Been away from the thread for a while, so I was glad to see Dani inquiring and kinda prompted me to get back into the thread. Congrats Dani!

I'm down 7 lbs, but more importantly, recently purchased pants for the expanding waistline are now too big! I'm pretty much in the routine now of running 4 days per week and bodypump class 2 days per week. I slacked off Saturday and Sunday (had a Sunday Funday) so now I feel blobish.

Good news for weight loss is the wife and I agreed to give up beer for Lent ( shocked shocked shocked I know)...this might be the hardest Lent I've ever had...but should do wonders for the waistline and geting me ready for the 10k in April.

Mani--I totally feel like that. I was very surprised I had lost weight over the last week+. Was definitely from my new food habits.

Skittles--Drink lots of water and stretch today!

Quatro--Awesome news on the new wardrobe!

Thanks - I'm very diligent on drinking water while I'm at work.

Sorry you were ill BBB1. That's a horrible way to lose weight.

Where the heart is
My PT has been kicking my butt now that we are in the "toning" phase of the workout plan. I am now aware of muscles that I never knew I had!

But the scale was a little kinder to me on Sunday - finally showed 3 more pounds lost. I am wearing a belt today with pants I bought at Express in December - they are now a little too big in the waist but I'm not ready to toss 'em yet!

25 more pounds to go! (Or 30 if I want to push my goal out a little more.)

PR - I ordered the cinnamon capsules on Saturday. I'm hoping they help curb my cravings for sweets or pretzels, although I've been pretty good about avoiding too many snacks for the most part.

PR can fill you in more than I can. They apparently regulate your blood sugar and I may not crave sweets or bready snacks much any more. That's what I'm hoping anyway. There is a link (may be in the Weight Watcher thread) to a website to purchase these - that's what I used to order. It was $15.00 for a two month supply (you take two twice a day) plus shipping of $9.00. I figured I could spend $24.00 on myself.

Just popped in real quick to say, if you search "cinnamon" for the past couple of months, you'll find a number of posts about it.

Skittles - let me know when you get it and if you notice a difference. Most people notice right away that they don't get cravings during the day after taking it.

I'm giving them a try because I'm a sugar freak. I did notice that when I burp it's cinnamon flavored.

I'm not a cinnamon fan, so burping it all day would be an issue. Do you take it with food? If so, have you tried refrigerating them and taking it cold? That works with some things (fish oil for instance).

Now that is a mental image that will help me avoid cinnamon rolls, and thus remain successful in my new eating habits!

That brought a smile to my face...Cinnabon anyone? It's powdered cinnamon in the capsules and it's only right after I eat and then take them. I don't burp it all day...unlike the onion in the pot roast I had for lunch yesterday.... sick

If you really want a treat, take coconut oil capsules along with the cinnamon, then you'll be burping the equivalent of a Samoa cookie! (sans the calories!)

In the old west (and still a few places today) cinniamon rolls, donuts and fritters were referred to as "bear sign", because they looked like bear poop.
True Story.... smile

Similar to a cow pie or rocky mountain oysters.

For those from non agricultural backgrounds (or the terminaly stoopid), don't eat a cowpie if offered. Contrary to what you may have been told, they are NOT just like chicken pot pies only with cow. wink

Now you tell me. It took me half a bottle of ketchup to choke down that one I had in Tulsa.

Where the heart is
Reminds me of a popular song on the Dr. Demento Show:

Moose Turd Pie
Quote:
I got it down there and leaned it up against the side and I climbed up in the cook car, and I baked a [censored] of a big pie shell. And I baked that moose turd in as slick as you please. And I cribbed it with my thumbs, and laid strips of dough across it, & garnished it with a sprig of parsley, a little paprika. It was beautiful; poetry on a plate.

And I served it up for dessert, waiting for the first hint of a complaint. Well, this giant dude comes in, about 5 foot 40; I mean he was big. Throwed himself down like a fool on a stool. Picked up his fork. Took a big bite of that moose turd pie. Well, he threw down his fork, and he let out a bellow, and he yelled..

"My God! That's Moose Turd Pie! ... It's Good, Though!"

Any natural supplements that curb the craving for salt? I don't eat sweets - but salt is my weakness!

I got the cinnamon capsules yesterday and started taking them. Hopefully they will keep me out fo the wonderful cookies my husband baked on Saturday. I've fallen off of the wagon for the last 4-5 days, but today I'm back on <hopefully>.
