Okay, I used my disappointment over the scale as an excuse to eat fast food. That didn't help at all. Moving forward from here.

Discouraged, but not giving up. Darn scale showed I didn't lose any weight this week. I tried really hard, but I guess it was one too many parties.

I've been on SP for 10 years, losing and gaining the weight over and over again. I want to make this the last time that I need to lose 100 pounds! We can do it.

Love that Dee going to print it and put it in my journal

I tried and tried to quit smoking and then in 2000 the whoosh of a lady’s oxygen tank in a waiting room scared me enough that I stopped smoking that day.

That scare or determination is what I am seeking now. It is getting easier every day and I seldom crash with a candy bar or cookie anymore but when I do I no longer let it derail me. To think I will never eat that type of stuff is unrealistic for me but it is within my power to control how often I eat it.

Dee, thank you for that lovely post. Problem is, I made that decision this past January and this is the longest streak I've ever had with my mind-set that I'm going to continue and never give up. I do really want this, but my control over certain sweets is lacking. Saying no, to well actually anything or anyone, has always been difficult. I'm learning, but slowly. I won't go back to pre-January eating habits. Your posts are inspirational, emoticon

Mary, you'll find your way. I read an article with advice from people who lost 50+ pounds. This is one of the quotes from the article: "Once my head and spirit wanted it as badly as my body needed it, that's when things really started to click." ~Amy T.

That's what people say, but I hope it's not totally true. I don't think I will ever fully turn my back on ice cream or chocolate chip cookies. A little mind-set and a lot of control. We all have the motivation and reasons for eating healthy, but I know I am definitely lacking control. I don't know how to gain control, but I'm trying hard. emoticon Will have to read more on that subject.

I just returned from the Smokey Mountains. I actually managed a little extra indulgence into my nutrition plan and still lossed a little weight this week. I keep breakfast light, fruit and yogurt, so that I had more to work with for the evening meal. I was more active then normal and thankfully the hotel we stayed with did have a pool. I stayed with an aunt and she was extremely supportive of my diet. I wish I had a sister to take a sister trip with. It sounds like so much fun.

Striving for strength and balance in mind, body and spirit!!

It's been like saying "no" to my inner child, only I have to do it out loud. Tonight, I sent her for ice cream with my husband. I did my 15 minutes of exercise while they were gone. I'm trying to eat only one meal out a day. It's easier to do that while we're staying at my house.

Thursday-Sunday, we'll be going to the U.P. (Michigan). She choose the hotel and it doesn't have a pool. Darn, I was counting on a pool to burn off some calories. There are some beautiful lakes and parks though.

emoticon emoticon We are definitely laughing a lot. Thanks for the help friends!

All great advice! Weight Watchers encourages fruits, vegetables, lean meat and fish, beans. Processed carbs, fats, and sugars are what they discourage (they count as high points). So if you stick to your healthy eating habits most of the time, it'll keep her on track as well. Just have small indulgences here and there, and you'll both do great without feeling like you're dieting! Most of all, enjoy your sister fun!!

That is so tough Dee - I was ready to splurge and forgo everything well we are out road tripping but my husband is keeping me in line. When we went grocery shopping today we only bought fresh veggies, fruit, and chicken for our motorhome trip. Then we were at a meeting tonight and someone mentioned that they thought I looked good and had lost some weight so that reinforced me to be smart on this trip.

I read on the other thread that you will be road tripping. Plan ahead with some healthy snacks that you can take with you. Remember that it isn't the food, it is the love. Avoid comments on eating habits. Probably more than anything, she wants to indulge without having to count points. Just eat healthy for you and if you need that extra serving, make it a freggie. Think light and fruity for desserts. Laugh your heads off and have a great time!!!

Kim and Laura offer good suggestions. Do Not mention diet. I'm sure she will notice how well you are eating, or notice that you have lost a few lbs. Keep your refrigerator clear of junk. Suggest walks, swimming, biking or whatever fun you both are able to do. Going out to dinner you each can make your own choices. Drinks, choose wine or sangria over frozen drinks (my favorite). Just have fun with her. Trust me, life is short. I miss my baby sister so much. Make happy memories! It's only 10 days! Log onto Spark when you have quiet time to help remind you what your trying so hard to accomplish. emoticon

I agree w/Kim. You can make some delist veggies and salads to go with every meal. Also at this time of year fresh fruit and melon would be great side dishes. Slice up tomatoes and still grill out meat and other summer fare. Strawberries with Angelfood cake and cool whip won’t kill the stats. Plan ahead for eating out. Go where there are good choices and if indulging, split a dessert. Best thing is to not talk about dieting. She’ll be making better choices if that is what is in front of her. If you know dinner will be a lot of calories then eat more veggies at other meals. She will not even know unless you discuss it. If junk isn’t in your house but delish Fresh freggies then it is already a win.

Dee, that is a tough one. But if she takes that time off will she really go back to it? I am not sure I would. Vacation isn't about the food. It's about the people. I think I would just make sure to have good choices for her and hopefully she won't realize she is really sticking to her plan. Even if she does decide to go off her plan you can always make better choices. I try to plan what I am going to eat ahead of time if I go out to eat. If you go to a burger place just go bun less. A lot of places will accommodate you and maybe if she sees you sticking to your plan she will decide to as well.

Brenda, I hope you have a stress free vacation!

Speaking of vacations... my sister from Texas is staying with me for 10 days. I just got my act together and began planning and tracking my meals. She's been doing Weight Watchers at home. Bunny wants to have a "Vacation Week" of eating. I don't want to go off my plan.

How can I get her to stick to her Weight Watcher's without ruining her vacation? If I can't do that, how do I prevent her from taking me into the weeds?

Woohoo! You've got this Dee! I'm proud of you!!!

I'm barely hanging on to my weight. Maintained again this week. I wanted to lose weight before vacation, but that's obviously not happening! Too many stresses right now with hubby looking for a job for 6 months, going on a long vacation in a week, and getting things done before we go. I'm doing my best for now, and hopefully things work out soon!

They look delicious! I didn't have the Sausage Egg McMuffin, but I allowed myself to stop for a Large Diet Coke while running errands.

Ladies... I am fighting a huge craving today. I absolutely love McDonald's Sausage Egg McMuffin and Diet Coke. I have a migraine headache and this meal always makes me feel better. (I know it's all in my head. pardon the pun)

I know there are healthier options. I know that cravings will pass. I know that I've been really good about not going to McDonald's and I lost weight this week. BUT... it doesn't matter, I still want it.

Since they are not as thick as tubes, be sure to go down a well worn path. Those usually have the sharp edges worn down. Otherwise I'm picturing a flamingo blowout before hitting the bottom.

Here are a few more ideas for you Dee:


If you can't eat it, slide it!


Ride the wild bull!


you know what they say - longer necks make you look thinner.....just saying.....


Go big or go home!

And finally - one worthy of a princess

I am always up for anything to do with flamingos. Biggest problem I can see with sledding would be getting down to get on the sled and getting up once you hit bottom but the in between would be a blast. Go for it!!

At what age do we start to look at the risks rather than just go for it and have fun?

We have a large sledding hill in our backyard. My girlfriends came over and said we need to have a sledding party and bon fire this winter. Have you seen those giant swan or flamingo floats? I've been thinking that they'll go on sale at the end of the season. Wouldn't it be extremely funny to buy a couple and sled down my hill in winter? It wouldn't be funny if we got hurt though. We could get hurt on a regular tube though. What do you think?

Love my diet mountain dew and McDonald's has the Best diet coke. I'm trying not to have either one I'm drinking lots of water and one Bai antioxidant infusion (1 g. sugar, no artificial sweeteners, 5 calories). I hope it's a healthier choice.

I did buy diet 7UP because my jello recipe called for it. No one asked for any though. I like diet 7UP for stomach aches. Diet Coke for headaches. I was addicted to Diet Mountain Dew, but now I don't have any in the house!

I know if I bring it into the house I will eat or drink it. I think you are giving them plenty of other options. Agree with Kim - just tell them you are trying to kick the habit and just can't have it around.

Personally Dee, I wouldn't. Most people will be okay with water if you don't have any to offer. And I am sure that they will understand if you tell them that you are trying to quit drinking it and don't need or want it in your house.

I've got a tricky problem. I'm working hard to eliminate my diet soda habit. I only have one diet coke in my refrigerator because it helps me when I get a migraine headache. I'm having friends over tonight. Do I need to buy diet soda in case someone asks for it?

emoticon yes or no???
I'm going to have wine, lemon water, and iced tea to serve.

I know - it is so embarrassing and people say "how did you fall" I don't know it happens so quickly. Had a friend fall down the steps on a cruise and kind of puts a damper on the whole vacation.

Ouch! I fell going down slippery marble steps last year at the Parthenon in Greece. Bounced on my booty and came right back up! It killed my replaced knee because it bent really far...it was tight and swollen through the trip and beyond. I alternated between ice and heat, then slowly bent it further and it's finally really good. Embarrassing as all get out though!!

I fell two years ago while on a cruise. Came out of the pool, walked a short distance and fell down for the whole world to see. I looked like a beached whale. It was so mortifying! Now I use a cane most of the time and walk very slow...always petrified it will happen again.

Oh, good for you Jill. My doctor just tells me there is "no magic" and I have to do the work. I know what to do, but I have a lot of excuses for not doing it. I will figure it out.

I'm starting over with two goals... cut down/eliminate my diet soda habit and get more sleep.

Any suggestions for me?

I'm with you Brenda. I did the whole falling can't get up routine at the movie theater last weekend. Just getting over my bruised foot.
