Yes one each per meal, but she gives you the amount (which sometimes is like 2 servings). I like it because it is easy.

Default Hellow All!

DeeLou-Hope you feel better.

Hubby and I weighed in this morning and had a role reversal, usually he loses weight and I manage to find it, but today I am down 1/2 pound and it found it's way to him!

Will be heading out to Dallas tomorrow after Church for Market, so may not be back on until Wednesday, am bringing my tablet, so I may have time to "chat" we will be back Tuesday evening. It's about a 9 hour drive. Going order Christmas for the shops.

Have a blessed day all!

Default Mashed Cauliflower

I *forgot* I had gotten a Magic Bullet from Kohl's with my Kohl's Kash after Christmas, so I unboxed it today to use it to make mashed (whipped) cauliflower.

It was AMAZING...OH MY GOSH!! Smooth and creamy. Definitely on the "comfort food" list. Tasted, and texture like the best mashed potatoes I ever ate.

Son complained about the smell in the house. Too bad!

Tam I got the book yesterday and I love it! I like it because it is so simple and it is based on what has always been my own approach to meals...protein, carb and fat. As I read it I realized what I've been doing wrong though. I've been eating 2-3 carb serving at a meal, am allowed protein 4-6 oz a day but I eat less than that (I haven't been counting milk as a protein since for a diabetic, milk is a carb), one grain, and one dairy and all the non-starchy veggies I want as that's what my dietician told me to do. But a carb serving of rice is only 1/3 cup and that is very little! Instead of eating a whole cup (3 carb serv) of rice and not having any other carbs, I'd eat only that one carb serving of rice and then have fruit. milk or a mocha frappe for dessert, thinking I was ok because I wasn't going over my limit. Then being hungry soon after. I'm going to try this and see whether it will ease my hunger. At least it's worth a try. I eat healthy at least 80% but I just snack too much.

I thought there were a few contradictions ..she says if we really need it we can have one teaspoon of real syrup (I always use sugar free) on pancakes (only eat when out to brunch), but says no sugar with oatmeal. What's the difference? Then in the analysis of meals one guy eats maple syrup flavored instant oatmeal and that's ok? I think there was another but can't remember what it was now.

Since I'm diabetic I will have to adjust it a bit and think I will use my judgement about this. I rarely use real sugar because of the carbs but do use 1/2-1 t. of brown sugar on my oatmeal or if I have it I use the Splenda Brown sugar blend or Stevia. I've been trying to get away from the Splenda products though. I prefer the brown sugar taste to Stevia in my oatmeal so this morning I did the 1-1-1 thing except I did add one teaspoon of brown sugar. I think I could have gotten along fine with 1/2 t. so next time would do that. Otherwise i had a good 1-1-1 meal. Of course it was a meal I often eat just like this so not a perfect test. I'll let you know how it goes.

Don't have much time...I have a nail appt soon and need to get ready. I thoroughly cleaned the small bathroom and did most daily stuff but will have to finish the main bath when I return. It's another pretty day, sun shining.

Bobbi ~ the fabric you print the pictures on is special fabric ~ made in sheet sizes ~ the same size as computer paper. I bought mine at the Jo Ann Fabric store. My FIL's wife gave me the info about it. She bought the brand made by Dritz. The store near me had that and other brands. The Dritz ones were kind of pricey, so I bought one of the other ones.

My squares are going to be 8" X 8". I am going to do the pictures in 5" X 7" size. I figure I can get two pictures on each sheet of fabric that way.

Here is a picture of the package of fabric sheets I bought.

Good Sunday everyone!! I am ready for church except my hair is still damp. I prefer to air dry it as it usually looks better when I do. Well, I survived yesterday on 1-1-1. I had NOTHING to eat last night after dinner! A NSV for me ! I went to bed early (for me), about ten and by then I was hungry! I almost caved but I didn't. I slept well but think it was more than I had to sleep after not sleeping hardly any the previous night. However, if eating like this will help me my bs, my weight AND help me sleep that would be great!!

I also only had two meals yesterday due to going out for appt. but did have one (not so healthy but still 1-1-1) snack. Here are my stats.

Calories 918
Carbs 118
Fat 28
Sodium 465
Fiber 12 (too low as my doc wants 30-40)

Hopefully I'll get three meals today in order to get good nutrition and more fiber. I cannot usually have a snack due to my bs.

Bobbi - I would only be able to have one of those muffins for breakfast because of the two carb serv in each. And on the 1-1-1 plan I could only have one anyway as only allowed one carb per meal. They sound good though!

ETA: Forgot to say I dropped a pound this week, so only 3# now to go to get back to sig weight. Probably most of the loss was due to yesterday! LOL

Good Sunday morning, whoops it is already afternoon! I found myself less paranoid and more upbeat this week end now that I have taken off some sluggish weight.
I know someone out there has the smarts to walk me through this...How do I get a photo that is on my phone tp post here in a forum post? I want to show you all what I eat for breakfast.

Who know how to do this?

Lucinda you will have to connect your phone to your computer and upload the photo. Make sure you know where the photo is going so you can find it. then go through the uploading on this site by browsing for the photo and selecting it. Be sure to save the change. It should upload unless it is too big. I hate when that happens!

Here's the pix from 5 yrs ago L then last weekend R. The last one was taken by a slightly shaky friend lol. Not quite as sharp as I would like but "Oh, Well."
Down to 1 lb from goal (or there already, I'm not that crazy over a single pound.) My DH has lost 5 of his 14 lbs to goal - now at 179!! We didn't even buy popcorn at the movie last night. I smuggled in some water with lime juice in it and a couple of squares of 70% dark chocolate for us as a movie treat. I know, my bad for smuggling, but if they offered good stuff at the theatre we'd buy.

Looking great, Liana!! You're good inspiration! Doesn't look like your DH needs to lose an ounce! He's very thin already!
