So glad for this thread.
I haven't been tracking and started again yesterday and finally see a movement on the scale.
Working out hard at the gym and staying on plan with my food.
I don't know what I'm doing for dinner the rest of the week though, so I need to make some plans so I don't get sidetracked!

Well, my planned smoothie last night turned into half a Panda Express chow mein meal with DD. She ordered chow mein, orange chicken and beef & broccoli. We shared the single plate but I'm sure there was way too much fat and calories with all that sauce and deep frying.

Today should be pretty good.
B~oatmeal
S~nada as I forgot to pack my veggies
L~Lean Cuisine and yogurt
S~??
D~out tonight before our DD's last high school concert

I've definitely had enough exercise yesterday and today. But, calories still a little high (about 1700) instead of my goal of 1500. I see that I made a mistake by buying a box of granola bars (100 cal's each) , seems I can't eat just one. I won't be buying these again.

Lily- for me it's virtually any food.

Hmmm. For me at certain times it can be ANY food. And other times it won't make a difference what there is, I'll just stay away from it TOTALLY. See that's the key for me - TOTALLY staying away. Cause' once I start, I've got a pretty difficult time stopping. So when I'm on plan, it's got to be very structured with no room for "extras". No room whatsoever for anything "carby" or "snacky".

Anyway, the foot is coming along, thankfully. No where near perfect and I still must take it easy , but I did manage to move at least a little bit yesterday. I'm hoping to see big improvement now every day and praying that by the weekend I'll be back to my old ACTIVE self. I HATE this. All right, this too shall pass.

Eating was POP yesterday, as she breathes a huge sigh of relief.

I thought I was just going to get away with just the big wedding on Monday, off-eating wise that is. But yesterday I was invited to a big BBQ on Sunday. I WILL stick with grilled chicken cutlet and salad. I will, I will, I WILL. All right, don't want to jump ahead to Sunday, just yet. I need to get through today and the first 1/2 of the weekend.

Hmmm, I wonder how Meg is doing in New Mexico.

Have a good, on plan day folks.

I am still struggling, though yesterday was MUCH better than the recent past. I foolishly thought I should "taste" my new natural peanut butter (a first for me; I generally buy Skippy but am ready to change over). Apparently I like it!

Woke up this morning to 1/4" gain on most of my measurements, and 5 pounds up on the scale. I know a lot of the 5 pounds is water weight, with TOM right around the corner, and too much sodium in my diet recently. But still. Just like that - wiped out almost a quarter of my loss. Unacceptable. I think I've made peace with it, though. This is the point when I've given up in the past, and I just refuse to do it this time. That's why I stopped lurking a few weeks ago and started posting. That's why I've given away my clothes as I out-shrink them (is that a word?). I am not going back to unhealthy habits. Period. I'm sticking with all you wonderful maintainers!

So, today:
B: Egg Beaters with tomatoes, english muffin with laughing cow cheese, strawberries
S: Banana and almonds
L: Salad with chicken, soy beans, barley, and lots of veggies
S: Fruit and either cottage cheese or a skim latte
D: Chicken with quinoa and veggies
S: Greek yogurt with raspberries, some Fiber One, and a drizzle of honey

And got in my 3 1/4 mile run today with intervals, a leg workout, and abs.

Congrats to everyone who is already back in the groove - I'm right behind you all!

Debbie

Debbie-- your menu sounds delicious!
Can I join you?

Luckily I don't like peanut butter. I'm thankful for any foods I don't like as there are soooooo many I do love!

I'm still trying to get my cal's back to 1500 range (unfortunately still coming out in 1700 range). I need to go buy some fruit to help keep me full and quit using other junk for snacks.

POP for breakfast today and plan to stay this way throughout the day. I'm having to just take it one day at a time. I do plan to hit the gym again today for a good workout.

joyofsix, I also have a problem with eating double helpings of cold cereal.

modkittn, for a while I was eating those Fiber One bars. Then I just quit eating them and now they taste Way too sweet for me.

mel and robin, for me it's mostly high carb foods that I tend to have a problem with.

OK - yesterday wasn't a WOOHOO a HOO...it was more like a HO.
Seriously, it wasn't so bad, I just had a smidgeon of pizza and a reasonable amount of chocolate.
Still stayed around 1400.
But I didn't attend my aquafit class or do any more minutes on the elliptical.

Todays plan

B oatmeal/pbutter
S- small pear
L- salmon + greens/tomato
S- grapes
D- chicken curry + 1/3c basamati
S- ? see where calories are at

Exercise
Elliptical = 45min
Gardening = 45min

Starting to feel a tad svelter - I am avoiding the scale till Friday

Robin - I hope your foot heals up very soon. I know what thats like, I am almost back to normal after 18 weeks of not being able to do much other than hobble.
