Thanks for starting the thread this week, Apryl (I've been pre-occupied...mainly in the bathroom) :o Let's make this first week of June the first of many on plan and accountable weeks! Looks like you and Jenaya are leading the way - way to go!

I finally went to the doctor today and have been told it looks like I fell victim to mild food poisoning. Wow, do I ever have issues with food - if I eat too much of it I get fat and when I try to eat healthy it makes me sick! :mad: He said probably chicken or seafood was the culprit. :s:

We were able to narrow it down to the food I eat at work because nobody else at home has the same symptons (thank goodness). I have to admit to not always refrigerating my food at work and letting it sit for hours in a drawer before eating, plus I buy lots of salads with poultry and seafood from markets downtown that have been sitting in the open for awhile. So, a warning to everyone to make sure you don't leave your food lying around for lengths of time and to be careful what you buy from markets!

I'll admit to being taken care of nicely - G's been bringing me cups of tea, the girls have been tiptoeing around quietly and the dog brought me a milkbone! :lol:

The doctor gave me something to settle my tummy and prevent the horrible gastric disorders I've been suffering and told me to stick to liquids for another day to flush it out. Of course once he said that my appetite immediately returned and now I'm starving. :rolleyes: I figure I've lost a lot of water weight, but know that'll come back as soon as I can eat properly again. I haven't been exercising for the last couple of days, although my intestines have been doing gymnastics...

So I'll end this post by saying when it comes to eats, drinks and exercise, I've had plenty to drink, nothing much to eat and will continue lazing around for another day. :D

Sigh, when I think of all the suspect food I ate in Russia its difficult to think that a Canadian chicken or salmon did me in! :p

I would love to be a part of this thread, but am having a very hard time justifying typing it all out into 2 different places. I need to have the fitday set up for my renal dietician, lest I give her a link to here :lol: Not that this isn't a great place, mind you. She was very glad that I had such a wonderful place for support.

So I'm going to make my fitday link a part of my signature. But I will be checking into this thread & posting encouragement, and as ALWAYS, click the link in my sig to see how I'm eating that day.

Apryl: thank you for starting the thread!
Jenaya: welcome to the gang!
Jilly: I'm glad you finally went to the doctor, I was beginning to think we had another victim of the 100# Club Water. :bb: :rofl:

05-31-2005, 08:51 AM
Hi. I just posted in the weigh-in thread. I lost another pound this week. I realized by looking at the last thread before this one that every week, I start off saying that I need to get back on track. Then I do Monday (or this week Tuesday) and have a loss.

Here's a thought, I weigh in on Saturday and usually go out Saturday night, then it runs into Sunday, by Monday I have no flex points + left and I really focus for the rest of the week. What I need to do it focus through the weekend and then my weight might start moving a little faster???

I tend to walk a fine line between focused and depravation. The fasted way for me to get off plan is to feel deprived, which so far I really haven't.

Anyway, I can't do much about it this week, but next week after weigh-in, I'm just going to stay on plan as much as possible and see just what might happen.

Anyone else have this happen?

05-31-2005, 12:31 PM
Jilly: I'm glad you finally went to the doctor, I was beginning to think we had another victim of the 100# Club Water. :bb: :rofl:

Oh yeah SAPF, you're soooo funny :rolleyes: :p If it was :bb: though, to make me THIS sick it'd have to be the spawn of the :devil: !

I guess I can always go over to fitday to view your consumption, but I'm going to kind of miss seeing what toppings you've picked off your pizza and what new shooters you've discovered (Bubblegum is gross!) :barf:

Oh no, thanks for the butt-kick Jill. I also use fitday everyday. It seems I can only manage one posting. So, I will now become technically literate and try and figure out how to post it here OR just write it both places. I slipped up the last two days : ( Oh well, I am back on track again. Seems like the busier I am, the less time I give to being healthy, wonder why that is? Si, I like your notation of FAILURE ISN'T DISHONOURABLE QUITTING IS!. I will keep reminding myself of that - in fact, I will remind all those other folks who haven't posted lately (Sandi girl, where are you? - Jill put out the APB....)

I love reading everyone's food journals. I get some great ideas. And sometimes I have to look stuff up. (had no clue what Quark was)

Yesterday was strange for me because I was ill, and craving carbs. Had to stretch for the veggies, fruit. And I'm proud of myself for the popcorn. We have the full-fat, buttered microwave popcorn in the house because our daughter needs the fat and fiber, and my husband won't eat the low-fat kind. So I carefully measured a cup and a half into my bowl and gave him the rest of the bag. It looked so pitiful and small in there. *sighs* And it disappeared much too quickly. I wanted more. He offered more. And I turned him down, waiting another ten minutes for the fiber of the popcorn to trigger the "not hungry" feelings. Then I didn't want any anymore. Yeah!

Quaker Cinnamon Oatmeal Squares cereal with fresh raspberries and skim milk

2 cups of spaghetti with a little bit of oil and salt

What is a louisiana tuna and cheese melt? Sounds yummy.

Last night was my treat night and I still have not been able to keep to my 600 over. I went 3 times that. I've been losing good still but I still don't like eating that much. It's like I'm still hanging onto the old me.

That's cool about the popcorn, Synger. I did exactly the same thing yesterday with Munchies which are a big weakness of mine. My 50 g fitted neatly inside a measuring cup whilst hubby piled his to the brim of an enormous cereal bowl. Hmph!

I think we both deserve a pat on the back for showing restraint. :smug:

I'm with you, SAPF - sometimes Fitday is so frustrating. Even the simpliest of things can be impossible to add. In fact I gave up because it seemed everything I ate had to be made "custom". :?: I'll just stick with my WW points and hope I'm doing okay on the fat, carb and protein ratios.

What is a louisiana tuna and cheese melt? Sounds yummy.

While I couldn't find any recipe specifically called that, just from the name I'd assume it might be a tuna melt (a grilled sandwich of tuna fish salad with cheese) where the tuna fish salad part has a Lousiana, i.e. spicy or cajun, kick.

Justin Wilson is a Cajun cook. His recipe for tuna salad (http://www.recipesource.com/fgv/salads/11/rec1132.html)
adds some hot sauce. If you were trying to recreate the sandwich, I'd start with that and then modify. Personally, I'd use a chipotle sauce for more of a Southwestern kick. I like that fairly mild smokiness that chipotle peppers bring. I'm not a hothead, but I like a little bit of spice. (my motto is "My tongue can tingle but if my lips are burning, it's too hot")

Suchaprettyface: I love the idea of a special snack bowl! I'll have to look into that. Oh, and I use Fitday, too, and hotdog (frankfurter) buns are found listed under the Bread and Rolls section: "Roll, white, soft". One of the options is "hamburger, frankfurter, onion roll..."

Yesterday was a good day for food, up until midnight. But that counts on today's food, so I stayed within my plan. After midnight I ended up bundling our 4-yo daughter and my husband into the car and driving to Virginia to Urgent Care for the migraine that was making DH vomit and unable to see, and writhing and whimpering in agony. By 2 am, I had to go find the snack machines for Gem and me. Trying to deal with a crisis and keep a good facade for her when I haven't eaten in a long time is almost impossible. But instead of the hostess cupcakes and Lay's potato chips I REALLY wanted, I settled for a bag of Combos (cheez-stuffed pretzels). I figured even artificial cheese might have a bit of protein. Come to find out the Cheez-its cheese crackers my daughter chose for herself (after I steered her away from the PopTarts and the cupcakes) had more protein than my Combos. But oh, well. I did drink a little of the Pepsi, too. I needed the pick-me-up for the drive home. But all, in all, it could have been much worse, food-wise.


Oatmeal with flaxseed and raisins (I had forgotten how many calories raisins could pack. I need to measure more closely next time so I don't eat too many)
Coffee with a bit of sugar and lots of skim milk

Canned apricots in light syrup
"Everything" bagel with Neufchatel cheese (like a light cream cheese)
cottage cheese

breaded fish fillet (not getting those again -- they're really oily and salty. I prefer the "naked" fish)
BIG salad with lots of raw veggies (broccoli, carrots, radishes, spinach), a little blue cheese dressing and some croutons

saltine crackers
milk (right before we headed out the door to urgent care, because I knew I needed some protein in my stomach)

coffee, milk, water

calories: around 1700, with a good five servings of fruit/veggies (yeah!)
Exercise: still wasn't feeling well, so only about 15 minutes of light gardening (walking around checking things, turning the compost tumbler, pulling some weeds, harvesting a few early strawberries, that sort of thing)
