." Very Happy

Had a good day. A nice run in my new shoes. Kept my mouth shut most of the time.
