(calorie counting)
Weight: 0.0

Got up at 5:30...and feeling great.  I must be super healthy because my hair and nails are growing like crazy.........I had short hair just 3 years ago and today....it is below my waist.....I do need to make a decision about that.....cut it, let it go...or just trim a few inches...........putting it off anymore is no longer an option.....My hair and nails have always been the best barometer of my health....when I was unhealthy my nails peeled and split...my hair was dull and I got bald patches around the base of my back hairline.....today when I put the cap on things like chapstick or lipstick...I am way too often shutting a hair in the top........the cat likes to play with it.......the roomba continually stops because so much hair is wound aroung the brushes....so far...today...trimming it a bit shorter will be a necessity.....then I can decide from there. 

By 6:30 I was clearing off the dining room table...it had become a catchall...and running roomba..........It's raining here today...so a good day for inside work.

Breakfast was 2 cups coffee, 1 cup Fage 0% plain yogurt and Smuckers sugar free breakfast syrup...( used it up)..= 145 cals

I've been counting points and cals at the same time...and I'm finding counting calories the easiest...so I'm just going to stick with that...

Very filling and high calorie lunch = 960 cals

Dinner was an apple and an orange for 157 calories

Total cals for the dy as 1,197

 

 

Horn_of_plenty on 06/28/2019:
I think that your long, thick hair is beautiful. I would say to mostly keep it long, but trim it a few inches at least since you say it's below your waist. but keep it at the longer side of things...below your shoulders. you look good with long hair! do you ever wear it up or always down?

your breakfast looks amazing. i'd like that. hoping to bake a few things here too. Trying to do what you do and organize some closets this weekend :)

BearCountryGG on 06/28/2019:
Yup...just going to cut a few inches off today.....and see how that goes. I used to wear it up as a kid...but in adulthood...wearing it up always caused a headache...a do headbands and such things.....when i do things like cook sometimes...or clean the bathroom or cat box...I do make a fast messy ponytail....but it comes down immediatly after....I have to chuckle when I think of aa little foster girl we had...she had the most beautifull very long hair...but as a toddler...it was always in her food...out of frustration...I did cut the sides shorter...and left the back VERY long......I look back at pictures now and see that I basically gave her a king of mullett...LOL...poor kid!

BearCountryGG on 06/28/2019:
KIND of mullett...(when will I learn to proofread before pushing that button?????)


Horn_of_plenty on 06/28/2019:
lol i read it the first time as KIND and didn't even realize you wrote king!

also, putting your hair up would def cause a lot of split ends. another reason why your hair looks so full is prob bc you do not play with it! :)

BearCountryGG on 06/28/2019:
True....wash, condition, air dry and carefully brush......pony tail holders/elastics...do a lot of damage....so I use scrunchies. When I was a kid I had a bald spot where my pony tail always was....so had to start moving it around back then.


happy-1 on 06/28/2019:
You're choking the Roomba? LOL.

BearCountryGG on 06/28/2019:
Have to keep cutting wound up hair out of it....it keeps stopping and complaining...LOL

BearCountryGG on 06/28/2019:
Did you know roombas talk.....??? They do...they tell you what is wrong with them...LOL


happy-1 on 06/29/2019:
Does the Roomba say "Rapunzel, get a buzzcut?"

D had another dr appt today...took blood again...and 1 other test...setting up 2 more tests in the next few days..........still waiting for answers.......I will be getting back to posting again tomorrow....thinking pics again.....need to keep in the game .  I'm feeling really good......haven't exercised though for a few days........time to just buckle down and do this again.....it is so easy to get caught up in life and forget.  Motivation for me sometimes wanes when other things crop up.............................................UGH!

Donkey on 06/28/2019:
Perhaps posting pics here will be a nice diversion from the waiting. I remember how surreal life felt as we were waiting for a diagnosis.

BearCountryGG on 06/28/2019:
It is surely dragging on...and now jUly will be another month of waiting...but I guess it will all be woth it to finally get some answers for him.....he told the dr that I had already diagnosed him...LOL.......I think getting back to posting pics will help keep me focused for sure....and will keep me from totally focused on him.....he likes that way too juch...LOL

BearCountryGG on 06/28/2019:
HE likes that wayyyy too much!

Rained all night so it will be an inside day...........time to gather the odds and ends together again and make use of them.......it is way too easy to shop...when I don't know what I already have on hand....so today....things will be gathered together ( of all kinds)...and set aside to use up.  Rainy days are great for this......I really want to paint the lawn furniture...but since it needs to be done outside...that is a no go.  I'm also ready to start some time management habits for myself..........I don't want schedules that make me antsy forcing me to do things when I'm not in the mood...but instead it will be a list of things to pick from...so I don't feel so ruled by rules.  Since I know that I do my best most productive work when I'm happy doing it......picking and choosing with spare time will keep the productive mode going....and keep me happy while accomplishing things at the same time.........Happiness is always my goal.  Getting necessities done is always an accomplishmnet which in turn also makes me happy.

Sorting through the fridge this morning I found a forgotten boiled egg and had to throw it away.......that is so wasteful and makes me sad....poor planning on my part wasted money and resourses.  But I did find some leftover potatoes that I turned into a tasty breakfast...kinda weird but tasty and full of potassium....for the win.  After parents who were from the great depression generation...and myself being part of the personal responsibility generation......hard work and waste not want not standards are apart of my DNA..........Can't shake those standards and really don't want to shake them....they have served me well in life.  On to the pantry to rotate the grocery stock...................always with food to last for 6 months at all times.........chatting with a co-worker once.....she kept no more than a couple of days worth of food in her house at any time...( and she had kids).......she made the statement that if a need or emergency ever existed...she would simply go take the food of those that were prepared for emegencies away...and feel no guilt about it at all......what  a sad commentary on society today......I look with respect at my ancestors.....they taught me well.....if the time ever comes I will happily give food to children....all else can go forrage for themselves. 

On another note.........my pants are too loose this morning to keep wearing them.....YEAH!!!!  Time to get the next size clothing bins out and find some replacements................................Thankfully I'm blessed with loads of energy today...there is a lot to do.  The backseat of my car will be full by the end of the day....so will likely head to donate tomorrow or even later today.

 

Donkey on 06/25/2019:
I agree with having a list of activities to choose from, rather than a strict list, unless it's something that has to get done or an appointment.

Glad the scope went well. A lot of suffering, in my opinion, for nothing. On to the next test in July... again, still hoping you get answers soon.

BearCountryGG on 06/25/2019:
That is exactly what he said too Donk....he felt all that prep was such a waste of time...I think that the July dr will get the answers...specialists are hard to get appts with quickly....but he is doing ok in the meantime....thankfully.

BearCountryGG on 06/25/2019:
I tried strictly scheduling my days.....and it was stressfull. When at work...work is work....but at home...I can be a lot more flexable.....and that's the nice thing about home.


legcramps on 06/25/2019:
It's nice to be able to spend time with happy tasks rather than feeling like you need to get it all done. Enjoy your day :)

BearCountryGG on 06/25/2019:
Yes it is...life shouldn't hurt!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/25/2019:
love the idea of the list and you choose each day! LOVE IT!

yeah, i also buy a lot and probably have enough odds and ends to last me at least 3-4 weeks if not more!

congrats on going down a size or two! that ALWAYS feels wonderful!

BearCountryGG on 06/25/2019:
Yes it does......boy are my old clothes out of style...LOL


happy-1 on 06/27/2019:
I guess I figure I don't buy packaged food or eat out so a little fresh food waste is cheaper overall... Compost heap?


Maria7 on 06/27/2019:
Very smart to keep food to last 6 months ongoing... Hope you and your Hubby are having a good day and kitty, too.

Up at 4 this morning and headed for the hospital early.......D had his colonoscopy and it went just great......no problems....but I didn't think there would be.............he was so funny.....when they brought him back after it..they sent me back to his room.....he was so out of it!!!!  Laying there with one eye open and one closed....LOL......I told him that it sure happened fast and he said......" did I get one?"...I said "one what?"......He said...an OSCOPY!!!!!!.....a few minutes later the dr comes in and tells us the results..."very good"....and asked him if he had any questions......well...after a moments thought...he did have a question for the doc...."Whats the price of GOLD?????  Well...the doctor looked stumped.....I have NO IDEA where that came from...LOL...well...we can laugh about it now!!  Next appt  thursday.....not holding my breath for that one either........the big appt will be at the end of JULY....UGH....it is where i think the answers lie.

So...stopped at Mickey D's and had an egg mcmuffin......came home and had 2 cups coffee with the new reeses peanut butter chocolate whipped topping.....( nice addition to coffee).....a tiny amt of pasta with cheese and some pork cubes...and some ginger ale....after 4 1/2 days of liquids...it all filled me up quickly..........I definately lost some wt with this fast.......feeling great and would like to get some things done...but instead...I'm keeping it quiet and slow around here to keep D in the relaxing mode.....for the rest of the day.....otherwise...I know him...he would be outside cutting down trees or something.........He did have a nice long phone chat with one son...about this mornings events......they laughed like a couple of hyenas.........so happy so see them laughing.....there just isn't enough of that in the world right now.

 

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/24/2019:
It's good to hear that so far D's tests have gone well. Fingers crossed for the rest.

with the reeses whipped topping, doesn't it melt RIGHT AWAY in the coffee? or did you have it SEPARATE? i'd like it separate oh yea! a little sugar and a little caffeine. YUM YUM.

yes, after fasting the stomach is def tight and gets full fast :)

Keep up the great work, good that you and your son could catch up!

BearCountryGG on 06/24/2019:
It did melt into the coffee...but it did add a nice flavor.


Donkey on 06/25/2019:
I've tried the Reese's creamer, which I would not get again. However, in a whipped topping might work!

BearCountryGG on 06/25/2019:
It's okay....I have the aerosol can...and while I like that is coffee...I don't think I would buy it again either.

D is on clear liquids only today...and this no cooking for 2 days sure is making my life easier...LOL

Sticking to this liquids only again today....clothes are looser and I'm full of energy.......and I'm suspecting that food just bogs me down....reminds me of my very active years past...full of energy and a small appetite....personally...I think I run much much better on minimal food..........

Tomorrow bright and early we will head to the hospital 45 minutes away for his colonoscopy........he will be starving immediatly after...and will want an egg mcMuffin...LOL.........maybe I will break my liquid fast then too...will wait and see...............

so far today 2 cups coffee and 1 cup almond milk., pomegranate juice, ginger ale.

Donkey on 06/23/2019:
As I recall from my own experience, the clear liquids wasn't the problem but rather the cleanse at the end. I hope you get some answers.

BearCountryGG on 06/23/2019:
They started with dulcolax last night...now at 1...a whole bottle of miralax...then at 6 tonight...more dulcolax.......gonna be a fun afternoon and evening for him......


Donkey on 06/23/2019:
Hope it goes well for D tomorrow!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/24/2019:
Yes, thinking positive thoughts for D!

Yes, food can DEF bog a person down especially when in high volumes! oh yeah!

i hope you find this time a time of release :)

talk soon!

BearCountryGG on 06/24/2019:
Nicest and longest liquid fast I've ever been on...and it was nice to say the least

Finally a quiet day here today....D  is prepping this weekend for a colonoscopy on Monday...so since he is have a soup and cracker kind of day  ( tomorrow is totally clear liquid for him).....I thought it would be a good time for me to do a few days of a liquid diet...different for me than him......I'm on day 3...but where he will be clear liquids tomorrow...i've been on a liquid of any kind.......This is one of my go to ways to drop some weight...over a 3 or 4 day period of time.  I usually drop 3 to 5 pounds on this...and it always energizes me.......I can't say that I'm getting a lot of nutrition ( but I do take vitamins during it to cover that)...and basially I drink anything I want.......

Thursday...I had 2 cups coffee, a bottle of vanilla premier protein, 1 mini cup sf jello, Cookies and cream flavor Muscle milk, and a cup of chicken broth, a cup of hot tea, and a cup of hot chocolate......calories only came to 411

Friday = 1  cup coffee, 1 vanilla Muscle Milk, chicken broth, SF jello, regular bottle vernors ginger ale, 2 cups hot chocolate, chocolate Muscle Milk ...calories came to 491

Today so far ......2 cups coffee with 3/4ths cup milk and a pkt of truvia, Chocolate muscle milk, chicken broth and a cup of hot chocolate, snapple

 

It always concerns me about the low calorie intake but I feel GREAT....so since it is only a few days......I don't think it hurts anything....it definately does flatten the belly...and takes away any fluid retention.......Yesterday I did work to raise the cals a bit...and today hope to at least get those higher again.......along with this I'm also drinking lots of water.

Still waiting for answers on D........he does have another drs appt later this week....and at least one other in July....still hoping for answers....I'm sticking to my own diagnosis for him....I still think it's bladder/kidney stones.......but we shll see.

 

Horn_of_plenty on 06/23/2019:
WOW only 5% of dieters keep the weight off!? dayum!

I like your fast over a few days of liquids only. sounds nice. and yes, i'd enjoy the chicken broth too, how nice!

What made you decide on buying Muscle milk drink? is it the lighter version? do you like it? will you buy again? and I have the same questions regarding your Vanilla Premier protein drink...please let me know your opinions on both brands!

I think that a low calorie intake is def ok over a few days as a break from your typical patterns. I do think it can give your internal organs a rest / time to cleanse.

Good luck to D :O I'm wishing him the best.

BearCountryGG on 06/23/2019:
Those protein drinks first came into the house because both sons recommened them for D......but they raisd his sugar levels ( he's diabetic)...so now it's up to me to use them up......They are good....they work well as a creamer for coffee...quite tasty really....I was using them for these liquid days because I needed the calories......questionable sugars in them though


Donkey on 06/23/2019:
The Premier Protein shakes are supposed to be low-carb. Lots of keto-ers go to them. But if it spikes one's blood sugar levels, then that's no good - even if they taste good.

I'm seeing now that different foods affect each individual person differently. (Huge debates on this on keto FB pages, let me tell ya...) So one really has to go with what works for him or her. What works for me might not work for you or her or him, etc.


happy-1 on 06/24/2019:
Try Orgain for a less processed shake.

Today begins the next round of medical tests and drs visits..........and will cover the next 2 weeks pretty throughly......I feel bad for him but it's necessary to get answers....so it's worthwhile.  Our days will be pretty chopped up with appts...so will see how much computer time I will have.

While I'm doing WW with private coaches.......i can clearly see that ww ( formerly Weight Watchers)...is falling apart.....when Oprah bought out part of the company...she came in a ruined it.  I belong to several Face book groups that are all WW.  I along with all the others that subscribe to the WW magazine got a surprise a few days ago........WW magazine is no more...so now they are sending us Eating Well magazine...that truly has NOTHING to do with WW......( should have just refunded our $ instead)....but...they just decided that we would put up with it.  With the latest changes from meetings to Studio.......200 zero point foods....and a switch from weight loss to healthy eating...they are losing their standing with the public...........they should have stuck with the old program we all loved.........( there are ctually a lot of people who joined and gained weight now)...they messed up...they had a good thing going...and they let Oprah ruin it.  I will stick with the program since I am doing okay with it.....and I have a commitment into next fall....but it sure isn't what it used to be......seriously....there are untold numbers of people taking laxatives daily now with this new program...that are doing themselves serious harm ( not me).....but these groups are pointing out so many problems with this that make me suspect that WW or WeightnWatchers or whatever....is about to fold........

I will probably not be posting much for a few days...we will be very busy traveling to his appointments (  remote living problems..)........but still counting...not weighing...clothes getting looser.....and feeling okay myself.

Donkey on 06/17/2019:
It's too bad that WW doesn't or didn't offer a "back to basics" option

Good luck with the appointments. So much driving, endless waiting...

BearCountryGG on 06/17/2019:
I agree totally.....this program is not very useful to many people....I don't know they had to fix something that wasn't broken. It will be good to get the doctoring over with....so much hurry up and wait.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/17/2019:
well, that sounds like marketing to me...anything to get new people. changing things around just to get new followers!

wishing D with with the appts.

BearCountryGG on 06/17/2019:
And sell new cookbooks because the points change........plus new electronic points counters.......Oprah wrecked it when she took over......at first she said she lost 40 pounds...now she looks like she gained it back.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/18/2019:
luckily for you - you know the old program and can hopefully do it that way.

it's all a business.

i have a coworker by me who was really thin from it (he and his wife do WW and she works for them!)...but, he has gained a little back. he's young though and still learning. and everyone's weight does fluctuate time to time!

BearCountryGG on 06/22/2019:
Supposedly only 5% of proplr keep the wt off on any diet......but we can only hope.


legcramps on 06/21/2019:
Hope you are doing OK!

BearCountryGG on 06/22/2019:
Yup...doing OK...still waiting to get D's issues figured out...lots of tests and drs......but at least they are eliminating things...

Happy Fathers Day...a day to celebrate for sure. 

I asked D if he wanted to go out to dinner or if he wanted me to make him a T Bone steak.....he chose the steak....so that will make counting a lot easier for me today...I just know if we went to the restaurant I would not be as good points wise........Living away from the kids sure does change holidays......very different from when we all lived near to each other.  We have all spread out now and while we all live where we want....we have lost the closeness....always a phone call away...yet so far.  Asked D if he wanted me to make a dessert...and he said no...so that helps too.  

Breakfast =

Fage FF yogurt 0 points and 120 cals

Mrs Buttersworths lite syrup ( 1 T.) = 1 pt and 25 cals

orange = 0 points and 62 calories

2 cups coffee = 0 points and 16 cals

Won't bore everyone with anymore pics today...I'm making a nice Fathers day meal for D...but I'm eating leftovers because what he is having isn't really going to fit into my points........so......I plan to stay within points...and get a few more cals today though...yesterday was a bit short.

 

 

 

Horn_of_plenty on 06/16/2019:
Happy Father's Day to D!

Next, i just ordered a sugar free stevia type of maple syrup on amazon and i think for this week i'll buy regular / plain greek yogurts so i can use my syrup as a mix in!

breakfast looks light and tasty!

BearCountryGG on 06/16/2019:
Maple syrup is amazing on plain yogurt.....I just love it!!! You won't be disappointed!!!

BearCountryGG on 06/16/2019:
D says "Thank you"


Donkey on 06/16/2019:
I am having Greek yogurt for breakfast too!

So I think you would understand why I kind of want to stay here in Illinois to be with my daughter for as long as possible... It's already kind of surreal without my son around, although I'm extremely proud of him for moving forward in his life in a meaningful way.

BearCountryGG on 06/16/2019:
Yes definately....they grow up...and move around and while the phone calls are always there...not seeing them is just plain sad...once a Mom...always a Mom...when they spread out...we left the nest too........now we aare spread from Wyoming to Mihigan....miss all of them!

 Thankfully I've been able to stick with WW through all of the family ups and downs.........toyed with it a bit...and felt that maybe I should just play the game the way it is set up...........Toying with the process worked many years ago....but as the years go by ( mine)....and the ww program changes........I think this program works well without my own personal adjustments...........Personal coaching is nice....certainly much easier that dealing with meetings so far away.........all the coaches have been super so far......They all have gotten the fact that I know the program...and won't really have any questions....and that I am basically using them to keep me accountable.  I can use the same coach each week or try different ones...so far...I've chosen 3 different ones.....and was happy with all.  D's Drs appts and tests continue through this month....and still waiting for the ok for a specialist appt.  We will both be happy to have some answers and get this out of the way.  

Raining again today....so no outside things.........plenty to keep busy with inside....

So far over the last 16 days I've just counted ww points....but with so many zero point foods now ( 200 of them)....I think I would like to not only count points but calories at the same time.  I've gotten curious about how many calories I'm eating now.......zero point foods are all healthy...but they still have calories....and the old calories in/calories out is still the way it works.  

Clothes are still fitting loosely....and I can see that they will need to be donated in the near futrure....right now...I'm just enjoying the looser fit for summer.  Still putting off breakfast as long as possible...that just helps me soooo much.  Today I will be testing out the 2 cups of coffee in the morning again...lately I'm drinking the McDonalds pods for keurig...and likeing them so will see how this goes.   I miss my Fitday software.....disc broke and it's not replaceabble...so I'm just googling cals now..

Breakfast

2 cups coffee = 0 points and 16 cals

2 boiled eggs = 0 points and 154 cals

1 slice Aunt Millies 12 grain bread toasted = 3 points and 100 cals

20 sprays of I Can't believe it's not butter spray = 0 points and 0 cals

1 Heaping T. Walden Farms Grape Spread = 0 points and 0 cals

36 green grapes = 0 points and 72 cals

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Breakfast = 3 points and 342 cals

 Lunch

Banana = 0 points and 105 cals

Salad = 2 points and 88 cals

Turkey sausage and peppers and onions cooked with 1t olive oil = 3 points and 169 cals

Dinner

Flatout wrap with mustard, lettuce, tomato and 2 deli chicken breast slices = 2 points and 196 cals

2 lite mozarella sticks = 3 points and 100 cals

Built bar = 3 points and 110 cals

So far today 1,110 cals and 16 points..........Should add a few cals and a few points...will see how hungry I am later...may just leave it at this.  Almost 9 now...and not hungry...so this will be my day.....really could use some more points...but oh well...not going to eat when I'm not hungry....time to think beore I eat...LOL

Donkey on 06/15/2019:
Throughout my husband's various medical situations - whether it was the nerve transposition in his elbow, the never-ending back spasms, or the overall AS -- it was the "not knowing" that I found to be the most daunting and frustrating part. Once we knew what he was dealing with, then it became less frustrating, although trying treatments and then waiting for results (some not always successful) was no walk in the park. We never did find out why those back spasms wouldn't stop - we just had to wait.

I love that accountability aspect of WW.

I think a calorie vs. points comparison is helpful every so often. I don't know that I personally would do it every day - and I realize you're not saying you'd do it every day either. I must say, your breakfast looks mighty yummy and healthy this morning!

BearCountryGG on 06/15/2019:
I think that his problem is bladder/kidney stones...and hopefully that is all....it is the waiting that is so difficult.....and something that will probably be an issue from now on...my Dad hds them right up until the end....It's hard to know he is worried and in pain at times....he is also scheduled for a colonoscopy this month....those gifts that just keep on giving....never any fun. It is a bit of work figuring and photographing everything daily....it gts to be a chore...or a habit....will have to wait and see how that plays out in a few.... I know your hubby has really been through a lot too....you are a great support to him....I know it isn't always easy...but it is worthwhile!!!


Horn_of_plenty on 06/15/2019:
those meals look AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! especially the turkey sausage, onions and peppers! YUM!

i cannot believe there's 200 foods on the no points list! that's a TON!

i love the Flat Out brand wraps...speaking of wraps, i gotta buy some soon! i prefer wraps to bread.

BearCountryGG on 06/15/2019:
eggs, chicken breast, low fat turkey, most veggies and fruits ( not dried fruit)...makes it a lot easier...but those things have cals too....so I'm counting cals along with it....like the new program...some don't...but they are over eating the zero things....still need restraint with those too.

A lovely eating day! I really like your pictures, but can see that this can be time-consuming. It's like having a treat when you do post :)

I enjoy it for awhile...then it gets a bit tedious...( just like a job...LOL)...I will say...it definately does keep me eating healthier though........I will keep it up until it's not fun anymore.

Sorry for all you are going through. Also, hoping your Hubby is better soon. You're doing better than I am sticking with the plan during stressful times...I've been gaining weight. Take care.
