I cracked

Had to stop by an office that always has the best candy laying around. And my will power left me and I caved. Dang it. Had not cheated once in 8 days

Eggs again

I don't know how many more days I can eat eggs. Starting to get to me. YUCK. Scale still only showing a 4 lb loss which is kinda disappointing because your first week you are supposed to lose the most. Last time I lost 11 lbs. At least I will get to swim today for exercise so maybe that will jump start something.

Not sure if this is South Beach approved

What happens when you forget your lunch while your on the road? Taco Bell Nachos Bell Grande without the Nachos. It was tasty and so far 4.5 lbs were gone from the morning weigh in.

Already a loss

The scale is already showing a 3 lb loss. I weigh myself everyday can't help it. It keeps me motivated. I am staying very full and satisfied but may already be sick of eggs. Made chili last night so will be able to eat on that for a few days plus it is something different.

Low Carb Breakfast hits the spot

Wow I was stuffed with egg beaters, mushroom and cheese along with broccoli salad for breakfast. I am just now eating lunch at 1:00 which is a huge difference from 11 when I have cereal for breakfast. Chicken tenderloins again for lunch with ranch sauce. But my low carb worry is already starting!!! UGH although I already feel more energy and not so sluggish. If my knee was not hurting so I could possibly get some real exercise in.

Had a great first day even though my sister made macaroni and cheese for dinner and there was left over shower cake in her fridge. I did not cheat at all. This is my evening snack sugar free jello and cool whip free. Even got some exercise in

Chicken for Breakfast

Having a baby shower this evening so their will be cake and finger foods. Then the store either after the shower or in the morning. Now to sweep this pet hair covered house then a nice swim.

Had a full day

A variety packed Friday had one visit then watched a movie with my sister then sat by the pool and swam, got ready and ate at Bob Evans, then Mariah's gymnastic meet, then a little gaming and home to make some videos for my other blog. During my variety packed day I have decided to try the South Beach again. It worked before and I am so sick of counting calories. My weight has stayed the same so that is good. I need to get away from carbs. They zap my energy and having me craving food all day hungry or not. I think I will start Sunday since I have no food in the house.

Eat like a skinny person

Well I am pleased and shocked to discover I only gained half a pound this week with so much food and such little exercise. I did get a 70 min swim yesterday despite an all day headache. I want to learn to eat like a skinny person. I want to take small bites, not clean my plate every meal, not eat because it is there,etc. I want to hit someone when they say 'I forgot to eat lunch' I wake up thinking about lunch how can I forget something as important as lunch. Skinny people forget lunch!!!

This is for someone I know that needs prayers right now

End of the season

Ate the last cucumber yesterday morning then last evening we mowed the garden down, picked the last of the potatoes, squash and green beans. I have been doing much better than normal since I think I had a high blood sugar scare. I have always had normal blood sugars and Friday Amy who has gestational diabetes let me check mine and it was 153. I had had a huge breakfast and a small lunch of a peanut butter fiber bar about 20 min prior to that test. So I looked that number up and read on one site that was normal and on others that is high. So high or not I am doing much better eating and exercising.

Turning into a monkey

I have eaten 3 bananas this evening. I guess there could be worse snacks but when counting calories that is almost 300. Other than the banana binge I have done decent this week. The scale already down 2 lbs. Hoping for a successful weekend as well.

Fresh Peaches Plus

So far so good counting calories. Got a ton of fruit in today starting with fresh peaches from a tree overloaded in the yard, then raspberries, and watermelon. Then some other foods in between that were low in calorie, even snuck is a swim and mowing.

Starting over AGAIN

In a little over two weeks I gained back 5 lbs. So even though my knee is terrible and I will have very limited exercise options, I am started over back to my Lose It calorie counting program and focusing on more whole food choices instead of processed food. Here we go again geez
