I slipped a little this weekend (nothing horrible), but I'm back on the horse again today and ready to go another week of good eatting.

Today's Menu
Breakfast - 1 cup Cinnamon Toast Crunch w/ Skim Milk
Lunch - 1 Egg salad sandwich

Dinner tonight is going to be left overs, so probably some Mahi Mahi w/ a salad & light dressing.

Have a great week everyone!

Hello people! I am back from a great vacation - great on the mountains, sea, sunshine front, a disaster on the healthy eating front......something got to me, and I managed to put on 8 lbs in 9 days.......It is a bit annoying to have put back on everything I lost, plus a bit more, in the month before I went away - and I am surprised I gained that much - but in a way it is a good lesson to realise how fast it can come back on, and the most important thing is that I am getting right back on that track!

Anyway, I have put that behind me now, and am back on the healthy lifestyle as of yesterday. Here is what I ate yesterday:

Porridge, coffee
Chicken, veg, bbq sauce, rice (ate out - only had a bit of the rice, and avoided most of the sauce)
Smoked salmon and salad sandwich

30 min walk

Well I ended up with a real low calorie day yesterday. They never called me into the plant until this morning so no late night snack. Most likely would have been unhealthy anyway. Man I hate mornings. I would hate to be back on day shift.

I haven't been doing too well, my "day off" Saturday turned into 3 days. I was sick Sunday with my tooth (which was killing me) and ate to make up for it, which was really hard to do since I couldn't chew, but I managed just fine. Then yesterday, I went back to the dentist whose fixed the problem and I just kept eating!

Actually, I this is going to sound odd, but last Friday, I bought a dress for this museum benefit that I have tomorrow, it was black, short, and low cut. If I cover my arms, I looked good in it, but something about that dress has been sitting in the back of my mind while I'm eating, like "you won't be able to the wear the dress if you keep doing this...". Maybe I'm not ready to wear such a revealing dress?

But the good news is that I'm back on plan today and I'm staying there...

I feel your pain, Artist, but you have to know that 8lbs. in 9 days isn't all fat and that you'll be expelling quite a bit of water over the next little while. On the other hand, that weight you lost during a month of truly watching what you eat and exercising WAS fat!

You're right back on track now and soon all you'll remember from your lovely trip is the fun and scenery because the extra weight will be GONE!

Glad you had a wonderful time ... any pictures?

S/C/G: 324 highest known/on hold/150

Height: 5' 5"


Did some cooking/measuring/preparing of meals this past weekend to use throughout the week as healthier alternatives to what I have been eating lately (no more Chef Boyardee mac n' cheese--even if it is only 190 calories!). I bought a TON of little Gladware containers and made 8 meals of chicken teriyaki stir-fry with brown rice (which I put in the freezer to use as frozen meals whenever I need them) and 6 meals of wheat rigatoni with 3-cheese tomato sauce and parmesan cheese (which I put in the fridge--for some reason, I dont think these would freeze and reheat quite as well as the stir-fry). So now I have a freezer and fridge full of HEALTHY meals that require no further preparation other than a minute or two in the microwave I think next weekend, I will make a bunch of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to have on hand also (I LOVE pb&J! of course, it's 1 tblsp reduced-fat Skippy, 1 tblsp strawberry jam, and 2 slice of Wonder Light bread for a total of about 220 calories per sandwich). I'm so motivated this week for some reason--I'm not gonna question it!

Today's eats:
Breakfast: Honey Bunches of Oats with skim milk (at least I finally got away from the Cocoa Puffs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch!)
Snacks: string cheese
fruit salad (fresh watermelon, grapes, kiwi, and strawberries that I cut up this weekend--YUM!)
Lunch: Chicken teriyaki stir-fry (chicken, brown rice, sugar snap peas, corn, brocolli, a little red pepper, and teriyaki sauce)
Snack: fat-free, no sugar added strawberry-banana yogurt
Dinner: wheat rigatoni with tomato sauce
Snack: apple
Grand total of approximately 1500 calories for the day, plus I'm actually starting to eat some vegetables (those of you who have read my whining about veggies know that I pretty much HATE all of them, so this is a big step for me )

Howie - you are just a few hours away from me right now!!!

Jill - Great job on preparing those meals. Sometimes it's hard to accept that we really shouldn't be eating the stuff that isn't all that healthy even if it is lower in cals.

Artist - It happens. What's important is that your back!!!

BethC - Glad your tooth is better. You ARE ready to wear that dress!! Look how far you've come!!! You go Girl!!!

I lost 1.4 lbs last week. Which considering I ate ALL my flex points and didn't exercise is pretty good. I keep saying that I need to get back to exercise and I really do if I want to turn up the heat on this weight loss.

Day 27 ON PLAN
5 - Mint Zone Perfect Bar
7 - Subway Turkey Ham
2 - Subway Baked Chips
3 - McDonald's Ice cream Cone
7 - Pulled Pork Sandwich (no Webber Grill, but it'll do)
4 - 6 oz. oven french fries
3 - 1/2 cup light ice cream
1 - 1/2 cup skim milk
32 - TOTAL

Tonight is Bunko! Making me a little nervous. She is having Italina beef, chips, pasta salad, cherry cheesecake and carmel brownies and of course munchies on the table as we play. I won't be getting there until late, so less time to munch. I brought an apple. I'll have 1 Italin beef with my apple and 1 brownie. That's it. Right now the daily grind is pretty easy, it's "events" like this that are hard.
