I'm down 7 pounds from last week, the warmer weather definitely has me eating less and moving more.

Wow, PF, that's a pound a day!

Yes, I was mindless munching at work. Good for me food, but it is constant. With the good weather I can go for a walk instead of stuff my face.

Nice PF! I miss walking, but my ankles yell at me every time I try to go too far. Getting old is a b.

Awesome, PF!

I am up a bit but the good news is my iron levels are starting to rise again. They are still low, but steadily working towards normal. I am feeling stronger and love that my face has a little bit of colour.

However, now that my energy is returning and I want to get back to the pool, my bad (as in two replacements in a month 5 years ago) knee is suddenly acting up badly. I don't remember twisting it, but I am having trouble walking. The pool will be good for that but I will have to start slowly so as not to make it worse.

We are working towards a low carb diet again. The only problem is that TB has to take sandwiches to work and gluten free bread is full of carbs (rice or potato flours as the basis). Because he is eating in the bus salads are awkward and he can't have anything that needs heating. Plus, I tend to make myself a sandwich for the evening when I make his. So we are trying to eat meat and salad for lunch. Breakfast has been bacon and plain yogurt for me and bacon and a smoothie for TB.

I am hoping we will both start seeing some results soon - both in feeling thinner and being healthier. I am not worrying about a scale for the time being. Though that will come as I want to look good for our vows renewal.

How about wrapping the sandwich fillings in a lettuce leaf.

Another idea is to take a slice of deli ham, turkey, roast beef etc and spreading a condiment on it adding a slice of cheese and rolling it up like a cigar to make it into a finger food.

Good luck!

Glad to hear you're doing better, LP :-) Have you been tested for your ferritin level? It's related to iron levels and gives the physician more information about your condition.

For TB's lunches, think about making finger foods, like salad or sandwich ingredients on skewers with a dipping sauce. Here's an example: http://www.southernliving.com/food/e...rtizer-recipes

Preaching to the choir...odd thinking about how I used to run to school (2.5 miles) and back home every day. Now, it is a chore to walk anywhere.

My metabolism has changed since the surgery (I must have just been feeding what they took out) but, trying to find what doesn't put the weight on is a B.

You know it's time to lose weight when you accidentally put your pants on backwards and they fit better...

Getting old is very hard work. Getting thin again is even harder work.
