  • GOOD LUCK!!!
    I didnt mean to cut calories.. I wanna stay around 1200 and then about 100 or so from my coffee intake. For the month of August my goal is to be consistant and really begin exercising and get more sleep.. weight wise I would like to get under 190 or really close. 2 pounds a week is ideal..
  • Thanks, I am starting the calorie cycling up again to see how it works. Today is 1424 gonna try to make it. This is the week of our church Countywide Revival so dinner will be early like 5 o'clock starting on Tuesday. I'm hoping to come home and not eat.
    That is gonna definitely take some
    I'm a relief usher Tuesday and Wednesday and I usher on Thursday and Friday. So I'll exercise in the mornings. Busy week for me. I tried oatmeal again. I ate it for snack after church with cinnamon and no sugar maple. It's not that it taste bad I don't like the texture. I ate half of what I made ... a big plus for me

    Once you implement exercise I'm sure you'll see great results. You've done pretty well without exercise. Get that water in and all of your sleep and you'll be right there with me YOU CAN DO IT!!

    I JUST REALIzED THAT AS I WAS TYPING... I sure like pickles
  • LOL on the pickles, you like tomato too. I am hoping today is better than yesterday. I know calorie wise I think I am doing better. I had a good breakfast and a pretty good lunch. I bought some blueberries to try out and went back to the menu in Women's World and found out that I am supposed to eat a cup full. They taste like dirt so I know I can't eat a cup of them. What do I do? I was gonna try Dr. Oz low carb diet for a week. Breakfast consist of a low carb shake or a 2 egg scramble with 1/2 cup veggies and 2tbsp cheese. Lunch 4oz fish or chicken, 2 cups of mixed salad w/2 tbsp regular dressing <--sounds yummy, and 3 whole wheat crackers, Dinner is basically the same but you put the meat on a low carb tortilla, with salsa and bell pepper, 1tbsp of cheese Snack 100 cal pack and 1 hard boiled egg or 2oz cheese. But what do I do about the berries? Gonna have fish for dinner and a salad should be ok huh!
  • yeah I think you will be alright if you really dont like the blueberries but I have had some bad ones too that tasted like dirt..with raspberries too.. Its just one or two but the ruin the taste for the whole mouth full.. Maybe find a low cal recipe you can throw them in ( I will look for you too). I am about to go buy a new battery for my scale and/or a new scale. I can believe I have no kids and its only 5:30! Im excited. I was thinking fish for dinner too but I bought some ground turkey to make chili. I like ground turkey meat in food like spaghetti or hambrger helper.. it kinda tastes like beef.. I have tricked my kids in the past so it must be ok.. Ill be back later with my menu for the day.. so far so good except I had some gummy peachy rings earlier so I called it my snack!!
  • I don't like ground turkey when I make it. I have had it when other people make it with chili and spaghetti but it taste funny when I make it. I have used ground chicken which I like a lot and they don't complain but it's been a while. You know me and the texture thing I don't think I can put the blueberries in anything maybe I can make some mini muffins, hmmm, that's a thought. I want some potatoes or something something starchy what do I do? I am so looking forward to not being in here during the evening for a week. I need to get pass this hump in my journey. I've come to far to screw this up.
    Gonna use that
  • Where are you and Kristen and Tamika? Speaking of which where is my friend Kiya?

    Well I download three new programs to my BB last night. One is fatsecret.com, the other is an exercise tracker (which I used this morning during my walk) and the other is a weight tracker. I wish I had known about the exercise tracker a long time ago. It works using the GPS function on my BB so I know my distance, calories burned pace, and time. fun fun fun I already went for my walk. My phone said, 2.14 miles in 40min and 34sec burned 164 calories average speed 3.16mph.

  • I thought my cell phone froze for good but it came back after an hour! Im having a hard day with hunger.. I wanna nibble on stuff!! I havent but i really have the urge to...
  • Hey save a 1/2 cup of the chili, freeze it. Next time I come up I'll get it. Heck save a cup then I have it for two meals. I am having a pretty good day. Scale said 177.4 down .6 woohoo the scale is moving. I am walking in the mornings now since I have revival all week, it's not too bad. I almost didn't go this morning because of the rain, but I got back so late last night, I didn't want to get up. I weighed at my normal time so I know the number is good, but I wonder what it would have said had I ate dinner at my normal time. hmmmm My food hasn't been bad today not sure what I want for dinner though. May eat exactly what I had yesterday, that's a thought. Well don't give in to the extra eating that's what I did for a few days then I got mad at myself. LOL on the celery I only like it in tuna, chicken salad and potato salad. (don't eat potato salad any more) Thanksgiving is gonna be really interesting. I refuse to jepardise all that I have done for one day (pat on the back). Well need to go eat so I can get ready. My toe was killing me last night and this morning. I'll be so glad when the toenail comes off. Have a great evening. I'll be back tomorrow
