morning everyone! I'm down like .6 from yesterday. This is very slow going, but if I'm to keep it off it has to be this way. Before, I would do SBD phase one and lose quickly, but in reality I'm knowing that was because I literally ate ZERO rice, pasta, bread, potatoes...things like that. And I love those things too much to give them up forever. I also think the absence of those things resulted in a LOT of water weight loss. So I want to make the losses stick from now on.

B - skipping...not really up for it, I was super busy when I got here to work and I'm going to lunch in a little over an hour so it can wait. Going out for PHO! And looking forward to some Vietnamese spring rolls!!!!

School tonight will cause me to eat something quickly...so maybe turkey burger or salmon patty (no bread) topped with lite Jarlsberg and zoodles! So far it'a all I've planned.

Last night DH and I did our 6 sets of squats. I did 20, 20, 17, 17, 20, and 15...a total of 109 squats! Legs aren't even that sore, when in the beginning I could barely move afterwards! Legs getting back in shape

its another busy day...when isn't it? lol....i had time to get to the gym earlier this morning than usual...then i went to a meeting which involved walking 5 minutes up steep hills to get there (eek!) and then back afterwards to my car...there is virtually NO parking in the downtown area EVER *sigh*....at the meeting i had a good handful of corn tortilla chips and salsa, a small bowl of soup (not sure what kind, sort of like chili maybe?) and a few bites of chocolate and a cup of pear juice...i REALLY refrained from eating more than that although i REALLY wanted to lol...i wasn't full during the meeting but afterwards, after walking all the way back to my car, i got REALLY full...it was weird...i had my usual cup of coffee back at work and still feel awfully full....i work all afternoon now and then i have a brief meeting after work and then i'm done

my husband said "stop joining more committees!" LOL in a joking way because i'm always going from one thing to the next....my meeting this morning was the steering committee for a state education conference happening next month and my meeting tonight is because i serve on the governing board (not the right words but similar) of the elementary school that i work at

Day turned out pretty good, I think it's going to rake me another week to recover from the Super Bowl of tostitos scoops

Ended up having a great salad DH made, have to figure out how to log it in MFP. Then an orange for a snack, got in my exercises, but am now a little awake because I just got done, then drank 16 oz. of water so I'll be up pretty soon after going to bed...well tomorrow's my day off so it'll work out.

I got to work, but didn't walk, so did 45 on the bike instead of 30, and did shovel snow in the morning, can't forget that

Syckgirlsfv I never heard of PHO until I was in Hartford, didn't get to go, but sounded interesting, they were going for lunch the day I was leaving. Next time.

Best to all

Hey guys, even though I've been eating pretty badly and not counting, I'm ready to get back on board!

I ate today:
Graham cracker
6 cookies (I know)
2 servings of Doritos and spinach dip
5 chicken wings
Large portion of fries (they were baked, though!)

I have been sticking with exercising at a very basic level in the morning. I've definitely noticed its easier to do more crunches. I'm not noticing any upper body strength increase yet, however. The planks seem just as hard as before. The soreness of my legs has eased up some, though.

Hi Everyone!

This will be a quick post since we just got home from the concert. We went to see Merle Haggard. It was a fun concert. There were people there from all ages. It was wonderful seeing young people enjoy the concert. I grew up listening to a huge variety of music, so I enjoy it all. We didn't get to leave work early like we had planned. In fact we left late. We wanted to get to the concert on time so we were not able to eat dinner before. We ate something at the concert and ate dinner after. I did the best I could to keep things in moderation.

I feel like swapping the sugar snap peas this week for the yogurt has went really well. I haven't had issues with the munchies or getting hungry during the day. I seem to get sugar craving with yogurt. Maybe it just a mental thing, I don't know. I plan on making this a permanent change.

Total Approx 1450 Calories +

Breakfast (395 Calories + coffee)

Lunch (375 Calories)

3 Slices Hormel Natural Choice Deli Turkey 60 calories
Honey mustard/Lettuce 25 calories
Raw Sugar Snap Peas 90 calories
1 Apple 100 calories

Dinner (680 Calories) <-- This was a huge success for me, sugar/carbs was higher but still a success!
Shared a plain pretzel without salt w/DH 150 calories
Shared a cookie 200 calories
this is a new item at Cracker Barrel and listed as a healthy option -> Pecan Crusted Catfish w/steamed veggies 280 calories

Hi everyone!

I haven`t posted for a few days, because my weight spiked, and I was eating well, and working out lots, but I thought, no one would believe that I was. I was thinking that I was kidding myself. Anyhow, the water weight has finished coming off today, and I`m down to 154.6. That`s about 5 and a half pounds since Jan. 6. Not huge amounts, but heading the right direction. I think the gain was because I had increased the length and intensity of my workouts early last week.

IanG, I understand how you feel when the weight keeps coming on, and you`re doing all you know how. I hope the new plan works.

Diana: Glad you enjoyed the concert. We`ve got a Merle Haggard CD in the truck that dh just loves to play.

I`ll check back in later. Have a great, on-plan day, everyone!

Last night I must have had a major whoosh Every hour I woke up for the bath room. Hard to believe that with only one kidney I can produce that much liquid. My weigh in day is Monday and I resisted a strong urge to weigh this morning. I have a good feeling about my Monday weigh in, I hope I am not disappointed

I continue to experiment with Volumetrics. For yesterday's dinner I took 6 oz of Dreamfields Elbow pasta and added a can of Del Monte no salt added Stewed Tomatoes, a can of Giorgio no salt added mushrooms, 4 fresh jalapeno peppers chopped, Alsosalt salt substitute and pepper. A 2 cup serving calculated out to 247 calories. It tasted really good but it can be improved, The next time I make this I will add garlic powder, oregano and Italian seasonings. This had a lot of eye appeal with the white pasta, red tomatoes and green peppers. I like spicy foods and this was quite spicy mostly because I do not remove the seeds from the jalapeno peppers. The seeds have most of the heat, and I do not cook them as I like the crunch. (I use Dreamfields pasta because it only has 5g digestible carbs per serving)

I ate 3 servings (6 cups of this Volumetrics Pasta) and ended the day at 1,646 which was under my goal of 1,730 My sodium was especially good as my final amount was 743 grams, way under my 2,300 goal. My other meals yesterday were:

Breakfast
Sweet 'n Low - Artificial Sweetner, 1 pkt.
General Mills Cereal - Fiber One Original, 1 cup
Skim Milk (Fat Free) - Skim Milk, 3/4 cup
One Banana - Medium Size (6.5oz),

Lunch
Broiled Filet Mignon, 6.9 oz
Mashed Potatoes, Skim Milk, No Butter or Salt, 1/2 cup
Green String Beans Steamed , 1/2 cup (125g)
