I do need to get that protein back in my breakfasts, I just love those muffins! Another banana nut one w coffee today for breakfast.

It's wonderful to get back into it & get your feedback Addie!!
I knew the holidays were going to be a problem. So I let you slide and enjoy them. But that is over and I am going to be on your case again. So expect to see me every day watching your progress. I don't know about you, but those words the doctor spoke to you that day haunt me. You have a very special daughter to finish raising. In a few years you will be shopping for that very special gown for the "Mother of the Bride!." And I want to see pics of you in it.

Good advice, thank you. I would eat the egg white, if it was warm, not the yolk.

I know several people who have successfully lost weight by eating everything they wanted (within some reason of course) by just eating half of what they would have usually put on their plate. No deprivation just moderation.

Tsk. Tsk. Where's the protein? (Asked fondly but never-the-less asked!)

I save that for my lunch, as I have different health problems that must be addressed. I sincerely hope that was the last muffin that a well-meaning get-well wisher brought to me. I am a weakling when it comes to brownies, muffins, etc, especially as gifts. Back to my regular whole grain and veggie brekkies tomorrow.

Milk, strawberries and Kashi Autumn Wheat (small wheat woven squares). Wished I had a BLT+egg+bagel but gained some #s over the holidays and need to eat healthier. Not liking healthy food. Gimme a lox/bagel/onion and cream cheese any day. Like, tomorrow? (I think not. Don't got no lox.)
