    I just got back from a lunch with a speaker. it probably is an obvious trend with my posts. the biggest challenge I have is when i'm not in control of my own meals. work functions and lunches out are always hard for me.

    but, i did really good as this meal. it helped that the speaker was vegan so we had really healthy options. I had a tortilla wrap with veggies & hummus, a rice dish & fruit. Usually these things include chips & a huge cookie. luckily that wasn't there.

    I did splurge at a work event yesterday. I had some pecan pie. but, i didn't have any alcohol and stuck to healthy food choices like spanikopida and quiche.

    i've been planning out thanksgiving meals. lots of good veggie dishes. i really prefer eating healthy. it just takes more effort.

      Ok, so I am just withdrawing from this one. I haven't been eating right OR exercising and I keep forgetting to take the picture while at home and then stress about it while at work. I think I am just going to bail out this session and perhaps when I mean business I will join the next one.

      I am trying to get Matt on board to just eat healthier in general, so perhaps I'll be ready for the next group.

        morgan, it must be hard having so many times that your meal isn't completely under your control. eating out is the worst! seems like you are doing the right thing with making the best choices you can make at these things. it can be way too easy to just give in to eating crappy food because it's available, so keep up the good work!

        congrats jill, and all you other LOSERS! hopefully i'll be back on the losing side next week!

          Beans have lots of protein in them... how about a vegetarian chili, a bean salad, protein shakes or adding protein powder to your cereal?

          There are all sorts of website with quick and easy recipes that will make eating protein a little easier for you... check out the sparkpeople.com recipe section... lots of healthy food there.
          I will have to check that site out. Thanks!

          Congrats Jill! Way to go.

              i can't believe how many things I've had since starting biggest loser. today was good though. I was able to pick really healthy stuff. probably healthier than i pack for myself.

              for the events i organize, I try to have healthy options. like a fruit tray instead of all cookies.

              i haven't worked out yet today. I'm feeling really tired & i have a headache. but, the biggest loser thread inspired me. I'm starting up a workout video right now...

                  I did it. I finished my workout although I was really not feeling up to it tonight. I felt good once I got going. It's getting started that is the hardest part.

                    I totally agree, getting it started is the hardest thing ever! Congrats on getting it done tonight!

                      Hey there everyone! So glad to see that the weight loss has been going so well. I know that I am disqualified now but that is alright. I have been gone due to a death in the family and now another family member is very sick and not likely to ever go homw again if she survives. Although I haven't lost any more weight during the past 2 weeks, I am happy to say with all the stress, lack of sleep and eating out/weird meal times, I haven't gained any weight. If you don't mind, I would still like to be part of the group without being a part of the group anymore. I am hoping to lose a few more lbs in the coming weeks, and could use the great support here.
