I am a jeans and comfy shirt girl right now and have been in love with these for the last couple of years.

I see I am the only one still up. . No worries.. I did good today. . shopped my butt off and bought a ton of diet friendly food to get me through this weekend . . :-) It's all in the planning , peeps!

Ready to Rock it!!

CCGirl 12-02-2011 04:11 AM

good morning!

Good plan IM! I hate it when there's nothing ready to eat, it's a bad baad thing.

O no, Bratty, please tell me you're not wearing PJ bottoms with those.........(kidding)

Mim 12-02-2011 05:21 AM

good morning! Ahhh, I have a low key day ahead of me. I'm going to do some sewing and some straightening of the house and then this evening I'm going to a concert to hear Christmas music. It is put on by the local choral society. Yesterday was exhausting, but today will be lovely.

I have a question - what do you keep on hand for snacks. I have been eating two meals a day - breakfast and then around 2. That is when I get hungry. Sometimes I' get hungry in the evening for a bite, but I haven't found the right lite snack. I think what I'm eating is too high fat for evening. I have a big bag of pepperoni that is left over from a dish I made and that is what I've been snacking on.

Ok - I'm off to chill this fine morning!

CCGirl 12-02-2011 05:29 AM

O Mim it sounds like a lovely day for you. Enjoy.

I try to keep turkey burgers cooked on hand. I might try turkey meatballs next round, smaller easy grab and shove in mouth food. Cottage cheese on hand always, and yogurt although I haven't been eating as much lately. It's turned cold lately and the idea of cold food gives me the chills. I do have two quarts of chicken soup on hand for these cold days, just a good strong broth with shredded chicken, nothing elaborate.

Enjoy your day. A slower day is always welcome.
I eat 3 meals. Breakfast (3 eggs) Lunch and Dinner are both a chicken breast. I was snacking on low fat string cheese but I love it too much and would eat more than I should. Pepperoni would be the same story. :D
This week I have just been having a small bowl of SF jello in the evening.

Don't wait until New Years to make resolutions. Why not put some healthy mini-resolutions in place and save yourself some work?
For example:
• If I get seconds, half of my plate has to be vegetables.
• I'll focus on actually tasting the food that took days to prepare.
• If I overeat at a meal, I will let it go, free of any domino effect.
Resist food pushers, even if they're family. Everyone has a doting relative who comes close to literally forcing food into your belly. Let's be blunt: a food coma that requires a change to sweatpants is not attractive. So, keep in mind my favorite "m-word" of the moment: mindfulness.

Enjoy the holidays in a new way.

IM2fat 12-02-2011 06:52 AM

Still planning to plan. . LOL. .

Good idea. Making a plan before you are confronted with food issues is the best thing to do. My mother in law is the food pusher in our family. She loves to buy goodies/pies and give them to me when she visits.

Still on plan, meat meat meat. Starting day 6. I am going to a PartyLite party today. The girl hosting it is doing low carb adkins style, so she said there will b e some low carb snacks. I still plan to eat before I leave so I am not tempted by anything. Low carb is not good enough for me. I want no carb. :D

I hope everyone is doing well. Makeme, if you are reading this. I have been thinking about you. Sending :hugs: your way.

IM2fat 12-03-2011 09:18 PM

:up: Bratty! Day 6 is awesome. . you have to be feeling better! I love when I'm in control. . Strayed on Friday night. . (Mexican resturant. . what on earth can one order there and stay on plan? Very little.. I might add.. !!)

I did what I could. . but got right back on this morning. . Eggs/Turkey sausage for breakfast. ... :jumpjoy:

IM2fat 12-03-2011 09:19 PM

OMG> . where does my weekend go? Dang it all, anyway

Oh man, I do not think they have anything at a Mexican restaurant that is on plan. Good for you getting right back on tho. That is the hardest part for me. I go off and I stay off for days/weeks. I am hoping that changes. :D

BrattyS 12-04-2011 08:52 AM

Yesterday was rough. The Partylite party.... I ate about 2 hours before the party and was hoping we would only be there for about and hour. We were there for 4 hours, plus it is an hour drive back home. It was suppose to be all low carb but the host decided to go off her diet for the day. It was a HUGE party spread of food.
However I was good! I only at a few pieces of cheese and turkey lunch meat to kill the hunger. More sodium than I would have liked but I am too happy for myself to care. This is the first time I have been in a social situation with food and not indulged. I even behaved while my husband and kids had buttery popcorn when we got home for movie night.

I know I may not have the ability to do this every time I am faced with this, but I feel better knowing I have done it and I can do it again. My next hurdle will be Christmas dinner. I should be 4 weeks into Stillman at that point.

:hiya: hey y'all!!!!!!!!! Hugs all around {{{{{}}}}}

Busy weekend gathering for the feast.......we delayed Thanksgiving due to mum unable to come until Thursday........I practically had to bungee the fridge shut.......:laugh:

not hungry today, two cubes of swiss and a half a chicken breast........must look smashing to pick up the folks at the airport.
Have not decided to be wearing the elf cap or pick up a reindeer horn headband.......I always go bearing a gift, a baloon or flowers, this time it shall be hot cocoa......it's lows in the fifties in Miami and it will only be highs in mid thirties when they arrive. Mum doesn't mind cuz she gets to wear her cowboy boots and fur coat.
