BuffyBear's Journal, 29 October 2011

OK - I won't call myself stupid because I know that offends some of you. But, even after I said I was not going to do it, I made a bad decision at lunch time Thursday (and Friday because I just had to eat the leftovers). Got turkey salad drowning in sweet raspberry dressing with craisins and white raisins. The sugar triggered cravings that manifested themselves all day yesterday.

So by now you may have noticed the pound gain on my chart. Am confident we won't be seeing any trace of it by next week.

Fun day planned today. Lunch and shopping with my SIL - got to do something fun while the guys are away! BTW, FIL to be released from hospital on Monday.

Hope your Saturday is fun filled as well.

163.0 lb Lost so far: 23.0 lb.    Still to go: 31.0 lb.    Diet followed poorly.

I had in mind to make turkey salad, just the plain old fashioned way with mayonnaise, but could not find a turkey breast. Unbelievable! Glad to hear that your FIL is doing better. The weather up here is getting really nasty today. Have fun shopping - going to a special place?

Jozette - Bed, Bath & Beyond - Got coupons! Funny they don't have turkey breasts out - I love turkey salad too - mayo & celery, green onion and dill pickle. Now you've gone and made me hungry!

I love BB&B, esp. with coupons. Hope you find some great buys. As for the weight, you know how it happened and you know how to correct it, so no worries, right? Those things happen to all of us, heck look at my stupid peanut battle! Anyway, I know you'll be just fine and on into the 150's shortly. We both have to hurry up and try to catch GG who's running ahead into the 140's now! Can't let her enjoy it all alone, now can we? Have a great time shopping and enjoying your "single" weekend. Good news about your FIL, too.

MMM, that turkey salad sounds awesome...I also love some tuna salad. Glad your FIL is doing better, and don't worry about that one pound...probably sodium related! Have a great time shopping!

Hi Buffy, Thanks so much for the Bannana MIM, but I have a dummy question regarding the McCormick bannana, is that a liquid like an extract or something different like ground up bannanas? Glad to hear you enjoyed your truck driving experience, I don't have one of those trailer brake controllers, but I would assume you did good by ignoring it! I love the smells at the BB&B, not the prices though, good you have coupons. FIL is on the mend, you & your scale had a little talk, but, oh does that salad sound good! Tiny little blip in the overall scheme of things though & I do like your attitude about moving onward & downward, as the 150 club is a knocking on your door! Now, about that chocolate pie, I am really kind of sad to say...it is going to be really, really, really good! I am a chocoholoic, always have been, always will be! Being able to make low carb chocolate stuff really makes me smile! I have been looking over my recipe for Death by Chocolate & think maybe, with what I have learned so far, I might just try it! Have a great girls weekend, the guys will be home soon enough! BTW, thanks for the Hoorays on my journal today!

Sandy - You are right - no worries! GG is a hard act to follow, but we have time on our side. And, just so you know, I have removed peanut butter from my menu also.

Stef - thank you for your thoughts. And, nice try but that pound is sugar related.

Notfast - my purchases were more of the practical nature - but I had fun just the same!

Skinnyfuture - Nice hearing from you. SIL bought all the fun stuff - almost $100 worth of duct tape for grandchildren. Who knew they made Hello Kitty duct tape?

You're confidence will see you through! Hope you had fun shopping!!!

GG - the McCormick banana flavor is liquid. Was a little expensive but you'd swear those muffins had real bananas in them! Thanks for the warning on the chocolate pie - think I'd better hold off on that.

Oh I like the sound of the banana flavor I will have to try that, I haven't made the MIM recipe yet but I will get round to it. Have a lovely Sunday.
