One day our younger son paid me the highest compliment!!! He said I could "make a gourmet meal out of the garbage". He really meant "out of the leftovers". And that is what I did today for DH and myself. I had leftover: brown rice green... Read more

Did I say we wouldn't go to the store this week-end? Did I say we would eat the food that is on hand? Did I say we wouldn't spend all the time cooking? Guess who has to eat her words??? I went to the store and spent $45.00. The big beauti... Read more

April 8th is the last time I recorded my weight. I am very happy that my weight never went way up except when I had some fluid retention. I tried various means to knock off those last two lbs., such as going to high end of calories, low end an... Read more
Metabolism Change after all these Years???
Saturday, July 11, 2009      2 comments

Do you think it is possible? Do you think my metabolism has actually changed after all these years? My whole life, if I went to a picnic and ate anything, I would gain 5 lbs. and then have a terrible time losing it. These last 9 days I ate w... Read more
April 8th to July 4th, a long time!!!

Having lost 48 lbs. in one year on Spark People, I was a bit discouraged that I hadn't lost 50 and reached goal. After all, I lost steadily without plateaus so assumed those last two lbs. would be off in no time. I just flippantly set my goal ... Read more

Should I Shake Up My Eating Plan???
Saturday, June 06, 2009      3 comments

I have just been thinking. Might I lose these last two lbs. if I shake up my eating plan? Maybe I need to follow another plan or just do something drastic. As it is right now, it will be all I can do to maintain at 1150 to 1450 calories a day... Read more
I Was Good
Sunday, May 31, 2009      5 comments

Yes, I was good tonight. Not perfect, but good. Most Sunday evenings we have a get-together at 6 PM and everyone brings finger foods. Before I went, I deliberately ate 1/2 cup cooked carrots and 1 banana spread with 1 Tbsp. peanut butter. So... Read more
