BTW Cassie, that was a subtle invite for a crawfish boil.

I know it doesn't look like much food but the pot throws off the perspective. Even though it looks about empty, there was a sack of crawfish and all the fixins in it. Maybe we can get a bunch of FDers together and I can fill the pot?

Robin I am in for another week! I do the weekly deficit of 5000 as that should lead to a 1.5lb loss per week which would of got me to my goal but my first 3 weeks I just couldnít seem to get dedicated to my eating plan so I will need to change my goal date. Good for you for going out to walk you get the BIDIA award for that!!

Sounds like everyone is having a good Sunday! I haven't decided if I will walk today or not kind of leaning towards not since yesterday was supposed to be a lazy afternoon and it turned into grocery shopping, laundry and a dog walk. Have a good day!

Good for you, Robin! Way to go

I went back and forth about actually going. I was so tired and had so much home stuff and work stuff to do; I knew if I went, I would be gone a while so I almost talked myself out of it. But I went, 5 miles down, about 8 k, I guess, so that hits that goal for the week. And it helped clear my head a little, which I definitely needed.

Mike, so glad Stanley is having a wonderful time! I am sure his creator and class are going to love hearing about it. The crawfish boil looks awesome. I think we should try to get a bunch of folks together...how much fun would that be?!?!

Cassie, congrats on the miles. It would be such a fun time to get a group to meet up.

Mike: I reigned in the cals on Saturday a bit, but only a bit. It gets harder on weekends. & BTW, crawfish will probably knock my cholesterol over the fence.

Robin: Flooding, broken leg and snow. Doesn't sound like a great combo. Good to hear your hubby is on the mend, enough to drive seems like a pretty quick recovery. I guess like most things, there are good days and bad. Glad you were able to get your walk in.

Jezzie: Yesterday must have been homemade soup day. Honey was under attack by some virus, so I made him chicken noodle. It was so worth the work. When you're feeling up to it you're going to have to find a really good Pilates instructor to help you with your back.

Nobe: It's sad that your co-worker didn't want to 'bother' anyone with her medical issues. The way I understand it, if it was a stroke the first hour is critical. And I don't have any advice on the pedometers. I never used one!

Cassie: Hope the presentation went well.

Hope: Enjoy Florida. What part are you going to?

Mern! Come back Mern!

Everyone else, see you Monday.

I don't know how I did it after starting the day with waffles, but everything looks pretty good! Except the weights, which I'm not doing because my work week is brutal and I don't wanna. Chances are I'll have something sweet later, but if I do I'll keep it within 150 calories.

I've been weighing myself every day or two and I haven't been close to the 173.5 I was at last Monday, so maybe that's why I'm in a bit of a funk. I'm being really good (for the most part) and I'm still back up to 176. Frustrating. I guess I have to get stricter with myself.

Thanks for all the nice responses everyone. I'm going to try to get better at replying. I'm pretty tired.

<1600 calories - 1450, 2140, 1327, 1493, 1891, 1450
>64oz water - yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, no
>20% protein - 22%, 21%, 26%, 29% (!), 24%, 31% (!!)
walk on days off - yes (3k+), worked, yes (3.3k), yes (pedometers were useless, guessing about 3k?), worked, yes
weights/calisthenics on days off - no, worked, no, some, worked, no
