I wish I wasn't such a slave to my scale. But if I don't get on it everyday, I eat way too much. If it stresses you out then don't do it. But I would do something else like stickers on a chart or calendar to mark days that you were completely on plan. Then that way you can still look at your progress over time. We know we won't be perfect, but seeing those stickers will help you see how well you are doing and how close you are coming to perfection. It will help on those down days too...to make sure you don't have too many in a row.

I don't know of any vegan candy that would really temp me...so this year I'm good for Halloween! I usually check the candy really well and then take it to school and put it in the prize box. Nina's teacher might be able to take if off your hands if Nina is willing to part with it.

Hi All.. Happy Sunday bounce 

I am tired today Sleep  but for a good reason.. I watched a show last night about the law of attraction.. really helped me to think how I am attracting this my way. lol In one part of the movie it talks about making a mission statement or board to help focus your life in the right direction that you are wanting .. I used to do this in my 20's ,.. even had planned about 6 months ago to do it .. but never got to it scratch  When I set it all up, the things in my life that are causing negative law of attraction.. yuck Razz  You get the point.

B) toast with jam and tea - I so need to purchase some frozen raspberries.. time to make freezer jam.. all out.
L) Salisbury steak with potatoes and carrots
D) soup with garlic bread

Nina and I have to run a errand and get some house work done.. so much fun.. For Sunday it will be fine. I wish you All a great day!!

Have a good Wednesday!

I saw that you said you got the 80 bite app earlier in the thread. I also have that, but I like the Eat slower pro app better.

Also I like Happy Scale its free, and it cuts our weight loss goals into small chunks and shows a moving average for weight loss.

Can you tell I use my iphone a lot? Laughing 

I noticed we are close to the same weight. What is your goal weight?

You can see how my day is going on my other post today.. I have been updating it.

I have been thinking that I will drop 5 bites every week till I am at the 10 the diet requires.. slow and steady. I also will have one cheat snack night to help keep me from binging.. Nina and I have games night and or movie night once a week.. we have snacks .. chips, pretzels or popcorn, veggie and fruit plates. Pizza every once and a while.. so I want to have a day once a week to have a extra no count snack night. Lets see how all of this goes.

I am doing great on the 30 bites.. still have 6 left and I am feeling good.. bounce bounce bounce 
I can see I might get away with 24 bites today.. that would be great.. I will see..  cheers

I did not have my last 6 bites.. to my surprise I was to tired and just wanted to go to bed. I happy.. one thing is though I still have not had a movement in the last few days so I am feeling a bit backed up..  I chose this morning to WI just to see if I am making progress and I am 203.. my tops are loser again.. I guess I was up higher than I thought last week.. lol eeeek Shocked 

B) egg on toast with tea - 5 bites
L) wrap - 10 bigish bites
D)
sn) not sure

I am going to stick to no more than 30 bites.. if I can I will drop 5 again today.. was so easy.. This morning though I woke up sooooooooooooo hungry lol affraid  I enjoyed my egg on toast.. was a good filler.  My work is getting even busier so this will help me to stay away from the kitchen..    bounce This cold/flu is giving me grief.. oddly I just can not get any energy back.. I could just sleep all the time. Sleep  

k.. before I fall to sleep I am going to get back to work.. Have a great day everyone!!!

Isnt it great how easy it is to just leave those last bites and go to bed? Ive been going to bed hungry alot, and that is Bob Harpers skinny rule

quote
With “Rule #18: Go to Bed Hungry,” you can get a jump on weight loss tonight. Your body will respond. Denied fuel for more than five hours, your body will start burning its own fat and sugar. That means that if your dinner was at 8 p.m., you’ll be burning fat by 1 a.m.]

we have to get through these fat numbers to see the skinny numbers! Yay! One-der-land here we come~bom bom cheers bounce

Wow its Friday already.. Nina is home on a profi day.. it is grey and rainy out.. but I feel pretty good considering. I got up and baked some bran muffins and chatted with my husband.. Was a pleasant morning. Last night I talked to my girlfriend and told her I had not lost anything since she was last here.. She was not happy.. lovingly she gave me grief..lol .. I just have to remember to never give up and keep on going.. and that is what I am doing.

B) 5 bites bran muffin and tea
L) 5 bites chicken devan
sn) 5 bites apple tea
D) 5 bites chicken devan
sn) 5 bites apple dipped in pb

This is 25 bites but the apple is only 50 calories at most.. what I love about apples is their fibre .. filling.

k.. back to work I go.. have a great day everyone..

You go girl! NEVER give up!  If you don't first succeed try try again. It takes me false starts before I can start losing good. In fact, Ive already had 3-4 false starts scince September!


25 bites is good, apples are good for you too!bounce bounce bounce bounce

I agree...go to bed hungry! I never feel hungry after lunch...but after dinner I leave the table hungry and that's when I really know I've done good. If you're hungry, you'll lose weight, right?

Sorry, I have been unable to log in...some kind of computer or internet glitch. Even now I can't hit the "forum" button. I have to go in another way.

I'm glad you are doing well and with the way you space out the 5 bites, you are leveling your hungerstat and that is something I really believe in. Keep the portions the same no matter what you're eating and you will be fine.

Ok.. so my one week tweaking is done. I think I found the right rhythm for me.  With the 5 bites I was so hungry in within 2 hrs.. had a headache every day.. eek ,.. made working a mess.. With the 10 bite it was much better .. hunger came around the 4 hr mark and a cola could push me to a later lunch or dinner. It is 30 bites but I am losing. Very Happy   So that will be my plan.. now how to achieve the no diet feeling.. that is where snow's idea of half a cup for 5 bites comes in. I will use a 3/4 cup for the 10 bite. I have a ramekin (as you all know) that is exactly that. When I go out for a meal I will just stick to 10 bites.. cheers 

My holiday was shifted to March due to to many Author Events we have booked.. So early spring we are getting it planned. This gives me back a two months from my nonsenses's lol.. I know I can do this.. just got to do this.. Twisted Evil 

B) bran muffin  and tea
L) casserole
sn) tea
D) wrap turkey

It so nice to see the weather in cooling off as it is very easy to walk in. I am going to have to pick up a good polar fleece this week and some winter boots also.. The only problem that also is coming is the ice. Nina and I often drive during the icy time.. then comes the snow.. yay.. back to walking.. I really want to feel fit again. I am doing nothing about it though.. so that has to change.. and it will. I just have to make it happen Twisted Evil 

K.. it is saturday.. cleaning house day.. wahooooooooooooooo! LOL Not.. Razz  Have a great day all!!

Update.. I also forgot to mention I will only eat when I am hungry also.. its 1:30 and I am just starting to feel a bit hungry.. so 2 is going to lunch today. Yay Have a great day!

Whatever works for you, works the best!! I completly agree about not depriving ones self sooo much that they cant stick to it. Its better like you said to do something you can still lose and yet it still is cutting back portions!!!!bounce

I agree, I prefer measuring...then you can have as many bites as you want. I take a lot smaller bites with the food pre-measured. Now, if I could just discipline myself to do this over the weekend all would be well!!!!

Let's have a great pre-measured week!!!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Eating at night is also a problem for me and I still haven't found the solution to stop myself wanting food although I'm not hungry.scratch 
But 2 weeks ago when I sticked to the diet, I didn't feel like eating at night, so maybe that's the secret.Question

Claire thank you so much for your wise thoughts.. I am sure my night snacking will not go away, but I might be able to work it in so it does not effect my weight goals. Very Happy 

I know I have to get moving more. I have been trying this without weight loss so I get I have to do this now. It is getting really icy out side in the morning so walking is dangerous.. once the snow comes then it gets easy again.. but that black ice.. eeek.. so I am going to do what I do not love but do not hate Laughing  I have body pump dvd's that are training ones from my sister in law who teaches the class in Germany. I pulled them out and dusted them off.. ordered the appropriate weights,.. should all be here come November 1st (if not sooner). Building muscle is huge for reshaping me. I am not 20 any more.. or 30 or even 40.. I'm 45 so I need all the help I can get.. lol. I also am going to start up with my Wii fit dance. Time to shred the weight off. I own these things and they just collect dust.. time to do something about it.

body pump 50 min program burns 800 calories for me (being up at 200+) 500 when I am at goal..
wi fit dance - 30 mins 380 for normal size person.. so maybe 500 for me

I will alternate the two, starting tomorrow with Wii. I will not workout during the weekends.. those belong to me..

Food.. I will have a adjustment here. As I will be working out I will need to eat 3 -4 times a day. I know that 10 bites is just under 1 cup, my plan is to cut it in half. My menu will show the example of what I mean.

B) Half a muffin and tea
L) half serving chicken stew
sn) tea
D) half a baked wrap
Night snack) if it does not fit in ramekin I can not have it.

If I go to the movies there is no way I will not have a full bag of popcorn.. (small) That is once to twice a month.. Cool 

This will allow that night snack.. keep me well within my cals .. around 800. Plus if I stick to it I should she my cute butt coming back soon bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce  lol! 

Do not let me off the hook ladies.. Ask me how much I burned a day.. I need you to really get on me or I know I will shut down and not do it. I will WI every 1st every month.. no more daily so I do not get discouraged again.. here I go! cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers 

Have a super duper day All.
