Post Monday and Tuesday

Checking in! Welcome to our newest member!!

I was looking at the past posts and I don't think I made a goal for this mini challenge. So.. I'm making it my goal to lose no less than 2 lbs. before Sunday. That would make it 187 for me on my stats.

Monday Meals:

B: Scrambled Eggs (2), 1 piece sausage

L: Ham and cheese roll ups

D: Rib Eye Steak, 3 red new baby potatoes, broccoli, 2 choc. chip
cookies, 4 oz. milk

Some water.. not enough. Who ever suggested drinking it at room temperature, I'd like to hug them!! I can get much more in that way.

Hope everyone had a good day!! I'll report on today's meals later.

Lisa

HI. HERE I AM FEELING GUILTY FOR NO REASON I THINK. HERE'S ME DAY.

B-COFFEEW/CREAM
L-NONE
SNACK-2 SLICES TURKEY.

OK, NOW HERE'S THE GUILT. WENT OUT TO DINNER. STARTED WITH A CAESER SALAD. HAD SOME CROUTONS IN IT.
MAIN MEAL WAS STEAK WITH POTATOES(I ONLY HAD 3 SMALL ONES) AND SLICE OF GARLIC BREAD WHICH I DIDN'T FINISH.

I HAD SOME OF MY SON'S SALAD WITH CHICKEN PIECES. AND MAYBE 3-5 FRIES. NOW WHEN I WRITE IT DOWN IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE MUCH, BUT I STILL FEEL LIKE I CHEATED FOR SOME REASON. MAYBE MY PROPORTIONS WEREN'T EXACT.
DIDN'T DRINK ALL THE WATER EITHER.

WORKED OUT FOR ABOUT 40 MINUTES THIS MORNING.
I DON'T THINK I'LL GET ON THAT SCALE TOMORROW. I HAVE A FEELING IT WON'T BE GOOD. TODAY I STAYED THE SAME. THAT'S 3 DAYS NOW. I FEEL LIKE THIS IS TAKING SO DAMN LONG.

HOPE YOU GUYS ARE OK! GOOD LUCK.

Talking Welcome Amyjean

Welcome to our little group!

Post often and let us know what your eating for your meals. It's a great way to get ideas and if we see something that we think you might benefit from changing, we can let you know.


CHRIS,

I think I'm going to start a new challenge. "The Weigh Once A Week Challenge"!

It appears that the only thing you didn't have was the other veggie besides the 2 cups of salad. Remember, you're just eyeing the portions.. do you feel that lumping the fries and potatoes together with the small amount of bread was the same size, weight, proportion to the meat and salad? If you think so, then you've done well!

The BEST part about CALP/CAD is that you can relax somewhat at that Reward Meal. Tonight I wanted potatoes (probably because I craved them from yesterday's meal) but I also wanted a piece of pumpkin pie.. I just made sure that my portions of those two things together equaled those other 2/3's of my plate.

I'm still struggling getting enough water in.. but doing better each day.

Lisa

Default HI LISA

HI LISA,
THANKS. YES I THINK MY PORTIONS WERE OK. I'M COUNTING EXTRA SALAD AS MY OTHER VEGGIES. I THINK THAT'S OK. NO?
I DRIVE MYSELF CRAZY WITH THIS CRAP.
I LIKE THE WEIGH ONCE A WEEK BUT WITH MY LUCK I'LL START ON A LOW DAY AND FINISH ON A HIGH ONE. THEN I'LL REALLY LOSE MY MIND. MAYBE EVERY OTHER DAY. NOT TOMORROW. FRIDAY. I NEED TO SEE SOME KIND OF LOSS HERE.

OK FRIENDS SEE YA! GOOD LUCK.

My eye is itching! This is the same type itch triggered by dairy. Anyone know if soy protein isolate (purchased in the bulk section) might have any dairy in it? I sure hope so, cause I don't want another stupid allergy!

Drank my water, exercised. SORE muscles!

I was down a pound this morning, but think I'll wait for a day or so before I take the loss. I've decided to make sure to wear all my good clothes now. That way, when they don't fit anymore, I can throw them away with no guilt.

Default HI lowco

HEY lowco,
ARE YOU ON ATKINS? I SEE YOU HAVE NO CARBS. MAYBE I SHOULD TRY TO DO THAT A FEW DAYS A WEEK. I WONDER IF THAT WILL SPEED THINGS UP AT ALL? I WAS ON ATKINS, BUT I WANTED SOME CARBS. I'M SO CONFUSED. I FEEL LIKE IF I'M NOT LOSING I'M WASTING SO MUCH TIME. I HAVE BEEN DOING LC SINCE JAN.AND HAVE REALLY LOST ALMOST NOTHING.
MAYBE IT JUST DOESN'T WORK FOR ME. I'M GETTING ANTSY.

B: Coffee, Irish creamer, splenda

L: Large baked chicken breast w/lemon pepper seasoning
1 large stalk celery w/cream cheese

D: Nachos (about 8 large Tostitos chips), ground beef w/taco
seasoning, about 1 TBSP Salsa
1 Cup Spinach
2 Cups Salad

60 oz. water today!!! Hopefully I'll get in another 8 oz. at least before bedtime.

How did everyone do today?

Lisa

Lightbulb WATER DIET

i read this on a weightloss board. The dieter claim to lose weight by drinking:


2 glasses of water( 16 oz) 15 or so minutes before eating each meal.
same 1/2 hour after each meal.

it's worth a try.............no special foods to buy



bye

I did ok again today, cleaned the bathrooms. Oh, that's a different thread.

B: & L: My usual

D: HUGE chicken salad - 2 1/2 helpings. I was starved!! Then for my carb a treat. soy milk, soy protein, blueberries all blended into a milkshake. My dh's suggestion. Rather, he tempted me. LOL

I cut my coffee intake by about 75% and I think I have a slight headache.

I have a killer recipe for chocolate protein bars. I quit making them cause it wouldn't be CM ok. sigh
