RIGHT, this month I am going to shift those pesky last three pounds. But equally, if I start to GAIN weight, I need to be aware that it's muscle, not fat.

I am also really, really, really close to being able to get into a UK size 8 skirt/trousers. By the end of July I'd like to be able to purchase my first size 8 skirt or trousers.

I am also absolutely categorically NOT going to eat any bread or pasta unless it's gluten free. It is a food intolerance I have but sometimes I lapse and just think 'must has' and eat it, and the consequences be damned. The problem is that when I do this, I gain weight and that's why I can't shift those last few pounds.

I can do this. YEAH!

I'm not having a very good day so far ... all I want to do is eat. :no: I have drank 3 ~ 24oz cups of water with lemon and nothing is helping me. So far I have ate=

Breakfast (334)
1/2 grapefruit, 1/4 cup egg beaters, 1/2 slice cheese, 1 slice turkey bacon, 1 slice whole wheat toast w/ tsp marg & tsp apple jelly

snack (215)
Special K bar 90 and 2 tsp of grits from my daughters plate (I did half of the calories for a serving since they had sugar and margarine 65 maybe?), oh and about a cup of grapes

Lunch (590)
Smart One Pasta & marinara meal, Parmesan cheese, grapes and sunflower seeds

NO AFTERNOON SNACK

Dinner (200)
Salmon, spinach, squash, 1/2 grapefruit

TOTAL CALORIES 1279

(typed after lunch/before dinner) I didn't eat all of the pasta because I was full. It was maybe a 1/3 cup left, not a lot but it made my daughter happy to finish it. But I just keep wanting to eat. What on Earth is going on today? I've had 1139 calories and no afternoon snack or dinner. Help:shrug: Then I just read all of this stuff about processed foods, so the lunch that I ate was all wrong. And I need to get more veggie/greens. 2 mile walk

My plan for the month, regardless of what else happens, is to finally see the 150's. I never have. I got down to about 160 - once- and then gained back to 180, so I'm going over old ground. I'm super-excited about seeing numbers on the scale that I've never seen before.

Yesterday my choices were good in terms of calories, but just DREADFUL in terms of nutrition. I ate: deli turkey (just... by itself), yoghurt, ice cream, chips, and cheetos. I made sure it fell within my 1500 calories for the day, and it really did make me feel better since I was eating things that I was worried I couldn't have on a diet, but as far as actual fuel, I fear it was absent. So that's a pattern that should maybe not happen again.

Today's goal is 1000 calories and I just woke up (I'm very nocturnal). I'm finishing up my second can of V8 juice as I type, but I should probably have more since that's only a total of 60 calories for breakfast, and I really don't want to be all hypoglycemic later.

I would say my biggest challenge is going to be figuring out how much to eat. I am good at making myself not eat very much, and I don't really get hungry, but I do worry that I will stall my weight loss. That's why I'm zigzagging my calories. It's working for the moment- in my first week I've lost 10 pounds- but I worry a plateau is going to kick in any time now.

Thanks for the welcome, here's what I've eaten today.

Breakfast:
Bowl of Kallo honey puffed rice and semi skimmed milk plus two cups of tea.

Lunch:
Quorn bolognese made with gluten free pasta, Quorn mince, chopped tomatoes and topped with a handful of cheddar cheese.

Dinner:
Ehehe, what dinner? Lunch filled me up loads so from 4pm when I got back from the gym all I've eaten has been three squares of Lindt Irish Coffee chocolate, two strips of baked breadcrumbed chicken and a glass of vodka and coke.

Today was a Bad Food Day. I haven't eaten enough and that's why my weight's been holding. When I started eating again, that's when I dropped more weight.

Argh argh argh argh *headdesk*

Impala and Wysteria - welcome!

Hello all,

So, as usual, I got onto the forum today without realizing that it was another month, but remembered before I posted to the June thread.

My Wednesday:

breakfast - smoothie (low fat organic plain yogurt, skim milk, a few almonds, banana, fresh blueberries, strawberries and cherries), my roommate brought a blender and we have plenty of ripe bananas, so this is a great start to the day!

snack - coffee, splash of milk

lunch - I went out to lunch with a group of students and profs to a Colombian restaurant. I had avena to drink (Latin American drink made with milk, water, ground up oats - sounds weird, but it's really tasty) and 3 tostones (fried plantain bites) with guacamole - an appetizer shared among 3 people. I didn't order a main dish because they all looked like too much, so I had an arepa (like a thick corn tortilla) with fresh cheese, and a side order of beans. Lots of water to drink, too.

I didn't have any dinner - wasn't hungry after a big, late lunch and it was the first day of my period which meant my energy and appetite were both lower than usual.

exercise: lots of walking, went to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.

scale: 199.5 :carrot: Hello, my friend 1 - good to see you again.

So my July goal - well, I'm in Boston til the 18th, and as I said I'm hoping to just maintain here, but I think my goal will be to see 196 by the end of the month. That might be ambitious, but I'm going to go for it. That would put me at 40 pounds gone!

Bad day. I had to take my dog in today to have a tumor taken off of her lower jaw. That wasn't too bad... except for the fact that she's my baby, and I wanted to make a bigger deal out of it (not in front of her of course), but my family was so nonchalant about it all, so I had to be strong and all as well. It just annoyed me and upset me because my dog has been living with my grandparents (I am now living with them), and they told me they never noticed it. This is something that doesn't get as big as it was (about half an inch in diameter) overnight. I mean... sure, yeah... it's on her lower jaw, but it's at the front of her mouth... so... I dunno. I guess it just upset me because I began to think "what else could they have missed?" Not as a getting mad at them kind of thing... just a worried mother type of feeling for my baby dog.

And... I feel terrible. I haven't gained, but I can't eat the way I was able to when it was just me and my parents. All my Grandma can get in our little town when it comes to fruits are apples (which I can't stand... I just really don't like the taste), peaches (which are OK... I guess), watermelon, and oranges. And I'm not allowed to go to the store to get my own stuff. But I probably will sneak off tomorrow or something and go to the store and get my own stuff... all this pasta, white bread, and ham is really not working for me right now.

And then I got yelled at by my Dad because apparently everyone has been forgetting/losing "EVERYTHING". My mom forgot all of our medicine in the house we had been living in (this is $100+ of medicine that was to be brought back to Serbia with us, stuff we can't get over there), my little brother forgot his Bible at church the other day (on the playground, and it's been raining the past couple days), and I nearly lost my wallet (ended up finding it, but not without a shouting match between my Dad and I... because apparently I lose "everything", and since I do, I don't deserve to own anything at all, etc). So yeah.


I dunno. I need to go on my run, take a good long bath, and then curl up in bed with a good book and maybe even cry a bit.


Here's my food:

Goal: 1500 calories
Daily Total: ~1650

Breakfast
Cheerios - 150
Milk - 140
Total - 290

Lunch
Hamburger w/White Bread Bun & Ketchup - 300
French Fries - 270
Total - 570

Dinner
Grilled Cheese Sandwich - 280
Macaroni and Chicken Casserole - 210
Total - 490

Other
Apple Pie - 300
Total - 300


And now I'm off for my C25K W3D2... *sigh*

Hi... Boy do I need this thread... Thank you Diana.

My immediate goal is to eat in moderation this weekend. I don't have a lot of plans. So I will have to stay busy on my own... and paws off the 'real' potato salad at the one cookout I'm going to on Monday. I am bringing a couple of par-baked potatoes to put on the grill, I'll add some salsa and stay away from the mayo...

I would like to lose 7 pounds this month. I can't wait to get to know everyone...

Thanks. Mine is a pit bull x lab x who knows what. I found her in Serbia, and had her there for four and a half years, and then we had her shipped over to the USA (and that was a nightmare in and of itself, for both her and for the guy bringing her, since we had arrived in July, when no animals were flying into Houston b/c the heat on the tarmac could kill them, but yeah, another time), and then a week after that my dad and the guy drove up to my grandparents' house because we found out the day we brought her home (after two months of waiting for an answer) that we couldn't keep her in the townhouse we were in. So yeah. I felt like a bad dog parent since then because though she is extremely well-mannered around people and isn't a nuisance, she is a very independent dog and likes to escape. And then all these other things kept coming up. And... I dunno. I want her inside with me again. I want her to sleep by my bed at night, I want her to curl up at my feet when I'm at my desk doing homework... and my grandparents are "absolutely NOT" when it comes to dogs being in even the tool shed outside, let alone inside the house on the carpet.

So yeah. I dunno... there's stress with that. She's my baby... and then came her tumor (it was removed without incident, I'm watching it faithfully to make sure there's no after-surgery stress or issues with it), and... I dunno. She lost all recall she used to have. She is still sweet and kind, but... I dunno. I feel as though I messed up with her. And now that I have her back with me... I'm going to be gone for another 4 weeks... and who knows what could happen during that time?

*sigh*

Overprotective mother here I guess... I dunno. Everything is going to be fine... I know deep down that this is true... it's just... I dunno. The worries are still there.


I do have a small victory. I weighed after my run (and this is a couple hours after dinner and after a cup full of diet dr.pepper): 209.4... so... I've gotten past my little gain from camp. Which is good.


so yeah.

Looks like you're doing awesome Diana! Keep it up. :D I always am amazed at how... well... well done all of your stuff is. :)


SweetCaroline... you can do it! I guess with the mayo... I get grossed out by it. Think of it as pure fat. It's practically lard itself. I dunno... just something to help you back away from it. :p Good luck!! I don't understand how people like that stuff... but if they do... they do... ;)

I bought a new wrap dress a while back - a size 16W. I figured with it being a wrap dress I would be able to wear it a while with losing weight. Wrong. I've lost 10 lbs since I bought the dress and it's too big. I took it back tonight and exchanged it for different style dress in a size 14 in Misses and got a second dress. I can't believe I bought two size 14 missy dresses - woo hoo. Now, there is no way I could get my behind into a size 14 in pants, but a dress worked. They are that stretchy material so that's another reason why I could wear the 14, but I am so excited. It wasn't too long ago that I wouldn't have even been able to come close to wearing the 16W, let alone a regular 14. These dresses should fit me for a while because of the styles they are - at least I hope so. :)

Food check-in!

5 cans of V8 (there really is no defense I can offer for the number except that I hate vegetables in traditional formats) -150 calories
2 yoghurts - 220 calories
1 slice turkey- 50 calories
14 pieces pepperoni-130 calories
1 string cheese- 50 calories
1 packet ramen- 400 calories

Yes, I eat pretty unclassily, but I'm actually pretty proud of today. All food groups were represented, and although I was hungry for a bit I felt a lot better after all the protein.

Total: 1000 on the nose! And I got around to freezing my usual 200 calorie bowl of grapes for tomorrow, so that'll be good. I'm also going to the movies. :/ As far as tragedies of the day, my scale is out of batteries and I don't have any more of the right sort. So, maybe a few days without weighing. Guess I can't do anything but stay on plan and try not to worry about it. I will do what I will do and my weight will do what it will do.

Sweetcaroline Hi and Welcome! :wave:

Kris WTG! Those smaller sizes are a great way to stay motivated. Yesterday I went to try on jeans again. Right now I am in size 20 jeans. The 18's actually fit. I think I am going to try to get out of the teens and then try on the a size 16W or 18 Misses. I have been buying jeans quite regular (not designer). I buy 3 pair at a time. That way I can get into the smaller sizes. It feels really good.

Diana ~ It does feel great to get into smaller sizes. I haven't really bought any pants - other than a few garage sale finds. I had some smaller sizes that I already owned that I've gone down into and even though they are looking pretty bad I'm still wearing a lot of the bigger sizes. Right now I can wear a variety of sizes (depending on what it is) ~ I'm really looking forward to saying "I'm a size _____" instead of the wide mix I currently have.

Hope everyone has a good weekend. I leave on Sunday to go see the new grandbaby ~ I'm ready, but know I will need to stay focused on the food plan while I'm there.

Right, today:

Breakfast:
Kallo rice puffs and semi skimmed milk again. Inventive :/

Then, to the gym for 45 minutes of **** aka spinning class. Dear lord it was hot. I was dripping at the end x.x

Lunch:
Jacket potato with cheese and baked beans. Mmm. And an energy drink because I honestly thought I was about to pass out.

Snack:
Three squares of Lindt Irish coffee chocolate. Be nice, Mother Nature is visiting still.

Dinner:
Oven baked potato wedges and a Quorn peppered steak with sweetcorn and peas. MMM.

And now, I'm enjoying a vodka and orange. I don't know how many calories I've taken in today but it's actually probably not as many as I think.

Writing down what I eat is really helpful because I realise I haven't eaten that many vegetables or fruit today. It's weird when I'm at home because I eat less of these here, at work I'm nibbling on apples and grapes throughout the day. I am really picky about my fruit and veg though. I will only eat broccoli, carrots, peas, sweetcorn and cauliflower, and for fruit I will only eat apples, grapes and at a push raspberries and strawberries. Ugh. Still working on this!

Snack:

oat fudge bar :(

Lunch:

tabathana Hi and Welcome! :wave:

Courtnie I definitely encourage you to post even though you don't feel you have done well on a particular day. Sometimes you can learn from your own posts or others can as well. We're not perfect. All of this is a work in progress. You may not think you are going to do well during the weekend, but maybe you can do well the next meal, and then the next. Take it one step at a time. You may do better than you think. ;)

MamaP - congrats on the smaller size! That is so motivating. I'm sure you look great in the dress.

My Thursday:

breakfast - smoothie with skim milk, fat free organic plain yogurt, banana, and this nut butter combo (peanut, almond, and flaxseed and pumpkin seed) Super tasty and filling and good protein and carb combo

snack - coffee w/ skim milk

lunch - leftover piece of steak, couscous cooked with tomato sauce and spinach.

dinner - leftover arepa (colombian corn cake) with canned fat free refried beans, and some baby carrots

dessert - some dark chocolate. Mmmm.

Big NSV today - got up at 5:00 am to join a running group. It's called 'back on my feet' and is for people who are coming out of homelessness and/or substance abuse or other issues and those who want to support them. We met at the Boston Common and ran along the Charles River, a 3 mile loop. I ran the whole thing and was happy with my pace and just really enjoyed the whole experience. Everyone was supportive and cheering everybody else on, and just really positive. Too cool! Wearing my skinny pants today and generally feeling on top of the world. It's a three day weekend and it's beautiful outside - let's go enjoy it everybody!

Jumping in :) Hi!
My goal for July is just got get back on track losing weight. I weight more than ever right now, I've gained about 20 lbs this year and I've got to do something to put the brakes on that. We just went on vacation to cocoa beach and the pictures of me in a bathing suit (I went through many rounds of argument with myself over buying a bathing suit to begin with, I can't remember the time before this I last wore a proper bathing suit to the beach), well they made me want to cry a little bit. Haha.
So here I am, trying to catch the wagon and jump back on it. I weighed 217 lbs when we got home from vacation (a personal high), and I weighed 213 today, about five days later.
Today I ate:
A cheese roll up--I make a snack sized (a tortilla wrapped around a piece of light string cheese, 100 calories) but I had one with extra cheese (shredded mexican blend) for lunch today, 200 calories.
Fritos and bean dip 195 calories
and I had the last two Godiva chocolates in a gift box I'd been given before vacation. usually I eat boxes of chocolate in one sitting, or at least one day. Small triumph. Lol. :)
The chocolate was 100 calories (and to die for).
So total 500 calories so far.
I'm not sure what to have for dinner. I want a cheeseburger and fries, but that's really out of the question. Leads me to think I need some protein though. Maybe a California Kitchen Pizza (even if I eat the whole thing, which I wouldn't, it's only 900 calories!) or a salad with grilled chicken.
Excited to join :) :wave:

Hi All,

Looks like this is a great, supportive group!

My goal is to lose at least 5 pounds this month by sticking to my daily calorie limits, recording all calories in FitDay, and being accountable for both by posting in this forum. If I also get in some daily walking, so much the better. So far for the first 2 days of this month, calories are right on target AND have been faithfully recorded in FitDay.

Diana, love your tracking of monthly progress. You are doing SO great! Very inspiring!

Penguin, Wysteria, Love2b, Impala, Kris, BlueRidge (congrats on the NSV), Serb, Caroline (fellow Red Sox fan here), Tabatha, Courtnie, Fashin, and Munchie: Good luck with your goals!

I love things like this!

Oh and Wysteria I'm in the same boat as you as far as pasta & breads. I need to avoid them. My family has a history of insulin resistance and I've found I always lose more weight when I cut down on the carbs. So that is going to be a continued focus of mine into July.

This is big and really, really, really super scary to post because in the past I've put up goals and then when I didn't achieve them got really :( and down.

It's so much harder for me to lose weight so I'm going to try to set a realistic goal for myself for the month of July, but I hope I lose more because I would need to so I can reach my end of summer goal. It's a big goal! Like huge! I am just trying to stay positive and think I can rather then do what I normally do and even though I try really hard to think I can I just don't do it. This time I'm trying to tell msyelf to just do it! Just get up, work harder, and do it!

So here is my July goal for all to see:

Before the end of July weigh 5.2 pounds lighter and be at 179.8! I still have not worked off my Christmas weight.

I'd feel awesome if I can get to 177! So I'm goign to focus on 177 but if I don't make that goal I'll still be happy if I make it at or below 179.8.

Thanks to all of you for the support and just telling your stories! Reading about what everyone is doing really helps! :)

love, I use 60 as well.

I have a question for the sushi fans in here. My friend and I are going to eat it for dinner tomorrow night and my favorite roll (shrimp tempura) has way too many calories, of course. I was wondering what kinds you all like to get and if you know the calorie count of them? I was looking online and found a few, but I wondered if anyone knew of any other resources because there's a million different kinds of sushi! Thanks! :)

fashinjunkie09: My favorite kind of sushi of all time is raw tuna. Only about 25 calories per piece, if there's nothing in it but nori, rice, and tuna.

Food for the day!

Today was really hard for me because I was spending it with friends who are both 17 year old boys, and they can eat ANYTHING. I went a little off plan at dinner, but I'm proud to say that even thought I wanted to eat a ton more after that, I didn't. I'm currently curled up in bed with a diet coke, feeling a little deprived, but still on plan.

1 yoghurt- 110 calories
1 small movie theater popcorn-500ish calories (best guesstimation given info I found on the web- if you know better, please tell)
Fried rice with peas and chicken- I'm going to say probably no more than 500, because it was cooked by someone trying to lose weight herself and I had a pretty small amount
Biscotti- 150

So, all in all, 1260 calories. Yeah, yeah, 60 over. Still, surprisingly good. And tomorrow's a 1500 calorie day. :D I can make it up then.

One more upsetting thing, though: I had been pretty depressed most of the summer. A couple of days ago I started snapping out of it, and all of a sudden I find I'm hungry when I didn't care what I ate before. I like feeling better, but I do not like the hunger. Grr. >:(

Hi everyone!

I'm new here, so bear with me as I find my way around the forum... :)

I just started my personal lifestyle change last week, and I realized how easy it is to slip when I'm not 100% prepared for what life throws at me... so maybe this accountability thread can help? I hope so!

I'm trying to eat Low GI / clean (so no counting calories), but I definitely was not quite on plan today:

Breakfast:
Vitamin D capsule (forgot about my multivitamin!)

milk, skim, 1 cup
oatmeal, 1/2 cup
flaxseed, 1 Tbsp
blueberries and strawberries, 1 cup

Snack:
12 almonds

Lunch:
2 c lentil vegetable soup

Snack:
1 small Godiva dark chocolate bar with raspberry flavor
1 package dark chocolate raspberry truffles

Dinner:
2 c lettuce
1 lg chicken breast, grilled
2 Tbsp salad dressing

Snack:
2 c sf ff frozen yogurt with chocolate and raspberries

So looking at this... I need to lay off the high GI snacks.

What made me feel like I need to eat all of this? I was frustrated with work, and not motivated to work on my research (I'm a grad student), so I went for a quick shopping trip, and I *accidentally* shopped for the wrong things ;)

Note to self: bring a fiction book to work, so that I can distract myself from future situations like this.

Other goals for this week: get at least two servings of dairy a day.


I hope everyone else had a more successful Friday ;)

7-1 oh another month. Ok today's weight 184.4. I'll take it.

I went a little crazy on the frozen coffee drinks I make myself--but i was for the most part on plan today.

7-2 185.8 blah! really? water bloat? or what???
Don't feel good.--feel like a sore throat/sinus infection coming on.
4 hours shopping/walking.
2 hours cleaning.

DID not stay on plan, but only ate 1630 cs. i ate most of my calories at night.

7-3--dare I try to be good? wt 186.2 Come on Really??? i am guessing all of the pizza is just sitting in my tummy.

Today, i am going to try to stick to the plan, that way i won't overeat, yesterday, i was so busy and DIDN'T eat during the day. That had to affect something.

Looks like I get to join in!

Lets see..

Goal - 1200 calories daily
Breakfast
---------
Slimfast - 180

So far so good, but I feel hungry and it's only been 2 hours. Fighting hard to drink only water. And motivation for exercise is nill. Poop.

Hi Tabathana, have you tried the Slim Fast snack bars? They are pretty good, also the Special K bars. (inside the Slim Fast box *printed* are coupons for meal and snack bars). When I have a Slim Fast I eat a piece of fruit, cup of grapes something because I am the same way. I am hungry in two hours, but I eat every 3 hours for the most part, 7, 10, 1, 4, 7. Then I walk 2 miles or more. Hope this helps a little. :) Have a great weekend.



Writing down what I eat is really helpful because I realise I haven't eaten that many vegetables or fruit today. It's weird when I'm at home because I eat less of these here, at work I'm nibbling on apples and grapes throughout the day. I am really picky about my fruit and veg though. I will only eat broccoli, carrots, peas, sweetcorn and cauliflower, and for fruit I will only eat apples, grapes and at a push raspberries and strawberries. Ugh. Still working on this!

LOL Wysteria, I'm happy to know I'm not the only picky eater here. :D I like apples, grapes, cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon, plums (I have to peel them), peaches and pears but only in a container not fresh unless I peel it.

Veggies, cabbage, broccoli (steamed), green beans, carrots must be cooked or it takes me forever to eat it, yuk. Spinach I just started eating and it's not as bad as I thought. I've actually gotten pretty creative with what I put it in. I like potatoes and corn also but they aren't really good for you? Are they? I like most things that go in salads. My problem is I have to peel most things to eat them and most of the nutrients are in the peels. Wow now that I'm typing this I guess I have grown up more in my 40's than I thought. I love this thread, thanks Diana it is such an eye opener. :)

Hi All,

Looks like this is a great, supportive group!

Penguin, Wysteria, Love2b, Impala, Kris, BlueRidge (congrats on the NSV), Serb, Caroline (fellow Red Sox fan here), Tabatha, Courtnie, Fashin, and Munchie: Good luck with your goals!

Diana I think it has something to do with the weather. We went from 90-100 degree temps to 60-80 degree temps. It was so chilly some evenings/nights we needed a jacket. Everyone seems to be coming down with some type of cold and it's making them feel really bad. Summer colds are bad to begin with. Well hope everyone gets better soon.

Saturday is over now, let's see what I've eaten today:

Breakfast:
Gluten free Chelsea bun and a small iced tea that really wasn't very nice, followed by a walk round the village during which I found the Happiest Cat In The World. It was having a dust bath in a hole in the road, and it looked totally blissed out. Really made me smile.

Lunch:
Japanese omlette made with two eggs, soy sauce and mirin and cooked in low-fat butter. VERY light and VERY tasty.

Then I went round the supermarket with Mum, because she can't push heavy trolleys or lift heavy bags, so I've done my share of resistance for the day!

Dinner:
Baked salmon in a teriyaki marinade with steamed rice, steamed broccoli, steamed cauliflower and half a corn cob. Plus a glass of OJ and ice.

...followed by a small bowl of Haagen Daas Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream. And I mean small. Like, only three spoonfuls.

Not done too badly today! LOOK, VEGETABLES!

Why do I do it?! Why? I know that when I got to my sisters I cant resist. They keep telling me its ok to eat foods you like, its ok to cheat now and then... I broke all my goals.

I promised myself I wouldnt have soda this month. I did.I promised I'd keep my portions down.... I stuffed myself. I promised I'd stay at 1200 -1400 calories... I dont even want to think about how much I ate today.

Breakfast at home... Slim-fast. 180 cals. Took a bottle of vitamin water with me. Ended up having strawberries that have been soaking for days in sugar.. over cake.. with whipped cream... fried pork steak... augratin potatos and corn with way too much butter. And I kept nibbling on it way after I was full cause it tasted so damn good.

I feel like such a failure.

I had a old Sportline and it recenlty broke. I bought another cheap Sportline at Walmart and its inaccurate also. I'm in a Ped checkin on another forum, and they recomend the Omron 115 or similar models. They are digital, so can be worn clipped to clothing or stuck in a pocket, and run about $25 on Amazon. Hope that helps.

ETA: I had the number wrong. Here's a link http://www.amazon.com/Omron-HJ-112-Digital-Pocket-Pedometer/dp/B0000U1OCI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=hpc&qid=1278274649&sr=1-1

Total:890 calories. To make it about 1000, my goal for the day, I'm thinking I'm going to have another yoghurt around 10. Also probably lots of green tea, since I used up my calories more quickly than I would have liked. My family was all having dinner together, and I figured I ought to eat with them. Honestly, I was surprised by how many calories were in it. Ah, well. Tomorrow is another, 1200 calorie day.

Lauren Salmon Salad sounds delish! I had salmon last night and it was yummy for sure. I need to try to eat salmon more regularly. The shrimp with avacado sounds delish, too. You have a rockin' menu today! Have you been eating broccoli sprouts very long or is this a new food for you? I received an email from Eat This Not That and it mentioned broccoli sprouts. Yesterday I went to Earth Fare (one of our healthy grocery stores) and picked up a package of the broccoli sprouts. I plan on using them this week in place of lettuce on my sandwiches. I looked at the website on the package and it says that John Hopkins University has done studies on broccoli sprouts and their cancer fighting properties. It sounds like it's better for you than lettuce. If I like the way it tastes on my sandwich, I might make the switch. ;) I bought the 100% broccoli sprouts. Here's their site in case anyone has time to do extra reading :D ;) http://www.broccosprouts.com/default.asp

Have felt sick most of the day so haven't eaten much:

Breakfast:
Fat-free natural yoghurt with some strawberries and blueberries tossed in.

Lunch:
Small, and I mean small, chicken salad with no dressing. It was literally the size of a saucer, this salad.

Dinner:
Nothing. I think if I eat I'll throw up :3

I've drunk lots of water today and some tea, but otherwise I don't think I can keep much down. Urrgh, brb bed x.x

Hi Everyone!

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July (if you celebrate).
I did celebrate, and it wasn't as OP as I think it should be. Too much cider and beer >_<

But anyways, I'm back OP today, and that's all that matters now :)

This is me so far:


* Vit D & multivitamin

milk, skim, 1 cup
oatmeal, 1/2 cup
flaxseed, 1 Tbsp
1 small banana

1 grapefruit

3 cups lettuce
1.5 oz light feta cheese
4 Tbsp pinto beans
2 Tbsp homemade olive oil vinaigrette
1 ww english muffin
1 Tbsp Hummus

1 piece dark chocolate
1 c cherries

I'm off to go see "Knight and Day" with some friends, and we'll probably grab dinner afterwards. I'm thinking about steering them towards Panera (I love their black bean soup!)

Feel better, Wysteria.

So far today: 1 yoghurt. :/ I've been at the bird shelter I volunteer at all day and haven't had time to eat anything else yet (lol, though apparently I always have time to bum around on 3fc). What to eat is a little bit of a tricky issue, or rather, how much to eat is. I'm going out to dinner with my father and brother soon at a restaurant that has great nostalgic value for my family but also suuuper unhealthy food. I'm going to go for a caesar salad, but if they order something ultra tasty like potato skins as an appetizer I might not be able to hold out. Since we're about to go anyway I'm contemplating just not eating before so I can't possibly screw myself up that badly. On the other hand, it might help to go full... hmmmm :/

Also, although this is scheduled as a 1200 calorie day I think I should probably reschedule that 1200 calorie day- easier without restaurant food. We'll see, though.

Well, let's see...so the scale WAS going up. But since I decided to have a few drinks on July 3rd--of hmmm. I drank 1 whole Bud light lime. 3 shots of tequila, and something else in a cup--i have no idea what it was. Since I am not a drinker. I got alcohol poisoning and was SICK AS A DOG. From 11 pm to 11pm the next day. I threw up so much i got a good ab workout.

Hey looking on the bright side. Still very very weak....but hey i'm 5 lbs down! woohoo! jk. I think that is water losses...so I will see a little bit of a rebound.

I did so good on the 3rd--we had our big cookout on the 3rd. I only ate one hot dog and a bunch of watermelon and salad. I couldn't eat once I started drinking...and after that I couldn't keep anything down.

July 5th. Not on plan, but trying to eat.

so far 1 pc pizza
1 tsp ranch
3 chunks of watermelon
glass gatorade
water.

07-05-2010, 06:08 PM
WOW Jen, you got alcohol poisoning from that little? Are you sure you are not allergic or something? I am def. not a big drinker - 3 shots of tequila would probably make me puke once or twice, but that's it.

I got incredibly sick after drinking once, like threw up for hours - but I think it was just food poising that happened at the same time.

Hope you are feeling better soon!

Courtnie That's awful! I'm so sorry to hear this. Do you have an existing back issue or is this something new?

The pain has been fairly bad about 3 weeks now. Not like, super bad - but bad enough that I was at my wits end this morning. I think it first started about two months ago, but it wasn't bad at the beginning. Before that nothing was wrong. He was just such a jerk. It's not like a rushed myself to the ER - I tried EVERYTHING I could first and nothing works (chiropractor, massages, swimming, pain killers, muscle relaxants, stretching, hot baths). He just said my muscle is like permanently contracted and I just have to wait it out.

He gave me some sleeping pills. And told me to take ibuprofen and tylenol together.

07-05-2010, 06:35 PM
omg, courtney. I don't believe any one should tell you that! wow what a jerk. I had a bad experience at the ER too. I COULDN'T walk--i was weak...i just kept falling down. I sat in the lobby for 45 minutes retching bile...and the Triage nurse finally got to me...and said "well you only have a little bit of blood in that vomit, you are not puking bright red blood" ARE YOU MAD??? i'm vomiting so hard I'm puking blood.

She said I would probably have to wait another 2 hours. I'm in nursing school, i know the deal. All i wanted was some phenergen and some fluids! I just said 'NO! I'M GOING back home." and left the ER still couldn't walk, and retched all the way home. finally drunk some more gatorade, and puked it up, but eventually i started retaining fluids---i just had to keep drinking despite the vomiting.

then at 5pm...the pepto seemed to slow the attacks down, and i drank more...and then my lovely SO made me some ramen. which i kept down with several more rounds of pepto.

one time, i threw my back out. i think it was a contracture because I couldn't stand up straight--and God it hurt. i suffered for about a week with it. I had to squat with my legs open and back straight to pick something up.... One night after praying i felt really strongly to put a straight board under my mattress. I did it. when i did that. I woke up to NO more pain.

sotypical: Ouch, I'm sorry. I hope it clears up. :(

Food:

1 yoghurt-100 calories
1 slice deli turkey -50 calories
2 cans V8-60 calories
1 Chili's caesar salad- no idea. Let's just mark up the day as 1500 and forget about it.

Finally got my scale's battery replaced. Was delighted to see it read 168 this morning. Stepped on tonight and it said 173. WHAT. NOT OKAY. I know it's probably just water weight, but my weight usually does not fluctuate like this. It's really irritating since I haven't been a day off my 1200 calorie/day plan for a week and a half, and I've usually been under the limit. AND I've just started exercising more (no jogging till I get my ipod shuffle, because I detest jogging without music, but multi-hour walks every day). Really makes me disappointed. I wanted to finally see the 150's on my scale before I headed off to college where I would not have it, but now it's looking like that's not going to happen. Not going to binge, partially because I don't have enough energy, but I feel lousy.

Impala Only weigh yourself the same time everyday, preferably in the AM right after waking and urination. If you weigh later in the day again you will normally weigh heavier. You have everything in your body that you consumed that day, so it's not accurate.

OK... did good on the calorie counting today (not really with the actual FOOD choice though). Heading out for my run in a bit. And then later do my 20 minutes of yoga... and something else. Don't quite know what yet. I did make a whole big poster that is on my bedroom wall... and it's awesome. :D At least... I think it is. ;) just a little something extra for motivation.


So... here's my calorie count for the day (eating nothing else, will try and drive the 45 minutes to the walmart tomorrow)-

Breakfast -
1 cup cheerios - 110
1/2 cup 2% milk - 60
Total - 170

Lunch -
1 and a half Chicken Tenderloins (breaded) - 250
6 baby carrot sticks - 30
1 tbsp ranch dressing - 60
3 tbsp ketchup - 50
1 small corn on the cob - 60
Total - 450

Dinner -
Homemade Salad - 150 (don't feel like listing EVERYTHING in it)
Total - 150

Other -
Chocolate Cake - 250
Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream - 350
Total - 600

Goal for the Day: in between 1400 and 1500
Total for the Day: ~1370 (might have a fruit thing after my run)

so yeah. :)

Well today I did my weekly weigh in and I was 1 lb down, whoohoo and today is my day off from work so I had to deal with the "I have time to graze" mode unlike at work where I can't eat all day. Anyhow it was a good day, I think I went over my 1363 calorie mark maybe by 200 calories as I went to Panera and had french onion soup (did not eat croutons) and two pieces of the baguette bread. I placed it on my calorie log page the best I could but of course it's not accurate to the weight and amount. I did not eat all the soup but I did the bread. It was a good day still, no soda and no fast food (i.e McDonalds)

Courtnie - I hear ya on the back pain. I have the same problem, it comes and goes as it pleases. I have found the best thing to do is take the ibuprofen and tylenol together and then have an extremely hot bath. This usually works for me and i'll be able to sleep. I hope it helps you too.

Felt a bit better today, got into work for 7.30am for a conference call with head office (which is 2 timezones ahead, ugh), flitted around the office catching up with the stuff I had hanging over from last week when I was on leave, left work at 3.45pm, went and did the grocery shopping, filled the Wysteria-mobile up with petrol, got home about 20 minutes ago and am now chillaxing with some Criminal Minds. Shopping counts as exercise, lol.

Anyway, food:

Breakfast:
2 Oatybix biscuit thingies with a tub of natural fat free yoghurt and some maple syrup for a bit of sweetness and a cup of strong black coffee to wake me up before the meeting.

Snack:
Apple. Om nom nom. It was particularly good!

Lunch:
Brussels pate and salad with a smidgeon of dressing, small (and I mean like fun size) packet of Butterkist popcorn and a bottle of Lucozade energy drink.

Dinner:
Currently nomming on 2 gluten free crispbreads with brie. Mmmm. I might finish the tub of Ben & Jerry's later, dunno, lol. Oh, I've been bad today. But you know what, I don't really care! :)

Both of them are about 15-20 miles away. I will normally go to one of those once or twice a month. I have heard Trader Joe's is alot cheaper than Whole Foods.

I saw your other post at the daily weigh-in thread about your calories. It seems like your calories should be fine. Three days isn't long to be at one weight. Maybe give it a week and then re-evaluate. Are you getting close to TTOM? Are you eating higher sodium foods? So many things contribute to our daily fluctuations or lack of. I would really give it a week and see what happens.

Diana thank you, I hope it's ok to say I can always count on you to help me. Thank you :) ... you know it's funny last month I came on, on the 13th and only stayed on for 3 days. Sunday I started spotting and have been off and on since. Went to church came back I had cramps. Still spotting but that's it. I have always been irregular since age 11. 33 years later no difference. About the sodium I am really careful about my salt intake since reading the post on here, I'll learning quite a bit. I can tell by my wedding rings they get uncomfortably tight when I have had too much salt. I'm gonna go ahead and take your advice and give it until Saturday and see what happens. I was thinking if I increase my calories, I'll feel like I'm feeling right now, stuffed and bloated. Not a good feeling at all. However I have put a second hole in my belt so I am losing inches. I sure wish I had taken my measurements when I first started.

LoveAcat, I do weigh in every day, most of the time more than once or twice. I've gotten really good about guessing my correct when I re-weigh. I am trying to do some other things in my mind, but they aren't happening yet. I do better when I have someone to work out with and so far the only thing I have right now are walking partners.

I don't have money to get new clothes right now so thank goodness for freecycle. I'll just ask for a few items and hope that I get them. And I will definitely take my measurements in the morning.

Well thanks, talk to you all tomorrow. I know I said I'd be patient but I do hope that scale is friendly to me in the morning :) Good night

Today was pretty hectic- out and about doing various things from when I woke up.

Food:
2 cans V8-60 calories
1 bottle diet orange soda-38 calories
1 cup noodles, beef and vegetable-300 calories
Some of my friend's popcorn- no idea but for definite less than 600 calories so let's call it that.
9 pieces of pepperoni ~100 calories
1 yoghurt - 100 calories

Total: 1198ish calories. So hard coming home though. Opened the refrigerator to get my yoghurt and first thing that hits me is chocolate cake. Barely even bothered me, since I've so firmly written it out of the possibility for today But THEN, ah, THEN my eyes lighted upon a tupperware container of caesar salad, which may be my very favorite food ever. It was really hard to wrench myself away, but I reminded myself that I could have it tomorrow.

Another super-busy day at work, rocked some overtime until 6.30pm and I am really tired x.x

Jen, that burger had to be the nastiest burger I have ever had. Don't know if it was taste buds or not but whew I won't try it again at least not that kind. I have wanted a hot dog but don't have any turkey franks in the house, only beef so don't want to do the extra fat. Maybe I should have one just to get rid of the want, but not today since I'm not going walking this evening, maybe tomorrow for lunch. :D

Wow, today was tough. I think I might be being too restrictive. It's a decision I struggle with. It's easier to lose weight at home where I have more control over what I eat than on a college dining plan, but on the other hand I wonder what havoc I'm wreaking with my metabolism and today I found myself nearly hungry enough to go off-plan. Near miss (thanks in part to you guys, thanks! <3). Right now my plan is to go 1000, 1200, 1500, repeat. Often, though, I overestimate calories to be sure, and I think it's likely that a 1200 and a 1500 calorie day this week were both actually 800-1000 calorie days. :/

Anyway, food!

4 slices turkey - 200 calories
20ish (I'll admit I lost count a little) pieces pepperoni- 200 calories tops.
5 pickles - 50 calories
String cheese - 50 calories
Chips (indulged a little) - 450 calories
I'm thinking more string cheese to make up the additional 50?

Total: 1000. 1500 tomorrow! Woooo!

Hi All! :wave:

jendiet - I hope you are feeling better. I find it tough to drink a lot of water when I am sick , good job!

fashin - Yay, it's Friday! I hope you have a good weekend :)

meggoat - Welcome back, you'll lose those 20lbs in no time!

Diana - You wishing for fall already?!? I'm hoping the heat sticks around for some time! Loving it :) But you are right, sometimes it can be a little hard to sleep.

Love - I agree with jen, you plan looks pretty good. I wouldn't say you were off plan because you made the best choices you could and stayed within a healthy calorie range. Well done :)

Penguin - Hi :wave: Your day looks good :)

Impala - Have a lovely vacation!

Soooo glad the week is almost over! Bring on the weekend!

Here is my plan for the day 7/9/2010

B - 1 whole wheat WW bagel w/ 2 light laughing cow cheeses and tomato + 1 peach + 1 yoghurt

L - Chicken Salad on multi-grain with a side salad

S - 1 Apple

D - Sushi! Probably have a small seaweed salad, spicy miso soup, some edamame, 3 pieces Spicy Salmon Maki roll, 3 pieces Salmon and Avocado Maki roll and maybe 3 peices Salmon Sushi

Drinking: 1 morning cofee + 2L water throughout the day + 1 diet pepsi

Exercise: It's supposed to be raining all day so probably 30 - 60mins of Wii

Have a happy, healthy and OP day and weekend :wave:

Derp, forgot to post yesterday.

But I had a really good reason.

I got a promotion at work yesterday and went out to celebrate with my friends ^^

So two day's worth of food starts... NOW:

Thursday.

Breakfast: Fat free natural yoghurt with a dash of maple syrup.
Lunch: Mozzarella salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Dinner: Three sausages, a PROPER bread roll (oh boy my stomach didn't like that but I needed something to soak up the red wine), salad, coleslaw and a bowl of strawberries. Plus the better part of a bottle of red wine. Ooops.

FRIDAY:

Breakfast: ...nothing. I know, I'm bad. I forgot. Oh wait, I had a glass of orange juice.

Snack: Apple, eaten on the run. They don't taste as good when you have to nom them quickly.

Lunch: Gluten free chicken salad sandwich. Mmm. Not. The bread was horrible.

Snack: Packet of Frazzles (bacon flavoured corn snacks) and a can of Lilt, which remarkably only has 65 calories, I did not know that.

Dinner: Dunno, will probably throw some pasta and tomates at the cooker and see what happens xD

It is honestly too hot to move today. I've drunk shedloads of water x.x I think I'm going to emigrate to Alaska.

Wysteria, congrats again on that promotion. That really makes you feel good!
Diana, i hope you have a nice splurge tomorrow. You did so good today!

well, i ended up eating 5 chicken wings. I picked everything off but the regular meat. And I ate 1 1/2 slices of that pizza with no crust. Omg, spinach Alfredo pizza from PAPA JOHNS is so delicious! i love the tomatoes covered in cheese!

fashin, yeah. it's not so bad. the 12" is actually 210 calories per slice. we ordered the x-large so i am pretty sure it had 290 cs per slice. The calories in a breadstick-120 cs. so if you cut the crust off, it saves about 100cs. Which i would definitely recommend because the pizza is thick crust.

I had the thin crust too--which i prefer, and they are 230 cs/slice.

but there is chicken, roma tomatoes, and yummy spinach on it too!

Hi everyone!

So I realized I don't make it to the boards every day... well, I'll try my best!

This is me today:


Breakfast: Vit D & multivitamin, 1 c skim milk, 1/2 c oatmeal, 1 Tbsp flaxseed, 1 grapefruit
Snack: 1 apple
Lunch: 2 cups lentil soup, 12 almonds
Snack: 1 banana
Dinner: 1 package instant oatmeal, 3 cups strawberries -- VVVVVV
Snack: 1 kashi chewy protein bar, oatmeal raisin (280 cals, 5g fat, 6g fiber, 13g protein)

I didn't really get a nice dinner, because I was at work, and left straight from there to go see an outdoor movie (wizard of oz!) with friends... good times :)

I hope everyone's Friday went well!

Thanks for the congrats guys, you have no idea how wondeful it made me feel!

Anyway, food for today:

Breakfast: We went out to our favourite coffee shop so I had a wild berry smoothie. And that was it, there's nothing I can eat that they serve there, it's all full of wheat.

Lunch: Oh my, I was naughty because I was still out in town: Medium portion of fries from KFC. BUT on the plus side, I didn't salt them and didn't have them with any sauce.

Dinner: will be poached salmon with boiled potatoes, green beans, sweetcorn and broccoli. Yummeh!

No snacks today, there's no vending machine to tempt me and I've run out of apples. It's also fearfully hot even though my neighbour insists it isn't so lots of water again.

I'm new to this site, but this looks like a good thread to help me stay accountable.

I'm just jumping back into the whole getting heathy thing. My goals for the remainder of this month are:
~to complete 12 workouts
~to eat breakfast EVERY DAY
~to drink water before I grab anything else (i am addicted to dr pepper and kool-aid and rarely drink water...)
~to journal food for the remainder of the month and see where I need to improve my diet

I'm using FitDay to help with the food logging. The dr told me to aim for about 1600 calories a day. Its been a while since I paid any attention to calories. And I'm using the blog option with this site to journal everything else. I'm an emotional eater, so I am hoping to learn all my triggers and correct them. I'm a little overwhelmed with all this at the moment, but I know I'll fall back into the groove where it becomes second nature in no time.


7/10/10:
Breakfast: Coffee with cream & sugar, malt-o-meal with brown sugar (330)
Lunch: (busy with the horses and missed it)
Supper: Sloppy Joe Sandwich, couple bites of macaroni & cheese, ice cream (1076 ... dang ice cream ...)

Water Intake: 50oz and counting! :) Huge improvement for me

Jen We are hot, as usual. ;) We had some rain the night before last, could use some more, though. Is it cooler or warmer there? I am hearing alot of talk that we have more tourists at the beaches than normal because of the Gulf oil situation. I am hoping to go to Whole Foods or Earth Fare today to pick up some more Broccoli Sprouts. I had them on my sandwiches this past week. They are pretty tasty.

we have had no rain, i bet the tourists are doing just that! i don't know why but walking around a boulevard visiting different shops sounds so fun to me right now.

i guess I miss the tons of window shopping you could do in New York. mm, i like broccoli sprouts on sandwhiches with slices of avocado. have you ever tried that?

thankfully, are grocery stores have a bit of organic and healthy produce you don't usually find.

I took some time off late last year to read through Judith Beck's Beck Diet Solution. Beck is a psychologist, the book is not about what we eat but what causes us to eat. I read the pink book http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&q=beck+diet+solution&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=16193614580512634824&ei=BuI4TN3YDcKB8gbpyfWnBg&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CCgQ8wIwAg#which has 40 chapters {read one a day} and Beck helps us recognize why we eat, and gives us steps, tools, hints, and exercises to help us fight the urge to eat when we aren't hungry. I read about half the book then went back and re-read the last week to make sure I had gotten everything. Her book really helped me stop and think before I ate.

If you haven't tried it I bet your library might have a copy.

Hello all -

I have been AWOL for a while - while I am in Boston it's more like a weekly check in than a daily one. But good news to report - scale said 199.5 today. So I maintaining my weigh loss while I am here in spite of a crazy hectic of schedule of hours of class, trying to work remotely and keep up some kind of a social life, too.

It's been really hot here in New England, so I haven't been out running a week, but have moved my workouts indoors. There is a great yoga studio in Cambridge where I get a discount with my student ID so I've taken some classes there, and have joined a contact improvisation dance group on Tuesday evenings. And, of course, since I left my car back home...lots and lots of walking just to get around to class, grocery store, etc.

Have gotten into a pretty good groove of eating two or three meals a day in my room instead of out. My roommate brought a blender so I've been making smoothies for breakfast which are filling and high protein (almonds, ff milk, ff yogurt, some combo of banana, berries, cherries). Lunch has been beans, tortilla, cheese and some veggie, or a can of soup. I've also got whole wheat bread to make sandwiches. The times that I have eaten out I've made good choices both diet-wise and budget-wise: pizza by the slice with lots of veggies, or a crepe with lots of veggies.

One more week to go - I fly home a week from today. Crossing my fingers that I might get to 198 this week, but that would be a bonus since I'm really just trying to maintain and not to lose while I am here.

Sorry to not reply to everybody else's posts - will be able to be more regular when I am back home the week after next. Happy weekend! Enjoy the world cup final game everybody!

Hi, ladies! I've had a really rough week. I found out my dad has lung cancer, and I'm really upset. I've been stress eating, too.

Since last weekend, I've pretty much stayed on plan calorie-wise, but I've been eating my calories in junk. I haven't been on the scale. Anyway, I'm starting back up again and hoping for the best.

1700-calorie day

omg, Paradise. I am so sorry. I would be beside myself--i lost my dad to a h/a. so I couldn't imagine anything like that. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Just remember one of my FAVORITE sayings.

"The only problem food solves is hunger". I think a good kickboxing routine is what you need. No stress food.

fashin, thank you! i'm having a pretty good weekend so far. I love being on plan, makes me feel more sprite.

Well, after realizing i am NOT winning against 3'oclock fatigue, and I'm pretty sure it's my overworked adrenals, I went ahead and bought me some Ashwagandha from Puritan.com. They had a special buy 1 get 2 free. I also went ahead and bought a really good liquid multivamin called Alive. The children's flintstones just don't do it for me.

ok, about today:

GOAL: 6 mi/me, 5S, 5Fr, 2V, 2Fa, free foods <20 cs.
FOOD: 1/4 BREAKFAST SHAKE: 1/4 MI.

slice pizza w/out crust- 1 mi, 1S

lunch:
2 eggs-hard boiled-1 Me
cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions- FREE + 1V
lentils--*check that out lovecat*, 1S

coffe drink- 1 tbsp mocha mix-60, 2 tsp break fast shake=15 cs(1/3 cup + 1 tbsp= 130, 1/2 cup milk-75.-[150 cs --i forget who asked me this! sorry.], ice=

1/2 MI, 1fa, 1S

bite of son's oatmeal cookie- free. (not >20 cs)

lentil salad, w/ 1 tsp ranch- 1S, 1fa,1V, free foods

3 chicken wings-1.5 me
lentils=1 S

cinnamon disk-free

(I don't really consider lentils a starch-I consider them a meat, but if i used up the Me/mi category with the lentils--i will starve. So i stuck them in the Starch--which i really didn't feel like having today.

exercise: 20 min legs, 2 min session of 20 lunges.

1 egg- .5 Me
1/2 breakfast shake-1/2 mi, 1 S

Friends of mine wanted to go whale watching today. I have seen the whales before and didn't feel like going out on a boat again (I feel really queasy when I have to get on these whale watching boats...) but I tagged along anyways, and had plans to explore the city of Gloucester, MA, with one other friend, while everyone else was chasing whales :)

Those plans fell through when the heavens opened and it started pouring! Good thing we found this coffee shop! (that's where the hot chocolate in my food journal came from :P). We hung out and chatted, and had a good time :)

Spring, There is also a Beck forum here at Chicks, which will give you an idea of what the program is about. http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/beck-diet-solution-234/ Judith has a website. http://www.beckdietsolution.com One of her exercises is to each day give yourself credit by focuing on the things you did right that day. Like I exercises 1 credit. I didn't go over my cals 1 credit. After making a list of what I did RIGHT that day, its almost impossible to berate myself for doing 1 thing wrong. I just realized I miss the credit lists. I may take that up again.

@Diana: What do you use Holy Basil and Ashwagandha for?

Well, it's a little bit of a story, so here goes. My Dad passed away and I was having difficulties with it and some other family stuff. I was trying to find something natural to take to help me with the stress and depression. I started off taking Ignatia Amara. Ignatia Amara made it where I could face the day. It got me through the day. I don't know where I would have been without it. I was getting better, but I really had issues when I was around a particular family member. My stomach would churn at the thought of being around them and I was exhausted. I am still exhaused but it's different than it was. If you take Ignatia Amara at night, it can cause insomnia. I was looking for something to help with sleep and help me relax at night. I started taking Holy Basil when I would have to be around this particular family member. I also took it at night to help me relax and sleep. It really helped me. I was still taking the Ignatia Amara. I eventually got off the Ignatia Amara and started taking just the Holy Basil, one AM and one PM. Then I added Ashwagandha, one AM and one PM. I credit these 3 things (Ignatia Amara, Holy basil, and Ashwagandha) (plus my Loving Husband and the Lord above) to getting me though the loss of my Dad.

Paradise sorry to hear about your Dad. My Dad had throat cancer. You are definitely in my prayers.

I went bed last night with upper shoulder to elbow pain. It's been happening for awhile now but not as bad as last night. I can't remember when it started. I remember my shoulders/back hurting after getting off a couple of rides at Kings Dominion, but passed it off as just being tense (I don't like rides but the kids wanted to ride and I couldn't have one sit alone). Then there was the Zumba class (where I couldn't keep up) felt a little bad two days later. Then I tried doing crunches. No pain after doing them but then that ache was noticeable again. This morning it hurt so bad I wanted to cry.
Still waiting on insurance cards to come from my DH's job. If he turned the forms in. Thanks for listening to me whin and complain. Happy Sunday to Everyone ... praying for brighter days ahead.

Breakfast: Um... nothing... >.> whoopsie. This could probably be why I nearly passed out in the bath, that or the heat.

Snack: Greek yoghurt with honey. Yay sugar rush.

Lunch: Roast lamb, boiled potatoes, peas, onions and mushrooms.

Snack: Some brie that my friend brought back from France for me to try. Delicious!

Dinner: Was at my friend's house and had a weird sort of sauasge and bean chilli concoction with rice.

Drinks today have been many cups of tea and lots of water.

Not too shabby. Tomorrow should be back to slightly more normal eats, my eats on weekends are always a little weird.

LOL, I love the icing on birthday cakes. And I need to be prepared when the birthdays start here ... 2 in Oct, skip Nov, then there is one each month from Dec to April. But I hope to be at goal weight or close to it by April since that's my birthday month. Then I can enjoy a slice of my 45th birthday cake :D

I have a question for anyone/all of you, yes another question. :) I drank two of the cappuccino flavored Slim Fast yesterday, first time I got them and only bought them because my friend said they gave her a slight boost and she really liked them. Well since last night/early this morning I have noticed that my urine smells like that cappuccino, is that weird? Has that happened to any of you? The next time I see her I will sure give the remaining four to her because I can't stand that smell. It's making me nauseous.

Phew. I went to a Chinese Dim Sum Place today with friends. Needless to say I ate more than I would on a regular day...

I did make sure my breakfast and dinner were rather small and vegetable-oriented, to make up for the large lunch.

I'll count today as my *cheat* day...

Stats for today:

Vit D & multivitamin
1 grapefruit

Dim Sum lunch and 1/2 slice Chinese cake

2 c sugar snap peas
2 c sliced cucumbers low-fat yogurt dressing

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Hi Everyone! Tomorrow is back to the grind! I hope this week will be easier on me than last week! :dizzy:

DH was suppose to be back from the farm early. We were suppose to go eat 5-6 PM. I ate breakfast around Noon, so I figured I would eat a larger meal and all would be fine. He had some problems with a piece of equipment and didn't get home until almost 9 PM. I thought I was going to die around 7 PM while I was trying to workout. I had a higher calorie day yesterday, so I guess everything is fine. It's too late to eat any more tonight.

I haven't tried asparagus yet. The first time I had hummus was today and I liked that. I'm gradually adding things but only if someone has it for me to try. I tried avocado at my friends, it taste like pistachio to me. Gotta look up the benefits of these new things and see if I want to buy them. :) When I was younger I'd try anything now I'm a big kid when comes to trying new things, go figure.

And I've never had stinky pee after eating it, I think you have to eat ALOT to get that effect, or maybe I eat it often enough that my body is used to it? Lol

LOL Fashin, Maybe I'll buy a little and steam it or roast it with the McCormick no salt garlic and herb seasoning my cousin had me buy. I put that stuff in some canned chicken breast with light mayonnaise it definitely has a kick to it. I used it in my zucchini, spinach and artichoke lasagna also. I think it's my new friend :) The hummus that I had today came from the Commissary so I'm gonna have to talk to a few friends about getting it. I'm weird with brands also. I guess I am just uncovering a bunch of food hang ups that are starting to show up with my new way of eating :D

Back from vacation!! 10 days of fantastic family time... priceless!! =)

I only gained one pound in those ten days (TOM?). That is a GREAT accomplishment for me. (I usually gain 5-10 on vacations!) I tried to stay focused & watched what I ate (some treats) & got up and ran most mornings! Discovered treadmills aren't fun for me anymore... I need to be outside. I missed my regular routine & bike bath runs. And I was eating some things off-plan and so my face broke out with 4 zits on my face... that's what I get, right?? LOL, it was a great way to stay mindful every time I looked in the mirror! We had a great time. I can't stop smiling!!

I'll jump in here (3FC) when I can... I might not food journal for awhile... test my wings of independence... (fingers crossed & prayers said!!) Love to you ALL!!!

Back! What can I say about the vacation... I ate badly. I found I actually COULDN'T overeat very much without feeling sick, but I still ate a little more than I should have and a lot more than I have been eating, partially due to snacking. Now I'm up to 167.2 and I have that "oh god I ate too much yesterday" feeling in my stomach. Hopefully it's mostly some form of temporary weight. Being on plan today should reduce the "oh god what did I eat" feeling for tomorrow, too. Having friends over today, and we're having pizza- my plan is to have a yoghurt for lunch and then at dinner time with them I can have up to 3 pieces of pizza if that tickles my fancy.

Derp, been running entirely on sugar today. Twas not a good food day.

At various times of the day, I consumed:

Fat-free yoghurt with maple syrup.
Pate. Just pate, no salad/bread or anything.
A Mars Bar.
Packet of cheese and onion crisps.
Can of full fat coke.
Some weird drink called Neuro Sonic. I think I'm still running off it, I'm buzzing.
A small, nondescript sausage.

Yeah. And now I feel sick and won't be having any dinner. Eheh.

7/12 Check-In

A friend of mine recommended a program called DietPower that my husband and I decided to go ahead and buy it over the weekend, so I've been playing around with that. I like it better than FitDay, personal preference I guess. I think I am going to keep track of the calories from DietPower here, instead of FitDay.

DietPower Budgeted Calories: 1632
calories earnied in exercise: 158

Breakfast: My usual coffee (336) I'm working on ways to get this to be a much lower calorie choice.
Dinner: Turbo Sandwich ~6 in. hoagie, ham, pepperoni, mozzarella, lettuce, tomato~ (453) side salad w/ cheese already mixed in (80) 3 cheese sticks (290):o
Drink while shopping with mom: super size Hi-C Orange (460):eek: I HAD NO IDEA OR I WOULD HAVE NEVER DRANK IT!!!
Supper: going to be a medium salad with tomato & mushrooms + a couple sprays of italian dressing

DietPower Calories Eaten: 1839 before supper

2 of 12 workouts completed ~ 1.25 walk/slow jog combo - 24 minutes + 10 minutes of stretching

I'm not going to get upset about the calories. Live and learn, right? I will focus more on food next month. This month I just wanted to get moving and start burning calories and I think I'm doing good with that so far.

fashinjunkie09
07-12-2010, 07:30 PM
love, mmm that seasoning sounds yummy I'll have to try that! And the brand of hummus I buy is called Sabra I get it at Super Target and I think it's delicious! They have regular kind or roasted garlic, roasted red pepper, pesto, and chipotle (my fave!) that I know of. If you like spicy food you should try it!

veil, great job not gaining on vacation- I'm with you being a 5-10 lb gainer usually. I hope to be able to go on vacation and only gain if it's normal (like TOM or something) and not because I ate everything in site! :)

Impala, I hate that feeling and I'm sure it'll be gone tomorrow and the little bit you put on is probably water weight and will be gone in no time!!

spring, don't worry days like that happen to us all but you have a great attitude about it!

Well I am very excited because the scale said 156.6 this morning which is my highschool weight and a new low! Be back to post my food in a little bit, I hope you ladies are having a good Monday! :)

LOL Diana, we got out there and before we could get a mile in the clouds opened up. I don't know why I always find it hilarious when we get caught in the rain, but I do. :D We do a mile in a little less than 20 minutes so I was bummed that we didn't get to finish at least one mile since we surely weren't gonna get to our 3. I sure wish we had a treadmill on the hot and rainy days.

My husband says he doesn't want to waste money on a treadmill until it gets too cold to walk. I think I'll be able to do the cold walks easier than the extremely hot. I did last winter until I lost my partner, she said it was too cold for her ... as long as I'm moving I'm fine :D

I took some time off late last year to read through Judith Beck's Beck Diet Solution. Beck is a psychologist, the book is not about what we eat but what causes us to eat. I read the pink book, has 40 chapters {read one a day} and Beck helps us recognize why we eat, and gives us steps, tools, hints, and exercises to help us fight the urge to eat when we aren't hungry. I read about half the book then went back and re-read the last week to make sure I had gotten everything. Her book really helped me stop and think before I ate.

If you haven't tried it I bet your library might have a copy.

Thanks again for recommending this book penguin! Unfortunately, my small town library did not have it andit wasn't available with the traveling library. I went ahead and ordered a copy though, I'm sure its well worth the price paid. :)

Hi Girls :wave:

fashin!!!! Good job getting back down to your high school weight and new low! You're awesome! :cp:

Impala - those days happen. Keep your head up, move on and get back OP. At least you stayed in a healthy cal. range right?!? You have to look at the positives! :)

My start to the week was a little rough, not feeling 100% yesterday so did not eat well at all. Soup, bread and ginger ale pretty much all day. My back has also been playing up, didn't get much sleep over the weekend so that's probably the reason I felt ill yesterday. Luckily my Chrio could fit me in yesterday, so I had my back adjusted and a short massage and my back felt much better afterwards. Got a good sleep last night so I am feeling much better. Back to it today.

Here is the plan for the day 7/13/2010

B - 3/4 cup bran flakes w/ flax and 1/2 cup skim milk + 1 banana

L - small can tuna mixed with 1/2 the fat mayp and chopped pickles on 2 light rye Ryvita + salad of lettuce, baby spinach, tomato, light chedder cheese and cal.wise balsamic dressing

S - 1 Apple

D - Shrimp with broccoli sprouts, avocado and old school marie sauce

Drinking: 1 morning coffee + 2L water throughout the day + 1 diet pepsi

Exercise: Wii Fit Plus

Have a happy, healthy and OP day :wave:

Today I am really trying to get back on track. I am going to an english pub for dinner - plus side of this pub - no deep fryer. And they make the most delicious crab cakes and pan fried oysters. Probably going to get crab cakes. Anyway, I did enter in today's calories until lunch and I am doing okay. Not sure what dinner calories will be, but hopefully this is the start of getting back on track.

Today 7/13

This sounds like the sort of thing that might be useful for me, so hope nobody minds me joining in :)

Breakfast- didn't get up for
Lunch - Sausage on a roll - not happy with, I need to plan ahead for my lunches again, particularly as I've been trying to avoid carbs lately
Mid-afternoon - One square of posh 70% chocolate. Surprised that it was quite low cal and dealt with
Dinner - Burgers made from lean mince and loads of vegetables, served with slimming world oven chips (a definite success) and homemade onion relish. Very filling!

Feeling quite motivated on the exercise front, but my knee is bothering me and figuring out something to do that won't hurt it is proving difficult.
Been drinking plenty water, and hoping for a good weigh in tomorrow.

Breakfast:
2 Oatybix with fat free yoghurt and maple syrup.

Snack:
Erm... a donut >.> I KNOW I KNOW. IT'S WHEAT! But it was my colleague's birthday and it would have been rude not to eat one, lol.

Lunch:
Beef and bean chilli with rice from the cafe across the road. Epic massive portion but it was really tasty.

Then I didn't have my afternoon apple due to a meeting which made me forget to eat it.

Then I went to the gym for an hour of abuse by my personal trainer.

Dinner:
Small slice of pate and two fried eggs.

And now I've got a cup of tea, am very tired and sore but really quite contented.

HI zing!
Wysteria, one donut isn't the end of the world! i hope it doesn't mess with you too bad.
fashin, thanks...i know it's not real! i mean it's not diet related because I have been for the most part on plan. But it is really disheartening to get an all new low for this time-and then bounce right back up!

ok here is my food and activity from yesterday:

31, 345 steps on my pedometer. Yes, that is right. I cleaned everything i could. I scrubbed, vacuumed, washed, and did laundry even went shopping all of that over 8 hrs. That is 8 hrs of housework--which is about 1900 cs burned. I will be conservative and say 1600.

I also did a full arm routine for 20 min with my tubing and 2 sets of pushups and tricep dips.

Lauren, those are exchanges. It is the exchange system--tweaked to my own use.

an exchange of milk - is 8 oz milk(whole) or the equivalent-about 150 cs high fat milk
an exchange of meat- is equivalent to 1 chicken leg about 150 cs--high fat meat
an exchange of fruit- simply is 60 cs
an exchange of starch- 80 cs
an exchange of fat is 45 cs
an exchange of vegetables is 25 cs

free foods are <20 cs (mostly veggies)

its like calorie counting but not exact. i also combine my milk and meat groups together. some days I want 4 milk/2 meats. 3 milks/ 3 meats, or 5 milk, 1 meat.

love, LOL I think you've made the right choice! ;) And I'm the same way, I can handle the cold as long as I'm moving but this heat makes me want to lay on the couch and never move!

Me too I could stay in the a/c forever! :D Luckily it's been raining so by the time we go it's not so bad, but you don't know when the next storm is coming ... bummer

Welcome Zing, niafabo, and want2bfit4me :)

Wysteria I am with you all the way on this Note to self: PLAN YOUR DARN MEALS! I use to do it and it worked out so well, but since the kids have been home I have slacked off ... not sure why since I definitely have the time

Today started out planned then I switched up on lunch and oh well
... also supposed to be a high calorie day and I went over

7/13/10

Big Breakfast (697)
2 eggs w/ a slice of 2% cheese, 3 strips microwave bacon, 2 slices of whole wheat toast w/ reg margarine and apple jelly, skim milk and 1/2 grapefruit

Snack (100)
Rice cake and low sodium V8

Lunch (434)
2oz chicken breast canned, diet cranberry juice, 1/2 grapefruit, Fit & Active shrimp pasta and vegetable meal, broccoli

Snack (330)
Hummus (bought Chipotle, dried tomato and garlic flavors) I think I'm addicted, tried them all, cinnamon snack pack (like mini rice cakes), wheat crackers

Dinner (335)
whole grain wrap, 2oz shred teriyaki chicken, shredded taco blend cheese, lettuce, salsa, sour cream

total calories 1896 over by 100 calories and we only walked a mile and a quarter due to the rain. Today's calorie intake was supposed to be 1796. I am truly afraid of what the scale will say in the morning. And I was just applauding myself for staying on track. I need one of those whooshes you all have :)

love, if the almighty scale is saying +3 it is lying--or at least 'HALF-TRUTHING'.

100 cs does not even hit a fraction of the calories needed to be eaten to gain a lb.

ImpalaHoarder

Better than yesterday! I'm really trying to be more vigilant about spreading my calories over the day.

yoghurt- 100 calories
grapes- 200 calories
ramen-400 calories
chicken caesar salad, no dressing, light on croutons and chicken- Tried to take an amount that would be about 300 calories, but who knows.
a teaspoon of chocolate ice cream- beats me?

Goal: 1000 Total:1000ish + tsp ice cream? Good enough for me to count it as my 1000 calorie day. I'm HUNGRY. Tomorrow- more food!

Also, spent about an hour digging a grave for a bird at the bird shelter I volunteer at. I certainly got exhausted, so maybe it's kind of exercise-like.

The thing is I usually don't come close to that many calories, but I am so trying to break this plateau, so I wanted to try this calorie cycling thing, so it's more like 300-400 more calories than I had been doing. I know I need to just breathe and wait it out. :)

Welcome nia and want2!! :wave:

Jen, I know exactly what you mean! I just saw an all time low and I'm afraid that for my official WI tomorrow (even though I've been OP) I'm going to be right back up to where I was. Ugh.

love2b, I know what you mean the weather here has been crazy with huge storms every other day... I'm glad you like the hummus how is the dried tomato kind I've never tried it? And it might be scary if you see a gain at first, but you really will just need to wait it out! I've heard great things about zig zagging (or cycling) calories and if you're needing to bust through a plateu I bet it will do the trick! Good luck! :)

love2b150
07-14-2010, 12:57 AM
Thanks Fashin :) The Sun Dried Tomato is a little bland so I figure I'll mix it with the Chitpotle or the Garlic flavors when I eat them. I am really surprised that I have never tried hummus before.

jendiet
07-14-2010, 01:06 AM
fashin, i hope the weigh in is lower than your new all time low. That would me a nice motivation. But if it isn't or it is up--remember that is just one picture of a moment in time. You are STILL on a downward trend.

Good job.

Love and fashin, i like hummus. Too expensive in store. So i buy a can of chickpeas, chop them up in food processor, add seasonings and a little olive oil--the sky is the limit to what you like in it. Chickpeas are really agreeable with almost everything. They have high protein too.

Alright, i am to bed.

Hi Everyone :)

jendiet - interesting, thanks for sharing :)

Welcome to the thread neofabo and want2bfit4me :wave:

loveAcat - well done on saying no to that ice cream! :cp:

love2b150 - I have never tried canned chicken, what is it like?? I'm kinda weirded out by it because I don't know anyone who has even tried it. But it would definitely be an easy protein to keep in the pantry along with canned tuna.

Impala - awww poor birdie :( Digging counts as exercise :)

So last night my back was playing up again - one day after my Chiro appointment! I was so upset, I was in sooo much pain I was crying and considering going to Emergency to see if there was something really really wrong (and perhaps prescribe me some really strong pain killers). But I didn't I took some muscles relaxants and Tylenol (a lot of Tylenol!) and then took a hot bath and then after the bath sat with a heat pad for about 30mins and my back felt a little better so I could finally get to bed. It still feels kinda sore this morning but not terrible. Going to make an appointment with my RMT ASAP I really just want to find something that will giev me some relief for a few days!

Anyway - here is my plan for the day 7/14/2010

B - 1/4 cup oatmeal w/ natural peanut butter and honey + 1 cup watermelon + 1 light Babybel cheese

S - 1 Yoghurt

L - 1/3 cup whole wheat pasta w/ 1 small can tomato and onion flavoured tuna mixed in + 1 cup green beans sprinkled with a little salt

S - 1 Banana

D - What I was supposed to have last night

Drinking: Skipped my morning coffee this morning and opted for a cup of green tea + 2L water throughout the day + 1 diet pepsi

Exercise: If it's raining, Wii Fit Plus - If no rain, 30min brisk walk with the dog

Have a happy, healthy and OP day :wave:

:bday2: 28 today...funny how time flies...

I'm wondering if I am eating enough. I eat when I am hungry, not on a schedule. I also eat when things are emotional, which thankfully hasn't been a problem lately. Yesterday, for example, I ate dinner and supper. That was it. I think I was in the 1300 calorie range. My total calories were in the 1600 range + I had extra calories (according to dietpower) for the calories burned in exercise. I'm confused about it all. Isn't the idea to burn calories to lose weight? Why is this program telling me I can eat more to make up for the calories I just burned off? :?:

Budgeted Calories: 1637

Breakfast: coffee (308 :o) The cream is gone and I am NOT buying more!
Snack: none
Dinner: 1c spinach, 1c romaine, 1/4c tomatoes, 2T ranch, 1/4c shredded cheddar, 1c baked sweet potato fries, 32oz crystal light (406)
Snack: 2T peanut butter, 4 multi-grain club crackers (253)
Supper: 2 chicken fajitas (559)
Boredom: no-bake cheesecake, 1 can dr. pepper (391)

Water: 82oz
Total Calories: 2144

Thank you to everyone for the welcomes! :D

Brunch - Scrambled egg on toast, without buttering the toast
Still having tiger bread though, need to use pester power to switch the family to wholemeal, but we've just been buying what's on offer. Maybe if I get the chance I could bake some this week :)

Dinner - Was planning a chicken and orange cous cous salad, but the weather is so rotten mum has requested something warm and comforting.
Having some mini meat loaf from the freezer with slimming world oven chips and houmous instead. I'm a houmous lover too! :D

Drinking:
Nothing but water as usual :)

Exercise:
Did my mind programming CD last night (I'm doing Paul Mckenna's system) - chose the exercise one and I'm shocked by how up for exercise I've been today. During ad breaks on tv, I worked with soupcan dumbbells, did press ups, sit ups and some of Jane Fonda's leg and arm exercises. May go on the bike later if my knees are feeling up to it.

Planning to look into some soups for the rest of the week's lunches since the horrible weather seems set to continue.

Went for my weigh in this morning and the scales are playing up again - tried 6 times and they varied from 18 stone to 15 stone 13! (should be somewhere in the middle). I was looking at new sets the other day - I think I'll see if Tesco have any going cheap because these ones are really close to giving up the ghost and eat batteries like I like to eat kettle chips! I think I've lost a bit this week and TOM means I've probably lost some water weight since last week. :)

Hello Everyone ... hope everyone has a totally OP day :carrot:

Jen it's my new love :) We have a store here called Aldi, we actually just got it about 3 months ago. They have there own brand of items at wonderful prices and it taste pretty good. I got the hummus for $1.69 per 8oz container. I don't know if that's good or bad since I have never purchased it before. But I have heard people say that it is quite expensive. They also have a line of low calorie foods called Fit & Active which are really good also. I have learned on here from you all to watch the sodium :) so everything that says low fat isn't exactly not good for us. I want a food processor but I think my husband thinks I'll have him eating something mushy so he doesn't want to buy it :laughing:.

Lauren, it is exactly like tuna. It's in chunks. My son was the one that said let's try it, so we did. One of the good things they ask for :) Swanson is a good brand, I have also purchased the Walmart brand. It's nothing like chicken nuggets or patties. Lauren I feel for you on the back ache. My mid back to shoulder/shoulder to elbow have been really bothering me, not sure why and it's off and on ... had me up a 4ish this morning, couldn't sleep. Hope we get some relief soon. :hug:

LaurenA - I feel you on pack pain. I must be going on more then a month now of mine hurting. I have been to the chrio a few times and the RMT a few times. Finally I was so mad and in so many pain I did go to emergency and they basically treated me an idiot. They gave me sleeping pills and told me to get out. That was last Monday. Last Thursday I went to my family doctor and he put some freezing shots in my back - they have worn off since, so back hurts again but not like it was. He also gave me some crazy pain killer cream/nerve that I put on 4-6 times a day and it seems to be helping... more then most other things anyway. I am going to the spa on Saturday and seeing a RMT there and going to sit in there hot tub... I hope it goes away soon. The pain actually started like 2 months ago, but wasn't bad for the first few weeks. My grandma gave me a chair thing this weekend that heats and massages, using it now... hope it helps. Anyway, just wanted to say you are not alone!

love2b - I totally love food processors! I'm back living with parents at the moment, and getting to use mum's makes me wonder how I ever did without them. I find they're really handy for sneaking vegetables into things (I'm a complete veg hater) and definitely don't make everything mushy. Would love to make hummus in it as well, getting tahini is putting me off a bit as it's a new ingredient for me.

sotypical
07-14-2010, 01:33 PM
Zing - I never put tahini in my hummus. I have it, but I don't really like it. And I love my food processor too - I use it to sneak in veggies as well. Sometimes I use a hand blender for hummus, gives it a bit of a chunkier texture - kinda nice. I love hot sauce in hummus, yum yum. I think I am going to make hummus and falafel's tonight - must get chickpeas!

That's cool, what do you put in yours then? Just chick peas, garlic, lemon and olive oil?
I found some sweet chilli hummus in the reduced cabinet of the supermarket last week - so nice! I used to get a lemon and coriander one that was lovely, but they don't seem to do it anymore alas!
Falafel burgers with pittas, salad, and spicy potatoes are on my menu for next week. Am telling the family that I'm just making "Greek burgers" as a vegetarian meal would probably lead to trouble!

I get creative with hummus - sometimes I throw it away, sometimes I eat it.

Chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, hot sauce, cumin, curry powder, chicken stock, onions, carrots, green onions - not all at once, sometimes all at once, just depends!
