Aus, if you have a food scale you could always weigh your jammies and a pr of undies to know exactly how much to deduct from your AM weigh in.... Just a thought. I also reposted your reply, looks like someone at Wmd is right on the ball this am and has already unplugged the link to the double post.
Judy, Opposite you, my walking is usually inferior to my biking , unless I'm having a really good , light pain day. I hope you get to walk soon, though.
******** Good Morning Rainbow Brights!

I had a super tough time crawling out of bed this morning. I tell ya, I don't like getting up early. Had to do it when I worked hated it then and I still hate it. Ha.
ok I better get on the stick here. Weigh In - 189. The reason is, I didn't want to take my pjs off, too cold so thought I would start weighting with them on each morning. what cha think?

There is hope on the horizon. I know that there are quite a few peanut butter lovers out there that literally break into a sweat every time they eat it, but then worry about the calories and fats.
I have read good things about this product. Mix with water. I guess it comes out a bit "grainy" , my guess is it'd taste more like fresh ground peanut butter. But, hey! It comes in Chocolate too. 2 Tblsp is only 45 calories and is all natural and 85% fat free.
I have just ordered my first two bags tonight.
When I get mine, I'll tell you about it. Unless one of you runs out and can find it at a local health food store or Whole Foods or wherever.
Judy, you are making me smile with these new Rainbow pics. I love this one too.
Ok, so maybe I'm finally getting the hang of eating enough to compensate for my exercise..... maybe. I'm not dropping a lot, but it is finally coming down from my own serious Holiday indulgence gains.
While adding exercise I've been having such a hard time figuring out how much to eat to really make up for it. This has literally been a constant struggle since I gave up just walking the orig. mile as exercise. Initially the weight just fell off just by doing that, but now, I'm dealing with the added muscle mass too. Something for the newbies to think about too, I guess. Is that it is, for sure, trial and error when it comes to your own personal journey.

Looks like a lot of food...but believe it or not , I still come in at just under 1400 calories, then I have to take off my exercise output.... this is where I have had a bunch of adjustments. I just couldn't believe I had to eat this much to lose weight, lol
Yes, of course, Laura, take my recipe. I tried with cukes too, but for some reason those tend to take over and flavor everything. I was really surprised when this happened. I think I may try cukes with something like baking cocoa and stevia just to bury the cucumber flavor, lol.
hope you've been doing well. Haven't seen you on much.
I pulled a muscle in my back some years ago, Kathy. And I sat on the heating pad too. But when I went to the chiropractor , the one and only time I've needed it, he told me it's the worst thing to do for a back. Yes heat is good, but only in 10-15 min intervals every hour or so. If you just keep the heat on the muscles will contract and become even more painful with spasms. Just be careful. I want you to get better.
We are beautiful people. We may have been damaged by childhood, or even adulthood. We may have been damaged by our own actions. But every day that we try to make ourselves better, to heal, to "repair" the damage, we prove that we are not broken.
We are just in the process of becoming more beautiful.
