CWS, I eat similarly to the way you do....big breakfast with protein, smaller lunch and dinner. My body likes that.

Roll Bones, many times I don't eat breakfast as soon as I get up. It can be up to 11 AM before I eat, like you. But I still consider it breakfast, the first meal of the day. When I do that, my next meal is dinner and then I eat a snack in the evening. I don't think there's anything wrong with "skipping" breakfast, or "delaying" it. Eat when you are hungry and stop when you are satisfied. Breakfast doesn't have to be traditional breakfast food, and lunch or dinner can be breakfast food if that's what you want. This is just my opinion, which may differ from others.

Yes, and that is why this is an encouragement thread - we praise and encourage people as they go through their own walk. Weight loss is a personal choice and a tough road. We need to make our own choices but can't do it without the encouragement of others and hearing THEIR success stories/stumbling blocks as well.

What seems like a disaster one day, is barely a blip when you take the week as a whole. I would just try to keep blips at a minimum, but allow them here and there. Deprivation is the #1 best way to fail at a diet plan.
Its a blip that leads to these things being in my possession and subsequent consumption.
I bought about a 1/2 gallon of ice cream and three bags of those new single bite candy bars. (they are fantastic by the way)
So I had ice cream for three nights instead of one night. The candy were very small bags so they were gone in a flash.
I assume my carb intake all evens out as I have had nothing extra for two nights. I may not eat anymore sweets for another week or two.
Thanks chef.

Yep, my breakfast would be lunch. Then one more meal at around 7 pm. If I would stay away from snacks after that last meal, I would not gain any extra weight.
This is where I have the problem. Very late at night. I sometimes do not sleep until well after 2-3 am.

Well said.

I LOVE ice cream, really love the stuff. I can't keep it in the house because a carton is 3-4 servings max for me. If I'm going to have ice cream I go out for it, enjoy it and move on. If I had it in the house I would eat it every night until it was gone. Same thing with small candy bars or truffles, they are so easy to pop in your mouth. I wouldn't eat a full sized candy bar every day, but I would eat 2-3 mini candy bars or truffles, doesn't make much sense, but that's how my brain works!

I understand completely, Bakechef. I like to keep ice cream in the house for the two young girls I often have come over after school (or like now during spring break when their Mom's are working). I love ice cream but have gotten accustomed to Breyers and other high end ones or my own home made. So, I buy the big tubs at Costco. You would think that this would be more dangerous but it isn't because I east less of this kind. And if I am given a bag of small chocolates (say the foil covered mini-eggs) I will down them quickly, but a chocolate bar of any regular or large size can stay intact for days even if there is nothing else around. It seems I don't want to be the one to "break it". But once it is, I can't help myself.

I went to the pool today to make up for yesterday when I had one of my "girls" over and had such a rough night's sleep the night before. It felt really good. I will still do my regular time tomorrow as I am also meeting with my previous YMCA trainer for a refresher of the stretches and weights program I was on before. I won't be starting it for a bit (need to let the pool work for a couple of weeks) but this is the best time for us to meet. She understands all my conditions and is very encouraging. There was no reprimands for giving it up - she knew the circumstances of Dad and then my health. She just said let's regroup and think positive!

I skipped the work out today, feeling a little guilty about it, my legs were a little sore. Short staffed at work today so had to run my butt off there today. Back at it tomorrow.

SB, if you ran your butt off at work today, that constitutes a workout, IMHO! No need to feel guilty!

In my younger days I knew a guy who, every time I said I lost weight, he would say "No you didn't. Look behind you!" LOL

I don't buy things I shouldn't be eating, but DH does. He will buy a carton of ice cream and eat 1 serving. Guess who finishes it? It hasn't worked that way this time. I ate one serving of that carton and there it sits, in the freezer. I refuse to eat any more of it, no matter how much I like it. I'm declaring war!!!
