jasmine, didnt have time to read everything, but I dont use any artificial sweeteners. Buy plain unsweetened yogurt and add all fruit jam or cinnamon and vanilla extract. cinnamon and van ext. both add sweetness without sugar. Eventually if you add less and less of the jam, your palate will adjust to less sweet. I eat plain unsweetend now straight and prefer it. Its one of the reasons I DONT use artificial crap is if you just reduce your sweet intake, you reduce your taste for sweet. I had a wheat thin the other day and I swear to god it tasted like it was dipped in honey, thats how sensitive I am now to sugar.

Oh my goodness!
I haven't posted in a couple of weeks and look what happens?! Congrats on the weight loss Jasmine and Mande! Hello to everyone else. My how times flies by.
I just stopped to say hello and I can't really stick around for long. We are heading to the coast tomorrow for a fun family weekend at the cabin. Made some FF dip to go with the veggies and baked chips for the snacks.
Also I went a month without drinking regular soda! That's quite an accomplishment for me as I used to love Coke.
Last week I ended up in the hospital with a kidney stone and then some complications. I had gained ten pounds from water retention and about fell off my feet! Anyway, it's all gone and I'm doing good.
The holiday time is a real challenge with all the snacky foods wafting near my nostrils.... Haha. But I am learning to think twice before succumbing to mindless eating.
Hope all of you are doing well. It's great to see the weight loss and there's so many new people I haven't met. Things are busy around here as we are getting ready to move out of the house. Yay! Our house is in escrow now... whew! So... I'll be popping in and out for this month but can't stay long.
Hugs to all of you and I sure miss ya!
S.

Hello Ladies!

I don't know why I have so much energy today...I think it is because I had a great workout this morning. I am just waiting for it to be 5 o'clock and then I am outta here. Not to busy this Friday...its the end of the semester and campus is slow.

Okay I am ducking behind my computer because I am one of those persons that eats the artificial sugar. That's right in alot of stuff too, from my oatmeal to my tea I drink and especially my one a day diet pepsi. It is just my one vice I cannot give up. From your article though Jasmine, I may start cutting back a bit.

Hi everyone! I went and got blood work and a chest x-ray. I feel lousy and really drained. My dh was mad because I still rode my bike last night but I just don't want to lose my momentum or break a good habit. Anyway I went pretty slow and just half a time so I was happy. Hope all of you feel better soon also.

dollypie - I'm a big artificial sugar person too so your not alone
miafluker - I'm right with you. I have a highly stressful job and put in a lot of hours. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love what I do, just sometimes I wish I wasn't responsible for so much. I have two children and three step-children and dh who I miss terribly at times, but they are really supportive.

Well Hello to all and to all a Hello!!
I have had a busy week this week. Am still off work due to foot, but am glad to have christmas with the kids. Miafluker, I too have a stressful job and feel for you and thank God that I am at home now even though its because of a foot injury. I just found out at age 36 I have osteopenia and that is most likely why I have had so many broken bones. I am now taking 1200 to 1500 mg of calcium a day. It won't rebuild the bone but keep it from getting worse. Only weight baring exercise will rebuild bone. I am trying to do that too. I have to do more research on that as well.

Looked at a beautiful house today. I wish I had a picture of it to show you. We have a video but no pictures. Don't know if we can buy it yet, but would be wonderful to have.


Stopeating-I hope all goes well and you feel better.

Dollypie-I too was one to use alot of artificial sugar until I knew that it probably wasn't that good for me. I am going to do better!!

Ennay-I feel your pain I hope you get a good sound sleep tonight. And I am going for the plain fat free yogurt. That is awesome...you know so much about healthy food...thank you for being here!!!

Hi Sugarbaby!!

Jasmine-oh my gosh, I didn't realize there was so many bad things that we are eating in our food. I started knowing about the artificial sweeteners even splenda then too much regular sugar which I just found that the light yogurt, that I loved, had 14gms in it. I knew it tasted to good to be true!! Then milk shouldn't be pasturized. I am in big touble. I remember my mom when I was younger going out to a farm to get fresh milk and it was so good!! I wonder if you can still go to a farm now to get unpasturized milk?

Canuk-it doesn't matter if it is 4 pounds or 6 pounds; the over all is 6 pounds and that in it's self is Awesome!!!

jcat-hope your kids feel better soon and hope you escape illness.

Hun.e.b.- I am so thankful to have you here also!! As for the t.v. show the biggest loser I have to know when to watch it because it sounds like fun to watch. Is it on everynight?

Martiniforme-I hope all is well!! Thank you so much with all your help on secret santa! You are doing an awesome job!!

Hi folks, how is everyone doing? It sounds like you are all pretty busy with your jobs and kids and Christmas. So far we have not gotten any decorations up, a problem with the front porch is stopping us from getting some up and getting into the attic to get it all out is another, its jam packed with everything imaginable, (daughter moved out, didn't take everything, son is on a trial basis with his girlfriend, to see if living together will work, he is funny though, he show up every 2 weeks or so and spends the night, sometimes its cause his coughing is so bad she can't sleep, or he is snoring to much, she is a police officer and takes it very seriously, which is good for us people out there, not sure how good for my son, I said to him last night when he was staying over, I can just see it, you will be married and have a couple of kids and she will still be sending you home for one reason or another. We are just waiting till after Christmas and then it is going to be, her place or ours, then we will see what she does) sorry about that, I don't know where that blab came from, it just popped out.

Well I did 25 mins. floor exercise this morning. And did the walking ab cd for 2 miles tonight, so very pleased with myself.

My daughters boyfriend is having heart problems, they were to go to Riu Ocho Rios Jamica this Sunday and he was told from the specialist yesterday now, that he can't fly. I feel so bad for them, this was there first big trip, my daughter is being a real trooper though about the trip, obviously more worried about him then anything, he is haveing an angiogram on Tues. and possibly angioplasty or stents, they are too young to be dealing with this stuff, she is only 29, he is a bit older. They unfortunately did not take out cancellation insurance though, so will lose a good chunk of money. If any of you are travelling in the near future get the ins. Anyhow she called today and asked if my husband and I would take the trip if they could get it transferred, we discussed it and though we do not have the funds to pay them now, she feels at least it would be better than losing the money they paid out, if someone could go. My son can't as he has to many meetings and is starting his holidays the 15th, so has to be around. So at the moment we are waiting to hear if they will transfer the trip to us, I have such mixed feelings, I want to be home and be with her at the hospital while she waits for her hubby while he is having the angiogram, I feel devasted for them as they were so looking forward to the trip. My daughter says she is glad it happened here, not when they were away, she is thinking of it as a blessing. I feel excited we might go, but sick for the two of them and what they are dealing with. I also am worried about trying to diet and exercise while away. I will deal with that when we hear later on today. Sorry for going on so much, I feel I just have to talk to someone and you's are always so supportive I needed to just get it all out. Please don't get me wrong I think it would be a wonderful trip and we will pay them back, not sure when or how, but when I set my mind to some things I usually accomplish them, weight seems to be my down fall though. I just feel like I'm stealing the trip from them and they were so excited, God works in mysterious ways.

I will go now, thanks for listening to me, seem's I need you guys more than I realized, with the arm thing, now this, thanks for being there and your support. Sharon

Last night I took my 12 year old to his group outing for kids with autism. It was a pizza and arcade type of place. He had a great time so I am really glad I made myself go when I wanted to go to bed. He loves to search for "treasures" on the ground and always collects "interesting" items. Last night he found 7 tokens and a quarter by diving under all the machines. Made his night! He is so incredibly cute. They served home made pizza. I was afraid I would over eat, but I had one piece and the toppings off of my son's piece. He has major eating issues associated with autism.

Older son has a wheelchair basketball tournament today three hours away. His dad is taking him. They will play all day and he will call me after each game and tell me how its going. His dad and I split the tournaments (ex) and I volunteered to give him December. Ha! Ha! Ha!

Still feeling lousy. First time I didn't exercise last night. Need to do lots of baking and shopping this weekend or I will be in major trouble. Cancelled a gathering I was suppose to go to tomorrow, just too much to do.

I managed to lose two pounds this week! It was a tough week with the holiday gatherings, and I had a few indulgences, but the last two days I didn't hit 1000 calories with this thing so it balanced out.

Thanks guys for listening to me. You are my motivation!

Canuk4- I am sorry to hear about your daughter's boyfriend. It is a blessing that they caught it early before they went away. Your daughter is right, it's better that someone use the trip than let it go all together. I hope it works out for you.

Loveandlaugh - I'm glad you have a diagnosis. Now there is a plan to get better!

Morning all! How are you all doing? I've been doing good with my exercise but just HORRIBLE with my water! I really really REALLY need to get out of food service because being around this food is messing with my diet. I have no will power.

Canuk, so sorry about his heart problems.

stopeating - good luck with getting it all done, the holidays are getting overwhelming here too.

So, I thought I'd weigh in with my opinion on the milk thing.

I do buy organic milk, yogurt and cheese whenever possible because the data from growth hormones (BGH) are substantiated. Puberty in girls is coming younger and younger and in parts of the world where BGH use is highest, puberty is younger. Average age for puberty in I think its Puerto Rico is NINE. Anyway, early puberty on its own leads to a whole host of risks.

Pasteurized on the other hand. No, I will not get raw milk for me and especially not for my family. The risks of food borne illness from raw milk are too high versus a nebulous risk that hasnt been scientifically substantiated.

I think the question really comes down to - should humans be drinking cow's milk at ALL. If you do believe that the data that he says is right on pasteuriztation, then just go dairy free.

I was dairy free for 2 years, milk free for 5, and I may have been healthier for it. Its hard to say because I never really had a period to compare where all the other choices in my life were held constant. I did lose a substantial bit of weight when I first went dairy free, and didnt feel I was eating less, but on the other hand, being dairy free removed ALL mindless eating as I had to be a food police all the time.

But clearly, humans are the only species that ever drinks milk from another species. And the only species that drinks milk past puberty. Milk is created specifically for the nourishment of baby animals, and specifically for babies of the same species. (lol, we'd be better off drinking human milk, but good god, there is so much hoo-hah over BABIES drinking human milk, cant imagine if there started to be a market for selling human milk to adults). Anyway, the nutritional needs of an infant are significantly different from those of an adult, so its questionable whether milk is GOOD for you. (may not be BAD either)

I do think the correlation between milk and ear infections is pretty strong, and removing dairy from a childs diet if they are prone to ear infections would be a good first step.

And yes, calcium citrate is more easily absorbed.

The other conundrum in the calcium debate is the recent trend to higher protein diets. The more protein you eat the more calcium you need.

Dear friends, thank-you for the support, re daughter's boyfriend and heart problems and us going on there vacation. It was confirmed this morning they will transfer the trip to us, but we both go with heavy hearts, knowing it was suppose to be there trip, no matter what assurances we are getting from them, that it is so good someone can go in there place and the money for the trip has not been thrown away. I will make this short, after my going"s
on last night. Please say a prayer his heart procedures will be successful.
Thanks Sharon

P.S. Gained 1 pound, screwed up my eating yesterday. Have done 30 mins. floor so far today. Talk to you again on the 18th, wishing everyone well!

I know if I had to switch my plane tickets, I would be happy to give them to my mother. So have fun and enjoy the trip. Maybe you can return the favor by reserving another weekend get away for them close to home or something romantic set it up for them during the same time their trip was intended. that way they can still enjoy themselves and not have to fly. Nice 3-5 star hotel and restaurant. Just a thought.

Well i did horrible on the calories today2450 or so and no exercise yet. went to the movies with husband. didn't realize regular popcorn was that filled with calories. oh well tomorrow is another day!!
