    Hi Judy, I like your wreath. Where is everyone? wow. Course I'm not usually up this early but I have a hair appointment at 9 so I wanted to do a few things before we tried to drudge the snow. Carl is out shoveling now. Its only 16 out. Brrr.

    Weigh In - Now get this! I was shocked. 1 8 3 wooooo! I don't know how I lost, I sat at this computer all day yesterday.

    Brkfst - 2/4 cup fresh pineapple, 1 cup joe

    Yesterdays lunch was 2 eggs, 2 link sausages, 2 toasts
    I think that's all I had. I keep forgetting to write stuff down. I didn't have any snacks, so that's all I musta had other then my breakfast yesterday. Oh yeh and that cranberry bread. Hmm, that was it.

    Kathy, ticks? Ughs Ughs. I had one on my side when we went and visited my brother in Arkansas, I was in the shower and I started screaming. Carl came running in and got him out. That was awful. Then while we were living in North Carolina my son got one behind his ear. Someone told me to use a match and it would back out. It didn't. It blew up in his skin so I had to take him to the doctors and they had to cut it out. I hate ticks. They are worse then mosquitos. One of my friends did get bit with an infected mosquito and it put him in a coma for 3 months. He is still trying to learn how to walk and talk even after a year and a half. Poor guy.

    Morning everyone.

    I had special K strawberry and chocolate cereal for breakfast with whole milk. I had forgotten to put a new thing of soy milk in the fridge when I emptied the last one.
    I have grapes for a snack today and then leftover chili for lunch.
    Planning on biking today for at least 20 minutes.

    Starting weight: 198 Current weight: 191

    Happy Monday! It's the start of a new weight loss week! Even after my s--t load of calories yesterday, or maybe because of it, I am back to my usual 0.2 loss this morning. That puts me at 212lbs and a 1.2 lb loss for the week. I'd prefer a little more, but slow and steady wins the race says the tortoise.

    My friend purchased a months worth of meals from Personal Trainer on Groupon and she is losing like crazy. She says it tastes pretty good. I checked it out online but the sodium content was so high that I couldn't consider it. Has anyone tried one of these programs?

    Today will be lower calorie, probably back to an egg white lunch. Dinner is still up in the air. Chicken, chicken, chicken.

    Hooray Aussie! You FINALLY got off that same 3 pound merry go round! You must be so stoked! I think I know what did it. You were snowed in so I don't recall any restaurant food for the last 2 days. Could that be what was holding you back?

    Yay Sandy!!!! Good going on beating down the scale. Wonderful news.

    I like the rainbow wreath, too, Judy. Thanks for finding such beautiful images.

    Kali, if you worry about using the whole milk you can always cut it half and half with water. It makes it more like skim, when you are in a pinch.
    Chili sounds good...... maybe I'll have to pick up the "fixins" for it when I go shopping later. hmmmm

    AM weight, not great but it's down from yesterday at least.... 196
    I think it's time to start walking again. Won't today, too stormy, so I may just grab some time on an eliptical, at the gym, along with my normal routine.

    Breakfast, banana/egg white/blueberry pancake w/ sf syrup

    Lunch , 1/2 heart healthy pita stuffed w/ cuke slices and 2 Tblsp hummus

    PM snack fruit/veggie smoothie

    Dinner , 2 tuna patties , tossed salad w/ diced apple, craisins, walnuts and rasp. vinaigrette

    have a good day all

    Hi again. Kathy, I'm having one of those days like you had yesterday. It's a good thing I'm at work and really can't go anywhere. I've had two McD's yogurt parfaits, a serving of pistachios, a can of V8 and now I'm having an apple with some peanut butter. I have a grapefruit if that doesn't fill me up.

    I did get up early so I could go to the store but I got a call from my mom that she needed help. She said she hurt her arm and couldn't get out of bed. Well, I don't have a key so my sis had to come over and get the door open and my son managed to get mom up. He is one strong young man. My mom weighs over 200 and Dale just wraps his arms around her and lifts her up and sets her on her feet. So, that's why I got the yogurts from McD's. Maybe I can do the store tomorrow morning if I can drag my tired old butt out of bed early

    I think I'm going to get a grilled chicken salad for dinner with a small side of pinto beans, citrus dressing and extra salsa. Should be somewhere around 550 calories or so. AND NO SODA!!! I'm tired of
