Well, I am up about a lb from the ticker, but the same on MFP so show no gain officially there. However, I did my monthly measures this morning and didn't look at all of them just the ones I put on MFP (never added them there till today) and I've lost about 3" officially on MFP and probably more if I had checked the others. So not really too bad considering how things went food wise the past few days.

I did my MFP food plan for today before I went to bed. I like to have a guide. I'm going to eat the carbs, but use the idea I read in one of the articles Carol Sue shared. I will use the 12 -20 grams idea eat no more than 20 grams at a meal and see how that works. I'm drinking the ACV water before meals. It's good for digestion any way.

I had oatmeal for breakfast. Used the fruit etc and ate about half a serving except with the yogurt which I only had 1/3 serving and may have to cut it back to 1/4 because I don't like soggy oatmeal. I'm using 1 tsp coconut oil in the oatmeal.

I've got boneless babyback ribs very lean that I found at Sam's and we will have that today. I will have greens and DH will have broccoli and I've got brown rice planned to go with it. I will have a salad with baked chicken tenderloins cut up in it for dinner with ACV and EVOO. I'll have celery with whipped PB for a snack tonight. Today is my 3 mile stationary bike ride which will help too. FBS was 150 this morning. So I'm pleased with that. I will never understand how we can rock along with good fbs for a few days and then all of a sudden have a swing up in the 180s like I did last week. I sure hope to get in the 140s this week. But it does seem to work in a way that I don't understand.

Carol Sue Your roast sounds so good. I've been wanting a pork roast, but haven't found a pretty one that is fairly lean. We lost our 2 Bi-Lo grocery stores here and I have to go to another town to shop at one. We used to go eat close to one on Sundays after church, but just can't do that now with economy like it is. We don't eat out as much as we used to either. DGS hasn't decided what he is doing for spring break yet and may have to feed him for a week. So kind of holding on to money as much as I can right now. Any way, Publix bought out our Bi-Lo stores and isn't supposed to be open until next year. They are a little more expensive, but if they do like they did in FL, they have healthier foods... especially "fresh" fish and good meats. I'll be glad when they open. I've never eaten parsnips. I knew they were higher carbs, but since I'm allowing more carbs in my way of eating, I just may try them.

Some how this posted before I was finished. I agree with Carol Sue we are shooting for a better March. I think we are all doing better because WE NO LONG GIVE UP. WE PICK UP OURSELVES AND GET BACK OP. NO MORE of those "I blew so I may as well eat". We are LEARNING TO DO THIS RIGHT!!! YAY!!!

I personally call that a HUGE accomplishment!!!! WE CAN AND WE WILL DO THIS!!!

I cannot do this on my own, but I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me.
