Hey peeps, Happy Valentines Day We don't really have any plans today because both kiddos have bball practice. I have hot sausage, onions, and peppers cooking the crock pot for dinner. DH started low-carb on Monday so I'm trying to keep dinners LC for him. I weighed this morning and I'm at 194.2 Hoping to finally reach my 10 lb. first mini-goal, maybe by tomorrow!!! I need to keep track of my water intake. It's so cold here that I have trouble getting it all in. I have been drinking herbal tea to at least keep warm.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Weight STS this morning 194.2 - can't seem to make my 10 lb. goal no matter what I do!!! Yesterday's menu was weird - for lunch I made an orange julius drink - 2 oranges, little bit of milk, water, ice, and sweetener in the blender. Then dinner was hot sausage w/peppers and onions. Dessert was 3 little valentines sugar-free peeps Today I'm trying to keep it clean and hopefully see a new low tomorrow!!!!

Happy Friday everyone

These weekends are gonna kill me DD had a sleepover on Friday night, basketball on Saturday, and DS had a sleepover last night. I'm exhausted!!! I need a weekend to relax from my weekend. I told my kids there will be no sleepovers next weekend, I need some rest.

My eating was good all weekend. I saw 192.2 yesterday afternoon but back up to 193.2 this morning I think my lowest weights are in the afternoon and not in the morning. Anyhoo, I met my first goal of 10 lbs So, 33.2 lbs to go to get to goal

Today I'm keeping it clean - fruit for breakfast and then veggies and meat the rest of the day. Seems to work good for me. I also bought that 25 calorie diet hot chocolate that I may have for a bedtime snack I hope it tastes good and not all watery. Off to work

Awww thanks for the support!!! Honestly, most days I don't even think about smoking but every once in a while I want one so bad I could cry! I also haven't drank alcohol in a long time - the smokes go hand in hand with that. We have a night out planned on March 9th - it's a Fundraiser for our high school and the one DS will be going to in September. We go every year and it's always a blast. My judgment seems to go to heck after a couple beers

Good morning The scale was very wonky this morning I got 3 different readings, 192.4 - 191.0 - 191.4 If I average the 3 I get 191.6, so I'll go with that!!! Yesterday I had a big red grapefruit for lunch with splenda and for dinner a nice big ribeye and sliced tomatoes/onions. I guess it was a sort of modififed steak day. My jeans are starting to fall of me so I suppose it's working!!!

I have to drive 90 miles to a lunch today I'm praying the weather holds out. They were calling for ice at one point

Everyone have a wonderful day!!!

I like the idea of your average weight, grab hold of that number. You can also try weighing like the gal in my Avi. for the most accurate result. Do be careful on your trip but enjoy your visit.

I made it back in one piece. We went to Applebees and I had the jalapeno lime shrimp - it was awesome! I think the whole thing was only like 300 calories and I didn't eat it all. I left a lot of the rice. I'm going to try and drink extra water today though because of the sodium. Dinner will probably be tilapia - I'm hooked on it for some reason.

No weighing this morning as I ended up eating a little too much last night. I have this stupid kink in my neck, I think from lifting Erin. I was grouchy and wanted comfort food. I had Dreamfields pasta w/meatballs, 3 pcs. of sugar-free Dove dark chocolate which wasn't too bad. But then I had a bowl of frosted mini wheats and 4 spring colored Oreos Yikes!!! Oh well, what's done is done. Today I'm focusing on water, water, and more water. I'll probably have some grapefruit for lunch and then protein for dinner. That usually corrects my indiscretions from the day prior. I would LOVE to see the 180's in the next week or so

I have to write up a quote... I will BB in a bit!

Hahahahahaha! I know - I'm surprised I didn't eat the whole package. They were so good. I ate those while I was getting my cereal poured I'm actually proud that I stopped there - it could've turned into an all out - all night binge. Boy, does it suck the power food has over me sometimes

I feel ya on the power of food. I should own stock in Rice Krispy treats and Krispy Kreme as much as I eat them. They are my vices. But that is great ar stopping at just 4. Could have been a lot worse.

Congrats on 50+ days of staying smoke-free!! I agree, no way could I have stopped at only 4 oreos LOL. You're sooo close to the 180's, I hope you make there soon.

Hey peeps I faced the scale this morning and it's at 192.8 - not too bad considering my Oreo and cereal escapade Will I ever see the 180's??? I'm having trouble getting all of my water in because I'm so freakin' cold. It's like 19 degrees here and snowing and the last thing I want is cold water. I guess I'll just have to force it down. Not sure about the menu today but I do have a roast in the crock pot for dinner I have a huge bag of oranges that need to be eaten but again they don't sound good when I'm cold At least it's Friday eve and almost the weekend, right? DS has bball game tomorrow night, DD has one on Saturday @ noon. Then Saturday night is DS's 8th Grade Recognition for sports. I will probaby be a bumbling mess because it's his last year and he's been going to this school since he was 4 years old. There are 3 kids going to his high school and all of the rest are going separate ways. Some are going to different catholic high schools while others are going to different public schools. It's going to be a very emotional night! We start at 4:00 mass, then get a catered dinner, and then go to the gym for the recognition. After that, they pick teams (both boys and girls) and play a bball game. I'll take some pics and post on Monday

Oh you're still close!! I feel the same about getting into the 150's..it seems it's always a tease and when I'm so close, something happens and I'm far away again. Your menu looks good, so you can do it!

My sons have been going to their school too since 4yrs old so we will have to go through the same thing when he's in 8th grade. I feel for you...it will be a bittersweet day. Good luck with their games!
