Is there room on this thread for a arthritic, tough old rooster to join?

I am calorie counting with a little Volumetrics thrown in. I have been below my daily calorie goal since December 30th. This might be a record for me.

I record my eating on My Fitness Pal. My user name there is lhawley2081 if anyone wants to friend me, please do so.

Feeling good about 2014, maybe this is the year I finally stick with it.

Welcome Larry! We always have room for more!

I weighed this morning and I am down 2 lbs from last week. I am pleased since I can't seem to get and stay OP. Healthy meals are planned for the week. It will include lots of veggies and lean meats..

Hi Larry, Jump right in!

Yesterday was not a good day. I was in the car minus any healthy snacks and it got past lunch time. You've got it - fast food and bad choices. I did what I could to stay OP the rest of the day but believe me, the damage was done. Today will be OP.

Glad to have you Larry!

POP day yesterday and again today. Struggling putting exercise in to the equation. Also thinking of changing from the simply filling plan to the points plan. Clean eating has been so good for me - not having to record each bite has been awesome too. Ready to broaden my menu I think. Will wait to make a decision when WI comes around on Friday.

My day didn't go as planned but it was still POP! Hubby is under the weather so we put exercise off till another day.
It just amazes me how fast his glucose numbers go down when he eats right.

I was on plan today and under my calorie goal but I ate a lot.

It was a beautiful day today in Central Florida, Sunny this after noon and about 80 degrees. I took advantage of the nice weather and put in a couple hours preparing my garden for planting. I worked up quite a sweat doing this and it felt good. The chance of frost is usually gone by the beginning of March. So far we have not had a freeze this year.

I am a daily weighed when in track. Scales went down 1.2lbs. I know it's water but at least it's off my body!

Good evening all

I had a good on plan day today. I had my first visit to a new cardiologist today. I like him. My blood pressure was 106/50 which is normal for me. He took an EKG which was also normal. Doctors and nurses always seem surprised when they see a person of my weight with low blood pressure.

Another pop day is in the books! Scales went down another .8 I am super thrilled and because that puts me back in the 250s
Tonight is church and I will eat there. It's taco night so my plan is a salad with just a few chips. I will skip dessert!! I will skip dessert! Hoping if I tell myself enough times I will do it.
I feel a lot better with cold going away. I know cough will hang on.
My mom called me and said her suprise Lilly are coming up. I thought no way after the below zero temps we have had. I was surprised to see some of mine have broke the ground also. Hoping it's really a sign spring will come early but with Easter being late in April , I'm not getting my hopes up much.

How is everyone doing?

Morning all - enjoying the normal, boring routine I has missed so much. POP days continue - no exercise does too. Guess I'm just not ready for that.

Stay warm - enjoy your day.

POP for me yesterday too. Hit the grocery store yesterday. Stocked up on fruits and veggies and they had boneless, skinless chicken breasts on sale. I was happily surprised to find pork tenderloins by one get one free. Now one is in the freezer and the other will get cooked tomorrow. YUM!

It's not been my best week. Weigh in my be iffy tomorrow.

I ate cake. Not beating myself up over it! I came in about 1600 calories. I lose best at 1200-1300. My mind is much better and my portions are measured. I will try again next wk to say no.

Winds of change are blowing for me. These past two weeks of very basic clean eating have been great for me. After WI tomorrow I plan to change to one of the other WW plans and introduce a few more foods into my menu. I know me and I'm starting to feel "deprived". Reading that it's a pretty funny statement because looking at me you'd never guess I was food deprived.

So glad today is my Friday as I'm still playing catch up at work from being gone a week, holidays and then year end stuff.

Let's do this!

EEK! Between bad choices and retaining fluid I managed to gain 2.25 lbs this week. Back at behaving and accepting that I can't mess with my program. (Like I don't know this when I do it.) Like Deb says there's no sense beating myself up about it. I just need to make better decisions.

Go Carol!!

I had a big lunch yesterday so I skipped dinner! It feels good to be able to save a day. I still came in closer to 1500 calories.
Snow day here but mainly just a icy dusting from what they Are saying.
