Next Charm 92.6 lbs

I have such a busy weekend it is unbelievable. But the thing that strikes me as amazing is the fact that I do not drop down dead somewhere at midday.

Yesterday I lost my housekeys! And I had just picked up my new bicycle, done a truckload of groceries, and wouldn't you know it, Panicstations. I retraced my steps all the way, but no keys. So I picked up my spare keys at my friends, cycled back, cleared away my groceries, and then peddled back to the same friend for a lovely afternoon fo Cat, which by the by I lost ALL. I just do not have any strategic insight I think.

Today I got up leisurely, enjoyed a light breakfast, and cycled to Jannie, then Fred, and then Margreet, and was home by 5 PM. I can feel the strain on my knees, but I just know it will grow less and less if I cycle more.

Tomorrow I plan to cycle to work. About 5.5 KM, so I am curious how long it will take me. And I hope the ehather is not too bad. ANyhow, my bicycle is the BIZ! It has everything I would want. And I am so happy I found a place to tall my bicycle, because I had to drag it up one flight of starirs on both saturday and today and stall it standing on its rear end in my miniature hallway (3 x 3 feet!). Tomorrow I will get a new key to the door of the shed.................which I lost alongside all my other keys of course.

I had speculaas today, a famous dutch december treat. No idea how much it weighed, and so hard to calvculate how much I had. But it was very nice!

MIFFED!

I am miffed, angry, pissed, not happy. In all my past week was a good one, a very good one. I did not transgress ONCE. I did not use too many points, I had a lot of exercise, and I blinkin' GAINED 1,3 lbs!!

*sighs* Having said that I may as well add that I have used TOO LITTLE points at times, and my water intake was shoddy to say the last. This week I had 10 left over (near half a day worth of points), and that was after last nights extravaganza of 13 mindless "I don't care what I am eating" points. Funny thing is I passed the chipshop, and ignored the fried items inside, and had a binge on the WW items in my bag I just bought. So in all still a controlled binge.

Anyways, I WILL persevere. And just go on the way I am going. Next week I will get it off again.

As a side note if you look at the tickers for today, it looks slightly more optimistic. Reason? I have changed the target weight I have on there, and raised it by about 22 lbs. It seemed more realistic and attainable.

Next Charm 92.6 lbs

Christmas sprint, some calculating

My target is 277.7 lbs or 126 kilo's on December 25.
I have to lose 15 lbs or 6.8 kg in 36 days

The facts:
2 pounds of body fat is about 7000 calories, dus 15 lbs is 52500 cal
I need about 2000 cal a day (BMR), I use about 1000 a day. So I need to draw 36000 cal of body fat in that period just to sustain myself.

This means that I have to find a way to use up 16500 (52500- 36000) to reach my target. For me the way to do it is through walking.
This is equivalent of 458 cal worth of walking a day. At 5 km/hour taking into account my present weight, I use 500 cal/hour, so I need to walk an hour a day.

HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP!

So:

3 lbs a week (5 weeks)
188,888888888 gram a day! (36 days)

1000 cal food intake a day (WW) , and 1 hour of walking a day!

My dinner - two organic slices of rye bread, some mayonaise light, tomato ketchup, chinese cabbage, chives , tomato and on top of that grilled ready made (on sale) foil wrapped burgers, grilled peppers and grilled green asperges

Result: TWO BURGERS A LA MODE!

It was FANTASTIC. Weight watchers points value 11.5. And then just think of it, a quarter pounder is 12 points. Next time I will make sure the burger is oranic beef, and the whole thing will be a healthy wonderful dream of a dinner!

I was lazy when I woke up, well to be honest I was up till almost 2 AM! So I did not walk this morning. instead I walked this evening. I had to pick up some medication for my cat WIllemijne, and I decided to walk home. about 15 minutes, that paired to some other walking makes up something like 25 minutes. I seem to be suffering from stomach/abdomen cramps so I am just going to take it easy.

TWO HUNDRED DAYS


Can anyone imagine, it has already been 200 days! twoo hundred days of being more healthy, of being more active, of being more ME!

More by being less

Tomorrow I celebrate achieving this with my colleagues, I have baked a cake especially for the occasion. A chocolate cake, but one healthy enough to eat. One that does not ruin your day, or even week because I feel guilty. One slice is the eqiuvalent of 3 sandwiches all ready made with some meat or fish!

Today I walked for almost an hour. I was sbout to take the turn to walk back home, another 12 minutes to go. then I decided to keep on walking and made it an extended lap. Double in size! I am so proud of myself!

And you know what, i enjoyed it so much. Had Rebe Froger on my MP3 player, and that kept me going. Tomorrow morning I do my walk as well, I am tempted to say I won't do the hour walk. But well......I'll see, you never know I may just do it again!!

The good and active life

Friday night was a late night, i spent hours talking to one of my best friends, and we had a lovely dinner. Fireplace going, what more would I want?

And then today, a FUN day, and the odd thing is the fun is in the walking and the activity. I went to a fair with Margreet today, and bought alovely christmas dinner set, some new ankleboots (cream white), an olive dish with cute small forks decorated with a little olive, a herb pot to put my kitchenherbs in, and two rather nice oil on canvas paintings for in my room.



Worried about food, not me any more!

While there I enjoyed some gluhwein, and even an oliebol (literal translation is oilball). And I did not worry about doing something wrong one moment. I knew and was confident that I could fit it in. Instead of worrying the waffle and olieball, washed down with some lovely gluhwein where my lunch!

I went to visit an old friend I had not seen in years and we sat down for tea, after which I walked to the shops and got all the things for my cake. Because I promised to have cake on monday for my colleagues to celebrate 200 days of the new me, and less of me. I walked to the shops and back, and felt good!

Al in al a lovely day, which made me feel good. And that is what is all about, because if i feel good......I can make others feel good.

Next Charm 92.6 lbs


So you wish to know, huh, huh? The scale indicated I lost 5.7 lbs or 2.6 kilo! That means I now weigh FORTY WHOLE kilo's (or 88.3 lbs) less then when I started, and I am now officially less that 40 BMI!!! no longer morbidly obese! YES!

*grins* still along way to go, but I am on target again! I have so little time to write, but will do so later on!

Willow's revolution

Ok, I have a littel time, and you know what? I am wearing a pair of trousers, jeans to be exact! I feel like an human being in an alien skin. But people seem to like it. For over 20 years, I have not worn any trousers! Reason?

When I was a teenager all I COULD wear was one kind of trousers, actually the one they sold for workmen, you know who pave streets and work in construction. Only there did they have my size! It meant that eventhough I owned several pairs, and a few different tops, my choice of clothing was EXTREMELY limited. I always felt this as a punishment, and even a humiliation. And although I was not really bullied in school, it did cause the odd remark here and there. SO, once I stareted to have a slightly larger wardrobe, due to the fact that I made my own skirts etc., I never ever wanted to wear a pair of jeans, EVER!

ALIEN SKIN

And EVER lasted 20 years! Well, the time has come for me to do so again, and feel confident and quite happy about it. I will make sure that my November photograph is one in jeans...............HELP!!! I know the photograph is long overdue!! But watch this space it will be there sometime this weekend!

Today is weiging day, but more importantly, I have been tagged bij Nona (http://55kgs.blogspot.com/)! Thank You indeed!

So HERE GOES!
five "FOUR" questions for me to answer


Four dishes I like to cook:
1. Cheesfondue (Cajunstyle)
2. Shrimp and Surimi Rice
3. Tiramisu (Italian desert)
4. Pasta Gorgonzola

Four qualities I love in people:
1. Positivism
2. Honesty
3. Respect
4. Good manners

Four places I have been:
1. Berlin (Germany) - Where old and new meet, and history is all around you
2. Paris (France) - Where elegance, style, and architectural brilliance dazzle your senses
3. Scotland (UK) - Where images of Dickens, Bronte and Austen come to life, and words like bleak and humbug suddenly mean something
4. Ballinasloe (Ireland) - Where my heart lives, where my soul was born

Four things in my bedroom
:
I am redecorating!
1. Paint
2. Paintbrushes
3. Clothes
4. 2 Matrasses en 2 pillows

Four dirty words I like/tend to use:
Now there is an odd one. I am not native English, but Dutch. But having said that I have a degree in English Lit & Lang, and so most of my thinking is actually in english. So I will put down a mixture of english and dutch. You will find I am not much of a potty mouth, some say I am just too cultured; I never swer in public, and seldom in private.

1. "Shit" (Translation: Shit)
2. "Godverdomme" (translation: Damn - which in Holland has quite an IMPACT)
3. erm..................
4. another erm.................

Four objects I will never part with, and will leave to someone to inherit when I die:
(This question I personally added)
1. Thijs, a teddy bear made by my mother (deceased) as a gift for my grandmother (deceased)
2. A solitair diamond ring (was my mother's)
3. Photograph from me as a chubby baby
4. Beautiful handcrafted copper evening bag, shape of an large flatsided (I think the shape is called oblong) egg adorned with white mosaïc marble.

.......and last but not least..........

A wet day, and a bit of a cold day. But I spent about 10 seconds on my scales this morning, marvelling at the numbers I saw. It is going down again! My walking efforts seem to have an impact. I am tempted to say a BIG impact, but I know how unreliable these "home" weighings can be. So I will just continue the way I am going, and will see TOMORROW, weighingday!

BUT despite the rain and wind, I WILL do my half hour walking today. I will jsut dress the part and take a nice warm shower when I get home. My walk on the way to health is a calm one, no longer a daily struggle, easier. AND 5 more days and it is 200 days! 200 days of a healthier ME. No matter what others feel, say, or want. I have chosen for me, and it feels so good.


I AM VERY PROUD OF MYSELF
Not because I weigh less, but because I live healthier!

Next Charm 84.9 lbs

Such a good weekend! I am in an upbeat mood again, feels good! I walked a total of 1 hour today, and I am starting to thoroughly enjoy it! Had a lovely fish dish today, with lots of fish. My tummy is filled to the brim. Lots of veggies good taste to it. And in general I feel GOOD.

I have looked at the last 6 weeks and realise effectively I have not lost that much, 4 weeks of it was a holiday, and the other two weeks I have been trying to get back into the swing of things. BUT with my new exercise schedule I am back again!

Cosy evenings, romantic nights...oh la la!

I walked to the nearest gas station and rewarded myself. NOT with candy! No with a bag of wood for the fireplace *grins* I had brought a carry all to carry it in and went back on public transport! *smiles proud* Nice reward, and it is not in the value money wise...But I love my fireplace, just did not have any wood for it!

A friend of mine lent me her husband never used trainers, and I just kept them, they are a dream to walk in. I am tempted every time to do some running, but I know that is not wise. With almost 300 lbs (I am now officially less than 300 lbs!) stressing my knee joints in a run, I will injure myself for sure. So for the time being, just walking! But i started with half an hour every other day; I am rearing to go for 30 minutes every day! And it is not a slow pace either!

I really enjoy these very early walks!

Tomorrow I will start 15 minutes earlier and make it a 45 minute walk, and perhaps I will do some walking during my breaktime as well. A leisurely walk through the shopping street, I'll see!

In the days to come I have to make up for my rather elaborate friday, but with some careful planning, I am sure I can!

I found this article on line (http://www.health-emark.com/), don't click it it is riddled with spam. But the article was informative - See below.

Walking for weight loss, the advantage

An often question is whether you should walk longer distances or cover shorter distances faster. Put simply, which is better; faster walking or slow walking.

Each form of walking for weight loss has a small advantage over the other based on their effect on your physiology. You want to get all these advantages over time. The important thing, especially as you begin walking for weight loss, is to remember preference, balance and personalization.

In a hurry to losse weight?

Fast walking has the advantage of involving your cardiovascular system more intensively. You improve heart condition and increase fitness level. This basically means you increase and tone your body muscles. This increase in muscle tissue may not be physically noticeable but has significant physiological impact in terms of calorie expenditure. The more muscle tissue you have the more the energy you use up even as you sleep. These new muscle tissues use quite a bit of energy just to keep alive.

Also, fast weight loss tends to involve more muscle groups as you walk. The advantage here is that more calories are called upon to supply these muscles, resulting to significant calorie use overtime.

Taking your time....

Slow walking on the other hand removes the benefit of momentum created in fast walking. As you walking fast you tend to create momentum that is not driven by exertion but by inertia. Slow walking involves accelerations on and off. Acceleration involves use of energy.

Slow walking has another advantage of increasing endurance for walking and similar activities. Endurance is the ability to keep doing a task before you get tired. High endurance means you can keep doing a task longer.

The inherent advantage is your muscles tone up as well and you do not get tired quickly as your physiology adapts to provide energy and remove lactic acid build up. Longer walking consequently results to more use of calories.

Calorie loss, and making the choice

The literal difference in calorie burnt between fast and slow walking is not really that significant in terms of weight loss, especially in the short term. A difference of 10 calories maybe considered not very significant if you are trying to drop 50 pounds.

The choice for either fast or slow walking mostly has to do with preference as well as the “shock” introduced when you change from one form to another. It is a fact that some people are quite not into exercising for weight loss. Unfortunately for them, it is an essential part of weight loss. The last thing such a person wants is to be introduced to fast walking. However they may not be as resistant to slow walking for some significant length of distance.

Fast walking would probably be more acceptable to the more athletic than running for starters.
However with time, switching between these two modes of walking for weight loss should provide the effect of shock to your body system. Your body tends to adapt itself to your activities to make itself efficient in use of energy.

After walking for sometime you will realize you do not get as tired as you used to when you started. Your muscles and general physiology have adjusted and are in optimal performance for that activity. This is one of the reasons for a platue in your weight loss. Shocking you body systems with a different mode of walking targets different muscles and targets the same muscles differently. This can result to continued increase in calorie expenditure.

Next Charm 84.9 lbs



Well, I have lost weight again. Not that much, but enough. However if I wish to make the target for Christmas, I really have to work at it. having three dinner engagements a week will not help. BUT having said that, I am starting to enjoy my walks. This morning there was a storm raging around me as I walked, and I felt good, felt even better when I came home. It is a lovely way to start the day, I must say that.

Yesterday I read an article on line in www.health.com. The online magazine Health went to the top weight-control experts for their No. 1 tips to get the weight off now. Take a look, pick out what you like, or in my case amaze yourself about the fact that you are doing it already.

------------------------


1. Start smart

Begin lunch and dinner with a veggie-rich salad or broth-based soup, says Pennsylvania State University satiety expert Barbara Rolls, author of "The Volumetrics Eating Plan." "That lets you fill up first on a big volume of low-calorie food and ends up displacing some of the foods you'll eat next -- the choices that are usually higher in calories."

Here's a good salad recipe: Mix 1½ cups of salad greens with ¾ cup of raw veggies like onions, bell peppers, carrots, broccoli, or cucumbers; drizzle with 2 tablespoons of low-cal bottled dressing.


2. Sneak a snack

"Ten minutes before each meal, eat some healthy fat (around 70 calories or fewer): a handful of nuts, a few slices of avocado, or a spoonful of peanut butter, for example. That helps activate ghrelin, a hormone that lets you know you're full," says Michael Roizin, MD, co-author with Mehmet Oz, MD, of "You on a Diet: The Owner's Manual for Waist Management."


4. Try the 3-hour rule

"The secret to losing weight comes down to keeping your metabolism alive and active," according to fitness guru Jorge Cruise, author of "The 3-Hour Diet." How do you do that? By eating every 3 hours, give or take 10 to 20 minutes, he says, which translates to three moderate meals with three snacks (100 calories each) between meals.

Though other experts say there's nothing magic about 3-hour intervals, eating small, frequent, portion-controlled meals and snacks can keep your blood sugar level steady, your energy up, and keep you from overindulging.


5. Don't Miss

"If you're going to drink anything with calories (i.e., fruit juice, soda, sweetened coffee and tea, or alcohol), you need to consciously adjust your diet to accommodate those extra calories," says Purdue University nutrition researcher Richard Mattes, PhD. His research shows that people typically make adjustments to eat fewer calories over the course of a day after eating a solid food like jelly beans, but not after drinking the same amount of calories in a glass of soda.

And if you want to replace sweetened drinks with their calorie-free counterparts, rethink it. Some research suggests that people who drink no- or low-calorie drinks might actually end up eating more, Mattes says. The best thirst quencher -- and a dieter's best friend -- is still plain old H2O.

6. Cut out this combo

Skip those munchies made with white flour and sugar, like white bread, cookies, and pretzels, says integrative medicine guru Andrew Weil, MD. They signal the body to produce more insulin and set the stage for turning calories to fat, fat, and more fat.


7. Choose your pals

Studies show that most of us base how much we eat on what others around us eat, says University of Toronto psychologist Peter Herman, PhD. So steer clear of the big eaters in your social circle, at least when food is around. Sashay over and make small talk at parties with the folks who aren't hovering near the food table.

"Marching to your own caloric drummer requires some independent thought and calculation," Herman says.


9. Pare portions

Everything from beverages to bagels is two to five times bigger today than in the 1970s, says New York University nutrition professor Lisa Young, PhD, author of "Portion Teller" and who has studied the servings dished up in restaurants and by food companies.

"So if you grab a bagel or eat out, chances are you'll be served double what you need," she says. Her advice: Start leaving just a little bit on your plate or, if you can, cut the amount you eat in half. She also suggests that you "use your hand as a portion guide -- 3 ounces of meat fits into your palm, 1 cup of potatoes looks like a fist."


10. Be an early bird

Eat the most food earlier in the day, says Elisabetta Politi, nutrition manager at Duke Diet and Fitness Center, Duke University's successful weight-management center.

"Many dieters try to trim calories from their break-fast and lunch and then get hungry," she says. "Research shows the calories you eat earlier in the day help you eat less at night" -- a good idea since you probably won't be active after an evening meal.

11. Step it up

"Get a pedometer and start walking," says University of Colorado obesity expert James Hill, author of "The Step Diet." To keep the weight off forever, the goal is to take 11,000 to 12,000 steps (around 90 minutes) a day.

"You don't need to do it all at once," Hill explains. Start with 2,000 steps a day, or about 15 minutes of walking. Add another 5 minutes (500 steps) each week. You can find supercheap pedometers at drugstores and big-box retailers to help you keep count. There are lots of other sneaky little ways to add more steps to your day, too: Use a cordless phone and walk while you talk, or get up and walk during TV commercials. (Strategies to rack up more steps)


12. Think thin

"Seeing is believing," says Janice Taylor, weight-loss coach and author of "Our Lady of Weight Loss." "You have to picture yourself thin if you want to become thin." Visualize what you're wearing, where you are, who you are with, and how you feel. "The more vivid the picture, the more real it will feel to you," Taylor says, "and the more likely it will take form."

Shula Lazarus, PhD, a psychotherapist at the North Carolina-based weight-management program Structure House, agrees, though the method isn't clinically proven. "We use it to help dieters visualize a healthy eating pattern and the right portions on their plate. It can't hurt, and it might help."


13. Fill up on fiber

Crowd out calorie-dense foods by ratcheting up on fruits and veggies. "Start by eating one more serving of fruit and one more vegetable a day," says Donald Hensrud, MD, a Mayo Clinic nutrition specialist. Hitting that midafternoon slump? Reach for carrots -- the carbs will give you a lift. Not only does munching on nature's bounty become a good habit, but it'll also help you tap into dozens of disease-fighting phytochemicals and vitamins. The biggest fiber bulker-upper: beans. Just a cup of black beans nets you nearly 15 grams of filling fiber.


14. Brush your teeth

Sometimes the best advice comes from your best friend or, in this case, a fellow Health magazine reader. Barbara Haug of Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan, says she brushes her teeth right after dinner instead of at bedtime. "I can be a compulsive snacker in the evening," she says, "but I don't like messing up freshly brushed teeth."

Today a friend and I went to the Pallazo, Circustent of Mirrors. Here we were wined and dined, not to mention entertained in style. A glorious Fin de Ciecle ambiance, 2 michelin star food and great vaudeville and varieté act, the latter in the style of Cirque de Soleil. In one word FANTASTIC.

I enjoyed myself very much. Which was a suprise because today left me feeling down. In my personal life, read love life, something is not running as smooth as I wish, and it affects me. So much so I had fried food today! And the 5 course meal at the Pallazo.

all in all it is impossible for me to estimate how many points I had today, but I know it was too much
