Default My last post for a week.

Just about ready to get out of here

Going to catch up one last time.

Zanne, I would be eating way too much of the goodies too. Last yaer we baked all non-legal things, but I never even licked a finger. This year it might be a little more tempting. I think I will try a few legal things. Deb or someone had some cookies posted that sounded good. How sweet of you to help out your friend with dinners. I don't think banana bread is legal either. But it is good. Have a great weekend and watch out for those parties and the cake. You can do it I know.

Toni, for the plane take some peanuts or pb on triscuts. Apple in your purse. At your DB stick to veggies and meats and salads and you will do fine. Keep up that willpower to resist the goodies. You can do it. Have a great trip!

Bob, Please keep me in your thoughts and I will be ok. I will feel the vibes! Pull for the cats on the 16th for me, they play Vandy. Should be a win.

Sef, You are just one busy bee. You need to rest some and take care of yourself. If you have Krogers down there, I buy their private selection Spaghetatinie (sp)

Debdetox, Welcome to our board. We have a recipe section which is full of goodies. Good for you and DH on your loss. That is great. It is better when you get into cooking and trying new things.

Denise, Can you come by my house and wash my car. It is filthy!

Serene, Of course you were nice to Joel, you are his mother and mothering comes natural. Hope he is feeling better soon. Have a great time tonite and I know you can stay legal all weekend. You help eath other.

OK gals, I'm outta here. I'll miss you all. See ya the 18th.

Question ????

Ok, I've spent a half hour looking up GI lists. I've found banana bread listed between 47-55. I'm assuming this is banana bread made with white flour and sugar. So if I change the flour to WW and use unsweetened apple sauce instead of sugar, would that lower the GI?

I remember SB book saying that Bananas were a no-no. Unfortunately, I borrowed both the SB and Montignac book from the library and don't have them for reference to see why bananas are not OP.

I've got a few opinions from some of you, but can someone help me out with the whys and wherefores, please?

I have a couple of dozen bananas in my freezer and want to use them up. I suppose that I can still make the loaves my new way and give them away--they'll just be a lot healthier for those who recieve them!

Default Banana Bread and other no-no's

Good afternoon. You guessed it...I'm still behind but I was reading Zanne's post and wanted to share. This is just my opinion and could be way wrong....but it works for me. *smile* When I read my first SB book....I didn't get it that you could never eat certain fruits or veggies. They were just the ones to avoid. So to me if all your other ingredients were SB legal the bananas in the bread would be okay for a treat. Especially if you are near or close to goal. The heavier I was the more strick I was with myself. I think you know which things will be triggers and which things would just be a nice treat.

My bad is chips...ugh....struggling with them lately because I just crave the salt. I was sitting here at the computer thinking..I am a CARB junkie..I need help...LOL Seriously...if I allow myself more than the occassional chip or two I'm asking for trouble cause I just want more. Other things like a bite or two of rice doesn't phase me.

I think Sugar Busters is the best Way of Eating out there...even when I don't follow it as strict as I should. I'm leading up to Christmas there is some banana pudding with my name on it. I have to figure out a way this year to make it more legal...any ideas on the vanilla wafers? Gotta have some sort of wafer or it just aint the same.

I sure miss reading on a daily basis...I'm kinda blah right now...that might be one reason I'm skipping no the board more than I should. Each of you are a treasure and I appreciate all the support and input this board has.

Be encourage...have hope...and work toward the goal.

Evening y'all. Just sitting here listening to our high school football game on the radio. We're winning against our arch rivals. Good news on the car. The other woman's insurance has taken full responsibility and will pay for all damages. They will also provide us with a car to drive while ours is being repaired. For some reason my eating has not been good the last couple of days. I've got to get back on track.

COUNTRY: I don't even think about chips or any other starchy carbs much. It's still those sweets, especially chocolate, that get me.I'm with you. I think this WOE is the best. But I am afraid that I will overindulge this holiday season.

BOB: Gee.....thanks.


DEBDETOX: Welcome to the board. You'll love it here.

ZANNE: How lucky your friend is to have you to help out. I don't know about bananas. I eat one every once in a while.

SERENE: Glad your son's surgery went well. Hope you and Tranquil have a good time tonight. I would love to see YaYa Sisterhood. Give me a review. The sweet potato recipe looks wonderful.

DAYBREAKER: Welcome aboard. I tried Atkins a few years ago, but didn't even make it two weeks. It's just too restrictive for me. SB is a much more reasonable WOE that you can stick with for life.

DENISE: Glad to hear you are feeling better. I agree that all that car washing/buffing should count for your exercise.

TONI: Haven't done much walking lately. I would really like to have a treadmill. We had one many moons ago. Maybe for Christmas.....

Well, it's half time so I guess I better get something done before the second half. Have a good weekend.

Good evening everyone! I am much improved tonight. My throat is almost normal, only cold drinks bother it, and I am not feeling terribly tired. I am still resting and reading most of the time though. I did take my daughter up for her auto immune panels at the lab this morning. The lab lady was going to my doctors right after we were there and was going to tattle on me being out! Uh oh!

Watched a movie tonight.. Rat Race. It was funny, in a silly slap stick way. I love Rowan Atkinson, and he was in it.

I tried to be totally SB legal today, but had a can of chicken noodle soup for lunch, and popcorn while watching the movie. Is popcorn ok? Did I read that someplace, or am I being wishful....

Guess I will hit the bed. I did not get in any naps today, so I feel a bit tired! Sweet dreams!

We made it back home tonight safe & sound. Had a nice trip & good visit with DH's family in Oklahoma & in Arkansas too, then we passed & saw my niece & new great nephew in Monticello, AR on our way home today. Shaaa he's so cute. Had finished his crochet blanket during our trip so we were able to deliver that to my niece.

Have lots to do, so just wanted to say hi & let everyone know that we're back home.

Here's a little FF I had in my email. Thought it was cute & wanted to share.

I don't do the horescope thingy, but I found this too
funny not to share just for the reading

What's Your "Southern Sign"? Some of us (especially
Southerners) are pretty skeptical of horoscopes, and
it has become obvious that what we need are "Southern"

OKRA (Dec 22 - Jan 20) Although you appear crude, you
are actually very slick on the inside. Okras have
tremendous influence. An older Okra can look back
over his life and see the seeds of his influence
everywhere. Stay away from Moon Pies.

CHITLIN (Jan 21 - Feb. 19) Chitlins come from humble
backgrounds. A chitlin, however, can make something
of himself if he's motivated and has lots of
seasoning. In dealing with Chitlins, be careful.
They can erupt like Vesuvius. Chitlins are best with
Catfish and Okra.

BOLL WEEVIL (Feb. 20 - Mar 20) You have an
overwhelming curiosity. You're unsatisfied with the
surface of things, and you feel the need to bore deep
into the interior of everything. Needless to say, you
are very intense and driven as if you had some inner
hunger. Nobody in their right mind is going to marry
you, so don't worry about it.

MOON PIE (Mar 21 - Apr 20) You're the type that spends
a lot of time on the front porch. It's a cinch to
recognize the physical appearance of Moon Pies. Big
and round are the key words here. You should marry
anybody who you can get remotely interested in the
idea. It's not going to be easy.
This might be the year to think about aerobics.
Or---maybe not.

POSSUM (Apr 21 - May 21) When confronted with life's
difficulties, possums have a marked tendency to
withdraw and develop a don't-bother-me-about-it
attitude. Sometimes you become so withdrawn, people
actually think you're dead. This strategy is probably
not psychologically healthy but seems to work for you.
One day, however, it won't work, and you may find
your problems actually running you over.

CRAWFISH (May 22 - June 21) Crawfish is a water sign.
If you work in an office, you're always hanging around
the water cooler. Crawfish prefer the beach to the
mountains, the pool to the golf course, the bathtub to
the living room. You tend to be not particularly
attractive physically, but you have very, very good

COLLARDS (June 22 - July 23) Collards have a genius
for communication. They love to get in the "melting
pot" of life and share their essence with the essence
of those round them. Collards make good social
workers, psychologists and baseball managers.
As far as personal life goes, if you are Collards,
stay away from Moon Pies. It just won't work. Save
yourself a lot of heartache.

CATFISH (July 24 - Aug. 23) Catfish are
traditionalists in matters of the heart, although
whiskers may cause problems for loved ones. You
catfish are never easy people to understand. You
prefer the muddy bottoms to the clear surface of life.
Above all else, Catfish should stay away from Moon

GRITS (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23) Your highest aim is to be
with others like yourself. You like to huddle
together with a big crowd of other Grits. You love to
travel though, so maybe you should think about joining
a club. Where do you like to go? Anywhere there is
cheese or gravy or bacon or butter or eggs. If you
can go somewhere where they have all these things,
that serves you well.

BOILED PEANUTS (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23) You have a
passionate desire to help your fellow man.
Unfortunately, those who know you best---your friends
and loved ones---may find that your personality is
much too salty, and their criticism will probably
affect you deeply because you are really much softer
than you appear. You should go right ahead and marry
anybody you want to because in a certain way, yours is
a charmed life. On the road of life, you can be sure
that people will always pull over and stop for you.

BUTTER BEAN (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22) Always invite a
Butter Bean, because Butter Beans get along well with
everybody. You, as a Butter Bean, should be proud.
You've grown on the vine of life, and you feel at home
no matter what the setting. You can sit next to
anybody. However, you, too, shouldn't have anything
to do with Moon Pies.

ARMADILLO (Nov. 23 - Dec 21) You have a tendency to
develop a tough exterior, but you are actually quite
gentle. A good evening for you? Old friends, a fire,
some roots, fruit, worms and insects. You're not
concerned with today's fashions and trends.
You're not concerned with anything about today.
You're really almost prehistoric in your interests and
behavior patterns. You probably want to marry another
Armadillo, but Possum is another somewhat kinky,
mating possibility.

Just checking in once more time before I crash. I had to stay up to hear the rest of the game. We won in double over time. Now, you have to understand that football comes before everything else in Texas. Testify to this you Texas girls.

MELF: That was too funny. BTW, I'm a GRITS person.

Thankyou, I guess I need to go buy the book and give it aread through before I decide to give it a go. I'm just not sure about all these recipes that call for these ingriedents that are hard to find. (the baking stuff, cause I bake alot) I do not need SB to lose anymore just want to cut out some carbs and sweets and have been hearing about it. (all good things too)

What is considered as a low carb maple syrup? I use Maple Grove Farms, Cozy Cottage made w/Splenda, and it has 4 carbs. Is that ok for this WOE?

Good morning everyone. Its a gloomy day here. Need to dig my suit case out for my trip on Tues. Wish I could decide on a winter coat. Go stylish in my black leather or wear my old down coat I'm sick of. And my DH is no help at all. Hope I can get out and walk while I'm there to make up for the treadmill. Ut oh that probably is my coat answer..

debdetox- Glad to see you here. Welcome to the board. You'll love the friendship and encouragement you find on this board.

Jack-K- Guess we'll both be out of here and hope we come back refreshed and happy......

Mercy- Howdy.... Hope you're doing okay...

Zanne- Yep you're right bananas are a no no. Sure would make great gifts at Christmas. A nice loaf of banana bread.

Bob- Oh my gosh you're killing me. I'm going to wash my hands right now...... yucky poo..... Poo did I touch that.....?????

CountryMom- Make yourself post more often, it will sure help you stay on SB better. You're so close to your goal and so fun to read about...

music teach- Hope your school went on the win the game. Hope you have a restful week-end. Yes a treadmill would be a great Christmas present.

Monet- You sound so much better, I'm so glad for you. I think 1 cup of air popped popcorn is legal.

Melf- Glad you had a good time on your trip. Love your southern horscope....

CandiceJ- Just adjusting your own recipes is good. And if you love to bake then you can think up some great ones. We also have great recipes here. Try Deb's crustless cheese cake. Yummy..

aleka- Is that maple syrup sugar free? SB isn't really a low carb way of eating. Here you can have 2 to 3 starchy carbs a day which makes it a wonderful eating plan. You aren't missing out on anything except sugar, white flour, white rice, and white pasta. You can substitue whole grain wheat for all of that. Its so healthy to eat this way.

Guess it time to go and eat breakfast...
