  • Sunday Share ... this is the "old" niki user posting cause @Nikion901 is still having computer issues ... The new hard drive got installed on the computer and I've spent the last 3 days installing applications, correcting settings, and restoring the most needed data. Some apps work, others don't. One that doesn't is my…
  • 138 this morning.
  • Oh ho ... I logged in under my old profile-id to retrieve some data for my stats and couldn't help but pop back in here to the community page ... there were 50 pages between now and the last time I signed on as NK1112 back in September. I'm thinking I need to focus on ... oops, a senior-moment took the thought and blew it…
  • 145 today, but it was 107 when I checked before goint to bed last night ... why the 38 point increase when I hadn't eaten anything since supper?
  • Monday Check-in ... oh-oh up again and I know it's the sodium in recent foods and not taking a diuretic ... however it is discouraging that I'm not dropping enough to overcome that ... after all, 3-4 pounds of water weight is a norm for me. On a positive note ... I accomplished 2 of my 3 goals that I set on Friday. Guess…
  • Did you ever see that kitchen-hack about microwaving corn on the cob in it's husks? Well .... let me tell you .... it Works! ... when you pull the husks off, all the silks come off too and you are left with a perfectly clean and tasty ear of corn. Friday Fitness ... My plans for fitness today are to put everything out of…
  • Yes that happens ... for a variety of reasons. For myself, I can actually gain that much in a single day, depending on what I ate ... if it had a lot of sodium in it especially. Thursday Truth ... I had a regular doctor's appointment yesterday and weighed in less on his scale, fully clothed, than I did on Monday check-in…
  • Monday check-in ... doing that yo-yo thing again. gotta learn to stay away from restaurant meals.
  • Just doing the math ... if you have 120 days to lose 47 pounds, you need to use up an additional 164,500 calories over what you 'need' with no slow up in your metabolism ... which comes out to an additional expenditure/cut of just over 1370 calories every day. ... which is too aggressive to do on your own. ... and your…
  • @Morgori ... this is an interesting coincidence ... I didn't know it was National Financial Awareness Day until I just now read your post ... and guess what I was up to most of the day today ... alligning my Financial fitness! Have a great and healthy weekend everyone. I'm looking forward to Check-in Monday. Follow-through
  • @tiffanymariearpaio ... never mind the nay sayers who are dumping on your experience because it's not something that they have 1) done, 2) do, 3) think they know better. Not knowing how active you are, or how you calculate calories ... I will focus on what I have personally experienced about this topic. ... ...If I cut too…
  • Monday (tuesday this week) check - in , down 1 pound from the last weeks in a row. :D
  • Monday check-in ... forgot to weigh myself this moning as I was rushing to get to an appointment ... and now I've already eaten so the weight won't be 'true' anyways .. will check in on Tuesday morning instead this week. Something came into my email from the Mayo Clinic that I thought would be good to share ... reprinted…
  • @RobinsEgg ...I didn't see your profile picture with your thread post and so I checked your profile and see you put in a new pix ... and wanted to say that vacations must agree with you 100% because you look wonderful!. Nice pix here of Estes Park. Like Cblue, I need to put that on my bucket list as well. @skinnyjeanzbound…
  • Thursday - Truth (got anything you need to fess up to or get off your chest?) Well, I have to fess up that even though I know what it does to me, I still once in a while eat food that I know will set off a higher calorie day than I allow myself. ... yep, refined carbs and sugary starches. Last evening there was a social…
  • Hi all ... Monday Check-in I dropped 2 pounds earlier in July and have maintained that loss through this mornings weigh-in. Since my calorie intake as at my resting BMR, I know that the thing I need to do to drop more is to be more active. The July goals had a mixed-bag result ... 80 ounces of water a day ...I get a "A" in…
  • Oh drats, and double drats ... I wrote a really terrific grandma talking at you type of message to you @colleen_mairead_xo and then dropped the entire note, must have been that good angel on my shoulder who made me lose the scold I was giving you about feeling like everyone is looking at you .... most likely they are not…
  • Welcome to this thread Sunflower. I hope we supply the kind of support you are looking for. I can relate to your description of having low self esteem because of your perceived inability to lose the over-weight. Probably every person who shares on this thread has felt the same at some point or other. I won't go into all…
  • Thursday - Truth (got anything you need to fess up to or get off your chest?) I got a real shocker this morning ... a younger woman who started working in my department right out of college back in about 1982 died unexepectdetly yesterday. At least it was unexpected for those who knew her at work. But my niece, who has…
  • One of my favorite afternoon snacks is 1/4 of an avocado on Wasa rye crisps ... but have been avoiding eating that because the other 3/4 would turn ugly by the next time i wanted some (like the next day) ... then I saw this tip on America's Test Kitchen ... and IT WORKS! Now I can safely buy that very expensive…
  • I add it to my morning porridge to boost the protein in the breakfast. Also add it to smoothies to help thicken the result as well as give a boost to fiber and protein.

  • Hi All ... Sunday Share ... Hope your Sunday has been a good one for everbody. Mine has been a warm one but not nearly as warm as other places. Actually, I've been amazed at how comfortable the weather has been for me this year. For the new folks who are finding this thread, I'd like to say welcome and stop back often.…
  • For me, clean eating means less processed, packaged, convenience, and restaurant foods and more home-cooked meals. It's also about using the best quality ingredients I can find, afford.
  • Here are a few ... I usually keep fruit in the freezer for my smoothies so I don't need to use ice. If it calls for water, it's usually really cold water from the fridge, not the tap. Give one or two a try. Hope you like them. Oatmeal Smoothie (serves 2-4) 1 cup ice 1/2 cup frozen raspberries (or any other frozen berry of…

  • Buckwheat ... I love Buckwheat and it cooks up into a really nice side when you toast them in a pan, add finely mince/dice carrot, celery, onion, garlic and saute them a few minutes, then add broth or water, cover and cook on low heat until the liquid is absorbed and the buckwheat groats are tender. Yumm! PS -- add spice…
  • Monday check-in I have a long way to go ... remembering that it's all about just one bite at a time. Also remembering how much I like the 'empty but not hungry' feeling when I'm not bloated, LOL, I feel 'light as a feather' even though my scale reminds me that I am really a boulder firmly rooted to the ground. July goals…
