^same here. I must have had 3,000 calories yesterday. The family holiday picnic was cheeseburgers, baked beans, potato salad, chips, strawberry shortcake and cookies. And of course I had to have some of everything. At least I ran 7 miles this morning to burn some of it off.

The party I was at had "cake pops" (cake crumbled up with frosting and shaped into a ball around a stick, and dipped in chocolate), and crackers with cream cheese with sweet pepper
jam poured over the top of it. Yum!!! Not to mention the beer. If it wasn't for the beer it wouldn't have been so bad lol

Well done CWS, that is a fabulous effort!

It is amazing what can happen when you just cut down on certain foods and change your eating habits

To check my breakfast regime, see:

What have you had for breakfast lately?

I am not hungry, I don't have afternoon or evening cravings, and I don't feel deprived. I do think, however, that eating "grains" instead of bread with breakfast makes a difference in combination with the greens. The DH eats toast with his breakfast. He ate grains yesterday and was so full at lunch, he didn't finish his salad. He is an afternoon (no--all day grazer). He said that he was surprised at how full he was all day.

I committed (to myself) to try it for 30 days, give or take. I'd say try it for a week, even 3-4 days.

Okay--about a month ago, I started eating my big meal for breakfast. My goal was to fit into my skinny jeans by the end of July. That happened after 10 days. Today I had to run some errands, so I thought I'd wear my favorite jeans...not happening. Jeans are 4" too big (I am not a big person--size 12). Okay. Let's try another pair of jeans...oops, no, not gonna happen. The jeans I ended up wearing were size 6. Designer jeans. Oh my. Check out the What have you had for breakfast lately thread to get a sense of what I've been eating...

As I was hopping in and out of the car today while doing errands, I kept thinking "my legs are skinny." I was a semi-pro athlete--so I've always had, if I must say so myself, nice legs, but not skinny legs. And no, I have not cut out all the soda or liquor in my life. I just changed the time of day that I eat my big meal and combined greens with grains. Can't say how much weight I've lost, I refuse to own a scale. I just know I've gone down 3-4 sizes in jeans (that is flipping shocking for me--I fluctuate between a size 10 and 12, when "fat" a 14). Those size 6 jeans were ones I wore in 1990! I couldn't get rid of them--they were flipping expensive.... I probably should contact Dr. Oz...it was one of his shows that prompted me to do the "load calories on the front-end" of the day experiment. It worked.

I am the opposite if I eat a big breakfast I am starving early on and then pig out at lunch. Now I eat a small light breakfast then a light lunch. At night I have a good meal but keep it within reason, most of the time.

Being on vacation in Maine, I am eating way too much and may need to have my jaw wired shut when I get home everywhere you go there is baked goods or great ice cream. I had an awesome piece of blueberry pie yesterday with a perfect crust! I've had peanut butter pie today, along with ice cream from a place that makes it there. Their "scoop" is actually 3 balls of ice cream mashed together, so their serving sizes are quite generous! I've eaten at my favorite Chinese restaurant, along with the buffet at the casino. Add to that a few whoopie pies (a must have when visiting Maine) and I'm surprised that my pants still fit!

Back home tomorrow and back to more sensible eating, I think I need it!

I went to Winthrop yesterday to have my vitals checked. I lost another pound. I don't know if that is good or bad. I have been eating, and I thought for sure that I would start to regain the weight I had lost when I had the eating problem. But at my height, I could stand to lose at least another 25 pounds. They have a new scale that is digital. Right down to the ounce. I like it. The old one was the one with the sliding weights. The new one is more accurate.

I have a stupid digital here at home. It is a bit neurotic though. Stand on it and it gives you a weight. But if you don't like what it is showing, move it and you will get a reading of lower weight. Works for me.

Supposedly, because protein takes longer to digest, eating protein in the morning keeps you fuller. I know the mornings I eat rice with my greens, I'm not as satiated as I am the mornings I eat quinoa or barley with my greens and eggs. I read s/where recently that one needs to add whole grains to greens to get the full nutritional benefit of the greens.
