Default Weekly TG Chat - Week of June 14 thru June 20

Hey! Where was everyone last week?? No one posted - even me - lol. I sure hope we have more traffic in here this week Coffee's on!

Well ... we went to the casino Sat nite and I won $750 and hubby won $150 .. then we went last nite too and again I won another $750 and hubby won $130. It seems I'm on a "good luck streak" ... that's a good thing.

We're suppose to have severe thunderstorms today so guess I'll go and get the rest of my flowers planted. Hope to hear from you guys soon!

Oh yes, tomorrow (June 15) is Sharon's birthday ...

I'm popping in to say Hi! Can't stay too long - we are at the end of our fiscal so things are hectic. I will also be away for the rest of the week, so the boss is on his own. Oh well, I'm sure he'll be phoning me at home.

Hope everyone is doing well. Take care.

Howdy Ladies!

Just popping in for a quick hello. Nico is teething again and it's not been fun. *sigh* he just started to scream....It's Tylenol time!

I received this in my e-mail, just thought I would share...

Gotta run!



Copied from Ediets "Mr. Bad Food"

Here's my top 10 world’s worst foods to be avoided at any cost. Brand names aren’t listed, but you will know which stuff to steer clear of next time you’re making the rounds in the grocery store.

1) Don’t Do Donuts!
Check it out: white flour, white sugar and deep fat fried. ‘Nuf said.

2) Marginal Margarine!
Mostly just dyed, flavored shortening, margarine is the king of the hydrogenated oils. There are new brands without the trans fats, although they are marginal at best as an alternative to real butter. At least we know what butter is.

3) Cereal Killer!
I’m talking about the artificially dyed, flavored, chocked full of sugar and guaranteed to make the milk turn purple in the bowl kind. That’s not cereal. That’s chemical warfare.

4) Thirst for Ad-venture!
Why would we drink sports drinks the same color as toilet bowl cleaner and antifreeze? Could have something to do with the marketing, I think.

5) You’re Toast!
Speaking of marketing, check out the wide variety of “toaster pastries” available. Defying logic on all fronts, the two inches worth of ingredients on the packages contain things I bet you couldn’t identify in a line-up.

6) Chip on Your Shoulder!
Another fatty, too salty and artificially flavored, colored and enhanced product, most chips are a nutritional nightmare and pile on the pounds, while completely ignoring anything having to do with nutrition.

7) Chickening Out!
Chicken nuggets are a happy meal for most children but plenty of adults like them, too. But the sorry truth is that most all of these commercially prepared, deep-fried pieces of poultry are paltry in the nutrition department and contain a lot of ingredients you want to avoid (like hydrogenated oils).

8) Pop Goes Your Waistline!
Soft drinks are among the worst of the worst. Nine teaspoons of sugar per can, calcium-robbing phosphorus and a pound packer, this is one drink to pour down the drain.

9) Don’t Hand Me That Baloney!
Bologna and its kin, the hot dog, are made from who-knows-what, sodium nitrates (known carcinogens) and enough fat to lube your Buick. This one belongs in the dog house.

10) Bad Cracker Habit!
Unless you get them at a health food store, crackers aren’t the healthy snack they are cracked up to be. Just basically white flour and hydrogenated oils, the list gets worse the more “colorful” and “flavorful” the cracker. Take a crack at whole grain bread instead.

How is everyone? I know you lovely lurkers are out there Come in and say hello...we don't bite.

Sharon- I hope you had a fabulous Birthday!

CJ- Send some of that luck my way! You have always been alucky one at casinos and bingo...I tend to invest my money with no returns! I hope your storms aren't bad! Thanks for keeping the coffee on...I'm still breastfeeding and mine needs to be decaf I should be done in a month and then "HELLO REAL COFFEE!"

Peggy- I hope your fiscal year end went well. If your boss keeps calling, don't answer the phone! How are you feeling? How did your surgery go?

Well ladies, I'm off to do some laundry. I hope you all have a great day and wonderful weekend!

love to all-

I forgot to post this! I received this in my e-mail and thought it was funny.



Dave Barry
How Did We Survive Without Low-Carb Diets?
The Denver Post
Sunday, March 28, 2004

I probably shouldn't admit this to you younger readers,
but when my generation was your age, we did some pretty stupid
things. I'm talking about taking CRAZY risks. We drank water right
from the tap. We used aspirin bottles that you could actually open with
your bare hands. We bought appliances that were not festooned with
helpful safety warnings such as, "DO NOT BATHE WITH THIS TOASTER."

But for sheer insanity, the wildest thing we did was -
prepare to be shocked - we deliberately ingested carbohydrates.

I know, I know. It was wrong. But we were young and
foolish, and there was a lot of peer pressure. You'd be at a party,
and there would be a lava lamp blooping away, and a Jimi Hendrix
record playing (a "record" was a primitive compact disc that operated by
static electricity). And then, when the mood was right, somebody
would say: "You wanna do some 'drates?" And the next thing you
know, there'd be a bowl of pretzels going around, or crackers,
or even potato chips, and we'd put these things into our mouths
and just...EAT them.

I'm not proud of this. My only excuse was that we were ignorant.

It's not like now, when everybody knows how bad
carbohydrates are, and virtually every product is advertised as being
"low-carb," including beer, denture adhesives, floor wax, tires, life
insurance and Viagra.

Back then, we had no idea. Nobody did! Our own MOTHERS gave us bread!

Today, of course, nobody eats bread. People are terrified
of all carbohydrates, as evidenced by the recent mass robbery at
a midtown Manhattan restaurant, where 87 patrons turned their
wallets over to a man armed only with a strand of No. 8 spaghetti. ("Do
what he says! He has pasta!") The city of Beverly Hills has been
evacuated twice this month because of reports - false, thank heavens -
that terrorists had put a bagel in the water supply.

But as I say, in the old days we didn't recognize the
danger of carbohydrates. We believed that the reason you got fat
was from eating "calories," which are tiny units of measurement
that cause food to taste good. When we wanted to lose weight, we
went on low- calorie diets in which we ate only inedible foods such as
celery, which is actually a building material, and grapefruit,
which is nutritious but offers the same level of culinary
satisfaction as chewing on an Odor Eater.

The problem with the low-calorie diet was that a normal
human could stick to it for, at most, four hours, at which point he
or she would have no biological choice but to sneak out to the garage
and snork down an entire bag of Snickers, sometimes without
removing the wrappers. So nobody lost weight, and everybody felt
guilty all the time. Many people, in desperation, turned to disco.

But then along came the bold food pioneer who invented
the Atkins Diet: Dr. Something Atkins. After decades of research on
nutrition and weight gain - including the now-famous Hostess Ding
Dong Diet Experiment, which resulted in a laboratory rat the size
of a minivan - Dr. Atkins discovered an amazing thing: Calories don't
matter! What matter are carbohydrates.

Dr. Atkins' discovery meant that - incredible though it
seemed - as long as you avoided carbohydrates, you could, without
guilt, eat high- fat, high-calorie foods such as cheese, bacon, lard, pork
rinds and whale. You could eat an entire pig, as long as the pig
had not recently been exposed to bread.

At first, like other groundbreaking pioneers such as
Galileo and Eminem, Dr. Atkins met with skepticism, even hostility.
The low- calorie foods industry went after him big time. The
Celery Growers Association hired a detective to - yes - stalk him. His
car tires were repeatedly slashed by what police determined to be
shards of Melba toast.

But Dr. Atkins persisted, because he had a dream - a
dream that, some day, he would help the human race by selling it 427
million diet books. And he did, achieving vindication for his diet
before his tragic demise in an incident that the autopsy report
listed as "totally unrelated to the undigested 28-pound bacon
cheeseburger found in his stomach."

But the Atkins Diet lives on, helping millions of
Americans to lose weight. The irony is, you can't tell this by looking at
actual Americans, who have, as a group, become so heavy that
North America will soon be underwater as far inland as Denver. Which
can only mean one thing: You people are still sneaking Snickers. You
should be ashamed of yourselves! Got any more?

Default Hello

I used to be on this thread a few years ago. My, what changes!! Now I have to learn all over again it is so totally different!! I hope I will keep trying because I'm trying to just eat properly and not nibble (oh, SO hard ) and thought I'd like to be in this chat again. Not sure I'll be able to handle the newness, but I'll keep trying.

Also, I meant to say that it doesn't seem as if folks are "chatting" as much as they used to. Am I right or just impatient

Just dropping in quickly...

I finally got out of bed this morning after my surgery last week. I thought that I would be back to work this morning, but there were a few complications with the surgery that I had not expected I would need to recoup from. Oh well, it has been nice to sleep for 4 days.

Hubby has been trying to stuff food into me, but I haven't eaten much. Lost a few pounds, but I would have expected to lose more. Oh well. I will get back OP either tonight or tomorrow and decide when I will go back to exercising...will need to feel better than I am right now, though.

Hope everyone has a great week this week. I will try to check in a few times, but can't promise anything.

Take care.
