    OH, and everyone should buy "THe Calorie King." I may have said this before but I am too lazy to read all the way back through everything! IT will fit in your purse and tell you the calorie count of everything at major restaurants! EYE OPENER!
    My favorite type of vacation, a relaxing one!

        also - here is a tip i picked up from someone else ...

        "if you have already tasted / eaten a food before and you indulge in it just to indulge, (ex. lasagna) you are being a glutton - ask yourself why you are allowing yourself to make the wrong choices? you know what it tastes like, there are no surprised in the bag of chips, just fatty calories!"

        and this is about LONG TERM LIFESTYLE change, not a Diet or a quick fix and changing habits is uncomfortable and takes work.
        Girls we have to stay strong this weekend! It is so easy to fall off and revert to bad habits when we go out to bars, restaurants, parties, etc. Let's stay focused. I think if I go out and feel tempted I am going to call my buddy to talk me out of it. It will be like a sponsor for, AA excpet for food b/c let's face it, I am addicted to food!
        Thanks girls for the motivation!!

        Glenda you call me if you need me! I'll talk you out of anything!

        I haven't worked out yet today, I was so wiped out this morning I shut my alarm off and fell back asleep!

        I'm trying to tell myself to go get on the treadmill, but I have a feeling its not going to happen tonight, but I was moving all day at work today, I've eaten good and I will be up first thing in the morning working out.

        Good luck this weekend girls! I'll be checking in throughout the weekend, let me know if anyone needs help!

          My workout this morning was killer. The trainer kept me for one and half hours. Ugh! It was great though.

          I ate a healthy breakfast and lunch.

          I did get a light frap from Starbucks, but that's the only indulgence all day.

          For dinner I am making a nice roast with veggies.

          Here's to a great weekend!

              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.)

              Awesome this will help a ton! I am calorie couting and I am in my range that I should be eating and I am also working out. My only problem with snack is (well food in general) is that many things have gluten in them.
              I have celiac- if you have no idea what I am talking about LOL I basically cant have gluten... NONE (the protein found in wheat). You would think it would be awesome for a diet that I cant have bread, pasta, crackers, cookies, cakes, and on and on... But it is in many things so am pretty limited to what I can eat especailly snacks. So that why I wanted to get an idea of what everyone else is doing to broaden my horizons so to say. I know pretty much what does and does not have wheat in it so its not that I need suggestions about that, more like healthy suggestions!!

              Ok This was WAYYY longer than it really needed to be, maybe I just needed to vent!!!

              Also I will be more patient (promise Alyssa) I dont know why I seem to think I am going to drop weight right away!! And promise will try my hardes to to look at the scale.

              keep up the hard work ladies remember it will be worth it in the end!

                  Betsy, you can be my buddy! Just don't count on me on the weekends! I work 2 twelve hour night shifts so I am not really around. SO, here goes, you can do it! You took today off so get back to work tomorrow! Whenever you try to cheat tomorrow and Sunday, you can read this, it will have to hold you over until Monday! Good luck!
