Hugs...Well, your menu does sound delicious anyway! lol

Good the chopped liver is gone, but nice while it lasted.
I look forward to little treats like that once in awhile in my future.

Julie..extra good menu! How do you fix your chia-hemp seeds? I've read about them a few times, but have not made them yet. I hear ya on not snacking just to snack! Little bit of a hard habit to break for me right now as I go through peanut butter withdrawal. Surprised

Donna: Nice job on making it through the day in food jail!

Hugs: Your looking ok as long as those portions are small and I'm sure they are....

I had a good day Thursday and went to bed a bit on the hungry side, yay!  My meals were very small so I really had to have the snacks.  I'm ok with that as long as I'm not snacking just to snack........... 

Breakfast: Chia/hemp seed mix w/ berries.

Lunch: Yogurt, grapes/watermelon.

Dinner: HM veggie/bean soup.

snacks: Turkey Jerky, Raw nuts.

Keeping it simple works for me as well Donna.  If I can explain my meals in one or two words, I'm typically doing well.  So, my plan to lose 6 pesky pounds is: cut way down on sweets, portion well, drink lots of water and tea.  OH, and no snacking!  When I lost weight previously, I didn't snack at all.....   and, of course,  I will exercise.

OK, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!!!

Donna:  I hear you on how the extra weight feels, UGH!!!  I hate even an extra pound......

Hugs...Your menu does not look like an "oink oink" at all!!
What's a cb sandwich? I know it's something simple, but my brain has froze up and won't let me know what "cb" means. lol

I did it!! I made it through the entire day on track!! Going through peanut butter withdrawal is hard..I have the shakes!! LOL

B) apple, 1 egg whites

L) broccoli, 2 egg whites

D) soup, 3 egg whites

Snack) apple, Cutie

Going to bed now...*hungry*!!

Okay, Julie, we'll stay tuned while you set up a new food plan. When I'm in strict losing mode, I have to have a stringent food list with very little selections on it. If I have too many choices, it's too easy for me to cheat. That's just me, though, and how I operate with foods. Everyone has to find their own way for what works best for them.

I've made it through B and L and doing well. So glad to have this under control again!! I cannot stand how it feels with these few added pounds on!! Can't stand my waistband feeling a bit tight. The lbs have to go away!!
