Good morning ladies. I am having a nuts week in work. I'm not getting to post much. My husband is away and I have 4 yr old twins that makes it a bit nuts at home too!!! Still holding at 215. Tomorrow is my cheat day. Im hopping for at least another 1 lb by tomorrow. I teach in an elementary school and this is the silly season for kids and staff parties and shows and all the good stuff. My food today is
BF; a chocolate protein, coffee, spinac and chia seed shake.
Lunch: Beef and bean chili with salad.
snack: hummus and carrots
dinner: baked chicken legs with veg.or a protein shake. it's a late day in work.
I use a dietimeal protein powder, I used to eat them when I was trying Ideal protein diet. I really enjoy it in the morning, it's fast and easy to drink on the go getting the kids ready for school.

Well done love2b on your gym time! I keep promising myself some workout time but I haven't fit it in yet.
Great 175 Jacqui perseverance and sticking to it, no matter what is the key to dieting. Something I'm still working on.
PNK you are doing really well, getting a handle on this diet.

Have a great day TGIF.

I am 174.5 today!

Week 19: High-179, Low 174.5
12/7: 177 Cheat Day
12/8: 179
12/9: 178
12/10: 178
12/11: 176.5
12/12: 175
12/13: 174.5

Today's meals (I'll add to it as I go):
Breakfast: 2 hard-boiled eggs, a teapot of tea, Mio water
Lunch: cottage cheese, Salmon salad mixture from yesterday, Mio water
Snack: handful of almonds, Mio water
Dinner: 9 chicken wings, water

Thanks Pixikat! I might really be past the 177 set point now! We'll see on Sunday after cheat day, lol!

Good for you on the water and gym time, Rennie! I'm having trouble just being motivated to do a Leslie Sansone indoor walking video on youtube! I'm glad to hear you are planning out your cheat day. Since you are diabetic, of course you have to be mindful about what goes into your body. I think you are being really smart. As I'm sure you know, diabetics really can eat anything but in moderation. My son is a type 1 diabetic and you should have seen how he used to eat at Thanksgiving! He'd eat a whole pumpkin pie and half of another one! Now he has a slice. He can have his favorite dessert, but in moderation. I'm glad you are being careful!

TwoTots, great job maintaining 215, especially during a stressful week!! I do hope the scale moves down a little more for you by tomorrow. : And I hope things start to slow down for you soon! Twins and an elementary school teacher, wow!!

Thanks Jacqui we were posting at the same time. Congratulations on 174.5 oh my goodness I can't wait I can get on the treadmill eveyday with no problem. It's my praise and worship time Your son could teach us grow-ups a thing or two about moderation good for him. I'm pretty good but I have my days when I know I've over done it. I try not to let it be more than a day or two though. So far so good since Thanksgiving has passed.

Thanks TwoTots that the scale moves for you soon

I weighed in at 176.8 this morning not what I wanted to see after sweating buckets last evening but ok

Yesterday's meals

B ~ chili, shredded fiesta blend cheese, green tea
L ~ chicken salad, Colby Jack cheese stick, water
D ~ ham, Cole Slaw, green tea water

Calories a little low but I don't go to the bathroom regularly so I think that's why I get full so easily, plus I got all of my water in plus some

Went to the gym burned 602 calories on the treadmill

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Cheat Day

175 is really really hiding from me. Weigh in this morning 176.2.

B ~ 1 egg, with shredded cheddar, pico de Gallo, 2 strips of bacon, a biscuit, grits, green tea and water

Yay on another drop, Rennie!

To give y'all an idea of what my cheat meals are like, I'll go ahead and post today's:

Breakfast: 2 pkgs of Quaker Oats Cinnamon and Spice Instant Oatmeal made with water (because I like it with water better than with milk), a boiled egg with hot pepper jelly, Mio water
Noon Snack: many York Peppermint Patty Pieces (they're like mint M&M's--I absolutely love mint chocolate!) a Diet Dr. Pepper
2:30 Lunch: a small square of pepperoni pizza (because I ate too much mint chocolate and wasn't hungry!), Mio water
Dinner: chicken alfredo (it's in the oven now!), a teapot of green tea, Mio water
Late-night snack: (I may be too full for anything but we'll see!)

Well, changed my dinner menu a bit! As I was taking the chicken alfredo out of the oven, it slipped out of my hands and splatted on the floor! My hubby and I ended up going to a local Italian place and I ordered chicken alfredo and got a garden salad, garlic bread, and a root beer with it. Oh, but my body didn't cue me in soon enough that I was full, and although I ate only half of my chicken alfredo and garlic bread, I am stuffed and uncomfortable right now. Suffice it to say, I won't be having a late-night snack, lol!

Rennie, yes, I'm okay. Thank you for asking! It didn't get me, but what a mess I had to clean up. My dog happily pitched in, lol! My dear hubby saw how upset I was that dinner was ruined and, even worse, my cheat day dinner was ruined, and he came and wrapped his arms around me as I was down on the floor wiping up the mess and said we'd go to the Italian place so I could get some chicken alfredo. (He's a keeper!)

for Jacqui's husband that is so romantic My cousin and her husband have date night and I told them to put a buzz in my husbands ear to let him know this is how you keep the romance going. Grant it they only have one child and we still have four at home but hey that's all the more reason we should get out of here
