  • Read the label!

    10/28/2014 8:24:02 AM, by DRAGON-CHICK

    Recently I was looking for a healthy snack to replace chips, and I thought dry cereal might do it. So I looked for a whole grain one. Whole grain oats, to avoid gluten, to help with the detox. Right? Read the label!! Whole grain oat squares cereal? Sounds ok. Right? Ingredients: ... Read more

    I am trying so hard to BE back on track! This weekend I made crockpot oats, and I even ate them for breakfast yesterday and today. So far I've been mostly reasonable. I did have a ... Read more

  • Surviving Detox

    10/26/2014 7:30:43 AM, by DRAGON-CHICK

    Well, I'm mostly back on program, and I'm surprised that detox isn't as bad as expected. Or maybe it will hit today, with a vengeance, now that I've jinxed myself. I made my crockpot oats, I have salad stuff, and bags of veggies in the freezer, so I should be ok for a bit. I also have som... Read more

    Well, at least I'm not giving up after a big mistake, right? Starting over again. And trying to NOT berate myself over yet another failure. It was just a mistake. A learning experience. ... Read more

  • Back to Day 1

    10/19/2014 11:33:27 AM, by DRAGON-CHICK

    Yes, again! I went to NYC for a day this weekend with a friend and her kids. While it wasn't a feeding frenzy, I did make less than ideal choices. And the scale has reprimanded me suitably. It appears I've undone all the work of this month. ... Read more

  • Why is it so hard?

    10/12/2014 9:50:01 AM, by DRAGON-CHICK

    I want to be back on track. I really do. Why is it so hard to get back into that mindset? It's like I'm searching for reasons and excuses to have a "treat" !!! This too shall pass. I know the cravings will subside. Like, just in time for Thanksgiving! ... Read more

    I had a wonderful visit with friends in LA, but it was good to get home again and see how the remodel progressed while I was gone. I don't do so good when eating out a lot, but I can control what happens when I am home! Back on track!... Read more

  • Thursday Night Football?

    10/2/2014 11:11:11 PM, by MM11113

    What in the world is going on? I want to watch the 11:00 news because I am getting ready for a trip, and it is football? I wouldn't mind, but there has been more commercial time than game. I had another 'goal' type eating week, only thing is, I'm not that close to goal. So, I need some s... Read more

  • Two days to go

    10/1/2014 7:23:24 PM, by MM11113

    Tylenol helped me through the night and day today, so I could approach work better rested. The transition to my replacement is going very well. He will be a little lost, but I think he will do fine. I'm looking forward to the little vacation to California.... Read more
