Hi Danniella, congrats on deciding to keep an online food diary! Something that I've realized is that every little bit counts unfortunately :(

In regards to your breakfast, did you eat your muesli without milk or yoghurt? Also did you weigh your portion of muesli? Muesli is very healthy and low GI (the untoasted kind anyway) however it is very dense/heavy. If you aren't weighing it you might be eating ALOT more muesli (and therefore alot more calories) than you realize.

It may seem a bit tedious but it might help to keep a little book with you at all times, and as soon as you've eaten or drunk something write it down immediately. That way its alot harder to forget. I look forward to reading your future food diary entries and good luck in your weight loss :D

hi!!!
I often forget what I am eating during the day, and then sit here at night and try remember everything. it s a brilliant idea tho, to reflect on the days food, and then make changes or whatever for the next day :)
goodluck.

Thanks for your feedback laughing_sheep! and steph! I do weigh my muesli and I buy the all natural organic untoasted kind with no fat milk! Do you calorie count? I've only really started in the last few months!

How many calories should I be having a day to lose weight? I am 176cm tall anf weigh around 69kg I wan to get to around 60kg my new years (as I have to fit into my 21st dress which is on the night of new years day!)

Tuesday 9th November

Breakfast: bowl wholegrain cereal (200 cal)
small skim milk latte (70 cal)
= 270 cal

morning tea: small skim milk latte (70 cal)
= 70 cal

lunch: small portion of leftover pasta around (350 cal)
= 350 cal

snack: yoghurt ski with oats (200 cal)
small skim milk latte (70 cal)
= 270 cal

dinner: vegie delight sausages (184 cal) with cannellini beans (40 cal) homemade barbecue marrinade (50 cal)
with steamed vegetables (30 cal) & small portion mashed potato with skim milk (110 cal)
= 414 cal

Total = 1374 cal

* Find it very difficult to stay under 1200 calories each day but if it doesnt exceed 1400 then I'm doing fairly good. Its also been helpful for me to write my food diary in the afternoon when I generally feel like snacking as I look at what i'm going to eat before hand so I dont make any bad food choices. I probably drink to much coffee but its something I'd really struggle to go without! perhaps I could try get it down to 2 cups a day though! I'm vegetarian so naturally my main meals are lower fat and calories than meat eaters, however I tend to eat alot more light dairy products such as my afternoon yoghurt which does bump up the calories yet stops me from eating badly in the afternoon

Yep I do calorie count :D

If you go to calorieking.com.au you can enter in your height, weight and age and it will tell you how many calories to eat each day to lose weight. Another thing you might want to look at is exercise. While walking is great it doesn't use that many calories, but things like skipping, running, swimming and pedalling on exercise bikes do. Exercise has helped me to lose about 20 kilos so far so I recommend it :) To me it sounds like you are on track to losing weight so keep it up!

Looks like your going great Laughing_sheep well done and keep up the great work! I made a calorie king profile and it said to stay under 1350 a day so I've been going ok :) In terms of exercise im generlly quite active however atm im studying for my exams so really arnt getting to the gym. I'm been doing small pilates sessions each day as well as some squats and lunges so hopefully that can get me through exams! when I do get to the gym I generally go on the cross trainer for 20 mins, do a 15 minute slow uphill climb on the treadmill, and then I alternate between walking and running nfor 10 minutes. then I do around 15 minutes of weights/situps etc... but I prob only do this twice a week so need to work on doing more. I appreciate all your feedback! sounds like you know what your doing your weight loss is fantastic!

Sounds great! :D

A few years back when I was a teen I hit a plateau and the dietician I was seeing asked me if I was doing any cardio exercise- I wasn't, I was doing stretches etc. As soon as I started going for a walk instead the weight came off fast. But I guess we're all individuals with different goals and aspirations for our bodies, so the type of exercise we do is going to vary :)

Really stuffed up tonight had a snack size bag on fantastic delights (110 cal) and a muesli bar (150 cal) weight watchers jelly (9 cal) so I really exceeded my daily limit but im hoping all the extra exercise I did today helps balance it out.

Good thanks! I've been keeping on track with everything so its cool :D

How are you finding Tracy Anderson's workouts? I'm thinking of getting one of her dvds. Forme yoghurts are the best low-calorie snacks I think! They are full of protein and calcium too, I love them.
