Default Hello

Hello

I was part of that Golden Girls thread, but little by little everyone has left. Kind of sad. I used to come here ~ came here pretty much daily since joining in 2000 and share stuff. I haven't posted in a while, but thought I would tonight.

Kind of silly, but I had a NSV (non scale victory) tonight. I baked a cake at my granddaughter's request for tomorrow for Mother's day for her mom. One of those little Jiffy cakes. They are just the right size ~ a few pieces without much left overs. I didn't even lick the beaters or spatula. Yippee for me.

She bought this cute mother's day card that had a doggie on it and it said something about taking time in life to stop and lick the icing. So to go with this she bought and wrapped a container of icing and asked me to bake the cake.

Happy Mother's Day tomorrow to all the mother's out there.

ETA ~ Oops ~ I was just looking back at my post ~ it was Father's Day ~ we made the cake because it was my daughter's birthday. Every few years her birthday and Father's Day fall on the same day. So, I got mixed up. Wished a friend Happy Mother's day ~ she nicely told me it was Father's Day ~ I hadn't realized my mistake until then. LOL

Another NSV ~ I helped my granddaughter frost the little cake I made last night for her mom's birthday. Didn't taste any of it or even have a piece of cake. That is huge for me.

Hello Glynne!

I used to post a lot in another 50+ thread a year or so ago. It died out too. Fantastic that you were able to resist the temptation of chocolate decadence! I recently started Atkins induction and have successfully stared down pizza, donuts, chocolate covered cherry cake, a giant platter sized cookie and a salted caramel macaroon. I work 2nd shift and these landmines were all brought by well meaning families and co-workers within the past week! Donuts, pizza, cookies, cakes and ice cream have always been a terrible weakness of mine! So I understand what a victory that was for you! Stay strong!

Some days good (with the eating), some days not as good. My husband and I are doing that Eat to Live way of eating (Dr. Joel Fuhrman). We've been doing it for a couple years now. He does better than I do ~ that is always the way it has been with the eating (frustrating that he is almost perfect at it). I follow it more loosely. Even though I don't do it to the letter, I am eating way better than I did for a long time. And because of a recent little health scare, I have finally (hopefully) reined in my struggle with sweets. I have done really well with that ~ that is huge for me, as sweets have been my life long struggle.
