Well - you asked for it, you got it.

let's do this a little differently, though. I suggest that we each open a post, and then, instead of adding a post each time we eat something or exercise, we simply EDIT the original post. This should make it easier for us to see what we're doing. If you think your original post is getting too full, then of course open another one...

we can track by MEALS, but since so many of us don't eat actual meals, we can also do it by time

7 am
8 am
9 am
10 am
11 am
12 noon
1 pm
2 pm
3 pm
4 pm
5 pm
6 pm
7 pm
8 pm
9 pm
10 pm
11 pm

And yes, we can carry it out that late - at my 6-month appt with the dietician, she said that i wasn't eating enough and needed a bedtime snack of cheese! worked for me!

so, have at it - and don't forget to track water and exercise, too.

we can ALL be happier and healthier in 2013. right??

My goals are to stay around 1000-1200 calories daily, 70 grams protein, drink @ least 10 glasses of water & walk 1/2 hr. or more daily. I usually eat Breakfast, Lunch, Afternoon Snack, Dinner, Evening snack. (Every 3-4 hrs). I'm not sure what a good limit for the carbs & fat is, Jiffy (or anyone) what is recommended for us WLS folks?
