I'll be up and running, okay, so that's maybe a lie, but I will be getting in the car to go to 24 HF. Breakfast will come later, as I read on there, the WW site, that it's necessary to start your body's metabolism working with making sure not to skip that ever important first meal of the day. I have to get some fruit so I can incorporate it into smoothies.

I'm having a good breakfast. I tend to be a skipper but I know eating breakfast helps me. My typical breakfast is a small bowl of muesli with milk, and a fruit smoothie, today was pineapple, frozen strawberries and a clementine orange - delicious. I chopped up two pineapples and put them in a refrigerator container, so that they are convenient for me to grab. It might cause a few nutrients to be lost, but no matter, as if I didn't do it this way, I wouldn't be getting any pineapple nutrients! I have not time to do that sort of thing during the week!!!!

Today, I exercised by doing Pilates for a half in hour. It felt so good to stretch some of those muscles that I forgot I had. I had intended to sit and watch a movie, but did the pilates instead. :)

A thought for all you guys and gals...

(There are some really good ideas coming out here, BTW!)

I like some attitudes here...you eat "regularly, and well",,,but ONLY until you "first feel 'full' "...and then "stop"...

About 5-6 such "mini-meals" a day, starting in the morning and ending about 1800hrs...

Definitely "no night time feedings"!

8-10 "big glasses" of water a day (surprising how this wipes out appetite, as "Crewsk" may attest!) that keeps the "guts" going as intended, aside from "washing out" the "system"...

Most of us can get by on a maintenance diet of around 1700-2000 calories a day, and "Biggest Loser" made a great point in "reading the fine print" on how many calories we do, in fact ingest without a lot of thought...

So sorry, DS, alcohol is 100 calories an ounce, regardless of which booze you drink...vodka is no different than Scotch in this respect...likewise, it strips your body of vitamins, notably Vitamin C...

Drinking fruit juices seems like a good idea, until you read the label and see just how much "fructose" (another name for sugar!) you are absorbing...

I'd shy away from that Atkins Diet thing, and go with the very high fibre source (juices with pectin and extra "pulp"), metamucil, oatmeal, beans, etc...

I'm hoping, wishing and praying for each of you..

Yes Lifter, water does wipe out the appetite!

Lifter, you are right about the high fructose corn syrup. Since my doctor has told me to cut back on HFCS, I am amazed the products that it is in. Trader Joe's has been a great help, since many of their products do not have HFCS. But I still read the labels carefully. Good luck everyone and keep up the good tips.
