Mern - I also have scheduled snacks - midmorning, midafternoon, & 8 pm. I should probably consider having a later one too - both my mother and maternal grandmother were diabetic. So far Iím okay, but I am trying to eat to keep blood sugar levels on an even keel.

velmasue2 - Welcome. Like you, I lost weight then gained in back in the last 3 years. For the first 35 years of my life, I was one of those annoying people who could eat whatever they want and not gain weight, so I didnít have to pay that much attention to how I was eating. Now, at age 61, Iím hoping to really develop good habits this time.

Someone asked if my goal of 1 hr of movement a day was weekly or daily - daily! Rain here today, so no yard work. Exercise bike and instead.

I enjoy reading the daily menus - some good ideas there!

Hi! Just started this week
I'm really going to try to log every bite I eat for the rest of this week. The first day was annoying, because I had so many custom foods to create. But once this first week is over, it will be easy because most of the foods I eat will be in there!
My goal for this and next week is not to overeat on days that I work out. I use that as an excuse to eat a second supper and dessert after the game/workout, which I shouldn't do anymore.

Hey all...am reading but not keeping up too well. It doesn't look like I have a breather till Friday. So new goals...be smart, make good choices. That's about all this busy week will afford for the next couple days. Congrats to all who are doing well; hugs if you aren't. Let's all make today a good one . Miss you guys.

Default Tues. Report

  • Workout > 30 mins x 4: N, Y
  • Cholesterol < 250mg: 111, 230

  • Sugar < (??? g): ~, Exemplary,

Big workout. Big Protein. Cholesterol not too bad. No sweets (the only things w/ sugar were half a very small baked potato, carrots, & one piece of whole wheat bread at lunch). I guess avocados are a fruit, or I would have made the veggie goal also. Overall a good day.

Ok, I won't carp now. But... I can, and do, make inferences based on the lack of a quick response on their part.
