I've been a bit of a stranger...big life changes and other things...but I am proud to say that in the midst of the craziness, I've managed to stay within four pounds of my end-of-2009 goal. I really would like to hit that Onederland before my birthday (June 14) though. If I go back to my goal of one pound a week, I can blow it out of the water before then.

At the moment, I'm so po' I can't afford the o and the r. :lol: I have eaten pretty much just peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and apples for a week. Payday is tomorrow, though (HIP HIP HOORAY!!!!), so I will be able to stock up on fruits and veggies. (Esp. veggies...my diet has really suffered because fresh veggies are so freakin' expensive!!!!)

So that's my goal: a pound a week to Onederland by my birthday. :)

I think it is beyond awesome that you can maintain during craziness. That means when you hit your goal..... you have a jump start on how to maintain.

I hope you get to have the "o and r" this week..... and then go from poor to comfortable! I think for most of us, we would like to be rich..... but comfortable is good.

Good Luck, and again, I commend you!

You are doing great! Way to rock it. Beans are good and cheap too!

I have been having a po streak too. I usually get mostly frozen veggies - cheaper than fresh and still more nutritious and tasty than canned. I still get some fresh, stuff that's on sale or I can't find in frozen and must have (spaghetti squash). I also get beans and lots of chicken and tilapia (a tasty white fish that is usually quite cheap).

Congrats to you for maintaining through it!
