dinner: meatball and 15 cashews
snack: 1 cup LF milk blended with ice cubes and sweetener

Breakfast: egg and ricotta
Lunch: turkey salad and veg soup
Dinner: mushrooms, tomato, 2 meatballs sauteed together
Upcoming snack: :LF milk blended with ice cubes and maybe, just maybe 1 tbsp natural pb

And by the way for anyone who read my post this weekend when I was struggling, I feel great after 4 days back on P1. Cravings are gone and I no longer feel light headed or nauseated, and I am NOT calorie cycling this week. And I was down another pound this morning. It feels great to be back in control!

04-26-2011, 09:56 PM
l-sf peanut butter and banana sandwich on ww
s-broccoli and hummus
d-ww pizza w/arugula, pequillo peppers, and goat cheese. A bit of polenta with the same toppings (not on plan, but didn't have much). Salad
s-apple and natural pb

I'm reminding myself of the importance of planned snacks. It's a high stress time of the school year, and my five minute break before my afterschool rehearsals is always a time when the vending machine sings sweetly to me. Apple to the rescue!

04-27-2011, 02:37 AM
Hit my first real scale goal this morning. I was 160.8lbs. Just over 18lbs lost, or down 10% of my starting weight!

Looking forward to keep plugging away at this and busting into the 150s... which I haven't seen since 2005!

Probably didn't need two thighs, especially since I was bad and left the skin on, but I ate dinner later and was really hungry, even after my protein bar. I was up half a pound today, but probably from losing so quickly this week, a little heavier dinner today, and eating dinner a couple hours later than normal.

04-28-2011, 02:24 PM
Hmmm... my post from this morning didn't work. I'm studying in a hospital library with rather fickle wireless internet these days. I guess it helps with procrastination a bit, but here I am anyway ;)

1oftheLuvs, Mmckellen, TwynnB, kmac1196, zeffryn, Sharonej, & TallandThin: Thank you so much! Love you ladies and the on-plan thread!

I was looking through the weights I've recorded on MFP & fitday all the way back to 2003 (been on there since i was 16! :eek: ), and I suspect in and around the 160-mark is about where my set-point lies. Glad school is going to finish up soon and I'll get a bit of a break so a can battle it!

Wt: 160.2

B: 1/2 banana & PB on Ezekiel toast.
L: 1/2 a WW tortilla with chicken, feta, tzatziki, tomatoes & cucumbers. Diet Coke.
Sn: Strawberries.
S: Vegetarian lasagna roll-ups.

Time to get studying! Have a good day everyone!

04-28-2011, 02:30 PM
Shelf - I think I'm dealing with my body's set point as well...though I've never been this low. I'm having quite a time getting below 145. I don't know if I should just accept it and stop trying to lose and just move to maintenance, or if I should try to push through it. I've been doing phase 1 this week to help rid myself of the water weight from Easter and that seems to have helped (had I been doing P1 for the first time and not realized that I was retaining water, I would have been stoked for this 9 lb. loss in just 4 days), but I'm still sitting here at 145. Maybe I'll continue with Phase 1 into next week (the chocolate bunny monster still is in the house) and see if that brings any progress.

@Shelf - I meant magazine reading as I was treadmilling. I was SUPER grumpy this morning and wanted to just chill out on the sofa, but made a deal with myself that I could read the magazine I wanted if I went to the gym and walked (fast + incline) while I did so. felt a lot better after :)

and YAY for meeting your goal!

Congrats, Sharon!
