In short, flying sucks regardless of your size! Was up at 3:15 to shower and get to the airport by 4:15 good thing too because it seemed like everyone was leaving Cleveland this morning and long lines from hell getting through security. Flight started boarding at 5:30.

I was stressing big time but asked for a seat belt extender anyway! Needed it by about an inch! I was in Baltimore at 6:40 where I stayed until 10:30. I did meet up with a coworker from Pittsburgh and we sat and ate breakfast. I had a egg, bacon English muffin...and we waited. There were five others on the flight to Long Island but we didn't go and ask everyone their name. We did find one other lady from Sterling,VA. We found the rest once we landed.

They took us to a pizza restaurant for lunch I had 1/2 a tomato, arugula and mozzarella sandwich. After just about fell asleep in the afternoon training. We were released at 4:00. Came back to the hotel and crashed. Had a pulled pork salad with avocados it was pretty good.

Wasn't happy with the calorie count 1956! What the what? Not a good way to start the month but neither is being away from home.

Tomorrow they said something about sightseeing...we will see.

Training starts early at 7:30 long full days!

Peace in NY

Progress as of today: 6.9 lbs lost so far, only 15 lbs to go!

Ran all over town today. My budget conscience husgand, I love him so much, we went to four different stores because each had different sales on stuff he wanted. We still spents lots of money though. And I have issues with paying Sam's club membership money to spend more money in that store, but DH is adament that he gets our money's worth throughout the year. He does most of the shopping so I'll just leave that alone!

I walked my dog! It was very humid and windy today, but totally doable! He sure enjoyed being outside, not that he can't go out anytime he wants (using his doggy door0 he is just nosy and wants to see everything in the neighborhood.

B: two pieces of whole grain toast

L: pizza from Sam's club

D: quinoa/wild rice mix, kale salad and shrimp scampi

S: iced vanilla latte - finally got some milk

Total calories for the day 1875, thanks to the pizza!

I've also had issues with my stomach today, I am attributing this to my trip tomorrow! I am all packed and ready to go I just really don't want to go! I will pull up my big girl pants and do what needs to be done. Flight leaves at 6:00, so we will be up long before the sun! I am scheduled to be in a meeting at 12:30 so tomorrow is going to be hella long!

I am cool with January! I finished off January 6 pounds less. I changed my eating habits and am hoping with the added exercise in February I will be able to drop some more weight. I just need to get through the first week, as I hate being in any kind of pain!

I posted everyday in the month of January - created my good habit!

Only went over my calories maybe three times.

You are doing really great!

grannyannie on 02/01/2016:
Well done on the calories!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/01/2016:
If your calories are at 1875 for sure, then you are on track. That’s good calories for weight loss. Your husband sounds like he’s great with $. I am sure he saves a lot. For me, I am more concerned with convenience. I do what is most convenient for me in general. I do run around food shopping because I have favorite foods in different places but all relatively close to my apartment. As long as his running around is not a pain, it sounds smart to me! Yeah, because Sam’s Club is a bulk item wholesale place, everything adds up. If I had a family (or at least 2 people shopping together), I’d see it as worthwhile to go there. Wholesale items will last a long time because you buy so much at most. But of course buying wholesale is expensive whenever you go bc you are buying so much. It’s not useful for me because I only am buying for one person, myself. And too pricey. Your dinner sounds really good. I love kale salads! Did you buy it at Sam’s Club? My parents once bought a salad mix from Costco but I wasn’t very fond of it – too much added sugar (in the dressing) in my opinion.

We ate at the chinese buffee. DAMNIT! I ate lots of vegetables and chicken. I was doing OK, but had moose tracks ice cream for dessert. Ending the night with 1898 calories.

Came home and did about 25 minutes of the zumba, I think this is a bit advanced for me, I think I will go back to the WATP DVDs until I can move around better.

Went to bed about 10:30 but was back up at 12:45, fell asleep in the recliner until 4:15 and then went back to bed.

Alarm woke me up at 5:00, DH finially got up and out the door by 5:45, I didn't get up but was awake. I slept then until a wretched headache woke me up at 8:30. I went down stairs and ACK there is no milk, so no iced vanilla latte! I had toast for breakfast

It took me awhle to think about getting out of the house, I left at noon. I went to the library for the used book sale. DIdn't find anything I was looking for so headed out to k-mart. I was looking for something new, to take to NY with me, didn't have anything on my mind. I picked up two sweaters, a shirt and a pair of slacks and a new bra. I also picked up a few groceries as I had a taste for goulash.

Got back home and called my mom for the recipe and got the scoop on my sister and all my relatives and mom gave me the recipe. After I hung up I started dinner. Which was the goulash, mash potatoes, salad and the some dinner rolls.

Over did it with the bread today, because while at K-mart I ate some crazy bread from little caesars! I don't think things all the way through some times. I am not mad at myself though. After dinner I did walk Steve around the block. Ending the day with 1607 calories.

Tomorrow, I told DH I would go shopping with him and I will need to get the laundry finished and get my stuff packed. I am already in the nervous stage of this trip and my stomach is acting up already.

Have a good evening!

Your overall calories are good though!

Buffet isn't bad if you stick with tons of veggies. Instead of desert next time, maybe have a diet coke! or something low cal. or decaf coffee or something.

I also indulged last night. had 2200 cals which is much higher than I like lately for a daily average. BUT, by indulging a little bit & not going overboard to the extreme, it actually keeps me wanting to stay extra on track for the rest of the week!

Weight: 315.0

Scale meeting this morning was satisfactory. When I was traveling back and forth visiting my then boyfriend and when i moved up to Ohio I was weighing around 280. I still can't believe I gained over 40 pounds in almost three years, this is so unacceptable. This year has started off good and I will plan on making my successful changes each month.

 I stressed out flying at 280 as well. I made it ok, I didn't like it at all and I didn't need the seat belt extender then, except on one flight. This time I will ask for it, just in case.

I cannot wait until this next week is over! I am sorry if I keep talking about it...but like I've said I haven't been this stressed in over two years. With the flying and DH's knee surgery it will surely suck!

Fell asleep OK last night but was up about 1:30 and was entertaining the dog. He has the hardest time sleeping all night - I think I would too if I slept all day like he does. I went back to bed about 2:30. Still have a sinus draining issue, meds help some, but every once in awhile I'll have a coughing fit.

B: cheerios, milk, iced vanilla latte

S: fruit, nuts, cheese 180 calories

L: left over baked chicken sandwich, yogurt

D: TBD DH said something about going out, he wanted a fish fry, I say yuck! I will find something I like.

Weekend plans are sparse. I am going to a library book sale - books for cheap. And then I am going to a large, large in door garage sale. Sunday, depending on DH's knee there is an owl hike we may check out, again Knee! No dogs allowed or I would take my Steve. Laundry and more stressing. Times like these I wish I drank.

Have a great evening - PEACE!

Last night we had baked chicken and brocoli and cauliflower. It was Ok. Ffinished off the night with 1733 calories. I was up last night with the feeling that I was suffocating. My sinus was draining something awful and of couse this affects my throat, so it is raw. I sat up for a few hours last night just because of this drowning feeling.

I did get up and get ready for work only to leave an hour later. My eyes were so weepy, I think I stressed myself into sickness.

I stopped by the durg store for sinus medicine which stated non drowysy, but as soon as I took it I was out. I slept from 10:30 to 2:00.

DH went to pick up the little girl, I helped her with adding fractions with different denominators, I tell you this stuff is refreshing and sometimes, I don't remember doing it...ever!

B: Multi grain cheerios, milk, iced vanilla latte

L: half chicken breast

D: baked chicken, corn

S: fruit, nuts, cheese - finished the day with 1674 calories. I am ok with this.

My friend wants to meet in Columbia City, Indiana for a Veteran's Day 1/2 marathon! She is so funny. I will think more about this after I survive the NY trip. This trip is the only thing on my mind. I think once I actually get there I will be ok, but getting there is what is stressing me out!

Have a great night! PEACE

Good job on the food and calories. I get occasional sinus problems, usually due to allergic reaction to some scent.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/29/2016:
You are so sweet to your little girl! She is blessed to have you in her life.

I am sorry you are stressed about the NY trip. I understand how it's the main thing on your mind - the main thing stressing me is my sister's upcoming wedding (still 2 months away & i'm already crazy about it!)

Eating is well. Proud of you! Keep up the great work lady!

Left work about 1:00, went home to get the mail (I was expecting a check) picked up the check and met my DH at the little girl's school. We walked in together and his exwife and ex mother-n-law flagged us down and say, sit here! So much for me being across the room from her. I introduced myself to the little girl's grandmother and I was very cordial. We waited until the little girl's teacher made his presentation. The little girl was cute and we were happy. I asked my DH if he was uncomfortable, he says a little, but he stayed. Afterwards the ex asked DH if he just wanted to get the little girl because school was almost out and it was our evening. He said yes, we had about 30 minutes to kill, so he went to the back with me to deposit the check I have been waiting on for a few months. All this time I have this tickle in the back of my throat and not feeling very happy about this.

Anyway, he picked up the little girl and she was in a celebratory mood so for the first time this year we ate out. I had a chicken cordon blu panini and ate a 1/3 of it for dinner. I also ate some fries, but DH ate the majority of them. But I totally caved and we took dessert to go and I ate a piece of peanut butter cheese cake. I enjoyed it very much, but of course I felt guilt afterwards.

Ended the night with 2365 calories, this is more then I've had the entire year...bad decisions!

Get home, both DH and the little girl take showers (DH because he's filthy from work and the little girl because she doesn't get a shower everynight at her mother's house - I don't know why) and then we head out to go to our Nebula in a Bottle craft at the library. We had a lot of fun until the little girl started ****ing (yes there is no other word for it) that she got food color on her hands because she had a hole in her plastic glove. OMG, I can't get dirty, this will be on my hands for days and days. Seriously though, this is from the same girl who wears those nasty ass temporary tattoos all summer long and will never wash them off. This really gets under my skin and times like these I am so glad she doesn't stay at our house full-time. Still have the tickle in the back of my throat and I am trying to cough to get it to go away.

Watched my OU sooners play a basket ball game and started to notice the tickle more and more, DH gave me some sore throat elixer and I went to bed, only to wake up and have a sore thoat, knew it was coming and still couldn't hold it at bay with the medicine. So welcome! Very hoarse and scratchy today, hopefully it will only be here a few days.

B: Multi grain cheerios, milk, iced vanilla latte

L: the rest of my cordon blue panini

S: Sargento healthy break nuts, fruit, cheese

no idea for dinner, still have the chicken I didn't cook last night, so I'll look for some recipes and do it justice.

T-4 days until the flight of "I hope I fit"

NOTE: if you ever plan on going to the city with the RNC will be held, ,be sure to make hotel reservations the next day after the announcement!! We have forecasters trying to come in and assist during the convention and can't even find a hotel room and it is six months away. Unless of course you want the SleezeMotel in slumsville, just saying!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/27/2016:
Hmmmm…Glad you received the check that you were waiting for. Always nice when some money comes your way LOL! I’m glad that everything went down both cordially & peacefully when you went to see your step-daughter at school. Why don’t you call her that? Is she your step-daughter? She sounds sweet. And perfect attendance is so impressive. Good for her. I used to get perfect attendance often when I was in elementary school & middle school & even high school. Not every year, but pretty often! Anyways, but to what I was saying. Your step-daughter seems sweet but I don’t get a good impression of her mother based on what you write. Her mother sounds like she really doesn’t do right for her little girl. Mother sounds lazy and careless especially when taking care of her daughter. It’s important for kids to be clean. I hope that you take care & teach the girl to brush her teeth every morning & night. By brushing teeth 2x a day, you will be helping her big-time down the road. Taking care of teeth is so overlooked by kids & the results are very visible once those kids become adults and need tons of work done on their mouths do to years of negligence. Don’t feel bad about the dessert as once in a while it’s good to go over calories & enjoy a treat. But, I do have a tip. And this is a good tip even for kids. Instead of “deserts” make fruit a dessert. Offer cut up fruit only after meals. That and tea. Or coffee. Or Seltzer. With fruit. Even baked apples once in while are good. If you can change your ways into realizing you don’t ever need dessert and replace it with something else, you can be so much more successful in lowering your calories. I do NOT eat desserts. Instead, an after-meal indulgence for me is usually veggie chips. I eat a meal of all veggies and protein, and have the chips after. They have a little salt & fat which is satisfying as well as the carbs that I need. But not a ton of sugar. And also, chips have potassium. Many times, I feel I like potassium. So, all in all, even though some people don’t agree, I eat the chips instead of other grains or something else, and to me, they are a “healthy indulgence!” Even for the little girl, eating veggies is important. Growing up, my mom made a salad that we always started dinner with. As a child, I never had a weight problem. Only when I turned 17 did I start to have problems when I started eating less healthy options. Especially in college. I had to re-teach & re-train myself! I now overindulge in vegetables. In order to be very full – but still manage a lower weight. Without the vegetables, I would not to maintain my calories or weight as well. What you do for your “daughter” is wonderful. Sorry about the mess on her hands though! Sometimes dairy bothers the throat. Maybe limit the milk until you feel better! Feel better!

innerpeace on 01/28/2016:
Yes, she is my step daughter. And you hit the nail on the head with her biological mother. She is the most awful person I know and have never had a lengthy conversation with her. I took the little girl (just habit) to her first dental appointment last year. The dentist suggested she see an orthodontist, but her mother refuses to let her. She told her that wearing braces would be 'ugly'! We also do a lot of activities at the library, her step-father told her the library is 'stupid'! Who says these things. It has been very hard I know the poor girl has to live two different life styles, depending on whose house she it at the time. Thanks for the vegetable tips, I have learned the last 27 days we do not need sweets at all.

grannyannie on 01/27/2016:
Hope you aren't getting sick. I understand not being able to resist the pb cheesecake. Sometimes the urge is overpowering.

Awesome50 on 01/28/2016:
Hope you're feeling better soon. I have a blended family as well and some times the dynamics that go with it can be very frustrating. My kids are all grown now but with weddings and grandchildren there are still events at times where ex spouses are involved and it can be strained. I think being a parent is difficult at times and being a step parent can have its own set of challenges. On another note I've never had peanut butter cheese cake but just the thought of how good it sounds tells me to stay away from it because I'm sure it would be a struggle to resist indeed!

I put in leave for yesterday to leave at 1:00 to see the little girl's award ceremony. She made merit role and gets a perfect attendance certificate. She had told me it was on Monday, but I received a text from her mother telling me it was on Tuesday. The little girl informed me over the weekend, if I did come, please sit on the other side of the room and not by her mother. Why? It's not like I will tell her she is a horrible mother and she should really help me get rid of her daughter's head lice. I would never start anything in public! Or I should say...I haven't yet.

Got home and got the dog. Walked him a little, but he still didn't produce the stool sample, so I took him anyway. We waited on the Dr. and because my little dog, don't really care for him, he had to be mussled. The doctor looked him over, pushed, prodded and pulled on my little dog and then he tells me...Your dog is fat! OMG. He weighed in at 14.8 pounds. The Dr. said he should be between 9-11. He suggested I pick up his food bowl and not leave it out all day. OK I will try this. I will also bundle up and walk him like we do in the summer, it's just so hard sometimes to make myself go out in the frigid temperatures, good thing he has a jacket.

My legs and thighs are feeling my zumba from Sunday so I didn't even attempt to do it. I got caught up in watching the X Files and biggest loser.

D: grilled chicken with quinoa and brocolli

I finished the day with 1820 calories.

B: special K, iced vanilla latte, milk

S: Sargento healthy breaks

L: turkey, swiss on italian bread.

After the ceremony I am going to the store and then back to the little gir's house to get her and then we will go home.  I am cooking something with chicken again. Haven't figured out what yet. We do have an event at the library at 6:30.

I did see an dressing recipe yesterday I want to try with 1/2 avocado and 1/2 plain yogurt with cilantro and other spiced. It looked like and creamy. I want to use that for something.

Have a great evening. PEACE!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/27/2016:
Sometimes when the body is sore, a day or so of resting of the sore body parts is worthwhile. Continuously exercising sore muscles can cause weakness & injury as I experienced for a couple years. I am so bad with tv watching – as in, it’s hard for me to commit to any show at all. At home, it’s like I have ADD. It’s hard for me to remain on any task for a long time when I’m home. This is why I love the gym! I am out & about. I love working out in a gym environment. I’d not be as successful if I were to work out at home! Very nice calories. 1820 is surely enough for weightloss! Lol, I’m constantly back & forth to the store buying vegetables. In order to be successful, myself, I always need cooked veggies on hand in my fridge. If I don’t have them, I’m far less likely to make good choices. I have learned, especially since early fall, how I do need to take extra steps and make extra trips and be diligent to make sure veggies are always around. Actually, I have needed to unfortunately throw vegetables away lately because I bought too many. But honestly, this seems a better case than not having enough! I hate throwing away, but I love knowing I have them on hand when I need them! Yep I guess dogs are just like us people. They can also get fat with less physical activity. So, by you walking it a little in the winter too, it’ll help both YOU AND THE DOG! Physical activity is good for all of us! That’s why pet owners have a plus of needing to walk their pets because it also helps them get some much needed exercise too. Dressing sounds healthy & tasty. I also have half an avocado (hope it’s still fresh bc I cut it 2 days ago!) to eat with my lunch!

Shortly after posting last night I thought I was dying. I say that because I've never been prone to upset stomachs, nausea, indigestion or heartburn. It hurt to breathe and I felt like there was an air bubble in my heart or something. I thought I was having a heart attack. They say women symptons are different than mens so I really wasn't sure. I asked DH if he had tums or anything, he said he used them all to take some pepto, which I did. I must say this alleviated most of the pain, but it still felt sore going to bed. Thankfully I woke up feeling much better.

I was describing it to DH and he said it was heartburn, so now I know, but it was scary anyway.

MONDAY roared it's ugly head this morning. I had to turn in time cards and made one mistake after another, so I just had to do my work twice instead of once. Usually it only takes me over an hour, today it took almost three...good thing there are only 1.5 hours to go.

Then I must run home and get my dog for his appointment, that I still don't have a stool sample for. Oh well he will just have to miss this test this time.

I rarely get heartburn but when I do I think I'm having a heart attack! It is painful and scary. Red wine will do to me if I drink it within a couple of hours before bed, so I don't.

Good menu.

Sunday, Sunday!

Woke up at 8:00 and was up doing the crossword puzzle. Had my addicting vanilla iced latte. DH made a breakfast casserole with canned biscuits, eggs, turkey bacon and cheese. It was very good but probably not the healthiest option.

I treated the little girl with another lice treatment, I still couldn't get all the nits, I worked on her hair for over two hours. Probably another treatment, if only her mother would do it again tomorrow, to help, but she will not!

I got the laundry finished and watched some Tv. i did do some Zumba which kicked my butt. I then walked the dog, because he has a doctor's appointment tomorrow and I needed a stool sample. Yeah, he didn't have to go.

DH and little girl when to the store to buy a new mouse for the laptop. I am going to be taking it on the NY trip and wanted to be able to go online, while I'm in the hotel room. He also bought a new case for my phone, which I've had for almost three weeks and have dropped like ten times already. I'm so disgusted with phone prices I've made the decision I'm not upgrading again. I'm not putting out anymore money on electronics.

B: vanilla iced latte, breakfast casserole

L: Amish salad

D: left over chicken chili, sour cream, cheese

S: macadamia nut protein bar - (I think I am finished with this one, I think it makes me constipated)

I went over on my calories today, getting up to 1963 - good think I did some kind of exercise!

Lice is def hard to get rid of. when my younger sister had it so long ago (I remember back maybe it was 22 years ago now!) I remember she was crying because my mom was scrubbing and messing with her head so much trying to remove the bugs!

If you have any questions about NY or Long Island, feel free to ask me. I grew up on Long Island & lived there until I was 30yrs old. I'm 33 now. It's a big island - around 2 hours without traffic to get from east to west of it. but, I can tell you basic things if you have any questions!

Total calories for FRiday was 1644, not too bad and I ate a lot of the salads we made for dinner! This is the Amish salad and the detox salad. I even had the little girl help, she made most of the detox salad.

After dinner, I treated the little girls hair for her critter infestation, this will have to be repeated again on Sunday. She says she can't feel them, but I believe I would be able to feel stuff crawling around on my scalp, just saying!

DH was up at 5:30 making his way to work, me and the little girl did not get up until about 8:45, this is late for us. And the dog let us.

We puttered around the house. I put on some chicken chili and then ventured out to Wal-mart where we picked up a few items. I got a new bra to try out and I picked up the Zumba instructional box set with instructions and four CDS, will try this tomorrow.

We came back home and had lunch of sandwiches and then took Steve (the dog) to get his nails trimmed. Afterwards we made it to the park. The deck was made of the vinyl wood stuff and was so slick. Steve would not even walk on it, he just layed there in the snow and wouldn't move. I had to carry him down. It was ery blustery down by the water so we didn't stay too long.

DH got home about 3:30, we hate the chicken chili and watched some TV. We had tickets to see the Odd Couple play so left and got back about 10:30 so it was a pretty full day.

Tomorrow, must tackle the laundry and some house work, maybe a walk its supposed to warm up to 34.

B: white chocolate macadamia nut protein bar

L: turkey swiss on cheese bread

D: chicken chili, sour cream, salad

S: DH brought me a chocolate chunk cookie at the play with a bottle of water, I did eat the cookie and did not feel bad.

Total calories for this day was right at 1600.


Have a great weekend!


Progress as of today: 5.3 lbs lost so far, only 16.6 lbs to go!

Is that your "little girl!?" she looks like she is 13 years old??

Great photos, I love seeing glimpses of other people's lives here on DD because we all have such different ones :) so nice to share.

What damn is that!? it's beautiful with the snow.

Calories are great, nice job. That will definitely help with your weight loss. 1600 would be excellent for me as well. Lately, I keep maintaining bc I am not going low enough in calories for a change. I am trying to teach myself to be satisfied with less (particularly in the mornings at work) and it's a struggle. Weight loss is a struggle I think for the general population lol!

nice of the dog to let you lucky ladies sleep in a bit. sleeping in is so healthy I think especially in wintertime on weekends when I can!

salads look tasty :)

and darn lice! I remember my sister got it when she was in elementary school. it can happy to any kid no matter what. I hope you get them all out of your daughter's hair! sorry you both have to deal with it...spreads so easily in the schools.

This is my step daughter! She turned 11 in December, she is very healthy. We have been fighting lice for awhile. Her mother, who she stays with most of the time, does not help to get rid of it, it is a nightmare. That little fall is on the Black River in Elyria, Ohio.
