I'm jealous! Have fun! - Spoonful_O_Sugar 435.8 #283 11:20AM
it was amaazing! the view was beyond words! I would post pics, but I have over 70 lol. It was basically a steady incline with some flat levels. In the end I felt accomplished and my butt hurts, definitely feeling it tomorrow! WORTH IT! - Madi 204.1 #1570 10:18PM
Glad you enjoyed it! I've always wanted to do that hike--hopefully someday! - Spoonful_O_Sugar 435.8 #283 8:40AM

My goal was to do a four mile jog, but I ended up doing six! - Spoonful_O_Sugar 435.8 #283 11:23AM

I was thinking about starting a daily goal challenge. The idea is that you can share your daily goal and the results of the goal. Maybe it'll get me thinking and motivated.
I have another good quote from Kim Benson: What you eat in private and what you wear in public. Hardest part of eating changes besides hunger is being honest with myself. Ironically the planning makes it easier. - Plumiegirl 3322.0 #10 10:59AM
I like this idea! Daily goals are so important! - LisaMouse7531 408.8 #316 5:55PM
Daily goals are very important, and so easy to forget in the hustle and bustle! I feel like I fell asleep in December and have just woke up to realize it is May already! Maybe a daily goal will help to keep me on track, too. Love the idea! - Duchess73 293.7 #650 9:13PM

I thought a lot about my goal for today. My goal is to have a fruit and/or vegetable with every meal or snack. What's your goal?
I tried to get on here earlier, but I allowed my day to overtake me. My goal was to not work through my break today like I did the rest of the week and get outside and walk. It was an hour later than I planned, but I did go out and take my walk. I hope you achieved your goal today Mrs.mouse! - Duchess73 293.7 #650 5:26PM
I'm going to call today a success. I stuck with my goal. :) I ate fruit/vegetables at every meal today. I am feeling good about my choices. - Mrs.mouse 420.2 #306 10:27PM
My goal is to eat fresh and local so fruit and salads every day. It has really helped my skin and I just feel soo much better. - Plumiegirl 3322.0 #10 10:57AM

Came home from work and made my favorite (low-cal) cole slaw recipe and thought that I'd share. I'm not sure where I got the recipe - South Beach, Atkins, who knows...but it's easy, low-cal/low-fat and delicious! Hope y'all like it (sorry...don't know the points)! 1 med head cabbage (1-1/2lbs) shredded or thinkly sliced; 3/4 c. low fat mayo; 1/2 c. low-fat sour cream; 2T. cider vinegar; 2 pks. More...

Good morning!!! Happy Tuesday! I did we'll with my eating yesterday. Feels good to be back on track. Now to keep it up. Here's to a happy, healthy day for us all!
Happy Tuesday to you too. I hope your week continues to go well. - Mrs.mouse 420.2 #306 12:36AM
I had to go to Oahu yesterday for a meeting and I'm proud to report that I still stayed pretty much on track (although didn't do Jenny all day). Ate Jenny breakfast bar on the plane, then was fortunate to go with the person that was supposed to order the lunches so I got to get a salad for myself. The hardest part was the after "drinks and pu-pus" - just had one glass of wine and only a few bites of food....not too bad. - msdizmaui 518.7 #223 1:02AM

Happy Belated Mother's Day to all my Chub33 friends! I had to work today (got to celebrate yesterday with my sons). Blew it yesterday and vowed to get back on track today and did...until my son brought me home a McDonalds Hot Fudge Sundae! Oh well...tomorrow is another day...
Happy Mother's Day to you too! I also blew it big time this weekend. Having a hard time getting things together this week. - Mrs.mouse 420.2 #306 12:37AM

A couple of you asked how the Cooking Light recipes were going. So far so good :) The first was a ground sirloin with cabbage seasoned with turmeric and ground red pepper, very good and super simple. I also did a apple cinnamon stuffed french toast, also very tasty. Tonight I'm going to try the loaded baked potato soup.
Glad to hear its going well. The food sounds yummy. Post some recipes sometime. - Mrs.mouse 420.2 #306 12:35AM

Hi everyone!! Happy Monday!!! I ate my way through the weekend and find myself 7 points in the negative and needing to regroup and get back on track today. Who is with me??
I'm right there with you. This weekend I ate 2 pieces of pizza, a pound of clams, sliders, ice cream, 2 hamburgers, and French fries. OMG. For some reason I have a ravenous hunger. I never eat like that. - PirateQueenBriezy 291.4 #660 10:22AM
I feel your pain. I ended up gaining 1/2 a pound last week, which I'm sure is due to my indulging on Saturday and Sunday. I did good today though...let it go Jan... - msdizmaui 518.7 #223 11:42PM
I don't feel like such a loser, knowing I'm not alone in my struggles! - vernswifevickie 325.7 #496 4:55AM
For some reason, I always have a hard time when the weather changes. It's been so hot here--we've been mid-upper 90s for the last 4-5 days! I overindulged, too. Yuck--back to normal today! - Spoonful_O_Sugar 435.8 #283 7:12AM

Hey everyone! I am going to start losing weight and getting into shape.. My goal is to run the Tinkerbell half in Jan.. I know I need to loose about 60lbs.. My current activity level is couch potato, mom taxi driver.. I have no clue where to start any advice is greatly appreciated
Welcome! Start by making small goals like jogging for 5 minutes then slowly work up to longer distances. There is a great training program by Jeff Galloway on the runDisney website. I used that to train for my first half and now I've done 9 half marathons. Good luck with your training! Keep us posted on your progress ✨ - PirateQueenBriezy 291.4 #660 9:11AM
good luck. I tip my hats off to runners. Even when I was in shape and serving our country as a Marine, I couldn't run to save my life. - GoofyMom77 108.5 #2920 4:18PM
Good for you. Set reasonable and achievable goals. Best of luck on your journey. Keep us posted. - Mrs.mouse 420.2 #306 10:45PM
Hi there! I think I said this on your post that was in the Hub the other night, but a lot of people start running with the Couch to 5K program, and then pick up the half marathon training from there. Good luck! Remember to set goals, stick to a reasonable plan, and feed your body well: if you're going to run, your body needs fuel! A lot of people try to cut their calories way low and end up burning out because they don't have the energy to keep training. Eat healthily and fuel your runs! - Spoonful_O_Sugar 435.8 #283 9:42AM

It's Wednesday!! I'm in the middle of week four Turbo Fire. Since starting I'm down 3lbs. I found at my local grocery store a cookbook/magazine that has 195 main dish recipes 300 calories or under from Cooking Light. I have to wait till this weekend to fully implement it, but I have tried some of the dishes with the ingredients I have at home. It has breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and soups/sal More...
That's fantastic! Way to go! Your making good choices everyday. - Mrs.mouse 420.2 #306 5:46PM
Cereal doesn't have to be bad, does it? I'd never survive on a diet if I had to cook every meal...that's why JC works for me! Stick with it GoofyMom (and feel free to let us know about the good recipes...as long as they're easy...lol) - msdizmaui 518.7 #223 1:06AM
Lol, cereal and egg whites are staples of my diet. I do love cooking, but I'm exhausted at the end of the day and, when I cook, I always end up eating too much, lol. - Spoonful_O_Sugar 435.8 #283 7:57AM
That's great! Let us know how the recipes go! - Spoonful_O_Sugar 435.8 #283 8:01AM

Happy Monday everyone. Set your goals for today and stick with it. Don't be afraid to tell yourself no. Stay on plan!
So true. I try to leave a 2 point snack for fun each day that was not on my meal plan. Otherwise it's all planned. - Plumiegirl 3322.0 #10 10:12PM
I do pretty well until I get off work, lol. I am doing better this week than I was last week, though! Things have been absolutely crazy here, but they're now calming down. - Spoonful_O_Sugar 435.8 #283 6:58PM
Same here SoS. Every night it's the same thing. Eat dinner...eat dessert (Jenny Craig of course), then scrounge to see what else I can get away with. Tonight it was strawberries, and 2 pieces of celery with peanut butter! I'm just so hungry!!! AGGHHHH! - msdizmaui 518.7 #223 1:01AM

I posted this in the lounge, but I wanted to be sure that MDM saw this. This is why this app is so much more than an app. I have had a lot of health problems over the past year. It has left me emotionally, physically, and hormonally drained. As I was in the middle of a hormonal moment, I needed some space. I told my husband I was going to get the mail. To my surprise I received a card from Msdizm More...

Hello, friends! We leave for Disneyland on Thursday. We are getting up at 4am and I have a feeling I won't sleep a wink that night. ;-) I'm not sure if I met my 10lb weight loss goal. I was half way there about a month ago. I haven't been counting or weighing weekly, but I've been watching what I eat and controlling my portions. I started emeals a couple weeks ago and it has completely changed ou More...
That's fantastic! I'm glad it's working for you. Have a great time in Disneyland. Have safe travels. - Mrs.mouse 420.2 #306 2:36PM
Great! It's how you feel that really matters--those numbers on the scale sometimes psyche me out. Enjoy your trip!! - Spoonful_O_Sugar 435.8 #283 6:56PM

I'm feeling very motivated today. I hope I can make this feeling last all week. Also, has anyone ever cooked with spaghetti squash. I picked one up and am not sure the best way to serve it.
I tried one once and it was a major failure (and it was supposedly a "can't fail" microwave recipe). I'd like to hear tips/suggestions on this one also. - msdizmaui 518.7 #223 10:48PM
It's been a while, but I cooked it once. I put it in the oven on a baking sheet. Cut length wise and seasoned with Olive Oil, salt & pepper. Then you can use a fork and it will shred. Maybe search Pinterest for some good recipes. I cant remember how long to bake it in the oven. - Fanatic4Disney 257.9 #926 11:39PM
I've never cooked one myself because I can't stand it, but this is how my mom always made spaghetti squash when I was a kid. - Spoonful_O_Sugar 435.8 #283 7:22AM
I put it into the steamer on the stove wait bout 7-10 minutes an then fork shred it out onto a plate. I squeeze a Meyer lemon and a paper thin bit a butter with lemon pepper and herbs sprinkled on it. Maybe a dash of Parmesan on it too. - Plumiegirl 3322.0 #10 10:22PM
The spaghetti squash turned out so well. I will be making it again. - Mrs.mouse 420.2 #306 2:41AM
What method did you use? I didn't like it so maybe I need to try a different way. Glad you liked it! - Fanatic4Disney 257.9 #926 10:03AM
I punctured holes in the spaghetti squash and boiled it for about 30 min. I then allowed it to cool, cut it along the equator scooped out the seeds, then used a fork to pull the strans. I put the squash into the sauce I had made and allow to cook for 30 min. I find that if its cooked more its not as crunchy and takes of a more pasta like texture. I made a light version of turkey tetrizinni with the squash. It was very good. - Mrs.mouse 420.2 #306 2:41PM
That sounds much better than what my mom used to make! Maybe I'll try spaghetti squash again... 😃 - Spoonful_O_Sugar 435.8 #283 6:55PM
Wow! Ill have to try that. When I made it, it still hade a crunchy/rough texture. - Fanatic4Disney 257.9 #926 9:19AM
