    Good morning, nutritional scientists and kinesiologists!

    I hit a new low this AM at 221.6.

    I turned to my weight loss graph on the diet and fitness tracker and, by golly, that line is trending ever so slightly south of horizontal. I am making progress. To review, my high weight was 265 in 2003. This round of health consciousness began March 15, 2013 at 235 pounds. So, let's see, I have discarded 43.5 pounds in 10 years. I should reach my goal weight in 20 more years, just in time to celebrate my 80th birthday. LOL.

    No, I am not discouraged. That's just my way of saying that I am on this road FOR LIFE. I am starting to feel better internally. More energy, more cheerful. I am sleeping less. Now this AM I woke up in agony skeletally. My spinal injury really hates being vibrated and I vibrated the heck out of it yesterday with that 1 mile walk. Okay, here's a little whisper to my spine: Get over it. You and I will both be happier if we take better care of the internal organs and that is what this is all about.

    I found out that an otherwise healthy black bean soup from "You on a diet" causes my blood sugar to soar. Gonna have to mark that yummy recipe off-limits.

    Breakfast:
    .5 c. rolled oats
    1 c. blackberries
    1 c. ff milk

    morning snack
    .5 oz almonds
    1 med. orange

    lunch;
    tossed salad
    chicken breast
    spritzed with olive oil and red wine vinegar

    pm snack
    raw veggies
    yogurt dip

    Have a GREAT day,
    Sharon

    Good morning all.

    Breakfast: the usual oatmeal, blueberries, walnuts and black coffee

    Lunch: on the go so probably will do the Subway turkey breast sub again

    Dinner: my sister had extra pork chops last night so I had that instead of chicken along with a big baby spinach and spring mix salad - Will have the baked chicken tenders tonight with 2 C. steamed broccoli and salad

    Snack: cantaloupe

    Will get a 3 mile run in today after work and errands are run. I can smell the weekend - phew, busy week.

    Hey Sharon. Hope your back feels better soon!

    Crummy about the bean soup. For me, it's one of my favorites. Is it the carbs in the beans that affect your blood sugar?

    Your choices so far look great! Have a good day too.

    Rachel,

    Yep I guess it's the beans. 2 cans of rinsed drained black beans went into a soup recipe yielding 10 servings. I didn't look at the carbs until AFTER I had eaten it. 71 grams of Carbs means 5 diabetic exchanges and I am only allowed 130 grams or 8 per day. Too much all at once.

    I WALKED even with the pain. Only 21 min. only .9 miles but still!

    And I am only doing this well because of you all. Your encouragement and the ability to feel connected through this site is making all the difference to me.

    Sharon,

    Do you do any stretches or any thing for your back??
    What does your pain management involve??
    If there is one thing i know about.... IT IS PAIN MANAGEMENT. LOL

    I have been through plenty of surgaries and my husband has broke his back twice (he is only 23!!). He just works to hard for his own good.

    And niether of us take narcotics for our pain, it is all managed though streches, topical creams and herbal medications.

    Please let me know if i can help =D

    Sharon,
    Now you have to recalculate. You haven't just lost a total of 43.5lbs in 10 years.
    From my standpoint, you've lost 13.4 lbs in 105 days.
    Calculated from this , reaching your goal should take about 2.5 years. NOT 20.
    How many "diets" have you tried, up until finding your path to THIS journey?
    Law of averages suggests that you are going to succeed at one of them. Why not THIS one?

    1/4 cup peas
    1 cup spinach
    1 carrot

    Keep eating well Laura. Getting healthier and losing weight helps with sleep apnea too. I'm sure you knew that. And obviously the foot pain and the stress on other joints and your back will decrease as direct results of your ongoing regimn.

    Hope you feel better. Chin up little girl. You are still doing great.
