ENJOY yourself, this was one of my favorite holidays when my girls were young. I used to take them trick or treating, with our poodle (dressed up with a tu-tu or bride outfit) and we would go to the historic (really old) homes. The owners would really get into this holiday, also. Scary sounds and music and lighting were all around.
Thanks for the tip. It sure is easy to "over-estimate" a serving. Getting in the habit of portion control is key in losing and maintaining.
Must say NO to supersize anything!
Nice to see you around here. Today I went to a farmer market and bought cabbage, butternut squash and spaghetti squash. I got a big pot of cabbage soup on the stove, now. Made it with 1 onion, about 4 stalks celery, 1 can tomato soup, 1 lg. can crushed tomatoes, 1 head cabbage and low sodium beef broth. Been thinking about doing this for awhile. I will freeze some. This is a fav. soup to order when out, too.
P.S. I just took out talapia from the freezer for dinner. Any recipe ideas for talapia?View Thread
Thanks for the blog. Interesting stuff. I do find that I am eating more and more like Judy does. I have been on my journey since Jan., 2010. I finally stopped yo-yoing in my weight. But life is too short to never eat pizza, pasta, chips, or ice cream. So, I eat 2 pieces of cheese pizza (thin crust) and have a huge salad. I eat baked chips and try to limit portions (have ff sour cream and salsa for dip). Skinny Cow single servings almost every night.
NO feeling deprived or punished. Just eating healthier, feeling better and losing weight.
