I am so hungry! Must stay strong til Dinner, I foget how hungry I always used to be when eating Junk, remind me again why I ate this way for so long? haha

Beth Sch 01-03-2012 02:00 PM

Mar, I'm right there with you. OMGoodness, I'm so stupid, I can't seem to stop the nibbling here and there. It's like some sick pattern, my body is on "mindless nibble mode" I have to remove all chocolate, alcohol and corn chips, pie and ice cr. from my home. Otherwise, I'll be here a yr. from now.

Y do we do this to ourselves. I would think after a lifetime of dieting that I wouldn't even have a drop of these evil foods. Y is garbage so equated with fun and holiday festivities. Makes me crazy that I fall for it every yr.

HELP!:stars::lol::doh:

recap-Dukan pancake---just mix a tablespoon of oatbran, tablespoon of Quark/lf greek yoghurt or even cottage cheese and either an egg or eggwhite together and put on a pan.
Oatbran has a lot of good qualities according to Dukan.


sounds almost like an oopsie roll from Atkins.........


Beth you can get skinny again but don't leave us, stop by with your skinny self from time to time.........

CC: Thanks for starting us off! Woooo--Hooooo!!! 2012 here we come! Watch out!:lol:

I've got my tilapia in the microwave. Nice afternoon snack to ward off the hungies.:yummy: Go protein!

Yam-Yam 01-03-2012 03:14 PM

When I'm doing the Dukan pancakes, sometimes I make 4 at a time and just put them in the fridge. They are good cold or warm (you can warm them up in the microwave).

This is my recipe for 4 servings:

Heat grill to 375. Put 4 egg whites in a mixing bowl and whip a bit with a fork 'til frothy (this makes them rise, nice and fat and light). Add half cup FF plain Greek yogurt and half cup oat bran. I usually add a couple of packets of Splenda, but you don't have to. Mix w/ fork. Use quarter cup measuring cup to make nice round servings that you pour onto the grill. Hint: these cakes take longer to cook than regular white flour pancakes. When they are brown on one side, flip 'em and cook til brown on other side. Enjoy!!!

Thanks, CC!

Mar - 4 years younger is about the right age difference!

It sure is good to welcome 2012 with all of you!

Mim 01-03-2012 03:29 PM

I had the neatest thing happen yesterday. It was a granddaughter's 3rd birthday - she was a preemie but she is all caught up now. My 4 yo granddaughter and I made the cake - Tinkerbell. It was lovely! Anyway, as I was getting in the car to run a few errands yesterday morning, my dd called and said a friend had a total gym for sale for 50 bucks! The friend is a personal trainer and has outgrown this machine. Anyway, I got the total gym, they delivered it and set it up and I've ordered some workout dvd's. I know how to use it for my physical therapy, but it is going to be used to lose weight.

I start on Thursday. I have a long stretch of no holidays, no over a meal meeting, no special church gathering. It is important to me to start when I know I will have success, hence the waiting until Thursday. Actually, as I type this I realize I can start with my last bite of lunch tomorrow (lunch meeting - we are served so no choice). Over the past few weeks I've been buying lots of groceries that will see me through the first month. I'm very prepared and very excited to be on plan again!

Getting there!!! 01-03-2012 03:39 PM

Hi peeps!!! Here's to a great happy skinny new year!!!

CCGirl 01-03-2012 03:48 PM

Awesome well laid plans Mim! it must be tough with all of your engagements involving food.

Happy new year all!!!!!!!!!!

Do you all eat the pancakes to ward off cravings? Was never a bug pancake fan, I make enormous diner style ones for DH every weekend.

USDA Recommendations Followed
Florida man consumes 120 apples, 300 slices of bread per month
TALLAHASSEE, FL--Robert Steinholz is a stickler for details, and he's making sure to follow the USDA's dietary guidelines to a "T".

Steinholz, an accountant and Florida native, consumes the recommended 6-11 servings of bread and pasta every single day, as well as 2-4 servings of fruits and 3-5 servings of vegetables. He also has a glass of milk and a piece of meat with every meal, including breakfast.


USDA Food Pyramid
In total, this amounts to approximately 120 apples a month, plus upwards of 300 slices of bread. "With some 20-25 slices of bread per loaf, that's, like, 14 or 15 loaves of bread a month," he explains.

"Yeah, it's hard to keep up sometimes," admits the 5'7", 280 pound Florida native. "But I figure, hey, if the USDA doesn't know what's good for me, who does?"

Steinholz, who began the USDA diet eight months ago, says that regular injections of insulin help his body process the enormous carbohydrate load that the "food pyramid" subjects him to.

:rofl:

Our Father and Mother in heaven,
hallowed be your names.
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily meat,
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into carb temptation,
but deliver us from carb evil."

Yam-Yam 01-03-2012 04:31 PM

Mim: That's awesome about getting the Total Gym for $50! :workout:Cool. Sounds like you are planning and planning. Good deal. :up:

CC::aprayer:

If you do have cravings the Dukan pancakes are great. There's not enough carbs in 'em to do any damage to LC WOE. :yummy:

CCGirl 01-03-2012 04:43 PM

:(:mad::eek::cry:I don't know what happened to me yesterday...my appetite was crazy and I completely gave in! I won't even say what I ate...but it wasn't "purty!"

I ordered some of the Quest Bars which are delicious...but I think they encourage my appetite too much...I will put them away for awhile. I'm going to do meat only for a few days and see if I can get things back under control.

My weight is creeping back up...and I'm not very happy with myself!!

I think you are right about the Bars triggering your appetite. I haven't eaten that kind of "food" in quite some time, but when I did, I noticed that my cravings would appear. Ug. Be gentle with yourself and eat lots of meat!

Mim 01-04-2012 05:30 AM

Yippeee! Today is the day! With the last bite of lunch I will officially start back on plan! I'll weigh tomorrow and try to take some measurements. I've never been overly successful taking measurements - but I'll give it a go. I am looking forward to feeling good again.

It's a balmy 6F here at the cottage this morning. Our first real taste of winter, save for the grass still visible outside. Usually the snow is up to the windowsills this time of year. No complaints, bring on the global warming! :D

IM2fat 01-04-2012 05:39 AM

:hiya: Huggs!

makemeslim 01-04-2012 07:54 AM

Oh great, thanks for starting the thread CC. I have failed to start back on Stills but there is no way I am going to let all the good work I have done go to waste so I am making a solid promise to return tomorrow and to log in here daily. It's been nice having loose jeans and a flat tum...I felt great xmas day. However, if I am not careful I might soon end up where I started and we can not be having that. So tomorrow will be eggs for breakfast, tuna melt for lunch and then maybe some sort of chicken dish for lunch...remembering nothing changes until I change!
Hugs to all. x
