Made tofu stir fry tonight. Very yummy!! I have two servings left so I'm bringing it to work for lunch Friday and monday. Glad I have another pack of tofu in the fridge. Janet please try the recipe I posted. That's how I made the stir fry. Instead of eating it like a lettuce wrap i added broccoli, onion, and more bell pepper. I have sugar free rice vinegar and I used siracha instead of the chili paste the recipe called for. I haven't made the veggie lasagna yet. Will try for it next week after I go to the farmers market.

I have been better on eating and working out. Not going to go on the scale . My focus is on eating right and exercise. Next week fiancee and I will both be adding weight training. Going to do cardio daily at the fitness center at work and weight training at the gym with him three times a week. We plan on going hiking at Letchworth on Saturday. Hoping to keep this up this time.
I am glad South beach is flexible. I like being able to eat a variety of foods. I am going to try to go meatless at least one day aweek. Hope everyone is doing well! Please check in and keep me posted.

Hi; Maral{Lisa?
I will go back and try that recipe. I really like to learn how to make things with it. I also seen you can make Pudding? I will also add to Green smoothies also.

I got a brand That is organic super firm by. nasoya.
Thinking that when I have tried toful before maybe not taking out the water that is left in the Toful itself. So looks like [Until I open this brand has no water or very very little.

Today making chill{White but will also add little chicken along with the toful and white beans.
I think also it is a very good think to go at least 1-2 days with out meat. As long as you up protien with others stuff.

I also want to do weight training.As instead of walking {Which I can do at home on tredmil. And do weights 2 days a week and in few weeks get into the sauna.I also have to watch not worrying so much on numbers on scale.
I still having a little hard time.
But I just have to know I have done this before and keep true and Now have to just hit it.
I think I just get bored.
I got tea yesterday and should drink that. I also strted drinking coffee{Nothing in it and I put in glass and add lots of ice,{Ice coffee.
The only think that having chilly{Home made I do not know cals on it. on bowl.
{I use soup bowl cups.
seems like you and I are pretty close on what we do with our plan.
Life is what u make it and it might as will be a good healthy one. U feel so much better.

Izzy> Where Are you?
You are so strong too . As long as we post and keep talking it will help so much.
I will let you girls know how chill comes out with toful> Did you read that Izzy.? Toful
get book on South beach and just read and get more tips. But I eat that way any way. Clean and good foods and low carb. But health carbs and good fats.
I think also Diet pop may be hurting me and more cals last few days then I need.
Later girls.
Going to go get hair trimed.
Go Girls. Better health and mind and a great life.

doing good so far since Monday. I have an app on my phone that calculates calories, carbs, protein and fat. I have been using that to make sure I am not eating too many calories. I am very glad that south beach is so flexible that I can pretty much eat a variety of things (including my protein, tofu, and veggie burgers). I am working out at the fitness center at work but need to get to the gym on the weekend. still not doing weight training. with my membership I am allowed to bring a guest. I am having a hard time getting my fiancée to go with me. I think I am going to see if anyone I know on facebook would like to workout with me. I really hate going bymyself but I know I need to put myself first. I am also hoping to keep this going. I just don't want to binge on carbs anymore!!

janet and izzy! please check in!! I hope you guys are doing awesome!! seriously cant tell you how glad I am that you are here.

Maral,
It is hard is it not? Some times it goes great and We really are watching And then some how{Off we go~ not a good road.
This year has been really hard for me.
I'm getting back on track and small Smoothies.
And watching calaries and making better chouces.{But some times not as easy.
But I feel great and must say look good too. Now Not as low in weight as I thought I would be by now.
If I lived near you. I would be your gym body.
But u work really hard.
I got water cress today.and a Egg plant.
I really thing that calaries and the type of foods we pick is the key.
Good carbs vers bad and good fats vers bad fat.
And sugar bad.
And we have to move that body and build muscle.
As we age it is harder.
And when we lose weight that also means cals should be lower too.
Any diet plan works.
Just keep going and keep posting.

I hope Izzy has not fallen to bad and has just fallen to deep.]Izzy, We are here and get back on track. We all fall. It just how long?
We can do this. and We are.
Maybe by 1st. of the New year we can get more to joining. But
I will stay with u Maral and yes u 2 Izzy.[Get back.
2 Weeks left of this month. I sure hope 2-3 lbs gone.

Hi janet. How are you? I am due next month for my blood work as well. I was very low.on vitamin d to the point that doctor had to prescribe me vitamin d. From my limited understanding i think it's supposed to contribute to depression? I have been very careful.and I have been making sure I take my vitamins and supplements. I really wasn't care in the past.

If you live in colder areas like I do the weather doesn't help either. You can do this!!! I bet you in when you get on the scale you will see a loss. You have been doing very well!! You are a very healthy eater which is amazing!!!

Today is a very boring uneventful day. This morning I woke up early, prepped dinner for tonight. Made fiancee peach cobbler and we are having roasted chicken for sweetest day. I am going to have sugar free jello tonight. That way I have a great when he eats that. Also went to the gym today and made myself cauliflower soup. I made it the same way as the zucchini soup ( broth onion garlic and veggies). I don't add grated cheese or sour cream to it.

Tonight we are just going to have a relaxing dinner and watch movies on netflix. It is cold and rainy outside so tonight is a perfect movie night.

Izzy hope you are doing well! Please post and.let us know how you are! Have a wonderful day ladies. Please check in and let me know how you are doing.

Good morning Janet and izzy. How are you both doing. Please post and check in.

I made a huge roasted chicken in the crockpot yesterday. We have a ton of chicken meat left so I have going to repurpose it into two other meals. My fridge is full of leftovers. Honestly it is going to make the week easier as far as cooking.

Today I am going to the gym shortly and then going.to organize and take an inventory of what is in my back freezer. That way I know what we need to stock up on. We have bad winters. There have been several times where we have had seven feet of snow. I always make sure we are stocked up on food and pet supplies

Well ladies. Hope you both have a wonderful day! Hope all is well.
