I am up 4 or 5 lbs, yes, bye bye 120s ... I blame Mike haha for that incredible crawfish boil ( so much food!!! so cool to see how it is cooked!!!) We had so much fun DH and I refused to leave and Mike and his GF gave us dinner too. Great family, great time. Well behaved chilluns, cute doggies (yes I got to meet Close and Mytsie up close and personal) and of course, Stanley, so cool, such a nice little guy...
Them chirrens are well behaved b/c they know who's boss. Chloe' and Mytsie had a good time. I think Mytsie spent half the day in your lap. I glad y'all had a good time, I know we sure did, even Stanley. Hell I was kinda shocked that my GF invited y'all to San Francisco with us. I just wish the weather would have been warmer so I could have laid out the crawfish on the table, outside. BTW, that wasn't a lot of food, that was a snack.

I've gained back about ten pounds between working there and Christmas treats and winter slump.
I tried to get back on track February first and I wasn't feeling it and haven't lost anything. Then I thought, what was I doing that was different last year? And the answer was this thread.
Sooooo, I'm back and hoping to make it work this time. I know it's Sunday but I thought I'd say hi today and start with goals tomorrow. So hi!
I remember you! Welcome back. Tori is still here. I told her that you were asking about her, she said to tell you "hi", I told her to tell you herself, maybe she'll peek back in.
Hi nobe nice to meet you I've been here since Christmas........you're right the accountability helps a lot.
Jezzie the Quinoa Tabbouleh turned out really yummy. Only thing is I used my chopper that came with the blender and used it wrong and the vegs were chopped up too small. I only figured out the error after.
I also managed to put together a flatbread pizza today that came out to 120 cals per slice (small I had 2).
Hope I am gonna try kale chips tonight or tomorrow. I think I am make them in the actifry which takes less oil to get things crispy.
