I thought I would start this thread off, as it seems to have lost some steam!<br>
I weighed in this morning with another 1.2 lb loss! My diet has been less than perfect, but I am increasing my miles so that seems to be helping!<br>
Good day and week to all!<br>

After two weeks of not paying attention but having good intentions, I am back on track, and exactly where I was when I started. . . Jeesh. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Today -<br>
B - yogurt, raspberries, Fiber One and Grapenuts<br>
S - Fiber One bar, tea<br>
L - tomato soup, string cheese, apple<br>
S - sweet potato, hot cocoa<br><br>
Not sure what the plan for dinner is, but will be swimming at lunch (hopefully) and will be stacking 3 cords of wood after work, so there will be some activity! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
I've done well since I checked in on the 7th...<br>
I'm down 13.5, and except for this bout of chest cold, I've been consistently in the gym 4-5 days a week, and doing something else active on the weekends.<br>
Bringing lunch (and on class nights, dinner) really has had an impact...
Congrats to <b>HH & Billie</b>!!! I'm proud to say that I bought a second pair of jeans this past weekend in a size smaller than my regular-all-the-time-stay-the-same size. This makes Maria very happy.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">
I was hoping this thread would disappear entirely since I got some bad news from my scale this morning... I gained two pounds!!! Damn that pumpkin dip! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
<b>Congrats to Maria, Billie, & HH</b> I have no idea what I weigh today. Drank way to much to get on the scale today.<br><br>
B: smoothie<br>
S: Fiber One Bar<br>
L: Salad, grapes, yogurt w/ ganola.<br>
D: Pork Loin, salad, apple
I didnt show much self control over my eating over the weekend, I manged to put a pound back on but im still down 5 from when I started this thing.
Thanks for starting this. I haven't been on the scale, but a pair of my jeans I can pull off without unbuttoning them! Wahoo! And my trouser pants that I wore to my family reunion do the same thing. My Dad saw me from the back when I first got there and he didn't know it was me. :beaming: I guess I'm too hard on myself.<br><br>
I had a piece of dry toast this morning, but since I just got home from the gym I haven't eaten anything. I will go do that now.
Well good intentions aside I had an OK week eating but a not so good week working out. I made all my runs, but didn't do anything else.<br><br>
I had some fun shopping this weekend and found some good jeans! So I guess this is impetus enough to get me back on track.<br><br>
B - Kashi ceral, 1% milk<br>
S - banana<br>
L - 2 slice pizza (it was free at a meeting)<br>
S - yougrt<br>
D - supposed to be rissotto, but I have having trouble finding ingredients.
Well, I weighed myself this afternoon and I lost 4 pounds this week. Pretty cool - only 16 more to go. The diet has been going well although increasing the amount of vegetables (read: fiber) has been doing bad, bad things to my stomach. Blech.
Congrats to all who lost. Last week I went up from 131.5 to 135 which really annoyed me. I tried to be so good with counting my calories but I still gained. So I am having a fresh start this morning. I will say I have been really good with getting enough water. I have managed to get 6-8 cups a day every day.
Well dinner wasn't so hot last night. The rissotto did not turn out well, but I think I can modify it next time.<br><br>
B - kashi cereal and 1% milk<br>
S - banana<br>
L - turkey sandwich, pudding cup <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br>
S - yougrt, apple<br>
D - grilled tuna, veggies
<b>Tonya</b> - what kind of probs are you having with the risotto?
You need to have some major dedication to make risotto. Amy tricked me into stirring it during the preparation the last time we had it. I didn't realize that I'd be stirring for 30 minutes straight....
The first time I made it I nearly bailed completely. My arm was killing me and I couldn't do anything else while that dang dish was still cooking.
The recipe called for half barley an dhaf risotto to make a slightly different texture, more fiber, etc. Only I don't think the barley and rice had the same cooking time. It didn't turn out creamy and nice... it was chewy and brothy.
trader joe's makes a packaged risotto that's not half bad, and takes way less effort.<br><br>
Now that I am getting back to a routine, thought I would start checking back in here. Put on about 5 pounds in 1.5 weeks of inactivity. So far, today has been a good day:<br><br>
B - Kashi Apple Cin oatmeal<br>
S - apple<br>
L - grilled chicken breast. salad, yogurt<br>
S - grapes and a granola bar<br><br>
Of course, the evenings are my challenge....
I would like to point out, at this time, girl scout cookies are truly the work of the devil.
I would like to add that eating bell peppers for dinner is not all that enjoyable. Although, I did get a green one, a yellow one, and an orange one. They are good, but when that is all you are having, it pretty much sucks.<br><br>
I want some meat.
