Everyone on this forum are sooo nice!

I have been reading and reading and reading! My firm conviction is to clear a path to what used to be my workout area and start back up. I broke my back and wrist and I have to start with the back exercises.

I am a FIRM believer in the BMO exercises. I love these exercises and Bill Phillips - Transformation exercises. My first goal is to eat right .... next - start after I get to the workout area - to do the back exercises and then start alternating between the BMO & Transformation exercises.

I revised my daily goals to include exercising daily! Here we go!

I am having such a hard time getting back on plan! I only planned 2 off days over Christmas and I'm STILL not back on track! I was doing so well; I guess I shouldn't have strayed. I've got to get all the junk food out of this house. And I know we are going out for NYE. This is such a rough time of year to diet! Is anyone else having a hard time right now?

Hey! Checking in. Sorry it has taken me so long. I've been very busy helping my daughter with her new baby and the 5 year old as well. My Hubby has been off since before Christmas and will be off until after the new year. As soon as he gets back on schedule with work I will feel like I can get back on track 100%. I know I shouldn't let him being home interfere but it does. I will work on that. Way to go Scoobee on the 10.5# loss!!! and Lauren I'm so glad you are both still here!

Let's stay accountable. I will go ahead and set up the 2015 Daily Chat. We can start meeting there on January 1. I need a clean slate LOL.

Hey everyone!! Still going strong...I know I will not be completely POP over Christmas Eve & Day with family but will jump back on plan the day after. So far, 2 weeks are completed and I'm down 10.5 lbs. I am definitely happy with that, even though I have not been perfect.

All our family will be gone tomorrow. We had our Big Christmas this weekend and I fell off the wagon majorly. I so afraid to weigh!
Scooby I hope I can have a miracle loss like you!

Lauren, The reason I probably have sleep apnea is because my neck is short and thick and any weight gain causes the throat to narrow. That's what my dr thinks anyway. I will be back on plan Tuesday. Tomorrow is too hard with family still here. I am trying to get rid of the leftovers and send it all home with them as a blessing :-).
I am actually SICK of the fattening foods and more than ready to get back on track losing again!
Our new grandson is doing great! I will try to post a team photo if I can figure it out lol.

Hugs!!!

emoticon Wonderful start! Keep on Keeping on!

How did the appointment go?

This program can be challenging! I am working at it a bit different this go around. I am trying to eat AS CLOSE to as possible unprocessed food. I am eating the portions as though I am already at my goal weight. I know the progress will be much slower - as long as it is PROGRESS! Stay tuned!

I'm still here lol!!!

I had lost 7 pounds the first week - mostly due to the fact I was really bloated from junk food! However I fell off the plan the last 2 days. :( I've been emotional eating because I am anxious and worried about my foot doctor appointment tomorrow (second opinion). Been pretty much sidelined for about a month; and have been using an exercise bike to get my fat burning cardio in; but even stopped that because of these issues.

Anyway, back on plan today; I'm sure no matter what else is going on - weight loss will sure help my feet!

Hope everyone is doing well!

154.5. Thanks for the encouragement. I ate one tiny bite of the prime rib, and about two cups of salad, black decaf coffee for dessert. That's it!!! I passed up a lot of amazing dishes but I feel so happy that I did. I just had my grapefruit and going to bed feeling like the day was a success as far as MT goes. We can all reach our goals. We will be so much closer by Jan 1st if we keep our eyes on the prize emoticon

Hi Leeanna - good luck at the party! It's hard to stay strong this time of year and I almost talked myself into delaying this program until the new year...but figured I'd do even more damage by then lol. Glad I didn't wait! Today is only my first week (day #6) but so far so good!

Checking in with my awesome team.
154.8 this morning. Tonight we have an Elder and Staff Christmas party at
Church. Say a little prayer for me to do the right thing. The right thing is usually the hard thing. I won't remember how the meal tasted tomorrow but I will remember what the scales show for it. Trying to stay steadfast. "IT WILL BE WORTH IT" ladies. Let's do this.

Hello Everyone
I am so sorry I have been gone for over two months. I wasn't keeping to the plan very well and have had several health issues POP up since regaining about 30 lbs I had lost on MT a few years ago. Now I am back at it again. I wish i could say it gets easier to start over but....
Anyway I am back for another go of it. Hello to all the new team members. I was so very excited to see fresh ones posting and Caroline back! Even see that Sharon posted after I left. I hope we can all be committed to coming here daily to post our progress. I am starting over at 155.2 today.

Today my meals were:
12:00 had breakfast of oatmeal, 1/2 banana and chicken
3:00 had snack of chicken, sweet potato, and some green beans
6:00 had dinner of chicken, potato and vegetable soup

I am not doing this 100% as you can see! but I will get better.

See everyone here tomorrow!

Looking forward to it too! The eating plan makes good sense; nothing gimmicky or anything. How can you go wrong with eating whole, unprocessed foods!? I can tell already it's important to have a clear set plan each day or life can sure get in the way lol. Eating every 2 1/2 to 3 hours presents a bit of a challenge - as does fitting in the exercise around it too. I have to keep an eye on the ole clock till I get the hang of this new routine. Tonight I will be trying out my day #2 sculpting moves - sure looks like a lot!! I am so ready for the challenge though!

Well Scoobees ! You me both! I couldn't find the manual last nite ... YET... but I was also looking at Amazon to get another set!

I truly believe in the philosophy of this program... we need to change our diets to become more "basic" not so processed and I LOVED the exercise program!

So Scoobees! We will achieve! Looking so forward to it!

Thanks! Actually I am 13 pounds heavier than my ticker shows; guess I should change that lol. I hope you find your manual! I still can't believe how much stuff came with this program! I used to watch the infomercial ages ago but never bought it because it seemed like so much money. Then a couple weeks ago I happened to run across this on an online Goodwill auction - so I bid a few times and got it!

Hello all:

Just completed the 6 day makeover and lost 8 lbs. Lost some around the waist! Feeling great!

Started the 6 week program today. Want to loose 40 lbs. overall.

It's helpful to log in Sparkpeople to keep track.

Looking for encouragement to keep going. Had started martial arts, but just found out I may have an achilles avulsion (bad news), so have to quit that for awhile. Will find out soon what the remedy is, but was told I need to keep the ankle/leg immobile for probably a month. This will keep me motivated to stay on the plan.

Onward and upward!

I'm exhausted too! I'm tracking regularly and so far losing (approx) a half inch a week! I have no idea if that is considered "normal" but ...I'll take it! LOL! The weigh-in is on the 10th (Friday) so I do know I've lost some pounds (I just love that tape measure). I'll post the NEW weight as soon as I return home from the doctor; probably will be running to the computer!

It seems that there isn't too much of a regular "presence" here but hopefully the team will keep going. There isn't a 6WKB presence anymore at Provida but I'm still here! emoticon

Hey everyone, well, I am extremely tired tonight,
I made my brother an ice box fruit cake like my mother made in 1950's. Hers is different
from any you can find online, as we did not always have the ingredients and so she substituted
and then added extras so her cake was a little different. I made 10 loaf size cakes and they
will be distributed around to family members that like it...so really do and others really don't.
I usually load mine with pecans, walnuts, black walnuts, brazil nuts. Did not have brazil nuts
yet in the stores...that is my favorite part...and the pecans are hard to find for some strange
reason and if you do they are outrageous in price.

Tomorrow is my last day on the challenge, and to be honest, I am glad. I had to leave the
house so very early this morning for a dr. appointment I did not log my breakfast. Then so
busy running here and there and doing things, I have not gotten around to logging anything
else. Now I do not want to. I do know my calories are very low as I have not taken the time
to eat supper at all. I am not hungry so may skip it.

I will say good bye to all of you. I hope someone will come here and not let the team die.
God bless and take care.

Caroline

Hey everyone, I forgot to come here yesterday, as it was a busy day.
All is good. My two weeks will be up Wednesday and Thursday we head out of town
for our little mini vacation to Florida.
My scales moved down half a pound yesterday. It is a hard matter for me to lose weight.
Yall can drop 5 lbs. over nite it seems, but not this ole girl.

I am fixing to go to Walmart and find some cheese cloth as I am making that apple cider
vinegar. I have a jar going 4 weeks old...must go 6-8 weeks. I am making more because
I got 18 lbs. apples to dehydrate, and hate to throw away the core and peelings. I got me
a peeler, slicer, corer off ebay and love that thing. So, I will dehydrate the best part and
do apple cider from the cores, but also make Jakob a jar or two of apple jelly.

It turned colder here last night, and no, I did not get the quilt ready in time. I do have a closet
full already, but it was just a deadline for me.

I hope and pray each of you get things in a peaceful order in your life. Out side our life it
seems is anything but peace. God bless and I hold each of you I have met in my heart.

Hey everyone...day 8 here. Now I am at the point where I do not have a need for the challenge.
Tracking has taken hold.
Not much going on here. DH and I went to yard sales. Lady have me some things like cut
glass creamer pitchers. They had a restaurant and closed. These look like carnival glass and
very pretty. If I could reach through the computer to you I would give each of you one...if you
like that sort of thing. They will be passed around to others who might want one.

It is getting late here, but wanted to report in.

Have a great weekend and God bless.

Caroline

Hey everyone,
No TOPS is not expensive...$3.00 a month. And that is to buy achievement awards like
charms to go on a bracelet they give you. If too much money gets in the treasury, they will
usually do something to get it back low again.

emoticon emoticon emoticon
Ok, I got my report at Curves today and I lost 3.25 lbs. weight, but 3.74 lb. of fat.
the other was muscle gained. I gained half a pound of muscle. yay! I did not understand that at first. She said that what I lost was 100%
fat. I lost 5 inches, and I was the monthly best loser of weight and inches.
emoticon
I only had 13 workouts....do you see what difference it makes. Oh, my food is cutting back
on fats (MT) and refined carbs (MT) and TRACKING til the end of the day. Keep those
calories from going too high. I had to stop taking some blood pressure medicine (just 2x week) because my blood pressure was dropping good without it and I got to where I was
about to pass out going from the den to the kitchen. Now I feel better. Not so low now.
Yeah, that cider vinegar brought it down too so had to lay off that for now.

I reckon when this challenge is over I will say goodbye to all of you. I have been here
since 2011, and met some of the most wonderful people I could ever hope to meet.
Just got a feeling everyone else from the old group has already left and I didn't know it.

Well, God bless and remember all it takes is being mindful.

Good morning to each of you...

Well I am so bad about tracking I need to write it down then track for the whole day. I am having trouble with getting my water in. I am truly trying but sometimes water doesn't sit well on my tummy.

GAMMAH==how do you like TOPS?? Is it expensive??? I also do Curves except for the past year I have been on medical hold due to surgeries, Not sure if I will go back due to finances. May I ask what state do you live in??? I live in IN.

I am going to make lasagna for my crew for tonight & for the church luncheon I am planning on making chili.

Have a good day everyone

Hey everyone,
I have logged every day so far. I mean completely logged...tracked.
This is as important to me as eating pop as I always fail to finish up the day tracking.

D H wanted spaghetti today. I do not eat much beef at all as cows do not like me.
So, I could not use ground beef. Not ground turkey anymore as they gave a program at
TOPS on how ground turkey is the worst as far as being loaded with
bacteria, and probably antibiotics. So, no ground turkey.
What to use?? I got out some chicken tender breasts and sauteed them in a little Smart heart
flaxseed oil. Then I too my Vidalia onion chopper and chopper the chicken tenders into little
tiny cubes. Wow! What a nice spaghetti sauce it made...clean, clean, clean. Very low in calories as the prepared sauce was 40 cal. per half cup. I threw in a half bag of onions, peppers, and celery. It was not bad but very tasty after I added my own seasonings too.
We had green beans and I fixed dh some biscuits adding some garlic and herbs seasoning
and put them in a cast iron pan and browned them on top of the stove for a bit, and then
put them in the over at 425 degrees and zapped the tops good. They came out "crunchier"
than my regular biscuits, but that was the idea. Make them more toastie. DH ate 3 as he
does not get a treat like that often. He told me he put syrup on the last one...yuck! Sweet
on savory?? Anyway it was a good tasting piece of bread.

I skipped Curves to help dh work in the yards today. We cut bushes, and sawed some little
sapplings down. Put brush killer on what we cut. It was a bit warm so we sweated good for
about an hour.

I am proud I am still on the challenge.
Have a good evening and God bless.

Caroline

SHAKERATTLEROLL, it is ok. Glad you are back with "us". We have all been there.
Take it easy with those jumping jacks. I still hesitate with those things.

Went to curves and I lost abt. 4 lbs. for the month. I say that because I am not sure if it is little
more as I do not know the exact lbs. when I started but for sure four.
I had gained a little at first, so this is
below what I started with.
She will tell me the details tomorrow as she could not do it today since we were
having a class at recovery board times. Those can be killers, and so glad when
we get back on the machines.

I was down about half a pound this morning. But look to bounce a little.

God bless and have a great week.

Good morning everyone. Sorry I haven't been here for a while but I was just am ashamed to have to admit that I quit for a while because I lost the determination. Told you I need variety I am having a hard with it especially for breakfast any suggestions??? I usually have egg whites & oatmeal. Would anyone want to share with me what they eat in a day??? I do have good news though I was able to do a jumping jack yesterday & I did 10 this morning. I had a hip replacement a year ago so for me this is a big thing especially at my weight. Ok I ranted enough.

With the CHILI recipe that was posted is it made in the crockpot or on stove??


Praying all is well with each of you.

Congrats to you GAMMAH for your weight loss.

Raining So I opted out.
How are you all doing?
I think Michael thurman and I will work together tomorrow. He always makes my heart tick like it ought to.
Did not accomplish a lot today but still stayed busy.
Have a good evening.

Hey everyone
Ok the day is over for me and drinking my last glass of water.
I had oatmeal this morning which I hardly ever eat. Now I know why it caused acid stomach in past. It was the milk on it. I try not to drink much milk any more. It stayed with me and was so yummy with the dehydrated strawberries I did late spring. Can't wait to do more next year. I did not have the liver we had leftover salmon chowder we needed to eat. I will see how it all goes tomorrow at curves and later at TOPS.
A new week coming up so let us all plan for a great new week.

God bless

Hey everyone,
Well, I made it through the day. I think I will post on the fridge an assortment of snacks.
What to snack on...sometimes I forget what I have.
I got 8000 steps today and the curves circuit so that is good.
Got two borders on the quilt and another cut out. Stopped at a church yard sale and got
some free Tupperware canisters for my brother. He had some that did not seal good and
I think these will work for him.

Tomorrow will be...ta da!!... liver and onions! Ok, I know a lot of people do not like liver.
This is baby calf liver and I need the hyalouronic acid from it as it is suppose to be good
for that mytral valve...don't ask me how. We were going down to the Broadway Diner to
get our liver but they put that MSG in it and then we pay for it the next day. Poison!!

I don't think my weight has started to go down much, if at all, as the fat is turning to muscle
and suppose to weigh more...you know. Any way I will have my first month accessment
on Monday (Curves) and they will do BMI and measure me so that can help tell the story.

Ok, our challenge is rolling along...come on in...there will be a prize for those staying pop
during this two week period.,...yes, a nice prize. If yall don't come in I will just have to give
it to myself.
God bless and have a great day tomorrow.

Caroline

Thanks, Gammah! I just try to keep up with the calories to keep myself in "check" sorta'. It helps me stay focused, too, of what I'm putting in my mouth. I went ahead and ate just ONE of the "Snacks" but that was it! I'm learning to ask a lot of questions when I go out to eat. At first I was a little nervous but I said: "Hey, it's MY money"! The cooks were very nice and added extra veggies for me. The big plus was it was No Charge to do it. He was doing it as a courtesy! God IS faithful! We're on this road to Recovery learning as we go emoticon

CHALEYATWINS, I would not know. The others have been at it longer than I have.
But, I will say this, I probably would skip snack. There may have been a bit more oil
on the shrimp and chicken than realized. I would guess the calories would be enough
for the snack too. I think you picked a very nice lunch. Makes me want to go out and
get some of that. Put it in SparkPeople tracker and see if you are going over the calorie
range you like....but bear in mind, I do not think MT does calories.

I was POP today....yay...day 1
I went to curves and for evening meal a protein drink with almond milk and a banana...I
know that is not MT, but I am not really doing that right now. Also, the banana is not good at
night, but it got me back on those protein drinks. I needed that shove. My calories are
in a good range so I am happy. Still getting my steps in for today.

Working on me and DH a new quilt for our bed for this winter. It is quite lovely and coming
along. Just sewing some borders together to go around it. I will take a pic when I get it
finished....better hurry, it is turning a bit nippy outside.

Have a great day, and yawl come back now, ya hear!!

Please suggest....My husband and I went out to lunch (Fridays-no school for him!) However, I had grilled chicken/shrimp (made sure there wasn't any sugar dressings while cooking), rice noodles, and lot's of onion and zucchini (and I mean EXTRA vegetables piled on! Well, the problem is this: after lunch I HAD NO APPETITE for the Snack hours later! Do I go ahead and EAT the Snack (protein/carb A or B) or Skip it? Thanks to anyone who can help answer this one emoticon

Hey everyone.
I have been doing a lot of thinking about these weight issues the past few days.
First....let me get this off my chest...I saw a picture taken of me at church a couple weeks
ago, and yuck!!! I was probably the fattest lady there. Ok, most are from a family of
"runs in the family to be skinny", but some are not, and they are not fat. They eat more
than I do at these church dinners. They do not move as much as I do in a day. They do
not have to struggle with their weight simply because of their genes.
I have been sloooowly losing, but someone my size should be dropping pounds a bit quicker.

One thing I think that may be working against me is how I track my food. I started tracking
on my ipod...easy and convenient. Love it. But, I will do breakfast, and totally forget to track
the rest of day. Before, I would track on the computer and was in the habit of coming back
to it throughout the day and log my food. It also means I do not come to my teams like I did.

I apologize for not being here for you all. I have two weeks before a trip (has nothing to do
with wanting to lose weight for it) and I want to get in the habit during this time of coming
and logging on to SparkPeople.
Get back to my old way of doing things. I have me a little calendar that I will mark off for
my "POP" days. I am coming up with some menus to use the next couple weeks.
After my trip I will do this again and maybe it will be for a lot longer.

Abby, my gal, I sure do miss you.
Heather, boohoo!, where are you?
Michele, you sweet precious person, please come back.
Sharon, my dear friend, you inspired me so much. I will throw out a challenge if you will
come back.
LA, you know you are our momma. We need our momma.
Newbies, I would like to get to know all of you a little better.

Ok, I will report in everyday whether anyone is here or not.
God bless and have a great weekend.

Caroline

Checking in. Hope all are well and still on plan. Caroline, thx for the beans tip. I wondered why I wasn't having gas as usual!! You are so smart!!

I have barely been hanging in there for the past two weeks. No weight lost, none gained. This is a new week and I truly hope to get it together. I really MUST cook.

Here is the receipe for the chili

1 lb of lean turkey or chicken or lean ground beef.
1 union chopped
1 glove of garlic minced
1 green pepperseeded and chopped
14 oz pinto beans drained
28 oz diced tomatoes (sodium free)
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp black pepper freshly grounded
1/2 cayenne pepper

Enjoy.

Maybe you haven't reached all your goals yet-but who has? And maybe you've made a few mistakes along the way-but who hasn't? You have every reason to feel proud of who you are. Notice your triumphs, big and small. There are so many.


Doing your best is important than being the best.
