Now spend too much time at a desk. Don't dare eat 6 times per day!! I do need to add more fiber, so right now I am going to hang with this week's goals, and then think over next week's goals.

I think I like this "Weekly" idea. I can make variations and monitor those, but only have to keep by the week.

I even did my jogging yesterday.......and scale went up .5# But not giving up.

I am going to hang in there, because I am going to make the weekly goals

But next week I am going to lighten up on the SF drinks and see if any difference.

I think it was the dry rub on the ribs. Maybe lots of sodium or MSG. I'm sticking with it too. Maybe it's the day of the week since we can't blame time of the month.

Hiya everyone- I am trying to hit both threads today.

We have sleet/freezing drizzle right now. I am hoping we don't get too much ice. I just refuse to drive on the stuff. I will just stay by the fireplace and keep warm for the rest of the day.

Cheryl- Sodium has a big effect on my weight loss so I have to watch it too. That's another reason I need to drink my water.. so I can flush it out.

Deb- Making wine & chili... yum. (I know from the other thread, but I am still thinking about it.)

I am still on plan, and the scale has not budged since I dropped 10 the first week. But, it will get moving again soon.

Today's Food:
B: Bacon & Coffee
L: Minute Steak topped with fresh spinach, mushrooms, prov cheese
D: Taco Salad (ground beef, homemade salsa, cheese on bed of lettuce)

I haven't been snacking much at night, but I have some sf jello just in case.

Deb keep both. They are different. I didn't post yesterday cuz I was in a mood.

Paid for it too. Ate hamburger(no bun tho) and fries today. Chinese for dinner. Nuff said. Back on track tomorrow. Only myself to blame. I made the decision.

I am going to summarize at the end of the week how I did on my goals, my weight and then set my next week's goal.

Confused today....I did Big Mac and Diet Pop for lunch, and then ate chili (1 small bowl with no crackers) for supper. Salt and SF, and the scale went down today..

So I am going to stick with this week's goals, and look it over on the weekend....

But I can tell a shift in body composition, just by sticking to SOMETHING this week

Friday started off good for me since the scale finally moved again.. down 2 more pounds!

So that makes a total of 12 lost since my good friend Deb got me back on track again 11 days ago. Thanks my friend, I am feeling much better.

But, this week I dropped the ball on exercise. I skipped it completely so now I know what to put on my goals for next week.

I think I am going to celebrate with a glass of wine.. or two. But that will be my limit. (especially since it is all I have in the house)

Congrats!!!! Hope you have continued success.

I slipped off my goals last night. Went with DH on a stolen property tow. 3 hrs, cold, and so midnight, I fixed hot chocolate for both. It tasted really good, and I knew it wouldn't set well with the scale, but seemed like the thing to do. We were sleeping well, until 2 am, he got called out again. (I stayed in bed that time)

So today, got to figure out today early to stay on plan today.

Back was hurting this morning, so 15 minutes at gym on weight machines.
BF was on plan, and lunch was Healthy Choice soup at office with DD and DH.
But I am HUNGRY now......supper is long time away.

Going to go find a cheese stick.....
Just put GS down for a nap. Wish I could take one!

The old commercial. I've fallen and I can't get up? That's how I am.

Thinking about the week to come- a company TG dinner, Family TG. Travel and people cooking up food for us at gatherings over the weekend. What to do???

Karen did the cheese stick help?

I need to just suck it up. . do what I can and not pig out. Maybe I will go back to my carb cycling. I had forgotten about it until Karen mentioned it. That's what I was doing before I got sick.

I actually passed on the cheese stick, but set up family to eat BEFORE the horse sale. So we went to Burger King at 5:30, and I passed on any snack.........

I actually went to the kitchen to find food, and shut the cupboard and left

I doubt scale goes down tomorrow, but it was a small victory to get thru the day, pretty well on plan.

Mon and Tues are going to be lousy. Tax school, with breakfast, lunch and snack provided.....and BORING sometimes. I eat when bored......
Then Thanksgiving and the office retreat.......

Going to put that into my thoughts tomorrow as I summarize how I did on this week's goals and set next week's goals.

That is kind of how I have felt all summer
Good luck on whatever you try.

I am liking this weekly goal idea. It is not so overwhelming, and I feel like I can tweak it without blowing an entire month....

These are my goals for this week. Weighed in 193 this morning. See what the week does.

Anyone else want to post weekly goals and how we do on them?
Summary of last weeks goals

BF was LC every day....Bacon or Eggs, so calling that good for week.
Coffee with Coconut oil....did 4 mornings, but did water other days, so call 6.
Nothing but water--Did diet pop twice this week. So need to improve (but pop is on sale this week!!!!)
Only snack Almonds--stuck to this all week. Proud of myself on this one.
Jog 10 minutes each day--missed 2 days, but averaged 10 minutes...so good on that one!!

I actually feel pretty good after this week, and have NOT forced myself to count carbs, etc. Easing into some habit-changes and see how it goes. But scale stayed the same, with some body-shape changes noticeable. The tummy isn't as prominent.

I am going to post this summary, and then list a new list of goals for this week. For me, the weekly goals seem to be step in right direction.
