I am back to check in after a rather successful month here..I have lost 6 lbs!! I am eating 1500 cal usually but aiming for a bit less just to see if I can shave off a few cal here and there. Most days Mon - Friday I can hit 1400 without much more effort, just better planning.

My " trick " if you can call it that is a big salad before dinner with romaine lettuce/cucumber/tomato and balsamic vinegar then we wait 10min and catch up on the day while I put dinner together, then we sit down and leisurely eat since the edge is off our appetites. My husband has his fave Caesar dressing on his salad. I think I am saving about 500 - 700 cal a week doing this...adds up!!

I also am using 1 Tbsp of yogurt and a touch of Dijon mustard to make egg salad instead of mayo. 18 cal for the yogurt as opposed to 99 for the mayo!!! I am using 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites.

I have lost 30 lbs then joined fitday and have lost 6 more. I am 224 and I am going down to 150 one lb at a time and finding great joy in doing so!!

We had company last night, I didn't have wine because I had fresh apple coffeecake for dessert with a tiny scoop of ice cream, my first dessert since Christmas. Today we are going out for lunch with these same people so I am filling up on water before I go. I would rather stay in near the fire but I tend to be hermit like and it is important to go out.

Dinner is in the crock pot and we will have another big salad only tonight it will be on our laps watching Doc Martin at 6 pm CST on PBS, hahaha he is very funny!!

Happy Sunday folks,

Nancy
