I just posted on yesterday's entry, but you are doing stellar with your goals. Nice that the caffeine goal is the easiest. It's proving to be hard for me, but I'll kick it sooner or later. Have a good one.

Excellent job meeting your goals! I don't use curry paste and I doubt my curry is very authentic, but it's super yummy and the whole family will eat it. And I hope you can find the garam masala, it's the nectar of the gods! It's super expensive and sometimes not available at my grocery. This site is great for imports: http://www.ishopindian.com/nirav-garam-masala-special-pr-22067.html I'm working on a big box from them right now.

legcramps on 11/17/2011:
Good job! 90 ounces of water is a lot. I'm trying to do the calculation for the metric equivalent in my head as I type, but i'm not very good at math anymore. Anyways, it's gotta be close to 2.5 - 3 litres of water. I can only drink 2 litres on a good day. Moral of the long story - good for you!


liza36 on 11/17/2011:
I think it's great you have very specific goals. Mine are pretty vague - lose weight, exercise. Good job setting and keeping goals.

Had a great wt trng workout yesterday. I took my time because I didn't want to have to lower my dumbbells below 13# even though it was still akin to starting all over. For the record it takes 18-20 min total of just the moves (if they were done non-stop). Good to get the "first" one out of the way.

To my credit I did the same reps as I had done on the last stint--22 days ago:-) Now the challenge is to keep up the routine and even do just half one day and half the next if I'm pressed for time. NOT doing wt trng is sure chaos for me. Somehow other things begin to slide as well. Of course the shorter days this time of year don't help either!

Umpqua on 11/15/2011:
Awesome job with the weights!

The curry is something I throw together. Here is the basic recipe: saute 1/2 an onion in a bit of olive oil. Add 1 can of light kidney beans (I puree mine in the food processor since hubby won't eat them if they resemble a legume haha). Add a bit of water and bring to a simmer over med-low heat. Add some garlic, peppers and any other veggies you would like. Add 1 small can of tomato paste, and maybe 2-3 cans of water - keep adding to get a good thick consistency. I then add chili powder, cumin, some garam masala or masala curry powder and cayenne pepper to get to the desired spiciness. Let it all simmer up for maybe 20 minutes. I eat it over brown rice, quinoa, kasha, barley - it's good over anything. Enjoy!

Great going! I'm considering stepping down from caffeine in the next couple of weeks. I KNOW it is an addiction because the thought of not drinking my diet soda bugs me like it did when I started thinking about quitting smoking, which I did and I'm glad LOL. Have a great day!

Thanks for the comments! It's different this time because I'm older and skin loses elasticity even w/o weight loss. Also had a higher weight as starting point. I'd never have plastic surgery though. And, you're right, people's comments don't bother me. You're doing good with the caffeine. Have a fantastic day! :-)

One day at a time for me "becoming decaffeinated." Today is Day 9. I'm keeping track of my usage/intake in a separate private entry. It's a rough list of what and how much of what I consumed with caffeine or decaf coffee day by day. (I haven't had any regular coffee so far.) I will do this for the next 60 days beginning with last Tuesday. I need to stay on top of this thing--it seems to be the perfect time for it.

Tomorrow marks 11 years of posting here on DDs. My first entry was 11.10.2000. It's nice that this site still exists in essentially the same form as when I started. My personal form (body, fitness, whatnot:-) isn't where I'd like for it to be, but thankfully it's not the same as when I started here:-)

Cheers to you all!

I am not sure if you know this(I hope you do) I as well as others here have learned so much from you! Also might I add that you are truly an inspiration!! I admire that your persistence, I think the fact that you have maintained with minor gain is SUCCESS!! Bravo girl!! Have a good one :)

Happy anniversary! I glad too that this site has been around. It's great to have such supportive and informative people like you here.

Good job on going caffeine free. I know how difficult it can be. I'm day 2 (again) of no caffeine in the form of diet coke. I hope this sticks!


Kati on 11/10/2011:
I also stopped drinking coffee.. though, I have some small cappuchino sacks in stock and I started drinking it up, a cup a day, mainly to finish them up. Did you experience headache or lack of attention/concentration? I haven't had any symptoms like these.


Kati on 11/10/2011:
11 years, AWESOME!!!!


Kati on 11/10/2011:
humm, maybe the cappuchino then! Because the rest of the drinks, foods, etc. don't have any caffeine. I normally drink fruit-based teas, or plants. Green tea is a MUST NOT for me, because even being a person with LOW blood pressure, green tea takes it mountain high and gives me a very bad chest-pain-like feeling. I used to drink 4-5 coffees a day, and no headache so far! I let the coffee go when I got sick. Basically. But it was because I didn't crave it, being with the flu. I guess I'm getting it back in a few days when I'm fully recovered. It has a social part also. Portuguese are heavy coffee drinkers. But I NEVER drink it pure, I hate the flavour. I am able to drink it with milk only, and without sugar.


grannyannie on 11/10/2011:
Soy milk: I didn't like the actual soy milks, but bought vanilla flavoured soy drink (when I was vegan/then veg). I used it with oatmeal and also to make french toast made with some powdered egg substitute. I just do regular old skimmed milk now.


~WI~ on 11/11/2011:
Happy Anni! And best to you on quitting caffeine...a very addictive substance indeed!

For my activity:
Mon-Wed: Nothing

One day at a time:-) I had two decaf coffees and a little chocolate Tuesday. Then yesterday one decaf and some chocolate. Had one decaf today and will probably have a little chocolate too. Decaf coffee rather sucks as far as I'm concerned. That's the extent of the caffeine. I got the dreaded sick headache yesterday around 11 a.m. No headache so far today, but I've had two nights of 8 hours of sleep--first time for that in awhile. Again, I'm just taking it a day at a time--so far so good!

I'd eventually like to cut out dairy entirely, but that's for another day.

I finally found and tried some red rice. It's definitelty my kind of thing because it's the short-grain variety and very similar to short-grain brown rice. I don't care for long-grain brown rice. I'm not sure how much I paid for it, but it was worth a try.

I had a little detour in my day yesterday courtesy of a very charismatic older kitten that showed up Monday. I called around to let our local lost and found know just in case someone called. Then I took it to the local no-kill shelter to see if it had a microchip. It didn't. And they were full--no vacancy:-) Fortunately I was able to bypass the public animal control shelter (I still call it the dog pound) in favor of the Humane Society, which doesn't turn any animals away.

It's farther than I'd like to drive just for a cat, but this cat would probably have not fared well. He was clearly coddled and well-cared for until someone decided they didn't want him anymore. He's young enough to get a chance to charm just the right person. It would have been my idea of a perfect cat--reminded me of one I had when I was little. My dog couldn't quite contain herself though.

Though I put him in an old cardboard box crate I had, he got out twice on the drive over there. So I finally I just let him roam around the car on the way to the shelter. He loved riding and finally settled in my lap. Just a dream of an affectionate cat. But, ya' know if 3 and 4 year old kids are occupied with their own cell phones (even just for the music/games), a kitty cat like this doesn't have half a chance. It'd probably have to be an older man or woman who likes a purring accessory to complete his or her "lap ensemble." :-)

Thanks for your comments! Hang in there with the caffeine. Are you going to switch to soy milk when you give up dairy? Glad to hear you're getting good sleep now.


getmebackto150 on 11/03/2011:
awwww. that kitten sounds ADORABLE... I wish I could take him home:) Althogh we already have two kitties we rescued from the animal shelter with BIG personalities:) I have pretty much cut all dairy out of my diet and I feel AMAZING!!! I'm wondering why I never did this sooner!!


liza36 on 11/03/2011:
Lap ensemble - I love that! That was so nice of you to take the time to find a no-kill place for the cat. Someone will certainly enjoy such a likeable little feline.

Good for you for cutting out caffeine. It's pretty hard, and I'm just a diet coke drinker. I cut the diet coke a few months ago, and was good for about 2 months, then due to stress started it back up. Time to let it go once and for all.

Good sleep, now that's worth giving it up.


V on 11/03/2011:
I am sure you were tempted.I am sure the litter box was in the back of your mind as well...YUCK!!i am so happy you took the time out to take the cat to a place where it would stand a chance..I hope someone will adopt the furry fellow ;) Much luck on the caffeine detox :) Hey have you tried the red rice yet?? Just wondering how it tastes???


V on 11/03/2011:
P.S. Thank you and have a good one as well :)


Kati on 11/04/2011:
ohh that kitten... I would have kept him anyway, LOL... I'm just that kind of person. But I like you went so far to save him!!! :)


Umpqua on 11/04/2011:
Aww cute kitty! I'm glad the humane society would take him, I hate it when folks abandon their pets. I got a cat that way, an older one too. The people in the house next to my apartment moved and just left him outside. My landlord wouldn't let me take a second cat so mother in law took him and he had a long and happy retirement with her :)

Great job on the caffeine and the red rice sounds good, I'll have to check it out!


~WI~ on 11/04/2011:
Way to go on rescuing that cat! And i'm not a fan of the long grain rices either, I may give that red rice a try! Have a wonderful weekend!


thinkpositive on 11/05/2011:
You are a good person to find the cat a good home. Sounds like you are winning over the caffeine.


V on 11/07/2011:
Hey my friend that lives in Dallas said you guys had an earthquake?? I hope you fared well..Did you feel it where you live??


V on 11/08/2011:
Thanks for the info, did i mention that my friend is a bit of a drama queen?? LOL She managed to rile up a few people in the area and one of our friends in Arizona who swears that she felt tremors?? "The sky is falling!!" ;) Okay so forgive me for being way too nosy(I seriously can't help it, LOL) Wondering how goes it with the caffeine free project?? I am attempting to clean up my act with the excessive Monster intake..I haven't had one since Friday :)

Sat & Sun: Nothing

4-Day Challenge (F-S-S-M):
1) Plant-based way of eating :: no added oil :: no nuts, dairy products or coffee :: one green tea + lemon
2) 60 min activity each day

Well, today would be the last day of the challenge, but I see no reason to continue. I'm going to jump directly into cutting out caffeine. It's a gateway "food" for me. I know it's not food, but I put a food in mine--half & half or milk. So for me it's a food. Nevertheless it leads me to eat other things ideally I'd like to be avoiding. That's the long and short of it:-)

To be fair, Day 1 was pretty good, but then I went downhill pretty quickly.

I will begin my "no caffeine" trip tomorrow. That means no green tea either. No, this isn't for everyone, and I don't begrudge anyone who can handle caffeine. I think for most of us it's not problematic, until. Until it is problematic. Live it up while you can:-)

Personally I have no business kidding myself (with the particular heart and sleep issues I have) by thinking it's okay. I have found it very difficult to moderate the amount of ANYTHING with caffeine, since I started back full-force a few months ago. For anyone who doesn't know or doesn't remember, I had quit it for a time. Got shingles and eventually went fully loaded AGAIN with the caffeine.

I got to reading some entries from others struggling in the same way on the McDougall discussion board, and I could have written a couple of the random entries I read there. I have never been addicted to anything, but I am firmly convinced NOW that I'm definitely a true caffeine addict. It may sound kinda funny, but for me it's not. Not anymore.

No luck needed. I get it done or not--one day at a time:-)

Hope all goes well with you on the elimination of caffeine. I went without caffeinated beverages for over a year a few years ago...as a matter of fact, I only drank water for my beverage....then after a year or maybe two of this, I gave in to tea and coffee....then it went on to caffeinated diet soft drinks.... It is easy to form new habits of caffeine addiction...which I think I definitely have again. I believe you will do real well cause you are very determined. Take care.


V on 10/31/2011:
As an all or nothing kinda girl I totally understand what you are saying..Although I no longer drink a pot of coffee per day, it was replaced with my energy drinks and supplements...I am hoping that all works out well for you!! Have a good one!

I'm trying my best with the caffeine too because of sleep problems. Tea is my big addiction so at home I use decaf , which I have got used to the taste of now. I can take decaf t-bags to work I suppose, but it gets more difficult when I visit people. It seems rude to take my own t-bags with me. Thanks for your support BTW biscotti. You keep it real !!

Im cutting out caffeine too. I drink soda in the morning and I know its bad for u (since I use to drink not diet just regular) and boy do i feel the difference!!


hackersdiet on 11/01/2011:
You can do it! I am the wade into the water type...not the cold turkey type...so I would decrease and decrease until I stopped. But you know yourself better, so choose a method that will set you up for success! By the way, I am not a caffeine drinker. I only use caffeine to stay awake on long drives. I don't own a coffee maker. This works for me!

Hope your plan works out! I have faith in you! Re my hip pain, I don't have muscle or joint pain, only pain when I lie on it in bed. Defo a nerve! Might stop the ankle weights for a while.

Thanks for the photo tip. Must be because I'm using Chrome because I always get an error message. Will try again. I've never had trouble uploading photos anywhere before.


grannyannie on 11/01/2011:
Added a photo to my page just now!

Good luck with cutting out caffiene. I know it would be incredibly difficult for me, even with the one-two cups I have each morning. It's the routine that I think I would miss most.


thinkpositive on 11/02/2011:
Not easy but sounds like you are motivated to quit caffeine. Thanks for the tips on uploading pictures. I only got so far & then it asked for a url & then I have no clue what to put in there. Sorry sometimes hopeless with technical stuff. I did put pictures on flickr & now have to figure out how to share them. I'll figure it out eventually.

Good challenge. Have a wonderful weekend!

I like my Weight Watchers scale that measures in 10th increments, sure does help boost the morale when you drop .3lbs! I see you are switching it up to go plant based for a while, good luck!!


~WI~ on 10/28/2011:
AND...TeNaCiOuS ~WI~...LOL thank you I love that!

Up a pound yesterday--duly noted above:-) I'm smaller, for what it's worth--my blue jeans were falling off yesterday. Can't have everything. And to be fair to myself there's quite a bit of road ahead--I am so up for the journey this go-round!

Little tech note: I switched to a scale that measures in 0.2# increments from 0.5#.

Go Rangers!

Supercheese on 10/26/2011:
Thanks for the post before biscotti. I totally agree with you 100% on marriage and I explained things to Zach fairly and yes I agree, GO RANGERS!!!


grannyannie on 10/26/2011:
Baggy jeans are fantastic!! Have a good day!


liza36 on 10/26/2011:
Honestly, I'd be super happy for the baggy jeans versus the number on the scale. You're right, can't have everything!


V on 10/26/2011:
Well the jeans tell the story :) Awesome!!


V on 10/26/2011:
Rain delay on the game :(
