I have a couple errands to take care of and its supposed to rain most of the day. I am heading out now hopefully I can make it back before the rain!

Oh my hubby is taking me to Vegas for Valentine's Day so excited. We've been there before but we stayed with his relatives out there. This time we booked a room. Can't wait to go!!
BBL...Have a beautiful day loves!!
Cool! Where are you guys planning to stay? I'm looking at the Golden Nugget for March on my west coast trip!

Good Morning All!!

Today is DD for me. I had a wonderful UD yesterday. Here's what I ate:

B: Oatmeal slice turkey bacon 1/3 beef hot link sausage
L: Subway turkey loaded on WW/pepper jack cheese/jalapenos/ banana peppers/cukes/spinach/pickles/green peppers/avocado/oregano with sun chips YUM!!!
D: 4.5 ribeye/ baked sweet potato (tsp butter, tsp brown sugar)/sauteed spicy green bean
S: a few blueberries and a few totilla chips

I ended up with 1722 net cals with 155 leftover. I am really happy with the plan I chose. Sure the plan is not offering quick and extreme losses that I am used to seeing with LC. I am happy with not having to put myself in a box and restrict certain foods and I haven't gained weight. The more I work this plan I am certain the more the losses will come. Especially since I am working my way back into my exercise regimen.

DD menu for today:

B: 2 cups coffee with cream
L: Nutri grain waffles whip cream strawberries
D: Chix & shrimp with cabbage

Enjoy all!!

wonderful Valentines plan..good luck on the cute, red dress made just for you (and hubby ). I love everyone sharing their menus..gives us great ideas. Better yet, I like we're all on the same schedule..don't know how long it will stay with adding MDs here and there...

Guess what I got from the store...a couple of sweet potatoes..LOL. I'm having it tomorrow of Saturday for UD..you know how long I've been craving it.

Thanks Shari!! I am looking forward to getting away to relax!! Def need it! I like sharing menus also! It really helps. Yeah we are all on the same schedule...girl it def helps on DDs. If I feel like I need encouragement, I just checkout how good we all are hanging in there and it helps me hang in there also!

I hope I can find the right dress. I don't look good in every red unfortunately, so that poses a little challenge for me! Enjoy those sweet potatoes. I have one just about every UD!! I just love them...so if you find you don't want yours, or you're tired of eating them you know where you can send them.

Hey Marl,

Sound like everything is falling into place for you. I too am going to vegas in the late part of May. My son is turning 21 so we are taking him and my daughter to vegas with us. This should be fun!

Hey Karen!! I don't know what I am going to do when my daughter turns 21 next year! Time surely flies and I was never ready for my kids to grow up! I am settling in the JUDDD WOE and loving it. So happy I stumbled upon it! I think its changing my life. Enjoy Vegas girlie. I would have been cool if we were there the same time. We could have hooked up for dinner or something.

Cle you know me and shopping! I spent waaaayyyy too much! I figured I needed at least 6 outfits. Three for brunch (because I am banking on the fact that we will probably miss breakfast every morning) and 3 for dinner. I didn't find a red dress that suits my skin so I ended up with a hot pink dress...I will take pics. I have my eye on some leopard shoes that I want to pick up today then I guess I will be done!

UD is what's up!!

I love UDs. I struggled yesterday on DD. TOM is lurking and I was starving for most of the day. I ended up being a little over 600 cals. Not fretting sometimes its like that. Here is what I had...

B: 2 cups coffee with cream
L: 2 Nutri grain waffles strawberries whip cream
D: 6 inch turkey subway sandwich w/ pepper jack and veggies/avocado
S: strawberries/almonds

I was going to make the chicken cabbage skillet and save my sandwich for today, but I was too hungry too cook. The shakes started to set in so I figured I better eat something. Here is my menu for today:

B: oatmeal cup coffee/cream
L: ??
D: foil baked fish w/black beans and corn

I just noticed I'm not having a sweet potato for dinner. May just have to have one for lunch!

Make it a good one peeps!!

Tonight's Dinner

I found a recipe on Pinterest...its foiled-baked fish with black beans and corn... I had a tossed salad also. BBL to post the rest of my menu.



The salad turned out kind of light...there is sweet red peppers, cukes, feta, and red onion.

Hey All!!

I have had a busy day today. Picking up clothes, accessories, toiletries, etc...I pooped! I am def going to enjoy the Quay Spa when I get there!! Oh here are my shoes...i love them. My dress is hot pink!


I had my dress saved on my phone also but I deleted it by accident..."house keeping" We will def take pics though. I hope the colors mesh will.

My eating was on point today. Staying on point was easy breezy!! I'm good!! I will probably not post again until next week. I have a busy weekend ahead of me. Best wishes to all!! Enjoy your weekends friends
