What I've eaten so far today

Breakfast - scrambled eggs, 2% cottage cheese and salsa
I walk 1 mile every day on my lunch break. This is part of my walk
A lot of people have asked what I eat each day so here is what I've eaten so far today. I took this right off my summary. I'm still under 1200 calories (only at 1031 calories so far) and I plan on going to the gym so I'll have room for a good snack tonight. The numbers next to the food are the calories. The numbers next to exercise (walking) are the extra calories I've burned so far today. I also drink about 4 16oz bottles of water a day and I have coffee in the morning and the afternoon.

Dinner tonight - chicken breast and steamed spinach with garlic and red pepper flakes

I'm still hungry after eating this dinner so I will probably have a snack before I go to the gym and since I'll have calories left I'll have another snack later tonight.

I usually cook a more interesting dinner than this but my daughter had cooked the chicken tonight for salads but I wasn't in a salad mood so I made mine with the steamed spinach.

I'll try to do more of these posts so you can see how I eat and how I've lost 75 lbs.  


  1. Thanks for posting. On lose it it told me to eat 1300 calories, and even though I run 5 days a week I'm barely losing, so I might go down to 1200 calories. I'm 55 and weighed 125 til menopause and now weigh 148. (5'4 1/2") I'm fit, but would like to get back down to my pre-menopause weight.

    1. Oh I feel your pain! I am in much the same shape and an inch shorter! I used to race marathons and triathlons and I think all that activity just made my body immune to having exercise help with weight I am going to consistently go to 1200 and see if it makes a difference.

  2. Must get over to Lose It and get my personal info to begin! Thanks for sharing and the lovely photos. That beautiful tree-lined road is so inspiring!
