Cheryl wtg on 1 lb. Do you have the book or are you following it on the thread. Sounds like a good plan with a variety of food. No no site seeing, it takes all day for all the test. Then the long ride home.

He was a winner on American Idol. His nickname was the Velvet Teddy Bear. He has been in the news a lot with his weight struggles.

Cheryl~ Congrats on the loss Heading in the right direction is ALL I'm looking for at this point LOL

Deb~ Glad you both enjoyed the chili! Not been following BL this season, but I know who Ruben is from American Idol. He def needed some help with WL. Hope Jill doesnt get canned

Misty~ I am lazy and usually just drink Atkins shake or use it as a base and dress it up with other ingredients. There is a thread on here somewhere with a bunch of great recipes though. I shall find the link and post for ya Hope you have a safe trip!

I have doc appointment in the morning. UGH I absolutely dread gettin on that scale. He instructed me to lose of course and I've gained...YIKES!

Goodmorning, off to Boston and packed plenty of LC eats so I don't mess up. They have so many tempting places to eat in this hospital.

Oh my it was an EARLY rise for you Misty! Safe travels and great job planning ahead. I've spent some time in hospital with DH this past year as well and know all the carby pitfalls that await

I'm up earlier than usual too. Headed to that doc appointment. Wish me luck! I'm gonna show a gain on the scale, but hey maybe he'll give me some extra points for cuteness heehee

Laters, lcpeeps

Must be in the air......I was awake at 4 this morning also. Tried to sleep, and ended up with nightmares. Might as well have gotten up.

I sympathize with the hospital eating. I put on 4 lbs with Mom in the hospital. Restaurants are just hard for me.

Blood pressure was high so doc has ordered me to come back in 2 weeks for another reading. Hopefully I will have better numbers after some time on plan.

Also gotta get iron levels checked and thyroid. Iron has to do with my restless legs somehow Decided to increase my Cymbalta.

He is happy with my plan for eating and exercise. Now I just have to stick with it!

I'm off to do some chores and WO. Emmalee and I are meeting my SIL for supper while she is in town from NY. Prolly go to a steakhouse

GREAT JOB ON LOSING, LADIES! Hope I lose too fingersxx

Google magnesium and RLS. Mag and Fibro. Mag and bp. Then read a little on the thread for mag on what kind to take. It's worth a try.

It's not cure all but every inch counts. I've been on it a week and my energy level is up some and my sleep is better. I started at once a day at bedtime. Took a dose this morning. It is kinda nasty. I have taken mag before with no results. But it wasn't the right kind. I hope it helps you.

Deb- I think he will love the gift!! I don't know anything about guitars, but that looks mighty sharp!

Cheryl- congrats on the pound! I am reading the mag thread in a few minutes.


I am down a pound today as well.. feeling very good and the keto sticks show I am in ketosis so that is good. My appetite has dropped and my water intake is way up. Today is my run around day and coffee with my Dad at the local greasy spoon. Instead of the french toast I have been feasting on the past few months I just had an order of bacon. I brought my own heavy cream for the coffee. Now to put all the groceries up I just bought and get the house straightened out. Whew.

Menu Today
B: Bacon w/coffee & cream
L: Steak Tips and mushrooms
D: Grilled chicken and spinach

For snacks I have some smoked sausage, cheese cubes, sf jello, pickles. So that should be good to get me through snacks this week. I am drinking crystal lite cranberry grape at night instead of wine. So far it is working like a charm.

About the Jillian drama- sounds like more of a producers manipulation to bring back a popular contestant. But, they won't get rid of Jillian she brings in a large audience. I guess they might tick her off though and then she might not want to come back next season.
