    Hi Tweety!

    I had it again last nite

    Well, another bra notch down - haven't been able to do that for some time. Also not so hard to bend over (snickering - never thought I would get THAT bad!). Little rolls are getting smaller (don't notice the bigger ones getting smaller tho.. )

    I am now ready to get the weight off and keep it off. I will "weigh in" every Friday, good or bad, starting this Friday! I am just watching my intake and kicking up the output. Nothing fancy or secret, just hard work and the will to live a healthy life.
    Hi Jay and welcome! All this energy and motivation sure does help me so everybody keep it up

    I'm doing the whole check the color of your pee ..

    ... Oh yea tomorrow me and my boyfriend (oops my boyfriend and I just in case Mom's reading LOL) are going to a boxing club for a 90 minute boxing workout...
    Hi cherish, you mean to check the state of your hydration you are checking the color of your urine? Guess it makes sense. I really could use more fluid, myself.

    Enjoy the boxing, cool! Come back w/ all of your teeth, tho! heh heh

    LOL yea I know. When I was in the Army all the latrines (bathrooms) had hydration charts with like 5 stages of urine color so you could check your hydration by the color of your pee. The darker it was, like amber the more water you needed and if it was very light colored or clear you did not need to intake anymore. If your taking medicine though that will make your urine look dark no matter what then I guess you could tell by the frequency of your pee (unless you got something wrong with ya).

    So it's been 2 weeks and I have drank nothing but water and sugar free hot chocolate. LOL I actually enjoy having no juice. I was a juice addict, drank soda only if it was in an alcoholic drink cause I actually hate pop. I'm doing the whole check the color of your pee, and I like that I'm winning this. I think I'm getting weird people, I see light colored pee and I smile. Whats wrong with me! I think I'm going kookoo .
    An over-interest in ANY body secretions is just a healthy sign of being a nurse, LOL.

    Work is good; I've been better at eating better at night. I avoid lunch during the days I work at night (mostly because I'm sleeping then) and I've been packing in a lunch and bringing an assortment of snacks (peanut butter crackers, granola bars, presliced fruit) so that I've got a choice. I know those aren't perfect, but they're better than anything in the vending machines or at the cafeteria grill. Took a good long walk the other day, but I've been having trouble making it to the gym lately. Dumb because I feel so much better when I make the effort--but my gym does not offer babysitting (my old one did and I loved it) and I hate to take a couple of hours out after school when my bigger ones are home. I'll think of something...

    Hi Jay, I'm glad you decided to join the thread, I hope that you stick around and share.

    Keep up the good work Zoe!

    Cherish, have fun with the boxing class, that should be a definate workout if it's 90 minutes.

    I've used fitday in the past and they are pretty good. I eat such odd foods like seitan, tempeh and seaweed soup it never has what I eat on there. LOL

    I went to the gym and had a nice workout today and have eaten lightly.

    Mmmm...tempeh is really good grilled.

    I have been lazy today- no stairs or walking today. My calories are in check, though.

    Our dietician gave me a bunch of information today- she's awesome. I'm lucky- she's a great cheerleader.

    Hope everyone has a great day today! Maybe I'll walk after dinner, and take the kiddos with me- they love that.

    I've grilled tempeh before. Broiled is good too.

    Taking an off day day from exercise. Ate reasonably well today. Not low cal though, but healthy.

    Zoe.......Howdy, I figured out I had diabetes because of neuropathy in my feet........took me a week of two before I figured out why my feet were burning. The dieting is harder, because it is a little more than just cutting back or watching what I eat.....I am definately a carb lover and I am not happy with some of the changes I am having to make. I did however lose 10 lbs in the first three weeks.
    How have you been doing?
    It is so good to be back.

    I'm at a total loss of 8 pounds for 2 weeks. Yay! Portion control has gotten much easier now. Now, if I can just get off my butt and exercise, all will be well.

    Oh- don't get the black bean burger at Chili's. It has 325 cals, 6 gr fat, but 13 gr fiber= 6 points. I had half of one for lunch yesterday, thinking I was being good. I could've had half a cheeseburger for that LOL. It didn't even taste good.
