I just went back and read forward from June 13th. Such a lot has happened, good and bad. First, Keet I hope your DH gets good news soon. I will pray for him too. I am so sorry you have to deal with more stress. Holly, I'm glad that you are better. Lindy, welcome! Kim, no way!!!! That is an awesome loss! Congrats )!View Thread
I'm glad youre posting this Kim! Question I have never understood.... How do you know how many grams of fat, protein, carbs etc are in something? It seems really confusing if you aren't just eating out of a labeled package of food, but rather cooking something from scratch. Even calories seem too hard to figure out for me sometimes. What's your method kiddo? xxoo Kathy
ps, That's a ton of food today. Bet you aren't going to bed hungry!!!View Thread
Oh wow! I can't wait to see how this works out Kim! I could eat 1400 calories if I was bedridden? Right now I don't lose unless I am under 900 calories and it seems ridiculous to me. I went to a nutritionist at our local hospital a few years back and she told me I should eat 1500 calories. I didn't get any results but I am sure I was eating the wrong things. How I would love to be able to eat what you describe and lose some weight. Please keep me up to date on what is happening. And good luck!!!!
Debbie I remember Tomato. She disappeared just before I arrived but I read her posts. It is frustrating never to know what happens because we get invested in each other's well being.
I'm sorry for your loss, Holly. I hope the stress isn't too hard. It's so easy to eat when you are sad.View Thread
I'm exhausted just reading that Kim! I'm sure I'd be in tears too. Your kids are so lucky to have you as their Mom in so so many ways!!! Please remember to save a teensy bit of you for yourself!!! xoxo
I also had a bad day after hearing about Sharon. I'm losing too many friends in the last 2 years. I remember Barb and her disappearance. It bugged the heck out of me too. Let's decide that she's fine and she and her DH rode their choppers on the PanAm highway all the way to Patagonia and are living in a hut, watching whales, no internet, and drinking Dos Equis that the carried in their saddlebags all the way from Mexico. They'll have some Argentinian red as a chaser. Bye Barb!
Pasta tonight. No choice. I'll make a big salad for half my plate. YUM!View Thread
Aus, I think Kim must still be in Texas. Now when you meet up with that big salad, remember to avoid those thick creamy dressings like ranch and blue cheese. Numnumnumnum! Find one that you can see through if you hold it up to the light! You know, water with a little flavoring! Hahaha! "Enjoy" your lunch!View Thread
I'm sorry to tell you all that Sharon has passed away. She wasn't active here the last year, but we joined here at about the same time and she was a very enthusiastic member of our group in the year prior. She had suffered from breast cancer in the past and when she began exercising she developed a difficult case of lymphedema that seemed to curtail her weight loss journey with us. I am so sad to hear that she lost her struggle and that we won't be hearing her voice again.View Thread
