Jezzie, I hear ya about getting sick of chicken. I try to be creative, rethink my idea of snacks.
April, you go girl!!!!
Robin of iron will, I salute you!!! I ate some chocolate; it was sugar free. Still it is not a good food for me, bad health wise and it stalls my weight loss (loss in NOLA haha) The thing about sugar and I promise this is true: the longer you go without it, the less you want it.

Default hey hey

wow, my stomach is just growling away today.
i've eaten about 500 calories so far as I'm saving for supper so guess I'll have to find something really low to snack on
scale said 203.2 today - my hopes of seeing that number 1 in front are being stretched out, it's torment LOL
go for my intial physio consult tomorrow, hopefully get this arm working right again
Anyway, have a great day all and be strong!

Kicked butt with another 2 miles on lunch again today. That makes 6.75 for the week. Didn't someone have a goal set to do 7 miles this week? I almost made it!
Came in from my walk to tables in the lunchroom filled with breads, pasta, lunchmeats, dressing, taco salad, blah blah blah. I took one clump of turkey breast (about 2-1/2 bites) and was happy at that. I grabbed my orange out of the fridge and I know that if I need it I still have a Fiber One protein bar in my bag that I have been toting back & forth to work all week. I even got 2 hershey's nuggets yesterday and dropped them in my bag for emergency use later!

I do believe I can say that I got this. Dinner is still my downfall but if I can do as well as I have been with all other aspects of the day I can afford to enjoy dinner with my family. That was one promise that I always made to myself was that I would not let my goals get in the way of dinner with my guys. They are soon going to be moving out on their own (one is joining the navy after high school) and I want them to remember dinner at home with their parents. It is our one strong tradition. Every night (except rare ocassions) we eat dinner together, at the table.

Whoa, you are a BEAST! 6.75 miles and the week is still young. It looks like April got her groove back!

That groove ends on Friday for walking though. LOL! Saturday is my only real day with my hubby now so Sunday is strictly housework day unless I sneak one in with the dogs. I don't usually do that in the winter though. We'll see if I get a workout in tonight yet though.

I am WOEFULLY behind in my posts. So other than addressing some of you in this post, I send the rest of you huge hugs of encouragement or praise--whatever you need most.

AND I'M GOING TO BE SURE THIS POST GOES THROUGH. Gosh, I think I'm losing my marbles! EDITED IN LATER: Now I know for sure this post went through--and if it disappears I'll know there is a poltergeist deleting my posts. LOL

Robin, no, I didn't think I was posting this morning. LOL But I honestly did lose another post today that I swore I made sure went through. I haven't been doing this in other areas of my life--at least my family isn't saying I have and my 8 and 11 year old grandkids would be the first to laugh it up over such mishaps. I can't lay claim to any eating lifestyle "heroics." My two evening carb binges were simply my seeing some tempting carby stuff I wanted and having no desire at all to fight those cravings. Once I took the first carby bite I wanted more and more and just kept stuffing it in. The cheats were just at night. I tried something different tonight, though--didn't have my snack planned but did think yesterday that plating my evening snack may help. Tonight I put 4 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast on a plate along with a homemade low carb protein square. Something psychologically more satisfying about that... Wow! Wow! Wow! Major, major, major kudos on putting out the chocolates for others to enjoy and feeling indifferent about them! I was soooo glad no one gave me chocolates for Valentine's Day--I would NOT have been able to resist.

Frenchhen, great report yesterday! "Together we are geniuses." I LOVE THAT!!!

Nyda, adding my welcome back, too.

Jenn, thanks for giving us your checkup report. It is my understanding that protein helps slow down the absorption of carbs. And protein also helps speed up one's metabolism. I'm glad your doc appreciates your asking questions. My doc is like that, too, and even encourages me to email her any questions between visits--and I do. Best wishes on getting your A1C down. I don't expect mine to be normal this time, either, with my recent evening carb binges.

Donna and Hope, I was just busy with grandkids the past couple days--they were off school Thursday and Friday and will be again on Monday. In the evening DH was on the computer and I layed around with my sinus headaches--wood smoke allergy--several neighbors with fireplaces. UGH
I'm much better now and food is on track. Kudos to both of your on your reports!

April, congrats on all your exercise!

Jezzie, I am sooooooo rooting for you to see 199.9 on your scale!

Darlene, kudos on walking and only 2 chocolate covered strawberries!

Cassie, I hope your vertigo is better. Great report yesterday! I've never heard of a temp of 95.1 being normal. My normal temp is about 97.2 as it is for a couple of my grandkids.

Mern, I don't think she "appreciates" me asking questions but is impressed that I take the time to do my homework. I just figure it's MY health and I'm going to ask!
I sent an email to my dietician at diabetes centre because I question my A1C going up 2 percent in 4 months. I know I wasn't eating horribly and my glucose numbers were only 1 point higher than normal. The specialist Dr would like me to go on metformin but I am so against it based on the side effects (like your insides are going to explode). I am willing to do the work.

For the first time I actually have hope that I might be able to lose weight. I was so frustrated trying to figure out how I was ever going to lose weight. Now I can up my protein in the morning!

We had chicken pot pie for dinner and I only put the top crust on. Still the same flavour but less carbs.
Jenn

One more workout for the week. This one was 20 minutes cardio/yoga mixture. Got my sweat on really good but rested my legs a little bit compared to the kettlebell I have been doing.

April, you are ROCKING IT with the exercise. Way to go!!!

Jenn, how was your iron level the day of the test? Red meat, eggs and oatmeal are listed as good sources of iron. So doing very low protein could cause low iron if not supplemented. My source for that question was: A1C test: Results - MayoClinic.com "If you don't have enough iron in your bloodstream, your A1C test results may be falsely high."

I do take over-the-counter meds for my occasional sinus headaches and for occasional arthritis pain, but I turned down a prescription for Metformin, too, and then later was able to prove I could control my blood sugar through diet alone. However, if my blood sugar level ever gets so high that my dietary restrictions don't continue to control it, I will reassess my position after again weighing the risks of meds vs. complications of diabetes. I had a triglyceride test I disputed once and doc was kind enough to consider that my results may have been skewed by OTC sinus meds I took for 5 days before and up to the midnight before the test. Next test was way more believable.

That is so darned cool. Yup, protein is supposed to help with weight loss. This may be your ticket to that. Kudos on leaving the top crust off the pot pie. Smart thinking!
