I have been on vacation the last few days. They were NOT healthy days. 2eggsBeans1bread1cSoup, sausageEggBiscuit, jello, bananna, apple, applesauce, popcorn, salad, 2 more jellos, another bananna, orange, jello, big pickle, applesauce, soup, rice, beans, tortilla chips, salsa, CottageCheesePineapple, popcorn. Water was 85 oz. I hit a bump in the road and fell off the wagon. I'm gonna post here as usual, but my comments will probably be short cheerleading and very little advice. I really didn't like the way I felt the last few days. But I'm feeling better now. Starting over again.

museumgirl on 10/23/2014:
Welcome back, you'll get back to feeling better in a couple days. Glad you didn't give up :)

puddles on 10/23/2014:
Good morning Raven - Those darn bumps in the road they are so hard on the tires. Glad to have you back. Wishing you a good day. We are here for you.

skinnygrlwithin on 10/23/2014:
Glad to see you back. And remember, none of us are perfect and what we're trying to do is a lifestyle ... you'll never be perfect everyday. Be proud that instead of falling off the wagon and staying off you jumped right back on.

Always remember that starting over isn't a crime here, but going away is!!!

Good morning Raven - I got worried yesterday when you did not post. Yes staying the same is as good as a loss when we know we have strayed slightly. Wishing you a good week.

Good morning Raven - It is hard to be tempted all the time by our surroundings. Hope you have fun at the bluegrass tonight. Just keep on trucking you will be ok. Have a great day.

Maybe a bad day of willpower, but made me laugh...dang, hungry and hour later! I was thinking of chinese food yesterday, but then thought of all the salt...sure is delicious though! have a great day.

puddles on 10/17/2014:
Good morning Raven - It could have be worst you did good with only one dish. I read a long time ago that we should never have bananas or rice on a diet. Don't ask me why but maybe you should google it. Keep up the good job and have a great day.

Good morning Raven. I am a popcorn addict also. I enjoy it way too much to keep it around. Are your popcorn bag the small ones or the regular size ones? You water is really good wish I could drink that much water. Keep up the good work. Have a great day Raven.

I really have to try the Wendys Potato and Chilli that I see on your list. Great job on the water.

Good morning Raven - Styrofoam thingys - LOL - the things we will eat. A reunion now that would be interesting. Actually we have a reunion every day we are on this site. Home you have a great day.

museumgirl on 10/14/2014:
I love veggies with olive oil in foil. We do them on the grill sometimes or in the oven. I add chunks of garlic - delicious when it gets crispy! Wish I could score some free veggies! Have a great day.

Hey, maintenance is good. You see to have a healthy diet. Have a good Monday!

puddles on 10/13/2014:
Good afternoon Raven. Is your Sunday routine any different from all the other days? We usually have the answer our behaviors. Make an inventory of your Sundays and you might be surprised as to what you find. Do not get discouraged. You are doing good and your efforts will pay off. Have a great day.

biscottibody59 on 10/13/2014:
You must be doing something right:-)

Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/13/2014:
when I am not at work and have access to food all day, I find it hard to eat moderately also...and Monday I am always so hungry after eating more during the weekend.

you asked about my veggies. I do admit I do not always cook them myself, but, I do not only steam. I almost always add at least oil into the mix. the tastiest veggies I've had lately are ones I buy - it's a healthy slaw salad made with some herbs and a light maybe even only vinegar (and maybe a little oil) - anyways, the store tends to take leftovers and sautee them! The sautee the slaw salad and it's the best tasting thing I've ever had as far as veggies go. They sometimes add black beans and even craisins into it...sometimes even some rice and chick peas and all sorts of exatras making it a really nice, fulfilling, tasty dish.

anyways, when I order thai food, the veggies are cooked either in a curry or a sauce that may be either garlic, basil, or ginger. I live in a busy metro area, so for me, it's easy to get prepared food. Even the supermarkets now have sautéed veggies (even if it's string beans or something more basic) most days. However, when cooking myself, it's generally olive oil or similar, garlic or onion cooked in, and some stir fry or Asian sauce also. the options are really endless and as long as you are not coating your veggies in bread crumbs and literally frying them, a stir fry and sauce isn't a bad thing. if you need to watch salt, now this is my opinion, you can still cook them this way, and put them on a salad (so some of the meal is not in sauce!). I do this, I sometimes will eat the cooked veggies with lettuce (on top of a salad) for added volume. I have definitely experimented a lot on a how to eat a huge volume of food for little calories. sometimes it still adds up though, as I really do go overboard sometimes :)

Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/13/2014:
and actually, I do also steam (sometimes I do add a lil salt even though it's not the healthiest) but usually I then eat those steamed veggies with veggies that were cooked with a little more flavor / sauce. I do not try to drink up the sauce though - I eat whatever is on the veggies ;)
