My weight

I have more time to write now because I broke up with Andrey. I have been on the Internet much more because of calorie-count.com. It's a site where I count my daily calories. It tell me what foods are healthy and unhealthy, which is a major plus because a lot of times, I don't know whether a food is healthy or not. For example, I ate a Philly Cheese Steak sandwich which we get from Costco. I typed it in and it received a big, fat F. I had no idea that it was that unhealthy for you. If I would have known that I would have eaten some thing else. In a week and a half, I've lost 6 pounds. Now, I'm 184. I know I'm a little overweight because 35% of my weight is body fat. So, I hope that I can get that percentage down. A personal trainer said that it doesn't do any thing if we just work one type of muscle to lose the fat. To lose fat, we need to exercise more and eat less. Well, I have been doing that. I think I ate way too much during Gassuku because I gained ten pounds. My Sempai kept on telling me to eat during the breaks. I thought that I would have lost some weight because of the amount of exercise that I did. When I gained 10 pounds, I thought it was muscle instead of fat. Maybe it was some muscle, but mostly fat. This makes sense that my friend exercised a lot but was still overweight. It was because she ate way too much.

It's ok to eat as long as your foods are balanced. I usually lost minimal weight at the Gashuku's.

I don't know if they were balanced.

Always good to be mindful of what you put in your body, but don't take yourself too seriously. Splurge every now and then.

Oh, and my new blog is over at;

Hi Lizzie,
I'm new here thought I would say hi.
Its tough to eat right, particularly during times of stress and bad weather, but keep at it and I'm sure you will continue to lose weight. :)

I'm glad that the caloriecount site is helpful to you. I found it really shocking at some of the things that were unhealthy for you.. Did you see the calorie count of chicken wings???? Unbelievable! So now, when I want to eat chicken, I'll get chicken breasts instead.

I'm glad that you have succeeded in losing weight.. be careful to make sure that you eat plenty of fruits and vegtables.. they will help you alot.

Take care!

I eat fruit every day, but not vegtables. I love fruit because they are one of my favorite kinds of foods.

oh.. too bad that you don't like vegtables.. they have so many good things for you. Do you like those new vegtable/fruit juices? My daughter loves them.

Actually, I like vegetables. I've been constantly eating corn lately. I do like those V8 fruit drinks, but the not vegetable drinks.
