Lunch for me is corn thins with Philli, vanilla yoghurt and chocolate mousse :mrgreen: oh yeah! Who said losing weight couldn't be delicious? ;)

Yummy!!! Sounds nice. :)
I enjoy the cheese corn thins, with a couple of those Laughing cow cheese triangles (left out at room temperature to soften) spread on the biscuits then sprinkled with bacon bits (dehydrated, very very low in calories) and topped with thick slices of tomato. And ALL FOR less than 300 calories....room for a treat!!! :wink:

You're learning Shelley!! Keep up the good work; enjoy your journey, eat moderately, eat well, exercise hard = WEIGHT LOSS DYNAMO!!!!! :lol: :lol:

The reason I actually got on to the corn thins was from reading your post about them! :lol: It all sounded so yummy that I just had to try it...but I do prefer my philli to cheese. I like cheese but I find if I eat more than one slice, I find it too salty. I'm really anti-salt, have always been that way, I don't know why!

It's all in the learning :) It's a big week ahead, time to make a dent in it! 8)

Having you tried the laughing cow (the light ones, not the regular) triangles????? They are soft and creamy, and about 25 calories each. If you leave them out for about 10 mins at room temperature they soften and it's like spreading ordinary cream cheese. You can use one triangle and it will spread across several corn thins!!! Or you can slather it on and use one triangle per corn thin!!! :lol:

The philly is nice on them too; I've done that, and yes it is goooooooooooooooooooooood :wink: :lol:

Oops almost forgot, and they're not salty like those wrapped cheese slice (yuck!) they taste like plastic to me, and so salty!!! :roll:

I was in a hurry...I'm older! When ever I got slack with my walking or jogging I would always imagine Death with his scythe chasing me down the street...it always quicken my pace! :shock: :lol:

DD Diva wrote:I'm not saying MY way or Kim's is either right or wrong, just customised to our own style and as long as you essentially do the "right" things by your body by eating healthy, moderate (portion control is important) then life is full of things that you can enjoy!!! Deprivation is the killer of motivation, and the cause of all weight loss failure!!!

Of cause my way is the right way!!!
How could it not be?....for me. :wink:
It's a bit like a computer. There are the basics (head right, food right and exercise right) and the rest of the details are just customising the settings to our preference.

I've been saying this pretty much all along as well; head right (first and foremost!), food and exercise right (goes without saying). There's no point doing all the "right" things like eating healthy and exercising lots if your food plan or your exercise regime aren't to your satisfaction, ie. they're too strict, too boring etc as this will play with your head, and once that happens, you lose focus, motivation and well.....we know what happens next don't we???????? :oops:

...setting yourself up for failure - that's for sure!
Why is it people do the same things again and again - and yet expect a different outcome?
I've never gone down that path way.
You have been through that routine a few times Josie...why do people do it?
Is it about doing anything required BUT change? I don't get it...can you enlighten me?

Answer is simple Kim, they don't know any better!
It can take many attempts to quit smoking before a smoker finally gives up the habit completely.
It can take a lot financial pain before a gambler learns to steer clear of the slot machines.
And so too can it take many attempts before an overeater learns that it's not just about how much they're eating, but why!!! And once you've figured out WHY you have to (yes, there's that word) CHANGE!!! :roll:
BUT....
Change is difficult for people to deal with, a one young lady on here said to me recently when I explained to her the system I use, people "freak out"!!!
Change is scary and uncomfortable, and and and .....
As I keep saying, MODIFY THE PERCEPTION, THEN CHANGE THE BEHAVIOUR not the other way around.
If you just change the behaviour without modifying your perceptions (how you view food, and it's place in your life) sooner or later you WILL BE REACQUAINTED WITH YOUR LOST KILOS!!! :cry:

Change from within rather than from without.

Easy way - hard way...human nature always wants to do it the hard way.
Banging their head continuously with a hammer until they finally think that perhaps if they stop hitting themselves it would be a lot less painful! :roll:

Well, after much consideration, I've made a decision to step away from the forum for awhile. Not to lose track of my progress and certainly not to go off the rails (not when I've finally got a firm grasp on things!). But to be quite honest, I feel their is a lot of negativity on the forum at present. Usually I can just shrug things off and go on and ignore it but this year has taught me that drama is not worth all the worry, irritation or emotion. I've spent up far too much emotion this year on someone who doesn't give a damn about me and I'm thoroughly over it.

Please don't think this is aimed at any one person, I assure you it isn't. It's little things adding up and snow balling. I cherish each and every one of you on this forum, you have all been here for me through some pretty rough times and I appreciate more than I can convey here! And I'm certain I will see everyone thrive in their journey :mrgreen: I will be back and I will still check in from time to time but I need to live my life away from drama and away from the internet for awhile.

Stay well everyone and strive for the success you ALL deserve! ;)

I promise to be back (my journey is only just beginning!) but for now, I really do think it's for the best. I'd much prefer to just step back and regroup than end up a bitter, cranky woman lurking on the forums :lol:

It's for the best for me both mentally and physically. I hope to return and make you ALL proud with my progress :D

And I'm back! ;)

It's good to be back in the saddle...not that I've been extremely naughty as I've finally hit those 80's again and determined to stay there :) Was good to step away though and get my thoughts right and my body moving again! I have my goals in mind, I have my eye on the prize and determined to make the rest of the year really count :)

Let's do this 8)
