    I microwaved a bag of frozen mixed veggies since that's about all I had at home and I was too tired and not feeling well...sounds pretty bad but it really wasn't because this mix had a few baby potatoes in it. :)

    Yesterday I made meatballs, tomato sauce; today I braised a pot roast to have with some kind of frozen veggie. I'll see what's in the freezer later.

    Thanks, Ruby....but not really. Just started my antibiotic dose, so hopefully soon!


    Think I'll have the same thing for dinner as I had for lunch....Trader Joe's Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup. Might make some sort of grilled cheese type sandwich to go with it if I feel up to it.

    No we don't have any appetite due to the Kefir and Lisa is on a losing weight regime before she comes to the UK at the end of the month, where she always puts on weight. :)

    @Terry Page , Lisa looks a lot thinner in the last pic I saw of her....I'm sure she doesn't need to lose too much and you need to gain. ;)

    I could never eat just one meal a day, I eat something every 2 hours.:)

    I used to do the eat every two hours or 6 small meals a day, and then the 5/2 fasting diet, but life is much simpler on one meal a day plus kefir, also I am never hungry.
    I am a steady 155 lbs which suits my build, Lisa keeps her weight a secret :rolleyes: but dipping below normal gives capacity for over-eating when in the UK ;)

    Okay...I always worry when at my daughter's or my son's that I will gain because of all the eating out and the types of food in their pantries like cookies and chips, etc.

    I never gain though, think it's all the extra activity.

    I didn't have dinner yet but plan on an omelet ...shredded swiss and gruyere cheese, tomatoes, and spinach inside.

    That's all I'm capable of after just eating soup since yesterday.

    We went out for supper on Friday night..
    We went food shopping and were way too tired and lazy to go home and cook something, so we shared a pizza ...
    To me it was like a vacation not having to cook supper..
    Now, as far as Saturday goes, back to normal, (whatever normal is) and something for supper..
    I have NO idea what to make but I will come up with something............................ soon !!!!!!

    I can't tell you how often that I go grocery shopping and find that I do stop on the way home to pick up a pizza or go through to a fast food joint. :) I am glad I am not the only one that purchases food and they doesn't want to take the time to cook anything for dinner.
    Last night I had turkey and dressing for dinner. I will be having that for around a month. :) I am calculating how many different ways to there are to eat a 19 lb turkey. I think it's Turkey Taco Salad tonight.

    How do you not gain weight? If I ate like you I'd be huge! Must be my slow thyroid. I eat Kale, and never eat dessert. :(

    Chrissy, I only eat one meal a day. Also, most days I do laps at my friend's salt water pool.

    Chrissy, this body stores calories like a plant stores photosynthesis. Lol. If I ate several times a day, I would weigh two hundred pounds.
