Hey Cheryl !!
I'm doing good. I guess I've been in somewhat of a lurking mode...
I got "no idea" why...

I just finished making a big netrition order. I love that place. Getting some new things to mess around in the kitchen with. If they turn out....I'll post about them.


I'm pretty close to goal. 161 this morning. Not to far away. I'm "dosing" right now....and have about 10 days left until "day # 21". So....I will probly up my calories a bit the last few days of this round.

One thing I learned....DO NOT do INCOMPLETE ROUNDS. I think that's why I kinda "derailed" there. I will finish this out "BY THE BOOK" this time.



how are you doing ?????

Well...I've been hovering at 161 for most of the week. Sure hope this stall breaks soon. I will not do an apple day. I think the stall will break on its own....so, why not eat what you can while you can?

I just put a 24 pound turkey in the oven. I HAVE NEVER COOKED A TURKEY THAT SIZE BEFOR IN MY LIFE !!!!!

I bought it at Thanksgiving time....intending to use it for some football feeds...

I think I have enough at the bar for tomorrow's game anyway. On the menu is
Pulled Pork
Hot Dogs
Boneless Hot Wings
Chili
Baked Beans
Augratin Taters
Coleslaw
Nacho Cheese (in a pump) W/tortilla chips
Chocolate chip cookies (I baked over 200 the other day)
Seasoned oyster crackers

Pre-game.....I have some appetizers in the freezer that I need to use up. They are shaped like a mozzarella stick....but some are a spinach kind, some are a bean, and some are a queso kind. All very yummy.

I personnally call Super Bowl...."refrigerator/freezer clean out day"



Now, for me, I will be eating turkey. And probably for days...and days...and days...LOL

Hey Jan, sorry about your stress.....

Yes I am still doing hcg however, I have gone to gluten free and low carb way of eating. I tend to lose about 5 pounds a month which is fine for me as I am content and I can still have a glass of wine at dinner. I use the ketostix everyday to see if I am in ketosis and I am and I am content to know that I will just lose slowly.

My main hobby now is cooking....trying all sorts of gluten free and sugar free sweets which I bring in to work for the "tastetesters" (the girls at work). Three are diabetic and I am sure a couple are on the verge of it so they love my treats.

Hope your stress levels get better

Me and stress are one. We live together....

So....I just want to dump I guess.

My Haileys feels like it's exploding.

And it seems to happen every year at this time. I'm ahead of the game as far as hiring new staff is concerned. NOW....it's just about keeping the OLD staff happy. They get all pi$$y when hours get cut....but when is the NEW staff going to get any time in???? They just don't get it. I can't go to the poor house and have everyone standing around doing nothing.
In the old days....when I first started tending bar....the one who "BROUGHT IN" the customers was the one who got the most hours. WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT CONCEPT?????


sorry....needed to vent....


I am still playing around with this 10 pounds. It seems to want to stay more than it wants to go.


LOLOL.....JAN

Well....got some computer issues fixed today...let the games begin...LOLOL

Got pork chops in the micro defrosting for dh....chicken for me.

2 days back on Haileys Meds....feeling better already.

So.....the stress of the week was....the city water main broke across the hwy from us. Of course, I was the only "bar" it affected. The other 2 closest to us were fine. At 1:30 in the afternoon...on st.pat's day....WE LOST WATER. We were closed by 6:30 that night. No Bathrooms....I WAS SO PI$$ED!!!!

But....it could have been worse. If it was the next day....friday...I had 360 pounds of fish floured for the fish fry. Now that would have been BAD !!!

Hey Jan, hope you are doing well and your Hailey's is going away. I am losing so slow but that is okay as I figure I am not gaining. You have had some fun time this month that's for sure! Hopefully things will get better.

Hey Cheryl!! Losing is always GOOD.....no matter how slow it comes off!!

I can't believe the issues I have to address at work....It's a wonder I have any hair left!!!

I had a girl call and leave me a message that she was having her WEDDING RECEPTION at the bar next FRIDAY NIGHT!!! NOW.....somebody dropped the ball BIG TIME. 50 - 100 people. 8:00 at night. not going to happen.

It is LENT. By 5:20 last night I had a waiting list going for tables. We do not do reservations on friday nights. 1st come....1st serve. The list lasted untill almost 8:30.

AND....she has already told people about it. DID'NT EVEN CLEAR IT WITH ME FIRST!!!! She has NO MONEY....so she can't rent a hall...and "just figured" a bar would be ok. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND PEOPLE

just a quick stop....hoping that this is still my 75% off day..LOL

probly going to grill steaks today...but can't decide between flat irons or rib eyes.

It's supposed to be a nice day today, in the 80's, but with scattered rain.

I want to get on the bike SO BAD!!! But my waist is broken out with the dam Haileys again. STRESS....does it to me every time.

Well...dh has been wanting something sweet lately, so if I get back home today, I think I'll haunt the recipee room for awhile.

Picking it up and dusting it off....

my willpower that is.....

one thing I am ....and that's true to my nature. I have gained back "some" weight. And now it's time to DO SOMETHING ABOUT It.

When will I ever be able to break this cycle????

So....I am back on the "juice" and this is vlcd 3.

why do I/WE do this??? LOL I say it that way because I know that I am not the only person to go thru this. So....
do I not like feeling great?
do I not like wearing cute clothes?
do I not like having tons of energy?
do I not like that feeling of accomploshment that "maintaining" can give me?

now....there is a "dam" that was self created in the bathtub, every time I sit in it. You know the one I'm talking about.
now....I have so much pressure on my bladder that I have some "technical difficulties" at times.
now....my back aches every day because of this added weight

So....
I hope to write at least once a week and to report my progress. The one good thing is that when I finally do make up my mind....it tends to come right off...the weight that is.

crap....I was a bad girl last night....I just cannot seem to get through 3 days. That seems to be the magic number.
Today has been good so far, so I guess, if I can get RIGHT BACK on track....I will have accomplished something.

The food at work does not seem to bother me.....on wednessdays we have spaghetti with fresh breadsticks. That is a big thing for me....the bread. Today, we had hot beef sandwiches. The potatoes are NO BIG THING, but the bread and gravy part.....But yesterday and today I could "absolutely deal" with it.
My problem comes at NIGHT.
I guess everyone has a "time of day" that they are the weakest when it comes to food and/or the temptations of it all.
What to do about it......that is the question....
