    Morning all.
    Breakfast picking were sparse this morning. I need to do some shopping. We got our fridge moved yesterday evening, so I can get some perishable food now.
    My fridge has a half empty gallon of whole milk and a package of turkey for sandwiches. That's it. lol
    I had a bowl of honey bunches oats w/strawberries for breakfast with whole milk. I didn't drink the whole milk - just ate it with my cereal.
    My department at work moved from the 1st floor to the 4th floor about two weeks ago. I have recently started taking the stairs up and down everyday rather than the elevator. I'm not dying at the top as much as I thought I would be, so that's good

    Morning Judy and Kali

    Weigh In - 185

    Brkfst - 1 apple, 1 cup joe

    I have to say, I got so busy yesterday, I forgot to eat after lunch. So, all I had was a small biscuit, 1 sausage patty and 1 egg. I wondered when I woke up at 2 thinking, why am I so hungry. Ha!

    I did get my mile walk in and today I will to, suppose to be nice out.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -185; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

    Gosh, I have never "forgotten" to eat once in my whole life! I have a friend who says that all the time, but it's such an alien concept to me. I must have a really strong HUNGER muscle cause it works really well. Bummer

    Kali great news on the house, the fridge and especially the stairs. Things are really coming together for you! Hooray! It's taken a while but all the sweeter for the wait I imagine.

    The snow is melting but I still have a knee high ice mountain in front of my garage doors so I can't get my car out yet. Grrrr.

    Breakfast - clementine, 1 cup dry cereal

    The plan is for soup and an apple for lunch, dinner will be chicken and a yam and veggie.

    Have a sunny day!

    Good morning Warrior Princesses!! Hip, hip Hurray! for Kali and her new home!!!

    Here's a little something funny. As I was reading Judy's food update from yesterday I 'three slices of - cake - instead of cuke'. I was so shocked! I thought to myself - No, not Judy, she is too disciplined. Then I read it again....lol. I must need to clean my contacts or something.

    I had the salad last night with a small side of pinto beans which I put on the salad. I checked my sugar before I went to bed and it was 124 so I decided to take a whole pill instead of half. Well...when I woke up this morning and tested my sugar was 49!!! Yikes! Idealy It's supposed to be betweei 70 - 100. The really scary thing is that I didn't feel shaky or anything. I did get an orange juice when I stopped at McD's to bring it up some more. I've got to do some more experimenting with my diabetes meds so I don't get that low.

    I have no idea what dinner is going to be but I'll figure something out. The rest of the day will be my usual.

    Have a wonderful day everyone!!!

    Michelle

    P.S. I feel much better today. Thank you for your support.

    I hear you. Sometimes I have to have some chocolate. I'm more of a salt lover, i.e., chips. I think eating the pistachios has helped me stay away from the chips. I still haven't bought any - since November. Hmmm...I wonder how much that had to do with my weight loss if anything. OOPS! I take that back. I had some tortilla chips a couple of weeks ago and around New Year's. Must be age related memory loss...lol

    Good evening all. I had a chicken cantina bowl from Taco Bell for dinner. It runs around 600 calories.

    My sister and I are going to a women's conference tomorrow and Saturday so I don't know if I'll be here until Sunday. We'll be eating out but I'll try to be sensible. I'll confess if I get carried away which I have a tendency to do sometimes. I have some granola bars that aren't too bad that I'll have with me so I'm not going to starve. ..lol. I could probably live off my fat for a good long time. ..lol.

    Later chickies.
