Hi Turtles,
Hoping to see Nancy over here. I am determined to reach goal this year. Can it be done? Of course. I've learned so much over the years and need to kick it all into place now.

Wishing you all a : at your next WI. Keep on keepin' on and chime in when you can!

Thank you for starting the thread!
Well I needed this today. Yesterdays WI up .6!!! My own fault I knew I had not really gone over my points but......the adult beverages (my nemesis ) was my downfall. So this morning all wine is now gone as well as the homemade fudge that I had in the garage since Christmas. gone gone gone.

I have my meals (main meal in the evening) planned out this week. Lunches will be veggie stir fry with brown rice, breakfasts will be choices of hard boiled eggs, steel cut oats or homemade FF greek yogurt with blackberryies. Snacks I have prepped fresh pineapple, cucumber slices that I will dip in Bolthouse dressing and possibly some popcorn.

I am using the purple plan and I don't mind prepping my meals, Thankfully my DH is open to just about all foods and will eat what I prepare. Now on nights that I have whole wheat pasta he will use regular, but he does not mind the brown rice.

back later!

Hi Turtles,
Nancy, you're the best for chiming in. Thank you! I'll see if I can get Gail back here. I too am on the Purple plan and find I can make it work.
I like the Barilla whole wheat pasta and now I'm looking for recipes to make a casserole with brown rice. It's weird...…….I like almost all foods so that makes adapting my plan easier. However, I like almost all foods. Now I have to work on eating foods I like so I won't "go on the hunt" to find more appealing foods once I've eaten.

Have a great day, week, etc. I am determined to reach goal this year. I have about 50# to go, so it won't be an easy challenge, but it is doable.
Judy

Well good morning/afternoon 'turtles' vs 'chickes' LOL not sure what picture in my mind I want to associatate with....think I would rather be the pictres of 'dimple free, wrinkle free, slendar waist grandma'

I weight everyday for accountablitly and this am I was up 1.4lbs!!!! I know what I can point my finger too. Darn sodium, and a bag of microwave popcorn and glass of vino last night. but stayed within my budget.
This am was at the gym for my cardio. I am holding off starting back up with weights until my knee decides it likes me again

So last night I used my 1pt choclate protein powder (not ww...bit to $$ for me-costco is my go to for this) to make GF-Chocolate-Peanut Butter No-Bake Protein Bites. Except I did not have a really ripe banana but I had some overripe bannana sliced and frozen in my freezer that I used to make 'nice cream'. Anyway long story short because the bananas were on the watery side now I had to add more rolled oats giving me 38 bites vs 20....so does this mean I can eat 2 for the cost of 1??? Just askin

Sounds like a friendly use of points!!!!!
Hi Turtles,
I had a great WI this morning. The fast stupid weight I put on is gone. I only have .2# to lose to be the lowest weight I've been in ages and then it's my goal to blast into the 180's# I know I can do it. Eating more at each meal in its own weird way has led to less snacking which I am sure was holding back my weight loss.
Nancy, you're doing great!
CeeJay, how are you?
Gail, look at the nice gals who have joined us!!!

Have a great week.
Judy

Indoor activity"? How about walking around the house fast and up and down stairs? How about watching a You Tube video on your tv and working out with someone new for a change? Yoga? What do you like to do?

Thank you Itry for the suggestions, working out at my home is something I can do easily and have done in the past. Now I go to the gym during the week. It is more finding something DH and I can do together that has me stumped. Congrats on losing your very temporary gain and you can see 180's awesome!

Nancy...…………..I love that you meal prep in advance. I do too during the weeks when I'm most successful.

Have you ever watched Amanda Cypert on YouTube. She's got a few ideas for meal prep that have worked out nicely for me. I need to start watching her again.

Have a great day. I'm optimistic that today will be another good day.
