    Weird! Did everyone have the Tuesday post disappear? Anyway, hello Judy I sure hope you feel better as the day goes on, but that weight of yours is pointing in the right direction so that must make you feel a little better! Hang in there

    Breakfast - clementine, 1 cup dry cereal

    This is my low cal breakfast option. I'm trying to switch it up with an egg or smoothie on other days. I think lunch and dinner will be the same as yesterday because it worked and filled me up nicely. Plus its left over and I hate to waste food...that also means I didnt eat it all and thats a VICTORY! The last two days have shown a .4 loss each day and hooray for that!

    Doin' It is my daily mantra.

    Good morning, Judy. And everybody else that comes on.

    I am feeling a little down this morning. Yesterday my weight was 302.0, and today it is 302.6...and I had a good food day. The only thing I added that wasn't posted was a couple teaspoons of Nutella and peanut butter, but that wouldn't add up to that gain. I know, I know...at this weight, my weight fluctuates but darn!

    As for today, I had my diced apple in oatmeal and skim milk.

    Lunch will be lentil soup and baby carrots.

    Dinner will be spaghetti sauce made w crushed tomatoes and ground turkey or sausage (all spiced up!) over spaghetti squash.

    I am having an intentional day off exercise today as my legs, knees and feet are feeling it from the past couple of days.

    Everybody have a good day.

    Thanks for finding it Judy! I hated to see that idea that Roh and I liked disappear. It's not enough for me to brush after dinner, that's too easy to do again later. It's the flossing that's the trick for me. If you do it carefully its a real pain in the neck so I DON'T want to eat again. LOL!

    Don't Get discouraged Rachael. Keep up the good work that you are already doing and FLOSS before that Nutella hits your lips!

    Wowie, all you early birds today. I haven't slept this good in a long time. Paid to hit the doc up. Ha ha. Now, for some good news:

    Weigh In - 185 Woohoo!

    Brkfst - 1 cup fresh pineapple, 1 cup of joe

    Lunch - Not sure. I bought some cabbage and I love cabbage so I might do something with that.

    Kathy and Roh and Judy, I'm going to do what you mentioned on yesterdays post. After I eat for the last time tonight, I am going to brush and floss my teeth. Gooooooooood idea. Yes! I'm sure it will work for me. I hate flossing too, cause like Kathy says, its a pain. Takes forever. But I still have most of my teeth and don't want to lose them. My mom said years ago, I think I was about 12 yrs old, "Don't ever get false teeth, some days I want to take them out and throw them across the floor." So I have tried to take care of my teeth. Ha ha, just thought I'd thow that in.

    I saw the tues post before comng here. hmmm the wmdgremlins again.

    I think that is a great idea Kathy!! I didn't realize but that is whats been hitting me to once my husband gets his chex mix for his snack at night then I want something too! I've been making me tea off and on and so i'll stick to the tea and then brush and floss! good idea i'll make sure its extra minty too

    Rachael.... it may help too if you try kathys idea. some people set a time of which they can have a treat. You're doing good tho and you just have to catch those urges at the very beginning and chase them away. Learn to either put a huge stop sign in your head and or replace the thought you're having with a better one.

    Hi Roh! you always have such helpful hints and info

    Judy so sorry to hear of you still feeling under the weather. I do hope you do continue toimprove and feel much back to center and not with that rotten flu that's going around. Both my pt and hairdresser had to cancel on methis week because of flu.

    Aus, I'm having cabbage this week too or next. I'm buying sauerkraut. I'm glad Kathy's idea sounds good to you too.
    lol glad you don't have false teeth

    Jean, You have a really clean record.

    Everyone, and a gold star to Kathy this way for a great change about and the flossing idea!!

    so breakfast
    2 slices protein toast and 1.5 tsp honey cinnamon
    2 cuppa with 1/21/2

    lunch: i'm thinking a salad with some kind of protein
    but don't know what sounds good as i'm not hungry yet
    kinda thinkin the salad I had the other night was good but I don't have right ingredients

    dinner: a few noodles in a light chicken aujous cream
    ff milk is in it and a little corn startch
    mushrooms red onion salad and possibly beef barley soup home made

    i'll see how close I come

    yesterday I did 4 laps (therapy pool much shorter) of breast stroke and 25 mins. of pool exercise

    today i'm going to try to go to the store which will be my t I exercise do yoga which I've been doig on my non exercise days so that I stretch well enough not to hurt as bad

    Good morning my dear friends! I know it probably seems late to all of you but remember I'm a west coaster...lol.

    Aussie, I'm glad that you slept good last night. I probably would have but I've had terrible tinkle-itis the past two days and it's already starting up again today. I remember reading somewhere many years ago that when you have to tinkle more than usual that it means you're losing weight. Supposedly it's because fat turns to water and you pee it out. I certainly hope that's true.

    I'm buying lunch today - a chicken salad. The daughter of one of the ladies who works here has a catering business and she will email when she is bringing lunch. I've had the salad before and it is wonderful. I am so looking forward to it.

    I had a chicken Cantina bowl from Taco Bell for dinner. It runs about 600 calories and is so good - to me anyway. It's like a Mexican salad with black beans, cilantro rice, roasted corn salsa, pico de gallo, a dab of guac with chopped romaine on top. Oh, and chicken of course. Tonight will be light since I'm having a bigger lunch than usual for me. Hopefully it won't make me hungrier at dinner time.

    I wonder if Kim fell in love with her spa day and decided to move in there. Wouldn't that be something? Has anyone heard from Debbie? I'm missing Mardee too and wondering how her recovery is going from her hip surgery.

    We all seem to be fighting the good fight! Let's keep it up!!

    Ohhhhh Michelle, I hope your right, but I do a lot of "tinkling". ha ha and I don't lose anything, just a few mins of sleep. At least I can get right back to sleep after I make that short trip to the toidy. Ha ha!

    Got my walk in this morning. 1 mile. I always think of Judy walking an hour. 1 hour Judy - 1 mile for me. Ha ha. I'm not sure I will ever have the energy to walk that long.

    Lunch is steak, broiled, too cold to bbq it. and a few fried veggies and a big bowl of cucumbers.

    supper - probably oatmeal with fruit.

    Yep, Michelle, fighting the good fight. ha ha. Aren't we Food Warriors? What'd you call it Kathy??

    bigred53 replied to ausgram's response:
    Aussie I hope I'm right too about the tinkling. I just wish I didn't have to go so often at night cuz sometimes it's hard for me to get back to sleep - my crazy mind just won't stop.

    My lunch salad was SO. SO GOOD. Whatever kind of seasoning they use on the chicken is fab. Lots of tomatoes, cukes, green pepper and radishes with the green leaf lettuce and basalmic vinegarette. YUM!!! I almost think I could eat it every day. I should have saved half of it for dinner but I kept shoveling it in and now I'm stuffed. That's my problem - I'm an addict and sometimes I don't know when to stop until it's too late. I've just got to keep trying. Tomorrow is a new day. At least my lunch wasn't something like loaded nachos or Chinese food with a big pile of fried rice and chow mein noodles. Guess I'd better drink some more of my vinegar water. It's supposed to help you lose weight - so is eating grapefruit.

    I would love to have some cold weather. It's supposed to be in the high 80's later this week and early next week. Sunday it's supposed to be 90 according to the forecast. That'll be like having a constant hot flash. UGH!!

    Have a great evening everyone!!

    Ughs, Michelle, where you from? 80 and 90? Not my kind of weather. Gimme the snow and rain and cold. We usually don't get none of that, but I like it. Ha. Its 50 out right now, and it could stay that temp the rest of the year if it was up to me. But it won't. I think we are due for a hot summer.

    bigred53 replied to ausgram's response:
    Aussie, I live in Southern California about 30 miles east of Los Angeles. I don't like the heat either. I'd be happy if it never got above 70. Your 50 sounds pretty good to me right now. I think our summer is going to be hotter than Hades too. Last year was not too bad - not many days in the 100's. At least it cools down at night most of the time. I'm going to have to get a new fan this year as I think the one I have is about to bite the dust. Maybe I'll sweat off some more weight...lol.

    Goody!! One more hour and I get to go home and relax!!

    Have a good evening everyone!

    Michelle
