I wasn't as good as I "could" have been yesterday. It wasn't THAT bad though.

Belly, gotta give it up to you, lady. . So happy to see you back!

So glad I don't live up north. . Man y'all are getting hammered!

Tami? where you at, girl? Haven't heard from you in a minute!

Jenny, I'd probably still eat the styrofoam, simply because it was chocolate covered Can you say, CHOCOHOLIC??

I've got to try to get a few pounds down though. . seriously. It's a tough time! PLUS, it's dark outside, PLUS it's cold blah blah blah . . I think I need some Vitamin D! Back to the tanning bed I go!

Happy hump day!

Terri you certainly did a fab job of getting down to the twenties. Don't worry wily Mr. Mojo is going down!

Just hang firm. Get through the holidays. Enjoy. No big whoop.

I didn't weigh in today.

One step forward and two steps back.

Met a friend for dinner last night at a nice restaurant. Had to wait for her for a long time so sat at the bar and had a glass of wine. Meal was low carb but huge. Afterwards craving chocolate and went looking for a single piece of an 85% super dark chocolate bar which they didnt have, so I got TWO candy bars instead.

Wine = cheating for me everything single time. I guess it is a trigger for me. I have another party tomorrow night where I was thinking of allowing myself a glass of wine but now I know there is just no way I can do it. Wasn't going to weigh or report in today, but I'm glad I did. I know it will help me stay on plan today.

I would really like to start the new year in the 220s. Appt with podiatrist tomorrow for follow up on broken foot. Hope to get back to walking for exercise soon.

12/14...249.0...


Got my microwave yesterday. One of the advantages of apartment living. The complex replaces their stuff when they break down.

Terri...Vitamin D DOES help. It's much safer to take it in pill form though. Maybe my homemade hot chocolate recipe would help with your chocoholic tendencies. I have a cup every day. Here's how I make it.

LC Hot Chocolate
Heat 6-8 oz. of water to almost boiling in the microwave.
Add a heaping tsp (a regular silverware tsp) of Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder
Add a splash of SF syrup. ( I love DaVinci's syrups) The Caramel is great in this.
Stir...
Add a splash of HWC
Stir again....Enjoy


Kit...Sometimes I think it's even more important to check in when we fall down. Helps keep us accountable and gives us the courage to get back up.

Hang in there, everyone. The holidays will be over soon. That should help us all.

Terri - you're right of course, you can eat chocolate covered anything, even if you just have to lick the chocolate off. After my great brag yesterday. More items came in the door. And you know a girl can just resist so much!!!! This office smells like chocolate. My favorite smell in the whole wide world. Its just too much. I really was not prepared for this. Its ridiculous. I tried, really tried turning that chocolate covered caramel into baby poop. It didn't work. I ate it and because I was trying to put that thought in my brain, it was slightly nauseating.

So Judy you are right, its important to check in even when you've gone off. I was afraid to weigh this morning. Maybe tomorrow. The chocolates are still here there are choices to make continuously throughout the whole day. I wonder if I can gain weight just from the constant smell of chocolate? I bet I can.

Kit, just laughing at your post. Don't leave a girl alone waiting at a bar with nothing to do but drink and flirt with the bartender. lol And the two? candy bars. I really was laughing out loud. Now don't think (everyone out there who just reads this stuff) that I am encouraging at all. I'm just relating like crazy.

Belly - I know I've seen your picture on here, but want you to know you will forever be the girl in the picture below your name. weird huh? And Spride is busy typing all the time and I would know Kit's feet anywhere. lol I've got to figure out one of these days how to put a picture up. And. what was Yoda's line about I will do? I need to find it and have that as my salutation line.

Hang tough today everyone. I just noticed the chocolate covered caramels are gone. Thank goodness!!!!!!

Life is stressful for me these days and I'm too stressed to weigh. It's taken a lot of will power to not drown my stress in food. I did have a small diet coke but quite frankly it's a lot better than what I could have had.

Groovy, I feel your pain. I wrote in my journal this morning: "Things I need to get done". . The list was too long. There are only a few things on the list that are actually "Christmas" related, but the fact that Christmas is only 10 days away is overwhelming. And it's cold and dark outside.

Belly, I'm gonna hang in there. Just get through this season!

Chocolate

Happy Thursday!

Sorry that I have been MIA......just a tad depressed....about the darn insulin...but my numbers have been better...Dec. is always sad for me ...miss my sons and grandbabies...and my parents have both passed and Mama's birthday is Dec 2nd and Dad's is Christmas Eve..so always a sad month for me.

So have been eating after 7pm....a big no-no for me...and more carbs than I should have ...hence the weight gain...so trying to get my mind set right again..

But on the plus side have been doing my exercise every day....

Today 45 min on nustep...25 min in pool....1 hr. W/A class...guess my exercising has become a good habit..

Looks like things are going well for everyone.....Dec. can be a killer for eating clean....am going to try better

Everyone have a great day...love ya all

It's 10 degrees below zero outside right now. I'm not weighing today, although I've been maintaining my recent loss.

I just hope to eat as good as possible today. I don't feel hungry at all--that's encouraging at least.

Sigh!
On Thursday we get together for lunch. Now I have trained these people - do not include me on carby lunches. It's cold here. So rather than walk to a restaurant we are going to order in. This means "pizza" You guessed it. And you know what that mean to us lo-carbers " the nasty salad" option!

----------------

Well, we have a new admin.(Lovely person.) She joked well we can order ice cream there is not any carbs in that. Yep! She said this and was serious. It is amazing how uninformed people are about carbohydrates.

(Mind you my co-workers ran away from the scene or offered no comments because they know better when it comes to me and my WOE.)

Then the poor thing suggested innocently "well they have wraps". I said still carbs.

I had to inform her that this was no joking matter way of eating limits carbs and certain types. If I consume them the way you do I told her "Seriously,I can die." : the look of horror on her face. I just wanted her to think about it seriously. It is not a joke. My WOE is just as serious as a gluten free, vegan HCLF plan. I had to explain to her that I need to eat this to maintain my health I suffered from high blood pressure. Diabetes run in my family. I eat this way because I have too. And I gain lots of weights of my body cannot support.

I just ended up ordering the proverbial salad with grilled chicken I may or may not eat it. I am not hungry. I had a high protein breakfast. I plan on having a nice pork chop lo carb dinner tonight.

BTW 214 lost an 1/2lb of the 1.5 lb I had gained.

Hi Everyone! I'm not weighing today. Not eating either. I think my body could use a little fast. I might have some chicken soup tonight. I've gotten this homemade chicken soup down pat. Course I do cheat a little. I begin with an already baked chicken so it does not take long but everything goes in. Second day its outstanding.

I'm now delivering the food that comes directly to me in the office to neighbors. Coworkers have had enough as well. People are saying things like, "I need a veggi tray" lol We sure do.

This is my last day of posting for awhile. We are off on a little mini vacation to visit family.

Hope everyone relaxes and enjoys this season, remembering the reason we are celebrating.

KitKat I love wine. BUT it turns straight to fat on me! I banned to the occasional sip on Friday nights. Otherwise, taking a cue from Terri, I switched to vodka and mixed with flavored vodka. It's more forgiving. I never been a vodka person. But here and there when I need a little drinkie poo. I do vodka. My body handles it better.

ParisFox Looks like you are holding in the forties. Yay!
Apt living has a down side too like when maintenance want to fix something but take the one time you are busy/house not up to par for visitors to come fix stuff For ex, I didn't make it end to 3am on LA flight they wanted to come in for routine stuff. This this post thanksgiving same thing late flight was resting. Then I told them I will call you guys later. Dag.

Terri Girl you are too much with that chocolate thing. Hold it together woman!

Pawleys14Take care of yourself. It will be alright. I know times are tough for you now. Here is some love for you

jennyr my avatar theme are the curvy glam girls from a time gone bye. Currently I am Eartha Kitt. Was Marilyn. One time Betty Boop. I went to LA LA land. I havea photo with me super imposed next to her putting our finger prints in a walk of fame block. I will put that up for a gag later. Let you guys get glimpse of my fab time in LA.

Rest of you keep hanging. Stop worrying about the Holidays. Enjoy! You are doing well. Go on indulge a little if you must. Just don't over do it. Personally, I think should stop "dieting" so "hard" around this time it is futile effort. There is a time and place for everything. Holidays are for settling back, enjoying the year, giving thanks, being with the family and friends. And, yes indulging a little. I said just "a little" don't get it twisted and start eating and drinking everything in site. You know better

Belly - I like your advice about the holidays. It is a shame that something meant to be a celebration and spiritual, ends up being so stressful and so hard on people - especially the moms trying to make it perfect for their families. I totally get it and I don't have kids and am stilled stressed about it. I am having our extended family party on the 26th and ending up with 24 people which is stressing me out. However I really don't want to give myself permission to indulge. If I do, I will definitely "get it twisted and start eating and drinking everything in site". If I didn't have that problem, I wouldn't weigh what I do.

Sending love and hugs to those of you feeling stress, depression and sadness. It will pass soon. Please try to enjoy it and not worry too much about pleasing everybody. We all deserve to enjoy it. If you're super stressed about Christmas, try to focus on the time after it will be all over. If it is New Years, it will be a fresh start, new beginnings and a period of calm for a while. Imagine that time and it will be here before you know it.

Tonight is another holiday party where I'm having dinner that somebody else is preparing and there will be lots of chocolate laying around, wine and dessert. My plan is to eat around the carbs in the entree if possible and if not, to just eat a little bit - but absolutely NO candy, NO wine and NO dessert. Wish me luck! And I'll send luck to those of you struggling with lots of junk food in your offices. I am lucky in that I work from home so the only junk that comes in is from DH and I'm not crazy about the type of junk food he likes.

We can do this people!

Diana - Good job on your continued exercise! Try not to be too upset about the insulin. It is what it is and it is meant to help you, so maybe try to look at it from a different perspective. And I think I've read there is hope and you may not always need it, right?

I'm sorry you are missing your parents. DH and I have lost both of our parents too (and both of our only sisters) and my father in law's birthday is the 26th. I know they wouldn't want us to be sad at this time, so let's think about the good times and how lucky we were to have had them in our lives.

How many sons do you have and how far away are they? When will you see them next? Looks like they have provided you with some adorable little ones.

I'm sounding like a Pollyana and not sure if that is helpful to you at all or just annoying, but I just wanted to send some personal encouragement your way.

Happy Thursday all!

Sorry I've been MIA, I've been busy working and baking, yep baking. I wasn't going to this year but then I wanted to for my sons, my youngest moved out this summer and my oldest was the previous summer so I wanted to bake for them. I know it's not good for them either. I also am giving my goodies to my neighbors, taking a plate to my work and giving one to my DH for his work, so when all said and done there won't hardly be any temptations here. I also know starting the beginning of the year I will hit it hard again.

Diana I hear you about missing family, both of my parents are gone and boy do I miss them especially my mom. My DH made a comment about moving out of state one day and boy did I lose it, started crying telling him he can't move me away from my sons and so on. Well he was just teasing me and boy did he have to work to calm me down, that's what he gets. lol I was also making cookies that were my great grandmothers the other day and I was thinking of my favorite grandmother who passed awhile ago, a thought crossed my mind that instead of being sad to be happy of the time I did spend with her and all the great memory's of her that I have, I also have to work on this with my mom too.

Kat, Terry, Belly I agree with all of you on the wine boy does that go to my hips. So my go to is Crown and diet coke. I drink pop maybe once a month if that so I know it won't hurt me.

Bloodhound you've done great this month, keep it up it will be so worth it.

Groovygiirl you are still lower then the beginning of the month, that's a plus!

Terry try not to stress, life is wait to short for that. Focus on family and friends and enjoy the time of year. If you don't get everything done what does it hurt?

OMG you guys - my work has made me so angry today. I've gotten some things worked out so it is better but I'm still seething and trying to calm down. I so want to relax with a glass of wine tonight!

Friday!

Not that things will get easier over the weekend. I will be going back over to Mom's old apartment tomorrow to "hopefully" finish up & clean. It would mean the WORLD to get it done, but it's exhausting work!


Diana, I understand missing family. I miss my North Carolina family. My oldest Daughter (who was my best friend) and two of my grandsons! I won't get to see them again until March

So happy this week is almost over! I've been better than I could have been, but not as good as I should have been. . .

Have a great day, my lovelies!

Thanks Smiley! I hope to lose a few more by the end of the month, but we'll see. I don't feel tempted by all of the treats since I've been off sugar for about 3 weeks, but it will all depend on whether or not I exercise regularly. I did 3 miles at lunch yesterday. Yay!

Wow - I guess I really blew it. Last night's dinner was lasagna. I did not behave. I am an emotional eater and my emotions got the best of me. My only solace is that I know last month I had lots of trouble during the first half of the month but then I ended up losing 8 pounds over all. I'm hoping the same goes for the 2nd half of December.
