    Ive been so tired the past 2 days but I think that might be normal when you start dieting. Its 10:30pm and im getting hungry so instead of getting a snack, Im going to bed!! Good night ladies!

      Arrhhh! Started off so well today, all healthy foods, lots of water, cardio after work, then the honey brought over chips and ice cream. Needless to day, I gave in. More cardio over the weekend I guess....

      Kudos to all you ladies on this journey...it sure aint easy!

          Ok I have a quesion for you ladies... I am having a hard time with snack. I am eating yogurt, string cheese. rice cakes. And am not hungry at all but dont feel like my weight has budget a bit. Would this be becuase I need to cut more carbs? Any suggesions on some snacks... oh also eat apples and peanut butter.

              I have been doing great on the eating part - until today when I picked Ellie up from school (she's 5) and she was begging me to go to MCdonalds playland b/c 2 of her other friends were going - I went in thinking ok I will just get a salad.....ended up with a cheeseburger and fries! OOPS!! - not great on working out - I just can't get my butt to the gym! I SUCK!

                Don't feel bad, we are human.

                A cheeseburger is better than a quarter pounder!!!

                Now get to the gym!!!

                  Sarah - It's only been 1.5 days! These things take a little time to register. Everyone has a different opinion about carbs - here's mine:

                  Carbs are totally fine. However that being said they have "abuse potential" - however if you cheese carbs that are high in fiber (whole wheat pasta/bread, quinoa, etc.) they will be more filling.

                  Are you counting the calories or points you're eating? Just make sure that you aren't eating too much or too little - either will slow you down. And on a last note here are some of my favorite snacks:

                  - Western Bagel Alternative Bagel w/ 2 Tbsp. low fat cream cheese (2 WW points total)

                  - Laughing Cow light cheese wedges (1 ww point) with baby carrots, bagel above, "light 'n' thin" wasa crackers (3).

                  - Salsa with "Light & Thin" wasa crackers - 3 crackers plus sals is 1 ww point.

                  - dry pint of cherry tomatoes (0.5 WW points)

                  - Progresso vegetarian vegetable soup - low sodium - 3 ww points
                  - asparagus sauteed in cooking spray with salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar (0 pts.)
                  - Sauteed mushroom and garlic with coking spray, salt, pepper, etc. (0 pts.)

                    Good job on working out! I should def get this DVD!

                    Okay I was really bad last night and I didn't go to the gym. I got home so late that all I wanted to do was pass out. On the upside, I didn't stay up late binging on snacks so that is good.

                    I have a healthy snack to add: I bought apple sauce, the kind that has no sugar in it and it has such little calories. It is a great snack when your craving something sweet. I also eat handfuls of almonds.

                    And for those girls that are eating oatmeal, I add some flaxseed to mine. It really helps boost your metabolism. I'm also drinking green tea, which is also supposed to help your metabolism.

                      Don't feel bad at all! McD's salads are probably just as bad as the cheeseburger!

                      Nutrition for McD's website:


                      cheeseburger: 300 calories (hey, that's not too bad!)
                      small french fries: 250 calories
                      ____________________________
                      Total: 550 calories

                      Now here's the shockers... Check out the salads! - and these are NOT COUNTING THE DRESSINGS!!!

                      Southwest Salad with Grilled Chicken 320 calories
                      Southwest Salad with Crispy Chicken 400
                      Southwest Salad (without chicken) 140
                      Asian Salad with Grilled Chicken 300
                      Asian Salad with Crispy Chicken 380
                      Bacon Ranch Salad with Grilled Chicken 260
                      Bacon Ranch Salad with Crispy Chicken 350
                      Bacon Ranch Salad (without chicken) 140
                      Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken 220
                      Caesar Salad with Crispy Chicken 300
                      Caesar Salad (without chicken) 90

                      Now for the DRESSINGS!!!
                      Newman's Own® Creamy Southwest 100
                      Newman's Own® Creamy Caesar Dressing 190
                      Newman's Own® Low Fat Balsamic Vinaigrette 40
                      Newman's Own® Low Fat Family Recipe Italian Dressing 60
                      Newman's Own® Low Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing 90
                      Newman's Own® Ranch Dressing 170

                      So my point is that a salad seems like the best choice but depending on what's in and what dressing you put on it you could end up eating 800 calories!!!
