Monday, October 24, 2016      1 comments

One week ago today I started with the Seattle Sutton meal plan. So far, so good. According to my home scale I've lost 5 pounds this week. It will be interesting to see what the TOPS scale says tomorrow. I'm really impressed with the foo... Read more
It's Go Time

I am so disappointed in myself. I keep gaining and losing the same 10 pounds. I get motivated and do well for a few weeks, then the motivation wanes and I'm right back where I started again. I don't think there is anything about losing weight... Read more

I gained 1-1/4 pounds this week. I know exactly what the problem was. I was doing great until Sunday. My niece had gone to the state fair and brought me a chocolate dipped cashew nut roll, my favorite fair food of course. I thought about jus... Read more

I recently got a Vegetti slicer. It has two types of blades, spaghetti and ribbon slicers. A friend had given me several large zucchini from her garden. I tried a pasta swap recipe made with Vegetti sliced zucchini instead of spaghetti and it... Read more

We had a great TOPS meeting last night. I lost 1-1/2 pounds, and we had a net loss of 8 pounds. Wow, that's 3 weeks in a row with a net loss. We're on a roll. Since this was our last meeting of the month it was Move It Night. We did Ta... Read more

I know what the problem is with keeping my motivation level up. My plan doesn't include a very wide variety of foods so I get stuck in a rut eating the same things all of the time. After about a month I get bored. That's when old eating habit... Read more

I've been using my inspirational word keys from our Installation Of Officers Ceremony. I pick a word that fits how I feel that day and wear it. It's been helpful to have a visual reminder that's always there. I chose the success key because... Read more
To Weigh Or Not To Weigh Daily, That Is The Question?
Tuesday, August 18, 2015      8 comments

I think I've read all of the advice and arguments there are about weighing weekly versus daily. You shouldn't weigh in daily because your weight fluctuates from day to day depending on what you've eaten, or water retention. You become obsessed... Read more

Ever since I joined our chapter we always have our annual picnic the first week in August. Since TOPS headquarters changed the election of officers to July instead of the beginning of the year we decided to go with the flow and make the install... Read more

I was at my moms house the other day and it turned out to be quite an adventure. It all started when I took her little dog out to the back yard. She's a little 10 pound Havanese named Luci. I was sitting on the patio playing a game on my phon... Read more

Weigh in after SRD wasn't the greatest. It's not easy when you are eating every meal out for 3 days, although I don't think I did too bad. I wasn't surprised when I stepped on the scale and it was up 1 pound, not too much damage. I got right ... Read more
What A Difference Choices Make
Tuesday, May 12, 2015      5 comments

We had our first cookout for this spring last week. Nothing fancy, just burgers on the barbie with all the fixings and chips with dip. I thought it wouldn't be too bad for calories if I measured portions. Even I, as knowledgeable as I think I... Read more

Minnesota SRD was at Grand Casino Mille Lacs this year. Four people from our chapter went, and we had a good time. I enjoyed the speakers. My favorite was Wayne Vandenlangenberg. We saw him at IRD in Milwaukee last year. He was the Wisconsi... Read more
Pancakes Vs. Cheerios?
Monday, May 11, 2015      3 comments

Yesterday morning everyone was upstairs enjoying a Mothers Day breakfast of pancakes with butter and syrup, and applewood smoked bacon. It smelled delicious, but I didn't partake of it, way too many calories. I opted out for my Cinnamon Almond... Read more
