My Mom and I skipped sending out Christmas cards a couple of years. One year I sent out a couple of notes to close friends after Christmas when things calm down. We have to learn what is best for ourselves and not guilt ourselves into thinking "but I ALWAYS do it".

Jenn, I know how you feel--the frustration of losing the same 5 lbs. over and over. I joined this group at 240 In Jan. 2011, at one time got down to 207, and am back up to 229.5. But I know I can do this--just taking one day at a time with the help of my doctor and this wonderful group. I also understand the learning experience in meal plans. I almost went over in cholesterol for today. Luckily I ate only half my large salad at Wendy's that also had hard boiled egg and bacon in it. I was going to eat the other half for dinner until I discovered after logging that salad was so high in cholesterol. I usually eat zero cholesterol egg substitute. I saw in the nutrition tracker that one large chicken shell egg has 211mg cholesterol. My target is a maximum of 250mg cholesterol per day. So I am NOT eating the rest of that salad for dinner tonight, but can enjoy it for lunch tomorrow.

Hope, it took a lot of web surfing to come up with that list of metabolism boosting foods. Wish I'd found a ton more--but I'll still keep looking. I'm NOT letting go of that whip--too chicken! LOL

Gotta go pick up grandkids from school.

Will be back later.

Ama and Hope, thanks for the well-wishes.

Mern and Jenn, I totally feel your pain losing the same few pounds over and over. If I were pounding my head against the wall, I would learn that it's not a good idea and I would stop hurting my body. Why can't I apply the same concept to eating the wrong food?

1. Try to average 1650/day for the week. way off.
2. Get back to logging everything every day, even the bad stuff. yes
3. Take my meds 2x/day. yes
4. When I start to grab a high calorie, high sugar snack, make a better choice. yes.*

*ok, so in the a.m. before I made my goals I ate Oreo's. After I ate them and logged them is when I made the goal to stop eating high sugar, high calorie snacks. That I did. But then I later in the evening I was so starving, and I didn't know what else to have for a snack, so I grabbed some Cheez-Its. Those two things made my calories for the day sky-high. So I need to modify #4 to read "When I start to grab junk food, make a better choice."

One snack that I recently found was little mini rice cakes that are apple cinnamon flavored. They are really good! Crunchy, sweet, and you can have quite a few for not many calories. I need to buy more of those.

And tonight it's going to be sky-high again because we are having Panda Express for dinner. We rarely get it, and when dh says I can go get it, I can't turn it down. I will just have to make up for it some other way. There's always the dreaded "E" word.

(beware, men) Oh, and I shouldn't have weighed myself and beaten myself up over my weight gain up to 238 the other day. The next day was the start of ttom for me, and I always go up several lbs during that week. Already today it's 236.8, so I know by the end of the week it will be better.

Welcome to the group, smartday.

Quick update.
I thought I was doing well on what I ate today but when I added it up the carbs and protein they were both high. I did get some exercise in today and felt great after doing it (only about 20 min).
