Popcorn. It's been my Go-To food when I get a case of the hungries at work. I'm gonna have to swap this out for something better.

Have a healthy day.

grannyannie on 08/31/2013:
You're doing great, Ohio! Maybe trade popcorn for a low cal healthy muffin?


biscottibody59 on 08/31/2013:
Hope you figure out a better alternative to the popcorn!


hollybelle on 09/01/2013:
Ah, popcorn. I had been eating the SmartPop brand and it's very healthy. I fell "prey" to a free sample at Sam;s Club the other day for some cheese and caramel popcorn mix....Husband has been helping eat it though! Have a good weekend.

Pastors wife was commenting on my weight loss. All good things. Not the scary stuff. Pastor said I'm 1/2 the man I used to be. I'm thinking of approaching them about me starting a weight loss ministry on New Years day. I'm sure it would be a challenge for me. I'm thinking of talking nutrition and working-out to Richard Simmons videos. Praying about this.

Have a Healthy Friday !

Feels great when someone comments, doesn't it? My husband used to tell people I was half the woman I used to be! LOL.


legcramps on 08/30/2013:
That's a great idea OR, and I think you'd be awesome at it :)


biscottibody59 on 08/30/2013:
Looks like a good day!


V on 08/30/2013:
I think you would make a perfect coach/mentor for your church group! If you need suggestions or ideas I am willing to give some advice..Super excited for you Coach Ohio :)

OhioRaven on 08/31/2013:
Wow, V. That would be awesome. Suggestions from the whole group would be awesome. I really think I can get between the ears of some of the people who WANT help. I already know doing something like this would keep ME moving in the right direction, but its really not about me. Thanks, V.

My Stevia isn't turning out so well. I spun the dried leaves in the coffee grinder just like the YouTube video showed, but it doesn't mix well in my green tea. I get a little "sludge" line around my cup. It is super sweet though. And makes the tea super green. I guess more research is needed.

Have a Healthy, Happy Thursday !

hollybelle on 08/29/2013:
I wondered about that stevia process. Interesting! It's neat that you grew it and tried. Have a great one!


legcramps on 08/29/2013:
Hey OR, hope your day today isn't too busy and you can get a ride in or something. And if not... name this tune "mama said there'd be days like this". LOL.


biscottibody59 on 08/29/2013:
How about a tincture--I've seen a couple of shows with an herbalist using that technique. It appears to be a little involved, but is the best thing for using many herbs. Hope you figure it out!


OArecovery on 08/29/2013:
Amazing that you tried making your own stevia! hope you are having a great day :) Thanks for your words- I think I take myself a little too seriously a lot of the time so going to try and worry less!

I like your foods, definitely my type of palate. lately I eat lots of pickled foods, due to my boss.....he makes pickled everything!


hollybelle on 08/29/2013:
Biscotti beat me to it - I could've named it though - Hey maybe you should have a "name that tune" on your diary everyday so we can use our memory skills! LOL!!!!! Great bike ride!

I finally made the soup again. Need to dig up the rest of the SweetPotatoes and cure them. The Stevia plants need dried out and run through the coffee grinder. Sowing turnips tonight after work. Cucumbers, greenbeans, beets and zucchini (courgette) are going strong. Tomatoes are done for the year. Cabbage didn't really turn out. Too many bugs ate the leaves...I guess they tasted good.

Have a Healthy Day !

And let there be SOUP!! LOL Have a good evening Ohio :)

OhioRaven on 08/27/2013:
Yes, V. Soup is good food.


hollybelle on 08/27/2013:
Turnips - see my last two breakfast menus!! So you grow stevia? Have you done that before? Do you dry out the leaves and make a liquid or do you do something else with it once it's dried? Very interesting! Too bad the cabbages didn't make it - but.....

I lost 22Lbs in 3months with weightwatchers, 60Lbs in 8months with DD.

I'd really like to know just how long some of you guys have been around here at the DD website. I think I know who some of the real veterans are.

Have a Healthy Day !

grannyannie on 08/23/2013:
You've done such an amazing job, Ohio!

I've been here two years. I had lost about 20 pounds already but then was on a plateau the whole summer. So joined up for the support and reached my goal in about 3 months.


hollybelle on 08/23/2013:
So DDs works about as well as WW, heh? LOL! If you click on the search icon above (looks like a magnifying glass) you can see how long EVERYONE has been here because you can see "member since...." info - guess that gives me away, huh? Member since 2006!

OhioRaven on 08/23/2013:
Hey, wow ! It works ! I'm a babe in the woods here. Ha-ha !


liza36 on 08/23/2013:
I've been around since 2005! Long time. My weight has gone up and down during that time. But I love the support so I keep coming back!

OhioRaven on 08/23/2013:
Yes, a Lots of great support on here :v)


Umpqua on 08/23/2013:
I joined in December 2003, so I'm coming up on my 10-year anniversary! Biscotti and Maria were here before me, and I think legcramps joined around the same time as me. This is a lifelong battle for most of us.

OhioRaven on 08/23/2013:
Wow! You guys should get t-shirts or something. I can see where I wouldn't last away from here. I need the accountability.


biscottibody59 on 08/23/2013:
I've been posting regularly except for a few long, longer and shortish breaks for a really long time:-)

Glad you're here!

OhioRaven on 08/23/2013:
Thanks, Biscuit. I can see you're like one of the founding members here. It's good to be here.


biscottibody59 on 08/23/2013:
There used to be a dropdown listing of all members. I'm waaay waaaaay waaaaaaay far away from the founding members. (You just can't see them the way the site is configured now.) DDs had probably 20-30 daily or nearly daily posting diarists at one time. Activity always spiked in January of course. It's a very quiet place now compared to when I first started posting.


V on 08/23/2013:
Hey Ohio!! I've been a member for 4 years...Although I was at my "desired weight" in 2010, I still blog because I love this group and it keep me motivated..

Have a great weekend :)
