Sheesh. Just as I thought the family was feeling better and all we had was residual runny noses - Calvin pukes all over the supermarket floor (talk about embarassing - especially when a lady screamed 'GROSS!'). He has continued on about a 5 minute schedule since we got home (including all over DH's legs and feet in the front yard). He's now parked on a blanket on the living room floor with a movie and a bucket.

Needless to say, I haven't gotten around to eating much today. What I have eaten was OP, though.

B: was going to be eggs, got sidetracked and had a string cheese around 11.
L: eggplant parmesan (minimal ww breadcrumbs); sauteed mushrooms
D: hamburger sans bun, lettuce, tomato, mustard; salad;
S: watermelon

I also have to admit, I had a tiny (ok, two tiny) tastes of some lemon curd that I made this afternoon. It is so heavenly. I'm totally resisting going into the kitchen because I know I will take another teensy taste.

04-08-2009, 07:24 PM
Could someone please tell me if I'm eating too much. I've been maintaining and would like to lose another 10 lbs.

B: bowl of oatmeal w/skim milk. I added 3 chopped walnut halves, cinnamon, Davinci SF caramel, & 8 raisins
L: 1.5 cups of sausage/white beans/kale soup, skim milk
S: small apple w/Laughing Cow wedge + 5 almonds
D: spaghetti squash topped w/sauce made with ground turkey, tomato sauce, mushrooms, red peppers, spices, 2 slices low carb bread w/1 teaspoon promise, skim milk

tonight I will have mini bag of 94% popcorn or another apple w/ 1T pb

I'm getting really frustrated. Am I eating too much or too little? I exercise 30 minutes on treadmill, most days.

04-08-2009, 08:26 PM
The last few pounds are the hardest. Sometimes you have to ramp up your exercise a little. What's the stats on the low carb bread? Some of those aren't SB approved. I maintain on 3 grains and 2 fruit servings. What's the serving size on your dinner meal entree and your milk servings? Are you getting your healthy fats? Your menu looks pretty similar to mine on maintenance.

Vegetable Fiber Wheat Bread
Cal. 70 - 2 slices
0 fat
Total Carb 17 g.
Dietary Fiber 3 g.
Sugar 2 g.

milk servings 8 oz. I try to drink 3 servings a day, I have osteopenia.
Spaghetti squash, 1-1.5 cups, about 3/4 c. sauce.

I very seldom eat bread. I try to get my grains with steel cut oats, quinoa and bulgur. For dinner, when I stir fry my veggies, I drizzle olive oil. I usually will have at least a 1 T. of healthy oils. I know what a serving size is, and take that into account when I fill my plate.

Anne, I am also 5'3". I would like to get in the 130's and can't imagine being in the 120's again. I will be 60 this Sept, and my metabolism isn't what it used to be. Never had a weight problem until menopause. So, do you think I should eat less than a normal serving size?

Thanks for your input.

it doesn't look like you are eating to much it might be the you walk on treadmill. you might want to try to throw in a different kind of exercise ...maybe a video every now and then

I agree. I wouldn't want to cut your meal plan. I would try to get 2 Tbs. of fats a day. Sometimes the monounsaturated fats help with abdominal fat loss (some studies suggest). I would add weights to the treadmill walking and try to increase your incline to up your heart rate. Do you check your heart rate with exercise? Interval training is supposed to really help boost your burn.

04-08-2009, 09:57 PM
You gals are great.

I do 3 minute at 3 mph, then I pump it up to 3.5 mph. I do 4 mph a couple times in the 30 minutes for about 2 minutes. I keep my treadmill at 3.0 incline throughout the entire session. My normal heart rate is 50, very slow, and I get it up to 125 or 130. I've had knee surgery and don't have a full ROM, so 4 miles is as fast as I can go. Great idea about the weights, I'll do that.

Thanks again ladies.
