    Default Did it! One successful day under my belt

    and btw, a belt that has stretched too far.

    Was a former WW that got to lifetime many years ago, stopped tracking and here I am, not at my highest, but a steady 6 - 10 pounds a year gain over the past couple of years.
    Don't like counting points, but do like eating well, so the old Core plan was good for me. Not sure what it is called now but am using it again

    Yesterday
    yogurt, oatmeal and berries
    3 bean chili
    mandarin oranges
    salad with lean diced ham and olive oil
    beef and stir fried vegetables in the other oil
    cold plain cereal and skim milk
    yogurt and berries
    oatmeal
    multi vitamin
    exercycled 15 minutes

    Thanks Superbowl

    Today
    plain yogurt
    oatmeal
    berries
    3 bean chili
    vegetable soup
    egg cooked in oil
    skim milk

    Snack: "interesting" shake made by one of my kids - wasn't sure I would like it as it sure looked strange, but it tasted ok and actually met my fruit and vegetable quota for the day so not a bad deal.

    leftover stir fried beef and vegetables
    plain cold cereal with milk

    They threw in the blender a banana, some frozen diced mango, 6 cups of spinach ( actually frozen one ounce cubes but each is equal to a cup) and I think some frozen blackberries or blueberries. Added water and blended until smooth. Made 2 very large mugs and I drank one insteadof my usual afternoon coffee.

    feeling pretty good finishing up day three -

    had as much food as I wanted to feel full but not stuffed.
    Pretty much the same foods as yesterday. Went to Burger King with one of my kids - ordered the vegetarian burger and took the top bun off also popped a chocolate into my mouth before I remembered i was saving points for the weekend So not too bad all in all.

    yeah, not too bad loaded with the pickle, lettuce and tomato and some mustard. Not my favourite but willing to compromise if I do not have to count the burger

    Today also went well food wise
    yogurt and fruit in the morning
    ( I mix a small bag of frozen fruit and a large container of plain ff yogurt in a mixing bowl and leave in the fridge - usually not too hungry in the morning and this gets in a fruit and dairy serving plus my wife likes it so I score a point there

    leftover 3 bean chili for lunch

    ham and tossed salad for dinner with a banana and a few mandarin oranges

    cold cerea adn skim milk for evening snack

    billy, sounds like you are doing great! Just be sure that cold cereal is a power food! Which one are you eating?

    the cold cereal is plain shredded wheat or plain oats soaked in milk.

    Glad Christmas eating is over - the meal was fine, turkey, wax beans and a glass of wine. The desserts were an issue as were the before meal snacks. So ,even though I ate much less than usual it was still more than the 35 WPA's. Threw out a bunch of high calorie leftovers, and packaged the rest into gifts for work, and kids heading back to college.
    Back to plain, simple foods tomorrow.
