I knew that it would be hard to follow the diet over the weekend . Friday night dinner went decently with Salmon & vegetables , but I did have 2 wine spritzers, oh well. The Saturday I won't list all the food but breakfast was ok, lunch was a lobster cookout & not so good as far as following the diet & then no planned dinner so some food that I shouldn't have had. Let's just say that it could have been worse!

For me, it had always been the weekend that I allow myself a few too many indulgences.

Back on plan today!

Thank God for having a chance to start over. Have a great day.

You can do this--the journey doesn't always go in the straightest line!

Hi all-

Yesterday was good- stayed on track with the two week program. Well, had a few additions but nothing to put me over the edge. Food- Breakfast shake with almond milk & fruit, Lunch- salad with tuna & avocado w/ olive oil& balsamic vinegar, Dinner- salmon , rice & asparagus, snacks, yogurt, carrots & hummus, popcorn, and dried mango slices. The last 2 items were not on the menu.

Exercise- golf


Plan to stay on track through lunch & then have a dinner out so may have to make some modifications. Then also away tomorrow so that will be a challenge.

todays exercise- Zumba

I'll report back on Sunday or Monday.

puddles on 09/05/2014:
All with be good. Have a great day

AIPPaleoGal on 09/05/2014:
Oooo... Zumba. I want to try that!

biscottibody59 on 09/05/2014:

Day three of my 2 week diet went well with a couple of minor additions. In my morning shake I used about 1 1/2 - 2 cups of fruit when the plan called for 1/2 c. Also had a small number of pretzels. Otherwise an almost duplicate of yesterday's eating . Breakfast shake with almond milk & fruit, salad with a little turkey for lunch, chicken & broccoli for diner, Snacks of 2 handfuls of almonds, yogurt, hummus w/ carrots. Under 100 gr of carbs & around 1300 calories

Exercise was a healthy walk.

Weigh in shows a around a 2 lb weight loss and although I realize this is mostly water weight , it is a good start.

puddles on 09/04/2014:
Yes it is a good start keep up the good work. Have a great day.

biscottibody59 on 09/04/2014:
Good going--always motivating to have that early loss. Nice to get the walk in too.

Keep up the good work!

Yesterday went well. Day 2 ofhe two week diet. Basically a repeat of day 1- fruit/ almond milk shake, salad w/ turkey & avocado , 2 handfuls of almonds, veg& hummus , chicken, rice & broccoli , yogurt I didn't measure everything but figure the calories are around 1100-1200. The good news is that this is an easy "diet" No cravings, no real feelings of being hungry. I recommend it if you are looking for a good way to get back on track. it's Dr Oz two week diet. Exercise- nothing to speak of.

Weigh in tomorrow.

Hoping to have another successful day.

puddles on 09/03/2014:
That sounds great. It is the most important thing not to be hungry because that keeps us on the right path. Good luck today.

biscottibody59 on 09/03/2014:
The diet sounds like just the thing for you--hope it continues!

I'm not on FB, but I wonder if someone could put up a shoutout on that page to "lure" some members back:-)

Tomorrow . . .

thinkpositive on 09/04/2014:
Good idea! I'll see what I can do.

Had a good day yesterday. Following Dr Oz 14 day diet with some modifications ( having 1 c of coffee) Food: Lots of vegetables, chicken breast, 1/2 c wild rice, 1/2 banana, turkey breast, almonds. Exercise- 1 hr class at gym + housework

I'll weigh in mid week

puddles on 09/02/2014:
Sounds like a healthy day of eating. Wishing you the best.

Hi old DD friends !!

It's September 1 and that seemed like a good time to get back to DD and to make a renewed effort to count calories, exercise consistently and to eat healthy.

I see many new members and it will be good to get to know you. Also hope there are some DD members who were here when I was active.

My plan is to record food & exercise here. Happy memorial day!

Checking in-

yesterday calories were closer to 1600. Need to get them down to closer to 1400. Too many crackers!!

Today- toast & egg for breakfast, cup of soup w/tomato & pasta for lunch, 1/2 piece of bread, apple, handful of nuts, dinner- tilapia w/ panko crumbs, sweet potato, broccoli, glass of wine

exercise- hour aerobic & weights class. Great class.

Hope your day is going well!

Welcome back! I can understand not behaving while away - I was very bad in Thailand! Looks like you enjoyed your stay. :)

I'm back after being away in a warm weather climate. I'd like to say that I stayed on track during my time away but that would be a lie!

So- starting tomorrow- writing down food & calories. Will report results here. Exercise- I have cancelled my gym membership which I may regret as I did use it and did enjoy my zumba and weights & abs class but I joined a class that is close to home and is maybe a bit better geared toward my age range- a good workout that includes aerobic, weights , and stretching. So I'll try this for awhile and I can always rejoin. I was becoming a little concerned about my knees in zumba as much as I would try to minimize the twisting ,there were times when I was putting too much pressure on my knees. I can always go to a zumba class at my community center that is taught at a gentler level.

Will try to catch up with everyone.

Excellent work getting some exercise in! Yep, you're missing out on all the snowy fun here haha. Hoping to get to Butternut again soon though!

liza36 on 02/06/2014:
Sounds like a good day of eats yesterday. Writing it down does help, which I've done off and on. One of my goals is to be consistent with writing it down. Have a great day.

Hi - On vacation in Florida so have been busy. Will be making more of an effort to post during this month away. Not in my usual exercise routine but doing alot of walking. Should start using the pool - will try that today. Watched the finale of the Biggest Loser last night. Very happy for those people but not sure it is a motivator for the average person. it shows that it can be done but also the support that was needed to get those results is not easily found in the real world. Thought the winner looked a bit thin- wonder if she can maintain that- or if she should. Ok- will try to report here on a more regular basis. My goal is to consume about 1400 calories and walk about 45 min.

Umpqua on 02/05/2014:
Good for you, you're missing out on some major snow up here! Your goal is reasonable and I hope you make the most of the pool and the outdoor walking, I'm jealous :)
