Gained a bit from yesterday. Up to 190. Yikes. Yesterday I think I had a sandwich for every meal. That's definitely got too much sodium and that's probably the cause of the gain. I had subway for bfast, the other half for lunch, and then my husband brought me a sandwich home from work. Oh dear...
I also had a smoothie pretty late and then ended up waking up early to very sad dog in a very gross kennel. Ew. So DH and I cleaned that up and the very sad dog is in the back waiting for her bath.
I'm going to go rummage up something for breakfast...brb.

********************************** Sunday, June 9 C2 DAY 6, Our own little DETOUR on the Journey of a Lifetime.
I'm BAAAAAAAAAAACK! DID YOU MISS ME????
I caught up last night and most of us pretty much blew it in a big way yesterday with our eating choices.
NOTHING like fishing with DYNOMITE, huh guys?
Ok, ENOUGH OF THIS SH-T! STRAIGHTEN UP or SHIP OUT! there, I've said it. Something ELSE that needed saying.
Is that a typo? Are you going to Rome to see the Pope, Aussie? That is some drive. Hard to imagine here where every little town has 5 or 6 churches.
Back to business- weight 204.4. I've started down the backside of the mountain again thank goodness. At this point I would just like to finish the weekend without being heavier than last weekend.
Just saying - for me, Subway is the devil's spawn. Even the 6 incher. I wish wish wish I could run in there and still lose lbs, but I'm no Jared. Too much food and way too much salt. It's a better choice in the fast food category, but it's still not the yellow brick road to a healthy weight.
I didn't remember it was day 6 and measurement day til I logged in. I weighed myself when I woke up, but went straight out to walk 3 miles, had my breakfast when I got back, and just now logging in. I'm using my day one measurements. If I measure after eating and hydrating it won't be accurate. And my weight is the same.
WTH??!! Brownies and Pancakes?? Laura! Man! You even used lite syrup, why on EARTH would you eat a brownie? Where are these things coming from, lady? You can't buy any more of these things.
PLEASE, PLEASE, I'm really BEGGING you here, OK? If you absolutely MUST keep them and NOT throw them away as you should.... PLEASE, take every single cake, brownie and cookie in your house... Cut them into 1" square pieces, lay them out on cookie sheets and FREEZE them SOLID, then, ziplock them .
Keep them in the freezer for DIRE EMERGENCIES or If you MUST, dole out ONE a day.... ONE!! and only to be eaten IF you did well on EVERY meal and snack through the day. You don't get a treat if you didn't do well on everything else.
That's the only way to handle this Laura. You've got a serious monkey on your back.... you are an addict. Treat yourself accordingly.

Laura, have you ever tried cutting sugars and refined grains entirely? I am a brownies for breakfast girl, too. In fact I think the only hour on the clock I have NOT eaten a brownie is 3AM. But these pancakes for breakfast even with diet syrup sets you up for failure the rest of the day. Refined Carbs are converted to blood glucose as quickly as sugar. If you doubt me, take a bite of white bread and hold it in your mouth as long as possible -it becomes sweet. Have an egg in the AM or oatmeal. You should find that you stay satisfied longer. Give it a shot.
I have decided to up my intake of non-refined carbs, because of health issues, cramps, diarrhea and abdominal pain. Please don't take this as a criticism of the diet. I have a lot of medical problems.

Thanks Virginia, I know, I know. But it is still good to hear in a new way how fast white bread turns to sugar. Makes me feel bad for my kids too, all these years. They do have whole grains sometimes. : P
