Diana it's slowly warming up...it's in the teens tonight and starting to snow...the humidity here on the coast makes the low temps feel MUCH colder

lately I've been starting the day with good intentions and then my eating goes downhill from there.....I think it's from the cold, eating to get or stay warm, wanting carbs more etc...today was valentine's celebrations at school and I ate far too much sweets, had 3 corndogs which NEVER sit well, and too much coffee

Looks like the cold is making its way to almost everyone. We had a few snowed in days but it's all gone now.

Breakfast:
Egg, english muffin sandwich with goat cheese and bacon.
Coffee with milk

Lunch:
Bean burrito

Dinner:
A new recipe for a clam soup. It was so darn good and low calorie! Too bad the sourdough bread on the side was not low calorie.

Total cals 1622

Hubs and I signed up at a gym yesterday and tonight was our first time attempting a workout there. Its been a while! In the past I've always stuck with cardio and classes. This time I want to focus on weights. I felt very wimpy and disoriented but hopefully with a better plan and a checklist I can get a routine going.

Good morning all, up a couple points to 155.1, on track for a good weigh in tomorrow. Snow has started, not sure if I'm going in or not, w're on the edge but still calling for 1-4 and it's 10 right now. Going to have my oatmeal and see how thing look in a half hour or so.

Basically same plan as yesterday except today no wrap and will do exercises.

Stay safe and warm everyone!

Good morning everyone!

I havenít posted for a couple of days. I keep falling asleep early while watching the Olympics.

Diana: thanks for the link. Iíve never heard of that company before. By the way, have you gotten iced in? The weather has been so freaky this year! Hope youíve kept safe and warm.

Larry: thanks for the link to the volumetrics thread. Iíve gotten the book, and Iíve just started reading it. I needed something different because I find I get sooo hungry at times. I actually eat sort of volumetrics style already Ė large amounts of fruits and veggies everyday Ė but Iím sure thereís more I can do.

Radiojane: Wishing you all the best in breaking 373! Just stick with it.

Laciemn: Hope you didnít get hit too hard by the weather. Iím so sorry to hear about your illness. Iím wishing you the best health possible, and lots of courage.

I tried to stay below 1800 calories on Tuesday, but I just couldnít do it. I didnít exercise that day, but still ate 2050 calories. Then yesterday I did a super hard workout that burned nearly 500 calories, and I ate only 1715 calories. Go figure. The scale is staying in the 154ís. Hereís hoping it goes lower soon. Iím going to start experimenting with Volumetrics, and see if that helps me feel satisfied on fewer calories.

Have a good day, everyone!

Good Morning, Everyone!

David Griffin Hi and Welcome to the check-in!

We are getting a late start this morning since it was suppose to get a little worse over night. It appears that we didn't get the worse of it. There were a couple different models the weather people were talking about. Yesterday looked worse than it does this morning.

Last night I added on: Breathing Exercises to Calm the Mind from Yoga for Stress Relief

Calories for yesterday: 1370 +
Weigh In: 162.4
Down: .8

Have a great day!

hi everyone! I'm feeling very blessed to be having such great weather! I'm sorry for everyone who is dealing with cold temps...I hate the cold. I am not too fond of the heat, either. Being from a beach city here in So Cal, I'm super spoiled and picky about the weather...living in the SFV (San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles County) for the past 20 years I still haven't gotten used to the summer heats of 90+.

Today is going to be 82

Ok, on the menu today:

B - blueberry Greek yogurt
L - salad: romaine, slice of deli turkey, 1 hard boiled egg, energy nut mix, honey mustard BH Farms
D - turkey or salmon patty with sauteed zoodles and lite Jarlsberg on top May need a baked potato, too, to keep full and focused for my accounting midterm

Yesterday's food

Breakfast was 1 cup (two servings) of Fiber One cereal with 3/4 cup skim milk and a packet of Sweet N Low.

Lunch was a medium Granny Smith Apple

Afternoon Snack was one more medium Granny Smith Apple

Dinner, I had a huge Volumetrics style serving of pasta. 8 oz dry Dreamfields elbows (that is four servings) to which I added a can of no salt added stewed tomatoes and chopped green bell pepper. I spiced it with Garlic powder, Oregano, Italian seasoning and Sirarcha hot sauce. It was delicious and very filling. My nutrition for the day:

Nothing is totally restricted, however you should eat the most volume from low calorie dense foods. Calorie density is not listed on nutrition labels but you can easily figure it out. Take the calories per serving from the label and divide it by the weight in grams. You will get a number somewhere between 0 for water and 9 for fats. Don't worry about exact numbers close is OK.

Food is divided into four groupings by calorie density.

Category 1 foods very low calorie dense foods less than 0.6
Includes most fruits and vegetables, skim milk, and broth based soups

Category 2 foods low calorie dense foods 0.6 to 1.5
Includes many cooked grains, breakfast cereals with low-fat milk, low-fat meats, beans and legumes, low-fat mixed dishes and salads.

Category 3 foods medium calorie dense foods 1.5 to 4.0
Includes meats, cheeses, high-fat mixed dishes, salad dressings, some snack foods

Category 4 foods High calorie dense foods 4.0 to 9.0
Includes crackers, chips, chocolate candies, cookies, nuts, butter and full-fat condiments

Volumemetrics stresses the need for adequate daily protein and fats but suggests most of the bulk of your foods come from category 1 and/or 2 while at the same time making sure you are getting enough protein and fats but not excessive protein or fat. Do this and your portion size will be larger for any given calorie amount.

By experimenting you can take a high calorie dense food and lower it's density by adding vegetables or water. Take for example Mac and Cheese, very high calorie density but if you start adding vegetables to it the calorie density comes down and you can eat a larger serving.

Hey everyone. I've been busy with work and wedding plans. The trip is booked for the end of November with our wedding on the 27th which is Thanksgiving Day. Odd I know but there was no way around it..long story. I haven't flown since 1995 so this is HUGE for me. I'm very afraid of flying but I'm feeling determined.

Turks and Caicos has been on my bucket list for a looooog time. I figured what better place?

I'll be leaving for the gym in a few.

Thanks roadbikerchick! I'm in remission now, so I don't struggle the way I used to, I just have residual weakness around of the proximal muscles. Doing pretty well today. I got a lot of studying done today, although I'm afraid I'm still quite unclear on some of the calculus concepts I'm trying to learn.

I didn't count, but ate less than usual. I was still 160.0 this morning. For breakfast, I had half a can of vegetable beef soup with added spinach, cheese and a roll. For lunch, I had beans and rice with cheese and salsa. For dinner, I am having steamed salmon with rice(and butter) with added spinach.
