Are you starving yourself? Please share your secret!!
Have to love that point when pounds just drop off by themselves. ;)
Regular exercise is agreeing with me. Hope I don't break myself anytime soon.
I am using LoseIt to pay attention to calories. Like I didn't realize that my normal pb&j was like 600+ calories - not that I will change that, since I do love my pb&j.
Set goal for 15 pounds loss at 1.5 pounds per week. Gives me 1400 calories per day plus whatever I gain exercising, so around 1900 on exercise days, and not nearly enough on the others. May have to adjust goal, but right now, I don't feel deprived.
I loved Lose It! It really worked for me.
I need to use it again ... (she says as she eats chocolate chips 15 min before bedtime ...)
mmmm, we had chocolate chip cookies last night, will run today...
Was that cookies, Peggy, or just chocolate chips?
Just chocolate chips. Cut to the chase.
Peggy, I prefer my chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate chips, so maybe we should combine forces some day.
With the cookie, without the cookie, in pancakes, with a glass of wine, or coffee...it's all good. I support all your efforts!
Cristina, I'd say that's blasphemous if I weren't the potential beneficiary ...
Chocolate chip cookies are perhaps my favorite dessert, if they're soft & chewy. (McD's are good; so are Subway's.)
Jon's mom makes some really good chewy ones. I was delighted to see those just going into the oven when we got back from taking the cousins out hiking Sat. Yum.
I really need the weather to shape up so I can run again. Between delays that don't allow for a workout at work, and unsafe roads to run to work on, the cookies are starting to catch up with me!
You all keep eating those chocolate chips and/or cookies for me!!
I'm taking one for the team, Valerie.
Me too this evening! Comfort food for dinner - two bagels, one with creamed cheese, one with peanut butter.
I definitely stress eat. I was determined not to eat any chocolate chips today, but then I got a bad report about Samantha's school day, and out came the chips ... I think I feel better now ... :-)
My bad reports involve a 57 year old. Just when I think I am catching a break from drama and manipulation, a new email arrives. I tried 1/2 glass of chocolate milk, thinking that would take the edge off, but the chocolate came out soon after the bagels.
Beer and pizza. And a movie. And a snuggle. Much less stress now. Maybe chocolate chips in pancakes tomorrow morning! Goes nicely with bananas and walnuts.
I've been reading some interesting books about kids and school lately, and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to feel bad that I've got a kid who just "can't want to" do things sometimes. We would, too, if every aspect of our day made us feel like failures. Retirement may lead me to rebel against more than just the government bureaucracy!
