    Check out the sugar content on 0% fat yoghurt (or 0% fat anything) though. Depending on your dietary needs, you might be better with higher fat (e.g. 3.5%), lower sugar.

    Very good thing to bring up. There is some good 0% fat yogurt - the stuff I use has 1 gram of carb in it and no added sugar. It's important to get the plain kind though. I use Greek style - more protein.

    I'm currently waking up to get moving before I start work at 7:30 PM. It's a temporary job and I missed exercise this morning. It rained and my ankles were sore from standing up at my desk for the past several shifts so I did some stretches for a few minutes and am eyeing my Gazelle Slider which I may do at "lunch" later tonight :)

    Can you get a mat to help cushion your stand? They really do make a difference when you do a lot of standing in one place for hours.

    I’m just following my body, whenever is hungry I eat, but within my calories for sure!

    Routine. Moving meant that all my routines were disrupted, and I'm just now getting some of them reestablished so that I take all my meds on time.

    I just got off some *kitten* meds which I had to take at 9am every day and I had to eat something with them. Last week I got off them after 6 months and yesterday I restarted Intermittent Fasting. IF definitely works for me :D

    Being prepared and doing things in good order. It always pays off but today it let us do something Boyfriend finds stressful without him melting down.

    Today, what worked for me was taking a measured amount of spelt flour and making leavened flatbread with it, with pieces scored so I had automatic 100 calorie sections. Then I had some with green soup and it was amazing. It worked well for portion control. Another thing that worked was listening to a really inspiring podcast about weight loss theory as it rekindled my interest and gave me a boost of motivation.

    What was the podcast? I am looking for some inspiration!

    In this case it was an episode of "The Art of Manliness" called "how to lose weight and keep it off forever." AOM has a fair amount of really interesting evidence based health topics, that are applicable for both genders. Good show! This does not go to a commercial link.
