  • Not Eating After 8 p.m. - 4th Report

    5/21/2016 9:13:39 PM, by CLAIREMZM

    I have learned that I should not post earlier than 9 o'clock about my eating. I ended up eating later last night! 2 I didn't go bonkers, but I went over calories. Not by a huge amount, but still, over. But I ate because I was hungry and working on a project and wanted the energy. It's debatable as ... Read more

    John realizes that Chemo is his only option. He talks freely of death and Heaven. There are places he wants to see and places to eat. That is something he has control over. Whatever he wants and we possibly can do, we will see he gets what he wants. Lord, have Mercy!... Read more

    5/19/2016 10:45:51 PM, by CLAIREMZM

    Today I ate after 8, but the reason was that I did so well in my food choices that I had calories to spare! So I ate a high fiber english muffin, which put me pretty close to my fiber goal and at the lower end of the calorie range. Hooray!... Read more

    5/18/2016 9:56:33 PM, by CLAIREMZM

    Well...I'm doing about 50/50 at this point. On Sunday I ate after 8 because I forgot it was after 8! On Monday, I think I managed to not eat after 8, but I ate a lot of things I shouldn't have.

    This week I'm experimenting with not eating after 8 p.m. I came upon this idea when I thought that maybe my late night eating was keeping me from falling asleep. I've done this for the past few nights, but I'll count tonight as my first day of my experiment.... Read more

  • Keeping Myself Accountable - Days 5, 6 and 7

    5/14/2016 10:43:54 AM, by CLAIREMZM

    I guess I could call this an experimental week. I was able to avoid sweets entirely only for two days. However, on the days I did eat sweets, I didn't eat as much as I have in the past, so I consider that a victory. And I lost almost half a pound this week, so at least the scale was encouraging. ...

  • Keeping myself accountable

    5/6/2016 10:32:04 AM, by CLAIREMZM

    So, I gained weight this week. I know why. It's because I haven't changed my eating habits. I keep "saying" I need to lay off the sweets, but the "saying" hasn't translated to "doing" yet. So, for the sake of accountability, I'm going to blog each day for a week about how I did in the area of s... Read more
