Laura, congrats on being back at school. If you like to drink your breakfast, a Green Monster is great. Half a cup of soy milk, half a cup of water, a cup of frozen berries (I like the Costco mix), a handful, or even two, of fresh, raw spinach, and whatever sweetener you like. Run it through the blender, and you've got a delicious healthy shake for any time of day. You really don't taste the spinach (weird, I know) and it doesn't look green, either.
If you like sandwiches, those are quick and easy. PB and banana, turkey ham and low-fat cheese, or whatever you like.

The drink sounds really interesting. Do you get the vanilla milk?

I do get the vanilla milk. I was getting the light one, but then I noticed the difference in calories seemed to be because they cut the protein, so I switched to regular vanilla. I use it in my coffee too, half vanilla soy, half 1% milk.

Thanks Danielle for the recipe. I'm going to try that. I have been making smoothies for the kids and hubby in the morning with greek yogurt, frozen fruit (mostly strawberries), banana and some honey to make it sweet. But I'm going to try yours as well. I do like to drink my breafkast LOL.

I also make myself a sandwich because I eat that on our break at school and usually buy a water in the cafe at school and I buy baked lays.

I need to start exercising again too. I have been dancing with my DD6. She got Just Dance 3 from Santa and I really sweat after awhile. But during the day I am going to starting walking around my neighborhood as soon as it gets a little warmer. I hate the cold.

Hope everyone has a wonderful St Patrick's Day.

Missed the Friday check-in, but had a good week. I am -2.2 for this week. Did more running around in general and my eating was real good this week. Hoping to keep the momentum going.

Hope you all are having a good week!

Where is everyone? Hopefully out enjoying good weather!

I missed the Friday check-in, but had another good week. Kept up what I did last week and am -2.4! Gonna keep it up... got plenty still to do around the house (painting, refinishing cabinets, etc.) to keep me moving. We are working to get the house on the market by mid-April, so the next couple of weeks will be busy.

Hope you all have a good week!

Hello everyone , haven't been in for a while. Had my first real blip.
Only last 1 pound over 2 weeks and I was really disappointed.
I thought I had worked really hard in the gym and I didn't eat any more than usual. I really had a hard time getting my head round things, but I decided I'd come too far and worked too hard to let my first setback derail my weight loss journey. So I got back in the gym and ate the best I could for the next 2 weeks and this weigh in I've lost 4 pounds. Really really over the moon, not just because I lost so much but mainly because I didn't give up and I kept going.
So my target is now down to 29 pounds, according to wii fit I now weigh 14 stone 5 pounds which is 201 pounds I started 320 days ago and I weighed 252 pounds so altogether I've lost 51 pounds in under a year.
It's starting to really show now as everyone I meet remarks on the fact I've lost weight , which is really nice to hear and helps spur me on.
I want to thank everyone in here for the support , you may not think it but just reading your posts and problems and successes helps me as I know there's other people going through the same things as me.

Great job, Eighth Dwarf! I completely know what you mean... in the past few attempts I've made at losing, when I hit that blip, I stopped putting in as much effort or gave up altogether. This year, I decided to get the help of WW, and the leader suggested we only make one goal: commit to come to a meeting every week. I decided to do just that, and I have done far better than I have on any other attempt at weight loss. And I feel better about myself because I have stuck to it. And I too appreciate when everyone posts here, because I see how you all are handling things that I am also running across in my life. I appreciate you all!

While this week was not as good as the past couple of weeks, I am still down... -0.4, and since the beginning of the year, I am -16.8. Since I started last year, I am -30.4. I have a ways to go (40 lbs. more), but I feel like I have made good headway, and I am confident that I will meet my goal!

I hope you all have a fantastic week!

Am I a thread killer? I sure hope not!

Had a busy week and didn't eat as well as I should have. But I am still -0.6 this week. Hoping to do better this week.

Hope you all have a great week!

I've been a bad, bad peep. However, I did sign up for 5 sessions with a personal trainer yesterday, hoping I can turn things around. Hope everybody had a beautiful Easter/Passover.
