    Keet, Your determination on this journey is inspiring as well!

    No weigh in bc I am not home.

    Breakfast was apple and oatmeal.

    I also had a couple string cheeses.

    Lunch will be a 6" Subway Turkey and an orange.

    Dinner will be the other half of the Subway turkey and lentil soup.

    I got a foot long out of habit... and I really don't need the whole thing at once. Wish me luck that I don't gobble down the whole thing at lunch time! It's rainy here so no walk today. I hope to go online and find a seated chair work out to give my knees a rest from yesterday.

    Have a good day!
    Rachael...under construction.

    Judy, I can't not ask this.... What is that thing? That thing that's cut in half in the center of today's image? It's got spikes on it's skin, but it looks sort of like a squash inside.
    This photo has a bunch of different , foreign stuff in it that is keeping me guessing.
    Roh, what are these things in this photo today..... you are usually the one that eats the more dangerous selections, lol

    The image is a little small, but I believe yon spiky thing just to the right of the very green pineapple is a durian fruit.

    Oh gosh. I almost posted on the wrong day again. I've already done that twice this week. I don't know what's wrong with me.

    Breakfast was a bacon, egg, and cheese burrito provided by work. Lunch will be the 80 calorie packet of tuna with 10 ritz crackers. Water.

    Dinner my parents and two of my siblings are coming over. We're having corn on the cob for sure and probably salad. That's as far as I've planned. haha, at least it's the healthy stuff planned first, right?

    Hi everybody,


    Today I had strawberries, 2 boiled eggs and slice of wheat toast for breakfast. I don't know what lunch and dinner will be yet. I plan to do my T25 exercise video and maybe take a walk today.
    I looked in the mirror today and I think I actually look smaller. I haven't really noticed before now. But my friend who hasn't seen for two months was screaming "You've lost so much weight", she really noticed. That made me feel good.

    All right Tia! That's really great about your friend noticing you've lost weight. Noticing for yourself is wonderful too. It's one of those Non-Scale-Victories we talk about, and a sign of your continuing success.

    Good morning all. Yay Tia. It does make you feel wonderful when somebody notices that you've lost weight.

    I got my soda reward last night! I got two pairs of jeans - tan (which I'm wearing today) and regular blue. I'm thinking I should have gotten one pair a size smaller - like a 1X - because these 2X's are feelling a little loose, especially in the butt and thighs. Live and learn.

    For dinner last night I had a Frisco burger with cheese. Yes, it's on grilled sour dough bread with parm. I was craving beef. That happens to me a couple of times a month. I usually have some kind of chicken or tuna salad for dinner - mostly chicken. I've been wanting some halibut too but that will have to wait for payday unless I strike it rich somehow before then...lol.

    My son got a rootbeer freeze last night and I only had one sip. Surprisingly it satisfied me. I know he would have let me have more had I asked.

    I've got to get to work on some problem cases so I'll be going for a while.

    Wow, lots of posters today. Nice.

    Roh, glad you said what that fruit was too. I was going to suggest, lungs that never smoked. ha ha ha!

    Weigh In - 184

    Brksfst - 3/4 c fresh pineapple, no joe today

    Snack - 1/2 biscuit w/egg at McDonalds. I was afraid the pineapple was going to react on me but didn't, so glad. Anyway, I wasn't planning on going anywhere today and Carl informed me that we had to hit a few places up in town. ughs. My hair was a disaster too.

    Lunch - only casue Carl was hungry we stopped at McDonalds again and I hate for anyone to eat in front of me so I got a simple hamburger. That was it.

    snack - the rest of my biscuit w/egg.

    Supper - Not sure yet. Maybe just cereal again. or Strawberry shortcake. Yummy.

    I better get on FB so I can see Kims new grandbaby pictures. she did say, "New Pic Alert." ha ha

    So much is going on here on the different threads that it's making my head spin! I can't follow everything! It seems it's either feast or famine and for now we're feasting. Hooray!

    Weight was up today a bit to 208.4 so I'm choosing to ignore it because there was no good reason. Maybe it was the white beans instead of squash for dinner. What a balancing act this is between nutrition/variety/weight loss

    Michelle woohoo woohoo woohoo! You got your pants! I am soo proud of you and you won't have droopy drawers any more....or at least until you are too skinny for these! You've done really well on the soda!

    Great news Tia that you are getting compliments . Someone noticed my weight today too and it does lift the spirit!

    Tweety, what are the sideways backwards that are so good for us. Huh?

    Roh you look mahvelous girlie!
