Question MARCH 2018--Same old

Hi!

Hope everyone is doing great!

Stirs: I have never eaten bison. Does that taste good?

Jen: In my youth, my dad and I would each eat a row of fudge at a time...
I still have a lot of problems with desserts...for example, if I make a batch of oatmeal cookies or a pan of fudge. I used to have a deep freeze in the basement and that helped...but I have no problem eating frozen dessert.

Flower: I do watch Cats From ****. I wish it had been on years ago. The cat behaviorist is excellent and so intuitive. He has a new show about cats and dogs. Career-wise, he has carved out a nice niche for himself...and has probably saved a lot of cat lives.

Diana: I hope you doctor is able to help you out. My TSH is lower than ever, but I don't notice an increase in energy or faster wt. loss.

Food was okay yesterday except for two strips of buttermilk chicken, some jellybeans, and a cup of chocolate almond milk. I need to eat the jellybeans much slower. I need to only have a couple sips of the chocolate milk.

Exercise was good....the usual home exercises, 20 min. on the arc trainer and 50 minutes leisurely workout in the pool.

225/212.5/213/210 Stuck. At least I am not up today!!!!!

I watched some gardening shows from Great Britain on Netflix. Every once in a while, you see some plants you've never seen before.

Doitforme. I am not worried about "end times". I am worried about misguided human beings who may well pursue the destruction of humanity and this earth in an effort to bring them about.

Teri, I tasted bison for the first time last weekend and it tastes almost like ground beef with a hint of another taste, it is better for you than beef, lower in fat and calories but also expensive. Walmart had it on sale for 7.90 a lb.

Hello to all!
WI up 1lb 168.0 not sure how that happened other than I must have ate some sodium somewhere...no other reason. Steps 14,500 more or less walked three parks yesterday hiding my rocks.

Today nothing but errands and laundry, I don't know why I put laundry off until Sunday and try to play catch up...my subconscious maybe hates folding clothes???? I am hoping to get another good walk in today then I picked at my workout for tomorrow ugh HIIT and lower body weight training. Don't get me wrong I know cardio is important but still...just saying

flower, yes I do live in the Pacific Northwest but I am south of Seattle and at a higher elevation so I tend to get more snow and ice then the Seattle area. I don't think people realize too that Seattle is very 'hilly' very similar to the hills in San Francisco same with parts of Tacoma. I can be going up a hill in either downtown's and be stopped at a red light and can not see the road in front of me because it is so steep LOL needless to say when it gets icy and snowing there are just some places you don't drive.

More later

Hi Everyone!

Let's just say that I had a bad day. Poor food choices and no workout. I am really struggling mentally with everything. Tomorrow is a new day and I will move forward from there. I will weigh in again on Saturday. I just don't want to deal with it all. My goal, like I said above is to try to incorporate some longer workouts, again.

Rest well.

Hey all
I read posts. But am on the iPad. So I will Put off doing personals.

Sunday Morning, gained 1 lb. idk why. Am feeling discouraged. Less than 3 weeks before I see the relatives.

I have not mentioned this, but I have a problem with one of my feet. So it's difficult to use my personal mini trampoline. Going to again try Jin shin Jytusu. There are 2 mudras for weight loss. But neither worked for me when I used them 8 months ago.

Hoping everyone has an awesome (or good) Monday

Good Morning, Everyone!

Flower Don't be discouraged. I have enough of that for both of us.

I'm just putting my thoughts for today out there.
Today is a new day. You would think that I would be in a better place since figuring out what is wrong with me. But it's almost like I am in mourning or rebelling that I can't have the things that make me react. I was talking with someone about it last night. She said that it's understandable what I am going through. Not taking into account the unhealthy foods that I can't have, it's the healthy stuff that I can no longer have that I am struggling with. So, I just need to pick myself up and get back to what I need to do. Just now there was a local PSA on TV from a Dr., who is also a Pastor. He just said "God wants you to be healthy". Today's devotion also speaks to me. When I was originally trying to lose weight and thought I had a food allergy, it was a bit easier since I looked at it like food was the enemy. Then I went to the allergist and they said there was no food allergy that it was the angioedema. Soon after that I got to my goal weight and then the struggle began. Food was no longer the enemy (no allergy). So today's devotion really speaks to me. I do have to look at it like food is the enemy. For me it is.

Last night I did: Full Body Stretch (standing)
This Morning: Oxycise Commuter Workout

Calories unknown/ No weigh in

Have a Blessed day and a great start to your week!

Copied from Crosswalk Devotions for Dieters
March 26

Deuteronomy 33:27
The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee: and shall say, 'Destroy them.'

It's strange to think of food as 'the enemy,' but that's the best way to look at it if we want to be effective in our diets. Taking off the pounds is a battle. In every battle we need ammunition. As Christ-ians, our ammunition comes from the Spirit of God that dwells within us all the time. God becomes our fortress; our refuge against the assaults of fattening foods. If we think we can fight the battle alone, we will find it doesn't take long before we tire. At those times we will wish we had someone to take over. Thank the Lord that God is there, and He never tires of fighting alongside His children.

Today's thought: Dieting makes losers winners!

Good morning ladies, so I had fun driving around in my car to church and taking my kids out to eat. I thought I posted when I got home but I did take a nap so must have been dreaming...

My favorite pastor stepped down, so our bible study had been cancelled indefinitely. This Broke My heart. I don't know what is going on in his life but I am praying for him.
We areally just human, but God is bigger on the inside of us when we struggle. "God with us" That's the message of the cross. God had to come down from heaven and help us meet Him because we are just so stubborn and lost. Thank You Lord. A fallen brother is only a reminder of how desperate the world really is.

I am dealing with a lot of emotional stuff about a lot of things. My ex has my boys for a whole week AND he has them Easter weekend. I did get in my feelings about that and other issues. I really need to learn to STAY AWAY from the kitchen after disheartening texts...it would also help not to buy stuff at Walmart when I'm stressed.

Still I have a friend whose stepson was in a life threatening car wreck and they are struggling financially. My problem's are so much less than what they could be and for that I'm Thankful.

I did eat Swedish fish mindlessly. This was a childhood favorite. I used to walk 5 blocks or more in New York to go to the store to buy them for pennies I found lying around...even after the prices went up, the guy still sold them to me for a penny a fish.

I started on the donuts but caught myself and walked away. Later, the cramping drove me to chips....I also snapped out of that and put them up.

I tend to eat more when I'm in pain. Kind of like a baby whose tummy is gassy and full but they can't tell gas pain for hunger pain so they keep trying the bottle only to realize that bottle doesn't help.

I feel so bloated and food logged. I ate mainly veggies. Love the green beans, broccoli and mushrooms. The mushrooms had a little chicken in them. Then the sushi. I only eat California rolls, I love to take ginger slices, dip them in shrimp sauce and lay it on top of the sushi and eat it that way.

Then of course dessert. I could have done without the mini square coffee cakes.

Not too bad. Skipped dinner. Might be why I started snacking later...

Stlr, where carbs go, water goes...carb cycling is a good thing too.

Flower, yes carbs and sodium=influx of water. It takes water to release water...so I will be drinking more. I am in SC too and my face was cold and it felt like winter still.
I too love cats. I love all animals really, I just don't like pet hair. It makes me itch and I get pet hair splinters on my feet (the hair embeds in my skin????) Way to go on your cards! And good dodges on the food cart. I can see this visually when you describe it. Would make a good episode for dieters "The Food Cart dilemma"

Granny, practicals for me in nursing were the worse. Real time pass/fail as you call it. My heart rate and BP would be sky high as my peers and instructor gathered around me. Being one of the top students did not ever ease my anxiety. I am praying your hard work pays off and the wind is right. Really what can you do when the results of the training ultimately ride on the dogs response? In situations like this, I lean on the sovereignty of God and trust His plan will be carried out. I remember walking around heavy pregnant with Thomas my last semester of nursing school. So close to the finish line. If I went into labor, I would likely not finish, if I didn't go into labor, I would have a planned c section, that was another obstacle to getting my RN...I prayed everyday mostly because my mom WAS ALSO pregnant her last semester of nursing school and she DIDN'T finish...so I just prayed "Lord if it is Your Will I become a nurse, help me finish this". I had my last exam was on May 3rd. My c section was originally scheduled for that day. I got an A in the class so I didn't have to take the final. My surgery was moved to May 5 two weeks before the exam. I was in the hospital for my pinning on May 6th but I walked across the stage on May 12th for graduation. I had to overcome the NCLEX review. I missed the paid one day review because I couldn't sit, but my school paid for a more expensive computer course to help me at home....and then June 18 I passed the NCLEX and became an RN.

I shared that to show obstacles arent a No, but a way to show you "I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me"

Nancy, yes bet it was sodium. I hate putting away clothes, can fold them all day

Novangel, I have also heard of the appetite suppressant nature of wellbutrin

Diana, taking thyroid hormone also never made me feel bettet. Adrenal burn out is a huge contributor to Thyou'd problems and I started feeling better taking Ashwaghanda and Holy Basil...I was able to stick to my diet more and had more energy.

Thank you so much for your devotionals!!! His mercies are NEW every morning

Terri, lol. I wish I had a basement to banish stuff to. I'd probably get great toned legs going up and down those stairs!!!

I'm going to try to do a low but not 500 calorie day I think...

Talk to you other girls later!

Smile MARCH 2018--I don't get it!

Hi!

Sorry you guys, I mean gals, are having problems. I just got bounced out before I sent this note...that really annoys me!

Stirs: Thanks for the info about bison. Maybe I will buy some from Walmart. Wonder if it is cheaper at Sam's Club...

Diana: I love the word manana...because there is another tomorrow and a new month is coming up! There is so much hope and freshness!

Flower: Sorry about your foot. I had an little shoulder problem for almost a year that really caused a lot of problems. I have a sore leg today. I hope it is nothing. I hope my knee is fine. I really need to get this weight off. Oh, I have a mini-tramp...but I have a problem with being overly bodacious...besides the knee problem, if you get my bounce.

I have had an off food day: 2 slices of lemon merange pie, (I can't even spell!), a couple sips of chocolate milk, and I lost track of the jelly beans. Nyahhhhh! But I lost a half pound.

I walked up a steeper hill. But my leg is aching. Must do the pool for a few days. I hope the injury is temporary.

225/212.5/210 I think I am back on track. (fingers crossed!)

Have a great day!

Good morning. 185.2 bounce up from yesterday's low. Today is planned. Yesterday I was very very busy but just missed getting in my steps.

Stripping down my personal laptop as it is beyond me to fix it and I am going to have to take it in. Well no time today. Gotta go.

Cool Beans. Today I did my little fat monitor and it told me I am no longer Obese, just overweight My BMI is 29.9

Jendiet I am unfamiliar with the tannin content of Holy Basil and ashwagandha. I am really trying to avoid tannins as much as I can due to the pain it causes me. Are you familiar it they contain tannins?

Jendiet, Swedish fish, yumm. SO my weight is the same as last week but I saw 206 in the middle of the week and it didn't stick. I didn't eat too great over the weekend and didn't get much exercise so I have to get back on track this week, I really wanted to see onederland by April 1st but I don't think it's going to happen. I just had an apple and yogurt and going to workout now, I hope everyone has a great day.

Teri, I say "you guys" too. I used to do a mini tramp too. One of my favorite exercisers and I would strap my bodegas down as well. My mom is EXXXXTRA bodacious and has always had that problem. Those refeeds are important in keeping your bmr up. I don't count jelly beans. I actually had to go back and RECOUNT the Swedish fish. I ate 20. I pray your leg stops hurting

Granny, that is an awesome milestone!!! Sorry about the laptop and the bounce up. But it is the life of the dieter...it WILL go back down and lower.

Stlr, you are making awesome progress...that 206 will be back! Losing weight is hard and you are doing well.

Diana, sorry ashwaghanda is rich in tannins.

That is awesome, grannynancy! I am not always a "fan" of BMI because it really does not tell the whole story of a human being. For example, outliers (i.e. if you are taller than average, or shorter than average) often fall outside the BMI scale for no reason.

My weekend was challenging - but not due to overeating or bad food choices, more because my teenage son had his wisdom teeth surgery on Friday, and I ended up missing all my workouts Friday, Saturday AND Sunday to take care of him. Sigh.

But, today is Monday. And I LOVE Mondays! I love how it feels to have a brand new week laid out. To see my food-charting to be "on plan". To see all the exercise I am going to do to make sure I manage my stress and sleep well. It excites me!

I will workout after work, today. I bet I sleep WAY better tonight!

What about Holy Basil/Tulsi? Does it have tannins? Years ago I took and/or drank tea that had these.

Do you have a place where you look for this type of info on tannins?
