Default November 1st

B: 1/2 c. cottage cheese, 1 apple
L: tossed salad w/romaine, tomatoes, grilled chicken, fat free Italian dressing
s: yogurt
D: extra-lean ground beef cooked w/mushrooms, onions, garlic, spinach and egg whites (kinda like a beef and veggie omelet) and a baked sweet potato

Planned snack for tonight is a sugar-free pudding cup

What I didn't eat today - not even one bite! - was any of the donuts, leftover Halloween candy, coconut cake, potato chips or tortilla chips that were in the kitchen at work! And I have to walk past the kitchen to get to my printer, the copier and the ladies room, so I have to see this stuff several times a day! I didn't want to have to write any of that down for everyone to see. Being held accountable does help.

Thanks It's really silly that I am so fat because I LOVE healthy food! However, I also love to cook and eat, so as long as I cut out the fats/salt/sugar and avoid emotional eating (that's a tall order ) I am guaranteed success!

Mandy, I noticed that you have planned out a much healthier day today-keep up the good work! Also, how did you create your sig? I LOVE it and want one like that

Default Hi everyone!!!!

You are welcome EllyMay, well all need those words to keep us motivated.

Yogini, I feel that its how much you eat and the exercise you get, healthy or not. I eat rather healthy, never one for junk food and things like that and I exercised all the time and i still was 60 lbs overweight. I came to realize that it was the amount of food I was taking in. As soon as I started Sept 1st watching my calories which automatically cuts the portion sizes, I started to lose. You seem to be doing a great job and are very possitive, keep it up!!!!!

Mandy, way to go on a healthier meal plan for the day......

OK here it is:

B: eggbeaters, 1/2 c oatmeal, 1 oz lean ham 290 cal
S: 1 oz turkey, 1/2 c peaches 150 cal
L: chicken soup, w/ff saltines, 1 oz ham 280 cal
S: slim fast oatmeal bar 150 cal
D: 1 1/2 c. cajun red beans and rice w/ 1/2 c. ground lean beef mixed in,
1 c. green beans, cucumber 415 cal.

Total calories= 1285

Might have a snack, but maybe not. Will keep it to about 100 cal if I do.

KEEP IT GOING LADIES>>>>> WE ARE DOING GREAT!!!!!!!!!!
