Chrissy have any leftovers? That sounds good.....

We had spaghetti and meatballs tonight with garlic bread and a salad.....hubby didn't get home until 7:30, which is late for him--so I made it all around 6 and we just heated it all up. I wish he got home at the same time each day so I could have dinner cooking when he got home.

Oh and dessert was an oreo cream pie....lol I don't diet anymore, just eat whatever I want in moderation and exercise.....Exercise is one of the most important parts......treamill is really helping out.

Yummmm, spaghetti sounds good Loz, that is one of my favorites:) I [Love] Italian food! Tonight I am making chicken & dumpling pie. I make a pizza type crust using jiffy mix, spread the crust with mashed potatoes, chicken cooked & cubed, fresh veggies...I like corn, green beans, mushrooms, peas & onions. Cover that with thick chicken gravey made from the chicken stock after boiling the chicken. Then I put a crust on top & bake. Ya get your whole meal in one pan...kind of an alternative to pizza:) My kids love it, so does hubby [thumb]

Tonight we had salmon in the oven. Actually, the hubby ate it. I was too full from our really late lunch that we had. I made chili tonight too!! It is cooking in the crock pot over night so that Stephen can take it to work with him tomorrow.

So today marked 7 days on the diet. I weighed myself.....are you ready for this???? [grin] [grin] I lost 11 pounds!!! [grin] WooHoo!! [Confused] (party hat) And that was even without exercising. I think we'll start walking in the evening. I'd love to do something more cardiovascular, but my knees cannot do that right now (I need surgery on both of them). Anyways.... that was all just a side note. I'm just soo excited!

Its not a hard one either...you eat salad with almost every lunch and dinner, but I didn't even do that (started getting a little tired of salads by Friday). You totally cut out dairy, breads, and sugar for the first week or two. That was rough because I love ice cream...but I can have sugar-free ice pops, so that curbed that craving. The guy who came up with the diet is a cardiologist and he was trying to find a way to help his pateints lower their colesterol, triglicerides, and something else. After a month of the diet, all of their levels were down to regular levels (even people who had a colesterol of almost 300!!!) and as a by prodeuct, were losing weight! You should get the book...its really good!! [Smile]

Wow Jennifer,that is wonderful! [thumb] What is the name of the diet? My neighbor has been on a low carb diet for 2 weeks now and has dropped 1 dress size. She wont go anywhere near a scale,she goes by the way her clothes fit,so I have no idea how much weight she has lost.
Tonight I'm grilling ham slices,probably will fix some green beans,sweet potatos and cornbread. Good ole'fashioned southern comfort foods.

The South Beach Diet. Its not really a low-carb diet. Well, it could be, I guess. For the first week or 2 weeks you don't eat dairy, breads, or anything with sugar (no fruit, candy, anything). You basically eat salads, lean meats and most vegetables. That is done to reset your insulin. Alot of people who are overweight are insulin resistent....if they diet, it doesn't really work because their insulin has to go up and down depending what they eat. With this diet, your glucose levels pretty much stay the same instead of jumping up high when you eat a piece of bread and them plumoting down and causing you to get a craving. I wasn't hungry at all...you eat as much as you want...no measuring portions. The book is really good, like I said before. I learned alot.

Jennifer,

I am going to be your online diet buddy....maybe we can start a club here! [gabby]

I was doing South Beach last summer, and doin' Taebo too....I felt great, but didn't stick to it and gained again. It is great because you eat whenever you are hungry, but once you are used to the lack of carbs (which is my mainstay unfortunately) and sugars, you feel pretty good and not deprived.

I love a diet where you can eat string cheese!!

Well I am going to have to seriously check into this south beach diet...sounds easier than any other I have ever tried. But I am a notorious diet cheater...so we shall see if I can make it through this one lol:)

Tonight I was lazy in the kitchen, been spending so much time working at my mom's place I did not feel like cooking at all. We had smokey links & tater tots lol:) The kids loved it, my husband was a little bit unhappy, but I think he'll survive [thumb]

[Razz] diets imo stink.I decided 7 years ago to stop being mean to myself.I don't own a scale.I'm gonna be 40 next month and I feel fine.
I'm 5/7 and a size 9.Diets only work as long as your on them.I had to find a diet I could eat every day of my life.I love meat and veggies.So that's what I eat.I don't like sweets that much,I know ,what a weirdo? [nutz] my downfall is salt.oh my gosh,chips Doritoes,Munchos [Love]
Do I eat bread and potatoes?Oh yes ,but not every day.New potatoes,fresh bread out of the oven,yes indeedy.I've been fat,in my minds eye I'm still that girl,but again,be KIND to yourself first [Love] [Love] [Love]

Laura,
Have you looked at any of those crock pot recipes the wonderful people here were so kind to share with me? I have tried a lot of them already. That "Salsa Soup" one was TOO easy, and so good! Best thing is, it's cooking all day while you are out working, and ready to eat when you walk in the house HUNGRY!

[Big Grin] [Big Grin] Cindy, You know what is funny..I have a bookcase full of cookbooks and simply like to look at them. [grin] when it comes to making things we more or less have to save that for the weekends. I am a 2nd shifter so i try not to eat when i get home at night. A snack of some kind is o.k...but a full blown meal... [Razz] Phil is more the cook in our house then me. [kissies] We do share it on the weekends. But it the figuring out WHAT we want that is hard.. [dunno] Laura.
by afgreyparrot on May 08, 2004 04:43 AM
That's the reason I posted for crock pot recipes - tired of the same thing EVERY night. It was either pork chops and mashed potatoes, chicken and mashed potatoes, roast and mashed potatoes...

I was in the market for something DIFFERENT every night! Plus, with working in the yard all the time I didn't want to have to come in and spend an hour or so cooking something when I could be outside.

And you know what? I have shelves and shelves of awesome cookbooks displayed in my kitchen! When people see them they are amazed. And, I do the same thing you do...I look at them all the time and then go make some pork chops and mashed potatoes for supper!!!

Had the kitchen cleaned and dishes done and really didn't want to get alot dirty. Sunday skirt steak. [grin] [grin] Laura

had chicken breasts that were marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, worchestershire sauce, white wine, minced garlic, onion powder and water. I cut the breasts into stripes (the long way), stabbed them with a fork and let them sit for about an hour then threaded them onto skewers and onto the grill they went. I coasted them with olive oil and a bit of mrs. dash while they were grilling. Then I made mashed cauliflower (tastes like potatoes). That was it....was going to have salad, but didn't feel like it.

I figure reading about yummy food is better than eating it and gaining a hundred pounds! I am absolutely dying for some fried green tomatoes! Oooh...with mashed potatoes. And fresh green beans.....
