Congratulations, lyndalou. I have recently lost 40 lbs. since May. It is amazing what you can do when you "tweak" your diet. I like to snack, but I try to eat healthier things, replacing the typical chips, cookies, etc. I would say that I am a combination of types 2, 3, and 4.

Good Luck, lyndalou and keep up the great work!! 8)

Thanks, it always feels good to get a compliment. I actually got a compliment from a man that works a couple of levels above me today and it about knocked me over. For one thing I cannot stand the man as person, but I respect his knowledge of his job. At one point a few years ago he made me so angry that I wanted to quit my job, but I was not about to give him the satisfaction.

Yeah, never let someone like that influence what you do. You have to be true to yourself..... if you don't, that WOULD give them the satisfaction.

Thanks, again. Boy, it has really hit me hard today that my boss is retiring in 2 months. I starting to feel like the lost sheep. I know that things will be fine. But I am really going to miss him. I have worked for him ever since I started working for the Forest Service. :(

my soulmate... i'm a snacker.
typical day for me:
1st a.m meal- 8-oz. can of ginger ale
2nd a.m. meal- 1/2 a string cheese and a piece of nice crispy bacon
lunch#1- consomme and a few bites of leftover steak
lunch #2- a few brazil nuts, caffeine-free Coke
lunch #3- some bleu cheese and a piece of salami, a slice of proscuitto
1st afternoon snack- a saltine
2nd afternoon snack- half a can of ensure
dinner #1- a pierogy w/ butter
dinner #2- a crab leg
snack while watching tv- jolly ranchers and vodka
snack before bed- allergy medication and prevacid and a few sips of whole milk
midnight snack- 1/4 of a carton of yogurt

this has gotten me by just fine. my blood pressure is 120/70 on average, my resting heart rate is consistently 70-ish, and my stomach is always satisfied and not distressed because i don't overeat. and i'm skinny. very.
