    It is ok either way. I can look up the conversion and do it. What ever you are more comfortable doing.

    Fight the cravings. It is hard sometimes. I am trying to stop potatoe chips. Last night I craved them so bad. I have been using rice cakes to get the crunch. The best part is they are only 35 calories. Is there anything you could substitute for chocolate.

    When I want potato chips I either go with celery with cream cheese or PB or I make fries out of turnips

    Good evening all. I hope everyone is ready for the weekend. Only 1 day left if you aren't ready.
    Check in for 6/30:
    Steps - 4760 plus 20 minutes bike moderate effort. No long walk today.
    Calories - 2240 or close. I think I got everything but not sure.
    Exercise - gym after lunch. 10 machines but still reduced weight. Not as reduced as last time though. Also 20 minutes recumbent bike.
    @lindamtuck2018 the walk was my trip. Sorry for the confusion. I was researching how much new glasses would cost.

    My app quit working today. I Uninstaller it but haven't found out how to reinstall yet. Will ask daughter tomorrow.

    Im allowed dark chocolate but was going to limit it to a small piece at the weekend. Last night i had banana with greek yoghurt with tsp of honey and it satisfied my sweet craving a bit but not entirely . Sounds like your doing great, its good you found a low cal alternative

    Hello everyone, my names lis and I'm from the UK but have been living in Spain for 20 years. 59 years old, and I've been losing and gaining all my life! Last August I was 276lb but by April had lost 60lb. Had 8 weeks off on maintenance but now I'm back and ready to lose another 21lb :)
    Think I've messed up already as I didn't realise I should weigh in last Monday sorry!

    I love turnip. Send me the recipe for the turnip fries. I am trying to watch my cholesterol so cream cheese is out but depending on how the turnip is fried it maybe ok. My dietitian told me I can never do keto because of my high cholesterol. It was a diet that always intrigued me.

    Amazing loss! I remember a trainer at my old gym was a competitive body builder. He was a big chocolate addict. When on training he would line up 6 chocolate chips each night and slowly eat them to help with his cravings.

    it is a bit confusing when we start the July challenge in June. Each monthly challenge runs 4 or 5 weeks. No worries and I am sure you will have a great week.

    Exercise: mini walks and I washed all my baseboards

    It’s a long weekend here in Canada. It always throws me off schedule when hubby is off. I am heading to the pool early today as I am having coffee with friends at 10. So far our flights are ok.

    Happy Friday!
