Sept 15
B= 2 c milk, vits, banana
L= Old Venice's Pasta Primavera, 2 breadsticks
S= croutons, 2 cookies
D= Almond chicken, steamed Broc
S= choc muffin
E= none

sorry I didn't checkin yesterday. No workout. I did go to Bible study, led my first group as a sub {went well} and afterwards had lunch with my Mom who came for the last part of the study. Hubby and I did some shopping last night. I bought a new New Balance HRM watch on clearance at Target for $17! Its slimmer than the old making it more comfortable to wear and it has more features! I"m also having trouble finding canned pumpkin to make more muffins. I keep hearing that its 'seasonal', I can get 'organic' at Target but I think Libby's is better. I may have to buy a few cases this autumn and store them in the garage to use year round!

patch- the markets here never have pumpkin all year round, I think it is seasonal. I eat alot of Libby's pure pumpkin from Oct. thru Jan. I stock up when it comes out, I still have a can left from last year. LOL

I started getting sick last night, a cold & achy all over. Not so achy today, but feel like crap. Took my walk anyway, just a slower pace. I read exercise boosts the immune system, so I was hoping it would help. Made sure to eat lots of fruit today, to get my vitamin C. I have no appetite, but the fruit made me feel better. Going to bed early tonight!

Hi all,
Sorry i've been absent this summer but have been under incredible work load. (had 2 months to completely put a 400 million dollar company on it's own 2 feet after being carved out of mother ship - new financial systems new hr systems completely new infrastructure spent August digging out and starting to see the light..)

So far i'm doing ok on weight loss stuck for a few weeks now but that too hopefully will change again - or i'll have to lower caloric intake again.. ugh...

Hope everyone is well - missed you guys and the support!

C.

sillycat, glad you could dig yourself out and checkin with us. Good to hear from you

FL, I guess I never paid much attention to canned pumpkin before, I usually only made pumpkin pies in the fall.

Kay, good job on the exercise!

Hi all!

I've been away on a school trip with 146 grade 9 students since Monday; exhausted, and not even going to weigh myself until tomorrow. There were no food choices - only what was on the menu for the trip. To be honest - I'll be happy if I haven't gained!

Hope you are all well.

This is me as well. I've been reading on this site a lot since I joined. It's interesting to see all the different ways people handle their weight loss. Many ways I've tried in the past as well. Some have worked, some haven't. One thing I get from reading here, is do what works for you, and if something doesn't work, try a new way. But no matter what, don't give up. I've never counted calories before. The last few days I found out what my calorie intake should be to lose, in a healthy way. I'm finding I can't eat enough! But watching what I put in my mouth in helping... this time. So I'd like to join as well and keep myself accountable. I've always tried to do this on my own. Obviously, that doesn't work.

Yesterday:

30 wheat thins 325 (throughout the day)
salad 200
8oz tuna 360
1 1/4 cup kix 110
granola bar 100
salad 230
apple slices with FF Cool Whip - 200
2 servings of water

1525 Total

My calorie amount for the day should be around 1867 to lose 50 pounds by May 20th.

Nothing yet this morning. I've never been one to eat breakfast. It seems to make me hungrier and cause me to eat more. I'm afraid to start, even though I've read breakfast is a big thing to help.

Oh, I've always gauged by how my clothes fit. Does weighing yourself everyday help keep you track better?

Sept 18
B= 2 c mik, vits, banana
L= Jason's Deli small Pollo Mexicana Spud
D= homemade corned beef, carrots, onions, bread/butter
S+ choc muffin

Hubby spend most of Sat at the local airshow, so we packed a lot into today! My dad felt well enough to go to church, lunch, and a little shopping; when we visited today he said he's in no pain and just wants to get back to normal. Everyone at church made a big fuss over him surprised to see him recovering so quickly.

Betwixt, opinions vary. Daily weighing tends to drive my crazy because my weight fluctuates a lot during the week; I tend to weigh once a week at the most. I don't like to eat breakfast so I usually stick with milk/fruit then have an early lunch.

Sillycat, Its supposed to rain all next week here. sigh.

Heather, your trip does sound exhauting. Glad you survived.

Thank you Patchwork. I'm afraid that is what would happen to me and I would want to give up. I've never done it and I wonder if I did, I might hold myself even more accountable. I'll have to think about this one.

Today:

oatmeal 220
salad 230
shrimp 100
Special K Chips 15 - 55
special k crackers 24 - 120
salad 350
1 smores 248

Total: 1323

I didn't get in my fifth day of exercise in. I did clean a lot today so I did something.

Sept 19
B= 2 c milk, vits, banana
L= roast beef sandwich
D= Pizza Hut's pasta, mixed veggies, meatball pizza's
S= 1 choc muffin
E= 45min cardio/weights

Dinner was given to us by my parents. Someone gave them the pasta as an 'after surgery' meal but its not on Dad's scrict diet so they gave it to us. We at the pasta and the veggies, then an hour or so later were hungry again so we make the pizzas. Then we split a muffin then split another. We both have a tendancy to not eat during the day and then be insatiable at night.

We watched the movie "Grace Card", filmed here in Memphis {unlike say Memphis Beat!}. It was a very good movie; Hubby and I got a little distracted at times by the places we recognized and have been.

Betwixt, good job on the cleaning!

Congratulations Leslie,
This just goes to show how critical it is that we eat healthy and exercise. My husband has just had his cholesterol medicine increased but he has not reduced his intake of fried foods.
A lot of medicine could be reduced by simple food changes.

Step 20:
B= 2 c milk, vits, banana
L= turkey sand
D= Corned Beef, veggies, bread {judging from the amount of fat on the top of the leftover corned beef in the fridge we won't be having that again soon! yuck!}
S= choc muffin, fresh from the oven wheat bread! I added more wheat flour and its better this week!}
E= 30min treadmill
