    Oh nice Sharon! That sermon really helped you. ha ha! Now to stick to it, right? I make a rule, but don't keep it. Wish I could.

    ok - Weigh-In 187, lost one of those pounds I gained. Didn't eat at kfc like Carl wanted to. We ended up going to Sweet Tomatoes with some friends. You know they only have veggies and soup there. I'm not a big fan of soup but I did eat lots of veggies. No dressing, I got where I can eat and enjoy salads without dressing.

    Going with my daughter today. going to Panara's for a bagel, then shopping.

    Have a good day everyone.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -188; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

    Aus, I have started eating "naked" salad, too. Amazing how our taste buds can be retrained.

    Look up the calorie count on that bagel before you indulge!!

    Good morning Sharon and Sandy
    good job on the new low weigh Sharon that's a yippy situation...
    and Sandy I am glad you are doing well too but be aware that some good fats are needed in our bodies, so a healthy dressing on vegies is OK unless you are getting your healthy fats somewhere else...

    My breakfast today
    1 slice pumpernickel toast
    2 soft boiled eggs
    3 oz orange
    1 C black coffee


    plan for the day

    boneless skinless chicken breast
    broccoli
    either sweet potato or little red potato
    side salad


    2 C green tea with lemon

    a plum

    supper
    2 oz pistachios
    greek yogurt
    strawberries
    blueberries
    honey
    a bit of gg crunchy pecan cereal

    that's the plan for today

    Good morning, everyone.
    Weight is up after a bad weekend at 287.0. I am sure it'll come down a bit after using the bathroom and pounding the water over the next couple days.

    Breakfast- banana

    Lunch will be 1 1/2 C of a concoction of wheat pasta, chicken and lots of veggies w 1/4 of melted cheese.

    Going out to a movie and dinner (an actual DATE with Will) so dinner will be steamed Chinese food without the rice.

    Gonna go out next to a favorite local park and walk about 45 minutes. Need some "outdoor solitude" time to regroup.

    Everybody have a really good day.

    Breakfast - Left over half hamburger from the night before.
    Lunch - Beef stew
    Dinner - Chicken pasta of some sort

    Another crazy weekend. Not quite as active as last, but still pretty up there.

    Friday we bowling with friends and then went to a get together that last till the early morning hours. I don't think that i sat down the entire night.

    Saturday i went to a fair and walked around for about 4 hours

    Sunday we went out to the dessert to go shooting. That was tons of fun. But i blew an ear drum

    So all in all, i was on my feet all weekend

    I am drugged up and unable to read the screen so please excute typing errors.

    lunch was
    grilled chicken
    brown rice
    green pepper, onion, tomato, tomatillo
    guacamole
    romaine lettuce
    peach

    1 oz semisweet chocolate

    even a little exertion cranks up the arm pain, but it is visibly smaller. hoping for more improvement tomorrow. I requested a blood test order from my doc today so only a couple of days til I get my labs back and see if this effort has improved my numbers.

    Love, to all
    Smoochies,

    Everyone's doing pretty good on tracking food and some new numbers on the scale. Calories are in line. Maybe add some greens if you haven't. They don't increase calories. And so beneficial packed with nutrition

    Laura

    Weigh in 191.2

    Exercise: Calisthenics, circuit training, weight training

    Breakfast: skim milk, walnuts, flax, kashi lean, peach

    Lunch: Lima beans, lentils, pistachios, banana

    Dinner: salmon, spinach, apple, peas, pizza home made vegetable, ff milk, fiber one bar (time to stop these and choose something healthier again like nuts or hb egg)
    Laura

    Baby steps, to a healthy lifestyle change. When you change your thoughts you will then change your weight. Getting healthy is about progress, not perfection.

    Hi Kathy I have been noticing you rarely eat any green vegies
    they are full of nutrition and low in calories lots of fiber too .
    is there any reason you don;t include any green vegies ?

    Judy I normally do, it's been broccoli lately if you've noticed. I like green veggies and in my normal life had a salad and a green veggie most nights with dinner but I guess now I just begrudge the dressing calories. Thanks for pointing it out and I'll be more mindful..

    Kathy, do you like 'ranch dressing? I found that Hidden Valley has a LARGE 8 oz container of it's ranch making powder. I only use what I need, can add some to a small pour bottle with a little skim milk, a little vinegar and a little ff plain yogurt(for thickness). It makes a nice lower cal dressing which is "to my taste" , fresh and only as much as I need.
    For dipping finger veggies, I just add a little of the powder to plain ff yogurt.
