He's gone again. Where is he? Did I scare him away?
I found out what derailed me and I am back on track. It was as small as a cereal bar for breakfast. Seemed like a good idea but that one little cereal bar set up the carb cravings for the day. I ran out of them and didn't get to the store to buy more for a couple days, suddenly realized the cravings were gone again!
Maybe it is small things like this that is throwing you off. Or maybe you have just been to busy to post and are doing ok. Who knows? 1816 days ago
Very glad to see you back, had just about given you up for dead! Or maybe you took off with Joanna J., she dropped out at the same time!
So I'm giving you an assignment. I want you to write a long blog about where you have been, what you were doing and what caused you to take your eye off the ball. I haven't been doing all that great, I gained ten back and havn't taken it off my ticker cause I'm going to get it back off! Even so I stayed with SP tracking my food everyday. So you have some atonement to do! If you don't want to share all the gory truth you can create a journal page and keep it private.
I had been eatig a Fiber One Cereal bar for breakfast for the last two months to increase my fiber intake. And maybe because they are good. They have a good amount of fiber, carbs not to bad, tastes like candy. Well if it tastes like candy I guess it is. I have not been able to resist ANYTHING for the last two months, you name it I ate it. Then I ran out of the fiber one bars and decided not to get anymore. A couple of days later and I think my craving is gone again. I'm thinking the way to get rid of cravings is to not eat any prosessed food.
I've also been reading Dr. Bernstiens "Diabeties Solution" book. It's got me scared straight. I haven't reached the nutrition part of the book yet.
Well Richard, it may be cliche but it's true. Everyday is a new day! Welcome back! 1829 days ago
Sounds like you've got a plan that works for you and that's terrific!
I don't know if you're aware of it but you can plan your meals--and the occasional treats--up to a week in ADVANCE on the nutrtion tracker! And you can even print out a grocery list... your wife might like that aspect of it! LOL
It really helps me since I'm on a renal diet and there are so many factors to juggle... I can tweak things before I hit print so I get the sodium and phosphorus levels etc that I'm after. It has made my life SO much easier!
It's true too, you get some great advice from the team members--I love the folks here! Glad you joined us!...
