  • I am feeling a tad whiney, but I am flinging that off to get back in the groove. February and March of this year one bizzare issue after another. The supposed spider bite, then getting MRSP, and trying to get rid of it. I have had a number of telemedicine visits this year, not too bad. Then as a passenger in a friends car,…
  • Almond flour does not have the same shelf life as say white flour or whole wheat flour. On average almond flour is really best if used in 6 months and kept in the refrigerator. I have put in freezer before, and something happens with it, but in refrigerator it stays fine. I actually had one in refrigerator up to 9 months.…
  • I have done this exactly twice. And I pretty much did what you did one of the times. The other time I literally set my alarm for 4 hours after I went to bed. Reason was at that time my dosage for my long acting which is lantus was I thought pretty high. So by taking that dosage of short acting I was very concerned what…
  • I have started walking again. I do around 10PM at night, kind of with a neighbor, we stay about 10 feet apart or so back to front, and back again is 3.5 miles. Doing three times a week, is goal. For now going halfway so getting in 1.75 miles this way. On other days doing cycling. Working with what is called I think a yoga…
  • Good Evening, well I am a type 2 diabetic. And while I was pregnant 27 years ago, I did have gestational Diabetest which I did control through the rest of the pregnancy through diet. I kind of remember that the carbs were set at 150, so yes I can see 100 being ok to do so. One of the things to watch for are the foods that…
  • Drink 3 quarts of water every day. Done Work on hamstring stretches, dang they are painful. Seems to be the tight hamstrings are tied to the knee pain, well some of it. Get 30 min walk in. Done Get 30 min in on bike will do this evening. Stay within Calorie allotment Staying on track Over the weekend, boy got arm workout,…
  • I too decided nope not getting the special permit. And I consistently park my SUV out far away from the store door. For a long time most of my friends just assumed I was being overly paranoid about getting the doors scratched, or little bumps on it. Well maybe a bit of that, but really it was about making me walk farther…
  • I totally get your comment. The key and we all read it over and over, and I have found it to be very true. Is to find something you are willing to do long term. So even if you never are totally passionate it about, still something that you can convince yourself to do. I started with walking, at first walking 500 feet was a…
  • The sweet and good and what I refer to the funny memories we have of those who have passed away. Are so often what can make life tolerable for us. Sometimes sharing good memories with others that knew that person, can make you feel renewed. I am sorry for your loss of someone that meant so much to you.
  • I am trying to remember who posted about this on main threads. Someone with thousands of posts. Not Pav8888 who is very knowledgeable, but may have been involved on the post. I think it was someone who does a lot of running, and mentioned info was in a running magazine of some type. The discussion was around steps counted…
  • If you find a food eating plan that works for you long term, and you are happy with it. Then hooray, all is good. And what works for you, there are others that will say yes, me too. And lots of others that will say nope not for me. Me, I do low carb, which is kind of close to Keto but is not Keto. My big difference from…
  • The fear, and panic to me is truly being whipped to a frenzy by the media. The facts are every single year, take any state in the USA. Old people die in Nursing homes, this is not something new. But the media is making this out to be the plague of 2020. The President of the USA/Trump made one of his wild silly tweets at…
  • So you say you are an expert, goody for you. But unless you have actually been in someone's shoes, and done a journey of losing substantial weight. And then maintained that weight at a reasonable daily calorie amount, plus some type of fitness routinue. It is just all talk. Oh and the other thing, that just kills me when…
  • I kind of had a pleasant shocker of one earlier today. I have been doing lots of sorting, and today it was jewelry. Next week, we are having quite a few windows replaced. So all furniture must be moved a certain distance away from windows. So while doing this, I also have been sorting, keep, donate, take for gold and or…

  • In reading so many different discussions here on larger losers, it has really helped me get through a phase I will call it. Yes, I do become scale obsessed no other word for it. But what my issue has been is not losing any weight, it was how upset I became with myself for any week that I lost less than 2lbs. Reading this…
  • I had updated my face picture on FB, about 3 weeks ago as my new photo. And for whatever reason. Even though I have been on FB since I never went and looked at comments or anything relating to that picture. So today I got brave and did so. And friends and family who know me, as in face to face but have not seen me for…
  • Well is end of day, but am going to write in what my goals were today. Drink, drink and be merry, water that is. Got my 64 oz of pure water down. And some cocoa, and coffee as well so made to 90oz. Have some out of state family coming in. So house must be clean. So planned and did clean house for about 3 hours today. As in…
  • None, I eat carbs but not bread, pasta, rice. They do hoirrible things to my blood sugar numbers. Type 2 diabetic. I use alternate flours instead.
  • WOW, I just read both of them, and all the links that were attached to them as well. And I feel so much better now. I was to the point of thinking oh no, have I sunk in a rut or what. I was semi cruising along and then I was not. I got bit on the 12th, to get it treated I had the dubious pleasure of going to 2 Urgent cares…
  • Remember even with the scale, to figure out how many calories per day you should be eating. Because based on what you feel you need to lose before surgery. You are going to need a large daily deficit. For women, MFP will suggest 1200 as the low end.
  • Dean Jacobs Tuscany Bread Dipping mix, in a grinder bottle. I grind up and use in all sorts of dishes. Order via Amazon.
  • Did you remember to add in how many servings it was for? When adding the ingredients, how sure are you that the ones you grabbed were correct? Remember many of the food items/ingredients on the database are user entered so they may not be accurate. Example I often see as the reminder is one of the garlic ones will show…
  • The one time I was denied it was Mortgage Insurance after we refinanced, it was weight related so to speak, it was due to my A1C number, diabetes. It was too high, and it was at the time. And I agree with bmeadows380, both my Primary care, and Endocrinologist have not really said anything to me about my BMI. They both have…

  • The mini eggs, I will be buying them but not for me. Will be sending to my daughter in S Korea it is a candy she cannot get over there, along with the Reeces peanut butter cups, ok eggs at this time of year. I think she said they do have their version of peeps though. The other thing that is big at this time of the year is…
  • First I will admit to not being terribly religious. But for a number of years, I happen to have a friend who is, and eventually she calls me and keeps asking me to pair with her and give something up. Being that we have been doing this for oh about 43 years now, I will admit it is a habit. I have noticed that I have been…
