Both seem to be doing well. The oldest needs to start looking for work. We are giving her ideas, I guess she could be applying online, I know she did at least check one out online. She didn't think she was qualified- it requires at least an associate's degree- she has 6 years of college classes minus the 2 or 3 classes she failed. But no degree to show for it yet. I told her list the total number of credits she does have on her resume.

Got out of work last night at 1:35 am. We had inventory at 2 of the neighboring stores , one about 45 minutes east of where I live the other about 15 to 20 minutes west. One was well prepared and was 90% done within 3 hours of us arriving. While we were on a break our district manager called and asked the store manager if he could spare the 3 of us from my local store and could we head to the other store - 1 hour away to help them. When we got there they were only about half done. They had left all the hardest stuff for last. Several people just didn't show up that were scheduled. It was a mess. Our manager was the auditor for the store and I could tell she was very upset at how little prep they had done.

Our local store is having inventory in 2 weeks and our manager is already talking about how we will be doing the hardest things first (and taking them to the stock room to do them) and hiring several temps (at least 4 or 5) to help out. We will not be there beyond 11 if she has any say about it. She had 3 hours of sleep before opening our store this morning. I don't know how she did it . I would be sick if I had to go with so little sleep before working like that.

And on a lighter note, I'm finally losing again! Two pounds this week. I don't know how, but I'll take it.

Hope everyone is doing well.
Just got back from taking Dd2 to school for week long cross country camp, and moving Dd1 home from college. It was a long weekend. Crossed signals and moving 2 girls in one day, one in and the other out was not much fun. Add a 2.5 hour round trip to pick up the U-haul trailer to move 6 years worth of stuff back home, then the normally 4 hour trip home ended up 8 because the guy we picked the trailer up from suggested back roads would be safer with the shape Dd1's car was in. We we're up and moving at 8am to get stuff packed, cleaned, checked out, picked up, loaded, in loaded, etc. In our own beds around 21 hours later, boy was it a long day. Still didn't get the storage unit completely emptied but that can be done by Dd2 and friends after she gets back from camp.

Getting laid off seems to be going around. I have 3-4 weeks off while they do the remodeling on our new location. I needed the time to get caught up on stuff around the house. But we really need the money.
I am picking up a few hours helping someone get their apartment organized but it's not steady. She made it sound like it was urgent and would be 2-3 hours each day until we were done but when I went Friday she says she has other people helping with the cleaning/organization and only wants me to help with stuff she doesn't trust others to do- computers and electronics. Oh well, at least it's extra money.

Hi all. It's quiet on here, the summer must be challenging for everybody. I need to get back with it. I know the program works well when I follow it. I just wish it included potato chips (lol) my weakness. Oh well I guess carrots and celery will have to do.
How is everybody else doing? Any good food finds or suggestions?

Christine, a family that used to attend our church regularly had a fire last night and the oldest daughter lost everything. I don't know how much the rest of them lost but it will be badly smoke damaged at least. Could you put them on your prayer list. (Jan and 3 young adult kids -2 of them are special needs)

Well the memorial service is being added to the family reunion next Saturday. Strange combination but I guess that makes it so more can make it to both. It will be next door to my mom's, I think. That's about a 4 hour drive.

Had a decent weigh in this week, but wouldn't you know it, I weighed almost 1# less the next day. We'll I guess that should help next week be even better.
I might have a funeral to go to in a few days, it depends where it is. My mom's half brother passed, he has lived out west for the last 30-40 years so I don't know where it will be. If it is here I should go but I can't afford to travel more than a couple hundred miles. And that always messes with my weigh in for 4- 5 days, at least. But this time I'm prepared in the travel snack department. We bought pre washed celery yesterday :) Funeral dinner good is usually not food for weigh ins either. Oh well.

Keep up the good work on the exercise Christine. :)

well I am disappointed in myself.... it seems If I take one step forward then I take 2 steps back ..... ERRRRR !! For some reason I cannot STAY on my path.... but for a temporary time ! I am glad that I have stuck with my exercise program now for 4 weeks !! I am working up to 6 days a week but not there yet ! My knees do ache but no more than they were and I am making it ! The HUMIDITY has been almost UNBEARABLE but I have walked outside for over 4 weeks now and I am proud of myself for that ! WOO HOO !! Has NOT been easy in this heat !

Hope everyone else is hangin on and doing alright ????

Hi! My husband and I are starting the simple diet tomorrow. We went to the grocery tonight and we're all ready to start off first thing in the morning. Wish us luck. I have 50 lbs to lose and he has 30. We're new to this board and to the diet. Any tips?

Well. It rained all day Saturday. Everyone went home after the parade. We had about 6 people stop by for hot dogs. 3 were neighbors coming home from the parade. We have talked so little with them lately we didn't even know he is the MAYOR of our town and has been for several months. Their daughter is 11 days younger than our youngest. The wife and I used to stand at the bus stop with our kids an talk a lot. After I took out girls to a different school we kind of drifted apart. It was good catching up.
Took my girls last week to visit my family and gained 5#! I really have to get working on my exercise again.

I lost 2.8 pds this week ,,, YIPEE..... may the trend downard please continue !!
Its been a HUMID / SUFFOCATING muggy last week here and it takes your breath away to walk to mailbox outside. We've had heat index of over 100 for 3 straight days and this weekend is to bring a rain shower and hopefully cooler temps !! YAY!!

I started an interval walking program and I think its working !! If I don't have a heat stroke then I will continue and hopefully manage to at least get it in on 3 different days this coming week !!

HOpe all is doing well...... Have we lost everyone else ???????
Where are all of you and how's it going ???
I discovered several NEW lean cuisines at groceries this week..... they are higher protein but they charge a lot for them.... they have two new lines( lean cuisine is one and stouffers the other ) ... Stouffers is called Fit and LEAN ..... most of theirs were over in calories but I bought two that were not !

keep on keepin on

Life is busy here in the fish bowl.

Getting ready for a church open house next Saturday. The town is having a week long celebration next week with a parade on Saturday and it lines up in front of the church. We will be passing out bottles of water and coupons for a free hot dog. Trying to get them to come back after the parade to check us out. We've been painting, cleaning, and tossing for weeks. We are hoping to get a few more people to see how much like family our church is and start coming.

Work is work. I don't know how much I've told you but we hope to hear what's been decided tomorrow or Saturday. But until then it's business as usual. With my hours ranging from 29 one week to 12 the next.

Have a good day. :)

Christine, I will be praying you find things at the pot lucks that are diet friendly.
One of my favorite things to make for dinners is a recipe I found in a Richard Simmons cookbook called Pavlova- it's wonderful, light and not too bad on the calories if you exercise portion control, I help that along by making individual ones, going light on the whipped cream and having plenty of fresh fruit on mine. It feels like a real splurge but doesn't break the calorie bank.
It may not totally fit with TSD but we all go off plan at least occasionally.

Well I think it's time to get off the computer and get some work done before bed.

hey all

How's everyone's week going ??? I tried a new lean cuisine dinner that I liked a lot ! Just had to share.... it 's called Fajita style Chicken Spring rolls. There is two servings and you get 3 smALL SPRING rolls about the size of your finger.... Like 3 fingers ! I loved them and they satisfied my cravings for chinese and tasted mexican also !! Not that filling so I had to include a large salad and a fruit to help fill me up but VERY TASTY !!
It had 220 calories, 15g of protein, and 3 g of sugar.

I skated through the week pretty well but next week is our yearly VBS and I love it and look forward to it but after a week of cooking and baking cookies every day and running after those kids .... I am exhausted. I hope to avoid the sweets but after I smell them hot from the oven .... its TOUGH !! Please keep your fingers crossed for me !

The good news is the new girl at work is a real sweetheart and so sweet and nice to work with and I am loving being home more !!
I had my first bite of fresh watermelon this week and IT WAS DEELISH !!

hubby is off this weekend so we probably go out for steak one night

You can turn off their suggested meals. Once you find something you like and will eat again and again you can save it to your favorites to find quickly the next time you eat it. Also if you eat something every day you can find it in your recent tab on the nutrition page. I use the recent tab a lot.

Sorry it has been so long. Life is just too busy right now. End of the church year and I do ALL THE REPORTS. It's a small church and I wear several hats. The treasurer hasn't done one in years- he is too busy, so I do it for him. DH basically types a paragraph and signs the final copy. This year I had to ask for a light week at work so I can get it all done without as much stress. Wasn't working last year.

Hope everyone is doing well. We can do this.

What's done is done...... I so so agree with the others .... just start right back over..... that mentality that you have to be perfect will ABSOLUTELY DESTROY your hopes for reaching goals..... strive for PERSISTENCE instead of PEFECTION !! NO ONE.... absolutely NO ONE is perfect and doesn't stumble ! WE ALL DO..... it s the getting back at it and NOT giving up that will make a difference !! Just keep on doing good things and as time goes by it REALLY does get easier and easier to make good eating choices !

I too have found that if I stay on top of the protein and make sure that I have at least 60g or more per day then I don't get as hungry and do lots better. KUDOS for doing your strength exercises... make sure to acknowledge to yourself that you are doing GOOD things and choices also. !! Try talking to yourself in a positive reinforcement instead of pointing out the negatives....... reward yourself with some sort of gift for doing so many positives in a week or month or whatever ??? Keep a jar and when you do something positive like work out or eat veggies then write it down and put it in the jar !! at the end of the week read all your great achievements to keep your self motivated !!

If you are hungry then eat !! You are allowed extra servings when hungry.EAT protein and make sure you have plenty throughout the day and talk to us ..... we really do care and want to help !

Thank you all for being so supportive of me..it really helps. I am doing much better today. Although I still skipped breakfast, but only because I sleep in on saturdays, and I slept through it. Not an excuse, but the truth. My depression is a little brighter today, so that helps a lot. I know I can do it ! Thanx!

I agree with Judebs Jessi - you CAN do it!! Make sure the food you eat is healthy food you like the taste of, whatever that might be. If you hate the food, you will never keep it up. And keep trying food you haven't tried before, just because it may be that thing that keeps you on track.

For instance - I tried Jicama the other day. Chopped it into tiny pieces, and put them in 1 cup tupperware bowls in the fridge. When I eat, I bring a bowl out. It's almost all fiber and nutrition, and very few calories. You can satisfy a lot of your "chewing" need on something like that.

Yesterday is over with. Pick yourself up and just do today. Tomorrow you can do it again. One success builds on another!!

Hey Jessi, welcome! Don't skip breakfast. It sets you up to binge later in the day. Try a shake blended with a serving of fruit. My favorite is chocolate with half a banana. If you're hungry before lunch, have a 100 cal Greek yogurt. Two of these a day sub for another shake. Don't skip your fruits and veggies, they help keep you full. I try and measure my veggies out ahead of time after eating a meal, when I'm not too hungry. I find it hard to eat all the food I'm allowed if I get in my veggies and water. And don't throw in the towel after one bad day; just pick yourself up and try again. You can do it - and you're worth it!

Hi, my name is Jessi, This is my second try with the TSD. I'm on my 4th day of being back on. I did good until today. I did 60 mins of weight training this morning. I skipped breaksfast ( I usually do ).Did good for lunch. I then munched on strawberries. Later on I binged and ate all the leftover strawberries (3 boxes). I was so upset with myself, I have already been more depressed then usual. Dairy Queen is a 5 min walk. I gave in and walked down and got my favorite a medium cone with sprinkles.I am so mad at myself. I know I can do better. I lost weight the first time I tried TSD, so I know I can it again. It's just so hard, and I feel so alone. I wish I was stronger. It's hard for me to truthfully talk about my eating with people usually but for whatever reason it's not hard to be honest here. Maybe this is what I need to help me. I have very few friends, no man, no family. I would love to find others in the weight struggle to write back and forth with. I love to talk and I'm a good listener. I need help. and I have no idea where else to reach out.

I'm still plugging along. My weight loss is continuing, but slower than at first. Down 13 pounds from when I started last month. I'm finding TSD to be very doable. I already have a pair of pants I need to get rid of because they're too loose now :-) Keep up the fight ladies!

Getting ready for work. DD and DH left about half an hour ago to see the parade in the small town where she graduated. It claims to be the biggest parade in the area they give out pins to all the veterans that show up, they have cloggers come and entertain while waiting for the parade to start, they usually have about 100 cars, fire trucks, tractors, and floats. People come from miles around to see it. And I can't go today emoticon . Oh well maybe next year.

Hope everyone has a good day today.

I've been so busy lately. Had to drive about 10 hours last weekend to get dd2 from college for the summer. I tried to get healthy snacks before going but the local huge grocery store only had party trays full of veggies or melons cut up ready to eat. Melons would be too drippy and I only wanted celery and carrots and they didn't have any celery in any of the trays and all kinds of things I don't eat. Sooooooo. I gained. And I'm still trying to get it back to where it was.
Went to see a new doctor on Monday , he gave me more help in the 45 minute new patient visit than 10 years with my old Dr. He gave me exercises for my hip and says it's probably bursitis not arthritis like I had assumed all these years. He is having me do a sleep study to see what's up with my snoring and being tired all the time. He set up blood tests and x-rays for before the next appointment in September. He also insisted that I do more strength exercises to help cut down on the belly fat. He is quite pleased with the 28 pounds lost. Now to get in gear and lose ten more before the next appointment.

I set a five week weight loss goal to lose ten pounds by 5/15. I weighed myself this morning and found I'd already surpassed my goal by a half a pound! The Simple Diet is proving to be a really good fit for me. Time to make a new goal!

Hello Christine -

Ye I am hanging in there. Had a pretty good weekend. Making strides this week. Had my last trainer session at Golds today. I bought a new weight training book that looks great. Cost about $15 - less than 1/4 of a training session, so I'm looking forward to trying the routine.

Hi Everybody, Whew I'm glad it's Monday. It's a good day for a fresh start.
Christine just hang on for the next week and maybe you can catch your breath. I've often told my husband, I can do life or I can do a diet, but I can't do both. Somehow there has to be a way to merge the two.
MissUSriverrat and KD I hope you're both still doing well and anybody else that is trying this diet.
I did really well for about 3 weeks and then had a month of illness and injury. The weather has finally turned beautiful and I'm hoping to be able to get back on and stick with it. We have a trip planned to Australia in January so I have a goal set. That should help.

GO US!!!!!

Skinnie -- so glad your mammogram came back OK !

Interesting to hear that others are working with meals that fit the guidelines.
I think that is going to be important for me to have a reasonable maintenance plan.

I bought protein powder yesterday and am going to try using that instead of the liquid shakes because it's cheaper. Plus there is more protein per serving. We shall see. Hope the taste is as good.

Christine it sounds like you need to slow down a bit!! This is the way women are wired though - always taking care of others. Just get up today, and focus on making it through the day 90%. It will make you feel so much better about yourself tomorrow. Then tomorrow, do the same thing. If you make it through the next two weeks at 90%, you will most likely have lost something, and still enjoyed your vacation. At the least, you will not have gained what you could if you just give up for the next two weeks. Don't do that!!

I'm doing well but not losing quickly. That's okay. I'd rather lose quickly, but slowly going in the right direction, while living life, is pretty good.

Have a good week everyone!!


Karen

well My life is super crazy and super busy lately !! Yes my mammogram was ok. they want me to come back in 6 mos and then again for my yearly and if there is no change they will leave me alone..... thank goodness. They had a new 3D machine and it shows so much more !!

Nancy ... men just lose faster...... it alwasy frustrates me that I can lose 30 pds and my husband maybe 5 and EVERYONE will come up to him and ask HOW MUCH weight have you lost and NEVER notice mine !! LOL !!

I am still having a terrible time diet wise ..... I am going out of town for the next two weekends and I know that life and eating out will be tough therefore I've sort of quit trying !!! SHAME AND BOO !!! I can't seem to get my mind in the game since i've got SO much going on !! so mad and frustrated with myself !!I've been busy trying to find and buy Mother's day gifts for the Nieces who are new moms and then our moms too !!

I often will use recipes that I substitute for the frozen dinners if the portions are within the guidelines of a dinner....... like less than 10 g of fat and more than 10 g of protein and less than 300 calories !! You can enter them in the spark recipes here and it will figure up the stats for you.... I love this feature !!

I make some of my own frozen dinners sometimes too MISSUSRIVERRAT keeping my numbers in line with Dr. Anderson's criteria. I really don't like all of the white flour, white rice, etc. in the store bought ones.

I started yesterday back on the Simple Diet as revised by me (see my intro under the introduction section). The day went well ! I am pumped up about this. I had been doing intuitive eating and really did not gain weight back, but it just felt so iffy. It was just kind of a constantly insecure feeling which I did not really like. So I am going to work with the plan, get to my lowest weight of my chosen acceptable weight range (3 pounds down and 1 inch off waist), and then figure out how to work into maintenance. I am trying to work-out a "forever" plan based on the Simple Diet. I'm using this diet because I love the food and it works for me ! It is filling and satisfying and makes me feel great ! Plus, I really don't like to cook or to do all kinds of thinking about food.

This morning I did weigh myself and took measurements. I will share with you guys as I go through this.

Christine - I'm sorry you're having such a tough week. I hope everything goes well today with your mamogram. I had to have a follow up biopsy one year and I was on pins and needles for 3 weeks.
I actually had gastric bypass about 23 years ago. It was the best thing I ever did. I lost 130 pounds and kept it off for a long time. Then life happened and I slowly gained about half of it back. I have gone up and down over the last 10 years but I would do it again for sure. Even now if I would just eat at my meals I still can't eat alot. My problem is I've been eating some all day and the weight just creeps up.
This diet has been such a blessing because if I get hungry I drink a shake or eat some veggies or fruit or something so I'm not hungry all the time.
I find I need the guidelines so that I just don't grab a handful of this or that. Chips are my worst.
My husband decided he would do a modified version or the diet and walk too. Why do men lose so much easier than women. Grrrr. I'm glad he's doing well. I just want to lose as quick as he is.

Take care everyone.

Hi everyone

Having a VERY bad eating week !! I plan on getting back on track this weekend..... unfortunately my schedule will not allow it before that !!

Karen I go to Chuch with two women who've had the sleeve who are sisters. also a man who had the whole thing and then another family member of the sisters had it also. The sleeve is supposed to be less invasive ! Both sisters lost weight but neither one is small and one did better than the other. They did have vomiting issues and cannot drink ANY carbonation of ANY sort ! I think they are glad they did it ??????? The man did not do any classes to help him with the mental part of it and he quickly regained all his weight and then some. He is LARGE ! I feel for him. I wonder how long he will EVEN be mobile. It from what I've seen is NOT the cure all slash ..... be all ! YOU STILL have to WORK AT IT ! Therefore my moto is ....... if you still have to work then why not try before the surgery??????? I understand both sides for sure and would not say anything to anyone who chooses it !! I have thought about it also.

I have to go back for a retake on my yearly mammography and would like to ask for prayers . I am a little nervous about it !! Its today at 1 pm
thanks everyone

MISSUSRIVERRAT---- you come on back and share all you want to ... so glad to see you !!

Nancy- so glad to hear from you also

anna- you too !

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. Using my smart phone and the spark ap makes it a real work out for my brain to visit my teams and takes a lot of time to navigate. One day last week it wouldn't let me go to any of my teams. I don't like to use my hot spot with my tablet because I forget to turn it back off.

My SIL had one of those bariatric surgeries just over a year ago and has lost about 100lbs and still needs to lose probably 100 more. She seems to be doing ok with it, but for the first few months after the surgery she had a rough time eating much of anything. Another lady from MIL's church had similar surgery about the same time and she lost a lot of weight, in my opinion way too much- she went from about 300 to about 120 in less than a year. I've heard she has had a lot of trouble following her surgery. I also know a pastor who had it about 5 years ago and he lost about 100lbs and as far as I can tell he has gained it all back. I think a lot depends on the type of surgery, your surgeon, your body's reaction to the surgery and your commitment to following doctors orders. If you can't follow orders you are in for a lot of trouble- vomiting, and weight gain. Also I've heard that most people end up having their gall bladder removed a short while later.

Trying hard to stay as close to the plan as I can but we have 2 big dinners at church in the next couple of weeks so I don't know how I'm going to keep from eating too much.

This last week has been a lot better for me. My husband (not on SP) came home with info on bariatric surgery. He is about 100 lbs overweight, and has diabetes, and high cholesterol, and HBP. Along with some kidney issues. He definitely fits all the profiles for getting it done. It's very scary for me to think of him going under for that, not to mention he doesn't like high fiber, low carb, or any kind of healthy food.

Well, he does eat what I make, but he prefers the fried, white flour food his southern mom made for him when he was growing up. And he eats what he wants when he is away from me, so I can't control everything.

Anyway - just wondering if anyone knows anyone who has had the gastric sleeve survery (or any other kind of bariatric surgery) and what their results were. What I am really wondering is the side effects, whether or not they thought it was worth it, and if they would do it again if they could do it all over.

I am reading many of the posts in the forums and other places online, but personal anecdotes are very interesting to me.

Karen

Hi everybody. I'm back... Oh my the last month has been a long one. My knee is probably back to 90% so I feel like I can start walking again. I kept off most of what I had lost initially so I'm ready to get back at it. I sent all the yummy food home with the kids last night so I wouldn't be tempted and got up and drank my shake today. Reading your thoughts and challenges and successes has kept me motivated while I was struggling. Maybe we can make some kind of challenge between us to motivate us all to really do it now.

Yes Karen it was .... that happened in 2013 and unfortunately I have been stuck ever since and then in late 2014 I gained about 20 something pounds back. I have NOT changed it to my ticker to try to keep me motivated to get back there. I am struggling in 2015 to just maintain.
I could not seem to get past that point for some reason ! ????

this week was VERY rough on me..... lots of church dinners and food cooking !! I am trying to get my mojo back !!

Hope everyone is hangin on and staying on program !

It must be so gratifying to see that you are half way to your goal though Christine - that's super motivation to keep it up!

I've had a tough week. Food everywhere. Stress and appointments and always having to cook dinner for one or two or three. Some days I'd like to not have to cook at all... but really, I do like having a husband and family!

Will keep it up and hope for a better end to Easter and beyond.

Karen

Hi anna, Karen and Nancy !!

Hope you all are doing fine and hanging in there...... Nancy I hope your knee feels better.... emoticon


I have been super busy this week with a gospel meeting going on at my Church everynight and lots of cooking and eating. !! UGH !!! I am trying to maintain but its tough with all those potlucks and heavenly desserts !!MY in laws came and spent the night and it was fun .. !!

I managed to have 3 full days on program before the eating began and it encouraged me to try to hang on ... life is NEVER going to slow down and allow me to do my thing so I am going to HAVE to learn to manage this stress eating thing !! I am not happy with my clothes and the fact I gained this winter and so I must decide to change !! I am incorporating more vegetables and starting to see better choices for me so I will continue and fight !! Now if my back and knee will allow me to get back to my walking and exercising ............. ( fingers crossed)

Hope everyone is having an on program week......

keep on keepin on

I too have suffered with knee problems and they are definitely NOT fun !! I sure hope it gets better .... as for me when mine flares up I just straighten it and stay on couch !!

Karen I agree with you ..... just stay solid in the diet and hang on is very good suggestion ! You can do arm movements and I thing SP has some some chair exercises even that nancy can do on here !!

I have had a crazy busy week and am trying to stay on track with my eating ! Lots going on and a busy time for me !!


hope everyone has a great on program week

They say weight loss has all to do with the kitchen, and strength building and toning have all to do with the gym. Do what you can with where you are - keep your diet tight and don't worry about the exercise for a bit!

I hope everyone had a wonderful easter weekend. I'm a little discouraged because the knee thing is getting worse instead of better. It's really hard to be excited when I'm having trouble even walking more or less exercising. I'm going to stick with the diet as well as I can and hope what I did lose stays off until I can get the knee take care of. The soonest I can get into a dr is the 14th so we'll just hang in there til then. Keep going I'll live vicariously.

Hi all, I had to not plan on making my usual favorites for easter dinner. I am planning lots of fruit and veggies, some ham and maybe a bite or two of the potatoes. I agree with the theory of trying to eat in moderation once in a while rather than feeling totally deprived and going off in a big way. You guys are such inspiration and it's so helpful to read your comments and hints. I tweaked my knee about 10 days ago and then got really sick last Thursday and am finally just starting to feel better so I'm hoping to get back to real life soon. I went to the Dr and he gave me a steroid shot in my knee and said I could start walking again in a week which I was thrilled about because I was thinking maybe surgery. Hope you all have a wonderful easter weekend.

Thanks Christine! I am going to try and do just that. I have been doing so well lately, but I lose so slowly, I don't want to give up two weeks worth in one day.

Happy Good Friday everyone!

hey Karen I don't think 210 calories for a protein bar is too bad over


as far as for Easter I will make sure to track the food I eat and not eat too many sweets.... I will eat some ham and vegetables ! Its the bread that really calls me ,......... OOPS !!

My motto is try to make better choices but have a little so I don't feel " deprived " however that really is a personal thing... some people do better by staying 100 % away but I feel deprived and pout and then later I eat worse than if I let myself have a " little" of the regular foods....... that really all depends on you and how you handle things and I found out YEARS AGO..... that what works for one person may or may NOT work for another...... so use your own judgement ! If cheating a little will " trigger " your overeating than DON"T !! we are all different !! Listen to yourself and try to learn about yourself..... this is a journey and we all want to get healthier.... we learn more about ourselves as we go along ........ I have learned for me... that persistence does more for me than perfection ! I can NEVER achieve perfection !

Hugs and good luck

Christine

I love the Atkins triple chocolate bar to keep my chocolate cravings at bay !! it has 12 g of protein and 160 calories...... I also like the Zone perfect frudge graham one that is 15 g of protein and 210 calories... a little over the guidelines !
Dr A says in the book on page 38 that you can eat up to 2 nutrition bars a day but not to count them as meal replacements ! However I remember reading somewhere he said to not eat over 7 in a week to help with weight loss ????/

I eat them when out shopping sometimes or when craving sweets or chocolate !



Nancy ... that is so encouraging and I am so happy for you ! See you did better than you expected even !!
the weather has been better here !!

I really like the chocolate covered coconut bar. A bit lower in protein (only 5 grams) but 9 grams of fiber and 170 calories. Almost as good as a Mounds bar. I use them either as a treat or a quick snack at work when I don't get a lunch break.

Geesh. Just again looked at the box - indeed 16 grams of protein, but 210 calories. Just delicious though. Well worth the calories. I just count them like a shake if I haven't had enough that day, and never eat more than one a day.

I'm pretty happy too. I have the Atkins chocolate pretzel bars and peanut butter pretzel bars for 160 calories and 15 gms protein in them for my once a day bar. That seems to keep the munchies at bay.

Hi, thanks so much for your advice. I went out of town this weekend and was able to eat out and stay within the guidelines. I am just finishing week 3 and am still loving this diet. I hope everyone else is having success too. The weather has started to warm up and helped me get excited about walking. I love spring.

hey Nancy

I eat out a lot and yes I do eat grilled chicken salad !! I also eat grilled chicken breast with side vegetables ! Almost all restaurants that are chains now have nutritional info available online. I like to look up ( if I know where I will be eating) their nutritional info and keep in lines with the guidelines for an entree.... something around 300 calories with less than 10 g of fat and more than 10 g of protein !!
If I eat at a fast food place I nearly always order a chicken sandwich if its NOT BREADED and a side salad. I also have ordered a small childs hamburger ( no MAYO) and a side salad. I will sometimes eat my fruit before or carry it with me !
Subway has MANY MANY good choices.... backyard burger has an EXCELLENT blackened chicken salad if you like spicey
wendy's has salads,,,, Dairy Queen has salads,,,, sonic had salads at one time ????
Cracker barrel has vegetables......
I like to order grilled fish too if I can !!

Hi all
I am also 56 years old and have been married for 37 years. I love to read about your successes. What do you do when you eat out? I'm scared to go off plan but I don't want to take an entree to have them heat up. I have been just eating before I go somewhere and then just pick at a salad or something. Do you think a grilled chicken salad would work?

Thanks, Nancy

Hi Everyone !!

the weather is MUCH better here this week and I hope to walk outside for the first time this year today !! YEAH and YIPEE for that !!

Karen I am 54 and have been married 26 years also. My husband and I LOVE to eat out so it stays a challenge for me always but I have done very well on The Simple Diet (TSD). You can do this and it IS possible !! I love adding fruit to my greek yogurt and DR A says you can have greek yogurt once a day in place of a shake ! I always get the vanilla one and add various fruits... LOVE blueberries when in season !

DasyDUCKY you are just doing emoticon


emoticon and emoticon
I think it took me a lot longer to get my weight to start coming off ( 3 weeks)
I think my body did not believe me that I was serious this time !! HA HA !!


Anna - so glad that you may get more hours at work !! Hope you are doing alright !!

I am still struggling to get back 100 % !! Don't like that Ive gained over winter so time to get moving !!

TSD is definitely doable. Remember to get in your freggies and your walking/exercise. And don't set your goals too big to start with. My losses weren't anywhere near as dramatic as the book, but I have lost almost 30# in just over a year. (November-February plateau finally broken) Thanksgiving- Fat Tuesday was a bit rough.

Get enough variety in your food choices so that it doesn't get too boring. emoticon



Things have been busy around here and I got news last night that I might be getting more hours at work this week, so I had better get busy around the house today and get as much done as I can.

Good morning ladies (I didn't see any men posting) - I got the Simple Diet book in the mail last night and skimmed through the whole thing. Looks very doable.

I'm starting today, and will closely read it in the next week.

I am 56 as well, work for a dermatologist, and have been married 26+ years and have two boys, 22 and 24. My husband has diabetes, and I'm trying to find something he could do, but I need to have success before he'll even try it. I know him after all this time. I also could stand to lose about 45 pounds - but that seems daunting, so I'm breaking it up into chunks.

Good morning, It is so fun to have other people that are on the same journey. Tomorrow will be two weeks since I started this diet. I am still loving it. I am down 9.4 lbs and have started walk/jogging. I have never jogged in my life. I am having to do my exercise in a couple of chunks during the day though. I am 56 and have been overweight most of my married life. This is the first time I can remember that I really feel like I am going to be able to get this weight off. My favorite thing I've found is eating 100 calorie greek yogurt in the evening instead of a shake. It's like having a treat. I am having a hard time getting all the fruits and veggies in though. My very favorite candy is Hershey hard coated easter eggs so this is a challenge but I keep telling myself that they are still going to make easter candy next year and I will be able to eat a couple of pieces then when I am at goal weight.
Good luck to you all. We can do this.
I am so inspired by you all.

Hi all. Hope you are doing well.

I closed last night at work and opened this morning. Hope I have enough energy when I get home to do something. I really need to get some cardio in and I rarely have the energy on Sundays.

Having trouble keeping to the plan lately. Need more motivation.

I don't think the craziness will ever end. Trying to eat better, but it's hard. I've been getting 2-3 freggies per day lately. Can't seem to get more in but once in awhile. I really need to start taking the dogs out for a walk.

I hope you're all doing well. I started a week ago and am down 6 pounds. I really can't believe how easy "simple" this has been. We have a crazy life at our house and this works perfect. Of course on the down side my husband is doing it with me and has lost 10 pounds, grrrr. I tried a lean pocket sandwich for lunch the other day. It fit in to the guidelines and was so good. I'm anxious to go look at the yogurt protien shakes because I'm already a little tired of the shakes. I tried some strawberry cheesecake greek yogurt the other day instead of a shake, only 100 calories. It made a nice chage

I had bought a stouffers lasagna and then when I got it home and looked at it........ it said that the small box was a 21/2 servings !! OUCH !!! so beware ladies...... I was so disappointed ,..... i had looked at the calories and fat but NOT the servings since it WAS A TINY box !!
It was good and very filling but I will not buy it again !!

Sorry it's been so long. DDs home for spring break, friend in the hospital, over an hour away. Just so much going on.

Weighed myself this morning..... I've gained about 4 #. Need to get serious again.

The temp around here has melted all the snow except the snowbanks. It looks so strange after it being white for so long to drive past fields that look like the farmer has been out plowing already. It has to be from before the snow because the fields are too soggy.

I guess walking outside will start again soon.

Gotta go get ready for work.

We can do this!

hey michelle

yes DR A recommends 30 minutes of walking everyday till you work up to 2 miles a day.

What I do when on program (TSD) .... when I go out to eat.... I try to look up here on the spark people tracker the calories and fat grams to fit what I would eat for a frozen meal...... something under 300 calories with at least 10 g of protein and under 9 g of fat.

You can also go to the websites of restaurants to find out nutritional info......
taco bell has a fresco menu ( all lowfat)..... there I eat one or two beef taco's fresco style
backyard burger has a blackened chicken sandwich I eat with no mayo and tossed salad on side
Penn Station has an Artichoke sandwich I order with no Mayo
Burker king I order a small hamburger with no mayo and a tossed salad
Captain D's has a salmon salad I order with no breadstick
Cracker Barrel has chicken tenders and lots of veggie choices
Wendy's has a baked potato and salads

If you know where you are going to eat then be sure to look up info before going to see what some choices are for you. Going in with the knowledge ahead of time has really helped me. Sometimes I find out the very thing I thought would be good was indeed the WORST choice !! for instance taco salads are HORRIBLE !!
I have learned at all fast food restaurants to JUST leave off the fries and try to get some vegatables or to take a piece of fresh fruit with me and eat before I go or after my meal. Also almost always if you leave off mayo on a sandwich the fat grams SHRINK significantly !


good luck and I know you can do it !

Hi Christine!

Yes, yes it's all coming back to me now. It's funny I actually just saw a commercial tonight about a new yogurt protein shake with 12 proteins, it's like the yogurt... Light and fit or something....Dannon maybe? Wonder how it tastes... Not sure if it fits into the calorie range, but worth a look.
I am going out tomorrow with a friend of mine... We are gonna go for a walk and then do lunch. Any suggestions or advice on what to do when you go out to a restaurant? Probably a a silly question... But what do you guys do? Stick with some kind of salad? Otherwise going to start a walking regimen hopefully once the weather starts getting a smidge warmer and more consistent. I'm in PA. Isn't 20-30 mins of exercise also part of the plan? Is it daily?

I appreciate your help and I wish us both luck in getting back on the horse. Haha. Have a great night.

Don't you even worry about it !! I too have struggled something terrible this winter... everytime its cold ... all I want to do is EAT !!

On the simple diet (TSD)
you will need to eat 5 servings of fruits and veggies
3 protein shakes under 200 calories with at least 10 g of protein
and 2 frozen meals under 300 calories with at least 10 g of protein and under 9 g of fat !

that 's it !! no measuring , no counting !

I hope to get myself back in the swing of things also !! lets do this !!

Hi there ladies,

I am kind of new here... Not sure if you remember me, I was on TSD last year around this time and I did fairly well... Then as is always my issue, life happened and I lot my mojo. Well, I have decided to give it a go again... Starting fresh. I will need a little help starting out as honestly I do t remember the specifics about the plan. I remember eating the frozen healthy choice/smart ones 2x a day... But don't recall the calories or proteins to look for. I know you have to eat a lot of fruits and veggies and drink lots of water. If you guys could help me out.... I would be very grateful. I have let myself go and this long, cold winter hasn't helped any. I have roughly about 60-70lbs to lose... But frankly I'd be thrilled to lose half of that. I look forward to getting back on track and becoming a loser.... Lol. Thanks so much and I look forward to joining this journey with you all.
Keep up the good work!

well ladies

this cold weather and all this snow has done me in with my eating !!!

we received an inch or more of sleet and then 15 inches of snow !! We have not seen the likes of this in a long while !! Thank good ness our neighbor came over with a tractor to plow our driveway.... my husband missed one day of work because he couldn't get out of the driveway ! We also had large snow DRIFTS !! the wind blew it around and covered doors and steps and even up on my porch and places it never gets !! AMAZING...... all I can say is I truly feel for those people up in Boston !! I cannot EVEN imagine !!

Enough yacking.... I did want to let everyone know I found a new delicious choc protein bar that really helps with my Chocolate cravings !!
its called ATKINS Snack bar..... Triple chocolate bar. Its not all that big but boy is it CHOCOLATE !!! Its like a chocolate rice krispie bar with chocolate chips sprinkled on top andplaced on a chocolate cookie crunch base !!
12 g of protein , 3.3 g net carbs, 160 calores and 0 g of sugar , 9g of fat !

I cant' help it ... sometimes I JUST NEED CHOCOLATE !!
LOL... everyone I hope is doing alright ?
