Shrek manages to eat his dinner about 30 minutes before I get off work...I quit worrying about his dinner and just take care of mine. I too eat lunch around 2 or 3...

I forgot to weigh in today so will have to do it in the morning. I have been walking about 20 minutes a day around our complex at my own speed with my cane. I am trying to set my rides up for the pool but it is not going well. They have cut several of the busses for that route and it is a busy time with getting people to work, appointments and dialysis. Those are all priorities over social rides (which they classify exercise as). I am only driving to the grocery store these days and the pool is in the next Municipality. So, the walking is my next best choice.

I have a breathing test tomorrow (routine every 6 months regarding my asthma) so I will probably not walk again until Thursday. I don't want to be out of breath for the test. I will be taking our rapid transit there and back so that trip will take enough out of me without adding an extra walk.

But I am getting a lot of encouragement from reading about all of you. I am going through a pain flare at the moment and have realized I just can't expect too much of myself but also can't let it go completely. I have been using my pedal exerciser while sitting at the desk and doing my arm weights while watching TV. Every little bit helps.

Congratulations to all of you. You are doing great!

There are so many people (family) in & out of the house, with different meal schedules, it's making it a challenge to stay on track.
If you are going to snack, then keep crunchy foods on hand. They make you chew, and the act of chewing tells your brain that you are eating a meal. Snack on a really crunchy apple. celery, carrots. Foods that make a sound. I used to keep a jar of carrot and celery sticks in salted water in the fridge for the kids. I kept it right in front of the fridge so it was the first thing the saw. they may not have been fond of cooked veggies, but always ate them raw.

Caitlin eats everything I put infront of her but Daniel is fussy with veggies. He does love raw celery, green beans, carrots, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, baby spinach and baby cos lettuce and raw peas!

The only cooked veggies he will eat are broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, all squash, beetroot and sweet potatoes. He eats baked beans but I have to add fried onion, mayo, chutney and hotsauce.
He likes brown lentils in brown rice with chopped tomatoes and onion.
If I make soup he'll eat any veggies!
Strange child lol!

Up five pounds, but I am not surprised or upset. I blew the diet a few times and while it is not a weight-loss diet, it does affect it. It is pick myself up, dust myself off and take another run at it!

Just the fact that you have found a diet that does work for you, makes you a winner. Keep hanging in there. Those five pounds will drop off when you least expect them to. Won't you be happily surprised?

Thanks, Addie! You are so right - when I first lost the 15 pounds so easily I was so surprised. And it will happen again when I can get myself to stay on track again.

This isn't a diet I would choose to go on, but all the health benefits (less pain, depression; more movement, energy) far outweigh the strict boundaries of the diet. And if I don't follow it I know that gaining weight is probably the least of my worries - I don't feel good and that is the most important factor for me.

Like all of you with your diabetes, if I cheat, I am putting myself at risk. It isn't quite the same risk, but I "get sick" and have been there way too often in my life.

You'll get there, slow and steady wins the race Just think in kilograms, you're only up 2.2 kgs!

I gain that much once a month for 5 - 7 days lol!

That sounds so much better than five pounds.
