Almeeker,,too funny about your friend eating his orange. He must have been having some terrible cravings! I ate another apple the next day and it was good..no stomach ache this time. Maybe my body had a little shock? Going to try something different this week,,,maybe an orange. Even though Ive added some new foods this week,,Im down still. This morning I hit 280 ,,,come on 270ís....I can almost taste it! Haha
Welcome Paige..the best reason to lose weight is for yourself!! Great attitude
Desertmountain reading your post I was wondering if you could spray your airpopped popcorn with some Pam or some other spray and then add your own salt. I prefer the old fashioned popcorn on the stove and measure out my oil in the pot.. then add some low sodium salt. My favourite treat! I have been depending on diet pop and sugar free candies to satisfy those cravings. I occasionally make sugar free jelly but find it very chemically tasting...im currently looking for some new recipes for something sweet. Ive tried a few but blech!! Ha
Next weekend is Easter..what are your plans to stay on plan?? Any ideas? We had turkey last weekend so I will for a fat free ham,,,make dh some type of potatoes,,and we both love veggies with cheese sauce (which I can make low fat) a nice strawberry spinach salad, and maybeeeeeeee some type of dessert.
Have a great week everyone....
Good idea about using spray oil on the popcorn - Has anyone every tried the one that says butter on the can? Does it taste like butter or fake butter flavor?
That's funny that you mentioned new dessert recipes b/c I just posted a thread in the Food section asking ppl for recipes. I've been on other websites looking for a dessert recipe for Easter but nothing looks good that is low calorie and low fat without flour. We're having turkey & cauliflower 'dressing'. I haven't made the 'dressing' since I was on Atkins and will have to leave out the butter, but it's basically just well-cooked then drained cauliflower with minced & sauteed (in butter of course) onions, celery, black pepper, salt & poultry seasoning & extra sage.
How do you like SB? It sounds like it suits you and that you're losing fast. I still can't eat the amounts of starch & fruit that he wants us to eat without stalling or gaining--but by using Fitday and weighing myself a couple of times a week I'm finding out which ones I can eat & which ones are causing the problems. SB seems like a very healthy & balanced way of eating that's doable as far as maintaining it forever since I'm no longer interested in fast weight loss but in finding a new way of eating. Even my husband likes a lot of the new recipes (like your chili) & is buying low fat & sugar-free versions of some of his favorite foods now.
