Weigh In Day

I lost 1 lb!!! Not as much as I was hoping for, but it is still a loss none the less. My measurements are jumping around...I think it depends on how much I work on a certain area... when I do alot of sit ups my waist shrinks, but if I dont keep it up, it bubbles back out! hmmmm... I am still gung-ho about it , I feel good and am determined to get this done. In the same breath, I cheated terribley on my diet yesterday.. so no PD#5 today :( I dont know what gets into me, but whenever I KNOW I have to do well on my diet, I tend to want to cheat MORE... and yesterday I gave into the temptation...


UGH... I probably could have lost a whole other pound.. but ate it back on. Well..I am back on the wagon and today is going to be an outdoors day... the park, trail walk, and yard work. Hopefully, if the weather is as warm as it was all weekend.

Yesterdays food:

oatmeal and strawberries

NO EXCERSIZE... hmmmm, notice that on my PD's those snacks are filled in with protein shakes?? I really need to start packing a shake with me in my purse..

I am trying to get recipes together for Thanksgiving dinner. It was going to be a simple dinner with just me , the hubby, kids and father-in-law... but NOW we are having 12! people over... good grief. I am going to try and keep everything fat free (since I am doing all the cooking, that should be easy) If anyone has any good recipes they want to share please let me know!! I need some side dish ideas! OH.. and does anyone know how to make giblet gravy?? My husband is begging me to learn how to make it.. and I dont know where to start.(obviously NOT a fat free dish)

Hope everyone has a beautiful monday... and have a blessed day!

Hi Tigerlilly... too bad about your PD#5, but I know you'll get back on track. Just have to start over again, right? Congrats on the 1lb loss! I lost 1.5lbs, so it looks like we're in for a close race! As for the giblet gravy, I found a couple of recipes for you on

Hey, remember when 4 PDs sounded impossible? I have to say congrats on those! And a pound lost! YAY!

My Thanksgiving menu is so bare bones that I can't even suggest any side dishes. Just fill up on salad and veggies first before hitting the "good" stuff!

The lecturer at the Monday night Weight Watcher meeting shared a poem with us entitled "Start Over." There are a number of versions of the poem. The one she shared had to do with weight loss. I found it on the following site:

Thanksgiving and the holiday season is bound to be challenging. I think we have to be (1) prepared and (2) gentle with ourselves when our self discipline weakens.
