Prayers, 2eggsBeans1bread1cSoup, bananna, apple, applesauce, jello, A vendor bought our lunch today. I got a salad (BobEvans), popcorn, frozen yogurt, bowl o' beans, yogurt, went to the Honky-Tonk and got 2 hot dogs no buns w/chili, nacho chips w/cheese, and a loaded potato skin. I only ate 1/2 the nachos though. They looked gross with all the cheese dumped on them. (Bleccc !) Got home and had my CottageCheesePineapple. Drank just a little bit less than 1gallon H2O. HaveaHealthyDay !

Progress as of today: 23 lbs lost so far, only 34 lbs to go!

Good morning Raven - Your doing good being able to not have the buns and to actually be able to make the decision not to do something which would have been impossible just a few weeks ago. You are doing real good. Have a great day.

Good morning Raven - You must be craving sugar with the candies. Don't worry you will eventually not have to. You are doing good. Your routine seems to be on track and that is an accomplishment. Just keep pushing on. I believe in you. Have a great day Raven.

OhioRaven on 10/02/2014:
Thanks, Puddy. You guys are a big reason I'm motivated.

biscottibody59 on 10/02/2014:
I've been experimenting with cooking beans in my pressure cooker. I sorta "winged it" this last time and ended up finishing them on the stove.

Being present here is important--keep up the good work!

Thanks, Biscuit. It really is good to be back.

beans and ham in crockpot sounds delicious! Have a great day.

puddles on 10/01/2014:
Good morning Raven - What is ffham? Do you chop it up the ham or full? How much beans do you put? This sounds good but is it very salty? Many questions right. LOL LOL You are getting back to your cooking up a storm it seems. Keep up the good work and have a great day. You are doing good.

OhioRaven on 10/01/2014:
FF=fat free. It was some processed crap that I found at the last minute or else I would have used TurkeyBurger. Beans are a 1 pound bag with 13 different kinds a beans. I added a handful of black beans. (they are good for us). I only salt them after I cook 'em.

You're doing great - even when it isn't perfect, as long as we are making an effort, we're better of than doing nothing at all. Have a great day!

2eggsBeans1bread1cSoup, popcorn, applesauce, popcorn, orange, yogurt, stomach is hurting...2hrs later...better now. Coworkers ordered Chinese. I don't care. Bananna, salad, big pickle, 2tomatoes, chickenbreast, more popcorn, apple, (HonkyTonk)ham&cheese sandwich w/o top bun, 2hotdogs no bun, CottageCheesePineapple, applesauce. Over 1/2 gallon h2o. I feel like this is a pretty good day for me. HaveaHealthyDay !

Destiny65 on 09/26/2014:
Great choices while others ate Chinese food! Love the pic!

museumgirl on 09/26/2014:
Great job on avoiding the chinese food - I swell up like a dirigible if I eat it! If I ever feel deprived when others are eating something I can't/don't want to eat, I just think of all the times I HAVE eaten it, and say to myself, you aren't really missing anything. Usually, it works....

puddles on 09/26/2014:
Good morning Raven - I would agree that it is a good day for you. Not having the buns is great. You are doing a great job and congrats on the Chinese food. Wishing you another great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/26/2014:
it would probably be great as a pizza crust! I didn't use much water, so really, it was way harder than an average pancake for sure.

Pineapple, popcorn, w I thought today was going to be much better. My plan was to just eat the pb sandich and soup at home, But I felt compelled to order something at the Mexican restaurant. But I didn't eat all of it. I'll try to be better next time. Read an article on inflammation of blood vessels. It got me thinking about cutting sugar and flour. Thanks for all your comments, guys. I wish I could comment more on everyone's posts. I'll probably improveon that too. HaveaHealthyDay.

Thanks, Fran !

museumgirl on 09/25/2014:
I follow the anti-inflammatory diet, and I am really happy with it. There are a lot of things I "can't" or choose not to eat right now, but that actually makes it easier for me. I'm kind of an all-or-none person, lol. If you're interested, look at Dr. Weil's food pyramid, it's an easy visual, which I like. Have a good day!

OhioRaven on 09/25/2014:
Ok, I'll check it out.

Starting over, Again, Today. The long weekend is over, no more HonkyTonks, Lodges, Reunions, PigRoast. Brought 1/2 gallon jug of water with me to work, as well as banannas, baked chickenbreast, YogurtNstuff. Gonna try to get back to my "Routine". Weigh in on Mondays. I just did not think it was appropriate for me to post all the disgusting stuff I've been polluting myself with. I gotta try. This unhealthy sh!t is not gonna fix itself. Gotta man-up. Rant over.

RESET is always a good thing! It means you're still here and will make progress! Have a good day!

puddles on 09/24/2014:
Good Morning Raven - Glad to see your re-commitment to your healthy living routine. I am really proud of you. You definitely own up to everything when you mess up and that is a good sign. Looking forward to having you back. Wishing you all the best on this new journey of yours. Have a great day.

You're close to the groove if not already there--good going!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/24/2014:
HEY OHIO MY MAN! lol...do not have any regrets for posting all you were / are eating. we will not judge you for it...many of us have done it too after all. Try to add more vegetables (I prefer cooked ones - roasted) to the mix and that should satisfy you more...not sure if you cook a lot...I don't do it much - but my mom used to roast all kinds of things...asparagus / Brussels / etc...even potatoes...she'd slice potatoes but most other things were whole and she'd coat in olive oil and put I think on a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy cleaning. she added salt and pepper and darn those buggers are tasty!

I takes time for change. I'm still getting used to no coffee. :( no caffeine is something to get used to when at work!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/24/2014:
that's a funny question you asked another DDer..."you ate pajamas?"
