Too bad about the photo Kathy. Maybe you will eventually be able to post it.

I slept late today I think because I was so tired yesterday. Well I caught up on the sleep I apparently needed and was super productive all day. The house is cleaned up and all the food is prepped including the dessert DS requested. I am amazed at how much I was able to accomplish today. I feel very proud of myself!

Time for bed because no sleeping late tomorrow....must be up and out early for church and then back home in time to be ready for cousin Steve.

Kathy - Did you post your photo and blog? I checked but didn't see it. Woo hoo on your really good food day!

I struggled a bit today. I was abnormally tired which does not bode well for me in terms of healthy eating. I did ok, but today was not one of my better days. Will be busy tomorrow prepping for company coming on Sunday. DS wants me to make one of his favorite desserts "for the company," but really....for him. I will probably make it and do my best to avoid eating it.

I slept most of the day today....... Too much excitement from the foregoing events, I guess.
SIL is home and doing okay.... And daughter is benched for the next six weeks!! Yikes.

Did well again today, even though I slept late. I stayed mostly on track and got things done here at home. Planning to get to bed early (for me) because I have a busy day planned for tomorrow.

Glad your SIL is doing ok. Oh no, about your daughter's foot now. Must be very difficult for her to get around in that cast. Also glad you took a "brain break." I know you need it.

I started the series of knee injections (both knees) today. I am optimistic this will give me some good results. I am hoping to buy some time to avoid knee replacements as long as possible.

Can't believe tomorrow if Thursday already. This week is flying by...but really I think they all do anymore.

Out of surgery and looking very drunk, but doing okay. No O2 running, so he is recovering well on his own.

Daughter broke her foot taking her dog for a walk, so..... She's in a full leg cast....... Geeeesh!!!!

When it rains it pours!

I'm doing okay tho...... Took a brain break day today........😉

Kathy - How are things with your SIL? Both DS and I added him and you to our prayer lists. emoticon

I enjoyed today because my day went exactly as planned, something rather unusual for me. I got done everything I wanted to do and had no interruptions and no surprises. I even got some extra chores done. My eating was on track too, kind of easy to do with this kind of at home day.

His first name is Lance...... He is 50 years old....... The docs decided to let his body calm down a bit so have delayed his surgery till tomorrow...... He'll be getting a stent.....

I'm thinking he'll be fine after recovery.

I did okay actually..... Broke stride a little bit and had a subway lunch, but that was enough to fill me up for a week, so I'm good!!

Thanks for the prayers!!

Oh Kathy, will keep you and your SIL in my prayers. Do you mind telling me his first name, as I keep a prayer list by first names. Please keep me posted on how he is doing.How old is he? Hope the stress didn't undo your healthy eating streak! Hope you were able to grab some fruit or veggies if you had the urge to nibble.

I did exceptionally well with my healthy eating on plan today. Now, I just need to keep this streak going. I am feeling stronger in terms of my commitment and am working hard to do well.

Learned early this morning that my son-in-law has suffered a heart attack and is in surgery as we speak. This is when living away in the tropics is really tough......I can't get up to SFO...... Financial constraints and medical restrictions keep me here.

Noticed that the first thing I wanted to do was find something to eat!!! How telling is that!!!!

Kathy - I applaud your stamina and attitude! Woo Hoo!

Chicken is baking in the oven at the moment....and smells sooooo goood! Taking it a bit easy today. Our team hosted coffee hour at church today. We work very well together and enjoy being with each other. I stuck to fresh fruit even though there were plenty of baked goods there too. Some days at coffee hour are easier than others.

Happy Sunday!

Up and about early today and feeling really good. Enjoying some green tea and preparing my "to do" list which includes a little grocery shopping later in the day.

The beginning of a long week....... My colleague is on vacation this week..... And the gal that usually covers for us can't come in..... So I'm on full time for the week...... First time since I've returned to work limited part time in over a year. It will be interesting to see how I do!! A challenge for sure!!!

Tuesdays are usually a full rest day for me..... Wed/Thu PT days....Friday laundromat day..... Not so this week. Gotta buck up I guess!!

I'll let you know if I survive it all!!

Marathon sprint..... Here I come!!

My plan is to avoid the replacements as long as I possibly can. Time will tell. I had synvisc shots in one knee about 6 years ago and did really well. I will probably get the updated version of these shots in both knees starting in 2 weeks. I have been bone on bone for many years.

Had a good day today even with having company. My mind set is solid. But more temptations await over the weekend.

Saw my orthopedic doc today. Got cortisone shots in both knees. Haven't had any such shots in over 6 years....but it was time again. He told me if my knees were tires they wouldn't pass inspection. Ugh!

Kathy - I love my water, almost as much as I love my coffee. I usually drink lemon water (hot in the morning and from the fridge after that). I also enjoy selzter water because I like the fizz!

A pretty good day here today. Company (my son's Godmother) arrives tomorrow. Meals will be a bit more challenging because she likes to eat out a lot. DS and I are more eat-at-home folks.

Today was better for me, but still was not an easy day. Going to a picnic tomorrow. Will have to be careful with my choices. I am taking fruit and veggies so at least that much will be compliant.

Had a relatively productive day here at home...got in lots of steps based on the pedometer on my phone.

Kathy - Those 2 pounds are probably just a blip along the way. Yep, I agree....and I seldom weigh 2 days in a row...I tend to weigh more often when I feel like I had a big loss, but sometimes that is disappointing too...so better for me to weigh just once or twice a week.

I had another good day today. Our organic food delivery day is Friday. I am always so impressed with the high quality produce they have as well as the other organic offerings such as organic oatmeal. With so much healthy food on hand, it is a lot easier to stay on track. emoticon

Ooooopps.....Two pounds up today..... Wonder what that's all about!!! I know I didn't get enough water on board yesterday...... And I do know that makes a huge difference. Also...... Body was way out of whack yesterday and very uncomfortable...... Interesting...... Food plan was good.

Shows to go why we shouldn't weigh every day!! 😳

Got lucky last night with a great salad when we went out to dinner. It was huge with lots of healthy veggies, dressing on the side, and the veggies were so good that I hardly used any dressing.

Today I was a bit tired (out too late last night), but managed to stay on track. Sometimes when I am not well rested I struggle more with healthy eating, but today was ok.

Kathy - Glad you are taking care of yourself!

I am checking in earlier than usual today because I am leaving for a short road trip with some friends. We will be eating out this evening, but I am prepared to make healthy choices. It's just all the sodium in restaurant food that troubles me a great deal!!

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Kathy. I did ok afterall, thanks to veggie trays at both events and baked fish at one of the parties. And oddly enough the sweet sugary desserts didn't even tempt me today.

Went to a wedding today....one of DS's friends tied the knot. Very lovely wedding. I stayed amazingly compliant, but not perfect. I don't think I did any serious damage today. Feeling good at the moment. Tomorrow holds two challenges....a birthday party for a friend who is turning 70 and then later a graduation party for a young man from our church. Both events will be fun but challenging in terms of healthy choices....I am mentally prepared to do well however.

Kathy - every now and then a quiet day is a really good thing.


Had a good day today...up earlier than usual, out the door earlier than usual, had my annual gyn appointment (all is well), ran errands, did a little housework, and stayed on track all day....going to relax this evening and watch a baseball game (DS and I are huge NY Yankee fans even though we live in PA)

Kathy - Yum on the beef and asparagus, but no onions in our house! emoticon

On track today and somewhat tired (but not exhausted) after a very busy full day, including out to breakfast with a friend (had a veggie omelet), grocery shopping at 2 different grocery stores, and going a baseball game where DS coaches....also took care of laundry here at home......Hope to take it easier tomorrow.

Kathy - It's difficult for me to picture Hawaii being gray! But I know it happens. I visited there in the late 1960s...truly found it a tropical paradise...I was MUCH younger then! Good going with your progress!

Rainy here today, but not too unusual for spring in PA. I think the wet weather sapped me of my energy today....hoping to get to bed early.

So far so good..... Relatively speaking.....
Working thru some SI Joint stuff which isn't too much fun..... But it is what it is. Very gray and wet here today........that's what keeps my island so green!!! ..... And it's Mother nature's way of keeping our visitors from getting too much sun!!!!

14 pounds gone!! Progress continues to be great!!!

Kathy - Hope your get more comfortable...When my son was little, he used to say he wanted to get "recomfortable" when he was uncomfortable. I love how little kids can make up words. That is one that has always stayed with me.

I was on track again today. It was not a struggle at all I think because I felt very well rested. I find that when I don't feel well rested eating on plan is a bit more of a challenge.

I am finally back on track after way too many days of Easter foods. I expect to do pretty well for the next few days even with a church luncheon coming up this Sunday. Some weekends are tough for me (depending on my social activities), while others are smooth as silk.

Let's all make this a GRRRREATTT weekend! emoticon emoticon

Thank you TAMMYAND! I think I am OK now - How are you doing after Easter?
Sabina how is it going for you?
I seem to do amazing during the week but the weekends screw me up for days afterwards - going to another party this weekend too but trying to not cheat too much and recover with a shake day (I know that's not ideal but better than stopping I guess)
This diet seems to be working really well - but still counting down the days to finish the first 17 so I can add more variety again - looking forward to hearing your progress!

LETSDOIT - To change your sparkpage from private, go to your spark page, then go to the "spark page settings" box in the upper right section of your spark page. Make sure the first box is not checked (this is the box that says "allow only friends to see my spark page"...or something to that effect.) If that box is checked, you uncheck it and then others can see your page...and send you goodies!!!! Let us know if you change it!

Hope everyone is doing well. I am struggling a bit to get completely back on track with so much extra Easter food around yet.

Steph - You are not a crazy woman!!! I can relate to what you posted, I usually refer to it as getting sloppy, but it is the same idea as what you said. When I am compliant I do very well. When I get sloppy, it shows. When I first came to this team and this diet, a team member really stressed to me about not starting over...just jumping right back on plan. I found that to be good advice. Yes, my "blips" slowed down my weight loss, but overall I still continued to lose. That team member also explained to me how there is likely never going to be a perfect time for me to start and stay on the diet. The key is learning to follow the plan as closely as possible while life is what it is. There will always be events that can get in our way and derail us. If we let that happen we should just get back on asap...not tomorrow, not Monday....right away....as soon as the next meal.
I am glad you are here and doing well. Hope to share more of this journey with you!

How is everyone else doing??

Hi Guys - on day 9 of cycle 2, round 1 - just checking in here to "process" a little - as I feel like I have stalled.
I am struggling with my tendency to always give up and re-start. I read way back on the newbie advice thread and someone very wisely said that there is no restart, if you stumble you just try and keep going. I think this is really important for me as I want to make this a lifestyle, and my tendency is to jump from one plan to the next.
I have been tracking my calories lately and I actually think this works against me with this diet, because I stop letting my hunger be my guide and get too obsessed. So I am going to stop that. I have been reading back through the diet and realizing I have been getting "cocky" and letting some foods creep in (protein powder, olives, feta cheese, lean beef) that really weren't supposed to be there in the first cycle. So my loss was lower than I wanted. Then in cycle 2 I started "spinning out" lol, adding in nuts, not getting my starches, having the occasional cheat meal, not doing the proper 1,2,1,2 alternations. And so of course a weight stall, then frustration, then the urge to quite and go find the next latest greatest plan and start over.
Well I am not going to do that this time. I am not" starting over on Monday" anymore! I am going right back in to the middle of cycle 2, where I am. I have lost 4 lbs, I am exercising more, my pants fit better, I feel fantastic and so much more energetic. I am not going to let my self-doubt and impatience derail me! I have two cycles of this planned and that is what I am going to complete (dangit!)
OK thanks for basically letting me do a blog post over here lol. Can anyone relate or am I a crazy woman?

Steph

I agree Kathy. I try to check my bank accounts daily or every other day at least, doing so online. Same for my credit card (I really only use one). Checking online is how I discovered the fraudulent check.

I am doing well in terms of compliance with plan. And I have had 2 pretty good days in terms of my health. I think my RA is calming down a bit. I see my rheumatologist on Monday. It will be interesting to hear what he has to say because I have had some rough weeks since I last saw him, but at the moment am doing relatively well. I do think clean eating has a lot to do with this. Also, I am doing as much with organic foods as possible. Still loving the organic home delivery service. And their customer service is outstanding!

Hard to believe the weekend is here already. Hope it is a good one for all!
