Hi everyone.

Renewed soul you are an inspiration to us all!

Libby, too bad about the weight, hhmm what can you eat at Tim's? Ans: NOTHING right Jenn?

I am uncertain about setting goals as I am traveling again re: my son's eye surgery (the office is 5+ hours away). I don't know.........something like exercise reason I guess. Plus I am attending 2 all day conferences. It's gonna be an out of the ordinary week.

I forgot to weigh this morning, but if I'm up on the scale it would be from water retention which comes off more easily than gained fat weight. I didn't log my food today, but know for sure I ate low cholesterol, low sat fat, and stayed in my calorie range of 1200-1600. Spent a good part of the day making homemade low carb soup with fresh veggies from DH's garden. I thought DH would eat that for dinner along with a sandwich, but he wanted to eat soup for a snack tonight and have a sausage and peppers casserole for dinner, so I had to go back outside to pick more fresh veggies for the casserole. But both dishes came out great. My son came in, said the soup smelled so good and asked if he could have a bowl of it. Then he saw the casserole and had some of that, too. :)

Jenn, wishing you better carb control this week. It's not always easy, I know. Best wishes with your goals.

Count Mike, glad to see your goals posted-- ah, ah, ah!

RenewedSoul, I hope to be able to take a more active part in our thread this week. Nice that your daughter is your walking buddy. :)

Libby, I thought about you when I got up this moring. What kind of food is at Tim's? I'll try with you to exercise more this week.

Nyda, very nice lunch! :) I took three of my grandkids to a buffet for lunch and had roasted chicken, brussels sprouts, cooked spinach, green beans, and strawberries with artificial sweetener. I did also have about a tablespoon of cocktail sauce (which would be like catsup/ketchup and grated horseradish) on some steamed shrimp. But that was my only cheat.

Robin, when is your son's eye surgery? Why do you have to travel so far--is it because the surgery is unusual? Just do the best you can this week under difficult circumstances--don't sweat the small stuff. Big supportive hug to ya!

Where are Quinn, Cassie, Tori, April, and Hope? So many other veterans not around lately... But I was gone for a while, too, so I understand it's not always easy to come here and post.

libby116 08-12-2013 11:52 PM

8 glasses of water: Y,
calories under 1100: Y,
walking every day: M-Y

I was posting a message when I got a call to go out walking. I must have been out for at least half an hour if not more.
Mern: Tims has every thing good but nothing good for you, like Renewed Soul said. The day ended up better than it started.
