This week-end I would like to stay away from
sweets. Sugar seems to be a trigger food for me.

And I have a coming home party to go to.
A friend's son is coming home from the Navy and
is going back into civilian life.

Glad to have him back and in good health.

I need to try and eat fruit instead of the bad foods,
like sugar.

Here we go again this weekend with the Chinese food. We are meeting friends at a restaurant. Luckily, I think this restaurant has a Sesame Ginger Salad on the menu. If I order this with the dressing on the side and stay away from everything else, maybe I can keep away from all those bad carbs.

Granny, I wish my husband would join. I know he would enjoy it and get good support. But he seems to be out there on his own. He really loves food and cooking, almost obsesses on it.

Hi Sheila

Well I love chinese food, but my husband won't even
look at it. Therefore, chinese restaurants are out.

He loves italian food. Anything with tomato sauce.

I bought a cookbook for tomato sauce only. It's shaped into a jar of tomato sauce and only has recipes in it to cook tomato sauce.

He loves pasta even better, so I try to get him to
eat whole wheat pasta. He is getting used to it.

I also had him join sparkpeople. He's lost 15 lbs
already. Men always lose fast.

But he still has a lot to go.

He is a very picky eater, but he loves junk food, and
his pasta.

My weekend challenge this weekend is that I am going
to a college graduation party.

I think I'll just brouse the table before I put anything in my mouth. I don't want to trigger an eating binge.

So far so good on the weight loss for me though.

I do try to exercise by walking everyother day, for
at least 3 or 4 miles.

Have a great weekend.

Love,

Gayle

Hi VA

Actually, I was craving popcorn the other night.

I think I actually needed some salt.

I ate the Quaker Popcorn rice cakes. They satisfied my craving.

My ww leader said that the reason I was craving salt was becasue I wasn't getting enough liquids with all the exercise I have been doing and my body really craved salt because the body was trying to keep some
of the liquid that I was drinking.

Hope all is going well for you this summer.

Love,

Gayle

Actually, Virginia, house work is exercise. After they rebuilt part of my roof last week, I had a lot of cleaning up to do. And I can still feel it.

Sheila, Good on you. You did a great job. I know what you mean about buffets. My hubby has a favorite oriental buffet also. Yup a plate of salad to start is best isn't it? You should be proud. My hubby is doing better cause it has to fit on one trip. He goes about once every two weeks. I don't always go with him however. When it comes to food he will go alone. I am stuck again so my challenge is to stop the snacking (I watch the calories but still...) popcorn at night. And get back to regular meals and more active days. Actually my whole life is a weekend. I guess I need to make housework my job hey?
LOL
Blessings

Another weekend challenge.. My husband wanted to go to the Chinese Buffet and sit and talk and EAT.
I had some chicken broth. Then I filled my plate with lettuce/salad stuff, shrimp, salmon, and 2 strawberries. I ate slowly and then let them take my plate and utensils away. Whew. it was hard.

Hi Sheila,
Glad to hear you are on the mend. I think we want to comfort ourselves in the old wayswhen we are ill. I am looking forward to getting home. Am missing the D.H. a bit. We talk often but the good thing is I get to visit my grandson on the way home. I have never had a lot of close friends and my dearest friend passed away last Nov. But I am really getting into "the secret" that has gotten popular from the Oprah show and have found a new friend through my brothers friends here in Florida. this new friend has a chart very like My passed friend "same birthday two years younger." She is a student of astrology for a long time, a hair dresser, and traveler, artist. We bonded almost imediately. I had asked for a haircut and a friend like Sharon. amazing. My chart is cool today and the lack of close friends is the planets all below the horizon I would say. I am kinda private, scorpio stellium, neptune sun. I meet people much easier now but am starting all over with friends. I have email friends now for years before Spark. I expect I will have more from here. I hope to get walking after the weekend so feel like I will be back on track. I hope you can enjoy that soon too. I think you are getting the tail end of our last cold spell hey?

Hi Virginia,
The voice is slowly returning. I do find that I am more vulnerable when I am not feeling well. But all in all, I did OK yesterday.

By the time you return, it will be warmer. Your weekend fascinates me. It sounds like a very social time with many people who really like you. Are these fellow astrologers or just long time friends?

With my strong 8th house trine Neptune in 12 and Pluto in 10, there are few people close to me except for my family, my work friends and the people who I serve at work. How does it work for you? Take care, Sheila

Hi there, sorry to hear about the silent voice Sheila. This weekend has been a deal for me. I have just a week left here and all my friends are wanting my presence this weekend. I am juggling engagements. I was captive today enjoyed myself enormously but no lunch and dinner at about 8pm. Well I didn't overeat today, so that is good. I just like eating more regularly I think. Friends were vegans though so did okay. I may have to take a sack lunch on these visits. I am not looking forward to going back to the north lands but hubby assures me that snow will be gone when I get home. Hope you get better fast Sheila.

Oops I spoke too soon. The change from Florida to snowy CT caused me to get sick. Yuch. Laryngitis is certainly making me a better listener.

It was a little cool and rainy in Tampa. But when I got back late Monday night it was to snow squalls and 17 degrees. Brrr. Hopefully, this cold spell will pass by this weekend. Anyway, it was good to come home to our nice quiet and peaceful house in the country.

Hi Sheila,
Glad to see you are back. I have a son and daughter in law that are careful what they eat also. They are easy to convince to eat light. How did you find the weather. I think the weekend was good but Tampa got a little rain. Saharasota usually misses when it is predicted.

I am back from my mini vacation in Tampa. The diet challenge was really not a problem as my son and daughter in law are my South Beach diet buddies.

Hi there. I am vacationing and my dear sister-in-law loves buffets. It sure is difficult. I try hard to write down everything I am eating while I am there. I take only one plate and do normal salad and then around the edge I put very small bite size portions of things I like. It turns out to be a big meal but I am determined to eat like a normal person so I just eat light and chew chew chew. I even find myself not finishing some things I take. It is a lesson in how I used to eat and how I eat now. I might think I want to binge but so far haven't. I will be alone in a few more days and I think it will be easier to eat well. I am walking more so am glad about that. I just noticed your post. Have you checked the Moon position when times like the Buffet come up. It might be interesting.

I had been doing real well on my South Beach Diet. This weekend was hard. Last night I sat through a whole movie as my husband ate a large bag of popcorn. Tonight he wanted to go to the Chinese Buffet. I ended up OK, I think. I stuck with the fish, the vegetables and broth..but it was difficult. I found that the best thing I could do was to just stay in my chair and think about what legal foods I could eat when I came home. but I did enjoy his company.
