  • I am so heartbroken today that I cannot stop crying, and I want to eat cake and ice cream until I pass out ... but alas, there is none of either in the house and I don't trust myself to drive to the store to get some ... so I'm sharing my pain with all the MFP posters on this thread because you are my friends. I was in the…
  • Does anyone have a Magic Bullet ... or a Ninja ,,, a blender would also work ... I made the most wonderful fruit slush/loose sorbet type dessert tonight that I just had to share.

  • Monday check-in So ... I stayed the same in weight this week. No loss, no gain ... glad that I'm holding my own with the foods I've selected to eat.

  • Welcome back @Robin/Ellen, so glad you vacation break was a happy one. I've quoted from your post for something that doesn't work for me ... hoped you might have some insight. My preferences do say to post to my newsfeed when I post a reply on the message boards, but it doesn't work. The only posts I see on my newsfeed are…
  • Monday Check-in Back down a couple this week ... blood glucose was very good this morning also. This past week I tried eating supper like a pauper by switching my dinner salad to supper and eating my more dense carbs earlier in the day. Gonna keep that up this week also to see how that works. Have a good week everyone, and…
  • Just read something from MyFittnessPal "Hello Healthy" that I wanted to share with you ... it's about having a 'fallout plan" ... a good read indeed. https://blog.myfitnesspal.com/the-1-thing-everyone-needs-to-lose-weight-successfully/?utm_source=mfp&utm_medium=Facebook

Congratulations!!! @tracy(tlh) -- georgous cake! love that shade of lilac. thanks @Karen(Skinny) -- I always feel bad when I pop in and report but don't do personals, your comment made me feel better.

  • Hello everyone, hope your week went by well with you meeting any goals you set. I've been reading through every day to keep up but have been limiting my time on the computer so haven't made comments. Today at my house the water department will be shutting off our water supply for the day to do some water line work on my…
  • something from Self magazine I got in my mailbox today ... http://www.self.com/fitness/2015/06/the-one-thing-trainers-wish-youd-stop-doing/?mbid=nl_061715_Daily&CNDID=20084595&spMailingID=7834352&spUserID=MjcxNTMyMDI3NTIS1&spJobID=702191502&spReportId=NzAyMTkxNTAyS0
  • Wednesday Wish ... I was wishing since Monday that the scale lied that day and this morning it told me it had. It was down 6 pounds. Still not where it was in February, but at least not where it was last year. Follow-through Niki
  • It used to be lard that was used, back in the really old days before hyrdrogenated oil came into being via the miracle of food science and food manufacturers. Well, for good baking and frying it's either saturated fat or hydrogenated oils ... Crisco was supposed to be better than lard and everyone used it all the time ...…
  • Just a bit of clarification on that star to bookmark the thread you want to follow ... it is the star next to the thread name and not the one at the very top of the page, where the three symbols are located next to one another. When you click on the star in the group of 'bell, star, sun' at the top of the page, it will…
  • I ate a quarter of a watermelon ... that was about 12-inch in diameter... with a couple of slices of Arnold Whole Wheat bread n butter as a snack tonight. Don't know how many cups or ounces that was of the watermelon ... but I cut the thing into 1 -1/2 inch squares right down and figure the 4 center ones were about 1 cup…
  • Monday Check in .... my scale must be broken. It thinks I gained 7 pounds this week. However, since it's check-in day, I have to take it as it stands. Guess I need to put more action behind my mantra. Follow-Through Niki No @Skinny/Karen, I did not get my pizza fix yet ... need to buy some missing ingredients on my next…
  • @Kelley, thanks for that pizza recipe idea. The only ingredient not in my pantry or fridge right now is the Italian Seasoned Flat-Out Bread. Gonna have to look at the supermarket for that and add it to my breads. @Kaye ... nice profile pic of you and hubby at your wedding. Isn't it amazing how fast the years have passed!…
  • Welcome ... this is an open thread, so please come back and post. @skinny-K ... it's great that school is finally coming to an end for this year and you can have some time away from all that grading of papers you do so much of during the year. It IS very sad about your friend. She has stopped to smell the roses and is…
  • Just make certain that enery drink is not loaded with cafeine ... which you don't need. Perhaps one of the trainers at the gym can give you insight into energy drinks for your workout ... and they might also suggest your do your weight lfting first, then your cardio type execise after. Exceuse me for butting in, but that's…
  • monday Check in ... My ticker is down 0.8 pounds this morning ...10 pounds to go to get back to my weight on Feb 6 ... I know I can do this. Have a good week everyone.

  • Heard an interesting radio broadcast on America's Test Kitchen Radio ... they interviewed a doctor (Wang?) who wrote a book titled something like "Food and Your Brain". Excuse the incorrectness of my title and doctor name because I didn't write it down and my memory is more faulty all the time ... Anyway .... What he said…
  • Thursday Truth ... it came to last night as a random 'ah-ha' moment ... I haven't been trying to lose weight at all anymore ... just eating pretty much whatever I want that's handy and whenever I get the urge to do so ... so sometimes it's not for many, many hours in between meals and other time's it's in about 2-3 after…
  • @annr ... sorry about the block-up, know how that feels. Kah's suggestion of Miralax is a good one ... even the vet suggests it for my pets if needed. One other suggestion on what could have helped trigger it ... the meat you ate. I know for me beef is a rare indulgence and then in moderation as it is a protein that tends…
  • Morning folks ... Monday check in for me ... Follow-through --- Niki do it now! Welcome new posters ... I can hear the desperation, destitution, fearful hopefulness, resolution, determination and fear of failure in your posts. Believe me ... we on the thread, and all weight-loss goalies have felt what you feel right now.…
  • Woo-Pee-Ya-Yay ... I'm so glad @mountmary84 is back! Missed you!! Really Barb, Thursday Truth be told ... I have been right here, and I still also have gained that same 10# that you did. Like you, I'm getting back on track again. For me, I want to make a trip to Missouri to visit my son and his family in late August and…
  • Monday Check-in Back down this week, but still over the lowest I'd achieved back before I hit the slippery-slope in March. Yesterday would have been a perfect food day except that I got off-track at supper. I picked up a couple of sliced of pizza on my way home from my sis visit. That wouldn't have been bad except we had…
  • Sunday Share ... good morning everyone. I've been hovering but haven't posted for a while. Truth be told, I've been eating in my old patterns ... not really thinking much about portion sizes or food contents, eating at will, indulging in food's I've long refrained from. The body and the scale tell me it's time to stop and…
