Pasta King, report in daily!! We love it!! The pasta won't kill you and as I said in a previous post, if you feel the need for it, it is better to program a small amount into your diet as a treat. No guilt trips then and you can have it as a reward. It becomes bad when you just keep on doing it. The dietician is right to a degree. When you deny yourself something that you really want, if you are unable to completely give it up, it is better to have a small amount every so often than to punish yourself for an indulgence nor to eat something that you don't really want in its place as you will end up eating more of the alternate item to compensate.

You are going brilliantly. Keep it up!! We are right behind you.

Thank you, You are very kind

I have some big news. I am getting back into horse training as well!!
Training horses is will for SURE get me in shape. You burns turns of fat riding.

About 3 or 4 years ago, I had a farm I was renting. The owners sold to builders. I felt so upset, I never went back to it. I feel that the pain has gone away, I learned from it, and I am ready to go back.

Philadelphia doesn't have a Riding Police Force. They need one. My idea is to get back in shape, become a cop, then ask the city if they will get a mounted unit again. I feel that it could be a tourist attraction for the city.
How? Because I would start an squad of amazing riders and horses. Have you ever seen the White Lippizaners of the Spanish Riding School? That is the kind of riding I do, it is called Dressage and at one point, I was at Grand Prix. That is the highest level. Philadelphia could have a dressage demo from time to time. It could do to the Police force, what the Blue Angles do for the Navy.

That is my idea anyway.........

Either way, to become a cop and also train people's horses on the side, would really be a joy for me each day. Plus, I'll stay fit.

Hi again Pasta, glad to hear about all your great ideas.

Have tried many things and have failed in some, but not because I did not give it my best.

Know you are giving it all your best.

A lot of our families were on the job. It is a fantastic profession. I didn't do it and sometimes I regret not joining the force.

You gotta make it, you have too many people on your side.

You can do it, just keep the goal in mind.

I haven't read this entire thread Pasta but it sounds like you're real dedicated and are doing well. I need to suggest however that it isn't just about weght, but about body fat. if you hit the gym and worked on the bigger muscles like chest, back and legs, you'd likely burn much more fat at the same weight primarily because muscle burns more calories than fat.

You don't need to cut out pasta, instead use a wheat pasta. Many people have problems with the texture but after the first two or three times you get used to it.

I'd also suggest visiting this discussfitness dot com They have a lot of good suggestions on nutrition, diet, and overall fitness.

I have taken to eating eggs as a midnight snack, or fruit. You guys think 2 eggs a day will hurt me?

I am also seeing that I need a gym. Pushups and sit ups just are not doing it for me. I need a trainer once a week, and a week to be ready for the trainer. Its all about the big MO.

---Cheated last night. I had 2 slices of pizza with mushrooms. Oh well.

----Also, not losing any weight
This is why I am joing a gym sometime this week.

Your fat could be turning into muscle, hence the lack of change on the scales. Also if you have increased your fluid levels, that will also impact on the scales. You should be looking at measurements as well as scales. Scales by themselves aren't the best indicator.

As to the eggs, the amount of people that have a two egg omelette for breakfast and havn't carked it yet would suggest that you will be okay for the brief period of this fitness campaign. I just wouldn't keep it up for ever.
