Joanna, I hope you get a nibble on your house after the open house today. And now you're caught up on housework and yardwork! That must feel really good, too.

Mike, thanks for the clarification on the swivel. Old! You call 40 OLD? So that makes me ANCIENT! Now let's see how well you can smooth-talk your way out of THAT statement: "...it does suck being old." Hmm, where did I put that whip? LOL

Oh Mern, I was agreeing with Cassie that being old sucks. Not that I'm old... but she is.

OK, you got me, Mike. Yeah, you succeeded in smooth-talking your way out of that with ME, but I don't know about Cassie. You're lucky she's on the east coast on vacation!

Uh-oh, Mike opened a can of worms! He'd better go WAY out on that fishing boat where Cassie AND Quinn can't get to him. I'll just sit here in my rocking chair trying to remember my name and have fun watching the kiddies duke it out.

Looks like sometimes it doesn't pay to be the only rooster in the hen house. LOL

Sunday report: early, but my snack for later tonight is logged with only 7 calories to spare and is awaiting my arrival in the TV room. Reporting in now will close the kitchen.

Lost 3 lbs. this past week after having been stalled since the beginning of July. I'm 99% sure it was due to the sodium nitrite in my deli meat--I'd been eating it every day. When I switched to preservative free deli meat, the weight (which I knew HAD to be water weight) started draining away. Thanks again for mentioning your problem with sodium nitrite, Mary.


Calorie limit 1600 1621, 1137, 1131, 1344, 833--busy and not very hungry, 1309, 1600

Sat fat limit 12% of total calories 14%, 10%, 9%, 10%, 12%, 13% 10%
Dietary Cholesterol average 300mg per day 548, 155, 599, 224, 122, 254, 266 (avg. 310-ALMOST GREEN)
Track protein grams and % 128 or 33%, 98 or 36%. 88 or 32%, 98 or 30%, 82 or 41%, 134 or 44%, 132 or 36%

Artificial sweetener limit 2 packets per day 2, 0, 2, 1, 0, 0, 0 BEST I'VE EVER DONE
Sugar Free candy limit 2 pieces per day 1, 2, 2, 4 2, 0, 2
5 servings veggies/fruit per day YES, YES, 2, 2, 4, YES, 4-- WORST WEEK EVER AND I LOVE VEGGIES
Vitamin D and Fish oil daily NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, N0-NOW THAT'S JUST PLAIN LAZY
Do best to avoid nitrates/nitrites started Tuesday, YES YES Oops, missed one--should have known the ham steak I ate would have sodium nitrite--but I did TRY my best. YES YES YES

Water 64 oz. Exercise 5 days YES, YES YES YES YES YES, YES

WCBS, hi. I hope you'll be joining us on our new week's thread tomorrow. We're always at the top of the Support group for just women, which includes our male moderator Mike and he's a good guy. We all learn so much and gain so much support from each other. Plus we also have fun.

I'm gonna go watch TV now.

Goodnight, y'all!

Oh, no you didn't!!!!!!!!!!!!


I don't know about you, but I console myself with the fact that I'm in much better shape now than I ever was when I was younger.

Mern, I see you're putting the info from the book to good use .
