Thought I'd get in a post before I have to go.
Nieces gave me no trouble today, thank goodness. Barfing Bailey didn't even get me today, oh yes, she barfed, but I was totally protected! My DM said she was going to walk in their house one day donning a rain poncho! LOL!
Well, last night went as I figured it would! We went to Carrabas and first was the calimari-delicious, but of course, not OP. Had the salad with a little of the dressing (always on the side so I can dip my fork) and then the eggplant (I'll probably never get anything else, I'm a creature of habit). Of course, the Tiramisu was ordered and I pigged. Granted, ELI had a bite or two, but Denise (his DD) and I ate the rest. Well, it's not enough for me to stop there, if you haven't figured me out by now, noooo
I kept going-polished off a half of a half-gallon of ice cream, some candy a couple cookies. Hmmmm, I think that was it. And then I was done. Well, even though I went through all that and eating all that crap after being 100% for 2 1/2 weeks I actually feel I had some sort of "break through" as I just felt, for the first time, it was done and it was over with and that I wouldn't continue the next day, which I didn't/haven't. Right back on track. Usually, it goes for a few days, but not this time.
BUT, the scale is also UP!!!! Pisses me off, but hey, if you play with fire, you're bound to get burned. Not sure if it's from a few hours of eating or being right smack dab in mid-cycle, day 14 today. Guess I'll just take a "weight and see attitude".
Anyhow, going to get a few replies in before it gets too late...
TRANQUIL, what's the deal with TOM showing up so early? Hope it's just a fluke and doesn't happen again.
GATOR, thanks for letting us know what SUZANNE said in response to the chat room. I guess I'll just have to set up a chat room come Tuesday. It's not something I can do ahead of time, though, there may be a site that has chat rooms that may allow us to make our own-will have to look in to this!
TONI, CONGRATS on your pound loss this week AND for the good job you continue to do on the treadmill
Nothing wrong with slow. These days we want EVERYTHING now. Guess that's why it's so hard to find people patient about anything they have to wait for. Of course, I'm as guilty as the next, but as the saying goes "all good things come to those who wait!"
MONET, sweet potato pie, at McD's? Either that'something just up your way, or I'm truly out of touch from the fast food joints! I've never heard of that, but then again, I don't go to those places
As you said, no more excuses-keep thsoe 11lbs at bay and work on the next pound, and so on. Just think what you can accomplish before we see you in Orlando - BTW, how much have you lost since I saw you???
MERCY, CONGRATS on your great loss this week, that's awesome! We miss you too, but come to the board when you can, we all understand it's harder for some to get on than it is for others, esp. with sick kids in the house!! Hope their better now
LDBLOND, hope all goes well with the new toofers! I like when you look at the positive-so much more positive than negative and *****ing and moaning about negatives NEVER does any good
MELF, will be happy to try and help find a fare, you just give me some ideas of where you can fly out from. Drive safely!
JACKK, wish I had read your post BEFORE going to Carrabas! Yes, I could of done fine, but as you probably read above, I didn't
HEART, sorry to hear about the ordeal at the WIC office. My sister gets WIC too and hates having to go there. In fact, that's why I had to babysit for the 2 youngest today, so she could get renewed. Don't worry about those 4lbs, just get back on track and they'll disappear quickly.
DENISE, glad to hear you're feeling better! Yes, it is a gorgeous day here today! I love it. Just didn't like the wind this morning, felt like I was running against a brick wall at times. Rollerblading? Wow, I can't even stand up on those things. If you'll be home tonight, can try you after Survivor-LMK (let me know). As MONET mentioned, the agave is great as a substitute to make a pecan pie. I know I have a recipe somewhere...will have to see if I can find it. As for the WW pasta, it should be made from stone ground ww. Don't have my book handy, but I think the other gals were able to fill in the blanks. It's also true about the extrusion of pasta being lower GI.
GRACIOUS, you can keep the snow, but send a little more cooler weather our way, that, I'll take. You are right about the extrudd pasta, I think the info is on the FOOD INFORMATION BOARD about that.
ZANNE, good going on the swimming, CONGRATS! Geez, CONGRATS for getting in a bathing suit in public, that's something I'll never see happen in this lifetime, that's for sure! Xmas baking, now? Boy, between GRACIOUS getting her shopping done and you doing baking now, you put as all to shame!
TRISH, CONGRATS on this weeks loss-awesome! Don't worry about the eating, as you see from the above, I too was up after eating off plan last night, nothing you can do except get right back on track. Whatever got into me and I seemed to have not kept it to myself and it got a hold of you-hopefully, after it was done with you you got rid of it for good!!!! I sure as heck don't want it back!
MUSIC, sorry to hear about the car. Guess you won't be doing any abulance chasing in the future
Thank goodness she has insurance to pay, but what a pain to have to go through all this! And thank goodness the kids didn't get hurt, that's more important than anything!
I have not been on Atkins and switched over to SB, but many others on the board have and will give you their personal opinions. I, on the other hand, can tell you your Dr. is a smart cookie. Many Dr.'s recommend this WOE to their patients and with good reason, it not only works, but it's a very healthy and easy WOE to follow and one you can do indefinitely. Don't be afraid to ask questions, we're all more than happy to help answer any questions you may have
FILLISE, glad it's all over for you, now would you try to slow down a bit?!? Hey, any way you can come in for the Orlando get together in January-you NEED a vacation! LMK if you can! Congrats on 4 of your 5 candidates winning!
Hello to everyone else!!
Time for me to go get the kids from school. Will check in later if
possible, otherwise, tomorrow.
Have a great day!
SB since 3/22/00
Reached goal 6/10/01
