I am up a little less than a pound today. Don't know why, don't really care. I did nothing to cause it. I feel great and it will go away again.

I was teasing my husband because he lost the same amount that I gained. I told him to quit sending his fat to me at night while we sleep!

We took the kids to the local high school last night to trick or treat. I have a 2 gallon storage bowl full of candy on the table and I am shocked that I do not really care. Would I like to have some? Sure I would, and I know it would taste fabulous. BUT I like the way I am feeling more so I have not touched it. This is such a fast improvement for me. Last year I would have ate quite a bit of it.

Use the bowl full of candy to give to trick or treaters on Halloween! It isn't good for any of your family! Which is not to say that the kids shouldn't get treats, but developing a taste for non sugar treats is a gift you can give.

Good morning! Speaking of coffee, I had a bit of a panic this morning. I have two travel cups - one is clean one in use. I fill one before I leave for the office, but this morning I had put both in the dishwasher and the dry cycle had just started when I needed to leave! I will pull things out during other cycles, but opening it during dry lets too much hot air out. Anyway, I found an extra that was back in a corner of the cupboard. Ahhhhhh, coffee!

Well, I had a bit of a stumble. I am fine - on plan and moving forward. I think I am going to send the scale home with my dd today. Right now I need to concentrate on getting my body healthy by low carbing and exercising. The weight will come off without me letting the scale dictate how I feel. Take that, scale!

My kids rarely get candy. Halloween and Christmas is about it. They get cake and ice cream type treats on special occasions like birthdays. Once in a while (once a month) they get pudding as a special treat. They love fruits and veggies. My daughters favorite food is steamed broccoli.

I would freak out without my scale. I am too much of a control freak to not know what is going on.

okay,this batch is pretty close, it smells like a Shrewish deli in here.........


5 chick thighs
1/2 sweet onion large dice, this happens to be a vidalia
4 stalk celery large dice
4 enormous carrots, 1/2" thick slices
4 heaping tbsp. dried dill weed
3 tsp. ground marjoram
3 tsp. Mrs. Dash sodium free Lemon Pepper

crock on high for four hours stirring once so flavors are evenly distributed

after all the years of exotic trials this is really the closest. I think the real secret here is NO garlic, which I tend to put in damned near everything savory, and copious amounts of dill.

Low Sugar (or sugar-free) Teriyaki Chicken

Ingredients:
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (or 8 skinless, bone in chicken thighs, well trimmed)
1/2 cup soy sauce (I used Kikkoman)
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup Splenda or sugar (or less, depending on how sweet you like it, use Splenda for the South Beach Diet)
1 T brown sugar (optional)
1 T ginger puree or fresh grated ginger root
1 T garlic puree or fresh garlic, finely diced

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 375F/190C.


Put soy sauce, water, Splenda, brown sugar (if using), ginger puree, and garlic puree in small saucepan and simmer about 15 minutes, until reduced by about 1/3 to 1/2.


Trim all visible fat and tendons from chicken pieces, then make a row of shallow cuts in the top side of each piece. (This is to let the sauce penetrate the meat more.)


Choose the smallest size casserole dish that will fit all chicken in a single layer, then put chicken in dish, top side down. Pour about 1/3 of the sauce over the chicken, cover with foil, and bake 25 minutes, or until chicken is starting to feel firm to the touch.


After 25 minutes, remove foil and turn chicken pieces over. (Don't worry if the top side looks flat from being pressed in the pan; it will plump up when it cooks more.) Use a pastry brush to brush sauce all over the top side of the chicken. Continue to cook about 20-25 minutes more, basting with sauce every 5 minutes. Serve hot.

It is so cold, rainy, and miserable here. The kids are whiny because the neighborhood Halloween party is probably cancelled. Perfect day to sit around in my sweat pants, over sized sweatshirt, and fuzzy socks all day.

I had an accidental slip... My daughter handed me a fun sized candy bar last night and I ate it. It did not even occur to me not to. About 10 minutes later it hit me... OH CRAP I ATE IT! Not detrimental to my weight loss but definitely enough to get me out of ketosis. I will not sweat it tho. I am still on plan. I did not let it turn into a fall like I would have in the past. Before I would have said "oh well, my diet is ruined" and ate 10 more. That would have turned into days off diet, possibly weeks or months.

OMG I am sooo craving turkey lately, can't wait until it goes on sale for the holidays!

IF you search for a good Jewish chicken soup recipe you will see about the dill. And the other secret ingredient, which I didn't have so I doubled up on the carrots, is parsnips. Apparently the sweetness of them and the carrots is the kicker paired with the dill.

some things I can't bear without it. So my aunt gave me some season salt and I cut it by half with garlic and onion powder, not sodium free but flavor with less.

Bratty I think you will pleasantly surprised that that small smidge of suger will not kick you out........I'll betcha, I will.

Nice going not falling for the 'oh well, I'm screwed so I might as well eat the whole bag!

I'm glad it's only rain for you, Al is going to get hammered with snow, while we sit back and take our two to four inches........yep, that's me, up here in the North, cackling...............poor Al

Nerm, baby steps. One day at a time. If flavor keeps you on track then have at it! If hardcore makes you feel like a champion then go for it!

well, my losers, tonight's feature is The Little Vampire. It is a very dear film. Make no mistake, not just for kiddies.

If you ever saw Nanny McPhee and had a big lump in your throat at the end then you will love this film.

Happy Haunting!

Trivia
The family name "Sackville-Bagg" in this film is a reference to J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit", as Bilbo and Frodo Baggins are related to the "Sackville Bagginses".

quotes:
Tony Thompson (mortal child): I'm Rudolph's (young vampire) friend, and he gave me a bite proof guarantee.
