When I took a good look at the photo on the previous page, I realized how much weight I've gained and how it has badly affected my appearance. I am also not feeling well...chest pain which may or may not be gastric in origin. Hopefully that's all it is.
I know that the only way I'm going to lose weight is to go back onto the Eat to Live plan. I doubt that my husband will join me...he has too great of a death wish....even worse than mine. He is eating junk.

Yesterday I made a pot of soup. It was pretty good....I was in terrible pain in my legs f and lower back just from standing long enough to cut up some veggies and throw them into the pot. I used a mixture of fresh veggies and frozen. I added garbanzos and edamame. It was very good....but I was the only one to eat it. I'm going to eat the leftovers until they are gone. Beats cooking. That is how I"m going to try to do this diet plan. Cook large amounts and eat leftovers. It's the only way I can do it.

Unfortunately, I ate two bowls of sugary cereal last night. For a while I had been getting a grip on my night time eating....but now, I'm back at it. i need to just make sure there is nothing sweet in the house to tempt me. If I get really hungry I can eat fruit. For breakfast today I'm going to mix 1 frozen banana, 1 half pint of berries, plain Greek yogurt, and almond milk with a little honey. I had it yesterday and it was really yummy. I wish I had some greens to throw in, but i don't. When I shop next I will buy frozen spinach and kale. If they are frozen they won't rot in the fridge....and I can use them as needed.

Have a Blessed Lord's Day all of you.

    I wish you great success. Enjoy your food-for-one... consider it freedom to please your own palate. Soups are a great idea this time of year and they always say they are filling on fewer calories.

    God bless!

    Big batch cooking is what is recommended when you want a regular nutritious meal no one else will eat. One of my Spark friends lives on her healthy soup all week. Using a slow cooker might be easier to make some meals for you. Is there no way you could have a chair in the kitchen? I use a stability ball when my back has had enough standing, but that wouldn't be safe for you.
    I use mostly frozen fruit in my smoothie now especially as I can't cut anything, its just as good as fresh. Haven't made the leap to green smoothies yet (wimp!) as I still enjoy the crunch of a salad.
    Yes, I can't have anything off plan in the house or its a sure fire invite to eat it :-( Don't know what you can do about it if that is what your husband or daughter insists on eating :-(
    Wishing you the best getting back on plan with more freggies..
