healthy life – style journal, Oct 20, 2015

I record my weight on Tuesdays; so here is the moment of truth 🙂

I am 202 pounds, 8 pounds less than when I started my healthy eating on Sept 1, 2015.

It is not a substantial loss, but a loss nevertheless. I can do nothing but being appreciative of this and hopeful that I will continue to lose the extra weight over time.

breakfast: forgotten my breakfast at home; coffee with creamer and brown sugar

lunch: one can of fish, coffee with cream and sugar, and 1 tea biscuit

late afternoon; 3 soft meatballs

dinner (added later): I do not have an appetite today, either but I will force myself to eat a little so that I do not consume less calories than my body needs to. I have eaten 3 slices of whole wheat bread and 50 grms of cheese. I have noticed that I have been eating these very frequently. I also remembered, through the conversations in the comment area, that I have not been eating enough veggies. Hence, I have also eaten a large cucumber. Life is good 🙂

late night snack (added later): 1 apple

exercise: 30 min walk in the afternoon (no walk in the morning today – it was raining so I took the cab)

stretching: 10 min in the afternoon while listening relaxing music 🙂 it was great!

supplements: iron supplement in the afternoon,  calcium and vitamin D supplement after the dinner.

        1. I will see what I can do; I love walking in the airport and the cities I will visit, so that is great. food may be my weakness 🙂 but I have done relatively good last time. So hope to keep doing so :))


  1. Brown sugar in coffee? I don’t think I’ve ever really heard of that. Wonder if it tastes as good in tea? Good job on the weight loss and try to incorporate veggies and fruit, too!

    1. brown sugar has a distinct smell and aroma; some people really do not like it, but you may give it a try. I enjoy it with tea and coffee now. yes, I am not good with fruits that much (and sometime I forget to eat veggies too). thanks for reminding me! 🙂 they always make me feel good and lose weight, especially if eaten raw


      1. Even if not for losing weight, the nutrients in the fruits and veggies are needed for all sorts of stuff our bodies do. And protein and iron. Those are needed, too. 🙂

        1. sure, you made a good point again. I keep eating the same things 🙂 I do not know why but I have no interest in the majority of the food; like pasta, rice, desserts, icecream, cookies, pizza, multiple types of veggies. I am trying to implement a diversity plan for the veggies and fruits that I eat; hopefully I will have some progress 🙂 re; iron; I am on supplements because I have some deficiency; I should eat more meat 🙂
