I think I had better join in on this too! I have been trying to only have a sweet at RM 2-3 times a week, but I made Christmas cookies over the weekend and they are calling to me at RM's, so this will help me stay accountable!

Anyway... My CM's are easy... Breakfast is usually 2 egg salad made w/ mayo only. Lunch is salad with homemade dressing(mayo, olive oil, water and spices)and 3-4 oz of meat... (tuna or ground turkey, etc).

RM tonight will be a large salad, turkey, a spoon full of dressing, maybe some winter squash and a low carb veggie. Then instead of something sweet, I'll have toast with peanut butter and a little smidge of apple butter... funny, but I just love it!

I worked out this am to aerobics and if it doesn't start raining before lunch, I'll walk 25 minutes.

well I just had the pigout of pigouts. so dinner has changed. I sit next to the kitchen and I've been smelling the leftover chinese food in there I made it 4 hours and then, I ate sweets for an entire hour. The weird thing is that I'm not overfull just sickened from too much sweetness.

man I'll be so bummed if this causes me to gain tomorrow but how could it not?

I'll probably not eat anything the rest of the day.

Talking Hi there everyone!!!

Nancy: don't worry about it. You can't always be perfect!! Everyone crashes now and then. I don't really crash I rather fall flat on my face in the most undignified manner!! And about the slice of pizza: I was on the run otherwise I would have had a salad too, but I must admit that after the first few days on cad the hunger just disappears. Last night for my CM I only managed to eat some veggies I just couldn't get any meat down I know I should have but I just wasn't hungry, and this morning either. I had my coffee more to warm up than because of hunger or the need to get something into me....

Lowco: I use whatever's in the fridge for my coffee, milk or cream, but I use full cream milk basically for the taste. Low fat milk tastes like dishwater.... and no, I don't get hungry at all...

I've noticed that when people binge they often don't come back to the board for awhile ... I'd just like to say that I think that's the worst thing we can do, because it makes us feel doubly alone!! Let's remeber to come back here for support even if we are bingeing and are ashamed cause just maybe it'll help us get up and dust off that much faster!!! I know it works for me!!!!

Have a great CAD-DAY everyone!!!
Can you guys feel Christmas coming?
Goody goody goody I love Christmas!!!
C.

today was my first day exercising in months(recovering from an injury). I did 2.7 miles on the treadmill at lunch. It was great, it sure increased my hunger.

Man there is candy and junkfood all over at work. Today I actually had a piece of sees candy in my hand, checked the box for carb content (I was hoping it would be less than 5carbs) and put it back.

I feel like I'm making progress, getting my thyroid checked on friday, hopefully I can restart my medication and that will get my weight loss going again.

Weight's up, weight's down, I'm sticking to plan, but no real loss. Why? Cause I'm just restarting CALP and it takes time for the body to take notice.

Got an aerobic tape and we used it the second time tonight. I FREAKING HATE THOSE MOUTH BREATHING BOUNCING CUTIES. There, I feel better. Why on earth can't they tape the steps instead of showing faces and grins? I'm just not getting it. Most likely just too old to bounce anymore. I took an aerobic class 20 years ago; when I learned a step, they knew it was time to move on to a new step. My left feet have not improved. Only consolation is my husband is worse at it than I am.

Our next aerobic night, we're just jumping rope. Bet I get that down before he does. You oughta see him. Sweetest man in the world. He's not an athlete, never was, never will be.

Tomorrow's another day.

spider- you're never too old to bounce! Actually I like the hard steps because it distracts me from how tired and bored I am.

I'm totally disheartened after weighing in today at 144. I decided to just eat 20 carbs today and see what happens. I don't know maybe my thyroid is too low to lose weight right now.

Jump rope for 15 minutes and then did the weights. We've improved so much on both the jumping and the weights in just 5 days, I'm very pleased with myself and DH. We've increased the weights and are not as totally exhausted when we finished. The garage is now a gym. Bet the neighbor kids out there skateboarding wonder what the groans and grunts are about. HA!

Still on plan and no loss.

Keep up the good work everyone. I figure if I don't gain during the holidays it's as good as weight loss. I can do fine then there's a social thing and the plan goes up in smoke.
