April, my sat fat goal is 12% of total calories. The number 25 is my usual limit of net carbs (carbs less fiber) and is also my usual target for fiber grams. Both those targets are from what my doctor and I worked out together to fit my personal needs to control my blood sugar and reduce my cholesterol and triglycerides without medication. Your weight loss last week was absolutely fantastic! Cogratulations! I still maintain that fat weight and water weight look the same, so no matter what it was made of, you still lost 8.8 lbs. :) Congrats, also, on mastering the salt and diet coke. I see you are continuing those really strong, beneficial goals this week. Kudos on that--you are rockin' it, girl! Aw, so sorry to hear about the fight your son got into, but as you already stated, maybe some good will come of it since the RN gave him the same speech about finding a way to address his problems besides taking them out in anger against someone else. That support and fortification of parental advice goes a long way. I hope your other son has a wonderful time at the Valentines dance. So cute. Valentine's Day is my live-in GD's and her boyfriend's first anniversary of going together. They celebrated yesterday at a nice Italian restaurant yesterday, though, because she has to work Tuesday.

Woops! Sorry for mixing your numbers up but thanks for the explanation! :)

They really are so cute. They were dating for a while before homecoming and then they broke up for about a month or so. But they have been back together since before Christmas now.

Oh Monday, how I love you.....skipped our normal Subway run today for mexican!! It was good, and I'm pretty sure I did fairly well, just gonna have to watch supper real close tonight. I HAVE to get a walk in tonight, whether it's freezing butt cold or not!! And it's supposed to BE freezing butt cold, maybe even a wintery mix in the forecast for the morning. Yay?

Will check back in after work!!

*** caution post contains 2 instances of food porn *** LOL

Just walked past a table where there is cherry iced fudge sitting out for the taking. Looked at the package. No nutrition facts to be found. Put it back down and kept walking. Can't log it? Can't eat it! That's my new theory.

I have been hoarding an apple in my desk drawer since last week in case I have the need to eat something extra but so far it's still there. I think about the extra carbs & calories and just decide to wait for dinner because regardless if I eat that apple, I'm still going to eat the same amount of dinner. Speaking of dinner.... hubby is turning our leftover pot roast, carrots & onions, homemade beef gravy and mashed potatoes into a shepherd's pie for tonight's dinner. This is a huge problem for me as this is a large portion of my comfort foods all in one dish! So I am being very careful today. LOL

April, that's sweet that your son and GF could take being broken up for only a month. My daughter and her BF split a year ago and my 10 year old granddaughter told me this morning they're getting back together. I'm not happy about it because he's too immature for her and she coddles him too much to the point where she lets him use her and control her, but I can't my daughter's life for her, much as I'd like to. So I try to keep my opinions to myself but when I hear things I sometimes just tell her, "I'll bite my tongue and not tell you what I think."

Terri, oh, I see I misread your post. I see now you didn't say that you didn't log your food because you were ashamed--you said you didn't log ON. Well, when I'm cheating badly, I neither log my food NOR log on. :( So kudos to you for logging! That is praiseworthy, girl! Not joking! More kudos on working out Sunday and recommitting to a healthier and more in-control week this week! I wanna be like YOU when I grow up! :) Oh, your chicken rice soup sounds really delicious! Hard to know how much fat is absorbed into the broth but when your recipe makes such a large amount, you don't get all that much fat per serving anyway. Maybe I SHOULD try riding the horse, because I've been falling off the wagon too much. LOL Best wishes for sticking with those wonderful goals this week! Big hug to ya!

Tori, I was lucky to be able to avoid Subway today when I made a run there for my 16 year old GD who was supposedly home at my house sick, but gave me a huge smile when I offered to get Subway for HER. Now how big a stomach ache can one have to eat a 6" that included extra banana peppers and a medium pop? Glad you enjoyed your Mexican food. Hope you get in your walk before that wintry mix hits.

Mike, I get up 5-6 times a night on 60 oz. (small bladder, the docs tell me) but I can usually go right back to sleep if a need for a potty trip is all that wakes me. If I drank 128 oz. I'd have to spend the night on the toilet.

Gotta go pick up the grandkids. Seems that always happens when I get to Terri's posts. Terri, do you usually post around the same time? I'll be back to catch up with you later.

I usually post sometime around lunch-ish? Anywhere between 11 and 1 depending on the day. And hey, if you've got mud in your pores your skin should eventually look WONDERful, right? :D All that's left to do is hoist yourself back on the wagon, looks like you're off to a good start!!

Mern 02-13-2012 07:20 PM

Terri, that's it: I'm often on the computer between 1:20 and 1:40PM at which time I must leave to pick up my high school grandkids. I guess that's why I often run out of time by the time I get to your post. It's nothing personal, just the time frame. You're usually my bookmark as to where to continue or begin posting again. LOL

Well, yeah, I'm not as wrinkled as many women my age, so I guess those muddy pores are beneficial. Thanks for letting me ride along side of you when I'm not being dragged. :)

Mine isn't an adult yet so it's not that kind of situation. They are only 14. I try not to be too serious about it. I know the chances of this girl being "the one" are slim to none. Just because I married the man I dated at 15, LOL, doesn't mean everyone does!

Now, does he need to get her a corsage for a Valentine's Day dance? I never went to a high school dance so I don't know these things.

Mern 02-13-2012 07:35 PM

April, I always read the food porn. But I can make a low carb shepherd's pie using mashed cauliflower, so I'm OK on that one. Tonight I'm making a casserole out of lean ground beef, cooked cabbage, onion, tomatoes, and chili powder, salt substitute and pepper to taste. And it's delicious. :) Aw, great job on keeping that apple in your desk! Too bad on the treat sitting out, but you're right, if you can't log it, you probably shouldn't eat it.

I just asked the opinions of my 2 high school granddaughters and they both said that at their high school (in Ohio) corsages are worn at prom and sometimes at homecoming but they generally don't for other dances such as Valentine's. But they also said it's always optional and at their school the couple can do what THEY like.

Terri Sorry to hear about your crash and burn weekend but happy to hear you bounced back quickly. I love chicken soup I think Cassie was eating it last week also but with all the veggies and lean protein itís got to be much healthier than a lot of other lunch choices.

Mike I think itís a combination of saggy skin and some muscle loss when I was at work I was always lifting and moving stuff around so I got a ton of upper body work and since itís been 7 months since I have worked I have started to notice a decline in my arm tone.:(

Mern If icecream is a sin I was in big trouble yesterday good thing I know were forgiveness comes from:). Cereal is crazy bad for you if you eat whole bowl the way I do, the only cereal I eat now is bran buds and I weigh my 25grams and put it with yogurt or bananas no more large bowls of so called healthy cereal for me.

April I do not usually like shepherdís pie but no one has ever made it for me with roast and carrots that sounds like a shepherdís pie I would eat. Nice job walking away from the fudge.:D

Mern Thatís a parenting skill I am still working on it is so hard to watch your kids do things you know are not good choices for them and to hold your tongue about it.

I got a walk in I didnít hike as it would have been to hard to get home if I was needed to so we walked the waterfront. I spent 1.5 hours wearing out Kaya and I would not let her sleep she kept looking at me like what do you want me to do but she needed to stay up so I could stick her in her crate so dd didnít have to deal with her and that way they both slept while I was out. Thanks for your well wishes I think she just has a flu but when she gets a fever and dehydrated her electrolytes go all wonky which makes her bp drop and her pacemaker works overtime and that makes the passing out worse. If sheís well enough tomorrow we will go get her blood tested but I called the Dr and he said to increase her potassium and magnesium by 1 pill each and she takes a drug to increase her bp so we upped it and put her on the couch with oj and water, it just sucks because there is nothing I can do to help but she will get through it with a smile she always does. Have a great day and if you have sunshine go out and enjoy it.:)

Yes, I agree with Mern, chocolates and/or flowers for Valentines Day certainly, but not necessarily a corsage.
