Yesterday was fine but tonight will be a challenge in a resturant. I'll eat something filling just before dinner and drink 2 cups of water.

What helped me yesterday was eating high fiber foods and eating often, ever 2-3 hours.
Turkey Soup with beans and vegetables fills me up. Delicious!
My new discovered recipe of baked beans fills me up and tastes wonderful.
Smoothie, made with banana, ice, ff plain yogurt and soy milk fills me up too. Yummy!

Here are the turkey soup and baked beans recipes that fill me up:

TURKEY BEAN SOUP
From Taste of Home, Heartwarming soups, over 350 recipes & tips
Display until April 29, 2008
$9.99

I've made this soup today. My husband and I LOVED IT.
*** WW Core recipe
*** YUMMY!
*** Double the recipe and freeze in individual servings
*** So easy to make!!!
*** Great for the whole family
*** Heartwarming and filling soup
*** Substitute your favorite beans if cannelini and lima beans are not to your family's taste or they just don't happen to be in your pantry when you make this soup.

*** Next time I'll add one frozen bag of vegetables, such as cauliflower and carrots and any other "free" vegetables)

*** With the vegetables it will be a whole meal in itself. It will include:
Meat
Beans
Vegetables
Grains

8 servings

1 pound ground turkey
1 cup chopped onion ((chopped in the food processor, about 20 short pulses)
1 cup chopped celery (chopped in the food processor, about 20 short pulses)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 can (49 1/2 ounces) low sodium chicken broth
2 cups frozen corn
1 can (15 ounces) cannelini or white kidney beans, rinsed well and drained). I used baby butter beans.
1 cup frozen lima beans (I used 1 can, 15 ounces, navy beans.
1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili poweder
1/2 teaspoon salt (I eliminated the salt)
Shredded cheddar cheese, optional (I eliminated the cheese)

In a dutch oven, cook the turkey, onion and celery in oil over medium heat until meat is no longer pink.
Add the broth, corn, beans, chilies, oregano, cumin, chili powder and salt (and "free" frozen vegetables if you wish).
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until heated through.
Serve with cheese if desired.

Delicious!

I'm on plan today. I'm liking the way the scale is looking this week, so I'm going to keep working on it. :)

I have to miss my meeting & weigh in this week, so I have to be strong and keep going.

Persistence! Not Perfection!

ON PLAN JUST FOR TODAY! emoticon

Please join our one day challenge following your own plan.

ONE DAY AT A TIME!
WE CAN DO IT! emoticon

Let's celebrate being "ON PLAN" just for TODAY! emoticon

emoticon For accountability, please post how you did the previous day.

Yesterday is history,
Tomorrow is a mystery,
Today is a gift.
That's why it is called the "present".

Not on plan just for today?
Tomorrow is a new fresh day.
Congratulations on starting over.
Forget, forgive and move on!

Accept that sometimes itís going to suck. Despite your best intentions, there will be days when you fall into a bag of crisps. But long-term success is about persistence, not perfection. Itís picking yourself up when you fall, over and over again.
emoticon emoticon emoticon

*********************************

One Day at a Time

Whatever the goal we're pursuing,
no matter how rugged the climb,
we're certain to get there
by trying our best,
and taking One Day At A Time.

"Forever" is hard to imagine,
"the future" may seem far away-
but every new dawn
brings a wonderful chance
to do what we can on that day.

-Emily Matthews

........................................

START OVER

If you've started out in pursuit of your goal
And you've really tried with your heart and your soul,
but somehow things got out of control---
START OVER.

When you've tried your best to do what you should
And you thought this time that you surely would,
But once again, you didn't do good---
START OVER.

When you've worked so hard to follow a dieters way
And you fought to win a victory each day.
But one more time you went astray---
START OVER.

When you've tried so hard to yourself to be true
And do the things that you know you should do,
But once again you failed to come through---
START OVER.

When the road to success seemed much too long
And each temptation was oh so strong
And once again you gave in to wrong---
START OVER.

When you've told your friends what you planned to do
And trusted them to help you through
But soon discovered it's up to you---
START OVER.

When you know you must be physically fit,
But your hope seems gone and you're stuck in a pit
That's not the time for you to quit---
START OVER.

When the week seems long and successes few
And at weigh-in time you're feeling blue,
Remember tomorrow is just for you---
START OVER.

To start again means a victory's been won
And starting over again means a race well run
And starting over again proves it can be done
So don't just sit there---
START OVER
