I had finally gotten back on track after gaining back most of the weight I lost a couple of years ago. I was keeping track of calories, riding my bike every day and had established a strength training routine. Then Monday morning I was 3 miles into a...

I have to say, as an overweight karate instructor, this is the one patch that I was ok with never getting. A month ago I was issued a challenge by my instructor to earn it and tonight, I got it. And this comes after 60 pound weight loss since ...

Curious - Can probiotics help in reducing weight? As in, does probiotics help in boosting metabolism in anyway or do probiotic strains have bacteria that aid in weight loss.

25 April 2020 - Diet Diary - Not quite as good a day today but not bad. Got my order of roasted pumpkin seeds today, ahead of expected date. Since my out of town shopping is curtailed, have had trouble getting these without paying a ridiculous ...

24 April, 2020 - Diet Diary - Made it 3 days now. Was able to keep intake in reasonable range, seeing some results on the scale. Made a great soup today, cauliflower, carrots, potatoes, butternut squash, ham & cream🙄. Not exactly "LITE" soup ...

23 April, 2020 - Diet Diary - Well, I may have actually put two days of control together. Yesterday wasn't bad, although my tracking dropped of late in the day. Today I made it through the whole day, logging my intake and was in my desirable range....

I've not been active in BO for a while. I've been personally frustrated with my progress losing weight, and with the lack of communication among group members. Dot has kept the group from being closed, because she posts often. Thank you Dot. ...

16 April 2020 - Barely a diet diary - The whole thing grows wearying.... isolation is not so bad but the stress of thinking about when I do need to go out and what the final outcome of all this will be is intense. I talked myself out of going to ...

29 March 2020 - Diet Diary - Not dropping by much lately. This is a whole different deal, stress building on stress, not a good recipe for dieting or even for maintenance. Since I was already hovering 6-7 pounds above my goal, I don't count all of ...

22 March 2020 - Diet Diary - Not even sure what to say. Apocalyptic event? (not biblical) Plague? Worst spring ever? Who knows. Eating appropriately so far winning out over the little binges but I find myself struggling to find motivation to ...

13 March 2020 - Diet Diary - Holding steady, up a little, down a little. Have not been monitoring my salt intake very well lately but on a more positive note, my cholesterol intake is quite low overall. That and the statin I now take should help ...

9 March 2020 - Diet Diary - Holding my own, more or less. Not over stressing over the pounds, as long as it doesn't go higher. It kind of helps keep me on track because I have an ongoing goal, to get back to my goal. Had "spaghetti & meatballs" ...

7 March 2020 - Diet Diary - Been quiet around here lately. I've not been on vacation, just keeping a low profile and trying to stay on top of things. Are those things incompatible? Well, keeping my eating controlled has been a struggle. Days ...

20 Feb, 2020 - Diet Diary - Weight has been stable for the last 3 days. Would like to see some drop but stable is better than rising. Doing a fair job of controlling calories, salt is not going as well. Needed a low salt evening meal so used the ...

17 Feb 2020 - Diet Diary - Pretty good day, had a nice salad for supper and tried the applesauce/vinegar/lemon juice dressing (with a little actual fat-free dressing in it) and found it pretty tasty. Let me use less than half the bottled dressing I ...

16 Feb, 2020 - Diet Diary - Made a great soup today, hate to think of the salt content since it had chopped ham, canned chicken broth. can of red beans (drained & rinsed) cream of mushroom soup and cheese in it. Not salty was the broccoli, ...

13 Feb. 2020 - Diet Diary - Doctor appointment well fine, weighed in at 150.4 but note that their scale generally weighs 3-4 pounds heavier than mine at home. Still, I'm sitting at least 6 pounds over my goal so will need to keep working on it. She...

I've discovered a senior citizens center here in San Antonio. There are several actually. The nearest to me has a pool and exercise programs. It's free and it's very near. They provide free transportation to and from my house. I think this exercise ...

12 Feb, 2020 - Diet Diary - After a couple strict days, weight is down a couple pounds. Now to just stay on track to bring it down to goal. Salt counting remains more of a challenge than calorie counting. Worth it I guess, it seems to keep the BP ...

11 Feb, 2020 - Diet Diary - Nothing new to report, still hovering, have a couple good days then a not so good one and the body seizes the opportunity and back up pops the scale. Let my salt control efforts go for a couple days and .... yep, the BP ...

3 Feb. 2020 - Diet Diary - Still no downturn in weight although calories have been well controlled. Today just topped 1000 and salt was under 1000. Haven't checked BP tonight but the pattern has shown significant decrease in late night spikes so ...

02/02/2020 (a palindrome?) Diet Diary - Calorie intake today was very acceptable, under 1000. Salt intake was under 1100, also good. Took a nice walk, weather was lovely so it was nice to be outside for a while. Tomorrow will be nasty, according...
