You eat so healthy! from all food groups with great veriety of foods. Great proteins, many vegetables, lots of water. And your exercise routine! Wow! Good for you!
The way you handled your hunger was excellent.
All of the above explains why you're so successful in maintenance.
I'm learning so much from reading your answers.
Only if you have the time, can you please post again the healthy guidelines answers? other members will benefit from it too. Thank you.

1 cup of blueberries is one serving.
Quinoa is a whole-grain. It doesn't belong to the nuts and seeds group. Quinoa is the only grain that contains full protein, I think...

Today I'll eat fish, MORE vegetables (thank you, Nancy) and exercise in Curves (thank you again, Nancy).
Today is a harder day for me. I still tend to eat MORE after my weigh in in WW. I'm working on changing this pattern. I'm getting better at it but it's still a challenge.
So my challenge for myself today is to eat up to 25 points today (20 daily points and up to 5 weekly points)

3. COMFORT ZONE AWARNESS: Am I hungray, satisfied or full? : I did let myself get too hungry yesterday. I went to the store and didn't eat my snack before heading out and got hungry on the way home. I drank some water and grabbed some baby carrots to hold me over.

HI all,

I hope you all are doing well. I just got back from a long weekend in CHicago. Our daughter and son-in-law are in Chicago with our 2 beautiful grand dughter 2&4. We had a great time with the little sweeties. Hard to leave them but good memories came back to PA with us.

Mimi that is a good idea to follow the healthy guidelines. It is the best way to stay O.P. and focused.

It is always good to have a freah start and get back to staying motivated and motivating each and every one of us team members.

Have a great O.P. day everyone. REMEMBER to take it 1 day at a time & follow those guidelines.

Dot

GOOD HEALTH & HAPPINESS TO YOU ALL, DOT

Mimi,
I believe this is the only way to keep with it. I think I even noted something along the lines of how the basics provide the foundation of a healthy lifestyle in one of my blogs. Your consistency and the example you provide as you make this part of your daily routine is an inspiration.

That is my Lenten discipline every year: back to the basics of a couple of programs including WW. It is always worth the effort.

Getting back to the basics is a great idea, and very important. Time to get back to them myself.
