Hi everyone

Jman, I arrived at my goal weight like Allinel. I looked really good at 126 but found that hard to maintain, yet I was able to maintain 128 so I'm shooting for that as I looked pretty good at that weight and felt healthy. I did have a lot of muscle tone but I'm short, so that weight was about right for me. Pick something reasonable to shoot for and when you get there you can re-evaluate.

Diva, I'm a planner too but the total opposite when it comes to discipline. I skate through on luck mixed with a little (not a lot) bit of work and a lot of long range planning which I'm entitled to change. For me, being too disciplined creates stress and takes the joy out of life. Then again I only have 1 child and I just had her..I find life is still a blast with her, and I plan on keeping up with all my traveling and fun activities, only I'll have my little baby along for the ride (or her grammy will watch her on occasion ).

Vega, I think you should definitely lose eating 1400 calories, regardless of what it was you ate. I also have very high fat intake, but usually its the good kind of fats as I eat a lot of nuts. I really dont worry about it as long as the amount of saturated fat is low. But I have weeks where that's higher and since I dont have any health problems I really dont worry about it much. I feel as long as I"m eating reasonably healthy, I dont worry about being perfect.

A great evening to everyone!

CoolMom -- I had to look... they are too precious!!!!

Welcome to Vega Botain! The fast food may make your fat content go way up (saturated fat that is), which can slow down losing. But you will have to just experiment and see. If you are trying to curb your fast food eating, it helps to watch SuperSize Me. Again, welcome and good luck!

"Zoe~ You're my hero! Not only do have three beautiful children, but you're a cloth diaper mom!"


I liked cloth diapers.
Throw aways were still on the new side when my kids were young. I actually used a old wringer washer when I used diapers, and hung them on a line. Thank God!! we finally got rich enough to buy a real washer
my son thinks the cloth diapers are burp rags.


Hello Jman and Vega, Welcome.

Diva,
Wish sometimes we lived closer to a large city. Maybe then we could check out an authentic Italian restaurant. Does pizza count?
4 cigs. go girl!
I quit a few years back. I am really glad when I see how much they cost. $4 pk! I remember buying my first carton for $5.00.
Good luck. I am sure You will do this as well as you do the rest of your life.

Theresa

SO I have been a part of 3FC for a while now...but really have not gotten servious about my weight loss, and in turn have gotten to my all time high of 200 pounds. I have done calorie counting in the past. but when I missed a day of counting I just let myself go. So I decided that if I joined this daily chat that would help keep me on track. I do have a fitday account.

I have decided to eat 1500-1700 calories a day, plus trying to do 30 minutes of exercise a day. IS this a good goal?

Today I ate 1483 calories

I just realized I probably should be checking in !! Sorry, I'm new, I'll get it eventually

Calories for today: 1411

I've been logging my food for the past few days...I have GOT to lay off the granola. It is my serious weakness -- mixed with yogurt, that is.

I'm off to do my homework...nice to hear from you all.

Today's calories were at 1865, with 300 burned on the elliptical. Argh! Wish I could have a lower day tomorrow but somehow I doubt it. I had slowed down for a few weeks but my appetite is back.

not bad! a little low but in my opinion its better than being too high! 23% were from fat but thats ok because the only fat i had today was from my roasted nuts and a few here and there. I'm getting excited for my weigh in on sunday because i have already lost 1.5 pounds since i joined this board!

Hello Everyone!

Calories for today: 1668

A little high, but we went out for Thai food tonight and it was impossible to pass on the Pahd Thai and my favorite squid salad. At least I hadn't gone completely crazy earlier in the day.

We just got back from Trader Joe's and I discovered a new thing for when you must have something sweet, Lemon and Chocolate Meringue cookies (two separate packages--the flavors aren't mixed.) They are only 26 calories each for the large ones (for the lemon) and approx 8.5 calories for the mini ones (chocolate.) Even my full-fat-loving DH liked them.

I didn't get out for my walk and I'm actually glad. I think I might still be too congested to exercise right now. Plus it did rain and as gloomy as it was we really need it around here. I'll get back into swing of things as soon as I feel better.

Aphil~ I hope you don't have what I have. It's hanging on for dear life. I hope you feel better soon!

Littlered~You must have had (have?) some nice biceps when you were using a wringer washer! Washers are one convenience I am glad to have.

to Vega, Stephyk, Candy, and anyone else I might have missed!

1638 cals today. (1700 goal)
missed my walk.

I tried to snap on my baby/kid carrier, to contain my 3 year old in Subway today, and the belt was too small. waaaah! It was my first try since having the baby. More incentive to shed the chub.

Good Morning!
This is the second time I'm posting, I tried to download a couple of pictures off a CD and I lost everything in the process. I'll post the pictures and re-write everything on another post.
Grammy... We've never had problems with lice in our chickens, we're pretty isolated out in the country and the chickens are fenced in so they don't get near any critters.
CoolMom... We purchased 25 baby Orpington chicks and ended up with only 5 hens, the rest was all rooster. We butchers all but two roosters. "Chief" is in the picture below and he used to fight with the other rooster all the time so we took him out. We grew to love him so much that we couldn't eat him. The other one is the one we should have shot, his name was "yellow legs". He became over protective of the hens and would attack Bruce every time he went in to collect eggs. He only did that once to me, then off with his head. I took great pleasure in eating him! This sounds really cruel to you city slickers, sorry! The 5 hens we were left with turned out to be plenty, in the summer they lay over 40 eggs per week. Way more than we can eat but our extended families enjoy free organic eggs. In the fall they molt and you won't see any eggs for about 6 weeks, once the new feathers come back in you're in business again. Since we live in Minnesota we have a heating lamp in the chicken coop and the hens don't lay many eggs. They used their energy to keep warm. We love all our hens, they are all so sweet. Whenever they see us go out the back door they come running, we feed them expensive grapes everyday for a treat. We actually lose money on them since we give away all the extra eggs, but we enjoy them.
Well, I'm going to send this and see if it works. Bruce (DH) is in one of the pictures thinking he's funny with his gun.

Ummm, Bobbo, he IS funny with his gun. What a different life you have. I just couldn't imagine living that way. I guess you couldn't imagine living a different way either. It's what you get used to. Those are the yellowest chickens I've ever seen.

Tuesday's calories - about 1200.

Have a great day everyone.
