    Hi Judy and everyone!

    You changed up your breakfast today. Sounds yummy!

    Weight is down from Friday at 282.4.

    Breakfast was my oatmeal w a large apple cut up in it.

    Am meeting a friend for lunch at McDonalds, so it'll be the southwest salad. Will bring my own salsa for dressing.

    Haven't been to the gym since Wednesday so I hope to go back and put in some treadmill time. Everyone have a super day!

    Morning everyone. I went to bed early so I got up early. That's just not me. Whats going on? ha ha!

    Weigh-In 186, went up a pound, but I expected it. I ate a bowl of cereal at 8. I gotta learn to do that earlier.

    Brkfst - 1/4 cantelope and 1 cup of joe. Wish I could drink it black. I would quit drinking it if I had to drink it that way.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -188; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

    Hi Aus gram I used to drink my coffee with lots of cream and 2 sugars , what I did was gradually reduce the amount of cream and sugar . instead of 2 portions of cream I had 1 and instead of 2 sugars I had 1 then went to half cream a and a half spoon of sugar and so on after a while you retrain your taste buds

    Good morning all!

    Breakfast: 1/2 C old fashioned oats, blueberries, walnuts, ff milk, black coffee

    Lunch: 2 tbsp tuna salad (I made with ff mayo) on 2 slices of my homemade whole wheat bread (I make smallish loaves so I calculate cals to be around 150), 1 medium banana

    Dinner: broiled chicken breast, broccoli and yellow squash

    Don't plan on a snack today unless I get very hungry. I tweaked my knee a bit running yesterday so I'm not exercising today and will have to be more careful with calories.

    Weight is 153 this morning.

    Good Morning everyone!!

    I had a piece of 5gm. protein and all grain toast...
    with 1/4 tsp. orange marmalade
    1 c. coffee with powdered cream

    Not really hungry as i'm on antibiotics and pain killers for a tooth i'll have a root canal on tomorrow. If i'm in a spot I can stop for a better break than this I will most def. do my knee exercises (that I need to do) and ice 3x today.

    I usually go to pool on tues but will waive it because i'm just to uncomfortable.

    back on track....
    a couple bites of rotisserie chicken no skin and a teeny bit of honey mustard on it
    1/2 c. blue berries
    activia (1)

    lots of water...... as always....

    I have been working all morning at my desk job. However, I did do some packing into boxes of my desk and for me that is hard hard work....it really revved me up. This afternoon I will unpack two desks and put all of this into filing cabinets, desk and shelving units. This will be quiet a workout for me.

    Went to a Chinese buffet w my son for dinner. Tried to concentrate on the conversation and be reasonable w the food but I know I took too much. Hopefully the scale won't be too harsh in the AM.

    Before my cutoff, I will have a light yogurt and a peach.

    RAchael, you are doing really well. Even with the chinese buffet. My biggest downfall is chinese I think. I love the stuff and every darned time I have it, I gain the next morning. It has to have something to do with sodium in the stuff. I sure hope your scales give you a free pass in the AM or at most, just a little slap, lol

    My food was much better today. Not perfect, but better I'm relieved to say. Sometimes I look at what Debbie and Laura are posting and I think I'll never get there but I'm trying. Laura, the tape came late today and I'll try it out tomorrow. I'm looking forward to finding some Zen! Mardee, your new photo is so cute I want to go to sleep Kim, but I'm looking for that Green Fairy, darn it.

    Kathy, Don't compare!! Remember that I am over wo years into this journey and Laura, I think, longer than me. You will find your way at your own pace. Everyone does it a bit differently and most definitely not at the same pace. You are hanging in there and THAT is the most important thing.
