Hi all!! Man, already 5 days into the month - time is flying!!

Not much time for personals today but glad to see new faces in here as well as the oldies I lost 5 pounds in May and targeting the same or a little more for June (will be in Europe for a week so the goal is just to maintain that week).

Hope you guys are doing well

Sarah, I'm sure it's healthier no doubt . I've never tried to make hummus. Please share your recipe I didn't know I like it until a friend bought it and I said let me try it. The Sabra has 70 calories, 4 carbs, 2 grams fiber, 2 grams protein for a 2 tblsp serving.

Olivia you're a great MOM You've had a great day thus far, way to go

Mary, LOL, at least you did it, way to go Mary it you click the recipe tab you can add your own ingredients to form your own recipes that you can chose to share or not. Your information may be healthier than the person that input that. You will notice on MFP that people come up with the craziest numbers some only adding net carbs or not adding the sodium and such. Just compare a few things that you eat to what's already there Just about everything I've eaten today had to be corrected. Just my two cents Please share your spicy black bean dip recipe. I like to try new things.

akelly, good to see you Congratulations on 5lbs GONE Enjoy Europe

I am up 1.2lbs to 159.6. I have had a completely unplanned off point day but I have enjoyed it all. I hope I now have all of my snacking out now since I can't think of anything else that I want. I do plan to have some beans and maybe a corn muffin for dinner. We'll see

Where did my post go?! I honestly thought I posted this morning. Weighed in at 192.3, probably because I was too tired to eat dinner last night, complete crash and burn. Which means, that I'll likely have an up tomorrow. C'est la vie!

Spicy Black Bean Dip
Author: Savory Sweet Life / Alice Currah
Prep time: 5 mins
Total time: 5 mins
Serves: 6

Quick and easy black bean dip that is delicious and healthy!
Ingredients

black beans, drained and rinsed
fresh salsa (mild, medium, or hot)
fresh cilantro, including stems
fresh lime juice
cumin
garlic salt
chili powder
kosher salt

they don't give you any amounts, so I just winged it. I used one fresh lime, a handful of cilantro..a 1/4 cup of salsa and about a tsp. each of cumin, garlic salt, and chili powder. skipped the kosher salt. It could have been more spicy, so next time I will add more chili powder.

What I love about logging the daily weigh-in on this site is that it makes my goals seem more attainable! When I see 248...but my goal is only 240-244 for the month and I see I have so many days left to make it...I know it's possible!

Olivia--I can't wait until I get to where I have no worries about all this stuff. I've been there before, but right now I'm certainly not. It'll come. Good for you for doing the hard work to get to that place.

Rennie--Hummus: In a food processor or blender put 1 can of chickpeas, drained, about 1/4 cup of Tahini (I tend to use a little less), the juice of one lemon, salt, and garlic and some water. Keep adding water until it's the right consistency. I usually don't add all the lemon juice at once and then just put it in and taste till it's right. Same with salt...just add a bit at a time. You can also add roasted red peppers, or herbs, etc.

Overall a good day...I had a great walk and ate relatively well (a little more at dinner than I needed, but it was all healthful food).

LGW, way to go

Thanks for the recipe Sarah glad to hear you had a good day

Well dinner didn't go as planned in my head and I ended up having a slice of cake from Harris Teeter. My calories today were much higher than they have been in a while. I did 4.75 miles so I'm feeling good about that. I will probably have an up on the scale but it'll go back down on Saturday so I'm good. I will make tomorrow a healthy day

Thank you LGW, Sarah & Rennie! It's been a long time coming getting to a place of peace in my life about virtually everything. It took going through the fire, but it's all worth it to come out shining like a diamond Life will be what it will be. It's much easier to just ride the ebb and flow than resist.

Today I am up 0.50 lbs to 173.50 lbs. So I'm up a total of 0.75 lb from my low. Just normal water fluctuations. I'm thinking about maybe charting my daily weight here like LGW was saying.

This month, I don't have any weight loss plans. My only goal is to maintain the 170's. Then by the end of July, I'd like to hit my mini-goal #3 of 165.00. I've been losing super fast the past 4 months, so now I want to start practicing maintenance here and there. When I look at my ultimate goal, it's only 43.50 lbs away!! I've given myself until June 2016 (2 years) to reach that goal so I have PLENTY of time!

Good morning ladies!

I'm sorry I haven't had much time for personals lately, but I read daily. Work and life have just been so incredibly busy that I don't have the time to write messages to each of you right now, but I'm sending positive vibes your way to each and every one of you.

I am up this morning, but not nearly as much as I thought I would be. Up 0.3 to 192.6. Interesting. I'm feeling dehydrated this morning though, all the caffeine that I've been chugging to wake myself up. I need to balance it out with water today.

Olivia -- I like the idea of intermittently working on maintenance!

Hi Kukkie! Don't worry, no expectations...just pop in when you can

LGW - yes, this is something new I am trying. I've never been able to maintain, so I have decided to make maintenance an important part of the journey. I am at a size and weight where I'm very pleased with how I feel and look so now is the time to start putting it into practice.

I like the sound of this ... I can't wait to get there ... I know patience is key, everything happens in due time. SO SO happy for you Great outlook also on getting to your ultimate goal. Peace ... you are definitely there

Kukkie no problem like Olivia said and you already know pop in when you have time

LGW

I'm up this morning also .4 to 160. Today will be a low day so it will balance out and I will be back down tomorrow. I kind of like this high/low way of eating. Doesn't make me feel so bad about the scale numbers or maybe I'm just growing up

Have a great day everyone

Today wasn't nearly as bad as yesterday, but not like I wanted either. I did make it to the gym. I'm hopeful that tomorrow will be better Have a great evening everyone

ETA TODAY WAS REALLY CLOSE TO YESTERDAY. I forgot to add two things ... still hoping for a good weigh in or at least the same as today
