This is the
where all of you who are following this WOE, or are thinking about doing so, are welcome to come join in and be a part of our wonderful group.

Other than finding support and friendship on this board, we also try to do something during the the week to add a little difference to our board.


Please take some time to check out our extensive recipe boards. Our RECIPE BOARDS can be located at the link below:

We have SEVEN INFORMATIVE BOARDS!!!! Please take a few minutes to visit them! New information is continually being posted, so please make sure you visit them often!!! The boards are listed below as well as the link that will take you to the boards:


We also have a SB WEEKLY EXERCISE BOARD that you can log your daily/weekly exercises on which is located on our weekly support board:

Then there's our latest addition to the SB BOARDS which is called OFF THE EATEN PATH This board is for everything NOT related to SB. You can use this board to post questions or comments on just about anything (okay, within reason). A book you recommend, a cleaning tip, a great website deal, etc. etc. Here's the link:

Will post my usual morning post sometime later, but wanted to make sure I got our
done early in the morning, so here's my contribution for MM, there's 2 of them to read today, I REALLY like the first one in particular:


Time is the canvas upon which the great experience of life is rendered. Too often we look at time as if it were an enemy, but it is certainly not.

If your dreams were to be instantly fulfilled they would not be worth attaining, for it is through time that their value is created and lived. If your troubles were to be instantly erased, they would serve no positive purpose.

Think for a moment of what a blessing it is that the experiences in your life are laid out over time. Each experience takes time to complete, and because of that you're able to savor its richness more fully.

Certainly it can be frustrating when the fulfillment of your dream seems a long way off. But imagine how much more terribly frustrating it would be if your whole life happened at once, with no time to separate the experiences from one another.

The things you sincerely and earnestly seek will come to you, all in good time. And as they come with the passage of time, you'll have the time to fully live and delight in each one.

-- Ralph Marston


There are countless pathways that lead to success and fulfillment. So it makes very little sense to try and squeeze yourself onto the same pathway as everyone else.

There is virtually no limit to the number of ways in which your dream can be reached. And there's certainly no reason to give up on that dream if just one of the most obvious ways is blocked. By using the slightest amount of creativity and imagination, you can get around just about any obstacle. You can fashion your own special, one-of-a-kind pathway to success.

There is much that you can learn from the achievements of others. However, you cannot count on being able to simply imitate the success of someone else. Instead, learn from the success of others and integrate it into your life in your own unique way. There's no need to push and shove your way onto the most obvious and most crowded roads that lead to success.

Always, there is another way, a creative, innovative way that's just right for you. Figure out what it is, follow it with all you have, and enjoy the success that will surely come as a result.

-- Ralph Marston
Have a wonderful day, and a fabulous week!!!!!

SB since 3/22/00
Reached goal 6/10/01

Monday Morning

Hello, y'all!!! Hey sorry to be AWOL this weekend and most of last week. We were out of town for the holiday weekend and just got back last night. My eating was pretty good over the weekend. I discovered how much I really enjoy oats. Yum!!! I sure hope they are legal. Says 100%ww on the label and the word instant is not where around. Is that the right kind?

Gotta head out for work. I hope we all have a GREAT week and that we can feel really good about our efforts. I have something for motivation, but will have to post it later.

Hugs to you all!!!

I slept like a rock last night, and did not even hear the alarm. I am planning on going on a treasure hunt today for whole wheat matzos. There are two Kosher grocery stores a bit a drive from here, and they both have them, I am told. If I can't find them around here, I will drive there. I am determined to make the Matzo ball soup legally. Everyone here loves it!

QUILTER: I am so glad to see your post! I was beginning to worry about you, since you had not been on in a while. I missed you!

I have been playing on here, and have not had breakfast yet, so guess I will go find some.... later!

Good Morning All

Hope everyone had a good weekend. I had a good day yesterday at my dd's. I thought I did fairly well eating. I had turkey, green peas, cole slaw, green salad. I had no bread and no scolloped potatoes although I did have some of the homemade turkey dressing and a little trifle for dessert. Also had fresh fruit for dessert. Oh, I almost forgot I did have two small oatmeal cookies that my dil had made. I just had to sample them. They were nice and crunchie so will be trying out the recipe soon. If mine turn out crunchie I will post the recipe.

Deb - Sorry to hear about your Dad having to go back to the hospital. Hope he is o.k.

Have to nip out to the store for a few things. I'll be off to badminton this afternoon - missed going Friday because of the holiday. This evening I am going to my dil's Mom's for another turkey dinner. Hope I can resist the bread and potatoes again. I haven't been on the scale for a few days, trying to resist until WIW, maybe longer, see how I feel on Wednesday. I've been eating well the past week and am feeling good but am afraid to weigh in case there is no change, then I would feel pissed and may start stuffing again.

Bye for now.

Good Monday Morning All

Whew! Just got in from my walk/jog and I'm sweating and stinking up a storm! Was a good one though, did my 4.5 miles in 51:02, haven't seen a time like that in a while.

Here's the latest on my Dad. For those of you who are newer to the board, my Dad had blood clots in his leg last summer and was in the hospital for weeks. Due to his surgery he just had for colon cancer he was off the cumadin to thin his blood. Yesterday, it seemed out of the blue that it happened, his leg started to swell up and he was in excruciating pain. Well, blood clots seemed to had formed again like last summer and my Mom knew what was going on and called 911. They transported him back to the hospital he just go out of last Thursday. Just was on an I/M with my Mom and she said that they didn't get him in a semi-private room until 2am and that the Dr. was very worried about the leg because they didn't get that strong a pulse. That he'd be in there for 3 or 4 days. I'll go up there after my yoga class and before I have to p/u MICHAEL at school today (LAUREN has to stay til 9pm).

This weekend there weren't a ton of garage sales but I managed to do quite well at the few I was able to hit. I got a 19" Phillips color TV with remote for $5. I works but I think the tube may be going due to it taking a little time to get a picture, but the girl says this is how it always was, though I doubt it, but for $5, I bought it. Best thing was a cordless mouse and cordless Logitech keyboard, brand new in the box for $5-MICHAEL is in absolute heaven with it! Got an antenna for outside for LAUREN'S room, she has the worst reception and all the rabbit ears I've bought don't help a bit. It will cost more than the $2 I paid for it to have it installed properly! Couple cookbooks, a few odds and ends, nothing else exciting.

Want to get in a few replies before I have to take off for my yoga class today...

MONET, LOL! I didn't get to read the FF you posted til just now. They were really good and cute! THANKS! I needed to laugh this morning! Sounds like you had a wonderful Seder! Better than mine! LOL! Did you recite the prayers in Hebrew as they have them printed phonetically in the booklets? Did you use a real Seder plate? Did Elijah come and visit? Seriously, it sounds like a great experience! When my Uncle Joe was alive many, many years ago it would go on for hours and hours, we hated it! Hopefully next year we'll have our act together. I love matzah balls soup. Did you make it from a mix or from scratch? Did anyone make the egg soup? Every loves it but it's just eggs, water and salt! Why did you sit on the floor? We never did that! And, not only do they make ww matzah, BUT, I have a recipe for matzah as well and in fact, just told MICHAEL that I would make some!!!! It seems easy enough that even I can do it!

BOB, old girl, so how was your Easter birthday yesterday? How are you feeling? Hope better! Give us the lowdown!!!! Hey, don't EVER underestimate the bargain queen of Miami!!!!

TRANQUIL, thought about you yesterday as I was wolfing down falafel. When you and ZACH come down we will have to hit El Salam one of the days!!!! Hope this week is less stressful for you!

TEENSY, my condolences to your family on their loss and to your Dad with his partner. Hope DH continues to improve. I think my DM can sympathize with you as she just had my Dad home a few days out of the hospital. Bad way to get a break from him again, but he'll be back to irk the crap out of her again in a few days!

LIN, how did STEVEN like his Easter basket goodies? Def. does sound like an interesting variety of items there! Fast? Oh gosh, no! I walk and jog. I think one of my fastest times was just under 45 minutes. Today wasn't bad, but I've definitely gotten slower, esp. when it's hot. Hope you were able to get some shut eye finally!

ROSALIE, how'd the bagels turn out??? Which recipe did you end up using?
Have you ever tried to make pretzels??? Looking forward to hearing about your oatmeal cookies. I love them crisp OR soft but haven't made them but maybe once since I started SB. Enjoy your day playing badminton, hope you win!

ZANNE, you like FA too? We remember when you couldn't find it here in the States. When we went to Europe we brought home a bunch of stuff. Was happy when we were finally able to find some of the stuff here, though it's still hard to find some of their items. Have you ever tried to make a legal carrot cake? I like carrot cake too and hope to one day try my hand at making a legal one as I have many recipes for them.

JANE, good going with no beer! Tell is about the pizza you made? How'd the dough taste? Was that your intention to make pizza when you whipped up the dough? Would it be a good dough to do pretzels with? I think it's wonderful that you go to the BM to cheer on the runners. I know it means a lot to them!!!!!!

SEF, vacuuming and make the beds?? Girl, you're the bomb. Thanks for reminding me what I have to put on my to do list today. Not that I'll do them, just said I had to put them on my list

FILLISE, hope you enjoy your last couple days with your family. I think it's wonderful how you are holding steadfast to this WOE and not giving in to eating off plan for anyone, even DM. Why she would be so gung-ho for you to eat a piece of cake just doesn't make sense with knowing you are on this WOE. ELI does the same all the time but I don't give in, that is, unless I've already given in and am so off plan already, then, he doesn't have to prod me hard at all! I haven't eaten off plan in almost 4 weeks now, not a single thing of any kind, not even legal stuff! Let me know if you think about it next year when that film festival rolls around again, he'd love to submit a piece anywhere he could.

COUNTRY, congrats to DS for his "big catch!" Did you take a pic of him with JAWS?? Congrats to the little one as well for snagging his first bass. But, fish for Easter breakfast? What the heck, or should I say, how the heck did you serve that for breakfast????

SHEANNE, wow, I think that is so cool that you pick a country and make foods for the holiday from that country!!! How'd it all turn out?

JACKK, here's hoping your sister finds the success you have with SB. Girl, you are sounding like you're a mess with all these burns and cuts! Be careful!!!!

QUILTER, what brand of oats did you get? I'm sure if they weren't instant they are the rolled oats which are fine. Just remember portion control. Did you put anything in with them?

Well, I'm outta here. I do believe I've caught up now. It helped with not having too many Easter day posts to get the job done. If I did miss anyone, it wasn't intentional, I promise.

Have a wonderful week everyone!!!

Thumbs down Good Monday Morning!

Hello all from sunny NC!

I did ok for Easter, but not perfect. I had a roll with lunch and some potato chips with dinner (in the spirit that I had to break the lenten fast somehow). I DID NOT have any of the cake! So far this morning, I'm back on track.

Over the next six weeks, I'm going to show gratitude for all my blessings by only feeding my body what is good for it--with one exception--Derby Day! That's my next challenge. This weekend will be tough as I have a retreat with my SR. High youth Friday night. I will have to be sure to take some legal snacks for me!

Marie--Please don't let the scale throw you off! You know you are doing ok with your eating--so let that be your guide, not the numbers on the scale!

Monet--When you get the WW matzos, please post the recipe, I'm curious now!

Kim--Oats are fine as long as they are not the instant! Good to hear from you!

I have no idea what we are planning to do today. We all sort of collapsed after the nieces left yesterday. I head for home tomorrow--I need to get there because I'm really missing Belle!

Have a great Op day everyone!

Hey Deb--we were posting at the same time! I hope your DD is doing better this morning--he's really had a right time of it lately! I'll let you know about the film festival next fall.

Good Morning Everyone!

Today will be a stressful one and then the rest of the week should be a breeze, boss going out of town. Weather is wonderful here, DS is home with his dad today since there is no school....I am glad - they can have some fun together.

Meanwhile, I must get going - just wanted to check in - trying to keep online and on program....

Did you see that Hershey's Reeses come in Sugar Free now? They were part of the Easter Basket given to me by my Gram...

Take care all! Have an OP Monday if I don't get a chance to stop back in though I will do my best to keep current.

Just for one day, journal EVERYTHING (food wise) that enter's your mouth. Weigh, measure and write. I know, many of you don't like doing it, but just one day won't kill you!!!

Anyone game?

If you need help in finding info on a certain food I recommend www.CALORIEKING.COM as one of my choices (I do have others though if needed).

So, pick a day, any day this week - it may be an eye-opener for many

Nobody faint! I know I've been AWOL for quite a while but here I am again. I've been extremely bad and managed to gain quite a bit of weight back. I have discovered, like many of you, that this WOE is the only way to manage my weight. I don't really know what got me off track in the first place, but I'm determined to get back on the wagon and stay there. I also plan on spending more time here with all of you. I've been away so long that I'm really behing on what's been going on in all your lives. All my crew is doing well. Dennis is still able to work. His diabetes is really affecting him tho and he's finally decided he needs to see a specialist. I've been telling him that for a while now. Now I have to find one that's on our insurance. The kids are well too. I hope I can catch up with all of you. Missed you and I'm glad to be back.

Deb - I used your recipe for the bagels, same one as before, except I used spelt flour and added some flax seeds. They came out much the same as the last ones although I preferred the ones with the whole wheat. Even though I used the regular yeast this time and gave them two risings they were still very flat. I took them out when I thought they were done, they were brown and crispy on top and passed the 'done' test - hollow sound when tapped on the bottom - but when I cut into them they were still a little doughy inside so put them back in the oven for another 10 minutes. I think I will forget about making bagels. I did make some nice peanut butter oatmeal cookies a couple of days ago which were good, except they got a bit too dark on the bottom. I only ate a couple of those and the rest are in the freezer. I'll probably post that recipe later but I want to make them again first (without burning the bottoms). I'm so good at burning the bottom of my cookies, even when I am sitting there watching them. One minute they look like they are not done and 30 seconds later the darn things are burnt. Maybe I will be successful one day! I'll take you up on that challenge. I'm going to try it to-day. Maybe that will help to keep me in line this evening at my dil's Mom's where I am going for another turkey dinner. If I do screw up too bad I'll just do it tomorrow instead.

Fillise - Good for you not giving in to that cake.

Gotta go and get an early lunch as I have to be out before noon.

Good Monday Morning.

Hope everyone is ready to jump back on track today (if you ventured off over the holiday). It's a new week, a new beginning to a nice result. A healthy, thinner you!

Sat up with DD's last night picking out songs for the Dj. It was a hoot. DD was singing all the songs and they sounded all alike. She likes strange music. The other one wouldn't let her have half the songs she wanted. It was so funny b/c I didn't know hardly any of them. I guess you had to be there, but I think it was a Kodak moment. We don't have too many moments with them together that they are not fighting.

So I went to bed around 11:30 wound up of course and didn't fall asleep until after 1:30. So I'm dragging today.

Kim, we missed you last week. Glad you are back. Yes oats are legal, 1/2 cup uncooked. Just not instant.

Monet, I'm sure you will be able to adapt the matzos ball soup if anyone can. Hope your journey to find them is short.

Rosalie, Have fun at badminton. Don't worry about that scale.

Deb, You must have been joggign this morning. That is a great time. Hope your dad will be ok. Man that is scarry. My DH has huge varicose veins on his one leg. I mean they hang in clumps. It really worries me that he will have a blood clot or stroke from them. Of course he doesn't want to go see about them. As ususal you got some great bargains this weekend. I bet Michael is exctied with that keyboard and mouse. OK I'll do the challenge, but can't do it until tomorrow cause I have eaten already today (cashews that I didn't measure). I'm even gonna count calories too.

Fillise, Good for you doing so well at Easter dinner. You're not alone, I had a handful of chips too. They are my downfall. There is half a bag left. I may just have to pitch them so I'm not tempted. I know you can make it fine to Derby Day. Even though you plan to splurge, I bet it's not too bad. Other than those mint juleps!

Tranquil, Get through today and then we will be with you more the remainder of the week.

Bob, Hope you had a nice birthday.

Have a great day. Be back later.
