Default Lo Carb #5 Spring renews hope

Well we are at #5 thread. Still very quiet. But thinking that progress is fast lets you down in the long run. Remembering that every victory keeps you on the path on health. Avoiding a co-workers candy dish, pushing your plate away when you are full, going that little bit extra on the exercise machine are all things to be recognized and congradulated for. Forgiving yourself for the litle slips, that is important too. This is a process which will take time.

I saw 249#'s yesterday!!! Working out eating right! So it was a good day.

Hey marge how are you?

Hey Sue!

Off to face the world

Have to get ready for work but will check in later.

Hi,Lisa and welcome!
A pound gone is an awesome thing! Looks like you have made good progress so far. I like the south beach way of doing lo carb.

Hi, regeton. I would look up teh glycemic index on teh internet and then go through the list and look for foods that have a lo value. That might help you w/ your food choices. ALso look for Kashi Go lean cereal. That might fix your craving in a better way.

I am still on the healthy path! It seems a little easier now that it is lighter later. Can't wait for day light savings time

Hey Sue and Marge how goes it?

Sue Ia m glad to see you. I hadn't realized that you had changed job locations. Job stress sucks, and for me it offers me reasons not to take care of myself. I am glad you are finding away out and are recognizing the need to care for yourself. I advise you to take 2 weeks off right in a row!if you have never done it you'll love it, take it off before the kids are off so it can be Sue time!

I got a PM from the plattsburgh person too.

I saw the scale move, and wore 22 pants yesterday so progress is being made.

Come on woman and grab my hand teh bus us moving!!!

Monday! always an opportunity to reorganize. Read a great prevention mag that talked about insulin resistance and eating and exercise.
Dh is doing great w/ his w/o and eating. Probably do better if his wife hired out the shopping. Ate some simple carbs this weekend. Retaining some fluid.

Weekends are so hard. I am so tired from teh week, I don't wake up until sun afternoon. Should be lesson free for a couple of weeks. I have been doing some online courses and it seems that I havev't been free since the first of teh year.

Het Sue how was your weekend?

Lurkers welcome!

Well today I am back and It is a wonder that I have been here two days in a row. I hope some day Pat and the others will find me here again but I am not going to call them as I have been too bad about staying so if I do not stay then so be it.

I did not eat good yesterday I had two hamburgers and some fries too many for dinner. so far today I had a cookie not good but I need to slowly get back into the groove. I will work on my fluid intake today and hot to get that up there. I have a half galon jug for fluids and hot to fill that up twice today.

Other than that Hi who stops by and visits.
