  1. Hi McCall, I love core too! I find it difficult to keep up every meal on core but it is a challenge that I want to make a lifestlye. Therefore planning is everything!!! I can be a help to you, please let me know!!! Hugs, Michelle
  2. Hi Marilyn, Thank you for the advice. It was good advice. I have been away for my work and just read your post. You will be happy to know that I am on day 12 of OP days. Where did it come from? Prayer. I really turned my will, body, desires etc over to the Lord and walked through a few cravings, PLANNED my daily meals (GREAT ADVICE) and decided in my heart that there was NO area of compromise. This is it and it is better than fastiing. (Feast or faminie). I have lost 11 pounds sinc August 4th! I am exercising every day (almost) cardio, and I can see the inches dropping and my clothes feel better. Oh, marilyn, please stick with me and encourage me to not allow myself to fall back into the pit of despair that I was in during your post. Once there, it is almost impossible to pull myself back out and everything you said about wanting it but not planning it was right on. Thank YOU, buddy, and I hope to hear from you soon! Michelle
  3. Hi Marilyn, I am glad you stopped by. Yes I am always open for suggestions. The yogurt is not plain, and according to the nutrients, it equals 1 point. I am still having a difficult time getting OP completely. It is the mindsets and it is ridiculous! I need a swift . That is for sure! I know the journal chart is difficult to follow. It just makes me think about ALL of the areas that I need to do each day to be OP. Again, once I see an OP day, the chart will show it! Your inputs are always helpful so feel free!
  4. Ok, today is going to be totally core. I am going to be aware of my eating times and how much I eat at one shot. Eating within the comfort zone is a real battle for me due to compulsive eating struggles. I also want to exercise to keep my body stronger, which helps Mondays cardio to not be so hard to do. But, wow, the energy is the 80's music
  5. How did I do with yesterday's quest. Not so hot. I had cravings alot. I am wondering if the sf/ff pudding is doing it. Today is Sunday but I still want to exercise and plan some good eating. 08-03-08 (day 5) 276 Lbs. GOAL - ONE PERFECT EATING DAY!!!

  6. Sorry about that Sunny. Siggy is right. I said it wrong. How are you doing today on your new WOE (way of eating). I love the Core for the same reasons you do. No Counting!!! Again, I am working on the little decisions that make or break my days achievments. Having teenagers in the house makes it a battle at times. What does your daily menus look like, if you don't mind me asking?
  7. A smoothie sounds great and I have some frozen fruit that I need to use up. Great idea! I am thinking of making buffalo chicken tenders. Sliced chicken breast, boneless and skinless, with a mixture of ff blue cheese, ff cream cheese and hot sauce. Bake is altogether and serve. deeeelish! This goes really good with mashed cauliflower which is a family favorite...and....may be a comfort food! It's great with ketchup or saurkraut. Ok, back to checking off my list. keep in touch and let me know how you are doing!
  8. TODAY'S DISTRACTIONS: - Working on Ministry and outside getting good and dirty. My mind is going to be off of eating unless my stomach is growling at which time, I will eat until satisfied, time the 20 mins needed for the "full" signal to get to my brain and see what happens. I can do this! I am hungry right now. I didn't not have breakfast so I feel that a good bowl of cereal would be just fine!!! UMMMM!
  9. Hi Sunny! How are you doing today? Don't know about the roll call thing. I get lost on here too. That is why I created my own thread (see signy) where I daily journal. Everyone is always welcome to post anything they like on that thread. It not mine, just where I continue keeping track of my progress. Actually it would help if others jumped in and commented. So plz feel welcome anytime to visit me there or make one of your own. I do charts and all but if I simply just journaled that would help me too. I did great yesterday. Today I want to make a cool dessert and your potota salad sounded great. i think I only have light mayo though and not sure how to figure that in points. Any ideas? MarilynP, HI!!! Thanks for clearing up the potato/rice/pasta rule. I put "grain" instead of "pasta" didn't it? This is the most confusing part for me.
  10. Sunny, I am working on making everything core. The potato/rice/grain rule is for 1 meal only, I believe. And I am suppose to eat it until satisfied which defies everything about "emotional eating" So, yes, I have to indulge in the Core items, but my #1 weapon against emotional eating is staying out of the kitchen all together! I am working on distracting myself. I LOVE cleaning my house , weeding my garden, etc. So that is what I try to do. Also, I will tell myself that I am going to avoid those calories by NOT EATING, versus eating core, there is still calories there. But 3 POUNDS!!!! WOW!!! How long have you been having that kind of results and what do you do to battle the nighttime munchies? That is another area of problem Oh well! it's a lifestyle and it takes time. Right now I am going to eat chicken before I get so hungry that a double cheeseburger looks better than anything. Hugs, Jimsbride
  11. Friday morning. This has not been a successful week other than I have made some good choices...turning down a double cheeseburger, I made more homecooked meals than eating out. etc. I have also backed down on my cardio exercise to a more reasonable amount. 3x's a week. Stretchinig and bike riding in between. This has been a mental blessing! 08-01-08 (day 3) 276 Lbs. GOAL - ONE PERFECT EATING DAY!!!

  12. Hi Sunnymummy! I would love to be your Core buddy. I have been struggling myself but whole-heartedly believe in Core. It is the emotional part of eating that I fight with. I have been working on giving myself credit for the small decisions that I am making to change my lifestyle. Also, I keep a journal online (see signy) where I visit regularly to track my daily progress. It can be monotonous but I am a "list" kind of person lol! I would love to hear your tips, tricks and anything else you are discovering in hopes it will help me too! Blessings, Jimsbride
  13. Monday morning. So far so good I am exhausted from so much ministry this weekend. Today is my day off. I want to get in the pool, exericise, pull weeds and read.

  14. Can anyone explain how we are to use the cards? Is there a structure to them or is it just random that we use them? Today I am going to work on distractions. This is a powerful tool when we remember to do it. My body is under my control not vice versa. So I tell it when to eat, it does not tell me! Jimsbride
