I'm already beginning to slow down. I am trying my hardest to not cheat. They're bringing donuts to work again (the bad side to working in a police station, right?). I was prepared this time and took my lunch. After work I went to SuperTarget to pay my bill, errrgh. Then I headed back to Penney's for some more clearance. I was looking for a nice coat but they only had X-Large and one small left. I got the small of a microsuede coat with faux fur inside for my daughter. It felt so yummy soft! If she doesn't like it, hopefully by next winter it will fit me!! Yea!! I was looking for a bomber jacket but I only found the ones in the mens department made of corduroy and much cheaper but I didn't buy it since I splurged on the coat for my daughter. Man do I love clearance prices. Anyway not much to do today except catch up on my soaps (Y&R) and clean my kitchen. Yes, I've neglected it again, but now that I'm on P2 again, it should keep me busy from wanted to eat everything I see on tv while I'm loafing. I went to Wal*Mart this morning and bought my Women's World weekly magazine and some tv dinners my daughter has been bugging me for. She knows that when I'm in P2 there isn't much variety for her because I will not cook a seperate meal for her. I know that's mean but I can not have temptation around me. Don't get me wrong, I make plenty of P2 friendly foods such as fish and veggies so that she can have a normal sized portions rather than measured like mine. She likes fish but not chicken. I just remembered I forgot to buy some Morning Star grillers. Those are the best tasting vegan burgers out there. The Boca are okay but Morning Star is way ahead in the game. I have to try and hide these from daugher because she actually likes them!! Oh, well, guess I'll have to make another trip to the store tomorrow or Monday. Oh yes, I have Monday off, wooo hooo!! I'll be off on Friday as well since it's my birthday!! Then I'll be off the following Monday as well. I'm on a 3 day weekend then I'll have a 4 day weekend. Wow!!

Have I mentioned that when I'm on P2 I get ADHD? I get so hyper and clearheaded that I can't type because my mind is going 500 miles per second and my typing is only 65 words per minute. So I'm apologizing now to everyone because during these times my comments and blogging don't make sense sometimes. My mind feels like Taz and I just wish my body could keep up as well. Man, if that was the case, my entire house would be spiffy, inside and out!! Ha! Since I can't concentrate on one thing I begin a bunch of projects then I can't finish one. Someday I'll get it right. I joined Flylady but that's getting a little crazy with all the emails.

Alright enough mumbling here's yesterday's menu:
Breakfast: 1st cup (12 oz) of coffee w/2 pkts Splenda and 1/2 & 1/2, 2 more cups (12 oz) of black coffee
Lunch: one Boca burger w/tsp of salsa and a tbls. of yellow mustard, 3 cups steamed broccoli, 1 grapefruit
Dinner: cabbage celery soup, minimum broth, steamed tilapia atop the soup, 1 small orange

I tried something a bit different in my soup yesterday. I added a bit of fresh parsley, a dash of cayenne pepper, black pepper, garlic powder (too lazy to chop fresh), and a dash of cinnamon, yes cinnamon. The cinnamon actually tasted sweet but I was going for savory. It was okay but not to die for. I'm not sure if I will try that again but it did give it a unique flavor. Maybe if I hadn't the fish so maybe I'll try it with the chicken. Hmmm, more experimenting to be had.

Miz Biz, I did better yesterday and took my lunch to work with me. I can't wait to see your progress when you begin P2 again, you'll be on my heels and probably zoom right by me, we'll just have to see!

Ed&Jen, wow thanks for stopping by and you two are doing fantastic!! I'm sure you can freeze shredded cheese if its the packaged kind since it contains cornstarch or some type of flour to keep it from sticking together. If its freshly grated cheese, I wouldn't recommend it, but personally I have never froze shredded cheese, just bulk or blocks. Oh, and Jen, I really envy you at your weight right now, I can't wait till I arrive there!!

Crystal, yes unfortunately I have the card too!! I gave up my Macy's card a few years back, but I love my Penney's clearance! They closed the outlet Penney's a couple of years ago but the went and built a brand new one very close to my home!! Talk about wanting my money!! I'm trying not to buy too many clothes because I want to save that for when I'm a much smaller size! Oh, and they are building a new Savers close by as well, man I am going to be broke!!

Renee, thanks for stopping by, I know you are very busy and congrats on your losses as well. When you have a chance, I wanted to find out how you put bullets in your layout, can you show or tell me how?

What...2.6 is NOT slowing down-awesome! You totally crack me up! I can so relate to several things in your blog. I always say "yummy soft" I am a freak about soft blankets, pillows, clothes it's just so...well, yummy! Secondly, I am also ADHD while on HCG (that rhymes-go figure)!

Now about your comment regarding no one noticing your 30 lb weight loss-trust me they noticed they are too jealous to say anything! I have lost well...30 lbs as well and only close family have said anything (barely), I think it's so interesting because I'm always quick to give encouragement and compliments when I see people have lost weight since (knowing it's such a hard thing to do)! No worries girlfriend, soon enough they will start askin!

We all have our own ideas on what the perfect weight is and "if I could only weigh..." even with me at a lower LIW we are all going through very similar journeys. Like I've mentioned since I'm short even 10 lbs. makes me look like a Chunky Monkey!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I was just reading up on your recent posts. What a pretty page you have. Purple is my absolute favorite color.

2.6?! That's not slow. I know you want to get below your last LIW quickly & it'll happen. You're doing great.

Wow Mary you're just melting! Way to go! I have not had too many comments except from people who know that i've been dieting either. So maybe it's the way we're dressing too. I'm like you and don't want to buy new clothes until I lose down to a smaller size so I'm wearing pants that are a size or two too big. Some I will take up on the sewing machine but usually I just leave them baggy. Then no one can see what size I really am. Not for long though! I'm going to fit in my next sizes in the boxes I've got stashed away pretty soon!

WOOT! I am glad your clear headed, I just LOVE posts like this! It says something tho doesn't it Mary about the effect that junk processed food does to our bodies AND our minds!

Your funny, 2.6 is NOT slowing down, this is AWESOME!

I wont know anything until Wednesday morning - that will be my first day VLCD completed! UGH! I should have started earlier. I have actually gotten jealous of all of you on P2 already!
