April, wow, thanks for telling us about your great exercise. You are working so hard and it's reflecting on the scale. Plus you're setting such a good example for the rest of us. Kudos on a job well done!
Day 1 of 21-Day Mindset Makeover (metabolism jumpstart)
Not an excuse--just an explanation: I could have done better had I been more diligent, but I was working on a computer issue and just didn't take the time I should have on tracking my carbs. Went over 6g which is a lot when doc and I agreed I should have no more than 25g net per day to keep my blood sugar normal without meds. 3 extra grams were from a second serving of almonds and the other 3 extra were just small things that added up.
