So it's a constant part of my life, maintaining my weight, and counting calories. So anyway, I don't want to make anyone feel bad, just because I am in my healthy weight range. I'm more comfortable with myself when I'm at the lower end (I could go all the way down to 95 and still be considered healthy, although I would be too skinny for my own taste at that weight).

You're more than welcome to post in my thread I only wanted to lose 3 kgs and I've done that this week. Now I just need to maintain my weight.
My biggest reason for trying to eat better is for my health, not weight loss.
It is hard to lose a small amount of weight if you're not really overweight. People are not as supportive and try and feed you all the time. Makes it really hard if you love food!

Normally I would have had about 10 by now lol! Learning to behave myself again!
Well done Snip

I can't think of anyone here who would be offended by your calorie counting and posts. We are all here to support each other in our goals to lose or gain (Snip) and eat healthier. I appreciate recipes where the calories are set out per serving. Saves me a bunch of math.

Thanks for your efforts!

I agree, we are all here to support each other. Even those of us that are always in trouble for not eating enough

Food log for today...

I really must try and eat breakfast but it's hard! I'm not a breakfast person. We went to a friends house after church too and got offered nothing but coffee. Just had fruit when I got home.
Very bad food day!
