Mimi,

What is in the salad you eat twice a day?
I need a salad to eat that I don't have a craving to eat something else when I'm finished. I love tomatoes and cucumbers, but what else do you put in it? Do you put any dressing and/or spices in?

Help!!

Last night was a disaster..........I knew what I was doing and did it. I felt miserable and guilty. Stupid to put myself in that position.

Today I knew that I had to get BOT.

When you'll be On Plan until 12:00 noon, that means you'll be already 720 minutes on plan!!!
WOW! That's a LOT of minutes!
Congratulations!

I'm going to exercise at Curves now and run errands.

To exercise!

Yesterday is gone. Today is the day to do our best!
I just finished making again the tomatoes/ cucumbers vegetables salad. This time it will last us a week, I hope...
I start my days now with a big bowl of this salad. I eat it at least twice each day. I'm not hungry at all.

Today:

Fat free plain yogurt with bluberries
Turkey chili with beans
sweet potato( my favorite is garnet)
vegetables
fruits
ONE big HEALTHY cookie
Turkey soup
Dairy
Water
EXERCISE!!!!!

Have a great healthy day

Persistence! Not Perfection!

ON PLAN JUST FOR TODAY! emoticon

Please join our one day challenge anytime, 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!

Evaluate what caused you to slip, the situation, and where it might have occurred.
See that you can learn from your slip.

REMEMBER!!!
Slips should teach you, not defeat you!


Accept that sometimes it’s 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. It’s picking yourself up when you fall, over and over again.

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

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

After night comes the dawn.

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

emoticon I saw the "NECKLACE (CHAIN) GAME" somewhere and I liked it.

I thought you might like it too.

You can make your own beautiful necklace (or a chain) by being OP (On Plan), using the emoticons provided here on SP.

*** You can also play this game for one week at a time (or month...etc...) and build a new necklace every week if you wish (or a month...etc...)

*** Please feel free to make adjustments and changes to the "NECLACE GAME" as you wish.

Congratulations on being On Plan, and if not, congratulations on starting over!

NOTE!
Please read Rule # 3 below. It's an excellent motivating rule to stick to your Necklace game, which means: sticking with your weight-loss journey.


INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE GAME

1. For every day you are ON PLAN (OP) you put in your necklace (chain ) the letter D ( for a DAY). So, if you are OP for 4 days in a row, your necklace looks like that: D - D - D - D

It's nicer to use the "EMOTICONS"
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
2. Once you are OP for 7 days, you change it to W ( For a week) .
Example: If I'm OP for 19 days, my necklace ( or chain) looks like that: W - W - D - D - D - D - D
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
emoticon emoticon

If you prefer to wear a longer necklace, you can WEAR it this way too:( instead of a W for a week, put 7 "D"'S, like this: D - D - D - D - D - D - D-

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

3. If you are FULL MONTH OP, It becomes M ( For a MONTH). So, if you are OP 49 days in a row, ( on a 31 days a month),your necklace will look like that: M - W - W - D - D - D - D
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


RULES OF THE GAME .

1. It's a challenge for yourself , NOT A COMPETITION WITH OTHERS.

2. The first day you BREAK the necklace (chain), you start playing the game all over again , (only if you have used already all of your extra 3500 calories for the month : See Rule # 3), and build your necklace ( chain ) once more from the beginning.

3. RULE # 3 IS VERY IMPORTANT .
PLEASE READ IT !
IT IS A GOOD RULE TO HELP YOU STICK TO THE NECKLACE- GAME .
In order to learn NOT to be perfect, and in order To BE realistic,( we will always have days we are not OP) , YOU MAY HAVE ( if you choose to) UP TO 3500 EXTRA CALORIES each MONTH IN ADDITION TO YOUR regular diet.
You can still CONTINUE to built your necklace(chain)!

The idea here is that the extra 3500 calories amount only to 1 pound gain in one month period, while an average of 2-4 pounds loss per month is VERY reasonable with being OP.
You will still be AHEAD OF THE GAME at the end of each month if you need to add up to extra 3500 calories in a month, providing you are otherwise OP.

The second idea is that once you've built a large chain,( many days OP), you want to keep going building the chain,( rather than break it and start all the way from the beginning again), and rule # 3 allows you to do that , WHILE YOU CONTINUE TO LOSE WEIGHT.
4. Keep your own records.
THAT INCLUDES ALSO KEEPING RECORDS OF THE OPTION TO USE UP TO 3500 calories EACH MONTH. ( when we go off plan).
5. Post your NECKLACE (chain) every day.

I hope you enjoy the game.

Mimi
