That line got me through many temptations. There is no doubt that skinny feels way better than McDonalds tastes.

I hope you're right.

Most seminars I've been to include sandwiches, already dressed salads, too many carbs, etc.

Always better to be prepared with some veggies and/or a piece of grilled chicken in your purse.

Happy Weekend Everyone!

Hubby took me to the movies last night.....we saw Jack the Giant Slayer. It was ok....I think I would've liked Oz a bit better, but it was still fun to go out without the kiddies. I made the Chocolate cake in a mug and put it in a ziplock baggie to eat in the theatre which he had his sour patch kids...lol It was the first time I had had that....it was pretty good, put I think it needed a stronger chocolate taste, so next time, I might some WF choc. syrup to it. But I was a good girl, even though the smell of popcorn made my mouth water a bit

In this case I am close enough to home,2 minutes, that I can run home if need be. I won't be shy about asking for undressed salad or veggies. This particular conference center is known for it's buffets, so I am sure there will be something. Anyplace else and I would pack a lunch.

Morning everyone! So sick of the cold and snow! I see some online shopping in my future today

Does anyone else plan for events after goal to keep them motivated? I expect to reach my goal around July and am planning a combined birthday party/backyard brew-fest. I think it keeps me focused. It will also be the first time many family and friends will see me in many months, very excited for the big reveal! Before IP big parties were a source of stress and not wanting to participate, can't wait for that to be a thing of the past!

Good morning to everyone. I haven't posted for a few days. But I have been reading and enjoying everyone's great ideas and successes. We just returned from a short trip to Minnesota to see a great friend and my aunt and cousins. We also took in a fun eagle presentation in Wabasha. I recommend it! Enough about me. I remember reading on here (when I could get Wi-Fi ), how to prepare or soften the rutabages in the microwave. I have searched the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday daily chats, plus used search....but just can't find it. I haven't officially started yet ( Tuesday) but I am collecting tips and recipes. I really liked the idea of using rutabages with corned beef. If anyone has time I would sure appreciate that tip repeated. Have a great day everyone.

Good morning all! Very comforting to find you here..here's a hug from me...Chilly one outside, looks like I'm inside for a bit! Going to do some cooking and baking to prepare for the week back after the March break. Trying the muffins using 1pack of otmeal and 1pack of crepe, and a big pot of soup filled with veggies. Jello for a treat, and tapioca pudding. Put in containers (bought new ones at Ikea this week ) and freeze. That way I can just grab and go, make sure I have a big salad ready and voila! Stress free mornings!
