  1. Hi, everyone. I have been MIA for a while but still plugging away. I lost only 2#s in February but that's 2 I do't have to worry about anymore. I think I finally have gotten to the point where I can do Core basically and not go crazy with it. I started out eating only core foods but counting the points for it. It got me back into eating like a normal person not eating anything and everything that was allowed! I had to relearn how to tell I was hungry I guess. Anyway...it seems to be working well for me this way. I know I don't have to count but it seems if I don't then I eat the whole dozen baked oatmeal muffins in one day! Some of the core meals are so darn good it's hard to stop!
  2. Lynn - glad your test is over and that your other bloodwork was good. I had my 2nd colonoscopy in August last year. Almost 15 yrs since my first and they said I don't have to go back for 10 years. No colon cancer in my family history and both my tests were good. I'm really having problems with staying OP. I am eating all SiFi foods but I guess I'm eating too much of everything. It was so good at first eating and not measuring or counting points but I'm not losing like I was. I may do a week of Flex and see if it gets me started again. I'm still going to try to eat SiFi foods but measure and count for a while. If you have any pointers....please....share them with me.!
  3. January 21 Thursday Going to try posting my meal plan on here. If anyone sees me doing something really stupid, please let me know. B: shredded wheat with Skim milk and banana L: chicken breast, lettuce, FF cheese on sandwich thin (1pt), FF cottage cheese & pineapple tidbits S: SF/FF pudding D: Chicken stir fry S: popcorn, SF/FF hot chocolate
  4. OK, I'm still here. Right now I'm hungry and going to eat popcorn and SF/FF hot chocolate, read and go to bed so I don't eat anything else! This makes 5 days of healthy eating!
  5. Judy, sorry to hear you've been under the weather. I'm back on track for the last 3 days. Feeling good about myself and my eating for a change! I even walked up the street with the baby today. Not major exercise but at least I was moving!
  6. Hi, I'm still in. Had a bad week last week (not eating Core but eating too many extra points) and gained a pd. I know what I did and I've been back as a "good girl" for 3 days. I'm not giving in or giving up this time! I'm here for the duration.
  7. This looks like something I really need! My goal for today is to ride my exercise bicycle for at least 20 minutes and not eat more than 5 extra points today. I didn't eat all 5 yesterday!
  8. I love this! I'm in too! I know that SiFi works for me better than anything I've ever tried with WW which in the last 20+ years has been a lot. I'm smaller now than I've been in almost 31 years! Not at goal but that looks promising now that I've found the little secret behind losing weight...not being hungry all the time! I love SiFi and this group too!
  9. Well another week on SiFi and I lost 3#s again. Hopefully this has actually sunk into my feeble brain and I won't try to go back again to my old ways! It's been pretty quiet around here today. DH watched a ballgame while I read. My meeting was at 8:30 this morning so I was back home after running errands by 10:20. Just chilling since then.
  10. It's a great day and a great New Year! Not much planned for today except changing bedding and getting ready for some family company next week. I may make another batch of zucchini chocolate muffins...love those Lynn! Hope everyone has a wonderful day and New Year!
  11. Bridget - now I know why you are Bridgethemom! 6 kids!!!! I only have two and that kept me busy:bcb_bigsm I'm ready for a new year and a new me! Since finally figuring out that SiFi is the only way to go I'm on my way to goal. Closer than I've ever been so hopefully 2010 will be my year. I have to get into exercise and I guess I've used the hip replacement card all I can. Both are new and there are no more! I have a Leslie Sansone DVD that I'm going to dust off until warmer weather when I can get out and walk outside and then attempt to get the bicycle out again. I hope that each of you have a great New Year's Eve (safely!) and a wonderful 2010!
  12. So far another day OP! This is so much easier than counting every bite!!! I am addicted to the oatmeal muffins. Sometimes I make them with apples, sometimes with fresh cranberries, sometimes pumpkin. The varieties are limitless and oh so good! I'm planning a trip to Sam's Club and Aldi's tomorrow to stock up some more. This is going to be my last year pre-goal. I am determined to make it there and stay there:bcb_grin Hope everyone has gotten over Christmas and gotten some rest too.
  13. Hi gang! 2 days OP SF and feeling better already. It's not just the weight gain I didn't like after the week supposedly on Flex...it was the way I felt! I really feel much better when I'm doing SF! I guess because I'm eating real food and not using all my points on junk stuff. I made the chocolate zucchini muffins Saturday and they are really good. I have plenty of SF food in the house and look forward to a great week!
  14. I am so glad to be back on SF today! I did SF the first week back and lost 3#s. Then...I decided with Christmas week I would count points so I could get a little of everything in...well, I gained 4#s this week! I know better and I know what works for me now but I guess I'm just stubborn. On top of all that I also had a weird breakout last night. About 8:30 I was sitting watching TV with DH and suddenly began to itch like crazy. I went to the bedroom and stripped down and was covered with small hives, even my head was itching. I took 2 benadryl and tried to calm down. It took several hours for all the spots to go away but they finally did and I slept good last night. Have no idea what caused it...didn't eat anything different unless my body doesn't like sugar anymore Anyway I feel much better today and I am 100% SF! You would think that after I figured it out that I would have sense enough to stay with it! I'm going to make some baked oatmeal later with fresh cranberries in it. Haven't tried the oatmeal creme brulee yet so may make some of it too! I have stopped by the grocery on my way from WI and have everything I need for a great SF week!
  15. Thanks, Lynn! I'll be trying this one for sure!
  16. I need make a breakfast to go item (like oatmeal creme brulee). I think I'll make some of that. Did you know that is only 1 point per 1/12 of the recipe???? Even with EGGS...since I make it into 12 muffins, that is one point per muffin!!! (not that I count points, but I was pleasantly surprised to see it was such a point bargain).... OK, where is the oatmeal creme brulee recipe?????
  17. Good Morning! I went to my WI this morning and lost 3#! Yippee!!!!! There is no snow here in MS and I hope we don't get any! You can enjoy your snow to your hearts' content wherever you may have it . I grew up in upstate New York and don't miss it a bit! I think I have become addicted to the baked oatmeal with fresh cranberries! It's all I can think of. Guess I better go make another batch. Have a great day!

  19. Hi all. I have been busy as well but have been trying to read the posts as much as possible. I have been back on SiFi religiously since Saturday and have made it through 4 days already. Even with baking cookies and making fudge I've only used a few of my points this week. I am giving away most of what I make and making DH hide the rest in the jar and cans throughout the house! I hope he doesn't forget something and it goes bad during the year I'll try to be better about posting...but with the holidays looming and everything crazy around here I can't promise anything!
  20. Hi, Lynn. Everyone must be doing their Christmas shopping! We have been extremely busy this week with packaging Christmas for our family and for the needy at the church. It was a lot of fun though and I enjoyed every minute of it. I will have DGS on Monday, Tuesday and Friday this week so those days will be hectic! I went back to my WW meeting on Saturday. I had gained 3.5#s in the last 6 weeks. I decided to get back in gear and make it work again. I think SiFi is the only way I'm going to get this done so I'm was good all day yesterday and today has started off well. Hope everyone is warm and having a great day!

  22. Everyone in our family loves my fudge so I have already made 6#s but put it in tins to mail to Texas! I kept a small tin for DH and I am determine to stay out of it. I ate two pieces when I first made it and that is it! I usually make cookies and candies for neighborhood trays but not sure if I will do that this year. Seems everyone is trying to cut down. We went to a Sunday School Christmas Party last night and I took dessert...WW Fruit Trifle. That's the only dessert I ate and I worked in the kitchen so that I wouldn't be sitting down and eating a big plate of food. Worked pretty good.

  24. Welcome Bonnie! I have been on SiFi for only a short time but have found that if you really stick to it you will lose well. I hate to admit but I was not good the last 2 weeks and gained back some of what I lost but I'm back on track and waiting to lose again! Lynn is right...just stay on here and on the recipes and daily chat thread and you will learn a lot. I love the recipes and have made several of them. I find that you will never be hungry is you stick to the plan. It's amazing!
