Jen How far do you live from Greenville? I know I asked before, but I forgot. I saw in our local paper Greenville is getting a Trader Joe's. I wish we would get one here!

3 chunks watermelon
1 pc chicken
3 bites ramen

Today: try to be on plan again w lots of water (water goal 1 gallon)

Felt a bit better today, got into work for 7.30am for a conference call with head office (which is 2 timezones ahead, ugh), flitted around the office catching up with the stuff I had hanging over from last week when I was on leave, left work at 3.45pm, went and did the grocery shopping, filled the Wysteria-mobile up with petrol, got home about 20 minutes ago and am now chillaxing with some Criminal Minds. Shopping counts as exercise, lol.

Anyway, food:

Breakfast:
2 Oatybix biscuit thingies with a tub of natural fat free yoghurt and some maple syrup for a bit of sweetness and a cup of strong black coffee to wake me up before the meeting.

Snack:
Apple. Om nom nom. It was particularly good!

Lunch:
Brussels pate and salad with a smidgeon of dressing, small (and I mean like fun size) packet of Butterkist popcorn and a bottle of Lucozade energy drink.

Dinner:
Currently nomming on 2 gluten free crispbreads with brie. Mmmm. I might finish the tub of Ben & Jerry's later, dunno, lol. Oh, I've been bad today. But you know what, I don't really care!

Jen I live in Charleston, so the new Trader Joe's won't be an option for me. I hope we get one here one day. Our only healthy stores are Whole Foods and Earth Fare. Both of them are about 15-20 miles away. I will normally go to one of those once or twice a month. I have heard Trader Joe's is alot cheaper than Whole Foods. I would even be happy if we got a Whole Foods on my side of town.

Really bummed today ... I have weighed the same thing for 3 days. 182.6. How do I get off this plateau? I am thinking my calorie intake with my calories burned is too low but not sure. I think I ate a little more so far today, but not sure. Haven't had dinner yet, but I feel stuffed. Just had a f/f chocolate pudding with cool whip and some watermelon. I'll be back later to post my food for today.

I saw your other post at the daily weigh-in thread about your calories. It seems like your calories should be fine. Three days isn't long to be at one weight. Maybe give it a week and then re-evaluate. Are you getting close to TTOM? Are you eating higher sodium foods? So many things contribute to our daily fluctuations or lack of. I would really give it a week and see what happens.

Diana thank you, I hope it's ok to say I can always count on you to help me. Thank you ... you know it's funny last month I came on, on the 13th and only stayed on for 3 days. Sunday I started spotting and have been off and on since. Went to church came back I had cramps. Still spotting but that's it. I have always been irregular since age 11. 33 years later no difference. About the sodium I am really careful about my salt intake since reading the post on here, I'll learning quite a bit. I can tell by my wedding rings they get uncomfortably tight when I have had too much salt. I'm gonna go ahead and take your advice and give it until Saturday and see what happens. I was thinking if I increase my calories, I'll feel like I'm feeling right now, stuffed and bloated. Not a good feeling at all. However I have put a second hole in my belt so I am losing inches. I sure wish I had taken my measurements when I first started.

Do you weigh in every day? I find that I fluctuate too much during the week and that stresses me out... so I make myself weigh in only once a week. Maybe you could try switching up your exercise? Good luck!

milk, skim, 1 cup
oatmeal, 1/2 cup
flaxseed, 1 Tbsp
1 grapefruit

1 apple

4 cups lettuce
4 Tbsp beans
1.5 oz light feta cheese
2 Tbsp pickle slices
2 Tbsp olive oil vinaigrette

2 cups cherries
1 banana

Fritatta:
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 c egg whites
- 1/2 c skim milk
- 1 c artichoke hearts
- 1/2 c broccoli
- 1.5 oz feta cheese
- 1 sm red potato
- 1 1/2 c asparagus

Exercise: running 20 mins for the first time in... like a year or so? gosh, I'm so out of shape!

I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!

love, 3 days is a little frustrating. I feel your pain. I got stuck at a certain weight for 3 months! But i was losing inches, so whatever it was--the measurements kept me motivated...until i got overwhelmed with life problems again! But take those measurements!

Natalia 6 weeks wow, you all are good. I would have probably given up. How did you tweak things? I'll be patient though

LoveAcat, I do weigh in every day, most of the time more than once or twice. I've gotten really good about guessing my correct when I re-weigh. I am trying to do some other things in my mind, but they aren't happening yet. I do better when I have someone to work out with and so far the only thing I have right now are walking partners.

Jen wow 3 months. I guess I need to stop whinning, huh! Yeah I was happy to see that my jeans had quite a bit of room. They were my favorite pair. I don't have money to get new clothes right now so thank goodness for freecycle. I'll just ask for a few items and hope that I get them. And I will definitely take my measurements in the morning.

Well thanks, talk to you all tomorrow. I know I said I'd be patient but I do hope that scale is friendly to me in the morning Good night
