    Morning Judy and all,

    Congrats, Keet. I hear you about the Christmas pounds, Judy. Also, January is such a depressing month to me - holidays over, back to school, the WEATHER, etc., etc.

    So here's to getting back to 150 - 8, yes eight pounds, to go!!! I will do it!

    Breakfast: 1/2 old fashioned oatmeal, 4 walnut halves, 1 tbsp dried blueberries, 2 tbsp skim milk
    Lunch: 1 C homemade veggie soup (at least, I think it is. I got it out of the freezer this morning so it's either veggie or chicken barley chili)
    Dinner: chicken thighs, broccoli, carrots
    Snack: apple (large gala)

    Have a great day everyone.

    Sooooo COLD! Yikes! It might be the coldest ever in the 35 years we've lived here. I downloaded a book yesterday that should have been a waste because it was written by Cameron Diaz, but it is THE JUDY BIBLE! It's all about the importance of whole food and pretty interesting. Another happy start because I was down a teeny .2.

    Breakfast - clementine, 3/4 c dry cereal, cup of Roma

    THE PLAN - lunch is ham salad sandwich and an apple, dinner is hamburger patty and broccoli and sweet potato. Fruit for a snack.

    Weight - 217

    and I lose a little then gain it back
    I am thinking if I wasn;t watching it so close it would be 20 pounds by the end of winter

    Hi Kathy I heard about her book and she was attacked for having things in there that were too expensive .. Lol most things are just natural eating we can always make changes to things we can get /// the general message is the same as mine that you should eat as healthy from natural sources as possible

    Good morning everyone. I forgot to post yesterday. I was getting ready to and Carl says, lets go and get it over with so then I forgot to come back here.

    Weigh-in 186 of course. ha ha.

    Brkfst - 3/4 cup fresh pineapple, 1 cup of joe w/c/s

    Lunch - shrimp in a bag dinner. Its way low in calories. I got it at Walmart, it looked so good and was only $3.50. Looks like there is enough for 2 meals. So no heavy cooking for me today. Yay.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -185; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

    Don't live life comparing yourself to everyone else.

    Oh my gosh, Judy, that is so true! In addition to getting off the plan, I stopped weighing myself every morning. Wooo doggies, that weight will jump on you quickly. I was shocked by the 8 lbs., but I am not going to beat myself up about it. Just getting back to the plan and planning on figuring out a new exercise routine until the weather warms up a bit. They are renovating the indoor track here at the university so that's out right now.

    Geepers I finally hit a goal with my weight and my online frineds are grappling. So Sorry...........I think there is something to weighing every day or everyother day. I know I was able to catch myself at an 8 lbs. and just stay even and then worked on it again and now i'm under.

    Thank you for giving me that tip
