    Yesterday:
    Breakfast: bagel thin with smoked salmon, capers, onion, tomato and a smear of cream cheese
    Lunch: Egg sandwich on english muffin with ham and colby jack
    Afternoon snack: bowl of special K red berries
    Dinner: a few small pieces of st. louis style pizza, bruschetta, spanish chorizo

    Today will be better I hope. I've been so busy packing and getting ready I've been going for quick to fix convenience foods like sandwiches. I've got grilled boneless skinless cihcken thighs and my favorite red cabbage/carrot slaw planned for dinner. Although my eating may be derailed with I bake cookies for a few of my friends who donated big to my ride!

    Apparently I have the appetite of a man because I seem to be eating a lot more than what most of the Team Estrogen women are posting. My current 37yo (5ft 1in, 112 pounds) appetite is actually only about 33% of what it was when I was 18yo and I am trying to restrain myself so that I can get to my goal: previous weight of 104 pounds at my wedding.

    I'm trying to be less hungry by filling up my stomache with water and little scoops of protein powder here and there (which does seem to curb my appetite a little).

    Yesterday:
    B: Large cup of water with 50% water and 50% low fat milk and a scoop of protein powder with a scoop of Citrucel

    S: 2 medium sized Chocolate Chip Vegan Cookies;Water with a scoop of protein powder and a dash of caffeine and a dash of milk.

    L: Large bowl of chicken salad and Dorito Chips (2 large handfuls)

    S: Small amount of Shredded chicken. mango, protein bar, handful of nuts.

    D: 8 dumplings in a bowl of soup with noodles.
    Exercised on my Elliptical machine for 30 minutes along with sit ups

    Today:
    B: Large cup of water with 50% water and 50% low fat milk and a scoop of protein powder with a scoop of Citrucel

    S: Pure Protein Bar (S'more flavor). Water with a scoop of protein powder and a dash of caffeine and a dash of milk.

    L: Salad, Beef teriyaki on white rice bowl (no brown rice available), 6 California rolls

    S: Atkins Day Break bar

    D: Planning to have salad and Chicken terriyaki on white rice bowl

    Tiger Mom, have you thought about changing your breakfast to something more substantial, that includes protein, like eggs or egg whites, veggie burgers, or even tuna? You might find you are a lot less hungry.
    You and I are about the same height and I recently shed 5 lbs., to get to the same goal weight you have. I eat quite a lot, but I lost the weight with the above, plus absolutely no white rice, Asian food (too much salt and high glycemic carbs), increasing my veggies and watching my intake of carbs overall. I lost the weight in 8 wks. and I pretty much have continued eating the same way (which wasn't much of a switch for me), except for fueling for my longer rides.
    You will get sick of having water and protein powder for breakfast. There are a lot of good things to eat for breakfast that are real food; they don't have to be traditional breakfast foods. Instead of focusing on getting to a goal weight for your wedding, it might be easier to think of it as a quest to find a new way of eating that you can sustain for life.

    I guess I should clarify about the wedding weight...I've been married 11+ years and want to be 104 pounds again like when I was younger.

    Actually, having the water and protein powder with a splash of milk for breakfast and the protein bar about 45 minutes later is a lot less than I used to eat (my typical dinner at age 18yo used to be 1 basket of chips and salso from Acapulcos along with the entire chicken enchilada combo platter and a dessert. Now I eat about half that amount at age 38yo).

    But, in answer to your question, yes, I do eat 3 eggs and 4 slices of bacon on the weekends for breakfast along with the protein and water and skip the protein bar on the weekends before lunch. I do eat an energy bar/granola bar before bike rides though for the carbohydrate energy to prevent the "bonking" that everyone talks about. I eat so much veggies that my daughter thinks that my favorite food is "salad". I'm hungry all the time and think about either food or biking...the protein powder in water helps curb my appetite, so that I crave snacks a lot less than before. Luckily, biking is a good food distraction.

    The only really good part of my diet plan is that I don't like juices/sodas/alcohol. So, I don't drink any of that stuff.

    Yeah, juice can be a killer and most people don't realize that.
    Good luck with your quest for the last few pounds!
    B: oatmeal with blueberries, 4 slices of chicken breast over a tomato, with melted cheese, coffee
    L: I had a weird day, with only one client, so I took myself out to lunch and bought 2 pairs of sandals I had a veggie sandwich, which consisted of a portobella mushroom, artichoke hearts, tomato, lettuce on what was called a South Shore sweet roll... it was a thin Portuguese roll, kind of like a wrap. I swore I wasn't going to eat it, but I hadn't had bread in 2 days, so I did.
    D: finished the left over lentil stew and spinach with pine nuts, 2 squares chocolate
