Hi lovelies!

It's fairly quiet around here at the moment. I'm really just plodding along marking time, which isn't necessarily the best thing. My eating isn't fantastic - could be worse, but it could be a heck of a lot better, so I need to get back to basics there, I think. Having said that, lunch yesterday was a salad made from lettuces out of my garden which was very cool.

Well, the new trainer is very enthusiastic. Either that or she's got a very good mobile phone deal. She's texted me every day, which is nice, but yeah, it's a little odd. She texts me more than my friends do!

So yeah, not much to report. Talk to you all tomorrow!

Hi Nicole!
great to find someone from NZ on here.
Trying hard to keep typing so I don't go to the fridge and eat chocolate.

Today I ate:

2 crumpets with plum jam
1 cup red bush tea with 1 teaspoon of honey

2 slices white bread
2 gherkins
2 tablespoons piccallili
2 thin slices tasty cheese
1 homemade choc choc chip bikkie
1 apple

1 mandarin
3 rice crackers
1 homemade choc choc chip bikkie
1/2 carrot

1 cup red bush tea with 1 t honey

2 fish cakes
1 1/2 kumera lightly roasted in grapeseed oil
8 yams also roasted
3 broccoli florets
2 tablespoons sour cream (lite) dip
2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce

1 bite of cheese and bacon quiche

ANd hopefully that's it! even typing it is making my willpower stronger.
lost 5 lbs this week now 181. BUT trying hard not to slip back to that old mindset that losing weight is easy, I can eat what I want, then I rocket back up!!

Going to bed now without eating that delicious green and black chocolate that i so should not have bought at the supermarket yesterday!

Best of luck

Popping in for a quick hello. :D

Did NOT do well on food over the weekend. Had the kids and their friends in and out all weekend. Cooked and baked more so in the end I ate more.

I work the later shift today so hopefully I will cycle back to more the norm and back on track.

I'm trying to keep busy. I'm on my third pair of crocheted slippers and have knit one scarf for the kids. It occupies my mind and my hands so it's a win , win... can't think about the stuff that depresses me and my hands are busy so they aren't traveling to and from my mouth!!!

My oldest moves back from Ohio today and in with her dad. Looking forward to seeing her. Her seasonal job at Cedar Pt ended last night. Her sister drove down to pick her up and bring her home.

Starting to fret about the holidays coming, and thinking about baking and cooking... how sick is that.

Hope everyone has a great OP day!!!!!

Hi everyone. Quick post for me. I'm up 3 pounds.... I'm not sure why, but I'll stay on plan and keep moving this week. I think I am not paying enough attention to every meal, every bite.

Have a good week everyone!

Hi everyone! I am trying to get myself ready for the conference--we leave tomorrow morning.

The scale didn't move this week, BUT is due very soon, so I know that is why. The good news is, I tried on some pants last night that I couldn't zip a month ago and they fit. they are snug, but I can wear them!

I'll try and pop in either later or tormorrow morning. I am not taking my lap top (don't want to be tempted to work!), but I will be able to check in from my phone.

Hope you are all doing well!!!

This weekend could have been better -- it was my birthday on Saturday, and the past week or so has been one gigantic week long celebration it seems. I had 2 birthday cakes, both times the people who made/bought it for me tried to get me to eat a second piece, but I refused and tried to take a small-ish piece. At any rate, I only gained 0.7lbs, so considering that I was eating cake, candy, and the whole nine yards, I'd say that was pretty good. I did a LOT of walking, and actually on Saturday I walked over 11,000 steps (or around 5 miles), which I'm sure helped.

I'm ready to get back on track, and managed to do that today. I'm trying to give myself credit for all of the small positive choices I've made lately, even when I've made some mistakes. It's one thing I've learned from the Beck Diet Solution book I've been reading.

I did my exercising today, and I have to say, I felt very productive and got a lot of things done, which is a far cry from my usual line about how I never have the time to accomplish everything I need to. Overall, I'm feeling energized and ready to knock this out of the park!

I hope all of you ladies are feeling as inspired as I am. :carrot:

So we had a health and wellness expo thingy at work today. Some of it was great - loved the massages! - but some of it seemed to be a bit strange. Anyway, my blood pressure is exactly where it should be (not really surprised by that), glucose is good and so's my cholesterol. In other words, I'm as healthy as a horse!

The gym this morning was good. I had a really good, hard cardio workout - my legs were actually a bit wobbly for the rest of the day! I'm feeling quite proud of myself for that!

And work is quiet. In theory this should be our quiet time - heading into summer and Christmas - but yeah. It's just about too quiet! Still, I really can't complain too much...

So the menu today was:

B - English muffin, vegemite, low fat cheese

S - yoghurt

S - muesli bar

L - leftover stirfry from last night

D - pasta - mushroom ravioli with pomodoro sauce.

Angel,[/B yay another Kiwi! Very exciting! I love Wellington - went to University there and was up Labour weekend for a hens night and we had an awesome time. I'm based in Christchurch, BTW.

[B]Beverly, I'm pleased your visit went well, but sorry to hear about your son. Sending lots of get well vibes

Jab,[/B keeping your hands busy is a great idea.

[B]Diane, hi!

MJ, great pants NSV! Have fun at the conference!

Rakel, happy birthday for Saturday! Hope you had an awesome day! And 11,000 steps! You're a machine!

Have fun everyone!

Think healthy thoughts, friends.

hi...I fell of the face of the earth last week. I actually had my granddaughter who is 12 months old and she takes up all my free time.
I am down 2lbs from last wed. I went to the dr and faced a 16lb gain from my lowest weight.I am doing as the dr suggested and eating 1200 calories for 2 weeks and not suppost to weigh till the 2 wks is over.I had to take a peek.
I may try grabbing some slimfast to have on hand incase a meal time comes and I dont have time to make a healthy meal for myself. I have found that to be my biggest downfall...just skipping meals.
breakfast- an egg ww toast
lunch- beef and veggie stirfry
dinner- egg omlette with mushrooms bell peppers and onion ff cheese toast
snack - yogurt and berries

Hey everyone. I've been working on staying on plan and getting back to more consistency. So far, this week has been pretty good. Today I went to spin class. That's always a motivator. I just have to work really hard at keeping on plan for food.

dgramie: That might be a good thing to do, with the slimfast. You might also try having some string cheese or something like that handy. Then, you can get a little protein, too.

Beverly: Hang in there. Best wishes being sent your way!

Nicolen: Sounds like you had some good reports on your health! That's great!

Rakel: Good to hear your positive attitude! You're doing so good!

MJ: Congrats on the pants! It's always good to see that clothes that didn't fit before are fitting now. THAT shows progress.

Have a great day everyone.

My bloat currently is ridiculous. I've been sick a week now and am finally on the upswing. Drinking my calories and my weight times 50 in sodium between the sprite and gatorade that has been keeping my tummy pain at bay. Feeling better now though and ready to get rid of this BLOAT. So back on the wagon as of right now.

This morning was not good.

So far I've polished off at least 3 servings of pretzels, 2 huge cups of gatorade and a sprite. I also ate some chocolate candy and a handful of Kix. *sigh*

But I'm not starting over tomorrow. I'm starting today. With a focus on healthful foods. I might go over my calorie allotment for the day due to overeating this morning, but as long as the rest of the it's with healthy foods I'll take it.
I'm thinking about easing into some exercise today as well. Nervous though. It was a really tough 2 video exercise session a week ago today that set off my stomach bug last week (realistically I know the exercise didn't make me sick, but it's like when you eat something and throw up...you know it wasn't that food that made you sick but you are nervous about it the next time you eat it nonetheless!).

I didnt eat according to my plan yesterday but still made good choices and calories came in perfect. I have to get labs this morning so just sipping water instead of my coffee. I am down 4lbs now from last wed.Hoping this will continue till Im back to my lowest mark....only 12 more lbs to go.
heater- glad your feeling better
Diane_ I always keep string cheese handy. It really helps me.
breakfast- smoothie
lunch-stir fry i didnt eat yesterday
dinner- great northern beans or breakfast meal( big difference I know but letting hubby pick.

11-04-2009, 12:07 PM
Dang. I had a reply and then it went away. Try again...

Had a good on plan food day yesterday, so that was good. I wanted to go get some ice cream, but I talked myself out of that, so little victory. I went to the gym this morning and did my weights. I might be sore tomorrow, but it felt good to get it done. Just have to keep on track.

dgramie: Mmmm! Cornbread. Stay strong!

MJ: Glad the conference is going well!

Heater: It is so hard to come back after being sick. Keep trying. Hope you get to feeling back to 100% soon!

Hi to everyone else!!

Hey all, just checking in!

Yesterday was great... I stayed within my calorie limit even though I went out to eat for lunch, and managed to stay away from the leftover halloween candy at work. So far today I've stayed on plan, even though someone brought in donuts to work today in edition to the leftover candy from Monday, I did not have a bite! I found it helpful to verbalize that I was not going to eat any, because I didn't want to go back on my word.

One thing I've noticed is that even though I'm eating 2,000 calories a day, I'm still pretty hungry at night. It is sooo hard for me to resist snacking, and I've been trying hard not to eat anything after 8pm. I think it's just because I got used to eating larger portions again, and eating whenever I felt hungry so my body just needs to readjust. I know 2,000 calories should be plenty for me to feel full on, and I've made sure to try and eat foods that have a lot of fiber and protein.

Now... to do my exercises and get some laundry and work done!

I'm new here but going to give this a try even though we're half way through to nov 8. I've had a good/bad week. I told myself I would get through to exercising at our local fitness center (its free and my kids are in school so I have zero excuses). For the rest of the week thursday & friday at the very least, I will go exercise, walk on the treadmill or whatever i'm in the mood for. Do I come back here and report in next week or how does this work? Or is it simply for ourselves to write it down and kick ourselves in the butt?

TexanGal: you can post your menus, different goals you have for the day/week, and report on how well you did. It's also helpful to get advice, talk about problems you're having and get encouragement. Just write whatever you want... and welcome to the group :) I've been here off and on for over a year now, I actually just started posting again a few weeks ago. These ladies are wonderful :)

On another note, I've lost all the weight I gained over the weekend plus another half pound, so I am BACK!

Good for you Rakel, great news that you're losing:carrot:
weight that is!
And hi Texangal, I'm new too, trying to log in here whenever I feel a craving....like now!

Not too successful today, which is a real shame cos I've lost 7 pounds in 10 days from just eating healthy - now come the mind games where I tell myself it's only water, what I eat doesn't matter, that weight loss won't last....NO:devil: none of that is true is it? :o

today's resultant bad day:
bf - 2 slices toast w/ butter, marmite and jam (not together)
snack - half slice choc brownie + 1 oatmeal cookie
lunch - a 'friend' brought round potato chips. I resisted then ate about 50g.
- 2 scrambled eggs no oil, a pear
snack - other half of choc brownie, apple, two meal mates, cheese, piccallili
tea - macaroni cheese, smidge of bacon, meat patties
now - three small squares 70% dark choc!!!

damn! :^:

Today no breakfast, I slept through it! I LOVE not having class on Fridays! Lunch is going to be more lentils(i might be slightly obsessed), with some carrots and green beans mixed in, some nice hot potatoes, banana, and maybe some sausage. All mixed together(except for the banana, of course). And a raw carrot too, because I love raw veggies. Dinner tonight, we are going to an apéritif, so I have to be careful not to snack too much.

TGIF!!!!!! I am off this weekend and have a whole slew of stuff to do or catch up on. Why is it always that way....lol.

Tried a couple times to log in yesterday but I just kept stalling, don't know if it was my connection or the website.

Food has been ok, could be better.

I bet some of it is water, but it's because our bodies are retaining more water than they should. I bet at least some of it is fat though, too. I always start out losing a bunch of weight the first month, and then it levels out after that. At first it's really discouraging, and the last time I ended up stopping and then gained everything back and then some, so this time I'm preparing myself for that. You'll see a drop off, but don't be discouraged! It's normal!

Lots of sweets in there! Once you indulge in a little, you end up wanting more. At least that's how it is for me. Then again, if I ignore it altogether I have much more success. Out of sight, out of mind.

Of course, today I had a little bit of chocolate and ate an extra dinner roll when I went out to eat than I had planned, but over all I stayed within my calories, AND lost another .5lbs... on a roll :)

Hi everyone! I'm home. We had a great time! I did ok, overall, w/ food, could have done better....but every time you turn around there is food at these things. I went overboard on desert a couple times, but that's ok. We walked a lot and I drank LOTS of water. Now that I am home, back on track!!!

Hope everyone is doing well!

Last night hubby wanted to get a movie at blockbuster, so we walked over (it's literally right next to our apartment complex), and while he was there he bought some soda and a king size Twix. I'm proud to say that I did not eat any of it since I was already over my calories and it was unplanned sweets. I thought I would give in, but once the movie started I didn't even think about it.
