Made it through today's test. Ds did well today. Thankful for safe travel.

Sorry about the HUGE photo, but it was too good to not share. The tiny print in the pink box has daily sugar limits for women=6 tsp/day and men=9 tsp/day. One teaspoon of granulated sugar equals 4 grams of sugar.

Have fish marinating for grilled lemon-pepper hake. Going to "bake" potatoes on the grill and steam some green beans. Raisin bread for breakfast is in the bread-maker, but need to boil eggs still.

GosfordGirl/Cheryl Yikes for gurgly ears-not good. Hope the xylitol helps and you feel better. At this stage you might need a decongestant to open things up so your rinse can even reach inside to wash everything. Politics stinks here too.

BillBlueEyes Yes, adults are allowed to own Legos...especially something as fun as an EV3! So sorry your cough is still hanging on. Hope your peaches turn out better than expected.

Lexxiss /Debbie Kudos for OP and healthy as well as exercise. it is good your dh is healthier and more social, but that sure cuts into your time!

flnu Kudos for 3 on time to bed. Hope tennis goes well tomorrow! I agree with your assessment of DF. I'm glad I read it and had good take-away thoughts, but feel Beck is a better overall plan long-term.

nationalparker I have relatives that once grandma is gone there will be NO effort on my part to maintain any relationship. So I understand and even believe that it is healthy to not plan on constant contact with you sister-why poison yourself? Wishing you a calm trip with little disturbance from her and an awesome night sleep.

gardenerjoy Not catastrophizing is good and a step in the right direction.

onebyone Sorry about your hungry day-don't enjoy those! Kudos for a bike ride and the realization the pool is close enough to be in on your plan too.

millie56 Kudos for checking in after your discouraging news. I'd probably get a second opinion about "nothing helping" because that doesn't sound right. Losing weight will definitely make less pressure on the joint and should help.

Beck FB Tuesday Reality Check: Don’t expect that you’ll be able to eat like everyone else around you because then you’re likely to feel deprived. It’s important to redefine your definition of "normal" eating and remind yourself that you ARE eating in a completely normal way - for someone who is trying to lose weight and keep it off.

Good evening... morning? tomorrow? This is my 'safe space' to be honest and I so appreciate the support and positivity.

Tricia - I love your new pic! Your pooch is looking more like ours! If I could learn how to insert a photo, I'd try it. I don't know how to insert a URL of a pic in a folder on my computer. ... That got me looking at the pics I have of her on here and now I miss her more

GardenerJoy - Thank you for the reminder of the Serenity Prayer. I've always liked that and it's not even been in my consciousness here lately.
I need to have the wisdom to know that I cannot change the terminal cancer. I cannot change my sister, but I CAN change my reactions to a lot and how I allow myself to be treated.

OneByOne - MAJOR kudos on talking yourself INTO the bike ride - and what a good find that you can ride to the pool - double bonus.

Millie - That is hard to fathom a dr. that gives no options for pain relief - sounds like you are taking control of seeing what might help a bit with the aqua aerobics. Wise.

Forgot to even write ARCs for my trip - I'm thankful that mention of these pop up in posts.

Bill - I had a woodpecker that pecked on the downspout looking for who knows what at dawn ... I always pictured another one at the end of the spout, gobbling up the bugs and such that were dislodged from the fella on top hammering away. Do cardinals mate for life? I have a cardinal couple in my backyard that I've seen for three years, I swear. But no, I can't tell them from ones in anyone else's yard But I think they trust me more now. ha ha - wishful thinking.

Just a few personals - folks are getting ready for bed and I'm going to get this laptop charged up a bit. We're closing in on the holiday weekend - forgot it was one until someone asked how we were spending it!

Coaches

I had a desk day today but got up to almost 9000 steps (yesterday I made 12000 so not sure how - maybe the fitbit is a bit sensitive. That or I am a jack-in-the-box who never sits still)

I am making steak (beef) marinated in a paste of porcini mushrooms, chilli, garlic, and olive oil with roasted purple carrots, orange sweet potato, parsnips and broccoli. I didn't take a leaf out of Maryann's book and did not make 'thrice' the amount of roasted veggies - silly! So as you can see my appetite is not affected by gurgling ears.

I didn't go to gym today because I have a PT session booked for tomorrow morning - and realised it is 2 weeks since I did gym - we do strength stuff so I should be OK with breathing and will avoid aerobics. Weight stays the same - a little above ticker

BillBE - peaches and blueberries sound so nice. LOL at the placebo effect of guilt leading to an overnight weight gain (forgot to say - my canned red salmon is taken straight up - the only thing is the vinegar on the tomato and onion. An old family meal. Now I need to work out how to eat canned sardines the way you do - can't come at them without toast but love them then)

Debbie (Lexxiss) - your canned salmon method sounds worth a go! What is SF as a brand for pickle relish. Yay for stopping smoking - not sure about the social outcome though

Flnu - Credit for being in bed close enough to 10pm for 3 days - seems like progress. Like your questions about maintenance - would like them even more if I was anywhere near that range

Nationalparker - I hope you and your father get some rest. You especially won't have anything to give if you don't rest soon and you might have to make that a priority. Can your brother relieve you for one night? Your comments about snacks and how you ate the last time you were at home reminded me of my response to DietFix and enjoying food being important. When I was under 40 that is the way I ate - I was always busy and distracted and didn't think a lot about food until suddenly most of the day was gone, and I wanted to eat. And I usually ate something healthy and well prepared and really enjoyed it - it isn't the position of not caring about food which I find odd. But is was about not obsessing about it - when, how much, how many calories and so on. Life was simpler and I was thin!

Gardenerjoy - glad you have travel plans to entertain you. Your theories about calorie counting are interesting - that it can be demotivating - will have to watch myself

Onebyone - credit for talking yourself into going for a bike ride - and then going all that way! And making plans for future exercise. Way to go

Millie56 - I find it strange that the doctor could be that clear about something that I know is deeply contested so I suggest you get other opinions at some time. And work with your primary care doctor to deal with the inflammation issues. Good luck with chiropractic - I had a few bad experiences with my back (was prepared to be positive) and I really don't like their business model but yours might be great. Physiotherapy?? The way you work the program is motivating

Tricia - Your dinner sounds good! With your horde you do need to be organised. Glad your DS did well today

Thumbs up Wednesday - National Waiters and Waitresses Day

Diet Coaches/Buddies – Walked, CREDIT moi, further; no one hears you coughing when you're walking briskly, LOL. I passed a different library giving me the opportunity to check out Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy: The Harvard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating by Walter C. Willett so I can make sure my brain hasn't absorbed too much nonsense from reading the unfiltered Web. Willett has been plowing through the Framingham Heart Study data for decades - perhaps the largest set of nutrition data ever collected. Then stopped by a business that specializes in large, ornate picture frames suitable for, say, a Modigliani - should I happen to buy one at the next Sotheby's auction. Our community garden has sugar snaps climbing about 12 inches, lettuce looking edible, and various other plants peeking out.

Eating was on plan, CREDIT moi. Dinner on the patio required a jacket but worth it since DW's plants are looking their best. Dinner included grilled fresh, sustainably harvested, wild caught, Coho Salmon - as good as it gets.


onebyone – Monster Kudos for "YES! I rode my bike through the park and back!" Ouch that you had to find your path through a "hungry day."

Joy (gardenerjoy) – This seems more and more important to me as the years go by, "I’m no longer turning small problems into big ones."

Debbie (Lexxiss) – Terrific attitude, "I still love getting paid to exercise." [Thanks for the canned salmon recipe - gotta try that.]

Cheryl (GosfordGirl) – Now I'm drooling for your dinner - this thread is becoming delightful food porn, LOL. Kudos for 9000 steps.

nationalparker – Admiring the clear thinking, "I suppose my mind is saying, you can deal with this because it's not forever." [Neat notion that woodpeckers are hunting bugs in pairs - you could be the first to publish that, LOL. This site suggests that Cardinals on Cape Cod in Massachusetts do, indeed, mate for life.]

Tricia (AZtricia) - Wowza! Love getting slapped upside the head with sugar info. When I become Czar, sugar soda will be banished! Congrats to your DS for doing well on his test. Drooling over your "grilled lemon-pepper hake."

flnu - Thanks for "I must enjoy life while losing weight" - a good reminder suitable for about anything we want to accomplish.

millie56 - Your intuition that less weight will east hip pain seems pretty reasonable. Perhaps your doctor is trying to make sure that you understand that it won't entirely go away. Water aerobics has got to be the greatest exercise when joints hurt.

I'll be off internet for a couple of days. I'm staying at a place I've been before. It's a condo, but owned by a bed-and-breakfast so they stock the fridge with breakfast casseroles to re-heat and sweet treats for afternoon/evening snacks. DH will take a bite or two and say "too much fat" or "too much sugar" and ignore it. Then, I proceed to eat both my share and his share (and they are generously proportioned for two people). Last time, I made a note to myself that if we went there again, I would tell them to not bring us any food. I did and they called to confirm it (it didn't sound like I was the first to make that request).

So, I have high hopes that this will be a better eating experience for me, bringing my own food with just one meal at a restaurant.

WI: NA kg, Exercise: +30 890/1500 minutes for May, Food: 70% op, Read my Advantages and Responses: yes

BillBlueEyes: I liked Eat, Drink, and Weigh Less that Walter Willett wrote with Mollie Katzen (of Moosewood Cookbook fame). I'll be interested to see how you like his other book. Looking that up....I just discovered that Willett co-authored a brand-new book called Thinfluence about environmental factors and weight. That might be interesting.

millie56: I'm surprised that your doctor said that. Weight loss reduced my pain, just as my doctor said it would. Maybe he's pointing out that your particular problem isn't run-of-the-mill arthritis and so you can't expect the same results? Still, it's hard to imagine that a lower weight isn't going to make some difference in how you move and how your joint responds to that.

Had leftover fish for lunch and enjoyed the light lemon flavor. I think it might have actually been better cold. I am surprised but pleased to have actually lost a pound this week! We'll see if I can lose another in the next 7 days.

Our summer schedule is filling up fast and I already have one double-booked day I have to change. Today we are off to swim team practice (we are attending 3X/wk right now-just for exercise) and since I didn't boil eggs yesterday that needs to be done soon. One thing I've learned by experience which Diet Fix also teaches is that after 90 minutes of swimming the boys need to eat IMMEDIATELY. Their snack is almost always a boiled egg and a slice of home-made whole grain bread. Feeding them makes the 20+ minute drive home to dinner bearable for all of us.

OP so far today and not too hungry so calories are on the low side.

gardenerjoy
Wishing you a fun and relaxing trip with OP food choices.

BillBlueEyes Looking forward to the day you are Czar! Jealous of your community garden. There are none available close to us

GosfordGirl/Cheryl Kudos for your high step numbers. Your veggies sound awesome! Dr. Yani (Diet Fix) Was featured in US News today talking about 10,000 steps- LINK

nationalparker Thanks! Puppy is a sweetie. The only way I can find to insert pictures is if they are already online, otherwise you have to have an account to upload them (FB works, or photobucket) then the tool can pull in your picture. The tool is the yellow icon w/ grey triangles and a "stamp?".

Beck FB Wednesday Sabotaging Thought:
I'm exhausted but I'm at work so I can't sleep. I'll eat to give me energy.

Response: Even though I feel exhausted, it doesn’t mean I can’t push through and still get my work done. If I eat every time I feel tired, it’s likely I won’t be able to lose weight. Which would I rather be: Overweight AND tired, or just tired?

Thumbs up checking in - stayed the course today

Coaches

I did not move onto the Hunger Experiments of success skills#6 - title escapes me and my book is inthe bedroom where DH is now sleeping (oops. oh well). The experiments require planning so I'll need to take another look at them tomorrow.

I loaded the kiln today with the things I have made since the 5th of May. It's a goodly amount. *credit* I have kiln duty for it tomorrow and will actually get to see it on Friday-then glaze it-then back into the kiln. *credit for making and keeping to a production schedule*

My friend packed us both food, as she does everytime we go to the guild together, but I did not eat the homemade cookie and muffin(mini one) she gave me instead brought it home for DH but considered chucking it as DH doesn't need sugar. BTW I tried on his windbreaker by mistake this morning (we have two identical ones that were free from the company he works for) and discovered he had an open bag of red licorice in the inside pocket. Hmmm. Bad sign. he has the diabetes and he has pretty much re-gained what he lost. I really need to not give DH bad food. I'm going to add this to my action items list moving forward...

Not much else. All is well. I was worried that I would not get my 5min exercise onthen decded to just play some music and dance to it. Tonight I discovered the Bowie's Diamond Dogs is slightly longer than 5min! Excellent! It felt good.

ACTION ITEMS

-weigh yourself today YES down 0.4
-eat only sitting down, slowly, savouring every bite YES
-drink a glass of water before every meal YES
-no sugar today YES
-move 5 minutes on purpose today YES! I danced
-spontaneous exercise -nothing to report
-close the kitchen at 8pm YES
-give myself credit YES
-check in with coaches YES
-no seconds YES
-read advantage and response cards-- not yet but will
-fill out skills sheet in green book at end of the day --not yet

Coaches, not a bad day - started off with dog walk and then gym which I haven't done before while I am still fasting (not breaking fast until midday). And I hadn't done any exercise for 2 weeks really so thought it might kill me. But I survived and didn't faint away from starvation or anything. Then I wasted time doing work related errands that I shouldn't have had to do and didn't settle to work until after lunch so things are behind. I am looking forward to a simple dinner of sausages and eggs - I am unbelievably tired and need to go to bed early again. Hopefully I get to do some work in the morning before I flag later in day. I made a bit over 9000 steps so far. And my ears are not gurgling quite so much

At work I resisted some scones and cream and jam that someone bought for us all to have with coffee together - but I took one to have after midday. Small triumphs

BillBE - the Framingham study fades into pre-history. Tried to find the book in the library but not there or anywhere here interestingly. LOL at food porn - but it is interesting to know what people are eating - great examples. Your dinner sounded wonderful - and that salmon seems totally unobtainable here

Gardenerjoy - Sensible approach to B&B room fridges - they are a trap. Hope eating goes well

Tricia - I am going to have to start to cook with leftovers in mind - I seem to be in disarray. Yes - what Dr Yani says is totally on song with his book. Thanks for the link. What I like about keeping mobile all day is what it supposed to do for insulin sensitivity etc. Like today's sabotaging thought

Onebyone - great progress - and yay for down .4 pounds. Nice to see you improvising to get in your 5 mins of exercise

Thumbs up Thursday

Diet Coaches/Buddies – Walked with DW, CREDIT moi, to check out a favorite birding/walking place. Saw several Double-crested Cormorants trying to look like Common Loons (Divers in the UK) at a distance in the water. Lots of nesting activity by all. A pair of Canada Geese were followed by three goslings. All was right with the world.

Eating was on plan, CREDIT moi. The challenge was to avoid the snacks put out by DW for three female friends gathering for a planning meeting. Even though I was to greet then disappear, that put me in contact with the snacks before and after the guests were here. I nibbled none, CREDIT moi, even though it included DW's delightful mix of nuts that always calls me.


onebyone – Always Kudos for "stayed the course today." YouTube'ing Diamond Dogs as I type to feel your experience. I hadn't noticed the line, "I'll keep a friend serene" before.

Joy (gardenerjoy) – Super Kudos for demonstrating the hard and the easy of the Beck plan: the hard - recognizing then calling in advance to cancel the food stocked in your condo that would be a problem; the easy - sticking to your plan when the excess food wasn't available. I like that so much because it counters the thought that the hard part is white-knuckling it through the urges to over indulge. [Thanks for the heads up about Willett's Thinfluence - now ordered from my library that is just processing three copies of the book published only nine days ago.]

Cheryl (GosfordGirl) – Need to remind myself each time I read "scones and cream and jam" that it's clotted cream - which we don't get around here. Kudos for resisting a snack that luscious.

Tricia (AZtricia) - Cold fish is just the best. Kudos for giving your guys a hard boiled egg and whole-grain bread for snack - their brains are getting wired right without them knowing about it.

Here are my rules:
  1. Eat a substantial amount of protein, vegetables, and fruit at every meal.
  2. Don't eat any junk food after dinner.
  3. Eat only raw vegetables while preparing dinner.
  4. When eating out, eat up to only 25 percent more than I usually do when I'm home.

Hi Coaches!

Yesterday was an emotional day, and would have been far better had I written my plan the night before. DH woke up on the wrong side of the bed and added his grumpiness to my stress of having to meet with the renter/growers. lol. I followed my "crisis plan" which is to ok a wider range of food choices but NOT to eat anything not allowed on my plan. I went to the store and came out with 100% healthy. Credit.

BBE, yay for fresh, sustainably harvest, wild caught Coho! Alaska, I would guess! I have a piece of frozen...thawing in the fridge.

onebyone, great that you recognize (via coat pocket) that DH doesn't need you to be bringing him sweet stuff. Adding that to your action list is a good choice. Lots of credits yesterday! I have my favorite song for the 5 min. move….it's a little longer, too.

AZtricia, nice when the leftovers are better than the first go around. Kudos for dropping another pound as a result of your hard work!

gardenerjoy, have a nice trip! Great insights!

OK, off to my day. We're working on a rental which always keeps my food on track. I have a written plan for today, once again recycled from my notes on the fridge. Credit.




Cheryl(GosfordGirl) SF(Sugar Free) Relish is a sweet relish which adds splenda instead of corn syrup. I try not to purchase or have anything in the fridge with the high fructose or regular corn syrup. Interesting in your comment about keeping moving and insulin resistance. I'd like to read more about that. Credit for staying your course!

Talking success skill #6 -overcome hunger, cravings, and emotional eating

Coaches

Mini-check-in to say I moved my ticker officially down 4.5lbs today! Woot! Woot!

I also found myself spontaneously saying to my sister on skype yesterday "I think I'm doing it (losing all the weight) this time." The subconsious, she's-a fallin in line! Woot! Woot!

I will be doing hunger experiment #3 Prove to yourself that hunger kicks in as I do it after dinner. So I can plan for it. Woot! Woot!

AND I am off to the guild to babysit my precious kiln full of precious clay objets'd'art slowly baking and getting solid. Woot! Woot!

Be back later. Bye!


UPDATE: I felt faint at the guild today. I did have breakfast *credit* but I think I needed a snack today and did not have one at hand. We were firing the kiln and the other one had been on too and it was very hot in the room. I was pretty woozy and I have not been sleeping soundly either so I think it all caught up to me a bit today. I ate lunch out. It was planned a few days ago. I had the ice tea with sugar there. Then came home and DH called to say he'd be late so I ate my planned lunch (forgot we were going out this morning) and had the drinkable yogurt for dessert-and it was sugary. I knew that before I drank it but I have not had sugar since.

Sugar. I was extra tired. I was extra hungry. I chose sugar. No brainer there. Would have been better to not have had it. Still, *credit* for stopping and for not having any other suagr available to me in the house.

I re-read the hunger experiment I was supposed to do today: basically note that after 20 minutes you are full. Well after supper I got up and looked in the fridge more than once and looked at the clock on the stove and thought I'm still hungry but *credit* did not eat, but I didn't notice that I felt full either. I am distracted today. I may be traveling to a friend's art show on the weekend + I am excited to see my work come out of the kiln + I have a special project to complete for a client. I have been distracted all day. My friend's hatch on her giant SUV bonked me on the noggin' this afternoon as she shut it when we were ready to leave the guild. That vehicle is BIG. I didn't even notice it.


ACTION ITEMS

-weigh yourself today YES down 0.4 Official weigh-in today: -4.5lbs from last week. *CREDITO A MUNDO*
-eat only sitting down, slowly, savouring every bite YES - ate and savoured. Could have eaten slower.
-drink a glass of water before every meal YES 2 of 3 meals - forgot at lunch out
-no sugar today NO - I ordered an ice tea at a restaurant for lunch and totally forgot it comes with sugar. I opted to drink it today.
I also had a yogurt drink thing for dessert and it had sugar in it.

-move 5 minutes on purpose today YES
-spontaneous exercise -nothing to report
-close the kitchen at 8pm YES
-give myself credit YES
-check in with coaches YES
-no seconds YES
-read advantage and response cardsYES

Phooey - I hate it when I read and start a post and then forget to submit it! Long day yesterday - wrapped it up at 1:30 a.m. and up at 5:30 - hoping for more tonight. With no appointments for two days on the weekend, I'm hoping to sleep in a smidge, but need to rouse for morning meds by 7 a.m. ...

Took dad for his two transfusions this morning -had to be there by 9 only to be told that it was for tomorrow, not today. I said, no - they're for today and the labs to review how they worked is tomorrow before the weekend. No, yes, no yes. I showed them his bracelet that they affixed yesterday, saying it was for Thursday. OH. Ok. No room and we're sorry. I said where do I go to get these transfused this morning, then? Please let me know that. The ER. Okay - we'll go there, but then issue arose that we couldn't (and I don't want that because of poss of infection and his low white blood cells...) End result is that I was patient, friendly but firm, and we got in when they could fit us in late morning and got it handled. The nurse was VERY nice - it wasn't her mistake and she didn't have a bed for 90 minutes, so throwing a fit wouldn't solve a thing. She kept thanking us for our patience, etc. and I thought, PLEASE just let one dang thing go right for my poor dad. One thing - let ONE thing work out as planned without a trip to the hospital, the ER, something. Worried mom will go into hospital here soon because of her inability to eat and severe montezuma revenge. I want to look up psychosomatic (?) inability to eat. It's been going on for years, off and on.

Whining stopped. Hope to get to bed right at 11:30 if all meds are taken and folks settle in for the night.

Food - okay today as far as calories - nutrition not the greatest. PB/crackers for breakfast and lunch in a hurry. And not even my delish Trader Joe's peanut butter

Hope everyone has a wonderful start to the holiday weekend!

All done with driving to oldest ds's multimedia class as today was the last day-hurray! First AP test took 30 minutes less than expected, so I'm hoping tomorrows will as well. Today was OP. Bit of a sore throat and not very hungry, hope I'm not getting something!

nationalparker Glad your firmness resulted in the right care for your dad. Wishing you an awesome weekend too.

onebyone Kudos for finding your weight loss grove and losing 4.5 - keep on keeping on

Lexxiss Congrats for your healthy shopping trip on a difficult day. Great resistance muscle!

BillBlueEyes Love the Day 16 list, thanks! I don't recognize it from the pink book, is it from the other? Kudos for your nice walk and OP eating and strong resistance muscle.

GosfordGirl/Cheryl Hope you feel more rested tomorrow, glad to hear your ears are a bit better.

Beck FB Think Thin Thursday Tip: If you think, “I may as well just finish [this food] now because I’m going to eventually, anyway,” just trash it! You can get rid of extra food either by finishing it OR by throwing it away. You never need to eat something to make it go away.

Default Friday night

Another desk day - steps not yet 5000 so not leaping around today. I have eaten on plan but had tastes today while I did lamb shanks in the slow cooker. Now I am making steamed low-carb veggies to eat with one serve of them. It will be nice to curl up on the lounge on this Friday night and enjoy dinner. And all the leftovers over the next week.

BillBE - double-crested cormorants look particularly eccentric I have to say. Credit for restraint in the face of nuts and snacks [not clotted cream, although I think ours is thicker than yours, but whipped cream on Aussie scones. Clotted cream is a British thing I think - sticky even].

Debbie (Lexxiss) - of course - SF=sugar free! Obvious when you say it. Yes - I do stay away from mountains of sugar and don't buy sweetened things - especially HFCS

Onebyone- hope all your precious objects do well in the kiln. And hope you are feeling better after you ate and got out of the heat. Credit for not eating after dinner - you are in the zone

Nationalparker - kudos for restraint and calm - you did very well indeed. Hope you got to bed

Tricia - fight that sore throat - on the up side at least you aren't hungry [not meaning to sound like I lack empathy at all ]

Thumbs up Friday

Diet Coaches/Buddies – Spent a zillion hours trying to repair a Logitech optical mouse following the instructions from a YouTube video. Much fun, much frustration, and ultimate failure. The repair requires giving life to a worn leaf spring by re-bending - a dubious trick. I'm pleased with myself for chasing the problem to its core before heading to a computer store to price a new one. The models in the store didn't include the one I wanted so I ultimately Amazoned it. Using a computer with a touchpad instead of a mouse is like operating without a thumb, LOL. In a fit of organization a few years ago I tossed out a box of old keyboards and mice that I wish I had to use for the two day wait for the new one to arrive. The frustration cost me a FREE sample of a pasta dish at Trader Joe's. Ouch.

With Thursday breakfast, I had the California peach that DW bought on Monday, certain that it would be ready. Its texture was that of a wimpy apple; its taste was bland. The remaining ones are likely to improve in texture, but not in taste. I've been here before.

Free Advice: If you go to a display of photographs of Nepal and find that you've unexpectedly arrived at the reception for the photographer, and if your head gets fuzzy at the table of FREE food, and if you find two dumplings on your napkin (when one would well suffice), and if you see the bowl of bright red sauce to top the dumplings, do NOT make the assumption that Nepal isn't Mexico, isn't in the tropics, and thus the sauce must be Red Bell Pepper based. My palette was seared - but I overate anyway. I do better at receptions when I have planned in advance. Best I could do was to declare what I ate to be dinner so I'm not off the wall for the day. But I'm not within Beck's "25 percent more" that makes sense. I need to work on unexpected meals appearing in my life - perhaps by reading the very stuff I'm typing from Day 16 of the Pink Book.


onebyone – CONGRATO A MUNDO for that nice scale drop. Yep, "she's-a fallin in line!" My take is that you don't feel full after twenty minutes, but cease to feel hungry. Ouch for your poor head, already feeling woozy, getting bonked by the hatch of an SUV.

Debbie (Lexxiss) – Neat to expand food choices rather than volume. Did your indoor farmer tenants respond sanely?

Cheryl (GosfordGirl) – Yay for low carb veggies, curling up on the lounge, and leftovers for next week. You're on a roll. [Thanks for the whipped cream correction - but I have to drool more since I know whipped cream, LOL.]

nationalparker – Super Kudos for "patient, friendly but firm" - wish I'd remember how effective that is instead of acting out. Continue to send supportive thoughts.

Tricia (AZtricia) - Kudos for an on plan day. Hope that sore throat doesn't become serious. [Yep, that quote is from Beck's Pink Book.]

day 16 Prevent Unplanned Eating

These rules enable me to leave afternoon receptions feeling good and looking forward to dinner. They keep me from gaining more than a couple of pounds when I'm on vacation. Following a rule eliminates the struggle over what to eat or not to eat.
