Lisa! Congratulations on your good day! Your menu looks good and I see you are adding a little more protein. I hope that helps with your hunger.

Green tea--3 to 5 cups per day YES, YES
Choose most foods from those known to help boost metabolism YES, YES
Several small meals instead of three big ones YES, YES

Small meal #2 lean, preservative free deli roast beef with fresh spinach and horseradish sauce on a low carb, high fiber tortilla
Small meal #3 nuked wild caught pollock fish and ranch dressing coleslaw

2. Continue logging all food no matter how ugly it gets.
did it! yep.
3. Take meds 2x day on time.
yes! yes!
4. Weigh & measure everything.
yes! did good.
Great job Lisa!! And I would say that YES your calories count was a success.
You don't have to be perfect... Just better!

My knee is still bothering me. Thought it was getting better but it was really bad again this morning. Looks like my workout goal is not going to happen this week. Just have to make up for it in other ways. On a positive note I may have actually figured out portion control. This has been my nemesis since starting. Just trying to overcome a whole lifetime of too much food on my plate and even second and third portions.

Hey Everyone!

I'm back from my back-packing trip. What was supposed to be a relaxing, reflective time turned into a true adventure. Our first few days were absolutely incredible! Temps in the upper 70's and amazing fall colors. But, our cabin proved to be an adventure in itself. The road in kept getting narrower and narrower, and steeper and steeper. The last .3 mile was a just about completely vertical, sharply curving, black-topped road barely the width of my SUV. No shoulders, one lane and a 20' drop on either side.

It was actually doable until hurricane Sandy's rain bands started to come in. Then the "Road From Hell" became wet and covered with slippery, soaked leaves on top of everything else. We stayed at the top of the mountain until the last night when the forecast indicated that temps at the higher elevations (us) would dip below freezing and freezing rain and snow were possible on the morning that we were going to leave at 5am to begin our trip home. When they suggested that we bring in bottled water and provisions "in case we were stranded for a few days", we asked the rental company for an alternative location.

So, we were moved to a luxurious cabin at a lower elevation for the last night at our request and other than a 200' vertical driveway, we made it out the following morning without incident. Because of the rain, we had to cancel some of our hikes and basically sat in a hot tub eating everything in sight (not exactly health food... ) washing it down with some wine that I picked up at a local winery. Needless to say, I gained much more weight than I lost and am back with a mission to lose 8 pounds by Thanksgiving. Goals to follow...

1. Calories under 1200; no exceptions.
2. No bread, cheese, deep-fried, etc.
3. Take vitamins and supplements.
4. 3-5 fruits and veggies a day.
5. Hike, weather permitting.


I have lots of reading to do to catch up on everyone's lives!! Feels good to be home... I need a vacation from my vacation!

I was watching Dr. Oz this afternoon. While I don't always agree with his ideas I was curious about the show today as he had Chris Powell on talking about his book. Did anyone see this and if so what do you think?

Mern, your daily menus always look so well balanced. I'm going to have to take notes from you.

Ron, sorry to hear your knee is giving you a rough time. Hope it feels better soon.

I started back up with Fitday 1 week ago, feeling frustrated and depressed from my fall head first off the wagon and the weight gain that followed. After I was invited to come to this group I started doing a lot better. Still struggling a little, but way better. And guess what? I lost 2.6 lbs!!! Yea It feels so good to be back in the lose column, and that was even after my major screw ups over the weekend. I'm sure part of it was water weight, but at least it's not on me anymore. So, thanks everyone for the encouragement and your posts are really motivating for me.

Happy Halloween!
Lisa
