WAW...good for you! What a willpower! Two years ago when I was counting calories and lost 10 lb , I was going to gym 3 times/week and run 3 miles on treadmill! Now days I don't want to even think about it...that is laziness maybe its Canadian winter, so much snow, dark and cold, depressing

And evenings is when I straggle the most, to make dinner for myself separate from my family and calculate calories....and all that after work when I am tired and hungry.

How do you manage dinners?
Hi Onthedietagain

Red wine is a must I have wine every night, well, except now my 2 fasting days, I can't afford the calories. I find it not only tastes awesome, which boosts my mood, it really helps me digest and relax for the evening. I just have to be careful not to go over my limit. I used to eat a lot of frozen dinners, mainly out of convenience. But the sodium content in most of them is through the roof. And I don't find there is enough food! One of those little Lean Cuisine raviolis...I could eat 4 of those lol...For lunch, maybe, but I don't find they have enough veggies either, and I'm so picky with frozen veggies.

For dinners, I plan like heck. My bf and I are on a budget that we mainly stick to, so I shop based on what's on sale. I have tons of recipes bookmarked and printed out. On Tuesdays I get all the flyers for Thursdays, so if chicken is cheap, we eat lots of chicken dinners, pork, beef, etc....I take a few hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to plan one week's worth of lunches and dinners, and we mostly stick to it. I'm so organized, I even use google calendar to remind me what time I need to start dinner, what to take out of the freezer for tomorrow, what last minute things I'll need to buy etc...it's the only way I can manage to eat a healthy lifestyle. If I'm not prepared, we risk ordering in or going out for poutine. So far this is working well for us, and we eat very well too!

And don't discount the winters for laziness. It's hard for me to even want to go out and clear off the car today. But if I don't do it today, I'll have to do it before I head to the gym tomorrow and it'll tire me out. We're getting a lot of snow today. How about doing some workouts at home, there's so much on You Tube now. I've mentioned often that I do yoga 3x a week. I found everything online. It's not heavy cardio or anything, but it's great for flexibility and some of the movements work the muscles.

Certainly fasting and yoga are beneficial for losing weight, but going on the path of sports is also amazing and favorable. It not only reduces weight but also tones up the body which is a complimentary offer. I realized this fact after watching its valuable affectivity on my body. I got this piece of advice from sportenenafvallen.net

Today is fast day #2 of this week My bf and I are upping the calories though, to 800 instead of 500 for me, and 600 for him. I've been feeling a little woozy and he's hungry. So we're okay with that. I did my hour of yoga this morning and I feel good! My bf noticed that my biceps and triceps are starting to show in my movements, he said it was sexy, feels good

I guess I am alone :-(
138.5 this am.
Since I am using my friends scale, I am not sure if this is a new low for me. It would be great if it was.
I am just curious if I maintained my weight loss during my vacation.

Hi Sum38-

You're not alone! I am trying to slowly work my way down to the low 130's but I have no real hope of actually saying goodbye to them. So, I'm not exactly eligible for this thread But I wanted to tell you congrats and great job - it feels good to see those new digits on the scale! It doesn't matter whose scale you are weighing on - you have your momentum and that is what matters.

You definitely qualify for this thread Jay-Z.
I stayed at a hotel last night, so no weigh in for me.

Nice to have company here. :-)

Where are you Chardonnay? I miss you!

138 pounds per my own scale. I officially lost 2 pounds on my vacation; not too shabby!
