I'm right there with you, Shrinking Susie! Hopefully all of these freezing temps, snow, & ice this winter means fewer bugs this summer! Stay cozy!

EMS70508 and Willsea, thanks for the interest. I will set up a doctors appt. I've been meaning to do that anyway. Will a simple CBC tell me of these possible deficiencies?
When you say regimen, do just want me to post a sample day's menu?
Thanks again.

A thyroid panel and specific tests for vitamin deficiency would not be part of a standard CBC
We need more than a sample day
We need to know exactly (all salt, oil, water, extras, how much lettuce)

TSH, free T3, Free T4, vitamin D, iron are some biggies. A full panel will give a bunch of stuff and tell a full story. Get ready to google all the acronyms or it will make little sense, but google to educate yourself.

We got about 7 inches of snow and it is windy, but I am hearing things are not impassable. I think that is funny because at the beginning of this winter people were say, oh, 7 inches, oh the world will end! My exercise will be digging out the driveway. We are not opening until noon at work, which is very nice of them and unusual. I think it is a nod toward all of our extreme effort over the holidays, plus half the building is out with the flu.

I watch Biggest Loser and love the transformations, but this year's winner has me dismayed. I am a swimmer and even before I swam I followed swimming because I think it is a beautiful sport and swimmers have great bodies! The young lady who won dieted herself down to 105(height 5-4) and if her body could support that(i.e. tiny bone structure) ok, but she looked like a bag of bones. Instead of looking 23 she looked like she was in her 30's. I really hope she puts some weight on. I was actually shocked at all 3 finalists and felt they all were two thin, but she was extreme and not a good role model. I have known some young girl swimmers who have issues with eating disorders and this made me sad.

I felt exactly the same about that girl. When she left the ranch she looked so healthy and when I saw her on the finale last night it made me sad because she was skin and bones! I hope all three finalists put on a little weight (and I think most do when the show is over) I thought the man whose wife died looked more handsome at the ranch as well.

Morning everybody!

65 - couldn't get back on yesterday to say - I am impressed and awed that you did the parasailing! I was floating in the ocean, watching people go up - I could never do it, I'm scared of heights!!! And my now ex-husband, son and I stayed at Akumal the last time we went to Mexico 4 years ago specifically for the reef and the turtles. This time was much, much better for me since I had laser eye surgery last September and could actually see

I don't watch the Biggest Loser but I know a few friends on FB were talking about the person who won being, what they thought, way too skinny. I'm 5'4" and I couldn't even imagine being 105lbs. I'd be worried about how "healthy" she actually is at that weight.

Well, the first day back on P1 went well - almost feels like "home" Had grilled chicken and roasted veggies for supper, yum! Still tossing around the idea of changing my goal weight but I think I'll wait until I get closer to goal.

Happy Wednesday!
Jo

Find pictures of Karen Carpenter who died of anorexic and the likeness is scary. Hopefully she did this for the money and competition and will establish a better routine.

I am so ready for spring. Was -14F at my house this am, not including wind chill. We have had snow every day this week. The problem is March is historically our snowiest month and we can get snow into April and sometimes May.

Today is weigh in day. I am hoping for a "whoosh" as I stayed EXACTLY the same last week (no change in weight or measurements). Oh well, what ever it is, I will accept it and move on. It will come off when it wants to. All I can do is be "faithful" to the plan.

Ruth Ann isn't it your weigh in day today too? (I remember last week we both weighed in on the same day). I know you were hoping for a whoosh at your next WI too as you stayed the same as well. Here's hoping we both get a big whoosh.

I just read this article this morning and thought it was interesting for those who have hunger while on IP (who doesn't, occasionally). We do get one cup of coffee, but I think this could be added to any number of puddings or shakes as well. It might take a while, though, to build up to half a teaspoon!

Cinnamon "is one of those powerhouse spices every registered dietician tries to work into her diet. Research shows that just half a teaspoon a day can help regulate blood sugar—and when our blood sugar drops, we feel hungry, so cinnamon can curb your appetite. I add a teaspoon to my coffee beans before I grind them; it infuses my coffee with flavor and health benefits." —Jennifer McDaniel, a registered dietitian nutritionist in St. Louis and an Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics spokesperson

Morning,

Another big snow fall here. I'm home with my son who has the flu, so far everyone in the family has had it but me. Fingers crossed I don't get it.

Feeling very hunger this morning, going to start drinking my water and see if that helps. Working outside the home certainly is a distraction from the kitchen.
