WARNING TO SELF AND TO ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN!!! AVOID 'BAD' CARBS AT ALL COSTS!!! THEY ARE ADDICTING!! THEY WILL SLOW DOWN YOUR WEIGHT LOSS DURING THE LOSING STAGE (and you won't even notice)!! THEY WILL MAKE THE SCALE GO UP AFTER THE HONEYMOON PERIOD IS OVER.

Success in Maintenance starts with GOOD CHOICES during the Honeymoon Period.

I feel I need to repeat this: I am a FIRM believer in Good Whey Protein Drinks!!!!! It is sooooo much harder to do Maintenance without them!

Good Afternoon LW's!!! Are you ready for the Holidays? My hubby has been wrapping for a few days. We cut back this year but with 9 grandkids there is still a ton to wrap. I'm soooo looking forward to our Christmas Eve service at church. That's when I feel a sigh of relief because the shopping lists can be thrown away and the wrapping is all done.

I have to admit I've had a few to many pieces of candy and party food this past week. As of this morning the scales were still in my "good" range.

Breakfast:

Protein: Matrix Mint Cookie 35g

Lunch: Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Cheese

Snack: Nuts and Cheese

Protein: Matrix Mint Cookie 35g

Snack:

Dinner: Roast and 1/2 cup Mashed Potatoes

Snack: Lightly Salted Popcorn

Good afternoon Menu Gang! I feel like we're in the home stretch. I have to wor****il noon on Thursday then done till the new year. Tomorrow we are having an office pot luck so no work will be done.

Was to the gym this morning - did my weight routine and felt pretty good about it!

I ate a crazy amount of crackers with Balderson cheese spread, and a few chip nuts yesterday. The scale rewarded me with a 3.7 lb loss. Not sure if its because my calories were higher or what exactly is going on with my bod. I will see what happens tomorrow morning. I will stay away from the extras around the office today, because I have a pretty good menu planned and want to make sure I can tell if its working for me. I am my lowest weight I can remember in years...167.2 lbs

Post Op 20+ months

B1 - small banana, 1 tbsp. peanut butter

B2 - rotisserie chicken

S - greek yogurt

L - cobb salad

S - pepperette and cucumbers

D - shepperds pie

Total Cal 1320, Protein122, Carbs 58

Over 100 lbs lost! and 13 lbs below goal weight!

Congrats with the # on the scale!!! You are doing Awesome!!!!! I've found that sometimes if I increase my calories for a day or say I actually have a loss that sticks but I have to get right back to eating what is normal for me to keep it off.

That's great you get that many days off. I'm taking the day after Christmas off. I LOVE the Christmas rush and sales that morning. I'm a Christmas paper/boxes crazy person.....LOL. This year I hoping I can buy some one color paper that I would be able to use for birthdays etc.

I LOVE Rotisserie Chicken!! DH isn't crazy about it so I can usually get 3 meals out of it. Love the Protein total!!

I had an RMR test done last week and it said I should be eating 1800+ calories if I was sedentary which I?m not.

So im playing with my macros to try and figure out what a good number is for me.

I can?t imagine eating that much food so I?m trying to up my calories with protein and a bit of fruit, nuts and fats. We will see if the loss was just a fluke or if weight will stay down. It won't if I keep eating the crap I shoved into my face today!

Im entering a trial and error phase I think!

Have fun with the Boxing Day shopping you won?t catch me near a store until the new year!

Over 100 lbs lost! and 13 lbs below goal weight!

I've had more than my share of extra bites so far this holiday season and my scales were under my "perfect range" this morning. You will figure out what works for you.

1800 sounds like a lot of calories but you do work out so maybe. Just eat more protein than carbs. I haven't added mine up for years.
