No food challenges today! After a very bad eating weekend, I'm ready for a week of boring, low-points eating.

Monday
1 cup Special K with Berries 2
1/2 cup 1% milk 1
Subtotal = 3

Snack
1 granola bar 2
1 piece cake 7
Subtotal 12

Drat that cake! And they sprung it on me after I had already eaten my granola bar. It was a co-workers birthday cake, and I only ate it to be social. I have a plan to make up for it though.

Bailey, good luck cutting back on the butts. Never had to conquer that myself, so I can only imagine how tough it must be. You can do it, though! Did you bring any green beans for a snack?

Lunch
1 cup oatmeal 2
1/2 cup 1% milk 1
1 cup apricots 1
Subtotal = 16

Hey Liz, we're both up to 12 points before lunch! Good luck with the hunger pangs!

Snack
Handful of gummy bears 3
Cliff bar 5
Subtotal = 24

I needed the Cliff bar before I went to play tennis from 5:30 - 7:00.

Dinner
Grilled cheese 7
1 cup tomato noodle soup 3
Total = 34

Would have been much better if not for the cake, gummy bears, and Cliff bar.

Monday 04-22-02 Goal = 20-25

Breakfast
Slimfast 4
Yogurt 2
Subtotal = 6:eek: For breakfast?

Hi all - am going to try to cut down on cigaretts today - but also am determined to keep my points down - so expect a LOT of low point foods (now that my dairy is out of the way:D )

Lunch
6 sushi 3
diet coke 0:(
2 prunes 1
Subtotal = 10

Dinner #1
2 oz chicken 2
gravy 1
1 can green beans 0
Subtotal = 13

Dinner #2 (plan)
1 C tomato soup 1.5
2 slices light bologna 3
2 c lettuce 0
1 T dressing 1
little feta .5
Subtotal = 13 + 6 = 19

Snack
1 peppermint patti 1
1/4 C ice cream 2
2 T chocolate sauce 2
1 peppermint patti 1

Total = 19 + 6 = 25

Bank = 0
Weekly Bank = 0

Fruit = 1
Veggies = 6
Milk = 2
H2O = @2 L
Alcohol = 0
Exercise = +

Lee: sorry about the cake! Oh, well, Just try to be good tonight - tomorrow is a new day! and yes, as a matter of fact I do have a can of greenbeans for snack. When those afternoon hunger pains set in I plan on pulling my can opener out of my middle drawer, opening the can, draining the liquid and eating them cold with my fingers right out of the can. MMM good. Not even Martha could top that for classy! So far so good on the butts, I figured I would try to have 7 before I got home from work. It is 2:15 and I have had 5. I need 1 for the drive home at 6:00, so I will just have to be strong - if I weren't thinking about not having one, I wouldn't usually even have one between lunch and going home!

Liz: I agree, when starving after breakfast - biscuts and gravy are the way to go!:devil:

Bailey, sounds like you're doing great on the cigs. I read a tip to control eating snacks that works for me sometimes that may work with the cigs. You put your granola bar, or cookies, or whatever you have planned to eat in front of you (or next to your computer) and tell yourself that you're saving the snack until 3:00 (or whatever time you want to wait until). Then, I talk to the snack all day, like tell it "Man, I can't wait to eat you at 3:00. You are going to taste so good at 3:00." If you keep reinforcing the time you're going to have it, it kind of works at making you hold off. Whatever works, good luck!!!

Liz, looks like you're having a great Monday!

I hope nobody has a birthday here on Tuesday!

New and Improved Butt-kicking plan to get back with the program:

1) Will not have anything else to eat until I have had 2 Fruits and 3 veggies. Once these are eaten, 2 dairy's will be allowed. Once those are done, 3 more veggies. Only then can I have all the things that have been making up my whole diet as of late.

2) NO beverages of any kind until 2 liters of H2O have been consumed. Then, can have my slimfast, but still no soda until another liter is gone. Limit: 1 soda per day (try to work back down to 0-2 a week). Alcoholic beverage limit for week = 4.

I'm on a food hangover. My sister and her husband arrived yesterday, and I prepared a feast for them. The good thing about it was that we started eating (and drinking!) and 1:30 and didn't finish until 4:00, so it was the only real eating I did all day. Here are the gory details:
