KathyBlue on 11/03/2010:
one day won't do you any harm, now concentrate on the following days :) Try to distract yourself from food issues! :)

loveray on 11/03/2010:
this colder weather always throws me off track it seems - just try to stick to plan as best as you can and be easy on yourself :) xo

sweetpea1977 on 11/03/2010:
Today's plan sounds good. Now stick to it missy. :)

LOL, yes, a girl can dream. I was joking with hubby telling him I wanted the refrigerator that has a built in tv so I could watch tv while I cooked with my double ovens and my range that can bring water to a boil in under 60 seconds. Im super-excited that my new fridge has a water and ice dispenser. I am also excited that my new stove top range wont have the vent in the middle of the burners and will have the burner knobs on the part against the wall...out of curious little boys' reach! Im really excited to have a full size and mounted microwave. The little dinky one we bought to get by didnt even cook bacon properly and it takes up precious counterspace! And my dishwasher is so noisy and it does a horrible job of cleaning due to its horrible design, so Im excited that a new one will be taking its place. Yes, Im quite happy about my new appliances. :)

lifestylechange on 11/03/2010:
YUMMMM YUMMM that tofu taco salad sounds so yummy!!! Hope you have a great day!!!

just42day on 11/03/2010:
Sorry you've been struggling like me w/unnecessarily high caloric days. It's the nights that kill me (I know I do it to myself but it's still maddening). Hope today's better for both of us! :)

Umpqua on 11/03/2010:
Your plan for today sounds good, especially dinner. Yummo! Hope you have a great evening.

moogy on 11/03/2010:
There is probably something dancing away in your subconscious trying to get out. Probably something you don't want out. I hope you are able to stick with your plan today. You are in charge of you!! Have a good one.

V on 11/03/2010:
i just looked at yesterday's menu and it is quite apparent that you are a snacker, which is not bad but you must pick and choose your battles...All you really have to do is cut back on them and save the treats for something special, like the glasses of wine or even allow snacks every other day or once a week if you feel that you can do this, I know you can

We made it back from Washington Alive!!!  The Rally was AMAZING... We couldn't really see or hear (a little of each, neither very well, lol) but just being there a part of it was really intense and amazing:)   I walked somewhere between 7 and 9 miles in flip flops that day and severely sprained my foot.... I'm getting old!!!   I couldn't walk at all Saturday night, so I was lame and didn't go out drinking for halloween in DC....  Skinnygrl was a champ though and she went out...   I saved some money and calories at least I guess:)  

I was not at all healthy over the weekend, but I planned on it so I am ok with the consequences... I made husband sit down last night and we made a workout/dinner plan for the week to keep us on task...   Today we are going to our favorite Salad creations after we lift weights at the gym...   I am feeling refreshed and motivated!  Only 19 days to be completely on point until we leave for our cruise!!!

B:  Greek yogurt (130) w/ meuslix (100) 230

S:  popcorn ball 100

L:  butternut squash ravioli healthy choice w/ added cauliflower (300) pear (50) vitamuffin (100)  450

S:  Mandarin oranges (40) bran crisps and laughing cow (60) 100

S:  special k bar 90

D:  Giant salad w/ MANY VEGGIES (50) swiss cheese (100) chick peas/edamame (100) wontons (50) sliced almonds (50) spicy asian sesame dressing (150) 500

S:  Baked lays (130) mashed cauliflower (150) 280

Total so far: 1750

Goal: 1400-1800

Workout was lifting triceps, chest, and shoulders...

Progress as of today: 19 lbs lost so far, only 24.8 lbs to go!

sweetpea1977 on 11/01/2010:
I saw your question about how to count the challenge points and answered them there. Yes, you count the points on a daily basis. So, for example, if you do 6 meatless days in one week, you earn 12 points for meeting that goal. If you do a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise every day this week, you earn 14 points for reaching that goal. Im asking everyone to copy and paste the goals in an email and put the total of points they earned for each challenge next to them as well as provide a grand total at the bottom. The individual who has the most points will be announced the winner, but I will also be doing announcements for the most points earned on particular goals. :)

just42day on 11/01/2010:
Good for you w/all your plans for food and vacation. Glad you had good time at the rally but sorry about your foot. :)

V on 11/01/2010:
Wow sorry about the sprain :( I hope it doesn't hurt too much!

legcramps on 11/01/2010:
You can do it! Hope that ankle is feeling better soon.

sweetpea1977 on 11/01/2010:
Glad you had a good time at the rally. I hope your foot recovers quickly!!

Food plan sounds great! Enjoy!

hollybelle on 11/01/2010:
Glad you hear you had fun! Like I said - I wish I could have gone. Watch Stewart and Colbert almost every night! Tomorrow can't come fast enough - holding my breath on the outcome, but I don't think it will do anygood - the handwriting is on the wall.

happy you were able to get your workout in today! Well done :) Menu looks yummo!

Ugghhh today is DEFINITELY a hungry day!

*I've just gotten a burst of motivation so I'm hoping to do some weights (I have 10# dumbbells) and maybe sme wii fit that doesn't pound on my knees... Maybe some hula hoop and boxing... No running or jumping there:)*  I will let you girls know what I end up doing!

Well I finally stepped on the scale today after weeks of not looking and it was 177...  ugghhh... but totally my fault...  Yesterday ended good... about 1700 calories and I did go for a run, unfortunately I seem to have mildly hyperpextended my knee... not sure if it was running or Monday's wii fit but either way, it kept giving out on me in the grocery store last night, then when I was cleaning up my living room last night, I bent down to pick somthing up (bent with the knees of course) and it had shooting pains... So I will probably take today off from working out...

Here is today's plan:

B:  Homemade sandwich w/ bagel thin (110) egg (75) lite cheese (40) 225

S:  1 twizzler... oops   40

S:  Cashews 120

S:  popcorn 100

S:  kashi granola bar 120

L:  healthy choice meal (300) raspberries (30) 330

S:  bran crisps and laughing cow (60) pear (50) 110

S:  special k bar 90

D:  Spicy Thai burrito 500

Total: 1635

Goal: 1400-1800

Progress as of today: 19 lbs lost so far, only 24.8 lbs to go!

just42day on 10/27/2010:
Can't believe I didn't think of adding sugar to de-spice! Will definitely give that a try. Thanks!

sweetpea1977 on 10/27/2010:
Ouch! Very smart to take a day off from exercise. I hope your knee feels better soon!

tangalyn on 10/27/2010:
ouch :( i hope ur knee feels better soon... dont worry much bout those extra pounds i am sure u will have no trouble getting them off again.. thank u for ur challenge today, that is definately something i should be doing everyday, as i know i eat until stuffed usually and that is never acceptable... not even with healthy foods, hope u have a great day!

Umpqua on 10/27/2010:
Spicy Thai burrito sounds wonderful!

loveray on 10/27/2010:
sounds like a great day!! enjoy:) xo

legcramps on 10/27/2010:
I love the hula hoop on Wii Fit! Take care of that knee.

moogy on 10/27/2010:
Please please, video the hula hoop session, I could do with some humour in my life.I find little girls humourous doing that, I think a grown woman would crack me up. Sounds like you may need to take it easy with your knee, but there was another video moment, your knee giving out on you in the supermarket. I am sorry to make fun of you but I seem to be in a bit of a silly mood. I hope you take it in the way it is meant, just the funny stuff we do to ourselves. I opened a bottle of what I thought was still water in the car yesterday, it wasn't and it sprayed everywhere. That would have made a good video as well, my daughter and I were both screaming, then I got the usual I am getting old talk and didn't I check on the label (I didn't have my glasses on, so no, I hadn't checked). See funny stuff everywhere!!! Have a good day.

V on 10/27/2010:
Oh my!!!! I hope your issues with your knee is resolved...I so envy you and skinnygirl because although running is my alltime fav form or exercise, because of my bum knee from years of gymnastics and a car accident I only run every once in a while :( Nuprin has a great cream for the aches

Hello Everyone!

SO Glad the site is up and running again!  I know many of you did well while the site was down... I did not do well...  Completely my own fault, but I really did poorly... I haven't weighed myself since the site has gone down and I'm afraid!  Luckily, in anticipation of the site coming back up, I did quite well yesterday I even did about 30 minutes of intense Wii fit...  and today should be good as well... Onward!

Its scary how much I've come to depend on this site for accountability and support... I know I should be accountable to myself, but this site REALLY helps me!

B:  Egg (75) cheese (80) hot sauce (0) on rye toast (140) 295 *CHECK*

S:  popcorn 100

L:  Giant salad w/ veggies (50) blue cheese (60) wontons (50) veggie burger (150) balsalmic vinegrette (90) 400 *CHECK*

S:  granola bar (140) apple (50) 190

S:  CRAVING toast w/ peanut butter... 1 slice whole grain toast (70) w/ 1/2T PB (50) 120 *CHECK*  Not sure why but this was AMAZING today!

ANOTER toast and peanutbutter 120

D: Veggie burger (140) on bagel thin (110) broccoli (25) 2 servings baked fries (220)  495 

S:  Popcorn Ball 100

S:  pomeganate 50

Total so far: 1765

Goal: 1400-1800

Workout plan... not sure... its unseasonably warm so I may go running or I may do willpower and grace at the gym... I will update!

Progress as of today: 19 lbs lost so far, only 24.8 lbs to go!

just42day on 10/26/2010:
Glad you had a good day yesterday and I'm sure you'll have another today! I think many of us struggled a bit while the site was down but now neither of us has an excuse so let's both move forward! I know you can do it!

sweetpea1977 on 10/26/2010:
I've missed you!!

Im sure having the site back will get you back on track in no time. Keep posting!!

tangalyn on 10/26/2010:
i did not do well either, lets committ to getting back on track, hope u have a great day

Umpqua on 10/26/2010:
I've been kind of off track myself but I've been good the past few days in anticipation of the site getting back up. So good to see you here again!

Sorry you didn't do well while the site was down, but it sounds like you're getting back on track! Have a great day today!

moogy on 10/26/2010:
Yes, I am in your camp, I am afraid I fell to bits without my team. I kept trying to get on my own two feet but just fell over every time. I did enjoy your last minute bit of frantic excercise, as if that would really make a difference!!! Hey, it's more than I did. As you say onward!!!

Maria7 on 10/26/2010:
I am craving peanut butter, too! :-)

Sofia on 10/26/2010:
I'm sure you'll get back on track with the site up and running again! Good job on the food and exercise, I love me some wii fit as well. Hope you have a lovely day!

Weight: 174.8

Good morning everyone!  I was super excited to step on the scale and see...... 175.8... all vacation damage GONE... not sure if I mentioned this but I also had TOM  while in Texas so a bit of the gain was almost definitely attributible to that...  Yesterday went really well food wise, didn't exercise, but I WILL TODAY! 

Dinner last night was actually this dinner kit from Target... It was one of their balanced choices or somthing like that... but anyway it was tex mex beans with spicy corn bread topping...  I also added a can of red beans just for more fiber and fillingness... it was surprisingly delicious!  I was quite skeptical...  It also only had 500 mg sodium per serving, which for somthing processed like that was pretty darn low!!  It is 370 calories per serving and 1.5 servings is PLENTY to fill you up...   Just thought I'd mention it as it is a nice, quick meal... Cheap and surprisingly YUMMY!

Still didn't go grocery shopping, but I will suck it up and go either today or tomorrow...  I'm trying to really cut down on spending and its amazing what you can find in your house to eat even when you think you have "no food" lol

B:  Green tea (0) weight watchers bagel  (150) weight watchers cream cheese (60) 210 *CHECK*

S:  Raw Nori "Power Wrap" 80 *CHECK*

S:  bran crisps (25) laughing cow wedge (35) 60 *CHECK*

L:  Leftover tex-mex beans and corn bread (470) apple (50) 520 *CHECK*

S:  mini popcorn bag  100 *CHECK*

S:  Very small spoonful peanut butter:)  70

D:  I'm thinking either vegetarian goulash or red lentil spaghetti squash...  I have everything for both of these dishes!!   Vegetarian Goulash 400

S:  Only 8s ice cream 200  the ice cream shop is only open through Halloween so I need to get it while I can!

Total so far: 1640

Goal: 1400-1800

Progress as of today: 19 lbs lost so far, only 24.8 lbs to go!

sweetpea1977 on 10/13/2010:
hahaha, I laughed so hard when you wrote "its amazing what you can find in your house to eat even when you think you have 'no food'" as I have been there and done that! I also have the same issue with clothes. I always say "I have nothing to wear!" but I have a full closet of clothes, lol.

Anyway, that Target dinner sounds great!! Every now and then, it is nice to have an easy meal on hand on really difficult days. Sodium is my biggest issues with pre-made meals, but 500 mg isnt bad at all. Thanks for letting us know about it!

legcramps on 10/13/2010:
I totally agree with you about thinking you have no food in the house when really there's a lot of possibilities. I'm trying to save some money too, so haven't been buying all the groceries I usually do. In going through all my cupboards, i've found pumpkin filling, lots of soup mixes, brown rice, oats - gosh, lots of stuff! With a garden full of potatoes and carrots - just add meat!

just42day on 10/13/2010:
Fabulous job ridding yourself of vacation lbs! You go girl! :)

chidogs on 10/13/2010:
Congrats on your success. I know I always have stuff in the house, problem is it is usually the WRONG kind of stuff! You meals sound great, and that is good to have something quick you can fix in a pinch.

Not bad for having been gone. The countdown to vacation begins! Have a good day.

skinnygrlwithin on 10/12/2010:
I think you did amazing the entire time you were gone and I'm VERY proud of you!!! How did the hubby survive without food?? Pizza lol =) When your life calms down we must hang out!

Welcome back! I think you did extremely well while on vaca! Less than 2 lbs gain is fabulous and I'm sure it's very temporary. Great job AND you got some running in. Impressive! :)

KathyBlue on 10/12/2010:
ahh how rude am I???!! I think you did a GREAT JOB and 2 lbs loss is nothing, it can be from anything... I remember that st...d scale showed me a 2,2 lb gain when I arrived home... then a day later I got a sudden 3 lbs loss... because the plane trip also messed me up...

V on 10/12/2010:
Good job today!!! :)

moogy on 10/12/2010:
Definitely time to get really tough with so little time before you go on holidays. You can do it!!

Maria7 on 10/12/2010:

*UPDATE*  Just booked a 9 night cruise from New Jersey to Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Labadee Haiti (Cruise line private island) and St Thomas for thanksgiving week!!!  for Myself, husband and stepdaughter... Cannot Wait!

Good Morning Everyone!  Last night I definitely over indulged...  I had... Cheese and crackers... chips and salsa/guacamole... and 1.5 glass of sangria...   then for dinner I had a piece of salmon, lots of salad and a few baked french fries... Everything was delicious on a positive note...

I'm sitting here right now trying to resist these AMAZING looking muffins that my hosts bought for breakfast... I think its a losing battle!!!  Not sure about today's plan but I will try to report back!

B:  Oatmeal w/ sliced almonds, flaxseed and 1/2 banana

S:  Few toasted almond slivers

L: Tofu veggie stir fry...

S:  Chips salsa/guacamole

D:  Pizza... I will try to limit myself to 2 pieces!  salad

Progress as of today: 19 lbs lost so far, only 24.8 lbs to go!

i dont think u did too bad last night, if those things were available to me, im sure i would have done FAR worse, so dont let it get ya down.. ur also on vacation, so u sorta do have a good excuse if ur not 100% on track :) but i still think u r doing awesome!!!! hope u have a great day!!

skinnygrlwithin on 10/08/2010:
I agree with tangalyn... you're doing an amazing job. Nothing you ate was crazy out of control unhealthy... and as long as you controlled portions of the not soo good stuff I think you're doing just fine!

sweetpea1977 on 10/08/2010:
I would have gone crazy with the Sangria. I love, love, love sangria!! Good job for having less than 2 glasses! Foods weren't that bad either, so dont stress!

hollybelle on 10/08/2010:
Enjoy your vacation and some "treats" but fast-forward to that moment when your trip is over, you are back home and you are thinking back on your food choices.......now rewind - you are here and making those choices now. :o)

chidogs on 10/08/2010:
That sounds so yummy good! But you are strong so now it is out of your system and you can get back on target! Still, keep enjoying your vacation, that's what they are for.

loveray on 10/08/2010:
sounds like you did pretty well!! i know how you feel after an event though. i did really well at mine last night, but only because i was networking and chatting with people like crazy. i am going to a wedding tonight, so i hope there will be somewhat sane choices:) hope you have a great weekend! xo

moogy on 10/08/2010:
Oh Oh, I wish I had been in time to whisk away those muffins. Sounds like you have been enjoying yourself. I hope you stay on the wagon most of the time, you know how long it takes to undo a few minutes of impulse eating.:)

moogy on 10/08/2010:
Well done getmeback, a tough woman making tough decisions!!!!!:)

just42day on 10/08/2010:
Good food and great friends. What could be better? Sounds like you're really enjoying yourself - as well you should. :)

moogy on 10/08/2010:
Well, the cruise sounds lovely - plus, you don't have to wait too long to go on it, bonus!!!

skinnygrlwithin on 10/08/2010:
Hahaha I would love to go... but even if I could swing the money which I don't think I can I don't think I coud request that kind of time off... I will just have to live vicariously through yoU!! hahahaha! I miss you as well!! Sunday is going to be awful without you!!! hahaha

tangalyn on 10/08/2010:
happy for u about the cruise, very exciting!!!

V on 10/08/2010:
Thanksgiving is far enough away for you to get closer to your goal so enjoy your trip now and continue to get good workouts and you will be fine!!!

skinnygrlwithin on 10/07/2010:
Hey! No I'm not working tonight so we can definitely catch up. I'm sorry I didn't call you last night when I said I would...I went from work to Tori's to shopping to dinner to the Randy thing. And yes, the 1000-1100 calorie plan is just for the next three days until Sunday... I plan on running Sunday morning as well, but going back to my 1400 calories a day. As for the Randy situation...last night was one of those days, when emotions and hormones and feelings combines to one big thing that I never have mastered when it comes to him. I do love him, but I KNOW...I still KNOW that unless and until he changes there can be no "us." And my feelings for him won't stop me from looking for an amazing guy with all his good qualities and none of his hang ups. Right now though I'm still not ready for any man...Randy or otherwise. But when I do feel ready I'm jumping back on the band wagon and starting my search again. And if the time seems appropriate I will say to him what I've said to you a million times, I will explain my thoughts on the matter and once again walk away if nothing changes. On a less drama filled note... I wanted to tell you how amazing I think you're doing with your diet out there!! KEEP IT UP!!!

Umpqua on 10/07/2010:
Umm, fajitas. Enjoy!

legcramps on 10/07/2010:
Great job! Enjoy lunch, sounds yummy.

sweetpea1977 on 10/07/2010:
Good job on the run. I hope you enjoy those fajitas!

chidogs on 10/07/2010:
Just read on the forum topic of where everyone is from that you plan on moving to San Diego in 4 or 5 years. Haha! Me too, just bought a condo there. My daughter has 2 - 3 (maybe 4) years of university to finish, and once she's done we will move! See you there. :)

sweetpea1977 on 10/07/2010:
Wow, you did excellent at lunch. Good going! BTW, amaretto gelato sounds interesting!

V on 10/07/2010:
You are doing great girl!!!! See you have NADA to worry about! Have a good one :)
