    I'm having my colonoscopy on Thursday, so it's light eating this week for me and clear liquids on Wednesday, hoping it works as a small reset and I get more motivated.
    So true, I will suffer in my tight jeans while I get my act together! They are a good reminder. We've got this!

    jerzey,
    I needed to hear this--especially the "being gentle with ourselves." Funny thing is, I am so happy and proud to be eating the way that I know that I am supposed to. My clothes getting tighter was my kick in the butt. I had to spend a lot of money to buy clothes when I lost weight, and I refuse to buy clothes in a bigger size again. We can do it!!!
    B: 1/2c. oatmeal, coffee
    S: small piece of cheese, 4 crackers
    L: 1/2c. chili
    D: 1 c. chicken noodle soup
    S: 80 cal greek yogurt w/peanuts and raisins

    For all you veggie-avoiding sleevers, below for your consideration of some low-calorie, high-fiber, sugar-crave-killing, nutritious, delicious foods:

    Mini cucumbers, 1/2 cup - 8 calories!

    Arugula, 2 cups - 10 calories!

    Cherry tomatoes, 9 large ones - 27 calories!

    Walden Farms dijon dressing, 2 tablespoons - 0 calories!

    Sugar snap peas, 4 ounces - 15 calories!

    Zucchini, 4 ounces - 20 calories!


    And there are more, so many more veggies and dressings like these!

    Morning all! It's actually kind of nice in NJ for a change, not so cold and was really sunny earlier I've been really trying to eat more mindfully and so far, so good! I survived the weekend without gaining even a pound; which is unusual for me...lol... I'm going to Key West at the end of February, bought a new bathing suit and am determined to wear it proudly! Man, 8 years ago I would have never worried about wearing a bathing suit proudly, I would have stressed over the fact that I had to put one on; my how life changes after bariatric surgery!

    B: non-fat plain Oikos Greek yogurt, toasted flax seeds, berries, and small amount of granola
    L: 3 ozs. chicken on small side salad w/balsamic/olive oil
    D: meatloaf, roasted broccoli, tablespoon of mashed potato that I'm making for my husband
    S: Yasso frozen fudge yogurt bar

    I hope everyone has a great day!

    I'll chime in ... a bit randomly, but nevertheless ....

    Breakfast - my usual ... two nonfat lattes and GNC Lean 25 chocolate shake

    Lunch - Healthy Choice Korean power bowl (yeah, they're processed frozen meals, but sometimes they fit the bill because they're easy-peasy, nutritious, have lots of protein, veggies and whole grains, and are low-cal)

    Dinner - 6 ounces sauteed FRESH shrimp, a cup of sauteed broccolini (with fresh garlic) and a glass of chardonnay

    Dessert (coming up later) -- 3 Ak-mak crackers, 1 ounce of Brie, and a sliced Honeycrisp apple

    And for those who care, total calories = 1,485, 96 grams of protein, 112 grams of carbs, 60 grams of fat (mostly olive oil and butter)

    Thanks for "chiming in", Ann...lol... Love your menus

    B: small 2% cottage cheese container w/fresh berries
    L: 3-4 ounces of salmon on salad w/cucumbers, green pepper, chick peas; balsamic dressing (2 tbs.)
    D: not sure, going to a local club to see a favorite band with hubby and a few great friends. We order a few small appetizers as 2 other ladies are patients also We share and 1 dirty martini to get the "party started."
    S: might consider the dirty martini my snack but no snack as it will be a late night and there's work tomorrow!

    Have a great day everyone and I'm considering dancing tonight as a "fitness class", how's that for rationalizing.
