Not much planned today....thought of going to garage sales....then thought I would just stay home & read my book....then clean a bit.....I will go on the tredmill after.

Hey there April, I'm glad to see that you joined us on the food journal thread! Do you go to the ww meetings? or are you just doing it on your own? I would absolutely love to the have the day to myself! Hope you enjoyed it!

Did you make it to the treadmill? Do you have one at home? you like it? I did a 4 mile walking video this morning. It took 60 minutes to do it, but I felt good about my accomplishment. It really wasn't hard at all, it's just hard for me to give up the 60 minutes for exercise. I don't imagine I will get to do 60 minutes too often, but at least I know its there if I want to.

Hi Girls,

Just stoppin in for a quickie to post my food on Fitday and here. It sure is a learning experience day to low, next day to high, hopefully it will even out.

I do miss my chips but I have to say, I feel better eating like this. My two sisters came over tonight and I fed them one of my Atkins dinners.......they loved it !! Both walked away stuffed.

Salad w/london broil (dipped in butter), eggs, bacon, cheese, cucumbers, full fat dressing and mock potato salad. They were even fighting over who would take the remaining mock salad home. This time I put a little bacon in it.......MMMMMMMMMMM !

I only ate 1/2 cup b/c it is very high in caloires due to the mayo and bacon.

Well I better jump in the shower, long but nice day.

Good to see you April and Cathy........hope more follow.

Hugs !

Hi Cathy & tredmill is down the basement....I didn't get to it today. I am doing WW at home on my own.
I have done Fitday before....I should go there....because I's calories in....calories out.....that's all there is to really simple...we don't need any eating plan really. It's just better for us if we eat healthy.

I don't often have a day alone at home....there wasn't enough room in the boat for the dog & me....since there were aready 2 adults, 1 kid & a dog.....the boat is a 12 foot aluminium...our dog wasn't too happy that my DH left him behind.....he was waiting for him by the gate a long time....then when I called him in....he would go down the basement by himself.

I am still getting over the Effexor....withdrawal symptoms....I spilled some of the diet lemonade on the rug....was cleaning it up...a little while ago....& wham....all of a sudden....I get this real sad reason....not because I spilled the drink.....I won't ever take another antidepressant again....when you weigh the pros & cons of them.....there are too many cons....for me anyway.

Hi Judo Mom.....sorry to hear that you are down daughter- in- law told me that they....the psychiatric community..... are using the light box for people who don't have S.A.D. I know you have a light box.....I think I remember you saying you had one....did you try using it?

I know with depression....sometimes we feel just happens for no just hang in there.
