I can hardly believe it is October and I'm still in the same spot I've been in, struggling. But it's a new month and today's a new day. I am so tired today. I drank caffeine late last night in hope that I would get motivated to do some cleaning while Roger was away. All it did was keep me up until about 2am. I also kept grazing too. So, today I did not weigh, pulled myself together and am deciding for today that I will just have 3 meals with nothing in between but liquids, mostly water. It will take all the food thoughts out of my head today and I will plan ahead and weigh and measure my food and it's done.

I just want to say thanks Judy for being so consistent and posting the meditation. Your consistency motivates me to keep on. Oh, BTW, I bought some of the kickin chicken seasoning but I forgot what it is used for besides the obvious seasoning of chicken.

Have a great day everyone.

Hi everyone! Thank God it's October! I'm so glad this summer is past.

Linda, I had a feeling you were struggling - I am too but, as you say, it's a new day! I'm so grateful the the Lord blesses us with a fresh start everyday - forget about the past, it's over - don't worry about the future, today has enough worries of it's own. My loose translation of that scripture!

I have a farewell lunch to attend today for someone at the office. I don't know where we are going so I don't know what is going to happen food wise. I do know that waiting for me at home tonight is a big ole burger and a nice crisp lettuce salad with a little tomato and peppers and dressing! So whatever happens, I'll be on track tonight!

Have a great day everyone!

Linda....You can use the Kickin' Chicken seasoning just about anywhere. I use it especially in soups and in scrambled eggs. Just experiment. It's good on grilled hamburgers too.

I bounced UP again this morning. Just 0.4 of a lb, but with the 0.6 yesterday that's a whole pound. I think I have discovered part of the problem though. The Italian sausages I grilled the other day. Since I started eating a couple of those at dinner, I have bounced up. This morning I froze the ones I have left. I should know in the next couple of days if they were the culprit or if something else is going on.

I was not surprised with the 2 bounces up from the off-plan evening (total of 1.8 lbs) but the last 2 day's bounces did surprise me. I just hope it is the sausages. That will be easy to fix (limit sausage intake). If it's something else going on, I don't have a clue as to what it could be. I'll let you know what happens.

It's raining right now, but the temperature isn't bad. It's 63* and there isn't any wind so it doesn't feel bad and I am able to have my place open, which I like, although it's a little too cool to sit out on my deck.

Have a good day everyone....KUTGW....

Yes...if I didn't things would REALLY get out of hand. I hate the bouncing around I do, but I need to know what's going on to keep a handle on things. I don't mind the "normal" bouncing up I do, (e.g., unexplained 0.2 or 0.4 every so often), that seems to be normal "for me" anyway....but I do get concerned when it is several days in a row. Then I look for a cause (like the possible cause this time of the sausages).

I read somewhere on the site that what we eat today won't show up on the scale until day over tomorrow (2 days). I don't know if that's true or not.

I found a new thread this morning asking people of they found a meal that made them drop quickly. There were some interesting suggestions on it. You may want to look it up. I'm going to try some of the ideas.

I don't know how to paste it on here. It's in the Main Lobby the 16th down I think. Starts with Do You Have a Meal....

Let me know if you find it or not.

Quick check in to mark my spot.

Welcome Lawan! We are a small but supportive, friendly group. Post often so we get to know you.

I've not seen "Kickin' Chicken" before. What is it and where in my grocery store can I find it?

I got them from a girlfriend today and sent them on to family. Is that where you picked up Barbie? One of my passwords here at work is "Wonder Woman" so I couldn't resist. I don't smoke, or have long hair or a dog, but the rest is pretty accurate - HA!!!!!

Gibby....Kickin' Chicken is a spice/seasoning made by the Weber Grill company. I get it at Sam's. It's really good...and not just on chicken.

Here's a pic...it's the middle one. It comes in a grinder container so it's always fresh....

I was looking around the Weber spice website and found this recipe. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks REALLY good. Without the bun, of course....

Double-Bacon Gourmet Cheeseburgers

To make these LC, skip the buns, of course....

PREP TIME: 25 minutes
GRILLING TIME: 8 TO 10 minutes for medium

10 slices bacon
1 1/2 pounds ground chuck (80% lean)
1 tablespoon Weber® Grill Creations® Gourmet Burger Seasoning
4 thin slices cheese, Cheddar or Monterey jack
4 hamburger buns (skip if doing LC)
4 medium slices ripe tomato (optional)
4 pieces lettuce (optional)

1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook half of the bacon at a time until crisp, about 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Drain each batch of bacon on paper towels.

2. Crumble 2 slices of bacon into a medium bowl. Mix in the ground chuck and the Weber® Grill Creations® Gourmet Burger. Shape into 4 patties, each about 3/4 inch thick.

3. Grill the patties over Direct High heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until medium, or to desired doneness (8 to 10 minutes for medium), turning once when the patties release easily from the grate. During the last couple minutes of grilling, put a slice of cheese on each patty to melt. Also toast the hamburger buns, cut side down, over Direct High heat if using. Assemble the burgers on buns with the tomato and lettuce, and top with the remaining bacon slices.

MAKES 4 SERVINGS

Lawan. Like Liz said, congrats on your loss so far.

Well, I'm off to read the thread on food that make you lose weight and I'm going to eat them ALL.

Good morning....I guess it was the Italian Sausage. I was DOWN 0.8 of a pound this morning. Will be on plan with NO sausages today. More DOWN tomorrow I hope.

It's cold and dreary here today. We are way below normal as far as our temperature goes (53*) AND there's a wind (gusting to 45mph) so it feels even worse than it is.

Here's Today's Meditation


Gotta run....WCBL....

Here's a good Chicken Recipe.

Kick ’N Chicken Breasts with Yogurt-Cucumber Sauce

PREP TIME: 10 MINUTES
GRILLING TIME: 8 TO 10 MINUTES

SAUCE
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1/3 cup coarsely grated English (seedless) cucumber
1 teaspoon Weber® Grill Creations® Kick ’N Chicken™ Seasoning
===============================================

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, about 6 ounces each
Extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Weber® Grill Creations® Kick 'N Chicken™
16 very thin slices English (seedless) cucumber, cut in half crosswise

1. In a small bowl mix the sauce ingredients.

2. Lightly coat the chicken on both sides with oil. Season evenly with the Weber Kick 'N Chicken, pressing the seasoning into the meat. Grill the chicken over Direct Medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until the meat is firm to the touch and no longer pink in the center, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once. Serve the chicken warm with the sauce and cucumber slices.

Hey everybody!

I'm LOVING this weather! High of 75 with clear gorgeous skies


JUDY~ thanks for the recipes! Those look really good. I'll have to look for the kickin chicken. Does it have sugar or msg? The sauce sounds similar to taziki sauce.
I'm glad your weight is going down again. Sausage always makes me pick up water weight. I seem to be really sensitive to salt. I can easily pick up 3lbs in ONE day after too much salt.

LIZZIE~ I'm sorry to hear your house still hasn't sold. It is such a tough market. There are 4 houses in my neighborhood that have been for sale for MONTHS. When I bought my house 5 years ago it was on the market for under a week. They had 7 other offers
I'm sending lots of positive thoughts and prayers for your house to sell


Linda, Gibby, Vicki, Lei, Sam, Yvonne (sorry if I missed anyone) I've gotta run and cook some grub for DH
