Default the Diabetic Exchange plan...going back to basics!

I woke up this morning with a thought. If I don't eat enough and I gain weight, and if I eat too much I gain weight, then obsessing about what, when and how much I eat is not going to improve my life today.

So instead of giving up entirely, I am going to go back to basics...the Diabetic exchange. 8 servings of protein, 6 servings of carbs, 4 of fat, 5 of veggies and 2 of fruit. if I get this much during the day I have eaten enough and if I eat more, I am not going to beat myself up, just try and shoot for it the next day.

I always say one has to be there for themselves, who else will?? So here I am practicing what I preach! no weighing and measuring, no strict calorie counting, just an approximate amount to remain healthy, one day at a time!

Well, for today anyway, I reserve the right to change my mind tomorrow!

The glass of water is what it is,
it's only our own perception that tells us
whether or not it's half empty or half full...
it's a Choice!!!

I feel the same way Ang, I am hoping to eat healthier and healthier each day AND moving more and more. Good luck sweetie


Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."
