  • I am going to try and make it easy on myself so maybe I can do it. For breakfasts I will do hardboiled eggs and some sort of carb. Either fruit, yogurt, english muffins, or mini bagels. For lunches I will do either frozen meals (with extra steamed veggies) or salads. Both with a side of fruit. For dinners I will follow the…
  • Yesterday: Breakfast: 2 hardboiled eggs, english muffin with light butter and strawberry preserves Lunch: Dole Sunflower Crunch Chopped Salad, honeydew, and strawberries (forgot how much I loved this salad) Dinner: Hibachi bowl with plain rice, chicken, shrimp, carrots, and mushrooms topped with yum yum sauce Dessert:…
  • Yesterday Bunnies: None at Breakfast Lunch: Salad with chopped kale, cabbage, carrots, and other veggies I can't remember (it's early). 🐰🐰🐰🐰 plus a side of honeydew and strawberries 🐰🐰 (Very bunny lunch) Dinner: Hibachi with plain rice, carrots, mushrooms, onions, chicken, and shrimp 🐰🐰🐰 So total bunnies 🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰 (9). One…
  • I would love to get more into doing it this way, even just a couple weeks at a time. The getting started is the hard part. By the time the weekend comes around, I have so much to do and I am so tired. And I have no real help cause it's me and the cats. Sorry... I am just feeling really frustrated about it right now.
  • I am struggling with meal ideas. It's like nothing sounds good or I am just too tired to care. I used to love meal planning and cooking. Now it feels like a chore. One thing I am liking is doing bowls. This week (today actually) I am making hibachi chicken and shrimp bowls. The base will be plain rice and I will top it…
  • Yesterday: Breakfast: 2 hardboiled eggs, english muffin with light butter and strawberry preserves Lunch: French Onion soup, bowl of honeydew melon and strawberries Dinner: Tilapia, roasted asparagus, side salad with Italian dressing Dessert: 2 mini ice cream sandwiches, bubble tea Movement: 3 walks outside totaling about…
  • I made whole wheat spaghetti with sauce last night... but the sauce had ground beef, diced zucchini, and diced mushrooms in it. So I call it a win. This morning though I am not feeling great. Really fatigued. Sipping on a Sprite and nibbling on Cheez Its because my stomach doesn't like me. So not a healthy breakfast, but…
  • I am just NE of Indianapolis. Farmers Market starts Saturday actually, but it's not corn season quite yet. So will have to wait on that a bit longer. I love the weekly market. I go every Saturday if I am able to do so. The produce and meats are just amazing and I have my favorite farmers. The blackberries from the…
  • Summer sweet corn here in Indiana is like a religion. It is so so good. I have it at least once a week when the corn stall at the farmer's market is there. Just amazing. I roast it in the oven in the husk at 350 for about 45 minutes. A little butter... a little salt...
  • While I enjoy getting holiday pay for federal and state holidays, I found I don't enjoy having a random day off during the week that is not a Monday or Friday. We were off yesterday for Primary Elections so today feels like a second Monday. Ugh. Really struggling with energy. Plus, it is public service employee…

  • Connie... take care of yourself dear. You and your family has been through so much of late! Bella... I know how you feel. It seems like one "cheat" (I actually hate that word but it is early on a Friday and I have not woken up fully yet) leads to another... and to another... and to another. It is not something that I have…
  • Thank you everyone for the positive thoughts and words. I have been grappling with the new diagnosis. Like, it makes 100% sense especially after doing more research. I just... I don't know... it's like I am scared of what it means. I know that doesn't make much sense, but I don't do well with the "unknown" so it is causing…
  • How do you make your sauce for this? I have not found one I like yet.
  • First off Bella, I am so so sorry you are dealing with that. I can't even imagine the stress that your MIL is causing you and your family. It is easy for me to say that maybe you do need to just let her fail. I understand it will be hard, but she is an adult and you can not risk your own safety and comfort to keep bailing…
  • The clothes will be donated. I do have one bag of stuff that is going to be tossed but that is underwear or things that are stained. I still have to go through my winter clothes so may do that tonight if I have the energy or maybe this weekend. I would LIKE to do it tonight so I can take the clothes this weekend to donate…
  • So... I ended up going shopping and had an amazing NSV. I was at Old Navy and trying on dresses. Just at the start of the year I was at a 3x (they have normal sizes XS to XXL and then plus sizes 2X to like 4X). Today I tried on a dress at a 3X and it was WAY too big! The 2X was still too big! The XXL fit great though. I…
  • Ended up taking a sick day today so I can just take care of myself. No additional noise last night. I know they got the warning because I saw it delivered. So hopefully that handles that. But one night of my insomnia being bad, then a night of panic attacks, then a full day of high anxiety, PLUS a headache that just will…
  • Anyone here have panic attacks? I am dealing with the "hangover" after having a panic attack last night. New neighbors had their music blaring. Like, it sounding as if the music was in my apartment. I went over to try and talk to them and they agreed to turn it down. Only their definition of "turning it down" was to make…
  • I have had to throw away food because I have cut myself and didn't notice until I saw the blood on the cutting board... then on the food I had been cutting. It wasn't something I could just rinse off so in the trash it went. I slept well last night thankfully, though I am still really tired. One night of barely sleeping…
  • Today is gonna be a struggle bus day I think. Insomnia really hit hard last night. I am currently going on about 3 hours of sleep at the most, but it was broken up between 9pm and 6:50am. On top of that my body aches, my head hurts, and I just don't feel well. I want to just go back to bed so bad but I can't. I am the only…
  • So yesterday... Breakfast: Apple 🐰🐰 (it was a big apple) Lunch: Mini cucumber, mini peppers, and snap peas 🐰🐰 (going by Laurie's numbers), slaw 🐰 Dinner: Same as the night before 🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰 So... 🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰 bunnies? 10 bun buns...
  • I don't really weigh my bunnies... just kinda throw it all in until it looks good. Bunnies for yesterday (cause I am dumb and have no idea how to do the bunny emoji). Breakfast: 0 bunnies (I skipped totally due to too much work) Lunch: Hashbrown potatoes (at least 1/2 a bunny because potatoes are really nutritious), raw…
  • I am slowly getting through my overly stuffed freezer. Once I do so, I plan on filling it with more things that I have pre prepped like you do Alex. Cause those night where I am exhausted or am hurting it can be really hard to stay on track.
  • Last night was roasted cabbage, potatoes, and onions with some turkey kielbasa. I was actually pleasantly surprised with the kielbasa. Did it taste the same as the normal beef stuff? No, but it was perfectly good in its own right. Tonight will be hibachi shrimp bowls with zucchini, onions, and mushrooms. Was supposed to…
  • Bella, you look wonderful! I can only hope to get to that point. Personally, I would maybe take a maintenance break but it all depends on how you are feeling mentally. If you have any sort of diet fatigue, then a break may do you good. It would also help you get used to what it will take to maintain that loss. If you get…
  • Went grocery shopping yesterday morning. Aldi had whole sections that were just empty. Almost no eggs, no potatoes or onions, none of their snack packs or fruit snacks. Whole areas of shelving was just empty. No idea if it was truck issues, other supply problems, or not enough staff to stock the shelves, but it wasn't even…
  • So last night got crazy... I was sitting on my sofa and happened to look outside to see some kids (early to mid teens I would say), just kinda hanging out in front of my building. I have seen this group around before so did not think much of it, until 2 of the kids split off from the rest and cut between a couple cars.…
  • I have had a rough week so been kinda hiding away in my self pity. Been eating horrible and the hamsters have been evil little buggers of late. I know when I weigh this weekend that the number will have gone in the wrong direction. Trying to get my brain back to where it was before this week so I can continue on the weight…
  • I see Alex on the home page as we are friends. So she is still trucking along! I have found that I am eating less grains in general because they cost points. I would rather fill up on veggies, chicken, and fish for 0 points (note: I still watch portion sizes with the proteins because of calories... same with fruit). But I…
  • See, to me there is no negative association with Ice Cream because I don't think of food as good or bad. Or, at least I am trying not to. That sort of thinking is the #1 way for me to trigger my food anxiety. As for the bottom 2 pictures I wouldn't choose one over the other. Give me that burger with the corn on the cob and…
