Hi Chunka

Way to go on your measurements! Are you working out too?

As for frozen veggies, what I like is these little boxes of Green Giant brand. They come in different combinations. They are "sauced" to various degrees and you can microwave them. Fast and easy, just trying to get a little healthier in my habits.

I have been wanting to make a sautee with garlic and frozen spinach. I read that spinach offers a lot of iron but then on all the frozen spinach at the store it says only 4% iron. I wonder what gives?

Syckgirlsfv The scale I use and just re-purchased is Ozeri. It's 32.00 now, down from 50.00 a few yrs back. Re accuracy, when I was getting weighed weekly by a coach, I compared it and the weights were in synch. (The coach had a state of the art medical thing, maybe Dexa?). Then I compared to the one w use at the hospital to weigh patients--also "state of the art" but just lbs.

I never compared the fat & water %s. I didn't care much as long as the weight was going down. But I always looked at all the numbers and saw a consistency. So when my water of fat %s changed, I had confidence in the pattern if not the absolute number--does that make sense? So if my weight went up but fat was same, water number higher, I had some confidence that I was retaining water, not gaining fat.

For real accuracy, I think you have to do water displacemnt or a very pricey electronic thing, and even the latter isn't that accurate. So I go with what my scale tells me, and use fit of clothes and little areas on the body, to corroborate. (Face thighs)

There are other scales out there that might be better, but I just went with the familiar. One thing is that I always take two weights. The 2nd one is always about 1-2 lbs lower, and it stays at that number no matter if I weigh a 3rd & 4th time.

thanks..and of course you're right! I'll look forward to that!

I just succumbed to a binge. It is so stupid, I'm a little embarassed to say what it was....lime corn chips with chocolate ice cream. IDK what came over me. I'm trying to decide if I just want to move on, or if I should not eat the rest of my planned menu for the day.

MonteCristo I don't think there's anything wrong with just moving on and eating your healthy food. I have read that restricting/punishing yourself can cause more damage. Whatever you decide to do, wishing you the best and tomorrow's a new day

Nicoley Thanks for the support! That scale is definitely fun for us data freaks lol! Syckgirl Loooks like the same one, and you found a better price
Btw should be used on a hard, level surface, but not stored in the bathroom. So I store mine under my bed and drag it out each day to the bathroom just to weigh. You need to weigh barefoot.

MonteCristo I agree with kelijpa, start fresh on your plan without cutting back. Mostly be kind to yourself--it works

Snapple Nice job on your day!

Enjoy the movie Diana!

Hi, everyone! I hope you are all doing well today!

I tried to post here earlier in the day, logged in twice and the site lost my post!

So, instead of a long post with personals (like I had typed before), this one will be short as I don't have the time to re-do it.

Today - calories 1,455; carb 78; fat 68; protein 118; sodium 2,561; sugar 36.

Exercise - 45 minutes cardio; burned 260 calories. Strength training, 20 minutes, lower body. Stretching 15 minutes.

September analysis - lost 7.2 pounds, so close to my 8 pound goal for the month. I had an unexpected 2 pound drop from yesterday, hope it it a real drop. I am 2.5 pounds from being below 200, a weight I haven't seen since 2007. My goal was to workout 3 times a week, strength training and cardio. I completed all of the workouts, except two: one, when I was negotiating to buy a house, and two, when I didn't feel like it.

October goals - weight: to lose 8 pounds. Working out: to add a day of cardio. So, my goal is to do 4 days of cardio and 3 days of strength training.

Last night went well. I abstained from bar food (garlic bread, Texas toast, country gravy, fried jalapeno balls), alcohol (despite buying drinks for my friends), and cupcakes. It was worth it because I woke up this morning to a 2 pound loss! Tonight is the weekly karaoke night. I am planning for two drinks and have banked calories for them.

Greetings and support to everyone! Hope you all have a great and successful weekend!

Default Friday's Food ...

Hi Everyone!

Had a busy day yesterday and didn't have chance to check-in. Just thought I'd pop along with my last September post. Unfortunately, I didn't manage to reach my September goal, but I have had a little loss this week of 1.4lbs. So, I've had a good talk to myself and hopefully I'll do better during October!

Friday's Food ...


Breakfast ~ Missed it! Went to friend's for coffee and she cut me a slice of cake that she'd made! I didn't like to refuse it!

Lunch ~ Mixed Green Salad with Avocado, Tomato and Feta

Dinner ~ Roast Pork Loin with Carrots, Parsnips, Brussels Sprouts, Baby Potato and Gravy

Beverage
~ Too much wine!

Keep up the good work everyone and good luck for a successful October!
