Congrats on the new position! As long as you pre-plan the tighter schedule could work in your favor to keep you on plan!

I keep reading that if you are eating to few calories that it can slow down your weight loss...Maybe that is what was happening to you. Maybe adding a few more calories is what you needed to do.

That is FANTASTICIf you can resist while drinking...You are doing great! The smoking is more important to your health than the weight...so if you are maintaining or keeping the gain to a minimum...you are well on your way to becomming healthy!

Congratulations on getting the scale moving again! And we are all here to make sure you keep that enthusiasm!

Hope you and your family get well soon.

Another reason that is dislike winter...The food and candy parade. I don't keep that stuff at home. Starting at Halloween and going through St. Patricks Day. I can't escape it at the office. Everybody wants to share all the ooey, gooey, yummy calorie bombs they can find! AAARRRRGGGHHH!!!

Sorry for the dissapointment...but I am sure the scouts appreciated it...or will one day. Getting right back on track is exactly what you need to do...Way to go!

What's your favorite Autumn-appropriate healthy dish?

I love Butternut Squash.

So, I cube a squash. Cover it with a jar of No Sugar Added apple butter. Bake it at 275F for about 45 min - 1 hour. Mush it all up. Ta da! Apple Butternut Mashed Squash. (You can add splenda or sugar if you so desire.)
OH Thank You!!! A much safer subject and that sounds absolutly delish!!!! I HAVE to try that!

AMEN!!! I just had some tonight. My favorite way to have butternut squash is just cut up like fries and bake with a little pam and salt. nom nom nom

I also bought acorn squash and spaghetti squash today
Any ideas on the acorn squash ladies? I don't think I've ever prepared at home...


Thanks ladies for all the kind non-smoking words - it really does help!

I've got a super-delicious sweet potato and chickpea stew recipe. It's also got kale in it. It is positively to die for, and it's healthy and vegan. Yum!

Honeycrisp are my favorite apple, followed by Pink Lady! Love them!

Butternut squash is also a fave.

Acorn squash, I am a sucker for sweet/savory flavors, so I make it oven roasted brushed with tamari and olive oil and sprinkled with a bit of brown sugar...it's to die for!
(well...rather, to live healthier for!)

This looks really good as a main entree Acorn Squash With Wehani Rice & Pecan Stuffin Recipe

hi everyone,

I want thank all of you for your prayers for my husband. He made it out of surgery ok. He will be coming home as soon as he recovers enough to travel. He has a long road ahead of him but we can make it as long as we are together.

Congrats on the losses this week.

I made a lovely stir-fry for supper tonight, using carrots, broccoli, zucchini, tomatoes, and red peppers from my garden. Well, the carrots are from the farm stand, and the broccoli was from the grocery store.

Manick, your yard set-up is awesome, and your dog is darling!

Having a little bit of a hard time getting back into the sync of things with the 1 pound gain this past week. I ate half of a cookie this afternoon at the lunch that was brought in for a meeting I attended. Why, oh why do I do this to myself?

Sounds like a victory to me when you can stop yourself at 1/2 of a cookie!
