I love their salad bar. I pick out the spring mix and leave the iceberg lettuce behind. Then I add a little broccoli and c auliflower, eggs, pepperoni, and just a little bit of the chick peas (too high in carbs, but good for fiber).  It is really hard to pass up their cornbread salad, but I do it....

Awwww...thanks Umpa! I'm trying my best and feeling much better about it all!!  :D

Owensmath - I only had the spring mix a little cheese and pepperoni! I like my salads pretty plain! Never tried the cornbread casserole, so I don't know what I'm missing! lol   ;)

Here's what I ate yesterday! Wednesday night church left the fam. eating leftovers pretty late!  :)

Breakfast - 1 sausage patty, 2 eggs, 2 1/2 cups of coffee w/a scant 2T sf torani syrup and a splash of heavy cream  (2 carbs)

Lunch - grilled salmon (my sweet hubby spoils me sometimes!), 1/2 cup caulimash, small salad w/WF dressing (3 carbs)

Snack - 14 roasted almonds (1 carb)

Dinner - MommaB's low carb chili w/ a little shredded cheddar & 1 T. sour cream on top & Jo's cornbread (5 carbs)

11 net carbs for the day
96 oz. of water!!! (I was starving most of the day and tried the ice cold water that Tony suggested and it worked for the most part, but I felt as if I'd float away!!! lol)  :o
1 diet soda
only 6 hours of sleep

That's about it until I post what I ate today, but I do have to say that my stomach must be shrinking a bit because I haven't been nearly as hungry as yesterday!!!  ;D

*MommaB, I was surprised at how quickly my stomach shrunk, too! Now I put just a little bit of food on my plate - even use a small plate and it seems to be plenty.

*prayer for MommaB
for patience with your little ones
that your scale starts to move down quickly
for energy in abundance to get through your busy days
that you can see God's blessings in the little things

Hi MommaB! :)

You meal plan looks much better.

If you pants feel looser, that is weight loss occurring REGARDLESS of what the scale says!

And Umpa's so right!... We need good sleep like we need good food and a little exercise.
All three comprise the road to good health! :)

KUDOS!!! ;D ;D ;D
What you do today is what matters!

Yay! MommaB! Keep it up! When you get settled in with FTS, you might look at the sodium - I only mention it because I'm very sensitive to excess sodium and it makes me retain water like crazy! That means no weight loss or even some weight gain!

I know it's true, Tony! But after all the kids are in bed, I still have laundry to fold, e-mail to check, etc. and it's soooo hard to get done early! I'm doing much, much better though! I used to get less than 6 hrs. a night! My goal is 8 hrs. sleep a night, but feel like 7 is good! I should be able to sleep in tomorrow, we'll see!  :D

Thanks Sarah, I think that sodium might cause problems too!! I'm taking baby steps! lol  I know that the pork rinds have a lot, I salt my eggs a tiny bit, and the grill mates seasoning on the salmon, but again that's not too much!! Where else do you see sodium!?! Want to make sure I'm aware of all of it!!

Thanks y'all!!

Sometimes cheese is high in sodium and maybe the pepperoni - you can check the labels - lunch meats can be high. I was eating a lot of that for a while. I made a tiny bit of jerky the other day and it tasted really salty - sure enough the next morning I was up nearly 2 pounds. But I hung in and it dropped off the next day. When I quit using salt altogether, I can really taste it in stuff. I've put the salt shaker in the cupboard for the time being. I love salt. I can't believe how FTSish I am now! Someone brought a pineapple upside down cake over today and I just looked at it and said, "I'm not eating that." Before I would have drooled and maybe had a 'smidge' so I wouldn't hurt anybody's feelings. Or I would have LAMENTED not having it. It didn't bother me in the least to turn my nose up at it!
