  • I remember. Interest rates were 10% when we bought our home in 1987. There are plenty of us that remember. It’s one of the reasons Reagan got elected. Don’t discount the seniors. There’s a lot of us, and the number is growing.
  • There’s no secret. Weight is lost, eating less calories than you burn. That’s it. How you accomplish that is a personal choice. Nutritional needs are important, so you may want to make sure you are achieving them as well.
  • It was + 42F here (TC metro area) yesterday. They showed people eating outside on the news. Snow is melting. After the coldest January since 2014, I guess, some are enjoying “the warm weather’.
  • For me it’s the opposite. Harder to motivate in hot, humid weather. I’d much rather go for walks in the sub zero weather. As long as you’re dressed for it. I get colder walking in rain than snow. Being wet can be colder than snow. I have a George Foreman grill, and just received a grill pan for Christmas. The grill pan can…
  • Ordered and received confirmation on 1/20. No kits or any indication of being shipped yet. The email indicated kits would start being shipped late January. With shipping by the US postal service, not surprising because of the slowdown🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I did it. I just didn’t tell anyone. I lost 40 pounds before anyone noticed and asked. I had a lot to lose though. My husband worked afternoons and I worked days. I do the cooking. Paid very close attention to portion sizes, and ate very little processed food. It can be done.
  • Does anyone think that some of these shortages at grocery stores may be from employees out because of Covid? No one to stock shelves? There hasn’t been any noticeable shortages here. I grocery shopped yesterday, and the shelves were all full. I grocery shop, and wild bird seed shop (separate stores)once per week. That’s…
  • As long as you are eating less calories than your body burns, you will lose weight. Protein is necessary for good nutrition.
  • It’s all about choices.
  • I guess this is directed at me. It is not my intention to lecture anyone. Or imply that vaxxed people are being targeted in my comments. They aren't. MOST got vaccinated? So, I'm not entitled to post because it doesn't apply to vaccinated persons? Clearly, there are individuals that are reading this thread that are NOT…
  • Whatever reason you have for not getting vaxxed, unvaxxed people are spreading covid at alarming rates. Seriously ill covid patients, requiring hospitalization, are dying. Those of you that refuse to get vaccinated should read about what these patients go through. It's very unpleasant. Do you want to take the risk, for…
  • Sorry for being redundant. Last night on our local news (Minnesota, TC's metro) health care workers from all over our state were appealing to the unvaccinated to get vaccinated. One female doctor was crying and pleading. They are worn out. Just doing what I can on the off chance someone that is unvaccinated may see this…
  • Every one of you that refuse to get vaccinated are putting others at risk, and the overwhelming majority that are being hospitalized now for covid, are unvaccinated, putting a strain on hospitals and health care professionals. Just get vaccinated. That's the way the pandemic is going to become manageable. The surge in the…
  • I agree for the most part. The exception is beer cheese soup. I experimented with many types of cheese and over time, I found that Velveeta makes the creamiest, best, beer cheese soup. I never order a fast food cheeseburger, because of the cheese they use. To avoid excessive calories and still have a melted cheese…
  • Re: the disagrees on MFP. I’ve been on here (two different names) for 10 years this February. Developing a thick skin really helps, with any forums on the internet. I’m pretty sure some would disagree, with the statement, “The sky is blue on a clear day”. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Cilantro, we all love it in this family! No soap genes here.…
  • Denying myself any food, doesn’t fit into my long term plans for losing, and maintaining, a healthy weight. All foods in moderation, and monitoring my weight trends regularly are key for me and long term success.
  • Thanks! I appreciate your commments❤️ My husband has cancer. He also had blood clots in his knee area and was in intensive care for 5 days at the end of May. He had none of the risks for blood clots and no family history. At the time, the hematologist asked him if he had gotten the covid vaccine, but it was never…
  • I had morning sickness (all day) for the first trimester. Bottom line, you’re growing a human being. You want both your baby, and yourself to be healthy. You’ll gain weight. Don’t stress over these few months. Listen to what your health care professionals tell you. Congratulations and best wishes for a healthy, happy…
  • I heard on the news that they may recommend a 4th shot post 6 months the 3rd shot, for immunocompromised people (my husband is in this category). We are a little over post 6 months our 2nd, and have not had our 3rd. Both over 65, and husband has health issues. My husband has an appointment with his primary 11/8. We were…
  • I’m kind of pumpkin spiced out, but I really like them too! I like them better than the chocolate ones. I haven’t touched anything pumpkin spice (besides these cupcakes) this year, but am anxious for Thanksgiving, and a piece of pumpkin pie with real whipped cream.
  • I make big batches of steel cut oats, and freeze in individual portions. Right now it’s a diced apple, cinnamon, chopped walnuts with a splash of skim milk. No added sodium or sugars that come in the convenient packets. Another favorite is a soft boiled egg on a toasted light English muffin.
  • I’m not positive, but from what we were told by supplemental health insurance agent, most vaccines are covered by Medicare part D, and certain vaccines are always covered by part B. My husband just retired 9/30/21, so we haven’t used it yet, but may be useful for you to check out, if that would affect your decision.
  • I’ve noticed, for us, it’s been cheaper, especially because of eliminating junk food, shopping sales, buying bulk items, and very little eating out. However, during covid, I’ve noticed an increase in costs for food, overall. Shortages are starting to show up again, because of shipping issues in the US, which will drive up…
  • I did not realize clinics/doctors ignore patients concerns in the UK. I’m sorry to hear that. We’re talking about a very, potentially, serious health problem, which can be diagnosed quickly, and easily. Six weeks is not acceptable anywhere, and wouldn’t happen here. Advocating for yourself, and your health, should be your…
  • I never see lamb at $5-6/lb. it’s never on sale. I’d stock up if it was. It’s always at least $9.99/lb for ground lamb. Forget chops or leg. I never buy it, but would at that price.
  • Thanks! Probably just a policy here.
  • That’s interesting. I’ve always been swiped by a swab of something pre-vaccine. What are they using? I’ve always assumed it was an alcohol swab.
  • I share a similar view as yours. Buying bulk, meal prepping, sticking to portion sizes all bring down overall costs. If someone doesn’t know how to cook, there are a lot of recipe sites and videos available on the internet. If you really want to save money, teach yourself to cook. It’s not hard.
  • Cheating, to me, implies doing something bad/wrong. I just eat and log everything I eat and drink and work it into my calories for the day. Do I go over? Of course I do at times. The big difference now is not letting it continue. Back at it the next meal/snack. You can share a meal of pizza with your family without…
