Theresa... I often use smaller plates to appease my "Eyes bigger than my stomach" attitude. It does work!
Angie...Your self diagnosis about getting more water is a good place to start. Also getting more fiber will move your scale, You all probably get sick of hearing me preach about the benefits of fiber. But it sure works for me, last week I started eating Fiber One two or 3 times a day and I've dropped 2 pounds this week. (All the snow shoveling helped too)
Allison... Thanks alot, you added $100.00 to my Visa card this morning! My old Salter scale that I'm so fond of doesn't keep a running total of the foods you eat daily. I googled the model you purchased and was instantly jealous. I found a web site that had Free shipping, ordered it and can't wait to use it. I probably won't use the Fitday anymore, I'll have to wait and see. How you doing with yours? If you find some really good TVP recipes, please share.
Susan... Same goes for you about good TVP recipes, I guess I forget to use it because we always have so much Elk meat on hand.
Claudia... You made some excellent healthy changes to your lasagna recipe, all this talk about lasagna is making me hungry. Your new work-out schedule is very ambitious, just don't get burned out.
Rai... 1269 calories great! Fiber good too, I heard on the radio the other day that most Americans don't get enough fiber in.

Where did you find that information, I was asking about that a couple of months ago and don't remember getting a answer.
Cats Tongue...I love the quote you have at the bottom of your posts, funny! What does UBust mean?
Melissa... Great calores for you too (1145)considering the temptation of the dinning hall. Way to go!
Aphil... Do you have a large area to work with at your new home? I would have a blast landscaping at your home. We have 1 and 1/4 acres to work with at our house so we put in many fruit trees besides all the different flower beds. I have a huge shade flower garden just to the right of our free standing deck and we spend more time out there than on the deck. Do you have mature trees to work with?
Hi Athenac, Walking and anyone I missed. It hard to keep up with everyone so if I missed grilling you don't get offended.
Time to get my butt in gear for the day, see ya

Default Newbie, newbie here!!!

Good morning ladies ...

I will join you on your chat thread if I may. I have been up and down with my weight since my teens. Am in my early sixties, and my most recent successful run was 45 lbs., but can't seem to keep it off.

I like walking, water aerobics and am trying to make myself start on the weight machines!!!! I am retired and able to travel pretty frequently so that's a problem for me ... have that old *if I'm traveling, I MUST overeat* disease. I am 5' 9", and try to stay at about 1500 calories. Since Spring has almost sprung, I will try for some exercise everyday that I can. I got in a long walk yesterday, and plan another today. Monday will be my weigh-in day.

I will get to know you ladies better as time passes, I hope. I can't read all the previous posts at the moment, but will gradually catch up.

You girls have a great day!

Babs

Good morning everyone.

I have had 3 days in a row now of off track eating. I don't like it. It started off with the holiday of Purim and now since I am left with all this garbage in my house it has continued. I have not had 3 bad days in a row of eating in over 6 months. I don't like it. I wasn't terrible, but I was untrackable. Maybe 1400 calories, maybe 1600, maybe 1800? I just don't know. I HATE not knowing. 2 bites, here 3 bites there. I have no idea what I consumed yesterday. I skipped dinner because of it and exercised like mad crazy. I am sore today. I am not happy. My daughter is going away with school tomorrow for the weekend and I am in the middle of making oatmeal cookies. I have already had some dough and now I just ate a cookie. What the heck is going on with me? What has happened to girl who for 6 months has had so much control? Where is she and how do I get her back?

rockinrobin ...

Boy, do I know how you feel! In your situation, I would toss out all the food that I can't control myself with IF I didn't have someone to pass it on to. No matter what it is, it's better in the garbage than on our hips. I know it's so hard to do ... But I manage to do it when I'm really serious about my eating which I plan to be AGAIN (starting yesterday.) Good luck, and know you're not alone!

Bobbo, I still have a question about the Salter scale. Does it automatically rezeros each time you remove the plate (or whatever you are putting on it)? I want a scale that remembers the point where I zeroed it. I gave an example earlier of what I mean.
Rai... my Salter automatically re-zero's when I take the plate off. I don't know about the new one I just ordered this morning, ask Allison

Babs!


Sloppy Joes
2 cups TVP granules with 1-1/3 cup hot water To hydrate , pour the hot water over the granules, cover and let sit while preparing the below ingredients.

1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
6 oz. can tomato paste
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. oregano
1/4 cup ketchup (I omit this)
1/4 tsp. cayenne
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp. honey (optional) I also omit this, if you want to cut the acid in the tomatoes, use a little Splenda)

Heat skillet, add the oil, and when hot saute quickly the onions, peppers, garlic and TVP. Mix the tomato paste with the water and seasonings and stir into the pan. Bring to a boil, taste and add salt if desired. This doesn't take long, sometimes I don't boil it because I don't like it so dry. In the summer I add shredded zucchini to this to make it even lower in calories.

Bobbi, thanks for the welcome. I love the Maxine quote at the bottom of your post ... hilarious! You must be Vegetarian, considering the recipe you just posted. Thanks ... I may try that one.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement. I've made a HUGE effort to drink more water the past couple days and I already feel way less bloaty, so hopefully I'm just retaining water weight and that's all...I would like to think I wouldn't have gained with eating only 1200-1500 calories and exercising every day, but who knows?

I've been working on upping my fiber and started supplementing with Benefiber to help throughout the day.

Here's something interesting you all might want to know. I visited a nutritionist yesterday because I've been having some digestion issues and I was talking to him about weight loss, colon cleansing and so on. He shared with me that in order to make weight loss more effective that it helps to cleanse the liver and colon because when those things are workin at optimum levels, then the fat is broken down and excreted more easily. He suggested an all natural liver cleanser that was a cup of grated fresh beets, a coupls tsp of pure olive oil and a couple tsp of fresh lemon juice. He said to eat a heaping tspfull before each meal and then a golf ball size amount once a day for a couple weeks. He said there's something in it that is a natural detoxifier and cleanser and will help the liver function better to clear out fat better...

Has anyone heard that before? I thought it might be worth a shot....

Hello everyone. I haven't posted well since last month. I have been keeping on track with my eating. Only a few bad things have entered my mouth, lol. But I really need to get back on the exercise thing. I just wish that Spring would get here, I am sick of the snow. I am looking forward to being able to get out and bike with my kids.

Good Afternoon all!

Yesterday was a good day, although I was a little low on calories, 1212. I don't think I'm bringing enough food with me when I go to school. I'm usually there from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Angielynne: I've never heard of that kind of "cleanser" before, but there are so many of them out there. I know this doesn't help, but I'm sure there is someone on here is a lot more knowledgeable about it.

Have a good day everyone!

Robin, One thing that helps me stay focus is by taking pictures...I know, but it has really been working for me. I took a picture in a bikini (front, side and back angles) and I taped on a wall in my apartment. I walk through the hallway everyday, so I have to look at the picture. Whenever I get tempted throughout the day, I just think about that picture.....Guess what? The cookie is no longer so tempting (at least not to me).

What's everyone's thoughts here on popcorn. DH and I are having a disagreement and I'm hoping someone can shed some light on it for me. He says it's a low cal filling snack...I don't know what I think.

The box I have says that 1 cup popped is a serving at 40 cal's. There are 3 servings per bag making a bag popped about 120 cal's give or take.

So at that..I would say it's a low cal filling snack..but won't the salt make you retain TONS of water and it's also almost all fat cals?

Does anyone else here use popcorn as a snack?

Angielynne, popcorn is a great snack compared to chips and lots of other snacky foods BUT not if you pour butter on it. Plain air-popped corn is touted as a great low-cal snack except I can't eat it that way! NOW, the *light* popcorns are great as they pop in a small amount of fat. Popcorn is lots of GOOD fiber ... the only fat cals. are what you ADD to it. The nutrition panel on the side of popcorn boxes is made to be as confusing as can be. I think you'll find a cup is x-number of calories but then a serving is 4 cups (3 servings per bag); hence, if a cup is 40 cals., then a serving is 4 x that = 160. Buy the *light* snack bags or eat half a regular bag. That's good for you as long as you don't overdo it; just fit it into your daily calories. Hope this helps! P.S. Unless you're salt-sensitive, I wouldn't worry about the salt. Water weight is only temporary, and will always come off after a certain number of hours!

Hi Bobbi - I don't know exactly where I read about the 30 fat, 40 carbs and 30 protien ratio. Back when I started my new journey last fall, I wanted to know what was the best ratio, so I just kept looking on the web and the 30/40/30 ratio is what I remembered most people/sites recommending. I don't know if it's right, but that's what I shoot for.

Have a great day everyone!
