Toe is healed, Shoulder is good...Relay is tomorrow night, I'll be walking all night, I'm sure I will stop here and there. Hopefully nothing else will happen between now and October ...when I plan on having the other toe "fixed". I've quit worrying about my weight, the more I worry, the more I gain, if I just ignore it, it will take care of itself.

It can be very frustrating!

I lost approx. 34 pounds since the first of the year and now I am gaining or staying at the same weight. I am just trying to plod through it by staying on the same basic lo carb eating plan that I have been using.

I am also trying to incorporate some mild exercise into the daily routine.

Just keep putting one foot in front of the other!

Great weight loss Aunt Bea! Since I quit messing/worrying about it, I have lost 5 pounds.

I don't worry about it anymore either. As long as I don't gain, I am fine. I have such terrible eating habits. I had a small bowl of vanilla ice cream for breakfast. And I probably won't eat until late tonight. I wouldn't care if I never ate again. I don't get hunger pains. And the only reason I eat is for the nutritional value.

Aunt Bea,
You may want to start adding in a "fatter day" each week. I find that when I rename Saturday to fatter day, and eat more carbs (healthy ones, but things I wouldn't normally eat on my low carb diet-like whole wheat bread or an oatmeal cookie) that I tend to lose more weight. I still watch the portions, but allow myself a little of the forbidden things. I'm not sure why this is, but when a friend told me about it, I tried it and it works!

PF, have a wonderful time on your walk tonight. My niece does that too, and we always give to the cause when she does. She has so much fun with her friends and co workers on that night. She talks about it for months. She also buys an illuminary in honor of my son (her cousin) and carries that for that lap.

I think that can be a good idea. I tend to eat the same things day after day and my body gets used to it. When you shake things up a little I think it stimulates your metabolism.

I wonder if Hallmark has a card for Fatter Day!

We have 4 luminarias, My Mom (Breast and Ovarian), Shrek (Bladder), Me (Breast and Ovarian) and our Daughter-In-Law who died from Lymphoma almost 20 years ago.

Thanks for the good wishes.
