Yo-Yo dieting
I'm right there with you. I set my RDI for 1800 and last night, was no where near it. Plus I had bailed on the exercise part. Keep trying. Keep planning. Drink your water (says me who is guzzling to make sure I get it in today). At night when you are hungry, go to bed if you can. There may be slip-ups, but keep trying. You'll make it!

Emotional Eater
Welcome to the club....I call it 'deceptive eating'...it's tricky! It makes you think you want food, when you really don't. ;)

FS - so addicting!! Anyone else having problems turning this off?
I leave it up at work...it's kind of like I know I have to account for what I'm eating...so unless I'm done eating for the day it's up! Also, I love the blackberry application as well. I think I use it more than I do to call/talk to friends!

come on people!
Okay, so I did weed through my buddies to the ones that are still active. Underscore you have made a difference in the way I looked at the buddy system, and I have taken a moment to email each buddy, with the exception of my husband. ;0) Thanks for reminding me how to maximize the support available here. Have a great evening! MightyFull

come on people!
Hello everyone...I thought about weeding through my buddy list, but then decided not to. I guess I have maybe the mentality as others do that my journal is my contact..ie, my 'news feed' to the world. I write it expressing my successes and my failed attempts. If anyone reading it feels okay to comment, great. If not, perhaps by reading the journal entries, I may have unknowingly inspired someone, or at least let them know I struggle too with weight loss. I do periodically request a buddy...only to never hear from them again. But you know, it may not be a good time for them. They may be struggling so much on their own, they don't have anything else to offer someone else. I give them a day or two and then delete the offer. I always think it is cool to get a buddy request. I always wonder what it is about my profile/bio that intrigues them. Is it we have the same current weight? The same/similar lifestyle? Or was it something truly random. Anyway...I chat with those who chat with me....is that wrong??? LOL, MightyFull

anyone using blackberry app?
I use my blackberry application all the time. It doesn't allow you to add new foods or access your cookbook - have to do that from computer. It is a huge help in tracking what I eat during the weekends and when I'm at home.

Need help planning a meal - low cholesterol
Hi - we're having some friends over this Saturday, who are working hard on lowering their cholesterol. We'd like to serve up a dinner meal that would aid them versus hender. We have boneless, skinless chicken breasts and/or hamburger patties. I really would like some suggestions on either websites or things you've tried that are good. Beverage Salad Main Meal Sides Dessert Can you help? Thanks! MightyFull:)

Work late...get home late...to work out or not to work out - that is the question!
Hi, I find there are not enough hours in the day...I have more than enough projects to work on at work. I end up spending more time at my job than I do with my family. I half-heartenly want to work out in the morning, but I LOVE my sleep - and usually function better with 7 hours of rest. However, lately I don't get it. Would appreciate suggestions on exercise to reduce stress, and that can be done in a short amount of time...

TURBO JAM
I have Turbo Jam too!!! I did it for about a month, then got out of my routine. Just started back this week...and realized it doesn't take long to get out of shape!!! On the Learn and Burn I was totally struggling!!! Today was 20 minute workout...tomorrow Cardio party -> starting the advanced side workouts. Morning time works the best for me...even when I don't feel like it, I'm going to work out - like this morning (didn't get enough rest last night!). During the week, I walk with a friend - usually for about 45 minutes to an hour -- last night her husband had cleaned up the house and cooked supper for her. I released her from our nightly walk around the neighborhood last night! Perhaps if the rain holds off tonight we'll get a chance to get out there and enjoy! On a great day (ie, if we are in a 10k) we can do a 17 minute mile - just walking. Mostly we are walking about 3 mph. Great stress relief!!! I'm so glad you posted this today...God must have heard my prayer that it would be GREAT and extremely helpful if I had someone to talk to about Turbo Jam - someone who could help hold me accountable. Wanna be that person???? MightyFull :)

Birthday Traditions
What about a special pizza made of fruit? And cake...hmmm, what about angel food cake with fresh fruit on it? I've got a birthday coming up in about a month. Plus bridal showers...so it's challenging to have a different mindset, but if you think you can manage the regular --- with moderation -- enjoy. If not, you may want to plan a strategy and tell a friend who will hold you accountable for your actions!

multi-vitamins
have u tried like a generic brand multi-vitamin - performance? It's tough to swallow some vitamins - I would suggest taking with milk or coffee or something other than water. For some reason, water doesn't make swallowing vitamins easier. Though, it is usually recommended taking with water.
