She tries! The kids are off school today so I think we're going to the mall just to get out of the house for awhile. I wish it was warm enough to play outside or go to the park. Nothing too exciting today...

How about you guys?

Thanks Karen!

Lotus - Ugh, I'm right there with you. I usually weigh daily, but I'm going to skip it until Saturday.

Hopefully I'll be able to get on the treadmill later. The kids are out of school today and I feel like I've been yelling "No" all morning. Agggggg....lol.

I wasn't going to step on the scale until the weekend, but the suspense was killing me. I've been on plan all week and was hoping I'd at least stay the same (it's TOM time). To my surprise I'm down 2 pounds! I hope it's not a fluke!

How's it been going with you guys?

TOM and I decided to go steady yesterday


So I will refrain for a week!


I am doing a diet adjust for the next 2 months. I have to be in a wedding in April so I need to start having some results!

Going to sort of combine CAD and atkins for the next 2 months. VLC for breakfast and lunch and then dinner under 30g of carb. After that back to CAD because I like it!

Lotus - Sounds like a good plan! My brother's wedding is April 19th, so I've had to kick it into gear too...lol. Our 10 year anniversary is in May so that's a little more incentive as well!

This wedding is my BIL. We ALL are in it! DH is best man, both kids are junior bridesmaids, and I am a bridesmaid. Plus we are putting on a shower for her and gifts.

We JUST did this exact same thing 18 months ago with DH' sister.


I should be super skinny, not sure how we are affording food after all this nonsense!

Wow! Weddings are expensive, that's for sure. I need to start putting some $$ away for the shower, gifts, and outfits for us Thankfully my brother's will be very small, I think they're only having 2 people each. My 5 year old will be the ring bearer, can't wait to seem him in his little tux.

Stupid TOM is driving me nuts with the cravings! Funny thing I was super cranky this time too, must be a correlation. Well I suppose maybe just emotional eating.


Weighed in and still 218. But TOM should end this week AND the new eating plan is in full effect so a couple lbs decide to take a hike this week!

Karen - Sometimes quiet and slow is nice!

Lotus - Woohooo!! You can do it!

I did good and stayed on plan all week... except for last night Hopefully it won't affect me too much. I'm going to hop on the treadmill later and start planning my meals for this week. Hope you all have a good day!

Eh..we are human! I always expect to have days like that! LOL

I started awhile ago planning meals, it has made a big difference is time management as well as grocery bills! I am wasting a lot less now.


We have a snow day today, I was scheduled off work anyway but its nice to not have to get kids ready for school!

Aw, middle school! I'm dreading it....LOL. Is your oldest excited? I still have a few years before I need to worry! haha

Yes, meal planning has been a life saver for us. I'm amazed at how much I'm saving and wondering why I never did this before! It makes life so much easier.

I'm at 191 this morning! Sooooo close to the 180s now. It's been over 2 years since I've seen that on the scale.

Oh my gosh...your dh LOL! And yea for art!! That was always my favorite class in school. I miss those days. My friends and I always joke that we never knew how good we had it!

Hopefully I'll see the 80s this week. Dh bough chips and salsa yesterday and of course I had to partake. I'm chugging water today and telling myself I'm just retaining water from all the sodium...aggggh

Yeah I don't know what is in there! I could go eat a greasy burger from somewhere and not feel sick like that. Maybe tired but not ill.

I am going to be in the kitchen all day today! I am hosting a bridal shower next weekend and am going to start baking. Oh and got some chicken leg and thighs soaking in some buttermilk for fried chicken tonight for dinner!

Maybe I should make it tomorrow *after* i weigh in!

DD22 is taking a bull to Oklahoma and a horse to KS today and tomorrow. And she is planning a SuperBowl party for her in-laws and family!!!!!!!

so I have 6 lbs ground beef out, and tomorrow is a Kettle of chili for her party. And oyster crackers were on sale, and have recipe for oyster crackers with Hidden Valley ranch seasoning that is terrific to snack on, or use in soups.................

So that is my big meal tomorrow!!

FINALLY got tax program working some. 5 returns this morning. Tomorrow, see what 2-3 hours do again. Feeling better.
And the scale went down.

I am going to go see how far back I go to get a 181!!!!! Just looked. Looks like last time I saw 181 was in November of 2009......

I am going to stick with CAD eating. That is down 10 lbs since September. And I am happy with my eating. No battles or starving.....

Hey, I think we will get to our goals this year Karen! I always kick myself when I think if all I had done was .25 lbs a week I would have been to goal my now! The quick fix is not the cure! We will get there...one day!

My biggest problem is myself! Queen of excuses here! I need to schedule and stick to it like its a job to get in any sort of movement at all!

Just checking in. I actually drank water tonight instead of something sweet. That was a mental decision, but I didn't cave! Haven't been excercising, but finally getting some tax returns out the door. I feel better now. Gotta balanced my own checkbooks though. No time for my own stuff!

How is it going in your world?
