howdy,
tiff, the family thing went ok. i was distracted thinking about my weight and wondering what others thought. but, it's not like anyone said anything (to my face). my family is pretty good, and if they did talk about it amongst themelves, it was probably out of concern. i'll see some of them again in august...maybe some results will be noticeable by then!
justcuz, that is so great! dont ever feel bad for being so pumped up. it's great motivation for everyone! it's great to know someone is reaching their goals! are u posting on the success thread? if not, you should. spread the joy!
sandset, i had my babies at 25 and 29. with the second, i wanted to lose weight before the pregnancy. it didn't happen. but, at the time i was going to the gym and one of the trainers told me i could lose weight during pregnancy. eating healthy and working out is good for the baby too! being pregnant could give you an extra boost to take care of your body.
did anyone watch dr.phil on oprah yesterday? the topic was weight loss.
off to do laundry. woo-hoo.

Hey Everybody-

Had a stressful day at work, but I survived and came home to and just worked out. That helped a lot! Eating hasn't been bad lately. Even had a potluck thing for a class/meeting at work last night. I came home and ate before hand so that I would not be hungry for all that high fat stuff. Then took some watermelon and ate that while everyone ate supper.

Sandset... your gyno sounds like a real pill! I hate how sometimes doctors lose sight of the whole picture and just throw all the advice at you. Does she see the conflicts in what she said to you?!?!

Justcuz.... please keep sharing! You are inspirational! Congrats on the loss!

Will... I'm sending you some extra strength to deal with those cravings... YOU can do it!!!

Good luck to everyone...

good morning, guess you can tell by the smilies, i woke up with a great attitude this morning. i have come to the conclusion that i am making this losing weight thing way to complicated, so here is my new approach, THE SIMPLE SOLUTION , eat less, move more. i know we have all heard it before, and if it was that simple we all would have done it by now. but i really want to believe i can. i have got to make this simple for me, i believe even if i want junk every once in a while, i can have it. just not to often and not alot of it.

so here's to my new approach, there is no other. (for me)

have a great day everyone.

Good morning everyone!

Well, since I have returned from my trip, I have been a slug as far as exercising. Well...something slower than a slug. I haven't done a dang thing. That changes today. Eating has been fine, although the other night I stayed up too late and ended up eating two Little Debbie Brownies and then realized that it was a total of 508 calories and 24 fat grams (12 weight watchers points for those of you that count those) and that was a shocker. BUT...I compensated the rest of the day and ate lighter and came out in my calorie range. Which was good, but you should have heard me ranting and raving ALL day about those brownies. My kids were like, "Jeez mom they can't even hear you, they are BROWNIES and they are GONE." "Get over it!"

So, I got over it. The end result was fine, I came out on top, although the list of foods I could have eaten for that same amount of calories/points is staggering. (and more filling)

Live and learn. Anyway, I think I will have Subway for lunch today. I would like to meet that Jared guy that lost weight eating every freaking day at Subway and ask him if he is insane. I can NOT eat that more than about 2x a week. It's just so cold and I like a hot, filling meal.

Heads up for those of you that are interested. There is a line of products called Walden Farms. I have found them at Schnuks in Illinois, but I imagine you can find a location on www.waldenfarms.com

They have fat-free, calorie-free, sugar-free, carbohydrate-free, cholesterol-free products. Yes, you read that right. There label reads, 0,0,0,0,0....nothing in there. Gotta love that.

They have:
16 varieties of salad dressings
6 varieties of dips
BBQ sauce
Ketchup
Coctail Sauce
Chocolate Syrup
and Pancake Syrup.

So...keep that in mind if you happen to stumble across them.

And with that, (my helpful tip of the day) I am outta here.

Stay focused and healthy and lets all meet back here tonight and brag on ourselves. (or at least get some support if we were less than perfect!)

Have a day!
Tiffany

Default Talking about subway

I read an interview with Jared and it actually had some insightful comments about diet plans in general, there is really nothing in particular about subway that let him to lose weight, but he did do a lot of things right. As an aside coporate subway, i.e. Pepsico raised the price on the veggie 6 inch from 2.29 to 2.99 grrrrr. That is a pretty darn hefty percentage-rise increase.

Anyhow he was doing the super-sized fried fast food 'diet' and got huge, dah. Actually so was I. I have lost 140lbs and I am much more photogenic then Jared, they should get me...Anyhow so he started eating the veggie subs, and diet sodas. A subway meal can be healthy but, of course, so can a zillion other meals. For 'fast food' though it is a good choice. I don't eat red meat or chicken anymore so the veg price increase is a real bummer.

Another aside. I have eaten the BK veggie burger a handful of times and it is OK. But one of the strangest things is that unlike a beef burger it doesn't come with lettuce, pickels, onions, and tomatoes. Just lettice usually. So when I order one I always say and all the veggies or specifically lettuce, pickels, onion, and tomatoes. The person taking the order says fine, and then it comes to me with lettuce only and I have to send it back. I tried to email burger king but on their website it has no email and says they won't read any they get. Talk about freaking ridiclous corporate policy. My question is what genius said ok lets offer a veggie burger but not offer veggies with the patty. I hate to say it, but some freaking moron. Even when corporate America tries to do something right they end up stepping all overthemselves. BTW BK does 5 orders of maginitutde more advertising for every other new product then it did for the veggie burger. Oh well, the fast food people are in it to make money not make you healthy.

Yikes!!! I must have struck a nerve!!!!

You know, I do agree to a point about many of the things you have said. There are so many fast food places that aren't in it to make the customer happy. There is a thread around here somewhere about Arbys and how they got rid of their healthy selections and did the Market Fresh, which are simply AWFUL for you.

I do, however, like Burger King and I commend them for adding a Veggie Burger that is actually healthy, unlike TGI Fridays who has a Boca Burger that they put on a horrible bun and then it becomes worse than a regular Whopper.

I also like the Chicken Whopper too, and am glad that when my family starts hollering for Whoppers, I know I can go and make a wise choice.

Subway is good, don't get me wrong...and I will take your word for it that they should have hired you instead!!! lol....but I need variety and I guess fast food places aren't the best place to go when you are trying to eat healthy. Especially if you don't like salads.

If you are lucky enough to have a Chik-fil-a (or however they spell it) that isn't actually too bad for you. They have several options.

My weakness is Chinese food and I just don't like steamed veggies. I want the goopy stuff and the fried things...lol....so I save that for a special occasion.

Well, I could go on and on, but I am hungry and better feed myself before I trek off to the China Buffet.

Thanks for posting Diamond...it's nice to see a new face, so to speak!

Hi everyone! I am back from out of town, missed you all. I am exhausted, had to drive home 175 miles last night and am going to work today. Does anyone else hate driving as much as I do? While I was gone my water heater went out and while the guy was replacing it he dropped the old one on my floor and busted one of the tiles and got water everywhere and left a big mess for me to clean up. You will have to forgive me I am tired and grouchy this morning.

I did OK on the eating while I was gone, as I said in an earlier post when I am at the casino I rarely eat much although I did have 2 strawberry daquiris. They have one of those freezing machines like margaritas are in and they are the best! I won $1000 while I was there but my daughter went with me and didn't take any money so I had to pay for her and I didn't come home with the winnings.

Forgive me if I don't mention you all by name, my brain is still numb from all the noise and I'm still hear bells. Have a wonderful day all.

good morning, tif i cant believe you ate the brownies and still stayed on track, as long as we dont do that too often, it will be alright.

huntress, sounds like you are really having a rough time, hope things will look up for you and congrats for staying in control while you were away, hang in there.

hi diamondog, congrats on all that weight loss, way to go. i do agree that they should automatically put the veggies on, doesnt make anysense. altough i am still not there yet(ya know to order a healthy burger ,over a reg one) but i totally agree with you. i only go once a week and it is usually mcdonalds with my daughter and i am just for now trying to order half of what i get, like instead of large fries , small fries, instead of 2 burgers without buns, just one. stuff like that. maybe one day even just a salad, i will get there.

hello everyone else. hope you all have a great day.

i had a great day yesterday, it was my 10 yr anniversary, even though i have been with him for 17 yrs, with the exception of one break up that didnt even last a yr. anyway, i did so good eating during the day, that allowed me to have a nice dinner out. i had a nice pasta dish with a salad and a little piece of roll with just a little butter on it. i only ate half the pasta dish too. it is a really big accomplishement, normally it would have been a great excuse to overeat and drink for that matter. i didnt even have a cocktail, i know, how boring. but, i tried to listen to my body and i just didnt have to have one. i will be going to the shore this weekend anyway, and i know that i usually when i want a cocktail so i will just have one and stay in control. i can do this.

oh by the way i felt like having a slimfast shake for breakfast yesterday at around 8:30 am and it kept me full till almost 12:30 so there goes my theory about eating carbs and sugar make me more hungry then if i had eaten a whole protien breakfast. i think i was just being brainwashed about the protein diets, ya know carbs bad, protein good, carbs bad , proteins good
not that anything is wrong with the protien diets, but maybe i am not as addicted to carbs as i thought, maybe i was just looking for another excuse to say why i am so heavy. well those days are gone, if i want protien, i will eat protein if i want carbs i will eat carbs. just staying in control and not binging , will get me to goal. wow, i am very talkative this morning. i will go now.


check ya all later.

Hello!
I went to Goodwill today (looking for short sleeve shirts that didnt make my arms look like sausage rolls) and I found two Susan Powter books for a buck! "Stop the Insanity" and "Food".
I just couldn't resist for a buck. I read the Insanity one nearly nearly ten years ago. I remember it being motivational. And I need all the motivation I can get. Tif, Did you get your Susan video? Tried it yet?
I tried doing Denise Austin this morning. I don't own a video, she was on tv. OMG! My leg muscles are already sore, and sore usually doesnt kick in until the day after I do something new! I may have to tune into her again!
Back on the subject of shopping....I did find a few shirts that will get me by. Not sure if they help disguise my sausage rolls.
Didn't find any pants, I think I'm between sizes....yeah, that's it, between sizes.

Happy Anniversaries!!!!

No, still waiting on the video. I love the Stop the Insanity...Food was OK, but she really goes on and on and on in that one. There was useful information to weed out, but at that price, I'd say "heck yes!"

Struggling along today girls. I didn't want to walk last night, so I tried Cher's step tape and was throwing my arms around getting into it, and lasted about 15 minutes, before I had to take a nap. LOL....but my neck and shoulders are sore. So, later in the evening I went for my walk, but only did half.

I got my period today, so that may have been part of the craving of the brownies, and the no energy situation. I do feel a little better today and not quite so bloated.

Well, it's hot today and I am just sitting here thinking how nice it would be to just sit here all day in the air conditioning and eat juice bars...but I think I should do something constructive to pass the time.

Maybe I will clean the office downstairs, or the laundry room. Keep busy so I don't snack.

Anyway, I will catch up with you all tonight~

WHERE ARE OUR OTHER PEOPLE???????????????????
I hope everyone is well.

congrat tigerlily. on the annivarsery. hope you had a good one.

tif, i know having our period sucks, but doesnt it feel good to not have pms anymore??

just cuz, glad you are having a great week.

i would really love to hear how anyone who has seen her recently, (susan powter) has seen her. i cant seem to find anything recent on her. i have 2 step tapes of hers. i never even heard of her having an abs tape or any other tapes.

anyway , i didnt eat really healthy today and i did have some, drinks but i was really in control with food and drinks, alot less then i usually would have consumed.

i will try to check in tomorrow before i go to the shore.
