    Good morning Judy and Kathy, and everyone that come on.

    Weight is up at 290.0. I know it's fluctuating, but dang.

    Breakfast was an apple diced in oatmeal.

    Lunch will be a can of tuna w mayo (the regular stuff; I am out of the low fat) and an orange. Maybe I will have a bowl of mixed veggies (broccoli, carrots and cauliflower) too.

    Dinner will be brown rice, kidney beans, rotel diced tomatoes and diced onion.

    Exercise will be the walking DVD again using weights this time for part of it. I don't really feel like going anywhere today, am just going to hang out at home doing a couple chores and maybe watch a movie.

    Hi Judy and Kathy and Rachael and all who come in later.

    Weigh In - 185 Yay!

    You know, I find I do better when I quit eating late at night. Late, I mean like from 7 on. I was going to like 9 then Judy said she stops at 8 so tried that, I still was staying at 186-187 so I tried 7 and I think this is the best for me.

    My Keurig coffee maker quit this morning. I'm so mad. Only lasted a year. I got it last Christmas from my kids.

    As for the pomegranate? What a joke. I looked at so many youtubes on how to get the little seeds out. It don't work. What a pain they are. If I want pomegranate, I will buy a bottle of it. ha ha!

    Brkfast - 1 banana 3/4 cup of coffee, humph! Will get another cup later, even if I have to drive 20 miles to McDonalds. Ha.

    Lunch, not sure yet. Hopefully a tv dinner or soup. Hubby is so cotton picken fussy I can't plan ahead.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -185; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

    Good morning all! (remember I'm a left-coaster...lol).

    I just wrote down Helene's signature line and it says -"Every day is a gift, do your best, be kind, especially to yourself." I find that we are often our own worst enemies in that we are super critical of ourselves. We need to be able to love who we are through thick and thin, no matter what. We need to love ourselves before others can love us. I'm not saying we should be conceited or arrogant but we do need to love ourselves and also be kind to ourselves too.

    Another thing I find myself doing is to look at how far I have to go to get to my goal weight. When I lost weight before I set five pound goals for myself and that is what worked for me then. I'm sure it will work for me now as well. So my lovelies my challenge to all of you is to set smaller goals so the total doesn't seem so overwhelming. If you were travelling by car from New York to California would you try to do it without stopping to rest? I sure wouldn't. I would break up my journey into shorter distances so don't you think losing five pounds would be much easier than losing 20 or 30 or 50 or 100? How about exchanging regular cola for diet cola then going on to water? Or changing white bread to whole grain? White potatoes for yams or sweet potatoes? Like Laura says -'baby steps'. The longest journey starts out with one step, right?

    Let's make a vow to love ourselves and the wonderful people we already are and the healthier people we ARE going to be!!!

    Hugs and kisses!!

    Hi all!

    Aus, I had a Keurig a while back and it only lasted a year as well - I used bottle water and everything. I'll take my coffee pot any old day.

    Breakfast: the usual oatmeal, but added a dash of cinnamon
    Lunch: 1 C. homemade chicken noodle soup
    Dinner: either chicken thighs or chicken breast, mixed veggies (from a can! got to get to the grocery!)
    snack: clementine, green tea

    Will get in exercise today. Head is healed up pretty well and it's a balmy 35 degrees!

    Hi Ausie I have the advantage of having experience with pomegranate I used to buy them in the stores when I was a little kid .. Now I buy them in a the grocery


    what I do is to cut through the leathery skin down from the flower end on each side then push the knife through the flower end and pry it open I put the amount I am eating into a quart size bowl get a bib then break into sections picking them out with my teeth avoiding the white parts . your pomegranate may
    have not been ripe if the methods didn;t work for you

    Hi all. A change to my dinner plans. The bf is working and it was just me in the house so I decided to take me, myself and I out to eat. I had a salad w all the veggies and light ranch, and a small bowl of chicken corn soup from the salad bar. For the entree, I had broiled scallops w cocktail sauce and plain broccoli. For dessert, I had a small piece of bread pudding w a small bit of peanut butter sauce. I had a nice time.

    Michelle- Thanks for the reminder to take weight loss in small chunks. I have been hovering on the high end of the 280's for so long, my short term goal is to get into the low end of the 270's. I would sure like to be less than 250 by June.
