    Aus - weight 188 - YAY, I didn't gain. Probably cause I promised myself I wouldn't eat them anymore. No more cheetos and no more gummy bears.

    Wake up everyone. We have a 200 mile drive to church and back today. Ughs. I will sleep most of the way.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -186; GW -150 for now, will lower that if I reach it.

    Don't live life comparing yourself to everyone else.

    Wow! Someone beat Kim up!

    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.

    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.

    Weight 208


    3 mile morning walk



    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.


    waist 42
    hips 49.5
    chest 44

    Breakfast

    1/4 tsp butter
    1/2 tsp lite syrup sugar free
    2 bacon
    water
    1.5 " square brownie (NOOOO!)


    Have a good day everyone! This evening going to see my son perform Disney tunes in the park under the direction of James Christiansen who wrote/conducts some Disney music.

    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.

    Good Sunday, Challengers!

    I am just back from church, (only 3 mi ea way, Aus, but we have no privacy here just outside the Capital Beltway). Bad weigh-in this AM. 226.2.

    Here are the measurements:

    Waist 43.5
    Hips 52
    Lower Tummy 49.5
    Right Thigh 29
    Left Thigh 28
    Rt. Biceps 16
    Lt. Biceps 15
    Bust 48
    Rt. ankle 9
    Lt. ankle 9
    Rt. Wrist 6.75
    Lt. Wrist 6.5
    Rt. Calf 17
    Lt. Calf 17

    Breakfast:
    1 egg
    .25 c chopped red bell pepper
    .25 c skim milk

    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.

    Let's get back on the horse and back in the race, Challenge-rs

    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
