Yesterday was another lost day, being the 28th, a day to remember, I guess, but I would hope to forget it if I could. Perhaps, since things have a way of working out for the best though we may not see it at the time, this will, too. I have been trying to keep the calories down, but I am a stress eater and yesterday was very stressful. I ate the big breakfast reserved for Sat. mornings but didn't eat near as much of it as I usually do. That was good. I had boiled shrimp and a salad. Another good thing, but I also had some Hershey Kisses (about 5) and a C2 coke. I ate a bowl of Chicken and Stars soup and 8 crackers. The bad thing I ate was two pretzel sticks covered in candy coatings and a glass of Nestle Quik, though it was sugar free. Not too bad on such a stressful day. Today I shall try to do better.

I made no entry for Friday and so I will backdate this one for that day and do another one this afternoon for today.

I had my usual breakfast: breakfast bar, grape juice
For lunch at work: super size fries
For snack at work: very, very small slice of birthday cake
So far this day is down the tubes.

Friday is my eat out and ejoy night so we went to a Mexican Restaraunt where I had a chicken fajita taco (fried flour tortilla), 1/4 cup guacamole, chips, 1/4 cup refried beans and 1/4 cup spanish rice. Cheese dip (queso, probably a 1/3 cup). So this was bad, but I drank only a few sips of coke and had water for the rest of the day. I also indulged in a mocha moolatte from Dairy Queen!!! YAY. That was awful, but I enjoyed it until I went to bed and had to take antacids. All in all, I cut what I usually might eat on a day like that by about 2/3. A nice improvement in spite of other indulgences.

I have had a hard time today. Unable to control appetite. HUNGRY!!! I ate a breakfast bar, drank grape juice and 2 cups of coffee. I had a pack of cheese crackers, a cup of cappucino and a baked tater with butter and cheese (not very big, also ate the skin). Ate a healthy choice dinner at home and added a 1/2 cup carrots to that. Ate four (4!!) pieces of lite toast (160 calories!!) and a bowl of special K cereal and 2% milk. No cokes, though. That's about 1500 calories. I'd like to get it down much lower because my metabolism is very slow. Too many carbs. Will eat salad and soup tomorrow and try to do better.

Why suddenly 75? Because it feels like day 75 and because I can't seem to remember what day it might actually be. So there! Today I ate two cups of plain mashed'a'taters, breakfast bar that tasted like cardboard, drank 2 cups of coffee with splenda and 6 oz. grape juice. No problem. I'm burning a baked tater in the oven now and will garnish it with sour cream, playlike butter, broccoli and cheese. I shall make a supreme effort not to drink anything but water the rest of the day, no coke. I will probably have a pudding snack and/or cocoa later which should not be a problem. I believe that I have lost about five pounds so far, maybe more. So all in all, I have done very well. Congratulations are in order. Thank you. Thank you.

Well, like I said once upon a time: Everything sux.

I did good until supper when I came home with footing hurt.

I had breakfast pastry, grape juice, cheese crackers, C2, chicken noodle dinner pack(very low calorie), and yes, you guessed it... PIZZA for supper. Ho-hum. No big deal, eh?

Yes, big deal. Back to the drawing board tomorrow.

So today was a trip and a half as I expected and I don't want to comment it on for fear of saving up more negative karma. Let us say that it was as expected.

I have not blown my diet too very bad, but must do better tomorrow. It is raining very hard. I was having a conversation with Cillaboink and got cut off. By the time I got back on, she was... gone. Alas!! It is the way of things. Love to all.

Everything is changed. Going to go to sister's house because 'kids' want to see gramma. What is this anyway? Gramma will be put on display? I am very disappointed. Will take father with me to make visit very short. Was counting on dinner to be part of gift. Now what? A glass gecko is all I have for her and a tiny box of Andes candies cherry center. By the way, you were invited dividemeby2 to come as was your brother. So if you want, it's at me sister's house, be there by 11:00 AM. Don't know what the food is, but niece is still getting food stamps so it will be free whatever it is. Thanks Hurricane Rita!!! YAY!
Did not do well on diet yesterday. Went to movie and saw Underground Evolution not to be confused with Matrix Revolutions. It was good if you like blood, gore and great special effects. Father loved it, by Jove!! I plan to do better today no matter what Rita supplies.

Love to all.

No entry for yesterday. Much too busy just being me. I went for the weekly dining out last night and didn't do bad at all, in my own opinion. Proximately 1500 calories for the whole day's total. Not bad at all.

This morning I had a big breakfast so I will have to have only small things later on. Bad start, but it should work out all right.

Tomorrow is mom's birthday. A birthday dinner outing is in the works at either Cheddar's or Chili's. I shall try to make good choices there and test my will power at my favorite restaurants. Of course,all restaurants are my favorite except Dairy Queen. Wish me luck.

As far as eating. I did good today, mmm, hmmm. I had a V-8, a pack of crackers, grape juice, toaster pastry, cup of instant cocoa, coffee, water, tuna salad, toast. I feel rather blah because my bewtocks are hurting right now and my foot, but all in all, I feeeeel good for having stayed on my diet. I had no cokes!!! YAY! I put marshmallows in my cocoa as a treat. It was good, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Chocolate. My almost favorite food. I don't think I have a favorite food. I just think that food is my favorite pasttime. Besides writing and I must do that every day, just like I must do my dieting. I simply have to work up to adding some physical activity to my life. My horoscope was right on the money, pardon the pun, today. It said that something I have been counting on would evaporate. It did. I thought I was going to get enough of a tax refund to pay my property taxes. But noooooooooooooooo. I owe IRS several hundred dollars in addition to property taxes. Yay!! What a world! What a world! I'm melting. Hopefully, I'm melting.
